Card of the Day - Strength of Solidarity

This is a play on all those white team pump enchantments.  White really wants to have a bunch of dudes to swing with, and Strength of Solidarity plays into that.

This card has a lot of knobs to turn to make it correct, developmentally speaking. The mana cost, the number of creatures required, the size of the buff, and any keyword abilities can all be changed to make this card correct for the format it belongs in.

I plugged it in the uncommon slot because it has a tiny bit of build-aroundness attached.  Not every white deck will want it, but most will. It gives incentive to get smaller white creatures, of which most sets have many.

In retrospect, I think +1/+2 and vigilance is too big of a boost for uncommon, especially for all creatures at once, but I made the card that way, and I'm sticking to it.
