Battle Cry

Battle Cry is a keyword ability.


Whenever this creature attacks, each other attacking creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn.

Battle cry is an ability introduced in Mirrodin Besieged. It is similar to the ability exalted, although different in a few ways.

Battle Cry vs. Exalted:

An exalted creature doesn't need to be attacking for the ability to work, and exalted works for the creature with exalted as well. Also, with exalted, the creature gets +1/+1, not +1/+0. But with battle cry, every attacking creature will get the ability. As opposed to Exalted, which triggers only when a creature attacks alone, Battle Cry's effect scales up with the number of attacking creatures. Two notable cards with battle cry are Hero of Bladehold and Hero of Oxid Ridge.
