    This is a slow spell, so it's vulnerable to disruption and is not a battle trick.

    However, those are premium stats for only 4-cost. Nothing else in the game lets you add that many stats permanently for that cost. This card is low-key VERY good ... and it specifically works extremely well with Taric's level-up condition. 

    Just as comparisons - Taric's champion burst spell grants 3/3 for one more cost than this spell; Back to Back in Demacia gives 3/3 to two different units for the turn only, at 2 more cost than this spell.

    Permanent stats, in a region that has spellshield and healing, are not trivial. I think this spell is low-key very good.

    2/5. The spell gives good stats for its mana cost, but as far as competitive decks go, permanent stat buff spells only see play in cheesy decks that aim to win the game off of the back of a unit that gets really unfair with stat buffs, like Fiora, Braum or Sparklefly. It sounds like a good complement to Taric, except Taric can't replicate it. The fact that it allows for counterplay, whereas most buff spells do not, also makes it harder to make this work.
