Week's Card Selector
|Well, I start my week
off with Wood Elves, a favorite of a friend of
mine. While many people write this card off
as crap, it is actually not as bad as it looks.
Granted a 1/1 for 3 is bad, it's ability can be
good in the right deck, and most of all, in the
right format. This guy has possibilities in
extended, especially in the new season, but not in
Type II. So, a 2 in constructed (a combination
of a 2.5 in Extended, and a 1.5 in
In limited, I don't particularly care for him as a
high pick. Sure if you're playing green he
speeds you up, but again, that 1/1 for 3 really
hurts. I can be played, but he's a 20, 21,
22, or 23 card for your deck. A 1.5 in
This is a decent
extended card....for about 3 more months.
The ability to grab a basic forest is not that
exceptional. The ability to grab a Tropical
Island is some good. Mostly reserved for
Recur decks, though.
In limited, it's not horrid. A critter
than helps accelerate and smooth mana as well as
thin the deck and play speed bump can play on most
of my teams.
Limited - 3.5
Current Price - $.25
It is so risky to slam a 187
creature. Wood Elves might make it into a casual 5
color deck because it can grab dual lands... but
there are other ways to do this that are even
better in that environment.
In todays T2, I can't think
of any reason why you wouldn't use Llanowar Elves
over these guys.
Does anyone play Limited
formats using 7th ed?
Wood Elves have always been good at tempo
For 3 mana, you get a 1/1 (usually worth 1 mana)
land from your library into play (usually worth 2
mana). So this card basicly allows you to
cards at once. Combine that with the deck
that getting a land from your library gets you,
you got a solid, at worst, card.
In Limited, I would play this simply because it
out my library and gets me to my bombs faster,
allowing my mana to steep up to higher casting
I might have.
Elves are fairly decent in Limited as they push
you up one land. In Constructed they were only
decent when you could get a dual land with them.
Currently, that's only in Type 1 and 1.5. Poopy.
Constructed a 1.5. Limited a 2.
