Elves of Deep Shadow

She's back, and she's even more popular now that she can be played in Type 2 again. Elves of Deep Shadow is yet another way to add acceleration to your deck. While Birds is more versatile, and Llanowar Elves don't hurt you in the process, sometimes ya just need more, ya know? So add a few EoDS to your deck, and you're on your way. A nice way to start out Mana Elf week.

Very playable in limited, especially in Ravnica, where Green and Black are often working together in the same deck. I'll often play it anyhow, even if I'm not going Black, just for the acceleration if I need it. In casual Green Black decks, or again, those looking for creature features or acceleration, not a bad add.

Elves of Deep Shadow

This card is generally useful in the G/B decks that happen to be floating around. It does come with the price of hitting you for a points of damage, but ti does allow you to diversify your mana base rather nicely.

Elves of Deep Shadow - This card has been a favorite of players since it originally showed up in The Dark. I'd say there's two things that made it so popular. First was that it was one of the first cards to show cooperation between black and green. Second is that Jesper Myrfors' art from The Dark was awesome and not just a little alluring. Mana elves are always a big hit in all their forms. From the original Llanowar Elves to EoDS to Quirion Elves to the Priest of Titania, they've all been very well recieved. Deep Shadow fits right in with the Golgari of Ravnica, and it's always nice to see cards from my favorite set reprinted. And the best part is that Elves of Deep Shadow is useful, too. In nearly every format, a 1-drop mana producer is an effective thing.
