Leaf-Crowned Elder

A 3/5 for 2GG is decent stats, and its Kinship ability is absolutely amazing. If it triggers, you play the top card of your library for free, and then draw the next card. It's effectively a painless Phyrexian Arena, except even stronger since it outright gives you the spell without paying for it.

Constructed- 4.5
Casual- 4.9
Limited- 3.5

Leaf-Crowned Elder

When you see the words "play it without paying its mana cost" on a Magic card, it's often time to panic. There are a few good cards to cheat out with the Elder - Doran, Eternal Witness, and Nameless Inversion spring to mind - but at only during your upkeep and only once each turn, it's not going to break the universe. Pretty solid with Harbingers, though.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 2/5

Leaf-Crowned Elder

A fairly cheap kinship card for it's effect. If you are going to build a treefolk deck, this is a must as most treefolk are real expensive and having this in there will allow you to save some mana for other effects. You could not ask for a better choice than to have the treefolk that makes all treefolk indestructible.

Constructed: 3 in block, 2 otherwise
Casual: 3
Limited: 4
