Quirion Dryad
by David Grabkowitz

Quirion Dryad is one of those first look 1/1 rare creatures that at first
glace, looks so bad you want a refund.  But if you look closer you'll see an
exraordinary power.
This is the cards overlay:

Quirion Dryad        [1], Forest

Creature -- Dryad        Planeshift rare (gold swirl)

Whenever you play a white, blue,
black, or red spell, put a +1/+1
counter on Quirion Dryad.

natural forces to adapt to unatural

anyway the power allows you to put a +1/+1 counter on Quirion Dryad whenever
you play a spell other than green.  I men come on! This card can dominate the
board if your running a multicolor/ green deck!
I know from experiance.  I was playing my friend and I put down Quirion
Dryad. It went on for a while play spell, place counter, and so on.  The next
time I looked at the card it was a 9/9 creature! ( I play a  blue, white,
green, red deck).  I easily beat his Darigaaz the igniter and avatar of might.

All in all I think this card would do well in almost any deck, as long as you
have a green part included.
