Holy crap. I just played a game where someone used this to get to 267 life.

And then I killed him in two turns.

(Elves-on-elves, I had Elvish Guidance, Arbor Elf, and Ursapine.)

Run Well of Lost Dreams to draw your deck, it's not like you wouldn't have the mana.

The epitome of (non-combo) elf decks. Unbelievably powerful when you're ahead; does very little if you're losing.

The big problem with this card, as I mentioned on the Onslaught printing, is that it doesn't say 'number of elves you control. So if you're not careful and this creature gets Mind Controlled or the like and you don't have an answer in your hand when you need it, this card will screw your game faster you can imagine.

@ Revelation666 and Superllama12

I understand your views on Elf decks although I can't really agree with them, when I was a new player going up against guys who had been playing for years I found Elves to be a good starting point. I was able to build a deck quite quickly and (more importantly) cheaply that that was competitive and enabled to me to join in the game and enjoy it instead of just having my backside repeatedly handed to me.

I confess I still have that Elf deck, although as I have gotten better at the game I have fine tuned it from time to time to keep it as good as it can be, and I've never had to fork out a fortune to get the cards to do so. I don't often use this deck deck now, I only pull it out when I'm having a bad streak and want a quick, (almost) sure win. This lack of play time has led to that deck taking on an air of infamy and most of my mates fear it, which I like.

On this card however, along with Rhys the Redeemed, Wirew... (see all)

Life gain is worthless, so this card sucks.

...Is the mentality I was expecting to see here. Thankfully it seems like most commenters here realize that a life gain effect this cheap and strong basically means you don't need to block. This card is fantastic.

Unimaginably broken in an Elf deck. It's cards like this that make you wonder if Wizards actually playtests anything. It was all too common to gain around 30 life a turn with this beauty in play alongside wirewood lodge, seeker of skybreak, wirewood symbiote and a few more pointy-ears.

Sure, stuff like infest and pyroclasm was around, but caller of the claw was, too.

Incredibly broken and a annoying. I hate Elf decks. Only a vague sense of nostalgia prevents me from rating this a 0/5 despite how amazing it is.

My friend rolls a vintage elf deck and kicks everybody's balls with this card, so I turned to milling XD
