@Lavrant Infinite mana of any/all colors, actually; once you get enough blue mana you can keep recasting the griffin and get mana of other colors

I saw this used with scary efficiency when I played against a legacy goblin deck.
Splash green into your goblin deck (maybe gives some sideboard enchantment hate?) can exile your Goblin Matron or Goblin Ringleader to play the cards you just got, any maybe even come out with even more extra mana (Goblin Warchief).

If Goblin Recruiter was not banned then you could stack your deck with Ringleaders/Warchiefs to put an entire army out once food chain drops

Although engines can be hard to get going due to the "creatures-only" clause, there's still a lot of cool stuff you can do with the chain. A creature like Priest of Gix can turn three mana into seven, letting you through down a Pelakka Wurm quickly. "Free" creatures like Vine Dryad are a great bonus, essentially giving you five free mana. With a chain of Llanowar Sentinels, you can also get a bunch of easy mana. If you have a mass-token generator like Pure Reflection, however, you can dump your hand of creatures all in one turn!

Since this is green and green has a decent number of big creatures this is potentially fantastic as mana acceleration. But it's gotta be played right. And it's probably absolutely useless in some formats (Legacy....), but for games that will likely be going longer, like casual or multiplayer casual games, it can be great. Think about it, your first 2 turns you play 2 creatures with a CMC of 1. If the first one was Llanowar Elves. On turn 3 play this. With Llanowar Elves, BOOM! Exile both creatures and you've got a Turn 4 Terra Stomper or better. Or if you tap Llanowar elves for first, you can get a Terastodon, Symbiotic Wurm, or any other 8 mana creature out. Or, alternately you could play another creature (preferably with CMC 4) and exile all of them for a potential 9 mana on turn 4. Myojin of Life's Web that early would be nice. Or a number of other things. It just has to be ... (see all)

Sigh, this card is now 10 dollars due to Misthollow Griffin.

@Snugglie:
Wistful Selkie has a hybrid mana cost, not a hybrid mana cost. The CMC is always 3. Even for spells like Reaper King, the CMC is a constant (in this case, 10).

Is that Yavimaya Elder's stick in the ground? :( Looks like somebody drew a card.
