Loses Flying, but gains the most relevant creature type in the game. I'm down with that.

@sarroth "Get one into play and they all come into play for the price of one" For the price of one?

Excellent card. With the right acceleration you can easily play 3 in one turn. Then Overrun.

Back in the day this was amazing. 2/3 for 3 was the norm for a vanilla creature, and being able to get 2 of them (4/6 total) for one card and 5 mana was damn efficient. Now unfortunately they can't compete with things like Leatherback Baloth. Still worthwhile in Elf tribal though.

{2}{G} for a 2/3 Elf is okay but the fact that playing elfs will give you lots of mana. So paying {5}{G}{G}{G} for 4 2/3 Elfs isn't bad and won't be that hard.

multikicker-esque, and not bad.

Well, this ability does chain, but for each additional 2/3 you pay an additional 1G, so it's more like multikicker. To get 2 you pay 3GG, for 3 you pay 4GGG, and for 4 of them you pay 5GGGG. Given that they are 2/;3 though this could well be worth it, especially in an elf deck since those are usually very good at generating mana.

This ability can chain. Damn. If you were creating an Elf deck I see no reason to not have four of these in it. Get one into play and they all come into play for the price of one. Priceless. And 2/3 is not fantastic, but more than I would expect for a chained ability like that. 4.5/5

No this does not work like multikicker at all. Multikicker is an activated ability that can be used when the spell is cast. This is a triggered ability, you can tell by the wording.

When this happens you may do this (Check)

When it comes into play, so when this happens, you can keep reading, when you do this you may do this, it seems pretty straightforward to me.

When it comes into play, when you have done this, you may pay 1G, blah.

"602.1. Activated abilities have a cost and an effect. They are written as "Cost: Effect. Activation instructions (if any).""

This is not an activated ability, it doesn't have a cost, the ":" is very critical to identify it.

Hum, "603.1. Triggered abilities have a trigger condition and an effect. They are written as "Trigger condition, effect," and begin with the word "when," "whenever," or "at." They can also be expressed as "When/Whenever/At trigger event, effect.""

Seems like a triggered ability doesn't it?

"603.2c An ability triggers only once ... (see all)

It's a great card. It just barely misses the cut in my elf deck, mainly because it doesn't tap for mana and doesn't give all elves +1/+1. Still, it's pretty huge. If you're playing it in the right deck, they aren't likely to remain at 2/3. Combos great with Coat of Arms (you are playing Coat of Arms with your elves, aren't you?).
