Essentially 3 mana for 4 damage. The the tap ability means this card can take out 4/4 fliers and not get taken out himself. Sweet card, great defender.

My favorite art for this card. Seems like a decent ablility to kill off some flyers but more than likely your opponent just wouldn't attack with their creature if you are going to kill it, but that's still helpful. I think if this card had reach it would be much more playable.

I, unlike TreeTrunkMaster, do not like this card art at all. At the very least, the Femeref are black people.

I find it bizarre that the only humans in 7th edition are all white. No diversity amongst them.

Cool flavor text. I personally hate cards like this. The opponent simply wont attack with his fliers with toughness<5 until he finds an answer to the archers. It probably wont actually kill any fliers unless the opponent is swinging in for the win anyway.

The only good art for this card. And this is a great card for its cost.

Raking Canopy is strictly better.

No, wholelottalove, Raking Canopy is not strictly better. It can't attack, and it costs double-green.

But it is better.

In any event, a big old pinger, even a very situational one, is interesting in green. An example of a card fitting for flavor rather than mechanics.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
