Here is a card.

Creature- Elemental Beast

When I play it, it gets killed before I can get in any attacks in with it. I mean, pretty much anything can take it out- Bolt, Path, Doom Blade. It's the biggest target ever. It is therefore useless.

As for our soulstroke here, I have to say that I really liked the elementals in Lorwyn. It's a little unfortunate that pretty much every tribe save Giants and Treefolk stole their thunder (though they fought back with very splashable Evokers), but it's certainly a big enough staple in other sets to deserve a lord (casual fans rejoyce!). I also like the fun things he can get up to by essentially giving all your elementals Flash (the cost reduction is the boring-yet-practical part to me). We've got enough com... (see all)

Incandescent Soulstoke, lovingly nicknamed "Candy" while I played a Flamekin deck when it was legal in Standard, is one of the more flavorful Lord cards Wizards has printed. You have the pump, yes, which is a staple. But you have the activated ability to shoot out Elementals at a discounted, hasty speed until the "burn out" at the end of turn. Very aligned with Red's flavor (ephemeral bursts of raw power) as well as Flamekin (passionate, fiery citizens of Lorwyn).

4.5/5 for both utility and flavor. Print more cards like this, Wizards.

This is the center of so many combos, it's not fair. 5/5

Brutal with Nova Chaser.

As a compulsive elementalist, this card is so awesome. Always fun to be able to get an elemental (incarnation) in at instant speed to respond :-)

Amazing card! There are a lot of powerful elementals, and her low cost means that you can pull out some very tough creatures early in the game.

Similar in power potential to the much lauded Master Transmuter , with the added bonus of haste and a boost!

This thing is pretty beefy with the right backup...

It won't make you sad when the Vengevine you just put onto the battlefield is put into the graveyard at end of turn, knowing it'll return soon.

I'd like to see her with Cauldron of Souls. Use her Ability to shoot an elemental into play, end of turn, sac it, but use Cauldron for Persist so When it leaves play, it comes back. And her +1/+1 To Elementals will make the -1/-1 Counter seem non-existent. Hello Horde of Notions for 2 Cost.

Buff and Sneak attack for elementals.
