Would've been cool it was "reveal an Elemental card from your hand or pay 1" instead, so that if you didn't have another Elemental, it would still be a 2/1 for 1R

Am I the only one who remembers how nasty Jackal Pup was? I run this in an Elemental RDW based on the Lorwyn/Shadowmoor block and I have NEVER regretted it. Sure it doesn't have haste, but a 2 power 1-drop is never a bad thing.

Goldmeadow Stalwart might be better in the overall sense, but it achieves relatively the same effect. Giving it haste probably would have improved it vastly, though. Compared to it's brethren, this guy is one of the weaker ones, as the goblin one has fear, the merfolk one has a draw card function, the elf is big and deathtouches, and the kithkin one can withstand first turn weenies.

First turn Savannah Lions except built for tribal elemental decks.

This thing needs haste.

White's better at weenies and Kithkin are the better creature type.

@DoragonShinzun: Have you have ever heard about the "white weenie" deck archetype? There you have your answer. Unlike white, red has tonnes of efficient burn spells (duh), so they actually generally don't need as efficient creatures.

Also, as it seems no-one else has pointed it out, this card has wicked sick art. It's worth at least half a star by itself, I think!

...*Begins cracking up*
How is is that WHITE gets equally aggressive creatures in their relevant tribe for less? How?

3/1 or not interested

goldmeadow stalwart is much better

defenintly should have had haste, its often a dead wait in my elemental deck exept for the fact that it garentees some atack, while all the other elementals in it die after one turn. then again, so will this guy most likely
