This is absolutely amazing in elf decks. By the time you cast this (usually turn 4-6ish), you're drawing maybe 10-11 cards.

This is a must-have for any deck that deploys a large number of creatures, yet will run out of steam at the first sign of Wrath of God. Refills your hand and lets you keep going even after a huge blow like that.

It's a good card, but if you get hit by a wrath of god it's too late to play it, and if you play it before the wrath of god your opponent may choose to hold it back until you've played some of those cards you just drew.

That said, this has the potential to get you a lot of very useful card drawing. I find that elves tend to win very fast (before, or about at the time, you played out most of your hand, so I wouldn't play this in a good elf deck. I intend to play this in a saprolings and fungus deck I'm going to make soon. That deck might take a bit longer to really get going, and this might be just the thing for when I have played most of my hand.

That fugly creature in the art is sure regal. Positively inspires worship.

I don't know about you but I don't think I would ever pay 5 mana for a 5/5 with no abilities, and most definitely I would never pay 6

Regardless an ability like this can become very nice in decks with a lot of green token generators like saprolings and elves.

The card drawing ability puts this card over the top. Yes, it IS cmc=7, but you're going to pay 5 to 6 mana for most 5/5 creatures w/o any special abilities. So, the extra 1 to 2 mana for (in most cases) drawing several cards is well worth it, IMO.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
