Somebody mentioned this card in Grand Architect's page. Figured I'd point that out to those who see this card before the Architect on their own.

For all of you wondering about the name, it means butterfly in Welsh. Shadowmoor/Lorwyn had a vague Celtic theme and Wizards seem to have forgotten what a butterfly looks like...

The better infinite combo is: heartstone, paradise mantle, and this.

Curse this game. I have a deck built partially around the Pili-Pala/Heartstone combo; I use either Presence of Gond or Multani's Harmony to achieve either infinite elves or infinite mana. However, I keep running across new (to me) cards that would work well in the deck. In this case, it's Paradise Mantle, which would eliminate a single point of failure. (There's also Utopia Vow, which would work, but Paradise Mantle is faster and more versatile.)

...now if only I could find something comperable to the Argothian Elder, I'd eliminate the last remaining SPoF.

I don't really think you understand the combo BelloAbril. heartstone makes the ability cost 1 less making it: "1; untap add one mana of any color...", with paradise mantle adding one mana whenever it becomes tapped. Tapping it for paradise mantle generates the 1 mana needed to use it's ability to untap itself which adds another one mana .thus ,evertime pili-pala is untapped it generates an extra one mana of any color which can add together infinite times.

This has been confirmed as a new pokemon.

Bluh. The horribly broken untap symbol makes combos so pitifully effortless. Just glancing at this card tells me Mana Echoes plus Presence of Gond on this is game over.

Or, rather than going with Paradise Mantle and needing something else to flood the mana through you can use Hermetic Study so that you can do infinite pings. I have a deck built around that combo and other untap creatures. Hooray for machinegunning.

Makes for a decent infinite combo with grinning ignus, any 'tap for damage' enchantments, and a couple flamekin bannerets.
