Youch. Pump out elf after elf after elf, and by the time you're done you still potentially have three mana to toss around. The only thing really slow you down is the need for multiples of three.
Aside from usefulness, I can't get over how downright pleased she looks to have found a tiny village of tiny elf ghosts.

Limited, elf-specific Earthcraft.

It's gotta be broken. Tribes are getting all the love right now.

Pretty sure this card was a mistake. It's ability should have been a Tap or had one of those 'Only X per turn' clauses they like to put on otherwise broken Green cards.

I'm not saying it's bad, I'm saying it's too good. I've been on the receiving end of one too many Nettle Sentinel chains to think otherwise.

Combines well with Lys Alana Huntmaster and cantrip elves such as Elvish Visionary and Masked Admirers. Often you will be able to to continually tap the elf you cast and the token generated to cast the new elf you drew. Be cautious of board sweepers, it's easy to empty your hand with this card and be hit by a Day of Judgement the next turn.

This guy can also trigger Quest for Renewal very easily, which could help with the drawback from tapping all your creatures and leaving yourself open to attack - especially after you just cast a massive Joraga Warcaller - all those massive tapped elves don't look so good when lethal creature damage is coming through. Possibly useful with Chord of Calling.

Haha, never considered that you could tap tribal Equipments, Enchantments, and the like. So silly.

I believe Pro-tour Berlin shows why this card deserves it's rating

You really can make a long combo having this and 3 nettle sentinels on the field

This card has become a little less awesome since the beginning of the Zendikar block. I mean, you only really need so much mana, and you can easily get it with Joraga Treespeaker, Elvish Archdruid, etc. Tapping your elves is just a little to much to pay for just 1 mana each, in multiples of 3.
Don't get me wrong, it's still great, just a little less powerful than it used to be.

Andrew's Occasional Random Card of the Day #15 - 7/12/2011 - Heritage Druid

I'm not sure why all those elf spirits she's watching are so tiny.

Anyway, I imagine elf grouping up into threes and holding hands for their little mana rituals.

Okay, okay. I've never been a fan of 'Elf decks', and I don't tend to play formats where Elfball prevailed, so I've never seen this Druid in action. Being aware of cards like Glimpse of Nature, though, I can definitely imagine her being pretty silly. I would be interested to hear an experienced 'Elf deck' player's opinion on her versus Birchlore Rangers, though. Obviously the rangers make less mana, but is the color and/or number of Elves required to activate an issue?

Not having much to say on her power level, or even the design of such a straightforward card, I can comment a bit on the flavor connection. The flavor text hints that the tiny spirit people are the 'great spirits of age and th... (see all)
