I don't know whether to rate this .5/5 or 5/5, it's so hilariously bad. Nice job, Legends designers.

Alright, who rated this more than 0.5?

I wonder how much one of these is worth now? Does its legendary status as a pile of awful, combined with the fact that quite a few copies were likely destroyed, make it more of a collector's item?

An untapped forest was sacrificed to print this card. Much like it's in-game stats, keeping that forest would have been better.

We really need to petition for a 0 star option. Some cards don't deserve the 0.5 treatment, that's reserved for Aven Trooper, Viashino Skeleton, etc.

Turn 1: forest, Lotus Petal, summon 2 Llanowar elves
Turn 2: forest, Crucible of Worlds, Fastbond, Zuran Orb

That WILL get you infinite life and mana on turn 2, but I really don't think you can infinitely sac forests to wood elemental this way.

You can deal infinite damage with a Gruul Guildmage, or pump a Goblin Razerunners infinitely though.

Among other things.

This has got to be the most ***-poor green creature in history. Just looking at it actually makes me angry.


It's just...indescribable. I didn't vote 0.5 for it immediately, if only because I was trying to figure out how to vote 0/5. I would love so much to build a deck with four of these, four Chimney Imp...it would be like watching the movie Plan 9 from Outer Space: so bad it's just beautiful.

I completely agree. This card is so 0,5 / 5.
What did they think when they created that card?
Even as a one-drop, this card would still be horrible.
Sacrificing untapped Forests is even worse than just paying green mana.
And even then, an Ivy Elemental with a casting cost of 3GreenVariable Colorless would be quite useless...

Suppose you play one Forest per turn and play this card on turn six. You just spent all your mana, set your development back two turns (assuming you even draw into more lands), and are now the proud owner of...

...a vanilla 2/2. Cough. Boy am I glad I didn't spend that turn playing Force of Nature or Ancient Silverback or Nacatl War-Pride or Autumn Willow or Verdeloth the Ancient or Silvos, Rogue Elemental or Quagnoth or Arctic Nishoba or Craw Wurm or Rhox.
