I like the Flavor text pontificating how paranoid the Kithkin in Shadowmoor are, its too small for the "Protection from 3CMC or greater" to be a big deal.

Emrakul doesn't have Trample.

More annoying than you might think in EDH, a format where almost everything has a high casting cost. Sure, it probably won't kill you in that format, either, but you'll be surprised just how many of your cards can't do anything to it.

I love this little guy.
A lifelinking, semi-shrouded creature is nothing to laugh at in a good weenie deck. It does the typical weenie thing early game and it stops their fatties in their tracks late game. Not to mention he's a great way to sneak in some damage (and lifegain) if you pump him up.

Almost made my Sigil Captain deck worth playing where he often hit the board as a 3/3. Concerted effort also helps.

That seems like a really weird 'protection from' ability.

At least the almighty Storm Crow can still take care of this.

This lil guy is great, his protection from 3+ cmc might not seem like anything too spetcacular but if you think about it, that probably encompases over 70% of cards printed in Magic. The lifelink is just a nifty bonus. =)

Personally, I think this almost perfectly embodies white's philosophy of picking people apart with tiny, efficient creatures. This is tiny, and it gains you a little bit of life while dodging around anything with a CMC of 3 or greater, which like said above is a huge majority of cards in Magic. His only drawback is his low P/T, but that's easily fixed in any deck that works with these kinds of creatures, a few of which are Honor of the Pure, Light From Within, and Glorious Anthem. If you can get a group of these powered up enough, I'm pretty confident that the game will shortly be yours.

Wow, he can't be bounced by a Man-o'-War!

An interesting protection.
It has protection from abilities from sources who have a CMC of 3 or greater.
But not from abilities that cost more than 2, and the source has CMC of 1 or 2
