Yeah, but... is Falconer his last name? Or is he a Falconer with no discernable affinity for birds? Only Richard Garfield knows for sure.

Like GrimGorgonBC said, he isn't that bad. the CMC is slightly higher than you expect, but the mana ability is better than you might expect. Sure, that mana is colorless, but most of your big spells probably require about 4 or 5 colorless mana.

Plus, this is from the legends set, in which you have some of the most overcosted cards of all time. This being lightly higher CMC isn't all that bad when you look at it that way.

3/5 in legends, 2.8/5 otherwise.

In a 100% flavor set like Legends it's not surprising that a fatty has an ability which prevents it from attacking (check also Riven Turnbull)... However, five mana for a 4/4 was the standard, and so this card is a bad-but-not-too-much-at-the-time one, to me.
And men, this guy's name is amazing, something like "The Astian Sun"! The Astian period (now named Gelasian) is the last part of the Pleistocene; it spans between about 2.5 and about 1.8 million years ago. This guy trained falcons 2 million years ago... he deserves respect!

Is... kind of ok-ish for his time. 4/4 for 5 CMC that can produce 2 mana, not as terrible as some of the other legends.

I love looking back at the sets from Arabian Nights -to- Fallen Empires to look for new inspiration to give old cards a second day in the sun. I don't even own all of them yet, and as a collector I know I eventually *will*, but as a player I also want to know which cards I should be promoting to be given their fair due. :)

I did some math, and out of 55 Legends in Legends, a meager 12 of them have P/T *equal* to their casting cost (and none greater....I think?). The Elder Dragon Legends cannot boast as much among any of them! But, then, they have the truly good FLYING ability. Flying and TRAMPLE can each be considered worth a full {1} in, even many sets today, but particularly Legends. If you were to say that a card *has* to have 'either Flying/orTrample, or CMC = P', then you would consider less than 1/8-1/7 of the Legends Legends to be even playable, let alone good enough to build decks around.

Palino: either Unlimited or 4th Edition was... (see all)
