At worst, you get some spell that you cant cast. At best you win the game. I'll take my chances.

I'm looking forward to "From the Vault: Elves".
This would be in there, no doubt.

The reason there's so much "love," as the comment put it, for this card is that we've seen what Standard became without her: a control winter darker than Dralnu, Psychatog, or even Buehler Blue. Wizards let her rotate out and gave the aggressive side of the color pie basically NOTHING.

I think we all need to address a big problem with this card. I'm talking, of course, about the lack of braids in the art.

It may be that the nasty strands of hair are really tiny braids, or the braids are hard to see because they are close to her head and have a bunch of pulled out strands, or it may be some kind of metaphor for braiding actual blood that makes no sense but SERIOUSLY WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT HAIR I AM GLAD I CAN'T SMELL IT.

Thank you, Wizards, for correcting this serious problem with the Planechase edition Bloodbraid Elf. You've restored my faith in you!

I'd call it the best Elf ever if Allosaurus Rider didn't exist. Regardless, you must play these in any R/G beatdown deck. They're that damn good.

An opponent's Bloodbraid Elf can mess up everything in your game out of nowhere.

This in my modern deck, cascade into a Dark Confidant, Tarmogoyf, or even a Liliana of the Veil.

We are looking at a card that serves many perposes, one of which is killing Faeries by cascading into Volcanic Fallout, resolving, and then punching your opponent in the face.

I run this in my red/green speed aggro deck (duh) and I usually cascade into a Colossal Might or a lightning bolt, which just makes my opponents cry. All the cards except this one are 3 or less to cast, and all the creatures have haste, so I'm gonna get something extra to smash with. Then if I'm lucky enough to play another one next turn, it's usually GG. This usually winds up being my finisher along with the other creatures. The haste just makes it all the better, since you can attack if you cascade into a buff spell playing it on her if you don't have any other creatures.

My only complaint is the P/T is a bit low, but for the abilities vs the CMC it's above the curve.

4.5/5 great card

The best Fedex elf ever. "Hey, I ordered a Blightning! Oh well, guess I'll have to settle for a Lightning Bolt."
