Because I hate getting a 4/5 out on turn 2. (Leatherback Baloth)

Mana acceleration, a creature that's not behind the curve (the way MTG is heading this probably won't be the case in future), fills the turn 1 drop better than most cards and has two useful tribes. I never regret a turn 1 Llanowar Elves, even when I'm not playing elves. One of magic's original creatures has been balanced since day 1 and continues through today, (how did Utopia tree beat this card in a vote? Seriously?).

For obvious reasons, this isn't a Legendary creature, but really, we all know it is. I pretty much mulligan if I don't have a Forest and a Llanowar Elves. I love third turn Fyndhorn Elder.

this is my favorite art of all of the sets. Also this is possibly my favorite green card ever. It basically defines mana acceleration. 5/5

basic and simple. good for every elf deck and most green decks. i would rather have aBirds of Paradise in a multi color deck but he ramps well with other elves.

No, you do not use any lands when you tap this card for mana. Think of it this way: you have a pool of mana that is emptied every turn. You tap lands to add mana to that pool. Tapping this card adds mana to the pool, just as it does when you tap a land, so this card, in itself, becomes a "land" when you tap it for mana. Hope that helps. (:


Good old Llanowar Elves. Always reliable. 4.5/5

Turn 1 Forest, tap, Llanowar Elves.

IMO, most overused 1st turn ever. And for good reason, too. Llanowar elves is epic.

Staple of green decks. Efficient mana acceleration.

For some reason they put a sword on this one...Who attacks with these?

In a game the other day my opponent got mana-screwed and had no defenses, so for several turns I pinged away at him with a Puppeteer, another card that should never be used for attacking. Both of us were ashamed - me because that was the best offense I could muster, and him because it actually brought him down to 12 from 20.

Should have been a top target for new art
