slow is playing two different spells just to get the effect of one. this thing is very much efficient and a great mana fixer.

One of the single most underrated cards in standard. Look at the cost breakdown:
G/1- A standard grizzly bear
1- Draw a land

This guy offers a solid turn three play that provides board advantage without losing any card advantage. In decks like White Weenie splashing Green, this is huge so you can keep playing threats without dumping your whole hand and losing steam. In any mildly aggro deck playing green I would swap at least one land for this guy any day.

I think they changed it SPECIFICALLY because of the useful creature types. I imagine, with the strong new elf lord, that they need to nerf elves in the upcoming standard.

I'm not sure how I feel about this guy for constructed, but in a m10 two-colour deck, he was indespensible - you get the right colours into your hand, a grizzly bear level creature, and remove the lands from your deck, upping your chances of drawing something to cast with your nice new mana. I'm a fan.

This guy has a whole new meaning with landfall.

Any green based deck that wants gas for the late game should slot in 4 of these guys. He may no longer be an elf, but that doesn't stop him from being entirely awesome.

half of these new kids dont understand how powerful this is, combined with landfall or not.

saving that land for next turn matters alot, especially if you're using pump spells or want to play more to swing for bigger numbers, as you spend three to get the land fixed into your hand, plus a 2/2 body.

Not as good as civic wayfinder. I can understand why the name needed to be changed but civic wayfinder. had useful creature types.

there are more things you have to look at then "this doesn't put borderland ranger's land into play!" true it doesnt, but with all the new cards out there is a thing called "LANDFALL" which is when a creature comes into play it has certain special abilities and tell me whats cheaper? (example Groundswell costs 1 G and gives 4/4 if you landfall it. using borderland ranger makes this a cheap and effective move. rampant growth does NOT. and besides all that, borderland ranger is legal, rampant growth is not in standard. which i feel you should be striving for if you wanna prove how good you are at this card game.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
