Sholux: Well, as a fae, it still triggers most of of the prowl abilities of your rogues. So it's about half as effective.
Thaxan_Number_14: That's not as obvious a question as you may think. Fae are more resonant with the players as the symbol of a deck type, and appear more in celtic myth. Flying humans actually appear more universally in mythology. It's not an issue of what's actually resonant. Remember, Wizards said that Jump had more flavour than Flight. And, of course, the unstated opinion that Jumping was more resonant than Leaping.
sir_dwar: That's why I love this. It always seemed strange to me that white should get the cheap, effective flyers when it seems more natural in blue. I guess blue was supposed to get the poor-man's creatures, but that's not really an excuse when it comes to cheap or mid-range flyers. Angels almost always outclassed blue in that regard.
Zulp: More push to give blue a defining creature t... (see all)

A 1/1 for one with flying? Nice.

I find the card to be mildly satisfactory, only because of the fact that it's a 1/1 flyer for CMC 1. Other than that, it doesn't have much to offer in Fae and Lantern Kami would better fit White Weenie decks looking for a bit of evasion.

That said, however, I can see myself playing this in a Blue or Dual Colour Blue Aggro based/Aggro Control deck. Any one drop would do good, especially with that sort of evasion.

A timeshifted card that's not actually timeshifted. Interesting.

Read what they said about Flying Men in 2002:

It's about time Wizards realized that Flying Men was one of the most appropriate 1cc blue creatures ever.

@TrueMumin, DoctorKenneth: Please tell me what color Jace, the Mind Sculptor is. Then tell me how many formats it's banned in. Then tell me what set it's in. And we aren't even COUNTING newer formats!

I don't mind Faeries being moved into Blue, but I wish they hadn't been moved out of Green. Birds of Paradise is among my favorite Green cards because it shows how Birds are Green and Flying Life exists. I understand that we cannot go Happy-Go-Lucky with a bunch of Ho-Ohs flying around (WURG?), but at the same time, I think that Flying is just So Absolutely Fundamentally Core to the game that Green needs more of it.

Pick one of the GreekMyth/Fantasia-like Flying Creature types that White gets, either Pegasus or Griffin or something, and make it Green's New Flying. Or how about Green can have Hippogriffs? I understand Green cannot have much Flying- it cannot have the best Flying- we ought not to just deligitimize Spiders by making Flying too much Better Than Reach, but we Still need to recognize that Flying is a thing that all Colors need.

How about Flying Humanoid Wizards? I know it sounds a bit Blue, but- it could be Flying + crappy P/T numbers, which sort of makes Flying Humans ma... (see all)

One-drop with evasion, could come in use.
