Excellent card for any multicolor deck that includes green. I think anyone with green in their deck should definitely consider adding two or four. A nice addition is also the beautiful artwork. I'd give it a full 5/5 because there is no real drawback to this card and the fact that it is useful at any moment of the game.

worst case scenario your opponent has to waste a burn spell on your birds, even then you'll still be at normal mana levels. Seems like a perfect card to me.

A stapel card in all multicolors. Just hard to keep alive.

I love how the flying is occasionally relevant, allowing you to swing with a loxodon warhammer or chump-block a big game-winner. But mostly it's just hilarious to envision this devoted little guy carrying an elephantine hammer in his beak.

Beauty and perfection, so elegantly combined.

If only there were some sort of way to celebrate the Birds, and how their popularity has consistently been "the word" in Magic. Some sort of song, maybe.

Card of the Day - Friday, March 29, 2002
The Birds have been one of the staples of the game since it began, but they were created as an afterthought. Their art was originally supposed to be for Tropical Island, but the bird was too prominent. So Richard Garfield created a card just for the art, and it ended up being the most versatile mana-producing creature ever.

--Also the creature type was 'Mana Birds', modern versions are just 'Bird'

An iconic card for green. Perfect melding of flavor and mechanics. May we all come back as birds of paradise some day.
