only if a creature in fallen empires had forestwalk. well at least you can still make your opponents lands next to useless or make your lands more useful if you have the wrong kind.

This card made everyone who is over 30 and/or familiar with Thelonious Monk deliriously happy.

4/5 for that alone.

People don't seem to be realizing that if you're running a Saproling deck, this is an excellent nonbasic hoser. It completely screws over multicoloured decks running dual lands by probably denying them color access, foils nasty things like Inkmoth Nexus, and given enough time eventually denies the opponent any non-forest lands. Run with Mwonvuli Acid-moss and others for green land denial!

Fallen Empires is rather mixed in the flavoring of it's art. WotC constructed up a solid setting, and made sure that each bit of flavor text built up the setting in the minds of the players, but they didn't bother to make sure the art did the same thing. Because of that, there is great inconsistancy in the flavoring of the art, with a lot of it looking like it belongs in another set. Like this guy. He was supposed to be an Elf. But no-one told the artist that.

And @ClockworkSwordfish, Thelonites are not a race. They are the followers of Thelon of Havenwood, and thus are a religous order.

I wonder if this creature was the inspiration from the Nantuko from Odyssey and Onslaught block.

Jazz mantis.

Long before there were Nantuko... there was Thelonite Monk.

I give it a 2.5... it's not really powerful, but it's a strange enough effect in green that I think it stands out.

@ClockworkSwordfish: Where is the pun here? I don't see it (but very much want to).

@ChippyForever: Ah, thanks! Not at all familiar with the musician, but at least now I can pretend to be more cultured. =)

This card exists solely as a vehicle for the pun. The entire race of Thelonites exsists solely so that this card could be hilarious.
