Stampeding Wildebeests and Wren's Run Packmaster are 2 great 5/5 for {4} ways to use this critter.

Thins your deck, draws a card, blocks and it's an elf. Elves can usually spare 2 mana at some point to cast this without sacrificing an important play. When you are trading card for card or recovering from a wipe, this card will go a long way.

Pretty good. I like carddraw in green.

Agree that the flavour text is fine, given the artwork and the card name.

Agree that these a very solid in elf decks. They also work well with stampeding wildebeasts.

Wizards didn't want people to have essentially 8 of these cards in one deck.

If Wizards were allowed to invent places like 'Kalonia' and the like for the new set, then referring to Cylian elves in a card that's simply called 'Elvish Visionary' not 'Cylian Elf' is alright. It's flavour, and not that important in a Core Set.

yah, what's with this whining??? Random flavor references have been a part of magic from the beginning. It's not as big a deal when it's not a totally oblique reference in the name of the card. How many people who've played Shards would even know what Cylia means except a place where Nayan elves live? It's text is perfectly comprehensible despite this, and hints tantalizingly.

Mechanistically, standard cantrip cost is 2, so this is purty nice. I love the way it fits into a limited curve in M10.

I kind of prefer Multani's Acolyte myself, because its first course of action is usually to chump block.
But this is better on turn 2.
