This was the planeswalker I was least excited about for Scars. She just didn't look that fun or fantastic to me.

Then she ended up in my pre-release Sealed pool. It was very awkward, like when in high school you would get paired up for a group project with someone you talk a lot of crap about behind their back. But turns out this card is phenomenal, and then I got a 2nd one in one of my prize packs at the end. Like, you know, when you're done with the group project and find out that person is actually pretty cool, and you share a lot of common interests.

Pretty sure her -2 slows games down faster than any activated ability in the history of Magic.

Part of me really likes the design of this card and the rest of me is too consumed with hate at even the idea of having to play against her to give a damn about design.

While I lean towards saying Elspeth, Knight-Errant is better, she's still plenty amazing. Even outside of a token deck, this is an absolute powerhouse. I generally at least try to avoid labeling cards as broken, but a reusable nuke that hits enchantments, artifacts, non-token creatures, and all other plainswalkers more than pushes the limit for me.

Before Elspeth came onto the battlefield, I had 3 life, my opponent had 20. At the end of the game, I had 37 life and my opponent was dead. And Elepeth was still alive, with 5 loyalty left.

If that isn't power I don't know what is.

This was in my first booster ever when I first started playing Magic (Yeah, im a bi new, but I know my stuff now) and back then I had NO idea what it all meant, and now EVERY time I have her enter the battlefield I smile and remember the times I had with this card in the past. Good times...good times... :D

@Stall3, please tell me your a troll. I cannot be serious. Read what the card says!

-5: Destroy all other permanents except for lands and tokens.

IT SAYS OTHER AND EXCEPT! The Wizards ruling is right. Please actually read the card (if you can) before you speak.

I pulled one, and traded it for a few more expensive cards to add to my RDW (Kuldotha), although I did go 3 - 0 in a draft thanks to this card, only owning 1 does me no good and its was too expensive for me to buy another one. =/ Overall its a great card that can win games, but you need to build a deck around it.

5/5 - Its just a good card; although it costs a good chunk of cash, its still great if you can protect it.

Beautiful. 5/5.
Comes in T5 but ultimate takes 1 turn to achieve. Really good if you're about to lose or you're facing big creature decks.
Very good in life gain, +2 can easily ramp up 4-5 to 8-10 life every use. -2 is easily abused and achieved rather quickly which can then be followde up by a +2 which will gain even more life.
Ult will see play a lot and is very good as well. Very good when you have a lot of soldier tokens and you want to go in for the kill but he/she has a lot of creatures blocking you

The combination of very powerful ultimate and being able to activate that ultimate after just one other ability AND survive is quite potent.

Hopefully they'll reprint this in a $20 duel deck pack someday so I can get one for under $40.

And here I thought nuclear weaponry was banned in the United States.
