I like to think that she gives a creature Flying by throwing it.

Beautiful art, Elspeth never ceases to dispapoint.
Comes in T4 for 4 mana for 4 p/t. Comes in quite early in the game.
+1 is so easily abused. Like Sorin's, you will soon have many tokens at your bay.
+1 is good for getting rid of monsters that progressively get stronger (stromkrik, at say 3/3) or you just want to deal big. Usually good for finishing games off.
-8 Ult comes in in 4 turns but is so overpowered. If your opponent is stupid and leaves Elspeth alive, she will keep all your permanents alive and nothing will stop her. Not Breaking Point, not Bonfire of the Damned. Nothing.

The change to the Planeswalker Uniqueness rule will now let you use her second ability, cast another Elspeth, sac the first, and then use her second ability again. Ajani 3.0's second ability can be abused in a similar fashion. That's a pretty big push for getting more damage through in white.

-8: You get an emblem with "you win the game."

@A3Kitsune: You're right about Koth of the Hammer having an Emblem ability, but so does Venser, the Sojourner. Venser's Emblem ability states "Whenever you cast a spell, exile target permanent."

@Lutorius: Yes, Elspeth, Knight-Errant will be legal in Extended for quite some time. Although she's still legal in Standard until October since Scars hasn't been released yet, when that happens, Alara block rotates out so the only way you'd be able to use her in Standard is if you pull an Elspeth Tirel.

HAHA! the dual decks release drove the Shards version down to $25! Amazing considering that she was $70 not a month ago!

@theelk801: I know. People have been confused where I am thinking that Emblems are tokens (trying to abuse Doubling season, they are)

The art is nice, but seems to lack detail. Her armour, particularly her shoulder guards, look like they're made of styrofoam. And the card is ridiculously shiny. It's a little surreal.

That being said, I love the cloak and her stance. I'm glad I bought one of the duel decks. It's like I actually paid 25 dollars for an Elspeth, and they threw in a Tezzeret and a bunch of other cards.

@Richard_Hawk A poor man's Tirel? Are you out of your mind? Even this version is $17.50. A foil Shards one is 50. I wouldn't say that this version is inferior to Tirel, either.
