I remember when I first saw this card I thought it was the stupidest thing ever

it's actually not so bad looking at it now :P

The strength is flexibility. You can't expect both of the cards it can be to be up to par, or why play anything else?

I don't think herbalsupplement has ever heard of elfball.

Strictly better than Defiant Elf

this can be surprisingly useful in Tribal elves when most of you pumped elves don't have trample.

This card is fraggin awesome. Don't care about what a bunch of nubs rate it. It's a 1/1 trample, and that's an easy fix in green. Most trample comes on auras or somewhat spendy creatures. This guy DARES your opponent to block him and then you merely add one of the many many green instants that boosts size. If I didn't have a hatred for elves this guy would be a must.

Once you get a couple lords out this gets better, as you'll only have so many tramplers (depending on the deck) so a +4/+4 trample elf is a delicacy. This also ensures if the game carries on too long that it's not a "dead" card. You can make him a 6/6, not too shabby when you would've had a 1/1 on the same card..

If this card were blue, it'd be terrible. Red? Alright, but compared directly with suicide elementals (which are generally better.) White, terrible, the buffs aren't there. Black? Would also be excellent. (Buffs, lack of implicit trample, would've been a zombie.)

nevertheless this is still a crappy card, a 1/1 with trample for one mana, or a 6/6 with trample for 9 mana?? r u guys insane? silvos the rogue elemental or whatever is an 8/5 with trample and regenerate for 6 mana

Expensive kicker is kind of dumb. I could justify a kicker cost of 5 to pay for the counters, but 8 is just plain bad. Even with the kind of acceleration an elf deck provides.

Not bad, but, well...
