I love how the art is so ludicrous that the flavor text has to handwave it.

The art is way too interesting for the effect.

This guy reminds me of the winged warriors in Flash Gordon. Other than that, it's pretty bad.

The winged helms of the Guard are put on for pageants - but taken off for war...

Soooooo, I guess he's participating in a pageant in the artwork? Mechanically the ability is okay, can screw up combat but lacks the element of surprise in that your opponent can see it coming (they can block a bit better knowing something may get +2/+2, whereas with say, Mutagenic Growth your opponent can be surprised.)

Also your opponent can potentially net a 2 for 1 by destroying the creature targetted by Kjeldoran Elite Guard's ability with a Doom Blade, for example.

Flavorwise, I love how this is an improved, bigger Kjeldoran Guard, much like Kjeldoran Skycaptain is a bigger Kjeldoran Skyknight.

Practically, it is risky to use. Contrary to its name and flavor, it's usually not best in situations where it "guards" another creature in combat, as a well timed Giant Growth or Unsummon could put you in severe card disadvantage.

@Lord_Ascapelion - this comment made my day :). The art direction of Ice Age was completely random and so incredibly unfocused. Good old Magic of yesteryear...
