A utillity creature which is must remove or die. Cool.

If you can get one or two of these out and keep them alive, you win the game. Ramp decks have a new best friend.

Black Lotus on a creature. What is not to love? Creature restriction means almost nothing since in ramp decks creatures are almost always more mana costly than other permanents/spells. Throw an Instill Energy on her, and you get six mana the turn she enters play

Amazing card. Won multiple games at the prerelease on the back of turn 3 this, turn four Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

Essentially a free repeatable summoner on a stick in a color that summons more than any other in the game?? Sick NASTY. Watch how "inflation" works over time as the price tag skyrockets!!

This is the one card in the set that made my jaw drop.

You can now hard cast Elesh Norn on turn 3 in standard. Just once I want to live that dream.

It might have low toughness and die to anything that hits it.. but black lotus on a stick will make big spells hit fast.

..I just wish it was an elf.

Next turn, drop an Elgaud Shieldmate to protect it.

Somberwald Sage is an immaculately well designed card. if it were a 0/3 or a 2/2, I think it'd be a little too good.

I know that doesn't really make THAT much of a difference, but with Gut Shot and Galvanic Blast in standard currently, the Sage doesn't last on the field for too long.

But if she does, oh boy... your opponent will have a world of hurt. A turn 3 Primeval? a 5/5 Primordial Hydra on turn 3? Elesh Norn? Jeez, the list goes on.

Thus is why it's so well designed. 4.5/5 for the fact that nearly no card is perfect.
