Andrew's Occasional Random Card of the Day #3 - 6/29/2011 - Sylvan Messenger

With such a big war going on in their setting, Invasion block's card names often surprise me. It's full of acolytes, disciples, apprentices, emissaries, and apparently messengers. Regardless, though, this card is funny in a different way; it's a tribal card in a block about multicolor. A quick search shows me only three Elves in Apocalypse, including this one, while there are sixteen in the Invasion block. One of those is Elvish Champion, though, so it's hard to argue there.

4:44 Stalker_Hag: Hi, are you there?
4:44 Stalker_Hag: Are you okay?
