It's no Ghor-Clan Rampager, but it sticks around.

Flash + Bestow is pretty sweet.

This kind of reminds me of Blade Splicer, in that apparently the way to make cool mechanics constructed playable is to have them at rare.

I hope I get one at pre-release just so I can flash it in and say "HERE COMES THE BOON!"

4/2 flash for 3 is pretty sweet already, the added versatility that bestow gives this puts it over the top. Almost certainly the best bestow card in the set (at least for constructed). It's not flashy (not counting the sparkles), but it certainly does work.

This card is a strong boon that I intend to bestow upon an unblocked Fabled Hero.

Boon Satyr is arguably the strongest card in Theros showcasing the Bestow mechanic, the only other challenger being Nighthowler. The flexibility granted by the low casting cost, the manageable Bestow cost, and the surprise factor of Flash gives this card enormous potential, depending on the metagame. And remember that, in general, four power for three mana is a fairly credible threat.

@Xpodmaniac: According to Rule 303.4d, "an Aura that's also creature can't enchant anything." When you Bestow a creature, it loses its creature card type until it's not enchanting anything. (Otherwise, Bestow wouldn't work at all.) Also, it loses its Satyr creature type as long as it's an Aura, because only creatures and tribals can have creature types (Rule 205.1a).

The reminder text has two clues to help you answer your question: 1) the text lacks "in additi... (see all)

It is so strange to me to see such high power, low toughness creatures in green. There certainly are a fair number of them, but most of them due to their mana costs appear as fatties with their butts shrunken rather than cheap things with razor teeth.

Honestly, taking another look at it, there's always been Deadly Insect, Yavimaya Ants, etc. Just funny is all, given how they emphasized shifting high power low toughness away from black, because it was making it too similar to red.

To me it really feels like a lovechild of the two Wolfir cards from Avacyn Restored: Wolfir Avenger and Wolfir Silverheart in that it's a 1GreenGreen flash creature that can alternatively give what may as well be seen as +4/+4 for 3GreenGreen across "two creatures" since when the creature this enchants dies, it becomes a 4 power creature (or this could be seen as "similar to the Avenger's regenerate ability")-- unfortunately it can't provide as good of a surprise defense but considering it's like both cards into one, I would say it's still very powerful

Even the bestow cost is cheaper than Merfolk of the Depths...

probably the only bestow card going to see constructed play

So far the best bestow card. It's a nice combat trick that becomes a decent body if things go awry.

@Dalucaray: If they just fed a dude to your one drop deathtouch I think you still came out of that ahead.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
