This card is great, in theory. Yes it's got fantastic tribal synergy, but the problem lies in the fact that it doesn't say '...elves you control.' So as a result, once it gets mind controlled and you haven't drawn some sort of removal or disenchant, you're basically taking your own medicine with a dirty spoon. This card has lost me games ridiculously quickly when I wasn't able to draw an answer in time.

ummmm.. massive tribal power. Yowza. Combined with an effect that allows you to untap, and this thing can crank your life total.

Wellwisher is extremely powerful for a common

Indeed. But it is still a lovely card. As long as it is on your side.

Agh! A wellwisher! Kill it, kill it now, kill it with fire or sludge or tear it in half or force it to block or whatever, just kill it.

I saw my friends play elf vs rebels before and the game just wouldn't end until every card was drawn. I mean you can get 20 life every turn with this card and the rebel deck had story circle

Having multiple copies of this in a deck just floods you with life. Interesting, though not reliably useful, that they don't even have to be your elves.

This and timberwatch elf are the two most common 'tap for x' elf cards.
Now with the G 1/1 elf in Scars that untaps all creatures when it attacks, those cards get mental.

Run Well of Lost Dreams to draw your deck, it's not like you wouldn't have the mana.

Welwisher saved me against a Merfolk deck. After about 4 turns, it was winning 40 to 14. Within three turns I managed to turn it to 20 to 40 and ended the game at 75 life. Beastly little common. 5/5
