Wizards, let's please give Moonfolk tribal some more support?

Perfect art.

WOTC: "We were thinking of printing this crazy card that eats moon people and drops land into play."

He is a good spirit with an exploitable ability (think Mana Breach and Overburden) but the moonfolks as a tribe are really weak.

I want to put him in a deck full of awesome landfall effects but he doesn't really fit all that well in anything I can think of.
There are only 16 moonfolk in all of Magic so the tribal synergy isn't to great with this. On the other hand they all tend to work well in landfall decks and by offering Moonbow Illusionist or Soratami Rainshaper you can get this guy out turn 4.

Yes Amulet of Vigor, but let's go a step further and throw in Cloudstone Curio to go infinite.

Pretty much necessary in any Moonfolk deck. Jesus christ those guys kill tempo...
And like many mechanics, Wizards didn't seem to realize how much of an effect this could have.

@Malnourished_Student: It's awesome. Definitely.

Also good for high-tide combos as you can use "return island to hand" costs or use him in casual for permanent ramp pretty easily.

Build up your mana, use him and any of the untappers that hit 3+ lands, untap the new islands, keep doing this as you draw into islands to make comboing out easier.

This card got ridiculous with Worldwake. This plus Amulet of Vigor means you can pay 1 drop 2 lands and get to use them instantly.

I always wondered why this wasn't called Patron of the Soratami. I mean the other ones aren't called Patron of Rats or Patron of Snakes.

Plays well with GreenBlue ramp, as one of the rare land-ramping Blue cards. And, of course, with the land-hungry Moonfolk. Kamigawa had an interesting color pie.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
