Historically, this is the card that started Magic's long association of dryads with landwalk. It makes sense: wood spirits flitting between the trees unseen, raising their arms branch-like if anyone glances their way, invisibly approaching the enemy. Too bad that in this day and age, even a 1/1 unblockable won't get you to your victory, most of the time. Thus, for Shanodin Dryads, we're left with the artwork and not much else outside of a forest/nature theme deck.

Alternatives, for those inclined:
Somberwald Dryad, the 2/2 upgrade of this very card.
Wormwood Dryad, for those who dabble in the darker arts and want to maximize their dryad-based damage.
Yavimaya Dryad, the most fun dryad of all, in my humble opinion, which serves to either lead you to new leafy domains, or sneak into the enemy's.

I've always admired this artwork.

There are much better ways to spend my one Green. Try Llanowar Elves... or even Mtenda Lion.
