While she fits in well with the Faerie style (appearing and disappearing instantaneously), Wydwen could be the weakest of the two-color Lorwyn legends. She's not bad by any means, but, compared to Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Gaddock Teeg, Brion Stoutarm and Wort, Boggart Auntie, it seems that Faeries lost out in that cycle. Faeries are good enough without her anyway.

I have a couple of this in my Grixis deck and they go like a thunder with legs; note that its not necessary to use it on a faeries deck.
A shame the cost to return it to hand is a little expensive... be both mana or the life you lose, but well, having one in hand and 4 lands untapped on an opponent turn make this card worthy.
Beside been legendary it has no drawbacks and the casting cost is VERY decent, a card to have in mind when making a {U}/{B} deck.

Ah Wydwen, my favorite Commander General ever. Not only can you run the two best colors for the format, but she's an offensive general that's nearly impossible to kill. The fact that bouncing her doesn't increase her actual casting cost makes her all that much better. Giver her a couple of swords to carry or just use her as a instant-speed trick. She's the perfect General in my opinion: fast, cheap, and can survive pretty much anything.

Interesting to note, this is the only black faerie with flash.

Heh, she got nerf'd on m2010. Still, she is good when coupled with other fairy cards, like fairae's tautings and such.

I can't spell.

Cool flavorful card. Nice art and has potential combat tricks. Hard to kill as long as you have the mana. Not a game winner but can really control the red zone.

Just looking at her makes me want to build a BlueBlack Faerie deck with her as the star.

Then I remember that I'd have to shell $48 for a playset of Bitterblossom. Hell, for that money I could build an entire deck that would probably play better. Sigh.

A legend amongst Faerie kind, Wydwen always has a biting insult to unleash upon whoever crosses her stormy path. She comes and goes as she pleases and isn't concerned by anyone. I only wish we knew more about her. As a card, she definitely is very good - fairly costed, surprising and great when you stack combat damage to return her to your hand. A pain for opponents to get rid of and fantastic in Limited. Unfortunately, there are so many other great Faeries in the 4 casting cost slot that she rarely manages to find space in decks. A pity because she's gorgeous and mysteriously cool!

Player 1: I attack with my hypnotic specter- you get 2 damage and discard a card at random!
Player 2: Nope! (casts wydwen, the biting gale)
Player 1: FFFUUU...!
