You could tap for 1 mana or not lose the game....

By the time you can play him, you don't need his mana ability...

This was in-cycle during the time I played at local tournaments as a kid; I remember having one in my deck just because I liked the artwork.

Normally he'd just be an overcosted flyer, but during a close game once, I managed to get this thing out while my opponent had an Iridescent Angel on the field. Thinking he had protection from everything, he attacked, then just looked at the board, dumbfounded as I blocked with Lotus Guardian before smacking himself on the forehead. Went on to win the game because of that.

Probably my best Magic memory.

Should have +2/+2 and tap for 3 mana of any color. That'd be worth 7 mana.

Pros: Colorless, flies
Cons: Embarrassment to the lotus heritage, Low P/T for mana, Ability doesn't match the rest of the card, Took up a rare slot

Even green doesn't want to pay 7 for a 4/4 flier (speaking of green look at that activated ability).

Well, if you want something to dump into your graveyard as part of an infinite 5-colored mana combo with Necrotic Ooze, and for some reason you want it to be a 7 CMC 4/4 flier instead of an accelerator that actually accelerates, you have found a candidate for the job.

And people give my man Flowstone Thopter a hard time. THIS WAS IT'S COMPETITION!

I run four of these to accelerate my Storm Crow deck.

Put it in your dragonstorm deck so that you don't win right away if you don't feel like ending the game.

Worst lotus ever? Seriously, the entire rest of the lotus clan is amazing.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
