Elf, Merfolk; Goblin, Merfolk; and Elf, Zombie. These Apocalypse "Bears" have crazy parents.

I feel like wizards should add an errata to make this a zombie elf druid. Elves that tap for mana seem to always be druids.

also: zombie soldier (warrior) and goblin soldier. but i guess thats got nothing to do with race.

Before "Invasion" block, people would have never imagined that one day zombie decks could be multi-colored.. Now, green is the most popular second color for zombie decks because of Putrid Leech (which is probably the better two-drop) + Strength Of Night + certain control cards! :)

Yeah, this should definitely have the druid types, there are even bears that produce mana and they have the creature type: "Bear Druid".. We should probably compare this card with Werebear for another reason, the bear is first a 1/1 and then later a 4/4 creature while this card is a 2/2 creature.. And yeah, both cards show the moon and can accelerate into a third-turn Keening Banshee, which shows the moon, too! :)

I'd probably prefer Elves of Deep Shadow. Certainly this card is stronger, but Elves of Deep Shadow you can play if you don't have any black mana yet and need some.

Part of an interesting cycle of 2-mana enemy color gold common creatures in Apocalypse:

Gaea's Skyfolk - GreenBlue (Elf Merfolk)
Goblin Legionnaire - RedWhite (Goblin Soldier)
Llanowar Dead - BlackGreen (Zombie Elf)
Putrid Warrior - BlackWhite (Zombie Soldier - later Warrior was added)
Razorfin Hunter - BlueRed (Merfolk Goblin)

Invasion, the first expansion in the block, had a cycle of 2-mana friendly color gold common creatures, all of which had protection from their shared enemy color:

Galina's Knight - WhiteBlue (Merfolk Knight)
Llanowar Knight - GreenWhite (Elf Knight)
Shivan Zombie - BlackRed (Barbarian Zombie)
Vodalian Zombie - BlueBlack (Merfolk Zombie)
Yavimaya Barbarian - RedGreen (Elf Barbarian)

As for this card itself, it was a fair accelerator in zombie decks, especially since in the past, m... (see all)

A stronger Elves of Deep Shadow? Doesn't work as well for mana-fixing, but at least it lets you beat a little harder.

Dude, a 2/2 zombie that taps for mana? This card is way underrated.

For some reason the idea of a zombie Llanowar elves seems somewhat comical to me.
