One of my first playsets of an actually useful card, and the cornerstone of my first deck with anything approximating a mana curve. Ahh, the memories :).

This deserves 5/5 easily. One of the most, if not the most, versatile and useful (nonland) cards of all time! It's value is obvious even to those who rarely use {G} (like me).


*Tap* = {G}

A classic, and a very good one at that.

I agree, classic card that will always be functional and welcome in many a green deck.

I like Birds of paradise better.

@Bauble: Sry but you misstated it a bit. Your mana pool is emptied after every phase. Also, Llanowar Elves does not become a land at all. A creature is a creature and only a creature unless the card says otherwise.

@Omnibeing: Your confusion is about the definition of "Land" and "Mana". Land is a card type. Mana is the 'currency' of MTG... Most spells are cast by paying mana equal to their casting cost. Land is the most common source of Mana. In addition, there are numerous cards other than lands which provide mana. Check out Dark Ritual or Black Lotus. Llanowar Elves is another good example.

Works wonders in my druid deck, i can have 3rd turn mana reflection so on fourth turn i have 14 mana to use (noone says anything about infinite mana combos)

Llanowar elves is one of the greens legends of all time, one of the most greeniest card ever 5/5

Turn one: Forest ->Llanowar Elves
Turn two: Forest ->Harrow/Cultivate ->Plains
Turn Tree: Plains ->BANESLAYER ANGEL!!!!

Baneslayer Angel at turn three, cute good, isn't it? Your opponent hasn't got a very long time to kill Baneslayer Angel...
