Eit'sa Nissa!

Also I want a zombie planeswalker now, Innistrad perhaps?

Everything I wanted to say about this card has already been said here, except this: Her illustration has no parts sticking out of the frame! All the other 'walkers have something sticking out, why not Nissa? Could it be it was meant to be her staff, but somehow the artist didn't realise it would partially cover her mana cost? And in that case, couldn't her picture just be moved a little to the left?

"this card sucks completely unless you build a deck centered around her." Boohoo. I wish people wouldn't expect planeswalkers to be playable in any deck that runs the same colors. Planeswalkers that do that lend to lazy deckbuilding: everyone starting their Color A/B deck list just goes 4x Planeswalker A and 4x Planeswalker B.

I'd much prefer to see more planeswalkers like this that are good cards and fit amazingly into an existing strategy, but you can't just pick them up and put them into any deck with the same colors.

Nissa's Chosen has a better rating than this Planeswalker... ^^

Like many who have already commented on this card, i was skeptical at first about it. A planeswalker for 4 with only 2 counters? Come on now this card has got to be the worst planeswalker printed. Then one of my friends urged me to put together my green/red aggro elf standard deck and i included 3 of these cards in the deck and found out first hand just how good this card's potential can be. May not seem good, but once i sat down and tournament test the deck, Nissa proved to be a huge piece in the deck. Against the burn match up without passing priorty she helped me gain enough life and tutor up a fairly decent blocker and attacker to hang in there and finish. A huge combo piece that my opponents hated to see is nissa tutoring up her body guard and then me putting a counter on it with Oran-reif, the vastwood. So Nissa is just a card you have to play first hand to appreciate, a sleeper card until tested.

Just noticed this, but she has the same pose as Kemba, Kha Regent.

Anyone who down talks this card doesnt realize its true potential. I run this in my black green elf deck and have won countless bouts with it.

Just make sure you check the board before you activate that ultimate, else you could be slaughtered by Blood Seeker

As much as I like the idea of a Tribal Planeswalker, she should have been a 3 drop or started with 3 Loyalty.

People hate on her loyalty, but I dislike her for other reasons. If your opponent lightning bolts her after you get an elf, you're still up a card.
No, I just think she should have had better abilities.
+1; untap up to two (three?) target elves?
-1; put a 1/1 elf druid token into play, with {T};{G}?
-2; Glimpse of Nature?
Stuff elf decks are better known for.
Wellwisher is nice, but underwhelming to just have a double wellwisher planeswalker.
Nissa's Chosen is, essentially, an Elvish Warrior token. Boring? A bit, yes.
On top of all that, her -7 is underwhelming. Sure, its powerful, but elf decks don't have trouble doing that on their own, far faster than she can after five or six turns of being defended. It is weak to Wrath of God variants, just like any other elf deck.
