I can see this as powercreep, yeah.

I'm not convinced that it's necessarily a problem though.

Uh, dude. If the average power of old cards is significantly lower than the average power of new cards, that is power creep. As in, that is the definition of power creep.

Saying that the old cards were "too weak" isn't really true when you consider they were all "too weak".

I can't decide if i should replace my Deadly Reclus for these guys as my AA defence.

This card fraks flyers up.

Sigh... I guess I have to make an archer deck now.

In older sets there was usually massive variation in power level between cards. Some cards would be absurdly powerful, while others would be unplayable by today's standards. It's not necessarily "power creep" if WotC makes cards more consistent in power level.

@RuthieA the sad thing is, as overpowered as this card is for a one-drop, it probably won't even see constructed Tier 1 play. What does that say about the power level of Standard right now?

And I always thought Thornweald Archers pushed the envelope for low-curved green flying hosers...

It's a neat card but just thinking about where it sits on creature power-level makes me worry about what's happening to creature power-creep in Magic...

Already, a 1/2 for {G} is great. Tack on reach, and that's at least an uncommon, protecting you from Storm Crows for as long as you want. Then the pump...what the hell? A 4/2 whenever it blocks a flying? And at common? I wanna get my hands on a playset of this guy!

Green's answer to infect in draft.

Tailor-made to block a plague stinger (or any 1/1 infect) and survive, or trade with a non-regen Skithiryx.

THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING CARD EVER for one mana you get a 1 2 with reach it rocks against flying cous when it blocks som'thin with it it gets plus 3 plus 0 ( awsome in elf decks)
