Dude, these guys are amazing! I can't understand the people that are unimpressed.... not only can you have a 5/5 on turn 2, but they are also elf tribal AND can mana fix any color.

pffft... nasty.

5/5

People keep calling it "unreliable".
What's so unreliable about it?
At worst, it's a 2/2 body. Nothing to scoff at in general.
At it's intended peaks, it's a 5/5, or a double mana producer.
For three mana, it's hard to say that its "unreliability" outweighs its advantages.
Although, I will admit such a gamble seems more black-oriented.

Yeah I was kind of hoping this would be like an elf vampire kind of thing because they look to much more menacing that other elves.

This in an Elf deck? Someone's doing it wrong.

I run the Channeler's in my Eldrazi deck. They're either spare mana, or another set of strong hands to start swinging (alongside Leatherback Baloth and Greenweaver Druid, who both cost CMC 3, if you notice).

One of my favorite combos is having her and Lurking Predators out at the same time with an Eldrazi sitting on the top of my library. "You can cast that spell, but if you do, I get this creature." Also fun when adding Wild Pair. "You can cast that spell, but if you do, I get this creature. If you don't, I will cast this creature next turn, and get another."

Then again, I play black mainly, so I may be biased.

play it with a Bloodline Shaman, and if you decide that you want the revealed creature now rather than later, you can go ahead and put it in your hand

Very cool, but ultimately impractical.

A deck that plays this will be effectively limiting itself from playing artifacts, enchantments, instants, sorceries, and planeswalker.
And without a lot of library manipulation, you will inevitably get the effect you don't want at the time.

I do really like the flavor for this, what with the dual class types each representing one of its abilities.
