This is the only "mana dork" I run in my Omnath, Locus of Mana EDH deck, because she's the only one that can also be a relevant threat. Her ability to play more than one role in a single game is, if you ask me, her real strength. Versatility is always good in Magic.

Would have been amazing had it cost one green mana and been a 0/1. However, I still think its quite playable as is.

Yay! Finally another mana dork, and it ramps even more as you get out bigger creatures. Perfect for a +1/+1 counter deck. Not as versatile as BoP though.

Great mana-fixer. The bigger the things your deck has, the easier this makes it to get them out. You just have to have a little ramp up there.

It look like she will be to slow for standard, but i think she will see play in other slower formats, where you will also need the extra mana later.

This is of course Simic affiliated, but Grull will have plenty of creatures to pump it and will benefit greatly from the mana acceleration.

I am not thrilled by this elf, unfortunately, because it starts of making ZERO mana. Llanowar Elf, Birds, Noble Hierarch all allow you to cast a 3cc spell on turn 2, and Gyre Sage may not even allow you to cast a 4 cc on turn 3 due to its restriction. It takes more set up and the benefit is higher in the end, but for a 2 cc mana maker I'd expect better.

Her text should say, "Add G to your manapool, then another G for each +1/+1 counter on it."

This guy's going into my cascade deck.

Because of the way cascade works, the spells with the lowest mana costs are put onto the stack last, and therefore hit the battlefield first. Say I start a cascade with a Shardless Agent and it fetches this, it hits the field, and gets a +1/+1 counter right after it's cast...

Start with a Bloodbraid Elf, which fetches the agent, which fetches this, have two +1/+1 counters, allowing you to get to those Enlisted Wurms and Enigma Sphinxes that much faster... And don't even get me started on Maelstrom Wanderer... (I've decided the best way to play cascade is to have my only one and two drops being mana fetchers, like Rampant Growth, sources, like this card, and maybe correctors, like Prophetic Prism.)

Even if you aren't going crazy with cascade like I am, Shardless Agent is still this elf's best friend.

Actually, I'm a little doubtful of her power in elf tribal. Most elves don't seem to be that strong p/t wise. In block constructed, though? Go for it!

I don't play Birthing Pod so I could use another opinion. Is this worthy or replacing some copies of Wall of Roots? I'd say yes, but it doesn't produce mana the turn it comes down, so...
