hes even greater to have when you have a Khalni Heart Expedition out. he can just sit there till you need that last mana to pull off that landfall combo. I hope he gets a reprint

Agreed. He deserves a reprint.

Edit: Well finally.

@SuicidalTendancies: The new combat damage system means that you can't sac him while combat damage is on the stack to both kill a small attacker and net a land.
You can still block a creature and sacrifice the Elder in response to the combat damage step though, so it's not like there's a big difference in how powerful this used to be and is now ... I doubt many people made use of the "combat damage on the stack" trick anyway, unless they were running Lace with Moonglove or similar instant-deathtouch effects, or their opponents were stupid enough to attack with a 1-toughness creature into an untapped Elder...

He looks more like a turtle than a snake. Still an outstanding Green card wherever he's playable.

Was a great card, in over 2180 official tournament decks. Then they changed the ruling on combat damage.

Combat had been assigning damage the same way for years.There are a lot of cards like Mogg Fanatic that get ruined with the new simultaneous ruling.

I heard they had to change the ruling because people are too stupid to understand a combat damage 'stack' and response. Yup, dumb-down the game for the masses...

Good old Sakura, but why it is not reprinted ?

Ok guys, know why they can't reprint him? Well, his name is Sakura Tribe Elder, and in that fact he was only meant to be a Kamigawa themed card. However, they will reprint a card with a different generic name.
