Llanowar Elves are more useful than Birds of Paradise in a lot of cases, especially in elf/druid decks.
I have the old 5th edition Lannies, and I use them in every green deck I have. Now, if only they had haste.....

If your using a a deck of any kind that has green in it there is no reason at least one of these shouldn't be in there.

This is of course a very nostagic one-drop and useful mana-accel, but i'm amazed by the fact that this card is in M10 nontheless:

Aside from this card, Relentless Rats is the only creature in M10 which also represents more than one creature, a horde as one unit. It makes a whole lot more sense here.

They were not afraid to exclude some card that very believed to get reprinted in the Corse Sets forever, such as Grizzly Bears.
These were replaced by a single Runeclaw Bear.
Admittedly the reason for this here was also that Grizzly Bears were not considered magical enough.

But having multiple creatures representing a single card with low power/toughness appears to be outdated nontheless - Scathe Zombies didn't get reprinted either and were replaced for Warpath Ghoul. This guy on the other hand is superior to them, so this still isn't any certain proof of this inconsistency.

But Llan... (see all)

Very handy card for Green mana fast and cheap too.

I'm new to magic so please forgive my ignorance in advance. I was wondering where the green land card comes from when you use the ability of Llanowar Elves. Do you get the mana from your library and if you do I would imagine you woulld have to shuffle the deck, right? Or do you have a side deck of extra mana that you pull from just for purposes of using this card? The final option that makes sense to me is the card simply allows you to play an additional green land if you have a land to play that is already in your hand. Any clarification on this subject is gratefully appreciated.

I may have seen this card summoned more than any other creature in the history of Magic. I've been playing since the days of revised, and this guy always manages to make an appearance. Solid mana producer, somewhat overshadowed by other cards now.

I like the original Art work the best of all of them. (The one from Alpha, Beta, Unlimited, Revised, and 4th edition).

For some reason they put a sword on this one...Who attacks with these?

Why would anyone use this? It's fairly early in the game, you should have already gone on the offensive with something like Scryb Sprites. I don't think I've ever used this- there's a reason it's common.
