OK, there are people that have laughed at this card for years and years because it's a "bird" with "wings" that doesn't have "flying"; here's the deal. It's an old set from a time when most creatures were often overbalanced for there cost. That being said, it's a 1/1 creature for 1 mana, put on top of that the fact that it's a green 1/1 creature for 1 mana with a pretty decent (and very rare for green) activated ability that stops creatures like River Boa, Silvos and other annoying regeneraters from doing what they do best. That being said, giving this creature flying as a 1/1 for 1 would make it too powerful to the standards of creature balance that existed at that time. Yes, they could have made it one more mana and given it flying, but I think this creature is more playable as a single mana 1/1 then a double mana 1/1 with flying. If this were printed today, due to the increase in average power rating of creatures, they probably would have given this 1 mana 1/1 flying with it's a... (see all)

This is a bird that likes to chill with Storm Crow and slay planeswalkers at their whim.

Whippoorwill, for when you want to make damn well sure creatures die when they are killed.

A bird that can deny a creature life, but even worse it can deny it paradise.

How horrific.

Probably one of the scariest tiny birds in the game. Mostly sideboard tech, but still not that bad.

having actually found and purchased this card, i've got to say its one very handy little bird. on the first turn, if you play with a green deck, you can get it out, and on the third or fourth turn, bring its ability into effect to knock out early game headaches like drudge skeletons or river boa, the first being one my friends like to pull on me.

It's strange that it doesn't have flying but what's even stranger is that its ability is like the everlasting torment of kumano, master yamabushi's furnace brood. chill out little birdy.
