well in any other deck besides an elf deck she kinda sucks, but o wait SHE'S SUPPOSED TO BE FOR THE ELF DECK that's what she was made for so shut the hell up she's good no matter what you say

Personally I think Elves are repetitive and annoying. Like Goblins, I wish they weren't put into almost every single Magic expansion as the token green/red creatures (that invariably seem to make tokens). That being said, she fits this model very well. Her first ability is very good, very-very good. It will arguably be the one that wins the most games. You get a free 2/3 creature every turn, until you get 4 in play, and then you have her second ability to gain decent amounts of life. Her last ability says to search your library for any number of elves, not every single elf in you deck. You just search for the one(s) you need to win. More than likely it'll be some ability elf if anything, unless you're sure that your horde of 1/1 guys isn't going to blasted off the field.

ok, people, this card is awesome/sucks

how is it both? well because her usefulness varries in insane amounts depending on the format you are playing

Standard = Sucks, just not enough elves with lorwyn gone to make her good now, but we will see what worldwake offers us

Extended = Pretty Good, all those lorwyn elves hit the board and hit it hard, watch out for a WoG and you win the game

Legacy = Not Bad, there are better, but this can be pretty good, I dont play legacy so I am not sure

Tribal = Awesome, this card in any tribal elf deck is instant win, G/R and you can sharkon vol's first, or call to action to haste your army, there are not many board wipes at instant speed, and pulling enough elf lords, 4 perfects, 4 champions, now they are 9/9 elves, hard to infest/fallout

EDH = if your EDH deck is elf, see the above part, not as many lords, but still out of range of one or 2 infests/fallouts

that is my 2 cents on this one, time will tell how good she is in the end, and dont forge... (see all)

I really hope green gets a new planeswalker that ISN'T tribally aligned soon. I'm not the biggest fan of Elves.

She just begs to be Lightning Bolted or just downright killed. Compaired to the other two planeswalkers, Nissa kinda sucks, but if you can pull her off in an Elf deck, go for it.

Starts at 2...ultimate at 7. Your opponent deserves all those elves in his face if he lets you pull off her ultimate.

Screw all you haters!
I love Nissa!
Yes, she screams "play elves!" but you know what? Who cares! Elves are a good tribe. A tad overpowered at times but it's never unfun to spit out dozens of elves. Unless you're on the other side...
I play a green black elf deck and she is the shining star. My Sanguine Bond most often is an instant win.
But yes, just because she is the least adaptable planeswalker doesn't mean she's a bad card. She does what she is intended to do incredibly well. The card should be rated a 4.25 at least.

EDIT: Well, I think we should see a new Nissa, what with the flavor text on Boundless Realms and all.
I think she should look like this:

Nissa of the Golgari/////////////////////////1ColorlessGreenBlack


+1: Put a 2/2 green & black Zombie Elf token called Joraga Remnant onto the battlefield under your control.
-3: Sacrifice a creature, if that creature was green gain 2 life, if that creature was black target p... (see all)

ok this card sucks completely unless you build a deck centered around her, but that aside they've made a elf planeswalker now I want a goblin plainswalker, come on think about it.

This chick is CRAZY. Continuously generates protection for herself, uber-Wellwisher ability, and that last one basically says, "Your opponent may play Day of Judgment during their next turn. If he or she doesn't, you win the game." Her only weakness is her high vulnerability to burn, and I suppose she gets to 7 counters pretty slowly, but then again she has two plus abilities. So I'm gonna have to say I like her, I like her a lot.
