I love this card. Everytime I make a deck with green in it, I get to weigh the pros and cons of this versus llanowar elves and birds of paradise. How many colors? Does the deck want fewer than 12 forests? Does the deck want utopia sprawl? Does the deck need creature-created mana?
I love cards like this because they give me additional tools to optimize my mana base.

1 arbor elf
1 forest
2 Instill energy

Turn 2

Draw another Instill energy

Tap forest, enchant it with utopia sprawl/wild growth
Untap forest with Arbor Elf
Tap forest and apply instill energy on arbor elf.
untap/tap Arbor elf as needed Applying the rest of the instill energy's and utopia sprawl's/wild growth's to the forest and arbor elf.

Cast Lightning Greaves and attach to Arbor Elf
Turn 3

Draw Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

Tap forest 5 times total (20 mana)

@TheMurderousKitten: Correction: Turn 2 Progenitus.

T1: Forest, Arbor Elf
T2: Forest, Utopia Sprawl (on the untapped Forest), tap for BlueGreen, untap it, tap for BlueGreen again, Freed from the Real, untap Arbor Elf, infinite green mana, Green Sun's Zenith into Progenitus (or some way to actually win outright)

I've had a deck based around a similar combo for, like, forever. I ran Wild Growth and Krosan Restorer until Arbor Elf was released. Now I've added the elf and replaced Wild Growth with Utopia Sprawl, and it works faster and just as consistently.

It helps that I'm also running Tropical Islands and a... (see all)

He also works well with Manabarbs!

Oh wait... what's the opposite of "work well with"?
