Under most circumstances, this is functionally the same as a Llanowar. There are some unusual situations where Llanowar is better, and some where this is better. But I think that the situations where this is better are both more significant and easier to build for, which makes this even better than Llanowar (which was already pretty good).

@Feralsymphony

Guess what? They were. We can get multiple colors out of this guy with cards like Temple Garden and the other shock lands, along with many other lands using the forest card type.

Personally, I think that qualifies this as better than Llanowar Elves, aside from the fact that it doesn't get around land-destruction. But given what's in Standard right now, that won't be a problem.

Here's a list of the best mana producing land enchantments I could find for all you mana rampers out there.

Utopia Sprawl
Wild Growth
Overgrowth
Fertile Ground
Elvish Guidance (Was debating whether or not I should mention this, but you know... Arbor Elf.

The fact that his ability is not a mana ability and can therefore be responded to will probably make you randomly lose at least one game. For instance, try to untap a Dryad Arbor and they can just Lightning Bolt the Dryad Arbor in response, leaving you with 0 mana. This makes it a lot worse than good old Llanowar Elves, but manadorks are still manadorks and therefore very good to cast 3 mana things on turn 2.

It's not Llanowar Elves, but it can be much. much more versatile, especially if the shocklands get reprinted in RTR. That forest you're untapping might do more than just make Green.

Go ahead and judge me, but I personally think that this is a solid reason to buy the green intro pack Wild Rush.

Slapping an Abundant Growth on a forest can get you any color mana with this fella...
