I vote that they keep this card forever, just for flavor and antiquity reasons.

He's the standard flying beatstick.

Yes, please put him back into 2012, Wizards. :)

Great in limited, not so great anywhere else.

Back in the day this was a great card... right now, he is way under the curve. Very solid in limited, but consider that Serra Sphinx and Djinn of the Wishes cost the same and have extras. Ethersworn Adjudicator is an artifact and Cloudhoof Kirin is a legend, but they both are also better.

I'm so glad they're not using the 7th ed flavor text/art on this guy anymore. I cringed everytime I saw it in my cards. I refused to play him during that period of my life. Now he's back, but Djinn of Wishes pretty much makes him obsolete. Sorry dude, you were cool once and we had a lot of fun, but I've got to move on. We're different people now...

Sorry, guys, but he died in M11. </3

In m12, his role is filled by Phantasmal Dragon. I prefer the dragon because he kills in 4 turns and comes out a turn sooner. Air elemental is a classic though.

After all these years, still a solid card in limited. One of the first cards I ever got was a revised Air Elemental back in 1994.

An ok card, text is as flavorful as ever, not much else to say.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
