First and only non-core set printing?

Also love the sly commentary in the flavor text, alluding to the card's rarity.

I used to think the Ravnica symbol was a bucket.

I like the new art so much better than the old art. I think the old one reminded me too much of a parot. Plus the original art wasn't even suppouse to focus on the bird.

@achilleselbow: Yeah, there was some degree of player voting on which cards went into 8th edition, and one of the face-offs was Llanowar Elves vs. Birds of Paradise. The birds won, but when 9th edition rolled around, R&D decided to stick with the Elves (being more iconic), but put the birds in Ravnica because they're so popular.

I love how the rating is so high. Yet Storm Crow beats it. So sad.

@Divine_Exodus: It just means that Storm Crow is strictly better.

Best pals with Unsummon, because even though they lost Core Set Survivor because of Ninth Edition, they still got cool new art from a multi-coloured block reprint.

Flavor text justifying its own printing.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
