Judge Bill

One of the best Elves ever printed. It brings in the flavor or Elves so well, and it produces tons of mana to boot. This will be an integral part of an Extended Biorhythm deck. It has also been used in the past to generate obscene amounts of mana to either cast a lot of creatures or X-spell you out. I've also generated infinite squirrels with this, Intruder Alarm, Deranged Hermit, and Tradewind Rider. One of the more fun combo decks I've played.
 
In limited, however, this guy is nearly useless. In Saga Block Limited, you never had more than 1 or 2 elves, so he never produced much mana.
 
Constructed: 4
Limited: 1.5

1st turn: Forest, Llanowar Elf
2nd turn: Forest, Priest
3rd turn: Forest, Child of Gaea

There wasn't much else to say after that. Toss in an elvish lyricist at some point and you got even more mana. Unfortunately, 2 sets later (in Urza's destiny)
they printed Rofellos, who generated even more mana than the priest so, once again, a good card was eclipsed by a great card. I'll give her a 2.5 in constructed, rising to a 4 if you couldn't get your hands on any other mana accelerators (like the rare Rofellos).

Unless you manage to get some more elves in your limited game, she'll only spped you up by one turn, although this could be useful. A 3 in limited.

This is everyone favorite fun card.  Elves are cheap to make and some even have nifty abilities.  As far as we can tell, Onslaught is only going to help this card get into more decks.  I would expect to sell a lot more priest of titanias over the next couple of months.

In limited, the Priest of Titania isn't such a big deal.  If you just needed some extra mana to cast things, then go ahead and play it.  Otherwise, it pretty much uselss as a creature.

Constructed: 3
Limited: 2.3

A very good, utilitarian card. A must have for any green deck trying to score a lot of quick mana.
