Happy St. Patricks
Day!! I hope you're wearing green, or I'm
going to have to pinch you.
So nobody can find
anything good to say about the poor leprechaun?
Gee, I wonder why... Okay, I was bound and
determined to come up with SOMETHING nice to say
about or do with this guy. How about this...
Aisling Leprechaun and...Lure...
Hibernation!! Yeah, that's it! Or even
better, how about Leprechaun, Lure, and
Anywho, I've heard if you can't say anything nice,
don't say anything at all. So I'm going to shut up

A nice card for St.
Patrick's day. Who doesn't love a leprechaun?
Unfortunately, the ability granted by this guy
is ridiculously weak. What benefit is it that it
makes some creatures green? I would much rather
play a Llanowar Elves or another 1/1 for 1 over
I can't rate this in
limited, since I've never played Legends
limited, and probably never will.

OK, I'm going to be
negative today too. This thing is pretty bad.
On the positive side, it at least comes as a 1/1
creature for one mana that has an ability.
However, changing something to a green creature
isn't that great. And your guy usually dies.
It seems really silly. You might be able to
make use of it, but it would take a lot of other
I wouldn't touch
this guy with a ten foot pole in limited. I
think R&D dislikes this guy so much he's not
even in consideration for being reprinted any
time soon. I don't think I have even sold one
of these guys to a casual player...ever.

This little guy is hard to love. You have to think
pretty far outside of the box (as in
noncompetitive) to make this card good. Super
combo with COP:Green? It’s fun to look at old
Legends cards. Espcially for St. Patricks Day. Top
of the morning. If you need me, I’ll be driving
the snakes out of Ireland.
I like the art, but while this guy may be better
than a lifelace, that's
only because the color-changing bit is probably
not relevant. 1/1 for 1.
If he were in a creature oriented environment
along with perish and slay,
he'd be interesting. He's not.

From the D’Angelo
Rulings Summaries: Extended tournaments (see Rule
803) have always banned this card.
Obviously this card is
much too powerful for even the extended
environment, which is known for turn 3 and 4 kills
right now. It’s very powerful in weenie rush decks
and combo decks alike. Can you imaging an Aisling
Leprechaun with Lure on it? Suddenly you have
turned an entire opponent’s army green! And after
you do that you can...
Be back later, green

Fear the power of the Aisling Leprechan. If he
gets blocked by your creatures or blocks yours he
will turn them green…oh the terror. I guess if you
combo him with things like Parish you could do
something usefull with him but I don’t think
people will combo this guy with anything but a
Holiday. I don’t see it getting used in any

So, we have a
pointless ability attached to a very small
creature that doesn’t seem to combo well with
anything; in other words, a big bag of nothing.
Collect him and put together a full page of him in
your fun binder, but don’t worry about what
“impact” he might have on a constructed game.
In a group game or
any other casual environment, this guy should
still get you laughed off the table. This should
be followed with poor jokes like, “Wow, my
creature’s green with envy!” or, “I’m going to sue
if my Serra Angel gets sick from being turned
green,” or whatever other awful humor you can come
up with. Similar policy should be enforced if your
opponent puts him into play during Mental Magic.
If you draft
Legends, then I’m sure there’s got to be something
better than this guy. Please. Just play something
Where’s the gold? Ah, darn, I
caught one, but I don’t find any gold, just lots
of green creatures. Maybe semi decent in Casual.
Make all their creatures green, so you can destroy
them with Terror (obviously if it wasn‘t a legal
target before). Otherwise, blah.
Oh yeah, I should say something
good about this guy, well…… I’m wearing green
today and I didn’t take his gold. Crafty creature.
Alright this is stupid. All I
can say is, I have no clue what to do with this
card.Limited: don’t even go there.
