The old "new" Llanowar Elves. Yes, this is
exactly the same thing. Yes, this gets ordered a
LOT by my customers as added acceleration for
old school decks and casual play. Yes, it's a
good card. Yes, you should buy 4.
In theory this should be rated just the same as
Llanowar Elves. However, the Fyndhorn folk are
just copycats. We can't have that.
- It's just like Llanowar, but now you can have
8! I was always a big fan of Fyndhorn Elves.
Back when Ice Age came out, it was nice to have
a bit of variety in your mana elves. And these
ones look just a little meaner. I mean, they've
got knives! Obviously, whether it's Llanowar or
Fyndhorn, this is a powerful card. It's
important to note Fyndhorn not just as a backup
to your Llanowars but for their presence in Ice
Age block. In a pool of cards with so much
expensive overcosted stuff, Fyndhorn Elves are
the quick mana you need. Well, that and Orcish
Lumberjack and Tinder Wall. Ice Age was a good
time for fast mana.
