Quirion Elves

These elves have that interesting bit of versatility that allows them to tap for any color that you choose. This allows them to fit any build for almost anything if need be. I wasn'ta huge fan of this card, but it was generally handy at times.

Quirion Elves

Another solid mana smoother. Quirion Elves are a solid way to smooth a Green based deck splashing X. You can name any color, so it's very helpful in picking what you are lacking. A nice way to round out mana elf week!

Quirion Elves - It's a good thing to look at Quirion Elves this week.
They made a reappearance in Invasion, but they've always been a Mirage card in my mind. And very soon, Mirage will be returning to the forefront of Magic with it's release on Magic Online. So just how good is this card with the rest of the set? Honestly, I don't think it's very good. When it showed up in Invasion, it allowed you to play nice with all the great multicolored stuff in the set. In Mirage, the multicolored theme was a bit more subdued.
However, it is still a mana elf. Like all the others, this week. Among the 2-drop mana elves, I would put Quirion right at the top, but it still can't hold a candle to Fyndhorn and Llanowar.

Constructed Rating - 2.5

Quirion Elves

I can't say that I'm a huge fan of Quirion Elves, especially if Birds of Paradise or Elves of Deep Shadow are an option. In fact, I'd play Llanowar Elves over these guys and take my chances at getting hosed on mana. The fact that you have to pay two mana for a creature that only produces one mana and doesn't bring anything else to the table really hurts this card. I can't rate it too highly in any format, but at least in Limited, you can get a jump on mana when few other people do.
