Ernham Djinn - Monday

This guy is classic. I'm slightly upset that it's even part of a vote. He should be automatically included in the set. He's quality, but he's a different kind of quality. I also think he doesn't stand a chance, because newer players don't understand why he is good. They are going to vote for what they know and unfortunately, the don't know Ernham Djinn.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 2
Limited: 2.5

Ernham Djinn

This guy's legacy speaks for itself. A 4/5 for four
mana-- almost unheard of without a drawback. But this guy DOES have a drawback, and it's a weird one. But I guess it would really make you think. If your opponent has a 2/4, say, and you give it Forestwalk, you could make your opponent think twice about blocking the Djinn with it. And since Walls have been outmoded, you could always just target that Souls of the Faultless or whatnot. And with all these bouncelands, you could get him into play without actually controlling a Forest, making him a good splash card. But still,Green is not the color of big,drawback creatures.

Constructed- 3
Casual- 4
Limited- 2

Ernham Djinn
 
The old school beef of the Green variety. Erny has had its place in the past, but its goodness has been replaced with better green cards for today's environments. But Erny should still be considered for casual play as a low cost "Get In There" monster. So you give your opponent's crappy creature (how about a birds?) forestwalk...no biggy. In casual, you can splash Green for Ernham, and play Signets or non basic lands that produce green, eliminating Djinn's drawback.
 
In limited, he's a very nice fat guy, and I'd likely add him to my green build.
