Wilderness Elemental

I'm always bothered by cards that have strengths dependant on your opponent. But, this could be a decent sideboard card if you knew your opponent was playing 70% or better (which some decks are) of the nonbasic variety. It's an interesting option, but nothing that's devastating.

Wilderness Elemental

In a format coming off of Ravnica, this could be pretty awesome. Goodness knows Standard decks are chock full of nonbasic lands, and this could get awesome quickly, but it's really a sideboard card. Besides, Dryad Sophisticate hoses expensive manabases much more effectively.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 2
Limited- 3

Wilderness Elemental - Nothing very surprising, here. A nonbasic land counting elemental creature isn't anything unexpected. It's fairly mediocre as well. If you play it on turn three, and assume that your opponent has three nonbasic lands (which is a lot for turn three), then you've got a Trained Armodon. Now, elephants are nice and all. But I wouldn't call them constructed playable. And, of course, this thing is next to useless in Coldsnap limited where nonbasic lands are usually limited to Mouth of Ronom and Scying Sheets. No, I don't think there's much use for Wilderness Elemental anywhere. Too bad, it looks pretty cool.
