Twinblade Slasher
 
Take one Basking Rootwalla, subtract madness, but add wither and tribal interactions; bake for two hours at 250 degrees. I'm a fan of this card, as it provides a pretty significant clock but with an incentive not to block it, which the Rootwalla and even Wild Mongrel didn't really have. Should a mono-green aggro deck emerge (not a given, seeing as Wizards has decided that we must all play three-color decks in Standard for another two years with Alara), this card could play a role, probably along with Nettle Sentinel and Wren's Run Vanquisher.
 
Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 2/5

Twinblade Slasher

 

Constructed: If it did not have Wither I would not give this Elf any high marks. First turn drop, second turn swing for 3, anything that gets in the way get Wither down. I am surprise it is not being used more in Elf decks.

 

Casual: Another sticking Elf for the Elf decks of doom.

 

Limited: If I was going green I would pick this one. Being uncommon I would not expect to see extras come around.

 

Overall a good Elf. I have not really seen a Elf I did not like or hate to play against.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 3

Limited: 2

 

Have a great weekend.

BeJoSe Twinblade Slasher
Wither (This deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters.)
1 ManaGreen Mana: Twinblade Slasher gets +2/+2 until end of turn. Play this ability only once each turn.
1/1
 
Constructed - No real reason to run this, if your running elves just run Vanquisher for a constant 3/3 and deathtouch.
1/5
 
Limited - Nice here, you can beat someone at elast once is going to forget about his pump ability during combat. Otherwise its still a nice beater than, if things get bad, you can weaken your opponents beater
3/5
 
Casual - Again, nothing special here
2/5
