Yeva, Nature's Herald
 
Do you guys remember Teferi, from Time Spiral? I don't blame you if you don't; that was getting to be a long time ago now. A friend of mine still refers to that guy as "Teferi the BS planeswalker," despite the fact he was printed with the type "creature." He was basically the best creature in the block, and that was in a time you had to bend your manabase to get other creatures in the deck that would really devastate people when cast with flash. Yeva . . . well, to be honest, I like her a lot better if solely because of the fact that she's bringing this ability to the "right" color; but it's also a fact that you don't have to bend your manabase anywhere near as much if you want to flash-cast creatures like Acidic Slime and Thragtusk and Huntmaster of the Fells and Sigarda and Loxodon Hierarch and Vigor and Silklash Spider and Thornscape Battlemage and you get the idea. She changes the game at least as much as Teferi did, and arguably gives green a bigger boost in the current environment than Rancor. Yes, really.

Welcome back readers todays card of the day Yeva Natures Herald an extremely powerful green creature. In standard being able to drop threats at instant speed and play around what little countermagic that exists in the format makes it an incredibly strong card the fact it is a 4/4 all by itself means it’s not irrelevant and  can be a powerful tool in the powerful emerging aggressive red and green decks. In modern flashing in a Tarmogoyf could be quite powerful and having access to some of the most powerful green creatures from across multiple sets definitely means this card will find a home. In legacy and vintage I feel elf decks are positioned to take advantage of this card as it allows you to cast Elvish Visionary’s on opponent’s turns and allowing you to deploy all sorts of cards at instant speed. In casual and multiplayer every legendary creature is a potential commander but this one is more powerful thn others giving green a way to flash in creatures to act as creature destruction, play around blue decks and provide a lot of combo interactions making it quite powerful. Otherwise it provides a powerful threat and allows you to never tap out on your turn which is important in multiplayer. In limited its solid and if you get enough creatures it can be quite powerful providing a powerful effect and a solid body. Overall a homerun card that provides a powerful tool for tournament and kitchen table players.

Today's card of the day is Yeva, Nature's Herald which is a four mana
4/4 Green Legendary elf with Flash that allows you to play all of your Green creatures as if they had Flash.  This is a card with serious potential and definitely an enjoyable one to play as it drastically alters the way Green can operate in a given game. Playing creatures at the end step of your opponent's turn or in response to a declared attack offers improved survival and removal to a color with few options in those areas.  As an elf she does well in a theme deck, but can be used in just about any mono-Green build with creatures that can either impact the battlefield when they come into play or when blocking.
 
For Limited a 4/4 for four is a solid card, add in Flash with the ability granted to your other creatures and you have a first pick that can be a powerful support card and offensive or defensive threat.  The double Green is manageable and even without other creatures the 4/4 is durable against most creatures or burn and should be one of the better choices to fill in the mana curve in Sealed.  There is no real drawback to playing Yeva in the format and even the option of playing creatures on your opponent's turn will likely have a psychological impact whenever you have a card in hand.

     Welcome to another card of the day review right here at Pojo.com! Today we are taking a look at Yeva, Nature’s Herald from M13. Yeva, Nature’s Herald is a rare legendary green creature elf shaman that costs two generic and two green mana and is a 4/4. Yeva has flash and says that you may cast green creatures cards as though they had flash.

       Yeva is one of the five legendary creatures that was printed in the M13 set. While she is definitely one of the better ones, she is not the best in my opinion, but can certainly change the game tempo. Now your opponent will never know what lies behind untapped mana. Spells, or instant blockers. Hard to properly plan a move with the potential of some big creature landing in the way. And at a 4/4 herself, with flash, she can enter the battlefield as such a surprise, and should mana allow, even bring a friend.
