Elvish Visionary
 
This is one of my favorite creatures of the modern era. It's such a small creature, with such a seemingly small effect, yet it can be so important in the right deck - an incremental-advantage deck can hardly ask for anything more efficient, while a deck that wants to take advantage of either of its tribes (Gilt-Leaf Archdruid!) will often find an extra card or two to make the difference between it and rival tribes. It's also the perfect example of its design and color convention, and as such I'm extra glad that it was in the last core set to be made (I will always shed tears for that decision (at least until they decide to bring core sets back because there's no place to exemplify design and color conventions)).

BMoor Elvish Visionary

This card really only exists to help you dig through your deck for cards. It's filler, simple as that. A 1/1 creature is nothing to be excited by, except this one is an Elf. Elf decks are quite good at getting a lot of value out of even the most insignificant Elves, and this lets you add a body to the table and draw (hopefully) another Elf to play. Good in Elf tribal, and in combo decks where every card that isn't your combo is really just in your way.
