    Yes, the Dryad Arbor lookalike in the trailer was this card (this has different art, because promo version).

    A mana dork (For 2) that they wont be able to kill without a boardwipe. I like her.

    A 0/3 body seems nice enough to block with if you need to.

    Silly, it's a slightly slower replacement for Arbor Elf that blocks Firefist Striker extremely well.

    Would block it waaaaaaay better if it were a 1/3.

    But hey, I'm greedy, and that goes a long way since I'd never even play decks with this card in it.

    Still, it's a MUCH better Utopia Tree.

    I like this card, but that really isn't a compliment much Rod Smile

    Well, sometimes it just works. I seriously want to see that deck against whatever aggro deck the format spits out, I can imagine it's hilarious.

    The conversation I had with my friend about this card went like this.

    "Well, looks like I have to wait until Reckoner is able to swing---"

    "Nah, wouldn't work."

    "Why's that?"

    "I'd just block, tap, and cast Smite. Boom! Dead Reckoner and I keep my mana dork."

    "...Why would you---"

    "Because I'm bad, that's why."

    Smite has seen actual play in Aristocrats.

    Just saying.

    I know, which is the amusingly sad part.

    Still, much better card than people give credit for. Utopia Tree that has to lose to a board wipe or combat matters when you produce any mana.

    You said Smite, and I thought about Loxodon Smiter.

    I genuinely didn't know Smite even saw play. xD
