Card Me: Gyre Sage

Gyre Sage
 is one of my favorite cards in Magic: The Gathering. She is a vital piece in my mono-green deck.


Card Name: Gyre Sage
Mana Cost: 1Green
Converted Mana Cost: 2
Types: Creature — Elf Druid
Card Text: Evolve (Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, if that creature has greater power or toughness than this creature, put a +1/+1 counter on this creature.)
Tap: Add Green to your mana pool for each +1/+1 counter on Gyre Sage.
Watermark: Simic
P/T: 1 / 2

Besides being relatively easy to evolve as a 1/2 creature initially, she serves a dual purpose of being a good mana dork with potential of being a decent fighter later on if necessary.

Any opponent who lets my Gyre Sage stick around usually encounters trouble later when I cast my stronger creatures quickly due to Gyre Sage’s mana-ramping ability.

A wonderful card. Plain and simple.
