The nomadic and militaristic Staprion elves live on the forest floor in the shadowy heart of the Llanowar woods. Much of Llanowar's fearsome reputation has been earned and maintained by the Staprion. The Staprion were devastated in the Phyrexian invasion; their ruling clan was slaughtered and their homes were destroyed. Their inheritors have become even tougher and less compromising, roving the woods in gusts, warrior bands of fifty to hundred individuals. These gusts don't coordinate well and even sometimes fight amongst themselves.
