only deviation to speak of is Lorwyn


Is the deviation a shorter or longer lifespan? What is the lifespan of a Lorwyn elf?

Shorter. SUBSTANTIALLY shorter.
They only last about 40 years or so, it seems.

Elves in general live way too long. It's just a Tolkien thing everybody rolled with regardless of whether it made sense in other settings. I propose a moratorium on new fantasy settings where elves typically live more than 300 years unless the authors can justify it in the themes or mechanics of that work.
I'd caution you that I'm biased against elves, but when they keep doing stuff like this, I think seething rage is the objective stance on the blighters.

True, but also the Ravnican year isn't as long either.

If those figures aren't in Earth years then I imagine they'd be pretty hard to make use of. That's not the kind of math I want to be doing at the gaming table.

*"To YMTC it up" means to design cards that have value mostly from a design perspective. i.e. you would put them in a case under glass in your living room and visitors could remark upon the wonderful design principles, with nobody ever worring if the cards are annoying/pointless/confusing in actual play

Lorwyn elves are actually satyrs, but they're too proud to admit it.
