Air elemental

(1/3) > >>

Halewijn:
In the spirit of all the recent conversations about elementals:

Can we consider the Whirling Spirit as the air elemental? He surely looks like one, but he does not have the name, not have the subtype elemental and is considerably weaker than the other 3 elementals?

If he is not, what is the difference between an "elemental" and a "wind spirit"? And if he is not the elemental, could we expect the air elemental some day?

Could there be a lightning elemental or an ice elemental?

I think of the Whirling Spirit as analogous to Iron Golem and Magma Golem - e.g. Air's non-Elemental non-living creature/construct.

I expect we'll see a true Air Elemental in the Forcemaster vs Wizard spell tome expansion (or whatever product gives us a female alternate Wizard).

*edit* Was there a "Swirling Spirit" or something analogous to a golem/spirit for the Siren?

Halewijn:
In contrast to the golems, it does have its own mind/spirit and is not psychic immune.

Donovan:
Is there a ruling that Elementals have Psychic Immunity - even if the card does not say this?

Halewijn:
No, elementals do not have it.

Golems however are magical constructs (magical walking machines) and do not have an own mind. They have the psychic immunity traith.
