    Say hello to my doran deck

  • Happy The Cat

    aww poor little treant, too bad it’s doomed to be a bulk rare for life…

    Doran and Sapling of Colfenor EDH just creamed a bit

  • Kahai

    Should have been an Elemental, to complement Soul of the Harvest.

    • Kahai

      Though, he does fit into my Ghave deck. My saps easily get past 4 toughness and I’d love to draw cards when I’m saccing them in the dozens. :3

    Call me spoiled, but I expect more from a rare 6-drop. Doesn’t replace itself, doesn’t protect itself, doesn’t reach, and doesn’t trumple. Ramp would rather just run an extra worldbreaker or ulvenwald hydra. Maybe some GB delirium decks might want this with moldgrafs, autumnal glooms, and mindwrack demons? Still, opponent will always kill this first to stop us from drawing cards. It isn’t bad, just ‘okay’. Textbook intro pack rare.

    • Melissa Juice

      You are spoiled.

      Rares like this are built for limited, and there it will be lovely.

      • Phoenix UNBENCHED

        “Oh, but rarity is a mechanism for limited, etc.” I understand this argument, and while you are technically correct (the best kind of correct), my observation still stands. This is also an intro pack rare, which is constructed product; I was trying to find a home for it in constructed. It is after all a fun and artistic card. Of course it’s a limited bomb. But c’mon, surely it deserved to also have trample, or at least reach. It’s a giant tree.

        • Melissa Juice

          For sure. I do wish they’d add small buffs to cards like this (such as the trample and/or reach you suggested). The card would still be relatively “weak,” but be a better and more flavorful card overall.

    I thought he was kinda good until I remembered Harvester of Souls.

  • Nebulium

    It’s like Soul of the Harvest and Harvester of Souls had a baby. An underachieving, lazy, spoiled baby.

    • Happy The Cat

      ulvenwald millennial?

      • Nebulium

        Exactly.

  • Elijah Bones Stewart

    Seems real weaksauce at Rare. Uncommon seems completely reasonable.

  • Melissa Juice

    Wonderful art. I’ll have to look into the artist.

  • Treebeard? Is that you?
