Storm turns this card into something useful. Not too sure if it will be a constructed card in Type 2, but block may find good uses for it. Vines has multiple uses, including thinning your deck to more useful spells, and letting you get the mana colors you need. It also assures more consistent land drops.

In limited, this card is really good. If you have a half way decent base color of green going, you should highly consider it for your limited deck. It allows you to play one of the many fatties that show up in your deck, and also help you be more colorful in your splashes.

Constructed: 2.75
Limited: 4

A nice land fetcher. Normally, you'd probably pay G or 1G to go get a land to put into your hand. But for 2G, you can almost always get 2 land, and sometimes more, depending on how much your opponent has done that turn. Great for a deck that needs the land thinning, or a particular type of land.
 
In limited, it shines even more, because you'll normally get 2 land turn 3 or 4, and can go get your splash color. Definitely play this if you are green, I'd estimate about a 6th-7th pick in draft, simply because it will get passed by the non green mages.
 
Constructed: 2.75
Limited: 3.5

Sprouting Vines is a card that I like, it will easily net you at least a few lands if played right and is an inexpensive card for multicolor decks.

Constructed - Dual lands are available but this could be a nice backup plan for budget builders - 2.10

Limited - This card is golden and well worth the slot - 3.25

PEZ - This card could make multi-color decks possible - 2.75

The fact that it is an instant and has the potential to fetch more than one land makes it pretty useful for a mana intense deck.
 
Limited:  This should definitely help smooth out your land drops for a very reasonable price.
 
Constructed:  3
Limited:  3.5

Sprouting Vines
card advantage in green is good, and this is especially useful in limited. 
Even late game it's very solid deckthinning.  in constructed though, you'd
generally have to be playing your full complement of krosan tuskers and
explosive vegetation before you'd put this in, I think.
constructed 2.9
limited 3.5
