There really isn't anything good to say here.
It's kind of sad this card keeps getting
reprinted. No one ever plays it. There are a
million green fatties that are much better and
more efficient. This will likely be another rare
that just gets to sit around.
If you ever wanted to see a good example of a
big green finisher, Force of Nature would be it.
For six mana, you get a true monster that will
be dealing out eight damage in one way or
another every turn, be it to a blocking
creature, an opponent, or even yourself. The
upkeep can be a bit harsh, and the four green
mana in its casting cost ensure that Force won't
be making too many appearances in decks with
only moderate amounts of green. Overall, for
constructed or casual play, I can't give Force
of Nature a really high rating, but I can't
bring it too far down either.
With limited in mind, as long as my deck was two
colors and at least half of the deck is green,
Force of Nature will absolutely make the cut. It
can easily be a game-breaker, and as we all
know, those generally go in the deck and not the
Certainly a fun card, and it’s very nice to see
it reprinted. However, with a four mana per turn
cost, you’re very vulnerable to land
destruction. It’s also difficult to get out.
Don’t plan on letting this see play in
Constructed unless you’re playing against a deck
with no removal, no land destruction, and no
counters, but how often do you see those decks?
With the power level of 9th edition, it
shouldn’t see much more play in limited, sadly.
Permanently attaching four green mana sources is
difficult in any environment, especially in
limited. If you have that kind of mana
available, I’d rather use it to cast Biorythm or
Verdant Force. Although, considering green got
torn up pretty badly in 9th, comparatively, this
isn’t that bad.
Force of Nature
Force of Nature is powerful and cheap for its
size, until you get to its first upkeep. In
limited, this will often be a perfectly playable
green creature, but it isn’t likely to be a
first pick in draft. As for constructed, there’s
not a lot going on here, either. By today’s
standards, and 8/8 trampler for six mana is
decent, but nothing great. The upkeep makes it
impossible to play in reanimator-style decks.
Force of Nature doesn’t really DO anything
except attack, either, so you’re basically
looking at it as just a giant body. Not very
