I'm not sure how I feel about this card. In the right deck, this card could get out of hand pretty quickly. But it does take time to get large and that might be the issue. Even if you let it get five or six counters on it, it's still easily destroyed. I'm not sure if it's worth the investment. However, the cost is small, so it might be worth giving it a shot.

I'm amused by this card. It seems solid enough to me, as it can be a bear the turn it comes into play and then slowly become a viable threat as the game progresses. I won't go so far as to say it belongs in every green deck, but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see a large number of Vinelasher Kudzus roaming about the Standard scene.

In limited, you absolutely play this card if at all possible. Knowing that big creatures are a valuable commodity, you can get away with making one early in the game and be at an early advantage. It doesn't hurt that your land ratio in limited decks is usually a bit higher than in constructed.

A very nice card, with a cost that makes it worth considering. If the ability came at 4 mana, then it really is stupid, but because you can get it on the board turn 2, it actually has time to be effective. I high pick in limited play, and will probably find some casual interest too. It has some nice synergy with the common 2 color lands of the set.
