This guy seems like the super hatemonger. If something tries to kill it, it tries to kill everything else around it. Oddly, I see this card getting abused in casual games and two-headed giant formats. Players can target it with a life gaining spell such as Drain Life for two damage and get a lot of creatures as once. Could be interesting. It's hard to get into play with any reliability though.

Constructed: 1
Casual: 2.5

Well, this one definitely got the short end of the stick.
I'm sure all the combo-jockeys out there see this and think "Might of Oaks". I see this and think "Putrefy at the worst possible time". The cost to size ratio is appropriate for a common and the ability will be a drawback as often as it is a boon. I tried to put together a five color Nephilim deck last week for testing and left this one out. It ran just fine and I never thought that I should add it. This is easily one of the worst cards in Guildpact.

Um....hmm. No, I don't think so. Unless someone comes up with some cockamamy use for this, I just can't imagine it being the bomb in four colors. It's just too unweildly to get it into early play, or into play at all, being 4 color, and is it really worth the effort? =/

Again, unless someone comes up with a viable combo, it's not worth casual consideration either. And definitely not for limited play.

Constructed - 1.5
Casual - 2
Limited - 1.5
