Flash Foliage

This is a cute card. It replaces itself. The art is neat. And it gives you a blocker in a tight situation. It's definitely playable in limited formats. It's just hard to tell if it's worth even bothering with in constructed. For now, I'd have to say no.

Casual: 2

Flash Foliage

I like this card a lot. It's reminiscent of the way green used to have all kinds of Fog and Tangle effects. It's way trickier than green used to be, though. This little saproling is great. First of all, it's a cantrip. That's something green doesn't get a lot of, but it's nice to see. Secondly, it gives green a surprise way to block something - even a flying creature. The number of times you'll find a way to kill something with this card will surprise you. Who says green doesn't get direct damage? They just get it in a slightly different form.

Constructed Rating - 2.3
Casual Rating - 2.7
Limited Rating - 3.0

Meh...read this either 1/1 saproling blocking as an instant...keep in mind that it doesn't say it can't block flyers or anything special - or - 2G, Draw a card...either way, it's a little versatile, but is it amazing?

Not special enough for casual, but kind of interesting for limited - and it does give green a little card draw.

A tricky combat trick to say the least. Interestingly, you can target a creature with flying with this card, and you'll get a 1/1 non-flying Saproling that's blocking a flying creature. That's pretty good for the color that hates flying. And it cantrips. Don't forget the cantrip. If I hadn't, this card might have made my sealed deck on Sunday.

This is essentially a casual card, perfect for Saproiling decks with a Coat of Arms out. Oh, what, a 13/13 just came out of nowhere? :D

Constructed- 1
Limited- 2
Casual- 4
