It's basically green hate for black, Lorwynized.
If your opponent is playing green, this can mess
him up right proper. I don't think it's worth
sideboard space in Constructed when there's
cards like Deathmark in Standard, but in
Limited, if you end up with one and are playing
black, remember that this is there when you find
a green mage.
Maindeck? Well. if you're already running lots
of goblins in Limited, maybe.
Now this card has been a bomb for me in limited.
The effect at first read looks to be very bad
but remember all changelings are also treefolk.
So this card can become an easy 2 for one
Green creatures with forestwalk are very
unusual, so that in itself all but guarantees
Boggart Loggers will hold people's attention.
Green is very strong in Lorwyn limited, and a
lot of the time these guys are simply
unblockable. I think the best thing Boggart
Loggers does, though, is the ability to destroy
Treefolk; that hits such difficult-to-handle
creatures as Doran, Oakgnarl Warrior, Dauntless
Dourbark, Cloudcrown Oak, Changeling Titan, and
Cairn Wanderer. Very playable card in limited,
probably not so much in constructed (unless your
Goblin deck really needs to destroy Overgrown
Tomb for some reason).
Constructed: Black has been one of the 2nd
string land destroyers for a while now
(sometimes ahead, sometimes behind green) and
Boggart Loggers shows of black flexing its
muscles in flavorful creature and land kill.
Flavor doesn’t make a great card though as this
is far too narrow for standard purposes. Rain of
Tears will do better to kill land, and there are
much better creature kill alternatives. Doesn’t
even warrant a sideboard plan as everything
seems to cost 1 mana too much or be attached to
a body that could have used an extra power or
Casual/Multi: Land Destruction on a one-for-one
scale never works in multiplayer (unless your
plan is to annoy one player) and a card this
narrow isn’t even going to be able to deal with
4/5ths of the lands that you could end up
against. Also only being able to destroy
Treefolk is even more narrow (though can be
offset with cards like Unnatural Selection for
Limited: This is a perfect sideboard card for
black decks. Not only does it offer great
evasive properties against forest packing
opponents but it’s ability to hit lands and
treefolk can offer the ability to hurt a
struggling manabase working on a small green
splash, or punish an opponent for using the fat
Champion creatures like Changeling Hero and
Titan. It’s potential as a maindeck card is a
lot more limited though as most often your
targets will be a few sparse changeling
creatures that your opponent might not have even
managed to draft. 6 mana to play and use though
is not the best piece of removal compared to
cards like Eyeblights Ending, Neck Snap, Crib
Swap or Lash out.

For Treefolk hate, it's pretty slow. The ability
cost is rather expensive as well so it's hard to
keep 3 mana always open to sacrifice when
necessary during the opponent's turn.
In limited, it does have Forestwalk so it can
come in handy.
