Wilt-Leaf Liege


A 4/4 for 4 in green or white?  Green is used to it, but white doesn't normally get such efficient mid-to-high end beaters.  Could this be the new Crovax, Ascendant Hero in white weenie?  Could it make green/white decks a force to be reckoned with despite their historical shortcomings?  To say nothing of its discard-stymieing ability-- is this the end of Tarmorack?  Well, Quagnoth wasn't, so I doubt it, but we can all hope, right?

Constructed- 3

Casual- 4

Limited- 4

Wilf-Leaf Liege
 
Having already played against this card in Standard testing, I have to say I find it one of the most annoying cards in the set. Ever stared down a 5/4 Kitchen Finks, or even a 3/3 Elvish Hexhunter? Aaron Forsythe wrote an article on the Wizards of the Coast site in which he mentioned that R&D was very close to putting Armadillo Cloak in Time Spiral. For the first time ever, I'm glad they didn't.

Wilt-Leaf Liege

 

Constructed: Great card for 4 mana. Green and White creatures can get really big with this Elf Knight in play, plus it is not legendary. There is no discard for block, maybe Pulling Teeth, but his ability can be really good against a random Hymm. Another elf pumper for the elves in block.

 

Casual: Most elf decks are solid green, so it's hybrid mana cost will make it fit in any elf deck.

 

Limited: Very high on the draft picks, I would hate to play against it. It's 4 toughest makes it hard to deal with in limited. Sealed deck it's a bomb if you have enough green and white creatures to go with it.

 

Overall great card, with good solid stats.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 4

Limited: 4
