Thornling

So green gets a shapeshifter to match blue and red, eh? Well, Morphling and Torchling were both great. This has all the old favorites: one to protect it, one to give it evasion, +1/-1 and -1/+1, except one BIG difference: this one's a 4/4.

Morphling and Torchling can eat it.

Constructed- 4
Casual- 4
Limited- 4.25

It's Morphling's other cousin! I wonder if this kind of creature will be even more fun in green than it was in blue. While it won't much like being in all the same formats as Path to Exile until the end of days, blue never had Birds of Paradise and Blanchwood Armor and Might of Alara to attack for fifteen damage on the sixth turn!

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5

Thornling

A beast of beasts. If competition were not so high on the 5cc spot in aggro green decks, this would be there. However, there are many options at 5. Not many as flavorful as this. Nothing will ever compare to the orginal superman (Morphling for those newbies out there). However, WOTC came closer with this version. A pure bomb in limited.

Thornling

 

Constructed: Another 'shifted' card. It has some very nice abilities for a green creature. It being Mythic rare is what Morphling should have been, rarity wise. It could be used in some green mana ramp decks.

 

Casual: A green fatty with all of these cool abilities. Will play well in multi-player decks and it is not Legendary.

 

Limited: A real beat stick for green. Good thing it is a Mythic rare. Very few cards can deal with it. Used it with some Exalted creatures and have fun. Sealed deck it is a real fun card. We have not done the 'new' Sealed deck format yet.

 

Overall a very good creature with some fantastic ablities.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 4

Thornling

This card is a beast in limited, being indestructibe and all and swinging for game really quickly, and it's not a bad card in constructed formats either, well only Standard. But right now there's so many better green creatures like Chamelleon Colossus and Cloudthresher, it is hard to justify putting this in any deck. So it's not a bad card, but just out shadowed.

Constructed: 1.5/5, perhaps in some niche deck this serves a purpose
Casual: 3.5/5
Limited: 4.5/5
