Bramblecrush

Creeping Mold, reworded to allow it to hit planeswalkers. Fitting, then, that a planeswalker provides its flavor text. I have no doubt that Bramblecrush will come to be a standard for Green's sideboards, allowing it to ensure an answer for anything sans creatures. There is no real strategy to speak of here, however. Dedicated land destruction decks are a dying breed, but Bramblecrush would no doubt find its way into such a deck. You simply identify the most troublesome permanent on the bored, aim, and fire. Utility in its purest form. I sincerely hope that Bramblecrush becomes a Core Set staple... if Magic's new Core Set system even has such a thing as "staples".

Casual- 3.5

Bramblecrush

This is about as straightforward as spells come - four mana to destroy almost anything seems like a pretty good deal to me. Even though creatures are very important in recent sets, those sets still definitely need an answer to equipment and lands with abilities; and since planeswalkers are here to stay, Bramblecrush will truly never lack targets. And you'll notice that it's not in the same color as all the crazy powerful planeswalkers - take advantage while you can!

Today's card of the day is Bramblecrush which as a four mana option to destroy anything that isn't a creature is one of Green's best options against a planeswalker that is also versatile enough to destroy lands, enchantments, or non-creature artifacts.  For a Green deck needing removal options this covers most of the bases and is worth at least a sidedeck slot if not maindeck for the more competitive builds.
 
In Limited this being a form of removal for Green makes it quite valuable, even in a format heavily dominated by creatures, as removing support can be just as important.  Definitely worth including in a Green build for Sealed as it should never be a dead card in hand if mana is available to cast it.  For Booster this is a good early draft after a Green first pick, but a large creature or equipment can offer a tough choice when in the same pack.
