Card of the Day Reviews 

Michael "Maikeruu" Pierno

Today's card of the day is Den Protector which is a two mana Green 2/1 with Megamorph for two, creatures with less power than it can't block it, and when it is turned face up you return a target card from graveyard to hand.  This creature has a lot going for it and prevents trading with weak blockers and the Megamorph adds support for the combat effect with the counter and card advantage which can be something to increase power as well.  Auras, counters, and equipment are of course great benefits to make this effectively unblockable, though even without them it is solid threat for low mana that recovers a card.  This should be a popular card in aggressive Green builds and can see play in any current format.
 
In Limited this is a solid first pick in Booster even though it is slightly weak as a creature it has both potential as an evasive threat or at least a strong trade and can add card advantage. There's no real drawback to running it in any deck using Green and it adds value to the pool in Sealed if choosing the color.

Den Protector
 
They've been very careful about Regrowth effects in the last few years - much less Eternal Witness analogues - and to be fair, you can sort of see why. Yet this card is a callback to both in many ways, even to the point of being reusable in conjunction with other notable cards from its block. There's an interesting tension in its design where you're tempted to hold off on casting it until you can recur something significant, but its mana cost is less than the cost to play a morph, and its face-up version will often just be stronger in aggressive decks than fooling around with megamorph. That means you'll need to read the situation carefully, but it's still extremely powerful in almost any deck that uses green (again, much like Eternal Witness).
