Hmm the fact that he makes saproling tokens makes him better than he appears to be, although he's pretty high on a saproling deck's curve... plus he sort of goes against the overrun mentality of saprolings by taking so long to hit the board. oh well :\

Seems weak, I guess people like to reanimate it and get tokens.

I suppose you can get it out on turn 4 if you play Heartbeat of Spring or Overabundance but that depends on if you're willing to let your opponent have double mana. Overabundance has slight draw back for damage but if you're using your saprolings to fuel a Utopia Mycon for mana with a Manabarbs in play, players will be forced to adopt a conservative "least damage-best option" tactic but I wouldn't recommend it. Alternatively (and probably the better option) you can use Vernal Bloom since it only doubles the mana of all forests meaning you can run monogreen quite nicely. If you wanna be sneaky you can always "flash" it into play at the end of your opponents turn with Dramatic Entrance. Use Elves to make most of these cards work a turn earlier and hey you have a turn 3-4 Verdant force.

He saw lots of play in Reanimate decks. If they didn't kill him with Diabolic Edict in one turn, you got protection from that card and cleared the way for Iridescent Angel.
