It's not just that the Kinship'd cards are free, it's that he works with so many different cards. Especially if he's got a Runed Stalactite on him.

But even if we just limit ourselves to Treefolk, getting a free Doran is pretty amazing in and of itself, especially considering that Leaf-Crowned Elder effectively becomes a 5/5 when that happens.

Powerful synergy with Oracle of Mul Daya. This gets the Oracle out for free if it's on your topdeck, and then the Oracle makes it so your topdeck is almost never a land.

Turn 2 Bosk Banneret into either of these turn 3 makes for a very nice bit of tempo.

My favorite part of him is that his ability isn't redundant with multiple. As long as the top card of your library Is a treefolk or a shaman, when the next one triggers you can look at another card.

@OpenSeasonNoobs: Yes indeed, if you somehow make this an Eldrazi, it will let you *cast* Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. The reason this text still says "play" that card is just in case you reveal Dryad Arbor which is a land. We still "play" lands even though we "cast" creature spells.

The hilarious part is when you hit another Leaf-Crowned Elder. And another. And another. If your deck is packed with trees and shaman it will eventually get silly.

This guy is absolutely insane in treefolk tribal; the heart and soul of the deck. 4 mana is about the going rate for something that gives you repeated card advantage, and also about the going rate for getting creatures out without paying their cost, as well as for a 3/5 body (the original treefolk was 5 mana for that body). But put all three together on the same card, that works automatically without any further costs? Whoa.

Oh hey, it's a Ghoultree.

The word "play" is not obsolete in Magic. "Play" means "cast it if it's a spell, otherwise put it onto the battlefield if it's a land." You cast spells, but you play cards. Magus of the Future demonstrates why the distinction is necessary, and Oracle of Mul Daya would be meaningless without it.

@Luke_BPC: Because if it became a Dryad (through Runed Stalactite or Conspiracy), it would be able to play a Dryad Arbor, which isn't a spell.
