It hasn't been errata'd to hexproof because it isn't hexproof. If you target a creature your opponent controls, they won't be able to target it while you still can, but the reverse would be true if it said hexproof.

Cards like these should see way more play. It saves your guy, it can speed the clock, it can do both at once as 1 card. It makes glistener elf swinf for half life on turn 2. Cards like this just win games if the resolve. And with no misteps around, well damn.

Great. Shroud can be a drawback as well as an advantage, selective shroud is just an advantage.

It's a counterspell and a pump spell.

Ugh, I hate it when people spout the word "broken" on cards that aren't.

Makes green relevant in the removal heavy standard environment. Not quite countermagic, but the next best thing. And it's tied to an optional (big!) buff, for extra green stompy.

Absolutely amazing card. I used 4 in my Elf deck, Eldrazi deck, and pretty much any other deck that was green or splashed green. And even though I rarely used the kicker (unless I was going for a kill-shot), the ability to counter both opponent-based offensive and defensive spells in one instant is a ridiculous asset. And for the cost of Green mana? This deserved uncommon, if not rare. But I'm glad Wizards made it widely accessible at common so that it's affordable not just to the rich.

Art is pretty ferocious. While one could ask, "is he being subdued or strengthened by the vines?" you only need to know the function of the card to understand. I think more color and/or definition could have been used in the background, but it's fine as is. The perspective is very powerful and is sure to remind your opponent that being on the receiving end of the kicker for this spell is not something that is to soon be forgot.

Holy crop a common that's worth a buck on star city games and actually worth it.

Only a common? Awesome.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
