Beefed up Regeneration

Very nice card that has a lot of flexibility, which you can utilize different strategies. You need to buff up a creature? This is it. You need one of your creatures to have regen? This is it. I gave it a 5/5.

I can't make a case for this over Vines of Vastwood. I mean I realize it's a more permanent form of protection, but in today's fast meta someone can just zap your guy as you're trying to enchant him, thus canceling him and the enchantment. Not only that, but for it to be effective you would have to cast it with 2 mana in reserve, so you basically have to cast it for 5, again making sure your opponent has no mana available.

It's better in some decks, I can see this being a good supplement for Vines in a monogreen deck.

I have three of these in my Mono-Green and they have proved extremely useful. I would easily pay the 3 mana for the Regenerate ability alone and so the +2/+2 feels like a bonus.

I prefer Serpent Skin.

@ Nighthawk: in addition to terminate and white exile effects, you forget steal effects. And bounce. And auras that keep it from untapping/attacking. And sacrifice effects. And effects that get rid of the creature in response to you playing the aura. And that it practically works like your opponent having killed two of your lands, since you are forced to keep constantly two lands untapped (not to mention if your opponent tries to destroy it twice a turn or tap your lands). And... Well, let's just say it blows. :)

Canopy Cover or Vines of Vastwood over this for sure.

* Initially it looks great, but I'd rather have Oakenform for the same casting cost with +3/+3 without the regeneration.
* Keeping 2 mana for your opponents turn so they don't destroy your creature limits your mana resources
* For a pure green/green+artifacts deck, Blanchwood Armor would be the card of choice to use instead of this, as it would provide a +4/+4 bonus with 4 forests in play.

I prefer Gaea's Embrace. Am I a bad person?

Vines of Vastwood are better for sitting in your hand, waiting for your opponent to pull some shenanigans.

This card is better for high-fiving Uril, the Miststalker.
