Definitely better than the other M11 leylines in at least one key way—this one stacks with other copies of itself. In other words, one can run four copies of this much more confidently, as it greatly increases the chance of getting one in the opening hand and doesn't turn three cards into dead draws.

Green/White can make a pretty mean lifegain/weenie deck with this, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, and Ajani's Pridemate.

Certainly a solid Leyline. As others have mentioned, it's not as flashy as, say Leyline of Anticipation (see what I did there?) or as potentially gamebreaking as Leyline of Sanctity. But along with Anticipation, it's really about the only one that you could put in any number to just about any deck, against any deck, and feel good about. (Of course having extra copies of Anticipation is no bother if you need Force of Will fodder.)

It really surprises me how many people seem to judge this card without giving much thought to how it interacts with the rest of the environment. This puts green's staple 3 toughness creatures out of Bolt range. 4 toughness creatures used to ruin red burn/aggro, until Flame Slash came out. Guess what Leyline of Vitality does to those formerly nightmarish X/4s. And with the current metagame basically being a quick race down to 0 life, buoying y... (see all)

This is good for Eldrazi spawn and other token decks.

The bane of any player using black decks using Blood Seeker.
lol saves Rhys from dealing massive damage to you when you use his double ability.

Anyone who thinks this card is bad hasn't actually looked at the card. It's the only leyline that's good in multiples, its awesome for gw life gain (obstinate baloth, momentous fall, pelakka wurm, ajani's mantra, serra ascendant, baneslayer angel, felidar sovereign, survival cache, kabira crossroads), and it hoses red. You get two out on turn one and play a bird of paradise you have a 0/3 that gained you 2 life.

Here's another fun combo.. mitotic slime, 4/5 that splits several times to give you huge life gain, splinter twin on top of that for more life gain than you can shake a stick at. Anything that produces repeating tokens is also amazing.. mycoloth, ant queen, dragon broodmother, awakening zone, and etc. It makes protean hydra indestructible to burn and combat damage. It makes garruk's companion into a 3/3 as well. It gives ajani's pridemate an immediate +1/1, and then another +1/1, if you have two out or more life gain.

You can basically view this enchantment as turn ... (see all)

Leyline of Vitality + Howl of the Night Pack + 7 Forest = 7 life ??

Much better than you might think. A two-drop Protean Hydra becomes a menace.

Not the best of the M11 Leyline cycle, but not the worst, and definately the second most playable in limited.

Its the only one that having multiples is useful.

The only green creature in the set this can move out of bolt range is Wall of Vines, that just seems odd for some reason.
