Both this and VoV have their uses. Honestly, I prefer the Vines, for the Giant Growth effect and wider application. This prevents destruction, but Vines prevents a whole slew of annoying effects

I'm not sure whether I like this or Vines of Vastwood better. Vines protects my creatures from RFG and any other targeted effects, but this gives me a few more interesting of combat tricks. Guess I might use both! :D

Efficient counter-removal? For green? Yes, please.

Board wipe and deathtouch. The two things this does that Vines can't.

Of course, that's two very good reasons to use this alone.

And with all the creature kill around, having both this AND Vines is useful. After all, I might run out of blocking spells before I can get my Canopy Cover onto my Scute Mob.

The one thing it has over Vines of Vastwood? The creature can survive Wrath of God, Vines doesn't get that luxury.

This is a very good and useful card. And it's an Instant! And it only costs a single {G}!

But I don't see it get much play now, but once the Eldrazi block rotates out this may become much more common in decks. Especially if the Umbra's and Vines don't come back.

Come on Day of Judgement is overused just like Wrath of God and Wizards gives a one mana solution and it still isnt enough!!! Magic players are such cry babies!!!

This definitely helps the Phyrexians more than the Mirrans.

A situational card. Look at it this way: Lure your non infect opponent to attack, throw this down, and he has tapped out a card. Now he can't block when YOU attack

Every conflict ends in death or darksteel? To be honest, I can't even begin to describe how frustrated I would be if my sworn nemesis one day suddenly started wearing darksteel plate :/

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
