One card does not make a color overpowered. One must think actually what everyone else has that green does not, Red, Black, and White have board wipes in addition to other things, death touch sacrifice, ect. Blue has counters, what does green have to deal with hexproof? their only hope is to outrace. So you could say that they gave one of the best hexproof creatures ever to the only people who CAN'T deal with it.

Wood Elemental, but without the suck.

If monogreen makes its way into Innistrad standard and beyond, this guy is going to be their flagbearer. Heck, even in a 2 color deck he's potentially a 2/2 on the turn you drop him, and still growing, which is pretty good for a hexproven creature.

In monogreen though - just wow. As of M12 standard he blunts a lot of the creature based assault from RDW, which is pretty significant for a 3 drop. He also combos very well with the Garruk, as your opponent can't remove your large creature (that is powering up Garruk's -3 draw) in response, thus allowing you to get up to 5 cards for 5 mana if you played Garruk off of 5 forests. That's card advantage out the wazoo - and it's in green no less!

People yell "powercreep" every time Green gets something good. Heaven forbid I get something that makes Green a viable color again. Green has good creatures people. Get used to it. If Green didn't have good creatures, it would be like Black without removal, Red without burn, Blue without counters, and White without... Well, white is kind of all over the color-wheel these days. Ajani, Elspeth, and Gideon need to get their shit together, seriously.

Either way, Green deserved this, and I don't think it's powercreep at all. People yelled powercreep at Leatherback Baloth, and it never saw standard play. People complain that everything dies to doomblade, and when Wizards finally prints something that doesn't die to doomblade, people call it overpowered. It has come to my attention that you're all a bunch of whiny kids who don't know what you want, and you can all go to hell.

Sincerely, Garruk

PS: Except for Vampire Nighthawk. That wa... (see all)

Dungrove Elder, I'd like you to meet Strata Scythe.

One of my favorite cards in M12, this guy is a house.

With the new Garruk which I think is very strong, this guy and other green creatures like Thrun, I think a mono-green could be somewhat viable post rotation.

Keep your Autumn's Veils handy to cover your casting of this. Hold onto a Withstand Death for wipes. Primal Bellow to rub it in, and Unnatural Predation for the win.

This guy is awesome, I love hexproof creatures, and the first deck I'll build when M12 is out is based on hexproof and auras, but strangely it's hard to find a place for this buy in it because it's not monogreen.
Would do really well in monogreen or in treefolk tribal, though.

even if it was only a 3/3 (assuming you had 3 forests upon casting), it'd still be ahead of the curve with hexproof as well. this is clearly powercreep, though nowadays powercreep could more aptly be described as merely reducing the mana cost by 1 for rares and 2 for mythics. not exactly creative designing but the masses will buy boosters.

Immune to Jitte. Great Treefolk tribal card. Combos with Forests.
