Seems strange that no one's mentioned Axebane Guardian, which was printed in the same set. For two mana you get a land, a 0/2 body and at least one turn's worth of extra multicoloured mana from the Axebane. If you haven't played a land so far in the turn then it can completely replace what you used to cast it. In that context I'd say it's at least a 3.5.

I liked using this in sealed deck. Surprisingly frequent use for fetching a third land in time for turn three, not sure of constructed games but I was happy to see it in my opening hand during pre-release.

This better be leading up to some rather... MORE relevant Gate-based creature cards in the upcoming sets. Gates needs to be a good standard deck, I tell you what.

So solid. Well costed land tutor, common rarity, single color, and a decent chump-blocker.

3/5. A decent blocker with an ETB land fetch. Not bad.

If you're using this consider Borderland Ranger or Dawntreader Elk. I personally use all 3 for a Borborygmos Enraged deck. Solid 2-drop. 4/5.

I don't see why you'd ever grab a gate with him, though. Why not just grab a basic of the color you need so you can play it untapped?

Rampant Growth's Advantages
* Puts the land directly into play tapped.

Gatecreeper Vine's Advantages
* Choose either a basic land or a gate.
* Get a 0/2 defender.
* Putting the land in your hand can sometimes be better, if you didn't have a land to play that turn (or none of the color you need).

@Merlin117: You don't actually know what Rampant Growth does, do you.
I know a lot of players who are strapped for cash and they're gonna love this and the Gate cards.

Basic land OR a gate... this is incredible for the cost and rarity.

It fixes mana and gets in the way of an attacker. Not bad at all.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
