Sprout is better for saprolings. This is better for beasts, which aren't a terrible tribe, despite what people say. Saving your expensive beasties from Doom Blade? Sounds good. Giving trample to that one utility beast in your deck which doesn't already have it? Also nice. and a 1/1 chump if your opponent is playign a fast deck. I just wish that the 1/1 was a beast, so the card would function as a tribe-cohesive whole like Misery Charm.

Strictly better than Unnatural Predation.

For its CC, this is a really flexible card. The ability to give trample out for only 1 makes it pretty sweet, just for that.

Achilles, Sprout has a much more relevant tribe, and for that would get play.

Pretty versatile card for {G} at common, I mean you can use it to:

1. Give trample to that one big fatty that doesn't have trample and is chump blocked.
2. Create a 1/1 token which, can be pretty useful sometimes, especially against some of those red creatures that have very high power and lower toughness ratio, things like Igneous Pouncer or Kamahl, Pit Fighter.
3. Regenerate a beast creature, which is a rather relevant tribal type, and remember it can also effect anything that has the Shapeshifter subtype such as Chameleon Colossus.

Not a game-breaking card by any stretch, but still really good and goes far in the right deck!

Awesome in the Bogles/Auras deck in Pauper! Saves your guys from Electrickery, makes Curfew effects worst, and even saves your Aura Gnarlid if your opponent tries to toast it. Make room for your sideboard for this nice little gem!

The trample is the real star here, but if you're short on chump blockers, the insect token helps.

The beast section is not worth mentioning.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
