I found myself continually getting this card in packs. This was something I cursed, as I had no real use for it. But, in the end, I had a playset of them, and I was determined to find a way to abuse them. I started looking for 1-drop green creatures, as this was the obvious key ingredient to an infinite combo. After giving up on various ways of giving my Llanowar Elves haste, I found Wirewood Symbiote. I had supposed that the end step in my infinite combo would by that dastardly spell, Brain Freeze. Looking through some blue, I found the card that linked these two in Imagecrafter.

End result: With the Imagecrafter and the Tangleroot on the battlefield, play the Wirewood Symbiote and add g. Tap the Imagecrafter to make the Symbiote an Elf, return the Symbiote to your hand and untap the Imagecrafter. Use the mana from Tangleroot and repeat. Since each iteration of Wirewood Symbiote is unique, though it ... (see all)

Uh, 4 card combo? No. I'm surprised I've never seen this in extended elf combo though. It seems like it would work pretty well... Probably just no open slots, Cloudstone Cruio's definitely not coming out for it.

Speeds up green decks by a lot.

Clever combo. I've revised my rating because of it.

essence warden, glimpse of nature, the 60 different cost 1 less to cast cards, 1 CMC cards, 0 CMC cards... you could build an entire deck around getting cards out faster and faster. You might have trouble ramping up to 3 early on without overloading your mana later on though. Tricky mana curve.

@Forgeling: I prefer Ashnod's Altar, and I'm okay with Junk Diver as my second Myr Retriever. I'll also settle for Helm of Awakening, Cloud Key, Semblance Anvil, or sometimes Locket of Yesterdays instead of Tangleroot. Or Aluren, which totally isn't broken already (see Cavern Harpy + Brain Freeze or Horned Kavu + Grapeshot).

Ohh wow... I cant believe I havent seen how PERFECT this card is for my Animar, Soul of Elements deck.
Zero colorless manacost? Check.
Gain 1 green mana every time I play a creature like Fierce Empath, allowing me to play the Deadwood Treefolk I fetched, which then allows me to play the Garruk's Packleader I retrieved from my graveyard.. which pretty much allows me to empty my library onto the battlefield. CHECK!!!

I can handle the drawback of helping my opponents out a little when I benefit ten times as much.
Not to mention Tangleroot says "CAST" and not "ETB", so those pesky token decks everyone seems to run will hardly benefit at all.
