Awww, the nasty Lumberknot is now in bloom and trying to help! This is adorable. :3
Obviously pointless outside of a soulbond-heavy deck.

This set's Training Drone.
A little more difficult to work with. Expect to see it very late in the pack, 13-15th pick. People will take the basic land over it sometimes. But when you make the "soulbond deck" it has a chance of working out.

It's big, it's heavy, it's wood,
It's better than bad, it's good!

I recently played a draft with The Log and a bunch of crappy soulbonders like Galvanic Alchemist and Diregraf Escort and won a few games. I mostly got my butt kicked, but that was due to my low skill level, not to any inherent suckitude of The Log.

Guess I can't love all treefolk :/

Interesting. It's part of a fairly-well supported tribe, yet is totally useless in it.

anyone who says this card fails has not played it. i pulled two at the pre-release, and the only game i lost was the one i didn't pull it. turn four 5/5 with whatever bonus you add from soulbond.

The good thing about this: Decent body for decent mana.
Bad thing about this: You MUST have another creature that can Soulbound for this to do anything, unless you plan to Fling this.

Drawback aside, this guy is actually not bad for his cmc. Especially considering that it isn't colour heavy, which is important considering soulbond exists in different colours. If he was part of a casual deck that relied almost exclusively on soulbond it would feel like his drawback didn't exist. That makes it useful in extremely specific situations, and sort of fun in my opinion. I also enjoy the art and flavour.

creedfox is right, this card is loads of fun and seriously, Soulbond isn't exactly hard to come by. A 5/5 for 3{G}+ soulbond bonus is nothing to laugh at.

Wow! look at all the comments saying how bad this is or how it could have been better!
Okay, it's not a fantastic card, but let's just look at the possibilities real quick.

In color we have nightshade peddler giving deathtouch, pathbreaker wurm giving trample, geist trappers giving reach, and wolfir silverheart making it Huge(-er).

And if your willing to splash colors you're open to things like lightning mauler, nearheath pilgrim, and silverblade paladin.

So it's certainly not the best card to come out of the innistrad block, but it's by no means terrible, and by no means unusable.

thank you all for reading this.
