Yeah, cascade works.And just a note OpenSeasonNoobs, it would technically take 6 mana to kick a bushwhacker and cast a ranger =). And it would be swinging for 11, not 10 (5 for vengevine, 4 for ranger, 2 for bushwhacker=11)

I saw a match at FNM, it was a jund mirror.
Turns 1&2 were just playing tapped lands for both players, then the guy plays a sprouting thrinax
other guys turn 3 blightning him, the guy discards...a pair of vengevines. His turn (he's on the play, in case you hadn't noticed) he cast a bbe, into hell's thunder (I didn't know people run that?) and swings for 19 (4 from BBE, 4 from hell's thunder, 8 from vengevines, 3 from sprouting thrinax). The other guy draws for his turn, pulses the vengevines....and lightning bolts himself (seppuku!). I assume he was conceding.

It was a really awesome game though.

I predict seeing this on the ban list after not to long.

No nonlegendary mythics, please. You could've named it "Vengevine, Root of Sorrow" or something.

While I dislike how expensive this thing is, I like that it shows how much fat they're willing to give Green. Green's creatures should be the best, no ifs and buts about it.

Survival of the Fittest...

I got this guy at the prerelease and it quickly became one of my favorites. It's got haste, but the greater-than-1 toughness to back it up and it's a good value at 2GreenGreen. Love the art as well. Still, I do NOT feel that this should be mythic rare. One by itself is solid uncommon fodder, the fact that you can run four should probably bump it up to rare, but mythic rare? I hope that the reason for this rarity is that Wizards found something in playtesting that we haven't yet that just breaks this guy. This seems unlikely, though, given Wizards record of determining what is broken (Skullclamp). Still, I like my Vengevine a lot. If it only had the Kudzu's flavour text (in my opinion the greatest plant-based flavour text of all time), it'd be my favorite creature of all time (besides Phytohydra, of course). This is just an inexplicable personal sentiment towards it, but I love this thing. It's like a security blanket; it's comforting that even when it gets Bolted, it's there, waiting. Lastly... (see all)

I don't get why people are hating on this card. All you need is 1 card to bring it back EVERY TURN. Just keep playing Kor Skyfisher, bounce it to your hand, replay it, bounce it to your hand. Same CMC as Vengevine, and you can do this every turn, being kor skyfisher is always bounced to your hand. Do you have any idea how sick that is when they are in top-deck mode? If they ever draw a removal spell when you have this going, its GG, because it blanks almost every time on Vengevine. Or even better, when they blightning you? "Oh no! i have to discard my Vengevine(s)!" G/W Aggro just got incredibly real with this, ranger of eos, and kor skyfisher. Best part is kor skyfisher has barely any drawback when you don't have vengevine. "Oh no! I have to bounce a land and refuel my steppe lynx!"

A pretty neat trick with this one is that you cast it, it gets countered/terminated/bolted, goes to the graveyard, then you play a birds or a heirarch or whatever and it comes right back.
Obvious synergy with Bloodbraid Elf, Ranger of Eos and Momentous Fall. Opponent's EOT sack Vengevine, draw 4, get 3 life, your turn play the dudes you drew and get vengevine back.
Also he's awesome to discard to an early Blightning.
Kor Skyfisher can bounce himself so you can play him the second time on the same turn to get Vengevine back but I don't see that happening outside of casual.
I'm worried about the amount of exile removal in standard though. Once Alara rotates out life will be a lot easier for this guy.

Play Vengevine, attack, take something out and die, play another creature at 2nd main phase and he is back out.

Pretty sweet.
