Greenlife Dryad

I always thought nymphs were supposed to be hot? I mean, there are naiads, nymphs of of springs and wells, oreads, the nymphs of mountains, nereids, nymphs of the sea, oceanids, nymphs of whatever bodies of water weren't taken by naiads and nereids, and of course, the dryads, nymphs of the trees. All were supposed to be highly attractive... but I gotta tell you, I just ain't feeling it for this chick. Eh, if you're into that sort of thing, whatever.

As for the Dreamblade figure... she is kinda nifty. First off, her stats are not too shabby. 7P gets you 5 5|7, and like most of Passion, the power to cost ratio is excellant. Of course, she probably won't be sticking around for very long, because 5|7 really just isn't very long lasting in this game. I suppose it is possible your opponent may try to milk her effect along with you for a bit, but probably only until he can get something to cut her down. Most people aren't going to let a 5 power creature that can be hacked to pieces with a weed whacker stick around for much longer than they have to.

Of course, that extra 3 spawn points you get every turn (especially if you have say, a Heart Thief to really capitalize on the massive spawn you'll be getting with few Temples) will help considerably. Temple Good Stuff IS a band to contend with, and Mrs. Treant here could be the high priestess of pain.

Thing is, nobody uses her. I haven't seen a single T8 band in any of the 10ks use her. Maybe they're stuck in a cookie cutter mindset, maybe they are just stupid, but if Sam Black and Jon Siadek and what have you aren't playing it... you really need to look at why you are.

Underused piece or just a piece of filler? You decide.

Constructed: 2.5/5 Eh. If she gave me the 3 points and just gave my opponent one or two, sure, absolutely, but since it goes to both of us... nah.
Limited: 3/5 If nothing else, thwack some stuff, Orthanc style. If you don't know what that is, look it up.
