Ah...Verdant Force. What can you say? It's a current Extended format favorite in Reanimator type decks. In fact, it's become so popular, that we are having a difficult time keeping it in stock at our Website. People LIKE winning (go figure...).  If your opponent does not have a quick answer to an early, token producing 7/7 fat-arse, you win. End of story, thank you for playing, buh bye now. In fact, you know that roaring sound that the mtgo game makes when a creature comes into play?  I think you should be required to make it in real life as part of the cost of playing it.

In limited, you play this fattie if you're going green with any significance. Verdant Force wins games if it hits the board and sticks.

Constructed: 4
Limited: 4

Verdant Force
This king in the land of fatties ranks very high in the "creatures I like to put into play without actually casting him" category,  seeing play in both secret force,  reanimator,  and living death decks.  He has built in edict protection,  and even though he doesn't trample,  his little buddies create a facsimile trample effect,  or just stay back to chump while daddy sends.  All that said,  he is expensive,  and he needs assistance being put into play to be good.  In limited he'll win games even if you have to hard cast him.

Constructed 3.25
Limited 3.75


Verdant Force

Tempest, my favorite, Came out just after I started. This happens to be only good in reanimator, IMO. Getting the 8 to cast it is hard in any other deck, plus this guy pulls out more creatures each turn. Reanimator, rules, Useless in most others

Limited..Big Body, Makes more little bodies, play it!
