Walker of the Grove

I'm impressed that the Elementals seem to have gotten so many interesting cards in Lorwyn and Morningtide. Walker of the Grove is effectively a modal creature spell, which is quite rare outside of weird, awkward cases like Krakilin or Primal Clay. And it's excellent with Pandemonium.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5

#1 Magic Noob in Canada since 2002
Walker of the Grove

I think the best use for this is to get it out with Incandescent Soulstroke then proceed to swing for 7 damage while getting a 4/4 out of it. But it's a bad thing how Incandescent Soulstroke is so fragile for its cost and so this card's use in constructed will be very low.

In casual, it's a decent elemental to use, so use it if you can find a way.

In limited, it's a 4/4 for 5 mana in mid game, which isn't bad, and a 7/7 for 8 mana in the late game. It probably won't die so you'll never get the 4/4 out of it though. In all likelihood it'll be blocked by a regenerator or get hit by a Lignify.

Constructed: 1.5/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 3/5
v0rac10u5 Walker of the Grove

In constructed, green has many better options than this. However, this has some combo potential with Cream of the Crop and Enduring Renewal. With the Crop, you get to look through seven cards for the Walker and another four cards for the token. With the Renewal, you can make an endless supply of tokens. In limited, this can easily make the cut.

- Constructed: 1
- Casual: 3
- Limited: 3
