Wolfbriar Elemental
I'm sure Zvi Mowshowitz and "his" Fires of Yavimaya would have loved to play with Wolfbriar Elemental ten years ago. It makes up the numbers against decks with lots of cheap creatures, it races nearly anything, and it gets along great with Essence Warden. Time passes and Standard changes, but one thing remains the same: Nature is very, very good at stomping things.
Constructed: 4/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5
Multiplayer: 4/5

Michael "Maikeruu" Pierno Today's card of the day is Wolfbriar Elemental which is average as a 4/4 for four mana, but when using the Multikicker effect will provide a very nice topdeck later in the game for a mana ramping Green deck.
For Constructed, Casual, and Multiplayer this is a very good addition to a wolf pack themed deck with the various support cards available.  The deck would generally be all Green, or in older formats perhaps Green/White and there is little reason not to include several copies of this as a middle to late game bomb.
In Limited tokens tend to win games and this is no exception as the potential field advantage and efficiency of time and mana are top of the line.  Absolutely a first pick in Booster followed by heavily drafting Green and a variety of mana acceleration options.  In Sealed the very intensive focus on a single color of mana is difficult to work with, but a primarily Green deck should still be able to play this with one or two tokens most of the time.
Constructed: 4.0
Casual: 4.0
Limited: 4.5
Multiplayer: 4.0
