Creakwood Liege
I think this guy has always suffered a little in assessments, but only because people don't always associate black-green decks with having lots of creatures. We sometimes expect those colors to adopt a more attrition-based Rock-style strategy; while such strategies do sometimes benefit from repeatable creature generation, they have historically turned to other sources to get it. Still, it's worth remembering that Thallids are (in the Modern card pool at least) centered in green and black, and that there's no shame in including this card in an appropriate mono-colored deck that uses a suitable strategy.

Today's card of the day is Creakwood Liege which is a four mana Black or Green 2/2 that gives other Black and other Green creatures +1/+1 each and at the beginning of your upkeep you put a 1/1 Black/Green token into play.  While somewhat weak by itself the production of tokens at 3/3 and working extremely well with multiple copies makes this a strong supporter in a dedicated Green/Black build.   There's little reason not to run this in a Golgari build as being a lord with potential +2/+2 to offer and adding tokens is quite a bit of value at four mana.

Creakwood Liege
One of the infamous hybrid lords from Lor/moor block, a +1/+1 boost to mono colored creatures is good, a +2/+2 to multicolored creatures is huge, plus creating creatures that are essentially 3/3's each upkeep is pretty great too. Sure, it dies to lightning bolt, but if you're playing multiples (and this is one of those cards you play a set of or none of), it can easily get out of burn range. All around, for aggressive decks, it's pretty great.
