I suspect this card will mostly be seen as a highly variant Tarmogoyf (low-cost, long-game or high-impact creature). That's a good use for it, especially since lands tend to get destroyed less frequently than graveyards get tampered with in the modern era. Beyond that, most land creatures don't need too much help, and in situations where they could use a power and toughness boost the Advocate itself is probably going to be just as vulnerable to the opponent. I'd still consider it in casual settings for the uniqueness, not to mention the overkill factor when combined with Liege of the Tangle!
