Lifecraft Awakening
This is a good example of the sort of interaction I still find it odd to see in green, Titania's Song notwithstanding. It is solid enough as a late-game use for an early play (Prophetic Prism springs to mind as a target), but it does pose an interesting question about how early you can turn something into a large creature to get an advantage. If Sol Ring is legal in your format of choice, it would certainly help, but if you don't have anything to target other than the Ring itself, it wouldn't be that much faster than just casting a different creature that costs four mana or thereabouts. I can't help but feel that there is a casual deck out there somewhere that both wants and needs this card.
Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5

EDH/Commander: 4/5
James H. Lifecraft Awakening (1/11)
This spell isn't amazing, but it does three good things: it can pump an artifact creature, it can pump a Vehicle, or it can make you an artifact blocker/attacker in a pinch. In theory, you can also use it to blow up an artifact you control for G, but it's more likely going to be used in more conventional ways. It's the kind of spell that helps in Limited for keeping your engines going, and it can enable a massive blowout swing, but it’ll rarely be the star.
