So, this is another vertical growth card. Back when Gro was a thing, this kind of card got played. We still occasionally see Managorger Hydra see play today. Even so, in a world of 4x Mentor, I think it's safe to say that vertical growth really was not very relevant.
But, that world has ended.
Now that Mentor is finally Restricted, is it possible that we will see vertical growth return? If so, does saving one mana over Hydra and limiting the pump to your own non-creature spells have a place?
Honestly, I think no... Quiron Dryad seems to compare pretty well to this card, and Dryad hasn't been played in a million years. But, I'm interested to get the thoughts of people, particularly those who currently swing Managorger.
