Part of my Eventide exploration, here is my review of selected black/green hybrid cards, found on the full visual spoiler.
There are so many great cards in this group I can barely choose 5 to fit this post. I was also very excited about black/green before the prerelease so now that we can see the full set you can see where my attention has shifted.
This is by far the best liege in Eventide. Dropping 3/3 guys every turn is a huge game changing situation. Of course this guy is really vulnerable to a lot of removal. I still think black green themed decks are great with these guys and one could always use the enchantments to pump this guy.
I really like this card because it is a great mid game card. It gives card advantage as well as getting back a creature. Also look at that artwork wouldn’t you poop your pants if you had dream where that guy was walking out of a swamp at you. Ya you would.
Three things I like about this card: art, name, and cycle. I really like these come into play guys that are small and get bigger. I think they are good for the casting cost as they can become a force. I’ve always like the word noxious; when I was in college I created a fake magazine called Noxious Opus so this kind of makes me reminisce. By now you know I love great artwork and this card is no slouch.
I’m looking forward to adding this to my Blowfly Infestation deck. This guy gets big but is really really weak for three mana out of the gate.

Hello Treefolk. I’m thinking about running a 70 card treefolk deck, you know just for fun. I do wish that this guy was a little bigger like maybe a 3/5, especially, because, well no reason really he just should be bigger. He hits like a kithkin but stands tall like a Doran.
