This is pretty useful!  More so than Captain's Call almost every time.

I assume you're referring to limited?  Because in Constructed, the kind of deck that would want to run a token generator tends not to have a 3+ power creature (barring sometimes Geist-Honored Monk)

Cats land on their feet. Toast lands peanut butter side down. A cat with toast strapped to its back will hover above the ground in a state of quantum indecision.

Hm, this would double GHM's power just like that
Winmore, but at least its uncommon.

Strong in limited bad in constructed.

I could see this being useful in a token based edh deck. Strong kitchen table card to be sure.
I can see uses for it

I just love how the Saprolings look.

Quite good in limited. Probably useless everywhere else.

I was thinking of limited, but in a mono-green constructed deck, surely you will have a fatty out.  I could see this getting play.  Paired Wolfir Silverheart for 8 1/1s?

IMO, if you are playing green and a 3/3 is as big as you can go--you're doin' it wrong.
Or if you're already going that route, and not that this would be that great, but t3 Dungrove Elder, t4 this for 4 saprolings, t5 Overrun and swing for 24 trample.
This card seems alright.
Probably has some competitive Constructed uses.  Definitely plenty of casual Constructed uses.
Loving it. The green token maker in me is so damn happy right now.
Above the curve with a 4-power critter in play, which is not that hard to accomplish.  Good for limited.
Thinking of playing this with cathars' crusade. 4 power creature plus this equals blessings of nature on all your creatures.
Wish it was common for my pauper Bloodthrone Vampire deck. That's gonna be my favorite use for it any way you slice it up: play creature that eats tokens, play token maker, eat tokens, play this, eat more, NOM NOM NOM WIN.
Wow. This + Thromok the Insatiable seems really fun.

Play thrammy, sac 5 guys.
Play Fungal Sprouting.
Fling thrammy.
Play thrammy, sac 25 guys.
I really like this card. :G::U: Talrand Token deck maybe? By the way I love the new Saproling look!

Then Garruk, Primal Hunter draw 625 cards!!!
Can't see this being used competitively. It's just an unreliable Increasing Devotion at best.

Can totally see this being used casually. It's like giving your 60/60 Hamletback Goliath trample and a way to split up damage between opponents.
Guru flavor text, and not too shabby in guru edh deck either
Favorite Green Card in M13. The forest is going to eat you alive.

Straight into the Ghave Commander deck.  The flavor text seems to agree with me.
Rancor's new best friend in Limited.
If Limited gets in the way of printing good Constructed cards... Screw limited
saying this card name out loud makes me feel like i just threw up in my mouth
Cool card. I'd dig if it were instant speed. Still fun with Essence of the Wild

Don't like how it doesn't play catchup.

you mean, count your opponent's creatures?

But for a guru, he's middling.
Mossbridge Troll?


So... tap 10 power worth of creatures to make Mossbridge Troll a 25/25, create 25 1/1s, then tap 20 of them to bump Mossbridge Troll up to a 65/65?

Another card this could work well with is Hamletback Goliath. Again, it works in both directions: Hamletback Goliath gives you a big creature to spawn lots of Saprolings, and spawning lots of Saprolings makes Hamletback Goliath bigger.
