Grove of the Guardian
Land (R)
: Add to your mana pool.
, , Tap two untapped creatures you control, Sacrifice Grove of the Guardian: Put an 8/8 green and white Elemental creature token with vigilance onto the battlefield.

I guess I could Populate that.

That's pretty good.  Doesn't come into play tapped, doesn't make colored mana, but can make a fatty.  Could be a late game winner out of a land.
This is decent, I suppose. 
Pretty decent, hopefully there will be poulate cards that make this playable in constructed.
hmm, tapping creatures is going to be a massive achilles heel for this card, but 5 mana for an 8/8 vigilance is still a very good deal.
That's a high cost, but it's also a huge guy, and an awesome populate target.

SwDS: 4.5/5

It's no Svogthos, but it's still pretty cool. Populate will be all over its token.

CURRENT EDH DECKS: Sek'kuar | Kraj | Teysa | Wort | Purphoros | Varolz | Reaper King | Rakdos | Isperia | Ultimus | Iroas | Macar | Roon | Marath | Kruphix | Karametra | Marchesa

It's like it has a built-in, mandatory Convoke.  Sort of.
I'd love to see Parallel Lives become a deck.
Hm, just realized... the fact that this only makes colorless mana might make it hard to run in such a multicolor-focused format.

Makin duderguys. Alright
Meant for populate, I'm sure.
Seems playable to me.
Seems bad to me outside of limited.

So this is the prerelease promo....
Requiring creatures means that:
1:  this will be good in aggro
2:  but not after they wipe the board.


Number 2 is a pretty big problem.  That's the main reason you want manlands in aggro is to survive board wipes.
Although if there are enough instant token makers, it could be good with the right support.  Something like Midnight Haunting after a board wipe leading into this could work.
This will most definitely see play. It doesn't come into play tapped, it produces mana, and it's ability nothing short of game-winning. Going from 2-power to 10 power sounds ok to me. Sure, your opponent might have instant-speed removal to set you back on tempo, but such is the case with any manland.
I hope the Guildhall cycle still exists.

Awesome card, though.

I expect it will, we've seen art of all the Guildhalls and they've been putting quite a bit of info out about the Guildhalls.

Uncommon utility land cycle is what I'm hoping for for the Guildhalls. To go between the common Gates and the Rare Shocks... They'll probably be Rare though. 
Pretty cool card. Do i even need to say Populate?

I like how Selesnya this time around goes with a larger variety of tokens rather then just vanilla saprolings to accomodate the new mechanic.
I like this card as the choice for the Selesnya pre-release promo.  Gives you something big to populate. :D  Will be very fun to play w/ ramp and token makers.

Hopefully there aren't too many sweepers in limited.
Really like this one, don't know if it will be good at the prerelase though.

I like when my manlands are good after all my creatures are dead.
This is actually one of the main cards I'm looking forward to so far. Not sure how good it's going to be competitivly, but it seems like it'll be a ton of fun to play.

Also, the Guardian in the picture looks really cool. I'm hoping his token card will give us a better look at him up and active.
Now i'm anxious to see the actual tokens spoiled!   
Oh wow, makes your bad creature draws post day much better.

Kind of a meh card, not too happy about it, not really dissapointed either. Guess I will just have to wait and see how it plays. Probably a solid thing for draft though.

Works well enough with doubling season I suppose.

SWDS: 3/5
Khyber is a dark and dangerous place, full of flame and smoke, where ever stranger things lie dormant.
I guess I could Populate that.



SwDS: 4/5

Clever deduction Watson! Maybe you can explain why Supergirl is trying to kill me.

i don't know about it. seems sorta expensive, but with the many token generators out there, i think it could be doable

but the price seems hefty especially in a dualcolor deck.
