General Comments

This dude is kinda like Eternal Witnesses big brother, except he’s a little dumber, since he can only return creatures. Oh yeah, he’s also a tree. Go figure. This card can eat most dudes under 4cmc, but at 6cmc, that’s not completely relevant.

If you compare it to other cards at 6cmc in other colours ; Sun Titan, Kokusho, Crater Hellion, et all, Deadwood Treefolk begins to look a little lackluster. Even in green, Rampaging Baloths and even Primeval Titan have a great effect when they hit the board. I think Deadwood Treefolk is one of those cards which is a perfectly fine card, and actually pretty good, but it’s sadly short of the mark for cube. I wouldn’t blame anyone for cubing with it, since it’s incredibly solid, but I’d be very hesitant to suggest cuts for people to put it in.

Verdict : 600 unpowered.
