I actually like the 3/3 but only in Legacy where I could build a really shitty, janky, old-school Mono-Green Stompy deck with Rogue Elephants, Mtenda Lion, Jungle Lion, Invigorate, Berserk, and so on.

Just play 9 lands, Land Grant, and Elvish Spirit Guide to dump my entire hand on the table turn 1 and start smacking things. Giving your opponent extra lands isn't really going to matter if you go Invigorate -> Berserk -> Berserk on your 3/3!

Whilst it's not a very good card, it certainly is a lion: Guardian Lions. Also, Jamuraan Lion could actually offer some tactical advantage. An early beater could be Jungle Lion. Marisi's Twinclaws looks good and oacks some power. If your opponent doesn't play blue Mtenda Lion pscks a punch (sidenote: quite a few cheap green critters that psck a pinch for a small drawback. I'm seeing potential for a green deck that plays as a red deck). Nylea's Emissary is rediculously majestic. Pride of Lions has lion in the name, and the possibility of being a game-ender. Spirit of the Hearth might be manaheavy, but damn!

That's it for creatures from me. I'll get back to you on noncreatures
