Sapling of Colfenor the eternal must protect the wood. Sapling of Colfenor do not know about good or evil. Sapling of Colfenor know only about what is usefull for his wood and what is not. Sapling of Colfenor do not care about who's helping his wood to prosper, but he will take care of those who dont. Sapling of Colfenor has been hanging around here from a while. Sapling of Colfenor understand the sacrifice that are required to keep is wood strong and alive. Sapling of Colfenor is the guardian of the wood. Sapling of Colfenor is the guardian of the circle of life. Sapling of Colfenor got root ;).

Sapling of Colfenor seen to be the perfect for an only creature deck and the drawing ability is just awesome if you pack the deck with creature who have bigger toughness than power. Plus, Sapling of Colfenor is indestructible and he can be cast for only 5 "colorless" mana, making him a very reliable engine igniter. It's also a noticeable fact that a swing of Sapling generate between 1 and 3 triggers (draw if you top deck a land. Gain life, lose life and draw if you top deck a creature. Gain life and draw if you top deck a creature with 0 power). On top of that, Sapling of Colfenor is black and green. The Golgari theme are well suit for a "circle of life" theme.

Just Imagine a turn:

Draw, Swing with Sapling of Colfenor, top deck Tree of Perdition gain 13 life, draw tree of perdition, cast tree of perdition.

What if we can find more way to gain more life, or take advantage of the trigger, or playing more card each turn, or having more control over what you you will top deck next swing or 42 things you can do in zero gravity with Sapling of Colfenor? Well if you wander to know, this is exacly what are about the next section.
