Two months ago, I made the statement "I regret not registering Arboreal Grazer for the Season One Invitational."
That was Standard.
Ten days ago, someone said to me, "I regret not registering Arboreal Grazer for Mythic Championship Hogaak."
That was Modern.
Little did they know, I was already weeks ahead of them.
Arboreal Grazer is actively good in Modern.
Wait, What the Heck?
As always, let me try to justify my wild statements. Even when I say things like "Segovian Angel is actively good in Draft," I really do have logic behind it, and Arboreal Grazer is much less of a reach. Or more, because it literally has reach.
Arboreal Grazer costs one mana to cast. That's a good sign. But what does it do uniquely well?
Arboreal Grazer costs one mana and ramps. That's a really good sign, but it isn't unique in doing that. Arboreal Grazer ramps in an indestructible way, unlike Llanowar Elves. But so does Utopia Sprawl. Arboreal Grazer ramps in a way that produces an actual tangible land, that doesn't require a Forest.
And multiple good Modern decks care about physical lands on the battlefield.
