Are Seedling Pods plant creatures?

1 armor and 8 life seems kind of low for a spawnpoint.

I do like cantrip stuff though!  Saves spell book points.

Add Treebond into the mix and the stats move to Life=12 Armor=2 and Lifebond+2. Not Shabby at all.

1 armor, 8 health and flame +2?  That's...not great.  If you Treebond with it it's ok but still pretty fragile which makes it pretty risky to Treebond with since it will already be a target due to being a spawnpoint.  If you Treebond it, it will have two bullseye's  on it instead of one so don't expect it to live long.  Losing two valuable resources in one blow is a great way to lose a game... 

At least it's cheap.  Hopefully these seed pod things will be cool.

If I were betting, I might guess that Seedling Pod is a range 0-2 Incantation that places Vines.

If that's the case, I can see some dangerous uses for it immediately.

All of the Tree Conjurations that we have seen are 8 Health and Flame +2. I agree that is innately a bit  vulnerable to the Flame school but if you wish to Treebond and given what we have seen so far this seems to be the range of abilities that the Tree Subtype comes in at.

I really love the little details in the art of this card- The art is SO amazing in this game- this set is no exception.

A bit vulnerable to fire damage seems the understatement of the year. When nearly every conjuration or creature she has is +2 fire damage, combined with hydro immunity, it feels like the lash of fire or a few fire spells will cut through the forest like butter with few options for reducing burns. I'm sure it's been well play tested, but am interested in how the balance is introduced.

We might finally have a use for Firestorm, though Ring of Fire is still plenty scary.

While true, the 6 book points for Dissolve for 6 Dissolves will go a long way on the LoH. with Lifebond being able to take off some of the damage to mage who can heal and then the Regenerate 2 on the Tree makes it a bit tougher than I initially estimated. Yes you are going to have to pay a lot attention to Flame attacks and make sure you have something on hand to get rid of the Burns or your tree will quickly go up in smoke..

Good thing Druid is trained in Water school magic to put out those fires!  ;)

They have Hydro immunity as a trait, therefore no way to target them to get the extinguish effect from Hydro.

Yeah its that point that seems harder than expected, fire vulnerability and hydro immunity reduces the approaches for putting out the fires.  seems a double whammy.

hmm good point, sorry didn't think of that.

You would think if hydro immune a water spell would just not do damage but give the extinguish benefit.

Water should just wash over it and put out the fire.

So umm ya vulnerable to fire and immune to water that can help it put out the fire.  That is a bad combo.
