Wow, is this really #30? Dang. Anyway, I've had green on the brain for no particular reason :plot: so I was hoping to get some feedback on a couple green cards.

Earthly Knowledge
Sorcery
Draw a card for every two lands you control.
-This would be fair at , but I thought it lead to more interesting decisions at .
-They say green card draw has to be tied in with creatures, but this makes more sense to me.

Dryad's Call
Sorcery
Tap each Dryad and Treefolk creature you control, then sacrifice each other creature you control.
For each creature you tapped or sacrificed this way, search your library for a Forest card and put it onto the battlefield tapped. Then shuffle your library.
-Eh, seemed interesting. Love to see this in a top-heavy token deck.

Elemental Outporing
Sorcery
Choose one:
  • Put X 1/1 green Plant creature tokens onto the battlefield.
  • Put an X/X green Elemental creature token onto the battlefield.
Purity - If you spent only one color of mana to cast this, do both instead.
-I'm a total sucker for X costs that scale in interesting ways.
-Seriously, does anybody else see a card like this and immediately chart out the different X values?
-This looks great on a chart. Fair value all the way..

Wydden Ysengurra
Planeswalker - Ysengurra
Untap target Forest. It becomes a 3/3 Treefolk creature with vigilance in addition to its other types until end of turn.
Target creature gets +X/+X until end of turn where X is the number of Forests you control.
You get an emblem with “Creatures you control get +1/+1 for each forest attached to them", and ": Attach a Forest you control to target creature you control. Activate this ability only any time you could cast a sorcery.’”.

  • Was 4 cards too many for an ICD?
  • Dude's name is stupid because he's a tree and also Welsh. Be glad there were vowels.

Is Elemental Outpouring an instant or sorcery?

Neither. It is a valuable misprint card. It should be a sorcery though.

Wydden's ult would probably be fine as "creatures you control get +1/+1 for each forest you control."

On Earthly Knowledge, you should specify rounded up or rounded down. I think with the cost you've given it, you can round up.
I also think Wydden's starting loyalty is too high. I'd give it 2 or 3.

I've reduced Wydden's starting loyalty and ult cost by one each.
I've also added that Outporing's tokens are green.

On Earthly Knowledge, you should specify rounded up or rounded down. ... I'd give it 2 or 3.

I was trying to make it only give cards for every second forest you had. Is there a clearer way to state that other than rounding?

I originally patterened the card off of Ysengrin from Gunnerkrigg Court, who can shape the trees of the forest into weapons and armour. I still think that turning land into pseudo equipment is an idea worth pursuing, but perhaps you're right and I should leave that for another card. Your suggestion works better with the + ability anyway.

There probably is, but WotC usually words cards like this as rounding.
