@brass-man I think it's a one-sided CotV that hurts a lot of decks turn 1. Building a 4 Lavinia deck that tries to maximize the times it comes into play turn 1 is very viable (using even Petal, for example). Also, even in mid-late game, having Survival not able to chain Rootwallas and Hollow Ones is great. Although Vengevines still come into play if you cycle one Rootwalla into a Hollow One (even with Lavinia into play).
Against Shops, as I said, it's situational at best. If you're on the play having Lavinia turn 1 is great because it acts as a CotV on 0 AND stops turn 1 Spheres, which gives you a turn 2 free of disruption. Against Dredge it's the worst, since it only stops Dread Return, but we all know maindecks are not meant to beat Dredge anyway, so whatever.
@moorebrother1 why do you think it's even good in Legacy? What does this stop that makes you want to play it, even as a SB card?
