Once per turn: You can excavate the top card of your Deck, and if it is a Plant-Type monster, send it to the Graveyard, and if you do, draw 1 card. Otherwise, place it on the bottom of your Deck. If this card is excavated from the Deck and sent to the Graveyard by a card effect: Look at up to 3 cards from the top of your Deck, then place them on the top of the Deck in any order.

  • Can excavate the top card of your deck once per turn.
  • Sending a card that you excavated to the grave lets you draw a card.
  • If Hermitree is excavated and sent to the graveyard, you can arrange the top 3 cards in your deck to set up for your other Sylvan plays.


  • Requires 2 tributes to tribute summon if you can't special summon.
  • 1800 defense can often be not enough to protect itself if it gets switched to defense.
  • Excavated non plant type monsters will get sent to the bottom of the deck.


Rose Lover

Since tribute summoning can be pretty slow, you can use Rose Lover effect to special summon Hermitree from your hand to your field, making him immune to traps for a turn. Rose Lover can be easily sent to the graveyard if you use Sylvan monsters to excavate and send to grave, or use World Carrotweight Champion's effect.


Komushroomo is really good for excavating and activating other Sylvan monsters' effects since you can excavate up to 5 cards. This can potentially send a Rose Lover, or some Komushroomo and some Marshalleafs to destroy your opponent's monster(s) and/or spells and traps. Alternatively, you can use Magical Merchant, but might not be effective if you have some spells and traps in your deck.

no, but I know you're not immune from laziness, since you clearly never bother to read Rose Lover's effect

...How did the Vagrant just summon this on his first turn (second in the match) WITHOUT playing/discarding another card?

One of his new challenges is being able to Summon high-levels without Tribute. (I believe it applies to both players, too.)
This card is glitched. Nor only the deck is OK, but card effects don't slow it down. My wall of disruption and Amazon onslaught had no effect on it. Anyone know why?
