Fuck Sylvan. It wouldn't be a as annoying if one, people who got KoG with it new the deck did it not them, two didn't have undesserved sense of pride and three we had necrovally or dimensional fissure or cemetery bomb.
I hate sylvan, too. (Not the people who play them). I can win once in a while against them, but when the mushroom excavation gets enough leaf to kill all three of my monsters and they have a rose lover to negate my trap, it is over. I'd rather use Amarylease for Aromages.
Or even worse: I negate the mushroom on the first turn with divine wrath and think, "Yes! I can get the lead now!", only to get...another mushroom the very next turn to complete the process I just mentioned above. But it is so fun when I do win. XD
1. Sylvan loses their normal summon to summon Guardioak
2. Hermitree still requires 1 tribute
3. The summoned Plant-type monster is not immune to traps. A well-timed Floodgate will be a major issue for them. Not to mention if they fail to excavate Komushroomo, Wall of Disruption can be an issue as well.
Sometimes three roselovers (or amarylease) just leads to me bricking if I don't have the big monsters in hand, so sometimes jasmine is safer for bergamot if I can get her summon effect going fast or play it risky, leave jasmine faceup and draw with the garden and hope I get something good.
