Warden of the First Tree is a Green Creature with activated abilities that require either White or Black mana. You can still play those abilities in a single colored Green Deck if you have a Pulse of Llanowar and/or dual lands (Savannah or Bayou) available. These activated abilities are what makes this Warden a formidable creature and not having the White or Black mana to use them pretty much defeats the purpose of having this guy in your deck:
- For 2 mana (1 of which must be Black or White), the Warden becomes a 3/3 Human Warrior.
- If the Warden is currently a Warrior, then for 4 mana (2 of which must be Black or White) it becomes a Human Spirit Warrior with Trample and Lifelink.
- If the Warden is currently a Spirit, then for 6 mana (3 of which must be Black or White) it gains 5 +1/+1 counters which makes it 8/8 now by default. (If you have a Doubling Season, also a green card, you can double those counters making it 13/13 with trample!)

Although this is not a gold creature, it can be a bit tricky to use at its fullest potential if you don’t have the right mana. You’ll probably want to have it in your multicolored decks with Green and either Black and/or White as the main colors.
