The problem with defining this format by what is "fun" is that everyone seems to define fun as what they don't lose to. If you keep losing to easily answered cards, that means you should improve your deck. If you don't want to improve your deck, then you should come to peace with the idea that you are going to lose because you chose to not interact with better strategies.
this card is just bad, waaaaay to clunky.
to have a chance it would need to tutor onto battlefield, but then it would probably be kinda broken.
I don't think it would be broken even tutoring to BF. Pod was really good, but its activation costs just 1. You can pay 4 lives and 4 manas to play it and sac in the same turn. With this, you must pay 5 (2 of them Green) and you must WAIT some turns for counters, so if you did not played it first or second turn, it will be useless. Even if you did, you should pay 5 to get a 3 mana creature in 4th turn, 9 to play that creature and a 4 mana creature and so. Too expensive. Pod excels because of its cheap activation, allowing you to play control with your lands.
So, if this is bad even into BF, like it is now is unplayable in any deck. Worst card in the set, even counting commons.
