Modified creatures you control have trample.

Whenever a modified creature you control deals combat damage to a player, search your library for a basic land card, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle.

Kodama has taken on many forms since its introduction in Champions of Kamigawa eighteen years ago, with the latest version closing out the north-south-east-west directional cycle.

A three-mana 3/3 with reach, Kodama of the West Tree isn’t overwhelmingly powerful by itself, but paired with modified creatures, the value builds quickly. In decks capable of modifying cheap, early-game threats, casting Kodama of the West Tree and landing an attack or two can net huge value in the form of extra lands. Plus, being that Kodama is a legendary creature, it could make for an interesting commander in a deck focusing on Auras, Equipment, or +1/+1 counters.
