Forest's Vim is a mass-heal-repair arcane card which effectively turns an entire root network into a Tank as long as the spell lasts. Specifically meant for both units and towers linked into a root network, it generally is cast in the heat of combat when entities joined into the network start to incur damage. Cast upon one member of a root network, it will mass-heal all other units/towers that are linked to that same network.
Ideally the tainted version (purple) of Forest's Vim should be cast upon a second-line defender with a powerful long-ranged attack that is not itself in immediate danger, so the extra damage buff can be used to full advantage. When two such units are employed, the spell can be alternatively cast on the one and then the other so as to heal the rest of the network and each other as well in a continuous heal cycle.
Also worthy of note is the Arcane nature of the spell, which allows it to be cast on any visible friendly entity connected to a root network, regardless of the proximity of an own ground unit. Thus it can be used as a long range support card if an ally's root network comes under attack.
The buffs gained from Root Nexus also apply to any damage incurred by the spell's recipient, thus a gifted Root Nexus (green) makes an especially useful combo with the tainted version of the Forest's Vim spell.
