General Comments

Dendrologist is not going to win any awards on the back of its 2 Mana 2/3 body, but the average power level of Druid spells makes it an incredibly tempting card in any Treant-themed deck. With access to cards like Ultimate Infestation, Nourish, and Branching Paths, the chances that Dendrologist discovers a powerful spell is quite high. However, it will never be able to trigger its ability on Turn 2, as there is currently no way to make a Treant for 1 Mana.

2.

Constructed Play

A lack of playable Treant cards bodes poorly for Dendrologist's playability in constructed. The earliest you can trigger his Battlecry in constructed is after playing a Landscaping, which means he will be nothing better than a River Crocolisk on turn 2. Though the ability to discover one of Druid's many powerful spells is quite tempting, aggressive Treant decks will likely want to play something a bit more proactive on turn 2.

3.

Arena

It will be incredibly difficult to trigger Dendrologist's Battlecry in the Arena, but many Arena will be happy to run a River Crocolisk. If you need a playable 2 drop, you can do a lot worse than Dendrologist.
