Argothian Elder Discussion

Inkmoth on Ashaya, Combo-Queen of the Wild

Careful with Glimpse of Nature I can actually kill you while going infinite. Like the list! Have you considered Ley Weaver or Argothian Elder?

Argothian Elder This feels too awkward for mana fixing and I can't remember why it's there.

Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen This is one of two sources of lifegain, a lord, and... maybe not good enough?

Elvish Harbinger I'm not sure I need this many tutors, and it works poorly with poacher. Oth, tutor all color manadork ain't bad.

Elvish Visionary I'm guessing there's better versions at higher cmc now, but I may still want this one.

Izoni, Thousand-Eyed I really just want to play her a time or three and see if she works. She's very mana hungry all around though.

Reveille Squad This may just be win-more, and has to be telegraphed before attackers are declared

Timberwatch Elf Imaculate magistrate is a better version of this card, but having both has made the difference before

Wirewood Channeler This is the worst version of this effect I have, but does tap for any color.

Aura Shards This card is gross bonkers... BUUUUTTTT i only have so many, and this may be the deck that needs it LEAST?

Selesnya Signet This and sol ring are my only mana rocks... if I'm running no others, I probably don't need this one.

Reito Lantern If it's unclear, this is graveyard hate and ETB self tuck. It's... it's cute. I don't know if it's good. But it may be cute enough to keep.

Btw, Magus of the Candelabra, and Big Mana Dork/Cradle/Shrine to Nyx all go infinite with Ashaya. At 1 CMC, I think this makes it better than Ley Weaver and Argothian Elder.

SynergyBuild on Ashaya is REAALLLLLY good

Btw, thx for letting me know Nevinyrral's Disk doesn't work like that, but:

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard now can get Quirion Ranger or Scryb Ranger and Priest of Titania or Elvish Archdruid or Beast Whisperer and Ashaya, Soul of the Wild (or a line with Argothian Elder/Ley Weaver for one of the easiest combo lines ever.

This means ashaya at least adds 4 different 2-card combos, and 3 of them go immediately infinite, another closer to Isochron Scepter/Dramatic Reversal that needs some mana.

With that, one-sided sweepers, etc. I'd argue this card is better than Craterhoof Behemoth in green cEDH lists and Casual lists alike, being a wincon through damage, ramp, protection, and tons of combos.

Busted.

Argothian Elder or Ley Weaver are probably the easiest infinite mana combos

Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is better than you think. I promise you, it's better.

You think a 5 mana creature variant of mono-green Cryptolith Rite that is massive is all? Nope.

First off it's bigger than massive, like, a lot bigger. It is monstrous in many decks. Ever seen a lot of lands and creatures out? I see a 40/40 Ashaya. I wonder if Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Soul's Majesty, Rishkar's Expertise, Traverse the Outlands, or Overwhelming Stampede would be good?

But even in a deck where it isn't that big, Ashaya is REAALLLLLLY good.

Worried about Cyclonic Rift, not on your creatures! Grasp of Fate, Abrupt Decay, Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Oblivion Ring, etc. all are useless against it.

Not to mention... combos. Oh yeah, so... Quirion Ranger is an interesting card. It lets you bounce a forest to untap a creature.

Idk, what can a creature that's untapped do with Ashaya, Soul of the Wild? Oh, tap for mana. I wonder what's a forest that we can bounce? Oh, Quirion Ranger.

Yep, just those two go infinite together, only infinite casts, as you net even, but a Glimpse of Nature, Beast Whisperer, Primordial Sage, or Soul of the Harvest and you'll be just fine. Remember, it's a land that keeps entering, landfall infinitely, with a Lotus Cobra, Tireless Tracker, or similar, and you'll be well on your way to an easy win.

Have a Priest of Titania? Now you have infinite mana.

(Scryb Ranger can do similarly, another super easy combo)

Arbor Elf... yep, infinite untaps of itself, one Krosan Restorer and a medium graveyard, one Ley Weaver, or one Argothian Elder and you have infinite untaps and mana.

Of course, there is more, Nissa, Who Shakes the World, Timber Protector, etc.

Also, remember you can run Oblivion Stone, and all the rest too.

That's a lot of damage. Not to mention:

  1. This card can be both a powerful commander or mana ramp/combo engine in decks.

  2. Nissa, Who Shakes the World, Nissa, Worldwaker, etc. affect forests, and this is easily one of the best ways to get a ton of forests.

  3. Titania, Steward of Argoth and other lands -> creatures style effects (think Rampaging Baloth) allow you to get a to get a ton of value from your creatures, reusing them for 4/4s and 5/3s.

  4. Liege of the Tangle. Easy, clean reason why this card is hilariously fun!

  5. Howl of the Night Pack, Boundless Realms, etc. There are a million of these combos, literally go look. I'm not even trying.

  6. You can Leyline of Abundance for more value too, didn't mention that. Was gonna click start a new thread and just thought of it. Gonna click it now before I think of ten more!

Profet93: oh fuck, I knew I forgot to address something.

As for the Nylea's Intervention I'm still on the fence about that one as I definitely prefer paying 2 mana rather than three. I'll get back to you on that one.

I'm currently wracking my brain over: Argothian Elder and Scryb Ranger.

Quite thrilled we got a bolt land, that you guys can assume is going right in as it doesn't take up a slot and a 7 Mana hail mary is better than a land in a pinch. (Turntimber Symbiosis)

I made some changes. I added Wirewood Lodge and Argothian Elder for another mana combo. I swapped Elvish Visionary for Llanowar Visionary. I also added Leyline of Abundance and Hurricane
