Ashaya, Soul of the Wild Discussion

Murphy77 on Gruul Landfall

I really like the idea. I just get the feeling that the most aggro landfall would be something like: Turn 1; Mountain and Akoum Hellhound, Turn 2; Land and Infuriate - swing with 5/5 in turn 2... With the landfall ramp that you get from Radha, Heart of Keld, you need at least 3 copies in your deck. I like the idea of Azusa, Lost but Seeking as a facilitator of multiple landfalls per turn, but a wide range of other creatures that do not have any landfall effects just seem to slow down your deck. Definitely, some instant power ramps are needed. I would keep in Cultivate. My list for this deck would be:

Main Deck

2 Phylath, World Sculptor,

2 Azusa, Lost but Seeking,

3 Radha, Heart of Keld,

4 Scute Swarm,

4 Brushfire Elemental,

4 Akoum Hellhound,

4 Kazandu Mammoth  Flip,

3 Cultivate,

3 Infuriate,

3 Unleash Fury,

3 Fire Prophecy,

3 Rugged Highlands,

3 Fabled Passage,

3 Evolving Wilds,

9 Forest,

7 Mountain.

Side Board

2 Ashaya, Soul of the Wild,

3 Thundering Rebuke,

3 Heroic Intervention,

3 Ranger's Guile,

4 Shadowspear (works in just about any deck).

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on [[Primer v3.5]] - OM_RATH!!! (M21 Update!!!)

Hi there. This is an awesome primer by the way. It's a shame I am only stumbling across it now. I am a little late to this Zendikar Rising discussion, but I had some thoughts after seeing what was said here and playing with a few of the cards.

I am Curious to see why no MDFC's are included? They are legit strong. Valakut Awakening  Flip and Bala Ged Recovery  Flip have been absolutely fantastic for me.

Valakut Exploration and Ancient Greenwarden have both performed pretty well for me as well. They both provide excellent additional value and Scapeshifting into an active Valakut Exploration is just amazing.

Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is interesting. Some games it is game winning strong, others it is kind of medium.

Nahiri's Lithoforming seems great in theory...but I've been pretty disappointed with it the few times I've cast it. That's a bummer because I was pretty high on the card when it was spoiled.

Lastly, I am surprised to not see Nissa, Vital Force or Field of the Dead in here. Nissa is bonkers when she ults, which I find happens more often than not. Even if you can't protect her, the Regrowth effect is pretty nice. Field of the Dead is just free real-estate (pun intended) that builds up an army quickly.

Ashaya, Soul of the Wild could prove useful, and if you do you could replace dorks with 'untap land' effects so they double to create available blockers. Also Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx could be good with said land untappers too. There's also Bane of Progress and or Terastodon for removal options, also Apex Altisaur is another.

These are some adjustments I want to try out:

Feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I just got the notification I got tagged. Sorry for the late reply. I've absolutely loved Ashaya, Soul of the Wild in my selvala deck. I think that's definitely a way to go but if tharasios wasn't the commander Beast Whisperer and Glimpse of Nature are insanely good.

rkjunior, Mox Diamond would be the best choice. Also, I’m actually thinking about adding Strip Mine, finally, since I removed both Armageddon and Ravages of War. I still want some way to remove lands. I personally like Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, but it is a flex card for me and can be replaced with something better down the road. So I feel you’ll be fine without it.

Arzais, I too have a Niv-Mizzet, Parun deck I face regularly. Things I would consider to add to help would be Drannith Magistrate, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Narset, Parter of Veils, Oko, Thief of Crowns, Teferi, Time Raveler, Teferi, Master of Time, Kenrith's Transformation and Darksteel Mutation. I’ve had huge success in shutting down Niv with such cards in the past. Hopefully you find it helpful.

Starsky2814 - I'd probably go with Mox Diamond if I go that route. I may try to find a spot for Retreat, though. I actually cut Ashaya, Soul of the Wild to put Parcelbeast back in but I still have a flex spot or two. I'm running 1 extra land (really like the Strip Mine and Wasteland synergy)... So many decisions!

Cariddis on Kamahl, Fist of Krosa EDH

DecadeFire thank you for the advice!

About swapping Terastodon for Ancient Greenwarden, I am a little doubtful: the latter does a Panharmonicon effect that I don't see particularly relevant in Kamahl. The former, on the other hand, it's a green multiple removal tool that can deal with problematic cards, like stax pieces or damage-preventing tools like Glacial Chasm

Scute Swarm seems very powerful in a pure-aggro style of commander. I suppose this strategy could be viable depending on the meta. I usually play against midrange/combo decks, therefore I don't actually need another tool to further push the aggro plan.

I am about to write another update related to Zendikar Rising cards, and I can give a spoiler here: it will need some other 20+ games to be confirmed, but it is highly likely that I will add Ashaya, Soul of the Wild to the 99. With Kamahl in play, you can go infinite with Quirion Ranger / Scryb Ranger and an animated Gaea's Cradle. This is so cool and broken that some times it didn't even feel fair lol. Like always, I do not make change until I played at least 100 games, therefore I will let you know soon :)
