Creature — Beast
Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, Baloth Woodcrasher gets +4/+4 and gains trample until end of turn.
Baloth Woodcrasher Discussion
2 months ago
cute idea but i think people will get wise to this after a game or 2 and enchantment removal/ Pithing Needle will shut you down.
I'd suggest implementing a Landfall theme to help support a heavy land count:
Grazing Gladehart , Undergrowth Champion , Lotus Cobra , Embodiment of Insight , Baloth Woodcrasher , Avenger of Zendikar , Murasa Ranger , Oran-Rief Hydra , Turntimber Basilisk , Jaddi Offshoot , Territorial Baloth , Snapping Gnarlid , Snapping Creeper , Scythe Leopard , Rampaging Baloths

Welcome to MTG! Great deck name, btw.
- replace Acidic Slime with Thrashing Brontodon
- replace Avenger of Zendikar with Carnage Tyrant
- replace Baloth Woodcrasher with Rampaging Baloths

While The Mending of Dominaria sounds really good I feel like its just going to get removed before it gets its second lore counter. I will still try it out though, I will probably cut Greenwarden of Murasa .
I like Baloth Woodcrasher more than Undergrowth Champion just because Baloth gets trample and it tends to just be a wincon when I get 10+ landfalls in a turn (which happens a lot). I just don't want Undergrowth to get chumped over and over.
I was thinking about running some manlands but I don't like that they enter tapped. I usually avoid that condition if I can. But I will definitely think about it.

You may want The Mending of Dominaria in this deck. It allows you to recycle your cards and is a great way to get the lands out.

If you are looking for cuts I have a few suggestions: For the cost I think Baloth Woodcrasher can probably come out. I don't see a lot of way to recur your cards so Dreamscape Artist seems like it can go; especially in green there are other cards to get you lands (e.g. Cultivate ). Polyraptor looks off theme because you aren't really damaging your own creatures. Fleet Swallower appears to be your only mill card, I'd take it out. You have several "no hand size" cards, Spellbook can probably go as it does nothing else. Tromokratis seems out of place in this deck as you don't have a way for it to Lure . Omniscience is a great card and all, but because you have a lot of ramp you probably don't need it.
You may want to find some space for The Mending of Dominaria . It stops you from self mill due to all the cards you draw, and it allows you to get a lot of lands into play at one time when it goes off.
Harrow is also great.

@slusken Thank you very much for your reply! I'm grateful for the advice. The combo in particular! I didn't even see the potential for Aerial Guide to do such a thing, it was just there since I wanted a couple of flying creatures. I'll look into obtaining those two wonderful cards that you suggested, and I'll likely remove the Aven Reedstalkers. Would a card like Harrow be good for the Landfall effects, or would putting a land in the graveyard be too big a cost in the long run?
The theme I went for was healing and sustaining myself, with Grazing Gladehart , Sylvan Ranger , Ondu Giant and the Avid Reclaimer . Baloth Woodcrasher was meant to be a powerful combo built into it, and I think I'll be trying to get a few more copies of him too. I might also look into cards that give Trample, to give my Timbermaw Larva a similar effect to the Baloth.
Also, I intend on playing Magic casually. Just with a couple of friends, and maybe people at Game stores every so often. Most likely just a casual format, though I believe the deck is Modern legal too, if I'm not wrong.
Once again, thank you for your feedback! I greatly appreciate it, and I'll use it to craft a more effective deck.

Hey there! Welcome to the great world of magic: the gathering!
A tip when building decks is to find a general theme and build around that in order to create a more focused deck. You seem to have some cards that synergize with each other, such as some ramp (add extra lands into play) and landfall in the deck.
For example: Ondu Giant works great with Baloth Woodcrasher and Aerial Guide helps the powered-up creature break through the opponents defenses by giving it evasion (in this case flying). Cards such as Aven Reedstalker does not synergize well with that landfall theme. You might want to consider Evolving Wilds in order to get two landfall triggers in one turn, or Rampant Growth -like cards for that extra ramp and landfall-trigger value.
Secondly, do you know what format you'd like to play in (are you looking at playing casual/kitchen-table magic, standard, modern etc.)? Depending on your choice, there will be different options available to you in terms of card-choice, since the card pool differs greatly between the different formats.
I apologize if this post is somewhat confusing, but I think the most important thing to consider when building decks are:
- What format to play
- What theme/mechanic/gimmick do you want to build around
- Is the deck fun to play for you
