Selphiron on Help with non-combo Selvala, Explorer ...

13 hours ago

Hi,

(tl;dr at the bottom) so my bestest friends gave me a copy of Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (they must be kind of masochistic), Marwyn, the Nurturer, Seedborn Muse and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.
But the problem is, I don't know which 3 cards I should take out of my Selvala, Explorer Returned deck. Please see the description in the link for how the deck works. My meta is quite casual, but not very janky. The games usually end after turn 10, we have almost no combo decks.

First of all: Do you think, that I shouldn't take any of those 4 cards into my deck?

I was thinking of Primordial Sage, because I don't cast every creature I put into play and I have Soul of the Harvest and my Commander. I don't really have card draw problems. So maybe I could cut it for Vorinclex.

The second card I was thinking of taking out is Frontline Medic. I never used the second ability (counter target spell with X, unless opponent pays additional 3). And it must attack with at least two other creatures. The two other creatures part isn't the problem most of the times, but that it has to attack is sometimes a problem. I only have two haste enabler and usually I don't attack anyway. When I attack, I do it to close the game or to finish someone off. And if I do, I rarely need it. And I have Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant and other ways of making my creatures indestructible.

The third card I was thinking of taking out is Fyndhorn Elder. I know it is a good card, but I think that Marwyn, the Nurturer is a better replacement.

And I can't decide, whether I should exchange Dragonlord Dromoka with Grand Abolisher. I don't really need the flying part of Dromoka and the lifegain is sweet but the main reason I have it in my deck is to prevent things like AEtherize, when I go for the kill. I have Abeyance for the same reason. I usually finish the game with Triumph of the Hordes and Overwhelming Stampede. So I need 10-11 mana with Dromoka and 6-7 mana with Grand Abolisher.

Oh and I would be thankful for general advice like "this card would be better than this card". My budget is rather tight though (I don't like to spend more than 10$ on a card).

Other cards I was thinking of taking out:
Shield of the Oversoul, Indrik Umbra, Beastmaster Ascension, Lys Alana Huntmaster.

Thanks in advance for your help =)

tl;dr: I want to put Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Marwyn, the Nurturer, Seedborn Muse and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds into this Deck but I don't know what cards to take out.

Profet93 on Azusa gets there

Since you're playing Azusa, you're gonna want more lands to play your threats more quickly. I would go up to at least 44 as a starting point and then add up to (usually no more than) 50 lands.

My first comment doesn't work with spoilers so here it is.

Cuts and Additions

I see you have an eldrazi theme. That being sad, you should only add the important eldrazi to free up slots that will help you achieve your goal.

Desolation Twin - Two big dudes with no trample or ETB

Eldrazi Devastator - Big dude with trample for 8 is not worth it

Endless One, Feral Hydra, Undergrowth Champion Verdant Force - More big dudes with no real impact, verdant force tokens are not abused in your build

Sakura-Tribe Elder - Replace with land

Solemn Simulacrum - Replace with land. Sad robot is used in decks with no ramp or card draw like boros. You're green so this isn't necessary

Vorapede - Medium sized dude that comes back, no central to your game plan

While I personally don't like Nature's Spiral, you might as well replace it with Recollect. It costs 1 more but can get you back cards like G-Wave or Tooth and Nail. Huge difference for 1 mana, worth it.

Renegade Map - Replace with land 100%

Beastmaster Ascension - Best in a token build, not your deck

Curse of Predation, Forced Adaptation and Retreat to Kazandu - No benefit to your strategy. Yes the last is landfall, but its not significant landfall.

Song of Freyalise - No idea why this is here, you're not a token build

Blinding Fog < Heroic Intervention

Warriors' Lesson - Weak

Plummet - Limited removal (meta dependent)

Additions

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth - Card draw, threat, HIGHLY recommend.

Kozilek, the Great Distortion - Super card draw. You will need colorless mana for him. Given that you're mono green, I would replace some basic forests with some non basic lands for both utility AND so you can run him. Azusa decks NEED card draw and he is one of the best

Conduit of Ruin - Helps you find threats, cost reducer

Bane of Progress - Should at least consider it. It may not work in your build necessarily, but it can absolutely destroy board states. Terastodon could also work without hurting you.

Emrakul, the Promised End - Big dude, cost reduced, cast trigger/mind control and protection with evasion. HIGHLY recommend.

Fierce Empath - Finds threats or either kozileks for card draw

Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar - Read it, run it. Love it. works well with fetches.

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip - Helps you get lands, turns into an engine afterwards. Dont have to run it but it might help.

Courser of Kruphix and Oracle of Mul Daya - If you listen to anything I said, run these 2. Fixes draws, ramps and even some lifegain.

Ramunap Excavator - You should run some fetches (cheap ones or expensive ones) to help ensure and fuel land drops, thin out deck and provide recursion for utilty lands.

Tireless Tracker - Provides card draw, gets big, works well with fetches (I mentioned fetches many times, they are probably important. RUN THEM!)

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger - Removal wincon. Green doesn't have much permanent removal so ulamog helps.

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre - See above

Woodland Bellower - Utility in finding whatever you need. Ramunap Excavator for recursion, e-wit for general recursion, courser of kruphix for ramp, reclamation sage (if you chose to add it) for artifact/enchantment removal, fierce emmpath to find eldrazi bombs, etc.... Depends on if you have enough targets (note: NON-legendary)

World Breaker - Works with your eldrazi idea, can recur itself, removal all in 1.

Yavimaya Elder - Dont need to run it but it helps with card draw and ramp, up to you.

Greater Good - Remember, card draw is azusa's biggest issue. This card basically makes it no issue. Also is a nice sac outlet against exile and steal effects. RUN THIS!!

Song of the Dryads - You need permanent removal in green, this is great to use on their commander (particularly on red or black generals who have difficulty removing enchantments). Also see Beast Within if you prefer instant speed interaction and actually destroying something. Up to you, but I like song of dryads more (it also a permanent to go with g-wave)

Survival of the Fittest - Creature tutors are HUGE. Helps you find bombs or key utility (see ramanup excavtor). Lastly, protects against graveyard exile effects by tossing a create, getting an eldrazi like Kozilek or Ulamog that shuffles your grave back in.

Sylvan Library - Like sensei's but you can pay the life to draw more cards. I can't tell you how many times this has helped me. TOP DECK MANIPULATION with FETCHES = GOOD TIMES/SMOOTHER DRAWS!!! RUN THIS!

Garruk, Primal Hunter - Card draw, can make tokens and ult is relevant. Although I just minus him right away (can use Soul's Magesty instead, but it isnt a permanent for g-wave).

Rishkar's Expertise - Card draw AND casts a 5 cmc or less spell for free. Run it either instead of or in addition to the above (usually in addition to).

Nissa, Vital Force - +1 is ok, -3 is relevant, and just read the ult. Protect it for one turn and you'e golden

Boundless Realms - The ramp is strong with this one

Rude Awakening > Sylvan Awakening. Yes they arent indestructible, but it's utility in becoming a wincon late game or ramp mid game is great. Also works well with mana doublers like Zendikar resurgent or Mana reflection.

Horn of Greed - BEST CARD IN YOUR DECK. You will get WAY more value than your opponents.

Crucible of Worlds - To work with fetches!! ADD THIS (and the ramanup excavtor)

Thaumatic Compass - Helps ensure land drops, turns into a better maze of ith. Should consider but not necessary

Momentous Fall - Very useful but not necessary. Helps prevent exile/steal effects. Can also use in response to removal (creature dies anyways but you get insane benefit).

Utility Lands

Here are some fetches, these are your primary ones to acquire

Blighted Woodland

Evolving Wilds

Misty Rainforest

Myriad Landscape

Terramorphic Expanse

Verdant Catacombs

Windswept Heath

Wooded Foothills

Terminal Moraine - Nice but not neccesary if you run above

Warped Landscape - Same as above

Utility Lands

Cavern of Souls - Anti blue (meta dependent)

Crystal Vein/Ancient Tomb - Enables turn 2 Azusa, vein is replayable ramp with crucible/excavtor

Eldrazi Temple - Fuel eldrazi

Eye of Ugin - Tutors AND fuels eldrazi. SUPER Important card. ADD THIS! Helps you find the eldrazi you need for card draw, removal and to win.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - Ramp

Reliquary Tower - No max hand size

Sanctum of Ugin - Find other eldrazi

Thawing Glaciers - Ensures land drops! ADD THIS! I underestimated it at first too but it's pulled some weight

Yavimaya Hollow - Regen

You can add land destruction like strip mine if you want but idk how your playgroup is. There are other utility lands too but I feel like this is enough for now

When/if you accept/like some of these ideas, I would like to present you with cards for finding the important utility lands (like eye, which in turn can find your creatures needed to win, ensures consistency!)

If you have any questions, want more feedback or cuts, let me know!

Why are you playing Vivid Grove and Joiner Adept in your Mono-Green deck? Elvish Piper doesn't seem to do much in a deck that has so much ramp and no expensive creatures.

Some recommendations that jump out at me are

Cut Joiner Adept, Elvish Piper, Wirewood Elf, Creeping Mold, Chorus of Might, Vivid Grove

Add Priest of Titania, Copperhorn Scout, Arbor Elf, Beast Within, Beastmaster Ascension, Mosswort Bridge

Alright, here goes:

  • Cavern of Souls/Yavimaya Hollow - I'm getting them eventually, the foils are expensive, especially the hollow, and I've had other deck projects I've been working on.
  • Hall of the Bandit Lord - it's an interesting card, and I may have to test it out.
  • Miren, the Moaning Well - I already plan on getting one.
  • Petrified Field - not sure on this, I just added in Ramunap Excavator and have a few other recursion tools to get back important lands.
  • Tempt with Discovery - I really like this card. And I know it can get me any land. Problem is. My friends know this deck and not a single one of them will take the bait for me to get extra lands, so i think I'd rather go with your suggestion of Crop Rotation instead.
  • Elemental Bond - not a fan, only because at least with packleader, it's an off rive threat on top of draw engine. But you're right, he us the weakest of my draw engines and I think Greater Good will work out, really well.
  • Dryad Arbor - this card has been in my mind since I first created the deck and I both like it and hate it. I like the fact it's a 0 cost creature and a land. But at the same time. It takes my land play for the turn, and I can't tap it for mana since it has summoning sickness. So I don't know if I'll ever add it or not, but maybe I'll try it soon.
  • Shamanic Revelation - I really like this card, and it'll find a home once I figure out what to take out.
  • Beastmaster Ascension - great card, but not needed in this deck. I already have several backups for Kamahl in case he gets locked down, and they all add trample on top of buffing my creatures.
  • Wolfbriar Elemental/Ant Queen - token production in this deck has always been passive, i.e. landfall, planeswalker, etc; it helps the deck, but it's not a focus and I don't want creatures that require lots of mana to generate tokens.
  • Realms Uncharted - really just not a fan of this card, I can see it's potential. But I really just don't like it.
  • Rude Awakening/Early Harvest/Magus of the Candelabra - I like being able to untap my lands. But since I'm adding in Staff of Domination, I don't think I'll need it. As I'll have several ways to infinite mana now, but you never know. I'm gonna keep these in mind just in case.
  • Birthing Pod - this a great card, but my deck isn't set up to maximize how it works.
  • Vernal Bloom - this affects all forests, and I hate group hug cards. Concordant Crossroads is an exception because I only play it when I cast a big genesis wave so I can win that turn.

All I can see when I look at your name is Kakarot (Goku from DBZ). Anways, since you're running mono green, your mana base could use some utility in there. I understand you need green mana for your commander's ability but some utility is key.

Cavern of Souls - 30% of your deck is creatures and you run boseju but not this?

Hall of the Bandit Lord - Haste outlet that doesnt help your opponents or take a slot in the deck. Worth considering.

Miren, the Moaning Well - Used to prevent them from stealing your commander or exiling important creatures. Life gain is always nice too :)

Petrified Field - Getting back cradle or utility land

Yavimaya Hollow - Regen your commander? Yes please! Also a RL card so good investment.

Tempt with Discovery - Gets cradle untapped (very underated card). Add it.

Crop Rotation - Helps lower your curve, find's cradle, could replace concordant crossroad at the 1 CMC slot (if you choose to add in hall of the bandit lord). Slyvan scrying is your only way to find cradle which seems to be a focal point of your deck.

Elemental Bond - Could replace Garruk packleader. While it isn't a creature to fuel cradle, it is less prone to creature removal. Then again, you say your meta has a lot of artifact enchantment removal, so it depends. Also, it only interacts with 13 creatures. At that point, you might just want to add Greater Good. Nets card advantage, acts as a sac outlet. ADD IT

Dryad Arbor - Fuels cradle and interacts with Green Sun Zenith for X = 0.

Shamanic Revelation - If you aren't taking out pack leader for elemental bond, at least take it out for this. Synergy with your token generation from your commander and avenger.

Beastmaster Ascension - EH, maybe add it. Can make your dudes huge.

You can also take this deck to a more token based strategy which is based on finding cradle and fueling it through tokens. Should you choose to do so, I would add the following...

Wolfbriar Elemental - Wolves!!!

Ant Queen - Steady token generator

Realms Uncharted - Helps you find utility lands. If you choose to add fetchlands in the deck's future, then this choose then as well. Might also want to add a crucible to provide redundancy, but thats for later.

Rude Awakening - Add it, trust me. Super ritual with built in win con

Early Harvest - Weaker version of above

Magus of the Candelabra - To untap utility lands and cheap cradle fuel

Birthing Pod - While i've never completely understood the power of this card, but you'r creature curve looks really good and you might want to consider this as an additional creature tutor to ensure consistency.

Why no vernal bloom?

I honestly didn't even mean to comment this much but your deck seems really interesting. I look forward to reviewing your thought process on these potential additions. Cheers!

Rude Awakening lets you animate and untap your lands. Living Plane, Nature's Revolt, Natural Emergence, and Life and Limb are some other ways to animate your lands permanently. Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip give you a lot of bonus mana when your lands are animated. Kamahl seems quite expensive to animate lands, even though his second ability is useful. Beastmaster Ascension can pump your lands for less mana cost (meaning you don't have to tap them for mana so you can attack with them).

It also feels like right now your strategy is split between animating lands and attacking, casting a big Scapeshift to burn opponents with Valakut, or using one of those X mana spells to burn them. If you want to focus on attacking with animated lands, it might be better to drop all those other wincons and add other cards to the deck.

nice deck :) I'd suggest making room for the other two archetypes, Archetype of Imagination and Archetype of Imagination. Thassa, God of the Sea would also be great here. Beastmaster Ascension for an enchantment win con card.

Perhaps Mirri and Brago for cards to take out. Excellent creatures but not really on theme.
