Birthing Boughs Discussion

Demarge on Ally Strike

4 days ago

Honestly until they chained 3 really good 5 color commanders set after set Tazri was a top tier Food Chain combo commander, so technically an ally commander is still fairly good.

Now outside of the Food Chain and dramatic scepter combo's you can run in commander to go infinite mana then cast your commander over and over for Kalastria Healer triggers there are many ways to greately jump the power of this deck and become way more resilient to board wipes.

First is to cut a lot of the allies that are vastly weaker in commander where life totals are twice as big and decks are 39 cards taller. then using the new slots add in mana ramp and cards that interact with opponents (counters Abrupt Decay etc.).

Now you can be an ally deck but with much stronger creatures thanks to enchantments like Arcane Adaptation , Xenograft , or Conspiracy with any of those any of your creatures will trigger ally effects and Turntimber Ranger can go infinite with any of these enchants the moment he enters.

Now for simple addon to this pile that isn't just restructuring the deck Birthing Boughs is a really easy to get ally making engine.

Also: On Birthing Boughs 's own page the correct 2/2 tokens are assigned to it, but when I use it in my own deck the 1/1:s from Lorwyn are listed: Sssshamanssss

Any thoughts of updating this? We got some good new changelings to consider. My thoughts:

-- Henge Guardian --> Webweaver Changeling

-- Enduring Victory --> Birthing Boughs

-- Arashin Sovereign --> Irregular Cohort

Sliver_God on Budget Slivers WIP V.0.3

Apologies for the delay, I've been ridiculously busy... Looks like a solid budget build to me, have you gotten the chance to play with it? The only thing that I really don't like right now is Birthing Boughs ...You would have to pay 7 mana to create a 2/2 that does nothing else for the Hive. I would definitely trade that and some of the weaker slivers, like Enduring Sliver for some budget tutors so that you can get Crystalline ASAP for example... Also, don't forget non-sliver friends like Fierce Empath , I think it's like 50 cents right now? It can give you a blocker/sacrifice pawn that searches for your Battering, Constricting, Groundshaker, or Megantic slivers-- maybe even tutor Valiant Changeling to your hand PLUS help you cast it! Looks fun... Happy Hunting!

Smokebraider seems worth playing.

I don't like Growth Spiral . I think you want a guaranteed land for Omnath, not a draw. Birthing Boughs seems terrible. Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer seems bad too, even with the subtype.

I might consider getting rid of Volrath's Laboratory , but if you are keeping it you could consider switching for for Birthing Boughs , technically the same thing for less mana.

Maybe Turnabout or maybe Deluge - removing cards is always the tougher than finding new cards to add

KayneMarco on A Sliver Deck With No Slivers?!!

Pleeber: The problem with the laboratory is that it doesn’t make creatures that have changeling. I do have Birthing Boughs which does make changelings in the maybeboard if I can figure out what to exchange it for.
