Birthing Pod Discussion

What an incredible pile, consistent tutor abuse and able to go off, mind if I attempt to make a cEDH variant, based on Birthing Pod/Rebels lines?

I will easily link this deck and you in the description, you've always wowed me @king-saproling!~

Also, call your self the King of Naya because between this and Bruse Tana it's looking like it xD

Cool, glad that I could help. :) Wow, I would like to test the list right now! The deck ramps so fast and it has so many possibilities to generate infinite mana (please put sword of Paruns back in).

Therefore you have to play Walking Ballista, because it's an important alternative wincon. outside of the combat step or they can be used as boardwipe / removal / pingengine. And since you added Cloudstone Curio, I can highly recommend Llanowar Visionary instead of Wood Elves, as you have ramp + draw in one card. It's good that you added Yisan, he's a fantastic toolbox, but to get the most out of him you'll need to form a cmc chain and unfortunately you're not currently playing cards with Yisan from a 4-CMC creature like Temur Sabertooth Regal Force (into >> Craterhoof Behemoth). Therefore, you should add at least 1-2x 5CMC and 6CMC cards each. Personally, I always found Somberwald Stag strong in my Yisan deck, because he's a Removal on a Stick which can be tutored (with Curio and Sabertooth, the whole thing can be worn out even more) or, as already mentioned, Ohran Frostfang...

As a 6 CMC card I would play the Woodland Bellower (or depending on the meta Kogla, the Titan Ape or Bane of Progress

I would use one of these combinations: Somberwald Stag + Woodland Bellower Or Ohran Frostfang + Kogla, the Titan Ape

So your tutor chain is complete, so you can easily turn an Elvish Mystic into a Craterhoof with Yisan (/ Pod)

Do you have Copperhorn Scout in the deck for an important reason? If not, I would cut him.

I'll probably make myself unpopular with the next suggestion, but I'd cut the Nyxbloom Ancient for Sword of the Paruns . I personally love Nyxbloom as a card (but in my Kruphix deck), but in this deck he isn't a combopiece and because of that he's a classic win-more card, because if you reach 7+ mana you should normally win in your next turns at worst. The ancient adds 3x mana, that's a lot but also often annoying for your opponents to see you calculating and infinite mana (with the sword) is just always better than 3x mana.

I would cut Autumn's Veil for Birthing Pod. Because Autumn's Veil isn't by far as good as his big brother. Autumn doesn't draw you a card, doesn't protect vs. Boardwipes or against non blue/black removal. In addition, you now have the new Allosaurus against counterspells in your deck, so I would rather play the Birthing Pod to provide redundancy together with Yisan and so that you can look for the right creatures.

Wow what a cool looking Primer. Solid deck, you did an absolutely great job! I'm a big Elf tribal fan, because Elves where my first deck ever.

Cool cards that I personally enjoyed playing:

This deck looks already pretty strong, if you want to play on a cEDH table, you just should do some small adjustments:

I played elves in almost every format and cool combo from modern was: Cloudstone Curio + Heritage Druid + Nettle Sentinel = infinite mana or with something like Elvish Visionary or Beast Whisperer you can also draw your entire deck if you want

I was wondering recently: if I have a Vedalken Orrery in play, and a Birthing Pod, can I activate the Pod at instant speed since I Orrery lets me cast sorceries at any time I want?... My guess is no but I want to know! Thanks all.

I'm going to suggest a lot of possible cards to give you options, but I'm not saying they should all go in the deck!

Here's some additional sac outlets, since I think they'll be useful for keeping your creatures flowing:
Viscera Seer
Birthing Pod
Woe Strider
Yahenni, Undying Partisan
Yawgmoth, Thran Physician
Diabolic Intent
Attrition

And here are some cards that go well with doing damage and saccing creatures:
Dictate of Erebos
Butcher of Malakir
Erebos, Bleak-Hearted
Midnight Reaper
Moldervine Reclamation
Chandra's Ignition (deals double damage to the chosen player and is also a panic button)

You might need some additional protection since you're likely to be a target:
Teferi's Protection
Flawless Maneuver
Deflecting Swat

Hope that gives you a good starting point. However, I don't think Saskia is necessarily a high synergy commander. If you're really looking for synergy and/or combo decks (since you have Aluren in the deck), I'd recommend Korvold, Fae-Cursed King, Prossh, Skyraider of Kher, or Meren of Clan Nel Toth.

I would consider taking out higher cost cards. Both walkers you're running are nice but there are better cards you could run for both of them. E.g Fiend Artisan Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. Look at a card and think what you would rather have in hand. Do you really want a Vitality hunter top deck turn 7 over a Green Sun's Zenith?

Personally I like how well these cards have worked for me with kathril: See the Unwritten, green sun and Black Sun's Zenith (though i cut my black sun for an Akroma's Vengeance), Entomb, and Birthing Pod
