Boreal Druid Discussion

Dankey on Kruphix, God of Horizons (EDH)

Welcome back to mtg! Lands like Command Tower , Flooded Grove , and Yavimaya Coast all come into play untapped and help mana fixing. Including all the <2cmc mana rocks and dorks you can will help, especially when playing a commander like Kruphix. Arbor Elf , Birds of Paradise , Boreal Druid , Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , and Llanowar Elves are all auto includible in my book.

Disallow is strictly better than Voidslime , and less expensive to boot!

Running several mana dorks is always a bonus to most green lists. Arbor Elf , Birds of Paradise , Boreal Druid , Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , Llanowar Elves , and Priest of Titania all come to mind. You can also include Noble Hierarch if you can get a good deal on one.

Fallerup: Yeah lol. I think I would be mocked and ridiculed if Boreal Druid made it into the deck before Arbor Elf . Not to mention the synergy it has with Wild Growth and Utopia Sprawl .

Fallerup: The reason for the Boreal Druid is efficiency and consistency. We need every one drop dork green has to offer, because we want to leave the early game as quickly as possible. Somberwald Sage can only be used on creatures, which isn't very useful in the grand scheme of things despite the creature based nature of the deck.

Last but not least, elves are an important sub theme and a lot of my infinite Mana loops require me to repeatedly bounce creatures and the more cost efficient they are the easier it becomes to execute the combo.

Why the Boreal Druid ? it's like, the worst green mana dork in MTG. you have so many better options. even elves that untap a land are better than that one. Somberwald Sage for example, it taps for the same mana that it costs to cast it. the only thing you lose with that one is the elf syngery, so unless that's important to you, that one is just better in my opinion. is it the mana cost? 1 mana cost vs 3? but this is a very nice deck none the less, I really liked the budget version of this as well.

I would add a bunch of cheap mana dorks. They help you ramp into Karametra but then will help you get lands off her. Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , Boreal Druid , Avacyn's Pilgrim , Priest of Titania , etc are all really good options and will make your deck a lot faster as well.

Thanks, I think I can go over why Cyclonic Rift is the worst card ever printed next xD

Also, Azusa, as a commander doesn't need much ramp. Often, you would rather lands in hand, because 3 land drops a turn will get you there.

The deck runs ramp though, but 1 mana ramp, because they want their play-pattern to be as follows:

Turn 1: Forest , Wild Growth (sub this for any other turn 1 ramp, Arbor Elf , Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Utopia Sprawl , Boreal Druid , Sol Ring , Green Sun's Zenith for Dryad Arbor , Fyndhorn Elves , or whatever else)

Turn 2: Forest , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Forest , Forest

Turn 3: Empty hand. of lands/spells with the lands you just played.

See how Rampant Growth neither gives you the turn one ramp to get the turn two azusa, nor does it give you more ramp than a land after? Unless you had 3 lands in hand AND a Rampant Growth AND not have enough mana to cast the spell in hand.
