Bosk Banneret Discussion

Treefolk Harbinger would also fit like a glove, even as a 4-of, since it can fetch both cards you need to get the ball rolling Bosk Banneret and Leaf-Crowned Elder + Forest if needed. I dare say it could greatly improve consistensy.

I feel like Tajuru Preserver, Loaming Shaman, Vexing Shusher are very specific for the main deck and should probably be used in the sideboard against mill, stax, and counters. I also think that Kumano, Master Yamabushi is a drain on your mana that doesnt fit with the fast pace. Eternal Witness is mostly better suited for decks playing more spells and 3 mana for a 2/1 is weak compared to the other creatures.
With that being said, red decks run Lightning Bolt almost as an auto-include. Burning-Tree Emissary fits persectly with your ramp and I feel like having some more cheaper creatures would be great for early game. Shaman also is not the cheapest tribe, so while you do have Bosk Banneret, I feel like Urza's Incubator would do very well. Rakka Mar adds a faster aspect for the deck, and Signal the Clans is always some fun. Hope this helps! I could see this struggling with turbo fog, and if you run into board wipes you're not gonna have a fun time.
As for me, I'm very excited for GotG2, but more so for the Pirates of the Caribbean 5! I love those movies so much. My life has been all right, there isn't too much news from up in Maine. You?

Slagwurm Armor is pretty great. Just an equipment with a +6/+6 buff for a mere 4 colorless mana.
Treefolk Harbinger is a strong 1-drop tutor that also has a high toughness.
Silklash Spider does an incredible job of protecting you from fliers, plus it's effectively a 7/7 to boot.
Oathsworn Giant gives your entire team a massive anthem boost and vigilance, which is a really relevant ability given all your high toughness creatures.
Behind the Scenes is interesting since most of your creatures have low power and skulk will make them unblockable, but Doran then assigns high damage afterwards. It also pumps your creatures in a pinch.
Bosk Banneret ensures your high-power (or should I say, toughness) Treefolk will hit the board sooner.
Spidersilk Armor is another anthem effect with Doran, plus it gives you another way to counter fliers.
Nyx-Fleece Ram has a high toughness-to-cost ratio and buffers your life a little bit.
Deadwood Treefolk gives you a small amount of recursion, which is always useful and powerful.

Assault Formation is nice, on it's own it does nothing. I don't want to play formation, because it isn't creature. Doran, with his 5 toughness, can attack for 3. Also playing such enchantment on turn 2 would prevent me from turn three Leaf-Crowned Elder/Dauntless Dourbark/Unstoppable Ash... to play that Bosk Banneret is much better. As for Nylea, God of the Hunt, she is not a treefolk, doesn't fit the theme and I don't even think, that she would be good in my deck (I don't know why I think so, maybe I just don't like her...)

Decided to reopen this deck a bit more than I originally planned. I like a lot of the mini-Voltron aspects of my Rat deck, as it really opens up options depending on how my draws play out (something that the current deck is far too rigid with). I've added all the best crossover cards from that deck, as well as added the strongest Golgari shaman I could find. This still fits the theme I want, as Sapling herself is a shaman, and Bosk Banneret benefits both.
As you can see, I am a good number of cards over my limit, so I will be slowly removing them until I am more comfortable with how the deck sits.
As always, any opinions or advice is greatly appreciated!

Looks like a great start man. I'd ditch the Arbor Elf for Treefolk Harbinger though. Also, Bosk Banneret is better than Strangleroot Geist and I'd swap out the Dismember for Primal Bellow or Vines of Vastwood. Love the Blanchwood Armor though! +1'd

Oooooh so many good suggestions!
I can definitely fit Treefolk Harbinger in.
Concerning all the other creatures I'm considering running only 1x of all the creatures and higher, that way I can fit a lot of other Treefolk in. Defiantly want multiples of Bosk Banneret and Sakura-Tribe Elder.
Those spells look nice I'll have to see what I can fit in. How many land do you think I could run comfortably? Should I stay 24?
As usual you have great suggestions Bobba Sensei! Thanks a lot!
