I'd take the staffs out of sideboard they don't really do anything for you, if you want life gain just run Bow of Nylea
Bow of Nylea is very good against burn decks..... also you should run the Dissolve s mainboard you can't call it control with no counters main board, and only have 59 cards in your deck you need 1 more
At my local shop, aggro is king and my hornet's nests literally stop them dead in their tracks. It's the best anti-aggro green card I've ever played with. Also, I've actually taken out the archetypes for Ranger's guile. I agree that, for the intended purpose, most of those heavy removal decks are usually putting some level of pressure on the field and my archetype won't get out in time to get my best hitters alive.
I'm saying no to Bow of Nylea . I've played with the card in the past. As much as i love the bow and Aspect of Hydra , those two cards are strictly aggro. Believe me, i've tried every form of green this block and aggro just falls short in too many scenarios. Great cards but they'd only take out this decks best utility: The creatures
This is from my perspective so take it with a grain of salt, keep in mind I don't play "The Rock", but have played against very often. I would cut a putrefy for 1x Dismember
, I would cut 1x Maelstrom Pulse
for 1x more Abrupt Decay
. Reason being for Abrupt Decay
lower cmc and destroys most things at instant speed, Maelstrom Pulse
cost 1 more and is at sorcery speed although we would still like to see one. Dismember
is added because it helps in certain situations (indestructible) and is almost free if need to be.
Although I like Creakwood Liege the CMC is a bit high. Look at it this way, you have 3x in the deck more than likely you will draw it, and "The Rock" in modern is more of a control deck, so its 4cmc permits you to playing it on turn 4 since you'd rather not want to tap out and deal with what most modern decks can do by turn 4, albeit you will be disrupting them the whole way, but you want to make sure you can lock them out of the win. So that leaves it for turn 6 or more and in order for that to work you would have to cut more creatures and make it so overbearing control to make it more successful in a competitive setting as well as consistent. So instead we will change it in more of a direction you would like. Since Dark Confidant is out of budget that slows your draws down, Bow of Nylea I would say cut it for better things and I will explain why in a moment. (The Scooze and Thrun seem to have the right numbers)Since other Rock decks would be outpacing at this current build with the lack of Tarmo and Confidant we need to focus on the slots we will have open so with Creakwood, Phyrexian Arena, Bow of Nylea gone that opens up 5 spots, with those 5 spots since we lack speed draw and a nice beater we probably should focus on a beater that is resilient yet cost effective CMC wise and thats hard to do. Hmmm.. how about Tombstalker or Avatar of Woe since effectively you will be adding things to the graveyard consistently enough that either of these can come out quick and decimate and they are only a 1-2.
I like this a lot, Z! A couple card choices I disagree with and what I think would be better in this particular shell.
TL is a format where fetches aren't amazing. You want to run the Checklands in place of the fetches, and Tectonic Edge. 5 fetches can turn into, instead, 1 Hinterland Harbor , 1 Drowned Catacomb , and 1 Woodland Cemetery . You can have then 1 Tectonic Edge and 1 Treetop Village . You can afford two ETB-tapped lands in your deck.
I don't think Green Sun's Zenith is that strong when you're only running six green creatures and your likelihood of drawing them is fairly good compared to other things in your deck. I really like Eternal Witness or even Treasured Find in that spot-- generates advantage, gives you something good.
Swords are fine, although Idk how I feel about running two. Tell me how it goes.
+1 from me, I'm running a similar deck definitely switching in the terra stompers into it. I would suggest you playtest with Aspect of Hydra , for one game I snuck in an elvish mystic who ended up dealing 14 dmg. Also maybe Ranger's Guile instead of the archetype, I know he can be quicker to cast, but I found having some instant speed spells rather than just creatures helped me a lot with this deck. Lastly my go to is Bow of Nylea , which is in my opinion one of the best, versatile, green cards, which also help devotion.
i feel like the ensoul isn't worth it unless you are playing 4 Ornithopter and 4 Darksteel Citadel but you have a lot of double mana cards that are hard to cast that playing dark steel might not be effective for you. 4 bows is just too many. you should hit 1 of three pretty consistently so that you don't end up with dead draws when you have a pile of bows in hand. ornithopter + boon satyr + ensoul sounds great until it gets doom bladed.
these are suggestions based on what i think would be good if you are looking to use scourge.
