Hello, Dickbutt McGee here.

This is all fine and good, but you have nothing to prevent other people from fucking you over. You'll need a bit of removal in case someone plays something that essentially reads "Michaela's deck doesn't work anymore."


Gaze of Granite

Maelstrom Pulse

Abrupt Decay


Windgrace's Judgment

Garruk, Apex Predator

Ob Nixilis Reignited

Vraska the Unseen

Vraska, Scheming Gorgon

Cankerous Thirst

^^^These are all solid ways to remove bullshit on other people's field that may be fucking you over.

Some cards that allow you to do graveyard bullshit:

Jarad's Orders: Search for something big and scary to put in the graveyard for you to later cheat onto the field, and search for something that is good utility like Solemn Simulacrum to put in your hand.

Grisly Salvage is also a great way to be filling your graveyard with bullshit to later cheat onto the field.

Liliana, Death's Majesty is great for both filling your graveyard with bullshit to cheat, and then she also helps you cheat it onto the field

Golgari Charm is just a solid card all around. It might not make the cut but it's good.

Cankerous Thirst, Artisan's Sorrow and Gilt-Leaf Seer look rather weak to me, i suggest cutting one of these.

Quite light on the draw. I would include either a draw engine like Necropotence or something like Phyrexian Arena and Ancient Craving.

Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper might not be a treefolk, but they help.

Verdeloth the Ancient is a lord who can also vomit a lot of tokens down.

Abzan Beastmaster is some draw power.

Gift of the Deity, Burgeoning, Cankerous Thirst, Rending Vines, Life/Death, Worldslayer all seem a bit lakcluster. I get what you are going for with World but it isn't that amazing. Swiftfoot Boots seem great for this very voltronny deck.

I love Sapling of Colfenor, I ran her for a year or so before building Doran, the Siege Tower

Looking at your commander, I would run more than ~23% creatures in the deck. For strength and utility purposes, going outside of the tribal mold may be your best bet.

To capitalize on her abilities, I'd run Sensei's Divining Top to help ensure you hit a creature every time. I also LOVED Well of Lost Dreams; as you're always gaining life when you flip a creature (even if you lose life to it's power). Another mean card with her is Quietus Spike (good call on Gift of the Deity ;)

I would take out some of the instants/sorceries that only hit once for those that hit again and again. Cankerous Thirst, Moment's Peace, Life/Death, etc all seem underwhelming. Maelstrom Pulse is good, as is Abrupt Decay if you're looking for removal

Once again, I would replace some things with creatures to hit her ability more often. Weatherseed Totem, Golgari Germination, and Lignify is hilarious but not 100% necessary

Have fun!
