Carven Caryatid Discussion

I agree, K4m4r0. I would be very unlikely to remove the 0/4 cantrips in my deck, they are both fantastic. I was simply referring to those as a minimum threshold which cards like Carven Caryatid and Jungle Barrier don't quite meet, hence are not included in the deck.

Fog Bank , Guardians of Meletis , Wall of Mist , Wall of Roots , and Wall of Vines are all lackluster defenders. Jungle Barrier , Jeskai Barricade , Sylvan Caryatid , and Carven Caryatid would be better choices in my opinion.

Both Warden of the First Tree and Figure of Destiny are removal magnets and since neither of them start as spirits, instant speed removal will likely hit them before you are able to sink mana into them. The established spirit tribal deck in modern would tend to be UW and have Mausoleum Wanderer and Rattlechains as early plays. If you wanted to splash green then Strangleroot Geist, Permeating Mass, Carven Caryatid and the already included Loam Dweller might be worth it. As for the 9 cards which cast 5+ mana, the odds are against you getting to cast them without some major ramp...

@ Homelessguy yea your description is fine, im personally not a fan of combos in commander, unless its filled with a bunch of fetch cards or combos with your general, your combos do seem interesting though. if your interested in more one sided board wipes, you can also consider Wave of Reckoning Retribution of the Meek (bury means to sacrafice, meaning those creatures cant be regenerated), Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Fell the Mighty. im not a fan of Angelic Wall or Murmuring Phantasm, as only 4 toughness creatures you may be able to replace them with creatures that offer more toughness or utility, such as Amaranthine Wall, Carven Caryatid, Glacial Wall, Gomazoa, Wakestone Gargoyle, Wall of Glare, or Wall of Mulch. also your deck seems to heavily rely on arcades to be able to swing, maybe consider playing Wakestone Gargoyle, Belligerent Brontodon, and Rolling Stones.
