Chord of Calling Discussion

Thanks for stopping by, CastleSiege.

I can understand where you are coming from with the Panorama lands as I don't particularly like the concept of paying out to sac either. Strangely enough, in real-world, this has not been an issue (yet).

I do like your inclusion of Buried Ruin and Inventors' Fair to tutor for Crucible of Worlds. I am considering those adds, but as you have also mentioned, the "Magus of the Crucible" (Ramunap Excavator), has me considering alternative strategy (or just including in addition to).

Now, as far as the Food Chain combo goes, while it does always generate above the casting cost of Titania, Protector of Argoth, the combo itself is geared towards the generation of 5/3 Green Elemental tokens ad infinitum -- not infinite creature mana. That said, it has proven to be a rather gnarly combo.

I went back and forth on Concordant Crossroads -- I am not the biggest fan of the symmetrical effect, but it is a one-drop. I own Akroma's Memorial, but its high-cost originally held me back from adding it to this deck. I am likely going to add at both, but now it is about finding out what to cut.

I actually just scored a foil Nissa, Vital Force earlier this week and was looking to incorporate her. Garruk Wildspeaker looks to be capable of some rather absurd stuff in this deck, which makes it hard to pass up. I plan to add both, but it all boils down on what I should cut to replace them.

Speaking of cutting, I am planning on taking out Birthing Pod and possible some other creature-based tutors, being that, short of winning conditions, I do not really have that many creatures I normally tutor for. I plan on keeping Tooth and Nail, Green Sun's Zenith, and Chord of Calling though, possibly Worldly Tutor as well (though 'reveals' tend to hurt me late-game).

You have brought up a god point about Primal Vigor being symmetrical in effect radius; I honestly overlooked that piece and thought it was a Doubling Season clone. Knowing that, I am more than inclined to agree with you -- does not merit an inclusion.

When it comes to Three Visits and Nature's Lore over Cultivate and Kodama's Reach, I think the trade-off would be worth it, but may require some real-world experimentation on your end. The fact that it does not come into play tapped means a fair amount to me -- I am not fond of losing my momentum.

I would agree that Natural Affinity is likely niche in terms of when it is going to be actually used. The only reason it is staying around is because my meta is pretty heavy on wrath effects and honestly...because I would like to pull it off at least once. Hahaha

Hey, glad you liked my list. Thanks for referencing me, Daedalus19876.

My deck focuses heavily around Titania herself, so being able to get her out ASAP is really important. Personally, I don't like the Panorama lands because it costs mana to sacrifice them. Instead, I choose utility lands that synergise well with the essential cards in the deck. For example, I don't run many artifacts, but the ones I do run are critical to the strategy. Being able to recur them with Buried Ruin is important. I also run Inventors' Fair despite not having many artifacts to turn it on. Being able to tutor for Crucible of Worlds is that important. To assist with activating Inventors' Fair I added Tireless Tracker. The nature of the deck benefits the Tracker greatly and the clue tokens it generates not only grant me essential card draw, but also activate the Fair. Although, I might be making some changes to that substrategy soon with the more easily tutorable Ramunap Excavator.

The infinite mana combo with Food Chain is cute, but the deck should be able to generate immense amounts of mana without it (especially if you have Gaea's Cradle) and I don't see any way for you to abuse the infinite mana.

You're going to want Concordant Crossroads and Akroma's Memorial as win cons. They're the only way to grant all of your creatures haste in mono green.

I'd also definitely recommend Garruk Wildspeaker and Nissa, Vital Force. They are by far the two best planeswalkers for a mono green deck. Garruk with Cradle + Deserted Temple or any combination of them or/with Lotus Vale/Scorched Ruins is disgusting. Nissa is also everything a mono green deck wants: ramp, recursion, and card draw. If my opponents aren't able to stop me from ulting her there is a strong chance that I win that game.

The only creature tutors I use are Green Sun's Zenith (tutor for Dryad Arbor turn 1, puts the creature directly into play, and it shuffles back into the deck), Chord of Calling (instant speed, puts it directly into play), and Tooth and Nail (it's a win con, duh).

I like Parallel Lives and Doubling Season. I opt to not use Primal Vigor because it helps my opponents and I don't think the effect is powerful enough to warrant more than 2 card slots for extra consistency. Doubling Season is also worth the 1 extra mana on the chance of playing one of my two planeswalkers while it's in play. Getting that Nissa ultimate is extremely powerful.

I'm also not a fan of mana dorks in EDH unless it's an elf tribal deck that can make use of them outside of "tap add a mana," so I wouldn't run BOP.

I am thinking of replacing Cultivate and Kodama's Reach with Three Visits and Nature's Lore though. I haven't decided if the one less mana is worth it for also getting one less land (granted it comes into play untapped). With so many ways to play extra lands in my build, I haven't had a problem with the 3 cost ramp spells yet.

Natural Affinity is also cute. I ran it in my first iteration of the deck. I only ever cast it once in response to someone popping a Pernicious Deed. I cut it from the deck after that.

Just gonna go out on a limb and say that Chord of Calling and Green Sun's Zenith are kinda bad in a deck with a bunch of X-costing creatures. I get that they work nicely with Rosheen's ability, but you only have 3 targets for either, so I don't think you'd want to plow in a hydra and have it die as it enters with 0 counters.

Love elves, I feel like you should take a look at some Beck / Call Elves, and Collected Company/Chord of Calling elf decks.

Arbor Elf usually isn't a solid choice as for elf decks as you already tend to go for unlimited mana/life with Essence Warden.Immaculate Magistrate is a cool card, but with the mana cost it usually wouldn't be thrown into an elf deck.

Ezuri, Renegade Leader(as well as Craterhoof Behemoth) is usually a one of which can be fetched with Summoner's Pact. I respect that you're trying to bust out Eldrazi's with elves, but I just feel like other elf decks combo better together.

Not sure what your strategy with Dryad Arbor is. That is a sideboard card for my Infect deck, that I would bring in against a Liliana of the Veil (they use the -2 to make me sac a creature, I crack a fetchland and sacrifice Dryad Arbor instead of my infect creature. I've never seen anyone mainboard a playset.

You'll definitely want to throw in some Nettle Sentinels for your Heritage Druid. Take a look at my friend's deck Call Elves for some Elf deck pointers. This isn't 100% current, but I still use it for play testing. At the moment he is pondering over splashing in a little bit of black for Shaman of the Pack.

Thank you for the feedback I really appreciate it.

+----------+

Overrun is a good card that I had not considered and I only used Zendikar's Roil because it helped fill my 5 cmc spot and it works well with my plans of getting lands out. But I agree it is too slow, in fact I think that Overwhelming Stampede might be better and will trade it in.

I am using Harvest Season because I thought it was a cool new card and I am still on the fence on whether it is good in this deck or not. I will playtest more and see if I just need to trade it out for Cultivate and if I end up doing that I would like to find a spot for Explore so I could play the second land and it just looks like it would work well in this deck.

My meta is pretty slow and a little less aggro so I am slightly comfortable with the amount of mana dorks I have (for now).

And as for Primeval Titan (I only own the one) and Chord of Calling I have little money right now after my vacation but I will purchase these beasts cards when I have more funds.

+----------+

TL;DR

Doing more playtesting but so far:

-2 Zendikar's Roil

-2 Frontier Guide

-1 Lignify

+2 Overwhelming Stampede

+2 Sakura-Tribe Elder

+1 Arbor Elf
