Concordant Crossroads Discussion
6 days ago
hkhssweiss - My poor man's Craterhoof Behemoth right now is Tooth and Nail into Surrak, the Hunt Caller and Pathbreaker Ibex but End-Raze Forerunners is a good option too. Also I desperately want Concordant Crossroads but right now it's a little bit out of my budget. Maybe next paycheck!
- Love all these suggestions. I've definitely been heavily considering Birthing Pod and Triumph of the Hordes . Infect is slightly frowned upon in my group but I might just say fuck it and go in on it anyway. It's too good to leave behind. Champion of Lambholt is an interesting idea that I didn't consider initially but she could also be a really useful inclusion now that I think about it. Got her in a few other decks and she always plays great. Thanks for the suggestions!

Yo Kaigz, you can try using End-Raze Forerunners as a budget Craterhoof Behemoth , or another idea is to create a Primal Surge deck. Take out all the non-permanent spells and use spells like Concordant Crossroads or Akroma's Memorial as finishers as well.
Hope that helps!

I would maybe add one or two more ways to capitalize on the tokens. Overrun and Craterhoof Behemoth are the easy ones. Also maybe a Concordant Crossroads and Heritage Druid for explosiveness. Everything else looks sweet. I count 66 cards here so that leaves(hah) you with 34 lands? I'd maybe go up to 37.

You can consider adding in cards like Helix Pinnacle for a win con when you have a surplus of mana to dump into. Or another way you can go is adding in Paradox Engine so you can untap your Overgrown Battlement or Axebane Guardian . That can also lead you to mill a lot of people with your Doorkeeper .
Hope that helps!

It seems like the deck quite a lot. A problem I see with Akroma's Memorial is that it costs 7 mana, and that is a lot! I would suggest Concordant Crossroads , which grants all creatures haste, and it's way cheaper mana-wise, for just one green

denis1198 I have tried Instill Energy , Woodland Bellower and all the aforementioned cards, aside from Rhonas the Indomitable . Fierce Empath is a dead draw in many games and is not efficient enough to net wins: a three mana tutor is not something we need, particularly when it only fetches Great Oak Guardian (within my list). Hall of Gemstone is a strictly defensive option for a different deck. Though it's ability is nice, many players will be operating with a series of rocks to net the mana sufficient to play counter magic. Also, it's a World Enchantment; part of our win condition is using Concordant Crossroads to finish our opponents off on Turn 3. HoG will immediately be replaced. Fauna Shaman is a lesser Survival of the Fittest , which we operate with. While Shaman can be tutored for, you can see how it's counter-productive to simply obtaining the card we actually need with all of our Creature Tutors. Primal Command in many cases is an overly-expensive Tutor. The loop with it & Eternal Witness is just as unnecessary to our success as the Beast Within loop I explained here. It's what you would consider a "Win More," while we're only really looking to "Win." Priest of Titania is insurance for Selvala and strictly Plan B. She's extraneous in our deck list. Our game should be centered around using Selvala for victory. While her potential to ramp (in some deck versions) is decent, it is no substitute for Selvala. Between all of our current options for ramp, sticking with Plan A - casting & using Selvala - is always the priority and easily achievable. Dosan the Falling Leaf would be a much better consideration to fit into the deck, or Prowling Serpopard , as either of these (particularly Dosan) will help us Combo out on our turn and do so unaffected by our foes. However, even these are wanting in the list currently... I've tried about everything. Rhonas is fine, but would only act as a substitute for Wayward Swordtooth who is superior. The Swordtooth's ability to play an additional land can help us achieve the mana we need in a given turn to go off, via utilities such as Quirion Ranger & Scryb Ranger . Bouncing the Forest and being able to play them again is a larger benefit than paying three mana to net +2/+0 from Rhonas. Those synergies are more valuable to consider. Thanks for the comments/considerations!

Hey, I appreciate the inputs!
I agree with Staff of Domination as it is used in quite a few combo decks, but it's a fairly expensive buy so I imagine it'll be a while before this deck sees any of them.
Krosan Grip is a good call, I'll likely sideboard them to swap out in case Split Second becomes required, but I think I'll leave Naturalize in for now since even 1 less mana allows for it to be more viable early-game before most of my key elves are in play
4x Wellwisher is almost certainly overkill, almost by design with all of the 'elf count' cards I use. Currently my chief defense early-on is just to eat all attack damage to save/protect elves until the deck can really explode. Generally, this only occurs for 1-2 turns, but ensuring I have at least one of these guys out has been a real crutch. I agree though that after a certain point it becomes almost moot. Still, should I need extra cards to drop, 1 or 2 of these could probably stand to go depending on what I get to replace them.
I've been looking at making some changes to this deck, so you've definitely given me some thinking points. It looks like I'm reaching a point where the only way to improve on the deck is to start dropping significant cash on it, and while that's not completely restrictive to me, it definitely will definitely add quite a bit of time onto how long it'll take to acquire everything. (A general browse indicates I'll likely even need to shop multiple sites on some of the pricier/higher demand ones; most sites only have 1-2 copies in stock without getting into the realm of foils and such on things like Staff of Domination and Concordant Crossroads.)
