Concordant Crossroads Discussion
1 day ago
My first recommendation is Berserk . This is ideal for one-shotting the hell out of someone, although the sac at the end does seem costly unless you're confident you can re-resolve Grunn.
My second recommendation is Concordant Crossroads accompanied by some dorks. I feel that almost every green deck, if not EVERY green deck, benefits from running at least Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves and Llanowar Elves . Adding Arbor Elf with things like Utopia Sprawl or Wild Growth makes for even more mana. Birds of Paradise is also viable in mono-green, but is less good than in multi-colored decks. Landing a turn one dork means you can cast a turn two Kodama's Reach or Cultivate . Furthermore, if Grunn is repeatedly countered and/or removed, the dorks can hold equipment and swing in.
I do not think the Urza's lands are very good in EDH. This is because there is only one of each in 99 cards; I tried playing them once, and in the months I had playing the deck, I never assembled tron without a LOT of unnecessary effort.
Finally, if you play in a blue-heavy meta, Carpet of Flowers is always a powerhouse.

Thank you so much Skinken for bringing Savor the Moment to my attention. I didn't know that card existed. This deck hungers for giving it's creatures haste when it goes off. I had tested out Concordant Crossroads in the past and never was fully happy with it. I have ordered a Savor the Moment and it will be going in the deck as soon as it arrives. At worse Savor the Moment is a blue 3 CMC Explore and at best it wins you the game.
Believe it or not, but you are not the first to suggest cutting Planar Portal for Planar Bridge . I would be inclined to agree with you if I wasn't running Seedborn Muse , Alchemist's Refuge , and Leyline of Anticipation . This deck plays more like a combo deck then your normal Simic big creature Timmy deck. Being able to fetch any response to any situation on your opponent's turn is a dream come true. If they don't force you to answer something you can fetch a combo piece and play it. Now you might think getting Planar Portal , Seedborn Muse , and Alchemist's Refuge / Leyline of Anticipation into play at the same time might be a bit challenging. However thanks to Genesis Wave this is not as hard as you think. As long as you hit Planar Portal and one other piece Genesis Wave typically gives you enough lands to fetch and play the last part of the combo. Planar Portal has won me enough games for me to never consider cutting it. The card just has way too much flexibility.
Yes Disallow is better than Voidslime . Thing is I own a Voidslime and don't own a Disallow however I have never found the mana cost to be preventive of me casting Voidslime ... Also I like the art and flavor of Voidslime better (call it personal tastes)...
I have tested out Storm Cauldron in this deck granted it was when this deck was not as good as it is now. However even in this deck it is very hard to play around it. To me Mana Breach is the perfect balance of slowing opponents down and helping me hit landfall triggers.
It is possible to get infinite mana in this deck but I have never had it happen. Stroke of Genius and Blue Sun's Zenith are much better suited to decks where the main goal is to achieve infinite mana and in my opinion they aren't that helpful to this deck.
Thank you for taking the time to comment on my deck and give your recommendations. You are truly a godsend for suggesting Savor the Moment .

Concordant Crossroads could be replaced with Savor the Moment . Savor is often overlooked because it doesnt grant haste, but it gets rid of summoning sickenss. I would argue for your deck it migt be even better since it also acts as an Explore that untaps your creatures.
Planar Portal seems very very bad. A 12 mana tutor is not worth it unless you use it in an infinite combo with extra turn spells like Nexus of Fate . I have played Planar Bridge for a while in mono white though, and i've been very pleased with it. As soon as they let the ability resolve you are free to find any combo piece you might want. If you really need a 10+ mana tutor, I would suggest Bridge over Portal.
Storm Cauldron is a gross card, and your deck even has synergy with it. I play it with little to no synergy and I have great success with it.

Evry1sfavteddy Thanks for these ideas! I like Concordant Crossroads idea because green usually doesn't have haste so often I play out my stuff but then can't kill anyone till next turn and pray for no board wipes. Definitely want to add once I have the budget for it

Glimpse of Nature is another great way to storm off. Temur Sabertooth breaks the tribal theme but gives you another way to protect your creatures and a way to ensure you can continue storming off by bouncing a creature to recast for the draw trigger. Concordant Crossroads gives all of your creatures haste so you can alpha strike after Genesis Wave ing your whole deck.

This mono green EDH deck is well out of date and I could use some help updating it to not only be legal but competitive
I feel like the base of the deck is still pretty strong and it only needs a few minor updates here and there, so any and all inputs would be greatly appreciate.

Sound like a broken record, but have you considered Concordant Crossroads ? It's a double edge sword, but you might be able to get a slip advantage if you hold it until you can get a free counter swing.

McToters a few of the cards you mentioned I'd already looked at and considered in the past but there are a few in there that I'll definitely have to consider so thanks for suggesting.
Another card that I don't think I will include is Unwinding Clock . as you said I don't have many artifacts I think most of the time it will just be a dead card in my hand. And even when I can use it, I don't think untapping 1 or 2 things for 4 mana is really worth it when I can untap everything with Seedborn Muse , or Quest for Renewal . I've also decided not to use Magewright's Stone , or Magewright's Stone because they're a little too slow.
However Thousand-Year Elixir is a gem of a card and I can't believe I never thought to put it in this deck. The untapping ability is decent, but the added on pseudo- Concordant Crossroads effects make it very good. The only problem is it's gotten a bit more pricey as of recent so I'll have to weigh it's costs to it's contributions.
The combos you mentioned are a little problematic for my purposes. Because my combos are able to be entirely fetched up by Yisan I don't see myself using these too much to be worth putting in the deck. That being said Seeker of Skybreak is absolutely another auto-include. Not only is it a combo piece fetchable by Yisan but enables combos to happen much faster. That's not even mentioning the fact that it's only 30¢! Of all the cards you recommended this is the one that my deck needs the most.
Anyways thanks for the suggestions I'm always looking for ways to make my deck better and having other people recommend cards is probably the best way.
