Crushing Canopy Discussion

Nice list, I've been looking to do something similar to abuse Vivien, Champion of the Wilds . For the sideboard, have you considered Kraul Harpooner in place of Atzocan Archer ? The Harpooner will kill more fliers than the archer and comes out for one less mana. I'm leaning toward including the Harpooners in the main deck; I'll share my list once I have something playable. I am going deeper into the adapt creatures, Incubation Druid and Growth-Chamber Guardian , to make full use of the play-at-instant speed that green doesn't get very often.

Some secondary options for fliers I've had good experience with in this meta are Crushing Canopy since it also answers enchantments and Sagittars' Volley as it can clean a board of spirit tokens as well as one large body. However, those last two are not creatures which is probably more important in your deck.

Also remember that in War of the Spark, they have already spoiled Teyo, the Shieldmage . Makes 2 walls for and gives you hexproof. So, pretty good in this deck! I love this deck and have been playing it since the beginning of Allegiance. It's just so much fun to mess with people. They usually think you're new to the game haha. "Look at this scrub playing defenders..." When those same people lose, they always look like they have to re-evaluate their life choices.

Murphy, Arcades is your win condition and both of your win conditions (Arcades and High Alert) are easily removed right now. Vivien Reid , Crushing Canopy , Mortify , etc. And as a draw engine and win con, arcades draws removal. It hurts to have one in hand and another on the field but since he's 5 power and legendary, generally your opponents have to expend a lot of resources to kill him. When he gets killed, it feels awesome to immediately play him on your next turn. I run 4 in my deck. If you only run 3, then the odds of hitting him with Adventurous Impulse go down dramatically and now your method of getting to your win con quickly is far less effective since it doesn't hit High Alert.

The other thing I would say would be to swap Snubhorn Sentry to Resolute Watchdog . Able to block very favorably from turn 1 and his effect allows you protect Arcades for . This little dog has saved Arcades more than I am willing to admit.

Thanks for the feedback djnewellmit,

Yes, at the moment the combination of Reclamation Sage , Tower Defense and Vivien Reid does the trick. I am sure that at some stage I will find another card that I really want in the side-board, which will most likely mean replacing 2 of the above with Crushing Canopy . At this point in time I find Tower Defense to be more versatile than Sagittars' Volley and it is cheaper to cast. I suppose that if 1/1 token creature decks become popular again then Sagittars' Volley becomes a must.

You're welcome!

I see that you're already looking at the spoilers for WAR. I'm very excited about the proliferate elves.

Another sideboard option I'd suggest is Crushing Canopy . I see you have Tower Defense to play against flyers (and possibly save against a Deafening Clarion ). Canopy gives you an answer to flying threats, while also giving you another answer against problematic enchantments. My Canopy has proven useful especially against many white (mono-white, WB, Jeskai) decks that to bring in Lyra Dawnbringer and Ixalan's Binding from the sideboard. However, you may find that Canopy is too redundant with Reclamation Sage and Vivien Reid . I've even considered Sagittars' Volley , especially if anyone in your meta is running a WB afterlife/spirits deck.

If possible I'd consider swapping out the Crushing Canopy s plus the multani's or something for a couple copies of both Thrashing Brontodon and Kraul Harpooner . Just a way to cover the same bases while adding to your critical mass of chonkers. New Vivien, Champion of the Wilds might be a sweet include in this also when she becomes available.

That said I think the best avenue for improvement would be the sideboard. There aren't any popular decks that are gonna have consistent targets for Broken Bond or Plummet when it matters and I'm not sure what matchups Silhana Wayfinder and the twins are coming in against. Cards like Thrash / Threat , Sorcerous Spyglass , Shapers' Sanctuary and Find / Finality seem like decent sideboard options.

If wildcards are in short supply you might want to consider the following: - Atzocan Archer (decent against mono tempo+ weenie sometimes) - Colossal Majesty (winmoorish but fun) - Diamond Mare - Dryad Greenseeker (card advantage) - Kraul Foragers - Kraul Harpooner - Thrashing Brontodon

1119Jace_Beleren, I see that you have very clear the cards that you are going to put in the sideboard. My additional suggestions for the sideboard are 2 Murmuring Mystic , 2 Biogenic Ooze , 2 Rekindling Phoenix , and 2 or 3 Crushing Canopy .

About the creatures for the side that I mentioned, I have to say that you need 4 creatures in the sideboard in any combination of them like alternative Win/Cards. You may put 2 Rekindling Phoenix and 2 Biogenic Ooze . Or 1 Rekindling Phoenix , 1 Biogenic Ooze and 2 Murmuring Mystic ...

I hope that helps you!

That's an interesting take on the deck on this deck! I, personally, would consider moving Domri, Chaos Bringer into mainboard and instead moving Sunder Shaman into sideboard. Also you are lacking protection from fliers, other than the Lightning Strike in the sideboard. Does it feel like this deck is fast enough to outpower Izzet Phoenix or Mono Red with Rekindling Phoenix ? I would probably fit in a couple Crushing Canopy into sideboard and maybe Kraul Harpooner into mainboard. I see the Aggressive Mammoth doing a lot of work by giving the necessary trample, but in matchups vs Esper control or Nexus decks I would rather put Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma which gives every creature trample too! and +1/+1 if they are big and it only costs . If you even have means I would squish in a couple Carnage Tyrant somewhere since he is lower in price right now. Let me know what you think.
