MTGMad2 on Elves of Rivendell

also Cryptolith Rite seems a bit pointless all in all though a really good deck upvote from me

SynergyBuild on Ashaya is REAALLLLLY good

3 weeks ago

Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is better than you think. I promise you, it's better.

You think a 5 mana creature variant of mono-green Cryptolith Rite that is massive is all? Nope.

First off it's bigger than massive, like, a lot bigger. It is monstrous in many decks. Ever seen a lot of lands and creatures out? I see a 40/40 Ashaya. I wonder if Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Soul's Majesty, Rishkar's Expertise, Traverse the Outlands, or Overwhelming Stampede would be good?

But even in a deck where it isn't that big, Ashaya is REAALLLLLLY good.

Worried about Cyclonic Rift, not on your creatures! Grasp of Fate, Abrupt Decay, Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Oblivion Ring, etc. all are useless against it.

Not to mention... combos. Oh yeah, so... Quirion Ranger is an interesting card. It lets you bounce a forest to untap a creature.

Idk, what can a creature that's untapped do with Ashaya, Soul of the Wild? Oh, tap for mana. I wonder what's a forest that we can bounce? Oh, Quirion Ranger.

Yep, just those two go infinite together, only infinite casts, as you net even, but a Glimpse of Nature, Beast Whisperer, Primordial Sage, or Soul of the Harvest and you'll be just fine. Remember, it's a land that keeps entering, landfall infinitely, with a Lotus Cobra, Tireless Tracker, or similar, and you'll be well on your way to an easy win.

Have a Priest of Titania? Now you have infinite mana.

(Scryb Ranger can do similarly, another super easy combo)

Arbor Elf... yep, infinite untaps of itself, one Krosan Restorer and a medium graveyard, one Ley Weaver, or one Argothian Elder and you have infinite untaps and mana.

Of course, there is more, Nissa, Who Shakes the World, Timber Protector, etc.

Also, remember you can run Oblivion Stone, and all the rest too.

That's a lot of damage. Not to mention:

  1. This card can be both a powerful commander or mana ramp/combo engine in decks.

  2. Nissa, Who Shakes the World, Nissa, Worldwaker, etc. affect forests, and this is easily one of the best ways to get a ton of forests.

  3. Titania, Steward of Argoth and other lands -> creatures style effects (think Rampaging Baloth) allow you to get a to get a ton of value from your creatures, reusing them for 4/4s and 5/3s.

  4. Liege of the Tangle. Easy, clean reason why this card is hilariously fun!

  5. Howl of the Night Pack, Boundless Realms, etc. There are a million of these combos, literally go look. I'm not even trying.

  6. You can Leyline of Abundance for more value too, didn't mention that. Was gonna click start a new thread and just thought of it. Gonna click it now before I think of ten more!

Inkmoth on Yeva Draw-Grow

Alright guys, this one is super spicy and WILD as hell to me, but I am considering Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, swapping Thousand-Year Elixir for it. Here's why:

Thoughts guys, cause this is starting to look like a shoe-in. Posted again to kickstart the discussion since T/O went down and I didn't even see l13199l's response (which I agree with).

AND to note that Quirion Ranger can bounce/reset itself with Ashaya on the field. This in mind, I think I am going to remove Cloudstone Curio OR Umbral Mantle for Scryb Ranger. Thoughts?

P.S. More SPICE!!

Earthcraft + Ashaya, Soul of the Wild + Quirion Ranger go infinite on their own!

Cmi1103 on Another Rhys Deck

1 month ago

Rhys is amazing! Just a few recommendations that I think are way to fun to play that I run in my Rhys deck 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens): Seedborn Muse is so broken here. Champion of Lambholt makes everything basically unblockable and becomes huge itself. Throne of the God-Pharaoh works as an alternate wincon if you can't win through combat damage. Card Draw is also hard to come by with Rhys so I would recommend Skullclamp and Huatli, Radiant Champion. Cryptolith Rite is also insane for mana.
