Deadwood Treefolk Discussion

There are decent ideas and I'm happy you decided to make your first deck a Treefolk brew. There are however quite alot to work on here even if it's meant just for casual games. I don't know if you've ever looked into any deck building guides, but you mana curve is really important to be in line with your lands and ramp. Now your curve is super dependant on LUCK, which is not great. Unless you have consistent ways to cheat out your excessive amounts of 6 drops, you shouldn't have that many or they will clog your hand. I'll list a few semi-budget changes that will help.

Lurking Predators could be swapped with Descendants' Path. It won't net you as many procs, but you can cast it on turn 3.

Go up to full playset on Treefolk Harbinger, cause it tutors up any creature you need from your deck and that allows you to go down on the quantity of big threats.

Emerald Medallion is nice on mono color, but the heavyness really calls for more Bosk Bannerets or Medallions. Medallion is better when it's in your opening hand, since it drops topdecked Bosk to a 1-drop, but Bosk is tutorable with Harbinger (Might not matter which you run more of, so go with your gut.)

I really like Verdeloth the Ancient and Fungal Sprouting, so you could switch some other lesser 6 drop for another Verdeloth.

These couple swaps helps with consistency:

+2 Treefolk Harbinger | -2 Deadwood Treefolk

+1 Emerald Medallion and +1 Bosk Banneret | -2 Orchard Warden

+2 Battlewand Oak | -2 Kalonian Twingrove

+2 Assault Formation | -2 Bog-Strider Ash

You don't need full playsets of any big drops if you go with 4 Harbingers.

All the greatest treefolks are ridiculously expensive, but if you ever want to invest little by little and keep your Tribal/Zoo theme, I suggest looking into my primer here Treefolkdancing my way to competitive scene!.

Hey,

I am always willing to help new and established deckbuilders evolve and finetune their decks. I play a Doran too, which is still on private, cause my meta likes to see how I build it :p

I looked at your list and I came up with the following suggestions you might want to consider:

If you need more help on this deck or any other Commander project, then give me a headsup on my wall :) Just click my name and post something on there.

It is always great to recieve an upvote on my favourite deck, which you can see here. Just click the 'Upvote' button on the left if you like what you see.

Enjoy the game!

My Suggestions:

I think your mana base is a little messy.

As for ramp in itself:

  • Gilded Lotus is amazing, but it only nets you one color of mana, which can be a bummer at times.
  • I always advocate for the use of all available signets (Simic Signet, Izzet Signet and Gruul Signet in your case), since they fix your colors in the early game and help you ramp up a bit (plus, a Sol Ring + Signet starting hand can go crazy pretty fast)
  • Thought Vessel and Mind Stone are other 2-mana artifacts with some great extra utility.

Cards I don't like/I don't find useful enough:

Other suggestions (mostly more creatures to use as a toolbox):

Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Ezuri, Claw of Progress might make good additions to your deck. Brawn and Wonder both make great cards to discard or let Sidisi, Brood Tyrant mill and get their abilities.Morbid Curiosity with some of your Grave Pact type of cards could mean a great value. Novijen, Heart of Progress seems like good deck tech. High Market is a good way for you to get a little life back. Blighted Woodland is actually better than it looks. Perpetual Timepiece helps with your self mill. Elixir of Immortality in case you go too hard on the self mill. The Gitrog Monster because he's annoying af. Nyx Weaver more graveyard manipulation. Massacre Wurm is good. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord possible win con. Gisa and Geralf need to be able to use your graveyard as a resource. Zombie Apocalypse. Deadbridge Chant let's you use your graveyard as resource.Mikaeus, the Unhallowed so good. Risen Executioner another buff on a stick. Splinterfright more self mill. Evanescent Intellect let's sidisi mill without swinging. Extractor Demon could give you self mill your help you mill out an opponent.Mirror-Mad Phantasm and Hermit Druid both synergize well with sidisi. Laboratory Maniac as a safety net if you go too hard. Empty the Pits 4 mana plus your whole graveyard at an opponents end step could be stupid crazy. Eternal Witness grabbing what you need from your graveyard. Blood Artist makes all of those toekns even scarier as they are 2 point swings no matter what. Mesmeric Orb just have everyone mill. See the Unwritten this could do some work for you. Pharika's Mender another way to grab something from your graveyard. Deadwood Treefolk same as last card. Phyrexian Reclamation. Dig Through Time. Recollect. Praetor's Counsel all make your graveyard resource. Cellar Door. Eldrazi Monument. Distant Melody.Gaea's Blessing. Jarad's Orders.Unbreathing Horde. Lich Lord of Unx.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Doran, the One Who Can't Be Moved

Slagwurm Armor is pretty great. Just an equipment with a +6/+6 buff for a mere 4 colorless mana.

Treefolk Harbinger is a strong 1-drop tutor that also has a high toughness.

Silklash Spider does an incredible job of protecting you from fliers, plus it's effectively a 7/7 to boot.

Oathsworn Giant gives your entire team a massive anthem boost and vigilance, which is a really relevant ability given all your high toughness creatures.

Putrefy and Mortify are efficient, relevant spot removal. Definitely should include.

Behind the Scenes is interesting since most of your creatures have low power and skulk will make them unblockable, but Doran then assigns high damage afterwards. It also pumps your creatures in a pinch.

Cultivate and Kodama's Reach should be included to help fix your mana base; very necessary in a 3-or-more-color decklist.

Bosk Banneret ensures your high-power (or should I say, toughness) Treefolk will hit the board sooner.

Spidersilk Armor is another anthem effect with Doran, plus it gives you another way to counter fliers.

Nyx-Fleece Ram has a high toughness-to-cost ratio and buffers your life a little bit.

Deadwood Treefolk gives you a small amount of recursion, which is always useful and powerful.

Perhaps you want to make it quicker? If you did, then Terrain Elemental is a solid 3/2 for two, not all that exciting, but fast and does his job, alongside Strangleroot Geist, fast, and can take a hit! Then for three mana you have Undergrowth Champion, an absolute powerhouse of a card! Tough to answer, sends some fear your opponents way early on! If you've won the lottery recently, then Vengevine is a crazy powerful and cool four drop. He's thematic, but golly he isn't cheap. He isn't gofy expensive, but it will still leave a hole in your pocket. Then looking into the mid-range side of aggro, Whisperwood Elemental. He can fill a board, apply pressure, the all purpose dark wood that keeps your opponents guessing.

A couple of honourable mentions quickly. Carven Caryatid, because cantrips are awesome, and Tree of Redemption because it's huge and fitting. Are either good enough, or exciting enough for the deck? No, probably not, but it would be remiss of me to leave them out.

Okay, last bunch, the big guys! Let's start with the two big boys that draw you some cards, Soul of the Harvest, and Deadwood Treefolk, because sometimes you need something back, or you need to refill your hand. Now, the stand alone win cons, the game changers! Gaea's Revenge, watch the face of your opponent as you play him, control hate it when their counters don't work, and none too happy if their removal doesn't really work either! Then we have Dungroves (worse) but bigger brother, well, brothers, the Kalonian Twingroves. Big right, and two of them, which is way better than one! Then we have the Avenger of Zendikar, I mean, how powerful does a card need to be, he brings his own garden and makes it into a forest, dark, fitting, powerful, and very cool. If you aren't bothered about speed so much, then Phytotitan is super hard to deal with, he just keeps coming back. Also, once you have two on the field (not that you normally do), they feel nice replacing each other every turn. The inevitability of him fills you with the feeling of true power! And then finally, Sekki, Seasons' Guide, another guy who brings his own army, and like any great general he can absorb all his own men and pop back on the field, he true end to a game!

Anyway, just a few things to have a think about, see if any suit you.

There's some pretty cool interactions here. Using Rakshasa Vizier to get extra value out of scavenge cards is one example. I think this deck's biggest weakness is that it has a fairly high average CMC which forces you to play from behind in most games. This can be alleviated by removing big creatures with relatively non-impactful effects like Acid-Spewer Dragon or by finding cheaper alternatives to existing cards. For example, I think Zephyr Scribe could just as easily be Merfolk Looter or even Necromancer's Stockpile or Wharf Infiltrator. Similarly, Deadwood Treefolk could be replaced by Golgari Guildmage or Undertaker,
