Devoted Druid Discussion

First off, Oust is really nice in the Burn matchup because you can loop it with Snapcaster Mage . Oust on Snappy into drawing Snappy and flashing back Oust is big game, and can even win you the game. Six life is two burn spells.
Second, Condemn 's requirement for the creature to be attacking does nothing against creature-based combo. While admittedly it is a game-ender against Death's Shadow , it feels super bad to hold up Condemn when there's a Devoted Druid sitting across the table.
Appreciate the comment!

Hey hyold I think that if you are going the Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies combo route, you should definitely run Finale of Devastation or some combination of it with Chord of Calling . I would not suggest running more than four copies of the two combined. I think that Chord being an instant provides an advantage over the Finale against decks like U/W Control that tap out to play Teferi or a boardwipe/cryptic.
At this point I am purely G/B so I am not going to run that combo. Up until about a month ago I ran an Abzan list that splashed white purely for sideboard cards. However, the damage taken from the fetches and shocks required to run that mana-base caused me to lose some close races so I changed my list.
After switching to this list, my win percentage has improved and I doubt I will move back. At this point I am just tuning the sideboard to maximize the effectiveness in my local meta.
Thanks for the comments and let me know if you have any further questions!

Hello, i play a very similar deck and I was testing Finale of Devastation . What is your opinion using this card in this deck? Maybe Finale with Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies (changing the mana base).

I see Devoted Druid as a mana-dork+ meaning she’s there for ramp but also has some combo potential unlike other mana dorks. I’ve already mentioned her in the Primer as part of a path to infinite tokens with Ghave and Cathars' Crusade . Basically if we can continue putting +1/+1 counters on her to negate her -1/-1 counters, we can reach infinite mana. We might actually be able to use her with Ghave and Doubling Season for infinite mana tokens, but we also might need another piece. I’d have to sit down and work through that one, however I think we can net a +1/+1 counter on the druid indefinitely.
We should be able to get infinite mana with her and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . If we keep tapping her, she’ll kill herself and come back with a +1/+1 counter over and over again. I should actually add that one to the list because I hadn’t considered it before.
She’s not in this deck, but you could use Melira, Sylvok Outcast who also combos with our persist creatures. The only reason I don’t include her is because I don’t think she synergizes enough with the rest of the deck to make her worth the slot. However it’s an option.
Ivy Lane Denizen can replenish our Druid, but we’d need another piece to combo with Ghave and keep a loop going.
You have to be creative here, but as long as we can find ways to put counters on the Druid, she has excellent synergy. Otherwise she’s good ramp. I like that she can play multiple roles which is why she’s on the list. Play around and see what you come up with. I’d love to add newly discovered interactions to the Primer.

The list looks fine for the most part. I’d consider swapping Skirge Familiar for Olivia's Dragoon or if you want a non creature alternative Chain of Smog can work. I find the familiar is typically a bit too expensive and the mana he generates is typically unnecessary when we can loop petals/rituals. I’d also consider swapping Devoted Druid or Lotus Cobra for Wall of Roots due to it being able to turn infinite black into infinite green with Necromancy and Culling the Weak .
Here’s a link to the gitrog discord they should be able to give more advice. https://discord.gg/yegyWs

There was a line using the following: Hermit Druid , Deathrite Shaman , and Mogis's Marauder , giving the other two haste, tapping them to activate Druid, running no basics so you flip your deck into the graveyard, sacrificing all of them to flashback Dread Return to reanimate Necrotic Ooze .
Then you use Wall of Roots ' ability on Ooze, Blighted Bat to give it haste, then activate Devoted Druid 's and Channeler Initiate 's abilities over and over for infinite mana, use Walking Ballista from the graveyard infinitely and win.

I think Mogg Fanatic is better than Cultist because you can cast Fanatic and use it to shoot down a hatebear or mana dork like birds. Also, you call this deck "Budget", but you play Mana Crypt and not Nature's Will , which comboes with Najeela and also taps down opponent's lands. In addition, I think the ideal ooze combo is Devoted Druid , Channeler Initiate , Blighted Bat or the new one with the infinitely better creature type, and Walking Ballista because it plays less cards that are bad on their own (just blighted bat compared to kiki-jiki, cultist, and anger).
