Devoted Druid Discussion

KINGFLIPPYNIPPZ on Why did it have to be snakes?!

Gidgetimer Thanks for the suggestions! I had actually recently removed Midnight Banshee and Flourishing Defenses mostly because of their mana costs but depending on how the deck plays I may swap them back in. Quillspike is a great idea to combo with Devoted Druid to make him big enough to take someone out with one swing! And I actually didn’t even know about Nullmage Shepherd but I’ll probably end up adding it in place of one of the removal instant or sorceries being that I can get multiple uses out of her. Really appreciate the input!

Some cards I have found useful in my build that you are not currently running:

Quillspike to go with Devoted Druid

Midnight Banshee is a great recurring source of -1/-1 counters. This prevents you from attacking with your snakes because they perpetually have summoning sickness, but who attacks with their snakes.

Nullmage Shepherd is good artifact/enchantment removal.

Flourishing Defenses Hapatra effect number three.

Oloro_Magic on [Primer] - Zirda G/W Creature Toolbox

1 day ago


I wouldn't jump so quick to discount the deck, but yeah the errata definitely hurts here more than some of the other decks in the format. I'm not giving up on it yet though, not sure if I am going to continue with Zirda, the Dawnwaker as the companion in favor of integrating Devoted Druid, but I do believe Zirda, the Dawnwaker could have a spot on main, the combo is powerful, and perhaps in a Collected Company build there are legs.

Going to have to get brewing to figure it out, but we will see, regardless I think Zirda, the Dawnwaker could have a place in a creature toolbox deck which is what I will be pursuing here.

That's incorrect. :)

Let's say I have a 1/1 Necrotic Ooze and available. If that 1/1 Necrotic Ooze pays and mimics Quillspike's ability to and add +3/+3 it becomes a 4/4.

Now we can mimic Devoted Druid's ability to by adding a -1/-1 counter to our 4/4 making it a 3/3. This ability requires no mana to activate, it just needs the -1/-1 counter. We effectively gain +2/+2 every time we repeat this cycle.

Now it's this next cycle that I think you may have missed. :)

Once our Necrotic Ooze is infinitely large, we can then mimic Devoted Druid's ability to and generate . Then we can mimic Devoted Druid further and add a -1/-1 counter to it. This nets us one every time we repeat this cycle, infinitely. No other creatures required.

That said, I do have Channeler Initiate in the deck as an additional way to generate mana in the other combos so it's a great card to include!

abby315 on Meren to Nethroi

1 week ago

The above comment about sums it up for me, unless you were planning to take it in a combo or other kind of direction! Here are some good Nethroi targets that have low power but make tokens or have good effects when they enter:

Biogenic Ooze Blade Splicer Master Splicer
Maul Splicer
Sensor Splicer
Noosegraf Mob
Chittering Witch
Creakwood Liege
Akroan Horse
Deep Forest Hermit
Deranged Hermit
Nut Collector
Geist-Honored Monk
Ghave, Guru of Spores
God-Eternal Oketra
Hornet Queen
Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
Tendershoot Dryad
Trostani Discordant Trostani's Summoner

Most of the above cards create creature tokens, so you'll probably want the usual: Doubling Season, Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives if you include a lot of them.

Here are some 0-power utility creatures to consider, because they're free to reanimate if they get killed:

Arboreal Grazer
Birds of Paradise
Devoted Druid
Incubation Druid
Faeburrow Elder
Custodi Soulbinders
Embodiment of Agonies
Golgari Grave-Troll (also a great include because Dredge can fill your GY)

And you'll also want at least a few additional Mutaters in case you have Nethroi out and want to trigger it again:

Auspicious Starrix
Cavern Whisperer
Dirge Bat
Migratory Greathorn
Sawtusk Demolisher

...all seem like good includes.

Hope this gives you a good place to start and a list of interesting cards to consider. Many are very affordable. Now I kinda want to make a Nethroi deck.

Have fun!

Cloudstone Curio makes one drops have infinite ETB/cast triggers when Seton, Krosan Protector is out. (need 2 one drop creatures)

Devoted Druid, Temur Sabertooth, Leyline of Abundance, and Seton, Krosan Protector also creates infinite ETB/cast triggers on devoted druid.

Be careful when using Beast Whisperer, Glimpse of Nature, Guardian Project, and Vanquisher's Banner as you dont want to mill yourself.

Devoted Druid, Elvish Archdruid, Temur Sabertooth, Leyline of Abundance, and Seton, Krosan Protector is the standard infinite mana.

Stone-Seeder Hierophant and Elvish Pioneer also work really well with Cloudstone Curio and another 1 drop creature. This gets all lands into play untapped from your hand.

Note that after drawing your deck you will have some combination of Mobilize, Vitalize, and Benefactor's Draught. Playing all of the one-drops (and other low-cost minions) can help get you the mana to start going infinte.

lets use our deck now.

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid is a good first option, taking your opponents lands removes most of their options

Helix pinacle is noteable (you can max out to win by your next upkeep if everything else goes wrong)

We can pump up our creatures using Leyline of Abundance, giving creatures infinite +1 +1 counters

Thorn Mammoth and Vigor remove your opponents board. If they somehow have enough toughness to still be alive, you can use one of the infinite ETB combos.

Craterhoof Behemoth is the only card we have with haste, but it shouldnt matter as they wont have lands (Gilt-Leaf Archdruid), creatures (Thorn Mammoth + Vigor), artifacts or enchantments (Acidic Slime + Temur Sabertooth)

Sultai_Sir on two cards combo in casual ...

2 weeks ago

In my Sidisi combo deck, I run Nooze lines, and all the combo pieces besides one are either incredible picks for the deck on synergy alone (Necrotic Ooze), or are mana dorks to help accelerate the deck (Devoted Druid, Channeler Initiate). I say do it, but if you're pieces don't go well with the rest of the deck, and you're playing casually, don't run the combo.
