PookandPie on Ghave, Guru of Spores EDH ☠the FUNGUS AMONG US!

Devoted Druid would be a great choice because it ramps and provides another infinite combo with Ghave, Guru of Spores and Cathars' Crusade because -1/-1 and +1/+1 counters cancel each other out.

That might help you more than Anointer Priest who only really gains life and can't kill other players like Zulaport Cutthroat/Blood Artist. More mana is great, and a method of making infinite tokens is... even greater, lol.

Since I already posted my edh in the other I guess I'll respond here since I used to use hapatra :)

Viridian Longbow is useful Devoted Druid, and Quillspike if you want to go for the infinite combo,Vhati il-Dal is hilarious in a hapatra deck. I recommend trying him out same with Throne of the God-Pharaoh

I don't think you understand modern as a format, unless you can overwhelm Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and his infinite swarm, Path to Exile is useful, same goes for a Wurmcoil Engine and it's babies, or if you ever want to cast a spell chosen by a Meddling Mage.

Sure, this deck may be able to beat a 2/1, but if you want to stop Dark Confidant from overwhelming you with card advantage, pack yourself a couple Path to Exiles before you get beat.

Decks in the metagame that Path to Exile is useful against:

5 Color Humans (Meddling Mage, Dark Confidant, Mantis Rider)

R/B Hollowed One (Everything, they want it recurred, now it is in exile)

Jund (Dark Confidant, Tarmogoyf)

Mono-Green Tron (Ulamog, ceaseless hunger, World Breaker, Wurmcoil Engine)

U/R Gift's Storm (Baral, Chief of Compliance, Goblin Electromancer)

Affinity (Whatever creature they alpha strike with)

Burn (Eidolon of the Great Revel, Grim Lavamancer)

Grixis Death's Shadow (Death's Shadow, Gurmag Angler, Tasigur, the Golden Fang)

Eldrazi Tron (Matter Reshaper, Thought-Knot Seer, Reality Smasher, Endbringer, Wurmcoil Engine, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger)

Bogles (Dryad Arbor, Kor Spiritdancer)

U/W Control (Wall of Omens)

Land Destruction G/R (Courser of Kruphix, Tireless Tracker, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Inferno Titan)

Jeskai Control (Spell Queller, Pia and Kiran Nalaar)

Mardu Pyromancer (Young Pyromancer, Bedlam Reveler)

Scapeshift (Primeval Titan)

Ad Nauseam (Laboratory Maniac, they lose they next turn off of an Angel's Grace)

Counters Company (Devoted Druid, Vizier of Remedies, Kitchen Finks)

Grishoalbrand (Griselbrand, Borborygmos Enraged, Worldspine Wurm)

Amulet Combo (Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Courser of Kruphix, Primeval Titan)

Living End (Archfiend of Ifnir mostly, but any of their creatures should help slow down their explosion of creatures)

Infect (Self Explanatory, any of their creatures and they are doomed)

Ironworks Combo (Kill their Scrap Trawler, and they lose)

Welp, that about wraps up my reasons why path is so dang good, but I guess I'll share some more:

It isn't rare to have Path to Exile be named the best removal in modern, next to Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push as it's contenders, it exiles, unlike either, and is unrestricted removal, some decks splash white just to play it, and you don't play it when it is your only color it looks stupid to say "Oh, I'll trample over all of the creatures it could hit", when your creatures are smaller than many (even after buffs and accounting for double strike) and they wouldn't block the others.

Creatures aren't removal (until they are, like Nekrataal), and Path to Exile is, please don't think removal is only for blockers or attackers.

chadsansing on Not sure what to call it, so I'll take suggestions

Maybe some of these?

  • Curse of Exhaustion
  • Thaumatic Compass
  • Thunderstaff
  • Koskun Falls
  • Protector of the Hekma
  • Solitary Confinement
  • Revel in Riches

I think you can find either more efficient or less expensive ways to pillow-fort. Ideally, you want a global or recurring effect without a recurring cost. Curse will bring hate from whomever you target, but a global replacement effect like Rule of Law keeps you from comboing. Revel is better in decks with other artifacts-matter win conditions like Brass's Bounty, Mechanized Production, and different colorless token producers.

You might also include Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies to combo off of Helix Pinnacle. The old Melira, Sylvok Outcast, + Kitchen Finks might be fun here, too, especially with an Aetherflux Reservoir.

Play around and see what's fun :)

seshiro_of_the_orochi is right Devoted Druid is rendered pointless with Solemnity out at least as infinite mana he is still a mana dork just not as good.

The is a really cool Knightfall deck that just place 4th in a recent Grand Prix you can find it on you should check it out!!

@10HangTen The Devoted Druid combo works, because Melira, Sylvok Outcast doesn't say you can't try to put counters on creatures. It says that no counters are put on creatures, as a replacement effect. So you'll pay the activation cost of Devoted Druid as usual, and then Melira replaces one -1/-1 counter with zero -1/-1 counters. You can also play Black Sun's Zenith while you have Melira in play, even though the card clearly states that it puts -1/-1 counters on all creatures, including your own. But as long as you have Melira, the counters are replaced by zero counters.

I'm pretty sure you can't activate Devoted Druid with solemnity out as you can't pay the activation cost.

Great take on what is probably the strongest version of the archetype (I still haven't been impressed with the Devoted Druid combo decks. They look fun, but not strictly better). One question: have you considered Scryb Ranger? I've been running a mono-green version with 2 of the little faeries. I actually fit one in place of a land since it combos so well as a land replacement, and it's essentially a 5th/6th Elvish Archdruid in most cases (not to mention having flash, flying, and protection from blue).
