Doran, the Siege Tower Discussion
1 week ago
Thx for suggestions, you are right I'm not trying to make a Big Abzan with mechanic aroud Doran, the Siege Tower and Assault Formation. This is supposed to be a midrange with some toolbox thx to Traverse the Ulvenwald.

New set appears rather weak for modern.
http://mythicspoiler.com/rix/cards/slaughterthestrong.html could be a 1 sided 3 mana board whipe for Doran, the Siege Tower decks.
http://mythicspoiler.com/rix/cards/paladinofatonement.html I think would be good in Soul Sisters.
and well... New Sphinx in U/W Control.

So there are three versions of Treefolk that you could play.
Mono Green which leans on lands and Dungrove Elder to pressure decks and curve out.

Did the second test. Worked just like you thought! Spellskite kept Doran, the Siege Tower alive, and the rest of the deck did its job wonderfully. Against my deck it was a 2/1, in favor of the treefolk. Man, the ability to just tutor up anything in the deck with a one drop makes this deck's experience SO consistent. +1 from me for sure. Plus fetch lands! Me and my noob self needs to get me a couple.

Trying to determine my final deck as my meta seems to have disbanded. Problem is I have several projects going that aren't finished which will end up being melted for this last one. Trying to do something different from my other decks for a little variety but if they rely on the same strategy then that's okay. Budget should be kept around $15 per card max since this is my last hooray so to speak. However, I do own most of the staples so any suggestion will be considered. Here are the decks I currently run:
Decks I Currently Run
Purphoros, God of the Forge: my main man. Token spam and by far my favorite deck.
Karametra, God of Harvests: big stompies and land ramp.
Rafiq of the Many: enchantress voltron. Though even an enchantress can be suited up and work just as well should Rafiq keep eating removal.
Karlov of the Ghost Council: extort/lifegain with a touch of voltron and combo.
Breya, Etherium Shaper: my most competitive (aside from Gitrog and Purph) combo artifact deck
Edric, Spymaster of Trest: 1 drop evasive goodness
Brago, King Eternal: I've ran him very hardcore stax. While effective no one wanted to play against him so I've since lessened the stax effects.
Decks I'm Considering/Have Partly Built
Doran, the Siege Tower: big butts matter. Lots of Meekstone effects or power based wraths. What I have built seems inconsistent probably in part to vanilla critters with high toughness. That's great if Doran is out but otherwise not so great. I Don't want to go voltron bc I have Rafiq and Karlov nor do I want a good stuff build as that gets rather pricey.
Seton, Krosan Protector: ramp with big stomp finishers. What I have built seems consistent but you may have to dig to find a win con. Stax effects through Hall of Gemstone/Ritual of Subdual. Only concern is it is similar to Karametra aside from using creature ramp as opposed to land ramp. However, the synergy is pretty impressive and can lead to explosive plays.
Talrand, Sky Summoner: lots of bounce but entirely commander dependent. Could go Polymorph tucking a drake with use of Proteus Staff to whip out bombs. No real fast win con though. I've built this before and it was hilarious but it ended up getting pieced apart for other decks.
Or any other ideas anyone else has. The above 3 decks are mostly built already just needs finishing.

Azdranax can you give examples? I'm very curious to which ones you are referring. However, for those that come to mind, redundancy is always a good thing in EDH. Yes, sometimes it is a dead draw, but if you play in a certain playgroup that keeps destroying your stuff or countering your spells, being able to get the same effect later, or right after, is beneficial.
BurningBlazeFlame - Thanks for the comment and upvote! I don't think Sapling of Colfenor is the way to go because I want a deck that is able to play defensively as well as aggressively with the same cards. Until Doran, the Siege Tower hits the battlefield, my big butts can stall my opponents from hitting me, then all of a sudden I'm swinging in for 30+ damage. Sapling absolutely has a great effect, but all he is doing is filtering your top deck somewhat to add in extra creatures to your hand. I believe Doran is the better way to go for the theme and value that I wanted. Thanks for the thought.
