Druid's Deliverance Discussion
1 week ago
Hey, I made one of these populate decks!
A few questions:
First Question: How is this aggro?
I mean you run no 1 drops, and your fastest kill is turn 5, and that isn't super likely.
Second Question: Why 4 Temple Gardens
With Wooded Foothills or Flooded Strands, you only need 2-3 Temple Gardens for required fixing, and Horizon Canopy deserves a spot or two in this list. Also the Grove of the Guardians will never really see play unless you are in the midrange mirror against Abzan or something. Maybe sideboard them, run some Horizon Canopy, drop a Temple Garden drop in another Fetchland, call your landbase a day.
Third Question: Why no dorks?
The best plays of populate lists are turn one Noble Hierarch curving into turn two Wayfaring Temple, into turn three 2xCall of the Conclave (One one Call of the Conclave and one Selesnya Charm on 2/2 token), swinging for 5 with Wayfaring Temple (4 creatures+exalted trigger), then copy a Call of the Conclave, turn 4 drop a few creatures (dorks, tokens, whatever), swing for 15, win turn 4. You can also achieve this with a hand of Intangible Virtues.
Fourth (And Final) Question: Why do you run Trostani, Selesnya's Voice?
Against Combo, or aggro, you are dead before you untap with her, against control, she will die before then, or won't resolve. To be honest, the same is true for Advent of the Wurm. With dorks, it woul be possible to untap with them, but since you don't run any they appear useless. Wilt-Leaf Liege has a similar problem, but I actually like him, because if you swing the turn you drop him, he doesn't need to untap to win a game. Otherwise I find him pretty bad, and would drop him for Dryad Militants that at least stop storm, TurboFog, or Snapcaster Mage, along with Life from the Loam, and a handful of readily played modern staples. Druid's Deliverance actually falls into this category of "cards that won't matter in modern", but I'd be lying if there wouldn't be a deck that could use it, Turbo-Fog (which is not this deck, and Turbo-Fog is normally trash).

Hmmm... Druid's Deliverance sounds pretty neat, but I don't know what to take out. After some play testing I find that I can generate tons of mana, but generally prefer to need more forests. I swapped out one Elvish Mystic with Civic Wayfinder for that purpose. I like Gilt-Leaf Archdruid but unsure of how to make it work with the already existent saproling swarm of doom.

You may want to cleanup some of the creature types that you have - especially if you want to include Gilt-Leaf Archdruid. For mana, look for: Devoted Druid, Druid of the Cowl. Greenweaver Druid may be a little more difficult to use, but, it's good bang for the buck, and card-efficient.
For dual-purpose cards that would help with the saprolings: Druid's Deliverance.

I really like this list. I'd give a little consideration to Druid's Deliverance Sundering Growth Alive // Well Rhys the Redeemed Second Harvest Wayfaring Temple and Hooded Hydra and Triumph of the Hordes but you have most of the good stuff there.
When you choose to run green, you need to look at the tools and synergies it opens up- Most G/W token lists I've seen have been splinter-twin esque Village Bell-Ringer/Presence of Gond combo lists ruinning Glittering Wish. Certainly, a light combo subtheme is very much an option with the variety of token-combo tools in green, taking advantage of Chord of Calling and Sprout Swarm

I added Druid's Deliverance to the maybe board. Thanks! Now I need to find the playset I think I have somewhere.

I don't imagine you plan on straying from the mono-green set-up. But if you do, Slimefoot, the Stowaway. As i was posting this it stated you have already considered it, sweet ;)

That looks pretty good now
A few things:
You shouldnt play to many creatures with more than 2 power because you cant hit them with CoCo. Regal Caracal is in addition hard to cast with 20 lands and you also dont want to tick up a vial that high so you should cut it.
There are a few sideboard choices that are subobtimal.Authority is only good against other creature decks and you board presence is pretty big so you shouldnt need it. Same is true for Druid's Deliverance. Sundering groath has nearly no value because you only have small tokens. Naturalize or Nature's Claim would defenitely better
