Early Harvest Discussion

crowned on Wort: the Ramp Mother of Burn

3 weeks ago

MegaMatt13, it was just an awkward game and that must be it.

I played a turn 3 Xenagos, the Reveler thanks to Search for Tomorrow, Skullclamp following later. Unfortunately clamp got removed relatively quickly before drawing cards. I could play Boundless Realms without any way of copying it - felt really weird, but ended up with 12 lands in play, decked Pyromancer's Goggles and Hour of Devastation to keep the pace of the game relatively chill. Big problem was just that I had no outlet for all the mana. In hand I still had Early Harvest and Tempt with Vengeance, the latter was utter useless because of Impact Tremors and Authority of the Consuls (->annoying enchantment, especially against conspire).

In retrospect I should have kept a "lower" profile by keeping Boundless Realms in hand to copy it with Wort later on. By filtering that amount of lands you can be certain to draw into some gas. But again, Authority was out so I couldn't do Wort+Conspire.

DarkStarStorm on Mana Burn

UseForgottenAncient: Those lands do not work at all in this deck. Vernal Bloom NEEDS the forest typing to be functional, while Early Harvest requires basics to untap. Besides that, the deck only ever needs one black source at any given time. Fertile Ground is another black source, while Arbor Elf and Garruk Wildspeaker can untap that black mana source to ensure that we can cast Torment of Hailfire. I'm not running four fetches and two shocks out of a budget, I'm running them because they are all that is needed. Adding more nonbasics turns off the very combo this deck was built around.

Early Harvest works a lot in my casual azusa deck since I did not want to splurge on lands when I created it. If you are looking for some more competitive versions, I do also have your best friend v2, and Your best friend which might give you some ideas on cheaper substitutions.

Thanks for dropping by,

Rude Awakening getting to untap your lands twice is nice.

Early Harvest same as above.

Insult doubling damage twice is crazy

HashMasta on Selvala's Big Dudes

Consider me overboard for giving you more suggestions but I have a soft spot for selvala. When I first started playing commander selvala was my first deck. It was a crappy deck but I made it better over some time.

Anyways some other cards that I went home to look up and find in decks/binders you might want to look at

Growing Rites of Itlimoc I finished opening a booster box of ixalan and I pulled this. I put this in my tribal elves deck but im not sure how it would do here. try it out maybe it will be good

Asceticism The problem with playing against control decks is that they often kill/take your biggest threats on the board. but having this prevents it. and if someone board wipe you can regenerate them

Praetor's Counsel in commander many people will have boardwipes. Many will manipulate your hand/deck. this card ensures that whatever you lose comes right back and you can draw as many cards as you want

Triumph of the Hordes this is pretty much an instant win in most cases. Give all your 10/10 and 12/12 another +1/+1, trample, and infect...goodnight

Shamanic Revelation draw a bunch of cards, gain a bunch of life, seems dec :D

Craterhoof Behemoth Another one of those game winning cards. if you have a 12/12, all your other creatures get 12/12 and trample...goodnight

Hydra Omnivore overall board damage

Worldspine Wurm 15/15 trampler turn into 3 5/5 tramplers

Sylvan Primordial tutor for lands and get rid of opposing threats

Ancient Ooze not a big creature but it can destroy your opponents major threats

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon Good board removal overall with low cost threats and can get rid of chump blockers. And can refill your hand while playing your biggest threats

Collective Voyage fun card to play. search for an abundance of lands while playing kind of a group hug early on. These kinds of things make people wanna target you less so you can build up without having to mostly worry about an enemy on your back

See the Unwritten freecast a card from the top 8 of your library

Burgeoning good way to dump out your lands early on

Early Harvest I was comparing this with omnath and i realized that this can be a big threat if omnath is on the board. if you decide not to run omnath i would not run this but just a neat little combo

Ground Seal Great if your playing against reanimator. just shuts them down

Spring Cleaning one of my most favorite decks that i play with currently is a karametra enchantress deck. it is very prison control heavy and filled with enchantments. so cards like this can really ruin my day. just kinda figure out who plays what at your table

Genesis Wave if you build up a lot of mana, you can cast this with x being 10 and can usually get 3-5 things out. even if it is not as high as 10, it is still a good card

Hope these cards will help you to. If you want to swap out some cards, feel free to ask what to swap i might help

Vernal Bloom / Early Harvest?

Funkydiscogod on Card creation challenge

I think at any CMC, that card would be a draft bomb. Imagine empty-handed, sweeping up 3 each of Plains and Islands would be an enormous power swing: draw 3 cards, and gain 27 life.

In Modern, with access to Hallowed Fountainand Prairie Stream, it could get out of control.

The closest thing to compare it to is Landbind Ritual and Flow of Ideas and Sphinx's Revelation. We probably could find a good cost for it if we had enough time to think about it.

Heartbeat Harvest


Sweep - Return any number of Forests you control to their owner's hand. Until end of turn, whenever you tap a land for mana, add to your mana pool for each Forest returned this way.

This one is meant to be Heartbeat of Spring meets Early Harvest, with the drawback of having to return land to your hand to get any effect.

Anyway...I don't think sweep needs to be just on instants and sorceries. Let's see a creature that has an activated ability with Sweep.

I feel like if there is a deck that should use Life and Limb it is this one. It helps dodge the neccesity of Liege of the Tangle and helps enable shenanigans with Early Harvest. While ramping into Banfire with this is probably the correct call, the slots freed from trying to cast him enable shenanigans with Mycoloth, Psychotrope Thallid Scatter the Seeds Utopia Mycon and Sprout Swarm, substantially boosting the number of tapped creatures at the core of the combo.Good luck getting it running.
