Earthen Arms


Put two +1/+1 counters on target permanent.

Awaken 4— (If you cast this spell for , also put four +1/+1 counters on target land you control and it becomes a 0/0 Elemental creature with haste. It's still a land.)

This deck is awesome!

It seems like with all the creature clearing this deck can do - double strike might be worth more than evasion?

I also immediately thought of Awaken cards Part the Waterveil or Earthen Arms - dunno if its worth it, but it would speed up the combo side.

Earthen Arms might be cool, make your animated land bigger

Darksteel Garrison. Land equipment that grants indestructible. Plus, I'm pretty sure the buff when the land is tapped can apply to itself if it happens to be a creature which is tapped because it's currently attacking. Approximately $0.50. I also feel like Darksteel Citadel ($0.50) and Cascading Cataracts ($1.00) should be included for the same reason, indestructible, even though they aren't green. I'm on mobile so I'm not sure how much of your deck depends on the awakened lands being basic forests though.

A quick search also reveals Awakener Druid, Earthen Arms, and Liege of the Tangle as potentially interesting to your deck, though the liege is ~$3 which might be too much.

Regarding Sylvan Awakening, I'd replace Natural Affinity personally. The ability to entwine Rude Awakening is valuable and the instant speed aspect of Natural Affinity seems meh.

Also, you might have it already but Life and Limb ($1.40) seems really amusing.

I feel like Earthen Arms is just better than Nissa in a Zada deck. With Nissa, you pay 1 more mana and it will take you 3 turns to do the same thing the Earthen Arms will do targetting Zada or a Mirrorwing Dragon. Also, how do you feel about Servant of the Conduit?

Zada is a Legendary, so I don't like running more than 3 of her. Especially for Mirrorwing, which is just soooo much more resilient. I like the idea of Larger Than Life though ... not in the side, but maybe as part of the Invigorated Rampage/Rush of Adrenaline mix. Earthen Arms is really good ... tbh, one of the most powerful ZadaFur variants is a +1/+1 counter-based strategy. It needs a lot more ramp, and then spells like Arms, Infuse with the Elements, and Might Beyond Reason. I just happen to prefer the more "combat trick" gameplay.

Thanks much!

I reccomend you run a full playset of Zada, not just 3 and possibly one less Mirrorwing Dragon. Larger Than Life is great if you haven't considered it yet for the sideboard. definitely worth playing or at least trying out. Giving all your werewolves +6/+6 and trample until the end of the turn is just so good for 2 mana because it pretty much makes your creatures un-boltable. Though it may not be an instant, I would reccomend putting in a couple copies on the sideboard in case you're having a hard time getting in that last push and I'd also take out Nissa for Earthen Arms.

I love Earthen Arms in this deck because I can immediately put counters on a land rather than wait for a creature of mine to die first and Coastal is necessary for card draw in this deck.

Halimar Tidecaller was in the deck until I replaced it with Noyan Dar which has worked well so far for me because its the awakened part I want most rather than the base part of the card.

As much as I wish I could include Part the Waterveil my meta really hates on extra turns more than most things but I should put it in my sideboard

I really like the idea of using awaken cards with Atraxa. Thoughts on Halimar Tidecaller and Part the Waterveil

Maybe Earthen Arms and Coastal Discovery as well.
