Elder of Laurels Discussion

mistahboweh on That Azusa deck with 69 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) basic forests.

Primeval Bounty here is a six mana enchantment that does nothing other than some minor life gain. I'd highly recommend something else in that slot. I personally like Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger , but if you're not that sort of degenerate, instead consider a card like Chameleon Colossus , Heroes' Bane or Elder of Laurels as a way of converting lands into dunking players.

If you want more ways to get yourself an army, Ant Queen can serve in a pinch. For flying dunks and also board interaction, there's Steel Hellkite who can erase tokens with one hit and firebreathe to death the next. And if you'd like to win without having to dunk, Helix Pinnacle exists as an alternate route in case your opponents have put up enough of a wall.

Elder of Laurels has a nice pump effect to apply to Sidar or other unblocked attacker to deal out some really good damage [hopefully commander damage]. It doesn't tap for this so can be activated multiple times if you have the mana.

Hour of Reckoning is the token deck boardwipe. Convoke with your creatures that its going to kill and leave the tokens free to finish off an opponent.

Ohran Frostfang will give another way for your token horde to get through [or a way to wipe out the defending army] and potentially draw a ton of cards if Sidar is out.

Simic is my least favorite color combination. By far. Not even close. Izzet is second lest favorite, but I like some of it. Simic... none.

Advisor is probably my favorite type, followed by Cleric. The first product I bought was the Elder of Laurels precon. My first commander deck was a Captain Sisay deck, but soon became a Gaddock Teeg deck. My second commander deck was an Obzedat, Ghost Council , replaced by Kambal, Consul of Allocation . Teysa Karlov is my favorite character, and I'm working on Grand Arbiter Augustin IV advisor tribal deck for Persistent Petitioners . Azor's Elocutors is my favorite win condition, and the root of my sole Simic deck (early 2013 standard).

So, Simic Advisor, the closest in game is Leovold, Emissary of Trest , a Sultai advisor.

Hey bud! Nice deck! I also love Sigarda and her Human Interaction! Some relatively cheap cards that will go a long way are:

Cathars' Crusade Radiant Destiny Oketra's Monument Skullclamp Overwhelming Stampede Increasing Devotion Elder of Laurels Champion of Lambholt

I am curious though, I've considered but have not run Sword of the Animist and Tamiyo's Journal , how do they play out for you?

Since you can tap any Advisor, have you looked at Elder of Laurels, Lady Sun, Mayor of Avabruck  Flip, Trusted Advisor, Zhuge Jin, Wu Strategist, Lu Su, Wu Advisor or any other Advisors?

Elder of Laurels and Zhuge Jin, Wu Strategist together could be an alt wincon maybe?

I feel between wolf run Mirror Entity,Elder of Laurels and others I got a pretty good set of that already.

And it's not that the the card is not good I just wouldn't be willing to take anything out for it.

And while burst is very I feel that the leaving play clause makes it 2 unreliable

A solid base for a more casual EDH deck. For landfall triggers I would highly recommend Avenger of Zendikar.

Another option to get more landfall triggers in a turn would be to play with Courser of Kruphix or Oracle of Mul Daya, with you searching your deck basicly every turn I can see you getting a lot of value out of those two cards.

I would also recommend you add some more mana dumps into your deck so you can use all of that left over mana. Cards such as: Elder of Laurels, Heliod, God of the Sun, Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage.
