Elvish Aberration Discussion
1 week ago
Hello! It's been quite a bit since someone has given any input. But i am working on a Kraj EDH build myself and really liked your deck design!
As a nice, cheap, update in recent printing you can replace Elvish Aberration with the recent Llanowar Tribe if paying isn't too much trouble. Same ability for less CMC. Though admittedly you lose the Forest-cycling ability.
Thanks for the inspiration!

- turn the creature into a 2/2 flyer.
- turn the creature into a 2/2 vigilance
- turn into a creature 1/1 deathtouch
Just for an idea

These upgrades aren't huge, cards I'd drop are the following:
Ambush Viper , Lay of the Land , Boundless Realms , Tower Defense , Mortal's Resolve , Fog , Burst of Strength , Panharmonicon , Lure , Verdant Haven , Sandwurm Convergence , Shapers' Sanctuary , Shapers' Sanctuary , Greenseeker , Kalonian Tusker , Oak Street Innkeeper , Duskdale Wurm , Elvish Aberration , Borderland Ranger , Civic Wayfinder , and Centaur's Herald .
These 21 cards don't do enough to warrant inclusion overall, and you can ask me about any specific drops, but I'd not run them. I would argue to run at least 3-5 more Forests (4 for now will be my estimate leaving 17 cards left to work with) and to run the following:
Yisan, the Wanderer Bard , End-Raze Forerunners , Karametra's Acolyte , Terastodon , Reclamation Sage , Primordial Sage , Wolfbriar Elemental , Ulvenwald Tracker , Rampaging Baloths , Regal Force , Temur Sabertooth , Fierce Empath , Harmonize , Rampant Growth , Primal Command , Lignify , and Beast Within
These should all round out the deck! Many are creatures that can be flashed in with big effect, like Yisan, the Wanderer Bard / End-Raze Forerunners / Rampaging Baloths / Regal Force , etc. or are card draw/removal to keep you in the game when an opponent 'goes off'. Often if green gets board wiped they hurt, and while Heroic Intervention helps out, Temur Sabertooth too, sometimes just rebuilding is the answer. Think of the value of in response to a Wrath of God you flash in a Regal Force , draw 7 cards, then on your next turn empty your hand of new creatures to win with!
I chose relatively cheap cards for this list, hoping you don't have to spend to much!

Elvish Aberration is just the right size to be reduced by Goreclaw, and taps for GGG, getting you halfway to infinite power and toughness.
Selvala, Heart of the Wilds can also help you go infinite (after the initial downpayment of mana).

Horseshoe Crab , Vigean Graftmage , Pili-Pala , Simic Ragworm , Knacksaw Clique , and Soliton are a bunch of untap effects you can run. Combine them with anything that produces multiple mana, Gyre Sage , Karametra's Acolyte , Argothian Elder , Marwyn, the Nurturer , Viridian Joiner , Incubation Druid , Gyre Engineer , or Elvish Aberration and you have infinite mana.

Also Fyi Elvish Aberration is not legal in the Modern format.

Since you’ve listed plenty of cards that require a third card to go off, wether it’s a sac outlet or a Time Warp, I figured Umbral Mantle was worth mentioning for all the three card combos it can add to the list. This includes cards like Elvish Aberration, Emrakul's Hatcher, and Brood Monitor. If it doesn’t make it onto the list, that’s fine, though at least it can remain here in the comments in case someone is already running Umbral Mantle in their combo deck (since it allows for infinite mana with anything that can tap for more than three mana).

Thanks for the suggestions magus_oblivion! Currently, Terastodon is in here because he's great for manascrewing your opponent if you manage to get him out in the early midgame with Champion of Rhonas, and in the endgame you can use him to blow up your own excess mana dorks or lands for some extra beatdown. It's much too costly for modern though probably so at some point I'm gonna put the Champions in a new casual green hyper-ramp deck with 4x Terastodon and 4x Elvish Aberration, that will be a lot of fun. I will update this deck when I change it.
