  1. Staples:
  2. Maybe:
    • Protection:
      • Sylvan Safekeeper : Creature protection.
      • Veil of Summer : Counterspell protection. Protection against blue and black removal. Most common cards with removal (although meta dependent).
  3. Cut:

Staple cards are cards I recommend obtaining and using, since they are almost always good cards to have in any green deck. The rest is up to preference and should be taken with a grain of salt. I hope I could be of some use to you.

Arcum Dagsson -> Elvish Piper/Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip/Tooth and Nail/Caravan Vigil/Mana Reflection/Quicksilver Amulet/Summoner's Egg/Fool's Demise/Curator's Ward/Lightning Greaves/Conqueror's Flail/??

Some additional protection for your combo pieces comes to mind. Maybe just another counterspell. But Arcum doesn't belong in the deck IMO

works exceedingly well with any lands that produce more than 1 mana such as the bounce lands or anything that has been granted the ability to produce more mana such as the above mentioned Zendikar Resurgent or for a lower on the curve example, Utopia Sprawl.

as for the flavor i personally don't think the idea you were going for comes across very well. i think if you want to have this card feel like a protector of the meek creatures you might want to give it something that can help keep other critters alive. though i do like the idea of coaxing out small creatures. perhaps something like

as long as ~ is untapped, spells your opponent casts that target creatures you control with CMC 3 or less cost 2 more to cast. T: put a creature with CMC 3 or less from your hand into play.

it's sort of a Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea mixed with Elvish Piper. let me know what you think of this sort of idea.

How do you feel about the "Cheat big creatures into play" stuff like Elvish Piper or Quicksilver Amulet?

For those who're following the thread, Uzeep's questions were answered via Discord. However, the main thing I wanted to address in his comment is his mention of tutoring Shaman of Forgotten Ways. It is NEVER in our gameplan to tutor this, so we never care about where this card is until we've established Infinite Mana and an Outlet, only then do we look for kill loops which is also when the sky's the limit.

Due to his region certain cards were unavailable, so we also brewed up some changes to rectify this. His variation will be exactly the same with the following exceptions:

Creature (6)

Enchantment (3)

Instant (2)

Hynx Appreciate the tips, but I don't think you got the point of the deck. It isn't to ramp and hard cast the big boys. It runs low to the ground and quick with aggro play until it has enough ramp to drop a big creature or preferably Primal Surge to get the entire deck(or as much of it as I choose) onto the battle field. While Elvish Piper wouldn't be a bad test run in place of Bow of Nylea or Nylea, God of the Hunt. Unfortunately I don't really have much use for the instants you recommended as protection since they would definitely fizzle out Primal Surge if cast much sooner than intended in exchange for saving many dorks that I don't really care about. Dosan the Falling Leaf could be a decent preventative measure, but mostly I rely on Asceticism to protect my board. Thank you for the suggestions!

instead of Savage Summoning use Ranger's Guile or Blossoming Defense on the Elvish Piper before using his ability, and that you have some discard protection, after the obvious pull you are gonna make.
