Elvish Piper Discussion
1 day ago
Haha, I actually thought of Path to Exile in the very beginning when I made this deck because of the ability to use it on my own creatures.
But yes, it's definitely better in most situations, but I really don't want to play with a sideboard in my decks. I don't play tournaments with them, and having cards specifically to counter my friends when playing just seems like a bit much. Hence I went with the Angelic Purge... it's also cheap.
Lotus Cobra was also a serious competitior to Sylvan Caryatid when I made the deck, but I had the Sylvan Caryatids and the Lotus Cobra was expensive as heck. It would still be a lovely upgrade though.
I literally just added the Elvish Pipers over Dramatic Entrance as they could be used on Sylvan Caryatid, Mentor of the Meek, Emeria Angel and Avenger of Zendikar. Sure, it's not a lot of value on the others, but it makes it easier to play them, and it can be done at instant speed which is nice.Mentor of the Meek is new as well and took the place of one of the Congregation at Dawn, but hasn't really been tested yet. I'd say that it seems like he has so much card draw that there's no need for Congregation at Dawn anymore, and in that case I'd like to swap the two Congregation at Dawn for Nissa, Voice of Zendikar.
The deck is a bit land heavy, so maybe, just maybe, it would be possible to sneak a few of them out and stuff in some Intangible Virtue instead.

You are welcome. Another card that comes to mind is Primeval Titan. And if i was to remove a card from your list, i would cut 4x Elvish Piper, since the only creature you have worth cheating is Avenger of Zendikar, and in a deck with so much ramp like this one, i think it isnt worth it. The piper, for max potential of its use, is usually paired with creatures that have really high cmc cost (Emrakul) or some difficult conditions to cast them (progenitus). So, while it can still be used here, i think you are wasting its potential and taking away efficiency from this deck.
Also, Congregation at Dawn is usually played in combo decks, which have a winning condition on the spot if they get the cards they need. Yours is more of a synergy deck, without any immediate wincon. So you may switch it for a card that actually gives you card advantage, and not just arrange you topdeck. For example, Wall of Omens or Harmonize.
It just occured to me that you could go the Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and either Ajani, Mentor of Heroes or Ajani Unyielding path and support them with Oath of Ajani. Not only it helps you ramp to play your PWs (though nissa is already cheap), but it also synergyzes well with your tokens. And there is a really nice endgame confunction between nissa's and ajani unyielding's ultimates, letting you take total control of the lategame by refilling your life and giving you a lot of card advantage.
If you have the money, Path to Exile will always be better than Angelic Purge. If you face against enchantments and artifacts, green and white are the best colors to get rid of them. So just add a sideboard card to you main board on game 2. PTE can also be used on one of your own creatures to get you another landfall (i can't think of a situtation where you would chose that, but it is an option nevertheless).
One last thought. If you want to emphazise even more on landfall, you could try cards like Sakura-Tribe Elder or Viridian Emissary/Primal Druid. And ofc, the opus magnum of landfall is Lotus Cobra, but it is a bit expensive.

An overwhelming majority of your creature cards has a high mana cost, you may want to look at ways to cheat them out. I can think of Quicksilver Amulet, Selvala's Stampede, Lurking Predators, Elvish Piper, Kaalia of the Vast, Summoning Trap, Descendants' Path.
I don't see the point of running Primal Surge if your entire deck isn't going to be permanents, but you do you. If you want to keep the deck budget than Zendikar Resurgent is a cheap mana doubler and draw engine. As a Saskia player myself, I like any Saskia deck that I see that isn't the meta aggro or token spam, so I hope you have good luck getting this deck to where it needs to be. Peace brother!

I like where you are going with this deck. Samut is the new legendary that interests me the most.
Since your average CMC is so high with the big stompy creatures, you may want more ways to "cheat" mana costs. Mosswort Bridge and Spinerock Knoll are easy to activate. the new Champion of Rhonas and Elvish Piper are also great at cheating creatures into play.

Cool list. I'm currently working on a Samut, Voice of Dissent deck as well.
are all cards I'm excited about playing in the deck.

Vedalken Orrery will help you get more consistent flips.
Descendants' Path can help cheat werewolves into play.
Budget pending, Sylvan Library is amazing card draw.
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed isn't a wolf but definitely is worth running since he hurts players for casting non-creature spells.
Just a few ideas based on my own experience running werewolves in EDH.
