Faeburrow Elder Discussion

DemonDragonJ on Bears and dorks

This deck is definitely an interesting idea, but how is it supposed to win a game?

I strongly recommend putting Faeburrow Elder in this deck, because, for only one mana more over Bloom Tender, it can potentially have higher power and toughness, it has vigilance, and is far less expensive in terms of money.

I also think that Stoic Angel would be a very awesome card for this deck, unless she would hinder its strategy.

What about Skyward Eye Prophets and Empyrial Archangel? Are they too expensive for this deck?

I hear you, for sure . . . unfortunately, the power creep in my local meta just means that value engines/combo decks tend to win faster/more reliably.

Mudslide would be good if we went away from the dork plan, gave our dorks flying via an anthem effect, and/or went into rock-only ramp. Bloom Tender and Faeburrow Elder are usually so necessary and so good here, though, that I wouldn't make that exact shift but wonder if there's an angle we aren't seeing in re a stax package.

Though if anything, I would look to have more stack-based interaction in the build, and that's even less fun to me here vs cutting the overall dragon count, which was already a bit painful (emotionally).

And if we're looking at graveyard hate, it should probably be asymmetrical—so WotS Ashiok? Soul-Guide Lantern?

So far I'm happy with Opportunistic Dragon and Verix Bladewing, but only as they are early-game durdle pieces with potential payoffs later in the game. There's also upside with Opportunistic Dragon in that you can munch whatever you name (humans are also very much a thing you see!) w/ Korvold, Fae-Cursed King, who is increasingly a primary tutor target for me.

Verix Bladewing isn't great, but sometimes rebuilding your board for cheap or even just getting a vanilla on-tribe body out early does do work. It might be a pet card for me, fair warning, as I like the flexibility but also the art on both the card and the token. So I might be overly self-justifying its continued inclusion (along with the need to push the overall CMC down lower).

Funkydiscogod, this card is intended to be an artifact version of Bloom Tender and/or Faeburrow Elder, so I do not wish to limit its ability to produce mana.

What if it had a fixed cost of only or ? Would that make it more feasible?

This card was inspired by a card from a supposed leak of Ikoria that has now been proven to be false, so I have made my own version of that card, as seen, here:

Prismatic Lotus Show

This card is an artifact version of Bloom Tender and Faeburrow Elder, but can be put into any deck, although decks with more colors with obviously gain a greater benefit from it. The version in the leak had a fixed mana cost of , but I thought that it would be more interesting with the ability to have its cost be reduced, which also would both encourage and enable decks with a greater number of colors. I initially planned to give this card a cost of , but I then decided that that was simply too high of a cost, even with the card's cost-reducing ability.

What does everyone else say about this? What do you think of this card?

Also, as a side note, why is Bloom Tender much more expensive in terms of money than is Faeburrow Elder? Is it because it is an older card, because it costs one less mana, or for another reason?

I can't give you much advice but I can tell you to run Faeburrow Elder.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd on Finale of Devastation in cEDH

1 week ago

I've been seeing a lot of cEDH decks playing Finale of Devastation, but I do not quite understand why. It looks too mana-intensive to me.

In my deck I would use it to put combo piece creatures into play. These are Bloom Tender, Faeburrow Elder, Devoted Druid, and Recruiter of the Guard. And if the situation isn't right for any of those, then I'll put Spellseeker into play.

With Green Sun's Zenith, I can play a mana dork turn 1 and then GSZ for x=2 for Bloom Tender on turn 2. I like that curve a lot. With Finale I can't do this.

With Eladamri's Call, it's an instant. I can hold a counterspell and play this on an opponent's end step. And if I'm finding a 2 or 3 mana creature, I don't need the 4 or 5 mana all at once. I also like these properties.

Finale seems like the worst of both worlds. What kind of cEDH decks should be playing this card, and why?

I did some of what you suggested alphonsy.

I added Mind Unbound, Zameck Guildmage, Etched Oracle and Soul Diviner for the card draw; Faeburrow Elder for the ramp and fixing; Gilder Bairn for other pump mechanic; and Experiment Kraj as a wildcard (since he can copy what other creatures may do).

Also lowered the black permanents and upped the blue ones. So it is now mainly green, blue and black second with splashes of red and white.

This has proven to be more difficult that what I thought. I feel iffy about how it's turning out. Will continue to accept suggestions.
