Fists of Ironwood Discussion

ellie-is on Ellie's Saprolings

So I've done a pretty big update by fixing the mana base through adding fetches and shocklands (if anyone has any ideas for further tweaks I'd love to hear them!), haven't bought them yet but will do that before the next time when it's safe to play magic, whenever that may be, lol.

Also got rid of Tukatongue Thallid, which didn't really do much most of the time, and Supply which was either dead card, a strictly worse version of my other token spells, or just a win-more card.

Taking their places are Essence Warden, which turned out to be a -lot- better than I expected and can change the result of the game just by surviving a couple of turns, and Obelisk of Urd, which is surprisingly easy to cast and amazing at closing out games.

With these changes I've decided I don't like Song of Freyalise so much anymore, as with the new lands it's very rare for me to not have white mana available when I need it and a lot of my spells have Convoke anyway, and with Obelisk of Urd the song's final ability feels redundant and Urd is a better finisher most of the time.

So I'm trying to figure out a 2-drop to take its place but I don't really know what. Main contenders right now are Birds of Paradise, Voyaging Satyr, and Fists of Ironwood (though I don't really want to use the latter that much as neeeding to enchant something to use it really sucks, wish there was another 2-drop saproling maker lol). Suggestions on this dillema are most welcome!!

Can I suggest adding Fists of Ironwood and Pollenbright Wings? Both are fairly cheap options and would work in the deck pretty well.

On the damage you can stack triggers so Pollenbright Wings creates tokens first and then you get that many more Saprolings from Rith. Nice little way to boost token production.

Fists of Ironwood doesn't need much explanation. Give Rith trample to get his trigger and make a couple Saprolings

Plagued Rusalka is amazing. It’s another sacrifice effect that can also stop weenie decks from going wide by killing their 1/1s. Fists of Ironwood gives trample to your main threats as well as providing 2 tokens to sacrifice.

Fists of Ironwood for a spurt of 'rolings, along with giving trample? and a Necrogenesis for graveyard hate.

Very cool tips. I also got a few Saproling Migration and Fists of Ironwood for more tokens and a trample

Just a lil change that gives me more tokens and won’t slow me down :)

Dreampod Druid is a good source of free saprolings, but if you want to double down, Fists of Ironwood is a safe choice to get more saprolings - and you get them immediately, so you still have something to show for it if the Druid is killed. And considering you have Whip Silk in there, I was actually surprised to see you aren't running Bramble Elemental! He's fine with Verdant Embrace and Fists of Ironwood, but with the Whip Silk he reads ": Put two saprolings into play." Hard to beat that exchange rate!
