GreenLover21 on Fable of Wolf and Owl

5 days ago

MRSCHROEPFER, I like the concept. Maybe try out Temur Sabertooth. She can pull double-duty as an indestructable blocker and hit your Fable of Wolf and Owl.

Also the mana base looks like its leaning majority blue, but you have a large green demand. Maybe look at running a full playset of Evolving Wilds and shift to Forest dominant to ensure hitting them in the early plays for Arbor Elf.

Other options for smoothing out your mana development try:

Breeding Pool, Thornwood Falls, Simic Guildgate, Lumbering Falls, Misty Rainforest, Flooded Grove, Hinterland Harbor, Simic Growth Chamber,

Rian, re-reading my previous comment (now deleted) I think I made a simple explanation way too complicated. Let me re-try.

Is there a reason you're not playing Unclaimed Territory, Ancient Ziggurat, Exotic Orchard and Path of Ancestry?

  • Yes. It's because they're all strictly worse than Gemstone Mine and all the other 5 color lands I placed in the deck. This deck is designed to be the most efficient tribal sliver edh deck possible. The previous cards you mentioned ether come into play tapped (Path of Ancestry is too slow) OR are dependent on factors that are outside of my control. Basically, if I needed access to mana but i'm facing a mono red deck, then Exotic Orchard is of no use. If I need to play something that isn't a creature (and not colorless), then Unclaimed Territory, and Ancient Ziggurat are wasted slots.

None of the lands you mentioned are better than Gemstone Mine, Cascade Bluffs, Flooded Grove, Mystic Gate, or Sunken Ruins.

  • Why? Because the lands you mentioned have limitations based on factors entirely outside of your control. The filter lands and Gemstone Mine don't have such limiting factors. You can spend the mana they produce on anything your deck plays. Not just creatures - your mana options are not limited when you absolutely need to play something.

Looking at your landbase, is there a reason you're not playing Unclaimed Territory , Ancient Ziggurat, Exotic Orchard and Path of Ancestry ? They all seem potentially better than Gemstone Mine, Cascade Bluffs, Flooded Grove, Mystic Gate, Sunken Ruins.

PookandPie on derevi empyrial tactician

Hinder and Spell Crumple honestly aren't that great any longer since the tuck rule is gone (if a Commander would be tucked away into a library, they can choose to put it into the Command Zone now). Counterspell is a straight upgrade to one of those slots (tutor heavy decks would prefer the card being in the library versus the graveyard, plus 1 mana less), and Swan Song might be a good idea for the other as no one cares about 2/2 birds in a 40 life format.

Cyclonic Rift should be in. Overloading that gives you a late game option to swing in and claim a victory when you otherwise would have been behind. As for what to remove, Dovin Baan is cute but not really very good (his ultimate is Static Orb, but you could just run Static Orb if you want to be Stax Derevi as his other abilities aren't that great at once per turn for 4 mana).

Small creatures that grow or have evasion are great with Derevi. Pride of the Clouds is likely better than some of your other creatures.

Coastal Piracy is cute, but Rhystic Study would either draw you more cards or slow your opponents down: Both aspects are better for you.

It seems odd to run Perilous Forays in a list that doesn't make tokens over, say, Dawn's Reflection, which would net you 3 extra mana every time a creature of yours hits an opponent. Forays costs mana to use, as well, so you can't even properly loop Reveillark/Karmic Guide + a 2 power creature like you could, say, Martyr's Cause.

Vedalken Aethermage could just be Worldly Tutor, Chord of Calling,

Also, you have Eldrazi Displacer as your blink enabler, but you don't have enough colorless sources or tutors to find those aforementioned sources. The only land you have that produces colorless mana is Reliquary Tower, and you have no way to tutor that card. The only other things in the whole deck that make colorless mana are Ashnod's Altar and Sol Ring, at least that I am seeing at a cursory glance. So, my suggestion is to add Adarkar Wastes, Brushland, and Yavimaya Coast to the mana base. Wooded Bastion, Mystic Gate, and Flooded Grove are easier to use, but also more expensive. In any place, 3-5 of these lands should replace things like Meandering Coast, Guildgates, etc., so that you increase the likelihood of being able to use Eldrazi Displacer if you draw it (because that diamond symbol means that you need colorless mana plus two of any other type). otherwise, switch Displacer to Deadeye Navigator as he's easier to use without changing your mana base right now.

Yeah Lumbering Falls is definetly going in. Not sure if there is an oath version of Flooded Grove pretty sure there is a u/g tap land?

Adamram1985 Maybe some dual lands? Like Lumbering Falls given that you don't have that many creatures, maybe put 2 of those in. Flooded Grove maybe (There's a Oath of the Gatewatch version)? It would work well with the Walking Ballista and Endless One because of the tap for colourless!

I agree the signets would be a good addition, but I think you need a few more lands as well. I've been building an Atraxa deck as well and the manabase is fiddly. I'm not sure what your budget is but a reasonable option is adding in check lands (Glacial Fortress, Sunpetal Grove, etc) and pain lands (Yavimaya Coast, Llanowar Wastes, etc). The expensive option is adding filters (Wooded Bastion, Flooded Grove etc) and shocks (Hallowed Fountain, Godless Shrine etc). If you can swing it, the checks and shocks pair very well together. You could probably throw in some extra sources of ramp such as Cultivate Explore Kodama's Reach Commander's Sphere and Fellwar Stone
