Fruit of the First Tree Discussion

Hi, its always good to see new faces around. First things first, Parting Thoughts is unfortunately not a modern-legal card- it shows on the bottom right hand side. Modern equivalents are things like Momentous Fall,Fruit of the First Tree Take, Tezzeret's Gambit, Fathom Mage, Greater Good, Life's Legacy, Soul's Majesty etc. Still, it should be a straightforward swap, even if its not removal. I'd reccomend looking around at other decks that use landfall effects and counter effects- they tend to operate on different principals, one running Terramorphic Expanse or Wooded Foothills type cards for a quick burst of damage, and the other runnning lists like this thing I threw together Mono green county to play aggressively.

Modern as a format has been shaped by the presence of fast, powerful cards like Scapeshift, Lightning Bolt or Death's Shadow, meaning most games are won or lost by turn four. If you find yourself playing in a competitive environment, just run a full set of Duress, Despise and kill spells like Vendetta- it'll be relatively cheap and hopefully stop your opponent for long enough to achieve a strong board state with Armorcraft Judge and Ridgescale Tusker. The two concepts to keep in mind are 'card advantage' and 'tempo'. Basically, card advantage is 'can I use this card to take out two of his, so that you have more options overall than your opponent style, and tempo is 'can I trade all my cards for damage before my opponent can stop me'.

Playing casually on the other hand is a lot more relaxed, if you're playing with a small group and small number of decks, try to trade for variety in your setup- its no fun if all the games turn out the same way, and the slower play is a lot more forgiving. Optimise to match the power of people you're playing with, otherwise noone will want to play against the deck. People will put up with a couple of dumb turn four wins, but don't try to do that every game, even if its possible. I'll reccomend you focus on making sure your lands are reliable- while competitively Sylvan Scrying is usually used to fetch tron peices (Urza's Toweretc) it will work well enough to fetch lands, though Rampant Growth, Harrow, Khalni Heart Expedition, Kodama's Reach and other cards that put lands onto the battlefield will likely be more practical for now.

Also, you should include Vinelasher Kudzu, its pretty hilarious.

The most important thing is to playtest before going out and getting things, and have fun.

Lifegain isn't really needed due to the many life gaining cards in this deck, and they are just there for a little reassurance.As for card draw, I have Harmonize & Phyrexian Arena, which seem to do their jobs when I need them toAlso, my creatures don't really die much, they are either exiled or returned to hand or shuffled into library. So that really hurts Fruit of the First Tree.

Thanks for the suggestion, though The7thBobba.

I'd appreciate any others!

This is pretty great! I think a few non-budget choices are in order (Natural Order,Gaea's Cradle , etc)...but past that this has a lot of thought to it.

I think Momentous Fall may suit you more than Fruit of the First Tree. Vigor may have a spot in this deck.

Great job! +1

sounds like a bomb, bro! definitely get Axebane Guardian or Overgrown Battlement for ramp. for the tree of redemption, consider Conclave's Blessing, Fruit of the First Tree, and then Life's Legacy for the finale!
