Gaea's Skyfolk Discussion

multimedia on Elves of Dominaria

4 days ago

At today's Announcement Day, Wizards announced that we are returning to Ravnica for three sets. The Fall October set: Guilds of Ravnica, the Spring January 2019 set: Ravnica Allegiance and the Summer or Fall 2019 set is unknown. Yes three sets of Ravnica in a row.

Here's the official Announcement Day video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_qvw0JrswA.


If you can't make it through watching and listening to the whole video because your face has sunken into your head from all the cringing, I completely understand. I had to fast forward through many parts of the 10 minute video...

Dawn is the highlight of the entire thing. Dawn talks about the new art direction for Ravnica, most importantly how the creatures in each guild are going to look, what characteristics of the clothing says about creatures in each guild.

Here's Golgari and you'll notice he's an Elf, an Elf Warrior. Elves are already confirmed to be part of the Ravnica sets! This is exciting early news. Elves are returning to Golgari, the best color combination for the tribe.

More Golgari and more Elves. Elf Shamans are also part of the guild. The art direction for Golgari is described as being about the cycle of life, death and the rebirth. Mushrooms and fungi represent these concepts. They appear to be growing on and part of the armor and clothing of the Elves. Very interesting mushroom dresses for the women Elves the art could be fantastic for these.

In Dominaria Fungi and Saprolings are Golgari this could be a nice transition into and possible pairing of these two tribes.

More Elves in the concept art for Simic. Simic's art direction is described as the guild of bio engineers, lab tech and hybrid creations. Elves are part of the Supersoliders section of the guild.

I really like the idea of more hybrid Elves like Coiling Oracle and Gaea's Skyfolk kind of wish this idea was expanded on with other guilds. Looking at this concept art it appears that only the armor and clothing of the Elves is hybrid. I hope this isn't the case and the actual body of an Elf is a hybrid of two or more different creatures. This is much more interesting then just changing the armor or clothing.


Next up for Standard Magic is the Core Set 2019(M19). We know more about the Ravnica October set than July M19, haha. Something is kind of wrong, out of whack, with the these announcements...

Allergymedsandcats on A Song of Turns and Dongers (cEDH)

As for specifics I can give you reasons why we don't play the suggested cards.

Gaea's Skyfolk In this deck, we're trying to hit critical mass ASAP in order to hit out extra turn spells and win by chaining them together. Bigger attackers don't matter to us. When we look for attackers, we look for one mana cratures with evasion. A creature has to do much more for us if we're spending a whole two or even three mana on it. The general rule of thumb for the deck is if it costs more than one mana, it better be doing something that directly impacts out gameplan.

Burgeoning vs Exploration Burgeoning requires you to have a mitt full of lands which we don't want to be frank. we want to have one or two lands, some type of ramp, interaction and a couple attackers. You might come back with "but you draw so many cards, you're bound to get a mitt full of lands at some point." if we're drawing that many cards, our opponents should get another turn because we take all the turns at that point, leaving them unable to play lands to trigger burgeoning. Exploration on the other hand does way more in the long run, we draw a mitt full of lands during chaining, now we can play two per turn to help with warps and paying for protection.

Elvish Spirit Guide vs Mana Crypt Yes we are very colour dependant, but spirit guide can only be used once. Mana crypt is also free but can be used repeatedly and helps drastically with casting our fat costing warps.

Thanks for the interest. Please feel free to read our primer and join our discord if you have further questions. Just let me know.

Gaea's Skyfolk v Scryb Sprites/Spire Tracer/Treetop Scout? Burgeoning v Exploration? I consider it much faster, even if it's removal bait. Elvish Spirit Guide v Mana Crypt or something similar? This deck seems very color demanding.

Hope this helps

I think islandwalk will be your least reliable form of evasion even with Spreading Seas. I like Gaea's Skyfolk too because it blocks a flipped Delver of Secrets  Flip. You could take out maybe Streambed Aquitects and Stonybrook Banneret (the discount doesn't help when almost all your creatures cost 1). Maybe cut those 4 and add a 4th Skyfolk. I'm not sure what's correct but that's my suggestion.

You also have the option of sideboarding in some of your bigger Merfolk or islandwalkers if your opp is playing blue.

Deck looks like fun!

@ponchossweater Great suggestion, I love Mist-Cloaked Herald. Maybe not enough to replace Cosi's Trickster though, it can trigger on fetch lands, ramp spells, etc that's so common in commander. Still a great merfolk, I might cut a higher costing spell to even out the tempo a bit.

Hadana's Climb is... OK. My bro likes it much more. This deck has like 3 cards that get counters on creatures besides the commander, and even then it's the most expensive ability on Kumena. For now at least, I'll probs stick to my Gaea's Skyfolk, what I consider it to be the best 2 drop in the deck besides the A cards. Thanks poncho!

Gaea's Skyfolk isn't Modern legal. You'd need to replace that to compete. Looks good though!

ParanoeX on Overbeing of Myth

some minor changes.. i haven't played with this deck in a long time but when i read through these changes i agreed with most of the recent changes.. but i dont know why i removed Courser of Kruphixes.. so added them back :D i seem to have included 2 Sunbringer's Touches and removed Gaea's Skyfolks and now this deck is modern legal! But I'm not too sure about that Sunbringer's Touch could boost up a weaker creature nicely, but i'm pretty sure that Chasm Skulker and Overbeing of Myth is all i need.. i also dropped few cards to make space for the Courser of Kruphixes
