Garruk Wildspeaker Discussion
11 hours ago
@ Blitzak Glad you appreciated my opinion on what you have done so far! Overall, I really agree with the point you are making, specifically with Sunforger. I was confused why you weren't running it at first, but now I completely understand your reasoning! As far as cuts go there are many, but there are probably 5-6 cards that might be worth letting go of. Overwhelming Forces - Decree of Pain is just better, besides it seems too expensive for what you are trying to do. Rakdos, Lord of Riots - The mana cost is incredibly color-intensive, has the same cmc as you commander making it awkward to curve out, and the cost reduction is not amazing since the majority of your creatures are cheap and require lots of colored mana. Yahenni, Undying Partisan - Stats are not great for the mana you pay, and although it does have haste, I feel like there are both better sac outlets and 3-drops. Glory-Bound Initiate - While it is an AMAZING card in standard, I have never been impressed with this card in EDH and feel like it's mediocre stats combined with the fact that it needs to exert to gain lifelink makes it suboptimal in your deck. And finally Garruk Wildspeaker - While he is a great card in some decks, I don't know if your deck is built to maximize the effect he provides. In addition, he paints a target on your back and the ability you want him most for is his ultimate. Anyways, these are just a few small suggestions and my opinion, so feel free to do with them whatever you like! Best of luck man!

ok so some suggestions:
~Garruk Wildspeaker is a little better then Primal Hunter in my opinion, your free to keep him but i suggest adding Wildspeaker.
Chord of Calling: A good Green mana sink
Craterhoof Behemoth: A game ender...though you need:

First thing, thank you all.
clayperce, that list (along with Competitive RG Ponza On A Budget) is actually the base for the budget Ponza list i brewed. It's really good and i love his/her analysis. Still, after all that math, my inner Timmy is also inspired by RG Ponza, PPTQ WINNER!!'s number of big creatures.
rothgar13 and Oloro_Magic, that was my same stream of thought: Ponza is a really solid deck, and even without BM or fetches can fight is way to a Top8 (at least during a FNM). BUT token (and BW in general) can be upgraded in many different ways: Smallpox (which includes Death Cloud, Aristocrat, Vehicles, Abzan... My difficulty comes exactly from that choice between a solid, tiered deck and a good base to build more than one possibly good decks. So thanks again. :)

As stated in the title, I'm working on finalizing my first ever hand-built commander deck, a Selvala, Heart of the Wilds deck. The deck is a Mono-Green Ramp deck featuring plenty of Eldrazi and mana ramp, and long story short, it needs to be cut down a bit; both in cards and in price. So, I'd like suggestions on which cards I should cut (and why, please)! (Any other suggestions are also welcome.) I need to cut 8 cards to make the deck legal!
Here's the deck itself:

SCORE: 3 | 13 COMMENTS | 204 VIEWS
Now, these cards below are the 20 most expensive ones in the deck (aside from Selvala or ones I already own). I'd like to cut cards from here to help reduce the cost of the deck, as I plan on buying it. Or, if there are cheaper alternatives to these cards or other cards in the deck, let me know!

Having not played the deck, it is hard to say what to remove, but I will say that with doubling season Samut, the Tested is basically a super friends tooth and nail. Any two walkers on the field when you get that combo.
There are a few arguments that I could try to make for what to remove, but ultimately you are the one using it, and you know better than me what works well for the deck and what doesn't. That being said, here are my picks for potential removal:
Garruk Wildspeaker- with the rest of the deck comp it seems like he's mainly useful for untapping lands. The 3/3 token every turn just doesn't seem impactful for edh, and his ult certainly doesn't. If I'm right, then I feel like samut is worth testing here because of the potential value of her ult. while I'll admit her two other abilities are no good either, i think the combo potential warrants a test.
Sorin, Lord of Innistrad- for a similar reason to garruk. It seems like only his 3rd ability is what you want to me, and he isn't the only walker you have that can have that sort of effect on the game, so the ability to fetch and play any two walkers seems strong in this slot as well. I'm actually less confident in how I feel about replacing him, because he's still really good. I just wanted to give at least two options I considered viable.

I've had really good experience with all 4 PW I run,
Nissa, Worldwaker is similar though its hard to get 4 forest sometimes may switch for Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip note though that her other +1 does not end at end of turn, so the land stays an elemental
Xenagos, the Reveler has been amazing he truly can produce ridiculous mana and can generate blockers before omnath is out like the other two
Koth of the Hammer is the most likely to get his ult off because his +1 is underwhelming and his -1 is situational, and the power of mountain ping is insane even with only 4-5

I don't know how much success you're having with Undergrowth Champion, but I never liked it very much. Just personally, I would suggest dropping it.
Somehow, you're not running Master Biomancer. Do it.
Sapphire Drake gives everything flying. That's always a good thing in mainly green decks.
You've got mostly green, so Reverent Hunter would make a good choice.
If you have tokens or lots of creatures often, play Stag Beetle.
Oran-Rief, the Vastwood makes for a good land for boosting your creatures, as do graft lands.
Minamo, School at Water's Edge lets you untap Vorel.
Gutter Grime creates increasingly large slimes. Ew.
Garruk Wildspeaker is a useful endgame planeswalker.
Everflowing Chalice for ramp.
For adding +1/+1 counters at instant speed, Strength of the Tajuru.
Often, you can check Auto-suggestions for cards this deck could use. I used that to bolster my advice. (Bolster is another nice +1/+1 counters ability, btw.) I also used my Vorel deck: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/when-you-have-too-many-counters-blame-vorel/ . It has a card-draw subtheme, but most of the cards are related to this.
A couple other deck ideas:- Atraxa, Praetors' Voice covers so much more ground with +1/+1 counters--you can play Abzan/Dromoka cards, Golgari cards, even the Orzhov Syndicate has powerful spells with counters. And those are just tribes/guilds.- Partner commanders. If Sultai is workable, use Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix for a sacrifice-card draw theme. I have a deck based on that.

Destroying lands that late in the game, as what you get to do with deus and aura, is not very good - your opponent has gotten his lands by then, and can play whatever he has available to stop your one mega-threat. If you want to destroy lands, do it earlier (consider playing against G/x tron - do you really want to let a tron deck have 4 turns without interfering with his lands?).
Your ramp plan is fragile. Persn'ly I've never really thought ramp creatures are much good in modern (elf-tribal decks being the exception), but even then, you have some weak ones (if it has to to that way, Arbor Elf and Birds of Paradise are better). What makes it even worse is using Xenagos, the Reveler for ramp. His ability to give you mana is completely dependent on your opponent leaving your small ramp creatures alone. A decent ramp package could be 4 Arbor Elf, 4 Utopia Sprawl, 3 Garruk Wildspeaker, 4 Search for Tomorrow. It has some creatures, and some other things, and the planeswalker is good for things other than ramping - beast tokens are ok for defense too. You could also go with a devotion/nykthos kind of ramp...
And other than that, some mix of cards from the ponza deck - Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Stone Rain, Goblin Dark-Dwellers... forget about combat tricks - you just draw them when you'd rather draw something else, and an opponent without land doesn't really fight back anyway.
