Gelatinous Genesis Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Help me make my R/G ...

Actually, now that I read it, I'm not 100% certain that Mana Reflection will double Savage Ventmaw since you are not tapping specifically to add the mana, you are tapping to attack.

The mana is a result of him attacking, not the result of an activated ability.

I apologize for this oversight. I've actually never played with Mana Reflection before. It's in none of my decks, so I was unfamiliar with it's rulings.

That's my bad.

Regardless, you can still easily end up with 16 mana on T4.

  • 8 from 4 tapped lands
  • 2 from 1 tapped Dork
  • 6 from Ventmaw

That's still an X=13 Genesis Wave, an X=14 Rolling Thunder (Which will be game with the Ventmaw's damage), an X=15 Crater's Claws for 17 damage (Again, game), or a Hydra Broodmaster with Monstrosity of 4 (Which is still pretty good, all things considered).

I have one deck where I have a playset of Hydra Broodmaster and a playset of Gelatinous Genesis. So, that'd still be 7 of 7/7 Ooze tokens, too.

And if you're looking to nail down Devotion, you should run a playset of Steel Leaf Champion, Leatherback Baloth, and Karametra's Acolyte.

That, combined with your defenders and Craterhoof Behemoth is a sure-fire way to break through the game.

To destroy the boardstate with Hoof, you can also do things like Hydra Broodmaster and immediately pay into his ability to get a ton of massive tokens, or even Gelatinous Genesis to outright make tokens out the ass.

I have a MG stompy deck that does exactly this and it explodes with tremendous force. You just need to be quick on the draw to ensure you can keep it going. Last thing you want is to cast your hand and be top-decking the rest of the game.

Harmonize is great for this in green, as is Garruk, Primal Hunter where you -3 him immediately and draw stupid amounts of cards. Just be sure if you're using Garruk to cast him first with minimal amounts of mana (Tapping basic forests, for example) and than tap for devotion to get his added in before you kill him off to draw. No sense letting it go to waste.

When going mono-colored, and especially mono-green, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is always a nice card to have. Cards like Gelatinous Genesis and Genesis Wave are a nice place to dump the mana you've saved up. Nice deck, hope my suggestions help.

Deruvid on Too Much Mana? Impossible! 303+ Mana on Turn 3

4 months ago

The 196 mana steps are off and need revising. As it stands, it's not possible with the current list. The 196 mana steps include 4 Utopia Sprawls when only 1 is in the deck, and he instructs us to cast 5 Arbor Elf, among other missteps. It just doesn't work.

It looks like the deck is trying to do too much and needs some condensing. Gelatinous Genesis or Genesis Wave? Pick one. Arbor Elf with only 1 Utopia Sprawl? Max it out. Only 3 copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and no land-search? Do you want your mana generation to come from elves with Elvish Archdruid or Nykthos? Either maximize the elves (cut most of the fatties) or get more land-search (Primeval Titan) & untap effects like Garruk Wildspeaker.

Okay I'm here! Sorry it took so long; my comment deleted somehow!

Here's a good list of resources I use if you're new to the format: look up your commander and get hundreds of the most popular cards for him!

MTG look up cards and find similar ones!

The Command Zone #199 Staple cards

The Command Zone #151 Deck template maybe watch this first; very helpful!

So You need a bunch of cuts, I'd start with looking at:

  • Allosaurus Rider
  • Caller of the Pack
  • Garruk's Horde
  • Hornet Queen
  • Inkwell Leviathan
  • Nezahal, Primal Tide
  • Pelakka Wurm
  • Ranging Raptors
  • Ripjaw Raptor
  • Scavenging Ooze
  • Scute Mob
  • Simic Sky Swallower
  • Stormtide Leviathan
  • Thragtusk
  • Ulvenwald Hydra
  • Hunt the Weak
  • Primal Surge
  • Hadana's Climb
  • Sandwurm Convergence
  • Venser's Journal
  • Kiora, Master of the Depths
  • Early Harvest
  • Swell of Growth

Not saying throw them all at, but consider cutting and replacing :)

Now, I think Kruphix boils down to two things: Making mana, and using mana. With that in mind, here are some suggestions. Consider what your budget allows.

Making Mana: Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, Doubling Cube, Plasm Capture, Seedborn Muse, Kiora's Follower, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Deadeye Navigator(some infinite combos with this guy, ask if interested), Weaver of Currents, Everflowing Chalice, Frontier Siege etc.

Using mana: Stroke of Genius, Pull from Tomorrow, Curse of the Swine, Altered Ego, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Thrasios, Triton Hero, some Eldrazi beasties if you have the money, Genesis Wave, Braingeyser, Enter the Infinite, Gelatinous Genesis, Expropriate, Planar Bridge, Nissa, Steward of Elements, and finally, Helix Pinnacle as a fun win-condition.

That's my $0.02! Hope some if this helps!

How about Wurmcalling and Gelatinous Genesis?

Those might be good here.

I made a deck similar to this, and you can see it here:

Green Elves Ramp: 59 Mana on Turn 4

Modern daNoodalz


Here are my main suggestions: Elvish Archdruid, because it allows you to double the power and toughness of most elves and ramp up for lots of juicy mana. Maybe some Hooded Hydras, Polukranos, World Eater, or Gelatinous Genesis to burn off all that mana. Khalni Hydra can be played early and can do devastating amounts of damage. Great deck, keep up the good work, and hope my suggestions help!

MattDovah on Daruid: Seton-Storm

+1 for you, love this deck!

I've played Seton in Tiny Leaders and it was brutal.

I'd suggest Gelatinous Genesis and Beastmaster Ascension as alternate wincons, they're just not fair.

Also, if you want to submerge your opponent with grief.. well.. i'll leave Triumph of the Hordes here ;)
