When Generous Patron enters the battlefield, support 2. (Put a +1/+1 counter on each of up to two other target creatures.)

Whenever you put one or more counters on a creature you don't control, draw a card.

Generous Patron Discussion

heavyuser: A very strong case could be made for it if Paradox Engine got unbanned, but as it stands, it really isn't necessary. It was a very essential hail mary, since all of the weight was on Temur Sabertooth before, but we now have 3 viable combos and they're all tutorable.

However, please note that Generous Patron is consistently on the chopping block, and if you lack the proper infinite mana line and can't bounce it repeatedly it's pretty much a 3 for 2 when you need an outlet. You could make a consideration for it there, since infinite mana and Genesis Hydra is as good as having Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, which has become the best kind of outlet (ones we can sink our mana into).

As it stands, that would be the best swap, but in reality, we're really looking to replace Generous Patron with another Heartwood Storyteller, Runic Armasaur, Glademuse, or Beast Whisperer. Until we get another creature like that to replace her, she's just the "best" at what she does in monogreen.

If you want to keep playing with Genesis Hydra, swap patron out and let us know how that goes! :)

I like your apporach to abuse cards like Scheming Symmetry or Generous Patron which are meant to give your opponents a slight advantage and turn them in a double advantage for your team. Also, this deck's approach seems to be consistent advantage and not a single wincon combo. I like that, as this makes for more interesting gameplay at the deliberate sacrifice of power level.

berndibend: Two general reasons -- 1) I'm playing in less of a cEDH meta right now, so the artifact stax isn't as critical, and 2) I want to regain some of the former fun aspects of this deck that I feel I've been missing.

I haven't enjoyed this list as much as I could for the last few months, so I'm testing some changes. Archfiend of Ifnir + Generous Patron is a better combo for what I need than Squirrelcraft, I think, and I want to try Nature's Will as a combination Silence/Sword of Feast and Famine. Evolutionary Leap got very very silly with Liliana's Standard Bearer's printing, and is a good way to recover after a boardwipe. And I really want to find a slot for Harvest Season, dammit XD

I really like your take on Kraj, although I feel like with so few draw and tutor effects you might not have all the right pieces to pull off wins. Since you're on a budget I propose adding card draw that synergises with +1 counters that is repeatable such as Armorcraft Judge , Generous Patron , Mindless Automaton , Benthic Biomancer , and Shapers of Nature .

Rock and Stone brother!

You could consider adding a Desert package (Desert of the Glorified, Desert of the Indomitable, Grasping Dunes, Endless Sands, and possibly a few of the more minor ones) in order to enable Ifnir Deadlands. If you do, I might consider cutting Opal Palace as your colorless landcount is perhaps a bit on the high side.

Nesting Grounds seems fun in this list.

Cut Golgari Guildgate, Foul Orchard, Jungle Hollow, and Vivid Grove. They're taplands with no upside, and there's plenty of better options out there.

Tectonic Edge doesn't really fit the current meta, since nobody's running any of the broken lands that would actually warrant getting destroyed.

Your swamp count is only at...9, if you count the budget fetchlands and Urborg. That's a bit low to make Tainted Wood work.

Generous Patron, Seshiro the Anointed, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Skullclamp, Moldervine Reclamation, and Driven / Despair are your only ways to accrue much in the way of card draw. It's over the minimum threshold I'd set to run Reliquary Tower, but I'd keep in mind that the Tower is rarely going to do much for you, so cutting it wouldn't be the worst.

King_marchesa Thanks for the suggestion! I won't use Generous Patron because of the price, but I will definitely try other Support effects!

Generous Patron is great for this deck because it provides card draw and supports ((no pun intended)) your opponents creatures.
