Genesis Wave Discussion

also important to note that Genesis Wave does not "cast" the cards it puts into play.

I see you can make infinite green mana, so why not capitalize on that?. You could do this alternatively by adding Simic Growth Chamber (Voyaging Satyr target). Genesis Wave your deck to the field, add Laboratory Maniac as an alternate win con maybe as you can potentially do the the same with the Hydroid?. Tap everything on board with Icy Blast and/or Gridlock . Nimbus Swimmer for a giant flying sea monster. Walking Ballista to take out everyone/thing.
And if you're not into infinite things then perhaps you'd like Shaman of Forgotten Ways . A bit of creature ramp and a secondary ability that gets overlooked/forgotten alot that can net you a win, esp. against heavy lifegain decks. Well, hope this helps for your first cycle advice ;).

DrkNinja: "you have no win con other than making a player scoop"
This is completely incorrect. Please look at the kill loops section, it explains how it KILLS a whole table using Shaman of Forgotten Ways and Thousand-Year Elixir to kill a table as well, as a contingency to mill the whole table if that becomes a non-option.
I am sorry if you mistook my comment as inflammatory, I was not trying to aggravate you in any way, I just think you might've overlooked the actual KILL win-condition.
DavePeachtree: Genesis Wave is super awesome, and while it seems like a perfect fit, once I have enough mana to get anything worth while out of it, I usually have enough mana to actually win. As for Umbral Mantle , my only issue which is pretty dumb I'll admit, is the fact that I need an outlet. Once I have infinite mana, I will always need infinite bounces to pop off or draw at the very least.
Soren841: Thanks for coming in to my defense, good sir! and I think my Yeva deck is as competitive as SHE can get, but I don't believe she's cEDH by any means, which is what I will never admit to.
BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR: "it's as competitive as Yeva gets" <3 Stuff like this makes my day.
PlatinumOne: The kill loops thoroughly explains how, but the gist of it is either Shaman of Forgotten Ways killing the table when everything has been wiped out OR Geier Reach Sanitarium loops to mill the whole table.

I really love that the CMC is so low and would interested in seeing how fast this deck works out. I loved reading your primer and found that it had some great information... i dont really agree with dr ninja as least i think marwyn should stay in the deck.
Thanks for the brew

- Hardened Scales , Doubling Season would be good if you have so much +1/+1 counter synergie.
- Herald of Secret Streams is also nice with +1/+1 synergie and you play some creatures that can't be blocked.
Also the power 9 are not legal in Commander.

Craterhoof Behemoth is one that comes to mind when I think "strong large Green creature." Scavenging Ooze is great as well, providing graveyard hate and potential to grow quite large. I'll admit, Green is not my forte, so I am sure others have better suggestions for creatures.
Rather than just considering creatures, it might be a good idea to purchase some staples of Green. Here are some good options:
Sylvan Library - deck filtering with the possibility of paying life for cards is outstanding.
Defense of the Heart can be used to cheat out large creatures early in the game.
Green Sun's Zenith - allows you to find and cheat your best creature onto the battlefield.
Worldly Tutor - tutoring is always nifty.
Genesis Wave is a good way to flood the board with permanents.

RyuSama1990 Full offense, but Mono green devotion Genesis Wave decks have been played competitively since like 2013. Even without a successful combo, having Garruk and Gigantosaurus on turn 3 is more than adequate board presence for modern

Skoodly i will definitely keep Ramunap Excavator in mind, I think it really depends on the meta of whatever shop we are playing at (or the modern meta in general), but it certainly could be helpful depending on how often we see land destruction.
RyuSama1990 This is not a live or die by the combo type of deck, it isn't actually meant to go off on turn 2, that just shows the potential it has to go off. In terms of your understanding of the combo and us having to be on the draw, we do not have to be, we just need our T1 to be Forest and Arbor Elf , which is our go to T1 in most all games. Then T2 if we get lucky and draw our last piece(yes unlikely) then we can go off. Now as said we are not meant to go off on T2 but the more devotion we get on board the more mana we can produce to play our bigger threats, or go off with Genesis Wave . In terms of top decking once we play Genesis Wave you are partially correct. We can hit our Wistful Selkie 's which allow us to draw, but also by this time we should have enough board pressure early game that what we draw is not especially important, we will have more creatures on the board than our opponent and we can just go the weenie beatdown route. I encourage you to run this deck through its paces a few times and I think it might change your mind.
