Genesis Wave Discussion

Eiti3 on Most explosive ramp in Sultai?

2 days ago

Depending on Land/Rock count, Genesis Wave might be decent.

New Frontiers would be pretty good if you have a Sire of Stagnation in play.

griffstick on Most underrated commander of all time

3 days ago

Here's he thing about spell mastery in this deck. The instants and sorcery spells, half of them get lands. So by the time I use Awakening it doesnt work that good... just hate to take another ramp spell out of the deck. But it should be replaced with somthing better at least. As for Boundless Realms I need it. It pairs up so well with my big spells stuff like Genesis Wave

Emzed on It's Not Easy Being Green

5 days ago

I keep hearing/reading that people think green has trouble drawing cards. Sure, it can't really compete with blue, and you can certainly argue black comes in second, but green has great card advantage options as well. In my eyes, used correctly, they can be even better than most black tools (with the exceptions of Ad Nauseam and Necropotence which are both insane). I'm not going to go into detail, but just list you some green card advantage: Sylvan Library, Glimpse of Nature, Harmonize, Fecundity, Skullmulcher, Greater Good, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Genesis Wave, Soul of the Harvest, Primordial Sage, Recycle, Regal Force, Shamanic Revelation, Rishkar's Expertise, Praetor's Counsel, Seasons Past, Vizier of the Menagerie. Also, you have access to colorless cards like Mind's Eye, Memory Jar, Skullclamp, Horn of Greed and Slate of Ancestry. Obviously most of those cards require specific circumstances to work, like a high powered creature, a big number of creatures or lots of mana. Just select the ones that fit what your deck is trying to do and test to find the right number.

Velkaarn on Thrasios and Kydele: Eldrazi Envoys

Cool idea, I think I want to give this a spin later (note to self!) as I think I have most of the things you included. Have you fired a successful Genesis Wave out of this? I presently have only one copy and I struggle with decision where to actually employ it, results were surprisingly poor in an old Selesnya deck where I last used it.

Have you considered Harmonize to get more gas? I know its not a control deck but it can help you dig for things like Swords to Plowshares. I would also add in Genesis Wave as a finisher. If you do end up cutting some bigger things as other people suggested I would cut Selvala, Heart of the Wilds as well.

Odric, Master Tactician can also be good if you are having trouble with blockers.

I am looking for a Genesis Wave, Warstorm Surge, Collective Voyage Veteran Explorer Zhur-Taa Ancient Dictate of Karametra Heartbeat of Spring Mana FlareNew Frontiers and Purphoros, God of the Forge to finish up my Xenagod deck. Notable value cards I have are a Puresteel Paladinfoil icon, 3x Exquisite Blood the rest of my cards are in my binder if you see anything it would be great to get these cards.
