Ghave, Guru of Spores Discussion
2 days ago
I'm impressed by the number of -drops in here right now. Almost as many as the land count!
Even with a few more pieces of ramp like Fellwar Stone, Solemn Simulacrum, and/or Gilded Lotus; def get your land count up to at least 36. Reflecting Pool is cool. One or more of each basic would be good because Blood Moon exists
You have an underlying token theme that might be better served in another deck like Marath, Will of the Wild or Ghave, Guru of Spores. They may need to come out to help streamline your strategy. Unless your opponents are hilariously slow; Goblin Offensive isn't a good fit. Rampaging Baloths is better with a lot of lands or fetch lands. Assemble the Legion mmmaybe worth keeping if you add Triumph of the Hordes wink wink
All of your current instants could be counterspells. Quietus Spike is an old pet card of mine, but slow when most of the creatures are a high cmc already. Hostility is meant for spells like Lightning Bolt
Above all have fun! Obviously some options I've offered are quite expensive. Build it how you want it. PEACE

MrFertilid Thank you for your suggestions! I realized after reading your comments that 99% of the time when I play Marath, Will of the Wild I don't use his ability to move counters. Normally I fire damage at creatures or players and make 1/1 tokens. I need to think outside the box more.
I love your suggestion of Archangel of Thune and Spike Weaver. I'm so glad the former is getting a reprint so that I can hopefully afford one. I have a Ghave, Guru of Spores deck I have been tweaking which has a focus on going wide with tokens so I know it'll find a home! I will definitely make use of Illusionist's Bracers too!
I think I will hold off on the Shinewend and Stingmoggie only because I want the creature to have an ETB effect for use with my tutor cards like Green Sun's Zenith, Natural Order, Eldritch Evolution, and Chord of Calling. A lot of my stuff dies as soon as it comes down so I need to get some value off an ETB. Thank you so much for looking at my deck and making suggestions.
I will check out some of your decks, cheers!

Put Death's Presence in this list and you've got the usual Ghave build. I get it, I wanted to build Ghave as well, but I realized this guy's kinda solved:
And then filled with supporting stuff like:
Sigil Captain (in fewer builds, but I like him a lot)
So it's more like a fixed 20 card deck with fillers like removal, tutors and stuff.
But I have to admit Muraganda Petroglyphs is a nice addition though. ;)

Ow that's a good one! Well I learned that Living Death in the end does work with Reyhan's ability, as on this one reyhan does chooses a target after the whole card has resolved, but for the likes of Chasm Skulker, Abzan Ascendancy and Gift of Immortality it does not as originally intended by fieldwipes, but that's okay. Chasm Skulker especially does it's job already by creating tokens.
Instead i'm gonna add some totem armor's like Bear Umbra and Eel Umbra, test around with the likes of Sheltering Light, Shield of the Oversoul, Bontu the Glorified and maybe Ghave, Guru of Spores, Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni or Deathbringer Regent.

Consider Death's Presence and Necropolis Regent for more counter shenanigans, cards like Rishkar's Expertise and Greater Good for drawing cards based on power, and more sac outlets in general like Ghave, Guru of Spores and Ashnod's Altar to work with the cards in this deck and some I suggested here.

No problem dude, If you run Ghave, Guru of Spores you might consider Master Biomancer, as they work together really well. Another good thing to include for kill pressure might be Chasm Skulker and Altered Ego for utility, as it can copy basically anything triggering some effects with insane numbers of counters.. you want another doubling season with legs? here i copy the Deepglow Skate i just casted with 6 +1/+1 counters on it... oh wait did i say 6? lemme just double them real quick!

That's pretty cool, I have a similar combo in mind for my Commander deck, but it requires several pieces to work. The Commander is Ghave, Guru of Spores, The combo in mind is to Have Cathars' Crusade in Play, use Ghave's ability to make a Saproling triggering Crusade (replacing the counter removed and creating more if you have other creatures or additional counter effects) then you sacrifice the Saproling to Ashnod's Altar giving you two colorless, allowing you to repeat the cycle. For Mana of Color, simply use a Winding Constrictor and Gemstone Array, same process just feed the 2 'Glass' Mana into the array make 2 charge counters, expend one to make a new Saproling, I wouldn't try to do this for very long as someone might Cast Krosan Grip, when they get tired of you holding up the game with your many triggers.
