Ghave, Guru of Spores Discussion

Permission to be blunt?

Whoever compiled the new draft of the Tier List (Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]) made some really baffling choices.

The Tier 0 generals are approximately correct (though Tana, the Bloodsower and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds should probably be higher), but everything below that is incredibly messed up.

Circu, Dimir Lobotomist Ghave, Guru of Spores Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker Jodah, Archmage Eternal Kraum, Ludevic's Opus Momir Vig, Simic Visionary Oona, Queen of the Fae Ruric Thar, the Unbowed The Mimeoplasm Tishana, Voice of Thunder Varolz, the Scar-Striped

These should definitely not be Tier 1. Meanwhile, Tier 2 is pretty messed up, and I don't even have enough time to type out the ways, but the short version: all three Niv-Mizzets at the same power??? Ishkanah, Grafwidow at the same power as The Locust God?? Selvala, Explorer Returned at the same power as Zada, Hedron Grinder?? Et cetera. Having played many of these, I can't agree.

I mean, I get what they're trying to do? But I think that abolishing the .5 tiers was a poor decision (since there's clear disparity within each tier) and I think they folded the wrong Tier 2 decks into the new Tier 1 category.

Thanks guys! So I've come down to Ramos, Dragon Engine, Ghave, Guru of Spores, or Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim.

Ramos, Dragon Engine would be a superfriends deck with a focus around making tokens. I've made superfriends before and noticed they really need something like tokens to defend them... And there are some bonkers token generators in the form of Liliana, the Last Hope and Elspeth, Sun's Champion among others. Plus I get all 5 colors here so any time a good token user or walker comes out I can just slide it into the deck.

Ghave, Guru of Spores is just a badass. He can easily go wide and tall, aggressive or aristocrats... If it is tokens he does it and in what are likely the best token colors.

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is easily one of the scariest commanders that I've played against. Once the deck is set with a decent life total you just don't get to have fun stuff. She doesn't produce tokens but she makes great use of them and missing green is a bit annoying for tokens but not the worst.

Those are my thoughts as of this time. I'm going to start just looking through my cards and see what I have. If you have thoughts that might push me towards one or the other feel free to share.

This should help give you some ideas.

Teysa, Orzhov Scion is a good one in black as is Ghave, Guru of Spores and Slimefoot, the Stowaway

Okay so I'm wildin' out over here and decided to draft up a Ghave, Guru of Spores deck centered around Divine Visitation. I chose Ghave so I can pack the deck with lots of doubling effects like Anointed Procession, Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, and Primal Vigor. I'll post it back here when I have a good core to work with.

legendofa on Mushrooms and trees, forest themed

1 month ago

First thing I see is a high mana curve without much ramp. I would kick Bosk Banneret and Treefolk Harbinger up to 4x each. Drop one of the Ghave, Guru of Spores and at least one Corpsejack Menace--it's a good card, and one of the best Fungus creatures. In this deck, though, it only interacts with Mycoloth and Ghave.

I understand you want to keep this on theme, and I really like the theme. The central problem is that the Treefolk cards don't interact with the Fungus cards, and vice versa. Right now, you have half of a Fungus tribal and half of a Treefolk tribal, and they have different goals. If you're willing to sacrifice theme for power and reliability, split this into two decks and build both. If theme is more important, keep it as it is. Really, it comes down to which option you would enjoy playing with more.

Algaemaster on Mushrooms grow on trees, and ...

1 month ago

Hi all!

So this is one of my first attemps to make a deck.... And I love mushrooms and wanted to make a flavourful deck that had basically mushrooms, and their environment, trees and treefolk... To be played with friends but still as mighty s possible. But I am honestly struggling to fit everything in properly.... And no clue about which spells to choose! Any feedback is welcomed. So far I got something like this:

Lands x20 Murmuring Bosk x4 Stirring Wildwood x2 Evolving Wilds x2 Krosan Verge x2 Forest x6 Plain x2 Swamp x2

Treefolk

Verdeloth the Ancient Unstoppable Ash Orchard Warden Leaf-Crowned Elder Treefolk Harbinger Bosk Banneret Dountless Dourbark Timber Protector Ghoultree Indomitable Ancients Great Oak Guardian/ Cloudcrown Oak

Fungi I really wasnt sure here, not sure if mushrooms would be better represented in this deck by little ones that create saprolings and that is it, or if it is more convenient to keep the good ones in... so had those ideas so far. Also wanted to keep all as mushroomy as possible.

Mycologist x1 Essential for the theme I am aiming for, was thinking of 2 of these. Thallid Shell-Dweller x2 Benefits from using toughness to power up along with treefolk? Corpsejack Menace x3 Ghave, Guru of Spores x2 Mycoloth x2

Enchantments/Spells... The same for this, trying to keep it as mushroom foresty as possible. [pGrow from the Ashes]] is very tempting for this reason... but having other fedges.... Seed Spark ? Lignify ? Saproling Symbiosis ?? Reach of Branches ?? Rootgrapple ?? Fungal Sprouting Fungal Plots Luminiscent Rain Verdant Embrace Infect Pollenbright Wings Whirlwind Was thinking of adding something like Wrath of god or something to clean up the other's cards while having the [Timber Protector] ... Thoughts? And for more multiplayer Sheltering Ancient Heartwood Storyteller Collective Voyage ??

Well, please I would appreciate any feedback. Playing 60 cards, not much restriction... Also potenetially could make it into an EDH deck? But my pals do not really have those although we could probably get into that.

The budget is around 40 bucks...

Thanks in advance.

All the best.

You can build Zombies in so many combinations - , , , , even just or

Merfolk could be , , , or even (Sygg, River Cutthroat but he's not a 'Lord').

You can sort of search Lords by doing something like "all merfolk" in card text on Scryfall, or "all +1".

I also just thought of or Angel Tribal - Lyra Dawnbringer, Kaalia of the Vast. is also quite angel-y but I can't think of a Lord commander that cares about angels in that combination...

Tribal is probably a good way to go for "monsters that benefit each other" - or something like +1/+1 counters? Ghave, Guru of Spores, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, there's loads more.

Damn I love Commander lol!
