Giant Growth Discussion

I love taking a pile of cards and seeing what you can turn it into! I don't know which cards you have or what budget you have for acquiring new ones, but I'll list some cheap suggestions I have for a variety of archetypes you could pursue.
1) Simic ramp: Already goes well with Air Elemental, Archetype of Endurance, Oakgnarl Warrior, Overgrown Battlement, Yavimaya Wurm, Simic Keyrune. Some inclusions might be Llanowar Elves, Axebane Guardian, Coiling Oracle, Maraleaf Pixie, Beanstalk Giant, Terra Stomper, Lorthos, the Tidemaker. The goal is to accelerate into big threats.
2) U/G unblockable: Already goes well with Marang River Prowler, Downpour, Giant Growth, Might of the Masses, Aqueous Form, Coastal Piracy, Turntimber Grove. Some inclusions might be Curious Obsession, Daring Saboteur, Mist-Syndicate Naga, Ohran Viper, Trygon Predator, Distortion Strike. The goal is to get value from hitting with unblocked creatures.
3) U/G tempo/control: Already goes well with Breaching Hippocamp, Cloaked Siren, Mist Raven, Fog, Negate, Unsummon, Voyage's End, Claustrophobia. Some inclusions might be Vapor Snag, Dissolve, Mana Leak, AEtherling, Delver of Secrets Flip, Devastation Tide. The goal is to deny the opponent their things while playing tricky threats of your own.
I also see cards in here that could work with mono green Assault Formation, simic +1/+1 synergy, or flying tribal, so you have a lot of options. As a sidenote, I'd also recommend upping your land count to about 24 while you have so many 5+ cost cards in the deck. Anyway, good luck!

While all the basic lands have been printed as rare in special editions, and Giant Growth back as a promo rare, Serra Angel is by far the most commonly reprinted rare that has been printed in a normal set as a rare, in multiple core sets, welcome decks, etc. It's last printed however was indeed uncommon, and so for the most commonly printed card with it's latest printing being a rare would be Shivan Dragon. It has 19 total reprints, and it's Core Set 2020 appearance is at rare!

BRG24 Thanks for giving the deck a look! So with Season of Growth I think there is some good value there for the scry trigger with all the tokens dropping, but unfortunately since copied spells are not technically "cast" I dont think it would trigger any card draw after the first. Silverfur Partisan is definitely an interesting route to explore since it would grow exponentially.If there are some efficient wolf token generators, that might be a good thing to explore. I love Giant Growth, I think depending on the matchup, the trample from Barge In might be more helpful? I could go either way on that one. But now Stony Strength is a whole new ballgame. The untap on that would make for a pretty huge swing if the opponent attacks into your tapped out board. I'll start looking at the wolf generating, and if I can find something efficient it might be worth splashing green just for stony strength. Really awesome suggestions Thanks!

Nice deck. Not sure if this is what you want to do with the deck, but perhaps considering a green splash might be a good idea? Season of Growth would be absurd with Zada, allowing you to draw tons of cards, while Silverfur Partisan potentially giving you massive boards. Also gives you access to great combat tricks that would just create oppressive boards, like Giant Growth or Stony Strength. As I said, not sure if this is where you want to go with the deck, but hopefully this is helpful.

Unfortunately, you cannot go infinite with either of those cards. If there was a static ability that gave my creatures persist, that would work, but with the way those cards are worded. After the first time a creature that was targeted by Cauldron Haze it a Cauldron of Souls dies, they would come back, but since they left the battlefield, they would no longer have persist. An example of this in a different context would be if you targeted some creature with Giant Growth to give it +3/+3, and then later bounced it with Eldrazi Displacer, the creature would come back without having that +3/+3 from giant growth.

A creature with Hexproof can't be the target of spells and abilities controlled by the opponents of that creature's controller. In other words, my Slippery Bogle can't be the target of your spells/abilities. However, Plax says that the enchanted creature can't be the target of spells/abilities that your opponents control. So, a creature enchanted with Plax can't be the target of spells/abilities controlled by the opponents of Plax's controller. In other words, if you enchant my Bear Cub with Shielding Plax, I can't target it with Giant Growth, but you can still Murder it.
TL;DR, Plax doesn't give Hexproof because you can still target the enchanted creature even if you don't control that creature.
Hope this helps!!

Planeswalkers are very popular for casual players as well. Their slow speed to develop is not as big a deal in casual magic.
One of the things planeswalkers do that most other cards don't do is Grow on their own. Beginning the turn you play them, many planeswalker cards become stronger and more game-threatening the longer they remain in play and activate their + abilities. And you don't spend anything to make them grow after the turn you cast them. Adding what can end up being a game-winning threat you dont need to spend mana or other cards on to maintain is very strong in a slower game environment.
Some of them even put constant pressure on your opponents or produce constant threats which allows you the freedom to focus on building your board state, or combo, or whatever.
Card Quality Matters. Planeswalkers, in many cases, are just a better card to play than many others. In formats where turn 5 is not the end of the game, inevitability matters and planeswalkers provide that more than drawing into a Lightning Bolt cor Giant Growth. Compare those two cards to Nissa, Who Shakes the World or Chandra, Torch of Defiance.

This deck is already pretty solid. The only draw back for 1v1 would be Nulltread Gargantuan. It is a strong drop for 3, but leaves you down an extra creature. That creature then will take 2 more turns until it is back and can attack (unless it has haste). Also, if you get stuck not having anything out on turn 3, then it is useless.
I would add cards like Steel of the Godhead, Distortion Strike, and Aqueous Form. Something to give the exalted creatures a free shot at a player since they are attacking alone. That would be better than Bant Charm or Unsummon.
A solid land would be Cathedral of War. Make a big difference in this deck, but may limit your playability due to the colorless aspect of it.
2 creatures that would be really good would be Sublime Archangel and Rafiq of the Many. The second not as cheap, but 4 would not put you over $30. That double strike would be killer. Even Giant Growth would be a good instant for an unblockable exalted creature.
I would look into getting up to 4 Qasali Pridemage if you can. It has a lot going on for just a 2 drop and with exalted, it is going to be a good attacker on turn 2 right away.
