Monomanamaniac on Archdruid's pennacle

2 months ago

Joker207755 this is my prototype helix pennacle deck. It is actually a very fun build, not finished yet but this is my first look. Decided to run it with druids this time (aside from nettle sentinel) for the Gilt-Leaf Archdruid as his finisher makes pennacle easier and harder to counter.

McToters on Seton Druid Tribal - with land destruction

3 months ago

Hellooooooo! I play Seton as a commander too! I like your deck list.

I’ll see if I can help you out. Feel free to give me feedback on mine as well (I feel like it still needs to be refined a bit). My version.

As far as boardwipes go I’m running All Is Dust , Setessan Tactics by itself or with Natural Affinity to destroy some lands as you aspire to do. Green Kamahl or Jolrael, Empress of Beasts help in this regard as well—and I see you are already running Kamahl. There’s also Oblivion Stone or a really janky option with Boompile . I’m also running Cyclone since mana is usually not a problem and this deals damage to each player as well which I like. And then there’s Back to Nature , Bane of Progress , Seeds of Innocence and Rampage of the Clans for artifact and enchantment wipes.

I just put a Paradox Engine in and I cant wait to see how it works.

There’s also Nemesis Mask and Bloodscent which give a different kind of unblockable.

Like I said check mine out for a slightly different take than what you have. I am also running some real weird enchantments like Hall of Gemstone and Primal Order for other ways to control and win.

Obviously no need to accept all of my suggestions but definitely stuff for you to think about. I personally need a Gilt-Leaf Archdruid for my deck still.


lagotripha on Replacement for Hydroid Krasis

Standard doesn't have a 'straight swap' for Hydroid Krasis, which is why its so expensive. It also looks fairly unique in modern, which is why you should keep an eye on it when the set rotates.

For modern I'd look at Genesis Wave combo to find replacements. Alternatively,a Nissa, Steward of Elements creatures deck offers tools.

Cards like Fathom Mage , Beck , Elvish Visionary Gilt-Leaf Archdruid , Inspiring Call Kiora, the Crashing Wave Life from the Loam engines etc etc all could have a place, the question is exactly what you'd want to build in modern to meet your local metagame.

Flagellum on MagicalHacker

MagicalHacker I will keep an eye out for it! But I apologize, as I may have worded my last post poorly. The deck I'm tearing apart is Karametra which seemed slow/clunky as a ramp type general and I was contemplating building Marwyn, the Nurturer , Feather, the Redeemed or Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle .

Marwyn would be another ramp general but is much faster. She has the support of elves and can achieve infinite mana quite easily even without Marwyn which is nice. Seton, Krosan Protector was another thought but druids are a bit more limited and are mostly useless without Seton (aside from Gilt-Leaf Archdruid ).

Feather seems fun/easy to build but I tore apart my Zada deck which was very similar (granted it focused on generating tokens which is what my Purphoros deck did). Voltron isn't necessarily my thing (Both Rafiq and Karlov taught me this) so I will probably abstain.

Lastly, Arixmethes is the only one not like anything I've made before but that might be due to it's type/color. Can also easily go infinite green but seems slower than Marwyn. However he is in Simic colors which can enable more shenanigans. A 12/12 is amusing for general but non-sea creature themed decks are a little harder to come by!

lagotripha on Santa's Revenge 2: The Return of Marwyn

Just found the special sauce. Gilt-Leaf Archdruid / Mirage Mirror . Its less immediately 'I win' than trying to jam Genesis Wave but is both wincon and card advantage- cantripping druids which pump up marwyn makes you storm.

Fallerup on Druidic Defenders (Eldrazi Twist)

4 months ago

did you consider Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury when you built this deck? her +2 ability gives you a druid each turn that taps for mana even if seton isn't out. this speeds up your production of druids for really nasty stuff like Gilt-Leaf Archdruid . of course, your oppnents will know this if they know your deck, so you will need to protect her, but at least it gives them another target to focus on instead of you.

PIZZ_PAZZ on Do you even lift, bro?!

Instant +1. It makes me so happy that someone is playing druid tribal. It always seemed like there was decent support for this but I never saw it. Have you considered Gilt-Leaf Archdruid ? Don't know how good it would be but the first ability seems to fit with your deck and the second ability would be hilarious if it was pulled off.
