Gilt-Leaf Winnower Discussion

greyninja on Morophuckin' Elves!

@LordTsukune there are a few black elves; like Gilt-Leaf Winnower, Hunter of Eyeblights, Lys Alana Scarblade, Maralen of the Mornsong, Ayara, First of Locthwain, Blightsoil Druid, etc. I guess I just didn't think they were worth it. I'll take your opinion on the matter tho

Sunbird's Invocation and Stolen Strategy are good generic red gas. They can go in most any red deck, for sure. If you look at my land base you can see that I'm relying heavily on green since that's elves' most dominant color, but I'm splashing all other colors for support. If I did add them, what would you suggest to come out?

I do actually have Fist of Suns in here, so I'll do some updating this morning to match my irl list.

Thanks for the comment! I upvoted some of your decks in return! Don't forget to upvote here as well! Cheers

Executioner's Capsule is rather good with glissa. Gilt-Leaf Winnower is a kill spell on an elf that can double trigger with yarok out. eye blight's ending is elf tribal, but Hero's Downfall is more flexible.

Sorry for the double post. Gilt-Leaf Winnower would be fun as well.

Possibly add Glory-Bound Initiate and Champion of Rhonas to abuse exert

701.37b A permanent can be exerted even if it's not tapped or has already been exerted in a turn. If you exert a permanent more than once before your next untap step, each effect causing it not to untap expires during the same untap step.

Few others to consider

Den Protector really good recursion warrior

Hidden Dragonslayer removal warrior

Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist control opponent attack and blocks

Samut, Voice of Dissent really good overall warrior and gives haste

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed burns casters like crazy

Gilt-Leaf Winnower removal one a warrior

You're a bit light on ways to interact with your opponent. If they play something, you don't have a good way to get it off the table. Reclamation Sage is an elf that can hit artifacts and enchantments and Lys Alana Scarblade, Gilt-Leaf Winnower are elves that can deal with creatures. I'd say removal spells, Hero's Downfall, Go for the Throat etc would also be good options as they can hit more creatures than the two other elves i mentioned.

Trtl, your very welcome, glad I could help. More green is the right direction, it will bring a lot more consistency.

Even though I think more green is the right way to go I'm suggesting a black card, haha. I've done a little Frontier research and it looks like Gilt-Leaf Winnower would be a great sideboard card. She's an Elf and can kill a huge amount of the best creatures in the format. Most notable Siege Rhino and Spell Queller, but in just about all matchups she has a target. Beastcaller Savant can help to cast a Winnower which helps the . I like that Sylvan Messenger can find Winnower which is very nice in matchups where you want her.

I'm not a fan of cards like Stain the Mind. I think Duress and other cheap discard is better. You have Duress and Warping Wail to stop board wipes. Wail is a pretty creative sideboard option you have come up with to stop board wipes, Languish, good job. Unfortunately, you're not playing enough mana sources to cast it. Only 4x Llanowar Wastes can cast it. Only four land sources to cast Wail is not enough. You're going to want at least 8x colorless land sources to be able to cast Wail when you need it, turn four. Without more colorless sources I'm afraid it's best to cut Wail for other sideboard options.

An idea to keep Wail is to add Aether Hub. Hub can first make any color of mana as well as colorless. It's not ideal by any means because you're not using an energy strategy. Hub is also not a very budget friendly land although it really should be seeing how it's an uncommon.

You could add both Hub and replace Beastcaller Savant with Servant of the Conduit to get energy to power both. This move would give you a mana Elf who can make any color of mana at least two times as well as a land which can also make colorless to cast Wail.

Another option would be to include Yavimaya Coast in place of Forests because it can make both green mana and colorless.

Hey, I think you could take advantage of having access to black and little more here.

I'd include Prowess of the Fair, Mind Slash, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Skullclamp and Patriarch's Bidding.

Also consider adding Pernicious Deed and/or Vraska the Unseen, they come in handy sometimes.

Things I'd cut would be Garruk, Apex Predator, Desert Twister, Whirlwind, Gilt-Leaf Winnower, Frontier Guide, Titania's Chosen and Sylvan Ranger. These are just the easiest I saw to cut atleast. Hope that helps !
