Gnarlwood Dryad Discussion

GodTierPancake on Sultai Ruinator - Overflowing Grave

Wow, this deck seems really cool! If I had to make a couple of suggestions, Eternal Scourge is an excellent card to exile from graveyards, Grim Flayer is fantastic as an early beater that can fill your yard up, Geralf's Masterpiece works well with reanimation triggers and is at its finest when in your graveyard, and Gnarlwood Dryad loves full graveyards. +1 from me!

I love Vraska as well! I put her in my Casual Clue deck and she is just a dream whenever I'm able to cast her. Have you considered looking into the Delirium mechanic? I find that creatures like Ishkanah, Grafwidow and Gnarlwood Dryad are great for alternative avenues of board control. I use Vessel of Nascency and that seems to be the best way to get the cards into the graveyard to activate Delirium. The deck looks like a lot of fun though!

I would recommend taking out Gnarlwood Dryad as with only 4 artifacts and no enchantments it'll be hard to get delirium and you could move in Architect of the Untamed. Splashing blue would also help diversify and open some possibilities like Rogue Refiner or Confiscation Coup. I'm personally a big fan of nissa as well, you could try out Nissa, Steward of Elements or Nissa, Vital Force.

zephyr_chang For 1 drops, how about something like Jaddi Offshoot , Elvish Mystic or maybe Gnarlwood Dryad ?

Wasteland Viper and Narnam Renegade should be better than Pharika's Chosen. Or if you're willing to play around delirium, there's Gnarlwood Dryad and Deathcap Cultivator.

Excellent. I've found some other cards that I think will be helpful: Deadly Recluse, Nirkana Cutthroat, Glissa, the Traitor.

I like the Ambush Viper and the Gnarlwood Dryad though. Any other suggestions for cards like Liliana Vess to let me take control of opponents creatures in graveyards?

Don't just base it around Liliana Vess, because she takes 8 turns for her ability to activate, which is not what you want because it's so slow. If you still want to keep it as is, either add some control cards in (maybe hand control), or if you want to keep it as is put in cards like Ambush Viper, Gnarlwood Dryad, Narnam Renegade, or Pharika's Chosen. Also, try not to have to use In Garruk's Wake to win, especially since you only have one copy of the card. Finally, if you want to search for more cards, you can use to find them. I just searched for cards with deathtouch that costed 2 or less.

Ok. First off, you need more lands. You definitely don't have enough. Also, I think you should have a reliable way of getting stuff through. Bontu the Glorified is good, but you need more ways to exploit that, and Tattered Mummy, Weaponcraft Enthusiast, and Doomed Dissenter are definitely things to take out. From Beyond is too slow for a deck like this one. You want it to be more midrange-esque. Certainly Liliana, Death's Majesty needs to be taken out, unless you plan to put in more delirium-based cards, such as Grim Flayer, Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Traverse the Ulvenwald, and Gnarlwood Dryad. Consider Emrakul's Evangel as well. Voldaren Pariah  Flip should be a necessity. You need to put Bloodbriar in. I don't know why it isn't already there.
