Grazing Gladehart Discussion
3 weeks ago
xaerusbladeI just want to say thank you for all of the responses I have been getting, they have been really helpful. So what I picked was an aggressive deck with tokens. I added most of my life gain cards to my sideboard, if not getting rid of them. I moved both of the Nyx-Fleece Ram to the sideboard, as well as Grazing Gladehart but I might just get rid of him. I also thought I could keep Nyx-Fleece Ram on the main board and use it to bulk up Ajani's Pridemate. I took a look at the "Little Kid GW" Deck and I saw a couple cards I really enjoyed, which also helped fix my mana curve, including 4 Watchwolf and 2 Narnam Renegade. I did pick more multi-color lands and also got some fetchlands including 3 Knight of the White Orchid. I did also add 2 Renegade Rallier for Revolt with Beast Within As well as using Knight of the White Orchid to get the land back. Now I would like more ways to get more land back, so I would like some more fetchland ideas if anyone else has any other, but I am still wondering if I should go the route of Landfall. That will also decide if I should keep Emeria Angel. I also got rid of Kemba, Kha Regent with the equipment. Now I did add 3 of the "Soul Sisters" I really like this as the life gain due to the fact that it is supposed to be a token deck and having that will help. Now I have a question about my planeswalkers and if I should keep both of them, none of them, or one, or replace them? A creature I have also been on the fence with is Lone Rider Flip. My deck is really not so much into lifegain now so most of it is moved to the sideboard but idk if it is even necessary to do that. Now this deck was originally designed to be a token deck, with spells such as Selesnya Charm, Call of the Conclave, Gather the Townsfolk, and Retreat to Emeria. But idk if that would even be the beast strategy at this point. I think that I need to either pick Landfall or token but I would really like some help in that regard. What should I do with Qasali Pridemage? It seems kinda out of place. And I wanted to move him to my sideboard. But I do like the Removal
Now an idea I had come up when I found the Beast Within card. My idea was I could use it to get rid of a land, which in turn would activate Revolt. Then after that put down a land, or use a fethland to get the landfall which could, in turn, get me more creatures through, and other Retreat to Emeria. Idk how well that would work but its an idea that popped up in my head
Again I want to thank you all for the suggestions and I really appreciate it

Spelling the link to your deck right, would probably lead to more comments, awesome or otherwise in nature. Making it a real link, even more so.
Played much edh, have you? so many 1-ofs...
If you want to play aggressively, you have to reduce the amount of 4, 5, and 6-cost creatures, and add more 1 and 2 cmc creatures instead. Buff up the best cards you have for the first 3 turns to a full set. Consistency is the keyword for this: Having 4 enchantments and 1 Ajani's Chosen is the opposite. It is unlikely that in any game you'll get to play an enchantment while you have ajanis chosen on the table. Grazing Gladehart is also a mistake in an aggressive deck - 3 mana for a 2/2, and then you have to wait for a land in order to gain life (which is a very non-aggressive thing to do). Actually: forget about lifegain, unless you use it for something (soul sisters is an example of a deck, that uses lifegain for something (other than just having a lot of life). In many games, you'd rather have cards that attack or disrupt your opponent, rather than give you a bit of life. Aggressive creatures for a selesnia deck, could instead be something like Strangleroot Geist or Dryad Militant. Qasali Pridemage is also a solid creature in selesnya decks, and Voice of Resurgence too, if you don't mind spending a bit on your deck.
Terra Stomper, Arctic Nishoba, Felidar Sovereign, and Jedit Ojanen of Efrava could be removed, to make room for 4 Wilt-Leaf Liege. Probably you can point to games that these 4, big beefy creatures have won for you, or could have won "if only...", but reality is that modern games are over long before you get to play them (including games vs UW cotrol, although they might spend 15 turns actually killing you). You could let go of all 4 enchantments, to make room for 4 Path to Exile - this might look like a boring exchange, that makes your deck predictable. And it is. But it is also the best removal you have in selesnya, at the best cost.
You have a pile of things with landfall. And that is fine. But... landfall isn't really a good mechanic in modern (with a few exceptions, like Steppe Lynx), and it is certainly not good without fetchlands (I know... stupidly expensive pieces of cardboard). Fetchlands also enable revolt, for something like Narnam Renegade and Renegade Rallier.
Lands: You need lands that give both colors of mana, and which enters the battlefield untapped. Brushland, Razorverge Thicket, Sunpetal Grove, Temple Garden, and probably more, have the possibility of coming into play untapped, and definitely improves your deck. Stirring Wildwood is useful in another way, same as Gavony Township.
You have to make a decision with your deck: aggressive, lifegain, or landfall. but currently it loses to lack of focus. I'd say go with GW aggro - it's a good deck for starters, have some good options for sideboard, and you can upgrade from budget cards to more expensive cards as you go along.

Long ass advice incoming:
[ [ island ] ]
(If you remove the spaces inbetween the brackets) > Island
1x Adventuring Gear 1x Ajani Goldmane 1x Ajani's Chosen 2x Ajani's Mantra, 1x Ajani's Pridemate 1x Ajani, Mentor of Heroes 1x Arctic Nishoba 1x Behemoth Sledge 1x Call of the Conclave 2x Emeria Angel 1x Felidar Sovereign 14x Forest 1x Gather the Townsfolk 2x Grazing Gladehart 1x Grove of the Guardian 1x Guardians' Pledge 1x Increasing Savagery 1x Jedit Ojanen of Efrava 1x Kemba, Kha Regent 1x Oath of Gideon 16x Plains 2x Precinct Captain 2x Pride Sovereign 1x Primal Bellow 2x Regal Caracal 1x Retreat to Emeria 1x Selesnya Charm 1x Staff of the Wild Magus 1x Terra Stomper1x Blossoming Sands
Just a hint if you come looking for help in the future :)
The first thing I would like to add is that you are playing way too much land. In a 60 card deck with a steap mana curve, you probably only want 24-25 lands. Now your deck is currently 64. That's not too bad, but if you could shave it down to 60 that'll be doing yourslef a sall favor. (Consistancy is just lovely.)
Secondly, I can spot a few cards that I either find too bad to play, imo, or doesn't really fit your strategy too well.
Ajani's Chosen The card is perfectly reasoable as is right now, if not a little too clonky, but if you decide to take my advice on the Mantra's it's probably not playable afterwards.
Felidar Sovereign Awesome as it is, seems like a very unlikely wincondition for you. If you ever get to a point where it would win you the game, you are probably already winnning.
You have a couple more cards, that I'm a bit unhappy with, but are reasonable for the moment being.
Thirdly if you want to play a slower deck, you have to be able to interact.
If you can't answer the things your opponent does from time to time, you are going to lose to a lot of combo decks.
Fourthly: Here are some cards I hink you should look into, priced around the 1$ mark, or less. (If you want that lifegain theme to stick)
Qasali Pridemage Realy powerful card, that happens to be a cat, and can sometimes "interact" with opposing gameplans.
More Ajani's Pridemate - It's a great finisher, if you have some lifegain.
Condemn - Cheap creature removal.
More Blossoming Sands, fixing mana gaining life.
Blessed Alliance - Everthing goo in this world.
Eidolon of Rhetoric - put this in your sideboard, you wont regret it.
You are more than welcome to ask me for advice if you need an experienced player for something :) and good luck.

Oh and also forgot to mention about nice little friend of mine Aegis of the Gods, and protecting it with Swiftfoot Boots or something, would be a fun friend to play with.would counter some of that "mill" deckand also few card types for gaining life, would be Creatures with "landfall" Grazing Gladehart or so, and/or Oran-Rief Hydra, also if opponent has some creatures u wanna get rid of, Prey Upon throwing this on ur creature that could kill the other creature works too. Hope these helped somehow xD

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I have some suggestions for you:
- First of all, I would highly recommend cutting down to 60 cards. I could talk about this all day, but suffice it to say that every card you add over your minimum reduces the chances of you drawing your best cards. Normally 23-26 lands is an appropriate amount for a casual deck.
- After that, I would start by cutting the Trigon of Mendings, the Retreat to Kazandus, the Tamiyo's Journals, the Corpsejack Menaces, the Grazing Gladeharts, and the Scute Mob.
- Some cards that might be good in here include:
- Ajani's Pridemate
- Serra Avatar
- Sun Droplet
- Chalice of Life Flip
- Survival Cache
In any case, enjoy your deck!

Based on your favorite cards, I'll list a few generals that do similar things as them.
Voice of Resurgence: Great cards in both Rhys the Redeemed and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, seeing as how they both want a lot of creatures to pump the token, as well as being able to clone the token. Also, voice is IMO a very underplayed card in EDH based on the number of counterspells and other instant speed tricks.
Scapeshift: Obviously we want a go-big landfall deck, similiar to Scapeshift/Valakut decks in modern. This points me towards Omnath, Locus of Rage as a landfall payoff, or Mina and Denn, Wildborn, a landfall enabler. Omnath decks typically play more of the mass landfall effects ala Scapeshift and Boundless Realms, with a few big landfall payoffs like Avenger of Zendikar and Rampaging Baloths as replacements for Omnath in case he gets Nevermored or something. Mina and denn decks are more likely to play more land-to-hand type cards like Sprouting Vines to make mina and denns ability more potent, as well as mass landfall payoffs, from omnath to Grazing Gladehart, Zendikar's Roil, etc.
Bitterblossom sees probably the most play in Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, as his lifegain negates the downside, or pillowfort decks like Queen Marchesa that want to drag the game on with cards like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Resistance, Suppression Field, etc. Think modern hatebears, but a lot bigger. And more hate, less bears.
Kor Spiritdancer = Uril, the Miststalker. All I can say there. Spiritdancer also goes in a huge amount of enchantress decks, with commanders like Bruna, Light of Alabaster, Rafiq of the Many, etc. Usually voltron. Can also be played in the much jankier and much more casual curse tribal deck. Think Curse of Misfortunes and Curse of Thirst as wincons. They're auras too.
Thoughtweft Trio: Only place I can think of is some terrible Kithkin tribal deck. Wizened Cenn is your only real lord... you can have Adaptive Automaton-esque cards as well. Pretty sure that in a Commander clash (MtgGoldfish) episode a while ago Richard played kithkin tribal, so you can look that up. Just remember, this deck is NOT good. I mean, i assume you like this card as just a cheap beater card, in which case maybe just Saskia the Unyielding beatdown might be your kind of thing.
All of these decks can be made for pretty cheap and upgraded pretty high.

Hey hoardofnotions, good to see you again,
I really like Lifegift and I would love to try it out. However, I don't think I want to replace offshoot with it. That card is mainly there because it's a defensive 1-drop to deter aggressive decks, while still being relevant to our strategy. It also has the benefit that I more often end up with 2 landfall cards before I drop my commander.
I will try it out and see how it performs. Thanks for the tip!
