Great Oak Guardian Discussion

Rzepkanut on Selvala, friend to elves and beasts

I love playing this commander, mine is one of my favorite decks. Plus I love Elf decks, I've even got 2 currently (one paper one online). A few of the super synergy cards you will love using are missing. First off Elvish Guidance is another Priest of Titania. Ways to give haste and have more Selvala untaps per turn like Instill Energy, Nature's Chosen, Seeker of Skybreak, & Thousand-Year Elixir can also combo with mana elves too. Then there is Great Oak Guardian, which usually also truly ramps you from casting it in an elf deck even though it costs 6 mana, plus its a combat trick if needed. If you need to find space I think your card function groups (removal, draw, ramp, etc.) are fairly balanced, and the untap effects are essentially ramp/draw spells. So I would sub out those kind of cards for them. Here's a link to my lists for convenience:

Honestly tapping for 5+ mana is really easy to do. Also if you have a haste enabler out such as Concordant Crossroads or Lightning Greaves you can just bounce Yisan and run through the verses again if need be. You seldom need to do this though, just go for broke and race to Great Oak Guardian then all your dorks untap so even if one dork isn't tapping for 5+ all of them together will. It is stupidly easy to win with this deck, even through Pithing Needle/Lignify or board wipes.

I would do the following:

Add Crop Rotation cut Sylvan Scrying

Add Nature's Claim cut Krosan Grip

General cuts: Skyshroud Elf, Zhur-Taa Druid, Lotus Petal, Xenagosthe Reveler

General additions: Blood Moon, Magus of the Moon, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Village Bell-Ringer, Great Oak Guardian

Then cut Strip Mine for basic Plains if supporting the Blood Moon package.

RedReveng3 on [Competitive] Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

Hello Kyrezx, I'm actually in the process of making a primer for Yisan. But here's some wincons:

  1. Temur Sabertooth + Wirewood Symbiote + CMC 1 Elf + Mana dork (Priest of Titania, Elvish Archdruid, Karametra's Acolyte or Selvala, Heart of the Wilds) that taps for 5 or more. This gives us infinite mana, and infinite untaps (from Wirewood Symbiote). This is the main combo that I try to assemble because all of the pieces are tutorable.

  2. Big Mana dork + Staff of Domination or Umbral Mantle. Staff of Domination just allows us to win on the spot, while Umbral Mantle requires us to have an outlet. Keep in mind that Selvala goes infinite with Umbral Mantle, so if I draw Mantle, I try to tutor for her ASAP.

  3. Big Mana Dork + Temur Sabertooth + Haste enabler (Lightning Greaves or Concordant Crossroads

  4. Great Oak Guardian + Selvala, Heart of the Wilds or Earthcraft or Big Manadorks. This gives us infinite mana and power/toughness.

Ronnok01 on My Animar Deck

I am new to this site, but have played animar for a long time, and so this is mearly my opinion, but i would suggest cutting some mana dorks for some cheap blue creatures whose sole purpose is to put counters on animar: Dream Stalker, Man-o'-War and Shrieking Drake. These repeatedly put counters on animar by bouncing themselves to your hand immediatly. I would also recommend Peregrine Drake, not for combo, but for free land untapping. Lightning Greaves is also great as you play them, next turn play animar and instantly equip. I would also recommend utility lands such as Llanowar Reborn for instant counters. Also Gruul War Chant is better than Goblin War Drums, so run that instead. I will list off a few other suggestions, but I just like to run them personaly, so you choose: Mulldrifter, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Sylvan Library, Bane of Progress, Platinum Angel, Forgotten Ancient, Great Oak Guardian and Mystic Snake.

ShaperSavant Really? Nice to see it found a place, but are you giving up on the Selvala, Heart of the Wilds + Great Oak Guardian line?

Here is another infinite combo for you... Great Oak Guardian + Temur Sabertooth + Selvala = infinite mana and creature pumps. Nice deck.
