Green Sun's Zenith Discussion

Thank you for your suggestions. Vernal Bloom is a must. Will go in.

I was thinking of adding Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, I just don't know if it's enough impact, but I'll definitely try it out if I find room.

Krosan Tusker and Sylvan Ranger seem kind of weak to warrant an inclusion.

Rude Awakening was another card I was thinking of adding. Definitely must go in.

Garruk Wildspeaker is interesting, but I like Kamahl, Fist of Krosa a lot more. You get the overrun effect and deter boardwipes for just 2 more mana.

Green Sun's Zenith is very good, will add once I find room

Rishkar's Expertise I thought about for a while, I put in Garruk Primal Hunter for a Soul's Magesty type of effect, but Rishkars does seem a lot better. Will add.

Shamanic Revelation is more for a token deck I feel. This deck doesn't go wide. The only time I can see it's use is with Kamahl.

Natural Order is pretty good. I feel like I need more green creatures to get use out of it. That's why I want to add Terastodon or some other big green dude which can be tutored with Natural Order or Green Sun's Zenith.

Song of the Dryads and Beast Within are great, I will add them once I find room.

Regarding the cuts....

Garruk, Primal Hunter for Rishkar's Expertise. Very similar effect to his -3.

From Beyond for Vernal Bloom. Vernal bloom is much more impactful.

Boundless Realms is my FAVORITE CARD of the deck and helps you ramp and thin your deck. Will always be kept.

Seer's Sundial for Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip. Helps me get a forest to the hand and can eventually flip to do more work. Test inclusion

Genesis Hydra for Terastodon. The hydra is nice but I have had some bad experiences during the playtest.

Woodland Bellower for Rude Awakening. Bellower has been underperforming with it's limited creature tutoring.

Genesis Wave is WAY TOO GOOD to be cut. Most of the deck is permanents and this card does SERIOUS work.

Hello, as an Azusa player myself here are some recommendations...

First and foremost I'd play a lot more basic Forests and add Vernal Bloom.

Since you're already playing Exploration, Ramunap Excavator , and such, I'd also play Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Krosan Tusker, and Sylvan Ranger to keep the lands flowing in your hand and avoid having 1 card in hand turn 3 scenarios.

Rude Awakening can be a finisher and when it's not it allows explosive turns with all the mana doublers

Speaking of mana doublers often times Garruk Wildspeaker can be played for free with his +1 ability and allows for an Overrun-type effect the next turn he comes into play, which can be a win con

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is also great in keeping boardwipes in check, or finishing games.

Green Sun's Zenith is just my favorite creature tutor in green

Rishkar's Expertise because the value of this card is huge.

Shamanic Revelation can be quite good in some cases.

Natural Order, i would play that card. It's too good to pass.

And here are some of the best spot removal in green : Krosan Grip, Song of the Dryads, Beast Within.

As for the cuts, my personal choices would be Garruk, Primal Hunter, From Beyond, Boundless Realms, Seer's Sundial, and i would choose between the genesis cards and some of the eldrazi that requires casting. They do not synergize well and my choice would be to cut Genesis Hydra and Genesis Wave.

Hope this helps, all of these recommendations comes from my playtesting, but is still personal since my playgroup is probably different from yours.

Have fun

I like your creature list a lot!

Maybe also an Aegis of the Gods to buy some time with a Mark of Asylum in the deck, as well? An Asceticism and/or a Steely Resolve might also help protect your creatures.

Some other value creatures to test might include Caustic Caterpillar and Terastodon.

Cards like Craterhoof Behemoth, Overrun and Triumph of the Hordes can help you close games more quickly. You also have access to a lot of wipes including Day of Judgment and Wrath of God (and several more in W). It would be a fine strategy to use something like Worldly Tutor to grab Avacyn, Angel of Hope and the board wipe a ton.

Genesis Wave and Green Sun's Zenith might be good mana sinks, and Shamanic Revelation might complement the card draw of Harmonize.

Happy brewing!

T/O wont let me comment on your Gishath deck for some reason. I think you should consider adding some more interaction, something like Chaos Warp or Oblation. Green Sun's Zenith also seems pretty useful in your list, finding ramp and threats, it has a role at every point in the game.

If your using Mana dorks maybe mix with Fyndhorn Elves just so you don't get stuck with them destroying all creatures with the same name type effect

Maybe it 1Birchlore RangersI would also say 4 Heritage Druid is usually what I see but don't know a lot about legacy.

Wirewood Symbiote is a great card. The main spells I can think of are Green Sun's Zenith Natural Order Glimpse of Nature with green sun prob the only budget friendly one.

You won't draw Fauna Shaman every game. Summoner's Pact, Tooth and Nail, Natural Order, Chord of Calling, Green Sun's Zenith, and Traverse the Ulvenwald can tutor for your creature combo pieces as well.

If you're wanting to mae kthe deck more competitive then i would start by looking at the mana base and ramp package. Cards like Explosive Vegetation are too slow for a deck lie this - you want to get Rafiq down and swinging quickly. 4 CMC ramp is the opposite of this.

Mirari's Wake is in the same boat, it's too slow and adds too little. You don't have big X cost spells so it just adds an anthem. And there are cheaper cards that do this.

You should be running faster mana dorks like Avacyn's Pilgrim, (if you can afford it) Noble Hierarch, as well as cheaper ramp cards like Nature's Lore, Three Visits (again, if you can afford it) and even Farseek. All of these wil lhel pyou to play your commander faster, which is what you need to do in voltron.

Your mana base confuses me. You're running all three ABURs but no shocks and the only fetch effects you have are Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds. it's like you're avoiding running any lands that make you lose life. If you want the deck to be competitve then you need to add the shocks and fetches (e.g.e Windswept Heath). Also, comes into play tapped lands should be avoided if possible. Cathedral of War doesn't add enough to negate its downside.

On the matter of card advantage - you have too much that leverages cards playing other cards or connecting with combat damage. You need more outright card advantage. stuff like Mystic Remora is good, as are cards like Green Sun's Zenith and Chord of Calling (which is goodd since you have a bunch of creatures with triggered abilities only). Impulse is also good but a bit more of a cantrip (if you want to go down that road).

Run Eternal Witness. Just do it.
