Greenwarden of Murasa Discussion

TheVectornaut on First red green

2 days ago

In my R/G ramp deck, I run a package with Arbor Elf, Voyaging Satyr, Magus of the Candelabra, Burning-Tree Emissary, Utopia Sprawl, Garruk Wildspeaker, Xenagos, the Reveler, Gruul Turf, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. While not super budget-friendly, I really think Nykthos is an invaluable addition to any ramp deck. I use the mana for Planar Portal into a single copy of Primal Surge, letting Cyclops of Eternal Fury, Siege Behemoth, and Pathbreaker Ibex finish the job, but the world is pretty much your oyster when you can produce dozens of mana every turn. I'd also recommend Fierce Empath as a means for finding your favorite fatties. I use him for 1 copy of Primeval Titan to find Nykthos or Kessig Wolf Run, 1 copy of Regal Force to restock my hand, and 1 copy of Greenwarden of Murasa if my portals get destroyed.

Leviath on Omnath, Locus of Roid Rage

Thanks for the suggestions! I actually really like the Ingot Chewer in combination with omnath being a 1 cost Lightning Bolt/Smelt. Taking a proper look at Ember Swallower, that would work pretty nicely in the deck too, and I think I have a Greenwarden of Murasa somewhere... Hull Breach is very good and deserves a spot. I really don't like Decimate as there need to be four different target types on the field in order to cast it (though I realize you can pick the same target twice if it contains two or more of the target types). I feel I have enough ramp in the deck without the need for Cultivate, Kodama's Reach or Wooded Foothills (unless I swapped out an Evolving Wilds or something).

I would suggest more ramp. Ideally ramp on creatures that sacrifice themselves, yeah? Diligent Farmhand, Dawntreader Elk. Or some fatties who can help ramp/fix early like Krosan Tusker, Shefet Monitor which can cycle to draw you a card, plus either get a land to hand or to the battlefield, all while giving you a bigger body in the grave ready for Meren to use the effect again from hand or straight to the battlefield. Nothing can compare to Sakura Tribe-Elder and Wood Elves, but these guys help you stay creature heavy, feed into synergies, and helps you get to your ~49 mana/ramp sources. I would say you could cut 1-2 basics if you add in diligent and dawntreader at least. I have you at 49.

I don't know how much you like Primal Growth. It's pretty efficient if you are sacrificing a creature a lot of the time and that's feeding into your synergy, and there's even a card like Viridian Emissary who needs to be sacrificed to be useful, but I personally don't run either of those cards just because I'm in Karador (and tutor up Meren) with only 6 basic lands total. Instead I run more self-mill and include the new Ramunap Excavator, with cards like Splendid Reclamation, and Far Wanderings which is always 3 mana for 3 basics. Sure there is more risk in self-mill (make your opponents graveyard hate better) but I find that's less common than not having a sac outlet (Viridian Emissary) and/or needing my only blocker to avoid being beat up on early (Primal Growth). That being said, I think those two can definitely work better for you than me, but I would really like to say how well Splendid Reclamation has done for me, often netting 5+ lands even if cast early (turn 4-6). I feed that engine by using more cards like Ash Barrens, Myriad Landscape, the fetchlands (proxies lel- I hate expensive lands), and unfortunately some G/W lands that you can't run, but also stuff like Gather the Pack, Commune with the Gods, Crop Sigil (This can net you back a land on it's own), Drown in Filth which is removal as well.

These effects can also be found on creatures Mindwrack Demon is a beater and delirium is easy to achieve. Splinterfright, Sewer Nemesis are big X/X beaters who enable themselves to get bigger, Grim Flayer filters your draws and stocks your yard. Of course the dredge spells, four of which I find good enough to run Golgari Grave-Troll, Golgari Thug, Stinkweed Imp, and Life from the Loam. For a bonus when you run this much grave interaction you can use this nifty old creature Keeper of the Dead, oh you'll also want ways to get cards back from your graveyard besides Eternal Witness (my main target often being Splendid Reclamation) I would recommend adding Den Protector, Hag Hedge-Mage, and Greenwarden of Murasa. I find these to be generally better than Magus of the Will unless you've already got 10+ mana.

From your Maybelist I would definitely recommend Fleshbag and Merciless Executioner. Maybe Ashnod's Altar although I find Altar of Dementia to be even better without any infinite mana combos. Grave Pact is of course a house.

Some other random cards I think are include worthy, mostly cards that remove opponents stuff: Caustic Caterpillar, Avatar of Woe, Deathrite Shaman, Reclamation Sage (how could you cut this? lol), Shadowborn Demon. Possibly Oversold Cemetery, Undertaker for more recursion. Hell's Caretaker, Doomed Necromancer, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Animate Dead, Necromancy, Phyrexian Delver for recursion to the battlefield. Fauna Shaman, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Rune-Scarred Demon, Evolutionary Leap, Survival of the Fittest, Jarad's Orders for tutors.

I have thoughts...

I see you're already running Greenwarden of Murasa and Eternal Witness, good; this gives you the perfect opportunity to run Defense of the Heart. This bad boy is straight up bonkers with Greenwarden and E-Witness.

Deathreap Ritual is strong draw condition in this sort of deck, keep in mind it says "each end step," so it counts opponents' turns too.

Dictate of Erebos is pretty oppressive in G/B, maybe don't run it if you have a sensitive playgroup.

You might have thought Bitterblossom was only for Modern, well you might have been WRONG! It sees play in Legacy too... And it's good here.

Bloodgift Demon is another Phyrexian Arena on a body, so now you can have one that's as pretty on the outside as it is on the inside.

Genesis is a no-brainer here, it's worth running more Forests just to proc this beauty.

Creeping Renaissance is a pretty slept on mass reanimation card, expect to hear a lot of "What!?"s and "I can't believe I've never seen that one!"s.

Keeping yourself alive is a breeze with Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper in play; it's some of the best life-gain in its colors.

Lotleth Troll is a great way to generate dredge without having to actually paying mana. And speaking of dredge...

Stinkweed Imp has Dredge 5. Let me repeat that: STINKWEED IMP HAS DREDGE 5! Golgari Grave-Troll even has Dredge 6! And hey, why not Golgari Thug?

And I know what you're thinking...
Holy molyHoly Moly!!

We did just get Liliana, Death's Majesty though, and if I'm being honest, she's a much better fit than Liliana, the Last Hope. She feeds your graveyard as her +1 instead of a -2 while making a token, and her reanimate ability brings it straight to the field instead of your hand.

And, in a little over a week, you can pick up a Ramunap Excavator because now we have another card that does that.

How about Deadeye Navigator? It has synergy with Acidic Slime, Archaeomancer, Avenger of Zendikar, Coiling Oracle, Eternal Witness, Greenwarden of Murasa, Mulldrifter, Mystic Snake, Reclamation Sage, Solemn Simulacrum, Terastodon, Torrential Gearhulk, Venser, Shaper Savant and Woodland Bellower. Oh, and if you want deadeye, you should include Tooth and Nail to get both deadeye and the creature you want to use :).

I recently built a Rashmi deck myself, you might find something you like there.. Rush Me! (Rashmi EDH).

Savageborn Hydra to manasink, Craterhoof Behemoth and Siege Behemoth for lethal.
Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip comes in as a creature. Greenwarden of Murasa and Eternal Witness for recursion.

If you get more ETB elves you can do Wren's Run Packmaster for a mana outlet. Examples: Elvish Harbinger, Farhaven Elf, Wood Elves, Reclamation Sage, Oracle of Mul Daya (I know you have a couple already)

Look into the LEVEL UP cards from a few years ago or Level up cards from recent Commander Releases for good mana sinks.

Bansato on Nylea Goddess of the Hunt

I think it was a good decision to change your commander from Rhonas the Indomitable to Nylea, God of the Hunt.I think you should try Eternal Witness, Regrowth and Greenwarden of Murasa. In my opinion green "must have" cards in the commander format!
