Harvest Season Discussion
5 days ago
Thank you for the feedback I really appreciate it.
Overrun is a good card that I had not considered and I only used Zendikar's Roil because it helped fill my 5 cmc spot and it works well with my plans of getting lands out. But I agree it is too slow, in fact I think that Overwhelming Stampede might be better and will trade it in.
I am using Harvest Season because I thought it was a cool new card and I am still on the fence on whether it is good in this deck or not. I will playtest more and see if I just need to trade it out for Cultivate and if I end up doing that I would like to find a spot for Explore so I could play the second land and it just looks like it would work well in this deck.
My meta is pretty slow and a little less aggro so I am slightly comfortable with the amount of mana dorks I have (for now).
Doing more playtesting but so far:
+1 Arbor Elf

Drop Naturalize, you've got enough artifact/enchantment hate. Prey Upon is meh, Selesnya Charm is much better. Avacyn's Pilgrim and Sakura-Tribe Elder are much better than Elvish Mystic or Llanowar Elves. Heliod, God of the Sun, Tolsimir Wolfblood, Woolly Spider, and Qasali Ambusher are meh. Wayfaring Temple is meh too, I personally like Scion of Vitu-Ghazi better. Darien, King of Kjeldor is a staple, you need board wipes so like Hour of Reckoning, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Ezuri's Predation are good choices. Phyrexian Processor and Mimic Vat are awesome. Shamanic Revelation, Harvest Season, Angelic Accord, and Thunderfoot Baloth

I can second the argument for splashing white - The Regal Caracal is worth it alone.

Wow, thank you so, I love the utility that Collective Effort provides for tapping creatures, and Westvale Abbey for only saccing 5 (which is nothing if a couple Anointed Procession are on the field), so those are both definite adds. And I love your Harvest Season plan, that would be amazing as well. I'm just worried about about much the deck can afford to lose to include all of these. I guess I will be dropping the number of Anointed Procession and Second Harvest, but those are what makes the token engine go. 2 Anointed Procession on the field gives me 12 servos for a Sram's Expertise and on the next turn they could be 24 with a single Second Harvest, and 48 if I happen to have 2 of them. Then give them all +1/+1 with Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, or Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, or Collective Effort

So I've been thinking of a deck like this that uses Rites and the Throne- so very nice that you've already starting building it. Very cool.
I think that right off the bat the deck needs 3 or 4 rites. It seems to me it's a card that is needed to make the deck go. If there's no other way to tap the creatures, it's not likely that they survive combat... And you want tapped creatures alive at the end of the turn.
Some of the ideas I had involved using Collective Effort. It's additional cost is to tap creatures. That seems pretty good- all your creatures get +1 counters, you destroy a big creature, and maybe even destroy an enchantment? Also, this card is really good when combined with Sram's Expertise since the expertise gives you 3 creatures, which you then use to pay the alternate costs.
I was also thinking about Harvest Season for a deck like this. I'm not sure how much ramp it will supply since it needs tapped creatures to work, but it can really push you over the top with mana in the middle turns. 4 mana and 3 creatures already on the board and then cast the Expertise into Collective Effort for all 3 effects and then tap the first 3 creatures for the Harvest and you're pulling out 4 or 5 land. Late game you could have a serious number of tokens on the board and pull out.... well, gee, all your land? That way every card you draw is a spell and you can activate Oketra a ton of times.
Granted, it is a situational card, but this deck seems to be creating those situations regularly.
You might also consider running Blessed Alliance since it can uptap creatures as surprise blockers, or just make them sac an attacking dude.
I would also stick a couple Westvale Abbey in there. With that many tokens, I'm sure he's an easy flip.
As far as flyers, you could play Declaration in Stone. That doesn't care if a creature is flying or not. Poof! It's gone.
These are just some ideas, I hope they help.

Personally, In my playtesting, Harvest Season isn't very efficient in the deck
