Harvester Druid Discussion

Man oh man, where do I start. This limp dick of a deck is too busy destroying your opponents' mana rocks to actually play a creature before you realize "hey, maybe I should stop being such a retard and try to win the game". But by that time you're getting slammed in the face with, I don't know, an army of angels or something. Try removing a few dedicated artifact/enchant removal spells like Deconstruct, which as a card in this deck is similar to the unemployed in our economy.

You know, I thought that choosing good ramp spells in a green deck was a brain-dead activity, but somehow you managed to fuck that up too. I'd like to think that Harvester Druid is some kind of inside joke that I'm not aware of, but that hope was quickly dismissed when I remember who built this deck. You might have been able to notice that Explosive Vegetation is an almost strictly worse version of Skyshroud Claim if you could've read the card and used a little brain power. I don't know what Elvish Mystic is going to try to accomplish before the first board wipe, but I can guess that it'll be about as much lazav in literally any game.

Lastly, it looks like you're running a few cards that should've been aborted in Wizards RND before they made it to any packs, let alone any kind of actual game. Bow of Nylea is like a swiss army knife that only has attachments that include a flat spoon, a solar-powered flashlight, and a cardboard knife. Xenagos, the Reveler is a good card in any dedicated token deck. It provides mana, makes tokens, and has a decent ultimate if it gets there. Sadly, unless I'm having as much of an aneurysm as you did when you chose this card, this isn't a token deck. In fact, Hanweir Battlements belongs in this deck as much as lazav belongs in the command zone. I would tell you to swap out these cards as soon as possible, but that just might make the deck mediocre, and we can't have that now can we.

Well I think that's a decent start to eating this deck alive, if you have any other questions feel free to shove them up your ass.

Imperial Recruiter is crazy expensive, so that's one level I've never achieved. Walking Ballista is a wincon that I do need to pick up tho lol

What I'm thinking with cards like Harvester Druid and Naga Vitalist versus Manaweft Sliver and Gemhide Sliver; what happens if you don't have lands of all your colors? Just that once-in-a-while instance makes the slivers strictly better. They don't need other slivers to do their thing, so it's something to consider. I like the direction you've taken the deck so be sure to do what's fun for you!

Also I'm hoping you'll swing by my animar deck and give it an upvote!

Amazing, +1 from me

Shrieking Drake is the best card I can suggest for you. So much value when paired with animar! Ppl will run Imperial Recruiter to search for stuff like that

If you're running Harvester Druid; might as well be Manaweft Sliver or Gemhide Sliver?

I'm super jealous of that Walking Ballista; looks like you've put some effort into this

Definitely better than Harvester Druid for sure, but the reason that Werebear is a little better to me is because threshold is really easy to hit after you get rolling with the combo. His +3/+3 is actually pretty handy when you're going for a win with Triumph of the Hordes, hell it's even helped me out with Craterhoof Behemoth wins.

You forgot the best interaction: drawing extra cards with Sensei's Divining Top. Still, a 2 cmc creature that's not always easy to cast and often is just a Harvester Druid probably has to wait in line behind Chrome Mox, Elves of Deep Shadow, Llanowar Elves and the other 1cmc accelerators. Even Trinket Mage as a tutor for Sol Ring, Mana Vault or Sensei's Divining Top seems like a more reliable way to ramp.

I went through the rest of the cards in the shoebox and made the following tweaks. With the few cards I have, it looks like I can lead toward elf tribal. I should probably post this as a new deck because it's very much different.
