Haze of Pollen for aggro decks

arice332534 on The Approach gave me a Second Sunburn!

Rex_JB24 I have actually, that was why my Oketra's Last Mercy was in the sideboard but it rarely worked out for. I was almost tempted to splash green in this bad boy for Haze of Pollen and Nissa, Steward of Elements. It saddens me that there is no good white fog spells in Ixalan. I like your idea, but I'm also trying to plan for the Ixalan rotation. These are really helpful guys, anything else?

Hey there! This looks like a sweet Standard ramp deck! I have a few suggestions for you:

  • Naga Vitalist is a great piece of early ramp that can help you cast your late-game creatures (and Nissa).
  • Haze of Pollen can probably help you stay alive longer against some of the format's more aggressive decks, and can be cycled away if you don't need it.
  • Pull from Tomorrow gets better the more mana you have, and can really help you in the late game.
  • Commit may not look strong, but Memory can be critical at refilling your hand and deck, and has the added bonus of disrupting your opponent's graveyard shenanigans.
  • Censor is probably the best counterspell in Standard; and I would highly recommend running at least 2.
  • While maybe a little expensive $-wise, Nissa, Steward of Elements is probably significantly better than Nissa, Genesis Mage, and is good both in the early game and the late game.

If you're looking for cards to cut, I'd start with Majestic Myriarch (it's good in go-wide strategies, but not really any place else) and Lay Claim (more of a Limited card than anything else). In any case, have fun!

Get rid of Haze of Pollen. Replace it with 4 of something that will help you progress your game plan. Maybe Dark Confidant, although it's expensive and it's dangerous in a deck that runs Liliana, Death Wielder. If Confidant doesn't work, Phyrexian Arena is a usable substitute. Also, this deck needs more removal. Abrupt Decay and Fatal Push are your best options.

I think Safe Passage for sure. It's three mana, and you won't run out of two or one mana fogs. Howling Mine can replace a couple Harmonize, and you could take out one or two of Haze of Pollen. I personally would focus on the white rather than green more.

Luminarch Ascension is also a great win con.

Working on a similar themed deck. I would recommend something that lets you put the Honored Hydra in the graveyard and pay its embalm cost. Otherwise Haze of Pollen seems like a must for any slow green deck.

OK, here we go. I've got a lot of feedback for this deck.

First of all, it's REALLY fun to play.

I've always loved mucking around with

Be aware that this is quite "durdly". Make sure you play it at a reasonable pace: not so slow that you run out of time to complete a match, not so fast that your Opponent doesn't know what is going on.

You would run 20 lands in an EXTREMELY aggressive deck. This is not one of those decks.

I suggest you add 3x Attune with Aether to the mix which sort of acts like a land, colour fixes, and gives you extra

3x Aether Hub would also help this deck with colour fixing. Put them in and remove the Evolving Wilds.

In my opinion Nature's Way would be better than Haze of Pollen. Killing a key Creature will help to stall longer than preventing damage for just one turn.

I would like to see Appetite for the Unnatural in the Sideboard, because it is so versatile. It can get rid of Gearhulks, Liliana's Mastery, etc.

I like Supreme Will better than Metallic Rebuke. Same price for a less conditional card with two modes.

I would rather see Sage of Shaila's Claim than Scythe Leopard. With Evolving Wilds coming out the Leopard won't be as effective, and the Sage fits your theme better.

It also acts a little bit like Haze of Pollen in that you now have a chump blocker that you don't care about losing.

It works really well with Bristling Hydra

Aethersquall Ancient is so good that I would add another. I would take out one Thriving Turtle for it, as that card is a bit hit and miss.

I like the Fabrication Module very much in this deck, but the other modules are a bit meh. You don't want too many Artifacts. I would add a Fabrication Module and take the other ones out.

I would rather see a counter spell than Gift of Tusks. Much better to completely stop a Creature resolving than nerf it for one turn, or boost one of your Creatures. Again, the card is a bit too situational.

Here is a suggested upgrade:

3x Aether Theorist
3x Aethersquall Ancient
3x Bristling Hydra
4x Greenbelt Rampager
4x Longtusk Cub
3x Sage of Shaila's Claim
3x Thriving Turtle

3x Fabrication Module

2x Botanical Sanctum
3x Aether Hub
7x Forest
6x Island
2x Lumbering Falls

4x Blossoming Defense
1x Essence Scatter
2x Disallow OR Cancel
2x Nature's Way
3x Attune with Aether

This deck has a stronger purpose now - get as many as possible and use them to overwhelm the enemy.

I don't like Containment Membrane in the Sideboard. It doesn't tap the Creature, so if it's big enough they can just use it as a blocker.

Against a Control deck running Torrential Gearhulk it is next to useless.

SIDEBOARD

2x Cartouche of Strength
2x Disallow OR Cancel
3x Essence Scatter
2x Negate (brilliant against Planeswalkers)
2x Plummet
2x Supreme Will
2x Appetite for the Unnatural

You'll have to playtest any changes to see how they work.

If you update the deck tag me in these Comments and I'll take another look at it.

Sundering Growth against hard enchantment locks, which are faster and will beat your deck, Fog, Holy Day, Haze of Pollen, or Angel's Grace to survive for the lock, Chaplain's Blessing for the best heal against burn for survival, etc. The issue is that you have a very slow win condition.

--

I would suggest just to help, you fix up your mana, 24 is a good amount in three colors, but Seaside Citadel is a good cheap option, along with Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse for mana fixing, etc.
