Hunting Triad Discussion

TempleOfAsmodeus on Quick Easy Q: Marwyn, the ...

2 months ago

If I have Marwyn, the Nurturer on the battlefield and cast Sylvan Offering with X=3 (or Hunting Triad), does Marwyn get a single +1/+1 counter, or 3?

HansRun I'm not sure. I've been considering Marwyn. It is kind of interesting with Ivy Lane Denizen and just playing elves. It might also work with meatyorologist's Hunting Triad if I run that. I like the idea behind it a lot as is synergizes with several of the stated goals.

Honestly, tho, none of the recent printings have piqued my interest, but maybe I'm missing something new? Any suggestions?

Firebird on Modern Elvish Swarm

Hi! I run an Elf deck, as well, and it's quite strong (managed to get a turn 4 245-damage win today), and it has gone through many iterations. So I have some experience with Elves. Here is that deck, if you want to check it out for inspiration.

First thing I would do is probably up your land count by at least two. I run 18, myself, with 20 mana dorks in the deck. There's a ton of mana generation but even then, 18 lands is pretty low. You only need one or two to pop off, but you want to have some kind of backup.

Second, I'd find room for Dwynen's Elite. After a lot of testing I actually just use it in place of Nettle Sentinel because it combos so much better with Heritage Druid and, now, Marwyn.

Collected Company is immensely powerful with all this mana, and I highly recommend finding room for at least a couple, if not four. Also, Lead the Stampede isn't flashy, but in such a creature-heavy deck, it's an extremely efficient way to refill your hand.

I love Nissa, but I'm not sure she's necessary for Elves. Life gain isn't used except for countering burn or the mirror, and there are easier ways to do that, I think. You definitely want a more reliable way to put out Ezuri, so CoCo and/or LTS are good for that. You have the Harbinger, too, but we want something a little more consistent. You might consider upping your count of Ezuri, for that matter.

I love the Immaculate Magistrate + Joraga Warcaller combo, too. Used it for a while. But in the end, it's slow and fairly easily stopped. Also, CoCo (which you will want to use) doesn't hit the Magistrate. Another reason CoCo is so good is because you can do it on your opponent's end step, throw out something like an Elvish Archdruid, and have it ready to go on your next turn.

Instead of or in addition to Elvish Promenade, maybe consider Hunting Triad. The nice part is that the reinforce ability doesn't count as casting so it can't be easily countered. You can either put out 3 tokens to power up Elvish Archdruid, or put the counters directly on Joraga Warcaller to pump up all your Elves.

These are just a few basic ideas to start with. Take a look at my deck for some more ideas, especially on the sideboard, and I'll post again with some more ideas soon.

Seems to me that Marwyn would be all about that elf-token life! Things like Hunting Triad and Sylvan Offering might be worthwhile to make her huge - the latter especially since she can provide a huge amount of mana for it.

If you're after more card draw, Collective Unconscious may just be a worse Shamanic Revelation but it's still very much worth it if you're doubling down on elf production. You might also appreciate more reliable and long-term card drawing, such as Staff of Nin, The Immortal Sun and/or Mind's Eye - things that your commander can hurry out but will still be worthwhile even if you're having trouble building up your board. Best of all, if you're able to afford it, Staff of Domination would be like a dream. As soon as Marwyn has five or more power, you get infinite life and can draw all the cards you want.

There's only 10 creatures that benefit fully from the cost reduction on Urza's Incubator, assuming you choose Elf. That's not even half of your creatures. I think you'd be better off with Herald's Horn.

Swap Fade into Antiquity for Nature's Claim or Krosan Grip.

Swap Scour from Existence for Beast Within.

Swap Wellwisher for Arbor Elf. Life gain isn't so good in EDH.

Swap Steely Resolve for Eladamri, Lord of Leaves.

Swap Heedless One for Argothian Elder.

Put in Maze of Ith to combo with Argothian Elder. Swap with Autumn's Veil or Hunting Triad.

Swap Wirewood Hivemaster for Fyndhorn Elves.

You might also want to consider putting in Green Sun's Zenith and Worldly Tutor to pick out the creatures you need.

Also, Concordant Crossroads to be able to attack right away once you've assembled your combo.

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and Viridian Joiner have tap effects similar to Marwyn's, so they are probably worth including.

Swap:

Stoneforge Masterwork for Coat of Arms. Mass pump is better than single pump

Honden of Night's Reach for Doubling Season If you get the money for it

Civic Wayfinder for Cultivate/Kodama's Reach You get more lands for the same price

Heart Warden for Yavimaya Elder Either is fine. Elder costs 1 more for 1 more card, but isn't an elf.

Murderous Cut/Eyeblight's Ending for Doom Blade/Murder/Hero's Downfall. The deck doesn't seems too focused on setting up a big graveyard.

Naturalize for Krosan Grip/Reclamation Sage Costs 1 more, but are both do more for the deck

Wren's Run Packmaster for Bow of Nylea Packmaster takes a lot of set up, but the bow fits the aggro of your deck better

Cut:

Hunting Triad feels like a flavor card, but 3 tokens/ 3 counters seems kind of lack luster

Elvish Piper Your curve is peeking around 2-3 with very little high cmc creatures. Great card, but you wont benefit much from it. It's more for big green beatdown, not so much swarm

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds Another good card that works better in a big creature deck. You're making a bunch of little 1/1s. I can't see you really benefiting from her draw effect or her tap ability that much.

Elvish Visionary Cantrips are fine (play a card, draw a card), but if you are having a hard time cutting cards, you could do without.

Elvish Vanguard Needs a lot of set up and is very fragile with no protection or battle tricks

Elfhame Druid I didn't see a lot of kicker cards, and it looks like you have plenty of ramp already

Protean Hulk Sounds crazy, but if you don't have a combo you can search out with his LTB, I'm not sure how much uselful it will be.

Add

Board wipes. Black has crazy good board wipes like Toxic Deluge and Damnation

Mass Discard. A lot of your discards are single target, you might want to add some more Multi target (if there are any more).

Win conditions. The most generic win con for token decks is a surprise mass buff like Craterhoof Behemoth, add some more. Tribal Forcemage fits your flavor, Overrun and (I'm gonna regret this) Triumph of the Hordes can be just as deadly as Craterhoof. Beastmaster Ascension takes a bit of set up, but in a token deck its pretty easy to activate.

Draw, always more draw. Shamanic Revelation, Regal Force, Fecundity, Slate of Ancestry, Collective Unconscious. You can pick an choose which ones fit

There you go. Your 150 card edh deck is complete! xD
