Joraga Treespeaker Discussion
1 month ago
Body Snatcher is a line into protean hulk combo that it seems not many people realize (And it's one that lets you protect your combo). Joraga Treespeaker and Priest of Titania are both no-tempo-loss type mana dorks that work well when the board is locked, especially with things like Contamination or Nether Void out, and even greater if Survival of the Fittest is out, this usually means I win, both of those were chosen over Mana Vault on purpose, especially since I may have to get a null rod out depending on how the game goes. Why Victimize? I run Necromancy instead, which can be cast during upkeep as instant to win the game. Yisan, the Wanderer Bard another tutor. Regrowth maybe something i will add. Abrupt Decay is worthless in this deck, stax is better.
Show me how to do that without the snatcher just using the delver if you have no sac outlet out?
Also, Sylvan Library > top. And I run Arena AND bob. Drawing cards seems to me like it's better than just looking at them.
But ok. I guess we'll just differ in opinions.

Body Snatcher, Joraga Treespeaker, not sure about Mindslicer (could go either way), Priest of Titania, and i dont realy agree with Yisan, Wanderer Bard in either list. I already mentioned one card you need, Mana Vault. where is your top? Victimize? Regrowth? Abrupt Decay?

so this ended up a way longer list than i expected. anyway if i were building trostani i'd probably include these but commander decks are largly personal and often just whatever cards are easily available, so use whatever you think would work.
Growing Rites of Itlimoc ; crazy mana acceleration when its transformed.
Evolutionary Leap; trade in your tokens for other stuff.
Mitotic Slime; a lot of bodies.
Verdant Force; makes a lot of tokens if left alone for even one round of turns.
Twilight Drover; unsure about this in trostani, its been good in my ghave deck and flyers are useful.
Hydra Broodmaster; hella big army.
Terastodon; a big boy that blows up some stuff, you can even blow up your lands to make creatures in a pinch.
Mentor of the Meek; some card draw.
Rhox Faithmender; double life.
Aetherflux Reservoir; one way to kill your opponents with your high life total.
Eldrazi Monument; should be easy enough to sac one token per turn to keep.
Overrun; another overwhelming stampede.
again, i'm not saying run exactly these cards, but hopefully some of them look useful to you.

Interesting idea here, but I would perhaps remove the Pathrazer of Ulamog , Artisan of Kozilek, and some of the high mana creatures, since they don't really have any good purpose for this deck with their high mana cost... Not sure if you get to play them that often, and also you have few/alot cards that get use from the amount of cards/creatures in ur graveyard, So I would probably add more low mana green creatures with "tap for mana" abilities for example Avacyn's Pilgrim, Elvish Mystic there are ALOT elf 1mana cards with "tap for mana". If you build this deck more around Elves, then Priest of Titania / Joraga Treespeaker would be smart, which would also make u get those higher mana creatures on table and faster. Also Cradle of Vitality would be handy with the "gain life" cards you have, for example the Goldenglow Moth, theres a card which is kinda similiar to it --> Pride Guardian and a fun card to throw on it, After it/ or some of your creature blocks an high stat attacker... is to throw this Righteousness or Smite or some cards that make it undestroyable, I noticed that you probably want to keep this as Budget'ish deck so I suggested few cheap cards. Also would probably remove Oran-Rief Survivalist since you only have those 2 as "Ally". I would focus on building around something you have alot, for example those "gain life" cards, getting more cards that give alot value from gaining life. Since you're playing only against Black/White flying deck/or a blue mill deck, I would build this deck to counter those better, think on what card types ur weak against to, and/or try to counter those with something, Sorry for bad english,( oh and change the deck format to casual, since you dont have Standard legal cards) I hope I could help somehow :D, lemme know if you got anything more to ask about! Otherwise GL with the deck! And wreck dat guys decks

@ThallionDarkshine: thanks for the feedback! I'm trying to optimize the deck to perform with either Rhys and Selvala at the helm, and an untap theme suits both of them.
I didn't realize Gavony Township was about $5. That wouldn't be a bad plan.
I have a Joraga Treespeaker somewhere. In fact, I think it was in the first iteration of the deck, way back when it was mono-green with Yeva, Nature's Herald at the helm. Anyway, I think the deck would really appreciate the ramp.
As far as Uncage the Menagerie, I don't usually turn down a tutor, especially here.
I'll hold off on the bell ringer for now. Thanks again for the feedback!

Sweet deck! I really like the whole untap theme you have going on.
Gavony Township is a great utility land to help buff up your team, and once you get going you should easily have the mana to do other stuff on your turn and activate township. Joraga Treespeaker is a great way to make all your elves generate mana, getting more mileage out of your untap effects.
Return to Dust and Sylvan Reclamation are two pieces of artifact/enchantment removal that I greatly prefer to Unravel the Aether. While they're much more expensive, I feel that the power of them, and the utility on reclamation, outweighs the increased cost.
Finally, I feel like Uncage the Menagerie would do neat things in this deck, especially with a haste enabler on the board. You could get more mana generation and some utility creature to increase the power of untapping your board. To go with this, you could add some creature-based untap effects in Village Bell-Ringer and maybe Great Oak Guardian, though the guardian is pretty mediocre.

studajew, thanks so much for the suggestions! I think you're right, Joraga Treespeaker is probably better than Powerstone, but it's close. I'll do some testing to make sure. Momentous Fall has actually done a ton of work for me in the past, and I'd rather keep it in. High Market and Miren, the Moaning Well are also good lands that I'll slot in.
