Kalonian Twingrove Discussion

Ill start by saying that Thicket Elemental is not Modern legal if you are looking to play this deck in a Modern setting.
The biggest problem with a deck like this is consistency. You might find yourself playing through games and think, "Oh man if only I had drawn that one card...." To try and avoid this you need to condense your list so that you have mostly 3-4 copies of cards you're playing. This will increase your chances of drawing these cards in matches. If you have 4 Elvish Visionarys in your deck instead of 2, you will natural draw them more frequently.
Being mono green means you can play some pretty powerful cards that other decks don't get to play, you should take advantage of that! Cards like Leatherback Baloth are very difficult to cast in decks that have multiple colors. In yours though, it's all too easy. Other cards that like being in mono green decks are Garruk's Companion, Kalonian Tusker, Aspect of Hydra, Dungrove Elder, Kalonian Twingrove etc...
A sample list could look something like this:
Remember we want multiples of 3 to 4 to increase our consistency and want to make sure we have a good curve.
Now this didn't take much thought so it's not a refined, or perhaps even good, list but shows that you can still have small numbers of certain cards, especially if they are legendary, but mostly want mulitples of 3-4 and a good curve. As our curve climbs we have less and less cards (11 2CMC cards and 3 5CMC cards), this should keep our hand from being clunky and full of uncastables. Anyway, I wont say what cards you should cut and which you should add more of, I think a bit of that has to do with what you already have. I hope this helps!

If you're abusing displacer desolation twin isn't good because it is a cast trigger, not an etb. There are cards that copy themselves as etb triggers, such as Kalonian Twingrove. Also you might like Wall of Omens to draw you extra cards. I think a card that puts a land onto the battlefield would be more efficient than gatecreeper too. I know there are a lot of them, though I don't know names off the top of my head

If I had 5 forests and 3 enemy players, that gives me +120 health for playing it and attacking the turn after.
@Winterblast Well it is supposed to be more for fun, but the people I play against are normally in it for the win, so I want it to be fun but can still hold it's own.
@Flagellum Very cool ideas indeed, I just don't think they would be right for this deck :P

Alright, understandable. The way I look at any deck is I give myself a set number of cards for each type or what each card offers. So since you want Treefolk/fatty bootied plants, I'd go with... 25 "theme" cards. 35 lands is my go to which would put you at 60 cards with the rest being support/fill. Of those remaining 40 I'd go, 5 wipes 5 spot removal, 10 draw, 10 ramp, and 10 general support. Of course you can tweak those numbers however, but it's good to have a basis. Once you start doing that you might realize you're going total overkill on one category and swapping cards around isn't as hard as it was (sometimes it is harder though lol).
All that said, a rough list I'd go with is something like this (again this is your deck and by all means take this with a grain of salt and/or ignore it if you see fit):
- Doran, the Siege Tower
- Black Poplar Shaman
- Bosk Banneret
- Great Oak Guardian
- Heartwood Storyteller
- Indomitable Ancients
- Kalonian Twingrove
- Leaf-Crowned Elder
- Magnigoth Treefolk
- Oakgnarl Warrior
- Orchard Warden
- Reach of Branches
- Sapling of Colfenor
- Seedguide Ash
- Thorntooth Witch
- Timber Protector
- Tree of Perdition
- Tree of Redemption
- Treefolk Harbinger
- Ulvenwald Observer
- Unstoppable Ash
- Verdeloth the Ancient
- Woodfall Primus
Regardless of what you do with any/all of that, good luck and hope you enjoy playing your deck!

There are decent ideas and I'm happy you decided to make your first deck a Treefolk brew. There are however quite alot to work on here even if it's meant just for casual games. I don't know if you've ever looked into any deck building guides, but you mana curve is really important to be in line with your lands and ramp. Now your curve is super dependant on LUCK, which is not great. Unless you have consistent ways to cheat out your excessive amounts of 6 drops, you shouldn't have that many or they will clog your hand. I'll list a few semi-budget changes that will help.
Go up to full playset on Treefolk Harbinger, cause it tutors up any creature you need from your deck and that allows you to go down on the quantity of big threats.
Emerald Medallion is nice on mono color, but the heavyness really calls for more Bosk Bannerets or Medallions. Medallion is better when it's in your opening hand, since it drops topdecked Bosk to a 1-drop, but Bosk is tutorable with Harbinger (Might not matter which you run more of, so go with your gut.)
These couple swaps helps with consistency:
You don't need full playsets of any big drops if you go with 4 Harbingers.
All the greatest treefolks are ridiculously expensive, but if you ever want to invest little by little and keep your Tribal/Zoo theme, I suggest looking into my primer here Treefolkdancing my way to competitive scene!.

Yea, I think some sort of ramp could fit a Treefolk deck nicely.
I've been tinkering around with a couple different Treefolk builds and cards like Explosive Vegetation, Nissa's Pilgrimage, and Harrow play well with Dungrove Elder, Dauntless Dourbark, and even the addition of Battlewand Oak. A deck with lots of ramp also seems to want higher-CMC Treefolk as well like Ghoultree, Woodfall Primus, Oakgnarl Warrior, and Kalonian Twingrove. I would love to put something like that together but I worry that we may run into problems like being too slow against a lot of the typical Modern decks or being stuck with too many high-cost spells in hand during the start of the game.
What do you think?

So i24 I've actually playtested this deck with both Kalonian Twingrove and Leaf-Crowned Elder. Kalonian Twingrove was too slow when I had it in the deck and Leaf-Crowned Elder was too inconsistent. I will say that it felt great to get a hit with it though.
