Karametra's Acolyte Discussion

Karametra's Acolyte would do really well in this. And Wood Elves is a better Farhaven Elf, since your forests will come into play untapped. I'll often run both if I want to keep my creature count high.

Atuva, I would love to get Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to augment Karametra's Acolyte. The exponential growth potential is mystifying.

Elvish Harbinger is used as a tutor to get more Arbor Elf's. Also it allows me to diversify my mana sources. I play Elvish Harbinger, Karametra's Acolyte, and Chromatic Lantern so that my opponents cant just destroy my land/enchants and completely screw me over. I also like to have Kodama's Reach as a way of cycling more of the lands out of the deck, so you are more likely to draw something useful. Voyaging Satyr is a good card, but I don't use it because I would have to swap out something else or go above 60 cards. Same goes for Fertile Ground. Thanks for the feed back.

Because you are already running Karametra's Acolyte you could run Umbral Mantle to equip to her for infinite green mana. I run it in my omnath deck. More mana is needed

PookandPie on Unconventional Tokens

Tigereye Cameo can basically become Talisman of Unity, straight up, and be an upgrade. Yeah, you'd have to pay some life to use it but it's not like that's a big deal to Trostani, and ramping one turn earlier is kind of a big deal for her.

I'm not really big on Soul Foundry. Getting 2 for 1'd when your opponents destroy it kind of sucks because cards are one of the most valuable resources in the game. Spending some life, on the other hand, doesn't seem like such a big deal, so paying 20+ into Phyrexian Processor wouldn't be so painful even if it were to be destroyed. If you have 8 mana total, you can gain the life back immediately with Trostani on the battlefield even if the Processor were to be destroyed, so I find it to be a far safer investment than exiling one of your 19 creature cards. Even if the tokens are black, the card can be used in the deck, so I think that would be a beneficial upgrade even if you wouldn't be able to abuse ETBs as 20/20 or 40/40 tokens for 4 mana that can be populated is stupidly threatening. Besides, you already have Mimic Vat and Blade of Selves for abusing ETBs.

Is Sword of the Paruns just to let you abuse Trostani's activated ability? 6 mana seems like an awfully steep investment but the deck does appear to ramp fairly well once the game hits turn 7-8. Or is it for the damage/toughness bonus? I honestly think Paruns is only worth the slot if you have a way to properly abuse it (like Selvala, Heart of the Wilds with a creature with power 4+ on field, which would give infinite mana and could then produce infinite tokens and life via Trostani, or even Karametra's Acolyte, etc.), as while it can give a needed P/T boost, Cathars' Crusade does that far better in a snowballing token deck, and Eldrazi Monument does it far more safely (indestructible is a very good ability to have and makes your board quite scary), and if you need to untap things, Umbral Mantle is far easier to abuse than Sword of the Paruns, but you don't really have the methods to abuse the untap cards right now outside of Trostani's ability and Stoneforge Mystic's. I don't really find those being so backbreaking that you'd seek out Sword of the Paruns in any game over, say, Seedborn Muse or Blade of Selves to abuse the tokens as these other cards just do that better, in my opinion, and when it comes to buffing power or toughness, Cathar's Crusade and Eldrazi Monument just do that better, in my opinion.

Anyway, to summarize:

I would drop tigereye Cameo for Talisman of Unity, replace Soul Foundry with Phyrexian Processor, and drop Sword of the Paruns for either Cathars' Crusade or Eldrazi Monument (or add more things you can abuse with Sword of the Paruns).

Overall though, this deck is cute. I love playing against Trostani decks because, even if they may be a bit slow, if they can establish opponents will lose to cards they never thought they could lol.

goldlion on Ghalta - Big tramply idiots

Litdaze - I was thinking the same thing - but Dungrove Elder for Coiling Woodworm is far more expensive. The aim of this is to stay below a certain budget and that would tip it over. There's many cards that are better options than cards in here, it's just the element of $$ that decides it.

I'll definitely be building off this! I've got a mono-green that uses Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Voyaging Satyr and Copperhorn Scout for some crazy mana ramp. This is in combo with some other great mana-dorking including Karametra's Acolyte, then Rishkar, Peema Renegade with Wild Onslaught and Strength of the Pack to make sure all my creatures could tap for mana. I get to spend big for each main phase as copperhorn untaps everyone.

I leverage the +1/+1 counters with many creatures that give abilities to the rest, Armorcraft Judge builds off of this for card draw. For that I also have Regal Force, Mouth // Feed and Shamanic Revelation. Things grow very quickly.

I use Setessan Tactics is a great green "board wipe" with all the growing creatures I have out This is especially great if you have ways to untap your creatures again after with the extra +1/+1 they each get from this to either attack, or fight again... maybe a Vitalize and/or a Mobilize, though this could be a waste of card slots in commander format?

Watcher in the Web is the most amazing chump blocker to get you a turn or two without taking direct damage. I find Grunn, the Lonely King to be fun :). Both are cheap $.

Looking forward to pulling that deck apart to build with my Ghalta!. I'll put my Bow of Nylea in for extra good times.... trample and death touch... mmmmmm... Maybe a Wasteland Viper as well for some sneakiness.

Thanks for the inspiration. I love the show by the way! I listen while I wash windows all the time. Keep 'em coming.

And if you're looking to nail down Devotion, you should run a playset of Steel Leaf Champion, Leatherback Baloth, and Karametra's Acolyte.

That, combined with your defenders and Craterhoof Behemoth is a sure-fire way to break through the game.

To destroy the boardstate with Hoof, you can also do things like Hydra Broodmaster and immediately pay into his ability to get a ton of massive tokens, or even Gelatinous Genesis to outright make tokens out the ass.

I have a MG stompy deck that does exactly this and it explodes with tremendous force. You just need to be quick on the draw to ensure you can keep it going. Last thing you want is to cast your hand and be top-decking the rest of the game.

Harmonize is great for this in green, as is Garruk, Primal Hunter where you -3 him immediately and draw stupid amounts of cards. Just be sure if you're using Garruk to cast him first with minimal amounts of mana (Tapping basic forests, for example) and than tap for devotion to get his added in before you kill him off to draw. No sense letting it go to waste.
