Karametra's Acolyte Discussion
1 day ago
Hey, one advantage that this Nylea has as Commander is she's mana sink to get creatures into your hand because if you don't reveal a creature you can put that card into graveyard and look again. With infinite green mana you can find and cast all the creatures in your deck or just find a specific one, cast it and repeat on your turn. With Yeva, Nature's Herald you can cast creatures at instant speed and you can activate Nylea at instant speed.
This interaction is a combo to make infinite green mana. There needs to be minimum four green devotion for Karametra's Acolyte. Mystery Booster version of Umbral Mantle is $5 at TCGPlayer. Sword of the Paruns is slower than Mantle, because have to pay mana to equip it, but that's why it's less than $2. As long as Acolyte is equipped and can tap then you can make infinite green mana at instant speed which means you can do the combo on your last opponent's turn.
- Assemble the infinite mana combo.
- Using infinite mana activate Nylea until you get Yeva, Nature's Herald into your hand and end your turn.
- On last opponent's turn make infinite mana combo again.
- Flash in Yeva then activate Nylea to find and put all creatures into your hand.
- Cast all your creatures since they have flash from Yeva.
- On your next turn attack with all your creatures and Nylea.
Nylea puts cards that aren't creatures into your graveyard and you can advantage of this with green recursion. With infinite green mana Skullwinder + Temur Sabertooth can recur all cards in your graveyard that Nylea put there. Eternal Witness is a better Skullwinder, but more expensive price. Sabertooth can also give you infinite ETB triggers of a creature such as Acidic Slime to destroy all your opponents lands which can be game winning.
If you're interested in these suggestions I offer more advice to make cuts.
Good luck with your deck.

Liking the list! Trying to build a cEDH deck of Emiel since his first ability is such a great infinite mana dump. Might recommend running an Umbral Mantle combo with Priest of Titania out (with 4+ other elves on the field) or Karametra's Acolyte with ample devotion. Basically any dork that taps for 4+ mana plus the mantle is infinite mana, bounce the Acidic Slime as much as I want to destroy all their artifacts, enchantments, and lands!Or Infinite Tokens with Armada Wurm or Thragtusk! The possibilities! Also, great include on the Incubation Druid, didn't realize that interaction at first.

Here's a couple of my classic mono green stompy suggestions
WHAT THE GUY ABOVE ME SAID
Llanowar Tribe (combos with umbral mantle for huge llanowar tribe but not infinite mana)
in a deck like this it also may be worth it to invest in some protection for selvala, as well as getting haste on her to use that ability ASAP

SynergyBuild: Correct. Which is why things like The Great Henge and Guardian Project are being looked at. Also on the radar are Joraga Treespeaker and Elvish Archdruid in place of Karametra's Acolyte and Caustic Caterpillar. The deck is slowly morphing into a Faux Farm, FlashHulk, and IsoRev hybrid where we're trying to assemble a "2 card combo" with Ashaya, Soul of the Wild and one of the rangers (Quirion Ranger/Scryb Ranger) taking advantage of literally any dork under the right circumstance; a 2 mana producing one being the ideal choice, hence the Treespeaker consideration.
- Rush a dork, draw, and/or stax
- Cast Yeva, before our turn
- assemble 2 card combo for 6/7 mana, wait on the prowl to shotgun blast the table.
- NEVER shoot for win, just build while keeping options to win open once 6/7 is reached.
- 4 creatures means free Allosaurus Shepherd with Chord of Calling or one mana with Summoner's Pact
- Bonus points if you can create THE BUBBLE: Casting Veil of Summer into the obvious counter, storm off some more into Allosaurus Shepherd.
We have our pretection, we just need to look for the opening and streamline. Weigh in how easily it is to go infinite with Ashaya and NEED a mana sink or need a Glimpse effect.

Needs more infinite mana generators; Slimefoot with uninterrupted infinite mana and a sac outlet wins on their own. I might recommend running an Umbral Mantle with your Priest of Titania, or an Elvish Archdruid or Karametra's Acolyte. Magus of the Coffers if you're running the Urborg/Coffers interaction, which ya oughta. With infinite mana, make a universe of funguys then sac 'em and Slimefoot hypermurders your opponents with his vengeful rage.

Combos exist. Not a problem. Sure she's a bit of a bigger threat since she's the Commander and thus able to get back out easily, however this is theoretically true for any deck that might run some sort of graveyard synergy.
I really just don't think it'll be an issue. And if it is, so be it. Let someone have their giant turn with 10,000 mana. We all deserve to have fun and it's just a game. Gg, shuffle up and let's go again.

SynergyBuild: it's definitely not Cloudstone Curio and it's not what's up to get cut for Kogla. However, Kogla, the Titan Ape is a way better contingency plan with Hyrax Tower Scout, which would be the perfect candidate for the slot in just by being tutorable. The issue is finding a slot for the Ape himself. My recent spitball was Regal Force because:
One less; lowers curve (I know I'm reaching but I want this APE)
Eldritch can now search anything off of a Yeva sac
Selvala is LOADS stronger with it. Regal having only 5 power made domination lines impossible, so gog/bellower always.
Tutorable duplicant that deals with problem creatures I can't deal with if I don't draw Beast Within instant speed, or have Mouth of Ronom, or Ulvenwald Tracker w/o ss. Can be snuck out with Chord of Calling too :D
More artifact/enchantment removal!
We have Hyrax Tower Scout and Eternal Witness, yes (which could get us an outlet). However, Karametra's Acolyte with Thousand-Year Elixir on the field can be bounced as well for infinite, niche I know, but mentionable. (Leave me alone, I know I'm reaching)
Con: I lose an average of 4-6 card draws for 7 Mana..... Why does this rip my heart to shreds? Help me please!!
At this point I'm gonna take out a land... Jk, idk maybe. Help. I need spoilers to stop thinking about the Kogla+Hyrax package.
precociousapprentice: Love it!!! I agree, the core of the deck is basically the same, I just love seeing the what people chose in place of other things to see different flavors. The Emerald Medallion is great! You don't have to remove it, as it doesn't hurt it :).

As much as I love kogla, it's no Cloudstone Curio. It's a big removal spell that hits hard and blows up annoying threats like Damping Spheres against our Gaea's Cradle and storm turns or a Cursed Totem shutting down our creatures.
It can combo with Hyrax Tower Scout, yes, but combos with no other card in the deck, it can't GOG or even properly survive many wipes and save your key pieces, because we run like only Karametra's Acolyte, Destiny Spinner, and a few other humans.
It's also twice the CMC, and so I'd go for curio for just comboing. If it's an anti-stax piece you want though, Kogla is a bomb.
