Kin-Tree Warden Discussion

JWiley129 - I have Morph as a 1 across the board. If it has a relevant ability that gets added separately. Morph always gives some as being able to play this card as a 2/2 for 3 is an ability with merit in its own right. Icefeather Aven is 2/2 for 2, no penalty as the two colors are different in the cost, 1 for being able to morph at all and a 0 for the ability as it isn't worth much at 6 mana total for a bounce effect, and sometimes you don't get it.

JohnnyBaggins - As far as Monastery Swiftspear and Kin-Tree Warden both are extremely efficient creatures. Swiftspear sees its efficiency in the early game (Haste + Prowess), while Kin-Tree's is in the late game (Block anything w/o trample for 2). I understand that they aren't abilities that win you a game of limited, but they are very good at what they do for their cost and certainly don't hurt your deck.

I don't believe that MVT is a tool for what to "Pack 1 Pick 1" but more a way to see that cards have more value that just the VT would indicate. Also, as mentioned, a lot of the A score is subjective, and your own MVT would shift during a draft as you determine what direction you want to go.

Vortexflame on Please Help This Green/Black Sacrifice Deck

You have more than 60 cards. Get rid of all your enchantments. Also Sultai Flayer, Ancient Silverback, Corpse Blockade, Kin-Tree Warden, and Kheru Bloodsucker. None of these do that much in a sacrifice deck. Consider Ooze Garden, Servant of the Scale, Ogre Slumlord, Flesh Carver, Mitotic Slime, and Sadistic Glee.

iomega801 on Regenerating a sacrifice?

4 years ago

I was playing with friends, and using my sac deck. One of the creatures I was using was Kin-Tree Warden, which I sacrificed to buff my Nantuko Husk. I then regenerated Kin-Tree, but my friends said I couldn't. Just wondering if that's the case, or my friends just didn't want me getting a good combo

Ryjo on Abzan Alliance

If you consider Dromoka to be Abzan enough, I'd suggest looking into the Bolster mechanic. Echoes of the Kin Tree can be a good mana sink for later in the game and can provide more +1/+1 counters than High Sentinels of Arashin. Gleam of Authority makes a creature a flightless version of High Sentinels of Arashin but with the ability to attack and boost during the same turn. Scale Blessing might also be worth looking into as it gives a creature a +1/+1 counter then puts another counter on each creature you control with a counter on it.

I think you might want to remove Kin-Tree Warden, it doesn't generate counters, or provide buffs to creatures with counters. I'd say cutting 2 5CMC cards, like an Incremental Growth and the singleton Armament Corps, in addition to the Warden, and adding in 3 copies of Dromoka's Command will help lower your mana curve a bit. Also, the Command can still provide a +1/+1 counter, in addition to performing other functions, which gives you a bit of versatility. You may also want to remove a card or two from your 4CMC slot and increase the 2 drops you have, or add in an additional Dromoka's Command.

Your lands look pretty good. I would suggest upping Sandsteppe Citadel to 4, then run one each of Scoured Barrens, Jungle Hollow, and Blossoming Sands. If you're going to be running taplands, might as well max out on the most effective one at your disposal. I'd keep the basic lands where they're at, you seem to have a good amount for hitting your turn 1 and 2 drops.

This deck looks like it will be fun to play, and a pain to fight against.
