Krosan Tusker Discussion

Talltail, sadly since Kev Walker didn’t draw any nonbasics, I can’t play anything but basics. The landcycling ability of Krosan Tusker is the only fixing that I have access to.

I found that Krosan Tusker doesn't actually do anything for if you run into it after turn 5 or 6 so I recommend replacing it with Deadeye Navigator. If it's bound to Muldrotha, the Gravetide, you can have her evade pesky removal and board wipes while also making a second Muldrotha for the turn. Which means you can play even more permanents of each type from your graveyard, giving you more chances to combo out and just make generally nutty plays.

Another great weird tribal. Awesome work. If you need a little more value, Krosan Tusker be worth trying.

Draw:

I think these for sure. A lot of the green draw is creature/land based and that unfortunately prevents us from drawing instants/auras to buff Claws. So maybe auras that replace themselves like Angelic Gift would shore that up.

More ramp trade outs: took out the sorcery speed ramp cards to add Absorb Vis, Krosan Tusker, and Shefet Monitor, with Abandoned Sarcophagus for added benefit

Thank you for your suggestions. Vernal Bloom is a must. Will go in.

I was thinking of adding Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, I just don't know if it's enough impact, but I'll definitely try it out if I find room.

Krosan Tusker and Sylvan Ranger seem kind of weak to warrant an inclusion.

Rude Awakening was another card I was thinking of adding. Definitely must go in.

Garruk Wildspeaker is interesting, but I like Kamahl, Fist of Krosa a lot more. You get the overrun effect and deter boardwipes for just 2 more mana.

Green Sun's Zenith is very good, will add once I find room

Rishkar's Expertise I thought about for a while, I put in Garruk Primal Hunter for a Soul's Magesty type of effect, but Rishkars does seem a lot better. Will add.

Shamanic Revelation is more for a token deck I feel. This deck doesn't go wide. The only time I can see it's use is with Kamahl.

Natural Order is pretty good. I feel like I need more green creatures to get use out of it. That's why I want to add Terastodon or some other big green dude which can be tutored with Natural Order or Green Sun's Zenith.

Song of the Dryads and Beast Within are great, I will add them once I find room.

Regarding the cuts....

Garruk, Primal Hunter for Rishkar's Expertise. Very similar effect to his -3.

From Beyond for Vernal Bloom. Vernal bloom is much more impactful.

Boundless Realms is my FAVORITE CARD of the deck and helps you ramp and thin your deck. Will always be kept.

Seer's Sundial for Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip. Helps me get a forest to the hand and can eventually flip to do more work. Test inclusion

Genesis Hydra for Terastodon. The hydra is nice but I have had some bad experiences during the playtest.

Woodland Bellower for Rude Awakening. Bellower has been underperforming with it's limited creature tutoring.

Genesis Wave is WAY TOO GOOD to be cut. Most of the deck is permanents and this card does SERIOUS work.

Comicaz on Azusa, Lost but Woke

Hello, as an Azusa player myself here are some recommendations...

First and foremost I'd play a lot more basic Forests and add Vernal Bloom.

Since you're already playing Exploration, Ramunap Excavator , and such, I'd also play Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Krosan Tusker, and Sylvan Ranger to keep the lands flowing in your hand and avoid having 1 card in hand turn 3 scenarios.

Rude Awakening can be a finisher and when it's not it allows explosive turns with all the mana doublers

Speaking of mana doublers often times Garruk Wildspeaker can be played for free with his +1 ability and allows for an Overrun-type effect the next turn he comes into play, which can be a win con

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is also great in keeping boardwipes in check, or finishing games.

Green Sun's Zenith is just my favorite creature tutor in green

Rishkar's Expertise because the value of this card is huge.

Shamanic Revelation can be quite good in some cases.

Natural Order, i would play that card. It's too good to pass.

And here are some of the best spot removal in green : Krosan Grip, Song of the Dryads, Beast Within.

As for the cuts, my personal choices would be Garruk, Primal Hunter, From Beyond, Boundless Realms, Seer's Sundial, and i would choose between the genesis cards and some of the eldrazi that requires casting. They do not synergize well and my choice would be to cut Genesis Hydra and Genesis Wave.

Hope this helps, all of these recommendations comes from my playtesting, but is still personal since my playgroup is probably different from yours.

Have fun
