Lifeforce Discussion

ItsVolcanicFox on Nissa, Vastwood Seer/Eldrazi

2 weeks ago

Hi guys, thanks for taking the time to look at the deck and even make suggestions.

I have considered Azusa, Lost but Seeking but in my meta, board wipes are abundant. That's why i favor Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip over other green commanders because of her +1 to help get me back in the game. (and deck-thinning whenever i re-cast her but people always laugh at that percentage)

Mox Diamond is a tough one, It is a great card but the -1 land for Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip makes me feel bad. I do have Ramunap Excavator but i tend to use him for emergencies to get my Eye of Ugin back in case it gets destroyed. Carpet of Flowers might have a place in this deck and my meta.

Ritual of Subdual and other stax pieces I tend to shy away from because of the immediate hate it generates. Granted a lot of people already hate me because they all know I play Eldrazi, so I might have to re-think my stance. For starters I had Null Rod , Collector Ouphe and Hall of Gemstone in mind.

Deserted Temple might be a shoe-in especially with Gaea's Cradle , you are right about Temple of the False God , Prismatic Vista will be taking a Forest spot soon.

God-Eternal Rhonas could be worth a shot, I do have some flex spots. Painter's Servant what a nasty card. The Grindstone combo does violate the LGS rules, but what i had in mind was to combo it with Lifeforce that and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon -X pops everyone's lands or if i feel like restarting the game I use it with All Is Dust .

I like where this deck is going, it feels really versatile for a Mono Green deck. I'll try to update it soon and get some games in for more data. Once again thanks for the help guys I really appreciate it.

SaberTech on Ancestral Animar

Ok, so I'm disappointed about Paradox Engine being banned and the effect that's going to have on a number of established competitive decks.

That being said, SWEET! I've been hoping that they would unban Painter's Servant for years now! It's essentially a second Spellskite for Animar that also makes Animar unblockable. Now it's not just Duel Commander Animar decks that get to have all the fun.

Painter's Servant opens up a variety of other options for other decks too. Mono Green gets to abuse Lifeforce and improve the viability of cards like Autumn's Veil and Veil of Summer . Mono black has Deathgrip . Lifeforce is probably the better card because it shuts down a number of dangerous black cards on its own, and might now find a home in Yisan, the Wanderer Bard decks since Yisan can tutor up the Servant to help Lifeforce lock down cards that get past its stax pieces. And, of course, the Servant also opens up the ability to pick opponents off with Grindstone .

Optimator on Mowu Musings

Predatory Urge or Ulvenwald Tracker would be good with Mowu's Vigilance.

Colossal Majesty , Restock , Abundance , Reclaim , Seasons Past , Wildest Dreams , Primal Command , Creeping Renaissance are additional card-draw and card-advantage cards worth considering.

Sandwurm Convergence would be useful late-game. Brooding Saurian might be a good utility piece. Homeward Path is better but $$. Verdurous Gearhulk maybe? Rhonas the Indomitable and Predator Ooze might make good blockers.

Might be a funny deck for shit like Nature's Wrath , Lifeforce , Choke , or Tsunami

PdMeasles on Titanic Titania

Ahah! I found your deck! Lol... You were on LabManiacs' stream a couple days ago right? I'm trying to build a MonoG Stax deck and was happy to see yours. Also really happy someone else knows Lifeforce exists. Was like the 4th card I put in mine. Great stuff!

Sylvanrush on Selvala Brostorm

1 year ago

Suggestions on delaying a win until turn 6? So I can basically drop her and go off.

I made a few changes to my version to help with that..

Included Thousand-Year Elixir (removed Benefactor's Draught) to kick her off as soon as I drop her on turn 6

Steely Resolve in, Carpet of Flowers out (can always name 'Scout' so not everyone benefits) to protect her

Instill Energy in, Scroll Rack out (kick her off as soon as she gets in)

Lightning Greaves in, Deglamer out (this one hurts, but I can't think of anything else to remove) to again, protect Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and give her haste when she drops

Other options:

Lifeforce to deal with black removal (use is little too narrow..)

Asceticism is sweet, but kinda pricy CMC wise to get out quickly

Another option, assuming I have the cards in hand, is dropping her early, and doing the old destroy everyone's permanents with the Staff of Domination Beast Within, Somberwald Stag, Eternal Witness and Temur Sabertooth combo - then just wait until turn 6 (not very nice, but hey)

Any other thoughts?

miracleHat on That Azusa deck with 69 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) basic forests.

Seer's Sundial + Tireless Tracker -> Regal Force + Recycle. This is a better and cheaper draw spell. Recycle synergies with Courser of Kruphix and Oracle of Mul Daya (if you choose to add them), Regal Force can stabalize a dicey board position.

Lifeforce + Seedtime -> Asceticism + Genesis Wave. Lifeforce and Seedtime are cute, but won't do what you want them to do. Asceticism deals with most removal fairly efficiently and Genesis Wave wins on the spot.

Waker of the Wilds -> Kamahl, Fist of Krosa. the Overrun on a creature will be worth more than having the option to create slightly larger lands.

Nissa, Vital Force -> Garruk, Primal Hunter. Drawing a lot of cards and/or getting his ultimate off wins the game (stabilizes board position at the very least). Everything else looks good!
