Marwyn, the Nurturer Discussion

Banner is pretty bad against aggro decks, it’s for midrange and control since go-wide decks are soft to wraths, which those decks are likely to play in some number in their 75 and it’s a better Experimental Frenzy there. It plays like Beast Whisperer that also anthems and will most likely never be removed, where Banefire is also best against slower decks but requires you to have way more of an initial presence to generate lethal damage with against decks that are actively trying to keep you from doing that. Turn 3 banner, turn 4 beast whisperer into whatever else is game over in most spots. Why remove things when all of your 1-2 drop elves are 5/5s with haste? Also check out Marwyn, the Nurturer as a 1-2 of, she’s disgusting if she stays in play.

Also, I'm always a little wary of Eladamri, Lord of Leaves . Shroud is both awesome and can be really annoying too. Sometimes it's real helpful to be able to target your own stuff. So for example you use the reinforce effect from Hunting Triad and you wanna use it on Joraga Warcaller to get an extra bump, or Marwyn, the Nurturer to up your mana production, you can't. Just a personal feel on that one I guess lol

@Vash13 yes it is a creature that absolutely has to be dealt with otherwise.... Bad times. If they let it go, those counters can be placed of something like a Marwyn, the Nurturer , or my personal favourite, put those counters on Joraga Warcaller , that makes things and absolute monster. It really does force some removal usage at the very least. Glad it's working for you man

Lanzo493 on Experimenting with untap

Horseshoe Crab , Vigean Graftmage , Pili-Pala , Simic Ragworm , Knacksaw Clique , and Soliton are a bunch of untap effects you can run. Combine them with anything that produces multiple mana, Gyre Sage , Karametra's Acolyte , Argothian Elder , Marwyn, the Nurturer , Viridian Joiner , Incubation Druid , Gyre Engineer , or Elvish Aberration and you have infinite mana.

With infinite mana, cards like Cytoplast Manipulator look better. Infinite mana also means infinite untaps, so Sage of Hours got better, too.

Just personal preference, but I think Marwyn, the Nurturer is way better in a deck where you have big ramp targets like Carnage Tyrant or something similar. In this deck, she can get a lot of counters and get big, but she has no evasion so she isnt really a threat as long as they have 1 blocker. Even with all the counters, the best move with her is probably Banefire , but in a deck like this (appears to be more of a go-wide) hoping to draw a Banefire to close out a game seems very unreliable.

Since you are playing Jund and have access to R and B, I would recommend some number of Lava Coil , even if its in the SB. Being able to exile things is critical in this standard (looking at you Arclight Phoenix ) and it still takes out any of the Izzet drakes (as their power gets big but toughness ususally stays at 4).

multimedia I appreciate the tips. As far as mana, I'm going to play test a few times with paper before I finalize how I break down Shock versus Check lands. How many Unclaimed Territory would you suggest?

Currently I have Steel Leaf Champion back in the deck, the arguments raised about how powerful it is are accurate and it shouldn't be left out. However I currently have it in place of Marwyn, the Nurturer and I'm not sure if that is the right play. Should I be cutting something else for Steel Leaf?

I appreciate the suggestions thus far guys. Keep them coming

SynergyBuild on Yisan is running slowly.

$20ish Budget way to make Yisan very fast:

Add in Arbor Elf , Fyndhorn Elves , Wirewood Symbiote , Seeker of Skybreak , Temur Sabertooth , Priest of Titania , Elvish Archdruid , Boreal Druid , Devoted Druid , Great Oak Guardian , Autumn's Veil , Nature's Claim , Natural State , Caustic Caterpillar , Reclamation Sage , Desert Twister , Copperhorn Scout , Wood Elves , Somberwald Stag , Manglehorn , Marwyn, the Nurturer , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Leaf Gilder , Heart Warden , Fyndhorn Elder

Drop out Taunting Elf , Verdant Force , Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger , Wild Beastmaster , Worldspine Wurm , Pathbreaker Ibex , Mycoloth , Kamahl, Fist of Krosa , Gyre Sage , Giant Adephage , Elvish Piper , Cultivator of Blades , Bramble Elemental , Avenger of Zendikar , Tooth and Nail , See the Unwritten , Triumph of the Hordes , Overrun , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Genesis Wave , Explosive Vegetation , Zendikar Resurgent , Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Umbral Mantle , Lifecrafter's Bestiary

Total of 26 swaps.

The switches lists speed the deck up and make it win through an easy and efficient combo, all fetchable by Yisan. The combo uses Great Oak Guardian , Temur Sabertooth , and Wirewood Symbiote . With these and enough mana producing creatures, you get infinitely large creatures or with 1 more mana, infinitely large creatures and infinite mana, and untaps which can be put into Yisan to fetch Caterhoof and give the team trample.

All together, the deck will also run enough early-game interaction like Caustic Caterpillar , Manglehorn , Reclamation Sage , Natural State , Nature's Claim , the already run Lignify and Acidic Slime , and catch-alls like Desert Twister and Yisan fetchables like Somberwald Stag .

With all of this in mind, it is a little weak to removal, but with Eternal Witness and Temur Sabertooth both fetchable with Yisan, I feel it can be okay.

How does this sound?

TheKamikazeBagel on Gyrus Hydra Tribal

I would suggest Winding Constrictor , as its a favorite of mine.

If you want some janky cards to return from exile (from Gyrus' ability) Eternal Scourge , Squee, the Immortal , Riftsweeper .

Viridian Joiner / Marwyn, the Nurturer / Gyre Sage + Sword of the Paruns / Umbral Mantle = Infinite mana.
