Marwyn, the Nurturer Discussion

HehaGardenHoe on BG Undergrowth

@Tzetsen Yeah, I've been pretty underwhelmed by Charnel Troll. I think that Jadelight Ranger is the ideal fit, but I'm trying to keep this somewhat budget. Isareth the Awakener is an option, as are Marwyn, the Nurturer and Runic Armasaur... but it's really hard with it being a less important slot for me.

Thank you for your suggestions! Marwyn, the Nurturer , Thada Adel, Acquisitor, and Ulvenwald Tracker will probably be good additions to the deck. Kalonian Hydra might also be good but there is always the risk of him getting kill spelled before I get a chance to swing.

The reason for Woodland Bellower is because he can tutor any small creature for me which is like 90% of my deck, he can especially tutor Fierce Empath which can tutor any of my big creatures like Craterhoof Behemoth. For Priest of Titania it ramps a lot of mana because all my mana dorks and ezuri are elfs. Phantasmal Image it just adds flexibility to the deck. Caller of the Claw is a nice way to have creatures on board just in case of a board wipe. Avenger of Zendikar is good by himself but combos really well with Craterhoof Behemoth thanks to Tooth and Nail.

I might take out Primal Vigor for one of your suggestions because that card is strong but it sadly helps my opponents too much. Also I have Doubling Season which is a great card.

Thanks once again. If you have any other tips please let me know.

TempleOfAsmodeus on Quick Easy Q: Marwyn, the ...

If I have Marwyn, the Nurturer on the battlefield and cast Sylvan Offering with X=3 (or Hunting Triad), does Marwyn get a single +1/+1 counter, or 3?

multimedia on Elves of Ravnica

Just updated with the new budget version, Budget Elves of Ravnica.

The strategy is some what different to account for the considerable decrease in deck price. Notable main deck cards excluded are: Pelt Collector, Steel Leaf Champion, Trostani Discordant, Knight of Autumn and Temple Garden. It's also Selesnya tribal Elves with Elvish Clancaller using convoke with Emmara, Soul of the Accord, Venerated Loxodon and Conclave Tribunal. The difference is I've added a ramp strategy with Marwyn, the Nurturer and Druid of the Cowl. The added ramp is for main deck Shalai, Voice of Plenty. The budget version can go aggressive with Loxodon or midrange/ramp with Marwyn/Shalai/Loxodon.

I decided to add main deck Shalai over main deck Whisperer because Shalai is much better against aggro than Whisperer. With the loss of Steel Leaf Champion in the budget version than the power level is decreased a lot therefore I need to add something that could recoup some power level; Shalai with ramp is my answer. Whisperer is still a powerful strategy with Elves, but for now he'll go in the sideboard for midrange/control matchups.

The sideboard is much different to also account for the decrease in deck price. Most notable card excluded is Vivien Reid. Unfortunately, Vivien is not a budget card for Standard. In her place I've added more Whisperer and Find / Finality. Find is quickly becoming one of my favorite cards in Guilds of Ravnica; I find my self putting it in all my green decks. Find is very good at recovery after removal or nonSettle board wipe; two mana to recur two different creatures is very good.

Finality is good too especially with Marwyn and Shalai and I could see adding some Woodland Cemetery to play it, but for now I'm leaving black out in the manabase. With the lose of Vivien, the budget version needs alternative ways of card advantage for midrange/control matchups which Find provides. Citywide Bust replaces Settle the Wreckage and is a significant downgrade, but it's a necessary answer to Carnage Tyrant or Ghalta, Primal Hunger. Reclamation Sage replaces Knight of Autumn.

Abzkaban on Ezuri budget

Looks good! You've got a lot of the Ezuri staples that don't break the bank. Looks like it would be pretty effective. I designed my Ezuri deck around elves. I'll leave a link to it here so you can take a look at it. You might find some ideas there.

A lot of variation in decks containing blue come from your meta which determine what control cards you need. For the most part what you've included looks fairly well-rounded. I do have a few suggestions with a budget in mind.

I had Urban Evolution on my list as well before I deemed it too slow. By the time you have mana to cast it, you shouldn't need the ramp it provides. There are also more efficient means of card draw. I can't begin to describe the card advantage you get from Primordial Sage and Soul of the Harvest. Your mana curve looks low enough that I think you could be taking advantage of them. And even if you needed more mana ramp (which I don't think you need too much more), Gyre Sage and Viridian Joiner would give you a kick in addition to your Marwyn, the Nurturer. If you want more draw effects from playing a single card, might I suggest Prime Speaker Zegana, Shamanic Revelation, or Soul's Majesty. Any one of them will net you more cards than you need.

The other thing I can't stress enough if Panharmonicon if it's not out of your budget. The value from having this out with Ezuri is crazy especially when you play cards like Cultivator of Blades and Experimental Aviator. You basically get two experience counters for every creature under 2 power that you put into play.

Also as an afterthought, if you wanted to get your Sage of Hours out faster, you could add in Momir Vig, Simic Visionary who is really just good for getting any creature you might need. He's excellent for drawing right into your infinite win con, though.

Nice deck! Ezuri is so much fun to play!

Yeah, and you could use Marwyn, the Nurturer as well with PookandPie's line.

SoulsSlayerKnight on First deck

You have a good start and I can see a general idea to where you can go with elves in this. If there's anything I could recommend (not to knowledgeable of elf cards here ha) is to try making a pure elf deck out of this deck. Elves are really powerful since they have lots of abilities that work as a team and even helps increases the ramp you'll need for later costs. By this I mean mana of any color and so on for each creature.

The only cards I'm able to find that I think would be very beneficial if you are to go an elf route is ones like Marwyn, the Nurturer, Poison-Tip Archer, Steel Leaf Champion if you can afford some. Thorn Lieutenant is another bit pricey one but beneficial. 2 or 3 is good in your case.

More elven clancallers would help all the elves out further if elf route is chosen. Not to sure on other artifacts or spells but I'm sure someone will know more than I do on it.

Good luck with the deck building and hope you enjoy it :)
