Natural State Discussion

keraln on Shadow Perspective Combo (Competitive)

To be honest, I have done little testing besides goldfishing, but this is mainly a goldfish deck so I guess it's fine.

Looking at Amonkhet, I believe Natural State is going to get replaced by Dissenter's Deliverance and By Force in most sideboards. Dissenter's Deliverance is just better in most cases, as there are only a couple enchantments worth hitting in standard right now, especially with Stasis Snare being replaced by Cast Out.

In addition, many are already maindecking Manglehorn since it deals with both Mardu and Saheeli.

Returning to Weirding Wood, the main problem is that you need a 5th land to play New Perspectives. Plus, that land needs to enter untapped. This is partially fixed by playing more basics, which works well with Shefet Monitor.

I think that, even with the necessity for a 5th land, Weirding Wood is better because of all the artifact hate that all decks run now.

Huh Weirding Wood seems ok. The only issue I see is that it requires green to cast, which can be tricky sometimes. The colored mana is definitely a significant upside. I am very interested about how it has held up in testing, as it also might be good as Wood plays around Dissenter's Deliverance. It feels like I'd have to make some pretty significant manabase changes, but is that sacrifice worth the upside. I'm also not sure how played Natural State will be post-amonkhet, so that may also make me switch these around. Any recommendations from testing?

djnewellmit good call! I've updated the SB with Natural State since I already have exile with Dec in Stone, and I like that 1 CMC. I will keep Forsake the Worldly on file, however, for the reasons you stated. If nothing else, come September when Ixalan drops and Standard rotates I would need to make changes anyway.

For sideboard, I highly recommend Forsake the Worldly in place of Appetite for the Unnatural or Natural State in any deck running GW. Forsake is the same CMC as Appetite, and also at instant speed. On top of that, it is the most effective answer for Scrapheap Scrounger and also has the bonus of cycling. At this point, the 'gain 2 life' for Appetite seems negligible. There is a small case to keep Natural State asa more efficient answer at the lower CMC.

How about Forsake the Worldly in place of Appetite for the Unnatural or Natural State? Same CMC as Appetite, instant speed, and it more effectively answers Scrapheap Scrounger than either. The cycling just makes it even more useful.

Immolating Glare is good for Mainboard removal.

I would suggest Nature's Way, but I don't think your Creatures are big enough to make it work.

For your Sideboard I would go for things that protect your Creatures against board wipes.

Stuff like:

Tireless Tracker can give you draw if games go long.

Dissenter's Deliverance would be useful against Artifacts, but Appetite for the Unnatural also hits Enchantments. There is also Natural State to consider.

Which one you choose depends on what is problematic in your meta.

I would suggest this as a start, for your Sideboard:

3x Appetite for the Unnatural
3x Archangel Avacyn  Flip
4x Heroic Intervention
3x Selfless Spirit
2x Tireless Tracker

You might find that you want to adjust the numbers of Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Selfless Spirit, depending on your meta.

I think it's unforgivable to not include Paradox Engine and Gilt-Leaf Archdruid in this deck of all places ;)

Krosan Grip over either Naturalize or Natural State. I know it costs a bit more, but that split second has saved me from infinite combos more times than I can count.

You need Sylvan Library and Mind's Eye for more card advantage, I think.

Your land count is RIDICULOUSLY low. I know your commander produces mana, and that you're playing lots of mana dorks, but I'm nervous about your ability to even cast them. At the very least, you will have difficulty rebuilding from a board wipe. For that reason, Heroic Intervention seems like a must here.

You have most of the good anti-blue pieces here (Hall of Gemstone, etc) but you could get great value out of Winter Orb, since you have enough mana dorks to compensate. Also, Carpet of Flowers is an oft-forgotten card that usually pulls its weight, and sometimes wins single-handed.

Oracle of Mul Daya seems very important here. It can help find those rare lands. Also, Steely Resolve can protect your druids from spot removal.

I really wish Conspiracy was in your colors...

And the big target you're missing for Natural Order is Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.

Deck looks good to me! :)

I would change Natural State with Nature's Claim, as the latter has much broader scope, and most of the time the 4 health doesn't matter for overrun decks
