Nemata, Grove Guardian Discussion

Hi there,

your deck looks sweet :-)

I just stumbled upon the imperious perfect and peema, maybe you would want to exchange them for more straightforward options since you do not rely on elves at all (and tapping for a token producer is the slow way to get more tokens). You might want to consider Nemata, Grove Guardian and Deranged Hermit instead since they provide a shitload of tokens you can work with... and Nemata is a winoption herself ;-) If you want more saproling tokens you can try Verdeloth the Ancient.

Best regards

lonker there are a few saproling lord type cards out there: Nemata, Grove Guardian, Thelonite Hermit, and Verdeloth the Ancient.

Pretty well finished rebuilding the deck last night. Spent a few hours in Forge, and the deck plays a LOT better than it ever has. I always had options for the defense or offense style I wanted to employ, I didn't feel nearly as vulnerable as I used to, and I could consistently gain health, which was harder before.

Deadbridge Chant and Meren of Clan Nel Toth were fantastic additions. They really tied the strengths of the deck together.

Fixing the mana made a pretty significant improvement. It was rare to either have an opening hand or an early draw that was low on mana. In the future I plan on fixing it even more with the more expensive versions of the mana-fixing and ramp cards.

The only card I regret taking out at the moment is Cover of Darkness. Before I play the deck with my playgroup I am going to fit it back in somehow. Also, we'll see how taking out Gravity Well feels. My playgroup can be pretty flyer heavy with Angels/Dragons/Slivers, but currently I have Sudden Spoiling, Spidersilk Armor, and Tower Defense as answers (as well as a Treefolk or two with Reach). Ultimately I would probably drop Tower Defense for Gravity Well.

Targetting a tapped Tree of Perdition with a bunch of stolen health with Korozda Guildmage and saccing has turned into a very strong combo for dozens of Saprolings for 4CMC. It's so strong that it would almost be worth declaring Saprolings instead of Treefolk for my Coat of Arms, depending on when it comes out. I really struggled for a consistent source of chump blockers or sac outlets before. Nemata, Grove Guardian is way too slow. This new setup works very well through either the Guildmage or Verdeloth the Ancient's kicker.

Gift of the Deity on Sapling of Colfenor is still an absolute monster. I can attack solely with her each turn to proc her ability, clean out the opposing player's creatures, and leave the rest of my army untapped for defense against the other players. Even before I rebuilt the deck I could win games with her as the only creature on the battlefield.

In Garruk's Wake may make it back into the deck, as Decree of Pain as my only boardwipe is kind of rough.

As always, I'm still looking for any suggestions or critiques! As it stands this deck is a hell of a lot of fun to play, and fairly unique, but there is always room for improvement. Thanks for reading!

Sorry for the double post, but Nemata, Grove Guardian would also do great work in the 99.

I love this theme for a deck :)

I would personally add Budoka Gardener to the deck - his flip condition is very easy and he's good both early game and late game.

Since you are playing all legendary - Konda's Banner seems like an auto flavor include :)

Im also kind of a fan of Nemata, Grove Guardian with your ability to make so much mana this gives you something to do with all that mana every turn other then just Oviya and combo's decently with another legend Verdeloth the Ancient

From a flavor perspective you could also choose to play Hero's Blade and Adventurers' Guildhouse though im not sure how into that you would like to go

This deck will have a lot of mana and finding thematic ways to use it was difficult. Joraga Auxiliary is not totally on theme but they are a cool way to funnel mana into. Sprout Swarm, Nemata, Grove Guardian, and Jade Mage are some other thematic mana sinks.

Collective Blessing and Dictate of Heliod are probably not the most thematic but with all the plats and saporlings and vanilla creatures they need some pumps.

Two of the cards that I actually have but dropped because I didn't have the deck to support the tokens are Verdeloth the Ancient and Nemata, Grove Guardian. I bet it wouldn't be too hard to spam really strong Saprolings that way, haha.

Ooft the Heliod, God of the Sun builds I looked at look downright evil, I like it! And you wouldn't expect those themes either.

Mono white aswell would help complete my themes of a mono deck for every colour. So far I have a Nemata, Grove Guardian sporeling list and a Mistform Ultimus aggro list!
