Flagellum on Nature AND Nurture with Marwyn

rangab7: Haha completely forgot about to write in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx which is already in the deck >.<

I was already on the fence with Wolfbriar Elemental and I had Skullclamp in the OG build but was concerned with the elf lord anthems essentially nullifying it's glory. Gelatinous Genesis is in the same boat.

Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury is everything one could hope for. Spits out elves, pumps Marwyn, removal, and card draw. Unless there is disruption she just seems kind of slow.

You need Skullclamp , Umbral Mantle for sure

you need to cut things like Runic Armasaur , and Wolfbriar Elemental and add more elf payoffs Similarly, cut Gyre Sage for Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury and you need to focus your deck more. Elves are powerful because they can come back from their strategy being disrupted naturally without adding too many payoffs. Here's my deck http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/ramp-till-youre-dead-2/ as an example, it uses a primarily solitaire combo but it goes aggro if it fails. Just focus your deck a bit and it should work

Also on a final note Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a must incle

Maybe Defy Death , Norn's Annex are 2 that I can think of. You could replace Boon Reflection with True Conviction , as pretty much all of your life gain comes from lifelink, you will get the "double life gain" from double strike and it will give you another life link source. You will also get more damage and it can also add more devotion for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx .

I agree that 4 Leyline is the better option.

I'd find a way to get:

3 Rest in Peace

and 3 Stony Silence as well.

Also, I run a Martyr Proc deck and have found a really great mana base balance, FWIW - (Obviously you don't need Mistveil Plains )

4x Flagstones of Trokair 1x Ghost Quarter 3x Field of Ruin 1x Eiganjo Castle 1x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

Than your plains, Canopies or whatever.

Not a fan of Watchtower.

Plus 1 though for the Gideon list!

What about Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ? Nice deck btw

I dunno, man. I'll tell you one thing - I really love Vorapede. I used to keep 1 in the deck (or sideboard, i forgot) when I first discovered it because it just seemed so good, but if you want an answer from my purely competitive standpoint I would say they just cost too much mana. The lower-cost creatures in the stompy deck are so good already at beating the opponent's face in, lol. Especially with all the help from the Rancor/Aspect/Vines etc. Then again, you just told me they have been working for you. If they are working for you in your specific play group /local meta then by all means, continue using them. One thing I would still recommend is to TRY replacing them for a more streamlined deck (4x the main creatures and like 1 or 2 flex 2-or-3 drops).

You could always try building a hybrid stompy/devotion style deck with mana dorks and all the good 3 drops (4x Leatherback Baloth , 4x Steel Leaf Champion -- possibly even Arbor Colossus , Rhonas the Indomitable and/or Nylea, God of the Hunt , Gigantosaurus , Verdurous Gearhulk and the brand new card Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi , etc etc etc.). And more than 1 Ghalta, Primal Hunger . It's a little awkward with only 4 elves as mana dorks, though... so you'd still wanna try and play some experiment ones or pelt collectors, I'd assume. But, I dunno. As I type this I feel more and more like this would just warrant going full Devotion and breaking from the earlier game plan with smaller creatures and more to playing cards like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Genesis Wave or that brand new card Finale of Devastation , etc...

  • But I'm rambling on again, heh. Short answer, no, I think Vorapede is too slow for a deck trying to, ideally, win before you're even able to cast it. But if it works for you then it's all good. Just at least try dropping them for a bit and see what happens. One card that Corbin played in his video that you may wanna try is Groundbreaker . I would play 1 of those about 50% of the time and I really like it. Only downside is drawing a hand with all the goodies but your only creature being the Groundbreaker to start...
