Overwhelming Stampede Discussion
2 days ago
In my opinion, you can't have an Elves deck without both Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip (I refrained from saying Gaea's Cradle due to price, Itlimoc is pretty much the same thing anyway).
Beastmaster Ascension is a nice creature buff, especially since with Elves, you're probably gonna hit face a lot.

This is neat, not my style, but I like the cohesion. You might think of including Creakwood Liege for some buffs and tokens. Ant Queen doesn't make saplings, but it'll pump out tokens like no other. Cards to give you an advantage for having so many tokens are Craterhoof Behemoth, Beastmaster Ascension, and Overwhelming Stampede.

Deadly Tempest seems a weird card choice for a saproling deck, virtually any other board wipe would be a better deal.
You can also go infinite with Illusionist's Bracers and the Ashnod's Altar.
If you have a spare Doubling Season there is no reason not to include it over Primal Vigor. You can run them both.
More card engines, I always try to include at least eight of them. The usual suspects for me are Deathreap Ritual, Shamanic Revelation, Skullmulcher, Disciple of Bolas, Phyrexian Arena, Seasons Past, Vampiric Rites...
I'd add some board pumps as win conditions in order not to depend just on Ashnod's Altar, it can be removed or countered. Overwhelming Stampede, Beastmaster Ascension, Triumph of the Hordes, Bloodspore Thrinax or Craterhoof Behemoth, all of them are solid cards.
To make space I'd drop the thallid theme (keeping Psychotrope Thallid as card engine), it doesn't feel strong enough, but if you still really want to go with the thallids I'd add Winding Constrictor.
I would also cut Champion of Stray Souls and Verdeloth the Ancient.

So Ive made some changes.... again... this time its because I needed two cards for another deck Im building but made some other changes due to their effects which will help make games easier for me and harder for everyone else lol ;)

Oh, I already tried all of those except Deus of Calamity (cause I wanna keep some friends, LD is a bitch) and took 'em out. Triple coloured mana is really bad in a 4C deck (for me, at least, I had True Conviction dead in hand too many times) and Charnelhoard Wurm turned out too expensive mana-wise, so I never played it. All good cards definitely, but didn't work for me. Overwhelming Stampede-like effects was also something I used to do here but replaced eventually with other cards with repetitional use.
I'm still intrigued in replacing Ultimatas with your first two suggestions though.... Maybe I'll look around for them.

First of all, love the deck. Secondly, i see the obvious land recursion/sacrifice theme here, I just think a few cards could really help close out games. Pathbreaker Ibex is an Overwhelming Stampede on a stick. World Shaper floods back all lands from your graveyard. Primal Command has a lot of utility. Crystal Vein is a nice land to recur. noticing a lack of draw here, Rishkar's Expertise, Hunter's Insight, Lifecrafter's Bestiary. Second Harvest can help double tokens. oh, and Triumph of the Hordes is OP for decks that run big fatties.

You're the best man to decide whether they are worth swapping out parts for. They became very powerful centerpieces of my own Saskia deck, so I thought I'd drop them. I would definitely consider swapping out the Ultimata for something for consistent, like True Conviction.
Also, for taking advantage of Saskia's ability, you could look for cards which have a specific effect on "Whenever it deals damage to a player" (as opposed to combat damage). Examples I ended up including in my own list are Charnelhoard Wurm and Deus of Calamity.

Hi JuQ, thanks for the ton of feedback. You've noticed correctly that this deck isn't fit (yet) to be some sort of land-drop paradise. I do not intend to let it become about that. At least not all about that :) That takes out a lot of the fun I've had with the original idea of this deck; swinging with some good bruisers in plain old combat.
Having said that, I will definitely take some of your recommendations for a spin. Burgeoning will (at least temporarily) make room for Birds of Paradise and Bow of Nylea will make room for Oracle of Mul Daya. Though I've not had much issues with draw in this deck, I'll also replace Overwhelming Stampede with Shamanic Revelation. Last but not least, I think using Champion of Rhonas could be more efficient in in all green deck compared to Quicksilver Amulet; so that'll be my final replacement.
Again, thanks for the ideas. I wish you happy brewing and good games.
