Praetor's Counsel Discussion

Emzed on It's Not Easy Being Green

1 day ago

I keep hearing/reading that people think green has trouble drawing cards. Sure, it can't really compete with blue, and you can certainly argue black comes in second, but green has great card advantage options as well. In my eyes, used correctly, they can be even better than most black tools (with the exceptions of Ad Nauseam and Necropotence which are both insane). I'm not going to go into detail, but just list you some green card advantage: Sylvan Library, Glimpse of Nature, Harmonize, Fecundity, Skullmulcher, Greater Good, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Genesis Wave, Soul of the Harvest, Primordial Sage, Recycle, Regal Force, Shamanic Revelation, Rishkar's Expertise, Praetor's Counsel, Seasons Past, Vizier of the Menagerie. Also, you have access to colorless cards like Mind's Eye, Memory Jar, Skullclamp, Horn of Greed and Slate of Ancestry. Obviously most of those cards require specific circumstances to work, like a high powered creature, a big number of creatures or lots of mana. Just select the ones that fit what your deck is trying to do and test to find the right number.

Seshiro is one of my favorites. Here are some considerations that might fill gaps:

Avoid Fate, Raking Canopy, Seedborn Muse, Snake Umbra, Bear Umbra, Frontier Siege, Stonehoof Chieftain, Hall of Gemstone, Skullwinder, Praetor's Counsel, Seed the Land, Endless Swarm, Zendikar Resurgent, Shamanic Revelation, Snake Pit, Rhonas's monument, Nylea, God of the Hunt and/or Rhonas the Indomitable.

Mana Reflection, Sylvan Library, Earthcraft, and Gaea's Cradle if you got em.

Forests are a risky Gauntlet to give out, maybe downgrade to Caged Sun if meta is heavy green.

Haven't used Mouth / Feed yet but probably a decent source of cards.

C4rnif3X I have been tweaking it for a little while now. Getting the mana is a good spot was probably the hardest part. I was running signets then I changed to more lands then I changed it to enchantments. And the enchantments seem to be working the best at 36 lands. I never ran any of the other praetor cards because I just wanted it to be low creature planeswalker centered. I chose Yawgmoth's Will over Praetor's Counsel because it was just much more mana efficient. This is also my "fun for the table" deck. I have Dirty Ol' Leovold if there are people around that want to play cut throat.

Oh and some others. Vizier of the Menagerie, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Natural Order,Manglehorn, Traproot Kami, Praetor's Counsel and Genesis Wave are a few others that might be good here.

Have you considered Undead Alchemist, Withered Wretch, or ways to exile graveyards? Every single color has ways to recur and abuse milled cards, think Praetor's Counsel, Mizzix's Mastery, Living Death, any Black reanimation spell, et cetera. Your meta may have none of that, tho. My Graveyard Factory started like yours, but I eventually decided I only wanted to mill myself (it's faster).

rob89 i have a Sachi Commander if you wanna see it Shaman's rage) quite a long time and i can say its my favorite one, that infinite combo looks pretty nice but i recomend put Primal Surge and cut instants and sorceries and put creatures to do the work like Silklash Spider, Stonehoof Chieftain or Wild Beastmaster, Winter Orb can make you win games easily in the late game you don't need lands anymore and you can stop other players to cast spells also Praetor's Counsel helps a lot when plays destroy al creatures spells
