Primal Growth

Sorcery

Kicker—Sacrifice a creature. (You may sacrifice a creature in addition to any other costs as you cast this spell.)

Search your library for a basic land card, put that card onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library. If Primal Growth was kicked, instead search your library for two basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

Primal Growth Discussion

Emzed on Budget Unblockable UG Weenies

4 hours ago

I think One with Nature, Whirler Rogue, Awakening Zone, Behold the Beyond, Shamanic Revelation, Bow of Nylea and Bident of Thassa would all fit your deck very well.
Sundering Vitae is similar to Naturalize, but looks a lot better in the context of your deck.
I am not sure if Downsize, Reclaim, Primal Growth and the 1/1 fliers with no other abilities are quite good enough. Also, in your low curve 2 color deck, Chromatic Lantern seems unnecessary, Simic Signet is probably better if you need the ramp at all. Dissipate is expensive at 3 mana, i would play Unified Will or Arcane Denial instead.
You might want a couple of ways to answer an opponent's creature in case it becomes too threatening. Consider Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Reality Shift, Lignify, Control Magic or Ulvenwald Tracker.

WargRave on Yasova taking over control

1 month ago

Just some random thoughts, sorry for the disorder. I don't really have time to organize this atm.

You're extremely light on way to interact with _non_creatures. You're gonna feel real silly as a green deck when you're facing an Asceticism and you don't have so much as a Reclamation Sage to deal with one enchantment. Consider taking out the tapping subtheme and adding Decimate, Beast Within, Hull Breach, or similar cards. Get Cyclonic Rift in there too. You need Turn to Frog much less than more noncreature interaction. Most any creature you can target, you can steal, one way or another, and the ones you can't probably aren't numerous enough to make Turn to Frog worth it.

17/39 is a lot of etb tapped lands. Try to replace some guildgates and Smoldering Crater at least, swap them for untapped dual lands, or conditionally untappeds or basics. I would guess that, while also etb tapped, the U and G vivid lands would serve better than guildgates. High Market has great utility with your gameplan. Opal Palace is possible, it helps with Yasova's power.

FYI, you can tag cards into multiple categories, so Helm of Possession, Grab the Reins, and Demonmail Hauberk can both go under Sacrificing as well. You might want even more sac outlets and fewer steal effects. Your general gives you the second but not the first, so the rest of your deck should provide more of the first and less of the second to ensure you have one of each every turn. It seems like you can do better than Barrin, Master Wizard. What about Ooze Garden? There's always the classics Fling and Birthing Pod.

You need card draw too, and a generous amount. A hand with 4 Threaten effects is a lot worse than one with 3 threaten effects and a Harmonize. At the very least, no Tibalt please. He doesn't even count as a steal effect, he's too slow for that. Shamanic Revelation, Rishkar's Expertise, and Treasure Cruise are all options. Skullclamp can turn your enemy's dorks into cards for you, or just pump up Yasova and give her death insurance. Add some more like Elvish Mystic of your own for more consistency out of the clamp. Life's Legacy and Momentous Fall do double duty. If Yasova is out, Life's Legacy is probably better than a hand of three threatens.

By the way, OG Threaten isn't good enough to make the cut, and Kari Zev's Expertise and Act of Aggression might not be enough of an improvement.

Under your ramp package, Temur Banner should be Commander's Sphere and Nissa's Pilgrimage should be Cultivate to fix your colors. You've got a pretty high curve, so adding even more ramp and bringing down the curve would help. Better to play a spell with 80% power than have a 100% power spell stuck in hand for three turns. Think about exchanging Clone Legion, Nissa's Renewal, and one of the expensive threaten effects with Rampant Growth, Farseek, and Primal Growth which gives another sac outlet. With more cheap fixing, you can run more basics, and therefor fewer etb tapped lands.

Rancor is nice for helping the general, much more efficient than Incremental Growth I think. Stormsurge Kraken seems pretty intimidating but it doesn't advance the gameplan and Yasova herself is pretty easy to remove.

MTGApprentice2016 on Best Ramp Effects

1 month ago

Nature's Will can lead to some decent pseudo ramp for your secondary main phase. Primal Growth is good for a token build as well. I'd also consider Wood Elves as it can search out any forest and Yavimaya Elder which gets you a couple of lands in hand and draws a card. I'm only suggesting the creatures because I see your running Burgeoning and Oracle of Mul Daya which, let you drop another land on your turn. Another creature to consider is Azusa, Lost but Seeking which also lets you drop more land per turn.

Hi!

Welcome on T/O! A very helpfull community with many interesting resources.

I checked your list and I came up with these suggestions:

My personal favorite deck I am playing these days is this deck. It's very strong and can punish people really hard. But this is also a competitive build, not suited for each meta. Feel free to give it a visit and I always appreciate an upvote :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise on any of your decks, then you can always summon me or post on my wall for help.

Cheers,

PJ

If you can get them Primal Growth and Perilous Forays are great for turning Saprolings into lands.

Don't want to flood you with suggestions, but I have a Ghave token swarm decklist that might help you out with card ideas.

ExiliusGallant on Selvala's Hydra-ball

1 month ago

Looks like a great list but I wonder, why are there even Birds of Paradise there? They can be traded for a simple Wild Growth

There are also a couple land searchers missing: Explosive Vegetation, Harrow(this one is great with double mana), Kodama's Reach, Mwonvuli Acid-Moss or Primal Growth

If not. At least untap Selvala, you can have Wirewood Lodge instead of that Reliquary Tower, i don't see you having a lot of hand

BTW, if you lose Selvala you really lose it all :/

So, I would recomend at least a couple of this Vernal Bloom, Regal Behemoth, Mana Reflection or Zendikar Resurgent

hi

sieht auf auf den ersten blick ganz gut aus. die wincon mit bonehoard + jarad und das thema um sacrifising. wichtig sind Blood Artist, Falkenrath Noble, Zulaport Cutthroat usw. msstest trotzdem zum einen die curve runterbekommen und zum anderen viel ramp adden. Verdant Force wrde ich da rausnehmen, macht viel zu wenig fr die irren manakosten. golgari hat grn, das sollte man auch nutzen und mehr rampen. Rise from the Grave wrde ich cutten fr etwas a la Fertilid, Yavimaya Elder, Primal Druid oder Farhaven Elf, damit du das ausnutzen kannst mit reanimate.. in sachen sac outlets (mglichkeiten kreaturen zu opfern), du hast den high market schon, wrde dir raten noch zwischen Ashnod's Altar, Greater Good und Birthing Pod was rauszusuchen damit es nen weiteren bereich abdeckt, draw ist ganz wichtig eigentlich. weitere empfehlungen wren Harvester of Souls. eine mglichkeit ne infinite dmg combo zu spielen wre Mikaeus, the Unhallowed und Triskelion, wenn dir die karten nicht zu viel kosten.

Phyrexian Arena und Primal Growth sind gut.
