Unha110w3d on sliver swarm, bring them slivers out

Montezuma2 Virulent Sliver ok no idea how i missed this card, but i am definitely put it in, thanks for the suggestion, as for Hivestone its mainly there to turn token creatures produced by Assemble the Legion and Retreat to Emeria into slivers and was thinking of also adding Birthing Boughs , which doesn't benefit hivestone, but its there to flood the board with slivers.

Tyrannical Generosity

Legendary Enchantment - Regime

At the beginning of your upkeep, choose a permanent you control and a permanent target opponent controls that both share at least one same type. Exchange control of those permanents.

The people grow fearful and rumor rises of a rebellion? Fine. Let's give the people what they want - and take what they have.

Oooooh the pain I could cause with an Enchantment like this...

Okay, so several Landfall creatures produce creature tokens. Omnath, Locus of Rage , Nesting Dragon , Rampaging Baloths , Emeria Angel and Retreat to Emeria . My challenge is to make another Landfall creature token machine, this time in your choice of either of the following:

  • Mono-Blue
  • Mono-Black
  • Dimir

Bloodfrenzy I am definitely going to see if I can squeeze at least a copy of Path of Bravery in there. Seems like a no-brainer with all the lifegain.

skeetskeet sweet that You like it. What would say is missing if anything? Also would you say the lifegain here justifies swapping the Retreat to Emeria for Path of Bravery ?

Bloodfrenzy Thank you for your input. I initially included Kabira Evangel in the deck, but had to cut it due to budget. I still feel like Brave the Elements is the right card in there. It can also protect against board wipes. With regards to Retreat to Emeria you are right, it is too slow. Maybe I should just add a couple more creatures instead?

Deck is really good, but I tested it against some mid-range and it seems to have to win very quick. I think you should consider Kabira Evangel instead of the Brave the Elements . He's slower but offers more ally synergy with same effect that lasts the rest of the game. Also Unbreakable Formation might be good for field wipes. I think you should just drop the Retreat to Emeria it's slow and since there's no draw by the time it gets out you only get value every once in awhile by top decking a land. Maybe [path of bravery] could replace it to go along with the life gain idea or just add more allies.

I never understood why so many people build Karametra as an enchantress deck. Her strength is clearly Creatures and Landfall! So I'm glad you are running Courser of Kruphix , Lotus Cobra , Emeria Shepherd , Emeria Angel , Rampaging Baloths , Admonition Angel , Tireless Tracker , and Avenger of Zendikar .

But in a deck that takes so much advantage of landfall, why only 1 fetchland? If you added more fetchlands, and then Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Ramunap Excavator . . . suddenly your Lotus Cobra is getting you 6 mana per turn completely for free, Rampaging Baloths is dropping 6 beast tokens per turn completely for free. Plus the extras you'll get for playing creatures and triggering Karametra.

Obviously fetchlands plus Karametra/Creatures triggers will run you out of basics to fetch. But when that happens you should be so far ahead that you can find a wincon.
If you put in Quirion Ranger , Scryb Ranger , Jungle Basin , and Karoo , and you don't even need lands in your deck to keep getting the land drop triggers.

If you wanted even more land drops you could of course run Wayward Swordtooth , Oracle of Mul Daya , Llanowar Scout , Sakura-Tribe Scout , Walking Atlas , probably others I can't think of off the top of my head.

More ways to take advantage of so much landfall: Retreat to Kazandu , Grazing Gladehart , Oran-Rief Hydra , Retreat to Emeria , Stone-Seeder Hierophant (toss in a Wild Growth , Utopia Sprawl , or Overgrowth and watch what Stoneseeder can do in this deck!)

Fetchlands Available to G/W: Terramorphic Expanse Evolving Wilds Myriad Landscape Flooded Strand Bloodstained Mire Wooded Foothills Blighted Woodland Bant Panorama Esper Panorama Grixis Panorama Jund Panorama Naya Panorama Marsh Flats Verdant Catacombs Arid Mesa Misty Rainforest Terminal Moraine Thawing Glaciers

Potential Removals:

Paradox Engine Worst case scenario, you play the card with not enough pieces to go off and someone instantly krosan grips the card.

Jaddi Offshoot You have more efficient ways of generating Lifegain.

Mikaeus, the Lunarch Isn't impactful enough when it hits the board or when it stays needs paradox engine to be abused and there are easier ways to go about this effect.

Oblivion Ring Excellent cheap removal but unfortunately there are better removal spells that are available

Elspeth, Knight-Errant Not impactful, deck isn't primarily combat focused.

Cryptolith Rite Isn't going to ramp out karametra any faster with the weenie creatures you have (Most of your 1 drops already tap for mana) your deck would be better off running Farhaven Elf

Potential additions:

Avenger of Zendikar No brainer

Rampaging Baloths Works with your landfall theme, this is easily abusable with an instant payoff.

Blackblade Reforged You have enough flyers to abuse this equipment easily

Admonition Angel More landfall goodness (with exile)

Grand Abolisher Cheaper version of Dragonlord Dromoka

Quarantine Field removal

Titania, Protector of Argoth Insurance

Sword of the Animist Landfall redundancy

Emeria Angel
