Rith, the Awakener Discussion

I second Marath, Will of the Wild, by far my favorite and very versatile.

If you're looking for something more Timmy-ish, I would go for Rith, the Awakener. There's also Tana, the Bloodsower + Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

Sorry for the late reply but yes, it has done absurd work. I originally had it in because I didn't have a Gaea's Cradle when I made the deck and I decided to keep it in when I got a cradle. In this deck, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip does the following: (1) dig four cards for an enchantress, god, or saproling funtime creature, (2) trigger enchantress effects out on the field, and (3) flip after a single Rith, the Awakener trigger. If I have it in hand, I generally try to get Rith out first, which means you will have enough mana to use Rith's ability then cast Growing Rites in the same turn.

yeah. that's true. 'cause you can run Slimefoot, the Stowaway and Thallid Omnivore from Dominaria in the colors from Abzan. so that's pretty neat. My friend combocatastrophy167 is going to build a Saproling deck around Tana, the Bloodsower partnering with Ravos, Soultender from C16. with those as your commander, you can use both Naya ánd Abzan in one deck. so you can run Ghave, Guru of Spores ánd Rith, the Awakener

Choose a permanent color. Create a 1/1 green Saproling creature token for each permanent of that color.

If you control Rith, the Awakener, put a +1/+1 token on each saproling you control.

Same challenge as above

I haven't played it much lately (my EDH group all moved away, though we did get together over the holidays for a game), but it was REALLY fun. Rith, the Awakener is not especially powerful, but she's a real blast to play. And she should be even better now with some new Saproling cards from DOM.

You may find these decks useful as well ... I leaned heavily on them while building my deck.

By the way, Primevals' Glorious Rebirth makes it look like we're going to get a new Rith card this summer too! There's a little more about it over on this post.

Thanks much, Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor!


Yeah, that's definitely them ... from left to right it's Treva, the Renewer, Rith, the Awakener, Darigaaz, the Igniter/Darigaaz Reincarnated, Crosis, the Purger, and Dromar, the Banisher.

I love Naya colors, and not just for the fatties.
I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the Token theme yet, as it's one of my absolute favorites:

Some already mentioned:

Please let us know what you end up doing! And good luck on the build!
