Crested Craghorn , Flowstone Overseer , Krosan Cloudscraper , Root Elemental , Fanatic of Xenagos sind einfach nicht gut... da gibt es besseres.

Vulshok Sorcerer da bin ich mir unsicher, was du damit willst. Ja, er kann gut sein, wenn jemand viele kleine Sachen spielt, aber sehr häufig ist er auch nutzlos.

Als Faustregel spiele ich immer 8 Mana Artefakte: Gruul Cluestone , Gruul Keyrune , Gruul Locket , Gruul Signet sind günstige Klassiker.

Ich habe noch ein paar Empfehlungen, die alle irgendwie mit Countern synergieren: Bane of Progress , Bow of Nylea , Curse of Predation , Curse of Stalked Prey , Durable Handicraft , Fangren Firstborn , Forgotten Ancient , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin , Longshot Squad (stellvertretend für alle Kreaturen mit Outlast), Mowu, Loyal Companion , Ravenous Slime , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Rubblebelt Raiders , Song of Freyalise , Verdurous Gearhulk , Ravager Wurm , Rhythm of the Wild

Hier noch Karten mit etwas höherem Preisschild (aber auch nicht zu hoch): Hardened Scales , Managorger Hydra , Pir, Imaginative Rascal

Vielleicht wäre es auch eine gute Möglichkeit Surrak Dragonclaw als Commander zu nehmen und dir so Zugriff auf Blau zu ermöglichen. Mir ist aufgefallen, dass bei dir eh ein wenig das Ziehen von Karten zu fehlen scheint.. Ansonsten empfehle ich Samut, Voice of Dissent . Ihr weiß kannst du wenn du willst ja auch ignorieren

This is great. This roars 'greeeeeeeeeen' from every single card. I like it a lot. I do have some suggestions you might like to consider:

Scute Mob helps you cast Ghalta. And it does even better if games go longer. Root Elemental and Myojin of Life's Web are pretty similar, but both very powerful here. Considering your amount of token generation, Stag Beetle might be interesting for you as well. Also, how about Ulvenwald Observer and Soul of the Harvest? Also, Thicket Elemental, Garruk's Horde, Mouth / Feed and Cream of the Crop all seem like they could do a good job here. Oh, and then, there is Zendikar Resurgent.

Thank you, based on your advice I think i'm going to swap out the Root Elemental for the Rumbling Slum and using four of the Cascading Cataracts though not sure which combination of basic land to remove. I've played this through a few times and the only thing that seems to be an issue is a major land drought or vice versa though this could be a shuffling issue :)

Master of the Veil or Root Elemental?

A litle more expensive but extremely useful in any Kruphix deck is a Doubling Cube, combined with Helix Pinnacle is an awesome win condition.

P.S. +1 for this awesome, unique build!

tadium54 on Kicker and Morph Interactions

Question involving interactions between morph and kicker:

If I cast Root Elemental face down, then pay it's morph cost to flip it up, (say I chose to put a Thicket Elemental from my hand into play), can I just pay the kicker cost on the Thicket Elemental, reveal the top card until I hit a creature and then put that into play too?

The way Thicket Elemental is worded makes me think I can.

Thanks everyone.
