Rootborn Defenses Discussion
3 days ago
Hey there, Is it okay for your playgroup that you use a non-legendary card as your commander? If so and you will continue to use Godsire, then you should consider tokendoublers. I am aware that some of them are kind of expensive, but on the other side, some of them arent: Anointed Procession, Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, Primal Vigor.
Populate, can work very good as well, because you play with huge Tokens: Druid's Deliverance, Growing Ranks, Rootborn Defenses, Sundering Growth, Trostani's Judgment, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage, Wake the Reflections, Wayfaring Temple, also great: Samut, Voice of Dissent.
Altough you have to think about, wich route you want to go with the deck. I would say swarm with tokens and go broad, not Voltron. But if you want to Voltron like hell, you should consider the follwing: Ramp like f*** in the first few turns. Godsire is expensive! and then give it a boost! Godsire has the Potential of killing in one hit if you combine it with the following:
Double Strike: Assault Strobe, Avatar of Slaughter, Battle Mastery, Berserkers' Onslaught, Blood Mist, Boros Charm, Duelist's Heritage, Fireshrieker, Psychotic Fury, Samut, the Tested, Silverblade Paladin, Temur Battle Rage.
Combine this with +X'er: Berserk, Dragon Throne of Tarkir on one of the Tokens, Fatal Frenzy, Nantuko Mentor, Onward, Overwhelming Stampede, Pathbreaker Ibex, Rush of Blood, Wine of Blood and Iron, Xenagos, God of Revels.
I hope i could help you.

Thanks for your comment :) I looked into your deck and realised I had forgotten cards like Feast of Blood and Rootborn Defenses, going to try to add those into my own deck. It seems like you're going heavy on playing vampire creature cards and making tokens. I'm no expert but I would recommend to add some card draw like Skullclamp at least and maybe thin some creatures out. I'm also little sceptic about how good the Call the Bloodline is, I fear you will end up with no cards in hand pretty quick with it.
Nice to see you have also found the leaked Ixalan cards, I'm already planning how to change the deck to include those four :)

usaDiabetic Hahaha honestly I really appreciate your interest in this deck so thank you very much and I really appreciate all the suggestions. That said Here's my opinionn on all options,Retreat to Emeria-- It's got some potential, def a maybeboard.
Hanweir Militia Captain Flip-- Definitely would benefit from the token, but it would become a target the moment It's flipped. One of the main strategies I was thinking of when building this deck is trying to sit below the radar. I want my opponents to have to struggle to pick a target on my board until they withdraw they're moves or aim removal elsewhere in order to maintain value. In HIMYM, Ted dates so many girls in the series, there are only minor moments that hint at him finding the right one. In this deck, we don't want our opponent to know who our winner is until the last season. In order to do that we have to give him an abundance of information to speculate. For this reason, I've also avoided the use of cards like Scytheclaw and Batterskull, because the moment they become attached, we start giving our opponent a reason to look at our board. If we want our opponent to man up and target us we want to make him/her pull the trigger on a full boardwipe and hopefully let it hit the whole board. I'm also using this reason to exclude the following: Bonehoard, Cathedral of War, Duelist's Heritage, and to a lesser extent Citadel Siege (to get boardwide use is too slow).
Sublime Archangel is a lot better than the cathedral, but I doubt I'll get more than 1 turn out of it, plus we run into a similar issue of putting a lot of energy into a 1 turn move.
I like the idea of Pull from Eternity for sure
Archangel of Tithes would be a great pillowfort addition.
I agree with Day of the Dragons being too harmful since none of my tokens will come back. Unless I'm willing to trade my tokens for essentially other tokens I'm gonna count this one out.
I'm gonna put some thought into Soul Separator it has some weird potential.
Keeper of Keys is not bad but I have to make it all the way around the table before he becomes effective and that's a lot of turns for people to notice that I'm about to blow my load. Venser, the Sojourner is better imo but I just wonder if Im going to get more than 1 turn out of him.
Saheeli's Artistry is not bad, it's a pretty high cost but if the artifacts are there then it might be worth it to toss one in for the match. I don't see enough value out of the cards in this deck alone to run it for copying my own stuff.
Back from the Brink will be more counterproductive than eternalize, but it may have potential for others. If I could create a Pull from Eternity and Isochron Scepter setup then there could be some huge value out of Back from the Brink
Murder Investigation depends on if I can fins more value vs the others in the deck since it's not a bad choice.
Lastly, I actually already looked at Foundry of the Consuls and felt like it just cost to much to take up another land spot.

Alright...buckle up this is going to be a doozy. Also, i'm going to apologize now for spamming your decklist, but I love the idea of this deck and want to build it myself...buuuut I have some ideas, and I want to see what you think.
First off, I think Pull from Eternity is a must to bring back eternalized and embalmed creatures.
I was wondering about all the life gain cards in your deck. If I were going to keep them, i'm thinking of Crested Sunmare
Day of the Dragons is an interesting card to me, but I could see it backfiring, so meh.
soooo yeah i think that's about it, or all i'm willing to type. Tell me what you think...well, if im not being completely annoying. Either way you made a sweet build, and I hope to make my own version soon!!

Arbor Elf for Birds of Paradise
Tolsimir Wolfblood for Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite
I'd add at least two lands that destroy land. Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge are some examples.
Fragmentize for Naturalize
Lyev Decree for Swords to Plowshares
Wall of Swords for Wall of Omens
Steward of Valeron for Grand Abolisher
Pariah for Kodama's Reach
Brave the Sands for Authority of the Consuls
Martial Law for Ghostly Prison
Selesnya Keyrune for Sol Ring
Druid of the Cowl for Sakura-Tribe Elder
Cathar's Shield for Swiftfoot Boots
Rootborn Defenses for Heroic Intervention
White Sun's Zenith for Storm Herd. This card will win you games.
Sigil of Valor for Shield of the Oversoul
Sylvan Reclamation for Forsake the Worldly
Aura Mutation for Beast Within
Armadillo Cloak for Aura Shards
Here's what I have so far. I'm not done yet but this is a good start. I still need to go deeper into the creatures and add some synergy.

If this is token focused it would be beneficial to put in a token spamming planeswalker or two for constant token play (I recommend at least one is Freyalise for the extra mana ramp at the same time).
Lastly, I know they only have populate 1 but Rootborn Defenses and Druid's Deliverance have really saved my hide on several occasions, especially when paired with Ready / Willing or Dramatic Reversal.

Gravity Well would probably be a good addition, as your deck lacks many ways to interact with flying.

Thanks for your comments Reverie42,
Rule of Law and Eidolon of Rhetoric are fantastic for my mid-game. I don't own these cards yet but will definitely acquire at least one of them. They won't be replacing Fate Unraveler though; you wouldn't believe the dirty looks I get from players using blue when that card hits the table. And it gets even worse when it's joined by Underworld Dreams.
Heliod, God of the Sun is nice alternative to Daxos' token generation but there's just one problem; I have nothing to boost these tokens. They won't benefit from my XP counters. So in that sense, Helios' token ability is a bit underpowered; especially in this configuration.
Skybind is nice, but I don't have that much scary non-enchantment permanents to blink. That's kind of the point :)
