Sapling of Colfenor Discussion

Sakuma on Jarad Ooze Combo

I think Meren of Clan Nel Toth would be the next in line for possible commanders. I think Jarad is still the superior choice, he is involved in a couple of the win conditions, and most notably Phyrexian Devourer and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord in play is a win condition that does not involve the graveyard and can bypass Rest in Peace effects.

I think Skullbriar, the Walking Grave works better in a deck that makes/transfers/abuses +1 +1 counters, which this deck is not. Sapling of Colfenor is a fairly conditional draw engine, but I just don't feel he brings enough to the table.

Hmm. If you're not casting Jarad a lot, maybe switch the commander? Skullbriar, the Walking Grave, Sapling of Colfenor, etc

Don't forget our sessile brother, Tree of Perdition. A 40 damage/40 defense defender is pretty burly.

The Mimeoplasm could come in as a HUGE treefolk, perhaps even as Doran with a ton of counters.

Thanks Snap157! I honestly never TRIED Sapling of Colfenor I just simply chose Orchard Warden instead when i was building the deck; but its seems life a fair suggestion to playtest.

Best treefolk deck I've seen in a long time! Have you tried Sapling of Colfenor? +1 from me

@JaysomeDecks hmm, I was looking at Golgari legendary creatures, how do you think Varolz, the Scar-Striped would fit into this deck? It lets me exile a creature from my graveyard, pay it's mana cost, and put a number of +1/+1 counters on target creature equal to its power. That seems like it would be helpful if someone uses removal on my creatures or if they just block and die.

I looked at Sapling of Colfenor and it seems like it could be a double edged sword depending on what I draw.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth could be useful, though. Decisions, decisions.

Just a heads up, commanders have to be Legendary Creatures. There are 5 planeswalkers that were printed with a special rule allowing them to function as your commander, such as Teferi, Temporal Archmage, but they are the only ones. If you have a set playgroup, they may be fine with you running him, but since you haven't built it yet and it's your first deck, I'd suggest making a deck you could bring in to any group and be legal to play with.

Some good commanders are:

  • Glissa, the Traitor: Low cost, and first strike deathtouch makes her pretty aggressive.

  • Skullbriar, the Walking Grave: Fun agro commander. Lots of ramp and counters, and then just keep hitting people with him, no matter how often he dies.

  • Meren of Clan Nel Toth: Great reanimator commander. Built around sacrificing your own stuff. Kinda requires you build around her a lot though.

  • Sapling of Colfenor: Indestructible commander that also draws you cards. Pretty solid for a first deck, and you can mostly toss anything in with him.

  • Sisters of Stone Death: They take a lot of mana, but green has a lot of ramp. After that, start stealing everyone's creatures.

I wish you could use any planeswalker as a commander. Though I think there would be a few too many broken decks out there. Again, I've seen people build decks around illegal commanders, and that's fine if everyone playing is ok with that. But usually it's a secondary deck, and it does limit its play. Sorry to point it out, hope this helps.

I haven't made this deck myself, but my most recent commander crush is Sapling of Colfenor, mostly because I'm a sucker for treefolk tribal, but voltron is an option too if that interests you more. Also Doran, the Siege Tower is another interesting pick, but the 3rd color will stretch your budget and he has no wrath protection, so I'd suggest keeping it two color or mono.
