Sapling of Colfenor Discussion

RedJokr on Walls!!!

Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper is necessary since it opens you up to lifegain. Indomitable Ancients is a no-brainer. Tree of Perdition is hilarious. Sapling of Colfenor is really nice for what it does.

Treefolk Harbinger.

Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa.

Tree of Redemption.

Behind the Scenes.

Oathsworn Giant.

Wakestone Gargoyle.

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice.

Anguished Unmaking, Swords to Plowshares, Putrefy, Krosan Grip, etc are necessary removal. There's a lot you can add if you don't focus it into being Wall tribal. I would want to fully utilize Doran.

As Grunyarth said, both Yoked Ox and Tasseled Dromedary are great.In my own Doran deck (Doran's Gonna Get Your Head Kicked In) I play both of them, and also Disowned Ancestor, Lagonna-Band Trailblazer and Nyx-Fleece Ram.

Although similar, I think Grizzled Leotau is not as good as the rest because it's mana cost is pretty specific, but it's nice too.

I don't think Sapling of Colfenor is very useful because there are about 25 other creatures in your deck so once in 4 turns, you gain about 3 life and draw a card. Without this ability, it's "just" a 5/5 indestructible, but when you practically can cast a 4/4 in turn 1, sapling is quite useless.

Rhox Faithmender is awesome.

Hey PartyJ

Ik heb gekeken naar je suggestions en Dragonlord Dromoka en Oathsworn Giant weer toegevoegd. Ik heb letterlijk het hele lijstje al gespeeld, met uitzondering van Guiltfeeder en het was het allemaal net niet :(

Sapling of Colfenor is wel erg goed, dus dat is ook een twijfelaartje :)

This deck definitely needs more walls (i.e. Compost Wall). Their higher toughnesses can gain a lot of life off of Sapling of Colfenor.

Congratulations on building your first commander deck! While I know it isn't a very exciting suggestion, I would recommend adding in a lot more ramp. Even though it might not seem like it, 3.55 is a relatively high average cmc and since you are in green, you should take advantage of all the amazing ramp that it has! In particular, I would recommend adding Farseek, Kodama's Reach, Skyshroud Claim, Deathcap Cultivator, Font of Fertility and a Sol Ring to get started. This will help your deck be faster and more consistent! Another area where your deck seems to be lacking is in the area of card draw. While you aren't in blue, black and green have a lot of card advantage that synergize with your enchantment theme! I would start by including Phyrexian Arena, Enchantress's Presence, Necropotence, Abzan Charm and go from there! There are also a few cards in your deck that should be taken out, simply because they are either bad or just underwhelming. While these cards might be fine in standard or modern, they are just not up to par for commander. This includes cards like Mark of the Vampire, Sunbound, Verdant Haven, Thoughtseize and Goldenhide Ox. I would also add in some more board wipes and removal since you are in black and white. This might include cards like Wrath of God, Merciless Eviction, Utter End, Path to Exile, Hero's Downfall and Martial Coup. Lastly, I would add in a few more cards that reward you for having enchantments and creatures with high toughness. Stuff like Daxos the Returned, Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper, Kor Spiritdancer and Sapling of Colfenor all seem like they would be a perfect fit for your deck! Good luck!

Seeing as most control decks have 1-4 win conditions, while we have 8 (ignoring Bontu and Oketra), I don't think it's necessarily a problem. Even if they do nothing, they're still an upgrade from Darksteel Myr (which doesn't work with Porphyry Nodes).

That said, we did pine for a faster way to close out games against combo. Sapling of Colfenor could be help since having 4 indestructibles is required to consistently beat down with Oketra (and we're restricted to 3 due to legend rule). I'm not sure what else we can do... We did well against any creature decks, of course. More importantly, we'll never be better than a tier 3 deck as long as Path to Exile and Dismember are some of the most played removal in Modern.
