Sapling of Colfenor Discussion

Eruyaean on Treefolk Tribal

Thanks for the Feedback! I will try to include some of those asap.

I'm not so sure whether or not i want to include Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper, but that's probably just a personal preference whether or not to stay 100% in Tribe.

As For the Maelstrom Pulse.... i really wasn't thinking about that. Wow. Might have a use against Token heavy Decks though. A bit more Card draw is great i guess, though the commander has some of that as well.

Regarding Behind the Scenes and Brave the Sands: Both are great cards. I don't plan on swapping out Sapling of Colfenor for Doran, the Siege Tower, so unfortunately they stay off Limit.

Uril, the Miststalker Can be strong, fun and easy on the wallet.

Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief Is a super neat general with removal, plus pump. Mana intensive though.

Kemba, Kha Regent Now kemba can do lots of really funny stuff. Lifegain/Token Army and one of the more powerful artifact/enchantment colors.

Omnath, Locus of Mana A strange kind of voltron, but you wanted fun. He can do voltron in a less traditional way, but he can do it.

Geist of Saint Traft Voltron that makes angels everywhere.

Lazav, Dimir Mastermind OOOooh boy lazav, not your usual guy. But turning him in to "Lazav, the Ceaseless Hunger" or "Lazav, the stormtide leviathan" it really just depends of your opponents, sky's the limit.

Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts I mean things can't block her, and your opponents will second guess attacking you. It can be fun and strong.

Sisters of Stone Death The usual thing people do with her, is gorgon tribal... Why do that when you can swing, steal stuff, and abuse your giant creature? This one is pretty mana intensive, good thing she's got green.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped He takes a little bit of fandiddling with your graveyard and deck, but I've been told he can be fun and rewarding.

Tajic, Blade of the Legion If you like pissing your opponents off by constantly using board wipes this is the man to play, or Zurgo Helmsmasher maybe even Sapling of Colfenor just make sure to use Worldslayer in any of the 3

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

carpecanum on The Ents Go Marching

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.

Icbrgr on Trees.... why did it have to be trees...

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

octopimp on Scarred

@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.
