Scattered Groves Discussion

Calebhowe on Champion of Rhonas Playtester

hi this looks like an interesting deck idea. I would consider adding Prowling Serpopard to help against control decks and since you are not running any revolt cards I would recommend trading your evolving wilds for other lands like adding a Fortified Village or Scattered Groves and I would also recommend Oketra's Monument to lower the cost of your angels and give you chump blockers to hold you out so you can meld your angels

Thanks for the suggestions. I made some revisions. I agree with Nissa, Voice of Zendikar. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is a little out of my price range right now but if I get him I'll heavily consider adding him. Tireless Tracker doesn't interact with Eldrazi Displacer very well and I already have a lot of 3 drops so he won't be making it in. Restoration Specialist was included to pull Anointed Procession from the graveyard. Since I was running Vessel of Nascency and Grapple with the Past, I thought Anointed Procession may get pushed to the graveyard so I wanted a way to get it back. I've rethought my position on Vessel of Nascency and Grapple with the Past and decided to drop them in favor of a more direct draw approach from clue tokens and perhaps Benefaction of Rhonas. Greenwarden of Murasa can do late game graveyard pulls if necessary.

I've added Traverse the Ulvenwald to help with land in the early game. In mid-game I'm thinking Delirium will kick in with the healthy mix of card types available. Scattered Groves can be cycled to the graveyard, Benefaction of Rhonas will probably add a card type or two through its effect, plus it is a sorcery, sac'ing From Beyond to search for Eldrazi Displacer, Eyeless Watcher or Brood Monitor will give me an enchantment. No doubt I'll have some creatures in the graveyard, perhaps the Walking Ballista or one of the Panharmonicons for artifact.

The curve looks better now too with clue tokens and cycle lands considered.

Still playtesting though. I will probably revise again soon.

I took my cat deck, Cat Fight!, to FNM and Saturday Showdown. I don't know why I didn't think of little Nissa Nissa, Voice of Zendikar for your deck. She works perfectly with the token theme, and she has her awesome +1/+1 counters for all your creatures. I was having a similar problem getting Ajani Unyielding out of my hand due to his cost; I lost many games with him still in my hand.

Also Attune with Aether works better with the Longtusk Cub than Aether Hub; one Hub on the battlefield does not help pump Cub. Attune is effectively a tapped land of a color of your choosing, but it gives you another play on turn one beside Sacred Cat and enough energy to pump the Cub. I'm looking to get a playset of Scattered Groves to throw into my deck to help with my mana-fixing.

I see you have Hunt the Weak in the sideboard. Consider replacing it with Cartouche of Strength for one less CMC. I don't think there is any functional difference between the enchantment's +1/+1 or another counter, and the Cartouche gives trample.

Four Amonkhet cards have made the cut. Sheltered Thicket and Scattered Groves for more fixing, flexibility and Crucible of Worlds synergy (and to make this deck even more bitterly vulnerable to Blood Moon/Back to Basics). Sandwurm Convergence because duh (yeah, I know it's not that good, but it's replacing Blind Obedience, which was pretty low impact in this deck). Also, Samut, Voice of Dissent came late onto my radar and goddamn what a house! The untap ability doesn't have a lot of synergy aside from combat tricks, but she's another haste enabler, a big butt, and a great analog for Siona Atreides, everyone's favorite voice of dissent!

16 lands seems a little low. If you're that concerned about drawing into dead cards, I recommend playsets of the bicycle lands in place of the Borderposts (Irrigated Farmland and Scattered Groves specifically)

Emzed on Gaddock Teeg Competitive Hatebear Combo

Okay, i overlooked that you don't have a win condition in creature form, such as Triskelion or Acidic Slime. It's easier for decks with access to black cards like Blood Artist. Nevertheless, it's possible under the right circumstances:
With Protean Hulk or Boonweaver Giant plus Mirror Entity serving as a sac outlet, you are able to assemble Reveillark, Karmic Guide and Saffi Eriksdotter. At this point, you have access to any creature in your deck. If Academy Rector is still available, you can now simply go for Living Plane plus Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite (just get rid of Living Plane again before you let the next Mirror Entity trigger resolve).
If the Rector is exiled however, you need one of the following cards to win: Strip Mine (combines with Sun Titan or Renegade Rallier to kill all the lands, Qasali Pridemage or Angel of Serenity deal with other mana scources), Beast Within (You need mana for this: Sylvan Safekeeper can sacrifice lands, then Titan/Rallier return them untapped to generate mana. Now use Eternal Witness plus Beast Within to blow up the world and clean up the tokens with Fiend Hunter), Horizon Canopy/Scattered Groves (generate mana with Sylvan Safekeeper like before. Canopy can be reused with Titan/Rallier to draw the deck, whereas Groves requires Eternal Witness. With your deck in hand and a nice amount of mana, you simply loop Reveillark until you run out of Mirror Entity activations, then cast Blasting Station and win that way).

On a different note, i noticed you are running Dosan the Falling Leaf, but not Grand Abolisher. Is that a conscious choice or was the Abolisher simply not on your radar?

Your deck is almost purrfect, but it needs some improvements before its truly pawesome.

First, I think 26 lands is to much for a aggro deck. i think around 23 should be good. (maybe some Scattered Groves, Fortified Village, Canopy Vista for betting fixing)

I recommend removing Skywhaler's Shot and adding some Collective Effort.(I have one)

I can give you 3 Metallic Mimic, and i recommend getting a forth one. Its basically a cat that buffs cats but isn't really a cat.

If you want some less budgetty upgrades you can add some Ajani Unyielding. The best furry ever. or Oketra the True who is technically a cat, but also a great attacker that creates creatures.

Make a Stand is a great card for protecting the precious kitties.

Nature's Way is great removal against aggro and it has a picture of a angry kitty on it, Cast Out is just good, Declaration in Stone and Immolating Glare.

for sideboard I recommend. 4 Watchers of the Dead ,3 Authority of the Consuls , 2 Gryff's Boon ,2 Fumigate and 4 Manglehorn
