Selvala, Heart of the Wilds Discussion

SirFowler on Guilt-Leaf (Needs Suggestions)

I think you should run more graveyard hate, especially towards graveyard recursion decks like Muldrotha. Cards like Withered Wretch, Relic of Progenitus, or even Tormod's Crypt can help out a lot. Something I might suggest to take out would be Winter Orb. It just seems out of place in this deck. You don't have any way to manipulate it to your will. What if someone taps it on your turn? If that happens, only you would get screwed from your own card if someone then untaps it before your next turn. Old, just a suggestion.

You might even need more discard in your deck. Tasigur's Cruelty is a lot better than Tendrils of Despair because late game you just get rid of what you don't need from your graveyard and you don't need to get rid of a creature. Plus, each of your opponents discard 2 instead of just 1 person discards 2.

Also, I think Traverse the Outlands is a little weak in this type of deck. It's a great card sure, but more in like a Selvala, Heart of the Wilds type of deck where power matters. For the most part, you just have low power elves besides a couple of them, so Traverse the Outlands can be kind of a waste if you cast it early. I would suggest replacing it with Perilous Forays. It's great in this type of deck because you're creating multiple elves, which in turn create much more mana down the line.

Hope this helps!

I like it, and I'm currently working on a similar deck for the commander format. May I suggest Selvala, Heart of the Wilds as a solid way to increase the amount of mana you can make to get bigger hydras and buff your commander?

i know it's pricey, but I'd recommend Selvala, Heart of the Wilds

Okay so I have two different decks that might help you. If you want me, once again, to go more in-depth, I certainly will and I would be happy to recommend specific additions. I'll actually be recommending specific cuts right here.

Ajani, Caller of the Pride is not very good. It's suuuper slow and while it does put counters on things, its mana is weird and frankly you're not gonna be casting it on turn 3. It's totally not worth casting after turn 3 and barely worth casting on.

Cathars' Crusade is probably not worth it, especially for the few creatures you're casting AFTER turn 5.

Gyre Sage is so suboptimal, like you're really not putting that mant counters on it early-game, and in the late game it does almost nothing.

You're gonna cast Predator Ooze on like turn 5 or 6. Not. Worth. It.

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is not very good. It's just a mana dork, and yeah eventually it's big mana, but like Gyre Sage, you'll just play your hand and then you're living on topdecks the rest of the game.

Skullbriar, the Walking Grave isn't that good. He'd normally be useful if you were bringing him back from the graveyard, but you're... not.

Octopus Umbra is a decent card but it's not the best in this deck. Not only could you use it better elsewhere, but there are better cards you could put in its place here.

Ghoulcaller Gisa is, once again, not bad here, but there are just better cards- ESPECIALLY in the 5-drop slot!

Bear Umbra is another really good card, but really it could be used better in other places and better things could be put in its place here.

Gift of Immortality is weak in general, and even worse here.

Journey to Eternity  Flip, in the same boat as the Umbras, is good but not great and here it's far from ideal.

Your entire grave recursion package is kinda shoehorned in and would be better in its own deck. Maybe build Muldrotha, the Gravetide?

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is meh, and here it's a genuinely confusing addition. It's a fine card but it's just not a good addition here.

Deathbringer Regent is fine I guess, but once again, this deck is just not the place for it.

So once again, if you want me to drop some specific cards to replace my suggested cuts, I will certainly go into more detail. But for now, happy brewing and have some deck links!

Managorger Hydra is strictly better Taurean Mauler. Also consider Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, though she isn't exactly budget. She'd fund those -cost Hydras beautifully.

Permission to be blunt?

Whoever compiled the new draft of the Tier List (Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]) made some really baffling choices.

The Tier 0 generals are approximately correct (though Tana, the Bloodsower and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds should probably be higher), but everything below that is incredibly messed up.

Circu, Dimir Lobotomist Ghave, Guru of Spores Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker Jodah, Archmage Eternal Kraum, Ludevic's Opus Momir Vig, Simic Visionary Oona, Queen of the Fae Ruric Thar, the Unbowed The Mimeoplasm Tishana, Voice of Thunder Varolz, the Scar-Striped

These should definitely not be Tier 1. Meanwhile, Tier 2 is pretty messed up, and I don't even have enough time to type out the ways, but the short version: all three Niv-Mizzets at the same power??? Ishkanah, Grafwidow at the same power as The Locust God?? Selvala, Explorer Returned at the same power as Zada, Hedron Grinder?? Et cetera. Having played many of these, I can't agree.

I mean, I get what they're trying to do? But I think that abolishing the .5 tiers was a poor decision (since there's clear disparity within each tier) and I think they folded the wrong Tier 2 decks into the new Tier 1 category.
