Selvala, Heart of the Wilds Discussion
3 hours ago
I got lucky and picked up Selvala, Heart of the Wilds in a booster pack. She is a perfect addition to my casual Multani mighty sorcerer mono green commander deck. In multiplayer games Multani, Maro-Sorcerer often gets huge, 20+ power sometimes! Selvala, Heart of the Wilds will then produce crazy amounts of mana as early as turn 5 or 6, but I don't know how to turn this into a win. It's a good problem to have, but can anyone help me find good budget cards that can fit in there?
I think Hydra Broodmaster is one of the cards that can make use of that amount of mana (can I get 10 hydras on turn 6 please? Oh and make them 10/10 please), but are there other good bombs in green I could add? Or should I focus on protecting Selvala instead? She'll be the first target for removal once she enables so much mana so it may be worth making her hexproof or something else.

Thanks for taking a minute to make suggestions. I agree Celestial Archon is not good, too much cmc. Boon Satyr I'm always on the fence about, I feel like it could be useful, but it honestly never seems to make a difference in the outcome of the game. Vizier of the Menagerie I feel could be useful though, I have a lot of other cards that manipulate the top of my library, Mirri's Guile , Courser of Kruphix , Mul Daya Channelers , Sylvan Library , and if I don't like what I see there, I use a fetch land or something to shuffle the deck.
I'm def going to try and get my hands on a Serra's Sanctum , and maybe a Selvala, Heart of the Wilds though, those seem solid for sure. I'll do some searching and see what I can scrounge up for a lil more ramp. Cheers!~

I would recommend Shamanic Revelation for some top tier draw. Maybe Herald's Horn ? Coat of Arms might be good as a chonky lord. If you want to have a 'secondary' commander, as I'm guessing you're going for the infinite mana combo with Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and Umbral Mantle , Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury might be nice, she also works well just sitting in the deck for ramp and her [+2] makes a Llanowar Elf.

I mean, Strip Mine and Wasteland are staple inclusions in pretty much any deck, but if you really think the manabase is that weak then fair enough.
I suppose the deck really does run too many pillow-fort effects, but, yes, I tend to play in metas with lots of creatures, so I tend to think that having a wipe suite (unless you're playing mono-green or something) is effectively a necessity.
Also, what's wrong with Command Beacon, exactly? I suppose if you're just really looking for lands to axe, fine, but it's not a weak card in and of itself--at least when your commander is better than Daxos.
I also completely forgot that Porphyry Nodes was a card, honestly. Otherwise, it'd be in there.
Your full list of replacements would make it to where we're playing a lot fewer enchantments, but I suppose Daxos isn't that great anyway, so, whatever. I'm honestly not sure if making that deck would qualify Daxos for tier 3, frankly, as it's more the deck than the commander or any synergy he has with it that's any good, but, whatever. I'm at least proud of how the mana curve in that deck is basically perfect, which is something your suggestions mess with slightly, but I suppose that doesn't really matter.
I just built that deck as an experiment, so I don't really care about it too much. Here, on the other hand, is a deck I've actually played extensively and have been tuning ever since I first made it:
Begin The Hymns. It's a Seton, Krosan Protector deck, and when I originally made it and shared it here, he was a very rogue af commander who was tier 4 or 5, but he got moved up to tier 3 after that point. The deck hasn't changed much since then, and I don't think I'm arguing for it to be moved up to tier 2 (the only mono-green commander in tier 2 is Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , and I'm assuming that's because she's draw in addition to ramp), but I would like to point out that Seton is perhaps the fastest mono-green ramp commander in the format. His ability effectively gives every druid in the deck haste (though, many of them have better abilities of their own), making him much faster than Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Omnath, Locus of Mana , and even Selvala (though she's probably still better).
At times, it's practically a storm deck--I've played some very interesting lines with it before. One time, my last opponent almost had me hard-locked by being able to recur Pernicious Deed and Liliana of the Veil with Doubling Season on the board thanks to Muldrotha, the Gravetide , and I believe what happened was I drew and played Green Sun's Zenith , got Eternal Witness , she got back Natural Order , I cast Natural Order getting Grave Sifter to get back all of the druids he'd previously wiped, then, with my remaining mana, I cast Aluren , then went off and killed him that turn (I had Zendikar Resurgent on the battlefield, hence why I had the mana for all that in the first place). I've cast Genesis Wave for 55 on turn 6 before thanks to Gaea's Cradle , Voyaging Satyr , Argothian Elder , and Vitalize . Yes, the deck dies to boardwipes (especially instant-speed ones) and counterspells, but it's surprisingly resilient, and also quite redundant, provided my opponents don't follow up by slamming some stax effect (which they probably would).

Serra's Sanctum , but it's extremely expensive.
Selvala, Heart of the Wilds will ramp you a lot but it might give your opponents some draws, which imo is a risk worth taking.
Nature's Will might be cool

Kamerot so If I play Doubling Season then play Vivien Reid she will have 10 loyalty counters and I could -8 her to get her emblem in one turn right? also would their be any cheaper replacement for Selvala, Heart of the Wilds that isn't Karametra's Acolyte or Priest of Titania

Kamerot what do you think would be the better chose adding Selvala, Heart of the Wilds or Doubling Season I feel it would have a very good synergy with my deck with cards like Avenger of Zendikar , Bane of Progress , Managorger Hydra , Myojin of Life's Web , Nacatl War-Pride , Rampaging Baloths , Scavenging Ooze , Vigor , Beacon of Creation , Garruk Wildspeaker and Vivien Reid . tell me if doubling season would work in all of those cases
