Desti702 on Rumble in the Jungle

Jagged-Scar Archers performed quite well shooting down Kaalia of the Vast last night, so it remains in the deck for now. But I strongly consider Fierce Empath instead of Lys Alana Huntmaster. Huntmaster is a bit slow and you paint a huge target on your back by overextending to the board. Fierce Empath on the other hand gives you a good draw for next turn and with fierce into Woodland Bellower you are even able to tutor for a relevant elf. I am going to playtest with Silklash Spider but at that point I am not sure which card I should cut

Fierce Empath wouldn't be bad, actually. It gets 3 very relevant creatures in your list. You might consider Woodfall Primus as another target.

If flyers are major players in your meta, you might take a look at Silklash Spider or Tornado Elemental as well. I might be talking myself into running Empath now...

Oh man, I don't even know what to say. I've got a Gitrog in the works, but besides a Crucible of Worlds, I can't even go near this budget with ideas.

Apocalypse Demon is a great 1v1 response to flyers for me. Silklash Spider is a good mass removal, especially with so much mana accessible. If you have some snow covered land laying around, maybe Whiteout? My budget solution for at least slowing down the flyers in my meta is Watcher in the Web with deathtouch attached.

What I am doing that works though, the nastiest control aspect in my deck, is Tainted AEther. I love this in Gitrog for controlling things once I'm set up, or close to set up.

Nice recomendations Lebleu1806 thanks! yeah actually Iam already using the Trinketmage, Hope of Ghirapur is interesting option, is not a counter but can work, I will update the list after some playtest Iam thinking in add Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and add one more land I'm still reluctant to use elves, but I've noticed that I have to accelerate the mana a Lot! What do you think about Wash Out and Equilibrium? the deck need's more removal and control,Curse of the Swine is good but is a double edge sword another card that Iam thinking isCrawlspace maybe Iam going to far but my meta is so agressive, another card not so good but surprisingly effective wasSilklash Spider

if you're still looking for some more win cons, depending ho many people in your play group play Green Bellowing Tanglewurm might be a good add. Also Predatory Focus to break through defenses. If you find yourself having flying troubles Sandwurm Convergence and Silklash Spider.

Revedeka on Totonka's Mono Green Defenders

Hey, I saw you comment on my deck (Tetsuko & Doran's Assault Formation!), and I'd love to see if I can give you any tips for this deck.

As you already said in your description for this deck, Arcades, the Strategist might be a very good card for this deck, especially if you like control decks. White-Green-Blue is a very nice color combination for a control deck, and the defender creatures you are running just add onto that. Furthermore, this deck as it is now can only make your creatures with defender attack if you happen to draw Assault Formation, which means there are gonna be some games were you won't be able to get it. However, you can play around this with your big creatures.

Arcades, the Strategist also lets you draw more cards, which together with Lead the Stampede and your creatures that make mana allow you to build up a very strong board, However, you do already have Soul of the Harvest, which kinda does the same, but just costs 2 more. For that reason, even if you don't play Arcades, the Strategist, I really like your Lead the Stampedes, If you want to stay mono green you could even play something like Commune with Nature to fetch another creature.

If you're wondering what kind of creatures with defender you get access to when also going into blue and white, here are some nice options: Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip can work with your mana ramping, Wall of Frost, Wall of Denial, Stalwart Shield-Bearers, Wall of Omens I really love this card together with your Carven Caryatid and Soul of the Harvest (and Arcades, the Strategist if you want to run it) since it just make you fly through your deck, Dragon's Eye Sentry, Perimeter Captain, and you get access to Rolling Stone, however between Assualt Formation and Arcades, the Strategist, you wont need it. Also you get access to some metagame staples like Path to Exile.

Perhaps a Tower Defense or Shape the Sands (or Aegis of the Heavens (its a new m19 card so tappedout wont let me link it) when playing white) could also make this deck more explosive if you want to go that route, but since you are not reliant on making your creatures with defender attack, Carnage Tyrant is a nice beater, when going into white you also get access to angels which are great late game creatures, you might even think about running card with in their mana costs, like Entreat the Angels, Quarantine Field, Secure the Wastes, Animist's Awakening, Chord of Calling, Enshrined Memories, Genesis Wave, Nissa, Steward of Elements.

Finally, I don't really like Trolls of Tel-Jilad, Terastodon, and Naya Panorama since they don't really do much. I would also up your land count to at least 20, even with all the mana acceleration. Maybe even 22-24. As for your current maybeboard, I like the Axebane Guardian, and all the other card are also good beaters except for Silklash Spider, Prey Upon your defender creatures have no power, even with Assault Formation, not 100% sure on this interaction though, and Elixir of Immortality, If you want lifegain, perhaps a Jaddi Offshoot is better?

I hope this helps you a little! I like the deck and its versatility a lot!

LOL. Love it. +1
Some of these spiders are just mean. Silklash Spider is really sweet repeatable flyer protection, and Obelisk Spider is superb on several levels (effectively one extra damage, the one extra sticks, life gain, synergy with wither/infect). I'd love to watch a token swarm deck swing in for its massively wide attack, meet Arachnogenesis coming in, and die to its own win condition on the next turn. The one-way Fog effect alone is already great. :-)
