Snow-Covered Forest Discussion

Yesterday on Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, ...

The Snow-Covered Forest in your example would be a Basic Snow Land - Plains Island Swamp Mountain Forest and so could tap for any colour of mana, but the extra land types added to the land won't change its name. Extraplanar Lens only causes your lands to produce bonus mana if they share a name with the imprinted card and doesn't care about other lands that share subtypes with it, so you won't get any bonus mana from your lands named Snow-covered Forest even if they are also Islands.

There is no particular interaction.

Extraplanar Lens cares about the name of the imprinted card. If you've imprinted Snow-Covered Island on it, then whenever you tap a land specifically named Snow-Covered Island for mana, you will get an additional mana.

Dryad of the Ilysian Grove gives your lands every basic land type in addition to their other types, but it doesn't change their names. Snow-Covered Forest will be a Plains Island Swamp Mountain Forest, but it is still named Snow-Covered Forest. Since it doesn't share a name with the card imprinted on Extraplanar Lens, it does not tap for extra mana.

Even if you imprinted a basic Forest, the Snow-Covered Forest would not tap for additional mana, because names are not the same.

How would the interaction between snow-covered lands that are not affected by Extraplanar Lens and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove work? For example Extraplanar Lens is paired with a Snow-Covered Island and then Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is played with Snow-Covered Forest on the battlefield. Would the Snow-Covered Forest also tap for an additional mana?

When playing Field of the Dead, I recommend playing with at least one Snow Covered Basic for each type available. Field cares about different names and Forest and Snow-Covered Forest are both basics with different names. Makes it easier to enable field fast with no real downside.

I'm a big advocate of adding an elf package to most green decks. Priest of Titania is just such a powerful dork and Carpet of Flowers , Staff of Domination and Umbral Mantle are excellent at cranking mana out if you got dorks that net positive. Had to edit my comment cause multimedia already gave great advice

Have you tried Dead of Winter as a boardwipe? It's almost the same with Toxic Deluge , and more likely than not, your opponents doesn't have snow creatures.

Replacing your basic lands to Snow-Covered Forest s, Snow-Covered Plains and Snow-Covered Swamp s will increase the number of -X/-X counters.

Hey, don't see very many Nemata decks.

Consider building around the idea of making infinite green mana? With infinite green mana + Nemata + Fecundity you can draw your deck since Nemata is a mana sink and a sac outlet. Blasting Station can be a win condition with infinite tokens from Nemata without needing to attack. Temur Sabertooth also can be a win condition without needing to attack or without Nemata. Sabertooth is a good card when you can make a lot of green mana.

Cards to consider adding:

Equip Mantle to Selvala/Marwyn/Joiner to make infinite green mana. Guardian + Sabertooth + Selvala/Marwyn/Joiner is another infinite green mana combo and Guardian is pump for tokens. The idea is to make infinite green mana and with Fecundity + Nemata draw your deck until you find Station or a card that can cheat Station onto the battlefield.

An option for a win condition with infinite green mana without Nemata is Sabertooth + Acidic Slime to destroy all your opponents lands and mana rocks. Sabertooth is good with Hydra since Hydra can be a repeatable way to cheat an enchantment or artifact onto the battlefield. Hydra is like Wave, but is a creature which is easier to tutor for/recur then Wave.

Force is a very good instant removal spell for green in Commander. Snow-Covered Forest are better with Extraplanar Lens because your opponents have to have a Snow-Covered Forest on the battlefield to get the ramp bonus. A normal Forest won't give them the bonus and it's much more likely that your opponents have a Forest and not a Snow-Covered Forest.

I offer more advice, good luck with your deck.
