Song of the Dryads Discussion

Propaganda and War Tax are other good fort cards. Song of the Dryads is good, but pushes the budget a bit.

Thank you for your suggestions. Vernal Bloom is a must. Will go in.

I was thinking of adding Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, I just don't know if it's enough impact, but I'll definitely try it out if I find room.

Krosan Tusker and Sylvan Ranger seem kind of weak to warrant an inclusion.

Rude Awakening was another card I was thinking of adding. Definitely must go in.

Garruk Wildspeaker is interesting, but I like Kamahl, Fist of Krosa a lot more. You get the overrun effect and deter boardwipes for just 2 more mana.

Green Sun's Zenith is very good, will add once I find room

Rishkar's Expertise I thought about for a while, I put in Garruk Primal Hunter for a Soul's Magesty type of effect, but Rishkars does seem a lot better. Will add.

Shamanic Revelation is more for a token deck I feel. This deck doesn't go wide. The only time I can see it's use is with Kamahl.

Natural Order is pretty good. I feel like I need more green creatures to get use out of it. That's why I want to add Terastodon or some other big green dude which can be tutored with Natural Order or Green Sun's Zenith.

Song of the Dryads and Beast Within are great, I will add them once I find room.

Regarding the cuts....

Garruk, Primal Hunter for Rishkar's Expertise. Very similar effect to his -3.

From Beyond for Vernal Bloom. Vernal bloom is much more impactful.

Boundless Realms is my FAVORITE CARD of the deck and helps you ramp and thin your deck. Will always be kept.

Seer's Sundial for Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip. Helps me get a forest to the hand and can eventually flip to do more work. Test inclusion

Genesis Hydra for Terastodon. The hydra is nice but I have had some bad experiences during the playtest.

Woodland Bellower for Rude Awakening. Bellower has been underperforming with it's limited creature tutoring.

Genesis Wave is WAY TOO GOOD to be cut. Most of the deck is permanents and this card does SERIOUS work.

Hello, as an Azusa player myself here are some recommendations...

First and foremost I'd play a lot more basic Forests and add Vernal Bloom.

Since you're already playing Exploration, Ramunap Excavator , and such, I'd also play Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Krosan Tusker, and Sylvan Ranger to keep the lands flowing in your hand and avoid having 1 card in hand turn 3 scenarios.

Rude Awakening can be a finisher and when it's not it allows explosive turns with all the mana doublers

Speaking of mana doublers often times Garruk Wildspeaker can be played for free with his +1 ability and allows for an Overrun-type effect the next turn he comes into play, which can be a win con

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is also great in keeping boardwipes in check, or finishing games.

Green Sun's Zenith is just my favorite creature tutor in green

Rishkar's Expertise because the value of this card is huge.

Shamanic Revelation can be quite good in some cases.

Natural Order, i would play that card. It's too good to pass.

And here are some of the best spot removal in green : Krosan Grip, Song of the Dryads, Beast Within.

As for the cuts, my personal choices would be Garruk, Primal Hunter, From Beyond, Boundless Realms, Seer's Sundial, and i would choose between the genesis cards and some of the eldrazi that requires casting. They do not synergize well and my choice would be to cut Genesis Hydra and Genesis Wave.

Hope this helps, all of these recommendations comes from my playtesting, but is still personal since my playgroup is probably different from yours.

Have fun

A fellow Doran player! I've been playing Doran for 5 years now and have tried a few different strategies over the years from voltron-Doran to treekfolk-tribal to Low-Power/High-Toughness synergy. What a versitile and fun commander :)

Some suggestions:

Hey, this looks good, great deck name. The deck description is however very hard to read. Breaking up the mass of white text by linking each card you're describing helps a lot with readability. To do this put double square brackets in front of a card name and close the double square brackets at the end of the card name. Learn more about card and other formatting here scroll down to "Tagging Cards".

This allows viewers to mouseover the blue name of card and get a rollover image of the card or click the card to get more information about it.

You've included a lot of really good cards here, but you've left out a few strong ones. Consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Primal Command
  • Traverse the Ulvenwald
  • Winter's Grasp
  • Lignify
  • Sylvan Advocate

  • Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers
  • Myriad Landscape
  • Haunted Fengraf
  • Dark Depths


Good luck with your deck.

Captain_Shakespeare, thank you for all of your suggestions! Currently at this time I am not looking to make any changes to the build. I'll be sure to keep your recommendations in mind for future updates. As for Shamanic Revelation, it is in this build. I also have 11 cards that are used for draw in the deck. I don't feel it's too necessary to include more. I do run a side board that supports as a removal package. I'll include it in the list at some point in time. It includes the following: Acidic Slime, Beast Within, Chaos Warp, Decimate, Hull Breach, Krosan Grip, Pyroblast, Reclamation Sage, Red Elemental Blast and Song of the Dryads. Nonetheless, thank you for checking out my ARMAGEDDON build. I hope it didn't disappoint. It has been devastating within my playgroup.

feyn_do_alduin, your suggestions have always been much appreciated! You have been very resourceful when I first constructed A Michael Bay Film, Omnath: Age of Explosions! v3. With that being said, I removed such cards as Tireless Tracker, Genesis Wave, Boundless Realms, and Green Sun's Zenith to include my land destruction package. Those are great cards, no doubt! They just didn't fit the flavor of what I was trying to achieve this go around. Thank you again, for all of your help!

Nice deck! I play tested it against my own Mina & Denn deck. I had no idea Manabond was a card. Also didn't realize how crazy sack outlets for you elementals are. I noticed a few things though:

Maybe include a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx? Although your creature count isn't that high, you'd be surprised how nice the few extra mana can be (also more food for you wave of vitriol).

Also, it seems like you have almost no draw outlets. Adding any of Harmonize, Life's Legacy, Shamanic Revelation, Collective Unconscious, Garruk's Packleader, Regal Force, Soul of the Harvest and Tireless Tracker will help you get all the cards you need to win really fast.

You have a ton of really terrifying 'destroy everything' cards, but most of them cost 5+ mana and if you have multiple of them in your hand you I noticed the return on the extras was not the most exciting. Maybe try switching out one or two for cheaper cards like Song of the Dryads or Beast Within? Then you can also cast them for free with Rishkar's Expertise too.

Finally, if you want an extra copy of any elemental in your deck, Flamekin Harbinger is a lot of fun.

Love this deck though. You got some great combos. :D
