Soul of the Harvest Discussion

Angry_Potatoes on Rishkar Peema Renegade - JLK l Game Knights #4

Scavenging Ooze seems like an auto-include in any green deck, but in a deck where +1/+1 counters matter? Bro, why is it not in here? I'm also surprised that you don't have Soul of the Harvest; this is one of my go-to green baddies in decks with lots of smaller creatures. Since this deck wants to abuse stuff like Paradox Engine, Soul can keep refueling you with creatures as your engine goes off.

A lesser-known creature to consider would be Bloodspore Thrinax; get a single counter on him, either with devour or some other ability, and all your creatures get free counters on etb. Cytoplast Root-Kin plays a similar role with graft, and Durable Handicraft is like a janky green version of extort, only with +1/+1 counters instead of life drain.

muffpuncher I was also considering getting rid of Boundless Realms, as it is just overkill in this deck and the new Traverse the Outlands is better suited for this deck. If I pull both Boundless Realms and Polukranos, World Eater, I would have room for both Staff of Domination and Soul of the Harvest.

Some cards that come to mind:

Magus of the Library Can alternate between ramp and card draw.

Gyre Sage Escalating ramp.

Managorger Hydra If it drops early, it grows really fast. Worst case scenario is it will eat a removal spell.

Nissa, Voice of Zendikar The +1 isn't great, but she is cheap for CMC and both of her minus abilities are very nice.

Triumph of Ferocity More card draw.

Creeping Renaissance Recursion

Bow of Nylea For the utility.

Triumph of the Hordes This one may not be as good without many token generators in your deck, but it can be a game finisher.

Soul of the Harvest More card draw.

Archetype of Endurance More protection, and more importantly it is blanket protection.

Shamanic Revelation With this deck there is a very good chance this is better than Harmonize even if it is 1 more mana.

Predator Ooze Much like the Managorger, if this drops early, it will cause headaches for your opponents.

Joraga Treespeaker Takes a bit of growing, but will be better than the other 1-drop mana dorks. Can even make your land fetching elves tap for mana if you invest enough in it.

Elvish Harbinger A mana dork who can pull another mana dork to the top of the deck.

Seasons Past Recursion

As for what I would cut, it would depend on which cards I suggested that you added. Mana dorks would replace lesser mana dorks, Archetype of Endurance would replace a protection equipment, etc.

That said, I would agree with the suggestion to switch to Selvala, Explorer Returned, or better yet Animar, Soul of Elements. I use Animar for my Eldrazi deck, and every now and then I cast 3-4 Eldrazi in a turn for free. My previous commander for Eldrazi was Radha, Heir to Keld as she put a mana dork in my command zone and that seemed like a good idea.

This deck totally needs a Concordant Crossroads; however, I do not own one at this time. I will add it to the list for my next card order.

I was having a hard time deciding between Garruk's Packleader and Soul of the Harvest. Ultimately, I went with Garruk's Packleader because it cost one less to cast. This created a smoother mana curve and allows the potential for the card draw trigger one turn earlier.

Staff of Domination is a great idea and I have an extra copy. Just not sure what to pull for it. Any suggestions muffpuncher?

Cool deck man. May I suggest adding Soul of the Harvest and Staff of Domination to add to the combo/draw of the deck. Also Concordant Crossroads makes any huge creature deck a lot stronger, but the effect is global so don't forget about that double edged sword.

Anyways solid list I like it a lot.

multimedia on Ezuri's Fury (Budget)

Thanks for the upvote, Puzzlemayor.

Adding some bigger creatures to use all the mana on is an option, but I prefer to use all the extra mana to activate Ezuri's overrun ability multiple times. Expanding on what Amyas said, since Ezuri is the Commander here I have access to him all the time from the Command Zone. Even when he dies he just goes back to the Command Zone and I can play him again. Having some big win condition creatures can disrupt when I'm trying to set up Elves for Ezuri. That being said, I'm playing three big creatures: Soul of the Harvest, Regal Force and Thunderfoot Baloth, but they're all budget and have great interaction with Elves or Ezuri.

Hey Kamerot, thanks for the suggestions! I added in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to the mainboard. Your card advantage cards are really good, but I usually am trying to kill players at 6-7 mana when I cast Kamahl, Fist of Krosa. I may add Soul of the Harvest to the mainboard though. I do really really like Nacatl War-Pride!

Kamerot on Budget Kamahl, Fist of Krosa

Hey there fellow Kamahl player! A few suggestions for your deck to help out.

Wild Beastmaster and/or Cultivator of Blades - These 2 let you essentially double whatever you do with kamahl for no mana, leaving some extra mana open for instants, or to use during your second mainphase

Xantid Swarm and Nature's Will - These help lock out opponents, especially during your second mainphase and leaves you free to cast whatever you want.

Rishkar's Expertise - Upgraded version of Soul's Majesty. Casting things for free is always fun.

If your budget allows for it, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a HUGE mana boost.

Soul of the Harvest, Primordial Sage, and Garruk's Packleader - All of these give you card advantage while you giving you decent bodies to trample with.

Nacatl War-Pride - This is personally one of my favorite cards and is amazing with Kamahl. You can turn their lands into creatures and they either have to block and lose lands, or you get a bunch of unblockable 3/3's that you can pump up with kamahl for ridiculous damage.

Another budget pending card would be Garruk, Primal Hunter - He's the best planeswalker to pair with kamahl in my opinion. pumps out 3/3's for his +1, gets you card advantage, and makes 6/6's for his ultimate.

It's looking great for an awesome budget, If you ever want to chat Kamahl, hit me up. Here's a link to my deck for more inspiration: Om nom Trample. Good luck!
