Soul of the Harvest Discussion

Olivvyia on Mono Green

It's a good start. Removal in green is very hard to find so I like the small touches.

However, something about commander is you always want to have some sort of interaction with your general. It's certainly not necessary but with Multani, I think it's more fun. If you get some card draw in your deck, it would work really well with him.

Try Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Collective Unconscious, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Glimpse of Nature, Heartwood Storyteller, Fecundity, Primordial Sage, Regal Force, Rites of Flourishing, Shamanic Revelation, Soul of the Harvest, Triumph of Ferocity or Zendikar Resurgent.

Another important thing in commander is a solid mana base. Running 38 Forests is not all bad but you want some more interaction with your deck. Oran-Rief, the Vastwood and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would go really well in your deck. You might also want to consider a Sol Ring and Gilded Lotus because those are commander staples.

Now, what to cut.

Let's start with creatures. One thing you have to think about when casting any kind of spell in a commander game is, "Is this spell worth the mana cost?" and "Does this spell have any kind of interaction in my deck?".

In my opinion, these are the creatures you need to cut. To the right of each, I will put some substitutes:

Ancient Ooze

Ancient Silverback

Awakener Druid

Bloodbriar

Crocodile of the Crossing

Duskdale Wurm ... Pelakka Wurm

Emperor Crocodile

Nessian Asp

Pathbreaker Wurm ... Nylea, God of the Hunt or Brawn or Thunderfoot Baloth or even Primal Rage

Plated Crusher

Prized Unicorn

Pouncing Cheetah

Quilled Slagwurm

Ridgescale Tusker

Scaled Behemoth

Shoe Tree ... This is illegal in commander.

Skysnare Spider

Woodborn Behemoth

Yavimaya Ancients

Yew Spirit

A lot of the creatures you have just don't have much synergy in your deck. Cut them and try out the other recommendations I've given you thus far.

Other cards to cut with recommendations:

Call of the Herd ... Not really worth it unless you're running a token deck which you are not.

Prey Upon ... It's just not very good in commander. Try Ulvenwald Tracker

Might of Old Krosa ... Meh. Try Giant Growth

Shed Weakness ... Unnecessary. Again. Giant Growth

Genju of the Cedars

Gift of Paradise

Living Terrain

Sheltered Aerie

Trial of Strength

Zendikar's Roil

TL;DR I like your deck. It's a good first time commander deck. Try to cut some of the creatures out that don't have any synergy with it. Card draw would go well with your deck. Mono green always has ramp.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Welcome to the format.

Hey I'm coming over from reddit.

I think first of all, you have some decent ramp and card draw, but I might replace Abzan Beastmaster and Triumph of Ferocity for some other green creature card draw, like Primordial Sage or Soul of the Harvest. Maybe replace Utopia Sprawl with Sakura-Tribe Elder, it's a creature so it has better synergy with your deck, also it's easier to get the extra mana. Archwing Dragon is not the best mana dump by any means and I would replace it with... I dunno there's a lot of really great goodstuff cards at 4 mana, like Rashmi, Eternities Crafter. The "buff my creature" cards are not great, like Boon Satyr or Rancor, as there are much better Anthems, like Beastmaster Ascension.Frost Walker is not a good edh card. At two mana there's Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip. Orcish Lumberjack is sketch, maybe Birds of Paradise. Maybe replace the Trinket Mage and Treasure Mage with Fierce Empath or some sick Haste enablers like Fires of Yavimaya or Hammer of Purphoros. Also a couple more lands couldn't hurt, maybe closer to 36-38. Fire/Ice has a low power for edh, as is lightning bolt. I'm also not the biggest fan of prophetic bolt. Some good removal includes Beast Within and Krosan Grip. I'm also not a fan of Skullclamp in a deck not focused around your own creatures dying. Maybe Mystic Remora or Rhystic Study for cheap card draw. A fun card I like in general is Zendikar Resurgent but it's 7 mana, and usually the turn you drop it, it does nothing. So if you can find a spot in your deck to put it go ahead, but it's low priority.

Starting to look pretty fun :) only other suggestions may be Soul of the Harvest if you are running out of cards and Leatherback Baloth if you feel that maybe you are a turn or two slow, otherwise playtest and let me know how it goes :)

Agreed! Hopefully I can be of some help with this deck too!

I made suggestions thinking we were optimizing for Surge, but if you want to take it out and just make it G/W good stuff then that's your perogative. G/W good stuff with Genesis Wave requires different suggestions than building around Primal Surge.

Either way you go, I like the elf sub theme you have going on. It's definitely one of the strongest ramp engines for EDH. Since you have a fair amount of elves, Elvish Archdruid, Priest of Titania, and Wirewood Symbiote might be worth testing. Not to mention they go very well with the creature draw engines you have (I.e. Soul of the Harvest/Primordial Sage).

As for the top end, I suggest overrun effects, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Void Winnower, and Pathbreaker Ibex.

Swaps I would suggest:

I made sure all the cards I suggested are under $10. I hope was able to help!

Whoa! I didn't even realize this was your deck Triton lol. Probably just go with Crossroads and Ibex then as they will guarantee you a kill if you Primal Surge. I get the casual aspect, but having a 10 mana sorcery as a win-con is in itself casual. 10 mana for the potential of little to no cards is not favorable.

Regarding Odric, you probably don't want to be using cute two card interactions. Just rely on more reliable, self-sustaining options like Concordant Crossroads.

Beastcaller Savant is pretty underwhelming. It's 2 mana for one mana that has a restriction. If you want ramp at 2, then Sylvan Caryatid is a way better option.

Primordial Sage gives you a second Soul of the Harvest effect.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid, or Soul of the Harvest in an effort to emulate Glimpse of Nature.

Though, Nettle Sentinel really makes it shine if you take that route.

Omgawall on Legacy Combo Elves

Assume you have an opening hand with 2 forest, a Heritage Druid, 2 Nettle Sentinel, and whatever other 2 elves you like.

Turn 1. Forest -> Heritage Druid

Turn 2. Forest -> Nettle Sentinel x2. Drop the rest of your hand.

This usually is paired with Glimpse of Nature, but you can get the same effect with something like Lifecrafter's Bestiary or Soul of the Harvest
