Necro on Selvala the lifelink queen

4 days ago

I missing Souls Sisters here Soul Warden Soul's Attendant Suture Priest Essence Warden. When you play creature token, you gain life. What about Mimic Vat ??

As some protection, try use Riot Control and Blunt the Assault. Thanks to your general is possible to play it.

I missing two cards with potencial : Paradox Engine and Phyrexian Processor.

If you play Archangel of Thune, why not second half of this combo Spike Feeder.

Try Aura Shards for cleaning table with your tokens.

And for your token production? Oketra´s Monument. If you have too much tokens, try Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

And what discard ?? Pearl Medallion Mind's Eye Dromoka Monument Seasons Past The Mending of Dominaria

Thanks for all the suggestions capshanks01

Edric, Spymaster of Trest has it's own deck and I don't have enough unblockable / evasion Maybe  Bident of Thassa because it  won't help my opponents.

Cutting cards like Avenger of Zendikar Myr Battlesphere Hornet Queen seems like a bad idea because they give me many experience counters and/or blockers. But worst for me seems to get less experience counters.

Cobra Trap is 1 mana most of the games

Deadeye Navigator can abuse most of my ETB's like the high cmc token makers.  Getting four Myr Tokens for just 1{U} seems pretty solid.  Or two cards with Mulldrifter

Fertilid was cut in my last deck change. Too slow,  too much mana. Getting two lands for 7 or 1 for 5 mana is just not good. Even if it's a creature. And if I have nothing to do with ezuri than putting counters on fertilid something went wrong.

Fauna Shaman discarding doesn't seem that good without recursion. And getting a creature is good  Protean Hulk or  Sage of Hours but revealing is a huge downside in my opinion.

Fungal Sprouting looks good, but I don't think 4mana for most times 1-3 Saproling is that great.  Also it is sorcery speed, that can be very slow.  And not sure when to cast.  First mainphase I will get less counters because ezuri hasn't put counters on something yet. Second mainphase I will get more saprolings because Ezuri could put something before this card.  But the amount he puts on a creature is lower. (I have this Problem with many cards in this deck to be honest)

Wirewood Symbiote I don't run that many elves...maybe okay to run.

Spike Feeder doesn't seem useful. Getting life instead of smacking faces/killing People


There is nearly no targeted removal, you are right.  I just need a day of and rebuilt this deck completly :( But takes time:D

Acidic Slime

Trygon Predator

Scavenging Ooze

That's all. I see the Problem, but bounce isn't the answer.

Broodhatch Nantuko I wanted a second morph,  so my playgroup always knows what's under the morph. And even getting only 2+ tokens out seems okay.

Glimmer of Genius is Instant speed, seeing up to 4 cards isn't bad. And if you don't scry away, the cards you get are good. And I may play an  Aether Hub so it may be more useful.  What draw spells would you play rather?

Fact or Fiction Instant speed, worst case getting only one card I really need, with the option to get  up to 5 cards. (Since politcs is a thing in my group there is a high chance of getting 4 or even 5 cards). Same for here,  what would you play rather? Needs to be instant!

Lightning Greaves yep had this Problem, thought of Neurok Stealthsuit because for {U}{U} it's Instant and I can remove it, by putting it on anything Else

Panharmonicon won't be in here.  It's an really great card,  but not in this deck.


Now to the more positive part :D

Sakura-Tribe Scout seems good, especially if I build more draw into this deck.

Snake Basket never heard of this card before.  Seems pretty solid  in my opinion!

Spellskite oh hell yes I need this card.

Glen Elendra Archmage if I get one, I totally play this wonderful piece of cardboard.

Inkmoth Nexus would be solid, but Infect isn't really my strategy. Blighted Agent has the unblockable thing, that's why he is in. If I ever trade an Inkmoth, he will have a place in this deck.

Shrieking Drake at first I thought this card is weak.  Than I realized that he can bounce himself  (I assume that's what you wanted to say) :D getting experience for just {U} seems broken. I need this immediatly! And if bounce one of my high cmc token dudes to replay them? Even better.

All in all I need to build this deck from zero, and I need to be sure what tactic I'm playing. I need to get cards that I don't have right now. That takes time/money. And then I need time to brew. You can always suggest more, I try to answer fast. But it while take a while to get everything, but I'll Update as soon as I can!

Thanks a Lot for all this help

I see that you usea a lot of expensive spells, sure they are cool but you need even more mana ramp, you can try Fertilid Sakura-Tribe Scout and for explosive tokens (experience counters) "maybe" Snake Basket or Fungal Sprouting Sure they are risky to use, but if you do not use counter spells I guess your game environment does not have much creature hate :D also if you are using Coiling Oracle the Wirewood Symbiote is a must! for card draw you can try the new: Beast Whisperer, imagine cast like 3 times in a row the Shrieking Drake X3 experience counters and cards! the sylvan library is a amazing addition..

cards to considerate: Spike Feeder gain lost of life, but is situational what you want is to attack. Fauna Shaman Throw your manadorks in late game and help you look for the hulk Spellskite good blocker at the beginning and help protect your ezuri Glen Elendra Archmage the philosophy of this deck is to win with fast and strong punches, but you need to protect your board while you build the experience counters, this car is expensive $ but it's worth every penny, it can make you win the game. Inkmoth Nexus infect support Edric, Spymaster of Trest maybe for card draw?

I don't see spot removal you can try some creatures whit bounce effect to buy time and build experience counters. AEther Adept, Man-o'-War Sidisi's Faithful even Venser, Shaper Savant

What to cut and why:

all the cards that cost more that five mana...just because they are to slow and predictable (except) Cyclonic Rift , at least cobra trap and protean hulk look's fun.

Lightning Greaves: amazing card but the shroud prevent you from putting counters on the equipped creature.

Glimmer of Genius: lot's of better card draw out there, the same to Fact or Fiction.¯_(?)_/¯

Phanharmonicon: cool card!! but slow :(

Broodhatch Nantuko: I do not feel that it is effective enough.

I'm surpried you don't have the infinite token/life combo with Spike Feeder + Archangel of Thune.

I would also recommend Selvala, Explorer Returned, It's ability to ramp and gain life I find is often underrated.

A more fun/casual lifegain card is Celestial Mantle.

so Your recommendation is to go more on the life side of the deck. And while I will add the Spike Feeder Since that's a cheep easy combo, I was thinking of getting rid of most of lifelink cards, I was thinking of removing: Loxodon Hierarch and Celestial Mantle, also removing some of the other redundant/less useful cards such as Overrun and Palisade Giant.

the cards I was planning on adding would help deck ramp/control Elfhame Sanctuary, Sylvan Library*,Seedborn Muse,Azusa, Lost but Seeking,Aura Shards. Those cards also total about how much I was planning on spending. I would like for you to recommend other Lifelink cards, So I can decided whether to go Lifelink or go ahead with more ramp/control.

Sylvan Library is a card that I'm sure I want for the deck.

Archangel of thune is a really good car to use with Spike Feeder I also suggest using Aetherflux Reservoir as a win condition.

Speaking of reservoir Children of Korlis is a great card to use with the reservoir you can pay 50 life to deal 50 sacrifice the children to gain that life back to do it again

Hey Homelessguy o/.

Yeah i really like Selvala a lot. Unfortunately I can't really add Spike Feeder because we have a no infinites rule. I had Umbral Mantle for a few games and it got pretty degenerate in a round of five, so I removed it again.

Children of Korlis sounds great though! I might be wrong but isn't Selvalas Parley a "mana ability"? If it isn't Illusionist's Bracers sound good too. :)
