Sprout Swarm Discussion

PreZchoICE1 on FUN Cube Cards?

1 month ago

colorless: Junktroller , Junk Diver

red: Thieves' Auction , Wheel of Fortune

green: Weird Harvest , Sprout Swarm

white: Reverse Damage , Weathered Wayfarer

black: Choice of Damnations , Erebos, God of the Dead

blue: Show and Tell , Skyscribing

some cards you may or may not have been thinking of to spice up your cube.

I have a 1200 card singleton cube that runs around 200 dual land/strip mine/ghost quarter/wasteland. It makes it a lot of fun for your players simply because it gives them endless options.

This is a nice deck. Have you played it competitively?

I like Sprout Swarm . You can just use it at the end of your opponents turn including its buyback.

Cathars' Crusade is pretty tight, i went with Collective Blessing just because the math is easier - but if you're running Corpsejack Menace the counters will stack up fast!

Sprout Swarm will pay for itself, quickly - the saprolings it creates can be used immediately to pay for additional, buyback'd, castings with convoke. if you are running Parallel Lives things will get crazy, quickly, and Ashnod's Altar helps you squeeze additional mana out of the little fungi, too.

i guess in terms of keeping the core, i'd make the following additions:

+2 Parallel Lives +1 Collective Blessing +1 Ashnod's Altar +1 Sprout Swarm +3 Diabolic Tutor +1 Increasing Ambition

backed up by the following cuts:

-2 to your mana base (i feel the base is a little larger than necessary, and could use Opulent Palace as mentioned in 1st post)-1 Fecundity -2 Avacyn's Pilgrim -4 Llanowar Elves

Creeping Renaissance Eternal Witness Reviving Melody are all also pretty good - you'll probably want some way to recur important creatures/enchantments (Pentavus /gravepact)

i feel like the best Magic decks have a chance to cast their spells and win; to that end, i'd change the mana base to 4 Opulent Palace , 2-4 Terramorphic Expanse /Evolving Wilds , a plains, 10 Forest and 9-10 Swamp


next up, you are close to having a lot of fun with this deck, and i don't want to make it any less fun, but why not add a copy each of Primal Vigor , Doubling Season , and Parallel Lives ? and maybe a Corpsejack Menace ?

you could also consider Ashnod's Altar and a Sprout Swarm

last but not least, you need to find so many pieces. i'd recommend Diabolic Tutor and/or Increasing Ambition , both in multiples.

not exactly sure how i'd cut to make room, though...

PepsiAddicted Thank you very much for the praise. many people don't realize how useful Fog can be.

ElPared I actually had Leyline of the Meek before in this deck. I took it out because it only really works if you have it in your opening hand. otherwise you have to pay a lot for it.On the other hand I am trying to make this deck even more of a budget and I am thinking about getting rid of all/some of the Coat of Arms to reduce the price. Replacing it I will definitely add Glare of Subdual and keep Hour of Reckoning in the sideboard.As for Sprout Swarm I am trying to keep all the tokens in this deck white so I am afraid the card is out. Thank you very much for the suggestions though.

I'd replace Coat of Arms with Leyline of the Meek

Leylines can come out turn 0 and are always helpful. Coat of Arms can only come out turn 5 and only helps you if you're already winning. (it's a win more card basically)

also some of my old standby favorites for token decks from back in the day:

Glare of Subdual : Oh you have blockers? not if my freshly summoned tokens have anything to say about it. And forget about attacking too btw.

Hour of Reckoning : I stay, you go

Sprout Swarm : Instant speed tokens are always good. Free ones forever are even better. (yes you can convoke the buyback cost)
