Sprout Swarm Discussion

Ok, if the deck is not standard legal, there are a lot more new options available to us in the modern pool of cards. The basis of the deck will be 4 Yisan, the Wanderer Bard and 4 Chord of Calling and 24 lands and here are a couple of different configurations for the other 28 cards:

1 Archangel of Thune + 1 Spike Feeder - our main win condition, these two cards together create a combo for infinite life and infinite +1/+1 tokens on all you creatures.

2 Acidic Slime - general utility.

4 Avacyn's Pilgrim - general white mana dude.

1 Master of the Wild Hunt - an amazing token producer.

1 Magus of the Moat - protects you.

2 Sprout Swarm - tokens!

4 Fists of Ironwood - two tokens for convoke

1 Feral Incarnation - great token producer

1 Verdant Force - great token producer.

1 Armada Wurm - great power for 6 mana.

2 Avenger of Zendikar - great token producer

1 Belfry Spirit - tokens!

1 Rhys the Redeemed - great scott, the tokens!

1 Hornet Nest - great to flash in as a defender!

2 Icatian Crier - great token producer

1 Twilight Drover - great to Chord in when your tokens are threatened with removal.

1 Thraben Doomsayer - terrific token producer, amazing to fetch when you have less than 5 life!

This is just a sample of what can be done. Tell me if you enjoy this style of deck and if i should go to even more extremes - the next one will be either be Tribal or go to even more extremes with Legacy legal cards.

Possible cuts: Coat of Arms , just as likely to kill you.

Restore , not being abused at all.

Mizzium Mortars , not nearly as good as it's blue counterpart in EDH. It's decent early but late game it's not guaranteed to kill the things you would need it for. Plus you have others.

Genesis Wave . Currently you are running too many spells for me to run this, but the deck could be shifted to utilize it better.

Reincarnation . It's hard to make it work like you want it to without explicitly running a graveyard strategy.

Momentous Fall is a one time effect that you already have the cheaper version of. The life isn't typically that relevant.

Gruul Charm is versatile, but could be replaced with a stronger card. More often than not its relevant mode will be to nuke the skies and there's stronger effects for that.

Where Ancients Tread probably doesn't pull its weight.

Night Soil isn't strong enough without a graveyard theme.

Spontaneous Generation is too conditional for my liking.

Thromok the Insatiable , super cool, but he nukes your board to be good, then dies before he even could swing.

Saber Ants isn't getting pumped or evasive, and isn't pulling it's weight.

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , isn't on theme, awesome however.

Ivy Lane Denizen , not good enough.

Inferno Titan , not on theme.

Hornet Nest . The deck isn't currently abusing this, adjusted to this could be great.

Possible additions:

If you end up leaning more toward goblins

-Krenko, Mob Boss

More toward Saporlings

Keep your hand stocked- Skullmulcher

Good stuff to be considered:

Came across this deck when looking for ideas on abusing Intruder Alarm .

Have you considered 2 or 3 Dryad Arbor ? (Possibly in place of a few Yavimaya Coast ...)

With Intruder Alarm , it is a land that untaps when a creature comes into play... and a land that untags all creatures when it comes into play.
Combine with your Imperious Perfect , and you've got unlimited 2/2 elf creatures since you will have the mana for unlimited activations.

Sprout Swarm would also be hilarious... pay 5 mana from creatures only (or Convoke)... get a 1/1, and return the card to your hand. - Intruder Alarm untaps the creatures to rinse and repeat.

...Perhaps I'm putting too much emphasis on the alarm?

Deck gets +1 from me.

Cauldron of Souls seems like it could be pretty interesting for this deck. Sprout Swarm is also really good.

A good way to abuse a Card combo in your deck would involve an infinite spam of tokens.Using Cream of the Crop +Into the Wilds + Intruder Alarm + Sprout Swarm creates the card that you want to see next as well as providing a large quantity of replenishable creatures

Why does everyone always forget Sprout Swarm ?

Solid deck, lots of good cards that make me wish I had a bigger budget. Good thinking about removal in case of commander damage, but when it comes to removal for commanders, you might want to consider options that keep your opponents from just recasting them. Enchantments like Darksteel Mutation , Faith's Fetters , and (if you want to be silly) Lignify can neuter a commander without actually removing it from the field, as opposed to cards like Banishing Light , since the exile effect would just send it straight back to the command zone. There are also cards like Oblation and Condemn to tuck the commander back into a player's deck and prevent them from recasting it until they eventually draw it again.

Not a big fan of Battle Mastery or Unflinching Courage , since they die when the creature they're enchanting dies. Perhaps consider replacing them with something that can be reused, like Loxodon Warhammer or Rancor .

And on a final note, no token deck is complete without Sprout Swarm .

I don't really see what purpose Preeminent Captain serves, since your only other Soldier spell is Mentor of the Meek. Might I suggest replacing it with Sprout Swarm , a Saproling maker with both Convoke and Buyback that no token deck is complete without.
