Sprout Swarm Discussion

Crawling Sensation might be better than crop sigil. there's better ways to get repeat-able GY shenanigans, and ...sensation, allows for the "may" trigger at upkeep, which while not as fast or deep as something like Vessel of Nascency even fits a little better with "insect" could reasonably mean spider.

and if you're OK on the insect being spider idea. something like Sprout Swarm might be a bit more of a stretch but would go nuts in a token heavy spider deck

some other green staples. Green Sun's Zenith ye olde Doubling Season type cards to max tokens, even something like Evolutionary Leap alluren is great for green haste goodness. and other misc cards Asceticism just good stuff. also... blanking on the name. but green has a couple of cards, that recur everything of a certain creature type. black has similar. ie. Patriarch's Bidding can lead to some late game gas.

Seems like Sprout Swarm could be a useful card. Maybe not impactful enough though.

Boza Thanks for the suggestions! I do think you might be underestimating Massive Raid a bit, however- Massive Raid is a midgame card with terrifying potential. It's a response card that I have used several times to either remove huge threats, or simply seal the game- It's not uncommon to see it do 8+ damage. Where, on the other hand, Rites of Initiation, while a powerful card in it's own right that does have a much cheaper initial mana cost, requires a much, MUCH heftier investment of resources in the form of the cards that are discarded- It's a card that I feel would fit much better in something like Mono-Red Goblins, which could use it to seal the game in a very timely manner.

on your suggestion of cutting Echoing Courage- Because of the unity of my token types, Echoing Courage is both a powerful offensive and defensive tool. The offensive capabilities are fairly self-explanatory, but the defensive capabilities are just as, if not more, important- It can save the swarm from every mass removal used right now, as well as make it to where they can have very favorable trades against large attackers.

Now, as far as some of your other suggestions, I'm not really sold on Scatter the Seeds, to be honest- It does have convoke, which is a relevant ability, but it at the same time makes another relevant card in the deck, Brood Birthing, categorically worse. (It does the same to Echoing Courage, but as you're making a case for that card to be taken out, that would be a moot argument anyway, wouldn't it? :P) Sprout Swarm, I feel, has similar arguments against it, but it is a card that could help a stalled late-game or for wipe recovery, so I may consider putting it in as a 1-of.

Keep Watch However, I feel, is the strongest contender here, with the best argument. This deck's most obvious deficiency is it's lack of card draw, which means that against decks that do have CD, if it comes to Topdeck wars, decks with CD do have an obvious advantage, so it is a card I'll put serious consideration towards.

Once again though, thanks! :D I'm very thankful for the feedback.

massive raid is kind of underwhelming, i would play Rites of Initiation for the cheaper mana and possibly greater effect. Additionally, you can add blue and play Keep Watch for a massive combo between those two cards (-4 rugged, -1 mountain, -1 forest, + 4 Terramorphic Expanse, +2 Island). Echoing courage should be Scatter the Seeds as 3 free creatures is what this deck needs. At least 1 Sprout Swarm for the late game is needed.

Thanks VeaulAgaul, I actually just brewed this deck so as yet it's untried, but Sprout Swarm does seem like it could be good. It's actually in my mess of a maybe board with a truck load of other cards, so I don't blame you for missing it ;)
