Joe_Ken_ I like those suggestions a lot. Where would you suggest putting them in? I could see taking out Squirrel Nest , but it's really nice to have a way for the combo to go off without Marath.

I'm glad I could help you out with your Ghave deck. The reason I don't run Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives is because Doubling Season is strictly better. Better off to have a Parallel Lives and Corpsejack Menace on one card than only have half the effect. Primal Vigor is good but also enables counters for our opponents. While that's not necessarily a huge concern, it's enough for me to prefer Illusionist's Bracers over it which is essentially DS when attached to Ghave. I think I would prefer Crystalline Crawler over Workhorse just for the lower cmc cost and the fact that the mana is any color. However I see other lines to infinite mana as more efficient. Those don't really help us get there until we already are going infinite with counters.


The only reason I don't run Squirrel Nest is that it's a dead card outside of Earthcraft . We want combo synergy here so that each card has a use more often than not.


You know I had been considering that recently myself. The interaction those have with Earthcraft and Arbor Elf can be insane and better than some other ramp. I'll have to see where I would want to slot them in. Chromatic Lantern is an easy cut at considering we also have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth if we really need to color fix to . I might take out Elves of Deep Shadow or something similar. Thanks for the suggestion! Duly noted!

Dude, you deserve a shout out! You're the one who got me started down this path. Lol

You can include Squirrel Nest here because of the infinite tokens combo with Earthcraft .

I am not sold on your key combo - Peace of Mind to discard Deep Forest Hermit to reanimate it with Vesperlark is a whole host of moving parts, none of which have suitable redundancies. That said, I think Noose Constrictor is probably an upgrade to Peace of Mind - the body with reach is nifty, and the lack of mana cost in its discard ability is invaluable.

A couple copies of Arbor Elf for ramp, and a splash of blue for Intruder Alarm would also enable you to go infinite with Squirrel Nest .

Another nasty thing you can do is add Squirrel Nest and Earthcraft

It's really more of a meme than anything.

During MH1 draft, there was a guy at my table running Selesnya Squirrels and he DOMINATED the game. He came in 1st place.

He had Squirrel Nest and Deep Forest Hermit , but he ALSO had like 3x Astral Drift to keep the engine going.

He took down multiple Sliver decks. Think about that.

So I've picked up Boneyard Wurm and added in a few more bits of token generation with Garruk Relentless  Flip and Squirrel Nest . I've also swapped out Naturalize for Avoid Fate to help protect me from removal. Lastly, I've started building out my sideboard for more specialized situations

Good morning, DoWell. Thanks for commenting. THe reason I don't run those cards is because I run a lot of boardwipes, and Torpor Orb , which really kills Avenger of Zendikar . But I feel if people don't run these cards, they should definitely run Avenger of Zendikar and Craterhoof Behemoth especially with Tooth and Nail .

I specifically am running a stax-style deck in which the wincons aren't necessarily buff creatures, but through direct damage like Squall Line , lands attacking like Sylvan Awakening , and funny dumb things like infinite squirrels Earthcraft + Squirrel Nest . I mean, squirrels and forests are buddies here. :)
