Squirrel Wrangler Discussion
1 week ago
Mark Rosewater isn't answering many squirrel questions, so we have to use our best judgement. I included Argothian Enchantress in my deck. Looks like a weird flying squirrel.
When I built my squirrel deck I started looking through squirrel art alot and its very loose and each artest is different. Many different shapes and sizes from Acornelia, Fashionable Filcher looking like a Rat imho (with the darkened tail hard to see in low light) to Chatter of the Squirrel looking like a chipmunk, to Squirrel Wrangler looking like beavers imo. So just gotta roll with it and have fun.
You can check my deck if you'd like. No matter how you build squirrels it won't be commmander legal so its backup fun deck for me with my friends.

Turntimber Sower does make Hoof food, but it also provides repeatable land recursion.
Squirrel Wrangler is actually a strong utility card. It makes two bodies per activation and it's a sac outlet. It's very powerful with Gaea's Cradle (as are the other two creatures mentioned). Sacrifice one land, net three creatures, Cradle taps for an additional 3. Repeat as necessary :)
I'm not really a fan of Amulet of Vigor for this deck. I don't play enough lands that enter tapped or cards that put lands into play tapped. Elvish Reclaimer can be activated at instant speed which makes the land entering tapped irrelevant. Lotus Field is just another land that sacrifices two lands for immediate value when it enters. It entering tapped isn't really a downside because it can sac tapped lands (unlike Lotus Vale and Scorched Ruins ). As for Evolving Wilds , I'm cutting that for the strictly better fetchland from Throne of Eldraine.

I really like this! Very close to what I would make in a world where I have several thousand dollars to spend on cards. Are Turntimber Sower , Avenger of Zendikar and Squirrel Wrangler just craterhoof food? I've been unimpressed with them in the past. Also, with the advent of Elvish Reclaimer , Lotus Field and Springbloom Druid I've been leaning more and more toward playing Amulet of Vigor . Is that too cute?

Claws of Gix is a card I should really have in here, and it's cheap to buy also, always a plus. I'm on a semi-budget, basically I buy myself an expensive new addition a few times a year (I don't know if I'll ever get my hands on a Gaea's Cradle heh). My next planned purchase is a Command Beacon which honestly seems pretty broken with Titania ^^
Lotus Vale and Akroma's Memorial are definitely on my radar, but I feel like the beacon is more important at this point, the memorial is definitely awesome though. I also used to run Natural Balance , but I too often found it sitting in my hand for too many turns in a row, so I ended up cutting it.
I was interested in your Squirrel Wrangler inclusion, I hadn't considered it with Gaea's Cradle , the combo with Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip is cool, but it's not tutor-able like the cradle is to combo with the Squirrel Wrangler , do you find the wrangler to be good on it's own without the cradle as well?
Ah yeah, that's a good reminder! Petrified Field was out of stock last I time I ordered and since then I just kinda forgot about it. I'm definitely going to pick one up together with the Command Beacon .

Claws of Gix is nice to run alongside Sylvan Safekeeper and Zuran Orb for the sake of consistency. You have to pay mana into it, but it lets you sac any permanent. You can sacrifice your creatures, mainly Titania, should an opponent try to steal her.
Akroma's Memorial is also a good include. Pretty self explanatory lol

gb: Oooohh, Reprocess is awesome! Definitely finding room for that. But I'm not sure about Rain of Filth... unless you think it's a must-have, a single Squandered Resources should be enough for me.
I've also been looking at Squirrel Wrangler - do you think it has a place here?

Krosan Beast doesn't really do much for you.
Aether Vial really only fits in heavy creature decks with similar CMC, which this really isn't.
Oran-Rief, the Vastwood would be a great way to pump up your creatures. Since you potentially make so many in a single turn, this card can dish out a ton of +1/+1 counters, making your squirrel tokens more threatening.
Mutavault is another land that could benefit your deck.
Squirrel Wrangler might be a decent one of as a finisher.

Honor_BasquiatWell you have a few options. More hate could always be used IE: Broken Bond Reclamation Sage or you could run some big beefy beaters like Rampaging Baloths Kamahl, Fist of Krosa or Thunderfoot Baloth or you could run more land recursion like say Tilling Treefolk or Cartographer or more land sack outlets like Spitting Spider or Squirrel Wrangler I hope this helps! Thank you for loving my primer! This deck is kind of my baby I've been working on it for 2 years now!
