Grind on Harvesting You to Feed the Machine

2 days ago

Hi, cool deck and very unique! mono-green artifact synergy in EDH is pretty unusal!
saw your deck on the commander thread. I have not built a mono green edh deck but here are some quick suggestions, hopefully some of them are in your budget and/or look fun enough to run.

two things that green does fantastically that could tune-up your list are ramp and recursion. some ramp cards like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Skyshroud Claim could fit in over Attune with Aether depending on how dedicated to the energy subtheme you are. also Sol Ring!!
for recursion, Regrowth and Recollect are sometimes better than Reclaim, Pulse of Murasa. also i really like Seasons Past over Wildest Dreams - six mana for a full hand over ~2 cards.

a couple options for your win cons, depending on if you want to lean more towards combo or more towards token/stompy wins.
combo: Staff of Domination, Paradox Engine, and mana dorks like Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds can get you into a big mana/card draw situation. Cloud Key is another foundry inspector.
token stompy: cards like Hornet Queen, Myr Battlesphere, Avenger of Zendikar, coupled with more overrun effects like Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, or Kamahl, Fist of Krosa can give you a more aggro tilt. Genesis Wave may be a fun option for either direction.

finally if you want to run more removal/disruption, Beast Within, Reclamation Sage, Acidic Slime, Terastodon, all help the cause and provide bodies to swing or block.
hope this all helps and sorry if it is goodstuff suggestions! cheers and have fun.

When I first saw the Staff of Domination combo I thought the same thing. I love the deck and where it is, my last comment for now being that Reclamation Sage is a more sideboard card, unless your playgroup likes artifacts and enchantments. In games where it is not needed Dwynen's Elite or Elvish Visionary would both be decent options. Glad I could help a bit and once again I love the deck.

Oloro_Magic Awesome suggestions, dude, thank you. Think I've finally got the deck to a place that I like a lot. Loving Lys Alana Huntmaster, comes in very clutch; you're right, definitely breaks Essence Warden.

And god damn, Staff of Domination would be nasty.. something to think about in the future, for sure

So not sure what your thoughts are money wise, since some cards you have are 25-35 and most others are bulks, BUT if you want i recommend switching Coldsteel Heart out for Mox Opal, or maybe some Chrome Mox [can exile extra 'dead'copies of omniscience in hand to it] Also I recommend trying to find a new draw mechanic, i get that it is there to sac academy rector, but you should look for a draw power to get to a needed card to 'combo' off. Maybe Staff of Domination?

I play (white) Stax in Legacy and there's no real way around having 4 Chalice and Trinisphere in the deck. Maybe 3 Trinisphere, because its effect is not cummulative (Chalice can be cast for different X if you get more than one) but you need to have them and you want to play them on turn 1 if possible. You can do very much with the rest of the deck, playing almost creatureless or going for a rather aggressive strategy, but some parts are absolutely necessary.

That would be for you:

It may seem to reduce the fun a bit, when you can't make every "cool" creature work but trust me, there's nothing more fun than a turn 1 trinisphere...

The Staff of Domination does seem kinda out of place, but I'd just love to see an infinite mana combo using Elvish Archdruid with 5 elves. Draw your whole deck, gain infinite life, force-tapdown your opponent's battlefield, it just seems fun lol.

Jandor's Saddlebags, Thousand-Year Elixir, Puppet Strings, and/or Staff of Domination to allow you to use Yisan's ability more than once per turn?

I see your good cards and raise you a Zealous Conscripts.

Watched my girlfriend open a Verdant Catacombs and an invention Staff of Domination (from a freaking into planeswalker pack) just after.
