Sylvan Advocate Discussion

I agree that Sylvan Advocate looks pretty bad. Also Burst Lightning is strictly better than Tarfire. Needle Spires is pretty bad too, might want to throw in a check land or shock land instead. Any of the creatures suggested above would help, as would additional copies of Tireless Tracker and Grim Lavamancer.

Bloodbraid Elf, Knight of the Reliquary, Wild Nacatl, Tarmogoyf, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Scavenging Ooze are all cards to consider.

Sylvan Advocate doesn't seem good at all. You won't have 6 lands until turn 6, and even then a 4/5 on turn 6 with bigger man lands isn't very impressive.

You need a plan on how to beat decks like UW Control or Tron. Neither of those care about creature removal. Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, in particular, seems troublesome. Your creatures aren't strong enough attackers to pressure Teferi's loyalty and you'll 2-for-1 yourself trying to burn him down if you have 2 burn spells to use.

Fun deck. I've always liked Taty, but I've never built a deck around her.

A couple of staples I'd recommend you get your hands on ASAP for any deck are Eternal Witness (creature based recursion = good!), Sol Ring (Best ramp), Swiftfoot Boots and/or Lightning Greaves (protect your things), and perhaps Darksteel Plate. To quickly round out your bouncelands, also look for Simic Growth Chamber and Jungle Basin.

One thing to always keep an eye on in EDH is wincons. You have a couple goodies, but you could be running one or two more top-end cards to exploit your land count. If you're being more casual, I always recommend Progenitor Mimic because it's so fun. Rude Awakening is another way to make your lands work for you, Sylvan Advocate is a reasonable body and can buff your creature-lands. If you can get coin for it, Nissa, Worldwaker and Nissa, Steward of Elements are also both good 'walkers for both value and ramp, as is Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip.

Welcome to EDH! It's a blast of a format. Have fun brewing!

Hey chiri, Sylvan Advocate would work but buffing land creatures only isn't enough for this deck.

Hey there! Awesome deck! I was wondering if you've ever considered Sylvan Advocate. I actually just recently read the card properly and I didn't know it actually buffed your land creatures too!

I tried this with Natural Affinity and Sylvan Advocate a while back. The haste on Sylvan Awakening makes it a lot better. A beatdown plan isn't off the table. You actually reminded me to look back over the decklists.

Earth Surge/Elemental Uprising/Genju of the Cedars/Early Harvest are all there, and can have an impact, depending on what else you are jamming and what the plan is.

Perilous Forays/Seed the Land can give you quite a lot of range.

Hey Murphy77, i honestly prefer the Shaman to Dwynen.
About the lands i've simply put the expensive ones into the maybe board because of budget "problems", love the Asceticism and Sylvan Advocate and i guess there's a Nissa planeswalker that can animate lands... i gotta check it out
