Sylvan Awakening


Until your next turn, all lands you control become 2/2 Elemental creatures with reach, indestructible, and haste. They’re still lands.

I would cut Mind's Eye and Seer's Sundial for Elemental Bond and Rishkar's Expertise .

Ulamog's Crusher for Ulvenwald Hydra . Grunn, the Lonely King for Whiptongue Hydra . Scute Mob for Managorger Hydra .

Sylvan Awakening for Heroic Intervention . Don't know what to cut for Inspiring Call .

Probably Seek the Horizon for Animist's Awakening .

Also Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar is a better version of Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer .

Keep in mind these are just cutting suggestions and I never played with your deck. I could be that some cuts are really good cards in your deck and I don't know it because I did not play with your deck.

Sylvan Awakening would be a good addition here. Maybe also The Gitrog Monster ?

and then you can protect your land creatures with Heroic Intervention , Make a Stand , etc.

randomthing on Animating Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle before ...

1 month ago

I have began brewing Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle and am trying to understand the interactions that involve animating him before the slumber counters are removed. I am unsure which P/T ends up beind used with spells like Sylvan Awakening, Awakener Druid, etc. So heres an example: What is the end result if I use Elemental Uprising on Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle.

Well, first of all I'm glad you like the deck's idea and thanks for all the great suggestions you gave.

Now, yeah, probably Life from the Loam and Crucible of Worlds could be moved in sideboard. The fact that made me think they would be usefull is that tons of decks play cards as Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin and this could be a problem if I want to win due to Maze's End

Tolaria West is a good card, but do I really need it? I mean, I have 4x Ancient Stirrings, 4x Gatecreeper Vine and 4x Primeval Titan, do I really need another land tutor?

By the way, Sylvan Awakening (maybe better than Natural Affinity cause it gives indestructible and haste), Bojuka Bog and Courser of Kruphix are great suggestions, that will definitely be added to the deck

Cool deck idea!

It seems like you're kind of expecting people to main board land destruction with the Crucible of Worlds and Life from the Loam but I think they're more of sideboard cards in this deck. Not many decks are going to be consistently putting you behind with land destruction except maybe Ponza. Maybe chuck some Courser of Kruphix in their place. It's always good against aggro.

Tolaria West is a cool land that enters un-tapped thanks to amulet and can be used to tutor up other lands maybe? Bojuka Bog is a good land to tutor for vs Dredge. Honestly this feels a lot like playing Amulet Titan. Maybe even Celestial Colonnade and other man-lands for defense.

Sylvan Awakening would be another cool alternative win-con or maybe just Natural Affinity if you need an army of instant speed blockers.

So the plan is to play The Mending of Dominaria turn 5, then scapeshift turn 6, then sylvan awakening?

What is Old-Growth Dryads doing? It gives you opponent a free land and doesn't help you go off. This deck isn't trying to beat-down, so getting a 3/3 for 1 doesn't really matter.

This looks fun, but if you can't find Sylvan Awakening your going to loose.

Very cool idea, +1 from me!

As soon as I saw your list a few neat ideas came to mind:

Man lands are awesome but I think having plenty of other ways to turn your lands into beefy creatures is important too.

I’d also go with plenty of ramp spells, which in this deck is basically cheating free creatures into play. Nature's Lore, Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, Sylvan Scrying and Crop Rotation are all great options.
