Is there room for Sylvan Offering in here? I already see Tempt with Vengeance as a mass token maker.

Decks that give things to other people are always pretty cool, and having all five colors gives you a lot of control over how to make that happen.

  • You know who's cool? Xantcha, Sleeper Agent . In terms of cards that give other people cards, this is a cool card that gives someone a card. Rite of the Raging Storm is a good one too, though I suspect it doesn't let you choose who gets it in the same way as these other ones. Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor and Akroan Horse as well. I was going to bring up Sylvan Offering , but you have it already.

  • Two of my favorite cards in the game are Coveted Jewel and Stuffy Doll . Both of these are pretty neat; they encourage people to attack you, but move that damage around. Stuffy Doll is a great way to get around opponents pillow forts, etc, while coveted jewel is great for you specifically, giving you much needed mana (not that you lack mana, but 5 color decks can always use a card that can give all 5) and card draw. In my own Thantis deck, I found both these cards to be worth a ton of political leverage.

@thrane Thanks! Royal Assassin is on-theme, but I didn't like how slow and obvious he was.

As I started to run more punishing cards, I slowly phased out the cards that also gave me Tokens. Sylvan Offering is certainly great for giving others Tokens, but I wanted to take less damage from my own Incite Rebellion and whatnot.

I ran Disrupt Decorum for a long while, but eventually cut it for how long it'd end up sitting in my hand. It might be that I spent too much time waiting for an opportune moment, or maybe it's just not as good with Thantis in your Command zone.

Assault Suit is kinda gimmicky. I understand the idea behind it, but it's quite the mana investment to donate Thantis around the table. This ended up being one of my first cuts.

I could see Mirage Mirror being a good addition. You could certainly run it if you want to.

Inkmoth on Yeva Draw-Grow

I'd say the pod is closer to 90%ish. The Windgrace ain't anything special right now, it's literally every cost efficient piece of interaction while ramping up to an eventual Obliterate & Co.

Yeva isn't just an orrery in the cz. Yeva represents the same threat that 2 untapped islands shows, while acting as a form of "protection" for your combo, as you don't have to decide whether you're going to play interactive or try to combo in your turn as it's then available across all turns! That's like... a huge buff! For this reason I feel Yeva is stronger than Yisan, as Yisan is in front of your opponents and your steps to winning are broadcast - despite any protection you may have.

This more or less encapsulates exactly how I feel about Yeva, however, she requires godly hands to outpace Yisan's inherent consistency. I would never undercut her strength, as I am absolutely obsessed with the precedent she establishes. In a world where every hand (and following draw) is optimal, I would be brave enough to say she's "better" than Yisan. As I said in my Disclaimer, I think she's better in the right context, but she'll never compete with the bard's consistency. In fact, whenever Yisan is in my opening hand, I just commit to him until he's dealt with before having Yeva pop in with a replacement combo-crew.

Personally, I don't think Shaman is that great in Yisan, but that's just me.

Generous Patron : Cards like this in the deck are really here to gain CA and the Elf-body + outlet role in mind. Patron only needs one creature, if I feel like I won't be getting value out of it, I pitch it to Survival, Fauna, Chrome Mox, Natural Order, or Eldritch. While it's safe to say I have used Wirewood Symbiote to get procs off of the draw effects, I only do it in situations where I am out of steam or looking for gas. Think of every draw etb in the deck as an outlet, side from its primary function.

Thought-Knot Seer : I loved this guy in Yisan. He's definitely a win-more in my context and my inability to play him at instant speed is enough to deter me from ever considering him.

Lys Alana Huntmaster : The contexts where going wide proves to be a viable choice in this deck usually means I have won. Facilitating this card might be too difficult and I would rather go for Sylvan Offering for the going wide option since it also works with Selvala, Heart of the Wilds along with everything else you said.

Heritage Druid : Never worked in the deck. It finds it hard to truly commit to the Elf-subtheme. As you mentioned, there are only 7 non-mana producing elves. EDIT: I actually even tried to make Birchlore Rangers work to no avail.

Your version of the deck looks fun! but here are a few suggestions. . .

1: the hunted cycle is really fun, but there are much better cards that do the same thing, like Genesis Chamber , Sylvan Offering , Captive Audience Akroan Horse , and many more. also [[]] synergieses SO WELL with Thantis, it's hilarious.

2: if you want to give your opponents tokens, you gotta tickle them a little when they come in, and with cards like Essence Warden , Blood Seeker , Rampaging Ferocidon , and Xantcha, Sleeper Agent , they're bound to say "thanks, you shouldn't have. . . really"!

3: If you want the TRUEST pain of all, you simply MUST try making it hurt more to attack you! the trio of pain Hissing Miasma , Blood Reckoning , and Marchesa's Decree will all but guarantee pain for the opponents! but if you want the creatures to hurt, try cards like Caltrops and Circle of Flame to lay on the pain!

In conclusion, your deck is sweet, I took some of the cards in here for my own deck, and I can't wait to see how your deck changes and adapts!

(p.s. Assault Formation could be good if you keep on the wall plan)
