Inkmoth on Yeva Draw-Grow

1 month ago

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)

Biggest ones I have to suggest: Jade Mage and Reassembling Skeleton. They're monsters. 2 mana for 1 sacrifice? Yes, PLEASE! Ant Queen is also good, similar, and a bigger body.

However if that is not enough- which I'll assume it's not- Artifact Mutation is freaking delicious. Bitterblossom is a staple. Creakwood Liege also pumps the majority of your deck. Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast is also decent removal and his ult is insane. Descent of the Dragons could be an alternate wincon. Dragonlair Spider looks like garbage but can get out of hand in a hurry. Druid's Call is honestly insane, it's a great deterrent for blockers. Elemental Mastery is the best. Feral Incarnation, because it has convoke, is not so bad either. Necrogenesis is classic. Ogre Slumlord is a baller and a great rattlesnake. Plague of Vermin is a really nice way to put some damage in on your opponents, especially if the political atmosphere is good. Rampaging Baloths is craaazy. Sprouting Thrinax has served me well. Sylvan Offering can make some friends AND some tokens. Verdant Embrace and Verdant Force are good. Wolfcaller's Howl is good I think?

Il tuo mazzo necessita di un buon pacchetto di removal per far morire quante più creature possibili, in modo da rendere Kresh grosso, ed allo stesso tempo ti servono cose che diano evasion a kresh per fare in modo che riesca a colpire. Farò suggerimenti su cambi funzionali e cambi di budget, sia in più economico che in più costoso.

Valuta di trovare un posto per carte che diano colpo sicuro a Kresh, come:

Valuta di inserire qualche sacrifice outlet come (nella sezione terre ce ne sono altre molto forti):

Nella sezione terre ti consiglio:

Se con queste sostituzioni nella mana base finisci per avere più di quattro terre che producono , valuta di inserire al posto di una creatura ramp la Chromatic Lantern, che è stata ristampata da poco ed è scesa.

TempleOfAsmodeus on Quick Easy Q: Marwyn, the ...

If I have Marwyn, the Nurturer on the battlefield and cast Sylvan Offering with X=3 (or Hunting Triad), does Marwyn get a single +1/+1 counter, or 3?
