Sylvan Ranger Discussion

tempest on Mono Green Beast

6 days ago

heyy! this is so nostalgic! mono green beasts was my first deck too although it ended being more of a "big creatures" deck. what exactly is your budget? it'll help a lot in terms of what cards i would suggest adding.

There are a few cards that i absolutely loved and i think need a spot in the deck. Joraga Treespeaker and Myr Superion was a little combo i loved pulling off. turn 2 5/6 is not something to scoff at. you can get both for under a dollar too. if you can get your hands on some Sylvan Rangers too, that would help you consistently get your land drops. and finally, Overwhelming Stampede is almost a guaranteed game winner in this deck.

i'll leave these two decks at your disposal. check them out and see what cards you like from each of them. if you have any questions, i'd love to help! Genesis wave into a win and Tribal Deck: Beasts. the first one is the deck i was talking about over. the second one is just for reference in case you find any other beasts you like from there

You're off to a great start though!

DisconnectedAG on Safe-Conduct for Elves

Not sure about Yavimaya Dryad, who is not an elf. Sylvan Ranger has better synergy.

Elvish Archdruid is definitely missing as he is both a lord and gives you a fuckload of mana, which I think you should spend on having two Ezuri, Renegade Leader. Also think that Elvish Promenade could go in favor of Overrun, at least one or two.

Other things is that you can easily consider going down to 21 or 20 lands in this, I think, given that your curve is very low.

Also, and I'm sure you've thought of that, but Lush Growth also gives your opponent access to those mana colours.

I just built my first elf deck and it's really fun.Elvish Archdruid works really well both for mana and extra attack power.Arbor Elf is better than Llanowar Elves because you can untap a forest that has Elvish Guidance on it.Elvish Visionary doesn't seem that great at first, but the extra cards really help to speed up your deck.Instead of using Naturalize, you can summon Reclamation Sage.Instead of using Rampant Growth, you can summon Sylvan Ranger.

maybe Lightning Greaves for some extra protection on animar or to haste things like your mana dorks if you are bouncing those with Cloudstone Curio to recast for cheap. also, another combo route for infinite guys is the Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch and Splinter Twin combo. what to cut to make room...maybe Roaring Primadox as cloudstone gives you the option and isn't required. also, Sylvan Ranger could go as Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf are both better and already in here. it also seems like Gladecover Scout is a little underwhelming in an animar build

@Alayjo95Song of the Dryads is definitely interesting as a way to remove things. I'll have to see about getting one. I'm playing Sylvan Ranger over Wood Elves because Ranger costs 1 less mana and this deck only really needs to get to 3 lands - Wood Elves doesn't help me if I'm stuck with only 2 lands, but Sylvan Ranger does.

Song of the Dryads could be a really good card in this deck. Being able to get rid of their commander or whatever threat is on the board while also being able to utilize Forestwalk in case the opponent isn't playing any forests. Also why not play Wood Elves instead of Sylvan Ranger?
