Sylvan Ranger Discussion

Dennis14 on Mono-White Emeria [Primer]

I actually like Sylvan Ranger over STE because he doesn't have to be sacrificed to give the land and even get in for a couple points of damage before chump-blocking.

The main reason to be in Green as far as I'm concerned is Eternal Witness though: Yavimaya Dryad, Primeval Titan and Courser of Kruphix are pretty good too imho.

It is even possible to run Summoner's Pact to get the Titan though I didn't try it.

Cool deck!

I'm in process of brewing a similar deck and found some cards that would be good here:

  1. Courser of Kruphix - can help hit land drops, gain life and block.
  2. Carven Caryatid/Elvish Visionary - can help cantrip and block and basically act as more copies of Wall of Omens which is useful since the deck doesn't have Court Hussar like the U/W version.
  3. Sylvan Ranger/Yavimaya Dryad - can help get lands for emeria and cast Titan on time, basically more efficient versions of Pilgrim's Eye.
  4. Beast Within - a versatile removal spell and the deck can wall the beast easily.
  5. Primeval Titan - a big threat that can fetch lands.
  6. Nest Invader - can block and ramp to cast Titan earlier.
  7. Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip - fetches a land and can trasform rather reliably in this deck.
  8. Crystallization/Temporal Isolation - removal/pacifism spells that can be recurred by Sun Titan.

Btw, here is my deck -

G/W Emeria Titan

You don't have the types of lands that would make Farseek more useful than a card that fetches basics, so maybe you should go for Sylvan Ranger, Borderland Ranger, Pilgrim's Eye, or Solemn Simulacrum in that slot. Repeated ramp/deck thinning by bouncing is better than doing it once. Same thing goes for Rampant Growth.

If you make Dragonlord Atarka your commander and slap in some more lands and creatures this would be a decent start to a commander deck. lol

You really need to cut down on cards and get more sets of things like Sylvan Ranger and Harrow so you can have more consistent ramping.

Greenweaver Druid is pretty slow to get out, Llanowar Elves or Birds of Paradise are much better. The more of each, the merrier too.Cultivate and Khalni Heart Expedition are nice, the latter works really well with the former and Harrow.

More burn cards would be good, like: Shock, Red Sun's Zenith, Fireball, or Devil's PlayBurn cards with X are seriously great in a ramp deck. They'll give you more flexibility to destroy creatures you can't in battle and let you win with direct damage.

I'd pull out Fire-Belly Changeling, Chandra's Outrage, Giant Growth, Reverberate, Claws of Valakut, Savage Punch, and Spitting Earth just because they don't seem to mesh well with what you're going for. They just kind of seem jammed in there.

Punishing Fire you might want to sideboard, it's basically just a more expensive Shock unless you play against a life gain deck.

Dragon Fodder and Mudbutton Torchrunner won't be a huge help because you only actually have two, maybe three, cards that take advantage of them. One of which, Skirk Prospector, doesn't have a lot to do because your other goblins do useful things that you want them on the field for doing.

Abundant Growth and Prophetic Prism could probably come out because you're only running two colors and you're already fetching whatever color lands you need. Try the deck without them and see.

Embodiment of Fury and From Beyond give you board presence and blockers in a way better then Nissa, Voice of Zendikar since she will just put plants and be target for a swing giving you some time... get Leaf Gilder and Lifespring Druid for Sylvan Ranger,Elvish Visionary or try this red magics that gives 2 damage to all creatures, this way you can be good against aggro decks and for more landfall, more Nissa's Renewal, Animist's Awakening and get Cinder Glade out for Warped Landscape and/or Evolving Wilds since you only need red mana in turn 3 or 4... Wild-Field Scarecrow can help block and Mina and Denn, Wildborn... since i will build this deck for magic duels origins, i will have some card limits and i'm thinking how to get extra ideas...

Thanks for everyone's suggestions. I will update the decklist over the weekend with my edits. I'll definitely be looking to put in the Illusionist's Bracers and Eerie Interlude / Ghostway. Prime Speaker Zegana is a definite upgrade over Sea Gate Oracle and Farhaven Elf is a better Sylvan Ranger. I'll probably also make room for Stonehorn Dignitary somewhere (maybe Auramancer).

Currently Evangel of Heliod is there in conjunction with the Knight-Captain of Eos to prevent combat damage. I usually get 5+ tokens off him so even in 3 colors he pulls his weight and I'm not ready to cut him. Likewise with Trostani's Summoner the creature generation is just bonkers. The math I had to do when blinking the summoner while I had a Juniper Order Ranger and Cathars' Crusade out was absolutely ridiculous.

Opted against Terastodon because I don't like land destruction and usually there aren't enough artifacts/enchants/planeswalkers to justify blinking him. But if I end up needing a more competitive card, he's definitely available.

The token makers such as Progenitor Mimic and Followed Footsteps I'll have to give some consideration to later, mostly because I don't immediately have them on hand, but they certainly have merit.

Deck's gonna be a boss when I'm done with it thanks to all your help!

Congratulations to Kala this round. Due to her/his suggestions I plan to make the following changes:

1 Farhaven Elf -> Sylvan Ranger. Mostly a direct upgrade for a single mana more. My copy of Farhaven Elf was hanging out in another deck. Time to bring him over here.

2 Stonehorn Dignitary -> Monk Realist. With an Indrik Stomphowler, Acidic Slime and Aura Shards, enchantment removal is well covered. I'm sure I have a lowly Dignitary lying about in a box somewhere.

3 Prime Speaker Zegana -> Sea Gate Oracle. Just more card draw. I originally didn't have Zegana when I first made the deck but acquired one over Christmas in the Commander precon deck. Now is a great time to make this addition.

4 Ghostway -> Primeval Bounty. I know the suggestion was Eerie Interlude but I happen to have a Ghostway already and its a similar card. If I get a copy of Interlude, I'll swap it, but for now I'll use Ghostway.

Honorable mention to MagicalHacker for the suggestion of Illusionist's Bracers which I'll likely swap in for Cloudshift as well.

Thanks for all the suggestions - this deck's gonna be a boss!
