Sylvan Ranger Discussion

The only thing I would want to see in this deck is some supplementing for your high mana win condition. 28 lands but they are not helping too much. Some classic ol rangers like Sylvan Ranger or Wood Elves will help you mill out your land and provide ramp, while also giving someing to chump block with.

An Awakening Zone may not go a stray here either and it's synergy with trostani Trostani, Selesnya's Voice and Grove of the Guardian is amazing..

Finally some straight out hand refreshing is always good. Staff of Nin is always outstanding in a ramp deck or just a straight Harmonize .

Other than that, just a +1 for the Vorocious worm alone! Love him.

colonel_octopus: You are right, I miss read Abundant Growth . Nevertheless I prefer it over Utopia Sprawl because it allows me to draw a card.

hdlu: Since some cards like Sylvan Ranger and Evolving Wilds get me all the lands I need relatively fast, I prefer to launch bigger creatures like Woolly Thoctar and Loxodon Smiter rather than more apes and lions. However I will keep in mind the recommendation.

I will look forward to the other replacements, like Lightning Helix and Lightning Bolt too.

Thank you both for your comments.

Soul of the Harvest is already present and accounted for. I prefer Blue Sun's Zenith over Primordial Sage because I tend to find myself with an empty hand late game. The Zenith will let me gas up in one go from an empty board state. The Sage and the Soul both interact well in ideal conditions but are sub-optimal in an empty board state. Which is why I have the Soul in there.

The rampager is mostly there for the "Surprise! Trample!" aspect. If I'm in a tough spot he becomes a blocker. He's not irreplaceable, but I do like that his sheer presence in the deck keeps my opponents guessing.

Solemn Simulacrum is a good call and I would probably replace the Sylvan Ranger with him. Wurmcoil Engine is crazy good but also crazy out my budget for the moment. I'll make a note though in case a good trade comes up.

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is a possibility but I kind of feel like he's a real jerk of a card. The Eldrazi are off the table for now.

If you like flavor throw in Rith's Grove and Rith's Charm . Both decent cards. Artifact Mutation and Epic Struggle , both fit, both are cheap (I love inexpensive decks). Whispersilk Cloak is always nice. Triumph of the Hordes possibly. If you have this many token generators you NEED a Rhys the Redeemed .

I think I would remove Draco at least. I would trade Voyaging Satyr for a Sylvan Ranger or a Burnished Hart or both.

You also need some draw badly. Mulldrifter is one of the best. Early game divination, late game flicker target. Rhystic Study is great. Even Wall of Omens , Elvish Visionary are pretty good with the flicker effects. Wood Elves , Sylvan Ranger are good too.

Basalt Monolith , Thran Dynamo , Azorius Signet , Selesnya Signet , Simic Signet , Reliquary Tower

I have a roon deck that works pretty well, but since everything is so high in mana cost, I try to concentrate on ramp, and draw. You should see the board states that this deck ends up with. It is rather insane, but having 15+ mana available is why.

I'm surprised you don't run mana dorks or small land-fetch creatures in here. You're in the best colors to do so.

Llanowar Elves , Farhaven Elf , Wood Elves , Birds of Paradise , Viridian Emissary , and Sylvan Ranger are all small guys that can both accelerate your mana and go on the offensive once you have Gahiji out. Is this something that you are looking for?

carpecanum on Oprah says, "Counters for everyone!"

1 month ago

With a Master Biomancer you can put out a massive amount of counters if you throw in Quicksilver Gargantuan , Progenitor Mimic and any Clone type creature (and they are all good other critters as well as the MB...but a MB and the QGargantuan means +11 counters on each creature you summon...)

Contagion Engine , Contagion Clasp & Viral Drake can proliferate all your counters.

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood & Opal Palace for lands

Dream Stalker can evolve a lot of guys multiple times in the same turn

I would trade the Bond Beetle , Charging Badger , Sphinx of Uthuun , Voyaging Satyr ( to begin with) for ramp things like Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Simic Signet , Sylvan Ranger , Wood Elves , Drumhunter etc

Everything I said so far is very cheap... if you want to spend a few more bucks Vigor is amazing

peterlravn on Roon.... Ever heard of him?

1 month ago

Sylvan Ranger , Gatecreeper Vine and Solemn Simulacrum will definitely be throwed in :D Ramp is allways good. If someone knows any creatures that has a ETB ramp, please let me know! :D

Avenger is good, but pretty expensive :(

Viridian Shaman .... WHY IS IT ONLY ARTIFACTS!!! I will still consider it!

Nantuko Vigilante ... No ETB, no enclude :D

Heartstone ... I would rather hav some ramp...

The problem with Instill Energy is, that it is an aura. If Roon dies, it will die too. Therefore, I like the artifacts more :D

ROON HAS A FREAKING AWESOME ART! And then he is a RHINO! Who dosn't like rhino's? :)

The meaning of EDH is budget! :D Thanks for the +1 JakeHarlow!

obitus; Wargate is really awesome! I will include that when.... I has found something to remove!

Please let me know! What to remove!? I don't really know! HELP! Price
