Sylvan Safekeeper Discussion
3 days ago
Maybe add more ways to get lands into grave. I like whisperwood as a subtle way to do that. It and all the token generators work well with sac outlets

If you want faster, what you really should do is take a look at your mana cost of each card. Your average cmc is 3.69 and if you are looking for speed, you want to be somewhere around 2.5 or lower. Best way to do that is dump the least impactful of your highest cost creatures and put in mana dorks like Elvish Mystic and Fyndhorn Elves . You could also use some more interaction like Abrupt Decay , Nature's Claim , Toxic Deluge . I see that you already have an infinite combo, and also that you already have Protean Hulk how would you feel about using protean hulk to get a full infinite combo?
Hulk dies 1. Phyrexian Delver (returning Protean Hulk ) + Viscera Seer 2. Viscera Seer (sacrifice Protean Hulk ) 3. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Walking Ballista Opt. (in case of removal) 4. Viscera Seer (Phrexian Delver) 5. Viscera Seer (Protean Hulk) 6. Triskelion or Sylvan Safekeeper , Carrion Feeder

golgariizzet Yeah, I agree. I have Lord Windgrace in Oathbreaker too and I made it revolve around the Scapeshift + Valakut combo. While it works more often than not in my games with it, it really only works once since Scapeshift pulls almost all of the lands from the deck. After that, I rely on the Titania, Protector of Argoth + Sylvan Safekeeper combo to produce elementals from sacrificed lands and then using either Windgrace or Wrenn and Six / Crucible of Worlds / Ramunap Excavator to get it all back.

Hey VexenX, I love Burgeoning in the deck, it is almost if not the best turn 1 play we can have I would be very reluctant to cut it. If you're not seeing the value then of course do what works best with your play style.
In regards utility creatures there are a few I have tested, as mentioned
is a great Splendid reclaimation on stick, I rarely used it for the attack trigger and it normally got a bolt from
Omnath, Locus of Rage
or sacrificed to one of our many outlets, comboing this with
Titania, Protector of Argoth
Omnath, Locus of Rage
on the field is explosive. Other creatures I like but can't find space for are
, a creature + sac outlet and card draw on a body,
Green Sun's Zenith
Chord of Calling
this guy out when your sac outlets have been removed or countered to finish of a player second main phase, remember it is a may ability so can still keep enough tokens out for defense if needs be. The other option which is slightly less value but more reliable and cheaper CMC is
, this doesn't have the card draw but is an instant speed sac outlet. If I could find a space for one of them I'd include them but I haven't been able to justify the slot yet. There is also
, I used to run the latter and use it as a
I would typically do the same with
keeping an uncracked fetch in play so I can find the
when it's time to cast
or if you need a blocker at a push.
Some food for thought..

_Arra_: I think you are right about Chord of Calling . I think I might cut Burgeoning for it. Burgeoning has almost always been a disappointing card for me. The only time I actually like it is when I have Ghost Town (which will get cut too). This will allow me to add both Green Sun's Zenith and Lotus Field . Do you think this is crazy?

I also noticed you are still playing Shaman of the Forgotten Way. Will this be the cut for Springbloom Druid?

Hey VexenX, I really wouldn’t consider cutting Chord of Calling . I’ve been running Green Sun's Zenith almost solidly in this deck since it's inception right when Omnath, Locus of Rage came out and I would not underestimate our only instant speed to the battlefield tutor. I personally cut Sylvan Scrying for Elvish Reclaimer , still waiting to see if this was the correct choice but I think I value to the battlefield higher than to the hand in general even it's a little slow etc. I’d also agree with GeminiSpartanX regarding non-basic tutors. For me Traverse the Outlands is only a recent addition to the deck, I did not run it for the longest time as it was dependant on boardstate so isn't always relevant, however, that said it has been consistently strong since its inclusion in my deck. My meta's full of blue players so for me tutoring out Boseiju, Who Shelters All or Cavern of Souls is very important. If you inlcude Green Sun's Zenith then you may want to prioritise creature versions of our cards as we can tutor them into play, I for example run Sylvan Safekeeper over Lightning Greaves and had been running World Shaper too for that reason.

Hey, looks good, but consider cutting several of the high CMC creatures for more support? In my opinion you don't need the high CMC creatures such as Thantis, Savageborn, Soul of Innistrad, Whiptongue, Crash, Emissary of Grudges, Guardian, Flameblast, etc. These creatures are all lackluster compared to the other high CMC creature of the same mana costs. If this was a budget deck then sure include several of these creatures, but this isn't a budget deck therefore you don't need them.
Cards to consider adding:
- Fauna Shaman : repeatable creature tutor.
- Sylvan Safekeeper : repeatable creature protection from targeted removal.
- Orcish Lumberjack : repeatable ramp with Forests.
- Birds of Paradise
- Deathrite Shaman : graveyard hate, ramp.
- Sylvan Library
- Eternal Witness
- Tireless Tracker
- Titania, Protector of Argoth
- Lotus Cobra
- Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip: she can flip fast and the Planeswalker side is very good card advantage.
- Nature's Lore : two drop land ramp that can search for and put a Forest dual land onto the battlefield.
- Pernicious Deed
- Nissa, Vital Force : can ultimate her fast and her emblem is busted with landfall strategies.
- Blast Zone : nonland permanent destruction on a land which is repeatable with Windgrace.
- Nurturing Peatland
Cards to consider cutting:
- Crash of Rhino Beetles
- Emissary of Grudges
- Flameblast Dragon
- Loyal Guardian
- Savageborn Hydra
- Soul of Innistrad
- Thantis, the Warweaver
- Turntimber Sower
- Whiptongue Hydra
- Xantcha, Sleeper Agent
- Yavimaya Elder
- Darksteel Ingot
- Savage Twister
- Ruinous Path
- Fury Storm
- Consign to Dust
- 1x Swamp
