Sylvan Scrying Discussion

bomb_arie on [Momir Vig] Suprise Party 3.0

Thanks for your comment hkhssweiss. Might try out a few of your suggestions. Two of them were allready in my 'Maybe-List' Nature's Claim and Crop Rotation . Pulling out Gaea's Cradle is such a blast that I am also considering Sylvan Scrying .

SamsWrath on Cats in Steel

A few options you have that could help are: Auriok Steelshaper , Oreskos Explorer and Shalai, Voice of Plenty . They aren't cats but, they would have good synergy with your overall deck construction.

Another great choice for a tribal deck is Coat of Arms .

It never hurts to have more creature tutors--especially in a tribal deck. A few you might consider are: Recruiter of the Guard , Eladamri's Call , Enlightened Tutor , Idyllic Tutor , Altar of Bone , Green Sun's Zenith , Sylvan Tutor and Summoner's Pact .

If you want to go faster you'll need to get more lands out fast and/or mana rocks. That's where green comes in. White has a few spells like Land Tax , Tithe and Oreskos Explorer but, green has stuff like: Burgeoning , Carpet of Flowers , Exploration Utopia Sprawl , Wild Growth , Land Grant , Crop Rotation , Sylvan Scrying , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Birds of Paradise and Bloom Tender .

Other options for going faster are: Chrome Mox , Grim Monolith , Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Mox Amber , Mox Diamond and Mox Opal .

Its also not a bad idea to toss in a few more instant-speed removal spells such as: Swords to Plowshares , Wear Away , Sundering Growth , Nature's Claim , Naturalize , Natural State , Dispatch , Disenchant , Afterlife , Beast Within , Crib Swap and Oblation .

NoOneOfConsequence on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

If there were any creatures with a Sylvan Scrying effect when they etb'd, then you could also get Tolaria West, but, of course, if any such creatures existed, I'm pretty sure we'd have heard of them in other formats by now.

On a side note, Veteran Explorer (one of my favorite cards from legacy) might be worth playing in a Vannifar deck, at least if you play enough basics (and it's a two-color deck, so I'd hope you would, unless you want to be super-competitive and then get blown out by blood moon).

SamsWrath on Sisay

Why no Paradox Engine? Mox Opal is another excellent Legendary to grab with Sisay. Tithe, Crop Rotation and Sylvan Scrying can help you tutor Plains. Land Grant is an awesome way to grab a Forest for free if you don't have any lands in hand.

For some ideas, you can check out my Sisay deck here: Captain Sisay - Legendary Combo

Polybius on I Got 99 Lands and Child Ain't One

Very cool idea, +1 from me!

As soon as I saw your list a few neat ideas came to mind:

Man lands are awesome but I think having plenty of other ways to turn your lands into beefy creatures is important too.

I’d also go with plenty of ramp spells, which in this deck is basically cheating free creatures into play. Nature's Lore, Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, Sylvan Scrying and Crop Rotation are all great options.

Chopwood on They See Myr Rollin' - They Hatin'

GoblinsBeatElves Thank you! One can always remove some of the utility lands and splash green for Ancient Stirrings and maybe Sylvan Scrying. It probably better in the sense that it's more competitive and will result in a more reliable tron assembly, but it is a little bit of theme.

hkhssweiss on Tasigur's Combo Buddies!!!!

No problem FLATSO99! Always happy to help people refine their decks!

Hmm, you can keep the Maze of Ith combo in, my only problem with the Blue Sun's Zenith way of winning is that you shuffle it back in upon resolution, so you would have to use Tasigur's ability to mill it in grave after again. I would actually suggest swapping over BSZ for Stroke of Genius, lighter on the triple blue requirement making it more easily splashable as well as easier to access in grave after infinite mana.

Keeping in Tooth and Nail with Deadeye/Drake combo is also fine.

The tutors that you listed, Diabolic Revelation is a good budget tutor, mana intensive but it works. I am not a fan of Fleshwrither and Rhystic Tutor, the former is too slow, and the former is meh. It's a win more card and you would rather run Mastermind's Acquisition over it. Long-Term Plans is a great budget tutor that lets you do much more things since it can synergize with SBT ability. Beseech the Queen is another tutor that is quite cheap, and might be better depending on y

If you decide to keep in the Maze of Ith combo, there is alternative budget tutors you can get for it like Sylvan Scrying and Crop Rotation.

So far it looks like a clean budget list, what do you feel is missing when playing your deck? The way I help people is going off on what do they feel is missing and recommend cards that can strengthen their deck :P
