Tendershoot Dryad Discussion

ZapatasBlood on Our Lady of Guadalupe

Hmmm, I like Tendershoot Dryad, but the 5 cmc is making me unsure. I gotta think about it, thanks Bloopsy.

So I tried playing around with double strike effects before, and it didn't work out as well as I liked Homelessguy. I am totally gonna add Huatli tho, but I'll probably take out something more expensive.

The number one issue I run into while playing this deck is that I always run out of cards in hand, and I ALWAYS want more card draw, so even tho Harmonize is a one-shot, I wanna have every piece of card draw I can get.

This deck seems like it really wants Tendershoot Dryad for the saproling lord and token generation.

:D!! Kizmetto thanks so much for the suggestions youve really made my day ive been hoping for some feedback for a long time now. I like the idea of changing 2 of the Scattered Groves but I think ill playtest to see how they feel i like the idea of cycling in order to hit key pieces. The meta of my LGS seems to be all the OP control decks ie B/U and U/W as well as the new Grixis energy :/

As for removal Ive opted to keeping it limited in my mainboard because I want the game to finish as fast as possible. That being said Renegade Rallier hits Baffling End when revolt triggers so that might be a interesting cantrip to explore as I refine the decks gameplan

Id really like to run some Angel of Invention but after that GPG deck won the PT theyve become so damn expensive. Ive also considered Tendershoot Dryad for control match ups

Tendershoot Dryad would probably be really good

@mindness I would suggest Aetherflux Reservoir maybe some Gideon of the Trials. In the sideboard I woulld definately throw some Crook of Condemnation, Negate, Baffling End. I also think green has some great lifegain tools for the mid game if you are looking to make it to approach. Gift of Paradise, Hour of Promise puts up blockers, Nissa, Nature's Artisan I would only run one copy of that if any, but at that point you would probably want Nissa, Vital Force. Tendershoot Dryad makes tokens.

Is Tendershoot Dryad in here as a win condition?

Opal Palace is good for this commander

You need more player interaction too, it seems like you're playing singleplayer EDH. You need to get more targeted removal. Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Malicious Affliction, Bone Splinters, Putrefy and Anguished Unmaking are all good, but there are probably a few in green and white that I missed. Run Abzan Charm

Read the Bones is an amazing draw card.

Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist can get a lot of work done.

Cryptolith Rite is really good when you have a lot of creatures.

You also may want to look at Contagion Engine, Contagion Clasp and proliferate cards in general. Those can be fun.

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice will win games

Also, look at cards that give you life when creatures enter the battlefield, like Healer of the Pride.

Tendershoot Dryad, Mycoloth, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Winding Constrictor.

Laurus, sorry I missed Tendershoot Dryad. As for what to cut idk. I'm at work so I'd need to wait until I'm off so I can take a better look at it.
