Thornweald Archer Discussion

Bulldawg1310 on Go Elf Yourself

WiltLeafElves like I said on your page, when I built this deck I didn't use it to be competitive so my casual-esque games were full of dragons and spirits, so yeah I had a sideboard full of flyers. Im keeping the plummets in there as a just in case situation. I will switch to the Thornweald Archer though. im not seeing the point of scavenging ooze? do you think I should just cut the plummets and add Relic of Progenitus? my meta is full of death shadow.

the changes look good, but a few things: get rid of the spider, and use Thornweald Archer. You could also cut it to 2 and not 3 so you have room for a Scavenging Ooze.

Yeah, silver bullets do go against the strategy, but it should be fine for you, since you have enough coco and chords.

Is your meta full of flyers? most of your sideboard earlier seemed to be directed against fliers, and a third of your sideboard is still against them.

I quite like Nightshade Peddler and it's interaction with tokens. Maybe some more Peddlers & Brindle Shoat or Sprout Swarm over Thornweald Archer? One suggestion.

How do you like the deck so far? The Rancor + deathtouch interaction looks fun too; worth pointing out it in the description. Hope it plays well and you have fun with it!

More random thoughts - any cool first strike granters? Another color suggestion might be red for both first strike and natural pingers to go with Nightshade Peddler. Say Thornscape Apprentice for first strike and the almighty Sparksmith for pinging.

first wave of cuts: Unbridled Growth does literally nothing in mono-green, Prophetic Prism same reason, Karametra's Favor don't need. also anything that is giving you energy you dont need it. unless you have some pay off for energy there is no point in running those

things to add (this is a long list so obviously just pick things up as you can. also not all of this will fit in but this is all good stuff):Arbor Elf, Allosaurus Rider, Birchlore Rangers, Bow of Nylea, Cultivate, Devoted Druid, Drove of Elves, Druid of the Cowl, Eladamri, Lord of Leaves, Elvish Archdruid, Elvish Champion, Elvish Harbinger, Elvish Mystic, Elvish Promenade, Elvish Vanguard, Everglove Courier, Explosive Vegetation, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Fyndhorn Elder, Gaea's Herald, Gladehart Cavalry, Glissa Sunseeker, Greatbow Doyen, Green Sun's Zenith, Greenweaver Druid, Gyre Sage, Heritage Druid, Harmonize, Hunting Triad, Immaculate Magistrate, Imperious Perfect, Joraga Treespeaker, Joraga Warcaller, Llanowar Elves, Llanowar Mentor, Lys Alana Bowmaster, Lys Alana Huntmaster, Masked Admirers, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Norwood Priestess, Nullmage Shepherd, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Priest of Titania, Realm Seekers, Reclamation Sage, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary, Tajuru Preserver, Talara's Battalion, terrastodon, Thornweald Archer, Titania's Chosen, Viridian Shaman, Wellwisher, Wildslayer Elves, Winnower Patrol, Wirewood Elf, Wren's Run Packmaster, Yeva, Nature's Herald

(takes giant breath)

yeah.. its a lot of stuff. I got a little carried away.. also this is not a budgeted list of suggestions. you will need some of the $3-10 cards to make elves a serious threat.

Elvish Harbinger?

it can help you find an elf you're looking for.

also, for sideboard, Creeping Corrosion, Spellskite, Gaea's Herald.

this is nice, +1 just because its an elf tribal, you might want to grab an additional copy of Elvish Archdruid.

instead of glissa, if you just need a deathtouch, then Thornweald Archer.

where is the black removal lol your black is like only shaman of the pack

because you're in black, you may as well add the removal that come with it (which is why green white elves is a popular choice), such as Dismember, Fatal Push, Abrupt Decay, and Doom Blade etc.

by your definition of nissa vastwood seer being too slow, i don't see how nissa revane makes it into the deck. The life gaining is exactly the same as dwynen, and 4 mana for a random 2/3 elf when you could've just had another dwynen isn't that good.

if you want, you can take a look at my mono green elf tribal, sELFish Nissa.

admizell i have 3 copies of nissa, vastwood seer, they usually become forest tutors instead of flipping, more of a sideboard card if i need something that gives me lands instead of tapping for mana (mana dorks can just get bolted, pushed, pathed, dead some other way,) so a reliable land (unless countered) is nice (elf tribal is low on land).

MoFi on A stupid question?

Let's say I have a Thornweald Archer equipped with a Viridian Longbow. I tap the Archer to deal 1 damage to a creature, which kills that creature. Now, if I were able to then untap the Archer and attack with it...would it now be a 1/1 or still a 2/1 until end of turn?

WiltLeafElves on Yisan, Alluring Bard

This is really nice, maybe put in Thornweald Archer, deathtouch and reach is nice. Also, if your Yisan abilities let him survive long enough, you could go up to 9, which has stuff like Void Winnower, Artisan of Kozilek, Colossus of Sardia, etc. oh, also for 8, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is nice. and for 10 cmc, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, for 11, Darksteel Colossus, for 12, Blightsteel Colossus, for 13, Emrakul, the Promised End, for 14, i have no idea lol, for 15, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, and lastly, for 16, Draco. I would'nt recommend actually going up to 16, maybe stop at 10 ish.
