Traproot Kami Discussion

TheVectornaut on Gardenwalls

Unfortunately, Wall of Blossoms is yet to see a modern reprint. That said, cantrip walls are fantastic and I'd recommend playing the full 4 of Carven Caryatid and maybe more Abzan Beastmaster too. I also love Traproot Kami in a mono green deck and I'd run the playset to curve into Overgrown Battlement more often. I don't know how you feel about infinite combos but Umbral Mantle is a relatively easy way to get infinite mana to go nuts with something like Genesis Wave or even Banefire.

TheVectornaut on Walls Strike Back (Sub $30)

2 months ago

I run a mono-green wall deck with my win condition being Genesis Wave off of Umbral Mantle + Axebane Guardian or Overgrown Battlement. Besides Assault Formation, Colossus of Akros and Feed the Pack are strong finishers. Blue also has Freed from the Real which is pretty nice and red has Banefire. One card I'd suggest for any green defender list is Carven Caryatid. It ups your defender count while replacing itself, unlike a more vanilla wall like Wall of Tanglecord. If your meta is slow enough, Traproot Kami might be an alternative to Wall of Vines as well.

For the sideboard, I really like Sheltering Word since it slows down burn and protects against single-target removal.

I love this deck. it's probably possible to make a fairly budget version, which I love even more :p . With the number of 'anthem' type effects and aggro approach you could probably do with some cheaper creatures regardless - Tasseled Dromedary and the like. There are loads of 1 white mana 0/4s that would make for a very interesting and more consistent turn 3 attack. other nice buffs like Shield Wall would also work well with this. some other plain old walls would also work well with an 'early game' approach if you threw in a little more 'defender' removing stuff. Things like Abzan Beastmaster could help you keep some cards in hand. If you're liking the life gain, Angelic Chorus and maybe even Genju of the Fields could be interesting. Colfenor's Urn seems like it would be worth having. Diamond Valley in an emergency, Proper Burial, maybe with Fruit of the First Tree. If you need tokens, Korozda Guildmage's your gal. Scourge of Skola Vale, Sight of the Scalelords, Sentinel, Sworn Defender, Traproot Kami, and Tree of Redemption could also be fun :)

SmugLookingBarrel on Can traproot Kami block Elven ...

3 months ago

Traproot Kami reads that it may block as though it had flying, but the oracle text says that is has reach. certain creatures, like Elven Riders can't be blocked except by creatures that specifically have flying, and not reach, so can Traproot Kami block them?

If your favorite creature type is walls you can use defenders for your ramp in here by using low cost walls/defenders such as Steel Wall, Traproot Kami, Jaddi Offshoot, Wall of Vines, Wall of Roots, and Sylvan Caryatid to develop a board and play Overgrown Battlement or Axebane Guardian to generate your mana. That way you can have your two favorite creature types in one deck and it can still be viable and effective.

I would definitely recommend splashing green for this, because you gain access to ramp cards such as Axebane Guardian and Overgrown Battlement. You have to add more creatures in to support it but if you add one drop defenders like Steel Wall, Jaddi Offshoot, or Traproot Kami you should have no problem dropping Tree of Perdition on turn three. Triskaidekaphobia is also a great secondary win condition to consider. Maralen of the Mornsong and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is a bit more complicated to pull off but something to think about since Maralen can search for any key component to a combo that you may need and then you can drop an Ob Nixilis on a turn that you decrease your opponent to 13 life with Tree of Perdition, pass the turn to them, and watch them lose 13 life by searching through their library.

Blanchwood Armor could be a good way to go Voltron with a creature and wreck someone. Dungrove Elder can also get huge fast with this deck, so can Kalonian Twingrove and Uktabi Wildcats.

Gaea's Touch can help you get more of your land on the battlefield fast. Horn of Greed can help you replace land you've played with more, just keep in mind that it is only land you 'play,' not 'put on the battlefield.' So it wouldn't combo directly with Gaea's Touch, but it will with any other land drops.

Azusa, Lost but Seeking can also help you play more lands in a single turn.

Genesis Wave can make your boardstate swell at almost any point in the game, but works best when used once your ramp is petering out. Patron of the Orochi also lets you untap all your Forests and green creatures once a turn (even on your opponent's turn.)

Traproot Kami has very inexpensive CMC, and can prove to be a very good blocker for you at any point in the game.
