Traverse the Ulvenwald Discussion

You could try bigger delve creatures like Tasigur, the Golden Fang or Gurmag Angler as your top end, they're hard to kill with most common removal and can close games quickly. Some amount of Path to Exile seems important since you can't get rid of anything over 4 mana otherwise. Ghost Quarter is a good way to hit utility/tron lands or disrupt greedy mana bases that can get lands into the graveyard for free, you could lean further into the disruptive side with Leonin Arbiter also since you aren't playing fetches (not counting the Evolving Wilds since they can be swapped in some number for the Ghost Quarters) and Traverse the Ulvenwald is the only thing it conflicts with. Maybe try some extra silver bullet creatures also in the SB like Kataki, War's Wage and Eidolon of Rhetoric, they can swap spots for similar stuff already there and would synergize with traverse. Lots of your lands can enter tapped also, maybe try some painlands? The shocks are also being reprinted and should be easy to get a hold of soon. Seems like a fun deck to play!

Traverse the Ulvenwald should be less of a build around with only a few copies instead of a playset so Mishra's Bauble shouldn't be needed. It can just be a way to find a color you need early or find the creature to win later. Young Pyromancer is just personal taste, I'm not into the not optional life loss when you're trying to play a long game.

Those are two cards I was greatly considering running in beginning versions of the deck. Young Pyromancer is obviously super good in a style deck like this, but I valued the card advantage of Dark Confidant more, but maybe Pyromancer is correct. Traverse the Ulvenwald is good too, but I feel like Id have to find room for Mishra's Baubles too if I ran that package. Thanks for ideas vomitpile, definitely gonna consider those more greatly now!

Young Pyromancer seems pretty good in some amount, maybe over the Goblin Rabblemaster or Dark Confidant. Traverse the Ulvenwald would be pretty powerful as maybe a 2-of since delirium shouldn't be too hard with the different card types and lets you toolbox more. Seems like a cool mixture of traditional jund and the newer mardu pyromancer. I've been brainstorming a jund Life from the Loam deck that is trying to do the same thing, but taking the control route instead of aggressive threats with disruption, so other end of the combination.

Guided Passage Surprising fun card, but a no go in this deck
Traverse the Ulvenwald I like it, but need the room for something else
Bloodbraid Elf I am a fan, but in the new build it just hits too many cards
Clever Impersonator I am a big fan and he will return, but not right now
Fatespinner I like this card a lot, but lacks aggression in this deck
Feldon of the Third Path He will probably return, but for now I need slots for testing
Sakura-Tribe Elder Normally an auto include when I play green, but want to try something else
Thrummingbird Was a good card in the first build, but with the changes I think he will lose much of his value in the deck
Treasure Keeper but thinking hard about this one. With the new build he seems less productive
Venser, Shaper Savant I like this card and always will, but right now a no go
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger for now a no go, too much mana and with the new idea’s just out of the range I want to go. Maybe in fase three

Hey there! Thanks for the vote, I'm interested in working more on this deck.
A transformative SB is actually a fantastic idea that I wouldn't mind exploring... Interesting.
I don't like Stitcher's Supplier in this deck; swapping for Bomat Courier is more my style. Courier can kill itself, gives Haste to Soulflayer if in the yard, and is still useful in the mid game whereas Supplier simply isn't. Once you have a flayer, Supplier just doesn't do much. Bomat lets you select when you want to put cards into the yard, which I like. Bomat also gives another card type for Traverse the Ulvenwald.
I think a different build could perhaps maximize Supplier, but as of now, it isn't the build that tickles my fancy the most.

Yeah, the Boros deck didn't do anything for me. It's not a good deck. It has good cards, but they're all too narrow and the deck will draw the wrong cards at the wrong time. I've made a few more Traverse the Ulvenwald decks, but I'm building them wrong. It's all a learning process.
I didn't think of Smuggler's Copter for this. That's actually perfect. I need to remove something that this deck is trying to do. It probably wants 24 lands, which leaves 36 nonlands, many of which are best as 4-ofs.
I really really want to play a Bitterblossom deck. Not in paper, but I want to brew one up. I also want to learn why so many people love Dark Confidant because playing grixis I always have a way to kill it, so I never see it work.
What should I remove? I don't want to remove the creatures because then it's just a dedicated BW Token deck, and those aren't great.

What about Esper Creatures? Thoughtseize into Tidehollow Sculler into Spell Queller or Vendilion Clique sounds kinda dumb but fun. It would definitely need a way to keep its creatures alive, which is no small task. Zealous Persecution also seems decent in modern right now.
Otherwise I still want to tune my Mardu Nahiri Control deck. Sugar-free Oreos.
My other current fixation is Traverse the Ulvenwald. Unfortunately I'm convinced any Traverse deck also needs 6/7 Tarmogoyfs, which are expensive. Still could be a fun brew. Currently looking at 12-Cat and RUG Delver as my current ideas.
Naya Traverse could also work. I'd probably try to build it like a Maverick deck from legacy. I'll try that out too.
