Tree of Redemption Discussion

Kay7men on Toughness Roughness

So have you also considered Tree of Perdition? With black available it becomes quite the defender beater, and its nice to run alongside Tree of Redemption.

Criticism, sure... but does it have to be constructive? Can't you just play goyfs like everybody else and be done with it?

Ethersworn Canonist and Isochron Scepter are at conflict with each other. I think you can play both in this deck, but not together. That aside, 4 Isochron Scepter is a bit much - 2 or 3 should do fine (they are card-disadvantage, at least for a couple of turns). And you really only have 1 thing to play on them: artifact destruction. Nothing else. Path to Exile, while played by everyone, would be a nice addition. It does give opponent basic lands, but in the games where you want path, it's usually better for you to exile a creature every turn, than it is for your opponent to be given a pile of basic lands (regards, a merfolk player).

Tree of Redemption is a bit underwhelming with no furter help. The life-toughness swap is permanent, so you have to go low on life, and untap with the tree in play, to set your life to 13, and only get to do so once. If it's just for the lifegain, the 3 Wurmcoil Engines should do just fine. Except... they are hard to play on 20 lands and random tron.

Urzatron is an either/or choice. You either want it, and then you play the cards to get it and build your deck around big mana, or you don't bring it at all. In your current list, you'll simply never see all 3 pieces in play at the same time. Since you play green and artifacts, Ancient Stirrings could be a really strong tutor-like card, both for urza land and for artifacts, but you should probably also bring 4 Expedition Map, if you want to assemble tron. If you go this way, you can play big-mana cards like Wurmcoil Engine, which could otherwise be very hard to ever get into play.

Mycosynth Lattice is cute. Consider what Stony Silence would do, if opponent plays that, after you have lattice in play.

Is Ghostly Prison really a maindeck card?

Enlightened Tutor is not legal in modern.

Swap a high life score (20 or more) with Tree of Redemption, then top up your 13 life back to 20 with your other life giving cards. You then have a federal reserve of 20 life, held by Tree of Redemption, ready when you need it. Oh, and it is a Defender with 20 toughness.

Suns_Champion, that coincidence is hilarious!

Timber Protector - Most Doran decks go towards Treefolk Tribal, which I'm not trying to emulate. Because of that, this deck doesn't run many Treefolk. Bastion Protector is strictly better here because of that, but I don't run either as Doran is usually left alone by targeted removal.

Tree of Redemption - Biggest issue with it is the defender, as I'm also trying to avoid most defender creatures (Hence why I don't run Axebane Guardian). I run Perdition because it has the added benefit of sucking the life out of my opponents, and Souls of the Faultless for the same reason/dissuading attacks.

Dusk / Dawn - Great card, good for removal and returning my creatures

Sylvan Caryatid - It's early ramp with a good amount of health. Great suggestion

Kin-Tree Invocation - Yes it will, most of the time, be 2 mana for an 8/8, and that's the problem. I've always had that problem with it, a lot of cards here have negative effects toward cards with high power/same p/t

Chromatic Lantern - Good idea

Also, thanks for pointing out the problem with Triumph of Ferocity, for I thought it was just an enchantment version of Abzan Beastmaster. I've since correct that mistake.

Thanks for the suggestions! Feel free to suggest more :p

Some things I like:

Elspeth, Sun's Champion - Obviously I like the inclusion but it seems like she could do some good work for you!

Meekstone - Good choice that not everyone would think about.

Some suggestions to put in:

Timber Protector - protection for your commander.

Tree of Redemption - good mana:toughness ratio.

Dusk / Dawn - goes along with Elspeth and some of your other boardwipes.

Sylvan Caryatid - really, there's no reason not too.

Kin-Tree Invocation - usually going to be a 2 mana 8/8.

Chromatic Lantern - basic color fixing/ramp that every 3 color deck needs.

Some to take out:

Obelisk Spider - not much -1/-1 synergy in this deck.

Triumph of Ferocity - this has to do with power, not toughness. All the red and green decks willl prevent you from drawing.

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice - good lifegain, but you don't have much to populate.

Hope some of this helps!

Flagellum on Big Booty Gang

Can't believe I missed Mentor of the Meek for card draw in my Doran deck. Apparently I haven't updated my deck for a while now. My deck focuses on punishing creatures based on their power. But I have a few ideas to run by you, use them as you wish:

Abzan Beastmaster: card draw

Eidolon of Rhetoric: can neuter some decks and has a nice body to boot.

Guiltfeeder: Possible evasion and can hit for 4 with Doran out. Added damage is better the longer the game goes on.

Kami of Old Stone: I don't care for vanilla critters but this one was too good to pass up

Marble Titan: another Meekstone v2.0

Necroskitter: steals opponent's critters and plays nicely with Obelisk Spider and his infect friends Priests of Norn and Tangle Angler.

Priests of Norn/Tangle Angler: See above, Also can be finishers with cards like Tower Defense ect.

Raving Dead: testing this out. Can be brutal with cards like Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa/Behind the Scenes or after a wrath effect that targets higher powered critters. It's a Quietus Spike with legs.

Sun Titan: recursion

Tree of Redemption: huge with Assault Formation or a last ditch life saver.

Noetic Scales: currently testing but probably the first thing to be cut.

Crackdown, Retribution of the Meek, Wave of Reckoning: all higher power critter punishing cards

My deck if you want more ideas:

Doran's Spring: 'Tis the Season of Big Butts

Commander / EDH Flagellum
