Troll Ascetic Discussion

minionmasher, depends on what you mean.
When an aura enters the battlefield, it enters enchanting a legal permanent of your choice; otherwise, auras would just be sacrificed on ETB (i.e. getting back Pacifism with Starfield of Nyx allows you to slap Pacifism on any dude). Of note, this gets around targeting restrictions, as auras ONLY target on the stack, so using the above trick allows you to Pacify a Troll Ascetic. If you want more clarification, I'd recommend reading up on the rulings for Starfield of Nyx. That'll explain it for you, or epoch wrote up an explanation in the Rules Q&A a few years back that is the first result on google when searching "starfield of nyx and pacifism."
So, if you think curses are put on you, that is not correct; they are put on a player of your choice who does not currently have protection from the color of that aura. Does that make sense?

Some cheap cards I can think of off the top of my head that might be worth getting for this deck would be Arcanum Wings, Wild Defiance, Mask of Avacyn, Jhessian Infiltrator, Troll Ascetic and of course Slippery Bogle. Sigil of Sleep also pairs well with Invisible Stalker.

You could have more success with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Collected Company, and scaled 3 mana green creatures as a green aggro deck. You could still use the dryads that way as early game damage but with those added cards you could have the steam to end games before turn 6 or 7. In the world of modern it would still be relatively budget friendly too. The fetchlands you have in the deck cost more collectively than those suggestions. Leatherback Baloth, Silhana Ledgewalker, Troll Ascetic, and Sacred Wolf in a collected company deck with Old-Growth Dryads, Predator's Strike, Predator Ooze, Vines of Vastwood, and Rancor would be a very intense aggro deck.
Just a thought, but the added power and hexproof would really boost the potency.

Protection is Spellskite & Troll Ascetic's ability to regenerate. I don't expect this deck to be competitive, & I pretty much put it together as a way to try to play the janky Sunbond combo lol. I want to try to get it going in casual play. I figured a good alternative target for it would be Troll Ascetic, & he is a good sword-wielder, so i put a Godsend in there. If I wanted to make the deck actually good, I would definitely cut Sunbond & Troll Ascetic/Godsend, put in 4x Path to Exile, focus more on ramping & 3x Archangel of Thune, maybe 4x, and put in maybe a Grand Abolisher or two, and definitely 4x Chord of Calling. My whole purpose here is to try to build a casual deck using Sunbond.

Also, it would be a whole different deck, but instead of a control shell, you could go bant. You'd then get Presence of Gond, and you could play Geist of Saint Traft, Thrun, the Last Troll or Troll Ascetic, or even Sylvan Caryatid as hexproof creatures to just put the presence on. You could also play Beck / Call and draw a million cards when you make all the tokens.

Lotleth Troll and Troll Ascetic are just begging to be in a Varolz deck. Also, If you can afford it, Mesmeric Orb is a great mill card to try and get your critters in grave. Sure, It can hurt you late game, but if you're seeing late game, then you haven't done your job right. I am also a huge fan of Nyx Weaver in any self mill deck, as it can save some key cards. On that note, more options (some non-budget than others) include Life from the Loam, Entomb, and Eternal Witness, Nether Traitor, Tormented Soul, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, and Primal Rage.
