Trostani, Selesnya's Voice Discussion

xaerusblade on Make all the tokens, kill all the things

you need a real mana dork Llanowar Elves would do or if you can get Birds of Paradise, while llanowar mentor is kina cool but the earliest turn you can use the dork is on turn 3.

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice is also a good populate card..

Blade Splicer one of the best token generator creature along with a Restoration Angel.. and if you can put in Thragtusk the value would be good. :)

You are all right with 2 cmc I was somehow focused on Drift of Phantasms, I need to reconsider all tutors you mentioned.

Vlasiax Thank you but I think I'm good for now with ramp. But I'll keep them in mind! Beastmaster Ascension is also a good suggestion, but I think it won't survive long enough since our playgrup is very anti-enchantment, that's the reason I dont run much and it would have to survive 2-3 turns on average to give a bonus.

HobbyGamer007Absolutely no problems, comments with good suggestions are always welcome! You are more than right with Trickbind. I overlooked it's benefits over Stifle and I'd probably include it in a future update, but I don't know if I part from Disallow. Until now Arcades didn't draw as much hate as other commanders but the threat is growing. Command Beacon spiked like crazy and I just don't want to buy it for this reason. I hope for a reprint in upcoming Commander 2018. The other suggestions are not bad either but I may go with Yavimaya Hollow since land destruction is not a big deal in our playgroup, yet.

Mitrian Thank you for your suggestions. Just about two days ago I've seen a lifegain Arcades on here and I suggested him to use Trostani, Selesnya's Voice since I run her as a commander. Nonetheless I think she could be extremely hard to cast in a 3 color deck for . Also It would draw my deck in another direction and I already have a lifegain deck. As I said earlier, don't underestimate the cards which pump toughness, they win games and since it's a beatdown deck it's not important if the are at sorcery speed (besides only Steadfastness is a sorcery). But your deck sounds very fun to play and you have a lot of good synergies. I'd be more than interested to see your full decklist! Also I'm interested if you have had any issues in casting Trostani and how the overall performance of the deck is and.

I’ve been playing a similar list to this and it’s been much better than I expected. Arcades does draw a ton of hate, and as a result I’ve tweaked it to include Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves along with Enlightened Tutor.

Another couple additions I made were Angelic Chorus and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice. Both of those have done some amazing work. And then, due to their success, I also added Feed the Pack and Phyrexian Processor. Those last two may not stay, but I’m testing them now. I have once gotten the Feed the Pack and Tree of Redemption combo with Angelic Chorus on the battlefield, effectively doubling my life total and creating a ton of wolves. They were board wiped but the lifegain remained and I ended up winning largely because of it. I am also considering Aetherflux Reservoir as an alternate wincon simply because those two life gainers above synergize so well with all the cheap defenders. This does start to take the deck in another direction, but it works really well for only an investment of a couple cards.

I second the recommendation for Muddle the Mixture and would also recommend Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, and Worldly Tutor.

What to take out for all these? Always the hard part, right? It’s hard to say because everyone has different preferences, but I’m not a fan of the cards that pump defense, especially at sorcery speed. So that’s a couple of spots to start. There’s also a couple defenders in your list that I think are just a bit too weak or too much mana for their body. I think Hobby mentioned a couple of those...

I’ll try to get my full list posted here soon for more ideas if you’re interested.

If you go for lifegain you should consider Trostani, Selesnya's Voice :)

Ive wanted to build Trostani, Selesnya's Voice with PL, DS, PV and AP for awhile now. Blade of Selves could be fun in that deck too...

SynergyBuild on Garden Guard [Selesnya Token Aggro]

1 month ago

Hey, I made one of these populate decks!




A few questions:

First Question: How is this aggro?

I mean you run no 1 drops, and your fastest kill is turn 5, and that isn't super likely.

Second Question: Why 4 Temple Gardens

With Wooded Foothills or Flooded Strands, you only need 2-3 Temple Gardens for required fixing, and Horizon Canopy deserves a spot or two in this list. Also the Grove of the Guardians will never really see play unless you are in the midrange mirror against Abzan or something. Maybe sideboard them, run some Horizon Canopy, drop a Temple Garden drop in another Fetchland, call your landbase a day.

Third Question: Why no dorks?

You can up the playability of the deck with a full playset of Noble Hierarch and 2-3 Birds of Paradise

The best plays of populate lists are turn one Noble Hierarch curving into turn two Wayfaring Temple, into turn three 2xCall of the Conclave (One one Call of the Conclave and one Selesnya Charm on 2/2 token), swinging for 5 with Wayfaring Temple (4 creatures+exalted trigger), then copy a Call of the Conclave, turn 4 drop a few creatures (dorks, tokens, whatever), swing for 15, win turn 4. You can also achieve this with a hand of Intangible Virtues.

Fourth (And Final) Question: Why do you run Trostani, Selesnya's Voice?

Against Combo, or aggro, you are dead before you untap with her, against control, she will die before then, or won't resolve. To be honest, the same is true for Advent of the Wurm. With dorks, it woul be possible to untap with them, but since you don't run any they appear useless. Wilt-Leaf Liege has a similar problem, but I actually like him, because if you swing the turn you drop him, he doesn't need to untap to win a game. Otherwise I find him pretty bad, and would drop him for Dryad Militants that at least stop storm, TurboFog, or Snapcaster Mage, along with Life from the Loam, and a handful of readily played modern staples. Druid's Deliverance actually falls into this category of "cards that won't matter in modern", but I'd be lying if there wouldn't be a deck that could use it, Turbo-Fog (which is not this deck, and Turbo-Fog is normally trash).


You should really consider running some of the following: Knight of the Reliquary, Path to Exile, or Intangible Virtue, the do wonders!

personally, i would remove Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, as the deck seems to have little in the way of tokens, and it seems to be one of the few lifegain cards. as for add ins, i like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and Thalia's Lancers as a legendary tutor. i used to play a bant list similar to this using Jalira, Master Polymorphist as my secret commander, and having every non-legendary as a bomb like Worldspine Wurm and Angel of Serenity, while playing as many low-cmc legendaries as possible.

I definitely agree with your move to pull Narnam Renegade. You could switch it out for a 2 or 3 drop that's more threatening. Pulling Champion of Rhonas is probably a good idea too. For 4 mana, he seems inefficient, and an easy target for your opponent to Lightning Bolt and get a mana advantage before you can use the exert ability. Rather than have another tool for getting stuff out on top of mana ramp, you could put something really killer in that slot. Trostani, Selesnya's Voice might be good for the green-white color combo, and has good synergy with a creature deck. I would also look into Oversoul of Dusk. As for your 7+ mana cards, maybe get rid of Terastodon? I feel like your end game here is to beat down your opponent with your creatures, so giving them extra blockers might be counter-productive. I like Plated Crusher personally. The hexproof keeps it from getting picked off by cheap removal, and the trample really helps seal your end game.
