Ulvenwald Observer Discussion

-Disowned Ancestor, Birds of Paradise, Primal Druid, Druid of the Cowl.

+Fruit of the First Tree, Ulvenwald Observer, Aetherflux Reservoir, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim.

After playing tonight, I found there is not much card draw. I'm fresh out of Phyrexian Arenas, so the Observer is the next best thing I have.I also found I was on over 100 life for most of the night, so Ayli and Reservoir get a trial.

Love the deck name! Very befitting. My Doran build I'm working on is vastly different, but I like seeing a different deck like this for comparison. I'm thinking of trying to utilize the treefolk tribal. That said, I have a lot of non-treefolk tribal cards that aren't included here too. Here are some suggestions to give you food for thought:

Birds of Paradise, Selvala, Explorer Returned, Oketra the True, Vhati il-Dal, Vizier of the Menagerie, Seedborn Muse, Pontiff of Blight, Ulvenwald Observer, Angel of Serenity, Craterhoof Behemoth, Aven Warcraft, Foul Renewal, Eland Umbra, Spidersilk Armor, Mirari's Wake, Sight of the Scalelords and Volrath's Stronghold.

I second the suggestions for Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Abzan Beastmaster and Defense of the Heart. Survival of the Fittest also couldn't hurt. Burgeoning is another strong suggestion, gonna add that to my list of potential additions to my deck.

I need to thank you for the inspiration for me to consider Arachnogenesis and Pernicious Deed as well!

My list is much more creature-oriented, but I think Doran ought to be a creature deck first, so maybe scaling back a little of the targeted removal would be a good idea. However, I don't know who you're up against either, so perhaps you feel you need it worse than I do.

One last thing, while Eternal Witness doesn't fit Doran's little power-swap, I think it's strictly better than Skullwinder in any given situation. But that's my preference.

Dang it, I had a bunch of good suggestions, but I lost it all since it took me so long to write it all out...


The basic gist of what I wrote is that there are cards that care about having power 2 or less (1 or less in the case of Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker) like Mentor of the Meek and Reveillark and cards that care about having toughness 4 or greater like Ulvenwald Observer and Sight of the Scalelords, and that looking for creatures that fit both of those are the best type of creatures to play.

Here are the searches I used to find all the cards I suggested:

looks good so far dude :)off the top of my head, I'd add Dungrove Elder because of the massive ramp we've got going. Dauntless Dourbark because DAMN! Everbark Shaman because we ain't using the GY and DAT RAMP! Lignify for ultimate tribal trolling! Orchard Warden for insane lifegain. Rootgrapple for removal and drawpower in one spell. Treefolk Harbinger because TUTOR! and Ulvenwald Observer for more drawpower! Stay frosty dude!

I probably wouldn't worry about Tornado Elemental or Ulvenwald Observer Garruk's Packleader would put more work in and not force you to draw. The "may" is always nice. Sandsteppe Mastodon can probably go for something. I'd put one of the global tramples in over Sword of Kaldra. Plummet doesn't seem as useful as some of your options, and you've got a decent number of other things to protect against flying, so maybe that. Rampaging Baloths's spot might also be better used for a global trample, but I've never run him, so I don't know. I've never thought Joraga Treespeaker did enough for what it does (unless in a strict elf deck of course). If Outland Colossus had trample stapled, I wouldn't suggest him, but he doesn't, so he might be another option for more global trample. same goes with is Seed Guardian's token also had reach.

Those are my thoughts. Hope they help! :)

I'm also really not sure about Ulvenwald Observer. You can't abuse his effect with sacrifice shenanigans so he seems incredibly mediocre.
