Verdant Force Discussion

SynergyBuild on Yisan is running slowly.

1 month ago

$20ish Budget way to make Yisan very fast:

Add in Arbor Elf , Fyndhorn Elves , Wirewood Symbiote , Seeker of Skybreak , Temur Sabertooth , Priest of Titania , Elvish Archdruid , Boreal Druid , Devoted Druid , Great Oak Guardian , Autumn's Veil , Nature's Claim , Natural State , Caustic Caterpillar , Reclamation Sage , Desert Twister , Copperhorn Scout , Wood Elves , Somberwald Stag , Manglehorn , Marwyn, the Nurturer , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Leaf Gilder , Heart Warden , Fyndhorn Elder

Drop out Taunting Elf , Verdant Force , Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger , Wild Beastmaster , Worldspine Wurm , Pathbreaker Ibex , Mycoloth , Kamahl, Fist of Krosa , Gyre Sage , Giant Adephage , Elvish Piper , Cultivator of Blades , Bramble Elemental , Avenger of Zendikar , Tooth and Nail , See the Unwritten , Triumph of the Hordes , Overrun , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Genesis Wave , Explosive Vegetation , Zendikar Resurgent , Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Umbral Mantle , Lifecrafter's Bestiary

Total of 26 swaps.

The switches lists speed the deck up and make it win through an easy and efficient combo, all fetchable by Yisan. The combo uses Great Oak Guardian , Temur Sabertooth , and Wirewood Symbiote . With these and enough mana producing creatures, you get infinitely large creatures or with 1 more mana, infinitely large creatures and infinite mana, and untaps which can be put into Yisan to fetch Caterhoof and give the team trample.

All together, the deck will also run enough early-game interaction like Caustic Caterpillar , Manglehorn , Reclamation Sage , Natural State , Nature's Claim , the already run Lignify and Acidic Slime , and catch-alls like Desert Twister and Yisan fetchables like Somberwald Stag .

With all of this in mind, it is a little weak to removal, but with Eternal Witness and Temur Sabertooth both fetchable with Yisan, I feel it can be okay.

How does this sound?

bushido_man96 on Izoni, thousand-eyed aristocrats

1 month ago

You could switch Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip for Zendikar Resurgent. You should also consider running Fecundity. You sac a lot of creatures, and drawing cards off this would speed your deck up.

I've mentioned this before, but I feel its worth repeating. Izoni, Thousand-Eyed is a nice card, but has its drawbacks. The major drawback I see is her high CMC, which is 6. So let's say even if you are hitting ramp every turn to start the game, then you're looking at a turn 4 cast, most likely. If you really ramp hard, let's say turn one, Land drop and Sol Ring, done. Turn 2, Land drop, Dork, tap Sol Ring for let's say Ashnod's Altar. So you'd have two dorks, two lands, Sol Ring and Altar after two awesome turns to start turn three. I think hitting this kind of setup consistently will be difficult to do. And then there's the fact that you likely don't have anything in the graveyard to make Izoni worth casting yet, if your goal is utilizing the Undergrowth mechanic. And then, you likely want to use the Undergrowth mechanic more often throughout the game, and hopefully scaling it with the game, giving you more tokens each time you cast her. But the next cast is 8 CMC, then 10 CMC, and so on with Commander tax. Its a tough sell. Or, you build up the graveyard and hope for one big haul on her first casting, and then go from there, dredging and pitching and sacrificing creatures to the bin in order to get a good ROI. This makes her more situational than anything, and do you want your Commander to be situational, or the centerpiece of what your deck does?

What I think you should consider is focusing more on her second ability, which is card draw and sac outlet on a stick. Focus that with the Aristocrats strategy, and worry about Undergrowth as a secondary measure. Cards like Mycoloth will work great with this, and another peach you could consider running is Deranged Hermit. He'll give you four squirrels each time he hits the board, which is more fodder for the Aristocrats and for Izoni. Verdant Force, Tendershoot Dryad, and Verdant Embrace all generate more tokens for your saccing pleasure. An Elvish Piper can help you in the mid to late game when you start trying to bounce Izoni with Temur Sabertooth or Erratic Portal.

So the token strategy will help set up the Aristocrats theme of the deck. Now you don't have to be quite so creature-heavy to start the game. You can play selective creatures that sac themselves in the early game (Sakura-Tribe Elder, Burnished Hart, Yavimaya Elder, Blood Pet, Blood Vassal, Caustic Caterpillar, etc) and your dredge creatures to help set up the mid game when you want to start using Izoni multiple times. Meren of Clan Nel Toth hitting the board would be huge in the mid to late game, especially if you can protect her. I've mentioned in the past that I'd just rather play Meren as the commander, and let Izoni be a support card, but Izoni can work, with the proper approach and a bit more care. I hope this helps

Also Sporecrown Thallid,Tendershoot Dryad,Slimefoot, the Stowaway,Thallid,Verdant Force,and Saproling Migration. (If I were you I would make this be a saproling sacrafice deck)

Some suggestions Verdant Force although big, you should be able to get enough mana as it makes tokens on every upkeep. Tendershoot Dryad is another one I would definitely recommend to add as the ascend trigger is super easy to go off from. Thelonite Hermit is another good one. Thallid Soothsayer is a bit slow but it gives card draw and goes with the theme. Mold Shambler is like a bad Reclamation Sage but goes with theme. Nemata, Grove Guardian is an interesting dude as he gives a worldly buff when going for the kill.

Hope these may help!

Sage of Hours for infinite turns, and maybe try finding more ways to generate little 1/1's beyond elves. Having a ton of overpowered mana dorks doesn't do you any good. So maybe try adding Verdant Force and Invisible Stalker to synergy with Ezuri a little more.

Biggest ones I have to suggest: Jade Mage and Reassembling Skeleton. They're monsters. 2 mana for 1 sacrifice? Yes, PLEASE! Ant Queen is also good, similar, and a bigger body.

However if that is not enough- which I'll assume it's not- Artifact Mutation is freaking delicious. Bitterblossom is a staple. Creakwood Liege also pumps the majority of your deck. Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast is also decent removal and his ult is insane. Descent of the Dragons could be an alternate wincon. Dragonlair Spider looks like garbage but can get out of hand in a hurry. Druid's Call is honestly insane, it's a great deterrent for blockers. Elemental Mastery is the best. Feral Incarnation, because it has convoke, is not so bad either. Necrogenesis is classic. Ogre Slumlord is a baller and a great rattlesnake. Plague of Vermin is a really nice way to put some damage in on your opponents, especially if the political atmosphere is good. Rampaging Baloths is craaazy. Sprouting Thrinax has served me well. Sylvan Offering can make some friends AND some tokens. Verdant Embrace and Verdant Force are good. Wolfcaller's Howl is good I think?

Crayak on tokens 2.0

3 months ago

Hoi,

Deck ziet er goed uit, er zitten nog veel kaarten in die ik ondertussen gemist heb. :D Ik vind zelf de average cmc best hoog. Ik denk dat je daardoor misschien niet vaak de ability van rhys kan gebruiken. Mana doubles zoals Mirari's Wake en Zendikar Resurgent gaan daarom zeker helpen. Song of Freyalise is zeker een goede additie. Cryptolith Rite werkt net zo. Harvest Season laat je land in play leggen voor alles wat tapped is. Deze kaart combo-ed goed met convoke kaarten of de kaarten hieronder die er voor kunnen zorgen dat je minder snel wordt geswarmed door opponents. Harvest Season is al beter dan cultivate als je 2 tapped creatures hebt.

Carddraw in wit-groen tokens is ook iets makkelijker geworden met bijv. Huatli, Radiant Champion en Camaraderie. (De goedkoopste opties heb je al Mentor of the Meek en Skullclamp.) Andere duurdere opties zijn Collective Unconscious en Regal Force. Shamanic Revelation kost weer wat minder en geeft je ook nog leven voor de grotere creatures. Deze kaart werkt best goed met de worms en angels in het deck.

Het deck mag wel iets meer removal draaien. Hoeveel manieren heb je om creatures/permanents weg te halen? Een suggestie is o.a. Aura Mutation. Ik vind dit ontzettend sterke removal gezien de value die je haalt uit deze instant van 2 mana. Citywide Bust is nieuwe mass removal voor token decks.

Eldrazi Monument maakt je creatures indestructible en laat ze vliegen. Dat laat ze makkelijker doorkomen bij opponents. Bovendien biedt het bescherming tegen de boardwipes die je ook zelf draait. Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist maakt het ook makkelijker om door te komen en voorkomt dat mensen je gaan swarmen. Shalai, Voice of Plenty biedt je ook bescherming tegen sources met single targets. Die kan je overwegen, maar ik vind 'm hier niet super goed.

Concordant Crossroads geeft alles wat in play komt haste. Dit werkt goed in je token deck, maar werkt helaas ook op opponents. Ook Akroma's Memorial geeft je creatures haste en maakt het makkelijker om ze door te laten komen. De haste enables werken ontzettend goed met de Goldnight Commander of Cathars' Crusade die in je deck zitten. En ook met Divine Visitation hieronder.

Divine Visitation doet op zichzelf niets maar maakt wel flying 4/4 angels van al de tokens die in play komen. Dit bufft je tokens en maakt je betere blockers en laat ze ook makkelijker doorkomen.

Tendershoot Dryad is naar mijn mening veel beter dan Verdant Force die nu in je deck zit. Deze kost 3 mana minder en kan je saprolings ook nog buffen. Speel 'm na Aura Mutation en/of Mycoloth en je kan meteen voor veel slaan met de saprolings. Je kan natuurlijk ook nogsteeds beide spelen.

Thunderfoot Baloth is goed in het buffen van creatures. Maar hiervoor zijn ook andere goede opties te vinden.

March of the Multitudes vind ik in dit deck beter dan Chord of Calling al kan je daarmee o.a. Craterhoof Behemoth uitzoeken. Het nadeel is dan wel dat je creatures getapped hebt liggen. Als je veel met convoke en/of kaarten als Song of Freyalise speelt dan zou ik ook Paradox Engine in het deck doen. Met de song kan je hiermee al je non-lands uit je hand casten. Als je nog 'n steady carddraw hebt met Mentor of the Meek of huatli's emblem dan kan je je hele deck in play leggen. Buiten dat is deze ook sterk want het geeft je de mogelijkheid om met alles aan te vallen iedere beurt. Buiten convoke en de Cryptolith Rite effecten heb je nog Glare of Subdual die ontzettend goed werk heeft geleverd in mijn ghave deck. Best wel een aanrader. Je tapt 'n mannetje en voorkomt dat je aangevallen word door grote threats. Deze werkt ook goed met Paradox Engine of Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

Impervious Greatwurm kan je mid to late game voor goedkoop casten. Deze dikzak is moeilijk weg te halen maar heeft helaas geen trample dus komt ook moeilijk door zonder 'n Eldrazi Monument ofzo.

Anointed Procession is de witte Parallel Lives die is uitgekomen. Naud kent 'm ook.

The Immortal Sun is in dit deck beter als Staff of Nin al kan je ze beide prima spelen. Het helpt je bovendien bij het casten van kaarten en bufft meteen ook al je mannetjes. Het werkt ook tegen planeswalkers van opponents en helaas werkt deze ook tegen de planeswalkers in je eigen deck waar je op moet letten.

Flower / Flourish is zowel vroeg als late game prima.

Nogmaals, het deck heeft zeker goede potential. Rhys blijft squishy maar is zeker niet de grootste threat op het bord. Kaarten die ik uit je deck zou halen zijn Acidic Slime, Armada Wurm,Hydra Broodmaster en Verdant Force die naar mijn mening te veel mana kosten voor wat ze doen. Karametra, God of Harvests werkt helaas alleen op creatures die je cast en niet op je tokens. Omdat je weinig creatures hebt zal ik 'm er uit laten.

Descend upon the Sinful is ook te duur en laat je alles verliezen ondanks de kaarten die je creatures indestructible kunnen maken. Ik zou het laten bij de removal wat destroyed ipv exiled. Er zijn nog nieuwe kaarten uitgekomen die al je creatures indestructible maken voor de turn. Ik heb ze niet genoemd maar ze kunnen erg sterk zijn samen met de boardwipes die je zelf speelt of de boardwipes van opponents.

Also Command Tower. Poison-Tip Archer to double Slimefoot's damage; Deathspore Thallid as to freely sacrifice your tokens for a win; Verdant Force, Sporemound for more tokens (Sprout Swarm is repeatable with buyback); Thelonite Hermit and Verdeloth the Ancient to pump you tokens. Necrogenesis against reanimator decks. You can see more suggestions in https://edhrec.com/commanders/slimefoot-the-stowaway under "Signature Cards" and "Top Cards".
