Verdant Rebirth Discussion

You might want to consider playing Warrior tribal instead of Human tribal. Your key Glory-Bound Initiate, Devoted Crop-Mate and Metallic Mimic all still work as intended. The upside is that you can play Oketra's Monument and buff the tokens. The monument is probably one of the strongest cards for a deck like this, and giving the tokens +2/+2 or something would be insane. You also buff the tokens from Oketra the True.

Consider replacing Verdant Rebirth with Heroic Intervention and Blossoming Defense. Popular removal like Vraska's Contempt and Magma Spray does not get stopped by verdant rebirth. It also loses you a lot of tempo since you have to replay the cards. This deck can go very wide so protecting the entire board with one card feels amazing.

Lastly, you are running a lot of green sources. You have plenty of good dual lands and all of your creatures are white. Keep one forest in case of Settle the Wreckage (a card you should watch out for btw) or Field of Ruin. You don't have a single green creature so running Unclaimed Territory end up looking a little silly since it at best says : Add to your mana pool.

Cool deck overall, and I hope you have success with it. Please crush some of those grixis builds will ya? ;)

Skinken i agree with You, however i still want to some degree keep the idea. The Verdant Rebirth was mostly for saccing the Weaponcraft Enthusiast and drawing a card

To be honest, I no longer see the point in running forests at all. You have treasures AND Blooming Marshes to splash for vraska, and Verdant Rebirth does not seem worth splashing green for. Are you running low on cards very often or why exactly is it better than running 4x Supernatural Stamina to just redeploy. Blossoming Defense seems sweet in the sideboard however.

Let me make a proposal: cut marshes and forests, add Aether Hubs and Spire of Industry. With plenty of treasure you now have a 5-color mana base. Run base black, but now you can splash for all that your heart desires. A few examples: Hidden Stockpile, Tezzeret the Schemer, The Scarab God, Unlicensed Disintegration, Brass's Bounty, Nicol Bolas, God-Pharoah and I could go on. Unlimited possibilities. Again, its just an option, its your deck, and if you would rather have that nature vs machine flavor, by all means go ahead.

Argy the synergy I was referring to was using Verdant Rebirth on Vizier of Deferment to get the ability twice. But now I'm seeing it's other uses. I was looking at this ability as if you would only use it on your opponents creatures, but I guess it can be used as a way to protect an important creature you have, or to untap a creature if it's what you needed in that final push.

skulstads I think the Emissary of Sunrise is a much better card than the other two you mentioned. Oketra's Attendant just seems bad in most ways and doesn't do anything for your deck, and Vizier of the True, while good against decks that play a decent amount of creatures, is just a vanilla 3/2 against non-creature matchups. The Emissary can draw you a land, or filter cards, while still being decent against creature decks thanks to the first strike.

As for Gideon of the Trials, he could be a sideboard piece against control. If you're playing against second sun, they can't win using their main condition. Control decks right now also seem to be using a few big creatures to shut out games, which Gideon's +1 ability takes care of.

Verdant Rebirth does not synergise with Vizier of Deferment, as the Creature doesn't die, it is Exiled.

The Vizier has proven to be very valuable in testing.

It can prevent final damage from an Opponent Creature, or give you the freedom to attack, as you can save one of your Creatures.

I don't really like Vizier of Deferment here, especially since you took out the Verdant Rebirth which kinda synergizes with it. Not necessarily replacements for Vizier of Deferment, but I think some of these cards might be good here: Gideon of the Trials, Gideon, Martial Paragon, Everdawn Champion, and Emissary of Sunrise.

The other change I would think about is this:

-1x Angel of Invention
-1x Devoted Crop-Mate
-1x Verdant Rebirth

+3x Shapers' Sanctuary
