Verdant Touch Discussion

As for enabling your frostwaker there is Fyndhorn Brownie , Magewright's Stone , Niblis of the Breath , Puppeteer , and Puppet Strings . some of those are bound to be inexpensive, and adding in a handful of boardwipes and enablers for that strategy would lend itself to doing that strategy more often.

I like the concept, similar to my B/G, I would recommend Verdant Touch. This allows you to animate their land even quicker if you need to burn it. It also acts as a Quirion Druid in spell form in essence due to Buyback. It is quite a bit more mana intensive in comparison however, it would increase your chances of getting animation and unlike Animate Land, Vivify, and Lifespark Spellbomb, you will be able to continue to use it long term as well as a permanent effect.

@lilgiantrobot This is fantastic! I understand the importance of Engulfing Slagwurm/Sylvan Basilisk now. Between them and Nacatl War-Pride(which is a fantastic find by the way, thank you) the deck is starting to be more cohesive. Instead of only relying on Kamahl, Fist of Krosa I can now comfortably add in Jolrael, Empress of Beasts, Natural Affinity and Nature's Revolt.
I'm going to try to revise the deck later today and look at it again from a new perspective. I think there's a lot of potential here :-)

I've always wanted to see the flip side to the Legions set. For those unaware Legions was a set made of ALL creatures, not a single non-creature spell or even land. So the flip side would be a completely creature-less set. Which of course would require some alternate win conditions especially for drafting or sealed so I figured:
+: Awaken-like effects (ex:Verdant Touch)
+: Tokens (ex:Call of the Conclave)
+: Creature Enchantments (ex:Myth Realized)
+: Mill (ex:Mind Funeral)
+: Burn/Life Loss (ex:Blightning)
Colorless: Artifact Creatures (ex:Chimeric Staff)
Probably wouldn't be the greatest set, most people considered Legions a complete flop. But I think it'd be interesting to see.
