Vernal Bloom Discussion

ExiliusGallant on mana ramp needs help

3 days ago

Mana doublers should be there, you are missing all of them.Doubling Cube, Vernal Bloom, Mana Reflection.

Also, is not about lands but about mana so, step up your mana leave a couple land fetchers out.

I have always love the land combos like, Arbor Elf + Wild Growth/Utopia Sprawl, or maybe Voyaging Satyr + Gaea's Cradle ok maybe that one is expensive

Looks like a great list but I wonder, why are there even Birds of Paradise there? They can be traded for a simple Wild Growth

There are also a couple land searchers missing: Explosive Vegetation, Harrow(this one is great with double mana), Kodama's Reach, Mwonvuli Acid-Moss or Primal Growth

If not. At least untap Selvala, you can have Wirewood Lodge instead of that Reliquary Tower, i don't see you having a lot of hand

BTW, if you lose Selvala you really lose it all :/

So, I would recomend at least a couple of this Vernal Bloom, Regal Behemoth, Mana Reflection or Zendikar Resurgent

If you are playing Helix Pinnacle you need mana doublers or something similar.

I strongly suggest Vernal Bloom, but there are other doublers that also give mana to opponents

As an absolute fan of Nissa i gotta say that i love every single deck featuring her. yours is no diferent.

As for my non-expert opinion: running Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Nissa, Worldwaker isn't a little conterintuitive? I mean, your commander is bassicaly a Nissa planeswalker so i'm not sure if thats a good idea. Garruk and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury are just great on the other hand.

Since your deck is mono-green it could be nice to use some cards that interact with forests such as spells like Beacon of Creation, Reach of Branches or Howl of the Night Pack and creatures like Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary and Patron of the Orochi for make your already insane ramp even more insane (the latter being also a Fattie)

Not a game-breaking combo but still fun: Extraplanar Lens + Snow-Covered Forest could be a substitute vor Vernal Bloom in case your friends also play with green. not something really necessary tho

I hope my suggestions become usefull for you, and if not, let me know, since i'm also thinking about building a deck for her :)

Delta-117 on play forests

Ah I see you updated this, my iPad had died before I hot to share my suggestions, and it looks like you added a bunch of them. Here is what I was going to share, you may even find something you may want that you had missed.

Omnath, Locus of Mana instead as your command perhaps, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Mana Reflection, Beacon of Creation, Exploration, Burgeoning, Boundless Realms, Primeval Titan, Beacon of Discovery, Primeval Bounty, Retreat to Kazandu, Zendikar's Roil, Lotus Cobra, Explore Gaea's Touch, Rampaging Baloths, Ulvenwald Hydra + Rogue's Passage, Avenger of Zendikar, Embodiment of Insight, Courser of Kruphix, Dungrove Elder, Kalonian Twingrove.

Regal Behemoth, Zendikar Resurgent, Patron of the Orochi, Vernal Bloom, Caged Sun, Yavimaya Elder and Helix Pinnacle are other ideas.

Early Harvest, Tireless Tracker, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Karametra's Acolyte,then a card that I always liked was Elderscale Wurm and this works well with devotion strategies.

For lands have Rogue's Passage, Myriad Landscape, Reliquary Tower and make use of Rishkar's Expertise, Nissa's Revelation and other similar effects, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, then just forests wil do unless you want to go with Eldrazi then use Shrine of the Forsaken Gods, Sanctum of Ugin, Eye of Ugin and so on too.

I will try and help out with cutting down your creatures soon, you can if you want share decklists with others if you look within "edit" so that I am able to make changes to this deck otherwise I will do up something separate. The thing is, is that green is pretty good at making token related cards and that's why you can get away with a lot less creatures, and the ones you do have can be big such as Kozilek, Butcher of Truth for example.

Omnath is busted, but to get the full effects you gotta use all the mana doubling effects you can: Dictate of Karametra, Zendikar Resurgent, Heartbeat of Spring, Doubling Cube, Keeper of Progenitus, Caged Sun, Vernal Bloom, Regal Behemoth, Mana Reflection, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger...oh and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Life's Legacy, Momentous Fall, Soul's Majesty & Garruk, Primal Hunter. That's all that comes off the top of my head. Cheers.

I completely agree. Vernal Bloom got me killed in a mirror match at FNM lol. Thanks very much for your help :-)

Me personally, I would drop Woodland Bellower for the baloths. Same cmc, and you only have 6 creatures as options to search for. The baloths will pump out 4/4's and goes with the landfall theme. Vernal Bloom, it's a great card, but benefits opponents who use green also. And you're already running 3 other cards that either double or add additional mana when you tap a land. I would also consider dropping Eldritch Evolution and Evolutionary Leap only because you have almost no recursion and you only have 24 creatures listed.
