Vine Trellis Discussion

calvinwarning on Walls of Skola Vale

Thank you for your suggestions.

Personally I believe Wall of Roots is by far better than Vine Trellis, because you can generate mana the turn it's played rather that having to wait to use it due to summoning sickness. However, Vine Trellis would be a good alternative if I were to go an ultra budget route.

I've always found Assault Formation to be a bit underwhelming. I want to like it, and I think it would be cool to combo with something like Behind the Scenes to make all of my walls unblockable. It's something I'll think about, but at the moment I don't see it having a place in this deck. I will probably put together a decklist consisting purely of defenders and utilize that combo.

Carven Caryatid is nice, but I don't know what I would take out for it and since I run 36 creatures in here I feel as if Lead the Stampede is a better draw engine since I often find myself putting three to four creatures into my hand consistently from it to assemble a win condition.

Sylvan Caryatid is definitely something I will consider when I eventually work on a sideboard.

I love wall ramps, my suggestions are as follows:

Replace Wall of Roots with Vine Trellis

Add Assault Formation. This card is a cornerstone for Wall/Defender decks and is a must include IMO.

Consider adding Carven Caryatid for its card draw or Sylvan Caryatid for Anti-burn (no lightning bolting my mana dorks for you, mono red decks!)

Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl is a great ramp combo, but unless you draw both its not very fast. Some decent ramp spells worth experimenting with are Nissa's Pilgrimage or Rampant Growth. Since most of your other spells are more expensive CMC wise, you could possibly get Scorned Villager transformed which is decent ramp. Otherwise you can try swapping in some mana dorks, like Mystic Elves or even some walls that can also help early game like Vine Trellis or Sylvan Caryatid.

So from what I can see your ramp cards are as follows:

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx x1

Wall of Roots x3

Llanowar Elves x 4

Personally I think just 8 cards that can ramp you up quickly is too few in a deck relying on getting big creatures out. Cards like Cultivate or Utopia Sprawl or Arbor Elf are faster ways to ramp. I think Vine Trellis or Sylvan Caryatid are better than Wall of Roots for ramp.

Otherwise, you have alot of cards that require double or Which can be dangerous with a deck that doesnt have dual color lands like Simic Guildgate. For instance it will be hard to play Leatherback Baloth on turn 3 or 4 if you only have islands in play considering it needs 3. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a great card but if your deck isnt mono-blue or mono-green I dont think itll ever hit as big as it could with one color.

TBH I think you should consider dropping if you wanna play a big stompy ramp deck but if this is what you like I wont stop ya :)

Other cards to consider in any ramp deck with green:


Gatecreeper Vine

Axebane Guardian

Overgrown Battlement

I picked Vine Trellis over Sylvan Caryatid because it is cheaper, and I only need green mana. The hexproof would be good, except it's not one of my main combo pieces, so I doubt it will be targeted much.

I like this deck alot, i've been thinking of building something similar recently. Why did you pick Vine Trellis over Sylvan Caryatid, just curious? I gotta think theres a better option for Scion of the Wild as well. Cheers

Wall of Roots and/or Sylvan Caryatid are both mostly better than Vine Trellis.
