Vines of the Recluse
Target creature gets +1/+2 and gains reach until end of turn. Untap it. (A creature with reach can block creatures with flying.)

Vines of the Recluse Discussion
2 days ago
I was thinking about this some more though, and I realized I forgot to mention anything about flyerhate. Wolves are notoriously weak to flyers, and now that Temur Midrange (featuring both pesky Thopters and brutal Glorybringers) has become a HUGE part of many metas, it's a real weakness for the deck. There are lots of good ways to answer a Turn 4 Glorybringer, but I personally like Tears of Valakut and Plummet. Or maybe Vines of the Recluse/Aim High ... they're probably my favorite combat tricks ever, but require a creature on board with at least 3 toughness (so it can survive the 4 damage if he Exerts).
As always, draw well!

fanofhell I thought about clip wings but Vines of the Recluse also provides untap and pump while giving reach instant speed for 1 mana. Nice way to spring a sudden defense on someone iIfeel over just making them sack a flyer which may not be the flyer I want to disappear. Vines is cheaper and more targeted to what I wanna do.

I understand the appeal of a 1-mana pump, but Brute Strength is better than Built to Smash imo. Vines of the Recluse is hilarious too, as opponents never expect the Untap, but I like both Strength and Smash much better than it except in a totally flyer-infested meta.

If you want your elf synergies to work, you need more elves! 20 is way too few, it will work much better with 30+. You don't need all those non-creature, non-land cards. Some of them are good, but overall you just have way too many. The ones i like the least are Attune with Aether, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Vines of the Recluse and Golden Urn.
I would add a lot of 1cmc elves, like 4 of each Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic. They might be unexciting, but help you being explosive by accelerating your mana. You could also add Elvish Archdruid, Dwynen's Elite, Elvish Champion, Imperious Perfect and Ezuri, Renegade Leader.

Congrats on your FNM results! I'm SO glad you enjoyed the deck and that Soul-Scar Mage worked out well for you! One thing to mention: If you're running without Attune with Aether, you may want a few more Lands. But nvm if you already thought about that or if it's working fine for you!
Consuming Fervor is intriguing. I think I'd rather have Expedite if I was looking for a use for 1 extra mana. Or maybe Vines of the Recluse (which is probably my favorite combat trick ever, because of the Untap effect). Please let me know how it goes though!
Thanks much and draw well!

Appreciate they are one use, but they can provide quasi-vigilance and may end up removing the pesky flyer.
They also trigger Silverfur Partisan bringing in a surprise blocker.

I'd be intrigued to know how this build performs.
I'd consider including something like Shock that doubles up as target removal and hitting in for those last two points of damage after a heavy strike.
There's also Spidery Grasp that has a similar function.
