Viridian Emissary Discussion

Thanks AwesomeOctopus! I love the Genesis Wave, Regal Force, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Tishana, Voice of Thunder suggestions. So I'll try to make room for them. I will test out Doubling Cube. I like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach, but I worry swapping Viridian Emissary and Primal Druid out for them would drop my creature count too low - 37 right now, including token spells like Rite of Replication. I love Avenger of Zendikar but I have another Land-related deck that I use him in and I'm weird about repeating cards, especially when they're distinctive like he is. Craterhoof Behemoth is also a great creature, but I'm just not feeling him for this deck.

Your mana base needs to shift more to white and green and away from blue to hit your one drops and play your late blue spells. I would try 7 Plains, 9 Forest, 2 Islands. Awakening Part the Waterveil at 6UUU will require a Cascading Cataracts which seems acceptable at 9 mana, but the 2 Islands are sufficient for everything else and can be tutored up.
Along with Sakura-Tribe Elder, you could try Rampant Growth,Viridian Emissary,Harrow,Primal Druid,Animist's Awakening. There are also some creatures that help play extra lands from your hand: Elvish Pioneer,Sakura-Tribe Scout,Walking Atlas.
For example, 2 Elvish Pioneer, 4 Sakura-Tribe Elder, 2 Hour of Promise could replace your 4 Explosive Vegetation, 4 Hour of Promise (Keeping your 2 Nissa's Renewal). This curve might not be low enough, but it is a start.

this is just a start but what I would keep in mind with this deck is can it benefit from sac or can it sac on its own? if not it probably should not be in this deck.

ibstudent2200 A lot of the Omnath Turn 2 Plays I ended up drawing late in the game when they were dead draws and that's the only reason they aren't in the deck. When I started out things like Elvish Mystic were in the deck but again, I found them to be dead draws later on.
Rancor was in the deck for a looooong while but then I got my hands on Whispersilk Cloak and that was the replacement. I've considered dropping Rancor back in for a while though, I might actually do it.
I didn't realize Frontier Siege was both main phases or else I would have bought this the day it came out. I think out of the three here Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is my favorite. I might have to see if anyone I know has one laying around. Doubling Cube has always been a huge option, the only reason it hasn't been a purchase recently was because money got tight. It is definitely still on my list though.
Silverglade Elemental was a drop in back when I first built the deck, but I just haven't found anything to replace it with yet, so that's the only reason its still in. I might drop it for Selvala, Heart of the Wilds if I can find one.
I agree on the Drove of Elves, again it was one of those cards that I dropped in during the beginning of my building and just never found a replacement for. Do you have a creature you would recommend filling this spot with?
Thorn Elemental ... This card was just for memories, because it was my first ever foil and I kept it for so long, but it needs to be retired. Maybe drop Rancor in its place?
Nessian Wilds Ravager was in for a removal card, or just to have a big dude. Prey Upon would be a much better replacement, but I was kind of hoping to have a big dude with it, which is why Ravager was still in
Viridian Emissary was in because he was a 2/1 for 2 that made opponents hesitate before attacking turn 2 for fear of giving an extra mana. But being able to sac Sakura-Tribe Elder in the event of something like a ping works as well, I suppose, which does make him better. Very valid point
I agree with the Enlarge drop, and Ezuri's Predation would be an amazing replacement, however Revenge of the Hunted allows Omanth to hit directly as everything else has to block something smaller like Sakura-Tribe Elder for example.
Thank you for your wonderful feedback!

Protean Hydra Paradox Engine Lifeblood Hydra Heroes' Bane Natural Order Green Sun's Zenith Fauna Shaman Sylvan Tutor and for better draw and the such Sensei's Divining Top Mirri's Guile and Sylvan Library and for things to cut i would say Drove of Elves seeing as there are better choices and Deadly Recluse while it does have reach it just isn't that good play cards like Tornado Elemental or Predator, Flagship and i would replace Viridian Emissary with Yavimaya Elder
