Viridian Joiner Discussion

Hey, you should consider looking into using Ezuri, Claw of Progress as the General for your deck. Ezuri can be an enabler for big green ramp with mana dorks that can tap to make mana equal to their power and/or number of +1/+1 counters they have.
- Gyre Sage
- Marwyn, the Nurturer
- Viridian Joiner
- Devoted Druid : +1/+1 counters cancel out -1/-1 counters.
At combat put all the experience counters on one of these dorks and then use that dork to make mana at your second main phase or after. Use all this green mana with token mana sinks:
- Ant Queen
- Jade Mage
- Biogenic Ooze
- Sprout Swarm
- Or Temur Sabertooth to loop casting Wolfbriar Elemental , Avenger of Zendikar , Hornet Queen .
Other reasons to use Ezuri with tokens are to take more advantage of Champion of Lambholt and Sage of Hours . Lambholt can make your token army unblockable and she gets a counter whenever a token is created. She can get huge with Ezuri and tokens. Hours can give you infinite extra turns with Ezuri. All Hours needs are 5 experience counters which can be placed on him via Ezuri each combat. This lets you attack with the tokens at the extra turn and keep doing this until all your opponents are dead.

Some better counterspells would fit nicely as well.

Update #1: Stoneforge Mystic is out (due to being sold) and Marwyn, the Nurturer has taken her place as a second, and possibly better, Viridian Joiner . Autumn's Veil is out for the better Veil of Summer .

Actually, most people don't scoop, even when it's clear I'm going to win. They want to see the wincon first. Finale is used pretty much purely as a Green Sun's Zenith in this deck, and Walking Ballista is the best one card wincon for these reasons. One, it can be tutored which is extremely relevant. Two, you can get it with Duskwatch Recruiter Flip, which if you have infinite mana and one tutor, you can get the recruiter and play Walking Ballista from there, and you have access to Eternal Witness and Skullwinder in case of counters. Three, it only requires infinite mana, as opposed to infinite storm. Aetherflux Reservoir requires more cards to actually win, and you whiff if you have infinite mana and Reservoir in hand, but no source of card draw or tutor or storm generation. Ballista still wins the game in that place. Viridian Joiner is no doubt a bad card, I just don't know what to cut for a duplicate of my commander, and in the case when Marwyn gets taken by a Gilded Drake or something, the best bet is probably just Priest of Titania anyway. Viridian Joiner is also a dead card in 95% of situations, but it does have its benefits. Finally, Duskwatch Recruiter Flip is the second best draw outlet in the deck ( Staff of Domination will always be better), but Duskwatch Recruiter Flip has never underperformed for me. Riftsweeper on the other hand seems like a meta call, when I play cEDH exiling cards are never really a problem.

Just a tiny bit slow, you can always Finale the bears for lethal, but that's probaly overkill. The only problem with this deck - people just scoop when they realize what's up. Why did you cut Aetherflux Reservoir ? This deck sure can be fast and ballista can be tutored, but if someone FoWs it? I also run Viridian Joiner as a backup plan. Doesn't die to a pinger, costs the same sans ability to pump himself with counters. And maybe it's a little spreading too much, but I've also included Riftsweeper in place of Duskwatch Recruiter Flip since he's been very underperforming

shadowmage I think I might try Mirror Entity again; I like how it also can protect against Toxic Deluge , and if I do I'll try the Ranger-Captain as well. I'll test the Devoted Druid combo, I'm just concerned with Vizier of Remedies being a dead card without the druid. I do like the idea of cards like Uncage the Menagerie being able to tutor for both combo pieces though.
Also, just a suggestion, but Selvala, Heart of the Wilds works similarly to Marwyn, the Nurturer and Viridian Joiner for the purposes of Umbral Mantle , if you want a third copy of that effect in your deck (I'm not playing that or the joiner, but that's just because they are only mediocre without the mantle, and I like having a good average card quality).

Hey, saw your comment on my page so I thought I'd check some of your Oathbreaker decks out. This deck reminds me of a deck I had back during original Zendikar. This was before I got into commander, so all I played was casual 60 card decks. The deck was based around Gigantomancer of all things because my friend said it was a terrible card, so I set to prove him wrong. The idea of it was to use Gigantomancer 's ability to boost the power of my Viridian Joiner s and utilize untap shenanigans as well as other mana dorks to establish crazy mana bases. I would win by casting Gelatinous Genesis or maxing tower counters on Helix Pinnacle . Sure it was complete jank, but man those were the days!
Anyway! In regards to this deck, I really like it! One thing I would ask is if Blightsteel Colossus would be better substituted by Kozilek, Butcher of Truth ? I'm aware of how awesome the colossus is, but Kozilek acts as both removal & draw for your deck. Both inevitably win games so maybe it doesn't matter, but just an idea.
Either way, thanks for the trip down memory lane! +1 from me on the deck! Love it!
