Wall of Blossoms Discussion

@Sleazebag: Thank you for the extensive advise!
First of all, Sprouting Vines is just plain bad. I'm never going hit a storm of more than 1. Rites of Spring doesn't replace itself, so it doesn't do much. Nostalgic Dreams looks OK, but not necessary. the Genesis Wave Combo seems interesting. I like it. I already tried Helix Pinnacle. it's REALLY bad but Sands of Delirium seems OK. Wall of Blossoms is good, and Elvish Visionary is, too. Lost in the Woods IS a 5 drop. I know its mana cost, and I also know it's bad, but I keep it in to slow down other decks, not to win with it.

Nostalgic Dreams is also amazing here if you want to turn excess forests into more useful spells after flipping Sasaya.
If you add Genesis Wave, don't forget to run Eternal Witness so you can fetch back your win conditions from the graveyard (as they are X cost spells). Currently you have absolutely zero ways to deal with lockdown. Say an Isochron Scepter + Orim's Chant loop, or a Sphere of Safety, or a Glacial Chasm loop, all extremely common lockdowns in Tiny Leaders. Helix Pinnacle and Sands of Delirium are alternate win conditions.
Due to your ridiculous forest count, cards like Wall of Blossoms and Elvish Visionary turn into "Draw a Forest", and even when they don't you probably wanted that card anyways. Carven Caryatid too but it's a 3 drop and that's when you want to play Sasaya.
Also, felt the need to mention Lost in the Woods is a 5 drop.

I'm a little iffy on Infiltration Lens for the soul reason that it eliminates one of the main win cons: making the squid unblockable. Without Aqueous Form, there is only Taigam’s Strike and I only run one of those for now. I do love the ability of the lens, but if they run a swarming strategy, blocking with meat shields eliminates a chance for swinging for lethal.
I love Trade Secrets, though I wish it was an instant. Instants in this deck, specifically Jace's Ingenuity, make your squid Become Immense in a surprise move: + + ]]. When I invest in Psychic Possession though, I'm gonna get some TS as well to, at the very least, test it out.
Loving this advice though, thanks!

- Should be obvious, especially if you run Psychic Possession
- Chances are you won't be attacking with the visionary anyway. Blossoms provides you much more defense.
- If only because you draw 2 cards for each creature that blocks. You give them the option to take damage or pump your creature.
Other cards to consider:
Rhystic Study : Good for casual multiplayer
Standstill : This may not be the best fit for your deck, but the idea is to drop Standstill while you are ahead and then hunker down until an opponent finally has to play a spell. Then you draw three cards, and counter the spell they played before it gets to resolve. :)

Yeah, id go with traproot kami over wall of vines. Although honestly id probably not run that at all and run Spidersilk Armor instead.
Wall of Blossoms is amazing as its a cantrip, as is the previously mentioned sylvan caryatid.
Wall of Mulch would be pretty awesome in the deck too, if you dont have an assault formation out yet it lets you block and sac any walls that are too small to survive attackers, and after you get assault formation out it allows you to sac attackers that would otherwise die ineffectively aswell.

I'm trying to build a mono green deck around Assault Formation for kitchen table games. I'm open to adding other colors but I would like to keep it green and preferably budget if possible. So what do you think, any ideas? right now I'm using a core of Wall of Vines, Wall of Blossoms, and Collected Company.

Just throwing a few suggestions out there. Eternal Witness, Geralf's Messenger, Wall of Blossoms, and Shriekmaw just to name a few. It takes some time to create a well enough deck and takes a lot of trial and error. Just keep researching certain cards that work well with each other. Usually in modern, people don't play cards with cmc over 3. If you are just doing casual play, you could add stuff you just think are fun to play that wouldn't do the best in a competitive setting. Don't worry, it just takes some patience.
