Wall of Roots Discussion

I wouldn't play Hermit Druid in this build - Other than having to swap the 8 basics out, I have designed this deck to have as little reliance on the graveyard as possible. The other thing is that while it uses more pieces, the better Necrotic Ooze package uses Blighted Bat, Channeler Initiate, Devoted Druid, Wall of Roots and Walking Ballista. Each piece has a lower CMC and most of them double as mana dorks. Plus using Walking Ballista means you can pair it with any infinite mana combo.

I'm currently putting together a Sidisi, Brood Tyrant list where I'm looking to use the HD/Nooze combo but here I think it's a bit too clunky to try and integrate.

Most decks don't have board wipes one there main, so I could always side Sylvan Caryatid out for Wall of Roots if they are black or red since those two have the most board wipes. I might swap Stalwart Shield-Bearers out for either Jaddi Offshoot to increase the one drops, or I could put in some Path to Exile so this deck has some removal. I think it needs some playtesting to figure it out.

Unless you have alot of burn in your playgroup, i suggest using Wall of Roots over Sylvan Caryatid as its better for ramping. Theres also cards like Jaddi Offshoot, Wall of Vines to consider as cheap green defenders to help ramp. +1 from me as I love wall ramps! check out my wall ramp deck if youre interested Wall Ramp

2x Gifts Ungiven ($8.8 total, $4.4 ea assuming MM3)
2x Grapeshot ($.96 total)
2x Pyretic Ritual ($2.88)
2x Sleight of Hand ($8.06 total, assuming 9ED)

Note that the Lightning Helix's are OG Ravnica and HP, so I adjusted the price to the lowest you can buy a HP Rav one: $4.38. As always happy to provide pics :)

Otherwise the prices are all the prices listed on the site (TCG median?). The Path to Exile is the foil FNM promo.

I went by the editions listed on your decklist, so if any are different let me know!

Non-storm cards I was interested in are your Remands but I can take them out of the trade if you don't want to trade 'em.

Does this look okay to you? & PLEASE check my math it's not my specialty @_@

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!)
