Wickerbough Elder Discussion

Thanks for the comment LeaPlath. Strangleroot Geist is good and was in the list earlier, I may add it back. The problem is that my 3-drops are a little less interesting. Meanwhile, Tarmogoyf will pretty much never not be a 2/3 and likely more. But I'll test them both.

As for Broodmate Dragon, the idea is if I untap with Murderous Redcap I just win with Kiki. I would consider slotting it in over Grave Titan but my 5-drop slot is pretty full. I could also replace Shriekmaw with Wickerbough Elder and cut a Huntmaster or something.

Nice suggestions!

I would drop the 2 Orchard Warden because it's 6CMC and the ability is not that great anyway. I would keep the 2 Wickerbough Elder in the sideboard as well. The 4 Fog can probably be something more versatile as well. You might have to up the land count for this deck - 20 lands won't always let you cast 4 and 5-drops on time.

I second the suggestion of Soul Snuffers, and would like to add Midnight Banshee. Both of these cards give lots of -1/-1 counters across the board, generating tons of snakes, as well as giving lots of death triggers from your own snakes dying and coming back to synergize with Blood Artist and the like.

Since you're running Kodama's Reach, I would definitely try to fit a Cultivate in there, since it's just a great way to make sure you hit your land drops with so few lands.

Wickerbough Elder is a great piece of artifact/enchantment removal that can be reset with your commander. I also like Vhati il-Dal for his ability to either save you from lots of damage or help you kill things with -1/-1 counters. Finally, it feels like you've got a lot of cards in the deck that are just vanilla creatures with wither. While wither synergizes quite nicely with your commander, there are tons of creatures that work well with -1/-1 counters that fulfill more of a purpose than just giving them in combat.

Wickerbough Elder could be interesting. Naturalize + Hapatra's ability trigger

If also try Nest of Scarabs, Soul Snuffers, Vhati il-Dal,Wickerbough Elder, Necroskitter, and if your really mean Smokestack. Also you should hit the green check for all suggestions you like (they will also auto add to your maybe board:P

Cards you should consider are Blowfly Infestation, Carnifex Demon, Channeler Initiate, Deity of Scars, Black Sun's Zenith, Grim Poppet, Wickerbough Elder, Quillspike, and Devoted Druid.

Important to note that Devoted Druid + Quillspike is an infinite combo.

Sorry hit enter before I meant to. Are you using the land destruction of Acidic Slime at 5cc? If not how about larger creatures? Wickerbough Elder, Oxidda Scrapmelter, Indrik Stomphowler or Conclave Naturalists

Torpor Orb, Rest in Peace, Asceticism, and a litany of other problem children are becoming more and more common in my meta. I need non-etb reliable enchant/artifact removal.

Kefnet the Mindful and Slice in Twain out for some testing.

Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury has always been a maybe for this deck. Creating mana dorks, removing problem pieces, and a handy/easy ult while not really drawing too much attention makes for an extremely useful piece in this build.

Wickerbough Elder over Trygon Predator because I have no true reliable way to cheat the TP damage through if they have flyers and every time I copy WE ill have 2 instances of removal. Slice in Twain or Krosan Grip will replace it if I get repeatedly bitten by this or I don't like the feel.
