Wirewood Guardian Discussion

I would have to agree with derpytrollerZ on his points of advice.

This deck would really benefit from more card advantage.
In the pauper format, some of the most efficient and affordable card advantage can be achieved with cards similar to Mulldrifter, which you already have included in the deck. I would advise you to remove some of the less effective creatures in favor of some that give more card advantage (draw power and tutoring).

In this case, I would remove the following creatures:
Man-o'-War, Rampaging Hippo, Rubbleback Rhino, and Wirewood Guardian.

Try adding these creatures:
AEthersnipe, Dimir Infiltrator, Drift of Phantasms, Impaler Shrike, Moriok Replica, and Pilgrim's Eye.
Creatures with ETB effects that allow the player to draw cards are really strong in Pauper. Also, the Transmute ability is a powerful way to tutor certain cards that you might need. A card that has a lot of utility in your colors is Perplex, for example (which should totally replace Dismiss).

I also feel as though Predatory Hunger and Sadistic Glee don't fit the theme of the deck itself. I suggest adding cards like Mystical Teachings and Treasure Cruise instead.

As for the land base, try making adjustments to your non-land permanents first, and see where that leaves you (you can always balance out the number of basic lands later :P). Since you are running three colors, you would benefit from adding a Command Tower.

I hope this helps you out some!

So i don't exactly know how pauper works, but heres some general advice.

First of all, balance out your land base. You can see it on the right side of this deck list. You need more blue lands and less green lands.

Second of all, you seem to lack a bit of card draw. Maybe consider adding some more.

Third, your deck lacks synergy. I see a bunch of decent cards, but most don't complement each other. (also, get rid of Wirewood Guardian it kinda sucks)

Fourth, you seem to have quite a few life gain effects. Perhaps something that can synergize with life gain can help?

This is a thing i also want to do with the new cards and your idea, to tutor and than cycle, seems pretty sweet.

Maybe Landcycling is something for you : Twisted Abomination, Krosan Tusker, Wirewood Guardian, Shoreline Ranger

I would find room for the Priest of Titania. IMO one of the best ramp elves for elf decks. Also, Fierce Empath would help you tutor for your threats if you can't top deck one and with 2-3 of them I would even go down a couple of Wirewood Guardians and put an Ulamog's Crusher in just in case you get a chance to cast it.
