Elvish Harbinger and Wirewood Herald are two relatively inexpensive cards that tutor for valuable Elves.

Priest of Titania makes oodles of mana for you so long as you have a giant board, and it's only $2. It's well worth the cost.

Your decklist is also a little artifact-light; Bow of Nylea, Swiftfoot Boots, Whispersilk Cloak, and Golgari Signet are all worth a look.

Good call on the channeler for titania replacement, I threw that in there quickly from an outdated mtg salvation post regarding infinite combos. I use Titania in several decks and definitely a straight upgrade.

I'm assuming you have experience playing the deckstyle; I haven't gotten the chance to playtest this so I certainly appreciate the time you took to leave feedback.

The reason I have the Wirewood Herald and Elvish Harbinger is to find the Bloodbraid Elf, which would ideally help sift through all the lands in the deck to bring out the plethora of 1, 2 and 3 drop infinite combos.

I'm especially keen on Saproling Cluster + Fecundity + Ashnod's Altar + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in the library for infinite mana & card draw, and Bloodbraid certainly helps me get there.

To your point though, sticking with the theme of the deck is important and I may have tried to force one too many combos in that realistically wouldn't happen very often. I'm going to look at swapping the cards in that you suggested.

Thanks dude!

I have A Bobo too but mostly based around him.

First, replace Wirewood Channeler with either Priest of Titania or Elvish Archdruid

Things you could take out while keeping the theme would be: Mulch, Into the Wilds, Countryside Crusher, Elvish Harbinger, Wirewood Herald, Constant Mists, Venser's Journal, Urabrask the Hidden, and you don't need 50 land. I'd say 46.

Cards you should put in: Sprouting Vines, Creeping Renaissance, Sol Ring, Praetor's Counsel, Genesis Wave, Green Sun's Zenith, Zealous Conscripts, and maybe Rings of Brighthearth and Hull Breach

And if you want to make the deck more about bobo then add: Keen Sense, Snake Umbra, Illusionist's Bracers, Journeyer's Kite, Knollspine Dragon, Rites of Spring, and Gratuitous Violence

If your opponents don't want to killWirewood Herald, use it to your own good and attack with him - if they refuse to block, buff him a few times. When your opponents know that he hurt, they will either start blocking him (and you get to tutor something) or just take tons of damage. Both is god for you.

If you want to overrun the opponents, you should also consider Overrun

Elvish Champion is indeed a bit trickier than I thought. I could shoot myself in the feet with it.Imperious Perfect is better and I should try to get him indeed.

I need my Elvish Lyrist and Elvish Scrapper as easy drops and because my friends play with a lot of Artifacts / Enchantments.

Wirewood Herald is good, but it's problem is he has to die :) and my friends know my deck a bit and they don't want to kill him.

The strategy is simple: rush towards a Tajura Pathwarden or 6 / 7 creatures and then use the instants to kill them off.

ok, I will now comment every card somehow. Please take my critics as constructive

Elvish Champion is a nice card, if used well. The +1/+1 is of course nice, but beware, it gives ALL elves +1/+1 - this includes the elves of opponents! Elvish Archdruid has the same mana cost, is a bit cheaper to buy and even gives you tons of mana. here you should look for a mana sink, such as Ezuri, Renegade Leader (maybe a bit over your budget).Imperious Perfect also is a nice 3drop that allows you to create even more elves. Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen is a 4drop, but also gives a nice boost and gives a great life boost. All of these are better than Elvish Champion in most games. There is a tricky way though to make the champion quite nasty: Unstable Frontier! Make other lands to forests and just rush in with your elves!

Elvish Lyrist and Elvish Scrapper are a great sideboard cards. Is there a reason you put them into the main board?

Elvish Pioneer is nice, but I would still prefer Llanowar Elves or Arbor Elf, because they always give you one mana when on the battlefield. Elvish Pioneer's ability is useless if you have no forest in hand (which happens often in the late game).

Elvish Visionary as I said before, great card!

Gempalm Strider underestimated card! I like him.

Lys Alana Huntmaster is also awesome (as said before), but if you want to play him I would focus even more around him/her.

Sylvan Ranger: I still prefer Llanowar Elves or Arbor Elf.

Sylvan Messenger I got mixed feelings here... I never tried him I have to admit, but he looks good on paper.

Tajuru Pathwarden hum... I am not sure if he fits. As finishers, there are better options (maybe also non-elves). If it is important to you to only have elves, I would probably pick others, such as the +1/+1 choices I told you above.

Thornweald Archer also very underestimated and I love him. I would probably put him into the sideboard though.

Wirewood Herald it is like a better version of Elvish Visionary.. so it is even more awesome.

So, to put it in a nutshell, this already fels way better than before I think (if I recall it right), but I still think you have problems deciding for a strategy.

You should really try Ulvenwald Mysteries and Wirewood Herald. I'm the guy that posted about golgari commanders on reddit btw.

The_Master_Strategist on Pauper G/B Ivy Lane Persist Combo

1 year ago

Hey there! You are bringing up one of the problems this deck has which is it dies pretty fast to efficient removal. In response to your specific questions:

Q1: If your opponent targets your sac outlet, it stops the combo as there is no way to save it from murder. I am considering putting in Vines of Vastwood or Apostle's Blessing to help with this as I have found that it can be hard to actually keep the combo. However, if your opponent targets either of your other creatures, you still get one swing with an infinite power creature or if you have viscera seer instead, you still get to stack your next draw.

Q2: If you sac and your opponent responds by casting murder targeting Ivy Lane Denizen or your sac outlet, there is nothing you can do about it as the persist trigger has not resolved yet bringing it back to the battlefield. Thus there is nothing you can sac to continue the combo.

Q3: I believe I answered this in Q2 but essentially, if he responds to the sac, the combo fizzles. This deck does get to compensate though by having an extremely high concentration of combo pieces making it very easy to replace a card that has removed. The deck I have been struggling against the most has been goblins which has enough removal to be able to kill every other creature a play and kill me before I can refuel.

I will continue to be looking into various forms of protection as I have found removal to be the number one threat to the deck. I will probably be replacing Rite of Consumption as it has largely been under-performing and when I need to get damage through I can just tutor up my Elvish Herder with Viscera Seer or Wirewood Herald
