Wirewood Herald Discussion

DeanMoriarty on cEDH flash omni-rector Jodha

Just watched your Youtube video. I had already recognized that Jodah-Rector-Flash-Omniscience had potential, but without thinking about the actual lines in detail.

I was skeptical at first about Tidespout Tyrant, but it made sense in the end.

Still, there are two things I would like to see to improve the deck:

1) A way to win off of Flash-Hulk even if those are the last two cards in your hand

So far, the best line I could come up with is the following: - Flash in Protean Hulk - Find Viscera Seer and Body Double, copying Protean Hulk - Sac Body Double, find Academy Rector and Wirewood Herald - Sac Academy Rector to find Omniscience - Sac Wirewood Herald to find Fierce Empath - Play Fierce Empath with Omniscience to find Razaketh, the Foulblooded - Play Razaketh, the Foulblooded, sac Fierce Empath to find any tutor to keep going

This requires a lot of extra slots, so I think there might be a better way

2) A way to win that doesn't rely on the graveyard

An easy one would be Grapeshot + Petals of Insight , but the challenge is finding a line that relies on cards which aren't dead weight otherwise

I'm also looking to get rid of the Wishes, since I think your situation is rather unique.

FiendishElf, I agree that Wirewood Herald is one of the weaker guys in the deck, and he's coming out for the new Dominaria elves. The card has good utility if you don't have all of the green tutors, but now since I do, he lost his purpose. Thanks for pointing that out!

Red seems good for Impact Tremors and Hissing Iguanar than Commune with the Gods finds all your combo pieces and can even mill Faithless Looting for a free flashback.
Also, Ivy Lane Denizen and Safehold Elite are the core of your combo, why not run 4 copies of Wirewood Herald as he finds them both?

My Pauper deck has a lot in common with your deck. Might be some budget cards you want. Like Wirewood Herald as a tutor instead.

Sweet deck. I like taking advantage of Nath's discard theme, and the tokens are a great way to stall the game. There are a few recommendations that may improve the deck. I'm an advocate of using hard ramp, i.e. ramp that places lands on the board over cards that are subject to removal. With that being said, I would definitely run Hour of Promise because it doesn't have a restriction on what it can find, in terms of lands. This is a great way to tutor out your Urborg and Coffers if you need them.

Also, I think you would benefit from more card draw. Vanquisher's Banner and Greater Good are both excellent in tribal decks - Greater Good more so in elves because of Timberwatch. Another great inclusion is Wirewood Herald. The ability to tutor for a creature, specifically elf, when you have plenty of ways to sac your stuff, is perfect. Plus, it combos with Timberwatch and Greater Good.

Since you're running a heavy discard theme, I know you have Megrim, but having Liliana's Caress seems like a given choice, too.

If you want to get really cheeky, this deck is set up to run Paradox Engine + Buyback spells that generate tokens, primarily Sprout Swarm and Wurmcalling, but you can also run Mind Peel as a way to essentially Mindtwist everyone's hand. It's just a thought, but it's more of a win more strategy.

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!
