MountainMan817 on What happens to Kiki-Jiki and ...

1 week ago

Say I have a Woodfall Primus in play. I resolve a Kiki-Jiki and proceed to copy Primus. I pop one of their permanents, swing for 6, end my turn... I sacrifice the TOKEN PRIMUS, which has Persist... what is the outcome for that token?

Sorry about not responding back to you about the trade. I am very interested in the trade for Woodfall Primus but I am currently using the Chord of Calling. Was there anything else you might be interested in?

If I remember the rules right this: Juniper Order Ranger+Sac outlet+ Woodfall Primus --> Destroy all noncreature permanents, does not work! +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters dont cancel each other out! If a creature has one of each on it, power and toughness might not change, but the creature still has both counters on it!

I do not think Woodfall Primus or Vorapede add much to your deck. While they provide powerful beaters, you can assemble an infinite combo easily enough. I would either reduce or eliminate these cards.

Frankly, I think Flayer of the Hatebound is excessive--you already can generate infinite damage with Murderous Redcap or Blasting Station, and Kitchen Finks infinite life gives you security non-combo/alternate win condition decks. A six-mana bomb does not work well with the rest of your cards.

You should consider increasing your Murderous Redcap numbers to four. This will make your deck more consistent.

Melira, Sylvok Outcast is a solid replacement card. In addition to enabling your infinite combos, it also has the nifty ability of shutting down infect decks. Given the utility your Redcap/Finks perform when sacrifice, you should also consider adding another sacrifice outlet. Unfortunately, in your colours, there are very few "free" sacrifice outlets--artifacts/blue/red/white sacrifice tools require you to pay mana in addition to sacrificing.

I would highly recommend splashing black for Viscera Seer. Seer provides a free sacrifice outlet, enabling infinite damage with Redcap. You can also infinitely sacrifice Finks to gain infinite life, while scrying a Redcap to the top of your deck, ensuring you a victory on your next turn. Since it only costs , and you are running numerous fetch lands/Birds of Paradise, you would not need any swamps, and could just having two shock lands that produce black mana. I would recommend one of those be Godless Shrine, as all your fetches pull Forests.

Well, I'm pretty much just interested in the Chord of Calling, the other two were just to balance the trade value.

Would you want to do just the Woodfall Primus for Chord of Calling? I feel like that's me shorting you, but it's your call.

So you commented on my half-finished Ghalta list suggesting I look here, but I don't actually see what I'm meant to be looking at. The deck is glacially slow, often incapable of doing anything meaningful at all until turn 5, you're running a strangely low number of lands, and there are only 7 cards in the entire list capable of interacting with the opponent's cards outside of combat (three of which need to successfully attack to use the effect). Cards like Terastodon, Woodfall Primus, and Admonition Angel, would at least give you some ways of interacting with artifacts and enchantments. Too high of a percentage of the cards in this deck don't really do anything besides put power and toughness onto the board. This does has some insurance against wraths, but it seems like mass bounce, exile, or -X/-X effects still destroy you. Having personally already tested Mayael, putting enough 5 power creatures into the deck to make the activated ability consistent (which is really important when you're paying so much mana for the ability) is essentially guaranteed to make the deck slow and clunky. This is why I instead elected for a commander like Ghalta with more of a focus on cards that benefit from having at least one large creature at a reduced cost, able to make plays like casting Ghalta for 2 mana and following up with Life's Legacy for a 4 mana draw 12, or combine Ghalta (as the commander) with Food Chain and Manaplasm, for example, to produce unlimited mana.

I never decided to take that deck past theorycrafting, and instead continue to get my big-creature fix from playing this deck: Thromok, where I get to make plays like sacrificing Thromok to Miren for 300+ life, or make so much mana with Druids' Repository to cast Thromok three times in one turn, with 50+ power each time, as it gets killed in response to the lethal Chandra's Ignition, before Thromok's spark successfully ignites on the third try burning all opponents to a crisp.

sylvannos on Are Treefolk viable in Modern?

One of my buddies built Mono-Green Treefolk and it's a great metagame call.

A lot of your creatures dodge the format's removal, except Path to Exile. They're too big to hit with cards like Pyroclasm. You get a lot of value from the Treefolk you do play.

Just from memory (so I'm not sure if this is the exact list), he plays something like:

4x Cavern of Souls
4x Blighted Woodland
16x Forest
---------------------------------------------------
24 Lands

4x Bosk Banneret
4x Dauntless Dourbark
4x Dungrove Elder
4x Leaf-Crowned Elder
4x Seedguide Ash
4x Timber Protector
4x Treefolk Harbinger
---------------------------------------------------
28 Creatures

4x Lignify
4x Rootgrapple
---------------------------------------------------
8 Other Spells

Sideboard:
2x Beast Within
1x Choke
2x Creeping Corrosion
3x Nature's Claim
3x Relic of Progenitus
2x Scavenging Ooze
1x Thragtusk
1x Woodfall Primus

I'm not sure if this is his exact list or what his sideboard looks like. I don't remember if he plays much mana ramp (Search for Tomorrow and Sakura-Tribe Elder both help a lot). I think that's a decent recollection of what his sideboard looks like, but I'm not positive on that either (just that it had the usual green hatecrap found in Modern).
