I had an idea for an Elf deck that overwhelmed every part of me so I decided to divide them and this is the druid deck I made.
It's for casual games among my circle of players and is also mostly meant to be a pseudo-trolling deck.
Need ideas for a win-con other than taking everyone's lands whenever I feel like it.
Fun Mode: Eldrazi Conscription
Try adding in Doubling Chant for even more hilarity when you have all your creatures out.
Love the deck: +1

Great idea, I don't know why I didn't think of that sooner.
August 5, 2011 3:11 p.m.
I would also -1 Arbor Elf to up the Elvish Archdruid count to 4, as he'll become ridiculous, and it even smooths out your curve a bit more. card:Green Sun's Zenith to fetch whichever elf you need I'm thinking spend four mana to put Elvish Harbinger on the battlefield, then search for Gilt-Leaf Archdruid with her ability, and play him next turn as you now have At Least 5 mana from the harbinger).
So in conclusion,
-4 card:Nature's Spiral +4 Genesis Wave
-3 Fog +3 card:Green Sun's Zenith
Sick deck, I like it alot
August 5, 2011 3:19 p.m.
I like your ideas and I just came back to this to cut Quest for Renewal down to 3. Certainly helps with the win-con of the deck. As soon as I get paid I'll invest in 4 more Genesis Wave s, 3 [Green Sun's Zenith"s and a couple more Doubling Chant s.
Thanks for the advice.
August 5, 2011 3:23 p.m.
Maybe you could throw a couple Fireball s in there as an alternate win condition. You don't have to splash red, just use the Elvish Harbinger to get a red mana. And I know he's not a druid, but using Liege of the Tangle to turn all your opponents lands into 8/8 creatures after you take them would be funny.
August 5, 2011 3:34 p.m.
Nissa Revane 's ultimate would be awesome in this deck.
August 5, 2011 3:51 p.m.
Liege of the Tangle would be an awesome win-con. I like that.
August 5, 2011 3:52 p.m.
So I heard you needed a win condition for this deck. If you are planning on winning with damage, Primordial Hydra or Gelatinous Genesis are the cards for you. Of course, if you want something REALLY cool, I suggest Helix Pinnacle
August 6, 2011 10:17 a.m.
August 6, 2011 11:15 a.m.
...and I thought elves were already damn annoying, but now they take my lands? Also, how about Ezuri, Renegade Leader?
August 6, 2011 2:08 p.m.
I run a druid deck myself and what I've done for an alternate win condition is to add high CC cards like Blightsteel Colossus , Darksteel Colossus , and Eldrazi Conscription . I usually have more than enough mana to play them by turn 5 at the most, and it's something that really surprises people. Nobody expects a Llanowar Elf to have annihilator, and if you can take their lands first before attacking then it becomes a little unfair. Genesis Wave and Doubling Chant together in here should work really well though.
August 6, 2011 3:17 p.m.
By the way, you know you have 20 lands but 66 cards total, right? How well does that work?
August 6, 2011 3:18 p.m.
I really like the idea of Helix Pinnacle as a win-con, fits nicely with the subtle theme of the deck but, I think that Eldrazi Conscription could really pay off with the theme of the deck as well. So, I'll have to figure out which I think would work better. That or, yeah Ezuri since I'll have so much mana. Also think something like Harmonize could really help in the mid-game.
Also with 20 lands and this many mana-generators, you'd be surprised at well it actually does work. On top of that, hitting 7 druids with Gilt-Leaf Archdruid on turn 4 or 5 makes it pretty easy to keep up (or steal up, as it were.)
August 6, 2011 4:03 p.m.
With all your creatures, an Asceticism or two may not be too bad even if it's just sideboard. Like the deck though. +1
August 6, 2011 8:13 p.m.
Liege of the Tangle is a fun card I use in my deck why just take their land I'm going to kill you with them too. and then I use Kamahl, Fist of Krosa to give them trample just in case of chump blockers.
August 6, 2011 11:46 p.m.
For a ton more mana why not throw in a Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger ?
August 7, 2011 3:51 a.m.
August 10, 2011 3:47 p.m.
I'm new to standard, and when I used to play standard it was original Mirrodin Block, so I have missed a lot. But I must say when I saw that Helix Pinnacle I literally chuckled. This deck looks like a whole lot of fun, to play and certainly not to play against haha
August 10, 2011 7:47 p.m.
Personally, I love Eldrazi (surprising, I know) but how about Joraga Warcaller for the win? I'd take out Greenweaver Druid for him, since a fully-leveled Treespeaker will allow any other elf to replace Greenweaver's slot. I like Ezuri too. Door of Destinies could also work.
August 10, 2011 10:37 p.m.
I really like the idea of using Door of Destinies but, I think I'm going to try and use Helix Pinnacle as a win-con for the time being. I just need help figuring out what I need to take out in place of 2 to 3 of them.
That said, if it doesn't work out I'd probably add Door of Destinies
August 10, 2011 11:05 p.m.
Maybe some Primordial Hydra s. This is fun, and I can imagine what your friends must do when you play this against them.
August 11, 2011 1:07 a.m.
August 11, 2011 1:43 a.m.
Omnath, Locus of Mana so you can ramp mana every turn and use it to win with helix pinnacle.
August 12, 2011 2:57 p.m.
drop Lignify as a whole it doesn't need to be here. then move Naturalize to sideboard, that will put you at a even 60. then cut x1 card:Green Sun's Zenith , x1 Doubling Chant , and x1 Genesis Wave for x3 Helix Pinnacle
August 12, 2011 7:36 p.m.
I really love the idea of this deck. I am going to run with it and try a couple of tweaks. just trying to figure out a sideboard for it. I'm still not sure if I want to do the Helix Pinnacle though. Thought about running Canopy Cover to help get through.
August 12, 2011 7:47 p.m.
@Ancient tales, I agree with moving Naturalize but I was keeping Lignify in the main board as some sort of creature control because I can normally take lands starting at turn 3, 4 at the latest. If there's something that would make more sense that I'm just not thinking of, I'd be glad to hear it. It's also at 66 cards on purpose - just so everyone knows.
I do really like the idea of using Omnath in combination with Helix Pinnacle too but, that also sort of makes one a moot point if you're working on the other, you know what I mean? So, I'll see how well Helix Pinnacle continues to do and otherwise, I might just use Omnath as the main win-con.

I know people are talking about "a ton more mana," but why not try Caged Sun ? It's got to be my favorite mana accelerator ever. Not only will it make all Forests pull double duty, but it makes all green creature a little bit bigger. Obviously it's not THAT much more mana, since it only ups basic lands, but still, that extra +1/+1 for green creatures.
August 12, 2011 11:54 p.m.
Well, on top of the boost the deck only runs Forests so, Caged Sun might not be a terrible idea. The real issue would be where to put it and what to swap for it.
August 13, 2011 1:04 a.m.
Ahaha you should have so much mana from your creatures, Caged Sun is just overkill. I see no reason for it. After playtesting this a Lot, I actually just took out almost all of the sorceries and enchantments and went pretty much entirely creature based.
Timberwatch Elf and Wellwisher aren't druids, but just beast elves in general. Chameleon Colossus is both an elf and a druid, and an easy output for all that mana and turns into an incredible beater really quickly. Slapping an Eldrazi Conscription onto him is pretty much game unless they have some form of spot removal. Here's my version:
August 13, 2011 2:07 p.m.
August 14, 2011 5:41 p.m.
aser27 the Helix Pinnacle has shroud so it can't be targeted. But the deck is susceptible to creature removal. Could sideboard some Canopy Cover s for removal heavy decks though. I made a take off of this deck for my casual play group without the Helix Pinnacle s. Take a look if you want and see what you think Elvish Thievery. Thanks
August 15, 2011 12:43 a.m.
August 16, 2011 2:57 p.m.
Well, this deck is pretty tight, but it doesn't hold up to Legacy Burn. I do like your deck, though. Simple strategy, with simple cards that pwn all.
August 16, 2011 10:49 p.m.
August 17, 2011 5:40 p.m.
I am having a hard time typing this, cause i am ROFLMAO right now, considering i just playtested this againts my friend's Mono Green Landfall deck (really fast, impressive speed actually) (and yes, we have no problem using laptops to play magic) His Face WAS PRICELESS he wanted to rage me so hard, But he couldn't cause he was LAUGHING HIS ASS OFF!!! +1 if for nothing else, then the giggles and fun (P.S, I won, by the way) ;)
August 17, 2011 5:50 p.m.
But as per trolling, Garruk and Liege are the best. I'd say just one of each in place of two of your Greenweaver Druid s. I really wish I was allowed to give you more than just +1! This deck looks beautiful, especially in multiplayer!
August 17, 2011 7:36 p.m.
This deck is hilarious in multiplayer, trust me.
@drizzt102, I'm glad you got a kick out of playing it. It's a fun one, right?
Right now the win con is Helix Pinnacle but, I've found that I can rotate that for Eldrazi Conscription or Coat of Arms and still troll hard while winning simultaneously. I've been considering running Garruk, Primal Hunter in that spot as well. A mid-game multiplayer Primal Hunter ultimate is pretty funny. I just need to buy my own set.
August 17, 2011 8:11 p.m.
so maybe as a wincon you could play Overwhelming Stampede , Triumph of the Hordes , or Overrun . the stampede would be really devastating if you had an archdruid out, since he would most likely be a 6/6. also, i think you should replace the Greenweaver Druid s with Fyndhorn Elves (erratad to elf druid)
August 18, 2011 7:19 a.m.
oh i forgot that archduid pumps other stuff not himself..... in that case overwhelming stampede isnt such a good idea.
August 18, 2011 11:17 a.m.
August 19, 2011 1:54 a.m.
I generally hate elves cause there very annoying with stuff like this. That generally means this a amazing deck. +1 and +1 respect
August 19, 2011 1:03 p.m.
August 20, 2011 5:33 a.m.
This is an absolutely insane deck, I just can't beat that mana ramp, even Lotus Cobra doesn't compare.
I would suggest Thousand-Year Elixir because then you can cast more spells after genesis wave / doubling chant, and you can almost double your Archdruid by untapping it.
August 21, 2011 10:13 p.m.
dont stand a chance agains my modern deck:artifacts-inundation
April 21, 2012 4:46 p.m.
I found a third option for you: Turbo Troll Mode (possibly Rage Mode?)
Drop Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , sideboard a bunch of Eldrazi Baddies (may I suggest the whole crew) And then add and play:
30 mana = one turn MFW moment
June 12, 2012 1:10 a.m.
You should try out Biomass Mutation for the win-con.
April 18, 2014 7:47 p.m.
Another thing you should think about is Plaguemaw Beast and Everflowing Chalice . Once you steal their lands, you play Everflowing Chalice and kick it as many times as you can and leave enough mana to play Plaguemaw Beast . Next turn, double the counters on Everflowing Chalice and repeat until you can put enough tower counters on Helix Pinnacle or whatever mana-heavy win-con you are playing.
April 23, 2014 8:46 p.m.
Instead of 3 eldrazi conscription how about add emrakul and take out a eldrazi... With the amount of mana you can produce you could fetch with green sun's zenith or pay for his cost with genesis wave as well...
