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
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
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.
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.
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.)
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
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.
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
@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.
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:
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
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) ;)
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!
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.
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)
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.
