Infinite mana!!! —Feb. 25, 2018

Rings of Brighthearth was suggested to me due to infinite mana possibilities within the deck. So i dropped Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip due to it underperforming and bring a constant target before it can transform.

I have a sort of (incredibly) poor-man's version of this deck with Yisan, the Wanderer Bard as my commander. I search out ramp creatures like Llanowar Elves or Whisperer of the Wilds with him, use either him or ramp to bring out big creatures, and use fighting with things like Savage Punch or Ulvenwald Tracker as my source of removal.

After sifting through this deck a bit, I wondered if you had any (preferably low cost) mono-green cards you could recommend based on what I'm assuming is a lot of experience and also what you thought of Yisan himself, since it looks like you don't have one. He's done amazing work for me, especially since I got him for free at a random garage sale.

Yisan is a great card, my only problem is that he can only creatures with cmc equal to the number or verse counters, not equal or less. That's the only reason i don't run him. As for some good green cards that are budget friendly, there's a lot. Nacatl War-Pride is one of my favorites. Rampaging Baloths is great, so is Pathbreaker Ibex. Arbor Colossus, Elderscale Wurm, Engulfing Slagwurm, Foe-Razer Regent, Greenwarden of Murasa, Oran-Rief Hydra, Regal Force, Siege Behemoth, Thunderfoot Baloth, Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, Rishkar's Expertise, Selvala's Stampede, Harmonize, any of the Garruk or Nissa planeswalkers that are affordable. There's a bunch more, but I'm tired and need to go to bed. If you need ideas for cards that do specific things that are budget friendly let me know and I'd be happy to help

Half of those are in already, but I'm liking what I see in the other half. I'll see about making room for Thunderfoot Baloth, Selvala's Stampede, Rishkar's Expertise, and Nacatl War-Pride. My main concern with my Yisan deck as it stands right now is that between Yisan, Hibernation's End, Elemental Bond, Garruk's Packleader, etc. I might have a little TOO much draw. However, I'm scared to take any of it out. Some part of my instincts scream whenever I try.

Funny, your mana curve looks almost exactly like mine! Looks like a fun deck. +1

Thanks! The curve seems to work perfect almost every game. Especially since I added Lotus Cobra

I bet a really sexy angel deck made by a super handsome dude could beat this deck.

Thanks! It is a blast to play. Still my favorite deck after 7 years of playing it.

i got a few suggestions for you.

Bow of Nylea by giving your creatures Deathtouch only 1 damage is needed to kill creatures and the rest will go over if they have trample. (which is most likely)

Slime Molding an easy 10/10 creature token with all that ramp.

Hydra Broodmaster a pump and a token spitter at the same time.

Heroes' Bane will get bigger every time you pump him with mana.

Scourge of Skola Vale eat your other creatures to make him bigger. plus starts with trample.

Breaker of Armies force all of your opponents creatures to block him and him only while everyone else goes through.

Archetype of Endurance gives everyone hexproof and shuts up any other deck that uses hexproof.

Thank you for the suggestions ticked-off-squirrel.

  • Bow of Nylea - I've considered putting this in the deck for awhile now, I'm testing out a couple of newer cards in the same cmc spot first, but it will eventually find a home.
  • Slime Molding - this card doesn't fit the strategy of the deck. I have to dump a lot of mana into a sorcery to get a token that does nothing but provide a big body. Which isn't needed with my commander since I can make all of my creatures have big bodies.
  • Hydra Broodmaster/Heroes' Bane - I've never been a fan of hydras for this deck, they take a lot of mana to make them viable which takes away from my primary game plan. I don't need 1 or 2 big creatures that cost a lot of mana to make, when I can just use that mana to kill everyone with my elves and utility creatures.
  • Scourge of Skola Vale - I'm not built to sacrifice my creatures sustainably and want to avoid it at all costs, however this card will be amazing in a Kresh the Bloodbraided deck I'm working on, so thank you for the suggestion.
  • Breaker of Armies - I don't run eldrazi in this deck and never will. And Nacatl War-Pride provides the same advantage while making it easier to provide lethal damage when buffed by Kamahl.
  • Archetype of Endurance - I'm on the fence with this card because of the cmc, I really don't want to add another super high cost card into the deck, but i can't deny what he could bring for survivability, so I'm gonna have to playtest and see what I can come up with.

Thanks again for the suggestions

Maybe Natural Order? Seems like a broken card

January 28, 2018 2:47 p.m.

Kamerot says... #18

It is, and I've considered putting it in the deck for a long time. I just don't know what I would take out for it.

darklord1135 says... #19

Primalcrux just seems like a big creature with trample that can be removed with nearly anything but not strong enough to end games. This was a problem I found in my ramp-stomp type decks. I am glad to see that this deck has a better gameplan then mine

Yeah, except his value comes from the devotion he adds from his casting cost. I gain a lot of mana from Karametra's Acolyte and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. He also pairs extremely well with Selvala, Heart of the Wilds for huge mana gains. It's been my main go to from Defense of the Heart and been unstoppable, especially early game. But I'm still considering taking him out because he doesn't add any other value by himself.

darklord1135 says... #21

Oh I see! Makes sense. How about Tajuru Preserver. Seems like a lot of the time it is useless for the slot it takes up. Also running a Llanowar Elves would be good too because those one mana dorks are too good.

January 28, 2018 8:23 p.m.

Kamerot says... #22

My playgroup run a lot of decks that run Grave Pact and similar effects, so unfortunately he's viable almost every game I play. Otherwise I never would have added him. As for Llanowar Elves, I run Elvish Mystic and Fyndhorn Elves instead because I like the art better. Lol

Helo, nice deck!
Have you thought about running Rings of Brighthearth? Will combo with Kamahl, Mimic Vat, both Planeswalkers and you would be able to get infinite mana with Deserted Temple untaping Itlimoc, Gaea's Cradle or Nykthos.
