How to play Squirrels!:

Play a Squirrel.

Then look at it, then look at your opponent.

Play another squirrel and another.

Then you wait for 2 seconds and play your fourth squirrel.

And for the final, play 6mil squirrels and steal your opponent's pride and then his nuts!

I wish this card was real!!!

Ooooooooh, we finally hit 1000 upvotes. Thank you all so much for liking this deck, no matter what deck I make, will this one always be my favorite.

Now, if Wizards would just make some more squirrels, then that would be amazing. Once again, thank you all for your support <3!

ohh ok thank you for the help i was wondering about that FOR A LONG TIME as its like a 3rd of the price for next to the same thing

BainbridgeYew: In response to you casting Whelming Wave would I just tap a squirrel to untap the land enchanted with Squirrel Nest, let your spell resolve, then after everything has been returned to the hands, then I'll tap the forest for a 1/1 squirrel token and then create my army of squirrels once again. Easiest way to counter this combo is to just destroy the enchantments before I activate 'em. c:

is there any removal that can kill these invincible squirrels

November 28, 2015 6:03 p.m.

BainbridgeYew: Wouldn't it just be easier to use a Naturalize on one of my combo pieces before I can activate 'em? That way wouldn't you hurt yourself too with a Tragic Arrogance c:

November 29, 2015 4:57 p.m.

ok so that's a way to win but what happens if your opponent is agro and wins before your combo is there any counter im trying to see how the deck does against faster decks and I really cant do that on tapped out

November 29, 2015 9:24 p.m.

This deck fails quite a lot against faster decks, as it usually takes about 3-5 turns to work, but don't underestimate this deck without it's combo. a Deranged Hermit can still be quite the threat, especially for aggro based decks.

November 30, 2015 5:42 p.m.

I love the fact that 6 Million squirrels is actually possible due to the infinite combo in the deck.

December 22, 2015 7:47 a.m.

How does it work against 2-3 players?

January 15, 2016 10:42 a.m.

Who do you think you are, squirrel girl?


Well anyway, cool deck, i'm sure no one expects it coming.

January 18, 2016 3:11 a.m.

I'm better than Squirrel Girl, I am THE Lord of the Squirrels!

January 20, 2016 6:48 p.m.

Stoneforge Masterwork?

Even stronger squirrels :o

February 11, 2016 3:58 a.m.

helpivefallen Coat of Arms does the exact same thing but instead it works for every creature.

February 11, 2016 11:19 a.m.

Well, Stoneforge Masterwork is still kinda cool, imagine a armoured Squirrel Mob !!

February 11, 2016 3:04 p.m.


February 12, 2016 6:05 p.m.

Only 2 Swarmyards? (p.s I'm sorry if someone has already said this; I just don't want to wade through 143 other comments right now).

March 19, 2016 4:37 p.m.

By the way, you should play with the idea of a curve in mind.

March 19, 2016 4:38 p.m.

I don't feel that more than 2 swarmyards does make a big difference, also, I only have 2, they're somewhat hard to find as barely anyone have 'em.

March 22, 2016 7:16 a.m.

Any thoughts on why someone might be seeing the cards all read as "Dingus Egg" and not the actual card?

March 22, 2016 8:58 p.m.

TheRedGoat: It seems like it's like that on most decks on the site at moment, maybe a dev joke of sorts?

March 22, 2016 9:09 p.m.

With so many enchantments, have you considered either Argothian Enchantress or Eidolon of Blossoms?

March 22, 2016 11:13 p.m.

I really don't think there is enough enchantments to run those cards properly.

March 23, 2016 7:38 a.m.

This deck needs more squirrels.

April 4, 2016 7:01 a.m.

There sadly aren't more squirrels that is worth using. Cards like Liege of the Hollows, Nantuko Shrine and Acorn Catapult simply doesn't cut it, I dont' want my opponents to be the ones with my mighty squirrels! And then there is Krosan Beast, but he sadly worn't last long and it does take time to build up the threshold.

April 4, 2016 7:14 a.m.

this might just be me being stupid, but where is the infinite combo in this? you also need Doubling Season

April 4, 2016 6:32 p.m.

Wurmlover: The infinite combo is in Earthcraft and Squirrel Nest, Tap land to make a squirrel, tap squirrel with Earthcraft to untap land with the Squirrel Nest and repeat. c:

Doubling Season is not worth it in this deck, it's also very boring and don't offer anything else, I'd rather use Parallel Lives which I have in the sideboard if people want me to swap out the Earthcraft as it's banned in legacy and restricted in vintage.

April 4, 2016 6:42 p.m.

don't tokens have summoning sickness? are they allowed to tap?

April 4, 2016 6:44 p.m.

Wurmlover: Yes, the squirrels have summoning sickness, but they're still untapped. Earthcraft doesn't care if they have summoning sickness or not, as long it can just tap 'em. Now, if the squirrels had a tap effect on 'em saying "Tap this to untap a land", then the combo wouldn't work, but as Earthcraft is the one tapping 'em, is there no problem c:

Infinite Squirrels on turn 3!!!!!

Infinite Squirrels on turn 3

April 9, 2016 8:38 p.m.

I run at least one copy of Power Matrix in my squirrel deck. Having a flying, first strike and trample squirrel mob coming at you is awesome. Get's around cards like crawl space.

June 8, 2016 3:44 p.m.

I really want Wizards to make a Squirrels vs. Rats duel deck, I actually made one with my friend, but it is pretty terrible. Check it out if you want :)

Rat vs. Squirrel Duel Decks: Squirrel

June 13, 2016 3:10 p.m.

Have you considered putting a Green Sun's Zenith in this deck? And have you done the math for how much this deck would cost?

June 26, 2016 10:16 a.m.

I already own all the cards, got 'em a loooooong time ago, so I can't really remember how much I spend on it, but it does show the pricing up in right side of the deck. And I don't really own a Green Sun's Zenith but it surely could be a good card in this deck, for a more surprise Deranged Hermit or something c:

June 26, 2016 6:42 p.m.

I know your deck doesn't really need it, but you could try to sneak in a Form of the Squirrel I imagine you would already have some buff squirrels and the ability to spawn them without spells and then you can avoid any counter spells or surprise attacks from the air. Plus it would be pretty cool if you just embraced the squirrel and took the Form of the Squirrel.

July 5, 2016 4:23 p.m.

Namur_Ramur: Oh trust me, I used to have that card in the deck and I still have a copy laying around just in case. c:

July 5, 2016 5:41 p.m.

I gotta say this deck would drive me nuts! Anyway, squirrel puns aside, I must say I like how the deck plays overall, rather than just sitting around for a combo. Also, the Vigor in your deck is a nice touch.

July 11, 2016 5:31 p.m.

So my friends are saying don't get this deck because it is waste of money and i really like it and i want to build my own but idk is it really worth a squirrel deck?

July 24, 2016 3:06 a.m.

Quinnagin27: I personally love it, but to be honest, I don't really play with it that much as one of the things that makes this deck good, is a card that is banned in Legacy and restricted in Vintage ( I'm looking at you, Earthcraft ). It all really depends on how you want to play, are you going pure casual? Aiming to do more serious play? If you're in the latter, then this deck might not be worth it c:

July 24, 2016 6:57 a.m.

is a million squirrels worth it why wouldn't it be

July 26, 2016 5:46 p.m.

Millions of squirrels is always worth it. The deck is still good even without Earthcraft and if anyone complains about it, then just swap it out with a Parallel Lives. It really hurts the opponent when you play a Parallel Lives and then follow it up with a Deranged Hermit

July 27, 2016 5 a.m.

im sad now that wizards still hasn't made your planeswalker a thing since my old comments its been months.

July 27, 2016 9:35 p.m.

Well, such is life, I heavily doubt there will be more squirrels. Just gonna make my own instead!

July 28, 2016 4:12 a.m.

gonna spam wizards to add more now

July 28, 2016 9:29 p.m.

gratz on a thousand

August 28, 2016 9:07 p.m.

also the fact that this deck somehow got under your rakdos folder astonishes me

August 28, 2016 9:09 p.m.

I don't think I have a Rakdos folder?

hail to the lord of squirrels!!!!!

September 1, 2016 6:57 p.m.

Gaea's Cradle is awesome in this deck

September 7, 2016 1:30 p.m.

Maybe, but not for the price it costs :D

September 7, 2016 3:28 p.m.


September 7, 2016 8:40 p.m.

well if you have eight copies which one of my friends do its fine lol

September 9, 2016 6:25 p.m.

Hey Infral...I freaking love this deck. Thank you for making this...

September 14, 2016 7:49 p.m.

Squirrels were my dream deck but i only knew of Squirrel nest i fucking love this

October 3, 2016 6:44 p.m.

How about Rhys the Redeemed to double the squirrel tokens?

November 8, 2016 4:40 p.m.
November 14, 2016 5:51 p.m.

Bro, I like your deck. It's one of the earliest squirrel decks on this site, and it definitely deserves the 1000+ upvotes it has received. That being said, I still think it could use a bit more developing. Maybe adding/replacing a few card to make it legal for tournament play while still supporting the idea of infinite squirrels. I've got a maybeboard full of potential modifications on my squirrel deck, if you want to check it out (Squirrel Deck). In the meantime, you could consider adding in a Folk Medicine to your deck. It's cheap and it's an instant, so it can be used in case your opponent pulls out a 25/25 with forestwalk.

November 24, 2016 11 p.m.

You should try to make a budget version of this. Could be interesting.

January 5, 2017 1:08 p.m.

Anything i could do to make this more budget?

January 7, 2017 11:31 p.m.

Wait does earthcraft and squirrel nest actually do that infinite combo like people say it does or do you have to wait till next turn to tap creature

January 24, 2017 7:59 p.m.

You can tap a creature with Earthcraft on the turn it enters the battlefield.

January 25, 2017 11:04 a.m.

make a modern version of this deck!! (if that is possible)

February 16, 2017 7:11 a.m.

It sadly isn't possible to make a modern version of this.

February 24, 2017 6:10 p.m.

Have you considered splashing black or white for tutors/enchantment tutors? It seems like this deck basically runs off of the combo, so why not get it as early as possible?

March 22, 2017 3:06 p.m.

ever think about adding Epic Struggle

March 22, 2017 3:34 p.m.

[Quinnagin27] there is no point as a million squirrels will do the same job

March 24, 2017 3:02 p.m.

Working on getting the cards for my squirrel deck. Yours looks to be a little more hardy then mine, but then again, from running the play test, securing turn 3-5 wins is pretty regular. With the perfect hand, turn 2-3 wins. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/22-03-17-squirrel/

Have you looked at adding Second Harvest or Vitalize in the decks? Vitalize with an early Earthcraft means double the effective mana to pump out a big spell/creature, or multiple spells.

March 27, 2017 3 p.m.

Have you thought of adding in Concordant Crossroads to your line up? It would allow for your infinite squirrels to attack the same turn you bring them out basically. It's also the only green enchant that I know of that provides haste.

July 2, 2017 3:32 a.m.

why do that its not like anything can kill them without them coming back haste just gets rid of your opponents futile efforts to survive

July 2, 2017 12:30 p.m.

Unless they are a blue deck and make all of your squirrels disappear or turn them against you.

July 4, 2017 3:14 a.m.

then you use a squirrel to untap the enchanted land and just do it after it resolves

July 6, 2017 2:42 p.m.

I would recommend Natural Order for tutor cards

December 12, 2017 12:20 p.m.

So cool, love this deck

December 30, 2017 9:38 a.m.

Could you tell me how you center the text like that? o-o
