Selesnya Selvala is my favorite mana dork ever.

Commander / EDH* Aggro Battlecruiser GW (Selesnya) Multiplayer



Selvala Holla

The theme of the deck is utility creatures and card advantage with heavy creature synergy. Whatever that means...I guess thats a theme. I tried to use creatures wherever possible, because of the synergies they have with the creatures matters cards like See the Unwritten and Lurking Predators. All the "free creature" spells are extra fun with big Eldrazi, even though we skip the casting triggers on them.

This deck is a super power once it gets to the late game and Selvala helps you get there fast. It's not uncommon for her to provide 2-3 mana when tapped, which can mean 6-7 mana on turn 4 without using any ramp spells. She is so awesome if she never dies, it feels unfair. Activating her every turn is amazing... I think since everyone gets to draw a card together, it often seems o.k. to my opponents to let it happen every turn. It's not a symmetrical effect. The house always wins or something.

Untapping effects like Instill Energy are AMAZING with her. I always say "It's Parley Time". This deck is positively dripping with card advantage. Between Parleys and the other cards in the deck that provide card advantage I feel like I can't ever run out of gas, and I always have an answer to what my opponent is up to.
