I wanted to try and bring attention to my Selesnya deck without sounding cocky, but seeing as there's lots of other Selesnya decks out there, the cocky title was born.
Thoughts, comments, suggestions, or any other input is appreciated. This deck went 3-0 on it's first FNM and I'd like to keep it that way haha.
So far the record for games is 21-4.
Round one: 2-0 Izzet AggroI can only assume it was aggro because I never saw any instants and he kept laying chump blockers... which meant nothing to my Rancor s
Round two; 2-1 Mono White WeenieLost the first game despite getting her to 1 life haha. Brought in removal and Sigarda, Host of Herons and that was that.
Round three; 2-0 Izzet ControlBonfires are annoying but I was still able to overwhelm him and once again Sigarda was an MVP here.
+4x Loxodon Smiter
-1x Oblivion Ring
-3x Sundering Growth
+2x Oblivion Ring
+1x Selesnya Charm
I agree. Farseek seems redundant with pilgrims and elves AND 24 land. Strangleroot geist is probably better for the job. I'd recommend taking out an o-ring for a rancor maindeck as you always want reach, and probably putting two orings in your sideboard, taking out the sundering growths.
8 mana elves along with farseek seems like way too much acceleration for a deck with 24 lands. If you accelerate turn 1, you want a nice 3 drop for turn 2. Oblivion Ring is not this card, and neither is Silverblade Paladin. Definitely think this would play better with Loxodon Smiter in place of the Farseek.
Fiend Hunter would alsop help with early game controlling, and although he can only target creatures he makes a great defender (dat 1/3) while you ramp! He can also be handy late game to remove threats to your big creatures (death-touchers, big defenders, other big creatures, etc.).
Garruk has helped me so dramatically so many times, it'd be hard for me to see myself not using him. He comes in a lot especially against control, it helps me recover from wipes and keeps my hand full. Also, I do really like Thalia and if I was playing maybe a quicker version of this deck I might run her, but late game I don't think she's very significant. Thanks for the suggestions though. I appreciate it.
@V3xGambit: All the guild/shard names (from Ravnica and Alara, respectively) have become ways to describe the colors of your deck without having to list them. We're still missing five Magic-given names of the three-colors and all of the four colors (I just like to identify them by the missing color eg. (non/un/anti)-green is B/R/U/W), but there are fan-given names (Junk, America) for some.
That said, you're kinda right. When I think of Selesnya as a guild, I think tokens.
