I have a very similar deck. I think yours would work better with Overgrown Battlement instead of the birds, or at least substituting two birds for two Battlements, since the Battlements stack nicely with your Sylvan Caryatid. Other than that, I wondered, who do you manage to defend against heavily flying decks?
December 29, 2014 7:09 p.m.
@Oakenwind Thanks for the feedback. I like running a playset of birds for the mana diversity, 1-drop spot, and late game flying blocker for when I don't need the mana. Heavy flying decks are tough, should I try to include some flying removal in the sideboard, like Skyreaping?
January 3, 2015 3:30 p.m.
Hey, Skyreaping is pretty rad. Also good against flyers in general work: Gravity Well, which does, of course, not remove them, but solves the problem long-time. A more expensive, but repeatable version of Skyreaping. is the Silklash Spider, which I sideboard, becaus it's pretty cheap-money wise, does the trick well and also synergies well with Doran as a 2/7. Apart from that, Cloudcrown Oak has reach, so he's cool if there's only two or three smaller creatures that fly and you don't have to give away creature damage. Apart from that, there's also Plummet. Lots of input for a sideboard, I know :>
January 3, 2015 4:40 p.m.
@Oakenwind, I really appreciate the suggestions! I'll try to incorporate those in my sideboard.
January 3, 2015 10:17 p.m.
Have a Doran deck? Need flying help? Your best friend is Tower Defense.
January 11, 2015 12:15 a.m.
@DobeNode, I have never actually seen that card. Thank you for opening my eyes, good sir.
January 11, 2015 12:18 a.m.
January 11, 2015 12:19 a.m.
@Teal_Fox, Thanks for the suggestion. I was thinking about that before, I just kind of forgot about it. I'll switch the two out.
January 11, 2015 12:28 a.m.
Skinshifter to be a 8/8 beat stick when Doran is out, may not be treefolk, but too good to pass up.
January 21, 2015 8:24 p.m.
Maybe you should run less removal and more hand disrruption or a draw engine.

January 23, 2015 8:19 p.m.
lol, i love doran. made a tiny leaders treefolk tribal deck with him
January 24, 2015 8 p.m.
Indomitable Ancients Is insane in conjunction with Doran. Just something to consider.
January 25, 2015 3:30 p.m.
@cannon_Spectacle I used to have that in here, but i removed it for Skinshifter. The two white in the Indomitable Ancients's mana cost was a bit of a problem sometimes, and I like the diversity of Skinshifter when doran isn't out. Then again, Indomitable Ancients does fit the tribe and does a bit more damage with doran.
January 25, 2015 5:07 p.m.
Have you considered using Tasigur? He has decent synergy due to being a shaman.
January 25, 2015 5:24 p.m.
@butlersex I appreciate the suggestion, but I don't think he would quite fit into the deck. I don't really have any cards that benefit from having a large graveyard, and his cost is a bit steep because I usually won't have too many cards in the graveyard.
January 25, 2015 5:30 p.m.
January 27, 2015 3:52 p.m.
@bigguy99, I've debated keeping those in, but I like always having an easy way to get rid of creatures that are causing me trouble. I'll consider taking them out, though.
January 27, 2015 3:55 p.m.
I was just thinking that everything that dies to either of those also dies to O-Ring so it's a bit redundant in addition to the fact that it can get removed later. It's also more mana investment on your turn (do non-control decks even care about that?). If it works for you then by all means keep it in, but I don't have much experience with it so I was just wondering.
January 27, 2015 3:57 p.m.
January 27, 2015 3:58 p.m.
What do you think about Kin-Tree Invocation in this deck?
January 27, 2015 4:01 p.m.
Sapling of Colfenor seems way too slow. Now that you mention it, Siege Rhino seems great just because it's an all-around good card. You could try squeezing in Maelstrom Pulse or Hero's Downfall, but like I said I've no experience with the deck. Kin-Tree Invocation looks like fun.
January 27, 2015 4:04 p.m.
I'm actually surprised you don't have a Tree of Redemption in here. I know its not a treefolk/shaman, but 13 damage for 4 is evil, plus emergency life gain.
February 1, 2015 1:44 p.m.
@ratatat11, I've never thought of Tree of Redemption. Thanks for the suggestion, Ill consider including that. Im considering making a non-tribal Doran, the Siege Tower deck, that could easily go in there.

I love you sir/madam. Please, have my first born child as a token of my appreciation for this deck. And teach my child to be a good magic player plz

I made a non-tribal one, I'm glad Dora the Explorer-Tower Is competitive again. Dolan - erm, DoRan.

Asceticism kind of sucks in modern, Although I'm not sure what you'd run instead. Maybe Autumn's Veil?

I made TreeSiege 2.0 and I've been working on it for a while. The non-inclusion of Spellskite is a big issue. Timber Protector is way too high mana cost and just is a "win more" instead of a win condition.
February 18, 2015 11:22 a.m.
Timber Protector actually works great in this deck, and is pretty easy to get out with all my ramp. It protects the opponent from killing my Doran, and incase I don't manage to get Doran out, it functions as an alternative win con. I've been considering Spellskite for awhile, but I'm not sure what to take out.
February 19, 2015 3:20 p.m.
This deck looks like so much fun! +1 from me, I'm definitely going to build this!
March 4, 2015 6:40 p.m.
I was looking at this deck again because it's so much fun.
I just have one question:
Any thoughts on Assault Formation from the new set? Do you think you'll find a place for it in here or is the deck fine the way it is?
March 12, 2015 1:14 p.m.
@Hydrax, When I saw that card spoiled, I immediately thought of this deck. But when I considered it further, I realized that it wouldn't actually provide much usefulness for me. The vast majority of times I am able to get Doran out fairly quickly. As for the other effects of the card, the defender part would be worthless, and the damage bonus would really only benefit me in a few situations.
Nonetheless, a appreciate the suggestion and positive feedback.

+1!!! Bile Blight- Dismember- Cloudshift!?!

Have you considered Nameless Inversion or Crib Swap for removal? They both work with kinship and the mana cost reduction. I'd go with inversion because Bosk Banneret essentially makes it a lightning bolt that doesn't target players, but crib may be better if your meta has a lot of high toughness creatures.
October 26, 2016 12:44 a.m.
Is this mostly casual or competitive?
If competitive, you pretty much need to run at least 1 Assault Formation. Virtually every competitive deck will immediately remove your Doran, the Siege Tower from the field. Even when Spellskite wasn't a 4/4, it was OP. It also protects your Doran and massacres Infect, Burn, Bogles, and formerly Twin (may it rest in peace). Tower Defense is an amazing finisher as mentioned before. Your choice to max Birds of Paradise is great; they shore up your weakness to flying, and are the most powerful dork to begin with.
Most of my suggestions are the same as tournament finishes for Modern Doran, FYI.

First of all, love the name! Great deck and something I've always wanted to sleeve up myself. I would consider Noble Hierarch before Birds, and then SB Lingering Souls. Also, I'm not loving your mana base. I'm no expert, but I think you have too many pain lands.
If you get a chance check out my deck Abzan Beatdown. Maybe you can glean something from my mana base that will help you. Also, I use Stirring Wildwood which, not only keeps with your theme, blocks fliers. And, while you are there, I would love some feed back on what I am trying to do!
