Description

alt text

The title is a reference to the Ent in the Lord of the Ring series.

This is my first EDH deck, I tried to make it as cheap as possible while still having a decent deck. The thing I haven't really decided yet is the mana fixing, you may comment on my land choice it will be more than appreciated.

The Ents
Indomitable Ancients, Leaf-Crowned Elder, Orchard Warden, Unstoppable Ash, Timber Protector, Treefolk Harbinger, Deadwood Treefolk, Magnigoth Treefolk and Sapling of Colfenor.Most of the treefolk have a good synergy together, and if Doran, the Siege Tower is also in play they are a force to recon with. Orchard Warden and Sapling of Colfenor are some good life gainer. Unstoppable Ash really make you opponent think twice before blocking you, all creature can gain a devastating +5/+5; not part of the Ent army, Karn, Silver Golem can go from being a mere 4/4 to a insane 13/13 just by being blocked.

The Walls of Isengard
Wakestone Gargoyle, Junktroller, Angelic Wall, Crenellated Wall, Wall of Glare, Wall of Nets, Wall of Souls, Wall of Reverence, Overgrown Battlement, Wall of Tanglecord and Tree of Redemption.After having to think about blocking you, your opponents need to think about attacking you with a strong defence such as this one.

Good luck bringing down the Tower of Orthanc, the Dunedain worked hard on making that thing durable. :P

In all seriousness, I like the deck a lot! Nice work!

Awesome theme! I don't think you should be too worried about the mana base. It looks very solid to me.

This deck looks like a lot of fun, and I love the theme you chose to work with.

The typical suggestions to make would be to upgrade some of the spells, such as replacing Diabolic Tutor for Demonic Tutor and Idyllic Tutor for Enlightened Tutor . I would also suggest replacing Prismatic Omen for card:Kodama's Reach, because being able to thin your deck of lands on top of accelerating and fixing your mana is really handy for a deck without a lot of card draw. Speaking of which, Phyrexian Arena , card:Mind's Eye, and Land Tax are cards to consider if you have them.

I also wonder just how useful Animate Wall will be for you. I see why you have it in there, but you also have three other spells with similar effects. Maybe you could replace it with Sterling Grove , which can tutor Rolling Stones for you or combine with Privileged Position to make your stuff very difficult to get rid of.

As for mana fixing, Sakura-Tribe Elder , Coalition Relic , and Darksteel Ingot are good cards to consider if you feel your deck needs them.

+1 for an awesome name and commander (i love treefolk). have you thought about Ajani, Caller of the Pride . that minus three looks very nice with your creatures. have you thought about Sword of Fire and Ice ? Demonic Tutor Vampiric Tutor Imperial Seal are very good tutors. have you thought about either Leyline of Sanctity or Leyline of Lifeforce ?

Ever think about throwing in the Whomping Willow? tree of redemption with doran just suddenly fucked your opponents early game smash card.

I think Feed the Pack would be a fun card in this deck.

True, it would be a major flavor fail but the card would be fun ;)
