Maybe instead of Commune with the Gods you could use Idyllic Tutor, it's a bit slower but you surely get your Worship. And have you ever looked at the card: Lumbering Falls. You could make it a creature in your opponents turn so he can attack you with whatever he wants if you have Worship on the field.

Aless55 So, I'm really thinking about Lumbering Falls. Now that you mentioned it, I've considered it before and forgot completely about it. I think one of the things that made me apprehensive about it was (aside the mana pie and the fact I need G and W more than U) the activation cost.
Then again, it is so easy for my opponents to interact with Wildwood, seeing they wont use their removal on anything else...
I'll test it out, thanks for the suggestion.
OH, about tutor: I'm using commune instead of tutor because it fetches for creatures also. If I have a Worship in hand or field already, tutor is absolutely useless (removal on DSphere isn't worth, most of the times). Commune with the gods fulfil it's role perfectly because it searches for both my needs: Worship and creatures. But in the two FNMs I've played with the deck, Commune served more to fetch me a finisher (Ojutai or Sigarda) than Worship itself.
Thanks a lot for the comment!

This, good sir, is awesome. +1 earned.
May 10, 2016 11:14 a.m.
Oh my! I cannot tell how much I forgot about Time of Need. I'll be testing it out right away!
On Always Watching : I did think about it, but it seeme a tad overkill (since only Ojutai REALLY needs it). Because the deck is so crippled with needs (like card digging and better creatures), I tried to balance it out the best and added Minamo as a pseudo-vigilance. The +1/+1 would be great, but there isn't much card space for it.
Dauntless Escort and Day of Judgement seem kind of a hard setup. I'd honestly rather have Cyclonic Rift. I've been thinking a lot about a wrath effect lately, but I'd probably use Supreme Verdict. Even so, I'll give it a try.
Thanks for the support seshiro!

Aye, tis true. I didn't add it to the maybe list because it's way too hard to find in my country (and forgot completely about it). Although the objective of Hurkil's is solely breaking affinity, I do thing Stony will help me with other stuff present at the meta, so i'll do some testing with it.

dotytron That's an interesting suggestion. It does help out quite perfectly, both + and -. In Tamiyo's case, I think the CMC will be kind of forbidding. Since I have a pair around, i'll test it on the next FNM and share the results. Thanks!

Slippery Bogle? 1 drop 1/1 hexproof. Cheaper than your other hexproof creatures
November 23, 2016 12:41 p.m.
Hello disarmingquartz. So, Slippery Bogle does nothing in this deck, as this deck does not have any kind of pumps. It would be just a makeshift "shield", but it isn't hard at all to hit the real beaters in this midrange deck.

Maybe the Simic Manland Lumbering Falls can serve you better than the Selesnya one. it's a 3/3 with hexproof, hard to remove and a actual good blocker.

Enlightened Tutor is even better, allowing you to search for worship as a one-drop plains instant. If you'd like to get Worship in your hand, you need an Enlightened Tutor in there. It is also a modern legal card if you get it from Eternal Masters.
March 29, 2017 5:36 p.m.
TMSandro4 Appreciate for the input! So on Enlightened Tutor, it isn't modern legal (only cards that were Standard legal while modern border are modern legal also. That's why commander only cards are not legal in modern). There is Idyllic Tutor instead, but I'm just not willing to pay it's price.

I loved your deck! You just restored my hope, because I'm trying to make Troll Worship deck works into competitive scenario for quite some time. Good to know more people are trying too!
Let's help each other then, mate!
For early game survival against fast decks (Burn, Burn and... Burn), I'm seriously thinking of Unflinching Courage. The problem is: what cards can we drop?
August 29, 2017 2:24 p.m.
So Noble Hierarch is strictly better! But I can't get my hands on a set, so I haven't included it in my list. Against burn, if your meta is strong, I'd recommend dropping Sigarda on this version of the deck for anything you use to counter red. Sigarda is usually a big beater with a good protection against black and tron. Against burn it's a beater and nothing more. If you can play on the control side, Ojutai will eventually be your finisher.
Now, I have to say that Unflinching Courage might be too slow to counter burn.
September 15, 2017 6:06 p.m.
Thanks for the response, mate.
Oh, so true about Noble Hierarch. There're plenty of them in my town, but each one costs an arm and a leg...
After more casuals and FNM, I realized that Burn's not a problem. When Worship comes in play, it's pretty much over. I'm having a hard time to deal against discard decks. That made me think about just one Soulflayer splash (or sideboard). And this creature has a nice combo with Commune with the Gods. What do you think?
