Said on The Stampede - ......

#1

denis1198 I have tried Instill Energy , Woodland Bellower and all the aforementioned cards, aside from Rhonas the Indomitable . Fierce Empath is a dead draw in many games and is not efficient enough to net wins: a three mana tutor is not something we need, particularly when it only fetches Great Oak Guardian (within my list). Hall of Gemstone is a strictly defensive option for a different deck. Though it's ability is nice, many players will be operating with a series of rocks to net the mana sufficient to play counter magic. Also, it's a World Enchantment; part of our win condition is using Concordant Crossroads to finish our opponents off on Turn 3. HoG will immediately be replaced. Fauna Shaman is a lesser Survival of the Fittest , which we operate with. While Shaman can be tutored for, you can see how it's counter-productive to simply obtaining the card we actually need with all of our Creature Tutors. Primal Command in many cases is an overly-expensive Tutor. The loop with it & Eternal Witness is just as unnecessary to our success as the Beast Within loop I explained here. It's what you would consider a "Win More," while we're only really looking to "Win." Priest of Titania is insurance for Selvala and strictly Plan B. She's extraneous in our deck list. Our game should be centered around using Selvala for victory. While her potential to ramp (in some deck versions) is decent, it is no substitute for Selvala. Between all of our current options for ramp, sticking with Plan A - casting & using Selvala - is always the priority and easily achievable. Dosan the Falling Leaf would be a much better consideration to fit into the deck, or Prowling Serpopard , as either of these (particularly Dosan) will help us Combo out on our turn and do so unaffected by our foes. However, even these are wanting in the list currently... I've tried about everything. Rhonas is fine, but would only act as a substitute for Wayward Swordtooth who is superior. The Swordtooth's ability to play an additional land can help us achieve the mana we need in a given turn to go off, via utilities such as Quirion Ranger & Scryb Ranger . Bouncing the Forest and being able to play them again is a larger benefit than paying three mana to net +2/+0 from Rhonas. Those synergies are more valuable to consider. Thanks for the comments/considerations!
