I think you really have a nice blueprint so far! Do you have a gameplan for a means to deal with Grafdigger's Cage / Rest in Peace / Leyline of the Void ? A splash of green in your mana base can really open up a lot of options.

I agree with your first paragraph 100% Boza... when the eldrazi were on the original zendikar it worked for me because it was new/focused... but when they were injected into innistrad... it's not that it didn't work, it just wasn't my cup of tea because I like my classic horror plane the way it was.

I really hope you are wrong/they dont put phyrexians in innistrad 3 for EVEN MORE HORROR with an infectious plague because I think that it would just be too busy/crazy flavorwise.

the thought combining of all the crazy mana fixing/acceleration and phyrexian mana associated with the eldrazi and phyrexians alone just sounds like a recipe for a seriously degenerate block/set.

If they did this karn would need to swoop in with his toy to just blow up/erase the hot mess of a plane/story hahaha.

Thininking maybe this for the Ultimate:

-8 Sacrifice a nontoken Treefolk creature you control; Creatures opponents control get -X/-X and you gain X life where X is the toughness of the sacrificed creature, Then Add any combination of to your mana pool equal to that creatures toughness.

i think a that sounds like a reasonable start too.

Sirtwigs, The Living Canopy

+1 Create a 0/4 Green Treefolk creature token.

-Xadd +0/+1 Counters to nontoken treefolk creatures you control, where is the number of loyalty counters removed from Sirtwigs, The Living Canopy.

-8 Sacrifice up to three Treefolk creatures you control; Target opponent loses 2 life and you gain 2 life, Then Add to your mana pool for each treefolk sacrificed this way.

something like that over the Gideon ability?

Casual MTG to me means/implies: Infrequent/inconsistent time for playing (somone who come in and out of the game for various lengths of time for different reasons) and or when playing they just want to play there deck that they wanna play win lose or draw.

I think I would define "Casual MTG" as: To play/build MTG decks not intended for sanctioned tournement/FNM events.... power levels and prices tags are irrelevant to a casual player IMO; most often a casual player doesnt have the money for Snapcaster Mage and Scalding Tarn but that doesnt exactly mean that they cant still be included in somones "pet deck" (whether its strong or weak).

I think being a casual player basically means a combination of the above points i said... Enjoys playing but doesnt exactly play all the time or keep up with the latest new mettas/deck techs but can still decide to buy a deck builders took kit and whip up something to play just for fun or dust off their favorite deck from years ago that they may or may not have added/taken from over the years.

Benifits of being a casual player: freedom to build as you please

detriments of being a casual: finding/maintaining a pool of people to play with... not everyone is gonna wanna play the same decks over and over and its innevitble that without a designated/sanctioned format one players deck with outshine the other to a point where it isnt fun for anyone anymore.

I've been brewing in Treefolk Tribal lately and thought it would be fun to create a flavorful Treefolk Walker.

Original Concept:

Sirtwigs, The Living Canopy

Cost:

+2 Create a 0/4 Green Treefolk creature token With Defender and Reach.

-4 Create a Legendary 0/4 White Black and Green Treefolk creature token Named "Ent-Ent" with "As long as you control Ent-Ent, you can't lose the game and your opponents can't win the game."

-8 Sacrifice up to three Treefolk creatures you control; Target opponent loses 2 life and you gain 2 life, Then Add to your mana pool for each treefolk sacrificed this way.

4

I thought An initial loyalty of 4 and having a +2 was very treefolk like in terms of having High Toughness/hard to kill with damage.

His +2 is just a wall token generator for protection which could be made into and actual threat with Assault Formation / Doran, the Siege Tower deck building synergy.

The -4 I had a hard time with and decided to rip off Gideon of the Trials 0 ability... figured it was kinda like a "Tree of life" kinda thing?

For the Final ability i wanted to avoid an emblem mechanic and encompass a bit of all of the Abzan Colors with having lifegain and lifeloss for and a mana ramp/boost for Opening up some deckbuilding flair for hard-casting a big spell or creature.

Implementation of suggestions:

Sirtwigs, The Living Canopy

+1 Create a 0/4 Green Treefolk creature token.

-Xadd +0/+1 Counters to nontoken treefolk creatures you control, where is the number of loyalty counters removed from Sirtwigs, The Living Canopy.

-8 Sacrifice a nontoken Treefolk creature you control; opponents creatures get -X/-X and you gain X life where X is the toughness of the sacrificed creature, Then Add any combination of to your mana pool equal to that creatures toughness.

What do you guys think? Does this seem fun/flavorful? Any Ideas for Improvement?

Probably the Djinn because it has a definitive job... does devotion and can outright win the game.

The specter seems cool but doesn't seem to have a surefire way to cast the spells you exile... could be good sideboard tech to consider though?

+2 Food tokens are responsible for the obesity epidemic.

+1 Elk flatulence contributions to climate change.

-5 economic inflation and depreciation of value of goods.

i feel the same way... thats exactly why i use Wrap in Vigor ... more than hafl of the time it serves the same purpose of Heroic Intervention and can buy a full playset and some fast food for the price of a single copy of Heroic intervention.

@DuTogira

I always thought non-ledendary things kinda fell into that category in the sense that Grizzly Bears were Grizzly Bears ... same species and given the same power toughness and mana cost because Magic as a Trading Card game isnt gonna be as crazy with individual states/values like Pokemon video games... so its generic for the sake of simplicity... and yet you were summoning an actual bear from another plane pseudo explaining why you can typically only have 4x of said bears in your deck to represent a sort of limited quantity/population and its transportation was the reasoning behind its "Summoning sickness."

but at the same time having Venser, Shaper Savant and Venser, the Sojourner on the battlefield at the same time could sorta make sense if the argument could be made that you were summoning "the actual thing" but from different timelines/different points in time/reality.... pre-spark ignition vs post spark ignition and things like that; which explains how "Gideon Tribal" could work.... because even though both Venser and Gideon are now cannonly dead... we can still summon a past versions of them.

This is why I had trouble with the changes made to the Legendary Rule allowing for me to have a Jace, the Mind Sculptor on the battlefield and then to allow for my opponent to cast his own Jace, the Mind Sculptor to the battlefield without causing mine to "blow up" .... otherwise... why cant we all have ten copies of JTMS on the battlefield?

Mother of god I am proofreading this and seeing my glaring dorkness.... I apologize.... to everyone...

well from my experience if you play elves you will win even if your not "trying" lol.... Definitly consider Reclamation Sage for B.S. prison cards like Ensnaring Bridge / Ghostly Prison ... also Nylea's Presence becomes "oops I win" with Elvish Champion .... Wrap in Vigor / Heroic Intervention can help against board wipes. +1 because elves rule!

Llanowar Reborn could work nicely.... maybe Undergrowth Champion ?

I personally liked the original Nissa Revane a lot...and I think if WOTC kept her original character there could have been some very juicy and interesting writing and lots of room for character development.

I think the card design was only really made narrow because of Nissa's Chosen and she could have had a lot more potential to stay in elf tribal by having more mana acceleration oriented abilities or even regenerate/overrun/fight combinations in future/other elf centered cards

@BigCountry64 I think I like the idea of Thing in the ice... I just worry that it would be too slow for this deck because I use Whelming Wave as a fog to stay alive most times and it would be reset if I was in a pinch... maybe if I ditched the wave in favor of more fogs it could work though?... I will playtest with it! Thank you!
