Argothian Elder Discussion

I really like the concept, and the tapdown for an extra turn is a really good mechanic to balance it. It also works as amazing synergy in Simic with cards such as Kiora's Follower and Argothian Elder .

I'd definitely run it. :)

Replace Greenweaver Druid with Argothian Elder . It's better mana and can create inf. mana with Wirewood Lodge .

TolarianScientist you could try Ley Weaver , it's a copy of Argothian Elder if you ignore the "partner with" mechanic

Hey so a couple of key cards I think you should add are: Finale of Devastation Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip Argothian Elder Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Veil of Summer

Those are some pretty budget friendly cards you may want to think about adding! As to what to cut exactly its completely up to you but if you are open to suggestions my recommendations are: Nissa, Farhaven Elf, And a couple of forests. Since you are playing a lot of mana dorks its definitely okay to cut down to maybe 32 lands. Especially if you are running cards like crop rotate to get better lands.

So going into the "Keyword" filter tab option, you have 7 cards that are pulled up under "Tap/Untap". Of these, there are only several who can actually untap Selvala:

I have a combo I know of, but it will require you to run a few different and very expensive cards.

With Argothian Elder out, you can untap two lands. You want to untap any of the three lands listed + Wirewood Lodge . This will generate an infinite amount of mana as you can then use Lodge to untap Argothian Elder and repeat the process.

This does not help you out with untapping your General, but it does help you produce the mana to cast everything if you can set a draw engine online. Since you have infinite mana at your disposal, artifacts such as with Beast Whisperer , Primordial Sage and Vanquisher's Banner .

That's a good choice. I forgot about it.

There is also Argothian Elder that I recently discovered, as well. :)

I don't think Marwyn gets the credit she deserves. What's also nice is that the deck has multiple different ways to keep going without Marwyn. A couple suggestions:

Argothian Elder : combos with Wirewood Lodge and big mana producing lands (I.e. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun , or a land with Elvish Guidance and 1 other elf)

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip: aka baby Gaea's Cradle . See above.

Elvish Guidance : see above. Also works well with Arbor Elf if used on a Forest .

Dwynen's Elite : cheap multiple elves to pump Marwyn quickly. Not needed but is pure value for 2 CMC. You get two 1/1 elves and Marwyn gets two +1/+1 counters. Also works well for bouncing back to your hand.

Craterhoof Behemoth / Finale of Devastation : aggro finishers

With infinite Mana:

Squall Line : another Hurricane but at instant speed.

Assault Formation : seems like a very odd inclusion. However, with the infinite or near infinite amounts of mana produced it becomes an insane pump spell for all our elves.

Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip: draws out all your creatures.

Temur Sabertooth : lets you reuse any ETB effects you may have. Combos with Wirewood Symbiote see below:

Temur Sabertooth + Wirewood Symbiote + 1 Big Mana Tap Elf + 1 Random Elf to Bounce:

  1. Tap the Big Mana Tap Elf for big mana.
  2. Use Symbiote to untap the Big Mana Tap Elf and bounce the Random Elf.
  3. Tap the Big Mana Tap Elf for big mana again.
  4. Use Temur to bounce the Symbiote to your hand.
  5. Recast the Random Elf and the Symbiote then rinse and repeat.

If you want any more ideas you can look at my deck here: Nature AND Nurture with Marwyn

@ Boomcat12B thank you so much! It's great reading all those suggestions. It's great going through your deck too!

Just to be sure, is this how the little combo works: When the Thespian's Stage becomes a copy of the Dark Depths one of them will go to the graveyard because they'll both be Legendary, right? And when it's gone to the graveyard it's counters will be removed.

@ ive-been-degaussed I'm not a lot into infinite combo's but this one I don't really understand. If I attack with my Argothian Elder and use the Maze of Ith to untap it. Than I can use tap the Elder to untap the Maze of Ith + one other land. But as my declare attacker step is already gone I cannot repeat doing this, can I?

Thanks both for your comments!!
