I had a commander deck in toploaders once...Jund Birthing Pod .

Shuffling was an interesting experience.

This question is slightly off-topic, but why is it that Birthing Pod and Prime Speaker Vannifar can use their abilities only at any time that a sorcery could be cast? Did WotC decide that those abilities would be too powerful if they could be used at any time that an instant could be cast?

plakjekaas: no offense, but he said "even better", but then in all the examples you mention, the new card is worse. Prime Speaker Vannifar is a worse Birthing Pod , Gilded Goose is a worse Birds of Paradise . instead imagine a better birthing pod or birds.

Grubbernaut "A better question is: with artifacts already so incredibly strong, why would they ever consider offering them something that does the thing they already do best (fast mana) even better? What does the game stand to gain?"

Well that's easy to answer, lots of cards are printed whose only function is: "hey, remember this broken old card that was really good in other formats in the past? Wanna play with it again?" Like Prime Speaker Vannifar is referring to Birthing Pod , Gilded Goose being a warped Birds of Paradise , Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip as Gaea's Cradle , every Magus of the XXX ever, etc.

Nostalgia sells packs.

Great deck idea and execution in mono G, +1

Some cards to consider here, although I'm not even sure the deck needs them:

Pendelhaven : since your deck is running 1/1's, one of those would go a long way here - but I understand you want to maximize Forest count for Utopia Sprawl targets, so it remains optional

Mutavault : Counts as Eldrazi Spawn through the backdoor, but again you also need Forests and Geier Reach Sanitarium wants to filter your cards as well, so optional as well.

A Simic version of this deck could run Neoform and increase consistency - but staying mono G has its own value of course.

We also recently got Pyre of Heroes as a 'fixed' Birthing Pod

Anyway, that being said I DO like the deck just the way it is rightn now.

I must immediately purchase some eggs for I need to have breakfast and without the eggs I cannot have the breakfast that I so require - Mojo Jojo

I tried to theory craft Atla Palani, Nest Tender once, but like Mojo I found that I needed two-for-one eggs. I added a secondary shapeshifter chain, Birthing Pod , Natural Order and the like. I got the two-for-one eggs I was looking for, but every breakfast thereafter tasted exactly the same.


For a nutritious eggs primer fun is the minimum requirement. Upvote for not stopping one shy of the fun that you need.

For you, and forever, Azi
