Cloudthresher Discussion

Cloudthresher and Walker of the Grove can be evoked for less than 6, just like AEthersnipe .

Green has a few cards with Convoke, which could be cast early.

Strionic Resonator or anything that doubles a trigger like Cascade would be good but not sure about your budget limits

EvilG on The End is just the middle

Have you thought about putting Cloudthresher in? Perhaps instead of Avalanche Riders

3> Ahhh I've been wanting to play with Obosh, the Preypiercer and Angrath's Marauders - glad you found a spot for them. While you're at it, you could also consider other "damage doublers" such as Wound Reflection and Fiendish Duo. I've thought about a Vial-Smasher deck with a White partner just to add Gisela, Blade of Goldnight.

3> I see you enjoy big monsters and X-spells here. Oh to be young again... but seriously, this seems like a good deck to play them in as you would be rewarded. Instants are your friend, as you can Smash Vials on everyone's turn! No Comet Storm?

3> I would be worried about Vial-Smasher getting nuked from orbit as soon as your turn passes and it's no longer indestructible. You'll find Heroic Intervention and Slippery Bogbonder will help with targeted Exile removal. You already have Destroy and Sacrifice covered I see.

3> I see some cost-reduced and commander-free spells in there, but you have a limited suite. While doing research for my thoughts on Vial-Smasher, I found the following might be helpful - list is just copy/paste, so it will include some White and/or Blue cards:

I've always been looking for a deck to put Cloudthresher in and this looks like it

FlavorPolice on Selvala Brostorm

I have a few questions about high power Selvala builds that haven't really seen discussion at all, even as to why they are bad (I preface all of this with stating that obviously the deck is strong/fast, I'm just wondering why I never saw any of these things discussed):

Sword of the Paruns: clearly a similar but worse version of Umbral Mantle in more than one way, but a possible redundancy for a card that the deck can't search up and has to draw.

More than a few of the win cons for the deck require winning via combat damage even if it is infinite, which generally from what I've seen in cEDH games isn't as good as winning without combat due to the extra vectors of interaction you give your opponents to stop you. Having your combo finish being impossible to interact with as possible always seems to be beneficial, it's what makes the strongest combos what they are. Obviously there is one particular loop possible where you destroy all your opponents permanents, but if you don't do that and swing with haste or pass to the next turn with infinite creatures you could still have issues. Also, Beast Within isn't searchable by the deck.

So I have a couple of cards to ask about for that.

Helix Pinnacle: Clearly it requires you to wait until your next upkeep which isn't great. But if I were going to sit for a turn before winning, with my opponents having permanents or not, I would expect getting a 'you win' effect off an enchantment with Shroud would be superior to needing to swing. The only thing that I'm really curious about is the lack of any talk about it even to say it's bad most places I looked.

Aetherflux Reservoir: You're basically storming off so just kill people without attacking? Not searchable though clearly.

'Hurricane' effects, there are a few so I won't link them all. The downside is they hit you too, but in this style of deck it's not to hard to gain some incidental life. Primal Command already does this, tweaks could be made to have better consistency. The upside is you only need to have more life than your opponents and it doesn't require you have reached infinite mana yet, just that you have accumulated a lot. I only bring this up because in the past I had played a 60 card deck in casual that was essentially a sort of 'green high tide' deck that also made lots of mana and drew lots of cards and it wasn't super hard to gain a touch of life along the way and then Hurricane the table down as the win; that deck did so through land ramp mostly, so a critical card in that deck like Fruition doesn't really suit this deck and would be more at home in a Tatyova or Azusa for sure, but Primal Command is already present in some lists and does the job. It is worth noting that there are several creatures, which the deck could actually tutor, that can do this either through looping or just having a repeatable ability:

Cloudthresher, Ifh-Biff Efreet, Squallmonger

just recently bought this deck, it's so much fun to play. Have you considered adding Cloudthresher? I added it to mine and it seems pretty effective.
