Creeping Renaissance Discussion

Profet93 on High Risk, Higher Reward (Needs Help!)

Heroic Intervention - Protection

Yavimaya Hollow - Expensive form of protection that fits in your landbase

Song of the Dryads/Kenrith's Transformation - Commander/general removal

Return of the Wildspeaker/Rishkar's Expertise/Momentous Fall/Life's Legacy/Garruk, Primal Hunter/Soul's Majesty - All good card draw to use on your commander.

Regal Force/Shamanic Revelation - All good card draw given how wide you go

Nissa, Vital Force - Next turn she ults which is DEVASTATINGLY powerful. add more lands, I know you have a relatively low(ish) avg CMC with lots of elves, but being mana screwed suchs. I would AT LEAST go to 32, preferably 34 and thats on the low end. Although it is personal preference on how you like the deck to run

There are many other better green voltron or green elf commanders. If you wish your deck to be this way, thats fine, just understand it isn't effecient. Your biggest issue is boardwipes and recovering from them as overextending can wreck you. Maybe Creeping Renaissance?

I got lots of ideas for cuts so lmk.

Just saying that Creeping Renaissance does not strictly put the angels back to the battlefield...just to hand which is a big difference. I still like the card though. Oath of druids is great when your deck is a majority bangers, accelerates games & can give control players fits, particularly because removing the spell doesn't feel as good on the expenditure.

You'd have the angels back in your hand with Creeping Renaissance. I am a big Oath of Druids fan

Yeah. You have some heavy hitting mid game creatures that makes you a target. I'm not criticizing.. I do similar in some builds.

To recover from a wipe I'd seriously consider Creeping Renaissance. You have enough Angels to make it worth it. Imagine someone wipes and next turn you have 3 or 4 angels back on board? Insane.

You can also slot in an Eternal Witness and get back something nice after a wipe that way.

Quirion Ranger will let you get forests already played back into hand to chuck. Untapping a creature is gravy. Dryad of the Ilysian Grove will let you play out your heavy land count faster as well as allow the Ranger to bounce land as they will all count as forests. Both Undiscovered Paradise and Ghost Town can return themselves to hand. Nylea's Intervention puts the lands to hand plus can double as Hurricane if needed. Creeping Renaissance can name land and restock [twice!] all at once to help burn people out.

I put together a similar sort of deck the other day. Here are a few of my differences:

Creatures

Enchantments

Sorceries

Lands

Ok, Profet93, here we go on some card evaluation.

Bag of Holding : I've had this card actually do good work for me. Having the mana up to activate it usually isn't a problem, and it's easy to dump a bunch of lands in a turn, get the back, and dump them again. It's fun, and I like it, so I'll probably be keeping it. That, and getting as many effects to return chunks of discarded lands to my hand is good for this deck.

Grafted Exoskeleton : I could live without it. I thought that it would help provide another quick win condition towards the end of a game, but I think a better fit would be something like Illusionist's Bracers , which would double up the activations.

Horizon Spellbomb : Most likely was put in there as a low-budget option in the original list, and could probably be upgraded. It's low CMC, gets ammo into the hand, and can draw a card to replace itself. But it's easy to live without.

Wayfarer's Bauble : Budget ramp. Could be a Sol Ring , or something else. Open to suggestions, but it's good budget ramp.

Summer Bloom : This one stays. Running this many lands, it doesn't whiff.

Rites of Spring : Open to suggestions.

Mulch : It's ok. I usually hit at least 2 lands with it, but I admit I could replace it.

Beneath the Sands : Gets one land, or draws a card, so it's never dead. But it could be better. Open to suggestions.

I do have some thoughts on adding some more draw/ramp, but I'm staying budget here, so no Exploration , Burgeoning , Oracles or that other stupid expensive elf. I'm thinking along the lines of Mina and Denn, Wildborn , Font of Mythos , Llanowar Scout , Sakura-Tribe Scout , and things like this. I do believe I will splurge for a copy of Life from the Loam .

As for card draw spells, I want to shy away from sacrificing BoBo to get the effect, since his CMC is so high to start with. Return of the Wildspeaker will be good, but more is needed. May have to get another copy of Rishkar's Expertise , and also Keen Sense . I plan on adding Creeping Renaissance , too.

These are my thoughts so far, and I'm open to other suggestions, too. Thanks for all the help!

pokey, those are good points, and worth considering, but I don't know how much I'll net land cards through his damage trigger. Wheel effects might be worth considering, though, so thank you for those suggestions!
