H-E-N-R-Y on Punching in Pillow Fights

Thanks for such constructive feedback Orange+!

Yeah trying to balance 32 lands in a budget is kind of a pain so I really just settled for anything that would average out my base enough to get consistent starting hands. The idea is that I don't have many 1 drops so I just use up the tapped on the first turn, but with that in mind it definitely has been hampering my flow later in the game. I actually might check that out the more I'm thinking about it...

Yeah, I can see what you mean with Crystal Chimes being slow. So far it's played pretty clutch but switching it out for Brilliant Restoration is just an all around win when I can get around to it, a very good suggestion!

You've given me plenty to think about, and though it might take me a second to consider, I definitely appreciate the ideas!

Hi, H-E-N-R-Y

Cool deck you've got going here :)

I have made a Sythis deck myself, but to be honest, Im not completely into what people usually play with Sythis. I could however provide some initial thoughts I have based on your decklist.

First of I would recommend that you structure your deck with categories. I know a lot of people on tappedout doesnt use them, but they are very useful when building decks or providing feedback.

You play a lot of lands that enter the battlefield tapped, but as a two color deck containing green, Im not sure if you need to. Some of them might be handy, like Path of Ancestry and Temple of Plenty which gives scry. But I dont think you need the rest, and could swap them out with lands that dont enter tapped (like just basics). The lands are: Arctic Treeline, Blossoming Sands, Graypelt Refuge, Path of Ancestry, Scattered Groves, Selesnya Guildgate, Selesnya Sanctuary, Temple of Plenty, Thriving Grove, Vivid Grove, and Vivid Meadow

I've tried to play Crystal Chimes myself, and didnt like it that much. If I were you, I would probably take out both the chimes and the Cloud Key. They seem slow. Cards like the chimes and Resurgent Belief are very telegraphed, meaning your opponents will know what you can do before you do them, this is often quite a disadvantage.

Otherwise I think your composition is pretty nice with lots of good cards. But it might get better if you cut some of the larger mana cost cards. If you get to draw a lot from your commander, you might as well play a lot of cards. And if that is the case, mana is what is holding you back. I think cards like Celestial Mantle, Eldrazi Conscription, Epic Proportions, Gigantiform, Indrik Umbra, Martyr's Bond, and Prodigious Growth are a bit too mana expensive. (However, if you treat some of these as wincon, you should keep those)

As I mentioned, Im not quite sure what is common to play with Sythis, but as you have many spells with mana cost 3 or less, you could try Sun Titan. Otherwise, enchantment recursion is really nice in these kinds of decks (against bordwipes and such). Cards like Replenish, Retether, and Brilliant Restoration.

Finally, as mentioned by others commenters, I think removal is really important. I think Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are natural fits, but if you want play more enchatments, you could also try Journey to Nowhere, Borrowed Time, or Oblivion Ring. My deck Riders on the Storm has a removal category if you want to take another look.

Could get more value with another clone: Mirrormade. Not sure if you want to go the mill route, but Sage of Mysteries could be useful. Crystal Chimes or Skull of Orm gives you a bit of recursion.

Greetings MapPsycho I've worked on this deck tonight. I'm unsure about keeping the Elephant Grass + Scuttlemutt combination of abilities to protect me from an attacker designated as black. It is fairly situational and those two slots take away from the land gain, large creature theme.

These are the cards I have added thus far:

Dryad Greenseeker Bonders' Enclave Nylea's Intervention Ulvenwald Tracker Thaumatic Compass  Flip Evolution Charm Nissa's Triumph Lay of the Land Primal Might and Spore Frog

The cards I removed tentatively are: Buried Ruin, Blighted Woodland, Consign to Dust, Scattershot Archer, Crystal Chimes and Crashing Drawbridge. this last card I was reluctant to take out -- granting haste is such a fun surprise and option with big monsters entering the battlefield. Regardless, The cards I still am curious to add are: Yavimaya Elder, Traverse the Ulvenwald and Ram Through but I am uncertain what to remove. Should perhaps the above mentioned combo depart from the picture?

Thanks in advance if you have any time to evaluate.

Crystal Chimes

Daxos the Returned could offer a source of blockers at least.

Oh, and maybe a copy of Crystal Chimes in case of an enchantment board wipe?

It's a good utility piece and trigger's Alela.
