Thanks, capwner! It is such a really fun combo, and adds such a layer of depth for the deck. It's just been a Collected Company deck for years, putting as many mini combos inside of it that worked.

It's funny that you mention Fury, because that was one of the pivotal cards that made me have to update and modernize the deck. It focused the deck on just the two card, most efficient combos, but still had to hope for the right drops against the right deck.

Agatha's Soul Cauldron was the final piece of the puzzle. It finally allows the deck to play through hate and interruption, and it adds so much more cohesion to the deck. My version of the deck adds in the Kitchen Finks/Viscera Seer combo, and the Devoted Druid/Vizier of Remedies combo, instead of focusing on the lifegain theme of other Heliod, Sun-Crowned decks. The addition of Glittering Wish makes it so much more consistent as a combo deck as well.

This new version of the deck I'm playing with has Sanctum Prelate as a backup almost playset to help the deck keep moving. Still messing with the numbers of each card, and seeing what I like.

Planning on writing a brand new deck description soon. But thanks for the kind words, and I definitely suggest playtesting it a bit yourself, the deck has been so much fun! :D

Necramus on Gonna Need A (Myrkul)

Soulus101 Hey there! Thanks for dropping a comment. So, I actually have Devoted Druid in there (I think you must've just overlooked it! No worries!!), and for Sythis, I have 8 enchantment creatures, as well as the 15 enchantments. So, with almost a quarter of the deck being castable enchants, it should be fine! I generally consider cards to be synergistic if they interact with 15+ other cards in the deck! I had considered one of the other enchantresses, but most are still cast and don't net the life that Sythis, Harvest's Hand does, and they're typically more expensive (monetarily, and cmc-wise). I appreciate this feedback, though. I definitely hadn't even considered the interaction with manifesting.

Enjoyed my Myrkul deck, yours looks like a higher-powered version though, nice!

Not sure about Sythis in this deck as you only have 15 castable enchantments, but I guess that's not too bad. Devoted Druid is infinite green mana once it becomes an enchantment. A pet card for me in this deck is Thieving Amalgam; when the cards you manifest from your opponents die, you can get an enchantment copy of them with Myrkul (regardless of what they were on the front side).

It was a fun mono green deck that also ran Devoted Druid and Quillspike for an infinitely big vanilla creature with no evasion. Cream of the Crop was my card selection. I honestly can't remember what all was in the deck but it was a lot of fun.

msimcoe First of all i'd like to thank you for the detailed comment . For the mana base : i was thinking from the start about the fetch+shock lands modern Staples but i tried to avoid them because of the Life loss: with all the dorks that let me add mana while losing Life i thought It was a bit risky to try the Classic fetch + shock and i find the mana fix in this deck to be quite easily manageable . I tried Woodland Cemetery too but i found that sometimes It came tapped early in the game . [Fury] and dork removal Is the reason im playing target discard , to enable the dorks plays discarding their removal spells. But you're definitely right about the pure discard being Better later in the game , especially with Nath of the Gilt-Leaf. I've imagined this list to be a slower Elf ramp: "defending" the early plays by controlling the opponent hand i think its crucial for the strategy. But still , to find the perfect balance between the early targeted discard and the generic discard its something do be done here. I'll definitely try funeral charm by removing 2 target discard cards. I find Devoted Druid to be quite a nice addiction here because It has good sinergies with Tyvar the Bellicose and the +1 Tyvar Kell : to turn the mana dorks into Little beaters throught those cards was one of the approach i took while Building the deck. Do you think that this strategy Is lackluster ( keep in mind the slower-controllish way of this build) ? Harmonize feels good when It hits but you're right , im looking for some other draw engine to keep the flow going and i Will try Beast Whisperer for sure. What do you think about Harald Unites the Elves ? Maybe its Just me loving this card but i think It deserves a Place somewhere ahah.

PS. This Go Blank Will definitely find a Place in the sideboard . Yes , your input has been very helpful.

So to flesh out the mana base, in essence I would recommend: - increasing the number of dual lands over basic lands and the quality of the dual lands, i.e. Verdant Catacombs, Woodland Cemetery and Nurturing Peatland. (Having perfect fixing often is the difference between winning and losing.) - and just bumping up the number of lands to something like 21, I know it would feel weird in a deck with so many mana dorks, but in the outlandish event you face a deck playing Fury or Fire / Ice, I think you'll be happy to have land-drop number four over mana dork number four.

Secondly, since you fancy playing Devoted Druid in the main deck, maybe you could take advantage of her combo potential or at least her synergies with cards like Tyvar, Jubilant Brawler especially in place of Tyvar Kell who I don't seeing being a very impactful four-drop. Or alternatively, you could just cut a few mana-dorks for a playset of Waste Nots who would help get you some advantage off of the opponent's discard. And while on the topic, I would suggest playing more just strict "target opponent discards a card" like Funeral Charm over the hand-hate like Inquisition of Kozilek and Dread Fugue since a.) you don't really care about hating on the opponents pieces as much as just making them discard, b.) instant speed discard is always better than sorcery speed and c.) it scales better into the late game.

As well, side note, Harmonize over Beast Whisperer just seems a little too low-impact for the modern format, sure it's a guaranteed one-for-three, but at four-mana it doesn't touch the board and beast whisperer is probably a better investment with all your small creatures that ramp you into more small creatures ramp imo.

Lastly, you asked for some sideboard suggestions, I might play one or two Crippling Fear as one-sided board wipes. As well, pioneer sideboard all-star Go Blank might be good in this shell with some more main-deck discard synergies. Also, just general good green and black sideboard cards are like Veil of Summer, Force of Vigor and Fatal Push

Thats all that I have for how I might build this list, and I hope this was even mildly helpful! Overall, this is an interesting list! A solid idea that I find very similar to The Rack strategies in modern!

This a really interesting deck with a really well written and understandable primer. Nice job.

Im not sure what really to recommend.

Pentavus could be a good redundancy option as it can go infinite with Cathars' Crusade if you can tap the new creatures for mana, also maybe something like Impact Tremors to combine with your infinite Scurry Oak

My last idea would be Devoted Druid as this could add infinite mana to some of your infinite token combos, you could tap it response to a token entering to float mana, then put a negative counter on it to untap it before the Cathars' Crusade trigger resolves, then hey presto, the new +1 counter will remove the -1 counter used to untap it? I think that would work anyway.

Hope these suggestions are somewhat useful:)

If you put a Devoted Druid in you have an infinite combo with Quillspike.
