shrap666 on Elvish Onslaught Deck

I hear what you're saying. My deck is split in it's purpose, and it's weaker for it. I've kinda maintained that this split between going to power via numbers, or by power spells, made the deck less predictable and more versatile. It doesn't.

This deck was originally meant to be all about numbers, and I guess that got distorted through the years (I made the original version about 5 years ago). Gonna re-examine everything, and make some cuts/additions.

Frontier Guide will definitely be going away, as will Elvish Piper. I will likely put in (at least) one of the removals you recommended. Going to be some big changes... Should be done by tomorrow. As always, thank you for taking the time to give me a hand with this :)

Thanks man; much appreciated. Perhaps I'm missing something...aside from the name of the card (obviously), what's the difference between Skyshroud Claim and Ranger's Path? Is there a benefit to making that swap? I'll fiddle around with running 3x Allosaurus Rider, but I'm reluctant to. The deck works best if he's in your opening hand, so you can cast him on turn 1. Taking one out reduces the chances of that happening, and Elvish Piper I see as more of a contingency than being the default way that you should cast the rider. In fact, I would gladly exile a piper as one of the two cards to get rider out in turn 1. Thanks for the feedback. I'll try some tests with the changes you suggested.

Boza, upon further consideration, there are two aspects of your design that I dislike: first, if the spell is countered, the player shall have lost great amounts of mana; second, the creature cannot be cheated onto the battlefield with an effect such as Elvish Piper, Quicksilver Amulet, and so forth.

Therefore, I have decided to use the same formatting as Rise of the Hobgoblins, which I feel is a format that WotC should use more often in this game, as seen, below.

With this formatting, the player will not lose mana if the spell is countered, and they can also summon the swarm in ways beyond hardcasting it, so now what does everyone think of it?

I like Kaalia a lot, but she's not in here right now for a few reasons. She's well known for being pretty powerful, so she paints a target on my face as soon as she's on the board; that is if I'm not already being shot out of the sky.

Also, I honestly just haven't taken a lot of time to think about her in here. I've toyed with other similar options such as Quicksilver Amulet and Elvish Piper, but I took them out in favor of other things. Thanks for the suggestion though, I'll keep her in mind.

Cheers, trnx14. I might consider Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip. I found some Thoughtseizes to sell, so that gives me a little extra budget to splash on some value cards. Though also considering Berserk and Craterhoof Behemoth. I'll playtest the deck in this version first though to see what will actually be worth the price tag.

I don't think I need Elvish Piper as i'm not stacking my deck with big CMCs. Plus the objective is to cast Ghalta above all else. Leafkin Druid might be ok, I'll see how i go playtesting first though. Might swap it in for one of the mana elves. As for Karametra's Acolyte, I'm not sure, it's CMC:Power ratio is pretty low. I think i want early ramp, and cheap, high power creatures to throw Ghalta out as fast as possible. We'll see how things go in playtesting.

Also, Elvish Piper, Leafkin Druid, and Karametra's Acolyte seem like they'd be great here too.

I see no Elvish Piper or Quicksilver Amulet

thats my suggestion.

Also if you ever wanna open the doors to a non-budget deck (while the world budget is very subjective in magic the gathering some cards wont be terribly high in cost some are) here are some other cards that would be amazing for mono green devotion. Elvish Piper - Nyxbloom Ancient - Worldspine Wurm - Genesis Wave - Primalcrux - Khalni Hydra - Craterhoof Behemoth
