griffstick on What are the best cards ...

1 week ago

For ramp I really like the Medallions like Jet Medallion. I'm also big fan of mana doublers . And Cabal Coffers and Serra's Sanctum and Gaea's Cradle. These cards are fun.

Card draw. I like Rhystic Study. I really doesnt get better than that. But enough of that card. I think Rishkar's Expertise is really good. 6 mana draw tons of cards then get a 5 mana rebate.

Lands. I guess you could refer to my ramp category.

My favorite wincons are Genesis Wave, Triumph of the Hordes, Akroma's Memorial, Exsanguinate, and Torment of Hailfire

Spot removal and interaction. Imp's Mischief is awesome for mono black. I actually find Withering Boon really good. Black is really good at creature removal but what if that creature has a really good etb effect. That's where Withering Boon comes in.

Board wipes: Fumigate, Void, Bane of Progress, Sunblast Angel and Nevinyrral's Disk are some of my favorites

Also fun fact if you have everything on the field except for Non-colored permanents and Instants and sorceries or Concordant Crossroads as you can only have on world enchantment on the field at a time I think, and I choose Hall of Gemstone as it has twice the devotion to green as Crossroads, your deck could produce around 1,456 mana (give or take some for any card i may have missed) (48 of colorless and 1,408 green mana) for your X spells Finale of Devastation, Green Sun's Zenith and Genesis Wave which is would be fun to pull off.

I see your trying to protect yourself with Avacyn, Angel of Hope and friends. :) From one player of a Trostani deck to another Eerie Interlude for a response to a field wipe, Life gain from the ETB's are the icing on the cake.

I would also second a Serra Avatar addition, she can be copied with Helm of the Host and Mirrorpool.

Not sure Primal Surge is a good fit here, its usually used with 3 or less other instants/sorceries in the deck. i would recommend to swap it out for a Genesis Wave instead.

Another card that comes to mind would be Cream of the Crop, a silly little thing that will allow much better card filtering. it's not good with 1/1's but anything else you make will be cycling through your deck

If I play Genesis Wave with X is 10 and my Opponent copy this Spell, does he get the same 10 times X?

Monitor on Marwyn Elf Ball

Hey, saw your post on reddit and couldn't help but check it out. I love me some elfball, so here's what I've got for you. Everything is of course my opinion and to be taken with ample helpings of salt. Hope it helps!

Lands: Mosswort Bridge is a trap, though I haven't tried it in elves yet. Reliquary Tower is a trap, when you fire off in an elfball deck you can usually cast what you draw. I'm okay with your tapped cycling lands bc they cycle, so that's fine, and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood is sneaky good. It's the only tapland I tend to run. Your best land by far is Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and the best way to get it is Crop Rotation. When you already have it, you'll want to use it for an instant-speed Wasteland/Strip Mine or Wirewood Lodge. I don't usually run Ancient Tomb in elves but there's nothing saying you can't, and it helps when you have plenty of things with generic costs, as you do, along with some lifegain.

Potential Cuts and Swaps: Harmonize out, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip in: Harmonize is a classic, but Growing Rites never disappoints. Even if it whiffs, you probably have a gaea's cradle at end of turn.

Overwhelming Stampede out, Finale of Devastation in: You already have the Ibex, and the Finale is far more versatile than the Stampede can ever be. Can grab all sorts of things instead of being a single pump and dump. Considering it could double Marwyn's mana output for a turn could earn its keep, though.

Wrap in Vigor out, Heroic Intervention in: Strict upgrade, figured I'd mention it.

Wellwisher out, Essence Warden in: Incidental lifegain, if you want to use it, might be more reliable than being able to tap the Wellwisher for its effect reliably. Also, the Warden triggers on all creatures, including opponents.

Reliquary Tower out, Thousand-Year Elixir in: This is pretty sweet and you need fewer lands than you think you do.

Desert of the Indomitable out, Veil of Summer in: This card is just too good. Also, 33 lands is too many (I know, but you'd be surprised!) and this one ETB taps AND cycles for 2 mana instead of 1, so I'd cut it.

Llanowar Tribe out, Wirewood Channeler in: I've never liked the tribe, it always seems clunky, and in your list specifically it is competing with Marwyn at the 3CMC slot.

Doubling Season out, Asceticism in: I'm not sold on Doubling Season here, honestly, as Hardened Scales could serve the same purpose in most cases regarding the way this deck puts +1/+1 counters on things one at a time (mostly). If you REALLY want to lean in on the token doubling from Lys Alana Huntmaster, Elvish Promenade, and Imperious Perfect then it might could stay.

Genesis Wave out, Kindred Summons in: This counts tokens...it is ridiculous and casting it when you only have 3 or 4 elves out still feels great, whereas if you flip Praetor's Counsel with a nasty Genesis Wave you're a sad panda.

Dwynen's Elite needs a home here, its 2 mana for 2 counters on Marwyn, among other benefits. Not sure on what to pull out, but I've never been a big fan of Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen herself, really. You don't want to stack too deep on lord effects when its so easy to tutor them out or draw them for an explosive growth instead.

The last thing I will note, is that any non-Elf REALLY needs to earn its keep. Each and every elf in your list makes it stronger, be it with more mana, more tokens, more counters, all of those things.

The reddit thread has some great recommendations on cards to check out as well, so you've got a lot to sift through. Good base though!

Rhys Up is my current GB list, there might be some ideas for you in the main and maybe boards. The deck is mostly green but plays my favorite black stuff, and most of the cost difference between these two lists lies in the manabase.
