Just removed Golgari Charm for Beledros Witherbloom

I do like Carnifex Demon in Hapatra and I use to run it but this deck only needs two 1/1 creatures to combo off and i believe there's cheaper way to do so but it's in my sideboard card for sure! Maybe with Beledros in, it can be a power engine, would need to test it! Thanks for the comment!

Hey Walrighti, +1!

@your post

Congrats on your first deck! You have a lot of fun cards in here and it looks great! I imagine you want to tune and make it even more efficient so here are some ideas...

Add 3 categories: #Combo, #Lifegain, and #Evasion; and then sort your maybeboard the same way you've done your mainboard to easily rank your choices within a category (By "combo" I mean all your "if-then" cards like Trudge Garden that are slower and don't work by themselves). Remove #Creatures (most of them are #Combo).

Avoid most cards above 4 cmc... Willowdusk is fast and fragile, so play into that... Also, prioritize cards that can do 2 or more things or that give value on ETB... If you have pet cards that don't really fit and that hurt to cut, put them in a "I'll build that theme later" list.

(All under $3)

+1 Devoted Druid ... this card is a beast

+1 Rampant Growth

+1 Arcane Signet

+1 Golgari Signet

+1 Talisman of Resilience ... #Ramp

+1 Elves of Deep Shadow

+1 Elvish Mystic

+1 Fyndhorn Elves

+1 Llanowar Elves ... #Ramp... the elves enable Willowdusk combos on turn 3.

+1 Marwyn, the Nurturer

+1 Viridian Joiner ... #Ramp... #Combo

+1 Boompile ... its a gem (hint: don't tap it on your turn) +1 Nightmare Unmaking

+1 Killing Wave

+1 Massacre Girl ... #Wipe

+1 Kenrith's Transformation

+1 Beast Within ... #Removal

+1 Swiftfoot Boots

+1 Inspiring Call

+1 Oblivion's Hunger

+1 Rush of Vitality

+1 Sheltering Word

~1 Slippery Bogbonder

+1 Golgari Charm ... #Evasion

+1 Haunted Cloak

+1 Chariot of Victory

+1 Charge Through

~1 Tuskguard Captain

~1 Rancor ... Trample and haste are important... #Evasion

~1 Destined ... the choices are really good.

+1 Deepwood Ghoul

+1 Mischievous Poltergeist

+1 Soul Channeling ... #Combo with Willowbark and stick to the board...

~1 Phyrexian Processor ... fun?

~1 Lurking Evil ... maybe?

~1 Solidarity of Heroes ... #Combo

~1 Ooze Flux ... tokens at instant speed?

~1 Retribution of the Ancients ... removal?

+1 Garruk, Primal Hunter

+1 Mindless Automaton

+1 Thought Gorger ... (leaves)

+1 Life's Legacy

+1 Return of the Wildspeaker ... #Draw

~1 Essence Harvest

+1 Bloodspore Thrinax

+1 Triskelion ... #Combo

+1 Nighthawk Scavenger ... #Fatty

...Always play at least 10 ramp spells under 3 cmc.

...Playtest and make sure Willowbark consistently makes a fatty (with evasion) before turn 6-7.

Here's another Willowdusk thread.

Happy building :)

Hey, well done with your upgrade of the Lathril precon.

Some changes to consider by close to matching price of card to add with card to cut:

Good luck with your deck.

FounderX OMG you just made my day with the "Pricy but spicy" comment. I am totally using that going forward. =)

Glad to see you have already looked at some of those recommendations. I play in a competive meta so in my version of Lathril, Elfball! copy, I needed to add more instant speed targeted removal so I added Assassin's Trophy , Golgari Charm , Nature's Claim , and Beast Within , which you are already running. I found this really helped and saved my butt several times when your opponent has death on board. I have to admit Golgari Charm has been a really strong upgrade mainly for the regenerate ability, but the other two modes are still really strong. I was able to decimate a Krenko, Mob Boss deck thanks to the -1/-1 mode.

Two other cards that have worked extremely well in my deck has been Cover of Darkness and Genesis Wave . Most games Cover of Darkness will make all your creatures unblockable to one or more players which can quickly end games.

For Genesis Wave we are already making silly amounts of mana with our mana dorks so most games I am casting Genesis Wave for 15+ which means 5 to 8 elves along with a hand full of lands/enchantments/artifacts. The only problem I have with Genesis Wave is the deck's lack of haste because, as soon as I cast it I instantly become the prime target for all the other players. However, if I manage to untap with all the perments that Genesis Wave puts in play I typically win the following turn. High risk / high reward right?

A few cards I have thought about trying are, Green Sun's Zenith , Concordant Crossroads , Song of the Dryads , Fauna Shaman , and Seeker of Skybreak . Fun fact, if you give Song of the Dryads to your opponent and have Elvish Champion out all of your elves become unblockable to that player. What are your thoughts on these cards?

Thanks

BiggRedd54 Wow, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed will be a really good addition! Thanks, I've been mainly sticking to insects except for a few that just sync really well with the deck and I think this card really falls into that category. I think I'll definitely keep the other two in my side board at least since I already have Cultivate and Golgari Charm is pretty cheap. I definitely need to work on the mana ramp and I think I might replace some of those rocks with low cost creatures in to help get me started in the early part of the game.

It’s dope. It’s quirky tribal, which is the best kind. I have one awesome suggestion, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed . Oh also Golgari Charm offers great value. Perhaps Butcher of Malakir ?

I would also set a priority to improve the mana ramp. Your spells are lacking in ramp so Cultivate + Skyshroud Claim , maybe even Harvest Season ? Also the cheaper your rocks the more effective they will be for your gameplan.

As for protecting your creatures from (most likely) board wipes... I would recommend Heroic Intervention and Golgari Charm as cheap protection for your board.

Caran_Lyg For Modern, $200 really is budget. That's at the low end of Burn, which is typically the cheapest deck intended to be at least semi-competitive in any major format. Most decks are in the $500-600 range, and some can push above $1,000. This ain't cheap for competitive events...

But to comment on the deck itself, Nileek What are your thoughts on Golgari Charm ? It offers cheap mass regeneration as a combat trick or anti-boardwipe, most of your creatures can survive the -1/-1, and removal options are always nice.
