Gidgetimer on Does creature sickness prevent abilities ...

1 month ago

Summoning sickness prevents a creature from attacking or activating abilities whose cost includes the tap () or untap () symbols. It does not prevent static abilities, triggered abilities, or activating abilities that have a cost that doesn't include the tap or untap symbols. Abilities that require tapping or untapping without using the symbols are unaffected by summoning sickness, even if you tap the creature they are on to pay the cost. So Nullmage Shepherd or Heritage Druid can have their abilities activated by tapping creatures with summoning sickness, including themselves.

Thanks Ripwater.

Generally, I think of Butcher of Malakir as a Grave Pact I can recur with Meren of Clan Nel Toth, so I'm likely to keep that over Grave Pact / Dictate of Erebos.

I generally like your dredge idea, but there tend to be many graveyard exile effects in my meta, so I don't want to load it up just to watch it get nuked. I've been through that before when I had more dredge / used Altar of Dementia on myself too much. I also currently do not own a Heritage Druid, and haven't exactly sought one out for this same reason.

I did run Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip for a bit, but I found I'd usually rather cast something else than try and get her to sit around while I killed something else. I also find her planeswalker form a little lacking overall.

I definitely need to pick up a Liliana, Dreadhorde General for this deck, as sometimes draw is a little lacking. I just dislike that I can't recur her with Meren.

I tried to swap a few larger creatures in that have kill spells attached to them (thinking things like Cavalier of Night) to try and get the 2-for-1 (beater and kill). But I'm definitely going to look into some of the things you mentioned and see how they play out for me.

Thanks for the input!

K00lDudE1 I like your suggestions, and I’ve done a bit of reworking to the deck a month ago and have yet to update it on TappedOut. As far as swapping out Nettle Sentinel and Elvish Visionary , will probably keep them in with Cloudstone Curio because it has allowed me to get a ton of card draw and lock up the game for me when combined with Heritage Druid . I’ll update my deck list shortly, but because of that combo it has won me quite a few games at my LGS. But I’ll definitely give your ideas a run at the next Friday night game and see how it fares compared to my current deck.

If you want this to be competitive in modern, you have too many high cmc cards and cards that just don't do enough.

Cards like Elvish Harbinger , Elvish Visionary , Nettle Sentinel , Protean Hulk , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , Maralen of the Mornsong , Castle Garenbrig , Summoner's Pact , Doubling Season , Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, and Elvish Promenade are just not good enough for modern GB Elbe.

You also want to go up to 4 of Heritage Druid and Collected Company , as they're two of your best cards.

In general, the cards I named above just aren't fast/good enough for modern if you want to play competitively (but if you want me to explain why, feel free to ask and I'll give my reasons for that)

You'll probably want to run a set of Elves of Deep Shadow or Boreal Druid in addition to Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic s, whichever you prefer, to make your draws more consistent, I've been playing GB Elves competitively for almost a year now, and your draws with a mana dork on 1 are a LOT better than without.

Ezuri, Renegade Leader is one of the best payoffs you can play, because he's legendary, 2/3 is probably the right number, he's a payoff for your mana from Elvish Archdruid , and can regenerate your team to make combat very favourable/to (almost) blank a board wipe.

You might also want to try Once Upon a Time , it helps find land drops when you need them, allowing you to keep a low land count, and also finds payoffs pretty often when you need them.

Nice Deck, Seems pretty solid, I would just consider adding some of the following tribal cards

7H30F7 thank you for the ideas I’m going to actually switch the lands out for sure! And probably lose Harmonize and possibly Elvish Visionary for the Nettle Sentinel and Heritage Druid combo! Then I just need to figure out where to place Glimpse of Nature as a 65 Card deck already I don’t want to over fill it. I might cut out a few forests. But I definitely appreciate the feedback. This is my first deck I’ve personally built and would like to try and play at some local tournaments with it!

I would consider the classic Heritage Druid + Nettle Sentinel Combo, but I'm not sure how broken that would be w/o Glimpse of Nature . It's pretty fast and is great because Heritage Druid's ability ignores summoning sickness.

Otherwise, this seems pretty solid. I would maybe suggest lowering the Oran-Rief, the Vastwood count since it comes in tapped and you probably want it to be a bit faster than that. Also, you may want to think about switching your Woodland Cemetery for Overgrown Tomb , and adding a couple of Pendelhaven (which I'm pretty sure is legal in modern).

It may also help to add in an Ezuri, Renegade Leader or two, just so that there is another win condition in the deck.

Otherwise, it looks pretty fun and I might try it out sometime.
