king-saproling on Lathril

2 weeks ago

Looks great so far. Personally I would make these swaps:

  • Voice of the Woods -> Pitiless Plunderer ; while not an elf, I think the Plunderer is more impactful here, especially since you'd probably rather tap your elves for mana or toward Lathril's ability than toward making an elemental, right?

  • Llanowar Tribe -> Fallen Ideal ; Fallen Ideal allows Lathril to make exponentially more elves every time she hits. The extra evasion is nice too. I think the mana boost from llanowar tribe is unnecessary here especially since it won't get Lathril out any faster.

  • Abomination of Llanowar -> Ancestral Mask ; similar to Fallen Ideal, and i think it'd be more impactful than the Abomination.

  • End-Raze Forerunners -> Ivy Lane Denizen ; ok hear me out: the turn that Forerunners drops relative to the turn Lathril was played, you will have made 8 elves with Lathril, so Forerunners gives you an extra 25 damage that turn (7+(2*9)). Ivy lane Denizen, on the other hand, will have increased your damage output by 32 in that timeframe AND will also leave you with 24 more elves and a 32/32 Lathril. Oh and you will have killed 1 opp via commander damage. And the Denizen is not a dirty eyeblight :P

  • Springbloom Druid -> Paradise Druid ; Paradise gets Lathril out a turn faster, Springbloom doesn't.

  • Elvish Rejuvenator -> Priest of Titania ; same as above. Also PoT is busted.

  • Bounty of Skemfar -> Heart Warden ; similar to above.

  • Farhaven Elf -> Quirion Elves ; similar to above.

  • Wolverine Riders -> Immaculate Magistrate ; Magistrate will allow you to deal more damage and generate more elves in the long-run v.s. the Riders.

  • Casualties of War -> Storm the Citadel

  • In Search of Greatness -> Awakening ; I think the Search is a bit lackluster since its effect is that the free-casted card must be equal to 1 + highest-cmc, so it's kinda hard to play around. Meanwhile Awakening would win you the game if uninterrupted.

  • Skemfar Avenger -> Skullclamp ; Skemfar only triggers on nontoken dudes dying which is kinda a bummer. Skullclamp is nice because it draws you cards but could also go on Lathril for extra damage/elves.

  • Pyre of Heroes -> Shamanic Revelation

  • Poison the Cup -> Attrition

  • Rhys the Exiled -> Throne of the God-Pharaoh ; I think the Throne is more impactful than Rhys

+1 my dude! @your reddit post,

More lands imo. Also more big ramp... seems like Vorinclex is a big target for removal, so ramping up to 15+ mana a turn seems like the way to go.

I think the biggest problem is that you're splitting themes and trying to jam infect. A lot of seemingly powerful cards don't have synergy with the rest of the deck. Only ~12 cards directly create +1/+1 counters. So (eg.) Hardened Scales really does nothing.

...Cut incidental Infect:

-1Viridian Corrupter, -1Spinebiter

-1Phyrexian Swarmlord... I love this card but, even when you're all in on infect it isn't that good...

(I think the other infect cards with 5+ power as soft, 2-card combos with your commmander are viable).

...Cut fatties with no evasion:

-1Renata, Called to the Hunt... if you're interested in playing "go-wide + pump" this could be good, but not better than Bloodspore Thrinax

-1Rampaging Baloths... incidental 4/4s aren't worthwhile

-1Crowned Ceratok... +1Champion of Lambholt

-1Ulvenwald Hydra... no synergy

-1Primordial Hydra... +1Managorger Hydra

When choosing cards ask yourself: (1) Does it work with my commander? (2) Does it work with my theme? (3) Is it strong enough with no synergy to play 1v3? (eg. Rampant Growth, Sylvan Library, etc.)

Happy brewing!

Hey, thanks for the suggestions SirQuixano! I totally missed that Ivy Lane Denizen puts the counter on any target creature, not just the creature that entered the battlefield, with Aerie Ouphes it'd be a wincon in its own right!

I did test with Bramble Elemental a while back, but noticed there weren't really enough Auras in the deck to get much value out of it. I'll give it another try with the new Auras and see how it works out.

Spider Umbra and Snake Umbra are great suggestions- can't believe I didn't think of putting them in!

Hey Bobs_Army & Elasar99 (great name btw!), thanks a lot for your input! I really appreciate it.

As for The Great Henge, The Ozolith, Heroic Intervention, Hardened Scales, Doubling Season, Branching Evolution and so many other spicey - yet pricey - cards, please keep the description of the deck in mind. This deck is going to be a budget build to be an entry in a Secret Santa type thing. My playgroups' gentleman's agreement is ~30,00€/$40.00 maximum - plus cards that sit in our binders which we don't mind giving away.

Also, the deck's supposed to be played in a low powered pod, which we would score 3-4/10 by our metrics. The easiest way to do that is have most cards either fit the counters theme or one of the subthemes such as fighting instead of being generically good. Meaning, cards like Inspiring Call and Sporeback Troll fit a lot better than Heroic Intervention, Wrap in Vigor, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots and the likes.

I still have Tuskguard Captain and Bramblewood Paragon in a box somewhere. I might add them as extras. For the moment i think Champion of Lambholt, Gnarlid Colony and Pridemalkin should be plenty to enable hits.

I'm quite sure Longshot Squad is one of those boxes, too. It'll have to be an extra for now, since i won't know if the deck's even facing flyers until all Secret Santas are revealed. Nice catch though!

Hydra's Growth and Increasing Savagery have been on my mind as well, yet they fit Mowu, Loyal Companion so much better than the other interchangable commanders. Going wide and wild with counters is a lot more entertaining than just going big. Same goes for Managorger Hydra. Sure it's straight forward, but something like Forgotten Ancient can enable a variety of things - at half the price.

As for Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig, there are only so few creatures that would trigger his second ability reliably at the moment: Bloodspore Thrinax, Renata, Called to the Hunt, Verdurous Gearhulk and Vigor. If i would be looking for creatures that do something similar to his first ability i'd propably consider Ivy Lane Denizen for its flexibility instead.

Anyhow, thanks again for your kind words and suggestions!

ps. MapPsycho thanks for your flattering words as well! :)
