Karametra's Acolyte Discussion
23 hours ago
You control Kogla, the Titan Ape, Karametra's Acolyte and Hyrax Tower Scout and at least one more devotion to green. You tap Acolyte for six green mana. You pay 1G and bounce Scout for Kogla's activated ability. You recast Scout and untap Acolyte. You're at the starting point, but have one green mana floating. Rinse and repeat.

Gotta love this. I'll try to get a Kogla for my Goreclaw deck. A card you should try is Hyrax Tower Scout. With Kogla and Karametra's Acolyte, it produces infinite mana. Also, how about adding Temur Sabertooth so you can then proceed to bounce Kogla any amount of times to kill as many creatures as you want.

Guess I should of given more recommendations; so you're right the mantle is dead without priest. However, there are a few cards that offer a bit of redundancy making it much more worthwhile.
Marwyn, the Nurturer *with 4+ power
Viridian Joiner *after 1 activation
Bloom Tender *this one is still way out of budget but definitely works
Additionally, if you end up adding more of an elf package Leyline of Abundance is some epic tech that I've greatly enjoyed.
I was unaware that Dramatic Scepter had gone up that much it use to be like 5 dollars; I saw the 710-780 price tag on the deck and thought that it would be fine; but if it's not within the limitations that's understandable.
So, without the scepter the ceiling for Dramatic Reversal becomes much lower; now that there's no inevitable combo. However, I wouldn't say its actively bad. Decks like selvala and urza use cards like this in a pinch as a ritual; (not saying this is optimal but it's an applocation) though netting a positive requires you to already be relatively established on board but getting off a few extra tasigur activations in a turn could warrant some play testing at least.
Typically, Seasons Past is played in conjunction with cards like Wilderness Reclamation and Seedborn Muse to be able to interact on the following turns after recurring all the value. they're relatively budget right now and can definitely help in grinder games.
Lastly, Freed from the Reel is kinda a popular way to net infinite mana in pauper edh with Arbor Elf and Wild Growth on an island. Though almost any land enchantment could be used too for redundancy like Utopia Sprawl.

On Thin Ice doesn't work for this deck, as it requires a snow-land to enchant, and your deck doesn't run any (and they will increase the cost quite a bit). If you don't have a Coat of Arms already, I would drop it for other things. It's a nice card, but will benefit other tribal strategies and is pretty expensive overall - Door of Destinies might be a better option. Sigarda, Heron's Grace is not actually in your list, so you'll need to drop a card and put her in. Make sure to type * CMDR * (no spaces) after the card name to show her as the commander. I would look for some ways to push damage through, like adding some equipment that gives trample Ring of Kalonia or Loxodon Warhammer come to mind. Skyblinder Staff makes any of your flying creatures blockable only by creatures with Reach, which is a pretty powerful effect, with a flying commander. Champion of Lambholt can quickly give you an army of unblockable creatures. Dictate of Heliod is another option for an anthem. I think Elder Cathar may be an underperformer here and better replaced with another creature. Maybe Juniper Order Ranger, Abzan Falconer, Aegis of the Gods, Baird, Steward of Argive, Goldnight Commander, Karametra's Acolyte, Krosan Restorer, Tuskguard Captain, Wild Beastmaster or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. Good luck, and let me know if there are any specific questions you have.

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.

Certainly! As I understand it, there are two main lines for combo in the deck:
Infinite Mana is a standard one for green -- Karametra's Acolyte/Priest of Titania/Wirewood Channeler + Wirewood Symbiote/Temur Sabertooth/Quirion Ranger (QR not so much, as you have to bounce a land). You can also use this combo with Temur Sabertooth to bounce and recast useful creatures like RecSage and Visionary for profit.
The main combo, however, is Mirror Entity + Wirewood Symbiote while Selvala is on the field -- You make all of your creatures elves with the ME ability, bounce symbiote to it's own ability, untapping Selvala so you can use her ability again, hopefully getting 2-3 mana in the process in order to recast the symbiote and repeart the cycle until you deck people out.
Sword of the Paruns and Umbral Mantle also help with tapping and untapping as needed, which is easy with a big mana dork out and infinite mana. Uba Mask interacts with the draw effect on Selvala so your opponents don't get their cards to their hand and potentially lose them when the turn changes. The rest of the deck aids in twiddling or searching for combo pieces.
