Courser of Kruphix, Ramunap Excavator, and Knight of the Reliquary are all great cards on theme. More fetchlands are 100% better than lotus field,

Ok, so after last games, I decided to make some more changes. I want to make the deck leaner in creatures.


Mana/ramp 1. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds 2. Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy 3. Bloom Tender 4. Exploration

Others: 1. Yisan, the Wanderer Bard untapping him every turn and activating him for less 2. Faithless Looting , Frantic Search , Windfall getting the more expensive creatures in the graveyard for reanimation with Kenrith.


  1. Fertilid not enough basics to make this a good option
  2. Dack Fayden dies quickly (little flying blockers), and mostly used for his first ability
  3. Knight of the Reliquary
  4. Dryad of the Ilysian Grove
  5. Sakura-Tribe Elder
  6. Hurkyl's Recall

@DaZlInG hey hi, so for stuff like Food Chain, Elfball(Yisan, the Wanderer Bard), Najeela, the Blade-Blossom, and Tana, the Bloodsower/Tymna the Weaver blood pod;

These decks (creature combo) apart from blood pod are difficult decks for derevi to combat. This might require you to run a bit more counter magic and enchantment removal/hate to secure they can't win.


Najeela is a bit hurt since we run so much creatures, which makes it difficult for the deck to do the Infinite combat trick early on, on us anyways. Also your pod should be fairly creature heavy with Elfball and Tana/Tymna (blood pod: this still might be the weakest link securing Najeela easy wins but w/e). working together on threat assessment early on is difficult being the only blue deck while Najeela has cheap counter magic too, bear that in mind. But in all greens there should be plenty of artifact/enchantment hate going on to do stuff with from all players. minor tweaks to stop certain strategies should do the trick here!

(EX; Think: How does Foodchain win + What stops them from winning on the spot or prevents them from winning = Probably a good card) (or in this case Swords to Plowshares najeela , Beast Within her etc...)


Foodchain is just dealt with by counters,tax or locked out of searching to deep, but elf-ball is one of the harder types to beat due to the fact they run under Stax effects pretty well... much like yisan, which can be a real challenge. I've lost plenty of games to Elfball/yisan/selvala type stuff,

But the simple thing about this is not allowing them to search Aven Mindcensor or early Linvala, Keeper of Silence type of effects really shut them down so try looking at these and try to stay away from things like Dream Tides for now. (Also threat assessment and early removal of commanders like these from the group is essential for not letting it get out of hand like leaving a Yisan open and letting him do whatever is a mistake; these decks don't do much without their commander)

@HumbelBumbel Hey hi, ; So basically yes it could work in any sort of meta, just tweak it towards your liking and towards your playgroups level of play. You can add all sorts of wonky combo stuff and cut out the taxing effects and locks for a battle-cruiser style of play and aim for long/late game! Thanks for the like as well!!! (If like you say your playgroup has agreed on not using orb effects for example you can just swap them out to more fun stuff!) Just check out the Sideboard deck or other versions from different sources and mix/match to your liking + see what works for you and what doesn't!

@0rc Hey hi, So what kind of deck is this really? it's not really glass cannon as in combo decks with no backup plan, neither is it the end all be all late game deck. It's more of a deck with layers and a game-plan in which others can't do what they want to be doing. Stax can go the late game for sure and take the game to a state where it is just frozen but by this time most folks scoop, and it can pop of early game as well and create wins out of thin air with unexpected hard locks. But all this is mostly planned way ahead of time as this deck tries to look a few turns ahead of what it wants to do and what could happen.

@Smooth8675309 hey hi, Thanks a lot xD enjoy the discord lots of great people,help,feedback,etc over there as well!!

@Dark_Danda Hey hi, So Knight of the Reliquary isn't really useful in this deck as opposed to its uses in modern and what not. There are way better land tutors out there if you need them like Crop Rotation and such if you require these type of effects.

What are your thoughts on Knight of the Reliquary? Have you ever tried it out and if yes, what was the conclusion?

I really love it when people brew/port over decks from other formats so +1 for that alone.

My thoughts about the decklist would be pretty radical/different... I think I would go and drop black...maybe Hardened Scales over Corpsejack Menace and using Path to Exile/Oblivion Ring for removal as well as flicker/blink spells like Cloudshift/Ephemerate..... maybe Knight of the Reliquary somewhere?

I was wondering if you had tried other color combinations for this idea and if you had, was the mono green the most consistent.

I had some suggestions for thought. Sakura-Tribe Scout to play the lands you search for twice as fast. Bounce lands?

Knight of the Reliquary probably to expensive and losing the lands might hurt too much. It could open up other colors or utility lands like Bojuka Bog.

Your thoughts.

After some thought I'm going to throw in some of Tata's recommendations immediately. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Knight of the Reliquary are out. Fleetfoot Panther and Woodland Bellower are in.

No, you won't be able to do that without getting some other cards involved.

If you cast Armageddon and respond by activating Knight of the Reliquary, the Knight's ability will resolve first. Armageddon will then destroy the land you put onto the battlefield along with everything else.

You can get what you want by adding Vedalken Orrery or something similar that will allow you to activate the Knight and then respond with Armageddon (normally you can't do this because Armageddon is a sorcery). In that case, Armageddon will resolve first and then the Knight's ability will resolve and put a land onto the battlefield.
