I am very happy to see getting some new support in Modern Horizons! We FINALLY got full art Snow-Covered Mountain s!

So far admittedly nothing really seems like it will be any help in the Modern scene though... a simic snow treefolk is kinda neat... maybe in a Leaf-Crowned Elder treefolk tribal with all the different ways to switch toughness and power that has come about lately can be a functional use.

Is anyone else excited to see snow support/have any speculations?

I'm pretty sure that because you own both and they both trigger at the beginning of your upkeep that you choose which one goes first... the same thing would happen if you had Leaf-Crowned Elder in play.... just simply resolve one affect and then move on to the next and then move onto your draw step afterwards.... having something that allows you to play with the top card of your library revealed would make the choice a lot easier for which to do first

I never knew lorwyne/shadowmore were unpopular.... or ever thought there were problems...this makes me sad...

I always enjoy dusting off my Treefolk deck and abusing Leaf-Crowned Elder; always fun to play with....I loved the hybrid mana spells and the tribal gimmicks all went so well for EASY and fun deck building.... I use cards from these sets pretty often when I brew.

Sorry I have no suggestions to fix it cuz I loved it...

Raking Canopy against faeries is hilarious btw

Esto713 on First deck you Built

My first deck was a really terrible treefolk tribal deck back in the days of Lorwyn and Morningtide. Unfortunately, I was mostly building with second hand cards at the time and tried to make due with Traproot Kami, Doran, the Siege Tower, and (I think) Wakestone Gargoyle. Eventually I figured out what I was doing and went full on with Bosk Banneret, Dauntless Dourbark, and Leaf-Crowned Elder; although, the process took over a year.

Algaemaster on Mushrooms grow on trees, and ...

Hi all!

So this is one of my first attemps to make a deck.... And I love mushrooms and wanted to make a flavourful deck that had basically mushrooms, and their environment, trees and treefolk... To be played with friends but still as mighty s possible. But I am honestly struggling to fit everything in properly.... And no clue about which spells to choose! Any feedback is welcomed. So far I got something like this:

Lands x20 Murmuring Bosk x4 Stirring Wildwood x2 Evolving Wilds x2 Krosan Verge x2 Forest x6 Plain x2 Swamp x2


Verdeloth the Ancient Unstoppable Ash Orchard Warden Leaf-Crowned Elder Treefolk Harbinger Bosk Banneret Dountless Dourbark Timber Protector Ghoultree Indomitable Ancients Great Oak Guardian/ Cloudcrown Oak

Fungi I really wasnt sure here, not sure if mushrooms would be better represented in this deck by little ones that create saprolings and that is it, or if it is more convenient to keep the good ones in... so had those ideas so far. Also wanted to keep all as mushroomy as possible.

Mycologist x1 Essential for the theme I am aiming for, was thinking of 2 of these. Thallid Shell-Dweller x2 Benefits from using toughness to power up along with treefolk? Corpsejack Menace x3 Ghave, Guru of Spores x2 Mycoloth x2

Enchantments/Spells... The same for this, trying to keep it as mushroom foresty as possible. [pGrow from the Ashes]] is very tempting for this reason... but having other fedges.... Seed Spark ? Lignify ? Saproling Symbiosis ?? Reach of Branches ?? Rootgrapple ?? Fungal Sprouting Fungal Plots Luminiscent Rain Verdant Embrace Infect Pollenbright Wings Whirlwind Was thinking of adding something like Wrath of god or something to clean up the other's cards while having the [Timber Protector] ... Thoughts? And for more multiplayer Sheltering Ancient Heartwood Storyteller Collective Voyage ??

Well, please I would appreciate any feedback. Playing 60 cards, not much restriction... Also potenetially could make it into an EDH deck? But my pals do not really have those although we could probably get into that.

The budget is around 40 bucks...

Thanks in advance.

All the best.

i run mono green treefolk.... i vote Wickerbough Elder over Qasali Pridemage.... and some utility to consider is Descendants' Path and Elvish Piper for more cheating creatures in play....something very simply like Rampant Growth is a good (budget) way to help with color fixing as well as thinning out lands so Leaf-Crowned Elder will trigger.

just peeked in on your profile page after commenting on my Tibalt brew... after reading your description i think some cards that might interest you regarding Fauna Shaman are Bosk Banneret, Descendants' Path, Leaf-Crowned Elder and Elvish Piper...maybe Asceticism and then just insert suitable/preferred shaman fatty. Happy Brewing!
