Assuming Leaf-Crowned Elder and Rootgrapple share a creature type, yes. They should, considering they are both printed as Treefolk, but some effects can change that, such as Conspiracy which only effects creatures, not tribal cards.

Simply put: does Leaf-Crowned Elder's Kinship ability work on Rootgrapple?

GenoSans- Path is definitely the better card, but this deck is meant more for casual play. Crib Swap has the added benefit of being able to be cast for free with Leaf-Crowned Elder, which this deck is kind of built around. If you wanted to take this to an FNM I'd add paths for sure, but this is more of what I'd call an optimized-kitchen-table deck. Thanks for looking though!

I have also change Cream of the Crop for Into the Wilds as I dont really need extra scry. Also, it's replacing well Leaf-Crowned Elder hability with more potential target (37 land vs less than 10 treefolk + shaman).

Basicly I have removed the slower Planeswalker, those with high mana cost and/or high ultimate and no very usefull +1. The reason is that I just can't never use it. Thats means no more Garruk, Caller of Beasts , and Nissa, Who Shakes the World . I have replace them with Horn of Greed and Early Harvest to get more momentum on card draw and mana ramp.

I also have switch Rishkar's Expertise in favor of Shamanic Revelation because I get stuck with Rishkar's Expertise too much time waiting for the a good time to cast that never came. Also, this deck almost never loose a game in my meta. Thats means that im the primary target before the game start. Since that, I need more way to gain life. It also combo well with another modification. Game are almost alway's win with Craterhoof Behemoth and this card is better with a lot of token than fiew big fat creature. This is why I had reintegrate Beacon of Creation and add Lys Alana Huntmaster . Lys benefit from the more elf of the last update (like Eladamri, Lord of Leaves ). I had cut in the treefolk branch to make those addon, swiping out Seedguide Ash who is very slow and Leaf-Crowned Elder who lack of target to be really efficient.

Other modification are Constant Mists for a better protection. Wirewood Hivemaster for more tokens. Genesis Wave to replace some Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and other planewalkers habilities to fetch card from the top of library. Mwonvuli Acid-Moss Who can be use as bad ramp or to get rid of Maze of Ith or other "screw my day" land and Desert Twister as this the only one true removal in green (that I know).

To make room for the last 4 cards I don't remember witch other card than Tireless Tracker I have removed.

The goal was to get more synergy from land and creature type and also get more tokens as they are the main key to victory. By playing more and more this deck it's become obvious that the draw rate was never an issue with Nissa as commander, This is why I have cut in the more slow planewalker that do that kind of stuff in favor of more quickness and momentum.

This looks pretty interesting. I'd consider leaning into an entirely colourless package with tron lands, and use Fist of Suns , but the bringers deserve to see the light. There are a lot of 'cheat big stuff' shells out there. Being reanimator is likely the strongest option, and I might try the dice archetype's mana package, to just make a ton of mana. Far from the most fun.

Pentad Prism is used to power out ad-nausiem, and artifact ramp cards offer options.

The unique thing about the big changeling is that he can abuse tribal cards. So go tinker with that.

Icbrgr on Snow-covered Modern

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?
