Life and Limb


All Forests and all Saprolings are 1/1 green Saproling creatures and Forest lands in addition to their other types. (They're affected by summoning sickness.)

It's not really limiting your opponents' mana along the way, but Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth with Life and Limb and Plague Engineer is game winning lock.

Kamerot Word man, that's awesome. The myriad stories of how we all become players, the bonds we make, the commanders we fall in love with--it's poetic almost. My first commander was Krenko, Mob Boss and I still operate and maintain him--turbo fun--makes all the bodies you want. I tried Kamahl once as an Animation deck. Turns out it's pretty difficult to justify turning all your lands into creatures that can die, even with mass land recursion spells such as Splendid Reclamation, Gaea's Will, etc. lol. I really like the Living Lands, Life and Limb, and Nature's Revolt cards but even Yedora just makes it oops combo.

CamraMaan on Interaction between Yedora, Grave Gardener, …

In short, when Yedora, Grave Gardener turns a dead creature into a Forest, and Life and Limb makes it into a creature, will tapping that Forest creature for mana produce an extra green mana from Leyline of Abundance? My assumption is that it effectively exists as a creature with the ability to tap and add one green, like a Llanowar Elves (but a saproling), and should therefore trigger the Leyline. But I just want to make sure. Thanks in advance!

There are a lot of cards I ordered on TCGplayer a month or more ago that haven’t arrived yet. Scryb Ranger is one of them. And I have a Nantuko Vigilante lost in the mail somewhere to synergize with Yedora and those rangers. I also have a Japanese Timber Protector that I want to run because with the second iteration of this deck, I plan to have a few cards to turn all my forests into creatures, like Life and Limb, Living Lands, and Thelonite Druid. And yes, if someone exiles all my creatures, there goes my board state, but that’s why I bought a Natural Affinity. It’s a mean reaction spell if they want to exile my land creatures.

And I have a Mycoloth for a potential combo of saccing all the forest creatures while Yedora is out, which will then let me bring them back as forests.

I’ve had really good success with the deck so far. All the trample and cards that let me pump my creatures due to how many forests I control, Finale of Devastation, Nissa, Ascended Animist and Conduit of Worlds letting me cast them multiple times, it’s all very fun.

Oh I forgot. I’d been thinking of running stuff like Cankerbloom as well because having a creature that can kill artifacts and enchantments is better than instant spells sometimes due to the commander interaction.

Most of the cards you mentioned I haven’t heard, I’ll definitely check them out.

I haven’t considered a sac outlet, even though I see how it is useful. I guess I’d rather leave the creatures as blockers and let them die from another source.

Life and Limb does make your lands turn into saprolings but once destroyed they’re just lands and you can’t use them as a resource for Fungal Plots. Just think about it. Where are you getting the saprolings from? They leave the game all together. What about creatures in your graveyard that you can use as a resource to use with Fungal Plots? All your cards need to be in the board and not in your graveyard to execute your strategy. Only way you’ll be able to use fungal’s ability is if you have something to send your creatures to the graveyard or a board wipe that your opponent uses.

Pinkfluffyant - Thanks for the including that this is a casual deck as that changes the recommendations. The main thing that jumps out to me is why are you running 3xPit Fight and 2xTitanic Brawl? This deck thrives on token production and the vast majority of creatures/tokens are just 1/1 so having them fight another creature likely will not remove a creature from your opponent's board. You do have a few creatures with greater combat stats but with only 4 of those in the deck, the odd are not in your favor. Condemn, Path to Exile, and similar cards would likely serve this role better.

The other thing that pops out is that you lack card draw. Fungal Plots might be an interesting take as you are running Life and Limb so you can sacrifice saprolings/forests for extra draws and could easily replace some creatures with other cards that also produce saprolings for some "decent" draw potential.

Necrosis24 on Land creature deck?

I'm assuming you are centering the deck around Gilt-Leaf Archdruid

If you are going mono green:

Ashaya, Soul of the Wild with mana dorks is pretty great with landfall triggers such as Lotus Cobra, Avenger of Zendikar

Kodama of the East Tree + Kamahl, Heart of Krosa with plenty of card draw and landfall token generation Kodama will help you ramp out lands quite quickly and Kamahl will provide the wincon through combat damage assuming you animate your lands.

Yedora, Grave Gardener is a good choice for a morph landfall deck with a sac outlet like Altar of Dementia and utility morphs like Ainok Survivalist can be quite fun. Though this doesn't quite fit with the Archdruid. But on the alternative she goes infinite with Life and Limb/Living Lands. Life and limb also works well with Sporemound. If anything you can use Maskwood Nexus to make Gilt-Leaf Archdruid work which also makes some other landfalls get more powerful with Life and Limb in play.

Otherwise you can go elf/druid tribal and use commanders like Marwyn, the Nurturer.

Some other mass Land animation spells: Sylvan Awakening, Rude Awakening, Ambush Commander.

Eldrazi13 on Would this be an illegal …

1 year ago

I remembered reading that unless you could end a combo it was illegal, so to clarify if I had both Sporemound and Life and Limb on the battlefield, since landfall isn't a "You May" effect, would their interaction be illegal. Since a Saproling token would be treated as a Forest by Life triggering landfall indefinitely. If I am wrong about this interaction, I would love to be told.
