Llanowar Dead Discussion

Skull Prophet would diversify your mana base slightly more than Llanowar Dead. It would help you play a Ripjaw Raptor if you only had one green land.

Sporeweb Weaver is interesting, too. It works well with Rite of Passage. Even without it, you can make a single chump blocker every turn. Reach is a nice bonus.

Magic_Faqs on Golgari Elves

This deck isn't modern legal due to Llanowar Dead and Wellwisher. Also, what is the strategy of the deck? Savra, Queen of the Golgari works in a sacrifice deck, but you only have 2 cards that actually sacrifice creatures.

multimedia, I could replace two copies of Deathrite Shaman with Llanowar Dead, but I still like the shaman, since its other abilities are very useful, and there is also the mana curve of my deck to consider, since replacing the shaman with the dead will increase the mana curve of this deck.

Cutting Leyline of Vitality is a good choice. 28 lands is a lot of lands. This amount is what a control deck would use and those decks have card draw and filtering. This is a midrange deck, 25 lands seems good enough especially if you play mana dorks and keep the mana curve lower.

Play Deathrite and Llanowar Dead? This gives you more chances to ramp into turn three Liege. 4x Llanowar and 3-4x Deathrite are numbers to consider playtesting. Llanowar seems better here than Deathrite because Llanowar is consistent ramp where as Deathrite isn't. You want to build around the idea of getting lands into your graveyard to use Deathrite as ramp. Unfortunately, not taking enough advantage of self-mill or Fetch lands for Deathrite to be a consistent ramp source. Adding 4x Grisly Salvage and 4x Evolving Wilds or another Fetch land would help.

shadow63, multimedia, Gift of the Deity is too good to remove from this deck (it is especially awesome with Glissa, the Traitor, but I shall instead remove two copies of Vulturous Zombie, since that card has the same converted mana cost.

Llanowar Dead is a very awesome card, and I would have put it in this deck, except that Deathrite Shaman is more versatile than it for a lower mana cost.

I also have removed Leyline of Vitality, since its effect is not sufficiently great to make a major difference in this deck, which, along with removing two lands, brings this deck to 60 cards.

I agree, Gift of the Deity doesn't seem very good for a five drop and risky to enchant since none of your creatures have hexproof. Cutting down 4 ofs into 2 ofs is not what you want to be doing in a deck that doesn't have tutors or card draw. You want the consistency of 4 ofs without draw. Lots of 2 ofs is not helping consistency.

Creakwood Liege is the best causal part of your deck. Consider building more around the Liege? Some good interactions are Worm Harvest with Life from the Loam to fuel Harvest both ways and Elemental Bond for ridiculous card draw. With Liege, 1/1 black/green Worms ETB as 3/3 creatures which triggers Bond. The same is true of any other black/green creature such as another copy of Liege or even Deathrite Shaman.

Grisly Salvage can help to find Liege or a land as well as fuel for the graveyard. Llanowar Dead is a 4/4 mana dork with Liege. Nice to have ramp for Liege that also has interaction with it. Putrid Leech is a 4/4 with Liege and can be a 6/6 attacking two drop. With tokens and graveyard strategies Dread Return is good reanimation for Liege.

And of course, Goblin Bombardment :D

DemonDragonJ on Will there Ever Be a …

Llanowar Elves is one of the most iconic cards in this game, so it naturally has produced numerous variants, some of which are also mono-green and others of which are multicolored.

Among those creatures, Steward of Valeron is a green/white variant, Zhur-Taa Druid and Radha, Heir to Keld are red/green variants, and both Llanowar Dead and Deathrite Shaman are black/green variants, but there has not yet been a blue/green variant of it, so I do hope that WotC eventually prints such a card.

What does everyone else say about this? Will there eventually be a blue/green variant of Llanowar Elves ?
