Llanowar Visionary

Creature — Elf Druid

When Llanowar Visionary enters the battlefield, draw a card.

Thank you, both Basshunter & SufferFromEDHD

I may use Gaea's Touch, I think I have one if I search through green box.

I have a love/hate relationship with level-up cards. I love the idea, hate it when I actually play them, so I'm not so sure I'll use Joraga Treespeaker. I have her in my Elfball deck, but it's so mana hungry I rarely get past the first level. In this deck, Llanowar Visionary has a place with the early card draw along with ramp, and Devoted Druid is here for even faster mana ramp that doesn't require additional mana pumped into her to get an extra early green mana. I can also drop a +1 counter on her to reset, and I don't care if she dies because she's coming back (or will eventually come back). Joraga just wants too much from me when I want to cast other things early in the game. YMMV

Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth is indeed good. When I get one, I'll probably add it in, maybe in place of Mosswort Bridge.

Mana Web is brutal, indeed. I'd probably only use it if I wanted to play with a more competitive pod or in a tournament. It's great, but maybe a bit hardcore to play with friends. Although I do have a buddy that loves his $12 counter spell deck that this would be great against, lol. It's situational, for me, based on power level or deck types I expect to play against.

Hidden Path and Nature's Cloak could both be great, and almost feel like cheating in a deck like this, lol. If I find that I can't get my creatures through reliably, I might just do this. However, one of the beauties of this deck is that you almost WANT to get blocked a lot of the time. If I'm attacking with a boatload of lands, and my commander is out, I want my opponent to block so I can kill of his smaller creatures. I want him to make decisions. And I don't care if my Forests die, as they're coming right back to the table ... Untapped and ready to block for me (to which they can die again, come back, and by my turn have lost summoning sickness and I'm ready to read & repeat). By having Forestwalk, I get more damage in, sure ... but I lose my pseudo Vigilance that's built in with the recursion that makes this deck fun. So, for now, I keep the Forestwalk out. That said, I'm more likely to want a sorcery/instant for Forestwalk for a surprise win condition, such as Nature's Cloak.

Scarwood Bandits is always fun. However, it doesn't have much synergy with the deck and I would prefer the deck to stay more focused. Lots of fun cards in green to toss in for flavor, though, and this would be great if I went on a little tangent.

Hi, really enjoyed this one - like the idea!

you could think about:

Gaea's Touch - strong in every mono green deck and perfectly fits in a forest tribal

Joraga Treespeaker - imo better than Llanowar Visionary or Devoted Druid

If you're looking to speed the deck up, I'd consider adding: Elves of Deep Shadow, Birds of Paradise, Wild Growth, Utopia Sprawl, Boreal Druid, Elvish Pioneer and the all-mighty Deathrite Shaman. For those, I'd look at cutting: Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth, Elfhame Druid, Farhaven Elf, Jaspera Sentinel, Llanowar Visionary, and Springbloom Druid. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is an amazing card, just not sure if it belongs here, maybe replace it with Elvish Guidance. There's also always Heritage Druid,

And hey, if you've got a Gaea's Cradle, Crop Rotation is a must (and its slower cousin, Sylvan Scrying, which also makes Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx a good add. More ($$$$) lands to consider would be: Cavern of Souls and Yavimaya Hollow. Other utility lands you might want to check out would be: Emergence Zone, Nurturing Peatland, Castle Garenbrig, and Wirewood Lodge.

If you've got the funds and are looking to get those last few % points in your ramp package, take a look at: Carpet of Flowers and Jeweled Lotus.

For card advantage, yeah I agree that Glimpse of Nature and Oakhame Adversary are good options, along with Sylvan Library, Necropotence, and Dark Confidant if you've got the $$ and looking to get as close to 100% as possible. Regal Force is a non-elf that's essential in elf decks. Some other options would be: Pact of the Serpent and Elvish Visionary. In terms of tutors, definitely consider: Chord of Calling, Eldritch Evolution, and maybe even Woodland Bellower and Fauna Shaman. Decks closer to CEDH would probably include: Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent, and Survival of the Fittest. Also, Eternal Witness might be too good to not include, along with Noxious Revival. Patriarch's Bidding is a cheaper Haunting Voyage.

Card advantage cards you could consider cutting would be: Twinblade Assassins and Silhana Wayfinder.

In terms of removal, I think you'd want: Assassin's Trophy, Abrupt Decay, Nature's Claim and/or Force of Vigor, and Deadly Rollick. I also like Golgari Charm in more casual metas.

For elf synergy, along with Elvish Champion, I'd take a look at: Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Immaculate Magistrate

For utility, consider: Autumn's Veil, Veil of Summer, Vitalize, and the non-elves Scryb Ranger and Temur Sabertooth. Concordant Crossroads seems really good with Lathril too.

Hope this helps! Happy brewing

Made some changes. - Coiling Oracle since it costs 2 color mana, and we dont have much lands to abuse his landdrop ability.

  • Destiny Spinner since Rhythm of the wild included now, and also we have Veil of Summer and Cavern.

  • Elvish Visionary for Llanowar Visionary.

  • Lotus Cobra for Tireless Provisioner, because elf and treasures are better in most cases.

  • Slithermuse, because depends on opponents hand a lot.

  • Soul of the Harvest, since we have a lot of those effects anyway (i concider Vizier and Augur as those effects also).

  • Stratus Dancer, because it is a 2 mana counterspell just for sorcery or instant. It is good, but free counters are better.

  • Wall of Roots, because 2 mana dork, giving only 1 mana per turn, and it is not even an elf.

  • Hardened Scales, because we dont have much creatures requiring tons of counters (In fact, it is two eldrazi and ballista. Everything else works well without this card), and it is better to have some card which does something useful instead.

  • Exotic Orchard, because sometimes will not give us correct color.

  • Flooded Grove, because filters can be bad sometimes.

  • 2x Island, cause we needed 2 more slots.

Now i wanna check how good is Rhythm of the Wild and return Destiny Spinner if it is not. And also find a slot for Ramunap Excavator, since we have 9 fetchlands and Lotus Field

DemonDragonJ on Innistrad: Midnight Hunt and Crimson …

So many new cards have been revealed in a single day, there is no way that I can comment on all of them!

First, I am very disappointed that the only reference, thus far, to Emrakul’s invasion is the flavor text of Unruly Mob; are we, the audience, seriously supposed to believe that a reality-warping eldritch abomination had no long-term effects upon the plane? Perhaps the lights in the sky that numerous cards depict are remnants of Emrakul’s power?

Why is it necessary to now have a card that indicates day and night? What was wrong with the previous method of operation? Actually, I supposed that it allows for interesting effects beyond werewolves transforming, so that is not too bad, in my mind.

On that subject, why are the inhabitants of Innistrad afraid of longer nights and shorter days? Does that plane not have changing seasons?

I am always excited to have a new cycle of dual lands, but why did WotC choose to start a new cycle, rather than finish an existing cycle? This would have been a perfect opportunity to complete the cycle of “battle lands” (i.e., Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade, etc.), and, on the subject of those lands, these new lands are almost reprints of them, but they instead count all lands, not merely basic lands, in exchange for not having basic land types, so it is nearly an even trade, in my mind.

Tovolar finally has a card, and it seems that he shall be a great general for werewolf EDH decks, which many players have been desiring. I do also like that Arlinn has three different versions, but I hope that at least one legendary creature gets a full-art card, so that planeswalkers do not monopolize that frame style, in this set.

I wish that the new Sigarda was not so human-centric, but her second incarnation focused on humans, so it should not be a surprise that her third incarnation is, as well.

Brutal cathar can be abused with an effect that transforms it, as it can exile a new creature for each time that it transforms, which is definitely awesome.

I do like Avacyn’s Memorial, as a reference to Akroma's Memorial, but the first memorial was a colorless artifact that cost 1 mana less than the angel whom it honored, whereas this memorial has the exact same mana cost as its matron, which I feel is far too strict, as well as the fact that it affects only legendary permanents, so I highly doubt that I shall use it, unless I am desperate.

Candletrap is a very interesting card, and I like how it can incapacitate a creature initially and then dispose of it, later. Unfortunately, I suspect that this card shall become popular in EDH as a way to immobilize a general while making it very difficult for the controller of the creature to liberate it.

I like the visions cycle, but those cards are nothing spectacular, so I shall likely use those cards in my decks only if I cannot find better alternatives.

I am very surprised that it took as long as it did to make a card named "defenestrate," but I certainly like it; it is overshadowed by Infernal Grasp from the same set, but it certainly is far superior to is Walk the Plank.

Finally, curse of obsession gives a reference to Edgar Allen Poe on Innistrad (specifically, the Tell-Tale Heart)! I suppose that Nevermore could be considered as such a reference, but the lack of a raven in the artwork ruined that opportunity.

Dawnheart rejuvenator is nice, but I would rather have Llanowar Visionary for 1 less mana, as that creatures draws a card when it enters the battlefield.

I notice that this set has angels and evils, but no demons, thus far, so I do hope that it has some of those, soon.

Hey, you're welcome.

You could cut Drove of Elves for Sabertooth and cut Expel from Orazca for Staff. Some other upgrades to consider are tutors to get the more impactful Elves quicker.

Some tutors could replace some of the less impactful draw spells and ramp such as Bounty of Skemfar , Chart a Course , Harmonize , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Llanowar Visionary .
