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?

Here's what I recommend to cut:

Aegis of the Heavens: only buffs one creature.

Rootgrapple: 5 mana is a lot for this kind of removal and you have better removal.

Diabolic Tutor: Unless you digging for a specific combo, should be able to cut.

Garruk, Primal Hunter: Doesn't really fit the theme. If he had a great ult/emblem then maybe keep him since with walls you can defend PWs better.

Fruit of the First Tree: Too situational. Also, it would hurt to get hit by Path of Exile with this

Oblivion Ring: There are better options that are also cheap in Orzhov colors. You also have a good bit of removal. Better to have something be permanent.

Spirit Shackle: Fun and Janky but not much else.

Tawnos's Wand: You have Behind the Scenes, if you want more switch a utility land with Rogue's Passage.

Fireshrieker: Good card. Doesn't fit theme.

Cathar's Shield: Equip is too expensive. You're better off with a global enchantment that grants vigilance.

Nyx-Fleece Ram: One life per turn isn't the best rate.

Grizzled Leotau Not the easiest to cast and too vanilla.

Warmonger's Chariot: You have quite a few effects that already let your defenders attack but this only allows 1 to attack. Also, you don't have a ton of defenders.

Not quite 30, but that's what I believe to be easy-ish cuts.

@sea monkey The trinisphere, vivien and ballista serve a really specific role in making this deck tick, and they are what makes the deck expensive.

For a more budget list, I'd look at Beast Within , Rootgrapple , Dungrove Elder / Heartwood Storyteller , with Reach of Branches , so that you have creatures consistantly beefy enough to slow the ground game, then sideboard aggressively against burn/aggro with Pulse of Murasa .

Eternal witness/Primal Command /plow under is really, really strong together, so I wouldn't look at replacing that.

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

Treefolk

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.

sylvannos on Are Treefolk viable in Modern?

One of my buddies built Mono-Green Treefolk and it's a great metagame call.

A lot of your creatures dodge the format's removal, except Path to Exile. They're too big to hit with cards like Pyroclasm. You get a lot of value from the Treefolk you do play.

Just from memory (so I'm not sure if this is the exact list), he plays something like:

4x Cavern of Souls
4x Blighted Woodland
16x Forest
---------------------------------------------------
24 Lands

4x Bosk Banneret
4x Dauntless Dourbark
4x Dungrove Elder
4x Leaf-Crowned Elder
4x Seedguide Ash
4x Timber Protector
4x Treefolk Harbinger
---------------------------------------------------
28 Creatures

4x Lignify
4x Rootgrapple
---------------------------------------------------
8 Other Spells

Sideboard:
2x Beast Within
1x Choke
2x Creeping Corrosion
3x Nature's Claim
3x Relic of Progenitus
2x Scavenging Ooze
1x Thragtusk
1x Woodfall Primus

I'm not sure if this is his exact list or what his sideboard looks like. I don't remember if he plays much mana ramp (Search for Tomorrow and Sakura-Tribe Elder both help a lot). I think that's a decent recollection of what his sideboard looks like, but I'm not positive on that either (just that it had the usual green hatecrap found in Modern).

also Gruesome Encore can be upgraded. Same with Rend Flesh and Deathmark. Rootgrapple and Showstopper are trash

Excellent deck, I played a lot against a friend with a Doran's deck. For flavour I would suggest Lignify, Reach of Branches, Rootgrapple and maybe Bramblecrush. :)
