Selfless Spirit Discussion

TheVectornaut on Can't touch this - please help

Cards in the side that I think could work in the main are Dungrove Elder , Ambuscade , Rancor , Shield of the Oversoul , and maybe Ironscale Hydra . Cards that fit the general idea of the sideboard include Kogla, the Titan Ape , Mold Shambler , Reclamation Sage , and Yasharn, Implacable Earth . Other common SB options in these colors could be Stony Silence , Rest in Peace , Leyline of Sanctity , Selfless Spirit , Kor Firewalker , Rule of Law , Force of Vigor , Qasali Pridemage , and Scavenging Ooze .

At this point, this deck is far enough removed from the deathtouch lure plan that I think it could be worth swapping out those cards to go all-in on bogles or aura/hexproof instead. Cards like Slippery Bogle and Silhana Ledgewalker tend to pair well with aura buffs like Spirit Mantle and Ethereal Armor .

wallisface on $25 Worldslayer

The big issue I always had with worldslayer is that it costs too much to both play & equip. Imo this deck feels quite slow, and I think it can ruin lives a lot faster.

I know it’s a very different deck to what you have here, but the best way I found to abuse the card was to cheat it out with Quest for the Holy Relic - using stuff like Squadron Hawk to ensure i’d drop 5 creatures at a reasonable pace, and then things like Selfless Spirit to make sure the board wipe kept my creatures around (which can then just win through chip damage after the world is slain). Being a mostly flyer deck was often enough to ensure the worldslayer dealt its damage (especially because you can Quest at instant speed)

Omniscience_is_life building a sideboard for this might be a little tricky, cause there are going to be a lot of matchups your brew is going to struggle against. Your best bet will be to figure out what decks your local meta tends to play, and gear your sideboard up to deal with them.

Particular things your sideboard should look to deal with (if its in your local meta)

  • some kind of land hate vs Tron, and also maybe Valukut.

  • some kind of grave hate vs dredge & geaveyard decks. There’s lots of 0-1 mana artifacts to help you here. But also Remorseful Cleric

  • Veil of Summer for control & dimir matchups

  • some way to not auto-lose to burn, prowess, etc (something like Kor Firewalker )

  • if your meta includes lots of HammerTime and Infect decks, you’ll need more interaction. But in any case, you’ll want ways to stop combo decks auto-winning. Eidolon of Rhetoric (or its better more recently printed flyer) might be good here.

  • some way to avoid auto-losing to board wipes. So something like Selfless Spirit .

The above would be a good start to being able to cope with lots of modern decks, and probably get your sideboard really close to 15 cards.

You want to use creature cards in your sideboard to answer things where possible - as then you can get them by both Coco and Finale.

Hopefully your meta doesn’t run many tribal decks of their own, as sideboarding against them will be tricky, and unfortunately i think your deck will just auto-lose to them whatever you do anyway. The other big threat will be Jund, which i just don’t see your deck being able to generate enough value to ever keep up with (you might need 4x Veil of Summer sideboard just to give yourself a chance here)

Omniscience_is_life, some examples of how the 5 modern-playable tribes operate, to give you an idea of what you’re up against:

The above decks can all win their games by turn 4 or 5, most of them giving the opponent constant grief while doing so.

As a further example, Slivers are not a modern-viable tribe, because just throwing creatures down on the board and hoping for the best doesn’t cut it in the modern environment.

I think you need to consider what you’re actually getting out of Dryads, and whether you want this to be a competitive deck, or a casual/meme deck.

Before worrying about sideboarding, I'd focus on getting the main down to 60 cards. The closer you are to the minimum deck size, the more likely it is you'll draw the best cards in your deck. In this case, it looks like you want to build a party deck with Haktos the Unscarred as one of the bombs. The first thing I'd do is identify which cards are actively working towards that end or are particularly efficient. If something doesn't fit those descriptions, cut it. If it does, try to acquire multiple copies of it. For example, Gore Swine isn't doing anything here that a party member couldn't do better, so I'd remove it. Compare that to Expedition Champion who has more stats for the same cost and actively synergizes with the warrior theme, so having 4 of him wouldn't be bad. You can apply that logic to the entire deck. Practiced Tacticsis better than Sandblast. Suspension Field is more cost effective than Skybind. And so on.

After thinning the deck to its strongest options, then I'd focus on upgrades. Seek out other decks with similar goals and see what they're running. You can then endeavor to purchase the best cards you see in such examples, budget permitting. I don't know much about Boros party, but a quick search revealed Archpriest of Iona, Grotag Bug-Catcher, Stonework Packbeast, Squad Commander, Journey to Oblivion, Kargan Intimidator, Luminarch Aspirant, Relic Axe, Goma Fada Vanguard, Robber of the Rich, Tazri, Beacon of Unity, Fissure Wizard, and Seasoned Hallowblade, and that's only looking at standard. Modern brings even more options, particularly for Boros warriors. Arashin Foremost, Boros Reckoner, Mardu Woe-Reaper, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Obsidian Battle-Axe, Grim Lavamancer, Jeering Instigator, Fire-Belly Changeling, Grand Abolisher, Mirror Entity, Bygone Bishop, and Selfless Spirit all come to mind.

Pus Kami and Sustaining Spirit seem a little situational sure you'll get soulshift for the first one and removal at the same time if facing anything with black in it it can be a problem. Whereas the second card can protect you, the bigger problem is the constant upkeep you have to pay for. Have you tested out Kami of False Hope or Selfless Spirit?
