Silverback Elder

Creature — Ape Shaman

Whenever you cast a creature spell, choose one —

  • Destroy target artifact or enchantment.
  • Look at the top five cards of your library. You may put a land card from among them onto the battlefield tapped. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.
  • You gain 4 life.

Papini on I wanna be a man, mancub

Gleeock yes the ape/monkeys are a little dull, but recently they've been printing one good one every few sets Kogla, the Titan Ape, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Silverback Elder and now Kibo, Uktabi Prince. I hope they keep up this trend.

Garruk's Uprising is a bit awkward because it only hit on 8ish of your creatures but the trample is amazing. I'm still looking at the card draw in the deck it feels borderline... I was thinking about maybe putting in Goblin Engineer to fetch Idol of Oblivion or other cheap stuff but it doesn't feel great.

Cariddis not sure if you're still playing Kamahl, but I recently added Silverback Elder in place of Elder Gargaroth and it's been pretty good in my last few games. It's more mid-rangey and you've moved to a more aggressive build but I think it's worth looking into. I also tried Defiler of Vigor for a few games with this vision of bouncing free elves in my head but most of my table saw it as an immediate threat each time. Might be worth looking into. Hope you're doing alright!

Eh, I feel like Cavalier of Thorns is very little value for 5 mana compared to what a lot of cards in this deck can do with a lot less. It might be better than The Gitrog Monster but what I liked about Silverback Elder was that with creatures it is a fairly powerful land-fetching engine, and it can be used to delete Blood Moon. Long shot because I wasn't sure how often you actually play multiple creatures, especially at a point which would be after you can get a 5-drop on the field. I'm not surprised if triggering on creature casts is a dealbreaker.

I just looked through a few other options like Silverback Elder and Cavalier of Thorns, considered basic search land to battlefield sorceries, felt they didn't measure up against Scapeshift, and landed on Wrenn and Seven. I don't like that he isn't searchable or that it takes two turns to really get a lot of value out of him, but I think he offers more to the deck than Cavalier of Thorns. I could be totally wrong.

As another long shot... Chance for Glory?

Looong shot but... what about Silverback Elder?

Wickked on Henzie toolbox

Sweet deck. Very similar to mine in general. There are cards that I've found to fit in Henzie really well that you may enjoy. Protean Hulk ,Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Braids, Arisen Nightmare ,Silverback Elder ,Pathbreaker Ibex and Ilharg, the Raze-Boar. I've found that Henzie to be a ton of fun to brew with. Mainly due to him not being a big hate-bearer, its nice to fly under the radar. Let me know what you think of my suggestions. Here's my decklist for ideas. Stop in and let me know what you think I could improve.

Zooming through your mana base, I want to know how it runs - it seems like it could benefit from som basics - that said Bojuka Bog is an amazing addition and gives me ideas.

Looking at your creatures, I wonder if your getting the best value from mana dorks like Birds of Paradise , Bloom Tender Ignoble HierarchSomberwald Sage. Sakura-Tribe Elder and Silverback Elder are less risky in terms of board wipes and pay off the similarly, with your land base I think you could be fine running something else.

I absolutely love Braids, Arisen Nightmare in Henzie. What I like most about your deck is the clear focus on end game result. I have a lot of difficulty explicitly thinking about and building around win conditions.

Crow-Umbra on My Viper Don't Want None Unless You've Got-

Thank you for the suggestions SufferFromEDHD. After some consideration I decided to swap out Karametra's Acolyte for Questing Beast (I have a copy in my binders), and Utopia Sprawl for my copy of Birds of Paradise from my recently recycled Brokkos, Apex of Forever deck. I liked Utopia Sprawl since it dodged most of the removal that Mana Dorks are most susceptible to. Is it necessary for a mono-green deck? It's debatable, but I'm usually happy to draw into it early on.

I like Life's Legacy because of its low CMC, although I do like that Momentous Fall is an instant, but don't currently own a copy. I do have a copy of Greater Good though.

I picked up Hall of Gemstone for about $5 a couple of years ago, and was surprised when I saw what its new price is. It's a good card, but I can understand why other players might omit it from their lists between the its effect and the price tag.

As for your other suggestions, I don't currently own copies of any of them, but will consider them a bit more. I'm planning on picking up cards for other decks in the next month or two, but had this deck as one of the lowest in my consideration for new upgrades aside from maybe a Silverback Elder
