Skyshroud Claim Discussion
1 day ago
Took out the three cards that turned my lands into creatures and replaced them with ramp spells that could help me get Lord Windgrace out on T4 more routinely.
This also brings my curve down, which is nice. I'm also considering replacing Explosive Vegetation with either Skyshroud Claim or Rampant Growth . Not sure, let me know what y'all think. While the deck is mostly green, being able to grab any basics I need without having to get Forests specifically is pretty nice.

I guess this is a deck you build from cards you had lying around in your binder. Or just a fun casual deck. I do have some tips for you for this deck.
I can see you have quite a few cards that you have 1 of and not a playset which is fine just less effeicent but i cant force you to buy a playset of Primeval Bounty (i guess that is your wincon alongside Fungal Sprouting .)
More ramp is key for big bois green. The more lands you have the more big bois you can play out. I would personally recommend Nature's Lore or Skyshroud Claim if you wanna go for the "search" tactic or just go for mana dorks some like Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic they are really good for ramping and in late game chump blocking.
Saproling synergy if thats your ULTIMATE GAME PLAN. Cards like Sporecrown Thallid is really good.

Nice deck, I especially like the Animation Module combo! what about some green ramp spells like Farseek , Kodama's Reach or Skyshroud Claim instead of the Llanowar Elves and mana artifacts (they are quite fragile to removal or board wipes). I would also consider more draw spells like Rishkar's Expertise .

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor, talk to me some more about Need for Speed . I like it, but I'm afraid I'll a land behind in giving critters haste. With Angry Omnath or Titania out, if I sac a land to give target creature haste, I'm not able to give haste to the Elemental that comes into play because of the sac, am I? Not that that's a deal breaker, I just want to make sure how it plays out.
Also, Wayward Swordtooth is under consideration. Good option. Skyshroud Claim will go in eventually. The only reason it isn't in right now is because I'm not running that many dual lands. When I get more added, I'll swap it in.
Thanks again for all your help here, guys!

Made some changes based on your suggestions, let me know what you think. Longish read condensed.
Argothian Wurm : Early game goodness, late game could slow us down facing certain decks that can abuse lands.
Naya's Charm: I have mixed feelings about. 3dmg to creature only feels like a waste. Returning a card from the yard could prove useful if commander tax adds up. Lastly and most used is clearing a path to swing. Should this slot be filled with a better removal spell, or is there worth I'm missing here?
Lurking Predators : Our new commander has a similar ability that's less annoying. Also its not a 'May' trigger so we could potentially be forced into casting our deck into a wipe.
Mayael's Aria : There's no other counter synergy in the deck, but bigger is always better. Surprise wincon? Slot in something better?
Garruk, Primal Hunter vs Vivien Reid : One or both? Garruk protects himself on the ground, draws cards, and makes a mess of Wurms. Vivian finds critters, destroys flyers (glaring weakness in the deck), and an emblem to boost our field. Both technically have the same turn clock to go off except Garruk can be used as a 5cmc one shot draw spell, whereas vivian can minus and have points remaining.
Something else I've been mulling over is what to replace these last 2/3 with... as they are no longer as useful, at least not all of them. Piper may have a use to stay being: a) it's a creature that can be egged, and b) with a haste enabler out it can be 5cmc for 2 creatures.
Belbe's Portal : 8cmc(5/t:3) investment for 1 creature limited to type.
Quicksilver Amulet : 8cmc (4/t:4) investment for 1 creature
Elvish Piper : still may have it's uses. 5cmc (4/t:1) investment, haste enabler preferred prior to casting.

I completely understand your stance on Crucible of Worlds and Scapeshift . The only reason my deck runs 'em is because I was lucky enough to crack one of each from M19 packs. Sadly those cards aren't that cheap.
In regards to Concordant Crossroads vs. Need for Speed , it really comes down to preference. Crossroads is a fine haste enabler (though since you do have access to red I would suggest one that isn't a symmetrical effect), but I like Need for Speed because it doesn't require a huge non-land board state to win a game. All you need is Titania, Protector of Argoth on the battlefield and you can then quickly take down the table. Throw in Splendid Reclamation for to an immense set of landfall triggers (basically building your own Scapeshift ). Plus being able to sac a land when you want is pretty solid with The Gitrog Monster and Lord Windgrace .
I think if you are not going to include Oracle or Azuza, then Rites of Flourishing is a fine replacement since you should benefit more from the extra land drops than your opponents. Wayward Swordtooth is another option that is a little easier on the wallet (though even he is getting up there these days). Just as an aside, one way you can get around the lack of Oracle and friends is to use 'big' ramp spells which drop multiple lands onto the battlefield at once. So cards like Summer Bloom (which you already run), Skyshroud Claim , Harvest Season , Traverse the Outlands , Collective Voyage , New Frontiers , Harrow , Far Wanderings (if you have threshold), and Animist's Awakening . Basically you use your ramp spells as replacements for your extra land plays. It's a bit slower than playing extra lands every turn, but the landfall effect is all the same.

Astral cornucopia. You have to put a lot of mana in to it and it only gives one colour of mana in a 4 colour deck.
Everflowing Chalice. You won't need all that colourless mana and again requires a lot of mana dumped in to it for value.
The best ramp and colour fixing in my opion are Birds of Paradise , Bloom Tender , Noble Hierarch , Nature's Lore , Skyshroud Claim , Crop Rotation , Tempt with Discovery , Farseek , Smothering Tithe , Fellwar Stone , Mox Amber , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Expedition Map and Arcane Signet once it's released.
