Collected Company is one of the better cards in a deck like this.

If you run Green Sun's Zenith, I think you should run Dryad Arbor 100% of the time. Having the option to 1 mana ramp tutor as needed is the best in the game, even if it's fragile.

If you want to do the whole tap ten elves thing Benefactor's Draught, Vitalize, and Mobilize are useful. And as long as you're using mana dorks, they are good throughout the game. Birchlore Rangers is also a good mana dork for getting either color as needed if it matters. Like some of the others you have it can use creatures with summoning sickness.

Add Regal Force, you'll have the mana, and it draws infinity. Toski, Bearer of Secrets is also amazing at this.

Consider Patriarch's Bidding for when your ridiculous board state earns the response it will deserve. Also Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant

I cant build a green/black deck without Gaze of Granite and Pernicious Deed. They are great

Timberwatch Elf for the commander, or maybe Gempalm Strider might be better than Overrun. Trample isnt so important with so many creatures that will likely outnumber blockers, and the extra card from cycling and utility of another creature is worth considering. Ezuri, Renegade Leader is already in your deck and he's definitely the best option though. Beastmaster Ascension also works like a really inexpensive overun and turns on really easily.

Some of the green and black backgrounds area awesome Criminal Past, Cultist of the Absolute, Haunted One and Raised by Giants will stick around for the next cast even after your commander gets removed.

Consider Constant Mists or even instead of Fog, however I really don't think you need any of the fog effects. Honestly, you might actually need to worry about other people's fogs instead. Questing Beast is the only card that is capable of piercing though a Teferi's Protection or The One Ring in these colors. THrow in a Natural Order and you can get that, or a Craterhoof Behemoth when it matters most

Viridian Zealot, Reclamation Sage, Nullmage Shepherd, and Elvish Lyrist are useful for removal. You already have Glissa, but I dont think she's enough.

Elvish Champion might be your best lord. Pair it with Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth. Also definitely want to add Shizo, Death's Storehouse. Having lathril connect is important.

If you keep the tyvar planeswalkers, Harald Unites the Elves does a lot.

Kithkin Mourncaller might draw cards to use with your excessive mana. Leaf-Crowned Visionary, Skemfar Avenger, Miara, Thorn of the Glade do too, at a cost.

consider Crop Rotation. It can get nythkos, yavimaya.

Looking at your list you have almost nothing that turns on lathril in combat. look at Alpha Authority, Familiar Ground, Alpha Status, Gift of Doom, Rancor, Spider Umbra, Alpha Authority, Canopy Cover, Vorrac Battlehorns. Fallen Ideal is possibly my favorite with the die/sacrifce synergies you already have. Im not a fan of token doublers. I think youd be better off powering up lathril to make more tokens in the first place.

I would dump any ramp card that costs more than 3

Hello! I went through your list looking for spots to upgrade, but I found almost none: congratulations, it is really optimized!

Still, I believe you might want to consider some of these cards to increase your engine:

Ramp: Cultivate and Llanowar Elves could be Starfield Mystic, Bear Umbra, Burgeoning or Exploration instead, to stick with the Enchantments theme.

Draw: Don't forget the other enchantresses (Satyr Enchanter, Verduran Enchantress). I would take out Hyena Umbra and Cartouche of Solidarity for them.

Tutors: Heliod's Pilgrim might be better than Moon-Blessed Cleric, since it puts the card in your hand.

Pillowfort: Raking Canopy is probably more effective to deflect fliers than Spider Umbra. Elephant Grass could take White Sun's Twilight's place, since the former does not blow your own field.

Evasion: You might want Unquestioned Authority for extra evasion. It might replace Aegis of the Gods. (In my experience, players' spells do not usually target other players.)

Hate pieces: Rest in Peace, Ground Seal, Solemnity, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience are some cards you might want to include.

Housegheist on So Many Spiders

Some spider suggestions:

Llanowar Greenwidow, Oran-Rief Recluse, Glowstone Recluse, Sentinel Spider, Sweet-Gum Recluse, Hatchery Spider, Doom Weaver, Obelisk Spider, Rotwidow Pack

Spider-Support: Curse of Clinging Webs, Eaten by Spiders, Hidden Spider, Spider Umbra, Webspinner Cuff

Bramble Sovereign could produce Spider Copy-tokens on etb. If you plan playing 3 colours… Thantis, the Warweaver?

And… what about Lolth, Spider Queen?

Edit: with 3.3 cmc, you have a pretty low landcount. I would cut some non-creature-spells

That's true, you do probably need some protection. Thankfully, green loves hexproof. Also, you're 100% right about Neverwinter but it's still not a terrible deal.

Zobi on RaH's Bogle

Hi Rahrune, I am actually building this deck! I didn't already ordered all the cards I need but here is how I made it;

I have a bunch of hexproof creatures, like Slippery Bogle, on which I try to put as much auras as I can. I have cards like Kor Spiritdancer and Season of Growth to draw a lot of cards and refill my hand. I added 4 Path to Exile to my sideboard, just in case other players have too big creatures like Lord of Extinction.

For the auras, I am relying on these;

I understand your choice on Sigarda, Host of Herons to prevent your creatures to be sacrificed but I prefer being more aggressive. I don't know if you are really focused on auras but maybe you should try voltron strategy. If you have any tips for me I will appreciate it.

I hope this will help you Rahrune!

yeah i get that you can fetch them during the opponents end step, but that doesn't negate what i said. aggro decks want lands that can enter untapped.

you could probably cut blue entirely though. you only have 1 blue card mainboard. the biggest reason to even run blue in this deck anyway is Invisible Stalker, but green offers Silhana Ledgewalker. Arcane Flight can be replaced by Spider Umbra.

Gattison on Spider Art Cards

Ah, well, Wendithewendigo went the extra step that I was too lazy to do, and tried to post this link, filtering out actual spider creatures: non-spider cards tagged as having spiders in their art... on Scryfall... by random people. (I entered the specific syntax manually into the general search bar. "art:spider -type:spider". Maybe Wendi used the "advanced search" options and that's why her link didn't work? Just speculating here.)

Keep in mind that (afaik) this feature that Scryfall offers is strictly dependent upon which volunteers take the time to tag which cards. I imagine that a lot of the time people might skip tagging obvious cards like Spider Umbra because they assume others would have already tagged it, therefore...

Unlife: For your search criteria, I recommend "running the full gauntlet" (as I call it). Search for each of the following individually (NOT altogether, with multiple search restrictions holding each other back):

  • Cards with the word "spider" in their name. https://scryfall.com/search?q=Name%3Aspider&unique=cards&as=grid&order=name (Which it sounds like you've already done.)
  • Cards with the Subtype "spider." https://scryfall.com/search?q=type%3Aspider&unique=cards&as=grid&order=name (Do NOT specify "type:creature" in your search restrictions, just in case there's a "tribal" card, or something like that.)
  • Cards with the word "spider" in their textbox. https://scryfall.com/search?as=grid&order=name&q=oracle%3Aspider (This way you find all the "tribal" instants, sorceries, enchantments, etc. that synergize with your overall theme/gimmick.)
  • Cards with spiders in their artwork (on Scryfall this is "art:spider," but you knew that, ofc ;) LINKED ABOVE; REMEMBER: LAZY)
  • And for completionists, cards with the word "spider" in the FLAVOR text. https://scryfall.com/search?as=grid&order=name&q=flavor%3Aspider (Mad respect if you go this deep, you Vorthos lil' bugger you.)

And just so nobody shows me up again, I went ahead and unlazily included the links. HAHA! Fool me once, as they say... (well, I tried too, anyway... darnit XD )

And finally, I just want to say, Blackxp has impressed the F*** out of of me with the dedication they've shown to cultivating this Vorthos bear list. Blackxp has even gone so far as to contact multiple artists to verify whether or not bears are actually depicted in the art of certain cards, and it seems like the artist is usually willing to respond honestly. So, there is always the HARDCORE option, too. :D

seshiro_of_the_orochi Thanks for the cards

FormOverFunction It may be easier, and it may be an option at some point when I have a big chunk of time, but I wanted to borrow tappedout user's memories first

Omniscience_is_life Thanks for the list, I've got most of them but Terrifying Presence is new.

Balaam__ Hmm, I may have to look into that, I never noticed the claws before.

Gattison That is awesome, I never knew scryfall would do that, thanks. It's got some great cards I never noticed, though I'm sure I'll still have to search up others if its missing things like Spider Umbra

Wendithewendigo If I can get your link to open I'll check to see if the changing search terms gave up any new cards as well, thanks.
