Sundering Growth Discussion
1 month ago
I agree with Gavriel, except for one thing. The white deck could run a couple of Call to Glory to untap all creatures (also gives pseudo-vigilance and the element of surprise). The curve on the white deck is way too high, and there are too many counterspells in the blue deck. Repeatable token generation is definitely the way to go. Consider things like Populate, Growing Ranks, Sundering Growth. To interact with big threats from the blue deck, Oblivion Ring definitely could find a place. To give white a "sleep" effect, I like Blinding Light. And the Whelming Waves do seem especially cruel against the white deck. If you keep them in, you also need to give white a nasty edge to play. Celestial Dawn would wreck the blue deck entirely. You could also include things like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Conqueror's Flail, Grand Abolisher or Silence to give white a competitive edge against all the counterspells (and they're all pretty expensive, because they are so effective).
Rhys the Redeemed would be an awesome include for the white deck. You might also look for things that make bigger scarier tokens, like 4/4 angels Moonsilver Spear or Seraphic Greatsword. Or low to the ground anthems like Honor of the Pure. Plus a little card draw in there somehow. Not white's strong suit, but something like Mentor of the Meek might work.

TheMeadiator: Thanks for the suggestions and upvote! It does tend to pop off pretty quick haha, with reasonably good recovery from wipes and no reliance on any one strategy to find a win. =)
I really resonate with a lot of your suggestions! Wurmcoil Engine is one of my favourite cards (full stop haha) and originally had included Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar in the build with this type of token generation in mind. In the end I opted to play more around effects that produced tokens as a result of gaining life or instant speed activation. Alas, a great seller of the wurms is their wipe protection, something I was conscious of when veering away from that strategy, and included Hangarback Walker and Lifeblood Hydra for that kind of coverage. :)
Heroic Intervention is maybe my only hard disagree. It can save my other permanents from removal and wipes for one less mana, so in that regard I consider it to be integral to the deck. However I've been seriously considering cutting Unbreakable Formation in favour of Rootborn Defenses if I can't find a way to include all three of them lol.
Aura Mutation with Divine Visitation and/or Parallel Lives/Anointed Procession/Doubling Season is pretty nutty, and I highly recommend haha! I had originally cut Sundering Growth for Aura Mutation haha though I was thinking about cutting Aura Shards (less likely) or Dismantling Wave to put it back in.
Sorry to hit you with the wall of text haha, great suggestions and thanks again! =)

This is so great! I really like Trostani. I made a wurm deck with her at the helm. Wurms have really great synergy with her because of their big butts and the propensity for breaking into tokens for her populate effect.
For additional populate effects (and therefore lifegain), you could look at Rootborn Defenses in your maybeboard instead of Heroic Intervention, Sundering Growth instead of Aura Mutation, and Growing Ranks is a really great enchantment that could replace more expensive duplicating spells if need be.
Anyway, really fun deck that looks like it could get out of control really fast.

The vanilla wurms are in there for curve and for things like Descendants' Path , and just so I don't get knocked around before I can come online. Wurms are not fast lol. Ideally, there would be better cheaper wurms, but most good wurms start at 6 cmc.
Thanks a bunch for the suggestions! I will definitely pick some of those up on my next order.

Seeing the deck laid out, a couple of things come to mind. — These cards fit with the Wurm + Token Theme . Symbiotic Wurm (not wurm tokens, but still a good boy.) Roar of the Wurm Wurmweaver Coil Second Harvest
— Treat things that generate Token Wurms as functional "creatures". That way, you don't have to slot in vanilla wurms, and can instead run a few more populate cards, or token mechanic cards.
— On Populate, easy replacement could be swapping Naturalize with Sundering Growth
— Predator's Rapport ... in your BEST case scenario, 30 life isn't anything to sneeze at. HOWEVER: if you aren't building around life-gain, it's not a great card on its own. Try Rootborn Defenses , which is super versatile on offense and on defense, and grows your army.

Omniscience_is_life Ah yes, I had thought about Nature's Chosen but went for Instill Energy . It doesn't work that well though. The haste is only relevant when you have 7 mana in turn three or four, which really never happens. But it let's Atla untap and is great for giving haste to Blightsteel or Ulamog. Mutavault and Sundering Growth I am running, but Cream of the Crop seems amazing here!
Oh yeah, I put my deck back to private... aaand it's back in. It's still a protype: Monster Omlette

Quickspell you're not wrong, I do have a lot of creatures--but I also think you'll find noncreature gems with high synergy like Nature's Chosen , Mutavault , Sundering Growth , and Cream of the Crop (that one's basically scry 10 with Ulamog!)
Sorry if any of those cards I spotlighted are ones you already have in the deck, your link seems to have stopped working so I couldn't double-check :/

Nice Primer! I always love some good 'ol Naya stompy action so you get an upvote from me.
I play in a meta with a lot more graveyard decks so 2-3 grave hate pieces are necessary as gravepact or a looped Plaguecrafter wreck stompy decks. Your list is tight so the only suggestion I would make is swapping Sundering Growth for Return to Nature . You only get the benefit from Growth while you're ahead meanwhile RtN can help you get out of a soft lock.
