Sylvan Scrying


Search your library for a land card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Trumpet on Ezuri's Elfaggedon

1 day ago

I recommend making room for: Glimpse of Nature, Natural Order, Worldly Tutor, Vitalize, Jeweled Lotus, Boseiju, Who Endures, Sylvan Scrying, Expedition Map

And depending on your meta: Carpet of Flowers, Endurance, Obscuring Haze

Also, just wondering if there's some reason for the fetches other than minor thinning? No shade if it's just for thinning, I just didn't know if I was missing something that relies on it or not. I'm in the camp of being against thinning for the sake of thinning if you don't think you'll play past turn 7 or so (when it is more likely to matter) and you're otherwise giving an opponent graveyard food for deathrite shaman and other stuff.

Finally, if I were running an elf deck, Marwyn would be my commander instead of Ezuri especially since you're already running all the infinite mana stuff for her. I'd just use Ezuri as a backup craterhoof.

I've been playing around with Green Post. Sylvan Scrying and Ancient Stirrings are a bit faster than the Expedition Map, and Stirrings can be used later to grab a bomb instead. What really makes it though is the use of Arbor Elf along with Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth. Turn your posts into Forests and then untap them with the Elf.

I had a Blue Eldrazi Eldrazi Blues deck that used Maps and Trinket Mages to get them, and recently prototyped a Green Version Eldrazi Greens. I left my Blue Cards I took out in the MaybeBoard. Maybe the Green messes up your theme, but at least you can kind of playtest with it to see if it works for you.

Good Luck.

legendofa on Dragons

Welcome to the club!

First thing I see here is a high average mana cost and relatively few lands and ramp. The Dragon Arch and Quicksilver Amulet help a little, but I suggest cutting a few Dragons and adding more lands and cards that find lands like Sylvan Scrying or Expedition Map. The color balance looks good, you just need more of it. You probably need at least 37-38 lands, if not more, and I would take a hard look at any cards above mana value 6, and cut the ones that don't measure up. Lower-cost dragons, like Icingdeath, Frost Tyrant or even Slumbering Dragon or Korlessa, Scale Singer will also help reduce costs.

My next thought is to take advantage of the legendary-ness of a lot of your dragons. Time of Need, Bard Class, and Mox Amber can all help, depending on how much money you're willing to spend.

Stardragon on Land Search?

3 weeks ago

So with Baldur's Gate coming out with 9 new gates I thought of making a gate deck with Maze's End as a win con. i need more non basic land search (preferably to the battlefield but to the hand if need) and some extra play additional land cards, i have a small amount added ATM I have

Explore, Hour of Promise, Pir's Whim, Reap and Sow, Sylvan Scrying, Tempt with Discovery, Wargate, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Oracle of Mul Daya, Ulvenwald Hydra, Wayward Swordtooth, Kiora, the Crashing Wave, Expedition Map, Crop Rotation and Exploration. Am I missing any? Should I add some light Landfall as well?

wallisface on TONY TRON 3/1/22-current (5/9/22)

Some thoughts:

  • while you want to stay away from the current green-tron build, there’s still a lot we can learn from it in regards to the tron-assembly setup. They typically run 1 more land, but importantly run a playset of Sylvan Scrying to almost guarantee Tron by turn 4 at the latest.

  • while 61 cards isn’t much above 60, it’s still a (very minor) concession in power & consistency. Always aim for a 60 card deck.

  • Traditional Tron decks have to expect to face tron-hate cards post-sideboard, but you’ll also have to expect to face graveyard-hate and artifact-hate cards also, all of which are pretty common to include in sideboards… that means you’ll probably be facing 6-9 hate cards post-sideboard, which will be really hard to deal with, and really hard to build against. Having 3-different routes to heavily-disrupt your plans makes me feel the deck is overcomplicated… and it feels like maybe this brew would work better without adding the tronlands to the mix? In any case, i think you need to simplify your plans to narrow the number of hatepieces that can give you grief.

Amulet of Vigor might be worth including since it works well alongside Scapeshift, Splendid Reclamation, Lotus Field, Mesmeric Orb, etc.

Others you might like are Bone Miser, Stone-Seeder Hierophant, Sakura-Tribe Scout, Burgeoning, Sylvan Scrying, Dread Return, Dryad Arbor, Deserted Temple, Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Thug, Kodama of the East Tree, Dark Ritual, Hickory Woodlot, Peat Bog

hiddengibbons on Modal Dual Sided Cards

3 months ago

Can I use Sylvan Scrying to fetch a double sided card such as Valakut Awakening  Flip because one side is a land. or do I treat the card as an instant because side one is shows on the card while it’s in the library?

Can I discard Valakut Awakening  Flip land side up with Molten Vortex?

ClockworkSwordfish on Tyrannosaurs in F-14s!!

3 months ago

Very fun concept-wise, and you've got no shortage of top-end bruisers, but I get the sense this deck won't have a lot to do in the early turns of the game. You might want to swap out some of your super mana-intensive critters for the likes of Drover of the Mighty, Marauding Raptor, Otepec Huntmaster and Priest of the Wakening Sun.

Of course, there are plenty of non-dinosaur-related cards worth considering to get you on track, including Birds of Paradise, Nature's Claim (what's 4 life in this format?), Hull Breach and Sylvan Scrying, which can grab your most useful nonbasics. Hopefully some of these gives your F-14s a smoother ride!
