Sylvan Tutor Discussion

Finding combo pieces is important. Tutors really increase consistency in being able to fetch Ancestral Statue and Walking Ballista from your deck. Trinket Mage fetches Ballista; Imperial Recruiter does as well, but isn't cheap; Worldly Tutor and Sylvan Tutor are great, but also expensive. Other great options are Shared Summons and Weird Harvest.

Spirits on Arahbo, Budget... for Cats EDH

3 weeks ago

Hi TzickyT,

Deck is solid. I would get Tree of Tales and Ancient Den to support the Puresteel Paladin. Perhaps replace Memorial to Glory so you don't weaken your Blackblade Reforged.

I think more important than mana (land and artifact where all the $$$ is spent), is Sylvan Tutor and Worldly Tutor will give you a higher consistency on T3/T4 infect wins. Unfortunately they aren't cheap unless they get reprints.

I don't see any cards I wouldn't play in the main, I like the inclusion of Sword of the Animist and Krosan Vorine.

Harrow is an under-utilized ramp, it's benefit over something like Cultivate is that the lands come in untapped, so your net cost for that extra land is CMC1 (sac the land you just tapped of course) and you can play something else that turn!

Generous Gift the new Beast Within.

I have been getting tired of Kemba, Kha Regent lack of performance as lately in my budget deck, often feels like a mis-utilization of equipment, unless I have the equip on-board to re-purpose for combat, and now that Balan, Wandering Knight is out of budget for my deck now, makes it even worse for me. Felt like Pride Sovereign 2.0. But then again, some games I have high success with both those cats in my budget league with the go-wide they provide, so really can't exclude either.

Has a cohesive strategy, should be out to early aggro, has a couple built in mid-range ability to win, good lifegain. I would assume it's pretty fun to play too.

ElitePlaneswalker on Food Chain / Sceptor Uro (cEDH)

hey just wanted to say, i love looking thru the list! i also play uro, and post-flash i think iso/rev and food chain are the best options him. one kinda glaring thing tho: you have Sylvan Tutor w/ only one tutorable creature (Lotus Cobra). maybe you can free up that space for better synergy like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy or a hate piece like Back to Basics?

I built basically the same thing, except I went Worldly Tutor and Sylvan Tutor instead of Tezzeret the Seeker and Merchant Scroll. I'm on the fence about Mox Amber vs. Grim Monolith.

_qwaserdf: I think the discussion around Sylvan Tutor has come up before and the response was that it's just too slow for the deck. And at sorcery speed and top of library, it telegraphs your play too much.

Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy could probably go into an infinite mana combo Thrasios/Tymna list, but this one is designed around Thassa's Oracle and as such has ditched all of the infinite mana packages. But yes, you could use him to help break parity with mana dorks and Dramatic Reversal/Isochron Scepter. Just a quick point - if you have infinite mana, it doesn't matter how many times Thrasios has been removed, you have infinite mana to cast him.

I know it isn't the best tutor, but I can see Sylvan Tutor being in this deck to fetch up something like Hulk. Even though it is nowhere near the power level of the instant-speed Worldly Tutor, I still think it would make for a more consistent flash hulk win. Also, do any of you guys remember the weird days of Flash Rector? (Flash with Academy Rector)

Bro, are you even pimp if you don't have Sylvan Tutor? This pile is excellent though. I think that Rhythm of the Wild is probably the cut. It's great in casual Jund gobbos, but that's not what we're here to do, is it?

triproberts12 on Storm of Eldrazi

Sylvan Tutor and Worldly Tutor are the obvious includes. Beyond that, the deck pretty much builds itself, it's just a matter of what power level you want it to be at, since this pile has everything from cEDH staples to Llanowar Tribe. I'm assuming some of these choices are cards you already have, so you'll probably just have to playtest it in your meta to determine what stays and what goes.
