Runed Arch, Skeleton Key, Floriferous Vinewall, Endoskeleton, and Wall of Shields(which doesn't say on the card, but has apparently been Errata'd to include Defender) could be worth considering to include in this deck.

Also, a niche combo you could pull off would be to include a Wickerwing Effigy and use it to cast your Tree of Perdition which would then come in with all of its abilties, but as a 1/1. Keep it alive for a turn cycle and decide who you like the least. Bonus points if you have a way to do it on the same turn, such as with Tyvar, Jubilant Brawler or your Crashing Drawbridge

I'd diversify by adding cards like Assault Formation and Tree of Redemption or Tree of Perdition. I run a similar deck based around toughness and I have 8 copies of cards that change the way creatures interact with power and toughness with some draw and I still struggle some games. Some other good cards for you would be Tower Defense and Huatli, the Sun's Heart hope this helps.

So I read about a combo that uses Tree of Perdition and Turn to Frog that works despite the “loses all abilities” clause if the ability and spell go on the stack in the right order. Could the same be said if say, I put the tree’s ability on the stack and use a morbid Tragic Slip in the right order?

- Luminous Broodmoth and Darksteel Mutation

- Training Grounds and Galecaster Colossus

- Tree of Perdition and Buried Alive

- Shenanigans and Anger

- Devoted Druid and Eternal Witness

Mostly just went with cards I've used often across multiple decks. Not necessarily my hands down favorites in each color but clearly cards I enjoy enough to use more than most cards.

Jb_248 on Bolting the Tree

The tree is killed instantly after Diminish resolves (aka state-based action that does not go to the stack), so when the tree's ability tries to resolve afterwards, the ability will try to check for the tree's toughness, which is unexistent as the tree is dead, therefore making the ability illegal, so it will not resolve.

Note the first ruling on Gatherer for Tree of Perdition: "If Tree of Perdition isn't on the battlefield when the ability resolves, the exchange can't happen and the ability will have no effect. Notably, activating the ability and giving Tree of Perdition -13/-13 in response won't cause your opponent to lose the game."

Jb_248 on Bolting the Tree

After a player activates Tree of Perdition, the priority is passed (in the AP-nAP order: AP = Active Player, player whose turn is, nAP = non Active player, ie the rest of the players in turn order), so that anyone can respond. If the same player then uses his/her priority to cast Diminish, it goes to the stack so it resolves before the tree's activated ability. Then again priority is passed, and then if someone casts a Lightning Bolt targetting the tree as a response, it will also go to the stack to be resolved both before Diminish and the tree. When bolt resolves, it'll make 3 damage on the tree, which will initially survive as it has 13 toughness at that moment. But, when diminish resolves, the tree's toughness will decrease to 1, making the previous damage dealt to it lethal (damage does not dissappear until the turn ends), thus killing the tree.

It is important then that the Bolt is casted after the diminish, otherwise tree controller will most likely not cast the diminish, making the bolt pointless against the tree ability.

How does this work? Tree of Perdition and Diminish. Can the player controlling the Tree say they have an action that they want to add like diminish while they are tapping the tree? And can I respond to that with for example a Lightning Bolt before Diminish resolves even if it was an action that they used while tapping the tree? I don’t know if anyone can even do that. I know that Diminish will resolve first before the tree when tapped so if I bolted the tree while affected by diminish then it just gets destroyed. I read the rulings for the card but it just was so confusing to me. Please let me know how that works. Thank you for your time.

Hey bro. Quick question, Tree of Perdition with Diminish, I know you can still tap it even with diminish but can you respond to it with for example Lightning Bolt once it dropped its attack and defense so the Ability don’t resolve? The rulings confused me.
