Viridian Emissary Discussion

hey Boza, thanks for your opinion. I was already thinking about adding one more land, or maybe two, but definitely not more. Adding also Loam Dryad wouldn't really do because I'm not looking to ramp up some big crature, and actually having only three lands in play can let you play a good match. What's more, you'll get the lands you'll need with Viridian Emissary, and with Altar's Reap. About the "needing a big creature" (actually only 4 cards do), yeah, having a Bloodthrone Vampire down on the board it's not always granted, but you can easily make up for her using Hunger of the Howlpack on a 3/3 Boar token, or on Viridian Emissary, which lets you play at least a 5/5 paying only 3 mana with Miming Slime or leeching 5 life with Essence Harvest (and it can often be game ending or game changing). Anyway, what would you suggest removing to add in more lands? I was thinking about moving Sylvok Lifestaff to the sideboard. I'll think about adding Loam Dryad (or some Llanowar Elves, which I prefer) instead of the two lands, to add more possible sacrifices

Gleeock , most definitely. I think creativity is at the heart of what white needs. I definitely agree with Maro that the way to make white good at EDH isn't by making it more like other colors, but an experienced player would never mistake Boreas Charger for a green card. The end result might be the same as Cultivate or Viridian Emissary , but the means and philosophy are very clearly white.

If you are looking for card draw. Smothering Abomination is a great card for a Meren deck. If you would like to refer to a Meren build, you can refer to mine. Regarding Viridian Emissary , that is one of my staples for ramp in my build. That card stacked with Primal Growth is a great combo to get 3 basic lands out on the field, 2 untapped and 1 tapped. Another nice option is to put Wood Elves into the deck. The deck name is SAC POWER.

LordBlackblade Thank you again! I really dig your list, we seem to like a similar playstyle. I think I'm going with the Viridian Emissary for now since it seems to be my weakest ramp card and do some testing with Greater Good .

Well, here's my deck for reference: Going Down to Value Town.
