Yavimaya Hollow Discussion

Metroid_Hybrid on FYNN-ISH HIM!!!

Thank you for the comments & upvotes. However some didn't take the time to look at what was already in the decklist itself, and didn't get the "low to the ground" memo (suggesting huge 6-8 CMC spells).

abby315 I like your suggestions. All but Vorniclex; the CMC is too high. The Astrolabe on the other hand costs 1, filters colorless mana when needed, and can be drawn by Scrying Sheets . That, and Rhonas kind of needs to be "set-up" too, but I forgot about it granting Trample, so I'll keep that one in mind..

I'll eventually be dropping the non-basic forests (I was considering picking up a Yavimaya Hollow for one).

Profet93 on Xenagos, God of Revels that xtra combat is good

articred

I have not updated my Xenagos since exactly a year ago, so some of these suggestions do not take into account cards that have been released since then such as Jeska(i?)s will and battle mammoth which should find their way into this deck. Now onto my specific suggestions....

Beast Within - Instant speed permanent removal

Berserk - Yes, block Malignus with your 1/1, let's see how that turns out. Also to be used for politics as you can target an opponent's creature (such as their commander) who is attacking another opponent. This would be to replace Temur Battle rage IMO

Deflecting Swat - I'll say it once, I'll say it again. In Xenagos, your biggest issue is removal. You spend 5+ mana per beater in the hopes that they don't save removal. Most of your draw like hunters insight, return of the wildspeaker, momentous fall (although to a lesser extent) is based on the fact that you need a creature to target and if they remove your creature, you are shit out of luck. By adding swat, you can bluff while tapped out, protecting your creature allowing it to most likely survive to your next turn in order to cast one of the above mentioned draw spells. Moreover, this counters counterspells and redirects targeted removal, targeted draw, targeted extra turns, etc.... so much utility in 1 card. This is perhaps the second/third most powerful card in a Xenagos deck IMO

Heroic Intervention - Protection

Greater Good - THE MOST POWERFUL CARD IN ANY XENAGOS DECK. IF YOU DO NOT ADD THIS, THERE IS NOTHING MORE TO DISCUSS. THE SHEER VALUE OF THIS ALONE IS ASTRONOMICAL. Imagine casting a 6/6 beater, Xenagos doubles it to 12, they attempt to remove it, since it was going to die anyways, you sacrifice it to the "greater good" in order to draw 12 and discard 3. This doesn't include the fact that you can berserk your own creature prior to sacrificing it as well

Rancor - Nice to have, not necessary. Makes your 1/1 dorks 6 power with Xenagos, makes your beaters better. Hell, enchant it on an opponent's creature for politics

Sylvan Library - Nice to have, not necessary, but in Xenagos, it pays to have draw that isn't creature reliant.

Decimate - Can target Xenagos if there is no other enchantment. In EDH, you will always have targets. 4 for 1 is value, also note Hull Breach , it's little brother

Green Sun's Zenith - Tutor to the battlefield, yes please! While limited to green, it still is worth it. Getting what you need, when you need it.

Harmonize - Draw not based on creatures is nice to have

Life's Legacy - Similar to momentous fall, although easier to cast on the same turn as a beater. Do note that it suffers from the same issue as momentous fall, sacrificing as an additional cost to cast means be wary of the blue player. I like it, but some don't

Nissa's Pilgrimage - Ramp, more Turn 3 ramp enables a more consistent Turn 4 Xenagos. While we would love a Turn 3 Xenagos, the choice is between consistency or early on advantage, I choose consistency, but to each their own.

Skyshroud Claim - Gets 2 forests (note some cards are both forests and mountains) and brings them in untapped, so it helps with tempo, something Xenagos decks greatly lack. Would add this over nissa's pilgramage, although I like both if you can fit them

War Room - Not needed, but a maybe

Ancient Tomb - Ramp

Blighted Woodland / Myriad Landscape - Ramp

Bonders' Enclave - Draw

Raging Ravine / Dread Statuary - Manlands are useful because you can target your draw spells on them if you don't have any other creatures

Cragcrown Pathway  Flip - Forest or mountain, you decide!

Turntimber, Serpentine Wood - Land when you need it, a potential creature when you don't. I like the flexibility for 3 life

Yavimaya Hollow - Most useful but most expensive, protecting your creature from removal is what this deck needs.

Creatures are mostly preference, you have most of the good ones. Here are some others I think would fit nicely...

Elder Gargaroth - Will almost always be draw, but I love the utility

Inferno Titan - Removal

Kogla, the Titan Ape - Removal + Utility, although you only have 2 humans, Eternal Witness might be worth including, but thats personal preference

I couldn't suggest more than what's allowed by tappedout, but let me know what you think of each suggestion. If you want ideas for cuts, lmk

Komamura Yavimaya Hollow keeps Jared's counters. Also, Toralf, God of Fury  Flip can kill whole tables with board wipes.

Romer Half of your lands should be swapped for snow-covered for field of the dead

Yavimaya Hollow > Temple of False

Beast Within > Mana dork > Lotus petal

Scapeshift - Field of the dead and other land ETB synergy + Tutor

Nylea's Intervention - Another land tutor to help you get eye of ugin or any utility land you may need

Profet93 on The Xenagos Stomp

+1 I love the low to the ground deck you have made. A couple of questions and comments....

  1. Why are you running seedborn muse? Even with your mana producers, I fail to see what activated abilities you are abusing here, as birthing pod is sorcerry speed.

  2. Is burgeoning worth it in a build with not a lot of draw and 36 lands? I would rather get another dork that can be used to sac to birthing pod, trigger guardian project, act as a blocker, albeit at the risk of removal.

  3. Guardian Project - Since they can kill the creature in response to the ETB so you don't draw, how has this played out for you? I can see given your dorks and lower curve this would be actually good in your build. Curious, how has it played?

  4. Soul's Fire > Rush of Blood - Same CMC, but direct removal and dealing the damage regardless of combat just seems like a strict upgrade to me. Plus, Rush of bloos is redundant, I think the replacement is solid

  5. Thoughts on Ancient Tomb and Yavimaya Hollow, or not too many nonbasics given your dorks?

  6. Court of Bounty - How has that been working for you? Seems subpar but idk

  7. IMO, terrastomper is subpar and Carnage Tyrant would be a better fit. Although I think Savage Ventmaw or Inferno Titan are even better. Ramp and removal are crucial. Nothing better than attacking with Ventaw and casting a draw spell to draw 8 without losing tempo. Inferno is nice to kill opposing dorks and combat tricks.

Without discussing creatures...

Ancient Tomb > Temple of false. Out of budget, not needed, but nice to have

Yavimaya Hollow - See above

Castle Garenbrig - Ramp

Dread Statuary - Manland used for drawspells

Raging Ravine - See above

Reliquary Tower - Utility

Skyshroud Claim - Ramp that provides tempo needed in Xenagos

Harmonize - Draw, not the best, not the worst. I like it personally

Green Sun's Zenith - Since many of your dragons are green, not needed but nice

If you listen to any suggestion of mine, this is it, hands down, most important card in a Xenagos deck.... Greater Good - It provides you with draw and a reward for when your big creatures inevitably get removed

Rancor - Nice but not needed, think with Selvala to add lots of mana, with a dork to get 6 power trample. Can even give to an opponent's creature for politics.

Beast Within - Removal

Berserk - Finisher with a huge beater, nice to use on opponent's creature/commanders as well. Never underestimate instant speed interaction (see above)

Deflecting Swat - Counter counterspells, redirect targetted removal, draw, extra turns, etc.... for free. Not needed but VERY nice to have. Bluffing interaction while tapped out!

Momentous Fall - Might not be the best, but has saved my ass countless times. You need a way to maintain card draw in Xenagos

Return of the Wildspeaker - See above

The Great Henge - Draw, ramp, lifegain for cheap

Gadianten on Elves of Rivendell

I love tribal decks and you seem to have a solid base for your elves here but there are a few recommendations I have that may prove helpful.

Your commander will be a VERY high target so I would run some protective measures to keep him around like Yavimaya Hollow and Asceticism as it adds some regeneration protection to your commander although some of the options are pricey.

Removal is always useful and a good option is Song of the Dryads being a cheaper option then Desert Twister that as a plus empowers Elvish Champion, forestwalk... no one ever seems to notice that or care about it until your elves get +6/+6.

Some additional mana increases are Nature's Will and Wirewood Channeler, lets face it Ezuri is a mana sink that needs LOTS of mana to start steamrolling the game properly.

I personally love Nissa Revane and Nissa's Chosen for the life gain effects and blocker alone, the ultimate is just a bonus. Another fun choice is Immaculate Magistrate, this card is great for making players hesitant to block or attack you and will often eat a removal spell that would have been better aimed at your commander. Funny uses include politicking with this card since the target does not have to be YOUR creatures, you have not lived untill you have seen a 10/11 Birds of Paradise terrorizing the enemy.

Bring doom to your foes by empowering your commander or unblocked attackers with elves like Wirewood Channeler, or any others that can add more then three mana, paired with Umbral Mantle or Sword of the Paruns. One thing worth mentioning is that Umbral Mantle is almost a backup commander empowering mana producers before the attack, most people unfamiliar with the card wont see this coming.

osiczym on What are Slivers?

3 months ago

Really surprised you don’t have any of cheap buffs slivers (Muscle Sliver or Predatory Sliver or Sinew Sliver). Which are usually core of Sliver decks, especially you have those colors. In my deck I have 4+4+4 and slivers grow quickly. Also Aether Vial works perfectly for sliver decks practically doubling the number of slivers entering the battlefield each round. Finally Sidewinder Sliver is perfect turn 1 drop. I also use Browbeat or Risk Factor if I would go out of cards, which is pretty often with that kind of deck.

The biggest issues in sliver decks is creature endurance. How do you deal with that (swipes can basically ruin your game)? I use Ward Sliver and Yavimaya Hollow, but it is still not enough. Mostly blue slivers give one.

And lastly - I am not convinced with Venom Sliver. If it will die before your slivers manage to deal 10 dmg all dmg dealt is for nothing.
