I've played the similar deck with my friends. I found that Trinisphere is much better than Thorn of Ametist.
Have you tested your deck against Miracles?

Aug 22, 2012Posted in: Aggro & TempoQuote from dwchangYour thoughts aren't unusual. I tried Goblin Guide once and hated it.
I echo these thoughts on maxing out Chain Lightning before Helix and looking into maxing out the Lavamancers (maybe decrease to 3 Pridemages). If you take out the Guides, I'd suggest looking into Scavenging Oozes.
Lastly, I agree that the side is pretty weak against combo (Storm, Sneak/Show, and Reanimator), but if you don't expect it don't waste the sideboard space.
I have tested Guides again and was disapointed again. It usually deals 4 damage before it will be removed or get blocked, but I hate his downside, does not like to give my opponent extra lands. I think I should cut him and use this space for extra Lavamancers.
I have only one Ozze, think about using GSZ toolbox for silver bullets (Ozze, Teeg, Vexing Shusher). What do you think?
I dont know about combo decks in my meta, but can meet someone. Can you suggest sideboard strategy against combo?

Apr 25, 2012Here is my deck update. NO Elves tuned tu deal with my local meta. My meta has jast a few players And it consists of homebrew control and affinity decks. Here is some explanations.Posted in: Developing (Legacy)
The elves pack is pretty common: mana dorks, Priest of Titania, Sylvan Messenger and lords. The list has a single Quirion Ranger as GSZ target. I do not play Elvish Champion, because my deck is only one green deck in meta and needed to cut something for meta call cards. NO/GSZ pack has Progenitus, Terastodon and Ezuri, Renegade Leader, no need to explain. I cannot deicide who is better Viridian Shaman or Viridian Zealot, so I an trying to play shaman. Tajuru Preserver save me from Pox, Smokestack and other annoying things my opponents play very often, but I want to replace it with Sigarda, Host of Herons after it will be released. MD has Krosan Grip, because all my opponents play affinity or artifact heavy control decks.
Now I have one big problem. The scenario is... My opponent plays Chalice of the Void on T1 and start counter all my manadorks and GSZ. T2 he put Trinisphere on the board. And next turn Smokestack. If he starts and has the goldfish I cannot do anything. Any suggestions?
Mar 11, 2012Posted in: Developing (Legacy)Quote from ToyhammeredOk, lets start from the top. Dryad with 17x Forests is good. After that is where all hell breaks loose. Why are you running 4 Wirewood, they are useless and serve no purpose. 2 quirions and 2 Ezuri, you have 4 gsz, so just run singlets of each of those and pull them with gsz if you really need them. You are running a Progen without Natural order... therefore it is useless. It is not worth paying 11 to summon a Progen with gsz. If you really want Progen that much then think about getting 2 Natural Orders for a start. Ill deal with pricing and all that **** after and make you a mock deck. Get rid of Natures Resurgence, like what is actually the point of them they do absolutely nothing but waist 3 spots. Silhana Ledgewalker, why pay 2 for something so useless? Who cares if it cant be blocked expect by air and its hexproof pretty much. NO aggro/elf decks are meant to be very fast paced decks, what you have running here really does nothing. Now to fix your deck. Read the primer that Naz wrote and look at the 52 core cards selection that he has done. Copy that card for card, and cause most people cant afford cradles/wastelands just replace those with forests. Just run 17x forest 1x Dryad and you will be fine. Also if you cant get Natural Order cut Progen and Terastedon from his list. The cards that you need to be running because this is more budget oriented is
1x Fauma Shaman (which you have)
4x Elvish Champion
4x Sylvan Messengers
2-4x Wrens Runs Vanaquisher (great filler)
1x Emrakul, the Aeons Torn (goes great with Fauma)
After reading this primer also check out from pages like 250-255 and look for my posts in specific, i cant remember where but I do show you a deck that I use in a tournament. Any questions just post comments on here
Thanks! I will try to fix my deck and tell you results. One question: why you seggest to cut Progenitus, I put him using GSZ and it costs less mana than Emrakul.
P.S. Unfortunately I do not have Natural Order.
Mar 10, 2012Here is the deck I test. I have not been on tournament yet, just playing with my friends. I my "friendly" meta I have few big problems:Posted in: Developing (Legacy)
- Mono black or BR aggro/control deck kills all my 1cc dorks with tons of spot removal, this hurts the tempo a lot. I loose all advantage, he can hold me up to 4 turns and than I will loose.
- Curse of Death's Hold locks my board if I have no 3 forests to put the lord.
- Board sweepers like Damnation or Black Sun's Zenith
How to deal with such deck hate?
Jul 25, 2011Posted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from Orpheoscuts
signets and ingot(you are playing green, i would just use green ramp)
chorus of the conclave(seems super slow)
the cycling lands(i dont think its worth it in 3 color decks without life from the loam)
wood elves/farhaven elf
maybe some more of the CIPT two colored lands
sun titan and primeval titan
reveillark and karmic guide and eternal witness
- Signets and Ingot were both in precon and I deicide to stay with them for stabilization. Thanks for pointing to prefer green ramp.
- You right, Chorus of the Conclave is slow, I will cut it.
- Birgs... it was once on my battle field and wasn't help me much. Cut off.
- And I will fix lands, thanks.

Creakwood Liege and Earthcraft will be mine tomorrow
Does Avenger of Zendikar works fine?
Jul 25, 2011Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Yap, this is a good card. I'm looking for it in my local tradelists.
Jul 25, 2011I love EDH and Ghave, Guru of Spores. I bought Counterpunch precon and now I'm working on it. I like saproling tokens theme and combos around it with Doubling Season, Ashnod's Altar and other token triggered enchantments.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
I have filled my deck with cards which works with Ghave. Also I have included Ranger of Eos because there are good targets for him.
Can you suggest something? Do you see deck has something useless or extremely needs any other cards?
And help me with mana base, please. Is is solid? Should I use more fetch lands?
