Quote from prism0 »Anyone test out progenitor mimic? Saw it on mtggoldfish and it seems pretty crazy considering it also copies the mana cost of its target. Hence double devotion.
Quote from Gm13p »Thanks for the input Curdbros!
Being a fan of Superfriends decks, I like your list alot. Interested to see how it fares, especially in aggro and burn matchups, as I see that you don't have any life gain.
Also, have you tested Ugin, the spirit dragon? The more I play, the more i see I want it in every matchup. Karn is fantastic too, but as we don't always aim for the "turn three seven mana" we don't want him as much as the Tron players. Ugin's ability to reset the board can make a comeback where no other card could. Be glad to hear your opinion.
Btw, as we discussed it earlier, Nature's claim has been overperforming so far. Having two in maindeck and never going back! Surviving a burn matchup by destroying my Ground was great.
Quote from prism0 »so how do we beat control? against decks with a ton of removal/boardwipes its hard to get anything going... then when something like genesis wave or primeval titan gets countered i'm not really sure how to answer. are we just supposed to play more conservatively and poke for little increments of damage?
Quote from prism0 »hey thanks for the response! how do you think the walker devotion deck would fare without the karns/ugin? unfortunately they're a bit out of my price range as i'm trying to find the most budget options for this deck. on that note, did cloudstone spike in price or has it always been that high? i could've sworn it was down to 4ish bucks when i was considering buying a set a while back.
also, have you tried out building around eidolon of blossoms? if so, how did you like it? I was thinking it would be good to maintain hand advantage because after i get boardwiped its usually hard to come back
Quote from gnuhouse »Hey everyonoe, remember me?
I've taken a bit of a turn in my decks lately, having Affinity, Jund, and a couple flavours of Grixis built. That beings said, mono-Green Devotion is near and dear to my heart. I have it mostly foiled, so I'm looking for what the consensus best build(s) are so I can finish it up.
Any help would be appreciated
Quote from prism0 »@curdbros I also checked out your primer on modern combo elves. Would you say that deck is, in general, superior to green devotion? Which would you recommend for a player that's newer to the game? And thanks for all the great info! Your primers are really a great introduction to some really interesting decks
