I am the Regent of Gaea

Regent of Gaea

Gaea's Avenger - Pete Venters


I'm taking the new deck tags for a spin, so I'll be moving all of my decks from "over there" to their new rightful home. I'll start with the Regent of Gaea deck. When I first built this deck I considered all the Gaea cards:

The Gaea Pool
Child of Gaea
[card]Gaea's Anthem[/card]
[card]Gaea's Avenger[/card]
[card]Gaea's Balance[/card]
[card]Gaea's Blessing[/card]
[card]Gaea's Bounty[/card]
[card]Gaea's Cradle[/card]
[card]Gaea's Embrace[/
card]
[card]Gaea's Herald[/card]
[card]Gaea's Liege[/card]
[card]Gaea's Might[/card]
[card]Gaea's Skyfolk[/card]
[card]Gaea's Touch[/card]
[card]Gaea's Revenge[/card]

The following cards didn't make the cut, for not making any sense in Mono-[MANA]G[/MANA]:
[card]Gaea's Balance[/card]
[card]Gaea's Might[/card]
[card]Gaea's Skyfolk[/card]

That leaves us with:

Deck's Skeleton
[DECK=Skeleton]Land:
1 Gaea's Cradle (Its price and being legendary make this a 1 of)

Creatures:
1 Child of Gaea (See my avatar if you have questions)
1 Gaea's Herald (Great two drop that protects the fatties)
1 Gaea's Liege (Quite disrupting, and good defensively)
1 Gaea's Revenge (Spoiler, spoiler)

Enchantments:
n1 Gaea's Anthem (Creature pump? Sign me in)
1 Gaea's Touch (Ramp is always good in green)
1 Gaea's Embrace (I think some elves might like this)

Other spells:
1 Gaea's Blessing (Anti Mill? Sure)
1 Gaea's Bounty (With Gaea's Touch out this > Harrow)
[/DECK]


Originally, it ran Llanowar Elves and Joraga Treespeaker. Terra Stomper were used instead of [card]Gaea's Revenge[/card] before the M11 release. I removed the mana elves, since I usually get almost every forest into play. I used the slots for Sakura-Tribe Elders, Terra Stompers, since I liked them when they were in place of [card]Gaea's Revenge[/card], and I also added Mr. Omnath. I threw in Deserted Temple for repeated Cradle action,
and I went up to 2 [card]Gaea's Embrace[/card] since it works fine with Revenge and gives it the lacking trample. During a ME4 draft I got my first [card]Gaea's Avenger[/card] and just threw it in there. :p

[DECK=Regent of Gaea]Creatures
4 Sakura-Tribe Elder
4 Child of Gaea
3 Gaea's Herald
2 Gaea's Liege
2 Gaea's Revenge
2 Terra Stomper
1 Gaea's Avenger
1 Omnath, Locus of Mana

Ramp
4 Gaea's Touch
4 Gaea's Bounty
3 Expedition Map
2 Search for Tomorrow

Other Spells
1 Gaea's Anthem
2 Gaea's Embrace
2 Gaea's Blessing
4 Harmonize

Land
17 Forest
2 Deserted Temple
1 Gaea's Cradle
[/DECK]

Suggestions?

Deck tags seem to be working just fine :D
I'd probably bump the Expedition Map to 4 to have a higher chance of getting that Cradle online early.
