Verdant Succession

Constructed: 3
Limited: 3
Current Price:


First, I'd like to start off today by wishing my and Scott's nephew, A.J. Ramirez, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  Kavus rule, dude!! *ahem*

Now on to the review.  Verdant Succession = Combo fun. Bill and Crimson explain the combos already, so I'll leave it at that.

In limited, almost worthless as you just don't tend to have doubles.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 4
Limited: 1

Judge Bill

Nantuko Husk's best friend these days. In a Oversold Cemetery deck, you can use the green creatures to power up the Husk, and then get more to fill your graveyard for the Cemetery. Another combo that has been done, and probably won't be seen again outside of that deck.
In limited, you have too many one-ofs for this to be useful.
Constructed: 2
Limited: 1

Verdant Succession
Pretends to help the beatdown decks against removal,  but any deck you put
it in will quickly become a combo deck instead.  Good at what it does
constructed - 3.5
limited - 3.4


Verdant Succession came out of the deck I've used for a while, Elvish
Succession. This is a BG deck that is capable, on turn 4 of giving you
infinite mana of any colors, infinite life, infinite card drawing, infinitly
big creatures, infinite 1/1 insects, infinite 2/2 bears, and infinite direct
damage. An example of one of the combos is having a Verdant Succession,
Nantuko Husk, and a Elvish Soultiller in play. You can just sacrifice the
soultiller to the husk, then shuffle the Elvish Soultiller back into your
library with his ability, then you can take it right out again with the
succession, allowing an infinitly large Nantuko Husk, Carrion Feeder, or
Fallen Angel. Then, you can just cast a Caller of the Claw to get infinite
2/2 bears, and if there was a Wirewood Hivemaster in play, you were given a
1/1 insect for each time the Elvish Soultiller was put back into play.

This deck is'nt quite tournament quality, so it is extremely fun in casual.
(for you, not great for most opponents) The Verdant Succession is'nt
required to have in play, although it is nice. All the cards in the deck
work well with every other card.

Verdant Succession
Casual Rating: 4.1
