    Hello All! I've been In vited to a Type One tournament using only common cards. I've always loved big green Furries running around, since the first precon I ever baught was the Urva's Legacey deck: CRUSHER i thought it would be a good time to play with the roots that i started the game with! now I present to you...

    Stumpy(more commonly refered to as Stampy or Stompy)

    4x Spore Frog
    4x Pouncing Jaguar
    4x Llanowar Elves
    2x Heart Warden
    2x Elvish herder
    4x Wild Dogs

    4x Rancor
    4x Wild Might
    4x Giant Strength
    4x Seal of Strength
    3x Land Grant
    1x Harrow

    Let me know what you think. Even if it's,"Just play Counter" all comments and improvements are appriciated!

    Thanx, T.J.

    Type 1 tournament eh? I myself almost exclusively play type 2 and sealed, but I've thought about playing type 1.

    I'm not clear on all the rules for type 1, enlighten me please.

    Briar Shield and Rogue Elephant both would do a good job smashing your opponent's head in very quickly, and I think they are both commons. I'll get more for you later, it's just too late to think... ;)

    Shockingly enough, a friend of mine has a Stompy deck that's rather infamous for sheer power. He runs a very different mix from the norm, with far more pump spells than a standard Stompy deck. As a result, his deck plays more like a pure Burn deck than Stompy, running ~12 Lightning Bolts, which can of course be dangerous.

    He also has the honor of having the only Extended decks to feature only two casting costs - One mana, or "Alternate." :)

    I'll see if I can get him to post Captain Crunch, as he fondly refers to it...

    type 1 is far and away the easiest format to play, but also the most competative and hardest to excel at.

    instead of only being able to use the latest two blocks, you can use pretty much every card ever printed. to keep things balanced, there's a banned list (cards you can't, under any circumstances, use - i believe there's only three non-ante cards banned: tempest efreet, chaos orb, and falling star) and a restricted list (cards you can only have one copy of in your deck).

    the current banned/restricted lists for t1 can be found at http://www.wizards.com/dci/judge/resources/main.asp?x=judge/resources/sfr_type1

    harrow needs to go out, it's way too slow and won't work. play ghazban ogre (a common in chronicles) instead of wild dogs, you shouldn't need the cycling.

    if you're splashing red for giant strength, you might as well play kird ape (common in arabian nights) and lightning bolt (common in alpha-4th) too.

    also, consider grizzly bears or one of their many, many alternatives for a turn 2 drop.

    other than that, your deck looks pretty good.

    I have never played in a tourney but I know one thing though. My Goblins would stomp your stumps a new pie hole with their maces, and flails, and teeth, and finger nails and such! Uh huh thats what I thought!
  9. Turtlewax Joe CPA Hater of Train

    Sure........What ever.

    Wild Dogs is a Stay for the deck. Quick Damage doesn't effect the drawback and the 2 power for 1 mana is amazing.

    I expect to see a blue counter deck floating somewhere also

    I'll post a final listing in the next couple of days.........and it WILL be MONO-GREEN, i'm not going to splash anything.
  10. Gerode Becoming a Lurker Again

    What is Heart Warden doing there? Play a more aggressive creature.

    Decks like that wear out quickly, so you may want to experiment with Multani's Acolyte for some card advantage.

    I like olwen's deck more, particularly the Ridgebacks and the Elvish Lyrists. Try to get close to that, if possible. I'd find a way to fit in Wild Mights, though.
  11. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Elvish Archers are fun too.

    How about this?

    3x Rogue Elephant
    3x Stampede Driver
    4x Wild Dogs
    4x Pouncing Jaguar
    4x Elvish Archers
    4x Muscle Sliver
    4x River Boa
    2x Albino Troll

    4x Rancor
    4x Giant Growth
    4x Briar Shield
    4x Land Grant
    3x Concordant Crossroads

    13x Forest
    Rancor is a no-brainer. Giant Growth, ditto. Same with Briar Shield and Land Grant.
    Concordant Crossroads is roughly equal to Fires, in that it accelerates all of your creatures by a turn.

    Rogue Elephant and Wild Dogs have power higher than their casting cost. That's a Good Thing.
    Muscle Sliver can be enormous if you get lucky.
    Stampede Driver's +1/+1 and trample to all creatures can push those last few points through.
    Elvish Archers and River Boa are 2/1s, but both have good special abilities.
    Pouncing Jaguar and Albino Troll are both good for their CC, but you need to remember that they'll eat a turn paying echo, so take it easy on them.

    Elvish Archers are rare though :(
  13. Turtlewax Joe CPA Hater of Train

    4x River Boa
    4x Wild Dogs

    4x Rougue Elephant

    4x Rancor
    4x Briar Shield
    4x Giant Growth
    4x Wild Might
    4x Land Grant

    16x Forest

    this was really fast listing....sop help is still apreciated

    tj
  14. Gerode Becoming a Lurker Again

    I'd lose 2 or 3 Forests and 2 Spore Frogs, and replace them with a few Elvish Lyrists and 2-mana creatures.
  15. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Why Spore Frog? Spore Frog is a staller. You don't want to stall. You're going for blinding speed!
  16. Hellion New Member

    My take on STOMPY!

    mono green that's it...

    ;)

    Creatures (24):
    4 Llanowar Elves
    4 Rogue Elephant
    4 Fyndhorn Elves
    4 Wild Dogs (cycle is an extra you would't mind having yeah?)
    4 Skyshroud Ridgeback
    4 Scryb Sprite

    Spells (18):
    4 Rancor
    4 Seal of Strength
    4 Giant Growth
    4 Briar Shield
    2 Hurricane (they are uncommon in 5th ed and Ice age)

    Lands (18):
    18 Forest

    You might want to add Mishra Factorys or Treetop Villages...they uncommons too.

    ;) have fun
  17. Turtlewax Joe CPA Hater of Train

    What is this uncommon thing you speak of? I said common not uncommon. This is very clear. COMMON only.
  18. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    Ghazban Ogre is exactly the same as Wild Dogs, except that it's 2/2 and doesn't have cycling. You should probably use both. Use them instead of Spore Frog.
    I really think you should consider Seal of Strength. 16 Forests is probably enough without Land Grant, so I'll take two out and put in two Seals of Strength.

    I'll make suggested alterations directly to the last deck you posted:

    4x Ghazbàn Ogre
    4x Rogue Elephant
    4x Pouncing Jaguar
    4x Wild Dogs
    4x Skyshroud Ridgeback
    4x River Boa
    4x Giant Growth
    4x Briar Shield
    4x Rancor
    2x Seal of Strength
    4x Land Grant
    4x Wild Might
    14x Forest
  19. Turtlewax Joe CPA Hater of Train

    4x Ghazbàn Ogre
    4x Rogue Elephant
    4x Pouncing Jaguar
    4x Wild Dogs
    4x Skyshroud Ridgeback
    4x River Boa
    4x Grizzly Bear

    2x Llanowar Elves

    4x Giant Growth
    4x Briar Shield
    4x Rancor
    4x Seal of Strength

    4x Land Grant

    10x Forest


    Look Good?

    GRIZZLY BEAR?!?!?!

    This is Stompy! Muscle Sliver is better! LOTS of things are better than THAT.
