Deck Description

Everyone complaining about how Chainwhirler (and sometime Plague Mare) is making Saprolings unplayable. My question is often "Then, why not play Radiant Destiny?" to which the common response is "It's not in colour."

This is a first draft at making Selesnya Saprolings viable. It also makes one ready for Ravnica as Selesnya will likely have some form of token support and possibly more Saproling options.

I'm also considering Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants in Huatli's slot as his [-2] reanimates Shanna, Sisay's Legacy and Sporecrown Thallid, our biggest beat stick and a Lord. Also, those +1/+1 counters are nothing to sneeze at.

Tranquil Expanse is to be replaces by the Ravnica GW dual land, which hopefully will be Temple Garden.

How to Play

Play Saprolings and boost them with Lord / anthem effects.
Also use the fact that you (should) have lots of creatures to make Huatli and Shanna even better.
Beet face with the swarm while using some of the best removal in the format.

Sideboard is just generalised and can hopefully cover most of the problem things you may come across. A note on Plummet though, Angels is the main reason, but they're not the only flying threats.
