Nice deck! That sounds wierd...

Anyway, I'm not a big fan of Rootgrapple. Just too expensive for the effect. I would prefer to see more creatures in its place. You might consider Wickerbough Elder in its place. Some of my favorite Treefolk might be a consideration as well... Sapling of Colfenor, Cradle Guard, Weatherseed Treefolk (stupid good), or Woodfall Primus (kind of expensive, but amazing). but overall this is a really well thought out build.

Rootgrapple Buy is great in this build! since it's a treefolk, it get cheapened by bosk, played with crown-leaf, and fetchted by harbingers (like Crib Swap Buy and Reach of Branches Buy).

i had originally run weatherseed and primus, but i cut them becuz they weren't synergetic. since this is basically doran rock the weatherseeds were no better than 3/3's. the {G}{G}{G} in the casting hurt too. i replaced them with Unstoppable Ash Buy and reach since they work better with doran. the primus was too expensive and i didn't really need more big creatures. i ended up cutting them for Vindicate Buy- which has no internal synergy, but was easy.

thanx for the rate.

yeah, if you can produce B/W then Vindicate is always good!

I really like this deck but why not use Nameless Inversion Buy over Crib Swap Buy?

That is the only suggestion I can think of. Great Deck!

not a lot of treefolk decks out there and this is one of the best.

don't remove crib swap, it's awesome. but definitely fit in one nameless inversion since you can fetch it with harbinger when you need it. maybe 1 chameleon colossus too for that same purpose because it's so so good against some decks, and it comes in handy quite often while taking advantage of all treefolk tribal synergy. i'd also recommend Green Sun's Zenith Buy in there with just one dryad arbor when you need acceleration or a specific treefolk.

after playing with this deck again, i have seen the need for 1-2 inversions. i just don't kno wut to cut.

mana needs r easy. lore/harbinger fetches any land in the deck. the arbor might actually fit since it's a forest...

I do like the build of the deck. I have a deck similar to this, but I use a few of the {B} treefolk as well. If you do like the way they might interact, these are the treefolk I use, in addition to some that you have:
Fendeep Summoner Buy: while not epic, it can provide blockers in tight situations.
Everbark Shaman Buy: works really well with Reach of Branches Buy, allowing for more land pull and use of dead creatures.
Leaf-Crowned Elder Buy: since you're only running Treefolk, this should be main decked. Free casting bigger treefolk is never a bad thing.

As is, your build is awesome. It would be a wicked deck to go up against.

Please rate my Graveyard Shenanigans deck. Thanks

I would add in a Farseek Buy or another Nature's Lore for the acceleration.

The WoG and Armageddon are really dependent on your Timber Protector, which you only run 3 of. Seeing how Armageddon is really costly due to your high curve, I wouldn't run more than 1.

Crib swap is a very good card in this deck that I totally forgot about. Good choice.

Abrupt Decay Buy for early Enchant/Artifact removal. Your curve is too high to run Rootgrapple effectively. Abrupt Decay also removes creatures. You can also consider Maelstrom Pulse Buy which has its benefits over Vindicate due to the fact you don't have creatures that other decks run and that it's really good against tokens from elspeth, knight errant or Lingering Souls Buy; also great against other Tribal decks. Of course this means you need to change your mana base but it won't be as bad with the additional Nature's Lore Buy.

And of course, down to 60 cards.

Comments/Rate on my TA or Stoneblade is appreciated.

rootgraple kills planeswalkers and can be fetched when needed (and then played for free with crown leaf).
