Quote from Dzung »Hi guys i am quite new to this thread, i have just recently started to play devoted druid combo, since my jeskai-delver felt weak. The deck is really awesome and i really enjoy it. I am sorry if it was already asked but my question is, why is Ranger-Captain of Eos more played than duskwatch recruiter? Thank you for your answer.

Quote from Moneymakermich »Up to now I'm very impressed with stoneforge mystic in the deck. It's way too good to put in the sideboard as I thought previously, as it brings a lot of consistency and extra 'must kill' creatures. I was hesitating between a postmortem lunge build and a stoneforge build but after some testing it seems very clear to me now that stoneforge is superior.
Anyway I don't like the viridian longbow from the link I've given, I find it too situational, even if it's combo with druid (but I haven't tested it). I play now 1 batterskull (that I search for 99% of the time) and 1 lightning greaves.
Any feedback from persons having tested stoneforge since the unban?
Quote from Moneymakermich »I've played some modern games this WE at magic fest Ghent and I'd like to share my lessons learned.
The most important is probably that I realized (more) the power of stony silence in the meta. It's great against whirza which is a very problematic match-up. Against Tron it acts preventively against lattice, which I didn't realize previously (lattice and stony into play means no mana for anyone. So if you have a creature and Tron player doesn't, he looses). Not mentioning ravager decks. I'll up to 4 in sideboard.
Stoneforge package confirmed its power. I've tested viridian longbow and indeed I won't take it out anymore. Still not convinced by lightning greaves. Some players use also sword of light and shadow, I haven't tried yet but will very soon because it looks strong.
Infinite life via kitchen finks rarely happened and in the rare cases it did, it wasn't relevant. But I won 2 games thanks to infinite-big carrion feeder, so I'm still not sure whether to drop the finks package or not. I'd like to keep it with 2 finks.
1 eternal witness main was totally useless. So was 1 knight of autumn main (well, this one is never really useless, but it was a weak play).
After sideboard, having multiple knights of autumn is really not sufficient for the whirza matchup.
1 Gavony township main was useful multiple times. I'd like to make room for a 2nd one.
1 scavenging ooze main was very often great, and I've tutored it multiple times. I'll never drop it ;-)
Burrenton was good because blocker against burn and prevents anger of the gods against valakut.
My sideboard against UW control is 1 Vivien champion of the wild and 2 sin collector. It could certainly be better but I don't have a lot of inspiration about other options.
I wasn't always happy when having Shalai in hand, not sure if it belongs to maindeck or sideboard. I currently play 1 main.
Any feedback is welcome
Quote from Arkaedrian »Seems there's a major disconnect between this Forum and MTG Goldfish. Everyone here seems to be on Devoted Stoneblade lately, whereas on MTGgoldfish with lists putting up real results, it seems people aren't even touching Stoneforge mystic. What's up with that?
If we go by MTGgoldfish numbers, the old school version of this deck with Coco and Chord is about tied with the newer all-in version with Evolution and Lunge.
