Ash Barrens Discussion

Srcsqwrn on Exhuming End

I have to start by saying; This is a brew. It feels competitive to me, but I have not played any leagues with it. The most I do is the Tournament Practice rooms on MTGO.

Also, that's not a dumb question. Many people ask why Ash Barrens over Evolving Wilds just in general. To answer your question; I have it in the deck because; 1. Cycling is very important to the deck. Horror of the Broken Lands needs the cycling, and the land pumps him. 2. The deck is 3 colours, but getting the Exhume T2 or T3 is important. Evolving Wilds can not tap for mana T2 or T3. So if I can put it down as colourless mana, it's situationally better. If you can Cycle Horror of the Broken Lands T1 and T2 Exhume it to the battlefield, it's a big swing. The better creature is often Greater Sandwurm due to being an unblockable 7/7 T3 if you can cycle T2 and Exhume T3. 3. I prefer Ash Barrens over Evolving Wilds, just due to being able to make the land drop and immediately be able to use it the same turn, if needed.

I have made a couple changes to the deck. I will update everything so you can see what the deck is like now. not much has changed. I find that this is one of my most competitive decks to date, and is very fun and consistent. If you try this deck I think you will have fun, but it takes a lot of practice.

I'll post again once I'm finished the full update, as right now I might only edit the list and a bit of description.

For any 3 color deck in Pauper i'd recommend a playset of Ash Barrens, it may be $35 for a full four, but makes for amazing color fixing.

Quick suggestion here, 4 copies of Ash Barrens, it is an amazing fixer for mana in pauper.

Maybe we could add Ash Barrens ?

Seems like Evolving Wilds or Ash Barrens would be a good fit, especially if you want to shuffle away cards for Delver of Secrets  Flip. Imo Brainstorm may be better than Thought Scour with the above fetchlands, as well.

Either way, looks like a fun format and a spicy brew!

How is your mana? If you can afford it, Ash Barrens is pretty good at fetching lands. Later in the game, it can give you a colorless mana without entering the battlefield tapped.

First off, while I have very few sources as to the gender of Sasaya, I'm pretty sure she's female.

Second, I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to suggest. Add Scapeshift and Nostalgic Dreams? I mean, I tried Dreams once upon a time, but there are not that many cards you want to get back from the graveyard, and discarding as a cost is a real cost. Even the most forgiving counterspell, say Arcane Denial or Remand, still puts you incredibly down on cards and, while there are comeback mechanisms (Sylvan Library and Life from the Loam, for example), it can still be difficult to come back once you're down.

In terms of utility lands, there's not a lot of non-Forest lands that this deck wants. Mikokoro, Center of the Sea is the only major one I can think of, maybe Ash Barrens or Dark Depths if I was feeling particularly spicy, but other than those I'm not even close to sure what you are suggesting.
