Bane of Progress Discussion

insanedachshund Terastodon is strictly better than Meteor Golem , that sounds like a great substitution.

Here are some suggested cuts

SynergyBuild on Nissa's Land Power

I have a feeling this list would want a Fierce Empath to grab a Thunderfoot Baloth or Bane of Progress , or one of the other 7 targets like Archetype of Endurance , and it is a really cheap card too!

Meurth on Mana flooding is a good thing?!?!

3 weeks ago

I'd say cut Bane of Progress since you don't want to blow up your own exploration and burgeoning and stuff

Bababad on Kruphix and the Value Town Toolbox (Biggle Wiggle)

testing Runic Armasaur over Bane of Progress for now because:

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

Grenzo, Dungeon Warden

and Marath, Will of the Wild

are more and more prominent in my playgroup, let alone ramp dorks/sac dorks/land destruction packages, and Kessig Wolf Run abuse that could net me card advantage on top of a good early game body. Drawing off of a fetch feels pretty alright as well :)

"Other" Section Observations:

Burgeoning good card, but you have alot of multiple lands per turn cards

Constant Mists solid

Crop Rotation Unnecessary imo

Life / Death Can only use one spell, can prob find something that is more impactful to the deck

Sensei's Divining Top Yes

Sylvan Advocate Good because it's a 2/3 for 2 mana, but only adds significant value with commitment to land creatures

Sylvan Library V good card, excels if you maintain lifegain sub-strategy

Titania, Protector of Argoth Only good if you commit to the graveyard recall sub-strategy

Traverse the Outlands fantastic, can this be turned into a win condition?

Volcanic Offering fun af, but probably better options for the card slot

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Print out Business Cards saying "GG" for when you play this

Wildfire Abso-freakin-lutely

Zuran Orb A must have if you commit to graveyard recall + lifegain sub strategies

Additional Observations:

World Breaker kinda sucks for 7 mana

Bane of Progress a conditional 6 drop is risky; amazing sideboard card in our meta

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip her -2 will trigger the legendary rule

Exsanguinate Love it.

Final Comment:

Your non-creature game is strong, but your damage output is weak and is currently the biggest flaw facing your deck. Your best bet imo is to either rip out creatures and synergize removal + damage or add in a few more big trample creatures. I think your comparative advantage lies in creatures: you'll consistently have an ungodly mana pool to take advantage of them, and you're already relying on creatures for this concept to work.

Some good creatures for this deck:

Liege of the Tangle

Oran-Rief Hydra

Charnelhoard Wurm

Blightsteel Colossus

Ghalta, Primal Hunger

Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer

Phantom Nishoba

Stonehoof Chieftain

Worldspine Wurm

Pikobyte on Muldrotha- Help Needed!

1 month ago

Elvish piper is a card I love in my Xenagos deck. For my Muldrotha it doesn’t fit well. I tutor up LED as soon as possible and keep discarding my hand. As soon as you build your boardstate, the only thing you have to fear is stuff like Cyclonic Rift . You can counter that with Glen elendra, but stuff like Bane of Progress might still be a problem. To prevent this I usually go for Mindslicer and sac it. That takes your opponents chance to deal with your board. Mindslicer after your own rift is often a scoop because it leaves your opponents with just lands and in topdeck mode. For this reason I even thought about cutting Survival of the Fittest but this card is still amazing if you draw a single creature and spend 5 mana to put some tools into your 2nd hand.

Edit: yeah, I know this feeling. I’m playing and collecting since 94 and still love to try new stuff. After testing with a proxies I bought LED for this deck. It’s like a black lotus here each turn, twice a turn if you saved it the turn before :-)

I'm looking forward to seeing it! I love Torpor Orb for the fact that what's often the removal for it is Acidic Slime , Reclamation Sage , Bane of Progress , Knight of Autumn , etc. You see your opponents face light up for a moment after drawing as they've found their answer... Only to realize it wont work.

@ MCJennings The Anvil of Bogardan looks very sweet to me and I think that it might just be better than Howling Mine indeed. Very often I'm hording valuable enchantments and artifacts in my graveyard to cast an Open the Vaults , most of the time resulting in a powerfull bordstate unexpected by my opponents. The Anvil should be able helping me by filling my graveyard over the time with valuable goods... I'm making some changes to my Zedruudeck at the moment, trying out some new things to spice it up. So I did just cut the Howling Mine for Torpor Orb (SCREW YOU, Bane of Progress !!) . I'm going through some testing right now and I will update the deck sometime next week here on tappedout :)
