Barren Moor Discussion

Nimble Mongoose is a great body for strategies such as Delirium.

Ash Barrens may be more useful in Pauper than Evolving Wilds to enable Delirium. The jury's still out, but it wouldn't hurt to test. Otherwise, cycling lands I believe are a must in graveyard-based Pauper decks (Barren Moor, Tranquil Thicket).

Borderland Explorer has good power and a relevant effect.

Chromatic Star is likely better than Terrarion.

Deepcavern Imp is a good flying curve-topper.

Great deck! but why Polluted Mire and not Barren Moor? And... why Liliana's Shade? It looks like a sub-optimal way to get a land. Also, have you considered Liliana Vess? It's the walker-tutor :D

Dakmor Salvage lets you accomplish silly things with your commander. Sacrifice it to pay for Gitrog's upkeep cost, then in response to the draw trigger dredge it to return it to your hand and fill up your graveyard.

Gitrog allows Tranquil Thicket and Barren Moor to cycle for double the amount of cards.

Worm Harvest seems like a nasty way to slowly outvalue your opponents. Combos by repeatedly returning Dakmor Salvage to your hand.

You might actually want to run Harrow over Kodama's Reach due to obvious synergy.

I would make a minor change:

[MAINBOARD INTO SB]: -1 Corrupt / +1 Pestilence[MAINBOARD ADJUSTMENT]: -4 Swamp / +1 Barren Moor / +2 Gurmag Angler / +1 Cuombajj Witches

Advise: 20 is a great number for a mono colored deck. Interesting Addition: I like the card draw of Barren Moor.Advise: 4 of on Gurmag Angler seems to be the format standard for Pauper.

[SB]: +1 Corrupt / -1 Pestilence

Best of luck on the tournament.

I've looked this over, here are the thoughts that occur to me:

  • very light on removal

  • light on card draw

  • heavy on artifacts

  • not a lot of ways to respond

  • not a lot of beefy endgame creature threats

Here are some cards I would consider adding, with priority going to removal:







Here are a few of the things I"m not sure are giving you the best value for the card slot:

I'd also cut lands to no more than 40, possibly 39.

The manabase leans heavy Black because the Black is the most important color. I have 3 cards that require and another 15 that require . The only thing that requires a double color of anybody else is Eternal Witness. I am currently 65 black symbols vs. 13 , 11 & 7 . I then have to skew slightly towards Red to support Tymaret, the Murder King which comes up a lot.

The Tainted cycle is worth considering. The Panoramas are too slow.

I am running two fetchlands (eventually adding a 3rd) which grabs the W Grave as well as any color I'm missing. The life can be played around by fetching end-of-turn on my opponent or grabbing a tango or a basic. Life from the Loam is a lot of fun.

My manabase is pretty solid right now- the only things I want to add are Cabal Coffers for Crypt of Agadeem (I have 4 Cabal's in different decks-not in a rush to scoop another), Shizo, Death's Storehouse, Barren Moor (Life from the Loam card advantage), Mutavault (even though it's risky) and maybe Jund/Grixis Trilands (Khans predecessors).

Vampiric Tutor might be great in addition to the Entomb. Cascade into whatever I want!

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant needs to be built around to get the most out of him, but Sidisi, Undead Vizier is exactly what I wanted! Relentless Dead was merely overlooked. I will get one eventually.

Grave Betrayal is fun, but only in temporarily until I get to use it a few times. Rhystic Study probably should get thrown in. Exploration is a maybe. Preordain has been added and removed and added and removed.

Both of those Liliana's will make it in.

The deck needs a Lightning Greaves or maybe just an Anger.

Eventually I need an Ancestral Vision.

Vesuva to copy coffers and Expedition Map to help you find either coffers, thespian's stage, vesuva or urborg.

Command Tower is only helpful for multicolored decks. You should use a swamp instead to fuel coffers. Barren Moor (well) sucks unless it's late game. Lands that enter tapped are a huge loss of tempo.

Necropotence for card draw. Reliquary Tower so you don't have to discard into exile.

SpiritKing, I can't really add the Barren Moors in, the land needs to be really consistent and so I can't really justify it because of how many different land I already run... Just kidding, it should totally be in there! I've popped four in, nice suggestion.
