Barren Moor Discussion

hoardofnotions on Meren's Grave Shenanigans

Polluted Mire and Slippery Karst could come out for Barren Moor and Tranquil Thicket

Ghoulcaller's Bell for Mesmeric Orb uber mill!

Gravecrawler for Reassembling Skeleton or Bloodghast you could even have a combo with Perilous Forays

Viridian Emissary- not strong enough? maybe Satyr Wayfinder

Zulaport Cutthroat- Blood Artist if you're playing in a multiplayer format there will be more creatures dying then just your own, therefore i think blood artist is better

upgrade Murder to Hero's Downfall

upgrade Rise from the Grave to Zombify, or remove entirely

Corpse Connoisseur is great!

Champion of Stray Souls have you thought this card is too slow

Scourge of Nel Toth is this card too slow

Verdant Force good enough?

if you're trying to combo, maybe Tooth and Nail.

also if you're running Living Death maybe run more graveyard hate, Agent of Erebos and Scavenging Ooze

First things first, I would lower your land count to 35. You shouldn't need much more than that due to being Mono, and Black gets a lot of good ramp cards. Barren Moor and Myriad Landscape should be removed for sure. I would say Crypt of Agadeem needs testing. Personally I find it to be too slow.

Is it within your budget to get Snow-Covered Swamp with Extraplanar Lens?

Under your Artifacts, I would personally cut Charcoal Diamond due to it being a fairly weak mana rock. My suggestion would be Mana Crypt but you don't have to replace it. Coat of Arms is great but I have never found a need for it. It is something I cut. It is great when I have a lot, but if I have a lot, I should already be winning. This is what we call "Win More" but it could also hurt you. Consulate Dreadnought is an easy cut. You would usually rather attack with the Zombies. Door of Destinies is another card I would cut. It's only getting counters when you cast spells, while Gisa is usually swarming with tokens. Door of Destinies is a personal choice, and the best card I just suggested to be cut.

As you want more mana ramp, especially due to my cut of Charcoal Diamond, get a Black Market.

I don't like Graf Harvest, you already have Zombie Master, I would also include Filth. Unblockable is better than still being able to be blocked.

I just realized, you also need an Expedition Map. It can find, Cabal Coffers (95% of the time this is what you get), Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, or Reliquary Tower. Whatever you need at the time.

Hissing Miasma is okay, I think Koskun Falls is better. I don't personally run either, but again that's personal choice.

I'll get to the Sorceries and Creatures later. Those two with Instants are all personal choices.

I'm not sure how much I've helped with cuts so far as I've made a few suggestions. We will figure this out.

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.
