Bayou Discussion

RylandL on Ghave Ad Nauseam/Earthcraft

1 day ago

so Mindcensor was definitely supposed to be in the list. I updated that, thank you.

Ouphe DOES stop our lines with the altars, however generally you'd play it to slow down faster decks and their mana rocks/ win conditions. And on our own combo turns, we would simply sacrifice the ouphe to Ghave before we go off.

Three Visits is to find our basic forests for Earthcraft , because it is the core of the deck. But it can also fetch Savannah or Bayou for mana fixing. And in general, lands are much safer than playing more dorks. We already run the all the best dorks we can in Abzan. Force is good, and always considered. I swap it out sometimes.

Toxic Deluge is very tempo negative for us, as we generally want to save our dorks and utility creatures. I've used it before, after casting Ghave, and it was okay. I would have rathered had another tutor or card advantage.

For me, it is kinda like LordBlackblade says, it is the atmosphere. We meet once a week at a bar, play a few hours with some drinks and just have fun. Some just have decks that are build of stuff they have around or got from people and some have really expensive stuff with a playset Bayou or whatever that costs hundrets and we KNOW if he plays those decks that we will probably lose but we take it with a smile and have fun.

That's a fair point. Also outside of the Tower I pretty much have the same manabase and was wondering what would you take out for a Bayou ? My LGS recently got one in and I bought it and I was thinking that taking out a forest for it would be a good idea.

Something tells me Daedalus19876 wont be dropping $630 for an Imperial Seal . That kinda cash would be better spent on a Bayou . Also removing more and more -1/-1 counter cards for good stuff just doesn't sound that great. Fume Spitter isn't some massive all star but it does kill mana dorks and other problematic 1 toughness creatures while making you snakes and insects.

Volrath's Stronghold sounds neat though. Would definitely be interested about input on that although since they're similar dropping $45 to replace Beacon might be a bit meh especially when Phyrexian Reclamation is already in the deck.

Some good lands include Overgrown Tomb , Tainted Wood , and Twilight Mire . And if you got the $$$ Bayou . Other than that I really like the deck.

Mortlocke on The Song of Phyresis

Poly_raptor, thank you for the awesome card suggestion - I had no idea Caves of Koilos had so much story behind it. I actually remember opening this card with the old border back in high school. That foil would run me about $20 :( Including it would be more of a question of Flavor vs. Function. It'd have to jockey for Godless Shrine 's slot. For now, i'm going to just keep it on the back burner as I have a long-term plan for the manabase - get Revised Duals for the deck. So far, i'm well on my way. Speaking of mana...

ShadowedLucifer, for Bayou 's slot, i'd use Woodland Cemetery . That was the card in that slot previously. For Scrubland however I'd slot in ether Saltcrusted Steppe (that was the card previously in that slot) or Isolated Chapel . Hope those suggestions help - by the way, are you building a deck of similar design? I'd love to see your ideas.
