Blackcleave Cliffs Discussion

2018/12/09: The mana base has gone budget, since I decided to sell off my 4 Blackcleave Cliffs while the price was very high. I replaced them with 3x Dragonskull Summit and a second Blood Crypt.

This is one of my favorite modern combos, and I can definitely help you with the manabase and sideboard and possibly the mainboard if you’re willing to change it.

1) The Manabase

I’m not sure how much you’re willing to spend on the manabase, but in the modern format the mana is usually the most expensive part of the deck. I will give you budget and nonbudget options. Obviously don’t take all of these suggestions because then you would have maybe 40 lands

A: Fetchlands

These cost between 20-50 dollars. For your deck, if your willing to spend that much, I would reccomend 4 Bloodstained Mire and 2 Polluted Delta. These allow you to selectively get lands depending on what colors of mana you need. These also allow you to pull lands from your deck, decreasing the chance that you whiff on a draw.

B: Shocklands

These cost between 8-30 dollars, and allow you to pay life to fix mana, and the land types mean that they are best when paired with the fetchlands. I would reccomend 4 Blood Crypt

C: Check lands

These cost between 3-10 dollars, and allow you to fix your mana a turn late. These are a decent budget option. I would reccomend 4 Dragonskull Summit.

D: Fast Lands

These are between 5-25 dollars, and are your best option behind the fetchlands. I would recommend 3 Blackcleave Cliffs

You already have the lain land in your mainbaord so I won’t discuss that.

2) The Sideboard

You should probably vary the sideboard a bit. The sideboard is meant to give you the most variety in answering the opponent’s strategy and protecting yours, so I would say you only want to run 1-2 of each card.

A: Engineered Explosives is an amazing card in a variety of matchups, but it’s definitely not budget. If you can afford it, I would say run one of them in the SB.

B: Fulminator Mage is a great card against power decks like Tron and scapeshift, and have the added effect of messing with multi color decks like jund. I would reccomend 2.

C: Damnation is amazing as a hate card against humans, which is a very prominent deck in the meta. I would run 1.

D: the Relic of Progenituss, Shattering Sprees, and Crumble to Dusts are all great, but I would cut them down to 2 each.

3) The Mainboard

A: Bitter Ordeal is an amazing card in the mainboard. I would reccomend that you run 1 grapeshot and 1 ordeal in the mainboard TK give you variety against decks that have responses to either.

B: There are better ways to get the combo to your hand than Beseech the Queen and Diabolic Tutor. These just come off too late and won’t do much in control matchups or combo matchups. Instead, I would run multi-Use dig spells like Faithless Looting, or else you could possible run midrangey control spells like Liliana of the Veil or Liliana, the Last Hope.

MB Changes:

-2 Dakmor Salvage or -1 Dakmor Salvage and -1 Blackcleave Cliffs
-2 Ghost Quarter
-2 Insolent Neonate
-2 Thoughtseize
-1 Assassin's Trophy
-1 Lightning Axe or -1 Golgari Thug
+4 Shriekhorn
+1 Narcomoeba
+1 Life from the Loam
+4 Creeping Chill


SB Changes:

-1 Ghost Quarter/Lightning Axe/Tormod's Crypt
+1 Nature's Claim
-2 Something
+2 Thoughtseize
-1 Something, maybe Ancient Grudge or Lightning Axe
+1 Assassin's Trophy (If so desired, not necessary due to number of removal and LD cards already present)



Game 1 is a sprint for Dredge, don't put ankle weights on and dilute your deck with SB cards in game 1. You're a linear aggro deck that acts like a combo deck, you don't want to react, you want to end the game before the opponent can win or react. The cards you actually lose to in MB right now are generally cards that are difficult to hedge against with Thoughtseize. Things like Terminus are never in the hand, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon only needs to resolve after being hit with Ancient Stirrings, and other boardwipes you can play through due to recursion. You should be going wide enough that most creatures/cards don't bother you with board presence. After G1, sure, side in your Thoughtseizes and removal such as Assassin's Trophy, because then you're not hedging a select amount of cards, you're answering the SB hate cards that are sure to come.
And 23 lands is about 3-4 too many, every list I've seen in the past week since the resurgence of Dredge due to the printing of Creeping Chill has run 19, and the Ghost Quarters seem out of place MB anyway (Also, the past week is relevant. Dredge has seen as many/more results in the past week than the past month. Even before that, the max I saw was 21 lands). Your deck needs to be gas and running that many lands isn't good for what is essentially an aggro deck. Life from the Loam is what fills your hand with lands to pitch to Conflagrate, running too many is going to cost you speed and consistency of hitting your Dredgers.

Hey, thanks for the post on my binder. While it would be nice to finally have my tron pieces together, I am more focused on improving my sideboard and mana for my mardu pyromancer deck. So I am really looking for Leyline of the Voids, Blackcleave Cliffss, Marsh Flats, Ensnaring Bridges, and Surgical Extractions. The Catacomb would be something I would really only want to give up if I was getting a cliff or flat in the deal. Let me know if there is a deal that we can figure out.

Why do you have so many Blackcleave Cliffs when you don't want to miss a land drop? I think you should only run 3 as Cliffs only works on the first three turns. Maybe try adding a Blood Crypt?

I recently took apart the planechase anthology decks so I have a few of the ninja cards people have been getting for their Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow decks. I have:
Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
Sakashima's Student
2x Ninja of the Deep Hours
Walker of Secret Ways
Higure, the Still Wind
Mistblade Shinobi
Throat Slitter
Okiba-Gang Shinobi
Silent-Blade Oni

I have noticed while making this thread that the hyperlink is not reflecting the updated price for several of the cards so check on the TCGplayer website will be needed. The rest of my binder is for sale as well as long as I receive a fair offer based on the TCGplayer pricing. As always, I am willing to explore trades as well. My biggest wants right now are Surgical Extraction, Blackcleave Cliffs, and Leyline of the Void. Just let me know if we can work anything out.

If I were you I almost would be hoping for a reprint for Blackcleave Cliffs but who knows when that’s going to happen tbh. Having a more consistent mana base will definitely help out though.

But what about buying just 2 Blackcleave Cliffs for now, and then use the rest for the sideboard perhaps?
