Blasted Landscape Discussion
1 week ago
If you are new to Legacy, I highly suggest you to play combo deck or some noninteractive aggro, because then you need to just learn to play your deck. If you want to play interactive deck, you need to also know what your opponent is doing and in Legacy "What is my opponent trying to do?" is quite open question. If you know what you are going to go against it's a lot easier, but you still need to learn more decks than by playing noninteractive decks. Familirize with format before playing interactive decks to know how to interact. Let's try to play some control then:
4 Drifting Meadow
4 Slippery Karst
4 Blasted Landscape
3 Swords to Plowshares
3 Gilded Light
3 Blade Splicer
4 Day of Judgment
2 Eternal Dragon
4 Wall of Roots
4 Astral Slide
3 Wall of Blossoms
2 Acidic Slime
4 Street Wraith
This is quite rough version and it's quite undercosted for your budget. You can improve it with Living Wish and wishboard, use Containment Priest for shenanigans and with more. You could add somewhere Lone Missionary somewhere or Reclamation Sage. Perhaps you want to splash a colour, anyway it's easily customizable for your own preferences. Your meta seems to be light on Abrupt Decay, so Astral Slide felt natural way to go.

Thank you turnyouover for making this deck, I definitely wanna take this to an FNM just to troll people
Also do you know of a way to make a commander version of this?
I just tried it out online for a bit, now I just need to paper it so I can actually see the look on people's faces as I mill myself, so fun :)

seeing the name of this deck got me all excited....seeing the decklist...not as much sadly....(nostalgia of being one of those ppl that actually played Angel Stompy Slide in Legacy on and off during onslaught era and thereafter).
The original Standard lists used Exalted Angel morphed, and then cycle/slide it out to flip it rather than pay 2. Eternal Dragon, Akroma's Vengeance and frequently used Gilded Light and Decree of Justice. This is in addition to Slide/Rift/cycling lands of course.
The Legacy lists at the time were far more interesting. Among the All-Stars of all of the Legacy lists; Fluctuator and the Urza's Saga Cycling Lands... Slippery Karst, Drifting Meadow, Polluted Mire (I'm just listing just Abzan) and sometimes even Blasted Landscape as it doesn't etb tapped. After Life from the Loam was printed one of my favorite variants was Abzan with Unearth, Witness, Slide and Invigorating Boon + Troll Ascetic. Flicker Witness, slide away any blockers and Grow-a-Troll....With a ridiculous dredge draw engine once you get Fluctuator/Life from the Loam & 3x Urza's Cycle lands. (Cast Loam, grab 3 cycle lands, cycle all three for free, decline the draw on the 3rd to dredge Loam back....)
I'm not suggesting you go with any of the variants above per say, just hoping to familiarize you with some of what you might have missed from the era. As for your current list I'd say your thought to ditch red is right on track. I've tried numerous variants of slide with Rift / Land's Edge and or Seismic Assault and while entertaining, I wasn't happy with the way any of these preformed. I think right now is a great time to revisit this casual deck as commander 2016 just gave it a shiny new gift in the form of Ash Barrens. Ordering 4 of these online seems like a must! Sooooo if you go with 3-4 Fluctuators (which is a more disrupt-able/semi-reliant route, but extremely powerful when it works) I'd say 2x of each of the abzan colored Urza's cycling lands and 1x each Onslaught cycle lands. Without Fluctuator I'd still go up to 3x each Onslaught land. This is in addition to 4x Ash Barren, ditch evolving wilds/terramorphic expanse. With a better mana base, we no longer need Edge of Autumn. Rampant Growth with a cycling ability that sacs lands when you've already been playing half your lands tapped on etb in Slide which is already a slow control deck is horrible. I'd probably go -1 Rhino and +1 Unearth (maybe even +2) as well as finding more aggro-ish 3 drops in place of your 6 walls (not that I'm not a fan of either of the walls, this just doesn't seem like the place for them in spite of the etb flavor).
Anyways I'm hoping you find some inspiration within the wall of text I just carved out, and I'm giving you an upvote regardless what you do to the deck from here, just cause it's awesome to see someone actually playing SLIDE!

Corrupted Crossroads and Opal Palace aren't able to use their abilities here. To name a few lands in a similar price range, you might try Blasted Landscape, Crystal Vein, the new Sequestered Stash, or Cloudpost with Glimmerpost. Or just add another couple Wastes.
