Blighted Steppe Discussion

Deltis on B/W Standard Zombies

Guess I can try using just the cards listed to help. put all four Cursed Minotaur, two Fan Bearer, and two Doomed Dissenter to the side board. That will drop you to 23 creatures and ten non-creatures. Put two of each In Oketra's Name and Supernatural Stamina from your maybe board to the side board then the rest to the main board. That'll take you to 23 creature and 14 non-creature main board and an eight creature and four non-creature side board leaving you with three slots open in it. As far as land goes, I'd suggest up to six BW lands, maybe two fetch lands and the rest basic. That should do pretty well. Your selection of BW lands is Shambling Vent, Forsaken Sanctuary, and Concealed Courtyard. Other lands that could possibly be useful are... Mortuary Mire, Blighted Steppe, Blighted Fen, Aether Hub, Spire of Industry, and Cradle of the Accursed

Along the lines of adding land diversity you could also throw in Blighted Steppe or Blighted Fen for some fun interaction.

Not really. Sigarda, Heron's Grace is really helpful since it gives hexproof and generates tokens for blocking. And it's the only flying creature in this deck after all.

Talking about lands I've never had any problem with color distribution IRL. Blighted Steppe saves life sometimes if you use its activated ability at the right time. And Westvale Abbey  Flip is great with Sigarda, Heron's Grace – angel creates tokens that can be painlessly sacrificed to create a demon :) Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip is alternative wincon btw

Thanks for your upvote!

Also, the mana base seems weird. Out of 23 lands, you have 6 that only give colorless while you have 11 cards in the main (2 in the side) that require double white or double green. Especially when it comes to the Nissa in the main. You only have 2 Reality Smashers that actually require colorless to be cast. I understand that the idea is to use Cryptolith Rite to then use tokens to generate obscene amounts of mana. However, if you don't draw Crypto or it gets removed (and game 2 it very well might once they see your strat) you're left with a mana base that will have trouble casting double green and double white consistently on turn 3-4. I would recommend either removing 3-4 sources of colorless from your lands (1 Blighted Steppe and 2 Westvale Abbey  Flip seems good) in favor of more colored sources. You could also look into putting a more dedicated mana dork in the main so that it can help fix your mana.

Have you considered Verdurous Gearhulk over Sigarda, Heron's Grace - Yes Sigarda, Heron's Grace has more in the way of deck theme but, Verdurous Gearhulk speeds up the win.

In draw testing your deck I would get washed out by colorless lands, do you really need Blighted Steppe and 2 Westvale Abbey  Flip? (I would just use 3 basic lands in that place of them, keeping 1 abbey).

all in all +1

Cleric tribal looks like such a fun build. Have you considered Blighted Steppe for the life gain effect over Blighted Fen?

twfxtwink on Cat Tribal - Competitive

Thoughts on Blighted Steppe? I've been brewing my own version of cat tribal, though more of a budget version, and as I was going though my collection I came across the Steppe and thought, hey, since I'm bound to have tons of cat tokens thanks to the Guardian bouncing the Caracal all the time, why not have this land that gains me 2 life for each creature I control when I sac it? And then why not run Pulse of Murasa so I can get the Steppe back from the grave and do it all over again? Seems like an interesting prospect.
