Blighted Woodland Discussion

ZendikariWol thank you for replying to me so I remembered this thread. And yes the date went well :) Sorry for the delay in responding; I've been bogged down in work, dating, and taking care of my disabled mother.
Anywho! On to the story!
SETUP: I was playing Lord Windgrace . I was playing against Aristocrats via Edgar Markov , a stompy deck and something else. I'm not really sure on the specifics; This was now nearly two months ago. Markov was the clear oppressor on the field; What the player would do is cast cheap Vampires to get the free tokens, then sacrifice the non-token Vampires for benefits and use recursion to bring them back into his hand to cast again for more tokens. Boons / Anthems made his ever-growing boardstate very difficult to manage. Felt more like Archenemy, really.
This was a very long game. We got to around T9 and I decided to reset the game by casting Deathbringer Regent , but Markov quickly rebuilt easily.
On my next turn, I decided I had enough of this and went for the kill.
I assumed between the three Elementals and my Regent, nobody would really pick a fight with me. The Markov player did attempt to attack Windgrace directly with a single Vampire Nighthawk who had been buffed a little, so I traded with Regent because I wanted Windgrace to survive. I cracked off Terramorphic Expanse on his end step, got a basic and a third Elemental.
- Cast Khalni Heart Expedition
- Play Blighted Woodland
- +1 Elemental (4x total)
- , sac Blighted Woodland , tutor 2x basic lands
- +2 more Elementals (6x total)
- Crack Khalni Heart Expedition , tutor 2x more basic lands
- +2 more Elementals (8x total)
- Return Blighted Woodland and Terramorphic Expanse
- Crack Expanse for another basic
- +1 more Elemental (9x total)
- , sac Woodland, +2 more basic lands
- +2 more Elementals (9x total)
(This was 17 mana on I believe T12, maybe T13 thanks to some extremely efficient land drop spells. I don't actually run stones in the deck - I have more lands or land tutors slotted in their spots because I focus around the Landfall mechanic.)
I had just enough mana left over to cast a Savage Twister with X=5. Wiped 98% of the board, but more importantly I killed all 10 of my Elementals (9x tokens + Omnath, Locus of Rage ) for a staggering 30 damage, killing Markov's player and winning the game.
TL;DR - Won via boardwiping myself

Hey, interesting concept, good start for a budget deck. Nice Loam Ultimate Box Topper :)
I think if you want to win with Maniac or Jace by drawing a card without any cards in your library then you want more low mana cost draw effects that you can access from your graveyard. Other low mana cost instant/sorcery spells for draw are also good.
Budget cards ($3 or less each) for draw to consider adding:
Cards to consider cutting:
- Jwari Shapeshifter
- Mirror Image
- Fated Infatuation
- Natural Affinity
- Worm Harvest
Buried Alive is great with dredge creatures: Grave-Troll, Stinkweed, etc. Tutor for three of them and put them all into your graveyard. Jarad's Orders and Final Parting are tutors that can put a card into your hand and also one into your graveyard. Wonder is good with self-mill; when in the graveyard and you control an Island can give Muldrotha flying making her a bigger threat to attack and do Commander damage.
Animate Dead is great with Muldrotha's ability to play an enchantment from your graveyard. Two drop reanimation that can reanimate Muldrotha or any other creature in your graveyard or target a creature in one of your opponent's graveyards. Kaya's Ghostform enchantment that makes it hard for your opponents to remove Muldrotha. Helps to keep Muldrotha out of the Command Zone.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Rites of Flourishing
- Zendikar's Roil
- Zendikar Resurgent
- Undergrowth Champion
- Far Wanderings
- Villainous Wealth
Budget land upgrades to consider:
- Llanowar Wastes > Dimir Aqueduct
- Yavimaya Coast > Simic Growth Chamber
- Blighted Woodland > Myriad Landscape
- Fetid Pools > 1x Island
- Geier Reach Sanitarium > 1x Swamp
Three $5 cards to consider adding are Fauna Shaman , Mystic Remora and Eternal Witness . Fauna is an engine with dredge creatures to repeatedly get them into your graveyard while also tutoring for another creature. Remora is one of the best sources of repeatable no mana cost draw in multiplayer Commander. With Muldrotha you don't have to pay the upkeep cost just choose to sac it and then play it again from your graveyard. Witness is powerful with self-mill to recur nonpermanent cards from your graveyard.

This is what I have so far for this next update!
?????????? OUT FOR Elvish Reclaimer

I run Atraxa +1/+1 counter deck it takes a little time to get rolling as while the only way to get mana quicker is fetch lands, mana dorks which green has a ton of or mana rocks. With four colors for mana fixing in land I like my liars Dromar's Cavern and Treva's Ruins they are cheap and you tap a land to float mana drop the liar pick up the tap land tap the liar for your mana color you need. Also Blighted Woodland is a cheap option. Also a card like Bounty of the Luxa works better in commander them some think you are getting either card draw or mana every turn. These are cheap options that can help the deck

In my version, I'm going to try Nissa, Who Shakes the World and Nissa's Triumph , because I already use Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip and Nissa, Vital Force - Nissa's Triumph is sick if you have a Nissa Planeswalker out.. if only the lands went to the battlefield! Nissa, Who Shakes the World 's ultimate is nuts with Om-nom out! I also have Prismatic Omen in my version, so Nissa, Who Shakes the World 's extra forest mana static is that much better. If the Nissa planeswalker direction works well, I might just have to put Evolution Sage in.
TBH, I'm not sold on Wrenn and Six yet, he doesn't really protect himself if you get him in an opening draw, he comes in with low loyalty - he's more of a mid-game play... I'd rather have a ramp spell than him, tbh.. like Kodama's Reach - he mostly just keeps the Om-nom engine running, and there are other options that I think are better. Pulling him for a bust-the-game-wide-open card like Boundless Realms wouldn't be my first choice.. but give it a try!

Guerte: It seems like we agree with just about everything here.
These changes lower my avg CMC quite a bit. This only matters for early game of course, butcause we can cast any card we want once that ball gets rolling. This just leaves Circuitous Route as the odd man out. Do you think these changes make since, or would you do it differently? DO you think there is another card that could be cut for a third Explosive Vegetation ? I don't think you play it for the fact you can fetch a guild-gate, but just for the fact that it does the same thing as Explosive.
Are you feeling low on bombs? Normally a bomb is just icing on the cake for this deck. More or less a quicker win. If you want a ruthless bomb at a high CMC I would go with Tooth and Nail over most others. It is not my style though.
