Blood Crypt Discussion

Chadderson, I'm not Mortlocke but I am working my way up to building this deck. the easiest budget alternative to the original duals I have found is shocklands, like Steam Vents or Blood Crypt. They have basic land types so they are still fetchable with cards like Scalding Tarn. They were also recently reprinted in the Ravnica sets last year so they should be less expensive right now.

PorterRobinson There's really no such thing as replacements for those cards, unfortunately. Day's Undoing is the closest thing effect and cmc wise to Timetwister, but ending your turn immediately is a significant downside.

Land wise, you could look at Blood Crypt/Luxury Suite/Sulfurous Springs for Badlands, as well as Shivan Reef for Volcanic Island. The BFZ lands or the Shadow lands could be used in a pinch as well I suppose, since they are fetchable but come with conditions to enter untapped (and don't come in U/R combinations).

As for replacing Imperial Seal, you could look at Cruel Tutor or Wishclaw Talisman.

So I'm just looking at your manabase.

If I may suggest, you need either more lands (at least 34-35), or to go for a more expensive manabase. For example, Blood Crypt and Sulfurous Springs would be nice additions. Maybe even a Foreboding Ruins since you have a decent number of swamps and mountains. Personally I'm not a big fan of tappedlands, so I would try to replace as many of those as possible (but that's just me).

Depending on how hard into the flavor is important, you could also maybe drop one of the Cluestone/Keyrune/Locket for Rakdos Signet and/or maybe Talisman of Indulgence. Arcane Signet never goes amiss either.

Incorrigible Youths is pretty weak, and Insult/Injury seems pretty out of place. Vraska's Contempt is pretty expensive at 4 mana too. Gisa's Bidding, Bloodghast, and Big Game Hunter are all possible options for the creature slot. Hero's Downfall is probably a better option than Vraska's Contempt for dealing with creatures and planeswalkers. Honestly though I don't think a deck this fast should be too scared of planeswalkers in the first place - I'd consider Lightning Axe instead of any black destruction spell. Cathartic Reunion or Thrill of Possibility could provide you with some much needed card advantage. You could definitely use Blood Crypts since you have 8 one mana spells - don't want to be caught with only taplands that won't let you cast them! And I assume the 6 Hanweird Battlements is a typo?

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

Oh, and sorry this is coming in bursts. I'm just noticing one thing at a time. The other thing that will vastly improve this deck is getting some of the tap lands out. Unfortunately, any dual land touching blue is absurdly expensive, so I won't lecture you on how a fetch/shock/ABU dual manabase is always correct. There are some budget options, though:

Shocks were reprinted relatively recently, so investing in Blood Crypt, Steam Vents, and Watery Grave now will improve your deck's speed, and if you run the slow fetches Bad River, Mountain Valley, and Rocky Tar Pit, the mana should be very consistent, as well. Drowned Catacomb, Dragonskull Summit, Choked Estuary, and Foreboding Ruins also like more basic land types. Grixis Panorama and Ash Barrens are nice, because they can come down untapped or fix!

Temple of the False God is garbage. Being stuck on 3 lands and Temple until turn 6 will slow you down. Yep.

As for tapped lands, Temple of Deceit, Temple of Malice, and Temple of Epiphany are in-print now, so they'll be good replacements for whatever vanilla dual lands are left.

Heliogabale on Grenzo goblin deck

Welcome to Commander!

First, your goblin deck is illegal; you cannot play Alesha, Who Smiles at Death in Rakdos because she has white in her color identity.

Second, your mana base could use an upgrade. Command Tower , Blood Crypt , Dragonskull Summit , Tainted Peak , Auntie's Hovel , Castle Embereth , Foreboding Ruins , Graven Cairns , Luxury Suite , Myriad Landscape , Smoldering Marsh , and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle are all worth looking into for this color combination.

Then, you are missing several Goblin staples, like Goblin Recruiter , Goblin King , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker .

Finally, Coat of Arms can quickly turn against you. Better use Door of Destinies , Vanquisher's Banner , Icon of Ancestry and Herald's Horn . And Kindred Charge .

Hope this helps, happy building!
