Breeding Pool Discussion

razelfark on 4 color casual 60 card dragon brew

1 day ago

I like the deck flavor. If you want some deck idea control suggestions then you can make use of the classic Lightning Bolt or the strong dragon oriented burn Draconic Roar. Both are strong early burn options that can be relevant if drawn in the later portion of the game.

Something I would change with your deck layout would also be your cmc. You run a lot of the expensive mana cost dragons. I think you might want to cut a couple of the 6+ mana cost cards for some more of the 4 cost Thunderbreak Regent.

Last suggestion would be to add 1 copy of the other two forest shock lands (Breeding Pool and Temple Garden) so you can help ensure a turn 1 green mana source for Birds of Paradise when you have any of the fetches in your hand.

Best of luck with the deck.

No, you can only fetch lands that have "Forest" or "Island" in the type line (the bit directly below the illustration), so things like Forest, Island, Breeding Pool, Dryad Arbor etc.

I really don't think Mirror Gallery is worth the slot; to combat the problem of having multiple Kruphixes be dead draws, you're introducing a card that will be a dead draw if you don't draw at least 2 Kruphixes. You'd be much better off just adding some cheap card filtering like Serum Visions or Opt so you're less likely to have too many Kruphix in the first place, which will also improve the deck's overall consistency.

there are much better ways to copy your Biovisionary than Progenitor Mimic or Infinite Reflection. those cost too much mana. Phantasmal Image would be an example of a good replacement. also, if Overgrown Battlement is the only creature in the deck with defender, its not worth it. at that point its basically a worse version of Llanowar Elves, which outside of an elf tribal deck, is already worse than Birds of Paradise. Predator Ooze is really mana intensive, and can't reliably be cast on curve with your current land base. the fact that your land base is all basics, with exactly half in each color, tell me you're a really new player. i'd recommend dual lands like Misty Rainforest, Breeding Pool, and Hinterland Harbor. but without actual removal spells to kill off opposing creatures, the Predator Ooze isn't worth it in the first place. the Prime Speaker Zegana is basically worthless here. the highest power among your cards that will "always" be creatures is 2, and even if you have the devotion for Kruphix, God of Horizons that only raises it to 4. there are better things you can do for 6 mana. Biovisionary isn't worth it as a win condition unless you actually have some sort of draw and/or scry effects to pull it out reliably, such as Serum Visions, Opt, or Nissa, Steward of Elements.

JagDogger2525 on Does Blood Moon or Magus ...

I am talking about lands like Blood Crypt, Breeding Pool, Hallowed Fountain, etc. Would I still be able to tap for either land or is it still mountains?

Hey, nice upgrades to the Ezuri precon.

I agree with ThallionDarkshine the Cube + Sages combo is out of place here. Honestly you don't need it.

I suggest a few Simic Commander staples that are all budget:

Bident of Thassa and Bred for the Hunt are enchantments that can draw you a lot of cards especially if your attacking creatures have trample.

For the manabase I suggest a lot more Simic dual lands most are budget:

In my opinion your deck is currently fine as is except the manabase. Before upgrading anything else upgrade the manabase.

fixing the manabase is probably the most important part of this deck. You're going to want to get rid of anything that enters the battlefield tapped, then you're going to want to add Inkmoth Nexus. After that, you'll want a Dryad Arbor, 1-2 Pendelhaven and ~8-11 fetches (Misty Rainforest, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs, Wooded Foothills... cards that can fetch either Breeding Pool or dryad arbor or basic forest)

There be dragons! :D So... you need quick mana for him?

Island, City of Brass, Command Tower, Gemstone Mine, Mana Confluence, Polluted Delta, Cephalid Coliseum, Misty Rainforest, Watery Grave, Darkslick Shores, or Breeding Pool to get one blue.

then Mana Vault, Sol Ring, or Mana Crypt for 2 more mana

Grim Monolith and if you have another way of getting one more mana in your hand Basalt Monolith will work as well

Then you need Power Artifact or if you have Ancient Tomb play that and Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond instead of one of the above lands to play Rings of Brighthearth, with combo Gemstone Array to convert your mana into one mana of any color and go infinite


or Argothian Elder, a land to tap for green and Elvish Spirit Guide, Mana Vault, Sol Ring, or Mana Crypt, and Exploration Azusa, Lost but Seeking if you didnt have Elvish Spirit Guide in hand. and Concordant Crossroads in hand go infinte with it


play a Forest and with the mana play Eladamri's Vineyard /Exploration for one more green mana at the begining of your next main phase play Arbor Elf, and Utopia Sprawl on your Forest, then play Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond of another mana using that mana play Mana Vault then play Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond one of them you didnt play then play Freed from the Real/Pemmin's Aura

Above isn't from originally me, I just happened to be looking at it when I saw your deck :D

Lands coming into play tapped is a enormous downside, especially in a deck like this where we need the mana available as soon as possible. Another upside of fetches is they can get Breeding Pool for only three life and you have access to both blue and green mana
