Kholek on Tatyova, Help Wanted

4 days ago

I used to have a pretty competitive Tatyova. when building her you really want to focus on her ability, she is a Landfall goddess.

LANDS: 38 More Lands are needed, Terramorphic Expanse is another Evolving Wilds and triggers Tatyova twice. and what i believe is a great land card and if not a staple for this deck Alchemist's Refuge . this card with Seedborn Muse will give you practically another turn on someone else's turn.

Since you going to be bring in lands allot, your going to want other creatures that play off the "Landfall" trigger.

Rampaging Baloths creating a 4/4 beast with every land can make you quite scary. Roil Elemental Stealing your opponents creatures when a land enters will give you huge advantage. Psychosis Crawler your going to be drawing lots of cards, might as well deal some damage with it. Hedron Crab and then we have a bit of mill... actually this is scary. you can play this card fast and let the hurt begin.

INSTANTS: Krosan Grip A K-grip is always a good card to have in a deck. Crop Rotation It brings in a land. and you can find Reliquary Tower . another land card that is a must have in a deck that will have you drawing so many cards. Deprive Returning cards to your hand is a great way to play lands again. this is a cheap spell with an EXPLOSIVE result.

SORCERIES: you have no land fetch cards in this deck. Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are a must have to really kick things off. Explosive Vegetation , Rampant Growth .

ENCHANTMENT: a great card for "landfall" is Burgeoning if you can get this out early is crazy ramp. if you can get it out mid to even late game is SUPER good with all the "Landfall" triggers you might have out on the table. Courser of Kruphix here is a way to play lands from the top of your library in case you don't have any in your hand. plus some extra life gain. Exploration lets you play more land per your turn. Zendikar's Roil and some more tokens per land entering the battlefield.

ARTIFACTS: once this deck starts to really take off Aetherflux Reservoir will end games fast. Alhammarret's Archive even more life and even more card draw. Storm Cauldron is a nasty card. it will stop other plays in their tracks, while giving you all the advantage.

COMBOS: There are a few combos that are optional.

Amulet of Vigor , Perilous Forays and any token generator Rampaging Baloths , Zendikar's Roil ... you can even use your opponents creatures as sac fodder if you have Roil Elemental . HOW THIS WORKS: with Perilous Forays pay sac a creature, find a land and put it on the battlefield. triggering Zendikar's Roil creating another creature. with Amulet of Vigor that land comes in untapped, allowing you to repeat this until you have all your basic land and all the triggers you could possibly want.

this is an infinite combo Retreat to Coralhelm , Walking Atlas and Simic Growth Chamber this allows you to repeatedly bounce Simic Growth Chamber to your hand and on the battlefield as many times as you want.

Biovisionary , Infinite Reflection and a token generator or Rite of Replication .

So here is my suggestions. just ways to energize with Tatyova. Hope this helps.

Not enough lands. 38 lands at a minimum for a LANDS strategy. While turn one dorks/rocks are strong, they lack the survivability of lands. I advise cutting any dorks that tap for a single color. The rest are self explanatory.

Cuts: Llanowar Elves Elves of Deep Shadow Fyndhorn Elves Elvish Mystic Priest of Titania Fellwar Stone Chrome Mox Lotus Petal

Adds: Mountain 2x Swamp Oracle of Mul Daya Mina and Denn, Wildborn World Shaper Courser of Kruphix Horn of Greed

Courser of Kruphix is a worthwhile consideration for the extra card type, and is generally a good blocker. I'd also consider 2-4 Fabled Passage to help delirium, and get more value out of Tracker.


Magnanimous on Kiora: Cruelty Without End

2 weeks ago

Hey, I was working on a Field of the Dead deck in Pioneer and found that Kiora, the Crashing Wave fit absolutely perfectly. You could try it in Pioneer if you wanted (here's my start:, or you could continue in Modern.

The idea is to delay the game with Fog , Spell Pierce , etc. while ramping up to seven lands for Field of the Dead . Kiora ramps, stalls, draws cards, and acts as a secondary win-con.

If you continued in Modern, the mana would be difficult and I actually think going three or four color could work given the constraints for Field of the Dead . White for Holy Day / Dawn Charm or black for Darkness / Abrupt Decay / Painful Truths are both good options. You could go up to crazy numbers of lands and play any of Arboreal Grazer , Explore , Courser of Kruphix , and Growth Spiral instead of your current creatures to ramp every turn so you can get the combo up and running by turn 5. Alternatively you could go for control instead of ramp with Thoughtseize , Abrupt Decay , Spell Pierce , Mana Leak , etc.

MrBoombastic Those are some excellent suggestions! It is good to find a fellow Seasons Past enthusiast. Thank you for all your excellent suggestions.

  • I definitely agree that Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is amazing. I was thinking of having Anafenza, the Foremost as redundant graveyard hate and to counter opponents Kalitases. You may be right about having two Kalitases and replace the Anafenza. I'll keep Anafenza on the Maybe board just in case.

  • That is a fair point about Dark Petition being the work horse of the old Seasons Past deck, and the added consistency of getting our Angels with it is very desirable. I've added more into the main board. I do want to keep two Seasons Past in the main board, specifically because of counter magic in game one. That is probably just a personal preference though. I will test it with only one, and see how it does!

  • Yeah, the mana base is pretty messy. I was trying to work with the lands I already had, but I've abandoned that in favor of the mana base I want to work towards: including Fabled Passage . Also, I do really like Courser of Kruphix as well. I will try to find something to cut in favor of it.

  • I see this as more of a Midrange deck as it has a lot of creature and value focus. As such, I am more inclined to lean towards targeted removal rather than board wipes since they will hurt my board quite a bit. I may be wrong in that assessment though, so I'll spend some time testing that as well.

Thank you for the great suggestions, and good luck on those Sultai and Golgari Seasons Past decks! Send me a link to them if you find one that gets good results! :D

Hi there.

I'm working on a Sultai or Golgari version of Seasons Past myself. It was a blast to play back in Standard. A few suggestions:

Good luck!

Wayward Swordtooth is a great card, don't get me wrong but if I had to choose what to replac for it, wether it's ramp, card draw, sweep or even Courser of Kruphix , the Wayward Swordtooth looses every time, because this deck doesn't lack ways to put more lands onto the battlefield and Swordtooth seems the slowest way for that. If take it a step further I would rather put in more card draw then Swordtooth.

Hi there,

This deck already looks great, but we thought it would be worth mentioning several cards that could increase its power even more:

Warm regards,
