Crackling Perimeter Discussion

There are better fogs, also having an alternative win con is always a good idea. Crackling Perimeter is really good and combos well with cards that untap your land every upkeep.

I helped build my friend's Maze's End deck a while back and it was a lot stronger than we thought. We didn't try to do the Primeval Titan route but it was a consideration. Two things we ended up finding out were that Amulet of Vigor and Crackling Perimeter were absolute musts.

Recently, I decided that instead of copying his deck I just wanted to try it completely on my own. So I ended up with At the End of the Tunnel.

I did have Gatecreeper Vine in for a bit. But he was a weak, limited wall.. people just walked past him. And while I do get to search for gates, they don't come onto the field. Immediately.. so it doesn't fix my manan the way I need it to, when I need it to. So I switched to Sylvan Caryatid a stronger, harder to remove wall, that increases mana production immediately. That said, it does slow down that third win condition. I've only pulled it off a couple times. But it's pretty sneaky for those long games. I used it with Crackling Perimeter but found it too slow.

I switched out for Freed from the Real again, thank you. Excellent catch. I'm glad I can still transmute for it too

I used to run Crackling Perimeter and various jank "untap lands every upkeep" cards in emperor to salt people out of the format. Hope that helps

I know what you mean about it being thin. Right now my goal is to survive long enough for me to burn them out with Crackling Perimeter, swing in with Gateway Shade, or combo with Doran, the Siege Tower + Hold the Gates . I planned to saty alive via life gain and the insane toughness buff i get from Hold the Gates. I really like Genesis Wave in here. Scapeshift seems a bit to $50 for me haha but i won't rule it out. Thanks so much btw. I may add some walls and take out some of the aggro stuff, if i do that should i keep in Doran?

Also you could add Crackling Perimeter to make even more use of the gates

Charms has always been my favorite strategy, you can control the game by practically being able to do anything and then you take the surprise win with something like Might of the Nephilim on Cromat, a good old Maze's End win, or even by just slowly burning all your opponents with Crackling Perimeter.
