Darigaaz's Caldera Discussion
2 weeks ago
Thanks for the comments, everyone!
Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor, that's some great input. Unfortunately, I won't be adding Scapeshift or Crucible of Worlds to the deck, as they are out of my budget. Adding Gitrog and Angry Omnath is going to be costly enough right now. Need for Speed is interesting, though. Would you run that over Concordant Crossroads if you have one? Having another land sac outlet is nice.
Poly_raptor, thanks for all the ideas. Ramunap Excavator will get added, but not Crucible of Worlds , for budgetary reasons. I don't mind that Rites of Flourishing benefits others at the table; I run it in several decks. I guess the question is, do you think I'll need to run it once I get The Gitrog Monster and Mina and Denn, Wildborn added into the deck? I'm just trying to make sure I've got enough extra land drop outlets to run faster, and it's budget friendly; I'm not going in on Azuza, Lost but Seeking (your wallet) or Oracle of Mul Daya because the prices on those cards are ludicrous. I might have a copy of Burgeoning to add in, though.
As for the lands: Darigaaz's Caldera is already in, and I think I'll add in Undiscovered Paradise , and perhaps Ghost Town later on (it doe work in my Tatyova deck). Thawing Glaciers is great, but too pricey once again. Also, thank you guys for the land count considerations, too. I'll have to experiment with it. I've noticed with the current count, I've always got plenty.
The land droppers are under consideration; I just don't know where I'll have room for them once I get everything else I want crammed into this.
Is Groundskeeper worth keeping around?

I too am I big fan of lands matters decks. I like your reasoning for wingrace over gitrog and completely agree with you.
I’ll put my feedback into some panels to make it look nicer.
Nice deck. Have a +1

I'm really liking where your deck is at! I will say to throw in Mana Confluence and City of Brass to replace Darigaaz's Caldera and Survivors' Encampment because they have no funky clauses to activate them or make them work other than they deal 1 point of damage to you. Unless you're trying to keep the land base sort of budget.
As for Greater Good I feel that maybe it's alright at best, because you're not killing creatures that are big that often. I understand the value you can get from it. Kill Reyhan with it when she's big, transfer the counters over to Tana, draw a ton of cards etc. But if it only works when you can get value from it in that situation, I think it can be replaced with something that will give you value all the time, not some of the time. It's the reason I took it out of Kresh. I wasn't going to get the value I thought I would get most of the time. Maybe replace it with Xenagos, the Reveler if you're having trouble getting red mana?
I'm glad it's working out well for you though! Isn't the Vigor/BA combo funny? lol

Some cheap lands I suggest instead of Vivid Crag , Vivid Grove , Darigaaz's Caldera and some basic lands: Blighted Woodland and Myriad Landscape ramp you. Bojuka Bog hoses graveyard players. Golgari Rot Farm , Gruul Turf , Rakdos Carnarium and Jund Panorama give you more land-drops. Sheltered Thicket and Canyon Slough can be easily fetched or brought back from the graveyard after cycled. Cinder Glade and Smoldering Marsh are also fetchable. When Standard rotates, Dragonskull Summit , Rootbound Crag , Woodland Cemetery , Blood Crypt , Stomping Ground and Overgrown Tomb will be way cheaper.

I don't know if you are working off a budget or not, but when cascading, it could be helpful to know what cards are coming, so I'd offer options like Sylvan Library, Mirri's Guile, Sensei's Divining Top, and the under-utilized Soothsaying, and also Scroll Rack if there's something in your hand you want to cascade into play.

Addressing the land problem, here's a few budget conscious land options:
Also add a few of each basic. Have fun Commandering!

If you miss land drops 2 turns in a row and aren't able to cast anything in the first few turns in a match, you can discard 2 cards at random and Cultivate. Most people don't use that in our group though because they keep good hands, but I had to use it because I had a Terminate in my hand upside down that I thought was a Darigaaz's Caldera at first when I was fanning through my hand and didn't notice until we started.
