Dark Depths

Legendary Snow Land

Dark Depths enters the battlefield with ten ice counters on it.

: Remove an ice counter from Dark Depths.

When Dark Depths has no ice counters on it, sacrifice it. If you do, create Marit Lage, a legendary 20/20 black Avatar creature token with flying and indestructible.

Demarge on Nissa, Steward of the Chain

Walking Ballista could provide that game ending win with the creature mana and Beast Whisperer can provide the mass card draw from food chain (you can stop yourself from decking when comboing by food chaining the whisperer) using these can free you up a little and you can use mana dorks or cantrips, Drift of Phantasms is also a rather good tutor for either food chain mana piece or lab man. I do admit I just spent some of the hours I shoudl be sleeping to build a Tamiyo, Collector of Tales food chain/ Dark Depths lands deck, Traverse the Ulvenwald seems to always be delirious when I can cast it as a signature spell.

Vesuva and Dark Depths do not work together.

Vesuva enters the battlefield as a copy of that land--this is a replacement effect that changes the manner it enters the battlefield. In this case, it will enter as if it were a Dark Depths , which means Dark Depths' own replacement effect putting 10 ice counters on it also applies.

Thespian's Stage becomes a copy of Dark Depths , but, since counters are not copied and since Thespian's Stage was already on the battlefield, the replacement effect portion of Dark Depths is never implicated by the copy. Since the Thespian's Stage copy has no counters on it, the triggered ability triggers, and you get the token.

I know that I can use Thespian's Stage on Dark Depths to get Marit Lage out...

Does this also work with Vesuva and Dark Depths ?

DeltaDisease Dark Depths enters the battlefield with 10 ice counters on it. If you use Thespian's Stage to copy Dark Depths the enter the battlefield ability won't trigger and it immediately creates a Marit Lage token.

I would add Thespian's Stage for the combo with Dark Depths

I'm looking to build a grixis superfriends deck and am looking for these cards. I have just updated my binder with everything I currently have.

If you're going to run the locus lands you should play Vesuva , Thespian's Stage , and a spicy Dark Depths for that sweet sweet Stage Depths combo.

Also OG Ugin/Karn are definitely add-ins here, they are far more powerful than the newer ones.

Mox Opal , Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Basalt Monolith , and Rings of Brighthearth are all solid cards here for ramp but might not fit the budget.

If you keep your spells or CMC low to the ground you could do a colorless storm build using Aetherflux Reservoir .

Also I'm a huge fan of Chaos Wand + Engine + Rocks to cast all of everyone's stuff! (serves two purposes, fun and to get rid of those cards so they can't be used against you!).

Codex Shredder is great, it also has a one time recursion ability, unless you play Myr Retriever or Trading Post (strongly suggest the latter).

Not sure why Sculpting Steel isn't already here.

Spine of Ish Sah is great permanent removal that can be reused, with oh say a Trading Post or Ashnod's Altar . Speaking of Ashnod's + Nim Deathmantle + Battlesphere is fun, infinite dudes.

Staff of Domination is a little pricey but... definitely a utility here!

Wurmcoil Engine for SURE belongs in the deck.

Mind's Eye for sure belongs here for some draw power!

Lastly Voltaic Key combos with a lot of stuff in artifacts.

Also I'm much more inclined to encourage the artifact route with some Eldrazi titan's at the top end, than a weird mix like you have now. My artifact deck, Daretti, runs one Ulamog, Ceaseless Hunger as just a top end as it generates a lot of mana naturally... Also gotta love that two Scour From Existences for 4 mana less...

How about a Thief of Blood ? A plan B to get get those counters off of Dark Depths .
