Drifting Meadow Discussion

chadsansing on Angels-MonoWhite

I might trim 5 lands and the replace some of the remaining Plains with utility/draw lands like Desert of the True, Drifting Meadow, Eiganjo Castle, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Maze of Ith, and Secluded Steppe. You also have the opportunity to run a few wastes and an Eldrazi Displacer + Restoration Angel or Wall of Omens to abuse ETB effects.

Maybe run Gisela, the Broken Blade, if you run Bruna.

Rout, Comeuppance, and Settle the Wreckage are all good conditional wipes you can play at instant speed.

Banishing Light and Cast Out are good complements to O Ring. Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, and Authority of the Consuls might buy you some time.

Finally, a package like Serra's Blessing + High Ground + Reconnaissance can really help smooth out combat.

General Recommendations: Coat of Arms, Door of Destinies, Metallic Mimic, Vanquisher's Banner, Konda's Banner, Adaptive Automaton, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Indulgent Aristocrat, Sanctum Seeker, Profane Procession, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Necropolis Regent, Secure the Wastes, Martial Coup, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Elspeth Tirel, Darien, King of Kjeldor, Heliod, God of the Sun, Ravos, Soultender, Vona, Butcher of Magan , Debtors' Knell, Merciless Eviction, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter, Deathbringer Liege, Righteous War, Pillar of Origins, Cavern of Souls, Unclaimed Territory (meh), Intangible Virtue (meh), Kindred Boon (meh), Eldrazi Monument (meh).

Austere Command, because you can save your tokens.

Strionic Resonator mainly for your general, but it can work for anything that triggers.

I won't try to sell this to you that much, but Mirage Mirror or Mirror of the Forebears can have some trickery to it if you play it right. Can also feel bad if you don't have any creatures on the field.

Late game when you don't need mana: Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, Desert of the Glorified, Desert of the True, Drifting Meadow, Secluded Steppe

JoeBlondie on Sram - Senior Enchantress

big changes in the deck!

In no particular order:


Strata Scythe : too high of a cost for just +X/+X, even if it can win some games

Godsend : same as before, too high of a cost and it functionally says "+3/+3 unblockable", except it is not unblockable when it matters. Can stop some big threats for a while but too situational. I love the card tho.

Prowler's Helm : just wanted to cut some redundant unblockable effects. We already have enough + tutors. You only need one of them when you want to win. Choice was between this and boots and I feel that walls are more common than only-basics

Paradise Mantle : seems amazing until you realize that we don't always have a creature doing nothing on the board that wants to tap for mana

Lightning Greaves : does't help to win, and we usually don't rely just on Sram to kill the opponent, so protection is not that important

Loxodon Warhammer : this cut is done just because the swords are better. Having a tutorable single source of lifelink can save some games tho, so better to still take this in consideration.

Cultivator's Caravan : I tried it, I didn't particularly like it. Sure, good versatility. However, most of the times its just a 3 cmc rock, not that great. The ability to attack is mostly irrilevant since its very incefficient to put equips/auras on it, and blocking still requires a creature to tap for it.

Smuggler's Copter : same issued as the caravan, plus its not versatile. Too much effort to just draw and discard occasionally. All considered, I preferer to run 0 vehicles.

Stasis Cocoon : too narrow. Sometimes can be great (can target breya, fast mana and other things), but other times its a dead card with no relevant targets.

Pacifism : a lot of problematic creatures don't act through the combat phase. Therefore this card is in the weird spot of being outclassed by 3cmc alternatives (prison term, arrest) and darksteel mutation, while also being often functionally equal to Kirtar's desire for double the cost.

Holy Mantle : there are better things to do with 4 mana. Putting it on a spirit dancer is sweet tho.

Faith Unbroken : seems a good combination of pump + draw + removal, until you realize that you are just setting up a very bad 3 for 1 later on. Not terrible thanks to Sram, but there are better plays at 4 mana.

Kor Sanctifiers : the card is ok, however the lack of recursion potential makes so that there are better alternatives.

Stone Haven Outfitter : I was excited for this card being a sort of second mini-skullclamp. Then you realize that this guy passive +1/+1 actually makes skullclamp useless and you really don't want him on the field.

Drifting Meadow : having increased the number of colorless lands, we really don't want too many tapped lands. This gets cut because of the 2 cost of cycling, worse than steppe

Disenchant : here you can cut demystify instead, your choice. Disenchant is more versatile but more costly. Usually I find that enchantments are more problematic than artifacts and I really don't want to face a Stasis with the need of 2 mana open. But I can see it useful when you sit in front of a sharuum/breya/memnarch. Its up to you. You still probably want one of them for the insant speed, for sorcery speed alternatives is better to have recurrable permanents.

Also, if you like Drifting Meadow consider replacing it with Secluded Steppe.

Joumba on Kirin-cleaner, spirit boardwipe deck

Ouch... evil commander deck... +1 love mono

She might have a high cmc, but Avacyn, Angel of Hope can make those wipes single sided... not bad at all. Avacyn, Guardian Angel or Archangel Avacyn  Flip are good and cheaper counterparts.

More wipes? Mass Calcify for mono win! Wrath of God or Planar Cleansing for more hate and control...

You might like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Mistveil Plains for more land diversity and utility. Also perhaps cycling lands for late game, when you find yourself with too many Plains ; Drifting Meadow, Desert of the True and Secluded Steppe

have a good day!

ClockworkSwordfish on White Weenie Warriors (1 CMC EDH)

What a neat concept. I love deckbuilding challenges like this. Just watch out for Void!

I'd strongly recommend you spring for Student of Warfare. Having a one-drop with the potential to be a 4/4 double striker would outshine any of the creatures in the deck currently for sheer size. Caravan Escort isn't nearly as good, but the potential for a 5/5 first striker could still be worth it. You might also like the touch of removal Icatian Javelineers can bring to the table.

I'd also definitely try and grab a copy of Tithe! Nothing quite like getting two lands for one mana. On that topic, though... are you sure you don't have too many lands? When everything is one mana, you're probably running at full capacity once you have, say, two mana. For that reason, I'd at least try and get Secluded Steppe and maybe Drifting Meadow.

So the first thing I would do is clean up the mana base a little and add some more mana rocks to help you cast your spells on time i noticed you have a lot of enter the battles field tapped land so I suggested some better ones and cut a couple. So far the total on suggested changes it $22.61. ill look over the removal and card draw next let me know what you think.

This list is pretty similar to mine, and I'd love to hear which cards are your favorites here so I can get ideas for my list! Innistrad's Last Stand - Odric Keyword EDH

I definitely recommend more card draw. Aggressive white decks tend to run out of steam really quickly, and topdecking can suck. I like to run Bygone Bishop, because he's flavorful and gets me lots of clues off my low curve, Mentor of the Meek for similar reasons, and Puresteel Paladin because I run a few Equipment. You could also consider Sram, Senior Edificer, but I prefer Paladin because it lets me equip stuff for free if I have metalcraft. I also run Secluded Steppe and Drifting Meadow to smoothen out if I topdeck lands, but if you're concerned about curve I wouldn't run them.

Why not run Hour of Revelation over Planar Cleansing? It's strictly better, and not painful on the wallet.

How does Chrome Mox work for you? I have one I pulled from an Eternal Masters draft and I have no idea how to use it.
