I definitely suggest Watery Grave and some island/swamp fetch lands are coming out in kahns! I would HIGHLY suggest picking up a playset of those! I know I will be :D also maybe making Drowned Catacomb a playset

Very tough on mana. You need a lot of black sources for the apostles, and at least two blue sources for the Battle of Wits . Some suggested lands: Watery Grave - Underground River - Darkslick Shores - Drowned Catacomb - City of Brass - Mana Confluence . And Polluted Delta , because it will be modern playable very soon. A version of this deck I once built played no Island at all.

Maybe Demonic Collusion for an extra tutor? Or even Brainspoil !

I've tracked down the Drowned Catacomb s I needed (waiting for them to come in the mail before I update). I traced down an Expedition Map , if you still want that.

How about Fauna Shaman , Momir Vig, Simic Visionary , and Expedition Map

for Watery Grave , Howling Mine , Quicken and Dragonskull Summit .

Alternatively, we could leave in Sulfur Falls on your end and I could toss in the Whispersilk Cloak and Lightning Greaves I have.

I like this a lot, Z! A couple card choices I disagree with and what I think would be better in this particular shell.

TL is a format where fetches aren't amazing. You want to run the Checklands in place of the fetches, and Tectonic Edge. 5 fetches can turn into, instead, 1 Hinterland Harbor , 1 Drowned Catacomb , and 1 Woodland Cemetery . You can have then 1 Tectonic Edge and 1 Treetop Village . You can afford two ETB-tapped lands in your deck.

Hypnotic Specter is really strong in this format, and I'd like to see you lose Rancor for it.

I don't think Green Sun's Zenith is that strong when you're only running six green creatures and your likelihood of drawing them is fairly good compared to other things in your deck. I really like Eternal Witness or even Treasured Find in that spot-- generates advantage, gives you something good.

Swords are fine, although Idk how I feel about running two. Tell me how it goes.

In your sideboard I can see having Pernicious Deed and Bow of Nylea . If nothing else Bow keeps you from being milled out and Deed is another wrath effect.

Would you be interested in trading me Fauna Shaman and Momir Vig, Simic Visionary for my Dragonskull Summit , Drowned Catacomb , Howling Mine , and Sulfur Falls ?

Ok, so after trying to budget as much as I can to be able to use this, I've changed a decent bit, and I really want to hear what you think! Here's what I replaced to make the deck a bit cheaper, these cards also consisted of what I actually have and of what I thought would be good:

Breeding Pool -->Hinterland Harbor Godless Shrine -->Isolated Chapel Overgrown Tomb -->Woodland Cemetery Steam Vents -->Sulfur Falls Stomping Ground -->Rootbound Crag Temple Garden -->Sunpetal Grove Watery Grave -->Drowned Catacomb Blood Crypt -->Sulfurous Springs Hallowed Fountain -->Seachrome Coast Supreme Verdict -->Martial Coup Kodama's Reach -->Rampant Growth Cultivate -->Peregrination Detention Sphere -->Oblivion Ring Thrummingbird -->Viral Drake Nevinyrral's Disk -->Fracturing Gust

Did I do okay? As I said, I wanted to make this cheaper while considering what you were going for on each card. I will eventually replace them accordingly depending on what you say, but yeah! There ya go.

Sorry nosoyyucateco, but I decided to not go with the Dictate of Erebos , despite of how awesome a card it is. However, I've made a few changes and I think this deck is really staring to get dialled in. With Call to the Kindred and Endless Ranks of the Dead working together, things get out of hand really quickly. Also, I found Bone Splinters is a really fantastic removal spell when I have so many exposable tokens. Also, Telling Time is a very similar, and much cheaper, option instead of Serum Visions . Finally, I'm currently waiting on a play set of Drowned Catacomb in the mail so I'll finally have some decent land. Thanks for the help as I'm still trying to make this deck as much of a beast as I can!

@alexk100 - you have some great points but let me explain :P

Halimar Depths is a great card but it enters tapped and isn't an island or a swamp (note that Watery Grave is both an island and a swamp). Meaning you couldn't fetch for it and it simply doesn't do what I need the lands to do. Since the biggest combo in this deck is Hedron Crab , the lands are all based off him (except for Ghost Quarter for Archive Trap ) so I don't want to hinder his usage by thinning out the lands that work with him.

Drowned Catacomb is a similar situation as above. It's not a swamp or island. In a different deck, I'd swap it for Darkslick Shores but DS is better for an early start, which is more important here.

Extirpate is a great card. It has been in and out of this deck. I eventually decided to stick to Surgical Extraction as it can be cast without mana. I had back up Extirpate in SB but removed it in favor of the "trap system".

Dream Twist is also a good card, but simply isn't what I need here.

all in all, good suggestions though.

@giesemo - Why thank you. I'm glad I could inspire others what has been inspired in myself. I love milling. I'm glad they found a place for it in magic. Good luck with your deck Price
