Drownyard Temple Discussion

zjepsen on Agent. Xantcha, Sleeper Agent.

I like what you've doing here. I was thinking of trying a similar version of Xantcha that eschewed the standard fare of quasi-aikido/punisher effects.

A few suggestions: Words of Waste is in some other Xantcha lists, but it seems particularly on point here, especially paired with Waste Not or Geth's Grimoire to recoup the loss of the draw.

Drownyard Temple becomes discard fodder into mid-game ramp.

Runehorn Hellkite becomes discard fodder into a late-game wheel effect.

That's all I've got for now. I'll likely reference your list for what I'll end up brewing. Thanks for putting it together.

Cascading Cataracts, Temple of Enlightenment, Rogue's Passage, Halimar Depths, Drownyard Temple, Deserted Temple.

If your goal is to get Noyan out as fast as possible, why is there so little ramp? A few that come to mind: Commander's Sphere replaces itself when faced with removal/becomes superfluous. Azorius Signet because signets are phenomenal, Azorius Keyrune is a creature when you want it to be.

Feroz's Ban, Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, and the like protect you. Granted, they aren't instants or sorceries but they warrant consideration.

Oh, and Darksteel Garrison.

I forgot to mention it in my last comment, but Drownyard Temple can do a lot of work when paired with Constant Mists.

elgosu1337 on Competitive Lord Windgrace Lands Win cEDH

You should probably cut the cycling lands and play all the relevant fetches. Even if you run out of lands to fetch, they continue to provide landfall and land sacrifice triggers. Squandered Resources is a must to provide a burst of mana. Storm Cauldron is really good since it makes it hard for opponents to tap lands to cast spells. Multani should be cut.

I think if your playgroups have problems with land destruction, then they aren't really cEDH. You definitely need more infinite combos and stax and cheap removal to play at a cEDH level as well. I wouldn't classify my Windgrace deck as cEDH, but you can definitely check it out for lots of combo ideas to win as early as turn 3. You could use Dakmor Salvage for the infinite combo with Gitrog. Drownyard Temple can also give infinite landfall, especially if you have Ashnod's Altar to sacrifice landfall tokens.

I saw another guy who was doing the Elementals and lands thing as well but he had Horde of Notions as his commander. Anyway, you could try Coat of Arms and Shared Animosity to make your Elemental tokens bigger. Pitiless Plunderer makes more mana when your creatures die. Embodiment of Fury and Embodiment of Insight can turn your lands into Elementals before you sacrifice them.

If you're running Animate Dead, you might as well add in Worldgorger Dragon which gives you infinite landfall and hence infinite tokens to sacrifice.

Drownyard Temple should also easily give you infinite landfall if you sacrifice the tokens to Ashnod's Altar.

You can take a look at the writeup for my Windgrace deck for more land dancing ideas.

You could add other ways of dealing damage from landfall for redundancy, like Retreat to Hagra and Tunneling Geopede, or adding Ashnod's Altar or Altar of Dementia for Omnath's elementals. To get infinite landfall with Valakut, you could try Worldgorger Dragon with Animate Dead or Dance of the Dead. Drownyard Temple works with some token generators and Ashnod's Altar. Life and Limb with Sporemound also works if you cast Prismatic Omen after Life and Limb.

Finally managed to concoct a Windgrace deck blending together most of the other lands-matter legendaries. This is a land sacrifice, recursion, discard, bounce, and animation engine with lots of ways to get infinite landfall, like Sporemound with Life and Limb, Drownyard Temple with Stone-Seeder Hierophant, Mirrorpool with Titania and Amulet of Vigor, Nim Deathmantle to sacrifice animated lands, or Cloudstone Curio to keep replaying and reusing Lord Windgrace and Nissa, Worldwaker. Of course, the classic Dakmor Salvage infinite discards with Gitrog is included, with Borborygmos Enraged as a discard outlet for infinite damage. It's also an all permanents version for Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire and Primal Surge.
