Unlife on ug infect: kitchen finks vs ...

1 day ago

As an Infect player, I like both vs burn. If burn is currently your biggest issue, side 2 Wild Defiance and keep both spellskites in. If you're still having issues look at more Dispel , Negate , Spell Pierce etc to side in, so your deck turns more from aggro to control. Personally I'm not a fan of Kitchen Finks , I've always felt it dilutes your wincons but that's up to you. I don't see any reason for nissa, if you want another 3-drop then finks would fit better.

A side note, consider switching Mutagenic Growth for more Apostle's Blessing . They are a lot more flexible and can help shove damage through. I know you don't run a lot of fetches but a mainboard Dryad Arbor is good as an emergency chump block, or to respond to a -2 from Liliana of the Veil

SamsWrath on Cats in Steel

I also forgot to mention Lands. They are a bit on the expensive side of things but, lands such as: Gaea's Cradle , Serra's Sanctum (only if you add a few more enchantments), Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Savannah , Ancient Tomb , Gemstone Caverns and the 7 color-suited fetch lands you can run will really speed things up for this deck.

You should probably remove some of the "enter tapped lands" for lands such as City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Brushland , Flagstones of Trokair (bar-none the best Crop Rotation target), Inventors' Fair (another artifact tutor) and Dryad Arbor (cast Green Sun's Zenith x=0 and get an extra land drop on one of your turns).

Monduck on Prime Chord

Rakdont thanks for the comment!

Raging Ravine is sort of a relic from Kiki-Chord, where it did good work for me. I disagree that this deck can't take advantage of the extra clock when the game stalls; the deck is loaded with small-medium creatures that are getting in chip damage over the course of the game (Noble helps a lot there), plus some legitimate attackers like Resto and Shalai. My theory was that it was close to a free-roll, having just 2 / 22 taplands in colors that could use the fixing anyways probably wouldn't hurt the mana much, but you definitely might be right that the cost isn't worth the benefit. Other stuff I was considering there were Fastlands or Filterlands ( Fire-Lit Thicket ), or possibly Horizon Canopy .

Dryad Arbor is really interesting, and having 1 summoning sick land wouldn't be a big issue if the payoff is there. The only issue is that the payoff currently isn't there; the deck doesn't really have anything good at CMC 1 to search for off of Arbor. I could definitely add a 1-drop for that, but I don't know what it would be. Any ideas?

I have never heard of fetching a Derevi with it. Dorks are bad compared to Dryad Arbor, with GSZ it is a 0 cmc land you can fetch. Hermit Druid is another popular option, where have you been playing cEDH?

You are running Green Sun's Zenith. If you run a Dryad Arbor, you can in theory fetch it on turn one by casting Green Sun's Zenith for .

Dryad Arbor can even pay for it's own Skullclamping cost.

The Dryad Arbor is a bit slower than a standard Forest, though. (Due to summoning sickness.)

Inkmoth_ on Yeva Draw-Grow-Combo Budget

1 week ago

Abzkaban: You are certainly most welcomed! I just want to spread the news that Yeva is something more than she lets up. Also, I removed Dryad Arbor and Deserted Temple which lowered the cost to a little under $200. I will continue chipping away at the overall cost without ever compromising the fundamentals of the deck, so stay tuned! :D

Please get back to me on how she does when you build her, cause she's been an absolute blast to play! Once again, thanks for all the support!

Cafelattis on Temur Booty Gains

The deck looks super sweet! I would love to se it in action! How do you fare against Burn (and decks like Tron and GB Rock?)? Since you gotta a lot of fetches and shocklands and Phyrexian costs, you will probobly deal a lot of dmg to yourself, what do you think of Feed the Clan? It is kinda cheap, and you gain a lot of life. Not super sure about it though but it is just a suggestion. Also, since you mentioned infect, Distortion Strike might be cool, since you cast it and then you can rebound it, also makes your stuff unblockable. Might be redundant since your opponents will probobly be unsure wether to block or not to block. Since you have a couple of things that gives trample. Just Brainstorming a little.

PS: Maybe Dryad Arbor? +1 from me!

kamarupa on 100% Competitive, 100% Loser

1 week ago

Thanks for the +1, M_Malcom. Originally, I had Dryad Arbor in the list, but then I realized it could be used to swing so I swapped it for a Tron land. It occurs to me I might be able to achieve a 100% competitive rating with exclusively lands and that it might be an even more successful loser via self mill/fetch lands, but I think this demonstrates the concept effectively enough.
