Oh, and you could upgrade Encroaching Wastes with Dust Bowl!

I agree, I'm currently running Strip Mine/Wasteland/Dust Bowl, Wildfire, and Decree of Annihilation as well, I think she should be a great fit!

Haha, gotcha, well I'm good then. Also, I forgot I was commenting on a non-EDH format, which is also outside my usual knowledge base anyway... different interactions, timelines, etc... You know, those longer lasting EDH games can definitely see some change with a selective thinning effect running unchecked :) (I'm pretty infamous for that in my meta).

  • I almost made a smarmy comment on your Balan deck about wishing for a self-replacing target for your Dust Bowl... but I figured you've heard enough about the Flagstones :)

Dust Bowl has a repeatable effect. I can sacrifice another land to pop a utility land and have Dust Bowl remain to pressure the next one.

Any particular reason why you run Dust Bowl instead of Wasteland?

Smokestack, and Winter Orb would make this deck pretty cancerous. You can also consider cards like Wasteland, Strip Mine, Dust Bowl, and Ramunap Excavator, Crucible of Worlds. Dont exactly know what your play style is, but cards like Natural Order, and Eldritch Evolution are also great.

Just throwing up some ideas, lemme know what you think?

Yeah 37 lands + Ramunap Excavator was to greedy. I had to add a Land back (Dust Bowl) and added Life from the Loam, for more stability. I am not going to add cyclelands or Intuition any time soon, since that would be a super slow engine and this deck does not need that. Intuition could be interesting since, i am running 2 lands, that can combo with Leovold and i am running enough LD on Lands. On the other Hand, this would be slow as well.

Treachery left the Deck, for Sword of Feast and Famine. I think, since you can separate casting and equip over two turns, this will help the deck, to be more manaefficient. Also it protects Leovold and allows me to stay at home and block without losses against most decks. Spellskite came back to the party for similar reasons.

Since Zurgo is on a decline, i decided to cut Collective Brutality (A card, that never made me happy), Simic Charm (Was more of a filler, then in the deck for a specific reason) and Vampire Nighthawk. Compared to the rest of the deck, i could not justify running a creature that had such an low impact on the board.

Final addition is Thragtusk. I wanted another lifegain in the deck and since Treachery was cut, i could convince my self, that a 5-drop should be ok for the deck. Also i saw this video on youtube and it reminded me of the power of this card.


Hypnotic Specter could be very interesting. But i think, he might be to slow and only good vs other controldecks. Wydwen looks to slow to me, i would rather play Notion Thief.

I haven't checked to see if anyone else has suggested this, but have you considered running Trading Post? It's got extreme versatility and does a lot of things that really help you

Also with Inspiring Statuary, your equipment will all be turned into mana rocks, and you can do some funky shenanigans with Static Orb

Has anyone else suggested either Strip Mine or Dust Bowl? Land hate can be important
