Dust Bowl Discussion

SufferFromEDHD on Lands of Meletis

Dust Bowl, Thespian's Stage for utility but especially Valakut, Academy Ruins + Expedition Map seems useful.

Cycling lands seem really strong with Life from the Loam

Planar Birth for landfall triggers.

Gush, Deprive, Rewind utility spells centered around lands.

Tunnel Ignus to punish grouphug ramp.

Patron of the Moon!

If you want a way to deal with opponents’ lands without expending your own, then there’s always Field of Ruin. Faith's Fetters can deal with problem lands too, although it doesn’t stop Cabal Coffers or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. There’s always good old Stone Rain too

I still recommend Strip Mine and Dust Bowl first though! They’re so good because they don’t take up nonland card slots!

I think one of our problems is that we don’t see eye to eye on hate cards. I LOVE cards like Blood Moon, Rest in Peace, Aven Mindcensor, Torpor Orb etc because they all punish degenerate decks! It brings me so much joy to drop a hate card because it helps me just as much as any other card that only helps me - by hurting everyone else

Aura of Silence is exactly like that. You’re wrong about it being a 1:1 answer card because it prevents players from doing everything they want in a turn. No matter what, it deters further threats, and once someone plays something that you don’t like, you can just blow it up!

You can also think about it this way - hitting your opponents in the face with Kalemne doesn’t help you, it only hurts your opponents. Hate cards are no different

Anyways that’s just me - I’m not here to tell you to build a certain deck or play a certain way, I just want you to know where I come from :)

Good to see someone else who shares my love of Kalemne! :)

You can't really afford to lose to a Ghostly Prison effect, so you might want to consider running more Disenchant effects. Aura of Silence is incredible because it taxes your opponents' mana until it gets rid of something, and it wombo combos with Sun Titan! I've also had great success with Nahiri, the Harbinger and Wear / Tear. I've never personally run this, but a classic Kalemne card is Ingot Chewer because you can evoke him and still get an EXP counter!

Maze of Ith and Kor Haven will also cause you problems, so some land destruction should be added in case anyone in your meta starts running these. Strip Mine and Dust Bowl are both classic and reliable

I really like @Ivogel's recommendation of Possibility Storm because I've run it before, and let me tell you, it immediately pisses off everyone else at the table (especially control players) and the value that you can get from double EXP counters is real! Highly recommend trying it out sometime!

To me, it doesn't look like you're running enough draw. If you ever want to add more, I've had great success with Reforge the Soul, Magus of the Wheel, and Howling Mine if you can't afford a Wheel of Fortune

Boros Charm effects are invaluable in just about every Boros deck, and I'm a huge advocate of Leave / Chance and Legion's Initiative

It looks to me like you aren't running enough draw. If you can't afford Wheel of Fortune, then Puresteel Paladin, Magus of the Wheel, Howling Mine, and maybe even Wheel of Fate are all good options

If you ever want another Boros Charm effect, I'm a big fan of Leave / Chance because it also protects against sacrifice and exile and is also a Brand effect

You're also gonna need some land destruction just in case someone drops a Maze of Ith or Kor Haven. If Strip Mine and Dust Bowl are out of your budget range, then Tectonic Edge isn't bad, and Field of Ruin and Ghost Quarter aren't too bad either. Maybe even Avalanche Riders if you want to keep up the creature theme

cyclinggamer on Muldrotha, permanent control

3 weeks ago

Played Mudrotha 1v1 versus a Dino deck. Had lock-down by T3, Ramunap Excavator + Dust Bowl.

Guy was stuck. So he scooped.

Multiple angles of control.

Really solid list with a nice land base. 3 suggestions: Ancient Tomb, Dust Bowl and Flagstones of Trokair.

How is Vraska, Golgari Queen doing for you? What do you sac to her ability? I am also interested in the performance of Yahenni's Expertise. I my builds it was always a letdown. I replaced it with Languish

Riptide Laboratory seems odd to me. In my opinion its only good in control vs control Matchups and there it is more important to control what kind of lands your opponent has. Dust Bowl is for me the better fit.
