Field of Ruin Discussion

Love it! Personally, I hate Riverwise Augur, I found way more success with Monastery Mentor. Yes, the fish brainstorm, but quite often I found even that underwhelming and that hard cast miracles and some additional counters, removal; or aggro were better. Same with Telling Time, players of Opt and Serum Visions were better and it was underwhelming. I'm a big fan of Cast Out since it allows you to miracle and deal with any non-land threat, and Precognition Field, but my build is a bit heavier on the instant and groceries, I also don't own Jace or Snaps.

Field of Ruin is something you'll want, and Prairie Stream is better than port, especially in field of ruin decks. 24 lands is also better since you are running a few walkers.

Hope you're loving it though, it's a fun archetype

Zhalfirin Void seems better than Field of Ruin in an aggro deck, and I bet you can even cut a couple lands for more burn/removal.

Hey, B/W Knights splashing Steel Leaf Champion, haha...

I think Abzan can work because you can have 3-4x Chapel, 3-4x Sunpetal, some Cemetery and 4x Concealed Courtyard for the manabase, but playing Champion with this manabase is too ambitious counting too much on having Song to cast Champion. Marshal is the better three drop here because he's white and because he can pump Knight tokens from History. I suggest more Marshal less Champion. I like the two drop Knight tandem of Grace and Malice I think that's a good reason to play black with Knights. Kwende and Aryel are not needed, they don't do enough for four mana. Consider cutting them for more Marshal, Grace and Malice? Dauntless Bodyguard is a good one drop and is a Knight. Danitha is also not doing much here because she can't reduce the cost of History or Song since they aren't auras. Consider cutting her and something else for 4x Bodyguard?

Consider this midrange creature base:

  • 4x Bodyguard
  • 4x Grace
  • 4x Malice
  • 2x Shanna
  • 4x Marshal
  • 3x Shalai
  • 1-2x Lyra

This midrange base gives you early game, mid game and late game. As for the manabase if playing Marshal then you want as little as possible lands that can't make white mana. Ideally you want all lands to make white, but this is not realistic with three colors.

Consider this manabase:

  • 5x Plains
  • 1x Forest
  • 1x Swamp
  • 4x Courtyard
  • 4x Sunpetal
  • 3x Chapel
  • 3x Scattered
  • 2x Cemetery

The only reason I've included 1x Forest and 1x Swamp is because of Field of Ruin which is very good at crippling three color manabases without basic lands. Vraska's Contempt is going to be too hard to cast with this manabase example and with your current manabase; counting on Song to be able to cast a card is not good. You'll need more than 11 sources of black to cast a double black card. Consider Cast Out instead of Contempt? It can exile a Planeswalker, creature or any other nonland permanent. The cycling is a nice bonus.

Good luck with your deck.

With the number of Field of Ruin in my meta, I need wastes. I mean, i could grab islands or swamps, but that would give the game away somewhat.

Cut both akromas, baneslayer, burnished hart, kokusho, utter end

I prefer Field of Ruin over Ghost Quarter because it forces the Archive Trap trigger.

Here's how I would start on a midrange blue deck with focus on your favourite sphinx. I tried not to bring any cards that only allow for looking at the topcard, and apart from that just quality blue dudes. Plan for the deck is to stay alive (and it might need more and better stay-alive cards) until some kind of card machine starts rolling - either Magus of the Future og sphinx + top-deck-spying.

Perhaps grand architect feels a bit lonely, either needing something like Chasm Skulker or more Master of Waves, to make tokens to buff, or something artifact to help cast.

Looking to change sets on a couple cards. Also looking for a handful of cards.

Looking to change sets:

  • Steam Vents: RTR -> GPT
  • Blood Crypt: RTR -> DIS
  • Collective Brutality: EMN -> prerelease promo (it has my birthday printed on it)

For the cards I want, I'm interested in any condition (except for collective brutality I'd like NM/LP).

My biggest haves are 2x Wasteland and 1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. One of my Wastelands is crimped along the top from the package sealer. Completely playable, but still a misprint. Pictures available if interested.

In addition, my priority wants are:

I also have a bunch of other wants and haves in my binder
