Heliogabale, it's that says it's illegal, if you look along the sidebar of this deck. I'm guessing they must have it wrong, I don't see how it could be broken enough to be banned. Thanks for taking a look.

KayneMarco, it's funny you should say that - I just removed Primeval Titan to make Avatar of Growth the one illegal card, yesterday. I had Primeval in there to search for my "search engine" lands—Field of Ruin & Ghost Quarter—because they'll make other people search their library. This mandatory search for opponents is the core of this deck, to trigger the ability of Ob Nixilis, Unshackled. I had enough in there to grab those lands and Avatar of Growth gives me another mandatory "search engine" that'll make OTHERS search their library, trigger Ob Nixilis. So, he's a direct part of the win-con rather than just another enabler, where primeval would just be there for setup. If it turns out is wrong though, and Avatar isn't illegal as Heliogabale found, I'll be putting Primeval Titan back in, for sure! Thank you!

hkhssweiss, oh man! there's an idea... Imagine having Maralen of the Mornsong out, then taking their turn using the tutor trigger of Maralen to search for a tutor card? Wow! If I can find a few other sure-fire ways to make sure I can use their turn to tutor, I will give this some very serious thought. Thats extra jank. Gold star for you.

True our mana base could probably be less greedy but I think that requires playing less greedy colors; we have double white, green, AND black. Also we have tons of green fetchlands to ensure Utopia Sprawl gets a basic Forest so it doesn't die to an ordinary Field of Ruin. I'd welcome suggestions for fixing that.

Ghost Quarter acts as another Field of Ruin effect, and works as a second Strip Mine with the Crucible of Worlds effects!

Hi Chasmolinker, Yes the TS is in over the 4th IoK thanks to meta. I thought about running the Twilight Mire instead of the Wooded Foothills but the fetch helps thin out the deck some, and with Field of Ruin being something in the meta, I think the fetch is more helpful. But it is something to think about.

TheAlexGnan the last few days I've been testing game 3 vs Tron whenever I have 5 minutes (with Tron sideboarded to the best of my ability). I have a decent win percentage (I haven't been tracking) but not as good as I think is necessary. I'm surprised and impressed that you're 6-6.

Surgical Extraction without a ld effect is really bad. And surgical with ld still leaves me way down on cards. I've actually lost quite a few games because I stumbled after getting them off of Tron, which seems a bit awkward.

For now I'm going up to 2 Field of Ruin and 4 Fulminator Mage and 4 Anger of the Gods in the sideboard. It's probably not correct to be all-in on those cards, but I won't know for sure unless I test a bit.

We also have Damping Sphere available. From the testing I've done with it before, it is actually really effective. They can get around it by hardcasting (like always) or with Oblivion Stone, but it might be worth looking into doing a 2-2 Fulminator-Damping split.

Disdainful Stroke is fantastic vs Tron and I can imagine how good it is vs Primeval Titan, however I really think I'll miss the extra Countersquall vs burn and storm. I'm not sure which is more relevant, but I suspect the Countersquall will win me over in the end.

I dropped the 2nd Countersquall because I found I was flooding on counterspells a little bit too much vs tron, which is a problem I noticed when playing Delver.

Honestly I might just run with the aggro idea for now and throw in 2x Goblin Trashmaster to beef up the other goblins. Memorial to War could be good along with Field of Ruin. Otherwise I'd like to keep it mono-red for the simpler mana base. Down the road I might go for a more controlling multi-color build though.

Here's some land recommendations to both speed up the deck and give them more utility. All recommendations are under $20.

Lands to swap:
Sunken Hollow instead of Rupture Spire
Underground River instead of Shimmering Grotto
Morphic Pool instead of Transguild Promenade
Drowned Catacomb instead of Grixis Panorama
Tainted Isle instead of Esper Panorama

Since you don't need to fetch a lot of basics, I'd swap a few basics for dual lands to ensure you always have your colors, ~10 basics is more than enough for a deck
Creeping Tar Pit
Dimir Guildgate
Darkslick Shores
Dreadship Reef
Secluded Glen

Utility Lands worth including:
Arcane Lighthouse
Temple of the False God
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
Field of Ruin
Ghost Quarter
Inventors' Fair
Ash Barrens
Isolated Watchtower
Tolaria West (Transmute this land, to fetch another one you need)
Crypt of Agadeem
Reflecting Pool
Spire of Industry
Shizo, Death's Storehouse
Hall of the Bandit Lord

Ghost Quarter is really nice, but it's already hard to make a three color manabase with four Field of Ruin.

I will add Aven Mindcensor. Really forgot this dude. :-)
