Foreboding Ruins Discussion

BioProfDude on Mono-black weenie speed deck (budget)

I do indeed have a red source-- Foreboding Ruins! The haste has been pretty good, and occasionally I do sacrifice to get the cards exiled. It was not in an early version of the deck and I added it at the suggestion of others and it has worked very, very well!

Ya, Lupine Prototype is the card that's leaving once Amonkhet is out. It's a great card for a speed deck, but there are just better cards to replace it in the new set.

Shamble Back may be a sorcery, but it is wickedly good, particularly against decks with recursion (zombies, Scrapheap Scrounger). WAY too much value for !

Fatal Push is only good if I want to lose a creature first-- and I don't.

Thanks for the suggestions!

you shouldn't run any canyon slough. yes they are great cards to cycle. Yes they are going to be great for midrange/control decks. You are neither of these things. You need your lands coming in untapped. You need to have a play on turn 1-5. Every turn using as much mana as needed or you shoot yourself in the foot. use Smoldering Marsh instead. You can hold them until turn 3+ after you have 2 basic lands out. They also act as swamp/mountains for your Foreboding Ruins

Why not Canyon Slough for card draw and reveal fuel for your Foreboding Ruins and Game Trail?

While it does not synergize well with Fetches not being in Standard, it does help out the Innistrad lands like Foreboding Ruins.

You can reveal one of the AKH Mountain-Swamp so Ruins does not enter tapped, then cycle it. Because cycling seems to be an important mechanic in this set, I think they'll be very effective.

Take out Dragonspeaker Shaman and Dragonlord's Servant.Oros, the Avenger and Voice of All are good, and keep in mind that most successful Kaalia decks are mostly Angels. Good budget lands: Shadowblood Ridge Smoldering Marsh Dragonskull Summit Clifftop Retreat Isolated Chapel Foreboding Ruins Temple of Malice Temple of Silence Temple of Triumph Rocky Tar Pit. The fastlands from Scars of Mirrodin and Kaladesh are also good considerations, and for a bit more money, the Shadowmoor/Eventide filterlands are great.

iglesia777 on Another Budget Version of an Eldrazi Aggro Deck

Eldrazi Obligator was one of my fav aggro eldrazi. Just need to add some colorless producing lands like Aether Hub or the more affordable Crumbling Vestige. And I would definitely play Wasteland Strangler. Just great killing an early blocker and adding a threat.

You might as well play 4x Incendiary Flow and drop the Touch of the Void. You don't benefit from it being colorless.

Away from budget, a playset of Foreboding Ruins or Smoldering Marsh would instantly make it better. I always invest in lands first as they make the most difference, and can easily be used in other decks. Good luck!
