This deck looks really sweet! I've been trying to tune my list for awhile and I cannot believe I didn't have From the Ashes in there. Have you considered running Eternity Vessel ? I just saw that in someone else's list and it seems like a great way to mitigate all the damage you will be taking and stay ahead of your opponents on life, and the beauty of it is it's not life gain so things like Sulfuric Vortex wont stop it!

It's an unpopular opinion. But I really enjoy LD and even MLD when it is only targeting nonbasic lands. I run a lot of basics for budget purposes. I find it adds a little spice to the game and encourages others to not just run max efficiency land bases. Wave of Vitriol is one of my favorite cards. As long as you not getting too much hate for it, I'm totally on board with From the Ashes here to re-assert yourself at a table that has gotten ahead of you.

Joe_Ken_ on Changes based on local meta

So I've been wanting to make some changes in my Aurelia deck to have more interaction and effect on my local meta. Cards that I've been considering adding in are From the Ashes , Hero of Bladehold , and Vandalblast

My reasoning for From the Ashes is because I have a few three color decks in my local group and a five color deck that runs no basic lands and tends to win a lot by ramping until he can get Approach of the Second Sun off twice in one turn. I also want to have it in the deck for it's interaction with Emeria Shepherd to potentially get a lot of stuff out of my graveyard from the landfall triggers.

Other than that Hero of Bladehold is something I've wanted to test to make the deck faster and Vandalblast is primarily for the mass artifact destruction to simply have some more interaction.

Here is my decklist and I would really appreciate some feedback on what I could potentially swap out.

Storm Cauldron seems like a shoe-in for this type of deck.

Tectonic Instability maybe?

From the Ashes if your meta plays with a bunch of nonbasics.

Awesome deck!
I know this isn’t much but I like to run Darksteel Garrison on Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and then cast From the Ashes to sling a nice bit of damage. Kind of a janky combo, but an idea if it suits you!

This is awesome!

I run a janky combo revolving around Valakut in my Kamahl, Pit Fighter deck. It involves putting Darksteel Garrison on to Valakut, and then cast From the Ashes when you have the correct number of mountains out. Not sure if you have the slots but I think this is something you could try!

runelord on From the Ashes + Leonin ...

If I Have Leonin Arbiter in play and I cast From the Ashes and one of my opponents has no mana available to pay the search fee, are they allowed to fetch their basic lands?
