From the Ashes


Destroy all nonbasic lands. For each land destroyed this way, its controller may search his or her library for a basic land card and put it onto the battlefield. Then each player who searched his or her library this way shuffles it.

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!

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?

Might I suggest From the Ashes, this will work well with Titana, Protector of Argoth. You will also be able to play your lands again with Crucible of Worlds and Ramunap Excavator.

Hey Ocelot44 I definitely appreciate the land help! At the moment I think I'll be keeping Darksteel Garrison because it's a part of an increibly janky combo with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and From the Ashes. It may never actually happen but I think it'll be worth trying for a while. Also, the additional +1+1 it gives may end uo being clutch when Kamahl needs that extra booty.

You have made me realize that i may as well slide in some more indestructible nonbasics though. The haste lands seem redundant and unecessary at the moment because Kamahl aready has haste--and I only have two other creatures in the deck.

I've had my eye on the Sanitarium and Mikokoro for a while. I'll wait a while until I can imvest in Scroll Rack, Mikokoro, and Hall of the Bandit Lord.

You bring up 3 additional great points with Goblin Welder, Inventors' Fair, and Trading Post. I already own all three of them so I'm thinking I'll try them out. If you're feeling up to it I'd like to hear what you would take out to make room for the welder, trading post, and valduk (this especially seems great since i have a good amount of equipment and im running Sundial of the Infinite so I can keep the tokens he makes!).

Thanks again :)

Note to self. I had forgotten about From the Ashes. That's the perfect balanced kind of effect to punish those extra greedy mana bases for this variant.

Remember folks, basic lands are a GOOD THING.
