Gaea's Blessing Discussion
4 weeks ago
I would lessen the number of Gaea's Blessing to one, Mausoleum Secrets to two, and Murderous Cut to two or three. From there you can add more creatures such as Prized Amalgam , maybe a Syr Konrad, the Grim as honorary Liliana's Indignation s, and possibly Gurmag Angler to beat into the opponent. Any way to increase your creature count to increase the power of your Indignations. Cycling creatures could prove worthwhile for both finding Indignation and increasing its power such as Windcaller Aven and Street Wraith . Lastly more mill rocks could prove worthwhile as it will make Creeping Chill and Narcomoeba better, things like Shriekhorn

Not to sure how much of a boost you want from Biomass Mutation but Hadana's Climb Flip could be a better match for what you're looking for. I would kick vraska for your Gaea's Blessing I'm sure if I scoured the internet I could find a suitable replacement for her if there was a particular reason you needed her. Bow of Nylea static ability could make up for Vraska the Unseen +1 ability.

The mana dorks in the deck seem a bit high cmc for the value. Specifically Joraga Treespeaker, considering you have to pay three mana to turn it on. I'd consider replacing it for Llanowar Tribe if you want mana for cmc value. Elvish Spirit Guide is dead, I'd say, 60% of the time. Boreal Druid gives one colorless, I believe Arbor Elf would be a better slot for colored mana. Gaea's Blessing is another shuffle trigger that can also work as utility.

You can always keep going in response to interaction if people are responding to discarding Dakmor. After they pass priority, you can respond by discarding an additional land as you described, but you don't need to use Skirge as your discard outlet for this, as Gitrog's "draw a card" trigger always goes on top of the discard outlet's "activation" ( Noose Constrictor 's +1/+1 effect etc. ).
For that reason, it's often a pretty bad choice for an opponent to attempt disrupting the combo in response to discarding Dakmor. Once you have gotten Dakmor back, you're back "in control" for the rest of the line, unless someone decides to respond again. Every land you have in hand will blank one instance of removal or grave hate, in that sense (unless they try this at a specific time, see the paragraph below).
The most consistent way for an opponent to respond to the "draw-my-deck" line is by using a mix of two grave-exiling and/or creature-removing effects in response to each of the deck's two shuffle triggers. By using one interaction effect in response to both the Eldrazi titan and Gaea's Blessing , the Gitrog player will not be able to continue going off, unless they have a way to put one of the shufflers back to their library from their graveyard at instant speed ( Noxious Revival being the most prevalent example there ). However, this requires them to have a very specific card in hand as opposed to a land card, which makes this a more reliable way to stop Gitrog from being "in control" of the whole situation.

Ok... So lets start with the obvious... You are a lands matters deck and you only have 36 lands... That's a problem. 39 at the bare minimum.
Next you have a lot of creatures and creatures aren't the best way to do land destruction or win in a lands matters deck.
Lastly I don't feel like you have a clear win con. I mean sure you can beat face with Terravore and Multani but against anyone with a decent deck that'll never connect. Might I suggest something like this? The Gitrog Monster + Seismic Assault + Dakmor Salvage and one eldrazi titan or Gaea's Blessing in the deck. You infinitely discard to SA and machine gun all players to death.
Anyways here are some cards I'd suggest cutting
- Centaur Vinecrasher
- Chainer, Nightmare Adept
- Charnelhoard Wurm
- Ob Nixilis, the fallen
- Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar/Terravore
- Turntimber Sower
- Wake Of Destruction
- Rhythym of the Wild
- Scute Mob
And not nessecarily a cut but an alternative, instead of Chromatic Lantern I'd suggest Prismatic Omen as you can do a lot of fun things with that like Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle , Carpet of Flowers , and lastly the 3 different types of Boil .
Any who let me know if you have any questions for why I suggested the cuts!

So Gaea's Blessing does the exact same thing as Kozilek, Butcher of Truth in the shuffle hulk piles except that it costs 2, not 10, so you can run Ad Nauseam and not just kill yourself. But if you're not running Ad Naus, both is good redundancy. But yeah, Gaea's Blessing forms the combo.
So just for clarity's sake (And I'm sure you know all of this) but the line for the deck is:
There's also a line you can get which is:
I have also seen people talk about including Cloud of Faeries in the deck in case you have any of the combo pieces in hand. Somebody was also talking about using Whirlpool Rider (instead of Grand Abolisher ) in the previous line to just reshuffle the pieces in.
As for Shrodinger's Cat - the line is:
Get Leonin Relic-Warder in the graveyard with Blood Artist / Zulaport Cutthroat in play and then either Animate Dead or Necromancy the cat. with the ETB trigger, off Warder, you can then exile the enchantment, sending kitty to the graveyard, which triggers the LTB ability which returns the enchantment to play, targetting kitty... I think you get the rest.
The nice thing about this package is that Necromancy is in the deck already, Animate Dead is an easy include and so you're really just adding Leonin Relic-Warder (which is still enchantment removal, especially with stacking triggers from something like Viscera Seer ). So for one extra card you have a backup combo which overlaps with the other cards.

I'm also interested why you've decided to run the traditional Dread Return line, as this combo is kind of negated by Kozilek, Butcher of Truth . Assuming uninteractive opponents it's not so back as you can keep milling as required with reshuffle, but this gets much messier if there are any responses.

wallisface thanks for the the input.
for the craterhoof behemoth problem, i was thinking of using Gaea's Blessing or Noxious Revival if it lands in the graveyard. some scrying would be nice to prevent me of drawing craterhoof. just put it on the bottom. and its propably wisest to play more than one craterhoof.
i put in Thragtusk so i could neoform something from Frogmite , but i am not against scrapping those if i need place for something else. thragtusk is just a good card for stalling the game, cause of the live gain and being able to block and "replace" itself upon dying.
24 lands is what i normaly play. i am looking into the manabase of other affinty decks to adjust and notice that most of them even run fewer lands than 20 i was hesitant to throw in Mox Opal s into the deck, because of the high cost, but since i realised that i could could create the ideal version of this deck tey are going in ;P
