Gaea's Blessing Discussion
1 day ago
Hi, I have a Gitrog deck of my own. What I think would improve your deck:
Mesmeric Orb It's a bit pricey but amazing with gitrog as the milling is done one card at a time.
Gaea's Blessing If you happen to mill it you'll shuffle Graveyard with Library, this is a the third layer of protection to avoid milling myself to death which happened to me several times before with previous builds of this deck.
Key to the City Discard a card to smash your opponent with Gitrog or your biggest creature, was it a land? the draw a card, and another on your upkeep. This card has become a staple of many of my decks.
Roar of Challenge kill up to six creatures of an opponent thanks to Gitrog's Deathtouch.
Constant Mists I almos feel bad using this card with Gitrog... almost!
Spitting Spider and Grotesque Hybrid to have some dissuade flyers of coming my way and another land sac outlet and discard outlet.
Stinkweed Imp another great flyer dissuader with high Dredge, I don't run it anymore on this deck because discarding it over and over to Skirge Familiar and finishing the game with Exsanguinate wasn't my playstyle, so I took most of the dredge and discard outlets.
Herald of Leshrac Hi, can I borrow your land for a while... ups, it broke!

I like it! It's definitely possible. The only problem with Gaea's Blessing in the Storm Template shell is what you mentioned where the graveyard will potentially keep shuffling back into the library. That's not necessarily a bad thing as long as you are able to keep hitting permanents in the graveyard but it's more variance. It seems like, assuming you also have a discard outlet, you might want to tutor out Gaea's Blessing as well as Bitter Ordeal to ensure that you don't start shuffling until you're ready. Of course that makes things a bit slower but you'd be sure to get what you want without the variance.
Maybe more of a control shell would support it because of its speed? I'm not really sure though. You could definitely support it with the rest of the combo pieces gone.

Yeah I was thinking if there were different janky things that could be done with Inverter of Truth or Paradigm Shift with the shell of this deck. Then I thought, wait, Eternal Scourge + Food Chain Bitter Ordeal + Sidisi, Brood Tyrant in conjunction with having Gaea's Blessing in your Graveyard is an indefinite/infinite mill combo, since your casting Sidisi "infinitely" each time you hit Gaea's Blessing it shuffles you're entire graveyard, including itself back into your library allowing you to do it to the desired amount racking up the "Gravestorm" count on Bitter Ordeal to one's desire, given you hard tutored for Bitter Ordeal, and haven't drawn Gaea's Blessing.
However you did mention the potential variance of drawing Gaea's Blessing which would slow/hinder the Bitter Ordeal combo down. If one wanted to lean more towards this combo within the shell of this deck, all you have to do is add redundancy at that point. Along with Gaea's Blessing you could also throw in the deck Kozilek, Butcher of Truth Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn to increase your probability of not drawing out the ability to reshuffle your graveyard into your library, which is obviously part of the main engine for Bitter Ordeal. I think I'm going to basically use the shell of your deck, in essence but going to use the Bitter Ordeal combo so I don't feel like I'm completely deck teching.
I feel the Bitter Ordeal combo is a bit slower, and takes a bit more time to set up. If I were to focus mostly on this combo, I would have to follow your Storm Wincon template. I think the best way to set it up is also hard tutoring for Bitter Ordeal If we don't hard tutor for Bitter Ordeal we can just aim to begin milling ourselves immediately, at this point I would only want say, Gaea's Blessing in the library with no Eldrazi's, because we hope to mill ourselves into Dread Return along with Bitter Ordeal + Eternal Witness in the graveyard, otherwise we're sitting here playing the shuffle/mill game for each time we hit Gaea's Blessing UNTIL we hit Dread Return WITH Bitter Ordeal + Eternal Witness in the graveyard bringing back Eternal to fetch Bitter.
In conclusion if I were to go Bitter Ordeal combo, the more practical way to do it would be to also tutor out Bitter putting it in hand, along with something that allows you to discard a card incase you drew into, or started with Gaea's Blessing in hand. I really want to emphasize on this combo using your deck as a shell, which would probably result in tweaking the deck with some stuff to make Bitter Ordeal the main focus. If one did not hard tutor for Bitter. I could go with Food Chain+Eternal Scourge+Sidisi+Viscera Seer+A sac outlet on board. Milling a bunch for each time we hit Gaea's Blessing, creating a lot of tokens. Then start saccing tokes to scry dig until we reach Bitter and want to draw into it. Idk definitely some playing around with the deck for an efficient Bitter Ordeal build, but I feel it's possible?

I think my only concern with Paradigm Shift and Inverter of Truth is that the remaining cards shuffle into the library so I can't stack them. Paradigm Shift looks really fun at 2cmc though. Definitely something I'd like to brew with.
I really like the Bitter Ordeal combo since it's exile and not straight mill. I also like Gaea's Blessing a lot but the variance of drawing it is what has stopped me from using it. I'd feel more comfortable running ways to discard it if I draw it. Or more cards like Brainstorm/Memory's Journey or even Reclaim to get it back into the library. This combo definitely works in the deck's shell though!

Just play old Ulamog/Kozilek/Gaea's Blessing. They won't be able to win.

Cool deck - my son ran a similar lands list.
Knight of the Reliquary seems like a missing creature, and maybe a named Eldrazi or two since you have so much land?

Very cool to see mill strategy in these colors.
Maybe a Path to Exile?
Finally, some blink effects (like Momentary Blink) or Wastes and other colorless-man-producing lands + an Eldrazi Displacer would make your Sun Titan super valuable through recursion of its ETB effect.
Have fun brewing!

Hah. After investigating Gaea's Blessing, I assumed I wouldn't need it as I was not milling myself. Then I realised Mesmeric Orb effected myself, as well as everyone else. Nice catch. You definitely start to commit to the mill including the pair. Including self-mill, which I've avoided up to this stage.
I think I'll sideboard them for my next night and give them a spin for a single game and see what the product is
