Ghitu Encampment Discussion

multimedia on Lovisa Coldeyes rushdown

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Looks nice, good start and a budget of less than $100, well done :)

Lovisa is all about attacking because her ability pumps your creatures therefore you want to have a well established army of creatures before you play Lovisa. You've done a good job with including many two drop and three drop creatures, but 18 four drops and 13 five drops is too much. I also don't think any of the six and seven drops are good enough to risk having one of them stuck in your hand in the early and mid game. My advice is cut a large amount of these cards for more one, two and three drops.

Budget cards $3 or less each to consider adding:

Others to consider:

Can add all these cards for about $18. Also consider adding a few more Mountains as 26 lands is a low total amount. Try 30 Mountains, Ghitu Encampment and Rogues Passage for a total of 32 lands. Temple of the False God is not worth playing in a deck that doesn't have any land ramp. Can't afford to have a land that can't make mana, does nothing, to cast early game two and three drop creatures.

There's a lot of red cards that can give you repeatable pseudo draw each turn; key word here is repeatable. Not draw, but can exile the top card of your library and you may play that card until end of turn. These cards are helpful because mono red has a tendency to run out of cards in your hand fast.

Many of these cards are four drops which means if I was building this deck I would reserve the four drop spots for some of these cards. Experimental Frenzy is good with many low mana cost creatures allowing you to play them from the top of your library. Lovisa gives your creatures haste meaning when you play them from the top of your library you can attack with them. You can potentially chain play a lot of creatures with Frenzy and attack with all of them, that's good with Lovisa.

Countryside Crusher can help to take away a drawback of Frenzy as well as help to not draw so many lands which can happen when playing 30 basic lands. With Frenzy if you hit two lands in a row on the top of your library then you're done playing spells from the top for your turn. Since you can't play more than one land per turn. You're able to play the first land you see on the top of your library, but not the second.

At your upkeep if Crusher sees a land on the top of your library you put it into your graveyard and you can do this as many times in a row as lands you have on top of your library each time Crusher gets bigger. Crusher also can get bigger when you discard land cards such as from Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion or Tormenting Voice, etc.

Good luck with your deck.

I have never heard of that land before hungry000, but I love it; great land for only $0.25! I will definitely add a couple copies of Ghitu Encampment to the main board. Thanks for the upvote and thanks for the help! :)

Love the deck! I see you're considering putting in some Blinkmoth Nexus from your maybeboard (which is a great idea), but if you're worried about budget or something you could try out Ghitu Encampment. 1 more mana to activate and it comes in tapped, but it's a bit less costly.

Have you considered running a few manlands (Ghitu Encampment, Mishra's Factory, Blinkmoth Nexus, Mutavault, etc.) for more polymorph targets?

I just realized that Ghitu Encampment is modern legal. Running a playset of those and a playset of Sunscorched Deserts will definitely increase this win percentage

Since you're pretty low on creatures maybe you could use some Faerie Conclave, Wandering Fumarole, Ghitu Encampment or even Mutavault to hold your swords and give you some resilience.
