To answer your question, by having them in the deck I can use fetchlands as swamps and save them for fatal push having revolt. They also allow silent clearing to be used for mana without costing me life. Lastly, if I so chose I can add colourless lands like Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin. I am still looking to get two more urborgs, four bloodstained mires and four polluted deltas.

This deck is still in a work of progress stage.

Thank you for your suggestion! Polluted Delta seems like a nice addition to the build. I considered to play Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin too, but colored mana is very important because of all the one drops. So i'd rather follow the aggro mill plan.

Manifold Key is (pretty much) a strict upgrade to Voltaic Key, and I'd recommend including some Wastes to have things to fetch from land destruction like Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin, and would allow ramp options like Wayfarer's Bauble. Probably around 5 or so, dumping some of the non-basics that you don't use the activated abilities of very often. Thinking of non-basics, was surprised not to see Temple of the False God, usually a shoe-in for these kinds of decks, but it does definitely have that risk of not being able to actually use it early game.

Naksu, your deck is very similar, if not the same, to what I was trying to do and I got a lot of hints out of it. I'm probably going to run one Westvale Abbey  Flip and Ghost Quarter which are also good for the theme (really important to me). I upvoted it btw. Since you have surely more experience with this kind of deck, I've got a couple of questions:

do you think Doomed Traveler is worth it? I find that it's very easy to play around him. Probably it's better to change it for a 1-cost removal like Path to Exile or Inquisition of Kozilek/Thoughtseize rather than another 1-cost spirit creature. The only one I like is Kami of False Hope cause it can proc Promise of Bunrei at any time.

What do you think of Midnight Haunting and Kaya's Guile? The first could be good to build an heavy Devouring Greed and the second is really versatile.

Last question: I see you use Bontu's Last Reckoning with Selfless Spirit, but since it keeps your lands tapped, couldn't it stop you from playing a maybe topdeck Devouring Greed? Isn't it better to play a 4-cost boardwipe spell?

Anyway, thanks for the interest and for the help.

Hey -- I just put my current incarnation Krenko on here a couple weeks ago and run a few that you might consider:

Not cheap -> Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle it's great but it's $15-20 atm.

Semi-cheap -> Blast Zone, Ramunap Ruins

Cheap -> Dormant Volcano, Forgotten Cave, Desert of the Fervent, Flamekin Village, Ghost Quarter, Field of Ruin.

Don't overdo it though, especially with tapped lands and anything that can't produce , especially in an aggressive build. Flamekin Village and a removal land and maybe one more... Mine's got a little different focus, but for reference here's what I'm toying with: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/krenko-kontrol-theory/ Hope that helps!

metalmagic on Binder Updated, Lots of Expensive ...

1 month ago

Hello again wonderful people of the trading post, I have just finished updating my binder yet again with more cards I have recently acquired. I am always looking to trade, but the cards I am prioritizing over all else are the ones that only have a single copy listed in my Wants. Of course, I will still gladly trade for any of the others in my wants as well, in addition to plenty of cards I may not have listed. I will look through any binders to try to find a potential trade, even if you have nothing from my wants!

Here's a sample of some of the cooler items I added to my binder in this update:

I added many more $10+ and even $20+ cards along with a few cool foils, so check it out! Sort by price to see the good stuff all together.

You need more lands, 30 is not enough. I know it's unexciting, but I'd cut a minimum of 5 spells from your list for lands. They can be lands with utility like Tranquil Thicket, Llanowar Reborn or Ghost Quarter to prevent flooding out.
Also I'm surprised not to see EDH staples such as Sol Ring and Command Tower in your list. Is there a specific reason for their absence?

Femme_Fatale on Synonyms/Nicknames System for Deckbuilding and ...

1 month ago

Introducing the synonyms/nicknames system to alleviate all those "wtf was that one land of that one cycle named?" problems that plague you.

This system is simple. It is designed to redirect terms that you typed out that match a synonym/nickname of a card, to that card name. This lets you never have to remember the name "Seachrome Coast" and can instead just type out "WU Fastland" (as an example). Note that this only works in text edit entries on deck lists and inventory, not the live edit or the card search forms.

There is a lot of other things that are utilised here as well.

  • Godzilla Names
  • Non-American Spellings
  • Common Nicknames
  • Common Misspellings
  • Redirections of Misspelled Submissions
  • Each side of a split card as a synonym (unless they already exist as a card).

Not needing to know the name of each card in a land/artifact cycle is a big boon, but you still need to know the nickname of that cycle and the syntax. For lands/mana rocks/the swords of X and Y at the present moment it is always "XY Nickname" or "YX Nickname". Examples:

  • WU Fastland
  • GR BFZ
  • GW ABUR Dual Land
  • BW Fetch

For 2 colour lands, it is always the two colour letters, followed by the nickname, and then followed by the option to have the world land either connected to the nickname or not. (these are all viable options for example: "WU Fast", "UW Fastland", "UW Fast Land".) For 3 colour lands, it is only the primary order of colour letters you see on cards, or the Alara/Khans name. (WUB Lair, Mardu Triome as examples.) Swords and other artifact cycles follow the same setup (though swords can also be "Sword of GB" or "Sword of G and B"), and mono colour land cycles use the same setup just with only one letter. Note that none of these are plural, so don't put that s in. Colourless cards that are a part of a cycle use C/Colorless/Colourless.

Some of these cycles don't have well defined names yet (like BBD) and some of these cycles have had too many names that people constantly fight over so there was no point in bothering to put them all in and instead I just used the TLA (specifically BFZ).

Goals:

The primary purpose of this is to make the ability to tag cards and edit decks/inventory far more robust than what it has been. Tappedout doesn't presently have a spellchecker, and to be fair most sites don't. It's not an easy feature to implement. So with this synonyms/nicknames feature, we can alleviate some of those aggravations of misspellings or different ways to spell a word by making them valid targets and redirecting them to the right card name. Another benefit of this is the ability to give cards shorthands or nicknames when the community largely doesn't remember the actual name of a card, just their shorthand. We have all been hit with "wtf is that land's name again?" when we know for a fact that it's just "the blue and white shadows over innistrad reveal land". This saves the step of having to open up a search engine to figure out the card name, and in general speeds up and makes the process of building decks and inventory, a lot more enjoyable.


Cycles that currently have nicknames: Show

A lot of the cycle synonyms are meant to intuitive and robust so that you won't even have to think about knowing what the exact written synonym actually is and still be able to get it right on the first try, though it will take time to reach a point in which this is 100% true. As an example of scope, each recognized nickname for a cycle creates 6 entries for each given card in that cycle. So the AKH lands have 30 entries for each card in that cycle, resulting in a total of 150 entries. The Triomes have the same amount, but if I were to add each individual string combination of the colour letters (WUB, BUW, WBU etc) then that count would increase by 45 for each entry, resulting 75 entries for each one, totalling at 375 entries for the whole cycle.


Nicknames will usually be things like "Snappy", "Bolt", "Path", "Bob", "FoW", etc. They are to be commonly used by the larger community as a whole, not what your FNM/play group exclusively uses (though this isn't a hard set in stone as I'm not omniscient).

Here's a list of nicknames that I have. Show

I have about 200+ cards of non-American spellings added as synonyms in this site, however I'm certain there's like, 5x that much I've missed. If you notice a non-american spelling I do not have in, let me know.

Here's a list of things that is in the works to do. Show

Limitations:

A card can have any number of synonyms/nicknames. But only one synonym/nickname can be tied to a card. So if a new card/land cycle gets printed that has covers a misspelling (like an UNcard might) or has that nickname as it's actual card name, those synonyms will get removed (as an example, Snapcaster Mage cannot have Snap as a nickname). We are also looking to limit the amount of times a synonym has to get removed so nicknames of cards during their presence in the standard formats are not likely to be put in, as they become forgotten or even re-used when they rotate out. These are also done manually so sometimes a change might just take a while to do if it encompasses a large number of cards or a large number of synonyms.. We also won't be going through alternate language as possible synonyms because WotC doesn't nearly double check duplicate card names for foreign languages as well as they do for English cards.

This is not something on the card submission form, so it is not available to edit for any user.

If you know of something missing like common misspellings or common non-American spellings that will be needed, or cycle syntaxes that you tried to use but didn't work, post them here and I'll review them for possible inclusion in the future.

EDIT: Before you ask for a nickname etc to be added:

  1. Check if it exists first by trying it out.
  2. Check if the larger community recognizes it, this is done by going around discords, lgs' and other forums about that nickname.
  3. Check if it has any nsfw, discriminatory or derogatory terminology, we straight up will not allow these.

This isn't a system for your pet nickname that your local playgroup uses. This is a system that can utilize nicknames that naturally grew organically out of continued use from the larger mtg community as a whole. This isn't a "which nicknames do you think this system could use" but rather "which nicknames that are used across the world that we have missed".
