shadowmage on Ezuri, Renegade Leader Combo Elves *Primer*

cool deck.. you should drop a forest for Homeward Path .. if someone steals your ezuri in this current build you have no way of getting it back.

I would also cut a few of the dead elves like Essence Warden and Wellwisher for some protection. you seriously will get blown out if you play against blue or red and so you need cards like Veil of Summer and Heroic Intervention .. these will help push your spells through and the intervention will protect you from a board wipe (and also protect your lands)

I would drop cryptolith rite for Lignify because you have basically no removal. If someone drops a Linvala, Keeper of Silence youre basically toast

Since Geth is a huge mana sink, I like to play a lot of mana accelerators, like Gauntlet of Power , Caged Sun , Nirkana Revenant , Crypt Ghast , etc. It also makes Swamp better than most non-basic lands you can draw, which in turn will make your Cabal Stronghold better, which also makes Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth unnecessary, as I don't really like it in mono black. I really don't get Homeward Path as it will give back everything Geth takes. If it's ever useful, you're probably so far behind it won't matter. Just a couple basic thoughts, that hopefully will give you something to consider. If you want to see mine, which I have iterated over the past couple of years, it's Geth, EDH. Though obviously, it's a little pricey.

n0bunga I personally think a large number of those cards could be dropped. I am not a huge fan of Phyrexian Tower or Homeward Path .

Hey BS-T,

Thanks for your help. I've already added in, Hall of Heliod's Generosity . I'll probably keep in Homeward Path for now, as I haven't really played much at my LGS and have only seen a few decks.


Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey CasualCucumber,

Thanks for your comment. I don't like Mind's Eye because I feel it's too expensive for what it does, and I might be able to find better ways to draw cards consistently.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey K1ngMars,

Thanks for your comment. I agree with you, I'll be definitely be adding some more card draw. I already have Endless Atlas in the deck, and I'll consider Alhammarret's Archive . I like Alms Collector and Slate of Ancestry , so I'll be adding those if I can find space.

I see your point on Bontu's Monument , I'll take that out.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey enpc,

Thanks for your comment. My lifegain package is mainly for card draw, but I'll probably take most of it out for other cards. The only thing I would leave in would be Auriok Champion , The Soul Sisters, and Suture Priest . I'll probably also take out Dawn of Hope and Well of Lost Dreams , because they don't do much anymore.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey Nemesis,

Thanks for your comment. I agree with you and enpc, so I'll be taking out my lifegain package.

Thanks again,

Hi, nice deck - one of our playgroup has an Oketra deck and it is serious stuff.

I'll start by seconding the inclusion of Hall of Heliod's Generosity , probably just drop a plains.

Other Lands - Cryptic Caves if you think you can handle another colourless source, and New Benalia is handy if you don't need rocket speed. Homeward Path is probably a meta-call and could be unnecessary.

As for suggestions;

  1. I'd aim to put the Tithe from your maybeboard in if you can pick one up, Land Tax would be even better, but boy, that price tag!

  2. I'd also like to recommend Odric, Lunarch Marshal so your team gets Double Strike from the big-O and Vigilance from her zombies, as well as probably Flying! He'd be the perfect replacement for the dropped Skirmisher.

  3. Luminarch Ascension is a beating in Commander if you can drop it and defend it.

  4. Finally Skullclamp , you'll usually have a weenie or two to bump off despite the inclusion of Divine Visitation .

Suggested cuts for the above with a bit of reasoning:

Hope you do well with the deck! GLHF

CastleSiege on Deforestation

Trying out some new tec! From now on I'll be doing a more consistent job of logging my deck revisions.

Cut ol'reliable, Terastodon for Force of Vigor . Nasty Terasty has always been amazing utility, either using him the way he's meant to be played or using him to hit my own lands and getting 33 power across 7 creatures and making Gaea's Cradle tap for significantly more mana. However, 0 mana is a lot less than 8 mana, and instant speed removal is generally better. Late game I expect to usually only pitch ramp spells after I no longer need them.

Cut Terramorphic Expanse for Prismatic Vista . It was either going to be my signed copy of Teramorphic Expanse or my FNM promo Evolving Wilds , but the Evolving Wilds was too pretty to cut. No-brainer include, the land enters untapped. Effectively a fifth fetchland for my mono colored deck.

Cut Cultivate for Springbloom Druid . This one hurt, I loved my FNM promo Cultivate signed by John Avon! I had already cut Kodama's Reach for Three Visits , and Nissa's Pilgrimage is strictly better in a mono colored deck. Springbloom Druid is also stronger for my strategy, so Cultivate got the axe.

Cut a Forest for Elvish Reclaimer . I play a lot of lands. Like, a lot. I have a million and a half ways to get more lands. With 12 Forests there's still a 91% chance of having green mana on turn one. Reclaimer is too good to not include.

Cut Homeward Path for Cryptic Caves . It's inclusion was originally to protect Titania since the deck just folds without her. However, Control Magic effects are rarely played in my meta, so the cut is justified.

Cut Blast Zone for Lotus Field. Blast Zone is extremely powerful in theory. The problem is that it's just too slow.

Ehsteve on Lord Windgrace Sits Behind A Chasm

1 month ago

Recent spoilers have given lands-matter this little gem:

Field of the Dead

Now given that these Windgrace decks are running multiple lands of different names, along with spells like Scapeshift and Splendid Reclamation , this could potentially function as a win condition based solely upon landfall, along with being difficult to interact with. Better yet these zombie tokens enter untapped, so you could for example flash a blocker off a Crop Rotation or recur fetchlands for great effect.

Only issue is that it enters tapped and it is a colourless source, for which this archetype is not lacking. Could be a replacement for Homeward Path (as much as I hate leaving the board open to YOINK decks) or maybe one of the worse wasteland effects like Tectonic Edge .
