Horizon Canopy Discussion
2 days ago
The_Overlord_666: Are you referring to Wooded Bastion? Because while there is an inherent risk, the rest of the manabase is generally good enough to make sure I have a coloured mana source to fuel it. Plus as the deck is more green heavy but most of the combo pieces need double white, it does an excellent job of producing that in a single land.
While it can be risky to run filter lands in tri-coloured decks, here the reward far outweighs the risk. Not to mention I want to avoid running tap-lands (I make an exception for Canopy Vista).

Behold, my hilarious new brew:
I'm thinking the deck needs a third color. Blue is my first choice because it gives Coiling Oracle and Spreading Seas. However, a strong case could be made for White or Black because then you have access to things like Horizon Canopy or Shaman of the Pack.

Okay, i overlooked that you don't have a win condition in creature form, such as Triskelion or Acidic Slime. It's easier for decks with access to black cards like Blood Artist. Nevertheless, it's possible under the right circumstances:
With Protean Hulk or Boonweaver Giant plus Mirror Entity serving as a sac outlet, you are able to assemble Reveillark, Karmic Guide and Saffi Eriksdotter. At this point, you have access to any creature in your deck. If Academy Rector is still available, you can now simply go for Living Plane plus Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite (just get rid of Living Plane again before you let the next Mirror Entity trigger resolve).
If the Rector is exiled however, you need one of the following cards to win: Strip Mine (combines with Sun Titan or Renegade Rallier to kill all the lands, Qasali Pridemage or Angel of Serenity deal with other mana scources), Beast Within (You need mana for this: Sylvan Safekeeper can sacrifice lands, then Titan/Rallier return them untapped to generate mana. Now use Eternal Witness plus Beast Within to blow up the world and clean up the tokens with Fiend Hunter), Horizon Canopy/Scattered Groves (generate mana with Sylvan Safekeeper like before. Canopy can be reused with Titan/Rallier to draw the deck, whereas Groves requires Eternal Witness. With your deck in hand and a nice amount of mana, you simply loop Reveillark until you run out of Mirror Entity activations, then cast Blasting Station and win that way).
On a different note, i noticed you are running Dosan the Falling Leaf, but not Grand Abolisher. Is that a conscious choice or was the Abolisher simply not on your radar?

I can see where this is going, and I like it, but there are two major hurdles to cross. One is that your curve drops a lot of creatures on to the battlefield a little late, and they don't have the immediate board presence to offset this loss- this isn't Gatekeeper of Malakir stuff- eternal witness is a great card but its just a bear the turn you play it, and that is unlikely to be enough to survive in this fast-paced metagame.
The second issue is unreliable mana- your lands are entering untapped which is essential for creature based aggro, but are not providing multiple colours, effectively leaving multiple cards in your hand blank.
I'd reccomend adding the following, and cutting the number of cards that don't have an immediate impact on the game.
Don't talk about the price - Noble Hierarch Knight of the Reliquary+fetches Horizon Canopy Blood Moon etc. Just look at tournament lists at this point. All lists including this type of card have been largely explored and optimised, so its not much worth mucking around with.
I'd reccomend cryptolith over prismatic, because you need the added acceleration if you're sacrificing a turn to play it in a deck that wants to be attacking and casting bigger stuff. That said, you could just play token spells in those slots or some more lands. It doesn't look as flashy, but it keeps the deck running smoothly without 'loosing' a turn.
You can make the deck a lot, lot more stable by leaving a colour to later in the game, only including a single basic and alternative ways of producing the mana, allowing you to reliably cast creatures turns 1-2-3. You aren't pumping out hoardes of goblin or elemental tokens or abusing flicker for impact tremors to be super effective, so leaving the only red spells as Kessig Malcontents as a finishing blow in an otherwise green/white list will be a lot more reliable. Swap kytheon and twin bolt main to sideboard- you might want to keep the impact tremors there if you face a lot of Fog effects.
Borderland ranger is too expensive mana wise for what it does- Harrow is an instant and leaves two lands untapped and better creatures are out there to fix mana. There are better cards for that slot.
All told, playtest, look at what other people are doing and most of all, have fun!

the new land from ahmonket has been spoiled seems pretty good from what playtesting ive done Horizon Canopy is in alot of bogles decks (non budget) and imma guess that Scattered Groves is gonna be a bit cheaper, and its fetchable

Alrighty, slight updates. Upon closer inspection by my friends at my LGS, fetches seemed like a poor choice with Leonin Arbiter, so they were cut for an extra 2 Ghost Quarter and a set of Razorverge Thicket. Additionally, I just frankly didn't like Horizon Canopy, especially in our meta, so I'm going to replace it with Treetop Village instead. The draw ability on Canopy was never very relevant and I feel like more Man-lands is a good choice.

Aside from the sideboard, Gifts Ungiven storm is a very cheap deck. However, it's really hard to pilot skill wise. Mono White Death and Taxes or Merfolk are also an option, the only expensive card they have being Aether Vial. Mono red burn is extremly cheap, especially since Goblin Guide's reprint.If you forget about the Horizon Canopy, boggles is both cheap and easy to play. :)
