Krosan Verge Discussion

Hello! Saw the deck pop up in my feed and as I already had a curse based Zur the enchanter deck i thought it might be fun to give your deck a spin.
I play primarily online and in budget, so I had to make some changes: The fetch lands were outside my pricing limitations, so Bloodstained Mire was replaced with Swamp , Flooded Strand replaced with Evolving Wilds , Horizon Canopy replaced with Bountiful Promenade , Polluted Delta with Terramorphic Expanse , Verdant Catacombs with Cabal Coffers , Wooded Foothills with Golgari Rot Farm , and I kept Windswept Heath as I already owned one. For anyone reading this, realize that removing fetches drastically alters the pacing and mana fixing of the deck, but also saves hundreds of tix. I kept Serra's Sanctum in, even though it was outside my price range, as there was no suitable replacement.
With no other notable changes I begin my playtesting: Game 1: kept 3 lands ( Krosan Verge + filter land + Woodland Cemetery ) Utopia Sprawl , Satyr Enchanter , the game quickly spiraled out of control with 1 player mana screwed and the other two playing token-based strategies. game ended with Teferi's Protection into Replenish to avoid a board wipe and stick Opalesence for lethal.
Game 2: A slow clunky hand led to my first mulligan which yielded 3 lands, Eidolon of Blossoms and 2 bad enchantments. brutal flooding let to discarding 4 lands by turn 6 after 2 tymna attacks for 1 and 2 cards respectively: this is not likely a reflection on the deck but MTGO's shuffler. flood happens. after awhile became archenemy, got my board wiped by Cyclonic Rift with no way to keep most of my enchants in hand on cleanup and had Replenish hit by Dissipate causing a huge setback. Having Mana Tithe in the deck would have been an enormous boon in this situation, and at worst it's a one-of one cost spell that occasionally completely hoses a play.
While I highly doubt 2 games are enough to see everything a deck has to offer, from what I have seen thus far it performs well, feels fun to play, and is fairly consistent. In my second game I could have played around counter magic, but I wasn't expecting exile specifically. It might be worth finding room for Riftsweeper and Mana Tithe but if the deck performs this way without the fetches you're probably on to something great.

Love this deck! As the proud creator of a Dune-Themed Naya Deck (Hazezon Muad'dib: Dune-Inspired EDH), your concept really tickles me.
I think a tiny bit more sorcery-speed ramp would serve you well here, even with the built-in ramp on your commander. These cards are most important before you get her to stick anyhow. Maybe Nature's Lore or Skyshroud Claim ? Krosan Verge is another interesting option in your colors. All of these can snag your checkland, cycling desert, or shock too!
This deck is also tailor-made for Garruk, Primal Hunter The -3 is ridiculous with your giant creatures, of course, but most importantly IT MAKES WURMS!
Hope some of this helps, amigo. Keep up the good work.

You might consider replacing Vivid Meadow , Vivid Creek , Vivid Marsh , Vivid Crag and Vivid Grove for the still-cheap Prairie Stream , Sunken Hollow , Smoldering Marsh , Cinder Glade , Canopy Vista . This way, a Farseek can get you two colors! If you include Murmuring Bosk and Krosan Verge , the latter can be activated on turn 3 to fetch Murmuring Bosk and Cinder Glade , guaranteeing you 4 colors for a turn-4 Scion of the Ur-Dragon .

Since most of your deck is green-white, Sungrass Prairie might be a good inclusion. You could take out Myriad Landscape for Krosan Verge , that can grab all 4 colors for you (e.g. Godless Shrine and Cinder Glade ). Blighted Woodland is ramp stapled on a land. Caves of Koilos and Llanowar Wastes are also cheap.

I suppose the best option would be to drop Reliquary Tower . This isn't the kind of deck that's going to draw 5+ cards in a turn, so there's no real reason to run Tower. If Sanctum is staying, then it's best to treat it like Temple of the False God . Not as a 36th land, but as a late-game rock. As I said before, with Exploration and Burgeoning , you want a higher land count, anyway.
I think Hunting Grounds and Sylvan Library are fantastic additions. There's now a 57% chance that Sanctum can act as a 4th land drop on time, and a 77% chance Sanctum is adding more than one mana by turn 8, assuming you see 4 extra cards and no enchantments get removed. I think I would also find room for Carpet of Flowers .

Krosan Verge can only find cards with Forest or Plains in the typeline; not all lands that produce or have the basic land type. Dryad Arbor , Sacred Foundry , and Mistveil Plains are searchable here, but Treva's Ruins or Sunpetal Grove are not.

So it might be a dumb question? Can Krosan Verge find a bounce land like Simic Growth Chamber or a dual like Temple of Plenty ? Even if the plains or forest isn’t in the subtype? Based off of the mana symbols in their text. Or does it HAVE to state in the subtype that the land also is a plains or forest?
I’m just confused because of what I’ve read on other sites and I just want a confirmation.
