Lavaclaw Reaches Discussion

Azetsu on Copter Mardu Midrange

Thank you for your feedback, very helpful.

About the man lands I can agree that 6 are too much. Why would you prefer Lavaclaw Reaches instead of the 4th Shambling Vent? I will take fetches when they drop in price.

I replaced the motorists with bitterblossom. Your argument that his power is wasted when copter only needs 1 for crew convinced me. Thank you.

I like 4 paths because they can ugly things like eldrazis or wurmcoil engine. For the cheap stuff I have bolt and helix. I am not really sure if I need Fatal Push.

Crumble to Dust is temporal replacement for fulminators mage. He is very good with kolaghans command.

Hide/Seek is good versus nahiri emrakul decks, that are popular in my local meta.

You are right Rest in Peace is better. I also consider Rakdos Charm.

Swapping the Ajani for a second Sorin looks like a good plan.

Please note your mana base, you have 5 cards that demand double red mana and yet you have only 6 lands generating red. I think you could increase the amount of red-producing lands.

Putrid Leech is also an... awkward... card... And yet you are trying to use Grim Flayer. It's better to use some sort of artifact maindeck to trigger Delirium since you aren't throwing lands at your graveyard as well... It seems rather difficult to trigger Delirium. You could, however, use cards such as Collective Brutality to send something to the graveyard and still profit from it.

But I really think you could add something like Scrabbling Claws for some draw and mess up Snapcaster Mages since you seem to be on a budget and will not want to spend big money on Mishra's Bauble.

You could try the BR manland Lavaclaw Reaches to get that red mana you need. And you can also use Phyrexian Arena to get that bob effect.

Fatal Push isn't in the best place in your deck since you don't have fetchlands to trigger revolt. I recommend Dreadbore or more Terminates.

good luck

Land creatures would do wonders in this deck. I used to run a similar deck, I just was Jund aligned to get as much land critters as possible, I was also using Sylvan Advocate. Some examples of land critters are as follows:

Raging Ravine, If you want to go Jund; Hissing Quagmire, Lavaclaw Reaches

The cool thing about these lands is, they get boosted by both of your elemental Embodiment.

Lavaclaw Reaches is a cool land that could go ridin' if necessary

Love the idea +1

Myriad Landscape? Blighted Woodland? additionally since you are running so many lands why not run some creature lands to make the deck run smoother and more reliable? Lavaclaw Reaches Lumbering Falls and then to top it off Terra Eternal

Hope this helps

Very cool take on marchesa...have you thought of inclusion of manlands like Mutavault/Forbidding Watchtower/Ghitu Encampment/Lavaclaw Reaches/Spawning Pool to crew your vehicles in case you don't have a creature on the board? Token generator like Assemble the Legion/Bitterblossom/Elspeth, Sun's Champion are also great for more crew.

Aright, I updated with what I have available to me, if I can find the remaining cards by Saturday I will make all of those changes. The only change I made differently was a Wandering Fumarole for the Lavaclaw Reaches... Would you say that's a better sub? I only have 1 but can easily gather more. I actually have money to sink into this, it's just the problem of the availability of these cards in the time frame I need them by.

I can't believe a card like Wistful Thinking exists and I didn't know about it, it's hilarious!

Really nice input from ToolmasterOfBrainerd, at first I didn't want this masterpiece of jank to suffer any changes but I think Mr. Brainerd is right with all the changes (Except maybe Lavaclaw Reaches, is that card any good?).

Try and tell us how it goes for you in your tournament :D
