Philoctetes on Lord of the Flies: Sek'Kuar Lands Primer

2 weeks ago


Primer has been updated with a new layout and updated card selections! I have sub-divided my card selections into Core, Flex, and Old Inclusions to help readability - no more long walls of text! (or at least not as long...)

@TheMightyHoju pop those bad boys in there then, by all means! I believe that Library of Alexandria and Mox Diamond are two very near to the top for inclusion, you can check out my new Wishlist section for cards I would definitely add if I owned them. as for the cuts, well.... That's the challenge I think! One word of advice though - don't cut any lands. If anything, the deck wants to run 50% or greater lands, it feels light right now.

Let me know how the games go!!!

That’s great to hear! I can’t wait to get your feedback, I’ve been running this solo for quite some time now, it will be great to have a sounding board.


Thanks for following this deck! In regards to your question, you most certainly can run a more budget land base. Notably, Gaea's Cradle is obviously great but really more of a vanity inclusion. Also, the colored sources can be downgraded at the expense of some speed and consistency. Dark Depths really does add a ton to the deck, but I played for a long time without it. Strip Mine effects are very essential, but Tectonic Edge does a reasonable impression. I think Kessig Wolf Run is a must as well. And other than that, a lot of the interaction out of the lands slot are cheap cards like Ifnir Deadlands.


I have begun the makeover of my primer, I will be fully updating the layout, reorganizing card choice sections, making it more user friendly, and adding a few detailed sections on core cards vs flex slots. I will also add vanity cards that I currently don’t own but would fit in the fully tuned list, ie Mox Diamond, Library of Alexandria, etc etc.

solRing at least in Vintage cube. But its actualy pretty close to a mox in general

Library of Alexandria is also very strong.

Those are called the 10th powetpiece sometimes. There might be some mor ebut those are the only ones i can think of in the moment.

Moat isn't a land and is not black, and Library of Alexandria is banned in commander.

right, im pretty sure they do it to help each other from blaming the game if they ever get screwed/flooded, so everyone gets to start with a land card on the field. it doesn't have to be basic but it does have to be a land, it cant be something that needs something else to happen to produce mana, so Library of Alexandria would work, while Lost Vale would not. when I originally posted, I thought sol ring was an artifact land and I was mistaken, I don't use sol ring all that often so I hope I may be forgiven this fox paws, faux pas for those that don't listen to chad daniels.

What an odd deck! I think you're missing Moat and Library of Alexandria though.
