Life from the Loam Discussion

Firebones675, thank you for checking out Omnath: Age of Explosions. As always, your input is much appreciated. Dryad Arbor was a no brainer add, great suggestion. As for the extra fetches and Wasteland, I don't feel like they are too necessary to add at the moment, but it's always good to have those options available. On a side note, I wouldn't even know where to begin to make those cuts for them. Life from the Loam and Chord of Calling, were both in a previous version of the deck, but when it came to tough cuts, they both drew short straws.

I did make some adjustments to the deck. Would you say it's an improvement or is it still missing something?

I think that is an interesting take. Lets test that theory out? I have a friend with a somewhat similar concept. The Bontu trigger is Nice too, and that would be a couple new additional 3 cmc slots.

I switched the deck to this method again, because I wanted to wait until I purchased my Bloodghast & Life from the Loam. I was also convinced of the power of Ishkanah, Grafwidow, by the same friend.

Looks pretty good!

Most of the cards I would have suggested have already been mentioned. Here are a few others.

Dryad Arbor can be tutored for with fetches like misty rain forest

Mountain Valley and the rest of its cycle (Rocky Tar Pit & Grasslands) can be extra fetches if you want.

With so many of your lands going to your graveyard, Life from the Loam is a consideration. (also works nicely with strip mine. Wasteland also works)

Chord of Calling is a good tutor.

One last comment that's a bit more general. You're a little light on ways to interact with your opponent. If they play something, big, you might not be able to deal with it very easily. Some of the maybeboard cards that can hit troublesome cards are worth moving into the main board.

Well some of the lands are rather expensive, but like Tropical Island and such, but I'm surprised they aren't banned yet. There's also filter lands, they fix mana instead of produce; there's pain lands, there great and low price, but might deal a bunch of damage in a five color deck with Glacial Chasm or something. The fetch lands are ok, they can tutor for shock lands or the new amonkhet lands, but usually you'll end up loosing three life and it takes up a land in your deck.

In my opinion, if you're running a bunch of fetch lands, I would consider more mana fixing cards; there's Joiner Adept, Chromatic Lantern, Prismatic Omen, Mycosynth Lattice, or Amulet of Vigor (like buford420 mentioned). If I ran a five-color deck, I would most likely keep the shock lands and at least two of the mana fixing I just mentioned, and choose between the amonkhet lands or fetch lands (even with Crucible of Worlds, Splendid Reclamation, Life from the Loam, etc). In addition, I would have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Reflecting Pool (alongside your Exotic Orchard), and a bunch of the lands I mentioned in my other comment (any color immediately).

I'm always here, if anyone else needs help too. Hope this helps

Would you want to do 2 Path to Exilefoil icon for a Life from the Loam and a Seasons Past?

I would strongly suggest some fetch lands if you can afford them, and least 1 basic Forest. Having your green source Ghost Quarter'd so you cannot Life from the Loam for a good Conflagrate or continued cycle/dredge triggers feels bad man. Most other dredge lists also use Haunted Dead, and Scourge Devil.

Sac outlets have been very useful for me so I think you should keep Evolutionary Leap in the deck. Mina and Denn, Wildborn has been fairly lackluster and as for lands, I have come to hate Thawing Glaciers because it is only useful when Burgeoning and Amulet of Vigor are both out, otherwise it's a tap land that doesn't tap for mana. Life from the Loam hasn't really done much for me either, although granted I only have a few fetches. I would bring in Sheltered Thicket for Thawing Glaciers, Nissa, Vital Force and Nature's Lore for Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Life from the Loam.
