So much land discard and sacrifice/destruction, no point in it if you don’t run Life from the Loam.

Hey, mind updating the description to replace Life from the Loam with Crucible of Worlds? Also, I have had a lot of use replacing the Loams with Crucible since I saw it here, getting Eternal Witness, Academy Ruins, and Crucible of Worlds, along with either Executioner's Capsule, Walking Ballista, Nihil Spellbomb, Hangarback Walker or Pulse of Murasa.

I have found great luck with Tasigur, the Golden Fang over Ishkanah, Grafwidow, having similar beat-down finisher capabilities while also being a decent beater if you need it, while also being a great early blocker, stonewalling most aggro decks. I understand Reach is useful, and the extra spidy-spider are nice, but Tasigur's ability is pretty great for the deck.

I do sideboard the big Momma Spider, but Tasi-G is my goto in that slot, thoughts?

Thanks for the suggestion Advisorofdark! You're right in that Life from the Loam is great value. I'm pretty sure that it was part of the original decklist but was removed in favor of keeping my instants and sorceries to a minimum. If you see a spot to squeeze it in, I'm all for suggestions on replacements.

What about Life from the Loam? It's a great value card on it's own; it can also work with that Walk the Aeons combo you have by adding 3 islands to your hand and using extra land drops.

Life from the Loam is really good with cycle lands since you can get those back and cycle them again, then you can dredge straight away by replacing the draw from one of your cycle lands.

I couldn't see a way of getting Aven Mindcensor in the deck, but the Life from the Loam was a great suggestion. I put the one lili in the side and reduced tracker to 3 to put in 2 of them. If you think I want more of them I could put the Fulminator Mage in the side.

hmm Aven Mindcensor could ramp up the moment of them failing to find, Life from the Loam should also be a serious consideration for a deck running so many strip mine like lands while also being a goyf deck.
