Life from the Loam


Return up to three target land cards from your graveyard to your hand.

Dredge 3 (If you would draw a card, instead you may put exactly three cards from the top of your library into your graveyard. If you do, return this card from your graveyard to your hand. Otherwise, draw a card.)

Cradle is never worse than a forest. On average it taps for 3.

Tectonic Reformation is the red version of Trade Routes . It took the spot of the 3 Onslaught cycling lands. Amazing draw engine with Life from the Loam .

Dryad Arbor is the most important piece of the Green Sun's Zenith into Natural Order early game combo.

Forge of Heroes was weak and was cut.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth might get added for the color buff but the combo with Mana Web is very intriguing.

Oblivion Ring is a versatile beast in my experience, since it can target any non-land permanent. Alpha Authority can be a very good survival enhancing enchantment in green, and Multani's Presence is helpful vs blue at least, so it's viable sideboard material I think.

Deserted Temple is great if you've got the Sanctum out, and it helps your enchanted lands re-tap, though if you face a land destruction deck you'd be in trouble. Something like Life from the Loam maybe?

If you want to break the bank a bit, Replenish is pretty brutal. A good delay enchantment (though not very permanent) is Parallax Wave , which can be a 1 card win con in some situations.

Here are my suggestions:

  • Life from the Loam : To get delirium, but with some fetchlands (or Ash Barrens , that is less efective) also can help you to get the 5 lands you need for Ishkanah, because with 22 lands sometimes you won't be able to cast it.

  • Nyx Weaver : Delirium enabler, and a good card for spider tribal.

  • Obelisk Spider : Another effective spider.

Also I think that you can cut Jungle Weaver , because it feels bad here, and I think that as I mentioned above Nyx Weaver is a better option.

I hope this helped you :)

Preordain comes to mind as a cantrip you might want to consider, as does Thought Scour .

Dredge spells like Golgari Grave-Troll and Life from the Loam seem like a REALLY good way to fill your yard.

Self-sac-ing artifacts can help build card-advantage with your general. I’m thinking Nihil Spellbomb , Mishra's Bauble and/or Urza's Bauble .

+1 Eternal Witness e wit is broken

+1 Golgari Grave-Troll this is good for flipping your deck over

+1 Life from the Loam this is also good for flipping your deck over, land destruction, but its better with fetches

+1 Scavenging Ooze to fight other graveyard shenanigans

+1 Return to Dust solid 2-for-1

+1 Bane of Progress creeping corrosion but on steroids

-1 Teneb, the Harvester pretty slow card imo but I kinda like it so idk

-1 Gods Willing you don't really care about your creatures dying

-1 Orzhov Enforcer there's better creatures you can play

-1 Golgari Findbroker - e wit or even Greenwarden of Murasa are better

-1 Sanitarium Skeleton - karador lets you recast cards anyways

-1 Culling the Weak - not a strong enough sac outlet in my opinion

Hi hellspawned inaddition to 33 lands and 6 cards I put into the "Ramp" category there are other cards that help me hit my land drops. Cards such as Life from the Loam , Satyr Wayfinder , and World Shaper have a dual purpose because they put cards into my GY and get me lands. Combine cards like this with cards like Faithless Looting and other card draw and the fact this is a GY based deck so the dredging is almost as good as card draw. The deck also has a low curve, many of the higher cost cards are being reanimated instead of cast so once I hit 3 mana the deck just starts doing its thing. Click the playtest button and give it a few tries and see what you think.
