Lord Windgrace Discussion

ZendikariWol thank you for replying to me so I remembered this thread. And yes the date went well :) Sorry for the delay in responding; I've been bogged down in work, dating, and taking care of my disabled mother.
Anywho! On to the story!
SETUP: I was playing Lord Windgrace . I was playing against Aristocrats via Edgar Markov , a stompy deck and something else. I'm not really sure on the specifics; This was now nearly two months ago. Markov was the clear oppressor on the field; What the player would do is cast cheap Vampires to get the free tokens, then sacrifice the non-token Vampires for benefits and use recursion to bring them back into his hand to cast again for more tokens. Boons / Anthems made his ever-growing boardstate very difficult to manage. Felt more like Archenemy, really.
This was a very long game. We got to around T9 and I decided to reset the game by casting Deathbringer Regent , but Markov quickly rebuilt easily.
On my next turn, I decided I had enough of this and went for the kill.
I assumed between the three Elementals and my Regent, nobody would really pick a fight with me. The Markov player did attempt to attack Windgrace directly with a single Vampire Nighthawk who had been buffed a little, so I traded with Regent because I wanted Windgrace to survive. I cracked off Terramorphic Expanse on his end step, got a basic and a third Elemental.
- Cast Khalni Heart Expedition
- Play Blighted Woodland
- +1 Elemental (4x total)
- , sac Blighted Woodland , tutor 2x basic lands
- +2 more Elementals (6x total)
- Crack Khalni Heart Expedition , tutor 2x more basic lands
- +2 more Elementals (8x total)
- Return Blighted Woodland and Terramorphic Expanse
- Crack Expanse for another basic
- +1 more Elemental (9x total)
- , sac Woodland, +2 more basic lands
- +2 more Elementals (9x total)
(This was 17 mana on I believe T12, maybe T13 thanks to some extremely efficient land drop spells. I don't actually run stones in the deck - I have more lands or land tutors slotted in their spots because I focus around the Landfall mechanic.)
I had just enough mana left over to cast a Savage Twister with X=5. Wiped 98% of the board, but more importantly I killed all 10 of my Elementals (9x tokens + Omnath, Locus of Rage ) for a staggering 30 damage, killing Markov's player and winning the game.
TL;DR - Won via boardwiping myself

I've got a hilarious story but I am on a date waiting for our pizza and am at 7% battery life. Someone tag me in a reply so I remember :) but it's pretty great and used Lord Windgrace ;D

@SP3CTR3_chelts: BUMP: PLAYSTATION 3, WILL RETAIL FOR (SWITCHES CLIPS ENTIRELY) JUST $299.
Wait. Sarkhan Vol knew Elspeth Tirel? This must be about SHARDS OF ALARA Era crap. These two, alongside an enraged Ajani, & Tezzeret when he was considered "Heroic", fought against Nicol Bolas; right? That's the only hint I have at the Sarkhan & Elspeth Relation. Sarkhan became evil, Elspeth was last seen in Theros when having an identity. Sarkhan is now less Chaotic Evil, now he no longer serves Bolas; & even reminded the Elder Dragon of their former alliance.
Personally, I'd decide on Xantcha regardless as Rakdos as an Identity never had the idea of Political matter before; just Mindless Violence & worse (See: Hatebear Decks.).
As for stuff to get, it updated.
- Gaea's Cradle (For Omnath.)
- Gauntlet of Might (For Mono- Burn)
- Lion's Eye Diamond (For cEDH Boros)
- Wrenn and Six (For Superfriends, & Lord Windgrace )
- Force of Will (Several Decks involving )
- Many Mana Rocks.
- Other crap.
Well, do you want to check my Omnath deck yet? Just asking as a reminder. ;D

@scotchtapedsleeve: Hey. I think this should be noted first. Awhile back before I upgraded my account, you did state you'd like to chat w/ me via Discord, I guess? Well, the reason why is that previously, I've made quite a bit of references, X-Play Pilot style, but I hope this has gone less & less. As for help for my own decks... Yeah; I'm still struggling. It's made worse I have a lot of things to say; but am inept at making them more compact. It also is a pain for both ends when one (Me in this case.) doesn't even respond back for input, or even critique. This is why you're person #2 of 3 I'd like a word with in Discord if you wish. Now? The worst problem of all: I don't even remember User #3's Username here.
That said, I'll be completing some decks of mine at some point, or another; so just in case; the other reason I'm here; & more valid: I'd actually like CSS Enabled as well; though as I would normally say it: "The best do their stuff alone..." Aside from my Lord Windgrace deck, not much else fits the bill. I'll be tinkering like mad on my decks untl then, w/ 3 more on the way: Including Jenara, Asura of War Enchantress Voltron. Well, time for me again to Tinker like a Mad Scientist.XP

Oi, cdkime. You asked for a Talk about some important & serious matters, right? Well, there are others after you in case you're wondering. That said, I FINALLY upgraded my account after so many Eons of Procrastination. I'm just keeping my username the way it is until those who are in line; chronologically, from you being the first, & some I can't remember much names, also want to talk about what they want to know. That said, after the last of these things to chat about has finished; only then will I customize my Username like a madman's set of tools to mutilate; yep, I'd want it to stand out. How I'll do it, is up to me after this variant of Hercules' Trials.
Just posting this in the case both you & I are ready for the conversation; you mentioned you have a lot to say; most likely serious matters in regards to myself. Well, I will say this: Now you made me want to do a true Lord Windgrace deck in the future; & it's not just Land focused either. XP
That out of the way, just tell me when you're ready, & if I am as well, let's settle this once & for all; Oh, & I'm surprised we both have the same Third Mana Color (Black ); though in my case, it gives my (Blue ) mana a focus on Exact Info; & if not precise enough, dismisses it as if it's purely false. For (Red ), it also gives me an Ambition, Nobunaga Oda-style to keep on going; strive for what goal I have. Heck it was even implied a couple times I'm (kinda?) a Hedonist myself; but only through the ideas of Anime & Manga, among other formats; even going as far as Fan-Service, to Sensualist-Level (Rest of the Sentence is CENSORED.)
So, that's how (Black ) works w/ my center color of (Red ), & Secondary color (Blue ). I know this post is too long; I apologize, but I'll mention one last time before posting: if you & I are on at the same time; that's a window of opportunity right there. Just posting this so you know when I'll be available to talk.
Oh, & one last thing; My (Red ) traits also include Family Matters, which might get in both our way in my case. & IRL Crap Just a precaution if you still care about YET another wall of text. XS Apologies.

Lord Windgrace is super fun. Here is my version if you would like some ideas- https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/tectonic-shift-3/?cat=type&sort= Feel free to ask any questions if you have em.
As for your build here are a few ideas for you (Not sure your budget so I'll just throw a variety out there)
Add Amulet of Vigor you have a lot of lands that come in tapped and the amulet will allow them to come in untapped. Plus if you have Azusa, Lost but Seeking (Another suggestion) or any other "play additional land" effect out, you can play a bounce land, tap it to float the mana, bounce it to your hand and replay it to tap it again. When I still ran bounce lands I had 8 free floating mana one game just because of this synergy.
Instead of Clan Defiance maybe Blasphemous Act . It will be a lot cheaper to cast and is a guaranteed board wipe (minus Indestructible and a few Eldrazi/gigantic creatures) you lose the dmg to target player sure but it allows you to board wipe for 1 mana.
Add more green mana producers. Your deck is mainly green, yet your mana distribution is fairly even. This could lead to a lot of games being color screwed. I could be wrong since I have not played the deck, but just looking at the CMC and mana production it looks like color fixing would be a problem more often than not.
Courser of Kruphix will gain you life when you play lands.
Thespian's Stage & Dark Depths is an amazing little combo for Windgrace since you can crack stage to become a copy of depths which immediately triggers depths ability giving you a 20/20 flying indestructible creature. And then you just replay those 2 lands from the graveyard to have them ready from when your 20/20 gets pathed to do it all over again.
I do not run this combo yet because I have been to lazy to order one of the cards but Murderous Redcap + Melira, Sylvok Outcast + sac outlet will give you a wincon to machine gun the table (If you want a combo wincon)
Also Bolas's Citadel is just a great card in the deck. It allows you to freely play cards and look at the top card of your library at any time. It also gives you another wincon witn Sensei's Divining Top and Aetherflux Reservoir
You could also cut your artifact mana ramp. I only run Sol Ring and have found that is enough. You will be playing a lot of lands so you should not really need the ramp like a normal deck would. Might want to look into Expedition Map to go fetch any specific land you might need, as well as Search for Tomorrow , it is a one green suspend land fetch.
That is all I can really think of right now. You have a good base of what Windgrace needs/wants so I just wanted to offer some options to help optimize/streamline it a bit. Hope these helped.

LittleBlueHero I red the same or similar thread on the MTGSalvation and it does seem like a cool idea, but I think Wizards will stray a bit from such a dark and gloomy theme as printing 4 villains decks. Maybe 2v2 heroes and villains, but then again that does remind a little too much to the old duel decks.
As for a little side note: The recent sets (recent emm give or take 16 years :D) have tried to shift the focus on black as the main villain color towards the others, because black is more about individuality, which like other colors can be taken to extreme.
Non-black villains: Konda, Lord of Eiganjo - Stole That Which Was Taken in order to become immortal, which resulted in the Kami War Meloku the Clouded Mirror - Helped Konda with his plan, but intended to claim the entire plane for himself and the soratami.
Heliod, God of the Sun - After Xenagos, he's the second villain in the Theroes storyline. He also killed Elspeth.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite - Currently supposed elader of New Phyrexia
Dovin Baan - Major antagonist in Kaladesh and War of the spark story lines
Baral, Chief of Compliance - murdered Chandra's father, another major antagonist from Kaladesh
Pretty much the entire Consulate from Kaladesh is white-blue aligned.
Vivien Reid - while technically not a villain she does represent a ...certain side of the green mana. (MTGWiki quotes her saying that "She wants to destroy the cancer of civilization"...ouch)
Black heroes: Drana, Liberator of Malakir - Fought on the side of the Gatewatch against the Eldrazi.
Yahenni, Undying Partisan - Fought against the Consulate in the Kaladesh story line.
Toshiro Umezawa - major protagonist in the Kami War
Sorin Markov - despite his panache and the whole War of the spark scene with Nahiri, he's still one f the three who imprisoned the Eldrazi Titans. Also created Avacyn to protect mankind on innistrad.
Lord Windgrace - Fought against Phyrexia alongside the Nine Titans. Sacrificed himself to seal a time rift in Dominaria.
There could be more examples but I can't think of any at this time.
P.S. I may have gone overboard with this much examples as is :S

I played my first game today with my Muldrotha deck against a Ghave, Guru of Spores and a Lord Windgrace deck. I was well under way to kill the Ghave player (18 Commander damage), having lost only 4 life from my own sources. The Ghave player was slow due to lack of mana, but had a quick Doubling Season in play. Eventually he had a few tokens and ambushed me with Craterhoof Behemoth and I died. It was a cool experience to play though, and I was really happy to have Tamiyo, Collector of Tales against the Ghave player's Grave Pact :D
Thanks for the inspiration, Pikobyte :)
