Lotus Cobra Discussion

multimedia on Windgrace us with his lands

Hey, looks good, nice start. Creative intro deck description :) Do you have the cards in the maybeboard? There's some cards there especially lands that are better than main deck cards.

I think you're better off playing more basic Forests in place of ETB tapped lands such as Jungle Hollow, Kazandu Refuge, Akoum Refuge, etc. even the Bounce lands even though they have interaction with landfall. Consider more/upgraded land ramp? It helps with more Forests. Windgrace as Commander can benefit from a lot of land ramp because you need lands to fuel his abilities. More land ramp also helps to power landfall creatures.

Land ramp to consider adding:

Farseek, Lore, Skyshroud is dual land ramp.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Charnelhoard Wurm
  • Garna, the Bloodflame
  • Rubblehulk
  • Whiptongue Hydra
  • Hunting Wilds

Other semi-budget cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Lavalanche
  • Ruinous Path
  • Savage Twister
  • Seek the Horizon
  • Stitch Together
  • Consign to Dust
  • Seer's Sundial
  • The Mending of Dominaria
  • Khalni Heart Expedition
  • Acidic Slime
  • Centaur Vinecrasher
  • Worm Harvest
  • Gaze of Granite

I recently put together a Ghave, Guru of Spores abzan lands matter list and I discovered that if you have Retreat to Kazandu / Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest , Squandered Resources , Life and Limb , and Ghave on the board you can get infinite landfall triggers. Activate Ghave creating a saproling, the saproling enters as a land because of Life and Limb , which triggers landfall on Retreat to Kazandu putting a +1/+1 counter on Ghave. Then sac the saproland to Squandered Resources for a , which you use to activate Ghave again. If you have Lotus Cobra it also nets you infinite mana.

XaiLo on Karametra Creatures

I never understood why so many people build Karametra as an enchantress deck. Her strength is clearly Creatures and Landfall! So I'm glad you are running Courser of Kruphix , Lotus Cobra , Emeria Shepherd , Emeria Angel , Rampaging Baloths , Admonition Angel , Tireless Tracker , and Avenger of Zendikar .

But in a deck that takes so much advantage of landfall, why only 1 fetchland? If you added more fetchlands, and then Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Ramunap Excavator . . . suddenly your Lotus Cobra is getting you 6 mana per turn completely for free, Rampaging Baloths is dropping 6 beast tokens per turn completely for free. Plus the extras you'll get for playing creatures and triggering Karametra.

Obviously fetchlands plus Karametra/Creatures triggers will run you out of basics to fetch. But when that happens you should be so far ahead that you can find a wincon.
If you put in Quirion Ranger , Scryb Ranger , Jungle Basin , and Karoo , and you don't even need lands in your deck to keep getting the land drop triggers.

If you wanted even more land drops you could of course run Wayward Swordtooth , Oracle of Mul Daya , Llanowar Scout , Sakura-Tribe Scout , Walking Atlas , probably others I can't think of off the top of my head.

More ways to take advantage of so much landfall: Retreat to Kazandu , Grazing Gladehart , Oran-Rief Hydra , Retreat to Emeria , Stone-Seeder Hierophant (toss in a Wild Growth , Utopia Sprawl , or Overgrowth and watch what Stoneseeder can do in this deck!)

For moving more towards a Lands Matters theme, which like I said is where I think you wanna be...

Sorry it's just Gates doesn't translate as well to EDH because you can only have the 12 or so gates.

Thanks for the suggestions KayneMarco!

I've tried Wayward Swordtooth for a long time in the deck but it consistently ended up being less impressive than any of the other ramp creatures as it ended up doing very little early game (unable to block or attack) and late game was just as impactful (a lot of creatures bigger than a 5/5). A short time ago it was cut from the deck and since then I haven't felt any significant degradation to how it plays.

Ob Nixilis, the Fallen has been on the radar for a long time, however I think that he represents too much of a threat in terms of board politics, and doesn't represent an impactful or game-winning threat upon resolution like say an Omnath, Locus of Rage or the utility of a Borborygmos Enraged . The threat density of the deck is a little light so I'll give it a try at a later date if Squandered Resources doesn't work out.

Mina and Denn, Wildborn do seem to naturally work well with any creature large enough to really make the trample aspect important, but this deck doesn't really play any of those kinds of threats reliably. I imagine it works well in concert with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen . My issue is that unlike the other impactful ramp creatures (such as Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Oracle of Mul Daya or Lotus Cobra ) the secondary ability doesn't really shine. That said it potentially allows you to replay Glacial Chasm multiple times to reset counters and protect it at instant speed from removal, so I'll give it some more thought and revisit that one soon.

+1 Burgeoning -1 Lotus Cobra I find my hand size is fairly large with 7-8 cards in hand. Burgeoning since I have few ways to have more than one land ETB Lotus Cobra is a fair cut.
