Lotus Cobra Discussion

SultaiWolf on Let’s Reread That Again (Chulane EDH)

Some suggestions: Lotus Cobra, Scute Swarm, Kor Skyfisher, Roil Elemental and Guardian Project. I think you also should play more lands, because with Chulanes ability you want to have a lot of lands in your deck. Hope you like my suggestions!

I think this deck could be extremely potent if you made a few changes - (entirely my opinion)

  1. Play more lands (Yes it sounds ridiculous, but I honestly think 60 lands would be optimal, I'll explain why, ESPECIALLY ones that have built-in draw such as Sea Gate Wreckage)

  2. Play wheels (i.e. cards like Wheel of Fate, preferably ones that make people draw to 7)

  3. Play Past in Flames so you can recur the wheels, as well as Mirror of Fate and Restock so you can recur them again and again

  4. ???

  5. Profit because you will be able to make your opponents draw/discard their entire decks. You will be drawing 7 cards each time you wheel, drawing mostly lands. Then, you will need to put down any permanent to drop all of your lands from hand to field (assuming both commanders are out). This will regain the mana you just lost, if not more, assuming the other cards you drew help net you more mana and/or cards or you have cards like Nyxbloom Ancient or Lotus Cobra out. (Or, alternatively, you can use the artifacts you're producing for more mana.) Assuming you draw another wheel, or a way to recur them as mentioned above, you can continually repeat this until everyone else loses because you keep using Mirror of Fate and Restock so you don't lose. (I also recommend Rude Awakening.)

Good luck.

Sorry, but I think that you may have to invest at least a further $10 to make your deck competitive. I would look to have at least 3 each of Felidar Retreat and Conclave Mentor to make use of Landfall to add lots of +1/+1 counters to all your creatures. Radha, Heart of Keld can help with landfall, but you also need Evolving Wilds and (although expensive) Fabled Passage is nice to have.

You seem to be proud of your single Lotus Cobra. I have found that Ilysian Caryatid is just as good in the deck and cheaper to buy. Sea Gate Banneret is a hugely expensive (in terms of cmc) way of adding +1/+1's for a single turn. I thing that you might be overdoing the cards that search for and place lands - they are also expensive and tend to slow things down.

You might get some further ideas from my own Landfall deck, see M Landfall Naya

Oops - forgot about Lotus Cobra. The card feels good in deck with Landfall effects but Ilysian Caryatid edges it in performance unless you consistently have multiple Landfalls, giving you 1 or 2 mana of any color each turn, regardless of if you had a Landfall for the turn. I just don't have room for Lotus Cobra too. In a two color deck, I would most likely go with Ilysian Caryatid and Nyx Lotus, but might consider Lotus Cobra.

Oops! Forgot another good card-draw card!

Valakut Awakening  Flip has saves me many times. I run a four Lotus Cobra's in my Song deck, and Awakening lets me put the extra basics on the bottom of my deck for later Fabled Passage and Evolving Wilds to tutor up. Granted your deck lacks that need, but it still gives you a MDFC card that lets you save cards for later in the game. Also another card like Rielle that will quickly stip cards out of your opponents deck via Teferi's Tutelage.

The best Pioneer ramp if you're playing lots of creatures are Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Lotus Cobra, and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath.

If you're not playing creatures, then you shouldn't play ramp creatures (I can different options for that too).

Also it depends if you're trying to get to 6+ mana, in which case there are different ones good for that.
