Lotus Field Discussion

I'm pretty sure Menace + Lifelink doesn't work that way.
Creature - Giant Warrior
Double Strike, Trample
Whenever you deal combat damage to a player, you may sacrifice a land.
Whenever a land enters your graveyard from anywhere, you may search your library for a basic land and put it into your hand.
A gruul ramp deck would love this, as it ramps, is an aggressive clock (that's three turns to 24 Trample Damage). Would work well with Elvish Reclaimer, Lotus Field, Fabled Passage in standard, and with many, many more cards in other formats.
Very cool, more in the cycle!

Sorry, I was in a bit of a rush last night.
I understand keeping the mana curve, so don't take on too many more cavaliers. You'll frequently cast Conclave Tribunal for cheaper than 4 mana, since you'll have creatures entering the battlefield most turns.
As for bounce spells, you should have fewer than the number of creatures you have (especially if you go for more tokens than ETB triggers). The first one I'd take out is Run Away Together, which you'll want to use one end or the other at some point, but rarely will you want both.
I still question Lotus Field.

Why not more creatures with ETB effects? Seems to be the deck's goal.
What is Lotus Field doing in this deck? Without some way to abuse it (like Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner), it's a very sub-average card. Nadir Kraken doesn't seem to help with ETBs or having lots of tokens, producing only one 1/1 per turn and only when you pay a consistent amount of mana. Angelic Gift doesn't seem to help, either, since any auras will fade when you bounce the creature, and most of your bounce spells can't target the aura itself.
Speaking of bounce spells, you have too many. If you draw 5 cards, two of them are bounce spells, and that's not a good rate. Fewer bounce spells, and more payoffs (like ETB effects) will help you win. You also need more land. 20 is just not enough. Most good decks have between 24-27. For this deck, 25-26 seems about right.

xEth0sx I ran into a CVT deck tonight that used Lotus Field. Seems like another powerful way to get big mana untaps for comboing. Plays nicely with Winter Orb, but doesn't agree with Back to Basics. It will cause lower starting hand quality due to entering tapped as well as requiring two other lands, but you're going to see better performance with heavier stax build as well as against other stax builds except B2B and Moon effects. In my opinion its certainly worth a consider, and its going to perform better against other midrange or late game decks.

zaytsevi: VexenX's updates are quite large and have multiple sets in between, probably to make them have more content than just a single card substitution each time. In regards to Lotus Field he has earlier commented on this page that it has just been a placeholder and would probably swap it for a Fabled Passage.
He has not made an official update for this swap, but the deck does contain Ghost Town, the card that was originally swapped for Lotus Field. In addition, the deck does not contain Burgeoning, which is the only card in the deck that really justifies the inclusion of Ghost Town, so he has probably taken that single change back until next update where Fabled Passage will be included.

I see you're running the urza lands and ways to get them all out like scapeshift, expedition map, and tempt. Not sure it's worth it to dedicate 3 specific cards for another 3 specific cards that are all colorless. Seems like it could lead to some awkward hands. The Urza lands are awesome when you can play more than one of each in your deck, I'm not a fan of them in singleton formats.
Also, think Once Upon a Time could get cut too. It's a powerhouse in 60 card formats, but I don't think it does a ton in EDH, it's nice card selection and it can be free, but when you draw on your first turn anyway I don't see a ton of value in it. Even if you don't put a protection spell in that slot. I think you could get a better card draw/selection spell in that slot with a card like Sylvan Library or Mirri's Guile, something like that.
Whatever you decide, this deck rules. Cheers homie.

Lotus Field was something i started to play around with today, I'm just seeing if there is any advantage to it in Mono.
I only have Core 2020 and Theros BD on preorder.
Moldervine Reclamation is also an add from today as an idea for adding to the synergy of the lady dancers since I'm already sacrificing creatures.
Without Mogis, tell me a better way to get card advantage with drawing cards in Mono-Black? Especially only using Core 20220 and TBD...
Not trying to sound defensive I'm just tired and just got home from my first day of work in two months.
