Lotus Petal Discussion
1 day ago
EKEZ950 Thank you for the suggestion, the hive is pleased. Lotus Petal is a great little card, giving you that much needed mana to get your combo off maybe 1 turn faster. The problem with it however is that it's not re-usable. In the EDH format, I think cards like Lotus Petal don't really fit. I think other mana rocks like Mana Crypt or Sol Ring would be better choices. Thank you for the suggestion, though.

@Burl: Now I'm seeing it... Haha I really like your suggestions, so it will be -8 Forest, +4 Lotus Petal, +2 Tranquil Thicket, -2 Predator's Strike, and +4 Gitaxian Probe. In my playtesting I have noticed that although Llanowar Augur is great bang for buck, it is too predictable, and Rot Wolf is an excellent value play but is too slow unfortunately. Gut Shot is underwhelming in Infect, but I do agree with Sandstorm, so I'll put two in. For Tormod's Crypt, you make a good point so I'll put in Relic of Progenitus as well. Thank you so much for all the great suggestions!
@lonker: Thank you for clarifying, yes I totally agree with this and will update accordingly. Thank you for the great suggestions!

Good start. We need to streamline a few things and make this deck a little quicker and more interactive. Legacy is a very fast format. Let us begin:
Force of Will may be the best Counterspell in the game, but in this deck its a tight fit. This deck does not run enough blue cards to utilize this spell, and the cards you are dumping are going to be needed. I would use something like Dispel. Its quick and gets the job done. Most often your trying to stop Lightning Bolt or Surgical Extraction type effects.
if you run 4x Lotus Petal you can prolly cut your lands to 18. You only need one Dryad Arbor for MBC and Chainer's Edict or Liliana of the Veil type abilities. Replace 5 or so basic lands with fetch lands. This way you can pull that Arbor out when you need it. I wld also include Breeding Pool.
Slip Through Space is an alternative for Distortion Strike. Personnaly I appreciate the card draw over the rebound, you're more than likely going to be dealing enough damage you won't need the rebound.
IMO you're going to need more infect creatures. Ichorclaw Myr is a staple in almost every infect deck for its self pump ability.
Don't be afraid to use a 3 of for some of the cards like groundswell of Slip Through Space. This will help when we get to the sideboard.

- Won vs. Affinity x3
- Won vs. Mirror
- Lost vs. Turbo Fog
- Lost vs. Mirror
- First three games were against Affinity. Infect is just too fast.
- Both mirrors vs. Same guy. Crushed him first game.
- Over an hour just to play the first game. I conceded the match. I literally pressed "OK" repeatedly for an hour. I was over it.
- Misplayed both matches. Was the last game I could play so I rushed it and Fuct up. Both times I had it in my hand I was just careless. Never half ass any two things. Always whole ass one thing.
On MTGO I do not yet have Lotus Petal, Gitaxian Probe, or Land Grant. Without those cards the deck is $10. I currently filled out Groundswell and Mutagenic Growth, and am running 14 Forest plus the Tranquil Thicket and Khalni Garden.

Jokes aside, a good read as always berryjon. Comprehensive, witty, and funny. Thanks for all the time you put into writing up these articles, man. :)

You definitely want a full playset of Key to the City in here, I can tell you that much. It's by far the best way to push through a win since the Colossi don't have any evasion, plus it helps the gameplan significantly through card selection and because it's a noncreature artifact.
I also recommend a couple copies of new Tezzeret because he's removal and mana ramp. Important to note his +1 Lotus Petal both pays
I don't think Heart of Kiran is worth the slot because Crew 3 is difficult to pull off and you don't run planeswalkers (and even with Tezzeret it's not a good enough rate IMO). You will probably want to turn that into +1 Aethersphere Harvester and +1 Prophetic Prism or Metalspinner's Puzzleknot.
I quickly threw together my own list a couple weeks ago, it's not optimized but might help you think: UB Metalwork Prototype
