Lotus Petal Discussion

yes Dramatic Reversal as a standalone is that good. i underestimated it too. i only played it because of the scepter combo first but then i drew it during games in various situations and boy its a hell of a ritual. playing scepter imo is more of an option but i definitely had it in games complete dead rotting in my hand. so its your choice.
and yes play Lotus Petal. didnt notice it in the first place. to underline how good it is: it is a Black Lotus sometimes. you can use it to play Doomsday and have it included with yawgmoth's will in your pile to use it 3 times in a single turn.
but before adding just only mana (which is good mana) i think your deck is a little light on threat density. i understand the budget thing but just playing more interaction in stead of business is not the best especially as your commander isnt a card-engine like tymna. look out for Praetor's Grasp to be a potential budget grim tutor with upsides. atleast Dimir Machinations or Diabolic Tutor as tutors or Diminishing Returns / Whispering Madness as additional wheels for drawing a full grip again. i know they are suboptimal but under restricted budget going to light on business is worse than going for little worse businees but atleast having enough redundancy to keep fireing at your opponents if need be.

Sgtpopnfreash That hadn't occurred to me either (I've seen Lotus Petal in some lists but never understood its importance). I'll probably place priority on Mana Vault and Petal given how reasonably cheap both cards are. Thanks for the input!

Because of the AG/AN combo you should add a Lotus Petal and ideally a Mana Vault and Mana Crypt. Lotus Petal will be the most important since it gives you 2 mana with Yawgmoth's Will. With that combo you can also just play Laboratory Maniac and the cast Gitaxian Probe.

So mine GetKilled.dec is actually this but meaner cause 14 subgames, anyways you might want to consider running mana accelerators like Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, etc. to get that turn one lethal.

If you are a combo player, then you might want to consider adding the following cards:
- Leyline of Anticipation allows you to flash in your spells.
- Free Mana Accelerators, such as Mox Opal, Lotus Petal, Simian Spirit Guide, etc.
- Immortal Coil (cannot be used alongside Lotus Petal or Balustrade Spy and any one mana draw spell.
Theoretically, this would allow you to lose the game on the very first upkeep, regardless of who starts.

Hello, and thank you for the kind words!
Nath's pros lie in that his ability can be used as a combo piece with discard (especially Sadistic Hypnotist and Possessed Portal) which supports his staxy game plan, but Gitrog has potential as a staxy deck with Strip Mine recursion and Death Cloud effects paired with land recursion, followed by pure Gitrog beats or something like Helm of Obedience as the wincon. A brew with some combo routes was made a couple months back if you're interested: Frog Stax.
As far as you Zur list is concerned, I honestly have nothing too big to add. Mox Diamond and Mana Vault are both rocks that you should definitely run for their massive tempo gain in the early turns though. Lotus Petal is great too, but not too compulsory in a deck like this. Sensei's Divining Top of course is also a super good add, but I can see if you prefer not running it. For some extra enchantment toolbox synergy, Flash + Academy Rector for Omniscience is always pretty damn good, and Rector is fine in that you can use it to find other chants as well if you feel like it and it can also be reanimated with all the reanimation spells. Speaking of reanimating Rector, I also recommend bounce spells like Cyclonic Rift or Winds of Rebuke to do tons of things whenever you need to (such as bouncing an Animate Dead off of Rector).

There be dragons! :D So... you need quick mana for him?
Then you need Power Artifact or if you have Ancient Tomb play that and Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond instead of one of the above lands to play Rings of Brighthearth, with combo Gemstone Array to convert your mana into one mana of any color and go infinite
or Argothian Elder, a land to tap for green and Elvish Spirit Guide, Mana Vault, Sol Ring, or Mana Crypt, and Exploration Azusa, Lost but Seeking if you didnt have Elvish Spirit Guide in hand. and Concordant Crossroads in hand go infinte with it
play a Forest and with the mana play Eladamri's Vineyard /Exploration for one more green mana at the begining of your next main phase play Arbor Elf, and Utopia Sprawl on your Forest, then play Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond of another mana using that mana play Mana Vault then play Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond one of them you didnt play then play Freed from the Real/Pemmin's Aura
Above isn't from originally me, I just happened to be looking at it when I saw your deck :D
