Memorial to Folly Discussion

After play testing, I ran into a problem of too slow of land drops. I would say take out the Cinder Barrens and one Memorial to Folly and replace them with mountains. I think that would help you consistantly draw a steadier mana base.

This looks really good for your first time building a deck!

The one problem I see is Cabal Stronghold. In order to make more mana with it than you would by replacing it with a basic swamp, you need 5 basic swamps in play, but there are only 7 in the whole deck. Basic lands are fine here. If you want to use something else, you could try Memorial to Unity, Hashep Oasis, Ifnir Deadlands, Memorial to Folly, Blooming Marsh, or maybe even Aether Hub or Foul Orchard.

I would also recommend Hour of Glory instead of Eviscerate. They only cost a few cents and are strictly better. When Hour of Glory rotates in the fall, Eviscerate might become more useful.

Also keep Duress in mind as a possible substitute for or companion to Divest, depending on what problems you're running into.

KingZamiel: You may be right on Memorial to Folly (arguably also Memorial to Glory). I'll have to test and see how much the ETBT hurts the deck.

Okay, you've convinced me to at least try Helm of the Host here, haha - you make fair points. Do you think that there's any obvious cuts here?

I also need to add Austere Command and Sadistic Hypnotist. Bleh. I don't want to make cuts...

Daedalus19876, that sounds like an interesting deck. I'll have to check that out later!

That's right, Elenda's sac trigger is just icing on the cake for this deck. With in mind, I agree your wargear is better suited overall.

Helm of the Host is crazy costly, there's no denying that. I don't blame you if you can't find anything to trade it out for either. I will say this though: if you have Anointed Procession already on the field, whatever the helm is copying will make 2 of that creature. If you equip it to Grave Titan, not only would that make 2 of it, but it would make 8 zombie tokens as well. Every turn! Giving it to Massacre Wurm would give your opponents' creatures -4/-4 every turn, Lord of Lineage  Flip would be ungodly powerful even if you can proc it just once, etc. It's a heavy investment for sure, but I think it's at least worth considering.

Also, maybe Memorial to Folly and Cabal Stronghold might be helpful?

polity4life Inventors' Fair Not Necessary in here really. And being a more aggro style deck I'm not expecting to have 3 bodies on the field at the same time usually so he didn't get inclusion though it did get tested. So far in testing I always draw at least 2 wincon regularly so I don't feel the need to fetch. I'd rather fetch from graveyard via Sequestered Stash (originally) and now Memorial to Folly. Metallic Mimic is part of what sustains this deck for power. Helps to make that bottom end a little more survivable and always nice when Traxos, Scourge of Kroog Comes out just a lil bigger. Tested Herald of Anguish as well which was a wincon choice at one point but just not consistent enough to get out for cheap vs Traxos, Scourge of Kroog or Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp. Heart of Kiran was an original choice but with crew 3 its tough. Hence the Aethersphere Harvester. Crew 1 works with all bodies in the deck, still flying, and has ability to assign lifelink as needed in longer games. And can help feed it while fixing colors with Aether Hub

So in event #2 today I took third (3-1). I basically played Esper flyers/control with two Woodland Cemeterys to splash for Tatyova, Benthic Druid. I was packing both Aryel, Knight of Windgrace and Josu Vess, Lich Knight (who I did manage to kick one game for the victory) alongside multiples of each of The Eldest Reborn, Cloudreader Sphinx, Academy Drake, Deep Freeze, and Aven Sentry. Also, flickering The Eldest Reborn with Sentinel of the Pearl Trident while the third trigger is on the stack is so broken. I only lost to the eventual winner who was running a good stuff deck that had bigger fliers (Lyra and multiple Serras)

A buddy of mine also went 3-1 with a voltron deck that centered around powering up Yargle, Glutton of Urborg, Kwende, Pride of Femeref, or Evra, Halcyon Witness with On Serra's Wings (he had 3), Dub, or Jousting Lance. He also ran a couple of Memorial to Folly and Tragic Poets to keep recurring his creatures and enchantments. It was by far the funniest/my favorite deck I have seen all weekend.

Gosh yeah, sultai is a direction I really want to go in, honestly. It even has more fast green mana with Botanical Sanctum, and gives us access to Ipnu Rivulet, which can help out Ramunap Excavator in the late game. On top of this, having more creature based value finishers, like Tatyova, Benthic Druid, or Muldrotha, the Gravetide makes Adventurous Impulse, Memorial to Folly, and Memorial to Unity even better!

I actually have a sultai list, that I'm looking at a bit, over here:


I do actually have a single Nissa, Vital Force in the sideboard, but I find that I don't play her often, simply because my lgs has a bunch of grixis control running around. Whirler Virtuoso and his thopters effectively shut down her ability to ultimate.


Esper sounds interesting, especially with all of the good enchantment removal in Dominaria, which would help get to the cities blessing, while dealing with Glorybringer and the likes! one thing I'm worried about though is the loss of low costed board wipes which I get access to in black. This deck folds to aggro faster than a dude betting his last penny.


I am woried about going four color with this deck because the land slots are actually really tight. I would need to throw in blue basics, and/or deserts, and I am already a bit pinched on green mana, nor wishing to take out any of the currently present lands.

Even more, (to take this chance to describe some of the other wincons of this deck) I'm often looking to get two deserts with Hour of Promise in order to get two zombies and the cities blessing for wayward sword tooth around turn three or four. Also, a big plan for the late game is to get out Dunes of the Dead and an Ifnir Deadlands to slowly work through the opponents creatures, while also getting a tonne of zombies. Hour of promise is basically my tutor card for that plan, while also having some flexibility to get any silver bullet lands that may be needed. Placing more demand on what that card initially gets could ultimately hurt the efficiency, and strategy of the deck.

Gift of Paradise would be a good way to go four color, but at that point I don't really think that wold be the same deck any more, because that card would go in the place of ramunap excavator, and wayward swordtooth. This would also nullify our ability to get excessive value out of Tatyova, which kind of ruins our reason for going four color in the first place.


But I would love to see a four color list! There has been a sultia lands deck using cards like that, with only carnage tyrant as creatures, which been getting some results, so I think its very viable.
