Mina and Denn, Wildborn Discussion
1 day ago
Hey, man. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Life was kind of a whirlwind for me, for a bit.
Anyway, I have messed around with this quite a bit, on the playtest feature (prior & latest versions). I'm curious how much playtime you've gotten with it, & what your findings have been.
I'm wondering if you're finding it to be a tad color-greedy, with double/triple black + double green + double white mana costs. I know I definitely had this problem at first. Opening hands without a fetch were usually rough... and I would pretty much fold to Blood Moon.
If you've had the same experience, I'd consider choosing a color to be your spalsh-color... probably white, in your case (I went with green)... then trim back your manabase, & cut the double-cost cards. In your case, looks like Gideon Trials only.
You've got 16 out of 24 potential white sources in your manabase. That's huge... I'd trim some. Maybe try more fetches, more Overgrown Tomb, & some Treetop Village. I'm curious if you find that Haunted Fengraf works well? I think I'd rather another manland, or another basic, in this slot.
Worm Harvest had always looked too slow to me, although admittedly I've never tried it. What do you think of it?
A while back, I found that Life from the Loam really wasn't doing much for me. I would never dredge for it. It was there for land recovery following Smallpox... but I didn't always need that. It was also there to combo with Raven's Crime, or CoBru, or to hold onto something good in my hand whilst Lili was out. Which was okay. I had cut Loams down to two... until I tried Zombie Infestation. This was a game-changer for me. Having an engine for Loam, I went back up to 4. Something to consider, maybe.
I'm considering investing more heavily in the Loam-discard cycle; possibly by adding a 4th Zombie Infestation, a 1-of Call the Bloodline, maybe even a Squee, Goblin Nabob for discarding. I have already tried Peace of Mind x1 mainboard. It's underwhelming, except v. Burn. Then it's gold.
But back to your build: I think Garruk Wildspeaker is fantastic. Have you considered adding Utopia Sprawls, & possibly another Death Cloud or two? Maybe a third Garruk, plus a Kitchen Finks or two to help stabilize? Or, if you'd rather, Wall of Roots or Sakura-Tribe Elder. Drop Loams back down to two. Then try to ramp for big Death Clouds. This is probably the direction I would try to go, if green were my number two + white was my splash.
If you have trouble with fast creature aggro, Bontu's Last Reckoning is fantastic. I've also considered trading out my remaining creatures (Bob) for sweepers. But my meta is just too fond of creature-light control; Snapcasters only, or Snaps/Quellers.
Anyway, there are a few of my thoughts... if you're still playing your AbzPox semi-frequently, I'd love to hear your findings, & hear how it's doing. Good matchups? Bad matchups? I could possibly recommend some silver bullets, if you'd like.

SkullOfPoison I'd say this deck is at about 70% power level. I will eventually get the extra land drop creatures Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Oracle of Mul Daya, and Courser of Kruphix. I will also toss in Crucible of Worlds so that I can make sure i hit land drops by reoccurring Strip Mine, Wasteland, and adding Ghost Town. Making sure I get full value out of my landfall triggers.

I actually really like r/g edh, it's actually pretty fun. You should consider the original omnath Omnath, Locus of Mana. Also loving the mana fetch, you could speed it up with Courser of Kruphix. And for tokens of run Doubling Season and Parallel Lives. Additionally you could consider Burning-Tree Shaman, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Oracle of Mul Daya, Rampaging Baloths, Atarka's Command, Gruul Charm, Signal the Clans, Clan Defiance, Ground Assault, Exploding Borders, Fires of Yavimaya, Xenagos, God of Revels. The list goes on. I might suggest you take a look at the gatherer, it has every card ever printed and an intelligent means to search for them

I really like Mina and Denn, Wildborn. Being allowed to double your landfall triggers is so cool. Have you looked at Vinelasher Kudzu or Undergrowth Champion? They're not technically landfall but they're pretty much there. Just ideas. Aside from that I would add some instant speed hexproof into your sideboard like Blossoming Defense against removal. I've always enjoyed green and I think red compliments it well in this sense. Nice deck +1

First off: Fantastic work. This is a hilarious decklist with a great, unique win-con (Mina and Denn, Wildborn have got nothing on this) which actually could work. Just a few suggestions, although you've probably done more research for this than me. You could include Dunes of the Dead and Sunscorched Desert as alternative win-cons in case they exile your poor, innocent Piranha Marsh. Also, since your entire strategy revolves around your land, I would suggest Teferi's Response. This works fantastically in my Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper deck, and I feel it would have a home here. Also, Ramunap Excavator was printed for some reason, although I still haven't figured out what the devs were on when they decided to.
If you found this helpful, would you mind checking out my Release the Gremlins Tribal deck? I've gotten it as far along as possible on my own, but no one's commented to assist yet. If you have a spare moment.

You could even run some natural card draw and play cards like Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Courser of Kruphix or Oracle of Mul Daya.You can also run some fun ramp cards like Tempt with Discovery or Traverse the Outlands to target your already huge Countryside Crusher
