Moldervine Reclamation Discussion

Rzepkanut on Mazirek Sac-Storm: The *Primer* of Life & Death

Hey oc616, Sorry I missed your comments earlier!

  • Moldervine Reclamation is a fine include for a fair Mazirek deck. I'm a big proponent of having at least a handful of effects that trigger card draw when a creature dies. That being said this isn't necessarily the most efficient one to cast (which is why its not in my list) but it is cheap to purchase which is great. If you are doing an infinite combo Loop then it can cause an issue with you milling out, but if you're just playing a fair game the fact that it doesn't say may on it doesn't matter.

  • Lazotep Reaver is a fine piece of fodder. If you look at the ones that I'm using in my list, it's just a tiny bit less useful/efficient than similar ones I'm using for various reasons. But I would not fault you for including it if that's what you've got. You need to have a decent amount of fodder for the deck have the fuel it needs.

Thanks for the ideas everyone! It's been such a fun deck for me to play and I'm glad other people are working on it and playing it too!!

i personally like Moldervine Reclamation over Fecundity . Smothering Abomination draws you as many cards as your commander and sacrifices a creature each turn. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest can mean a LOT of +1/+1 counters, especially with Dictate of Erebos , Grave Pact , or Butcher of Malakir . And Attrition makes for great removal

I think the best way to go about this is to choose between tokens or reanimation. Jund has access to both so they're both good options. This will help you choose between cards like Rhythm of the Wild or Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper which only benefit from non-tokens.

Death triggers are also great, and you have access to a lot in these colors like Poison-Tip Archer , Fecundity , Moldervine Reclamation , Ob Nixilis, Unshackled , and Dictate of Erebos . The effects really add up.

Thanks for the feedback.

RNR_Gaming I agree, tbh I put it in as I was struggling of another card to fill the slot and I just thought it could come in handy sometime.

bushido_man96 all very good points, I have found this deck to be much stronger than The Scorpion God deck, mainly because hapatra creates tokens too which makes nest of scarabs not essential, and if hapatra gets removed she can just be recast so the reanimation package can definitely be cut.

I could probably half the tutors too, as I’m only needing to fetch one card, being Yawgmoth with this deck.

Great suggestions in terms of draw, Moldervine Reclamation is a definite over Greater Good as this deck doesn’t have big creatures.

Thanks again, very useful comments

Sorry I didn't get back to you here right away; got way sidetracked....

In my opinion, you could probably cut most of the reanimation package. I don't think reanimator is what you're really looking to do here. You appear to be more along the lines of getting critters, killing other player's critters, and using Aristocrats to kill along the way. Running an Eternal Witness is always good value, but I think adding in the recursion package is cutting in to what you actually want to do.

I'd cut Greater Good for Moldervine Reclamation , or Fecundity (helps other players, so not as good here), or Greed . I run Greed in just about any deck running . It's never not useful. It's not Necropotence , but it's still good, and underutilized in my opinion.

You might also consider how badly you need the tutor package. If you've got a wincon that you need to be able to tutor up, then by all means run them. If it's not meant to be an overly competitive deck and you find it's really consistent in coming up with answers, that could be another section to cut. But again, this is based on how the deck wins and your meta.

Hope that helps out!

Thank ya! I am a fan of Moldervine Reclamation mainly because I wanted to slot something in that was the same CMC as Black Market that still provided advantages to the deck while on a budget. I don't think any of the new cards appeal to me yet besides Sanctum of Eternity from C19, but some of the reprints surely do. Beacon of Unrest getting reprinted again is nice and so is Grimoire of the Dead . Both were above the $3-$5 mark so hopefully we will see the prices drop more for them as well as Solemn Simulacrum , Sol Ring , Lightning Greaves and some other staples. That would be very nice.

Godzerker To answer your question I think you could slide Phyrexian Arena in for Moldervine Reclamation , or Smothering Abomination , or even a basic land. I think you could make it work. Just never drop below 36 lands.

Are there any Commanders that you guys are interested in lately? I know I have been looking to revamp my WG token deck with a RWG deck. I am also thinking about brewing Morph and a Landfall deck.
