Tyrant-Thanatos on Nephalia Academy Question

MJS154 I wouldn't call it useless. can still be spent on generic mana costs. For instance, you could tap Nephalia Academy and Forest to cast Grizzly Bears.

It may not provide colored mana, but it can still be used to cast any sort of card with generic mana in its price, and provides the effect that it has.

Nephalia Academy only adds colorless mana to your mana pool. You cannot use it for Llanowar Elves or any other colored mana cost.

Terrain Generator is an instant speed way to drop a land

Avenger of Zendikar is a big finisher

Ramunap Excavator lets you reuse your lands

Nephalia Academy is half the ability of Library of Leng but is harder to destroy.

You might as well run Spitting Image, Trade Routes, and Constant Mists to use up those extra lands.

Another thing that could help is running 40 lands since they are never a dead draw in your deck.

Xica on Fast vs. Check lands?

2 weeks ago

2 color decks love to play their Ghost Quarter & Field of Ruin, not to mention cards like Cavern of Souls, Boseiju, Who Shelters All, Nephalia Academy, that protect your own gameplan. There are also plenty of utility lands like Desolate Lighthouse, Geier Reach Sanitarium - or all the manlands. Hence it often happens that people only run the absoluty minimum number of basics they need to, to be able to function beside Blood Moon.

As such check lands often come in play tapped.

However the answer to your question depends on the kind of the deck, if you badly need our mana early game (and can't really use mana in excess of 4), then fastlands are the way to go. If you plan winning the long game on back of things like Sphinx's Revelation then checklands are better.

(And shocklands are always good to have at least as a 1-2 of in the deck, as they can be used to fetch for multiple colors, and provide it instantly withotu asking for conditions)

This is awesome. I love decks that absurd, so it'll definitely get a+1. And because i would lose track of it in my folders, i created a new one to put it there. There'll propably go more decks into it, but this was the first. Brilliant.

Btw, how about Nephalia Academy? It doesn't help you with your infinity "problem", but it can help you protect your hand before comboing of.

Oh, and wouldn't Aetherflux Reservoir basically be the perfect win con here?

You might consider Nephalia Academy to hedge against hand discard like Wit's End or Sire Of Insanity.

Learn from the Past can help refill your library in longer games, or Elixir of Immortality or Laboratory Maniac even, so you don’t mill yourself.

You might also consider some Planeswalkers. Tamiyo, the Moon Sage especially, and most Jace’s, could go a long way.

precociousapprentice: Playing last Friday, I had included Dark Depths, and came to the same resolution you did. It was nice to have something I could keep on the BF. Also with counters up, I was able to protect the original Dark Depths as I allowed Vesuva, Thespian's Stage, or Mirage Mirror trigger the flip on themselves.

I did however notice that I need to work on my shuffling. There are many times where I can't close out a game as my opponents sit there and kill each other, but I just can't finish off that last one. Some sort of lifegain will be a nice inclusion.

If you play against discard at all, I would like to say having Nephalia Academy is a great card to have on the battlefield.
