Nimbus Maze Discussion
3 days ago
I see that my earlier wish was nearly granted; those lands are very nice, and I am certain that, given how expensive Horizon Canopy currently is, they shall be expensive, as well. Hopefully, there shall be four more allied-colored lands printed in the near future, to complete the cycle, and, at this point, I believe that it is very safe to presume that there shall be a full cycle dedicated to Nimbus Maze and Grove of the Burnwillows , as well, but not river of tears, since that land is not a particularly good one.
Also, prismatic vista is very nice, as it is almost entirely better than Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds , due to the fact that the land that it finds enters the battlefield untapped, which is easily worth the cost of 1 life. However, why does prismatic vista have a multicolored frame, while the other two lands have colorless frames? That makes no sense.
Great gods, WotC actually printed a card of Urza himself in a black-bordered set! This is amazing! It is powerful, as everyone expected it to be, since he is one of the most famous characters in the entire game. I am displeased that he is mono-blue, since the card of Mishra was three colors, and this will only reinforce the old idea that blue is overpowered compared to all the other colors of the game. Does this mean that there may eventually be a black-bordered planeswalker card of Urza (hopefully multicolored)?
As with Serra, I feel that a card of Urza should have been kept only for the eternal formats, given his status and legacy in the lore of the game, but I should not complain, since many players, including myself, have been desiring such a card for many years, and our wish has finally been granted.

I also am disappointed that the lands in this set are reprints of the snow-covered lands. Their artwork is very nice, but I really had been hoping for either enemy-colored versions of the "battle lands" from Battle for Zendikar or a complete cycle based off Nimbus Maze .
Seeing the artwork on those lands makes me wish that WotC could make a single exception to the reserved list to print full art textless promo versions of the original dual lands, likely as judge promos, because those would be amazing.
Also, the return of entwine and kicker make me very happy, because those are some of my favorite non-evergreen mechanics in this game.

Hey, nice version, but I think there's too many five drops, six drops and seven drops here. 16 five drops are making the avg. CMC of your deck higher than 4.
4.2 avg. CMC is too high especially when playing a three drop Commander. You can narrow down the five drops and keep the best ones: Mulldrifter, Peregrine Drake, Liliana Vess, Devastation Tide, Oath of Teferi and cut the rest. The same can be done for the six drops keep: Duplicant, Terminus, cut the rest. The seven and higher drops keep: Razaketh, the Foulblooded and that's it.
Vela the Night-Clad is a six drop, but if you combine her with Felidar Guardian and Aminatu then it's a combo to make all your opponents lose all life since both Aminatu and Guardian are continually leaving the battlefield which triggers Vela infinite times. Consider including both Vela and Guardian as your main win condition with Aminatu?
Consider cutting many of the high CMC cards for lower mana cost cards that interact with Aminatu or give you good value for the mana cost? Budget cards $3 or less each to consider adding:
- Wall of Omens
- Rishadan Cutpurse
- Brago, King Eternal
- Animate Dead
- Telling Time
- Swords to Plowshares
- Reality Acid
- Oath of Jace
- Oath of Liliana
- Dovin's Veto
- Ashiok, Dream Render
- Narset, Parter of Veils
- Return to Dust
- Talisman of Dominance
Budget land $3 or less each upgrades to consider:

Thank you for the heads up on Karakas , I actually didn't know that ! I'm probably gonna put a Nimbus Maze in instead. As for Necropotence , that rules interaction is exactly why I have a Spellbook , an Anvil of Bogardan , Reliquary Tower and a Library .
Having no maximum hand size should solve the problem, if I'm thinking right ?

Hey, some good advice so far and my suggestions are to improve the manabase. Budget lands ($2-$3 or less each) to consider adding:

The land denial is a very valid option, just one I have personal dislike for. If your playgroup is more cutthroat or that's a strategy you enjoy then definitely throw that in.
I did consider Mox Diamond , it didn't make it in mostly due to initial budgetary reasons and may eventually make it in if I can find an FTV one for a non-insane price, although that extra mana rock hasn't been necessary.
Mox Opal I had not considered. I don't think my density of artifacts is high enough to consistently turn it on turn 1 or 2 where you really need it. I still don't think I do but I originally hadn't run the artifact lands nor the artifact tutors.
As I work on this would probably prioritize: Obtain WAR stuff > get the MagicFest plains & islands > finish foiling/promo(ing) the current list ( Minamo, School at Water's Edge , Cryptic Command , Chrome Mox , Mana Vault , Council's Judgment , Nimbus Maze , Seat of the Synod , Return to Dust ) > then pick up items like Mox Opal and Mox Diamond

First off, Ice Cave isn’t really thematic or synergistic with a deck like this, and I think it’s actively bad in Commander because the rest of the table will be mad at you for letting their spells get countered. Daxos usually benefits from a much more Voltron-like strategy with more equipment. If you want to stay about here though, Tezzeret the Seeker is a good tutor. Other than that, you just need to upgrade your land base with cards like Glacial Fortress , Nimbus Maze , Skycloud Expanse , Port Town , and utility pieces like Maze of Ith

Even Nimbus Maze would make for a cool cycle from that set ck. And yes, definitely Tango lands.
Also, why only Murmuring Bosk ? I'll take this in both wedge and shards please.
