SMASHER101 on Never make a manabase again?

2 weeks ago

I like commander a lot and have quite a few decks, I set my cards like Cyclonic Rift and Lightning Greaves aside so I can put them in whatever deck I am using.

I play a lot of multicolor, and more and more i'm thinking of doing the same with all of my lands, and just making a manabase that can go into whatever deck i'm using, then back out after the game. (like if I am going to play a temur deck, I grab all my lands in that color combination and shuffle them in with my deck (basics would stay in the deck of course)

So which lands do I get, here is what I have thought of so far:

pain lands

some of the cheaper fastlands and dominaria lands

bounce lands

Ash Barrens Command Tower Exotic Orchard and Nimbus Maze

the reveal a land lands

scry lands

Some kind of slow fetch package?

Which lands should I buy? I'm thinking that with a slow fetch & zendicar check lands manabase I could run a lot of basics, what do you think?

Since your idea is to beat your opponents with your commander, why don't you make it a bit more voltron with cards like:


Mother of Runes

Aqueous Form

Field of Dreams

Hyena Umbra

Steel of the Godhead

Sword of Feast and Famine

Lantern of Insight

For board swipe, counters and draw cards:

Cyclonic Rift


Render Silent

Unexpectedly Absent (cause you put the card you want to steal on top of it's owner's library just paying two mana and chosing X = 0)



Settle the Wreckage

Sensei's Divining Top

For some good lands I'd suggest:

Academy Ruins

Celestial Colonnade

Ghost Quarter

Field of Ruin

Strip Mine

Hallowed Fountain

Mystic Gate

Nimbus Maze

Ancient Tomb

Command Beacon

multimedia: unfortunately, there is no cycle for Nimbus Maze type lands. Nimbus Maze is the only land that works the way it does.

Shocks are topping at $10 at the moment, I wouldn't hold my breath that they'll get cheaper with the re-print, probably more expensive while they're in standard and maybe a bit cheaper when they rotate.

Whether or not you need more depends on your decks, do they require a lot of coloured costs or do they need large amounts of specific colours.

I think Shocks are a bit better than Nimbus Maze or Rugged Prairie. They work better with your Check lands and can give you coloured mana turn 1.

I'd probably replace the others with shocks rather than adding them.

DemonDragonJ on Should I Have a Third ...

I have ten two-color 60-card decks (one for each two-color combination), and each of those decks has eight dual lands of the appropriate colors, four copies of each of two different lands. For example, my blue/white deck contains four copies of Glacial Fortress and four copies of Nimbus Maze, and my red/white deck contains four copies of Clifftop Retreat and four copies of Rugged Prairie.

However, with the shocklands soon to be reprinted in the Guilds of Ravnica block, they shall become far less expensive, so I am wondering if I could have twelve dual lands in each of my two-color decks (i.e., four copies of each of three different lands), as that would give me greater options for producing mana, but I worry that an opponent of mine may use something such as Blood Moon or Ruination, so I need to ensure that I have a sufficient number of basic lands to protect myself from such cards.

What does everyone else say? Are eight dual lands sufficient for my two-color decks, or will having twelve dual lands work, also?

Mana Fixing - Hard to go wrong with Chromatic Lantern! Since your commander costs 4, Coldsteel Heart or Fellwar Stone might not be bad ideas to go along with your signets so that you can ramp it out on turn 3. As far as lands go, I think they're gonna be your best bet for filtering since you have so many options available to you! Aside from the obvious dual lands and fetch lands; there are the rest of the filter lands cycle with Mystic Gate and Sunken Ruins; there's the old Odyssey filters Skycloud Expanse and Darkwater Catacombs; River of Tears and Nimbus Maze are criminally underplayed but fantastic cards; there are the new battlebond lands Morphic Pool and Sea of Clouds; and lastly there are the lands that tap for any color like Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Forbidden Orchard.

As far as staying alive goes, I notice you already have Solemnity in your maybeboard to combo with Glacial Chasm and Delaying Shield but another card that works well with Delaying Shield is Soul Echo. As long as Soul Echo has one counter on it, you're pretty much immune from damage. Also it's another card that lets you drop below 0 life. Obviously not a great combo with Solemnity but I think running one of the two wouldn't be a bad idea!

On the other side of that coin, if you happen to have Repay in Kind in hand and need to be at 0 life, Wall of Blood or Hex Parasite can help with that. Hex Parasite can only drain in increments of 2 but is a bit more versatile of a card whereas Wall of Blood can drain one life at a time, but is pretty much there only for that.

Hope some of this helped at all!

Seems very nice, but I'd do some changes: first of all I would change Cast Down into Fatal Push. Then, if it's on budget, I'd increase the numer of Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand and Marsh Flats and I'd cut Nimbus Maze and River of Tears. I'd add also the schocklands, if on budget: Hallowed Fountain, Watery Grave and Godless Shrine, cutting Adarkar Wastes and Underground River. Then, why not a Logic Knot or Mana Leak instead of Negate and Pact of Negation? Also, since you have decided to use only 2x Inquisition of Kozilek, couldn't be better Thoughtseize? Another 2 token spawners I would take in consideration here are: Bitterblossom and Secure the Wastes (since is instant and creates as many tokens you want). Another thing: since you have only 4 black spells, why won't you consider cutting all black from the deck?

@SynergyBuild I was thinking of adding more untapped lands like Nimbus Maze, Tainted Isle, Tainted Field, and the pain lands. Thoughts? Maybe what lands I shouldn’t be playing?
