Nostalgic Dreams Discussion

TheRedGoat on Beware the Shrubbery (Competitive Lands Matter)

So firstly I really like what you've got going here as far as play style (being a lands matter deck that just gets out of hand with your commander rather than being strictly based on them). That's cool. Plus the name is funny and I'd love to here where you got it from.

Secondly I would point you in the direction of a certain EDHrec article that discusses how each of the green/x color pairings work when compared to each other. They've done a pretty good job of fleshing each option out and I think you'll find a lot more there than by just me saying whether one thing works well or not.

By personal suggestion, you should definitely have Ramunap Excavator for the extra grave recursion, or in a similar vein you could run Nostalgic Dreams.

Additionally, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar, Scouting Trek, and Rites of Spring seem like some strong cards for this build, but I say all this without play testing so take it with a grain of salt. I also wouldn't know where to cut for the same reasons.

Yea my deck needs more recursion for sure. I only have eternal witness and a flipped journey to eternity at this point.

I like Seasons Past as it shuffles itself back into the library.

Ill-Gotten Gains is interesting as well as it can enable archfiend and return 3 cards to hand but can also benefit opponents as well.

Malevolent Awakening, repeatable and can use tokens as sac fodder.

Genesis- can discard it and then use its ability from the graveyard.

Nostalgic Dreams - discard and return but like dreams, feels bad if countered.

Phyrexian Reclamation is probably just the best for creature recursion though.

You think of any other cards which can be useful?

First off, while I have very few sources as to the gender of Sasaya, I'm pretty sure she's female.

Second, I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to suggest. Add Scapeshift and Nostalgic Dreams? I mean, I tried Dreams once upon a time, but there are not that many cards you want to get back from the graveyard, and discarding as a cost is a real cost. Even the most forgiving counterspell, say Arcane Denial or Remand, still puts you incredibly down on cards and, while there are comeback mechanisms (Sylvan Library and Life from the Loam, for example), it can still be difficult to come back once you're down.

In terms of utility lands, there's not a lot of non-Forest lands that this deck wants. Mikokoro, Center of the Sea is the only major one I can think of, maybe Ash Barrens or Dark Depths if I was feeling particularly spicy, but other than those I'm not even close to sure what you are suggesting.

Thanks,

You may have the wrong idea about green. I happen to know that Nostalgic Dreams is a very powerful recursion effect for 2 mana, especially if you have lands already in the grave from perhaps a sac outlet like Scapeshift? I would also point out that Sasaya need only have the same named lands for his flip effect, so if you had used a bunch of utility lands that sacked themselves, and popped them back into your hand, then now you've suddenly got the required seven you need to flip him around. Just a thought.

shame Thanks for the comment and the upvote!

Both of those cards have had their moment in the sun in the deck and did solid work on occasion. Both however got cut for similar reasons. They're both (close to) dead if you're not going off.

The deck used to run a number of damage doubling effects like Gratuitous Violence, but they were frequently win-more for me. Either I was going off and winning, or not. The only that stuck around is Illusionist's Bracers as it has some added utility when Borbor is out, but you can't combo off AND it copies the ability to generate two draws instead of one with Keen Sense Even that would probably be best getting cut as the deck doesn't really take advantage of it much anymore. What I DO like about Quest for Pure Flame though is that it is one mana. If you top decked it in the middle of going off, it's easy to sneak into play.

Nostalgic Dreams is also at it's best when you're going off. One of the biggest issues the deck has is running out of gas in general. Especially if you hit one of your extra land play cards, you can very quickly be sitting on 7 mana, but no cards in hand on turn 4, so I've opted for more traditional draw like Harmonize. In that scenario, Dreams is a dead card as you need to discard something to get value.

Bobo was the first mythic rare I ever opened and since then he has always been a favorite of mine too! A couple of cards that I have found to work quite well with the big guy are Quest for Pure Flame and Nostalgic Dreams. Throw four lands, sac the quest making your lands now bolt for 6 dmg, and then pitch your hand to get quest and a bunch of lands back! There have been games when i have done over 200 dmg in one turn by recuring quest multiple times and then returning all my lands to my hand.
