Ob Nixilis, the Fallen Discussion

@ chaosumbreon87 Thanks for you comment. I haven't tried any of them. I know Kruphix, God of Horizons dosen't fit the landfall theme but he is very good utility and helps ramp out big spells that let this deck win out of nowhere. If I was forced to change the commander I would probably grudgingly switch to Tatyova, Benthic Druid and cut some of the high CMC spells I am running. Of the legendary creatures you listed the only one that fits lands matter theme is Thrasios, Triton Hero . I have thought about running Thrasios with another partner commander to add another color to this deck. I would love to run the cards Knight of the Reliquary , Ob Nixilis, the Fallen , and Omnath, Locus of Rage . But if I changed this deck that much by adding more colors I feel that the core combos of the deck start to fall apart. I just wish Kruphix, God of Horizons had partner. Hopefully Wizards of the Coast gives us some more awesome landfall cards in green, blue, or Simic.

Now that I look... I don't have any land fetch. Thanks for pointing that out.

If I get Ruin Ghost and Retreat to Coralhelm or Walking Atlas with any bounce land then I can trigger whichever landfall effect I have in play. My previous build of this deck had Black with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and Retreat to Hagra as a path to victory.

naturesnake420 xD Thank you, thank you. I might replace Grenzo with Meren of Clan Nel Toth and just go straight value-town, using Fierce Empath to fetch cards like Avatar of Woe , and Crypt Champion to recur things like Eternal Witness and Imperial Recruiter .

Dude, Windgrace Scapeshift is bonkers. The obvious one is Ob Nixilis, the Fallen , but Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth with Strands of Night is probably my favorite combo. I'm also a fan of Inkmoth Nexus / Bloodghast and Kessig Wolf Run . Also Aetherworks Marvel has saved me so many times, but I used to run nearly every fetchland known to man (and a good amount of board wipes) haha

Wish you luck :D

Thanks for the suggestions KayneMarco!

I've tried Wayward Swordtooth for a long time in the deck but it consistently ended up being less impressive than any of the other ramp creatures as it ended up doing very little early game (unable to block or attack) and late game was just as impactful (a lot of creatures bigger than a 5/5). A short time ago it was cut from the deck and since then I haven't felt any significant degradation to how it plays.

Ob Nixilis, the Fallen has been on the radar for a long time, however I think that he represents too much of a threat in terms of board politics, and doesn't represent an impactful or game-winning threat upon resolution like say an Omnath, Locus of Rage or the utility of a Borborygmos Enraged . The threat density of the deck is a little light so I'll give it a try at a later date if Squandered Resources doesn't work out.

Mina and Denn, Wildborn do seem to naturally work well with any creature large enough to really make the trample aspect important, but this deck doesn't really play any of those kinds of threats reliably. I imagine it works well in concert with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen . My issue is that unlike the other impactful ramp creatures (such as Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Oracle of Mul Daya or Lotus Cobra ) the secondary ability doesn't really shine. That said it potentially allows you to replay Glacial Chasm multiple times to reset counters and protect it at instant speed from removal, so I'll give it some more thought and revisit that one soon.

The only things I would change to the deck is to add Mina and Denn, Wildborn , Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and move the Wayward Swordtooth to your mainboard. Ob nixilis is a game changer if opponents can’t get rid of him.
