Oracle of Mul Daya Discussion

I agree that Azusa, Lost but Seeking wouldn't really shine in this deck without bigger changes. She only gives as much as she's given and doesn't generate any advantage on her own. If this deck had some Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Krosan Tusker, Life from the Loam, Yavimaya Elder, type of ramp it would be ideal, but without it she'll just only work well enough with Oracle of Mul Daya and Lotus Cobra.

This deck is better suited to something like Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger

demonicgrizzly, you're absolutely correct that Azusa, Lost but Seeking is a great card. My son runs it in his The Gitrog Monster deck to amazing effect, but you pretty much have to have a number of cards included in the deck to take advantage of her, and I really don't. I'm not currently running Courser of Kruphix, in fact I traded away my copy after I got Oracle of Mul Daya . Crucible of Worlds wouldn't be optimized in this deck, since I don't have any mill or sac engines, and although I do run Oracle of Mul Daya, it has it's own built-in extra land drop feature, which is awesome.

So, even though I may nix the idea of a card for this deck only, it doesn't mean that I think the card's no good, just that it's not optimal for this build as it's currently set up .

Emzed, thanks for your feedback, it's always welcome.

Hermit Druid should work out well. It's low cost both to play and to activate, guarantees a land drop every turn, and is card advantage of a sort, even though that card advantage has to be a basic land.

I was a bit reluctant to include Lotus Cobra, but since the_earl_0f_grey was so adamant that this deck would greatly benefit from it, I'm going to give it a run, it may surprise me by how good it is, who knows.

Azusa seems rather mediocre here, if you don't draw at least 5 lands in your top 10-12 cards, she does basically nothing. That's not unlikely to happen, and cards like Oracle of Mul Daya and Sylvan Library can help find extra lands early on, but the card still doesn't look good enough to me on average. Decks that draw lots and lots of extra lands via cards like Wheel of Fortune, Necropotence or Crucible of Worlds are much better homes for Azusa.
Lotus Cobra also doesn't reach its full potential here, there are no fetchlands and not that many effects that trigger it repeatedly. It's still a fine card, but maybe a simple Arbor Elf would be just as good for only one mana. (In contrast to the cobra, it also synergizes with Mana Reflection and Extraplanar Lens.)
I don't quite know what to think of your idea to use Hermit Druid to ensure land drops, i've never seen that approach before. Usually that guy has the job of milling the whole deck for some combo or at least fill up the grave for reanimation. Anyway, maybe it will work the way you want it to, let me know how it plays out. Yavimaya Elder could fill a similar role.

You don't need to draw a lot of lands if you the nckude vards that let you play lands from your library/graveyard (Courser of Kruphix, Oracle of Mul Daya, Crucible of Worlds, etc.)

Try it or not, it's up to you. But I know from experience that it is a good card. Exploration is also a good card, but Burgeoning also requires you to actually have lands in your hand, which was your argument against Azusa. Unless you build with that in mind, it does less work than Azusa. With Azusa, those lands don't have to come from your hand at all.

I can definitely confirm that Azusa, Lost but Seeking is legit good, especially with a Courser of Kruphix or Oracle of Mul Daya on the field. Add in Horn of Greed and draw a ton of cards while you are at it.

Though I don't think you want to be giving everyone the ability to draw cards when they play land, it may be worth considering.

guessling on When to run Top?

I think Sensei's Divining Top works best with cards that use the top cards of your deck as a resource like Oracle of Mul Daya. The next best thing to be running with it, in my opinion, are fetches that allow you to shuffle away 3 irrelevant things on the top.

I can't think of a deck it wouldn't help in but it fits better in combo decks that have room for "good-stuff support" slots rather than synergy or theme decks where it may compete with cards that better fit the theme or have stronger synergy at a much reduced price tag.

That being said, I can think of 3 EDH decks that I currently run that would love a top.

Oracle of Mul Daya takes up turn 4. Might not seem like much of a difference but with Bloom Tender you could be activating Mayael the Anima and making a giant threat on turn four.

In short Oracle of Mul Daya for a slower slightly more consistent deck and Bloom Tender for more explosive turns.
