Oracle of Mul Daya Discussion

Cool deck! I really like Landfall as a mechanic and this seems like it would be a lot of fun to play.

I noticed you have Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Oracle of Mul Daya in your sideboard, but they seem like they would be auto-includes in this deck. Is there a reason to not play them?

Hey, love the deck.

A couple thoughts:

How about Oracle of Mul Daya ? It does the same thing as Wayward Swordtooth but can also help slim the deck down. Given the low land count & the hefty mana cost to the low curve of this deck, I could understand not running it. Thoughts?

Also, what about Gaddock Teeg ? Cheap effective hate.

All in all, really interesting design to see a creature-based storm deck. +1 from me.

This mono green EDH deck is well out of date and I could use some help updating it to not only be legal but competitive

I feel like the base of the deck is still pretty strong and it only needs a few minor updates here and there, so any and all inputs would be greatly appreciate.

Asus, lost but seeking

First off, I love the deck. Great job with the deck, budget primer and on the work you put in the collaborative primer.

I’m looking maybe to make a Yisan deck and all 3 of these resources were of huge help to me. However, I still have some questions.

Here are the cards I’d remove compared to your list and the reasons for their exclusion (disregarding few manabase changes along the same lines);

Survival of the Fittest , Mox Diamond , Gaea's Cradle , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Mirri's Guile - budget restrictions. For different reasons, I won’t be getting these in the foreseeable future.

Crop Rotation , Sylvan Scrying - without Cradle in, I don’t see these 2 holding up well

Ravenous Slime - my meta isn’t big on graveyards, so I could see myself wanting better verse 3 options

My meta is mostly creature-based with lots of MAN/Blood pod/Tymna decks around. Blue is less prevalent than it is in other competitive metas, and green is the most represented color. There is quite a bit of stax (although I have yet to see a Linvala) and, as I’ve mentioned already, graveyards aren’t widely used here. Non-competitive crowd favors creatures and combat. I don’t expect to play with them a lot, but if we’re paired at a tournament, I’d like Yisan to steamroll them.

Here are my ideas;

  • Tendershoot Dryad - my meta is quite keen on combat, and I’d like to be conpetitive in that regard. A decent verse 5

  • Hornet Queen - pretty much the same as Dryad, but at verse 7 and it stops occasional Zur or Kraum

  • Wayward Swordtooth - a bad Azusa, but a ramp effect nevertheless. Could be useful because of its 5/5 body that can save me some life while enticing Tymna players to soften up the rest of the table for my Hoof

  • Tireless Tracker - because our games can get grindy, having a good draw engine and a beatstick in one sounds good.

  • Skyshroud Ranger - makes up for lost t2 Yisan capcity lost by excluding Diamond and it’s an elf. Nothing to write home about, but seems decent

  • Mana Vault - t2 Yisan enabler

  • Elvish Archdruid and Marwyn, the Nurturer - big elf mana. I’m not very excited about these, but they might be good Azusa replacements

  • Oracle of Mul Daya - if I had one, I’d probably just play it in place of Azusa. But I traded mine away long time ago. Its current price and likelihood of being reprinted make it an uneasy buy for me. But if you think it’s worth the buck in here compared to other options, I can bite the bullet.

  • Ulvenwald Tracker - Tymna eliminator and generally a repeatable creature removal in a relatively creature-heavy meta

  • Quest for Renewal - seems to me like an extra copy of Muse that’s lest susceptible to removal.

  • Autumn's Veil - not as relevant as it would be in some other metas, but it could be a good piece of combo protection

  • Noxious Revival - grave recursion plus grave hate if I need it. Its instant speed, low cost and versatility make it look good in my eyes even if this deck can’t really abuse it like some other decks can.

  • Return to Nature - a new goodie from WAR. A strictly better Naturalize that can not only remove an opposing stax piece, but can double as grave hate in a pinch. As with Revival, grave hate isn’t the selling point, but a part of a package deal that even without it should be a decent option.

  • Natural State - a cheap way to remove opposing stax. It hits los of relevant stuff, since I don’t see much Chain veils, PEngines and whatnot around (excet when I’m the perpetrator...)

  • Lightning Greaves - protection and haste enabling together make for a tempting offer

I’d appreciate it greatly if you could comment on these and suggest which of these to add. If you have any other additions below 20$, I’m all ears.

Thank you in advance!

You can definitely make Omnath, Locus of Rage competitive. I have a friend who plays it.

Ramp is your best friend. And Sac Outlets are your best friend along with some wrath effects.

Purphoros, God of the Forge works wonders in the deck, especially along side the staples of Avenger of Zendikar and Rampaging Baloths .

Cards that you need to make the deck function better are Explore type effects: Oracle of Mul Daya , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Exploration , Explore , Enter the Unknown , Journey of Discovery , Mina and Denn, Wildborn , Summer Bloom , Wayward Swordtooth ... These work to great effect in getting the most out of Omnath's triggered ability and might hinder your opponents' plans of sweeping the board.

Also, you should be running more lands than the usual EDH deck because you want to be able to keep playing lands.

Recursion is also what will assist in the control metas: Regrowth , Eternal Witness , Den Protector , Greenwarden of Murasa , Recollect , The Mending of Dominaria ... These will help you maintain use of the cards that get removed. Also it allows you to let your general go to Graveyard and get it back to cast it for regular CMC.

Some form of protection is necessary: Heroic Intervention , Ranger's Guile , Blossoming Defense , Lightning Greaves ...

As for sac outlets, you have a great one in Goblin Bombardment and Greater Good and also Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar .

You could also use some triggers upon a creature entering the battlefield: Electropotence , Impact Tremors , In the Web of War , Mana Echoes , Warstorm Surge , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Colossal Majesty , Elemental Bond ...

And of course you could use some of the staples: Sylvan Library , Krosan Grip , Constant Mists , Beast Within , Word of Seizing ...

As for some sweepers: Chandra's Ignition and Star of Extinction are good ones. Hour of Devastation does some work. Insurrection is usually a good game finisher.

The world is your "oyster" good sir! So have at it. And happy shuffling. Hope this helps.

Craven183 on Lord Windgrace- Spring is Coming

Hey Joe it's Owen! I helped my buddy Ryan build a Windgrace deck a few weeks ago and it reminded me to take a look at your list and throw some suggestions your way (up to you if you want to heed them, of course).

So one of the first things I see when I look at your list is that you're missing one of the key things to Windgrace's land recursion ability: utility lands. Strip Mine and Glacial Chasm are huge stars in the deck since you're able to bring them back to field with either Life from the Loam or Windgrace's -3 ability. Paired with Wayward Swordtooth and other effects ( Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Oracle of Mul Daya , Exploration ), you can use strip mine to blow up 7 or more opponent's lands per turn. This puts you at a tremendous mana advantage and lets you eliminate pesky things like Tyler's Maze of Ith (a card you could run in here as well to prevent Windgrace from dying) or Lotus Vale (another card you could run since you'll just get the sacrificed lands back).

I would like to point out that Glacial Chasm is even better. This land prevents you from taking any damage. You have to pay (cumulatively) 2 life in your upkeep but instead you could sacrifice it in upkeep and then bring it back to field with Windgrace or Ramunap Excavator or Crucible of Worlds . By the way, Crucible of Worlds would be very good to run here.

It's great that you have The Gitrog Monster in here, because this is basically the Lieutenant of any Windgrace deck. You should run Dakmor Salvage here, as well, since you can dredge that land when it's in your graveyard (dredge meaning instead of drawing you can put that card from your graveyard to your hand and then mill however much). Dakmor Salvage has dredge 2, so lets say that in upkeep you have to sacrifice a land to the Gitrog Monster. You choose to sacrifice Dakmor Salvage, which hits the graveyard and thus triggers the Gitrog Monster to draw you a card. Instead of drawing, you then choose to dredge Dakmor Salvage and return it to your hand to mill 3. If you mill 3 lands off the top of your deck, you get 3 more Gitrog triggers to draw cards. This is incredibly useful for drawing through your deck and getting to your win conditions. Paired with a discard outlet such as Borborygmos Enraged or Noose Constrictor you can actually draw your entire deck (or in the case of Borborygmos, draw your entire deck and then kill everyone with it). Either way, Dakmor Salvage is an incredible piece that you should run in here and is only like $2.

Also, have you ever noticed how you create giant creatures like Multani and Zendikar Incarnate in here but someone always has ways to block them or Maze of Ith to prevent combat damage? Say goodbye to those days if you pick up Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord . Instead of being forced to swing out one at a time with your big creatures, you can activate Jarad and sacrifice Multani to him, causing each opponent to lose life equal to Multani's power (which tends to be big). The great thing here is that you can just replay Multani from the graveyard! And if you mill Jarad, he has an ability that lets you play him from the graveyard, as well! So the more you mill with cards like Dakmor Salvage, the closer you could get to assembling this kind of a win condition. Note here that Lord of Extinction is another great card you can use to sacrifice to Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord since its power/toughness will be equal to ALL cards in ALL graveyards. This creature tends to be bigger than 40/40 in a windgrace deck, so count on killing every opponent at once with one Jarad activation with this creature. Speaking of big creatures and dredge, Golgari Grave-Troll is another great card to run in here.

Lastly, you wanna make sure that out of your 99 cards you get exactly what you want in your graveyard. There's some cards that can do that for you. Entomb and Buried Alive allow you to fetch Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar , Dakmor Salvage , Life from the Loam , etc. and put that into the graveyard. Expedition Map and Scapeshift allow you to get the exact lands that you want (scapeshift gives hella landfall triggers for your creatures), and Animate Dead and Necromancy can allow you to pull your creatures back out of the graveyard when you need them.

Again, these cards are just some suggestions. But you've been playing Windgrace for a while now and I thought I'd toss this info your way! Love the look of the new Orzhov deck and how interactive it is. See ya thursday!
