Charsur on Black/White Lifedrain Vamps

1 day ago

Just about any other type of dual land is better than a Orzhov Guildgate. Shambling Vent or Scoured Barrens might be the best fit.

Delta-117 on vampire changes

1 week ago

Hey there, I see your interested in building vampires too. I started doing up a list with all of my changes included, and this is what I have come up with so far:

There's just so many cards I wanted to cram into this thing and that is why it's currently about 5-6 cards over the limit, but this should still give you some ideas as to what to do with yours as well. Any feedback is appreciated on my own version!

Commander / EDH* Delta-117

1 VIEW | IN 1 FOLDER


I'm currently leaning towards edgar markov as my commander although Licia, sanguine tribune I do admit looks like fun too.

Anyways the first thing I would start with here for your deck is improving the mana base a bit and taking out things like Orzhov Guildgate and swapping them for things like Godless Shrine, Shambling Vent, Concealed Courtyard, and what not. Same goes for the Urborg Volcano swapping for Blood Crypt and or Smoldering Marsh, and Foreboding Ruins. Some other lands to consider adding if you want to pay more on this deck include; Cabal Coffers & Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, fetchlands such as Marsh Flats, Arid Mesa, and Bloodstained Mire.

Additionally i'm sticking with the life subtheme, and strengthening it actually a bit by adding Exquisite Blood once I acquire one, Debt to the Deathless and or Exsanguinate, Aetherflux Reservoir, Felidar Guardian, and Alhammarret's Archive. Also while not being a vampire Rhox Faithmender could help even more with this kind of strategy, and you can get around them not being a vampire by running cards like Mephidross Vampire and Conspiracy.

Others to get for this are Bloodline Keeper, Necropolis Regent, Kalastria Highborn, Nirkana Revenant if you can afford it which would work great alongside previously mentioned Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers and furthermore Crypt Ghast, Magus of the Coffers etc.

I'm also likely using Anointed Procession in my deck, as I can't resist wanting to try that out alongside edgar markov's eminence ability, and other effects from Bloodline Keeper and Call the Bloodline. Then likewise I will be including cards that care about having a lot of creatures out preferably. So I will have Westvale Abbey  Flip, and things like Stensia Banquet, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and possibly some other cards such as Vampiric Fury.

But I think I have written enough already and better come to an end, I do hope anyways some of this is of help to you!

KALE434 on Oloro

Hey sweet oloro deck now by potent do you mean more controlling? ie:Winter Orb + Tangle Wire Or more of the Omniscience + Laboratory Maniac Win more combo? But for your land base I think you're fine unless you wanna upgrade to your shock lands(Hallowed Fountain,Godless Shrine and Watery Grave) or the Guild Gates cycle(Azorius Guildgate,Orzhov Guildgate and Dimir Guildgate). Though for a good addition I would suggest Glacial Chasm for some "you cant touch me" fun.

ellie-is on Just no.

Hey there! Looks fun, but I think you have way too many 4xs that cost way too much mana - in most formats against a good deck you'd never even get to play them - even with accursed witch, as her herself is a pretty high mana creature. I'd remove most of the five and six mana cards or at least reduce them to 2xs at most.

I think Ghostly Prison would be really good here, and that perhaps instead of Pacifism, or in addition to it, you could have some kill spells to deal with the creatures that make it into play or for when the opponent is able to cast spells on you. Some good ones are Smother, Go for the Throat, Victim of the night and Tragic Slip.

Finally, it's worth adding that you have no wincon and that it's probably a good idea to think about how you're going to win the game after you've stopped your opponent from winning.

PS: Instead of Orzhov Guildgate, why not Temple of Silence? Most people would advise against using lands that enter tapped at all, but if you're using them, might as well get a scry out of it.

Techmage45 on Mardu Minotaurs

In term's of your manabase there are so many way's you could improve it, depending on how much money you want to spend.

Some cheap (and really good) cards would be: Nomad Outpost, Scoured Barrens, Wind-Scarred Crag and Bloodfell Caves, Rakdos Guildgate, Boros Guildgate and Orzhov Guildgate to name a few. Even though these enter tapped it doesn't affect you that much since commander is a slower format. Isolated Chapel is a tad more expensive but would complete the cycle of checklands you're already running.

Something else I'd recommend you add would be some basic manarocks, in your case these would be Sol Ring(because sol ring), Rakdos Signet, Boros Signet and Orzhov Signet.

These are just some basic tips that a relatively budget however if you're willing to spend more there are better lands you could use but I'd say these and the bare minimum for a three colour deck to ensure you run well. I'd just cut some of the basic lands and replace them with these no worries.

Spootyone on Mummy? Are Zombies Real?

4 months ago

Alright sounds good. I'll keep my advice to that then.

First things first, let's deal with the basics. The land count of this deck is a couple short of where it should be at given your curve. As you may already know, most decks sit comfortably at around 24 lands, and I think the curve on this deck is going to end up in a spot where 24 is the correct number. The lands, themselves, also could use some retuning, as you seem to be using some very suboptimal choices when there are better ones out there. For example, you are running arcane sanctum, which is effectively a "bad" Orzhov Guildgate in this deck. You could instead be running 4 copies of Concealed Courtyard, which would be a great alternative. If that is not in your budget, then even Scoured Barrens or Temple of Silence are marginally better alternatives.

Additionally, I think Sunscorched Desert doesn't have a real place in the deck. The colorless mana is going to be a severe hindrance to you and dealing one damage isn't going to matter nearly enough. Cradle of the Accursed is also a little mediocre at the cost of not tapping for any colored mana, so I also think it isn't good enough to make the cut. Budget withstanding, I think this is how I'd run the mana if it were up to me, but with still keeping the general base you had:


4x Concealed Courtyard

4x Caves of Koilos

4x Isolated Chapel

3x Tainted Field

1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

6x Swamp

2x Plains


The main thing to note about this mana base is that it is Swamp-centric. Many of the dual lands require you to have a swamps on the field before they become real duals. Godless Shrine would be great because of this, but its also a little pricy. Let me know what you think of this before we get to anything else.

Lord.of.Innistrad on Athreos

4 months ago

You could throw in some board wipes, since Athreos is indestructible, it won't destroy him. Maybe Fell the Mighty or Fumigate. If you have a bunch of creatures out then you'll get them back unless your opponents pay a bunch of life. Also, you could consider Killing Wave. Another board wipe kind of card, with possible life drain.

There are more dual W/B lands, such as Orzhov Guildgate and Forsaken Sanctuary, if you didn't know :) I see you have Scoured Barrens though, which is good.

If you'd want to check out my budget Commander deck, that would be much appreciated :-) Cheers!

Waffleoflegned on It That Is Infinite The Third

Also, I'd reccomend doing the same with It That Is Infinite The First, just with Scoured Barrens and Orzhov Guildgate.
