Overburden Discussion

Finally made another big round of updates! Several new cards added to the main board including: Estrid's Invocation , Dawn of Hope , Smothering Tithe and Dreadhorde Invasion . Also added some older cards including: Overburden , Darksteel Mutation and Mesa Enchantress . To compensate I have removed Mystic Remora , Eldrazi Conscription , True Conviction , Journey to Nowhere , Aegis of the Gods , Nyx-Fleece Ram and Underworld Coinsmith . These changes reflect a continuing focus on improving the early game and overall consistency of the deck. Dawn of Hope and Mesa Enchantress are excellent card draw engines to help make land drops and dig for tutors pre- Enduring Ideal , while Smothering Tithe can either help ramp you or slow opponents down. Adopting a more "go wide" approach with token generators for the late game rather than going tall with Eldrazi Conscription and True Conviction has lowered the cmc significantly while also providing useful chump blockers early. Since several enchantment creatures have been cut Overburden has little in the way of downsides anymore and Estrid's Invocation essentially adds another copy of Copy Enchantment . Finally Darksteel Mutation has replaced Journey to Nowhere because it is much more effective removal for commanders in particular since it does not simply put them back in the command zone and your opponent will likely need a sac outlet to get it back. A few changes to the maybeboard include adding Spreading Plague and the recently cut Mystic Remora and Aegis of the Gods .

He is really good IMO. I got myself one to start experimenting with. I would add Overburden to this list.

Hey hkhssweiss! Sorry I've been taking so long to reply, I had some tests I had to study for. Anyway, I edited my deck again and here are the cards I took out:

Cards I put in:

Hopefully that's good, I'm not exactly sure. I think the mana base is pretty much finished, but I could add in a Rogue's Passage to let my Blightsteel Colossus through, as that is one of the only two win conditions in the deck besides taking their stuff. Is the deck finished, or would it be good to add in things like Mystical Tutor , Cryptic Command , Authority of the Consuls , or Copy Enchantment ?

Hello hkhssweiss! So, I like the cards you mentioned, and I will definitely use Overburden . About the high curve though, what would you suggest I take out to lower it? The only two things I could see might be Platinum Angel and Darksteel Forge . What do you think?

Also, with the mana base, I do have sort of a budget, but I already have the original duals and most of the other lands as well. I'm missing Strip Mine , Academy Ruins , Forbidden Orchard , Bojuka Bog , Inventors' Fair , and Spire of Industry . I only have the one fetchland, Flooded Strand , and might add the others over time, but not right now.

Necropotence is a powerful draw refill engine, if you fix your mana base you will always be guaranteed to hit triple black easily. There are also ways you can add in triple black by having burst mana in the use of rituals like Dark Ritual . The Venser's Journal and Necro synergy is great, but sometimes it will be a dead card in your hand but the lifegain never really is a detriment. I played Sen for quite awhile so it does draw a lot of hate. One card I do like a lot if your going in a creature light build is Overburden as pretty much you deny them of playing more creatures and if they do they bounce back a land which you can play. I would also go into a some extra turn builds to build up more advantage, cards like Nexus of Fate , Time Warp , or Temporal Manipulation are stellar cards to use.

Yeah I can definitely help with mana base, however depending on your budget it can go either way as land base are quite expensive. Utility lands aren't much of a problem aside from that one Strip Mine to deal with pesky lands like Gaea's Cradle and such. There are other synergy you can use like Notion Thief + Windfall / Dark Deal / Whispering Madness . The additions you add are great ones, but in personal opinion I still think the CMC curve is quite high and can still be lowered.

Hey I have a similar deck ( here ) and was wondering what you think? You gave me some great ideas like Trade Routes , Teferi's Response , Tragic Arrogance . I'm concerned about two things for our decks: wincons and stax. Torpor Orb , Rest in Peace , Overburden , Embargo , Containment Priest , etc are removal in a sense, but control decks like to respond and be reactive instead of proactive. What's your opinion on that, and what kind of non-infinite combo wincon would be good for UB? I've been considering Redeem the Lost , Research the Deep , and Pulse of the Grid as a redundant View from Above but they seem mediocre.

I wouldn't run it personally since I'm not on the land denial game plan. Also, in my experience, I tend to have a larger number of lands. That is a completely fair game plan for Lavinia. Land Equilibrium , Stasis , Mana Breach , Back to Basics , and over Overburden are all good options with Rising Waters as an mediocre backup.

If you want the real mean version you also run Ravages of War , Catastrophe , Armageddon , Sunder , and/or Cataclysm .
