decided to replace 3 plains for 3 Painted Bluffs so you can get the red part of Leave / Chance to reduce on the dead draws this deck can sometimes get. Helps cycle through your deck a bit faster since there is no real good options for drawing cards either that isn't an artifact.

Since you will be using your Deserts to cause some kind of destruction, you might think about using Crucible of Worlds or Ramunap Excavator, even though they do not go well with your theme, they will help. They could be your oasis in your desert theme.

Painted Bluffs and Survivors' Encampment are deserts that can tap for any color mana. I would also add in search lands like Evolving Wilds to help get your landfall triggers.

Hope you like my suggestions. Ask for what to take out for the suggestions, the lands are easy. I would trade them out for your basics. I would take out Boil and Acid Rain for your "oasis" cards, just because they target specific cards. Not much help if someone is playing black/white/red.

That seems like a good idea. I think the mana cost of Painted Bluffs's ability is more annoying than the life cost on Corrupted Crossroads.

Maybe you should test it first though.

Okay, just ordered a The Scarab God & 3 Fetid Pools, plus the Relentless Dead & a 4th Cryptbreaker! I will back the Fetid Pools up with a Painted Bluffs, which doesn't enter tapped. What do you think about adding Razaketh's Rite to get to the The Scarab God easier? I don't want to pay for a 2nd Scarab, & I already have a Razaketh..

I did some research and I'd replace Rhonas the Indomitable with Ramunap Hydra. Its a 3/3 for 4 mana, but can easily become better with Ajani and dagger of the worthy. Even though it doesn't have deathtouch and indestructible it has vigilance, reach, and trample. If you get Painted Bluffs out then it becomes a 4/4. The best part is that it's only 39 cents on card kingdom!! I tried to find 5/5 creatures that were low mana cost, but I couldn't find any that you didn't have to put -1/-1 counters on and I've never been a fan of that mechanic. I also tried to find a card that was green or black since those are the main colors of the deck.

P.S. I added The Locust God for convenience. It is a pretty costly card, but don't worry if it is out of your price range because it isn't needed. It's just a nice mechanic to have in the deck since you can draw a lot of cards with bolas. It is also a pretty big hitter(4/4).

gumbogogo and Legendary_penguin_of_death, to keep this in the budget range, I may add some cards to the version I make at home as I open them in packs. I don't doubt that more early mana is heavily needed, but the only ones that mana fix and are under a dollar are Survivors' Encampment and Painted Bluffs (and Evolving Wilds), so I'll put more of those on this version as a base for people wanting to build a good deck at home for less than $30 and look at what I have to add to my personal one at home.

SailorJoeV, thanks! I've made some revisions based on your suggestions. (I live in a small town, so I'm still waiting for folks around here to crack Scorpion God; I didn't get a single one in my Booster Box.)

But yeah, even without The Scorpion God, I've been beating even my friends' casual decks consistently. The synergy is wonderful - the biggest problem I face now my choice. I have...

  • A lack of board-clear without the Archfiend of Ifnir / Grind / Dust combo
  • A strong feeling that my lands and mana sources could be much, much better. (Should I go for more lands? Land fetch? Utility lands?)

I'm thinking of adding 2x Westvale Abbey  Flip, but should I try...

Painted Bluffs

Sheltered Thicket or Desert of the Glorified

Evolving Wilds with basic lands and then utilities like Endless Sands?

And would it be worthwhile to add 3x Gate to the Afterlife and 1x God-Pharaoh's Gift for synergy with 2x Archfiend of Ifnir?
