If your deck relies on mulligans for the right hand, you should run 4x Serum Powder . Thirst for Knowledge is really bad in this deck, I'd swap it out for Treasure Cruise . Oh and only run 24 lands in this deck. 31 is bad for most decks, this one in particular. -4 Plains , -4 Island for sure. Then you could add in 4x Serum Powder and 4x Serum Visions too so you can help filter to the cards you need to pull out your combo. Or instead of the Serum Powder you could do 4x Gitaxian Probe so you can filter without spending mana and have an idea what your opponent is up to before you throw down a Polymorph . Might save you from having to mulligan so much as well.
First off, control decks should minimum have 26-27 lands. Also End Hostilities is a strict upgrade to Extinguish All Hope , you'll want to cast it as soon as possible against faster decks to get maximum numbers of threats off the table. Mana Confluence is not a good choice of land for a control style deck, you want to play the dual lands that gain you a life rather than one that bleeds you dry. Your deck wants to deny your opponent resources and Master of the Feast is doing the opposite of that, it's worth serious consideration in replacement. Voyage's End and Scholar of Athreos are both very "do nothing" cards, the contribution they provide is minimal and would be much better suited as more Dissolve s or End Hostilities . Dig Through Time is worth serious consideration, it gets you out of tight spots after you've emptied your hand of removal, it also pairs well with cards like Divination and Dissolve . Lastly, Scuttling Doom Engine seems nice, but you might want to look at Prognostic Sphinx . He doesn't die to most removal and can dig you to answers in tight spots. I would recommend adding in:
I hope it doesn't feel like too big of a change to your deck (I know 27 cards is quite a bunch). If anything else you don't have to take my advice at all, but I hope you give it even a little consideration.
Hello tappedout! So, the question I have today is about Fetchlands! I understand what they do and their uses, however, I really need some help as to how many Fetchlands to basic lands I need in my deck to make it effective. I am currently running 21 lands in my U/W Heroic deck,consisting of 10x Plains
, 5x Island
, 4x Temple of Enlightenment
, and 2x Tranquil Cove
. I was recently given the advice to run Flooded Strand
in order to improve draws and give more consistency to my deck. I was also given the advice to use the off color fetches, but I personally feel that would be overkill. So my questions boil down to this.
1.) How many Flooded Strand should I run?
2.) Given the answer to the above how many basic lands should I run?
3.) Unless I'm missing the point of something here that should bring my total land count, including Fetchlands, below 21, that being said, would the off color Fetchlands such as Windswept Heath and Polluted Delta be worth my time and money?
As always, thank you for your help! Here's my decklist, feel free to make any other comments and suggestions!
One of the cooler cards I own is a guru Plains . Wish I had the money to buy the other four for a set. Maybe one day!
Ok thank you, and yes I know that Death and Taxes is hate. I have Stoneforge Mystic which is my Enlightened Tutor . When researching Death and Taxes deck lists, I realize that most of the higher ranking death and taxes decks in the tournaments do have at least 2x Phyrexian Revoker , as it can be used to target so many things in legacy, a lot of the decks that I looked at ran 4x of Phyrexian Revoker . I was considering Serra Avenger , since it did so much for Shiels (Death and Taxes) vs Ross Merriam (Elves) in the recent SCG Legacy Open. I like -1 Phyrexian Revoker , -1 Mirran Crusader for +2 Serra Avenger . I like the combo between Flickerwisp and Fiend Hunter too much, its like an interchangeable Banishing Light . I prefer to leave the Sword of Fire and Ice in the sideboard though, as I think it fits better in the sideboard than main board. I do agree with -1 Eiganjo Castle for +1 Plains , but with Cavern of Souls being able to get a creature on the board that can't be countered is too strong. I like -1 Ethersworn Canonist to bring it down to a two of and add in 1x Spirit of the Labyrinth . Thank you for the suggestions, help is always appreciated.
