Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Amazing causal deck. I'm finding it difficult to spot very many possible upgrades.

Consider cutting a few of the lower impact big creatures for some more two drop mana rocks, a board wipe, a draw spell, a tutor and a few lower CMC support creatures? I'm guessing since you don't have Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond and Chrome Mox already that those cards are out of your price range?

Cards to consider adding:

A Delta and a Strand would help the manabase a lot.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Mortuary Mire
  • Halimar Depths
  • Djinn of Wishes
  • Diluvian Primordial
  • Artisan of Kozilek
  • Sepulchral Primordial
  • Twilight Prophet
  • Enigma Sphinx
  • Magister Sphinx
  • Darksteel Ingot
  • Commander's Sphere
  • Time Reversal
  • Fabricate

Good luck with your deck.

oh thats easy. lands are what's missing. 20 lands is not enough to cast things that cost 4+ mana. especially 7 mana. add dual lands like Polluted Delta , Watery Grave , and Drowned Catacomb .

hellhole3927 on The Unthinkable Graveyard, Zombie Self Mill

First off Taplands are going to hurt every deck so cut at least 2 Crypt of Agadeem , 4 Fetid Pools , maybe 1 Dakmor Salvage , and 2 Watery Grave (you shouldn't need that many). Add 4 Polluted Delta and basic lands. Also Bitter Ordeal isn't that great honestly unless built around. The first time I saw it I thought I could just do a ton of self-milling with it, but the permanents need to enter the graveyard from the battlefield (which makes it useless unless built around even in a very graveyard oriented deck). Also I would add 4 Damping Sphere to the sideboard, it 100% turns off Tron and Storm and slows other decks down. Finlly Sinister Concoction is a cool card, but seems too slow. I would recommend cutting it for 4 Fatal Push .

A question of my ignorance, hkhssweiss: You said to add the fetches excluding Scalding Tarn . Why would I want to include something like Polluted Delta in here? Why not just use a basic swamp as I don't need the option to find blue and I'm not doing any land recursion/landfall triggers stuff?

PlatinumOne on Turbo Thopter Depths

until you're more familiar with the competitive formats, i'd probably just label decks as "casual" when choosing the format.

firstly, you want to maximize your chances of drawing or searching your Dark Depths and Vampire Hexmage . max out your Sylvan Scrying , and add Expedition Map . the only thing i can think of that would reliably tutor out the hexmage is Muddle the Mixture , but at least it also helps protect you while you assemble the combo. "cantrips" such as Opt and Serum Visions also speed you towards your combos.

i'd also recommend more dual lands, mainly fetch lands like Polluted Delta and shock lands like Overgrown Tomb .

Not of This World will be really hard to cast unless an opponent is targeting your Marit Lage token, but other counterspells like Counterspell and Mana Leak are always useful. other options in your colors for controlling an opponent (to protect yourself and your combo) include Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek to pick off any removal spells that can get around Indestructible, and Abrupt Decay or Assassin's Trophy to remove almost any problem permanent an opponent may have already resolved.

since Essence Harvest and Rite of Consumption are sorceries, they can't be used in response to an opponents removal (such as a Path to Exile , which gets around "indestructible"). a Marit Lage token can generally just win by attacking anyway.

With the deck manipulation granted from Dragonlord Ojutai you should add Devastation Tide and Terminus for board wipes. Maybe even Entreat the Angels as a game finisher.

Card Draw:

1) Sensei's Divining Top

2) Scroll Rack

3) Rhystic Study

4) Mystic Remora

BTW, some of the following mana base suggestions are somewhat expensive and are not necessary, but would be helpful:

1) The rest of the Fetchlands: Arid Mesa , Scalding Tarn , Misty Rainforest , Polluted Delta , Windswept Heath , and Marsh Flats .

2) Cavern of Souls

3) Ancient Tomb

4) cut all the tap lands for previous suggestions or Basic Lands (trust me on this, they just hurt the mana base)

5) maybe if you add Cavern of Souls : Expedition Map and Tolaria West

6) Wayfarer's Bauble

7) Mana Vault , Mana Crypt , Fellwar Stone

Next cut every single planeswalker from the deck except Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

Maybe, Austere Command and/or Cleansing Nova

Spot Removal:

1) Condemn

2) Pongify

3) Rapid Hybridization

4) Grasp of Fate

5) Oblivion Ring

"MAYBES:"

1) Grafted Exoskeleton

2) Teferi's Veil

FINALLY... In my opinion the better way to build Dragonlord Ojutai would be a "voltron" control based deck. Simply beat face with a flying 5/5 which you can occasionally make stronger, but devote most of the deck to control to utilize Ojutai's deck manipulation ability to grant you a way to always find answers to opposing threats.
