Polluted Delta Discussion

blueisnofun update your decklist, also I'd suggest you look into Hero's Downfall and bringing Funeral Charm up to a 4 of on the budget side. If you're willing to spend a little more money, I think 3x Thoughtseize and 4x Polluted Delta could go a long way towards making the deck more competitive.

If you want to splash a little white to deal with Leyline of Sanctity, I can help you do that in a budget friendly way. Just let me know!

Sure thing. Sorry that took a while:



Mana base(33 is enough at this average cmc):

That's what I'd do and then playtest it and go tweaking. Hope that helps and also that it wasn't too brutal. For real tweaking please add a list of decks you play against or how a normal game looks like(amount of combo decks, creature decks, control decks per game). You do run lot's of creature spot removal, but I let that in, since you might need it.

SynergyBuild on Athreos, and His Apostles

My main concern of the deck is the "competitive" tag. That tag would imply this deck is a fully optimized, competitive list, able to see play against the best decks of the format, and still have a decent winrate.

This list, from what I see, is not able to accomplish this.

I honestly do not know what this deck is trying to do, as there was not a primer for it, nor an explanation, but I will look and see, If I am wrong in my analysis, please correct me, and I will apologize promptly if I am mistaken entirely.

It looks like a Shadowborn Apostle deck, that is using the apostles to cheat out few choice demons, of which there are 7 total, out of them Demon of Death's Gate and Ravenous Demon  Flip are simply large beatsticks, and so are basically useless for a cEDH deck, Indulgent Tormentor is the same unless you team with an opponent, and Rune-Scarred Demon is a Demonic Tutor on a stick. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is a big hate-on search, but the 10 life and sacrifice a creature should barely hurt a player unless they are paradox combo with Captain Sisay or Arcum Dagsson, and so they use a Swords to Plowshares on it or Pongify and then combo off. Harvester of Souls is decent card draw, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded is actual tutoring.

What can you tutor for or draw to win? Not much I am afraid you only have 6 removal spells, and they aren't very good for these colors, no Dismember or anything else really.

Without Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, Mana Vault, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Lotus Petal, or Chrome Mox type effects, you can't legitimately expect to pull a win with this deck at a competitve table, and your card draw is just horrendous.

At least I would suggest you do the courtesy of running your good tutors, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal and Grim Tutor (some decks don't need Grim Tutor), along with Necropotence for draw and Ad Nauseam + Angel's Grace for the draw your deck.

May I ask about you landbase?

Commonly, for a competitive deck, the usually 2-color landbase looks like:

Ancient Tomb and Gemstone Caverns (the extra ramp lands)

Scrubland and Godless Shrine (the fetchable duals in your colors)

Windswept Heath, Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand, Verdant Catacombs, Arid Mesa, and Marsh Flats (the 7 fetchlands in your colors.)

City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Caves of Koilos, Fetid Heath, Concealed Courtyard, Command Tower, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Reflecting Pool, Gemstone Caverns, and Tarnished Citadel (the 11 unfetchable duals in your colors)

Cavern of Souls and Phyrexian Tower (the useful utility lands of your deck)

1xPlains and 6xSwamp

This 31 card landbase is fully tuned and optimized for a competitive deck, why does yours not run the rest of the good fetches, and all of the good duals?

To be entirely honest, I don't think this is a bad deck, and don't want to offend you or your deck-building skills, but I would hope you drop the "competitive" tag or change the deck a lot, it is mis-leading as it is.

If you want any deck-building advice on how to make this deck competitive, I suggest heading on over to Why Every Commander is Competitive and learning from that resource I set up for new players to cEDH.

I've got a Polluted Delta. Any chance you have a True-name nemesis or Vendilion Clique you could trade so I can get closer to finishing Jeskai Stoneblade?

Title! I’m looking for any black fetch (Marsh Flats, Bloodstained Mire, Verdant Catacombs, Polluted Delta) to finish off Legacy Reanimator. I have a binder full of good cards like Invocations, Masterpieces, RL, staples. The only fetch I have for trade is Windswept Heath atm.

If you’re interested in a trade hit me up!

Yes, they do not contain mana pips () in the rules text or mana costs, and so are perfectly fine to run.

Technically you could run Polluted Delta. Not that it would help you because it can't fetch anything, but you could run it.

Hi VexenX

With the M19 cards spoiled, how do you feel about Liliana, Untouched By Death? She seems her 3 abilities synergies very well with the deck, but is it powerful enough to run? Some cuts may be Black Market as to me it has seem to underperform.

And how about the new land Morphic Pool, basically an Underground Sea except you can fetch for it with Polluted Delta which may also be a nice include :)
