Retreat to Hagra Discussion
2 days ago
I love landfall. I made an entire Modern deck built around Retreat to Coralhelm + Ruin Ghost plus Retreat to Hagra, Jaddi Offshoot, Lotus Cobra and Cliffhaven Vampire. It was a beautiful thing, and I enjoyed the "land matters" theme so much that eventually I split it into two Commander decks: Noyan Dar and the Gitrog Monster. I think that unfortunately Boza is right that it becomes too easy to abuse early on low CMC creatures that het out early (coughHedron Crabcough) - it's like getting a free spell from doing what you would anyway!

After a good time without play the deck, i put it on again to test and want to share my thougths.
- Collective Brutality is such a good card, but it cant be absolute substitute for Thoughtseize, we just need to deal with creature too. maybe a split 2/3~4
- Talking about creatures, we dont have removal for big creatures, for example the Gurmag Angler start to be played more and more with UB shadow in evidence as good choice.
- Talking about creatures  ... we definitely must up our wincon, like 3 Ob nixilis, too many times i could play many lands for nothing. We lose much life, Crufix seens a good card too (or Retreat to Hagra, act as offense and defense at the same time.
this is what i saw this day, let me know if you are interested on this yet, and know about this take.

Retreat to Hagra and Retreat to Kazandu were considered but i couldn't find a spot for them. Polluted Bonds is reliant on my opponents so I'm on the fence about it. Collective Voyage only gets basics so not a huge boon for me. My basic count is fairly low because fetches are a huge part of the game plan.

if you had Retreat to Hagra with it's landfall ability you could be be gaing life with your land drops and if you have Polluted Bonds when your opponents drop a land you gain 2 life and opponents lose 2 life and to top it off throw Collective Voyage in there you will gain a lot of life this way and do a lot of damage to your opponents because even if they don't pay mana and you dump a shit ton of mana into it they still have to drop lands and trigger you other 2 enchantments just something to think about. here is my lord of windgrace deck if you want to check it out.

If you're looking for noncombat wincons, you can try Borborygmos Enraged, especially with Creeping Renaissance to return lands for more discard. Borborygmos can do infinite damage by discarding Dakmor Salvage with Gitrog in play, as long as you have Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to shuffle your graveyard back into your library.
Other noncombat wincons you can try are Retreat to Hagra if you have enough landfall, or animating lands with Living Plane or Nature's Revolt then killing them with Massacre Wurm. Those land animation enchantments should also give infinite mana and combats with Aggravated Assault.
For other ways to achieve infinite landfall, you can check out the writeup of my Windgrace deck.

Hey AdmiralFisticuffs! I really like the idea of what you're trying here, since so many of the lands matter creatures are Elementals, and Horde of Notions is just so cool with its ability. I was slightly disappointed not to see Primal Beyond in the deck given the title. Cavern of Souls could be helpful if you're expecting counterspells. You should probably cut Tabernacle for a more casual meta. You need more extra land play cards if you are playing so many lands, like Wayward Swordtooth, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, and Storm Cauldron.
Hedron Crab and Mesmeric Orb could help you fill your graveyard, and also mill opponents out for a win. Retreat to Hagra and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen can burn your opponents. Cosi's Ravager does the same but is an Elemental. Liege of the Tangle, Embodiment of Fury, and Embodiment of Insight can animate your lands to attack, and since they become Elementals Coat of Arms, Door of Destinies, and Shared Animosity make them really big.

one thing _Delta_ think about Collective Voyage if you play this with Polluted Bonds and Retreat to Hagra and lets say you are the only one paying into it and you pay 9 and one forest you are dealing everyone 18 damage and a lot of life because they are forced to search for lands and and put them into play.
