Riftstone Portal Discussion
2 months ago
Already done, although I would like to point out that I have a hidden counter to Blood Moon in Riftstone Portal as well as some creatures that can produce coloured mana. Its true my only real spot removal is Mangara of Corondor, but I wouldn't use him until a dire situation like the use of one of those two cards. I can see how Platinum Angel may be more problematic, not many things circumnavigate "I don't lose" but by the time they get that out I can also easily have protections from losing of my own such as Iona, Shield of Emeria resulting essentially in a draw. I can live with that. I could throw in a Naturalize or Krosan Grip but chances are if they have a card like that they also have ways to protect it.
Thanks for the comments.

Firstly, thanks so much!
Secondly, with Grisly Salvage, yeh I'm definitely always taking a land however it plays alot better in this deck than Mulch would (I originally had Mulch in here aswell). Firstly, Grisly Salvage is going to be dumping more cards into my graveyard (with Mulch, we could potentially luck out and reveal all lands, including lands we want in our graveyard such as Riftstone Portal). And another big benefit of Grisly Salvage is that we can play it on our opponents end step etc as it is instant speed. I originally ran Drown in Filth in this deck which was another big reason why I would run Grisly Salvage over Mulch as I was actively wanting lands in my graveyard.
I really want to add The Gitrog Monster, I just can't find it in me to take anything out... Maybe Magus of the Tabernacle?
Dude, I love your suggestion of Strands of Night, that's a freaking amazing card. I think that now has priority over The Gitrog Monster as an inclusion. In fact, I just ordered one!

Just saw the comment you made. I see now. I was playing a more combo central build (and failing). With Riftstone Portal I have Crop Rotation and Harrow in the deck. I have more suggestions. Descendants' Path, Doubling Chant, Reaper from the Abyss, Grand Abolisher.

I would go more all-in on the landfall-style plan. Check out 3 colour charms from Alara block and 2 colour charms from Ravnica blocks for more multi-purpose cards. I'd use all of your Maybeboard cards except Kefnet the Mindful too.
Ideas: Vinelasher Kudzu, Dreamscape Artist, Pilgrim's Eye, Path to Exile (Over Swords to Plowshares), Deprive, Knight of the Reliquary, Oracle of Mul Daya, Thaumatog, Lithatog, Scapeshift, Aggressive Mining, Dryad Arbor, Riftstone Portal, Solemn Simulacrum, maybe Awaken cards from new Zendikar?

Here's some things to consider.
I would remove the Oath of Ajani since you only have one planeswalker and the ++ counter isn't that great. If you're going to expand on the ++ counter theme, then look at Fertilid, Spike Weaver, or Spike Feeder and other cards to take advantage of those counters.
I would also remove the Arrest, Choking Restraints, Faith Unbroken, and Squirrel Nest as they don't really push your agenda. Garruk, Primal Hunter and the Sword of Body and Mind are good cards but they feel out of place in this deck. Consider removing Archangel and Serra Angel since they really don't have much beyond flying and/or vigilence.
Also consider Riftstone Portal to give all of your lands access to both colors of mana. Krosan Verge is a great card for this deck. With a Riftstone Portal in your graveyard, Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds can tap for colored mana.
