Rocky Tar Pit Discussion

In this style of deck I like playing Life from the Loam as it synergies really well with what the deck wants to do. Also, fetchlands work really well with Crucible of Worlds but if you do not have the budget for them, Rocky Tar Pit and Mountain Valley are good budget alternatives. Additionally, with you running Scapeshift you could run Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle as a combo finish with enough mountains. Also, if you find yourself low on cards, I really like the card Painful Truths as a solid draw engine in the early game outside of Lord Windgrace. I also like additional ramp that can be provided in cards like Farseek and Sakura-Tribe Elder . Hope this helps!

Here is my omnath deck. The more expensive cards aren’t fully necessary in it but help it. Burgeoning is incredibly good though and so is Scapeshift , they are worth the price. I think you have too many creatures in your deck and not enough land and ramp. The idea here is to just spew out land...all the land. Lands that get other lands are great so you can get multiple landfalls per turn. The panoramas, Myriad Landscape , Rocky Tar Pit , Grasslands , Mountain Valley these are all necessary and super cheap. Ghost Town is an absolute must, it guarantees land drop every turn. You also don’t need those life gain lands, they’re too slow. Ramunap Excavator is great for playing your lands that fetch other lands, this allows you multiple land falls per turn. More ramp means more landfall also. You need all the ramp you can, so that you can get omnath out as early and often as possible. Plus once he’s out the ramp triggers more tokens.

If the above cycle is still expensive, you can use Irrigated Farmland , Fetid Pools , Canyon Slough , Sheltered Thicket , Scattered Groves . Also: the cheap cycle Flood Plain , Bad River , Rocky Tar Pit , Mountain Valley and Grasslands pairs well with the cycles mentioned before.

Here's what I've found, and while this is taboo to talk about especially with all the modern players these day, you don't need fetches unless you are in a ridiculously competitive meta. There price just isn't justified for a slower format like commander. I would definitely recommend the slow fetches, which you're already running one of, Grasslands , Rocky Tar Pit , Bad River , Flood Plain , and Mountain Valley . I have great experiences with these and while they may be a turn slower, I've found that turn doesn't really matter. It surely helps my wallet. Other than that, this looks like a pretty standard Marchesa deck, except for the theft. Any reason you're running that? I'd love to know.

Slow Fetches, like Rocky Tar Pit aren't Modern Legal, but are still Fetches, or the old filter lands, like Darkwater Catacombs that are in the same boat, could help the colour fixing in modern without reprinting Fetches or Shocks.

Adding things like Vandalblast over Meltdown , Running something like Mana Geyser would help for your big X spells. Rather than Fireball something like Jaya's Immolating Inferno might be better. In a two colour deck running Rocky Tar Pit serves no purpose.

I would complete your cycle of forest duals and get Krosan Verge , Nature's Lore , Ranger's Path , and Skyshroud Claim . At that point, you can also look into the "slow fetches" from Mirage: Grasslands , Rocky Tar Pit , Bad River , Flood Plain , and Mountain Valley .
Mana Confluence and City of Brass are worth the pain. Path of Ancestry is great in a 5-color tribal deck. Exotic Orchard tends to be good in multiplayer. Forbidden Orchard is a fun political card. For rocks, I would look into Fellwar Stone .
