This is what I had picked out before adding the fetchlands (assuming you want them):

The total on both ends (not including the fetches) is about 70

Cereal_Killer on Bloodline of an Ancient Coven

1 week ago

I think, since it's a tribal, you should definitely add Cavern of Souls

Some other good lands could be: Marsh Flats, Bloodstained Mire, Arid Mesa, Sacred Foundry, Luxury Suite (or, if you have money, Plateau, Badlands, Scrubland), Winding Canyons, Maze of Ith, Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, Wasteland, Bojuka Bog, Nephalia Academy, Slayers' Stronghold, Command Beacon, Arcane Lighthouse

If you want some combo in your deck you could add Exquisite Blood (goes in combo with Sanguine Bond) and Dark Depths, that goes in combo with Vampire Hexmage)

Nice deck:) I think Sacred Foundry might be worth testing:)

rockleemyhero on Marath, Bloody Stax

No prob! Like I said above, it's really important you have 1 cmc mana dorks. Any 2 cmc dork needs to be able to tap for multiple mana to make it worth it. Your curve is wayyy smoother going from t1 dork into t2 marath.

I don't think you need a board wipe, you have a flexible creature killer in the command zone and plenty of spot removal. I think the biggest mistake newer cEDH players make is playing cards to "not lose" when they could be playing other cards to win instead. I'd personally run another 1 mana dork or another cheap tutor in its place. In fact, I'd strongly recommend cutting all of your ramp that's more than 1 color that taps for 1 mana. Fertile Ground, Chromatic Lantern (although you may need to keep this one if you don't adjust the mana base, all the 2 cmc sorcery Rampant Growth variants really slow you down a lot. Wild Growth would be another card to consider.

If the budget is an issue and you already own the cards you have here, you can still get pretty cheap rainbow lands such as Command Tower, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and Tarnished Citadel. All the 1 cmc dorks are cheap as well. The only reason to play off colored fetches in your deck like Scalding Tarn is because you can grab essentially any color you need via Stomping Ground or Sacred Foundry. If you aren't running any dual lands without basic land types then the off colored fetches are really bad. The pain lands are excellent choices and are cheap as well.

Silvertusk Boar

Creature - Boar

Protection from blue.

Whenever Silvertusk Boar attacks, you may discard a card at random from your hand into your graveyard. If you do, Silvertusk Boar can not be blocked this turn.

Spells and spears seem to bounce right off it's hide.


Hope I did the challenge justice. I personally think this is a pretty cool Boar. I'd run it, especially in Madness decks. Probably just 2x because of the cost, but still. Free discard outlet and 4 damage? Nice.

I'm super happy because I got a Bundle of Guilds and pulled a Sacred Foundry, Vraska, Golgari Queen, Chamber Sentry, 2x Venerated Loxodon, 2x Ritual of Soot (Got a Golgari toolkit thingy, too), Runaway Steam-Kin, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, Light of the Legion, Dimir Guildgate, * Emmara, Soul of the Accord. (Card's are "meh" cost-wise but I love to play with under-impressive cards and get them to work, so I'm happy.)

So I kinda want to tinker around a bit and see if I can work up some Abzan jank. Haven't tried that for a while. I'm also super stoked that we got 2x new Gorgon creatures: Arisen Gorgon in 2019 and Pitiless Gorgon in Guilds. Between those, Assassin's Trophy and Fatal Push I think I can finally build my long-awaited Modern Gorgon Tribal!! :D That's been a deck on my radar for years now but it's always had way too high of a CMC to pull off. I think I can finally nail it down. And with Vraska, Golgari Queen having a super low casting cost, I can run it with her. Tons and tons of mass removal with a decent slew of cheaper Gorgons buffed by Metallic Mimic & Adaptive Automaton & maybe 1 or 2 Creakwood Liege with probably 1x Pharika, God of Affliction for duds in my Graveyard. Idk just yet.


  • "That's great and all TypicalTimmy, but what's your F-ing challenge?!?"

Let's go back to Tarkir (My most beloved Plane!) and go Abzan (Since those colors are on my mind). I'd like to see a functional Abzan Gorgon Hydra! Yup! What a design! Hehehe have fun!

Deco_y on Guilds of Ravnica: Spoilers and ...

3 weeks ago

I have gone to, I don't know, maybe a dozen or so pre releases in my MTG career. Now I have to say something that I used to rail on people for saying to justify their poor play.

I got the absolute worst card pool I have ever experienced playing the game of magic. The deck I actual managed to build is odds on one of the 5 weakest decks I have ever witnessed at a pre-release. Of my 5 non-seeded packs(I was Dimir), one of my rares was Thousand-Year Storm as well as Sacred Foundry and one being a Temple Garden. I only opened 2 removal spells and my best bombs were two copies of Watcher in the Mist. I managed to luck out and win my first game but overall went 2-1, 0-2. 1-2, 0-2, 0-2.

Just a painful, painful experience. When I got home I plugged in my free sealed event into MTG Arena, got a really good Boros pull, and reeled off 6 wins. But man that pool was legendarily bad.

_Delta_ on The Queen's Egg

3 weeks ago

I picked up some cards for my Sliver deck at the 2 prereleases plus the box I split with 2 friends. At the moment all I need to complete my manabase is a Breeding Pool, Blood Crypt, Steam Vents, Bloodstained Mire, Marsh Flats and Arid Mesa (skipping Scalding Tarn I believe to save on cost though tbh).

I got an Assassin's Trophy, Sacred Foundry, Temple Garden, Overgrown Tomb (via trade), another trade pending for a Watery Grave, 1x Doom Whisperer, 2x Mission Briefing, 1x Underrealm Lich, 2x Nullhide Ferox, 1x Mnemonic Betrayal, 1x Divine Visitation, 1x Impervious Greatwurm, among a few other things.
