Sandsteppe Citadel Discussion

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid on Counting Counters

2 days ago

Welcome to mtg, dude! my first concern is the mana base, if you down have any pain lands (Llanowar Wastes, Caves of Koilos, Brushland), Sandsteppe Citadel should your only land that comes in tapped. good land count though, usually mtg decks have a 33% of lands, but I would consider more swamps and less plains, with forests staying high (especially with the Verdant Automaton's activated ability). I would take out Renegade Map, it does mana fix, but it doesn't ramp (consider Wayfarer's Bauble, Expedition Map for a good nonbasic land, or Sakura-Tribe Elder). And for combos: consider Barren Glory with Renounce, Spy Kit with Cornered Market/ Rememberance/ Pack Hunt. Also consider Tower Defense, Ranger's Guile, Heroic Intervention, Blossoming Defense, maybe Bonds of Mortality if you put in more removal, Young Wolf, Ghave, Guru of Spores. And if you like abzan colors, check out Fungal Growth. Plus I prefer the commander format over standard, there's lass turn 0 win assholes with Leyline of Anticipation, Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt, Show and Tell, Omniscience, Enter the Infinite. Hope this helps! If you or anyone else needs more help or have any questions, I'm always here.

Murmuring Bosk seems kind of an odd choice since you don't have a treefolk creature why not just run a Sandsteppe Citadel

Mulldrifter seems useful

Commune with the Gods also good dig

Jagd_Tallgeese on Energy Gives you Power

I have had a few fun times creating standard decks that utilize energy production to secure victory. Shielded Aether Thief would probably be a better replacement for Shipwreck Moray. It is 2 mana cheaper than the moray, and you gain energy anytime it blocks. The energy gain can be used to fuel this three artifact combo: Decoction Module, Fabrication Module, and Animation Module. The modules can feed each other as long as you have the mana and can pump your creatures to lethal levels. Land wise, some immediate additions would be Aether Hub, Simic Growth Chamber, and Sandsteppe Citadel. After that, look for as many dual lands in those colors as possible. I would replace Wind-Kin Raiders with Empyreal Voyager as the voyager is cheaper, has trample, and provides as much energy that it deals a combat damage. Token generators to consider adding are Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter and Master Trinketeer. Two decent token generators in blue for your deck would be Thopter Spy Network and Sharding Sphinx and they can help trigger each other's effects. You could also replace Multiform Wonder with Electrostatic Pummeler. Hope that helps!

Whatever happened to our beloved 0 and 1 drops? Our Ornithopter, Phyrexian Walker, Shield Sphere, Tasseled Dromedary, Yoked Ox, and Disowned Ancestor will feel jealous. Also, what of our beautiful Abzan friend, Sandsteppe Citadel? you surely didn't forget THAT, did you? Plus, I would like you to consider the beautiful art of the Dragons of Tarkir Evolving Wilds over the same boring old Terramorphic Expanse. Oh yeah, and what of the lovely Trees? The Tree of Redemption and, especially, the Tree of Perdition? Thank you for taking the time to read my feedback, and I hope you include one or more of my ideas in your deck! I'm actually building a deck similar to this one right now! a definite +1.
