Beeeeboy on Alternate Win-Cons Kenrith

1 day ago

okay. I also run a Kenrith Win con deck with a caveat of no interaction with other players making the deck a true solitaire deck . Here are some notable cards I recommend and also strategies.

The rule of thumb while tinkering with my Kenrith deck is 1:1 ratio (2:1 for some strats). For example, 3 cards are responsible for winning the game using life gain. Celestial Convergence Felidar Sovereign and Test of Endurance . This means that your deck should consist of 3 ways (not including kenrith) to assist with the life gain strategy. There are gem cards that assist with two different type of alternative wins that are honestly life saving cards. BY this rule, it can help you limit to what is needed. Having 3 supportive cards central to 1 wincon card is a waste of space and those supportive cards become dead in your hands without a tutor or that actual win con card.

Here are some recommended cards to help with alternative wins

Wall of Blood - Now this card is real awesome. It assists with Near-Death Experience . Drop this card and near death experience together. In response to the upkeep trigger, use wall of blood to get your life total to 1 while having Angel's Grace as a response to pingers or burn. Wall of blood also assist in Mayael's Aria if you have the life count for it. 2 birds with 1 stone.

Scapeshift - this is for maze's end, however can also get some really great utility lands such as Kor Haven Maze of Ith Karn's Bastion or simply to mana fix. Work's well with Field of dead

Pir, Imaginative Rascal - Better proliferate, halves the time. He can reduce your work of Helix Pinnacle to half by activating the ability 1 at a time to get each of pir's trigger.

Hermit Druid - Just don't run basics and you get a cheaper, consistent Morality Shift without a need of an empty graveyard. 2 birds with 1 stone if you have 20 creatures and Mortal Combat . Get him back with kenrith if he get's shot down, give him haste... you already know

Demonic Consultation - With the lab man wincon. Just name a card not in your deck. and win on your upkeep. Basically better than Morality Shift or Leveler

Vedalken Orrery Leyline of Anticipation Alchemist's Refuge - what feels better than just winning without your opponent's reacting sorcery speed

Artifact lands and Dryad Arbor - Helps with Happily Ever After condition

Alhammarret's Archive - This is a feel good card. You draw more, you gain life faster. Good with those life gain win cons. Imagine putting a Mechanized Production on this bad boy. Glorious honestly.

some of these cards are way out of your budget if you have one. But honestly, this is more a joke thematic deck so why not proxy if your group allows. I always proxy my lands..

Oloro_Magic on Field of the Primeval Scape (Titanshift Combo)

Icbrgr: I really like Dryad of the Ilysian Grove though I do believe there will be times where Prismatic Omen is just better. The appeal to Dryad is that extra land-drop, fixing the big problem with omen, namely that it slows down your ramping if you choose to play it.

The one thing I will say about Dryad though is that it really screams for you to build around it, rather than simply put it into the flex slot (not to say it can't go there and I plan on trying that). If you are playing Dryad in a deck like titanshift I am more interested in playing with effects that abuse extra land drops. That would mean also playing 4 Once Upon a Time , 4 Arboreal Grazer , 4 Explore , and maybe a few Courser of Kruphix . Basically we want to abuse the acceleration this provides with valakut so an ideal play pattern would be something like this:

T1: (ouat if you have it) land + Arboreal Grazer + land (2 lands)

T2: land + Dryad of the Ilysian Grove + land (4 lands) + Arboreal Grazer + 5 lands (alternatively extra land for next turn instead of Grazer)

T3: land = 6 lands with Dryad enables Scapeshift getting 4 valakut and two lands = 72 damage on turn 3 or you can just play titan and do 12 presumably if you get valakuts and have none in play.

This is crazy powerful though does require a lot to go right, the above requires 8 cards, meaning you have to draw pretty well, but Once Upon a Time should help to fix any problems. The rest of the deck can be filled with more traditional scapeshift cards, meaning it isn't unrealistic to think that the deck could consistently go off on turn 3, if not likely turn 4. Additionally if one of the extra lands is Castle Garenbrig we don't need the extra ramp spell to make titan turn 3, so in other words the card's potential is sky high. What remains to be seen now is whether it will prove to be consistent enough to see play. In other words, to answer your question, this card has the potential to warp the deck around it, adding even more speed to the deck, or it can become more of a flex slot card, and a very good one at that.

I'll be trying both, just need to pick up a few cards to test out the version described above, but it looks promising.

mistarilledawn on Muldrotha Suicide Land Attack

Suicide lands you say? Titania, Protector of Argoth with Sylvan Safekeeper : sac all lands on opponent’s end of turn, gain a massive board. Scapeshift is great as well, is extra safe in case your graveyard gets exiled. Just hope no one boardwipes, or exiles your graveyard. If they do, well, gg. World Shaper / Splendid Reclamation are great safeguards.

I think you all make good points... the best case scenario I can from the hip think of is a path to an off-brand/mono green Valakut deck.

Maybe supplemental ramp and cantrips to help the way with Overgrown Battlement and Wall of Blossoms & Carven Caryatid as some filler with Sheltering Word ?

I dont think that this would be any better or more reliable than already established Titan-Shift though.... but its certainly neat to think about!

From Field of the Dead ’s Gatherer page:

7/12/2019 If multiple lands enter the battlefield simultaneously, possibly including Field of the Dead itself, all of those lands are counted. For example, if you sacrifice eight lands while resolving Scapeshift and search your library for five different basic land cards, two Field of the Dead cards, and one other land card with a different name, you’ll create sixteen Zombie tokens.

Sukuren on Scapeshift and Field of the ...

If I have, let's say 9 lands in play and cast Scapeshift sacrificing those 9 and grabbing 9 non basics including Field of the Dead . Will that interaction create 9 zombie tokens since all the lands enter at the same time and field of the dead is switched on? Or will it only create 2 zombies since there's a 7 unique land minimum to switch it on? What will be the result of this play?

True 4c fetching is very punishing if done incorrectly. On the topic of closing games would you consider Scapeshift as a decent "finisher"? Considering most of the burst dmg comes from things like Field of the Dead and Dark Depths getting it all out in one go would be quite nice. As the number of land tutors you have is nice, but as it's one at a time it telegraphs what your doing real hard leaving a opening for removal.

Looks good man =) For your first commander deck especially, really nice job. may I suggest Scapeshift to not only fix your mana but draw a bunch of cards. I really like this =)
