Scorched Ruins

Land

If Scorched Ruins would come into play, sacrifice two untapped lands instead. If you do, put Scorched Ruins into play. If you don't, put it into its owner's graveyard.

Scorched Ruins Discussion

precociousapprentice on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

1 week ago

Thinking about utility lands lately, I started to consider Thespian's Stage and Vesuva. At the least, they both come into play and are mana producing lands, potentially any colored. Both would copy a Maze of Ith or Kor Haven for added protection. They could both copy any of my multiple mana producing lands like Lotus Vale, Scorched Ruins, Boros Garrison, Orzhov Basilica, or Rakdos Carnarium for some extra ramp. They both could copy a Sea Gate Wreckage, Rogue's Passage, or Slayers' Stronghold for value in those areas. Vesuva could be dropped early to copy any mana producing land and then bounced with a bounceland like Boros Garrison, Orzhov Basilica, or Rakdos Carnarium. Thespian's Stage would not need to be bounced to continue to produce the most value for me throughout the game. I am pretty sure I would not want to run a Dark Depths myself, but it would open the possibility if I ever wanted to, and in a pinch it could counter those pesky Dark Depths combo decks out there that I may eventually face (I know, likely a rare occurrence, but wouldn't that just be amazingly dramatic?).

Anyway, does anyone have any opinion on both Thespian's Stage and Vesuva? I am leaning more toward Thespian's Stage if I only use one, since it comes into the battlefield untapped and seems more flexible than Vesuva, but I could be convinced to run both.

Additional Update:

With the removal of Land Tax and Scroll Rack, I have less need for basic lands. With that in mind, I can remove the remaining four basics and replace them with utility lands that are on theme.

Out:

Plains x2

Mountain

Swamp

In:

Flamekin Village - Haste for my Master of Cruelties, as well as other attacks. It can be used to make other people's creatures have haste, so it adds another political element to the deck, and a pseudo-Pillow Fort in a similar vein to Duelist's Heritage.

Rogue's Passage - Making a big Hatred or Master of Cruelties attack unblockable is a game ender. Also possible to use as a pseudo-Pillow Fort, you just have to wait until they declare attackers and who they are attacking before using it or you could find yourself on the wrong end of a backstabbing unblockable attack.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All - Removes some of the danger of running into a Counterspell.

Scorched Ruins - Both Ramp and trims lands. Sort of like the Sol Ring land to my Lotus Vale.

StopShot on Help generating infinite colored/red mana ...

@Panas, It's all good.

I came up with one infinite mana combo, but I feel its pretty messy and was hoping someone would have came up with a better one. Basically you'd need Candelabra of Tawnos + Clock of Omens + 2 artifact lands such as; Ancient Den, Darksteel Citadel, Great Furnace, Vault of Whispers, Blinkmoth Nexus, Inkmoth Nexus, or Mishra's Factory and then you'd need the mana to untap those artifact lands that are untapping Candelabra of Tawnos such as three bounce lands (such as Orzhov Basilica) OR Lotus Vale + a bounce land//Deserted Temple OR Scorched Ruins OR Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

The problem with dragons is the casting cost... Sol Ring and Scorched Ruins ?

Also give your own creatures haste and slow your opponent with Urabrask the Hidden ?

rockleemyhero: Thanks! The deck and the primer were both a lot of fun to make. I really want to push him to the limit, whatever that may be.

The Sideboard isn't a traditional Sideboard at the moment. It's more like a list of things that are the closest to be included or switched out with something. The Maybeboard is cards I don't want to forget about, but chances are there is a Sideboard card that is closer to taking the slot.

The Land Destruction cards and the Thornbite Staff are taken out of the main deck just for my regular playgroup. The Mana Rocks are eventual replacements for Lotus Vale/Scorched Ruins/Myriad Landscape. The Stax effects are meaner versions of cards I am currently running, that will probably be FNM includes as well. Strip Mine is going in as soon as I get one. Warbreak Trumpeter or Siege-Gang Commander are possibly replacements for Chancellor of the Forge, as I don't want to get too light on the token generation.

Thanks for showing interest, and if you have any other questions about includes just ask!
