Spootyone on Mummy? Are Zombies Real?

2 weeks ago

Alright sounds good. I'll keep my advice to that then.

First things first, let's deal with the basics. The land count of this deck is a couple short of where it should be at given your curve. As you may already know, most decks sit comfortably at around 24 lands, and I think the curve on this deck is going to end up in a spot where 24 is the correct number. The lands, themselves, also could use some retuning, as you seem to be using some very suboptimal choices when there are better ones out there. For example, you are running arcane sanctum, which is effectively a "bad" Orzhov Guildgate in this deck. You could instead be running 4 copies of Concealed Courtyard, which would be a great alternative. If that is not in your budget, then even Scoured Barrens or Temple of Silence are marginally better alternatives.

Additionally, I think Sunscorched Desert doesn't have a real place in the deck. The colorless mana is going to be a severe hindrance to you and dealing one damage isn't going to matter nearly enough. Cradle of the Accursed is also a little mediocre at the cost of not tapping for any colored mana, so I also think it isn't good enough to make the cut. Budget withstanding, I think this is how I'd run the mana if it were up to me, but with still keeping the general base you had:


4x Concealed Courtyard

4x Caves of Koilos

4x Isolated Chapel

3x Tainted Field

1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

6x Swamp

2x Plains


The main thing to note about this mana base is that it is Swamp-centric. Many of the dual lands require you to have a swamps on the field before they become real duals. Godless Shrine would be great because of this, but its also a little pricy. Let me know what you think of this before we get to anything else.

Oak_Guy on Athreos God of the Orzhov

Scoured Barrens is a must include, even if you just replace Salt Flats. Also, how about Radiant Fountain or Kabira Crossroads? Your land count is kind of low, I would add Kor Cartographer and/or Liliana's Shade. Recur them early and often with Athroes, Phyrexian Reclamation, Ravos, Soultender, etc. For further land triggers I started to run Ruin Ghost, bounce those life gain lands. Don't forget to tap them before you bounce them.

If you want little dorks, Deathgreeter and Soul Warden are in my Karlov of the Ghost Council deck.

How about Karlov himself, or Treasury Thrull ? I have gotten huge value from both.

If you average game is 3+ opponents, Shattered Angel is great value.

And get Thought Vessel or Library of Leng and ditch Spellbook, very little value from that card.

Tio_Infernape on B/W Warriors

The deck is already pretty nice, not much to add i think

Unless you already have the Concealed Courtyard, you may want to switch to something like Scoured Barrens, Forsaken Sanctuary or even the Caves of Koilos that are cheaper versions of it.

Lord.of.Innistrad on athreos deck

You could throw in some board wipes, since Athreos is indestructible, it won't destroy him. Maybe Fell the Mighty or Fumigate. If you have a bunch of creatures out then you'll get them back unless your opponents pay a bunch of life. Also, you could consider Killing Wave. Another board wipe kind of card, with possible life drain.

There are more dual W/B lands, such as Orzhov Guildgate and Forsaken Sanctuary, if you didn't know :) I see you have Scoured Barrens though, which is good.

If you'd want to check out my budget Commander deck, that would be much appreciated :-) Cheers!
