Scrying Sheets Discussion
3 days ago
Yeah, that sounds like a good idea, doesn't it? Some drafts of this deck before I put it up on this site did indeed have Mouth (along with other utility lands like Dark Depths or Mosswort Bridge) but what happened was that actually slowed the deck down enough that it wasn't really worth it. Depths, to go into more detail than I gave in another comment, still costs thirty mana, and while that's doable, there are a lot more powerful things you can do with this deck if you have thirty mana. I'm not even sure Scrying Sheets is worth it yet, and that's the whole reason the Forests are Snow-Covered to begin with.
More to the point, Mouth of Ronom has a few problems. It costs six total to activate (five plus tapping itself), which, pre-combo is all or almost all of your lands, and once you're well into your combo, there isn't a lot of hate that can stop you that would require creature removal. At least, I haven't seen very much in my meta. Maybe yours is different?
Another problem, and maybe this is a little obvious, is that it's not a Forest, which is important when you're working with Sasaya. It will always only provide a single mana, even as your mana gets exponentially large, which means it's likely to just sit in your hand until it needs used. If it's likely stuck in your hand all game, the only relevant text is its land typing, so why not just make it a basic?
I will admit the deck is answer-light. Primal Command is the only card I use as an answer regularly (a card that also functions as a tutor), and I've eschewed cards like Hurricane and Goblin Cannon, which are answers that can also function as win-conditions should you draw them. This can promote a sort of "head-down, solitaire" style of play that some people find distasteful but I kind of like every once in a while.
Good luck with your build if you do come back to this! Sasaya's definitely a lot of fun.

In regards to Hammer of Nazahn vs. Darksteel Plate the upsides are completely negated by the fact that the hammer itself is not indestructible. That goes a long way to keeping Jaya around and makes your opponents have to deal with the armor in some other fashion, which isn't necessarily as common in typical builds, especially ones that aren't running Anguished Unmaking or Utter End.
Also, the equip cost of the armor is much cheaper since you only get the hammer's reduction/attachment when it enters for the first time. 4 to equip is really rough.
And the +2/+0 is negligible when it is on Jaya, as you're much better off using her Incinerate or Inferno abilities for damage than attacking or blocking anyway.
Snow lands + Scrying Sheets are a decent add, especially with Extraplanar Lens. You might whiff a lot on only 28 lands, but the opportunity cost is pretty low so a lot of decks do go down that route. Also, Jaya was around during the Ice Age, so it's super on flavor.

DangoDaikazoku okay! So I've added Lightning Shrieker and have temporarily taken out the previous suggestion of Hedron Archive. I felt that between Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault and Grim Monolith, I'm content with the artifact ramp as is, and this allows me to not take away from the Dragon roster!
As for the Snow Mountains I completely forgot about Scrying Sheets so I've added that as well. This is a great way to let us peek at the top deck if I ever have available at someone's EOT, and it's terrific card advantage. A few fetch lands and Madblind Mountain have been added as well. The shuffle effect of the fetches can be quite handy if needed, and Madblind has a constant shuffle effect if our top deck is our enemty

You have obviously have pored over each and every card choice carefully and painstakingly. I thought I saw one more possible upgrade in the form of Snow-Covered Mountains and Scrying Sheets, only to find out that you already are working towards them. Great deck!
EDIT: Found a possible card that you might be interested in! Hammer of Nazahn has some upsides over Darksteel Plate that may make it a compelling replacement (or addition but I don't know what I'd cut!)

I hear ya Boza... Damping Sphere doesnt have anywhere near the effectiveness of those cards and only has a few matchups where it conditionally useful such as izzet/merfolk brews missing landdrops...but then again i think just about every matchup is nice when the opponent misses landdrops lol.... its just the closest thing i can come up with to mimic the disruption of Blood Moon thats in skred red in the same way that Silent Gravestone and Arch of Orazca dont exaclty equate to their desired counterparts of Relic of Progenitus or Scrying Sheets.
This may very well be a disaster jparker-sartori21 however; i figured using the tappedout community as a resource for ideas could help because there are Way better/"In-the-know" brewers on here than i am.... and besides arena is free so why not :p
my "Real" decklist that i run on arena is very similar list to that Argy has being a Dragon brew and burning out all the threats and then just Demanding Dragon them to death.... it definitely has satisfactory win rates (for me anyway) I was just looking for a new route to take with spending my wild cards for building an alternative brew....that wasnt some God forsaken token deck.
