Shivan Gorge adds more opponent damage.

Switch Succumb to Temptation for Phyrexian Arena or budget option Underworld Connections for repeated card draw

Consider cycling lands for extra card draw e.g Canyon Slough, Desert of the Fervent, Barren Moor or similar.

Replace Shock with Searing Blood

Perhaps Rift Bolt could replace Lightning Strike as a quasi political tool?

Seismic Assault or budget option Molten Vortex ditches useless lands.

Swap Murder for Terminate or Dreadbore. Or use Seal of Doom as a political tool.

Nettle Drone and Ancestral Statue also combo kill with Rakdos.

And Torment of Scarabs would be fun!

I've got a bit of a game update as well.

I played in fnm with it again. Its still just w/u. Did pretty decent going 2-2

Round 1:2-1 Tron, I was shocked here. He had a few bad plays and saw them after he did it. I won first game. Had 3 ghostly prison on board along with luminarch and a nevermore naming all is dust. He never drew into his Karen or ulamog that game. Game 2 he got a turn 4 ulamog and destroyed me. Game 3 I had about the same board state as the first along with an Elspeth

Round 2:1-2 Storm, same as always they either had enough in their starting hand to go or I had enough time to get nevermores on board. I won game 1 and lost the rest.

Round 3:2-1 Seismic Assault Swans, I had played against his deck before. I named Seismic Assault as soon as possible to get rid of his main win con. I won game 1 and 3. Game 2 he got it off before I could stop it.

Round 4:1-1 storm, this round was draw. game 1 I called grapes hot and then had ghostly prisons on board after. He had empty the warrens main board but couldn't do anything. I watched as he had 50 goblins out but couldn't swing haha. I lost game 2 to him going off turn 3(my payback). We then ran out of time which pushed us both out of the top 4.

Not a bad night for the deck. I got the strands and fountains in the deck and have at least 2 leylines on the way. All in all I think I may be able to stay w/u after getting leylines

For now though, I'm adding 2 Rule of Law to the sideboard till I get Canonist.

I was also was told by another player to consider adding a 3rd Verdict to the deck for added consistency. I don't see a point in adding a third but figured I'd let you know.

i really like the direction this is heading....Seismic Assault could be some good tech in here?

MStranger on Kill It With Mountains - Borborygmos Enraged EDH

Thanks for the suggestion! I've thought about including Seismic Assault, but my concern is that it can't really go 'infinite' like Borborygmos can with Keen Sense or Snake Umbra, so you'd have to win through Praetor's Counsel + Seismic Assault or Creeping Renaissance + Seismic Assault . That might be enough to warrant its inclusion though, I'll have to test it!

Seismic Assault is a great backup plan! +1 for gruul and land based edh :)

Yes, it is the same thing. The misconception you have is that Seismic Assault still deals the damage even though it no longer exists. The game uses a concept called "last known information" for determining how that damage is dealt. If for instance Seismic Assault somehow gained lifelink and then was destroyed, the damage dealt would also result in you gaining life, even though Seismic Assault as it exists in the graveyard does not have lifelink, because it had lifelink as it last existed on the battlefield. It doesn't even matter if Seismic Assault had lifelink when the ability was activated, only as it left the battlefield. The same is true for Saheeli Rai, she can still deal the 1 damage to each opponent even if she dies before her ability resolves.

shinobigarth, thank you, yes, I have realized that.

Also, isn't it the same concept that if I use Seismic Assault's ability, and a player in response Naturalizes it, the ability is still on stack but when it tries to resolve there is no Assault to deal the damage.

Same thing, right? I think.

So my opponent has Saheeli Rai at 1 loyalty and does the +1. In response, I use Seismic Assault to kill it.

I thought the walker died, he says he gets to scary 1 still. How does it all work out?
