Selesnya Sanctuary Discussion

Cut: Krosan Grip, Selesnya Sanctuary Boros Garrison Gruul Turf Explosive Vegetation

Add: Austere Command Myriad Landscape Blighted Woodland Polly raptor combo Hunting Wilds

Maybe: Cryptolith Rite

Note's: You are running a lot of ramp that touches only forests or basics, if you are going to include big ramp like traverse the out lands too and the basic grabbing lands which is an improvement to the garrisons I would increase your basic count maybe cut some of the tap lands.

RedDeckTries Thanks! Yeah when I was playing with the deck I noticed that some more lands would be helpful. Thanks for the advice. Definitely considering swapping Selesnya Sanctuary with something else.

33 lands is low. You have a decent amount of ramp but an 8cmc Commander that you should expect to have to recast. I'd go up to at a minimum 36. Basics are fine, or you could run Kessig Wolf Run. I would cut Transguild Promenade though. Since you're in green you have better ways of fixing your colors that don't make you pay extra to play it. I was testing this a bit and in my opening hand I got that and a Selesnya Sanctuary, which is just brutal for you. Besides that it looks like a fine start, maybe add in Farseek/Thunderherd Migration for more early ramping spells.

ForTheOldFrame on happy decks

digbickmcgee: People play Magic for a variety of reasons; I think WBG is a fellow Vorthos. Personally, I'm here for knights, thallids, and magical horses; for the powerful sense of old-fashioned civilization that Magic can often convey (nonbasic lands, Trading Post, Castle, Knighthood, Worship, etc.); and for the few musketeers we've gotten so far -- along with the magical pre-8th-Edition frame and the beautiful look of Mirage block. I'm not going to hold it against anyone for having strong aesthetic preferences of their own, especially not ones that seem to have a little in common with mine.

WBG: Look at the Enchantress deck archetype; also look at tokens and Storm, if you're a little flexible on violence. (The classic finisher for the High Tide variant of Storm decks is Brain Freeze, which is probably not up your alley. Tokens tend to involve fighting with knights, soldiers, and pegasi, under the command of figures like Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa, Radiant, Archangel, and the occasional real-world general like Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon"; I'm perfectly comfortable with this sort of semi-storybook violence, though it sounds like you might not be.)

Try winning the game by generating infinite mana and decking your opponent. Stroke of Genius is the traditional finisher for this, or, again, Brain Freeze in High Tide.

Nacre Talisman, Malachite Talisman, Staff of Domination, Sword of the Paruns, Argothian Elder, Priest of Titania, and Freed from the Real are in-color cards that it's very easy to build infinite-mana engines around. High-mana-output lands are the natural complement for most of these; look at Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Selesnya Sanctuary, Azorius Chancery, and Simic Growth Chamber. (Tolarian Academy, Gaea's Cradle, and Serra's Sanctum -- in order from strongest to weakest -- are the best infinite-mana-engine lands in the game, but they have prices to match. If using any of them nonetheless, look into Stormfront Riders and the Ice Age Talismans.)

Also, there's some white removal I think you could put up with: Swords to Plowshares, Path of Peace (look up the original art), Settle the Wreckage, Pacifism, Cessation. Look into the Circles and Runes of Protection, too.

I feel like this deck probably wants a lot of mana so you can make big plays like playing an etb creature and flickering it several times in a turn. For that reason I would suggest the bouncelands. They're a bit slow, but can make sure you keep hitting your land drops to get tons of mana. In addition, they can help with Palinchron combos, though probably not enough to actually go infinite without support. Simic Growth Chamber, Azorius Chancery, and Selesnya Sanctuary.

One neat card I like in this deck is Bramble Sovereign. It's another way to abuse etb abilities, and synergizes very nicely with flickering, since you can make a copy every time you flicker a creature.

For future reference: these are the dual lands I try to run in my two color decks, in case you decide you want to cut all those comes-into-play-tapped guildgates and such you still have listed from the precon. This goes for Slimefoot too; basically this is the "secret sauce" for the starting point for any two color deck I use:

1x Shockland Temple Garden, Overgrown Tomb

1x Bounceland Selesnya Sanctuary, Golgari Rot Farm

1x Painland Brushland, Llanowar Wastes

1x Scryland Temple of Plenty, Temple of Malady

1x Fetchland Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs

1x Filterland Wooded Bastion, Twilight Mire

And also:

If the deck is "fast", 1x Fastland Razorverge Thicket, Blooming Marsh

or

If the deck is "Slow", 1x Manland Stirring Wildwood, Hissing Quagmire

And then the rest is basics and a few colorless utility lands. I pretty much always run an Exotic Orchard and a City of Brass/Mana Confluence as well, but those are less necessary in a two color deck so I wouldn't prioritize it. There will still be special exceptions; for example, I also run Krosan Verge anywhere I can stick it, but that land only exists for the GW color pairing. A good mana base can go a long way to making your deck run smoother! So be sure to put some thought into that aspect of things as well.

Wouldn't bounce lands (Boros Garrison, Selesnya Sanctuary and Gruul Turf) be useful with Zacama? Pro: They're good with untap-effects. Con: They get targeted by Strip Mine.

Also Garruk Wildspeaker because of his untap-ability. It synergizes with Mirari's Wake and co.
