Shefet Dunes Discussion

PhyrexianPreator on Morhpelicous - White Budget

Main-board ideas.

Eerie Interlude would help you deck out a lot. Also, if you switch four of your lands for Shefet Dunes you can run Eldrazi Displacer for a recurring bounce effect. In addition, if you run Emeria, The Sky Ruin you can return you creatures to play, namely the morphing ones.

As for side-board cards.... All are budget cards.

1) Kataki, War's Wage against artifact decks.

2) Nihil Spellbomb against graveyard decks.... however, if you want to make the most out of it you have to add in black/white lands.

Ideas for token production.

1) Legion's Landing  Flip can build a board state that can also save you.

2) Hoofprints of the Stag is slow, but can be a real pain when not dealt with.

I like the idea of your deck, but you need more ways to win the game. That is why I suggested the two token generators.

PaulaTicks - I've been debating on getting Angel's Trumpet. It does sound very interesting. I'll probably grab a copy of it and try it out soon. Thanks for the idea!

Pervavita - I do play against a guy who likes to use infect in a few decks so I may sideboard Righteous Aura once I get a copy. I've debated on Fumigate. One more mana but it could make for a ton of life with my group. I'll swap it out for a while and see how it does. I do run against a lot of regenerate so that is my only hesitation. Oath of Lieges looks pretty good. I don't really have too many issues with ramp despite being mono white. I actually have one so I might try it at some point. Thank you very much for the suggestions!

thrane - Howdy! That's a lot of good ideas. I really like Shefet Dunes and Isolated Watchtower. I'll be getting those soon. I have all of the others in a side sideboard lol. I want to try Oketra the True one of these days as commander. The other recommendations I'll probably try with her. There are so many neat cards that work with Darien. It's hard to make a solid set in stone list. But a lot of the fun has been pulling cards and trying different stuff out. No cards have really disappointed me yet. Anyway thank you very much for the ideas and input. It's greatly appreciated!

Here is some of my favorite cards in my Darien deck:


Jinxed Choker, does not look like a threat at first but when it gets around 8-10 counters people start to worry.
Mask of Memory can draw you a lot of cards + if you have Land Tax, it can turn lands into pure gas.
Secure the Wastes can win you the game out of nowhere.
Luminarch Ascension is a power house and puts your oppenents in a strange spot with Darien out, "to attack or not to attack".
Oketra the True is a very good plan B commander when Darien is either removed or not working.
Hour of Revelation is a must.
Buried Ruin, Isolated Watchtower, Scavenger Grounds and Shefet Dunes are some great utility lands, worth trying.


I've played my paper Darien deck for a year, at my local store an in my playgroups. He is too much fun!


Best regards

Shefet Dunes as another hurt yourself land you can run in a mono color commander (Ancient Tomb as a non budget consideration, or a proxy if you can run them in your playgroup).

you may find plenty of use out of Oketra's Monument, dominaria also has some pretty good creatures in Baird, Steward of Argive as a soldier with a defensive effect, Kwende, Pride of Femeref on the other hand interacts well with archetype or field marshal changing that first strike into double. Brave the Elements can really save your board from red board wipes while also being an option to blast past another token deck's army.

if you find yourself facing some stronger commander decks Thalia, Guardian of Thraben can tax those cantrips and most combos competitive lists run, Stony Silence can shutdown the broken mana rocks, Angel of Jubilation can shutdown fetch lands and sac combos Rest in Peace stops those pesky reanimation and delve strategies.

I like that you just splash the green for Knight of Autumn and Assassin's Trophy. Knight of Autumn seems like it will be a great addition to knights. I dont think you can go hard into green for Steel Leaf Champion as Pabs4444 suggests. Even with shock lands History of Benalia 2 white cost tends to compete with it (especially in 3 color decks).I do agree with Pabs4444 that Vraska, Golgari Queen might not be at home in this deck. Wihout Ajani along side her she will just end up hurting your board state to try and draw some cards (which will probably be of equal power to what you already have out or a land). Her ability seems too costly and better at home in token decks or ones with dedicated graveyard mechanics. I'd rather run 3 Ajani, or maybe even a Karn, Scion of Urza instead. Or you could put 1 of your Vraska's Contempt mainboard. I find that I tend to always side in 1 or 2 Vraska's Contempt in most match ups anyways so I started main boarding more. Lyra Dawnbringer might be another card to consider in the sideboard. The lifegain can shutdown red if they haven't saved an answer for her and is a pain for green to deal with as well.

I don't know how good Paladin of Atonement will be without Shefet Dunes and Ifnir Deadlands to help it. I do think Midnight Reaper will prove to be an amazing card and should be considered for a full playset.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd on Pay Your Taxes

2 months ago

Oppressive Rays and Soul Tithe are basically just strictly worse Path to Exile. If you want to deal with something like a Primeval Titan or a Wurmcoil Engine, then you won't be able to because your opponent will happily pay the tax and kill you anyway. I know you want tax tribal, but I think you should make an exception for Path to Exile.

Mana Tithe is a beautiful card, but I don't think it's good enough. Especially if you have Thalia in play and have to pay 2 mana for it.

Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Aven Mindcensor are great tax cards. Especially Thalia.

Do you need Nykthos? I guess it can allow you to cast Chancellor and helps you cast Spelltithe Enforcer, but I don't think either of those are necessary by any means. I think 2 more Field of Ruin or 2 Ghost Quarter would be better.

15 plains is enough for everything except Archangel of Tithes, but if you crack your Field of Ruins then those turn into plains anyway. It's pretty rare that you'll draw 2 Zhalfirin Void.

Shefet Dunes is a neat trick for closing games. It doesn't tax, but it's also a land so I think that's grey area.

I think there are too many 4-drops. I also think you have too many 3-ofs and not enough 4-ofs. I think Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Vryn Wingmare, Leonin Arbiter, and Judge's Familiar should be 4-ofs. I think Baird is the worst of your 4-drops, but I'm not sure. Windborn Muse dies to Lightning Bolt, which feels bad.


What I would do:

Remove Chancellor of the Annex, Baird, 1 Windborn Muse, Spelltithe Enforcer, Oppressive Rays, Soul Tithe, Mana Tithe, Nykthos, and 1 Plains (18 cards)

To add 4 Path to Exile, 3 Thalia, Heretic Cathar, 1 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, 1 Leonin Arbiter, 1 Judge's Familiar, 1 Vryn Wingmare, 2 Field of Ruin, and 1 Shefet Dunes (14 cards)

That leaves 4 cards unaccounted for. I don't know what I would do with those final 4 spots.

I mean for Eldrazi Displacer, the dual-painlands, HOU pain lands, and a couple 5 color painlands lands are all untapped colored mana producers that can also produce colorless, if you want.

The ones for this deck are as follows: Adarkar Wastes, Underground River, Caves of Koilos, Shefet Dunes, Ipnu Rivulet, Ifnir Deadlands, Grand Coliseum (not untapped sadly), and Tarnished Citadel

I would consider adding Shefet Dunes.
