Sheltered Thicket Discussion
13 hours ago
hoardofnotions, this is great feedback! Thanks a lot. You gave me some great ideas here.
I hesitate with cutting World Breaker somehow since I can use it multiple times and not only once. Also it's effect is uncounterable and the boots are simple but good protection.
But as I take a more precise look at Nim Deathmantle, maybe I have a great idea, too: What do you think about cutting Swiftfoot Boots for Nim Deathmantle since it's also kinda able to protect Omnath ('cause I don't really have a mana problem in this deck). That again opens the doors for using Eternal Witness (which I would swap with Nissa, Vital Force) more than once (either with the deathmantle or Cloudstone Curio + elemental tokens) which also allows to use cards like Beast Within multiple times. This would make World Breaker unnecessary and I could swap it with Beast Within or Reclamation Sage (since the sage is tutorable). Good idea or rather too complicated?
Hanweir Battlements' haste effect doesn't sound bad, I will think about it! I will also add Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and Stomping Ground as soon as I acquire them. Same goes for Life from the Loam.
I'm still not sure about Sylvan Scrying though. It's a choice between this and more utility which could make the game slower or Rampant Growth which speeds up the game a bit. And up til now I'm more on the faster side for this one
Last but not least, I'm not a huge fan of the cycle lands. I tried Sheltered Thicket for some time but it just didn't convince me.

The first upgrades should go to the mana base. That's a lot of forest for a Valakut deck, I know that you need the green sources to play the ramp spells and perhaps Fetches and Stomping Grounds are too expensive, but I would trim as many forest as possible for Cinder Glades and Sheltered Thickets to add more mountains to the deck while still being able to cast your ramp spells.
Hour of Promise is also a great ramp spell that can get the Valakuts out of the deck the way Titan can.

Hey! I saw your update and thought I could add my two cents in. I really like the changes except for taking out your removal! I think Beast Within is better than World Breaker 'cause it's cheaper and instant speed.I'm not sure Swiftfoot Boots is nessary either, maybe cut that for Decimate?
Maybe adding Sylvan Scrying could be good?
Adding Stomping Ground, Forgotten Cave, Sheltered Thicket, Tranquil Thicket, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle could add more utility. The cycling lands help enable titania and if you add life from the loam it's basically card draw that can help set up Splendid Reclamation as well.
Is amulet of vigor good outside your combo with perilous forays? I kinda like adding Nim Deathmantle to go infinte with ashnod's/phyrexian altar and avenger/titania.

If you can afford it, here's what I would do for Land:
Here is an ultra budget version:

It looks good. Yea I think an Esper Control deck could do well. Unfortunately I think it is impossible to make a true tier 1 control deck in those colors without running The Scarab God, but I think you can do fine in your local meta without it. Whatever you brew, make sure to post the list on here. Also, I saw mono-black aggro did reasonably well in a tournament. You might want to check it out.
I plan on playing R/G Pummeler until it rotates before coming up with a new budget standard deck. I will be running a list pretty similar to one that went 5-0 online minus Glorybringer in the sideboard and a couple copies of Sheltered Thicket.

Like Ghost Town, Undiscovered Paradise can ensure you have a landfall trigger every turn
Zendikar's Roil is perfect since it makes elementals
Cloudstone Curio allows you to pick up lands and replay lands as well as good ETB creatures.

Do you have any problems with mana or casting Kinjalli's Caller early on because i used to be naya but now its just white splashed in also I would say run a full set of Drover of the Mighty Regisaur Alpha and maybe even Carnage Tyrant and also Rootbound Crag and Sunpetal Grove have good synergy with the amonkhet lands like Sheltered Thicket because its a mountain forest but thats if you have mana trouble.
