fmastrome2008 what card would you suggest replacing with Sire of Stagnation? Most of my play-group doesn't run fetchlands (and their price is less than savory), that's why I hesitate to add them. Thank you for the suggestions!

  1. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and Sire of Stagnation are great psuedo landfall cards. 6 damage and 6 +1 counters, drawing 8 per opposing fetchland is just straight gas!

  2. Shriekmaw is a great utility spell. It also triggers Risen Reef.

  3. If you're looking for an alternative Birthing Pod, Prime Speaker Vannifar is fantastic

For landfall theme decks, you're missing Lotus Cobra, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, Sire of Stagnation, and potentially Splendid Reclamation.

Yarok makes triggers double, including bounce lands. That's the last thing we want! Get them out of the deck!

  1. Sire of Stagnation is straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland!

  2. Spellseeker seems like it would get a ton of value in this deck. Double triggers with Yarok to go find Splendid Reclamation and Realms Uncharted seems good to me.

  3. Rampaging Baloths is a good extra fattie with landfall.

Deck looks pretty sweet!

  1. Farseek over Arcane Signet gets you another landfall trigger. Both are 2 CMC, so you won't miss anything.

  2. Bojuka Bog nets graveyard interaction without affecting consistency at all.

  3. Pending your budget, fetchlands do a ton for landfall themes. Even sticking with the cheap ones like Terramorphic Expanse adds a ton to get multiple triggers.

  4. Sire of Stagnation is pseudo landfall, but he is straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland!

  1. Sire of Stagnation fits the landfall theme. He's straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.

  2. Consider adding some more creature removal in the form of Ravenous Chupacabra or Shriekmaw.

  3. Thassa, Deep-Dwelling will further help you abuse ETB effects each turn. Bounce Ravenous Chupacabra each turn to keep the battlefield clear, draw 2 extra cards per turn with Baleful Strix, put 2 more lands in play with Wood Elves, or continuously wipe the opposing board with Massacre Wurm.

  4. I'm seeing a lack of tutors with this deck. I imagine some are too expensive like Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor, which are amazing. Others in the form of Rune-Scarred Demon, Fierce Empath, Woodland Bellower really help the deck find pieces and continue to accelerate their board state without sacrificing anything. Btw, Bellower can find Empath.

  5. Bojuka Bog provides graveyard interaction without affecting consistency. Swap it out for a swamp.

Honestly, the only cards I see you missing (minus fetchlands) are Deathrite Shaman, Zagoth Triome, Sire of Stagnation, and Woodland Bellower. That's less than 1/3 the price of the cheapest fetchland.

  1. Bojuka Bog provides great graveyard interaction without affecting consistency, especially in multiplayer. Switch it with a swamp and you won't notice a difference.

  2. Since most casual groups outlaw mass land destruction, artifacts are more prone to interaction, and I see a decent chunk of landfall cards in this deck, cards such as Farseek, Cultivate, Nature's Lore, etc.. will get you more lands in play.

  3. Reclamation Sage belongs in this deck.

  4. Sire of Stagnation and Tatyova, Benthic Druid are straight gas. They end up drawing so many cards per game. I end up discarding to hand size sometimes, which is a good problem to have!

  5. I see Neoform and Eldritch Evolution. I prefer to use Birthing Pod and Prime Speaker Vannifar since they're more permanent effects.
