Squandered Resources Discussion

titanreaver on An attempt to make ProsBloom not atrocious

I did some play testing, and I think this is pretty sweet in concept. I thought another draw plan could be The Gitrog Monster paired along side things like Lodestone Bauble and maybe even Second Sunrise. This could let you get rid of blue if you wanted to and you could play Riftstone Portal to make your lands tap for multiple colors for value from the Squandered Resources and you could use tutors to find the monster like Sylvan Tutor or Worldly Tutor or maybe Traverse the Ulvenwald but probably not with out something to make delrium easier to trigger. Thats all I can think of for now, hope it helps.

Also a card I recommend if you like combos is Squandered Resources. This card lets you double the effectiveness of your land for the turn opening up more options for improving your board state.Tormod's Crypt is strictly better than Nihil Spellbomb because it's free.Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Hostage Taker are also just fun to play. Stealing your opponents cards is pretty useful for keeping them in check while giving you an edge.

Well even if you're not gonna let Muldrotha helm things, maybe you could accommodate it a bit more by adding more permanents? E.g. Animate Dead/Necromancy/Dance of the Dead over one or more of the reanimation sorceries and maybe a 3-4 CMC planeswalker? Also maybe more land saccing with e.g. Lake of the Dead/Squandered Resources/Mox Diamond/Constant Mists/Excavation (that last one has some janky synergy with Deathrite Shaman)

Zuran Orb, Sylvan Safekeeper, Squandered Resources, and Glacial Chasm are all really good with gitrog. Mesmeric Orb is something else to consider because all of the triggers count separately. Also Death Cloud and Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest both work really well with gitrog.

Skirge Familiar can be generate a lot of mana when used as a discard outlet for lands. Squandered Resources will also let you generate mana. I usually prefer Harrow over Cultivate. Although you don't get the one land to your hand its instant speed and will usually let you draw a card. Looks good though.

Great list as well as educational. Also like the other take of the list I made and went more ramp.

If you are going to put Squandered Resources, Cadaverous Bloom, and Natural Balance, how about Overabundance?

@xeratheenigma, thanks for posting. I took a peep at your list and it looks really interesting. I definitely wish I could find room for all three artifact lands but I just couldn't find room in my current mana base composition. Actually, looking more closely at the difference between our two mana bases shows the different ways in which our decks play.

I run 8 fetch lands, only one short of the maximum I could, and these are essential to my mana base function. My engines for building a board state are landfall focused for the most part (Omnath, Locus of Rage, Avenger of Zendikar, Zendikar's Roil, Rampaging Baloths), and fetch lands are landfall's best friend. Fetching also plays very well with Titania, Protector of Argoth and The Gitrog Monster as you well know. It seems like your list primarily focuses on filling your graveyard with lands as opposed to filling the battlefield with lands, which makes a lot of sense given how central Gitrog is to your strategy. I also see a lot more cycling lands in your list (I only run 3).

I considered tilting more heavily towards the graveyard when I was brewing this deck but, honestly, I haven't built many dredge-esque decks and I'm just more comfortable with landfall as a mechanic having previously played Omnath, Locus of Rage as a commander. That said, there are a lot of cards in your deck that I feel would play really well in my list, most of them you've already suggested.

I've been thinking about including Worm Harvest and I may give it a shot over Zendikar's Roil or Rampaging Baloths if I find I don't need as many redundant landfall/token effects. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest is another one that's been on my radar as well. Turning every fetch land into an anthem seems absurd.

Greater Gargadon fills the role of sacrificing lands for profit and I like that it can also hit creatures (World Shaper FTW!) but I think I could use another effect like that and Squandered Resources would be PERFECT. My swingy game ending spells all want big mana (Torment of Hailfire/Death Cloud) and being able to tap out and then sacrifice lands for extra mana seems great. Not to mention just being a great effect to have on tap for cards like The Gitrog Monster and Titania, Protector of Argoth, or even just ensuring more landfall triggers for Splendid Reclamation or putting a land into the yard to replay it with Crucible of Worlds.

I'm definitely going to spend more time looking through your list. Thanks again!
