Rabid_Wombat on Lord Windgrace, Lands Vengeance

Really like what you are aiming towards here, certainly one of the best Lord Windgrace lists I've seen so far.

A few suggestions...

Kessig Wolf Run is actually game winning when combined with Squandered Resources.

I was playing against Windgrace Stax just yesterday so can offer a few tips on that:

Smokestack works surprisingly well when combined with The Gitrog Monster card-drawing effect and you can obviously just -3 Lord Windgrace and retrieve what you just sacced. He was using Turntimber Sower to great effect and always had plenty of Plant blockers to protect his Commander.

Winter Orb, Static Orb and Smoke are all easy to work around while screwing over your opponents..especially when combined with land destruction.

You could add Natural Affinity to respond to any creature wipe spells, or even to combo with your own Blasphemous Act. You're also going to need Vandalblast to take out the artifacts of those players who are using artifact mana instead of land ramp.

To get more out of the land destruction, you could add effects to increase the number of lands people play and disrupt their ability to use those lands, like Storm Cauldron, Ghirapur Orrery, Rites of Spring, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.

Overlaid Terrain might be worth it if you are planning to destroy all your lands anyway.

You could cut Multani since it's hard to exploit his land bounce much, so he's just a fat beater most of the time.

Some general lands-matter cards that could help are Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Oracle of Mul Daya, Ulvenwald Hydra, and Squandered Resources.

One piece of tech I've been excited for is Oath of Druids. You do have to reduce your creature count substantially: I only have Gitrog, Titania, Omnath, Borborygmos, Sire Of Insanity, and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. The first two will immediately have targets for their triggers. With so few creatures, your wraths and death clouds become better. I also think you should have an Eldrazi Titan in the deck for the shuffle trigger to save your 'yard and enable Dakmor/Gitrog loops.

Another consideration is Seasons Past, which can be looped with tutors, and can generate mana with Squandered Resources and Splendid Reclamation.

Nembrothor: Rain of Filth isn't a bad suggestion. I'm already running Squandered Resources, so it would provide a little redundancy. I'll consider it. Thanks.

Jaceblue12 Lots of good feedback here, I appreciate it. It should be pretty apparent, but I'm not trying to optimize this deck. I'm having fun with it, I like running cute cards like Army Ants or Invader Parasite. They're not the most optimal necessarily, but they can still be useful, and also they're generally not worth wasting removal on, so they generate me a decent amount of value a lot of the time. I really like playing a card and getting that "what does that do?" reaction. I also just don't like playing with certain staples, I like winning without them. I won't include the Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth+Cabal Coffers combo in any deck I build. The same is true for Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle+Prismatic Omen combo. I understand that these are powerful combos, but I just don't think they're very fun. I don't have a mono blue player in my playgroup, I just think it's funny to hose blue players even if it's only infrequently and partially. Also when I play Choke against a mono blue player it'll be hilarious. There's a couple of your suggestions I'll consider. Squandered Resources is a good card that I somehow hadn't seen. I've been toying with Jokulhaups for a while now, and I think I might add it in over Wildfire. Anyway, thanks for the feedback!

There are some inclusions in the deck that I don't completely understand and seem like bad cards to be playing, especially in a format as crazy as commander. Why are you playing Scapeshift but not the Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle + Prismatic Omen combo? I understand it's a good way to get a bunch of landfall triggers, but you would be much better off with Life from the Loam in this slot. LftL is an auto-include in any lands-themed deck and you should be playing it. Army Ants seems way too cute and a very bad card for the political climate of a commander game. You can only take out one land every turn cycle, and the person you hurt will be salty with you. Since you seem to be going with an MLD theme, I would run Jokulhaups instead. Dragonmaster Outcast is way to slow and fragile. Cut it for Splendid Reclamation. Elvish Rejuvenator is just a bad Wood Elves. Ember Swallower is a bad card. cut it for better MLD. Same goes with Invader Parasite - it's a cute card, but doesn't make nearly enough of an impact for commander. Scute Mob - see dragonmaster outcast. I reccomend cutting it for Deathrite Shaman. Exsanguinate seems bad without Cabal Coffers+Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or Vault Skirge+The Gitrog Monster. I would cut two basics for the aforementioned lands and Invader Parasite for Vault Skirge. Rites of Spring - I understand that this card is in here to work with your commander, but it's a bad card. Cut for Squandered Resources which also works well with Exsanguinate. Tsunami and Choke - is there a mono-blue player in your playgroup? If not these are just bad cards as a lot of the lands people will be playing, even in a two-color deck, are not islands. Path of Discovery seems like a bad card to me - I haven't actually played with it and I understand it works well with angry omnath, landfall dragon and avenger but if you don't have those cards it feels awful. Why is Conjurer's Closet in your deck. Unless you have one of your ~6 ETB creatures it sucks. Cut for Kodama's Reach. I would play Constant Mists over Eternity Vessel. Hope this helps!

Hello, I saw your post on reddit (am only lurking there) and checked out your deck.

It looks pretty nice :)

I would suggest cutting Winds of Qal Sisma and Merciless Resolve as they seem your least impactfull cards (I don't think you need to prevent combat damage and you seem to have plenty of card advantage already, even then there's better ones than the Resolve).

A card I would suggest is Baru, Fist of Krosa as it works great when you return your cards from your graveyard. And maybe Reprocess could replace Merciless Resolve?

Squandered Resources is also great with the frog.

Feel free to check out my take on the froggo (it's also pretty casual): my take on Gitrog
