Some cards you can consider adding are Faith's Reward , Squandered Resources , Retreat to Hagra , Zuran Orb . The ability to sac all your lands and replay them for cheap is invaluable. If your going the land cycling route, you can even consider running Second Sunrise as well. Definitely a fun way to play!

Izzet0712 on The Apothecary

Thank you for the feedback!

I will admit I’m having trouble picking a theme for the deck. I tend towards enchantments primarily because that’s what I play in legacy so it’s a familiar strategy. That said I haven’t settled on that strategy and if I do I’d certainly include the enchantress’s and whatnot. Regardless of this I can’t deny the synergy with constellation, which is the main reason for including as many enchantments as I did.

On Reverent Silence yes it hurts me a lot. Another reason I’m shying away from the enchantress strategy, regardless it wipes out all of my opponents snake tokens I give them as well as helps with the false cure kill. That being said I have pernicious deed and plague boiler to wipe the snakes and I realize false cure’s inconsistency so I can understand cutting this, but I think I would need more convincing as I’d really like to make false cure work.

Spidersilk Armor is a great suggestion and I will definitely add that in

I understand Cabal Stronghold . Urborg still works with basic land types other than swamps as they still have the basic super type. Having 26 basics I think it’s safe to use it but I could certainly be wrong.

I agree that I really need to focus the deck. I had a couple of ideas I’ll elaborate on but most suffer from Pharika being the commander as there are certainly better options for each strategy. Most of the cards are picked for the apothecary theme or to tie it together.

The Mending of Dominaria was chosen simply because it has mending in the name. World Shaper was added to supplement it. Along with Seed the Land and Squandered Resources . Squandered resources I felt kind of tied into the theme as well as helped to do more instant speed exiling. Definitely need more ways to abuse it if that’s what I focus the deck on though and then The Gitrog Monster is almost certainly a better commander.

Enchantments I think has already been elaborated on. She makes the snakes and is about the only form of synergy I could find with her.

Reanimation. This strategy gets kinda cheesy which is why I didn’t include the usual suspects such as chainer and his targets. But I can’t deny it’s strong. So I included a decent amount of to-hand recursion to make up for it. Regardless this theme is a nonbo with the commander. So I’m probably not going to focus on this strategy too hard.

I know Bereavement affects me but my thinking is that I generally won’t care about my stuff being in the yard, especially assuming I go the reanimation route. I think I could have the opportunity to manipulate this to get my opponents into topdeck mode though and win from there. (Not a lot of draw engines are ran, been trying to get them to use wheels as my most common group members use R/W)

McToters on It's Good to Have Land

Army Ants is dope! Never seen that before, and in a "land matters" deck that is sick.

I have a few suggestions but they may not be perfect choices for you (I run them in my Gitrog deck --I know Windgrace is different but they are both "land matters").

Barren Moor and Tranquil Thicket are great for additional cycling. With gitrog out this equals an extra draw per cycle.

Constant Mists is a lifesaver.

Squandered Resources and Lotus Cobra are great 'extra' mana generators. Certainly good for combos. Squandered has dug me out of some deep holes in many games.

Retreat to Hagra is a great combo piece for me--team it up with World Shaper or Splendid Reclamation when you have a nice amount of lands in the graveyard.

Anyway, those suggestions aren't to say your deck isn't already sweet! Just some suggestions to mess around with if you so desire.

Mhm, that's the alternative option for a budget build. The other is going all in with tall the extra land drop producers but that one is definitely not budget friendly as your using cards like Exploration , Oracle of Mul Daya , Azusa, Lost but Seeking and such. Sadly also Squandered Resources jumped up by 200%, it used to be a $1 card :/

Have you thought about adding in tutors to streamline the deck even more. Or adding in cards like Seismic Assault in conjunction with Zuran Orb or as you have Squandered Resources to have synergy with Creeping Renaissance/Shadow of the Grave/Praetor's Counsel.

Some card you might have missed also for ramp (Oracle of Mul Daya) and protection (Constant Mists).

Hope that helps!

It might be a bit on the pricier side as most landfall based decks used extra land drops as a way to increase advantage. Here might be some cards that you can consider upgrading to in the future:

Also adding in fetches will help upgrade this deck quite nicely since it will go in conjunction with all the land fall triggers. Hope that helps!

Thank you for the look over my list! My list that i was going for was tons of random silver bullets that mess with people's strategies that like to combo. I use things like Reanimate to grab random creatures out of people's graveyards as well as my own because of all the Jokulhaups effects that wipe the board as well as pitching any creature to windgrace's +2 or to gamble. Entomb was absolutely something i've been considering. I 've been using tainted aether as well as omnath to bolt people because of things like Seasons Past letting me loop Splendid Reclamation and a tutor to keep grabbing it out of my deck while i Squandered Resources all of my lands over and over. It's really a fun infinite loop that people don't tend to see coming.
