Squandered Resources Discussion

Looking at your decklist, I don't think I would really consider this deck a control deck. I think you should consider adding Death Cloud and Natural Balance. Since you are built around sacrificing your own lands, the drawbacks of Death Cloud are significantly reduced. Natural Balance is really nice when coupled with Squandered Resources (perhaps my favorite card with the frog), as you can sacrifice all your lands (getting mana and drawing cards), then cast Balance for more lands while making your opponents sacrifice lands if they have too many (which is good against other greedy green players).

Flooremoji on Moden Prosperity Bloom?

Now I know, both Cadaverous Bloom and Squandered Resources are not modern legal, but we have both Fascination and Mind Spring to act as Prosperity. Is there any way to convert cards into mana like the days of old? Please don't suggest Inner Fire unless you have a decklist that can reasonably prove to me that it can be used in this kind of shell. Thanks!

As to what KayneMarco and McToters were saying, Overlaid Terrain is more of a budget version of Squandered Resources, and with all the land reanimation effects you are running you can get an excessive amount of mana i.e. Splendid Reclamation, World Shaper, etc. Even more so if you combine it with Amulet of Vigor those lands will come in untapped and tap for two each.

Some other cards to contemplate about:

Hope that helps!

Here is a list of cards in no particular order that will definitely increase the deck synergy.

Sylvan Library, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Amulet of Vigor, Strip Mine, Wasteland, Entomb, World Shaper, Squandered Resources, Dark Confidant, Zuran Orb, Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Dark Petition, Natural Order, Prismatic Omen, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Dark Depths, Thespian's Stage, Glacial Chasm

Some of the cards are definitely over $20 but off the bat I would invest in Amulet of Vigor or Sylvan Library first.

I'll admit that Hedron Crab hasn't exactly put in the same amount of work that any of the other Landfall triggers have and at the end of the day, it's just a pet card. Getting it out as a turn 1 play has been the best experience for it so far and, if it doesn't draw removal, then I'm able to reliably ramp from there. It's only milled someone out once, and it took multiple plays of Oboro, Palace in the Clouds to get those final few cards milled.

The likes of Squandered Resources and Zuran Orb would both be unarguably better for the deck, but this is built from stuff that I mostly already owned and Squandered Resources has shot up in price recently while I just haven't gotten around to getting a Zuran Orb.

As for Sylvan Awakening, I'm kinda just on the fence about including a second affect like that. I'll have to test it out sometime.

Thanks for checking the deck out and the suggestions Huntluther!

How has Hedron Crab ended up working here? Even with Scapeshift does it end up being able to mill someone out or is it for self mill?

Also have you considered Zuran Orb or Squandered Resources? Both are excellent with Titania, Protector of Argoth

Sylvan Awakening might also work here for a pseudo second copy of Rude Awakening (admittedly not as good as the entwined Rude Awakening but still pretty good)

I absolutely love lands decks and yours looks pretty sweet

Some cards I would consider adding in: Amulet of Vigor, Lotus Cobra, Eternal Witness, Squandered Resources, Praetor's Counsel, Exploration, Constant Mists. Crop Rotation, Scapeshift, Prismatic Omen, Shadow of the Grave, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Oracle of Mul Daya.

There are some silly combinations and synergy you can do once you have enough lands. Here is some food for thought.

Seismic Assault and Squandered Resources on field, let's say you have 10 lands all tapped on the battlefield, and 6 more in grave. Sac all lands float 10 mana, cast Splendid Reclamation. 16 lands ETB, sac them again now you have 20 mana. Cast Praetor's Counsel and pitch 16 lands to Seismic Assault, cast Shadow of the Grave and return all discarded cards to hand, do it again. Cast Regrowth on Shadow of the Grave. Do it again. Cast Eternal Witness, target Shadow of the Grave, Do it again. That's already 64 damage. Now imagine if you had more lands in the grave.

Hope that helps!

My Lord Windgrace deck has a combo that involves The Gitrog Monster, Squandered Resources and Splendid Reclamation to draw my entire deck and loop the land sacrificing an infinite number of times by recurring Splendid Reclamation with Seasons Past. In terms of number of pieces combos can't get much bigger than drawing your entire library in order to just replay a single card.
