crowned on Wort: the Ramp Mother of Burn

1 month ago

Build the deck myself, gotta say it's quite fun to play - still have to manage politics a bit though, since this deck is causing aggro.A few suggestions I have: Add Myriad Landscape and Blighted Woodland - these are ramp cards, that are not wasted before wort is in play, they are permanents that you can recurr and they can also be used as additional landfall triggers, when a finisher of yours is in play.Earthquake, while not being an instant boardwipe as Starstorm, which you put in recently, has the ability to still kill all non flyers, but also as an additional finisher. You need to have more life than anybody else on the table, but heck, it would be another value card IMO.

Firecat Blitz, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Decimate I approve of, however I wouldn't cut Increasing Vengeance yet, since you increased the count of spells that are worth copying with the last update. I have also noticed that it's worse than Reverberate, however it can be used for looting and played as a finisher from your GY at instant speed - great utility!

Hey all, looking to finishing up/improve some of my Commander Decks. I have alot of points accumulated to get some of the more valuable things, just need people willing to send. I am offering a 25% bonus on all of my wants. My username is the same on here if you want to look me up (tried linking, just takes you to puca page, not my profile). I will list my wants on here so you don't waste your clicks if you don't have anything to offer. Thanks in advance, I'd be super appreciative to receive anything from my list. I have enough points to cover the entire list + bonus (Half on send confirmation, half on reciept of cards)

All one of's, not worried about sets, condition NM/SP, if less send pictures.

Okay, so the first thing I noticed is that there is a lot of double/a few triple black in the mana costs. It's not a bad thing, just make sure your land base has a lot of ways to get black mana. I would recommend Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, but you probably already know about that one. As for red cards:

-Starstorm, it's a bit of an older card, but you are playing zombies; your creatures shouldn't be too hard to get back. (CON- Double red, not the best for splahsing)

-Urabrask the Hidden, he's more expensive, but it's worth it. Blue/black aren't really two colors that have a lot of haste, so giving your creatures haste while slowing everyone else down is nice. (CON- Double red, and he is a target).

-Taurean Mauler, Changeling, counts as a zombie, can be recurred with zombies, and discourages opponents from casting spells. The Mauler has a nice single red in his mana cost. (CON- he's a pretty big target for removal)

Those are the only specific red cards I have for you, but I would consider adding more blue too. While there is more blue, black still overwhelms the rest of the colors. Be careful with double and triple colors in the mana costs unless you know you have a solid mana base.

Hope those helped!!

Destroy effects are not damage.

Protection from X is defined by DEBT:

  • can't be Dealt damage

  • can't be Enchanted

  • can't be Blocked

  • can't be Targeted

Starstorm deals damage, so a creature with pro-red would not be dealt anything.

On the other hand, pro-red would do nothing to save a creature from an Obliterate.

Does protection from red protect a creature such as Akroma, Angel of Wrath from the damage a card such as Starstorm deals? Does rule 702.16e apply? or is Starstorm considered to be more like a board wipe?...Does it need to be a card that says Destroy each creature to be a board wipe? (To be clear I am assuming that a red board wipe that would say destroy each creature would destroy a pro-red creature, yes?)

702.16e Any damage that would be dealt by sources that have the stated quality to a permanent or player with protection is prevented.

Does Ghirapur Orrery make the cut for this deck?I found in play testing I was without a hand and top decking often (if i didn't hit Ad Nauseam)

Hitting the Miracle cards with Ad Nauseam really sucks, maybe use cheaper removal like Earthquake/Magmaquake/Molten Disaster/Bonfire of the Damned/Sudden Demise/Starstorm to allow AD to draw more cards?
