Stomping Ground Discussion

JaceTheSwagSculptor on Uril's Revenge

4 days ago

Not sure if you know, but fetches can get dual lands. For example, Verdant Catacombs can get you a Savannah, Temple Garden, Taiga, or Stomping grounds in addition to its ability to get a basic. Fetches warrant their price for a reason.

Just leave the Cast Out. It's an amazing card and I don't really want to keep messing with the curve. We would have to remove Chaos Warp to keep the curve correct though. Grasp of Fate is probably better than Chaos Warp too (now that I think about it) just because it gets rid of three permanants with no drawback.

I would probably replace Retether with Regrowth. It helps you curve out better.

We really need to get rid of a three drop to curve out...hmmm how about this...

  • Holy Mantle -> Angelic Destiny. Gets you an OHKO with double strike. Plus it recurs itself.

  • Snake Umbra -> Stranglehold/Cartouche of Zeal. I don't think going down to 18 should be that different. Having multiple of the same effect is always good in EDH, but if you're worried about it I think the other aura is fine. Cartouche lets you recover well if Uril gets hit by a board wipe or close out a game for a low CMC.

  • Retether -> Regrowth.

  • I'll let you make the decision between Chaos Warp and Grasp of Fate. I don't think this one makes too much of a difference.

I'm a big fan of the update, the deck has come a long way. However there still are a few things that I think would make the deck better still:

  • Unravel the Aether -> Qasali Pridemage

  • Rounding out the curve so that it has the look of a descending staircase. To do this we need to replace a 3-drop with either a 1-, 2-, or 4-drop. Snake Umbra is definitely the weakest 3-drop.

  • Holy Mantle could still probably be replaced. I still find this card to be really unimpressive at 4 mana.

  • Lastly, Grasp of Fate is still missing. This card is really hard to pass up.

I don't want this to get lost in translation over multiple posts so I'll try to fix the curve and you can either agree or disagree with my adjustments...

You mentioned getting rid of the color fixing enchants like Abundant Growth and Unbridled Growth, but those are there for multiple reasons. They add to enchantment count (for both Ancestral Mask & Ethereal Armor), can filter and/or draw cards, and provide early game fixing. There is not really a need to remove them as they actually do more than you think.

Do you find yourself getting board wiped that much that you need the second Replenish effect in Retether? If not, I'd just replace it with Regrowth. If so, just leave it.

The lands that I suggested were...Grove of the Burnwillows, Horizon Canopy, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, more fetches, and Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers. They will be better than the speed lands and with the replacement of more basic lands, better than the check lands as well. I definitely would not get rid of all your basics though.

My suggestion for your ideal land base would be...

1x Ancient Tomb

1x Misty Rainforest

1x Cavern of Souls

1x Arid Mesa

1x Command Beacon

1x Command Tower

1x Contested Cliffs

1x City of Brass

1x Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers

3x Forest

1x Verdant Catacombs

1x Horizon Canopy

1x Grove of the Burnwillows

2x Mountain

1x Scalding Tarn

4x Plains

1x Marsh Flats

1x Plateau

1x Mana Confluence

1x Flooded Strand

1x Sacred Foundry

1x Savannah

1x Stomping Ground

1x Bloodstained Mire

1x Taiga

1x Temple Garden

1x Windswept Heath

1x Wooded Foothills

I also love that you have this deck tagged as "casual," this deck is a far cry from casual. Lol

So after playtesting it for a while, I think you need to make your ramp more efficient. I have trouble getting cards out onto the battlefield that do anything for you. I think it could be tied to how much colorless land you have. I like the colorless land that you have, but I think it should be mostly kept to one of each. If you had to have multiples of one, I'd probably stick with Cavern of Souls. The other two should just get replaced with basics or other dual colors. Drawing Mirrodin's Core, Ancient Ziggurat, and Haven of the Spirit Dragon is just a dead draw when you're still trying to ramp. You can get any of the shocklands that deal 2 damage to you if you want them to come in untapped (they're about $15-$20 depending on what colors you get). Stomping Ground, Overgrown Tomb, orHallowed Fountain is what I would get. This would really really help, but only two or three of any one will do you enough good for the harm. You can also search for those cards with your fetchlands like Bloodstained Mire or Wooded Foothills since they all have the basic land type in their sub type. I realize that it's expensive to run those kinds of solutions, but it really helps in multi colored decks.

As for everything else, I think most of it is ok at this point and would probably just need refining after you play. I would suggest increasing your Thunderbreak Regent Count to four just in case you have a hard time getting ramp out, which, honestly, shouldn't be an issue if you change your mana a little bit.

Mana fixing is the MOST important part of running multicolored decks and if you can't mana fix properly, your stuff will come out really slowly and that'll hurt you in end, regardless of how disgusting your creatures are.

Other than mana, something like Sylvan Caryatid, Dragonlord's Servant, Animist's Awakening, Rampant Growth, or Harrow might help. But I'm not REALLY suggesting any changes be made to your card pool at this point. We'll have to wait until we play it for real.

Izu_Korasu on It hit me with Lightning (deckmaking game)

off color fetches like Arid Mesa and Windswept Heath can grab Stomping grounds or basics without them coming into play tapped, which is huge for the tempo/speed of the deck.

also the deck now has a small splash of white, which both fits the samut flavor and allows for Spark Trooper join in.

Octrate on No Denyin' Ur Scion

1 week ago

If we're upgrading the land package soon, here's what we gonna do. Firstly, shocklands will be important, but you can start with prioritizing red and black ones. Blood Crypt, Steam Vents, Sacred Foundry, Stomping Ground, Watery Grave, Godless Shrine, Overgrown Tomb... Then you can pick up Hallowed Fountain, Temple Garden, and Breeding Pool later. You'll also want to consider dropping the guildgates/Maze's End. From here, the Khans fetchlands will be worthy of inclusion: Wooded Foothills, Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand, and Windswept Heath. These are the cheaper fetchlands. Sidenote: Cascading Cataracts, Cavern of Souls... They're probably good inclusions. This will be a start for your mana base.

The transformation from Scion to Ur will also lessen the power of the following dragons: Dragon Mage, Dragon Tyrant, Nicol Bolas, Quicksilver Dragon, Scourge of Kher Ridges, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon.

From here, you can try out Keiga, the Tide Star, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Thundermaw Hellkite, maybe Scourge of Valkas, Deathbringer Regent, Destructor Dragon, Dragonlord Silumgar, Glorybringer, Ojutai, Soul of Winter, Thunderbreak Regent... Those are just a start. Lots of potential there. Also, Crucible of Fire, Dragonspeaker Shaman, Dragonstorm lol, Dragonlord's Servant...

Also, if you're going to take out Narnam Renegade that will allow you to drop the 2 Bloodstained Mire in favor of 1 extra Overgrown Tomb and 1 extra Stomping Ground. Having access to 2 red and 2 black mana sources is really important because you want to leave open the possibility of casting multiple Lightning Bolt or Shaman of the Pack in the same turn to close out a game. As it stands now you're limited to casting 1 of each of those per turn, which could be the difference between winning and losing. Cheers!

CaptSillva on Om-wrath and the Elements of Rage

So wait your running a landfall deck, but not running any of the best landfall creatures like Lotus Cobra, Rampaging Baloths, or Avenger of Zendikar?

Also you are running scapeshift in red/green so you may as well run the combo with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. Though you may need to run a few more mountains. Stomping Ground, Sheltered Thicket, and if you have the budget Taiga would help there. That or you could side step the problem with Prismatic Omen.

Another sweet combo card that you may not know about is Stone-Seeder Hierophant, much like Lotus Cobra, she gives you an extra mana with each land drop, but that is not her true power. Her true power is with Thawing Claciers. You see since Thawing doesn't leave play until end of turn, you can just keep paying 1 mana over and over again to ramp you by one. This combo also goes infinite with Lotus Cobra and/or Amulet of Vigor.

Lastly I think you could slot in a Sakura-Tribe Elder or a Solemn Simulacrum somewhere.
