Tainted Wood Discussion

multimedia on Nethroi, Apex of Value

Hey, good budget version and nice detailed deck description.

Paradise Druid is ramp and a creature to mutate to because of hexproof. Elves of Deep Shadow, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Elvish Mystic are one drop budget mana dorks for ramp. Buried Alive is a powerful budget enabler for Nethroi, tutoring for and putting three creatures into your graveyard.

The creatures who have 0 power and give themselves power/toughness with counters when they ETB are good to reanimate with Nethroi. They don't count towards the 10 power of creatures, but you can still reanimate them. Most can also get themselves into your graveyard by removing all the counters on them.

  • Ghave, Guru of Spores: combos with Devoted/Vizier as a mana sink to make infinite tokens and a sink to sac all those tokens.
  • Faeburrow Elder: ramp, can make up to three mana depending on if you have a black permanent in your control.
  • Mindless Automaton: an enabler for reanimation as well as being draw. Good with dredge to get the card back into your graveyard.
  • Custodi Soulbinders: counts all other creatures on the battlefield including your opponents.

Command Tower, Exotic Orchard, Llanowar Wastes, Caves of Koilos, Tainted Wood, Tainted Field, Ash Barrens are playable budget lands to consider adding.

Good luck with your deck.

Glen Elendra Archmage? Recurring counterspell! Also looks like there are a few two ofs, and I think the lands could use a little tweaking! Have you seen the Tainted Wood cycle? Nice dual lands if you're playing a bunch of swamps. Also looks like the deck is a little light on interaction, maybe some more instant creature/artifact removal and boardwipes? You could do an Eternal Witness and other cards like that to recur important spells

Cut the duplicates

If you can afford it, exchange Ghost Quarter vs Wasteland and Cabal Pit vs Ancient Tomb (or for Bojuka Bog)

Other good (utility) lands which are always good:

"Slow Lands" which sadly enter the battlefield tapped but, (in my opinion) are worth that downside:

I can also highly recommend visiting as a source of inspiration.

It would really appreciate it if you would visit some of my decks and leave comment there

Hey, Devoted Druid + Quillspike is a budget combo that makes an infinite large power Quillspike. Add Hapatra or Nest of Scarabs to this combo for infinite Snakes/Insects. Add Obelisk Spider to this combo for a real win condition to make opponents lose all life.

Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Golgari Rot Farm, Opal Palace, Jund Panorama, Ash Barrens are budget lands to consider adding.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, there's some good cards here, but my advice is before you make any other changes that you focus on the manabase. If you want better results then improving the manabase can help. The ratio of 28 lands that are green sources of mana to 10 sources of black mana is subpar. Even though there's more green cards here than black you still need more black.

It appears you're playing so many Forests because you're counting on having a green land ramp spell to search for a Swamp. This is a trap, it's too risky, because if you don't draw a land ramp spell then how are you going to get black mana? A safer plan is not count on having land ramp spells instead build the manabase with the idea that you will not have access to them. Think of them as a bonus for ramp, instead count on the consistency of different colored lands to cast cards.

Lands within the budget to consider adding:

If you cut 10x Forest for these lands then you have many more black sources while still keeping the green sources the same. There's an artifact theme here which makes mana rocks Golgari Signet and Talisman of Resilience good budget options for ramp.

Good luck with your deck.

Cute Tainted Wood for Blighted Woodland. Myriad Landscape is good too.

Nice budget lands in the colors include Tainted Field and Tainted Wood which have a nice upside of coming in untapped.

Unbreakable Formation is nice protection that can sometimes synergize with your counters. Maybe Shalai, Voice of Plenty helps, too?
