Temple of Abandon Discussion

Ulturas on Bruna, Light of Losing Friends

3 days ago

TheFutur3 I also can't really decide on what to do next, on one hand there is upgrading my standard deck to run 4x Atarka's Command, and 2x Destructive Revelry sideboard I'd also need stuff like 4x Wooded Foothills 1-2x Mana Confluence and Temple of Abandon, just for pure force added to Red Deck Wins. On the other hand there is starting to build my Merfolk deck which will potentially be a long work in progress my brother has a Red Deck Wins for Modern that he said I could borrow for the time being if I actually do end up playing Modern. Then lastly I can buy a foil Enchanted Evening off my friend for $30 and potentially also get Serra's Sanctum off him as well for this deck. Too many decisions :/.

J0eJ0eJ0e on Smokey the Bear - Can you prevent FOREST FIRES?

I would add at least one more Temur Ascendancy. You have 13 creatures that satisfy the requirement, assuming you have at least 1 +1/+1 counter when you cast Avatar of the Resolute. This is also not including Mistcutter Hydra.

Temple of Abandon is strictly better than Rugged Highlands if you have the money.

Stormbreath Dragon and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker are both good and do effectively the same thing, though one with monstrosity and the other with Bathe in Dragonfire attached. Consider one of these, though it is expensive both monetarily and in terms of mana with a curve that caps at 4.

Don't play Shaman of Forgotten Ways because it is almost the top of your curve anyway. You don't need the mana. Same goes for most other mana accel creatures other than Elvish Mystic and Rattleclaw Mystic. The other ones are too expensive or too defensive for the deck.

At least a couple copies of Disdainful Stroke should be in main. It hits the core of dragon decks, stops board wipes from control, etc.

SpringingTiger on Full-Scale Assault - a Temur Dragon Tale

Here's the mana base I would run with this deck:

4 Frontier Bivouac; 4 Wooded Foothills; 2 Forest; 2 Mountain; 1 Island; 1 Temple of Abandon; 2 Temple of Mystery; 2 Temple of Epiphany; 2 Yavimaya Coast; 1 Shivan Reef; 4 Haven of the Spirit Dragon

Two resources I have found very useful when figuring out Standard mana bases are Frank Karsten's articles How Many Colored Mana Sources Do You Need to Consistently Cast Your Spells? and Building Three-Color Manabases in Standard. Due to mana considerations I would replace the Dragon Whisperers with Draconic Roars.

I do not like Increasing Savagery. It's more of a "Win More" style card. I'd replace it with 3 more lands. Temple of Abandon, Raging Ravine, those would be good ones.

Also! Temple of Abandon > Rugged Highlands, or perhaps some of the other on-color scry lands. Thankfully, Temple of Abandon and Temple of Mystery are some of the less-costly scry lands out there.

I like the concept, but i'm not so sure about de mana base, since you have many GG and RR cost cards you could use some Rugged Highlands, Temple of Abandon, Mana Confluence or Wooded Foothills.

Hey I just took another look and I noticed the lands seem strange. As much as I hate to admit it playing a scry land turn 1 or 2 is sometimes needed with Courser of Kruphix and Hero's Downfall in the main.

Your choices are:
Temple of Malady
Temple of Abandon
Temple of Malice

Looking at the mana base right now the only you need is usually Hero's Downfall. To hit this you would want Temple of Malady and/or Temple of Malice. It just depends, do you want to run more Malady and risk not having turn 4 or run Malice and risk not having any in opening hand? I mean Temple of Abandon solves both of those problems but then you might not ever downfall so...

Either way with only 21 lands 4x Wooded Foothills and 4x Bloodstained Mire hurts your ability to play diff colored spells with 2x colored mana symbols and decreases your ability to play enough lands even with Courser of Kruphix.

As others have mentioned the key here might be having more burn for removal during early turns. If you did then your fetches wouldn't be as much of a liability in the mirror match.

I can't stand seeing decks without fixing Wooded Foothills and Temple of Abandon are essential for this deck be at all competitive.
