Temple of Abandon Discussion

I would honestly drop Stubborn Denial and Bear's Companion for a set of Fanatic of Xenagos, since Companion is a five-drop for not too much and Denial is a 2-off in a very aggro-looking deck. Fanatic can be a turn 2 cast off of Elvish Mystic as well. I would also drop the two Rugged Highlands for two Mystics and one Frontier Bivouac for one Temple of Abandon.

Here is a Temur deck I made on a budget for your reference.

I would like to make a counter offer...my Windswept Heath for your 1 Temple of Abandon and 2 foiled Crater's Claws

wormhole65 on Temur Aggro/Midrange

In my experience Stubborn Denial is all you should need for protecting critical creatures from removal, so I think you're on the right track with that.

As for Temur Ascendancy, I've had the same problem with my Temur deck. Against other tempo or ramp decks, Ascendancy is simply too slow. No amount of card draw makes up for missing your turn 3 Savage Knuckleblade or Polukranos, World Eater drop (assuming you got some kind of ramp), and you don't need the haste as Knuckleblade, Stormbreath Dragon and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker all have haste built in.

If you want haste on other creatures like Surrak or Polukranos, Xenagos, God of Revels is your go-to guy. Gives haste and doubles their power in addition to potentially being an indestructible blocker.

One other thing I wanted to mention is that your mana base could use a tweak or two. The first thing I would do is reduce it to 22 lands since you have so much ramp. I would probably take out Mana Confluence and Evolving Wilds and call it a day. Then you could put in 2 extra Crater's Claws for more removal and mainboard Xenagos, God of Revels. One other possibility I would consider is Temple of Abandon over Shivan Reef. While your color wheel doesn't look like it, you're actually pretty green/red heavy and the scry power can be quite nice.

gnizz00 Ive definitely been playing around with the land situation for this deck. From what ive playtested I think just one more Wooded Foothills and Temple of Abandon will help fill in the mana gaps during play. Most of my early game mana comes from my ramp combo of Rattleclaw Mystic + Sylvan Caryatid (obviously lol). I love Mana Confluence, Its saved my ass many a time when playing my Mardu Aggro deck, but just not sure how needed it is when not running three colors. Ill have to playtest it to find out, Thanks so much for the food for thought!!

Fetchlands like Wooded Foothills and Temple of Abandon, Temple of Epiphany and Temple of Mystery! Good deck otherwise and i think it would work great!

A playset of Wooded Foothills would be great and a playset of Temple of Abandon would also be good!The combo with Ordeal of Nylea and Ordeal of Purphoros was a really good idea, and that would help you with lands and burning your opponent.For lands, i also suggest a playset of Mana Confluence! Good deck though and hope it works out!

Hmmm. Seeing as you're running Utopia Sprawl you could perhaps drop four forests four a playset of Temple of Abandon so you'll have stable access to red without hurting your mana base & throw in card control in the process, then feed that mana you get with utopia sprawl into Earthquake , Savage Twister, Starstorm, Molten Disaster, or something like that. With the high toughness of spiders especially with the obelisk on the field, you should be able to wipe their side of the field and leave yours basically fine. And if you want to make the deck even more red you could run Gruul Turf or something for Dragonlair Spider, Giant Trap Door Spider, etc.

Maybe Hidden Spider for flavor :P
