Tranquil Thicket Discussion

Delta-117 on Hapatra Poisoned The Well

Yeah It That Betrays I realize may not be the best option here, even though I like it, it's costly.

Oh but I know what you can add, some of the cycle lands like Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, Tranquil Thicket, Slippery Karst, Blasted Landscape and Ash Barrens. I just thought since you had Archfiend of Ifnir you might want perhaps 2 of these or something.

Additionally here are a few other considerations:

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Westvale Abbey  Flip, Creakwood Liege, and Dictate of Erebos.

You could add anything with infect, but if you don't want to, at least Inkmoth Nexus would be great. Maybe Glistening Oil and Necropede could fit.

You should develop your mana base with dual lands including Hissing Quagmire and cycling lands, Barren Moor, Tranquil Thicket, Ash Barrens to add Archfiend of Ifnir.

I'm not sure if cycling 2 is too much, I would assume not with how grindy things can get, but it certainly isn't the same as like a Tranquil Thicket. Since they're dual lands though and have basically double the effectiveness as a tranquil thicket, I would assume that double the cost of any color is a fine trade off.

Probably was meant to be Tranquil Thicket.

Ash Barrens is another land with strong synergy with The Gitrog Monster. Use its basic landcycling ability to thin your deck, and draw a card.

Sylvan Safekeeper is a powerful 1-drop that gives your powerful creatures protection, with the cost of additional synergy. Everything about it is perfect in this list.

Tranquil Thicket is another cycle land missing from your mana base.

Crop Rotation can tutor for ANY land in your library, so feel free to surprise opponents with a turn one Strip Mine or Urborg.

Exploration and Crucible of Worlds are a couple pretty pricy cards, but they add so much to your deck. The former helps you keep ramping even after Gitrog hits the field, and the latter is simply broken.

Hey, guys,

I'm looking to pick up these things:

1x Alchemist's Refuge

1x Arcane Denial

1x Barren Moor

1x Consecrated Sphinx

1x Delay

1x Demonic Tutor

1x Entomb

1x Exploration

1x Gilded Drake

1x Long-Term Plans

1x Mystical Tutor

1x Pact of Negation

1x Pernicious Deed

1x Seedborn Muse

1x Snapcaster Mage

1x Tainted Wood

1x Toxic Deluge

1x Tranquil Thicket

1x Yawgmoth's Will

I want to go to the Open on March 11 and play side events, so I'd really like to get this list together for it. You can check out my binder here, and also know that I'm willing to put cash toward some of these cards (would have to be cash; can't do PayPal).

Thanks!

The only problem I see with this list, since I went through the same transition myself, is the lack of card draw. If you have other players in your playgroup giving you card draw consistently then this deck should perform admirably. Otherwise, you may experience a resource drought, and this deck may perform too slowly.

Since you want budget options, I will give you two reasonable options:

  1. Cycle lands. Abuse these, they are so great for decks without blue. For green, there is Tranquil Thicket and Slippery Karst. There are complete cycles of each of these lands, so also make sure to have the black and white ones as well.

  2. Phyrexian Arena. I know this is only one example, but I can think of no better example of pure card advantage in Commander (as before, without being blue). The card currently is only ~$3.50, so depending on how low your budget is, would fit in nicely. There are other effects like this as well, so maybe find some slots for those effects.

I started off very similarly with my own Ghave deck, lots of effective spells and no consistent way to get to them, it made my plays real clunky. So I hope to pass off what I learned from my experience to you.

Ghave is such a fun commander to play, I hope you have as much fun with him as I do! +1

You can also check out my deck for any other ideas, once you get an increased budget: Tastes like AGhave
