Tranquil Thicket Discussion

buildingadeck on Trying to Finish my Tasigur ...

3 weeks ago

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).

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

Polluted Mire and Slippery Karst could come out for Barren Moor and Tranquil Thicket

Ghoulcaller's Bell for Mesmeric Orb uber mill!

Gravecrawler for Reassembling Skeleton or Bloodghast you could even have a combo with Perilous Forays

Viridian Emissary- not strong enough? maybe Satyr Wayfinder

Zulaport Cutthroat- Blood Artist if you're playing in a multiplayer format there will be more creatures dying then just your own, therefore i think blood artist is better

upgrade Murder to Hero's Downfall

upgrade Rise from the Grave to Zombify, or remove entirely

Corpse Connoisseur is great!

Champion of Stray Souls have you thought this card is too slow

Scourge of Nel Toth is this card too slow

Verdant Force good enough?

if you're trying to combo, maybe Tooth and Nail.

also if you're running Living Death maybe run more graveyard hate, Agent of Erebos and Scavenging Ooze

@Felixlives: Makes sense! I'm definitely going to put 4x Gitaxian Probe in then, especially with the recent banning for Modern which means they will go down in price for us Pauper players.

@Burl: Now I'm seeing it... Haha I really like your suggestions, so it will be -8 Forest, +4 Lotus Petal, +2 Tranquil Thicket, -2 Predator's Strike, and +4 Gitaxian Probe. In my playtesting I have noticed that although Llanowar Augur is great bang for buck, it is too predictable, and Rot Wolf is an excellent value play but is too slow unfortunately. Gut Shot is underwhelming in Infect, but I do agree with Sandstorm, so I'll put two in. For Tormod's Crypt, you make a good point so I'll put in Relic of Progenitus as well. Thank you so much for all the great suggestions!

@lonker: Thank you for clarifying, yes I totally agree with this and will update accordingly. Thank you for the great suggestions!

Few suggestions: Swap Gavony Township for Seraph Sanctuary, In my experience you don't usually have leftover mana to use townships ability.

Lonely Sandbar and Tranquil Thicket for something like Thornwood Falls, Sejiri Refuge or Temple of Plenty. If a land is going to come into the battlefield tapped at least have it do something like you gain one life or scry a card. Or get a double land like Simic Growth Chamber and pair it with a basic land or Radiant Fountain.

Pearl Medallion is always a help since most angels are white, also helps your instants and everything else.

Here's an updated version of my deck you commented on before :)

  • Won vs. Affinity x3
  • Won vs. Mirror
  • Lost vs. Turbo Fog
  • Lost vs. Mirror

  • First three games were against Affinity. Infect is just too fast.
  • Both mirrors vs. Same guy. Crushed him first game.
  • Over an hour just to play the first game. I conceded the match. I literally pressed "OK" repeatedly for an hour. I was over it.
  • Misplayed both matches. Was the last game I could play so I rushed it and Fuct up. Both times I had it in my hand I was just careless. Never half ass any two things. Always whole ass one thing.

On MTGO I do not yet have Lotus Petal, Gitaxian Probe, or Land Grant. Without those cards the deck is $10. I currently filled out Groundswell and Mutagenic Growth, and am running 14 Forest plus the Tranquil Thicket and Khalni Garden.

eddyeddy12: Thank you for the kind words! It runs consistently for having limited lands. Land Grant and Lotus Petal, count as mana sources in this deck, totaling 16 sources of mana. With Tranquil Thicket, Gitaxian Probe and under the correct conditions, at times even Rot Wolf; there is enough card draw to ensure a mana source. The CMC of this deck is only 1.31, and contains many "free" cost cards.

Because of these factors, this deck consistently runs on only 8 lands.
