Traverse the Outlands Discussion

SirFowler on Guilt-Leaf (Needs Suggestions)

I think you should run more graveyard hate, especially towards graveyard recursion decks like Muldrotha. Cards like Withered Wretch, Relic of Progenitus, or even Tormod's Crypt can help out a lot. Something I might suggest to take out would be Winter Orb. It just seems out of place in this deck. You don't have any way to manipulate it to your will. What if someone taps it on your turn? If that happens, only you would get screwed from your own card if someone then untaps it before your next turn. Old, just a suggestion.

You might even need more discard in your deck. Tasigur's Cruelty is a lot better than Tendrils of Despair because late game you just get rid of what you don't need from your graveyard and you don't need to get rid of a creature. Plus, each of your opponents discard 2 instead of just 1 person discards 2.

Also, I think Traverse the Outlands is a little weak in this type of deck. It's a great card sure, but more in like a Selvala, Heart of the Wilds type of deck where power matters. For the most part, you just have low power elves besides a couple of them, so Traverse the Outlands can be kind of a waste if you cast it early. I would suggest replacing it with Perilous Forays. It's great in this type of deck because you're creating multiple elves, which in turn create much more mana down the line.

Hope this helps!

I would ditch Burgeoning and Exploration for cards like Hour of Promise Explosive Vegetation or the like. Hour is very good, particularly with lands like Krosan Verge

imo Exploration and Burgeoning aren't viable in a deck with so few lands, whereas cards that fetch lands for you would keep you more consistent.

Full suggestions:

Cloud Key is good, but early lands are better since most of your angels have such intensive colored mana requirements.

The other suggestions pull lands from your deck, which depending on your meta is better than things that die to removal. running angels like this i'd assume you're going to be a heavy target. so while Prismatic Omen is a super strong enabler I would remove it if I were playing you.

I like the karoo lands just fine, but to me you need those fetches to find a land you need in the moment, and they're faster than the karoo lands. I am interested to know how they work in your deck tho

Curse of Opulence, Curse of Verbosity, Dreamstone Hedron, and Mirror of the Forebears are where I would start to look for better options. The curses are too conditional on your opponents' choices for them to be reliable. Dreamstone Hedron gives you colorless mana, and you really want to increase your chances of casting each of your spells, so producing colored mana is really important, and especially having flexible colored sources. Mirror of the Forebears can turn into your best dragon, but you have many legendary dragons which will not work with it, and I think you'd rather slot in more ramp or card draw to increase your consistency.

I would consider the following cards:

Manalith, Chromatic Lantern, Mystic Remora, Traverse the Outlands

Also, there are many guides that have been created on YouTube where others give their opinions on how to upgrade the C17 Draconic Domination deck. Some recommend expensive cards, so you might be interested in looking up "budget" upgrades for the preconstructed deck if you have a more restricted wallet.

Bocajtioneb I love your deck, here are some suggestions.

Rishkar's Expertise/Garruk, Primal Hunter. Super useful card draw, especially rishkar.

Traverse the Outlands - RAMP


Pathbreaker Ibex/Rancor - Provides trample

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - MANA (and some card draw)

Siege Behemoth - Fav card in my xenagos deck

Sneak Attack - 1 red for vorinclex, double ur mana, cast shit, sneak in more dudes, swing

I'd like to hear your thoughts on my deck Xenabro if you could spare a moment.

Traverse the Outlands could be good too

Rzepkanut on Clarion Ultimatum?

Traverse the Outlands and Harvest Season can both get lots of lands in play at once for cheap. If you have a ton of mana maybe try Genesis Wave and Animist's Awakening too. Collective Voyage and Tempt with Discovery do it for everyone, but you get the effects at a discount.
