Tropical Island Discussion

"Found myself a Taiga and Tropical Island . I doubt that it'll make a huge difference, but I gotta give the swarm what asks for."

I assure you that the inclusion of what i'm assuming are Revised dual lands make a massive difference - just in subtle ways:

  1. For example you crack a Wooded Foothills to search for a "Forest" but you only have a handful of Blue cards/creatures - you can acquire that Tropical Island and not have to pay an additional 2 life to have it come into play untapped. Sure, 2 life isn't that consequential...but it makes a difference when you have to do that every time you want to try and color fix your mana. Those little shocks for land really add up over time.

  2. Having an additional array of typed lands that can be fetched helps in color fixing - this will help you get the right mana at the right time which is the biggest hurdle all 5c decks have.

Acquiring Dual lands is no small thing - you are part of an elite few number of deck builders that have gained access to the mecca of lands.

DeadpoolMTG thank you my friend ! I'm planing to make a short video soon about my deck to show the wonderful alteration skills of my friend Kevin Altered on my Tropical Island and Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca and all those gorgeous cards (expedition lands, Mutavault , Deeproot Champion ...) that took me almost 2 years to assemble :D

You have the core of a cedh deck but you need a much faster land base. Come into play tap lands have no place in a competitive game. Upgrading to duals like Underground Sea , Bayou , and Tropical Island along with fetches like Polluted Delta , Misty Rainforest and Verdant Catacombs will increase the speed and consistency of the deck but also ups the price tag ridiculously high; I suggest playing with proxies in non-sanactioned tournaments to get a real feel for CEDH. If you're interested in the format don't limit yourself to a budget and find a play group with the same mentality so you can actually test at full power not 50%.

If I were you, I would add more types of lands. Try some of the following: Breeding Pool Hinterland Harbor Botanical Sanctum Tropical Island Yavimaya Coast Flooded Grove Misty Rainforest These are all pretty helpful in any commander deck and can help you win a lot faster than regular tap lands and basic lands.

ShaperSavant i don't have the OG Duals but do have all fetches/shocks... I've slotted in the shocks for the duals that aren't being ran but what would you suggest for Bayou / Tropical Island ... The fast lands Blooming Marsh / Botanical Sanctum , the canopy lands Nurturing Peatland / Waterlogged Grove or just a basic Snow-Covered Forest / Swamp ?

When you tap Tropical Island for blue, with Nissa you will instead add to your mana pool, due to her ability. This effect is similar to Overgrowth , Wild Growth etc. This is because the ability states "when you tap this land for mana, add X". It does not care what color you tapped the land for. (for example it would have had to be worded as "when you tap a land for , add additional ")

Cheers! :)
