Tropical Island Discussion
1 week ago
I have some suggestions since I am building Kumena as well.I know they add a bit of price but more fetches would be better than taplands. Also Cavern of Souls is pricey but extremely good.Some Merfolk I would recommend, Merfolk Branchwalker,Jadelight Ranger, Silvergill Adept,True-Name Nemesis,Cursecatcher,Fallowsage,Wanderwine Prophets (although its a bit slow it can do a lot),Some Tribal Cards too, Urza's Incubator,Coat of Arms,(i like this over Beastmaster Ascension unless ur playgroup is mostly tribal then ig not),Vanquisher's Banner, Door of DestiniesAlso Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter seems like a good combo for the deck if u slot in the mana rocks and dorks. Quest for Renewal seems really good too. Also you could always add more staple cards, namely Sylvan Library, can trips (Ponder,Preordain,Brainstorm), Rhystic Study.(and ofc if you can afford it you should put it the good ol' Gaea's Cradle, and Tropical Island, but if you don't want to buy them thats normal)

Thanks for the quick response!
Can you tell me if there are any combos I am overlooking for Mimeo himself or if he is just there to represent Sultai colors? Any information about notable excludes would be great too. I picked up this deck with the exception of a few things like Bazaar of Baghdad, Underground Sea, and Tropical Island and I am just wondering if there are a few notable excludes that I could play over somethings outside of my price point. For example I own a copy of Diabolic Intent and I don't currently have a copy of Grim Tutor. One last thing I am curious about is how the FlashHulk string works without the inclusion of Phyrexian Delver.
Thank you for your time and the deck list!

Tropical Island also costs over 200 USD more. Also, I did have Tropical Island in the deck when I was goldfishing it on this site, but once I put it together in paper form, I updated this list to use a land I already owned.

No. Unless the supertype basic is used in the text, you are not limited to just basic lands - Savannah and Temple Garden and Canopy Vista or even lands that have just one of the two types like Tropical Island or Plateau - all of these and more can be fetched by Karametra (offer available only if call in the next 15 minutes!) Call 555-Karametra right now!

Greetings Rian, the hive welcomes you. So to reiterate: Why am I using Gemstone Mine over other viable options such as Ancient Ziggurat or Unclaimed Territory? Simple. Because it's pros outweigh the cons. To be more specific:
The land isn't dependent on any outside factors like Exotic Orchard, isn't limited to only creatures like Ancient Ziggurat and isn't dependent on what mana colors I already have access to like the filter lands do. It provides immediate manafixing pure and simple. That can help me cast spells when I need them and make the most of my turn. With the other previously mentioned cards, there will be situations when I won't be able to tap them to play the spell I need. To sum it all up - I chose Gemstone Mine over Unclaimed Territory because I can tap it for the mana I need when I need it. No stipulations, no limitations. The other card suggestions you mentioned have limitations. That means if I'm in a tough situation where I need to cast say...a Counterspell to counter a Blood Moon, and I only have Tropical Island and Unclaimed Territory in play...well then i'm pretty much screwed. This is a real situation within my play group, so Unclaimed Territory is a strictly worse choice.
Path of Ancestry - comes into play tapped. Therefore, it's too slow.
- Exotic Orchard - see first bullet
- The filter lands - they are all in there because while being dependent on what I already have access to, they are more reliable than the previously mentioned cards.

Fetchlands are always a great thing to invest in for a deck like this. And if you are going into the cEDH movement, then you need to get yourself a Tropical Island. Hands down well work it. If you are using Scroll Rack, consider adding Sensei's Divining Top to your deck as well. There is a lot of work that you have to do to make this deck successful. Lowering your mana curve can do a lot for the deck. 2.53 is really high for a U/G deck. You want it somewhere between 1.8~2.1 for your Avg. CMC.
