Verge Rangers

Creature — Human Scout

First strike

You may look at the top card of your library at any time.

As long as an opponent controls more lands than you, you may play lands from the top of your library. (You can play a land this way only if you have an available land play remaining.)

You can not play lands on your opponents' turns through Verge Rangers.

To "play a land" meaning to put a land into play during your turn while the stack is empty. Verge Rangers doesn't change this. Importantly, "put a land into play" doesn't mean the same thing as "play a land". As an example, take Growth Spiral. It lets you "put a land into play". The key difference is that this doesn't count as your land for the turn while the lands that you play with Verge Rangers do.

Hope this helps!!

Does Verge Rangers allow you to play lands during opponents turns?

Since your deck can use more creatures, there are a lot of cool creatures that I've liked lately.

Captain Lannery Storm is a great source of early ramp. Cartographer's Hawk is a new one you can try out. Verge Rangers is also a new one to test. Either of the generic recuiters (Recruiter of the Guard and Imperial Recruiter) are great early. I've also seen people have success with playing a small goblin package. Since Dockside Extortionist is a great card, you play a Goblin Matron that can tutor it. You can also play great goblins like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Goblin Rabblemaster or Legion Warboss. You can go all in and use Goblin Recruiter

If/when you're able to pick up a copy, I highly recommend Ancient Tomb. It's a super strong way to ramp- just by making a land drop! I've been testing Weathered Wayfarer as a way to tutor for lands I need for each situation. If I need to ramp I grab Ancient Tomb. If I need double strike I grab Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion. If I need haste I grab Hanweir Battlements  Flip. etc.

Lots of ideas to play with :D have fun!

Thank you very much for your detailed answers. I did a couple of test games with your deck and your Teshar-deck has won all my respect. Congratulations on this fantastic deck building! I quickly realized how strong Shimmer Myr, Emergence Zone, Shriekhorn, etc. are, which I was initially skeptical about. And indeed: Verge Rangers would be too slow on the deck. Too bad that Fiend Hunter has toughness 3. Creatures exiling permanently would be chic. One question remains: I saw the Claws of Gix card in other deck lists. What do you think of the card? I think, any-permanent-sacoutlet sounds pretty cool.

Thank you, valentin74!

1) Precisely for this reason. I chose to use responses that can also be used proactively. And Path can be used on some creature (an Ornithopter for example) to ramp off. Besides, it is quite common for Path to have no drawback (against 4C or 5C with greedy mana bases).

2) They are very useful in pods that I find difficult, with a lot of counter and interactions. Besides, they are necessary in situations where you combo off but your only payoffs are Urza's Bauble or Mishra's Bauble, where you can draw your deck on the opponent's upkeep and you need to win before giving a bigger window to stop you.

3) To be honest I never tried Verge Rangers because I found it slow. But if you are in a more midrange version, it may be a real option. Of course, before considering using it I would certainly use Mystic Forge.

4) I honestly don't like Heliod on this deck. Apart from triggering Teshar and possibly combo with Ballista, it adds absolutely nothing to our game plan. I prefer to use some redundancy from some of our combo pieces, or some way to dig more into the deck.

5) Not long ago I used only Codex Shredder and decided to test the other 2, and I really enjoyed it. Besides possibly answering opponents' top tutors, in practice, in our deck it is a "draw a card", since our graveyeard is an extension of the hand. In addition, it is possible to loop our non-artifact or non-creature spells with Codex Shredder.

6) Banisher Priest (or Fiend Hunter on some lists) is a necessary evil (like Leonin Relic-Warder). It is often an option to remove stax pieces that can harm our game a lot (Hello, Collector Ouphe and Drannith Magistrate), or even answer something that is essential to not lose before returning to our next turn (like Zur the Enchanter). Since we use many self mill effects, it is feasible to revive Banisher Priest with the Teshar effect, which is not the case with other types of responses. In addition, Banisher Priest can be fetched with Recruiter of the Guard.

Beautiful deck. I have my own Teshar deck. A lot is similar, but I saw some interesting differences with you. I have the following questions about your deck building:

  1. Why do you play Path to Exile instead of Swords to Plowshares? Do you want to keep the option open to ramp yourself or shuffle your library?

  2. What is your experience with the Shimmer Myr and Emergence Zone cards? Do you really often use the flash effect?

  3. I play Verge Rangers in my Teshardeck. I am fascinated by how this card synergizes with "eggs", Sensei's Divining Top, Millcards, Fetchlands, tutors, etc. The key effect of the card is "You may look at the top card of your library any time". What do you think of the card? Have you already tested the card?

  4. Furthermore I play Heliod, Sun-Crowned in my Teshardeck. The card is a historic spell and Heliod, Sun-Crowned goes infinite with Walking Ballista. Otherwise, the card does little. I'm not sure if Heliod, Sun-Crowned is good enough. What do you think?

  5. What is your experience with the Shriekhorn, Codex Shredder and Ghoulcaller's Bell? Sure, the effects are good. But are the effects really worth filling three card slots? I will try out the three cards myself and am curious to see how they will works.

  6. I have seen the Banisher Priest card in several deck lists, but I have never tried it myself. Is the card that good? And if so why?

I would be happy if you would give me answers to my questions.
