Volrath's Stronghold Discussion

Delta-117 on The Queen's Egg

Since you brought up Volrath's Stronghold, that reminded me of the card Wheel of Sun and Moon which I suggest you consider using here if you can find room. If your slivers die they rather go to the bottom of your graveyard where they can be easily tutored for again by your commander.

I just happened to think of this card because you mentioned Volrath's Stronghold and all which is of course a way to recur things from the graveyard and this I think would be a good addition here either in place of that land or in addition to it.

Okay, another question - should I swap out Mutavault for Volrath's Stronghold?

The Entomb seems a bit much considering all of the other tutors and mill effects in the deck.

Since you have the Volrath's Stronghold for creatures, why not Academy Ruins to help get back the Crucible of Worlds instead of the Reliquary Tower?

The mana rocks of Dimir Signet, Golgari Signet, Simic Signet seem kinda week. You seem to have a solid mana base and I understand the need to have color fixing. Why not a Darksteel Ingot?

The delve ability on Logic Knot seems to work against your graveyard filling. I see why it is in there but I could also see times in the early game where it isn't as good as it could be in late game.

What about replacing the Three Visits, Farseek, and Nature's Lore with Wood Elves to fetch up the dual lands? Repeatable, blocker, and has more synergy with Survival of the Fittest and Animate Dead.

Just some ideas off the top of my head. Let me know what you think.

I adjusted the tutors in the deck to better synergize with it, namely attaching bodies to the tutors or lowering their costs. I am hoping to get more value out of them with Lifeline, Volrath's Stronghold and Doomed Necromancer.

Army of the Damned is a cool finisher that you can still cast from your graveyard if it gets milled, a lot better than Empty the Pits most of the time. But I'm not sure about Ulamog, it doesn't work with graveyard cards (Splinterfright, Life from the Loam etc. and also Laboratory Maniac) I would play more controllable effects to avoid accidental graveyard shuffle.

I think Brawn, Wonder, Filth or Genesis would be great here. Svogthos, the Restless Tomb and Volrath's Stronghold would also be useful in this kind of deck...

Buen deck estimado, podras tratar de aadirle un Avenger of Zendikar, te da tokens y tienes un Craterhoof Behemoth en main, lo otro es agregarle algunas otras tierras que te ayuden al fix, como fetchlands, shocklands, ese estilo, por ltimo estimado un Volrath's Stronghold, uff, cudate.

Looks fairly solid mainboard wise. I personally like having Volrath's Stronghold, as it lets you out creature a lot of decks. Not a fan of Kaya, Ghost Assassin either, I don't think she is that amazing, and would personally rather run Sorin, Solemn Visitor as a way of beating and racing TNN decks.

Sideboard wise, I really don't a lot of the choice you've made though. Like Storm is going down, BUG is on the rise. No sort of graveyard hate, lots of targeted removal for specific pieces that doesn't hurt the deck, no artifact hate or anything to hate on the other decks. Krosan Grip goes a long way.

I think your best inclusions would be Bottomless Pit and Necrogen Mists. This is because it hits everyone and is really inexpensive CMC wise.

I would also add Volrath's Stronghold to reuse creatures that you end up discarding.

Hope this helps!
