Suns_Champion I knew I recognized your name from somewhere, I love your Neheb deck. Have you thought about running a version of it that runs a lot of Wildfire effects and Cavalier of Flame ? Wildfire seems super good in Neheb because you're still generating a ton of mana while your opponents are struggling on land drops.

You're going to have to run a lot of symmetrical effects (hit all players) and then run cards to get around them yourself. In a 4 player pod, if you 1 for 1 trade cards from hand for opponents lands, you're going to be really far behind. You start with 7 cards, while your opponents collectively have 21 cards. 1 for 1 trades are not the way to go about building this deck.

First, some cards that hate on lands. Winter Orb Static Orb Hokori, Dust Drinker

Now, some ways to negate the drawback

  • Boros Garrison and other bouncelands -> lets you get more from untapping just 1 land, and the bounce resets a land to enter untapped again
  • Lands that tap for 2+ mana -> Ancient Tomb City of Traitors Gaea's Cradle most of these are expensive-ish. Also check out depletion lands Remote Farm its a full cycle and they cheap.
  • Permanent untap effects -> Seedborn Muse and similar
  • Lots of artifact or creature based mana. Signets and Talismans are great in five color budget.

Next, some cards that destroy lands or hate on lands. Armageddon Boil Choke Flashfires Acid Rain Ravages of War Destructive Force Contamination Blood Moon Magus of the Moon Tsabo's Web Omen of Fire Strip Mine Wasteland Impending Disaster Tectonic Break Ruination Wildfire

Then we run some cards that let us recur lands, or like when lands break Ramunap Excavator Crucible of Worlds Life from the Loam Terravore The Gitrog Monster Titania, Protector of Argoth Splendid Reclamation

Add some lands matter cards, some ramp, and some good beaters, and you have a deck.

lagotripha on Discard/Sacrifice lands

There are a lot of cool 'lands matter' cards out there. A lot of the manlands are pretty cheap because there are better options, but work well in a casual Sylvan Advocate Sylvan Awakening list. If you want to lean into land sacrifice, red/green does have cool cards like Devastating Summons Edge of Autumn and the classic Wildfire lists. Warped Landscape is interesting in land reanimation lists as a consistant land engine, but is far from perfect.

Personally, I'd look at focussing on a single strategy and going all-in on it- aiming to play as many lands as possible, or animate lots of lands, or destroy all the lands, or replay a lot of Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin . I hope you have fun brewing something up.

This seems like a fun deck to play. It evokes a feeling the Vintage Cube Wildfire archetype, yet the inclusion of planeswalkers and Tinker also offer a variety of ways to win. Certainly it presents an enjoyable gameplay!

SynergyBuild on Creating a Stax Ban List

6 months ago

First, what do you mean be stax?

There are tons of types. Often, it is in reference to a few, but there are tons.

Land destruction/land hate is a common type, but it is massive in scale is style:

Ravages of War , Armageddon , Ruination , Winter Orb , Back to Basics , Impending Disaster , Wildfire , Myojin of Infinite Rage , Decree of Annihilation , Cataclysm , Jokulhaups , Tectonic Break , Obliterate , etc.

This bleeds into more blurry lines, like Boil , which isn't necessarily land hate, but is color hate, or Blood Moon / Contamination , which are considered stax too.

Tax effects are plentiful too, Trinisphere , Nether Void , Sphere of Resistance , etc. are often considered staxy, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Vryn Wingmare , Glowrider , Thorn of Amethyst etc. are taxing, but so are Pendrell Mists , Magus of the Tabernacle , The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Kataki, War's Wage , etc. count too.

Even color hate like High Seas can count in that department, etc.


Point is, I've barely scratched the surface of the basic stax cards, not to mention synergies like Brago, King Eternal with Rishadan Cutpurse , etc.

I don't think you can ban stax.

Might drop a mountain for Bazaar of Baghdad . Wildfire should be in the deck already, gonna have to figure out how to fit it in.
