Windswept Heath Discussion

clayperce on Close Your Eyes (And Count to Ten)

17 hours ago,
Congrats on getting the Windswept Heaths. A few thoughts on Fetches ...

  • I notice Misty Rainforest in your maybeboard, but I'd recommend Wooded Foothills instead. They don't look as nice, but they're the second-least expensive of the Green Fetches.
  • It can be useful sometimes to leave an un-cracked Fetch on the battlefield. E.g., for a Landfall trigger on Groundswell or to Fetch Dryad Arbor in response to a -2 from Liliana of the Veil.
  • You might look at adding some Become Immense. The card is absurdly powerful if you can reliably get a bunch of cards into the Graveyard, and the Fetches help a lot.

One more thing: I personally like Vines of Vastwood more than Blossoming Defense, so would run a 3-3 split or 4-2 the other way. Partly because Vines can go up to +4/+4 (although the extra mana is a heavy price). But mostly because 'can't be the target or spells or abilities your opponents control this turn' is much better than 'gains hexproof'. The deal with Vines is you can also cast it on an opponent's Creature, and then they can't target their own dude that turn with pump spells, or Equip abilities, or really anything that targets.

As always, draw well!

This deck looks more like a Bogles deck rather than a life gain deck. (

But if the life gain aspect is something you want to go forward with, cards like Serra Ascendant or Divinity of Pride are things to consider.

As for the mana base, it can can consist of some assortment of Windswept Heaths, Temple Gardens, Razorverge Thickets, and basics.

Your mana base seems pretty ambitious. I'd try to cut down to atleast 3 colors but if you are determined here's what i'd run in a 5 color deck

You could try a fetch shock mana base but thats pretty expensive. (A fetch like Flooded Strand can get any color of mana via Hallowed Fountain, Steam Vents, Windswept Heath, Godless Shrine for example)

Ancient Ziggurat works for your creatures

The 10 tri lands: Seaside Citadel, Arcane Sanctum, Crumbling Necropolis, Savage Lands, Jungle Shrine, Sandsteppe Citadel, Mystic Monastery, Opulent Palace, Nomad OutpostFrontier Bivouac

If you have enough tappedlands Amulet of Vigor might be worth considering

Chromatic Lantern aslo is probably needed.

If you were to make this deck a little less budget fetches are a must 3 Bloodstained Mire 3 Windswept Heath and 4 Wooded Foothills (note I used the cheaper khans fetches).

Could use some work, to be honest. Cards to add:

Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Bloodstained Mire, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs, Arid Mesa, Priest of Urabrask, Dryad Arbor, Glimpse of Nature, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Emrakul, the Promised End, Sylvan Safekeeper, Primordial Sage, Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Worldly Tutor.

Things to cut: Lumbering Falls, Raging Ravine, Jace Beleren, Cinder Glade, the checklands, Mosswort Bridge, Earthcraft, your remaining basics, and most of your large creatures are underwhelming. This deck seems to have the classic Animar problem: too stompy to hold its own at TRULY competitive tables, and too commander-reliant (though that of course comes with the territory in this kind of deck).

Since you yourself have talked about Windswept Heath, and fortunately its not the most expensive fetchland, I'll go ahead and propose a mana base with it:

4x Windswept Heath

2x Stirring Wildwood

4x Temple Garden

3x Sunpetal Grove

4x Forest

3x Plains

In your Colors, Horizon Canopy is an Option, albeit a very expensive one.

Unflinching Courage is pretty terrible. if you want an effect like this, Basilisk Collar is the way to go.

Generally speaking, i think 5drop planeswalkers are too greedy, even with acceleration. The only reason you would Need Cryptolith Rite is to cast them, and rite is just a bad Card in many situations.

I would dop all 4 Cards that occupy those Slots and work on redundancy, or possibly include some Kitchen Finks. you could max out on Voice of Resurgence too, its really powerful.

Doomed Traveler might also be worth a thought. it becomes Spectral Procession with Parallel Lives.

You shouldnt play Spell Pierce main board you should instead play more pump spells. I would also suggest cutting how many unblockable spells you play. I would personally cut the Distortion Strike and Artful Dodge and keep the Slip Through Space if you really want to. You should also consider dropping the Ichorclaw Myr and instead play x4 Birds of Paradise. For pump you should bump Might of Old Krosa to x4 and the same for Groundswell. You should also not play Misty Rainforest you should instead play Windswept Heath and Wooded Foothills they are cheaper and do the same job of fetching Breeding Pool. And you should also cut the Rancor for more pump spells. You should also add Apostle's Blessing and Dismember
