World Shaper Discussion
2 days ago
Still haven't been able to go through it thoroughly, but here's a quick thought.
When I was doing a bunch of test runs with my current version, a large amount of basic lands seems strong with Boundless Realms, especially with a Scapeshift to lead in or follow after, and Splendid Reclamation or World Shaper. However, I also appreciate the swiss army land setup with the any-land searches the main theme already supplies.
With that in mind, what do you feel the top 8-10 Utility lands for this deck would be? Then perhaps a combo land of each colour combination for fixing? It seems like that's all that might be needed as the land searches often come quickly.
Or am I missing the boat on something bigger?

xander11 No problem!
Hmm Protean Hulk is a hard one as you want to find the right balance between reanimation targets as well as cmc curve. As much as I like Seasons Past it can be a doable swap. Either that or Whisper, Blood Liturgist.
I'm not too sure how your meta is like but I hope this helps!

hkhssweiss Thanks for your help, I really like most of the cards you're suggesting but I'm not sure what to cut for them. I definitely want World Shaper and Protean Hulk Vindictive Lich is another great addition. Do you have suggestions for cards that don't do enough in the deck?

Definitely a great fit for this deck Abzkaban; I have it in the maybeboard under the landsmatter strategy. Not only would it be great late game with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, but even if Ob Nixilis, Unshackled was my main strategy in a particular game, it's actually a fantastic early game mana fixer (especially with Crucible of Worlds or Ramunap Excavator in play), and mana ramper with World Shaper or Splendid Reclamation. It layers well as those last two cards also get Field of Ruin back in a pinch, and Scapeshift will get Field of Ruin from the library if I don't have it in play yet while Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is within reach. The two strategies combine well together.
It's been pure value in the playtests - you know something belongs in the deck when you're always happy to see it on the topdeck.
I was thinking I'd share the test-pilot deck with you and a few others when I have it a little further as I would appreciate some help tuning it a bit more before making it public.

xander11 Since you checked out my deck, I'll check out yours :P
Some suggestions, you can use Body Snatcher as a pseudo Karmic Guide/Phyrexian Delver that can also swap cards from your hand while you have your big fatties in there, this card is a secret tech that not much people know about! xD
While I know your more creature heavy, there is good in using reanimation type cards like the cheap effect ones such as Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, as well as Reanimate (Luckily it's getting reprinted in UMA so that $20 price tag doesn't stay for long). While this card may be broken, Protean Hulk does a lot for your build when you have to sac him to Vraska or Jarad, getting both value and efficiency. I can see there being loops with it going for infinite recursion, but that's if your all for going the combo route.
Some great cards to also run would be like Oversold Cemetery so you can keep a constant amount of creatures to be fodder and sac over and over again. With this in mind some recent cards like Vindictive Lich and Plaguecrafter get extremely fun! Hell's Caretaker is way too slow and there is a better option in Apprentice Necromancer. I'm also surprised you aren't running Living Death unless you run into a creature heavy meta than it's understandable. World Shaper is also one to think about as it is pure value, especially if you delve into a Dredge route as well.
Hope that gives you some feedback and feel free to ask any questions or advice!

KayneMarco While it doesn't appear in my maybeboard list of cards, I did briefly consider World Shaper, and here's why I don't like him: As a general rule, unless playing some very specific mechanics, I don't like any card that blindly sends cards from my library to my graveyard. I really only have Elixir of Immortality for non-land recursion in this deck and I'm really gonna want to get to my Crucible of Worlds to get things going. I think I'd immediately tear up World Shaper the first time he sent it to my graveyard if I were playing him. As far as the second ability, while his death does cause a Splendid Reclamation (which you'll see I'm also not running here) which could be a bomb play with the right board state, I don't like that I wouldn't necessarily have much control over when that happens. A well timed opponent removal spell with either no/few lands in the GY or no/few landfall triggers available and World Shaper is more or less a vanilla 3/3 for 4 to me. I certainly see the possibilities but I just felt like I didn't have a slot for him. Thanks for the suggestion though, greatly appreciated! I certainly used your Windgrace deck for some ideas as I was building this one.

As to what KayneMarco and McToters were saying, Overlaid Terrain is more of a budget version of Squandered Resources, and with all the land reanimation effects you are running you can get an excessive amount of mana i.e. Splendid Reclamation, World Shaper, etc. Even more so if you combine it with Amulet of Vigor those lands will come in untapped and tap for two each.
Some other cards to contemplate about:
- Oracle of Mul Daya
- Wayward Swordtooth
- Putrid Imp
- Noxious Revival
- Traverse the Ulvenwald
Hope that helps!

thats why i suggested Wayward Swordtooth as well and crucible allows you to sac lands quicker than muldrotha for value.
World Shaper would be i good include, maybe 2-3 more lands as well, there is a lot of land sac here.
