Boza on Herald of Leshrac - Upkeep?

15 hours ago

Cumulative upkeep is short hand for "At the beginning of your upkeep, place an age counter on this permanent, then pay the described cost X times, where X is the number of age counters. If you can't, sacrifice this permanent". Taking opponents lands is not really a normal cost, but hey.

So, every upkeep, you will put another age counter on it and "acquire" that many lands from opponents - first upkeep 1 land, second turn 2 lands, and so on.

If someone say Go for the Throat'ed Herald of Lesharc, you can activate Zuran Orb as much as needed to sacrifice all of the opponents lands and give them back nothing.

nibsey on Herald of Leshrac - Upkeep?

I would like clarifiaction on how the upkeep for Herald of Leshrac actually works, please?

The way I see it, I need to take control of an opponents land each turn, and sac Leshrac when no more opponent land is available?

Does the upkeep include land I have already aquired? or can I sacrifiace newly aquired land through Zuran Orb to gain life, without having to sac him?

Many thanks, Nibsey

Looking at the pairing of Herald of Leshrac + Zuran Orb as opponent land destruction.

Is this a legit card combo for life gain?

Thanks for your help...

Hi there,

That sounds good, I'll go ahead and initiate this trade.

I also saw some other cards in your binder that I was interested in. For simplicity's sake, we could treat them as two separate deals, but ship them out together?

Would you do...

Thanks for the input on my deck!

This looks pretty awesome!

Green White has always been my favorite combo.The infinite life combos you can create for yourself are very easy to do, and help immensely!

If you're looking to go this route, consider adding Zuran Orb and Fastbondto the ranks to compliment that Crucible of Worlds you already have in there.

I'm also a fan of the Spike Feeder and Archangel of Thune combo if you want to go even further...

Anyway, Cheers!

Goblin Wizard - Slow, and Moggcatcher/Goblin Recruiter are much more important with so few non-token goblins. Cavern makes up for his cast protection.

Mycosynth Lattice - I really wanted to work this card in, especially to spread Darksteel Forge to my whole board, but it just costs way too much for what it does, and it hurts the effect that Blood Moon has on my opponent's non-basics.

Zuran Orb - Although I don't like losing my only real lifegain, it didn't do enough to warrant keeping the spot.


Liquimetal Coating - Replacing Mycosynth for now. Interacts well with Slobad, Daretti, Welder, and Forge. We'll see if it ends up being worth it.

Bonfire of the Damned - I need a few more mana sinks, and big sweepers, so this will be included until I find something strictly better. Works very well with Repercussion.

Gravity Sphere - This is a temporary include until I find something else to fit the slot. My regular playgroup is really flyer heavy, but there has to be better ways to deal with them than just taking their flying away.

Still looking for a few more instants, as well as working more mana rocks in to better cover me when I have sac'd some lands.

Thanks darleenfor all the suggestions! I think getting the lands into my graveyard has been pretty successful with the draw/discard, but I really like Zuran Orb for some life gain. Fetch lands are a little out of my price range at the moment, but I really like Mirrorpool and might look at taking out the Ghost Quarter for it. I also really like The Gitrog Monster, but ending up cutting him after play testing, but I might add him back in since like how much he allows you to do every turn

How about Crop Rotation, Zuran Orb, Scapeshift, Dredge, Dreamscape Artist, Harrow, Merciless Resolve, or Reprocess to help put lands in your Graveyard? Other lands to consider are Terminal Moraine, Warped Landscape, Cephalid Coliseum, Mirrorpool, Petrified Field, Ash Barrens or Blighted Woodland. And perhaps some fetch lands if its in your budget. Have you considered The Gitrog Monster, Thundering Wurm, Fallow Wurm?
