Introduction


I've always been interested in goofy commander decks built around a certain theme rather than a certain strategy (Ladies Looking Left, for example). One theme that struck me as a particular challenge was building a deck that relied solely on lands. 99 land commander decks are not a new concept, but most of them are either built as a meme or with a one turn win combo in mind. The real challenge comes from trying to create a coherent and consistent strategy. How are you supposed to win a serious game of commander without playing any spells in your deck?

In the past, a serious commander deck built around 99 lands was nigh impossible to pull off due to the lack of any coherent or consistent strategy. However, Core Set 2020 changed this with the introduction of Golos, Tireless Pilgrim and Field of the Dead. Golos's ability to tutor and ramp, along with the land synergy of Field of the Dead, fix both of the aforementioned issues.


Main Strategy


There are three main ideas that the deck is built around. 1. Ramp out Golos as early as possible. 2. Recur Golos and replay him as often as possible 3. Play lands that fetch or put more lands/tokens on to the battlefield.

Copy and Fetch Lands Show

TL;DR: Play Golos early with lands that produce extra mana. Fetch for Sanctum of Eternity and replay Golos as often as possible. Field of the Dead, Thespian's Stage, and Vesuva produce tokens after every land drop, and fetch lands help you play more lands per turn.

If you are wondering why X card isn't being played in the deck, chances are it's either inefficient or too much of a financial burden to be worth putting in the deck.
