Lord Windgrace actually cares about lands now. Lots of value, plenty of graveyard shenanigans.


I was originally down on Lord Windgrace. In all appearances he seems to just be a worse Gitrog Monster deck that coincidentally had Omnath, Locus of Rage . After looking deeper into what Red had to offer the lands archetype, and also some test games in the current iteration, I realized Lord Windgrace works better at recurring lands than anything, which led me to the conclusion that the best way to competitively build Lord Landgrace is Mass Land Destruction. Windgrace can recover far more quickly from MLD, stays on the battlefield through an Obliterate or Jokulhaups (both of which work really well if you have a World Shaper on the battlefield). In addition, I've upgraded the land destruction lands to Strip Mine , Tectonic Edge , and Dust Bowl . I might try to get a Wasteland in but that's expensive. Thanks, Legacy.

I'm also looking for alternative wincons to MLD. I currently run one Torment of Hailfire , which won me the first game I played the old iteration of this deck with a torment with an X in the 70s (sacrificing and replaying a Cabal Coffers for multiple activations). I might try adding an Exsanguinate or other similar effect, perhaps a Helix Pinnacle for fun.

Obviously MLD isn't for everyone, and a lot of people will hate it. My local meta is very powerful, and borderline cEDH, so I feel comfortable playing it when we're playing higher level games.

I have a sideboard to remove the MLD, in case people object to it. I am going to add another list on here showing the post sideboarded deck.

Cards out: World Shaper , Splendid Reclamation , The Mending of Dominaria , Epicenter , Jokulhaups , Obliterate , Decree of Annihilation , Tectonic Break

Cards I'm looking to cut:

Zuran Orb , Hour of Promise . Hour gets Urborg.coffers, but I'm not sure it's worth the investment. 5 mana is a lot. Zuran orb is a cute lifegain thing for my MLD, and maybe has some other uses but I'm not convinced it needs a spot.
