Who would have thought that something as innocuous as lands can become everyone's worst nightmare. They kept coming, relentless, and with dreadful side effects. This is a landfall-reanimator combo deck that aims to control the board through land/creature recursion and win the moment an infinite mana combo is assembled.

Thrasios, Triton Hero (let's call him Tim) is the main landfall guy as well as the combo finisher to draw out my entire deck with infinite mana. Tim is like that guy at the bar who is desperately trying to get laid but can't do it without his wingman. Yeah, you gotta agree that Tim is pretty pathetic by himself and that's why he has Ravos, Soultender (let's call him Alex) as his wingman to help him get laid. Alex is a pretty good wingman, he helps Tim get important creatures back from the yard as well as pump some steroids into those landfall generated tokens.

This is my pet deck and I just build it to satisfy my immense love for landfall and its shenanigans. Seeing landfall triggers is as satisfying as eating a sundae icecream on a hot summer afternoon. The real question is...

...did Tim get laid in the end? Show

  1. Work towards getting infinite mana
  2. Cast Thrasios, Triton Hero to draw entire deck
  3. Win by assembling any of the landfall combos below

Primary Infinite Combos

Combo Payoffs with Infinite Landfall Triggers

Other Notable Combos

Thrasios, Triton Hero

Thrasios could be played as early as turn 1 and can start generating card advantage the longer it stays in play. There are a few cards that makes him great:

Ravos, Soultender

With Ravos out, every discard effect turns into +1 CA if a creature is discarded. This essentially turns every creature into Squee, Goblin Nabob. The following are cards which Ravos can exploit with:

The following are tips and tricks that I feel are important to know in this deck:

My love for landfall started with Omnath, Locus of Rage (now retired and converted to this deck). Being in gruul really limits my possibility of abusing landfall triggers and I wanted to see what I can do if colors wasn't a problem. The introduction of partner commanders is Godsend and has provided me with a great pair to helm my new landfall deck. Losing wasn't easy, having no access to my old trusty Omnath, Locus of Rage and Mina and Denn, Wildborn does hurt. However, having really opens up to a whole new world of landfall shenanigans that I can abuse and having access to The Gitrog Monster is a sweet bonus.

Volrath's Stronghold? All of the Combo Payoffs with Infinite Landfall Triggers are creatures so I'm thinking the ability to get them or other creatures back would be useful, especially on a land. Also it keeps you from milling if it comes to that.

Thephelddagrif: Great suggestion, I might have to find some space for it. Thanks!

Ramunap Excavator should be considered for an additional Crucible effect! Maybe even Squandered Resources to go along with Splendid Reclamation?

n0bunga: Awesome suggestions and Ramunap Excavator is literally Godsend. It's like the second coming of Christ for landfall decks. So excited to get my hand on that!

I've found infinite mill (vie Hedron Crab) to be a somewhat unreliable strategy in my metas at least (because so many people run Eldrazi titans). Perhaps swap it for Retreat to Hagra.

With only three basic lands, you could remove them and play a secondary Hermit Druid combo (with the odd finisher of Splendid Reclamation).

Also, since all the cards in your deck have distinct names, Tainted Pact is a surprisingly good tutor.

Speaking of tutors - since Retreat to Coralhelm seems to be important in so many combos, Enlightened Tutor is a must.

How about Tempt with Discovery?

Also, Knight of the Reliquary seems at least decent (though I suppose you may not have enough lands with basic types).

Take my +1 ;)

Daedalus19876: Thanks for your suggestions. I like the suggestion of Retreat to Hagra...tainted pact seemed kinda scary to be exiling a bunch of cards..could be worth testing out to find that last combo piece. I like Tempt with Discovery and I used to run it in my angry playgroup however caught on and did not take the bait for this card to be worth it anymore unfortunately. Enlightened tutor is definitely going in!

How does it play? Looks Really cool. I love locus of rage

Msg_magic: It's actually very fun to pilot. Just assembling the landfall engine and seeing it go off is extremely satisfying (even if I lose in the end). I originally played locus of rage too, unfortunately he got too oppressive which made me decide to purge him into a 4 color landfall version to focus more on the engine than smashing face. Glad you like it!

Now, this is a pretty spicy deck! I recently made a BUG landfall deck myself using Tasigur, the Golden Fang. Landfall is super fun. Here is my decklist if you care to check it out. Your deck seems really fun and has given me more inspiration to make my deck even better! Well done!

Wow. Brilliantly creative build, man. Never considered those commanders for a landfall deck.

July 5, 2017 3:25 p.m.

This is seriously gorgeous.
I decided to go Landfall combo with Kynaios and Tiro, gives you most of the same but it really does lose out on swapping red for black, and for not having Thrasios ready at all times for infinite mana shenanigans.
Real talk, how much value do you find you get out of Ravos other than giving you your colour combination? He always seemed super slow and easily killed to be worth it to me. Especially since you have to wait on a full round of the board and your opponents can easily see (mostly) what you have the option to get back.
