When Lands Become Your Worst Nightmare



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

Goal of Deck

  1. Work towards getting infinite mana

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.

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 omnath..my 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!
