Seeking expert input for Damia, Sage of Stone
Posted on June 7, 2018, 12:44 a.m. by Dr.Ache
Hello everyone it's been awhile hope all are well. I've recently acquired a Damia, Sage of Stone and I was hoping some of you great folks would make some suggestions on things to run with her.
Also I'd love to look at your decklists you may have made or any really good ones you can recall seeing.
I think I'm going to take the landfall route thats not to say I couldnt be convinced otherwise!
Can you be a bit more specific than just "landfall"? like are you wanting a beatdown deck that uses stuff like Rampaging Baloths or are you talking about land based combo that uses something like Tatyova, Benthic Druid and Laboratory Maniac to combo off?
As for decks, my Damia list is here: Damia Morgendorffer. It's a retired list but it went pretty well.

I'm going to be making this deck soon. My plan is to take advantage of refilling my hand every turn by using a ton of low cost and efficient cards

Something to consider is that Damia is an expensive general with a very powerful effect. Letting people refill their hand at the start of their turn is pretty dangerous. If your friends know what they're doing, they're going to kill Damia on sight. Every time. I guarantee it. As a result, most people with Damia decks treat her more as a backup to get the ball rolling again or use her to draw out hate. This way of building her also frees you to do whatever you want in BUG. There's a lot of creative freedom here, which is nice.
It's still possible to make a version of her where you just dump your hand each turn, but people might target you often for it. If you're interested in this type of deck, my general advice is to keep your average converted mana cost down, make sure you can play multiple lands per turn Oracle of Mul Daya, Exploration, Wayward Swordtooth, make sure most of your spells don't care too much about when you play them (Throwing out a Baleful Strix is always good but Negate cares about stuff like timing and spells being played), and ways to cheat costs.
The kind of Damia deck you're looking to build is commonly centered around Dream Halls. Id start by looking for EDH decks with Damia that run Dream Halls. You can run funky stuff like Insidious Dreams if you want too. Have fun!

some great suggestions and things to consider thanks for all the input so far.
I haven't really decided which cards I'll include or which ones I won't I'm just really looking for a comprehensive list. Dream Halls is a card I've had a lot of fun with in the past so thats probably a good starting point for me. Tatyova, Benthic Druid is a great suggestion.
