RussischerZar - Human Advisor

Hi,

I usually just play online casually through either Cockatrice or the Duels of the Planeswalkers series. As of recently I can also sometimes be found on MTGO. I also like limited and attend most prerelease events, where I got the bulk of my paper cards.

Hit me up if you like to play or want to trade stuff on MTGO although my collection there is rather limited. If you have some free ones to give away though, I'm looking to expand my collection without paying too much. :)

Also, have a good article on building manabases, you're welcome.

Said on Too Many Threats...

#1

I actually would have suggested replacing the Sylvan Caryatids, but I also don't like 4 Warden of the First Trees, I think 3 should be good enough. Maybe you can also include a couple of Elvish Mystics instead as you currently have ~8 T1 plays (either tapped land or Warden) and you should probably be doing other things on T2 than mana ramping. Also, Dragonlord Dromoka seems like the odd man (or rather dragon) out. I can guess why she's in here and I actually also really like fun-of's, but I'm not sure this is the right deck for her, at least in the mainboard.

Another thing to point out is that Courser of Kruphix is the only enchantment in your mainboard, where you're opening yourself up for the occasional 2-for-1 by Dromoka's Command or enabling your opponent's mainboard enchantment removal. I know it's a really good card but I'd rather not play an enchantment creature if I'm not all-in on it, especially since it's rather defensive.

My suggestions would therefore be:-2 Sylvan Caryatid-1 Dragonlord Dromoka-1 Warden of the First Tree-1 Courser of Kruphix+2 Elvish Mystic+3 Fleecemane Lion

Sideboard:-1 Dromoka, the Eternal+1 Dragonlord Dromoka

What I also would like to know, is what your experience with Geist of the Moors is.

I think what he means is a table listing of all the cards in a deck which I've seen in multiple articles here on TappedOut.

I really like these kind of ideas, however unlikely they are. Someone forward this to the lore guy at WotC

Not sure that's a valid reason not to play it. Pretty much all your other creatures except Brimaz (and the singletons Courser + Dromoka) die to the same removal, and the Lion even dodges Ultimate Price. T4 EOT Collected Company into T5 land -> monstrosity could also be a big thing to do. And you can potentially even do it a turn earlier with Caryatid.

I don't want to talk you into anything but I think he would have a valid place in this deck.

Any reason why there are no Fleecemane Lions in the deck?

April 18, 2015 10:15 p.m.

Thanks! :)

I fixed some issues with both lists thanks to the comments and Gatherer, now it should be pretty much 100% complete and correct.

Especially since Teferi's Isle isn't really a utility land. Renamed them to #Dominarialegends, even though some of them would not technically have been on dominaria originally. :)

@Rhadamanthus: Oopsie on the double include. I also thought that Academy Ruins fit a lot better in the #Utilitylegends cycle, but never figured there was another cycle of legendaries in the Time Spiral block. That must have somehow slipped through the cracks. Thanks for pointing it out, will fix :)

April 17, 2015 9:54 a.m.

I thought for quite a bit about which forum to put this in and I think it's most closely an article, so that's why I put it here. @ Moderators: feel free to move if you find it would fit better in another forum.

@meecht: The categories names automatically have their first letter capitalized and the rest in lowercase. I tried a lot of different things to serve as separator, like dash, unterscore, full stop and whatnot, but nothing worked. :( So yeah, we have to stick with how it's written now unfortunately.

Thanks all for your positive feedback. :)
