Ancient Ziggurat Discussion

RNR_Gaming on Slivers

My girlfriend just asked me to put Slivers back together. Anyways, as far as the land base goes I'm gunna list. Things out by cost/relevancy

duals I know eww reserved list but if you got em or can proxy em play em

Tundra, Plateau, Tropical Island, Volcanic Island, Bayou, Badlands, Scrubland, Savannah, Underground Sea, and Taiga

fetches they're getting their reprint in modern horizons 2 but still stupid expensive - but the fixing is just so good!

Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Scalding Tarn, Misty Rainforest, Prismatic Vista, Verdant Catacombs, Wooded Foothills, Bloodstained Mire, Windswept Heath, Marsh Flats and Arid Mesa

Utopia lands

Reflecting Pool, Cavern of Souls, City of Brass, Tarnished Citadel, Mana Confluence, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Meteor Crater, Pillar of the Paruns, Ancient Ziggurat, Path of Ancestry, Thran Quarry, Gemstone Mine, Aether Hub and Tendo Ice Bridge

I'm not a mega fan of the depletion lands but they're excellent if you're on a budget :)

shocks - you already got a few I'll recommend getting the rest

Blood Crypt, Temple Garden, Godless Shrine, Steam Vents and Sacred Foundry

Utility lands very overpriced cardboard but the power is definitely there

Mutavault, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Gaea's Cradle

From there, if those cards are out of budget/you cannot proxy I'd go with the Triomes, battlebond lands Sea of Clouds, check lands Hinterland Harbor, and lastly the painlands Battlefield Forge beyond those the lands start becoming too inefficient and you will be targeted playing slivers. Even if you're not the threat having a slow land base is a death sentence. Hope this helped :)

Feiryn Would I be able to get your opinion about some cards I'm considering purchasing for this deck? I've bought all of the land cards I mentioned earlier... However what are your thoughts about the following considering I'll have all of those fetch lands/shock lands too? Lotus Field, Lotus Vale, Ancient Ziggurat, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Meteor Crater, Unclaimed Territory.

well they are all standard legal except lands and the 8 changelings, and standards power level is a lot lower so it would do better there

In modern I think you're going to have to add some cards that may not synergize with the D&D theme but are still more effective (ex Path to Exile/Fatal Push/Lightning Bolt over Deadly Alliance)

A lot of these cards also look like something you would put in a limited deck you just drafted

Also, I don't think budget is a problem, so why not take out Ancient Ziggurat and stick in the whole 3 color fetch package, which also opens up more opportunities for less creatures? (since 31 is a lot)

also I would drop all four Ancient Ziggurats since you can't cast any of your other stuff with them. In its place I'd use Unclaimed Territory or Cavern of Souls ($$$$$!) naming scarecrow instead

G'day mate! Your mana base is indeed good, but I have a couple of suggestions you may find to your liking! Lets start off looking at your lands. I notice you have the shock lands, and true duals, which are pretty much some of the best so nice job there, as well as the check lands. There are a couple I would recommend however, that can be extremely helpful.

Fetch lands! Verdant Catacombs, Windswept Heath, Marsh Flats. These guys can search for the shock lands like Overgrown Tomb, giving you pretty much whatever color you need at the given moment which is super useful.

Filter lands! Take one color and poof it gives you a different color in a couple of combinations!Twilight Mire, Wooded Bastion, Fetid Heath.

Horizon lands and pain lands! These are some of my favorite, since they aren't conditional, like the check lands: which only can give you mana and come in untapped if you meet the requirement. These guys you can always rely on for mana, even at the cost. Nurturing Peatland, Horizon Canopy, Silent Clearing, Llanowar Wastes, Brushland, Caves of Koilos.

Fast lands! Those first few turns it can be nice to have untapped lands, right? Maybe use these! Blooming Marsh, Razorverge Thicket, Concealed Courtyard!

There is also a long list of multi lands that function very well- even better than some of the ones I just mentioned! Here are some of them you might like

I also recommend some more ramp cards, like Birds of Paradise, Exploration, Sylvan Caryatid, Burgeoning, Arcane Signet, Emerald Medallion, Jet Medallion, Pearl Medallion, Lotus Petal, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Bloom Tender (adds three mana with your commander out) and many more!

In the end if any of this helps be sure to check out some of my decks, like Double Trouble EDH and A Deal With the Devil EDH, which I recently updated both of which with CSS and huge descriptions! Anyways though, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day! Happy tapping!

Could go for Unclaimed Territory or even Ancient Ziggurat as budget-ish caverns.

Howdy there and nice deck! Here are some suggestions you might appreciate! I notice you have the shock lands and the check lands but I think your deck would perform a lot better with some extra stuff. Consider some of thee following!

In the end, I would definitely consider all of these lands as they are very helpful and can help your journey go much much MUCH smoother, especially in commander! If this helps, be sure to check out some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH) among others! Upvote them if you like them and be sure to give me suggestions if you have any, I would appreciate it. Anyways though, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day! Happy tapping!

DemMeowsephs thanks for advice. You miss too Mana Confluence. Its there from the beginning.

Ancient Ziggurat is for creatures. But now i have 19 noncreature spells. Thats alot for this land.

As good advice is Tarnished Citadel. But only for situation, when i need more mana stabilisation.

Reflecting Pool and Meteor Crater aare useless when i havent split multicolored permanent or triple lands, as Triome-lands.

Gaea's Cradle is ...OP :) , but i dont need too much green mana and when i lay 32 lands, i cant have this land in first 3 turns.
