Blighted Steppe Discussion
5 months ago
You might consider some land ramp for early Gishath on board: Rampant Growth , Farseek , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Circuitous Route , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim and Hour of Promise will do it. You might also consider swap some suboptimal lands for more basics: Blighted Steppe , Tranquil Expanse , Timber Gorge , Rugged Highlands , Vivid Meadow .

I already have Glowspore Shaman, so it's no money out of my pocket to have it in the deck. Though, Stitcher's Supplier would work fine as well. 25 lands probably is too much with having Birds of Paradise as well. I could potentially replace Blighted Steppe with Verdant Catacombs. I'm not exactly sure what I was thinking there. I'm not sure if I really need more removal, but I do like Damnation. I might end up putting that in the mainboard. I also really enjoy Ghoultree. I could potentially replace Ghalta, Primal Hunger with it. Either that or possibly Molderhulk. But then I would have no way of retrieving lands sent to the graveyard by Glowspore Shaman. Let me know if you had a place in mind for it. I mainly like Greenseeker for its ability to help populate the graveyard and activate Grim Flayer's delirium state. If I put Chromatic Lantern in the sideboard, I would have room for either Fatal Push or Damnation. I think I might actually lean more towards Fatal Push for its ability to combo with Bone Splinters. You've certainly given me a lot to consider, and I greatly appreciate your suggestions. Many thanks, friend.

First of all, what's your budget?
I understand why you have added the lantern (to have all types of mana and win with Door to Nothingness), but since you need it with the door, why don't you put it in the sideboard? Personally (so it's just my opinion), I won't run either it and the door in this deck

All things I am going to suggest are under $2 cards. If your looking for something in a higher budget let me know.
Cards to get rid of:
Ajani's Pridemate and Child of Night They seem like they would work but they do not do enough
Arena Rector No really good planeswalker to find.
Bloodcrazed Hoplite, Knight of Malice, Oketra's Avenger, Typhoid Rats, Skittering Heartstopper, and Fate Unraveler Don't see how they fit in at all
Danitha Capashen, Paragon No Equipement but a decent creature.
Harvestguard Alseids Not running enough enchantments
Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood Not in your commander colors (has red)
Replace all of these creatures with creatures that do 1 of 4 things:
Produce a creature token
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet from your side board
Gain you life
Pontiff of Blight, Syndic of Tithes, Tithe Drinker, Treasury Thrull, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest are all good examples. In multiplayer EDH extort good.
Burnished Hart. Crypt Ghast He is like $3.50 but he is really good in this deck Draw a card
Bloodgift Demon and Mentor of the Meek are good examples.
You should have all your instants and sorceries do some kind of board wipe or removal. The ones that are a one shot gain life just aren't good.
Your enchantments are good.

I think you'll want to up your lands to 23-25. Blighted Steppe/Kabira Crossroads help you out. Aven Riftwatcher is also a very good creature, it only last a few turns but is great for them, and I like Nyx-Fleece Ram. Survival Cache is a way for you to draw cards.

Played at Mothership
2-1 vs Burn 1-2 vs Merfolk 2-1 vs Ponza
Definitely took the three drop and land advice to heart Played a instant speed Angel of Invention off Windbrisk Heights vs ponza which was nice Also cracked Blighted Steppe for 10 against burn for all the lolz

Nice looking deck.
You might run into problems facing early AoE-damage, since all but one of your early game creatures have 1 toughness as long as you dont pull out your Archangel of Thune or Honor of the Pure fast enough.
Maybe one or two Wilt-Leaf Liege would be a nice addition in that regard.
Westvale Abbey Flip is a cute idea, but the mana cost is far too high in my opinion + killing of 5 creatures (that are likely to have some +1/+1 counters on them at this point of the game) slows you down more than it benefits you I think.
But all in all a cool deck :-)
