Botanical Sanctum Discussion

nathanielhebert on Walls of Ire

The efficient land cards are what make this set more expensive, but the sturdy defender deck can afford to slow things down with cheaper mana alternatives. On the plus side, the guild-gates at our disposal look like we're building up more walls, and the scry from the various Temple of Mystery 's helps to put the combo pieces we need into our hands.

A slimmer version:

1x Botanical Sanctum , 3x Temple of Mystery

1x Fortified Village , 3x Temple of Plenty

1x Glacial Fortress , 2x Temple of Enlightenment

1x Hallowed Fountain , 3x Azorius Guildgate

1x Wooded Bastion , 3x Selesnya Guildgate

1x Island 1x Forest

I would honestly take out 2 Snakeskin Veil for 2 Distortion Strike , then replace the last 1 for a full playset of Blossoming Defense . You've got plenty of better hexproof options with Vines of Vastwood and Blossoming Defense . Infect is all about killing your opponent by turn 3. If you give them enough time to get blockers out, it won't matter anymore, so the bigger pump spells are better. If you ever get fetchlands for the deck, you can add Dryad Arbor for a fetch target that can help you survive sacrifice effects. Since Infect is such a fast deck, a pretty budget land you can run is Botanical Sanctum . It'll do wonders for your manabase.

TriusMalarky on Dime-store Derevi (Competitive, Budget $100)

You have 11 taplands. 11. When playing cEDH, the most you have is 1. Ever. Yavimaya Coast , Botanical Sanctum , Exotic Orchard , Sungrass Prairie , Skycloud Expanse , Sunpetal Grove , Glacial Fortress , Hinterland Harbor , Razorverge Thicket , Seachrome Coast , Spire of Industry . You'll have to spend a little more, but it's only like $30. And without that, you're never gonna win at a cEDH table.

Also, Edric, Spymaster of Trest , Triton Shorestalker , Mist-Cloaked Herald , Slither Blade , Gudul Lurker .

You're also not running Spell Pierce , Autumn's Veil , Dovin's Veto , Swords to Plowshares , Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Path to Exile , Dispel , Mystical Dispute , Delay . Those are pretty much necessary. Also, Neoform , Eldritch Evolution , Eladamri's Call .

Most of your combos are . . . not cEDH viable. They require you to run taplands AND bad ramp cards and they require you to have several pieces on top of just needing several cards that aren't good outside the combo.

Now, is this a solid deck that will do well in moderately tuned games? Definitely. But it isn't competitive. And it is totally possible to make a competitive deck without going over $200, you just lose some of the speed and have to build your deck a bit differently to stay in the game.

Hey, I would suggest adding a Simic Growth Chamber instead of Botanical Sanctum . Infinite card draw with aesi or tatyova. I also added a Cloudstone Curio because it enables infinite loops with kodama triggers

Hey there! Kinnan is a super broken and cool commander, and I might just have a few suggestions for you! You might want to try cards like Hinterland Harbor since you have a lot of basics, along with Flooded Grove, Waterlogged Grove, and possibly a Botanical Sanctum! If you have the budget, Ancient Tomb, Prismatic Vista, Reflecting Pool, and Strip Mine would work very well too as I've found in some of my decks. To add to the fun, while Umbral Mantle does indeed go infinite with some dorks, so do Sword of the Paruns and Staff of Domination, tripling the combos in that area! If you want to add to the elf theme, I feel like Elvish Archdruid should definitely be in here, as should Copperhorn Scout. If you attack with copperhorn (keep in mind it's also an elf!) then you untap all your other dorks and get to play A TON of more stuff, even if copperhorn dies it will still surely be worth it! One huge card you are missing is also Leyline of Abundance, acting almost as another Kinnan and getting you way more mana, as well as being a place you can pull infinite mana into for a quick win. Last but not least, I have a bunch of other ramp spells you may want to consider adding! Nyxbloom Ancient, Mana Reflection, (cards like Awakening, Seedborn Muse, and Wilderness Reclamation let you activate your dorks to use on Kinnan on sometimes EVERY PLAYERS TURN AGAIN, giving you multiple turns worth of value by the time its back to you turn again!) and a few more you can find under my decks!. Seems like a cool deck, good luck on it, hope this helps, and have a swell day! Happy tapping!

Hey there! I would recommend more ramp and some different lands! Maybe some of the following can be of use to you?

In the end let me know what you think! Did I miss anything? Or if you have any questions for me or want further help feel free to ask I'd love to help! If this does help be sure to check and support some of my decks: Double Trouble EDH, A Deal With the Devil EDH, and many others! Anyways though, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!!! Happy tapping!

DemMeowsephs on Tatyova's Playground (Simic Landfall/Draw EDH)

Hey there! Your manabase looks GREAT, but there are a great many upgrades I would recommend making as you continue to upgrade your deck! I would consider some of the following lands!

In the end, having a good mana base is important, and since your deck revolves around your mana base I think it definitely deserves a good upgrade in that regard. If this helps be sure to check out and support some of my decks- like Double Trouble EDH and A Deal With the Devil EDH! Anyways though hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!
