Altar of Dementia is looking pretty good for us. It has nice synergy with Colossus. Perhaps as a one of or maybe even replacing Grinding Station . More testing required.

I've been considering swapping out Phyrexia's Core for Buried Ruin or Academy Ruins . I feel like we have plenty of other sack outlets and getting back a key combo piece from the graveyard is more important.

I dropped Mind Stone as I found its value questionable. Mox Opal is better as ramp and enables the possibility of a pre-turn 3 combo but I don't have $500 for them so I filled the slot with the Myr Retriever . After quite a bit of play testing Myr Retriever is a must in this deck (3-4). I dropped one Scrap Trawler . You want to keep one around for the classic combos in this deck.

The London Mull Rule will help us a lot. It might even be better to turn this into a blue deck to protect our combo instead of trying to find the combo with Ancient Stirrings .

More on turning blue Reshape finds our pieces and has nice synergy as a sac outlet and triggers Ichor Wellspring . Whir of Invention a similar story.

There are some interesting possibilities in white too but I won't bring them up here. See the .

OUT: Grove of the Burnwillows IN: Fiery Islet if we go blue

OUT: Mind Stone IN: Myr Retriever

OUT: Phyrexia's Core IN: Buried Ruin or Academy Ruins

Thank you for your feedback and it's great to hear from another Titania player! I would love to see your list. My list has become very foiled over the years, but that's just because I love the deck! To address your suggestions:

  1. I definitely like the idea of Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage , but I've kept my lands pretty refined to what they are now. I would probably cut a nonland card and Tectonic Edge for them.

  2. I definitely agree with Pir's Whim and at this point, I'm not sure why it isn't in my deck. I must have been distracted by other cards in Battlebond to have not notice it during spoiler season back then. Ha!

  3. Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is definitely a no from me. The trample is mediocre and I can just make more 5/3 elementals if I don't have enough damage on board. The wrath protection is interesting though. I recently added Natural Affinity to my list, and it does the same thing, but at instant speed and 3 mana. Also, the deck is already good at rebuilding from boardwipes. Usually killing my board means Titania is dying, which lets me play her again for more ramp and value.

  4. Green is so bad at removal. I run very little interaction other than land destruction. Mouth of Ronom definitely would work as a way to interact with my opponents more. Thanks for the idea! I've also ran Karn Liberated at some point because he is great removal. I'm also going to being trying out Ugin, the Ineffable because of Haven of the Spirit Dragon synergy.

  5. Zuran Orb has been pretty bad lately, so I might drop it for other Lifegain cards. Buried Ruin is a good idea, but the artifacts I run aren't essential to my gameplay. Seasons Past and Eternal Witness do the same thing.

As for Food Chain , I removed the Food Chain package to lower the power level of the deck. The package is genuinely insane in the deck, but my group didn't really like to play against it. Instead, I put together a General Tazri Food Chain cEDH deck with it. I highly recommend Food Chain in Titania though. You can exile tokens for creature mana. With Command Beacon + Food Chain , you get infinite 5/3 elementals and with a land sac outlet, you can get infinite mana to cast other spells by casting Titania and bring back lands to convert the Food Chain mana into normal mana. Otherwise, if you have a Strip Mine in your graveyard, you can just cast Titania infinitely and bring back Strip Mine and kill all your opponent's lands. Food Chain is busted.

Again, thanks for the suggestions!

Nice deck! I am a fellow Titania player, though my list is quite a bit more budget restrained than this one. I do however still have a few suggestions that have at least worked really well for me:

  1. Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage make the perfect duo for Hour of Promise . And with land recursion it's certainly not uncommon for Marit Lage to make multiple entrances during a single game.

  2. Pir's Whim , I think this card is just awesome for Titania decks.

  3. Kamahl, Fist of Krosa for trample and wrath protection.

  4. Mouth of Ronom + at least 1x Snow-Covered Forest , I find in my list I often lack ways to interact with what my opponents are doing, and this is a really good way to counter decks that think they have all the counters ;)

  5. Claws of Gix for Zuran Orb redundancy. In my deck Buried Ruin does really well as those artifacts almost always get hated on the moment I try to stick em.

Overall this looks like a super strong and well thought-out list. Definitely +1 from me!

Follow up question: I see you recently removed Food Chain from your deck, may I ask why? That's a card that has been on my radar but due to its price I haven't gone for it yet.

You got a quite high curve dont you want some ramp? Plays well with your artifact theme, Sol Ring is the strongest ofc.

And with 30 swamps Cabal Stronghold feels like a good fit, Buried Ruin also have every low cost to add to you deck.

I've yet to format an oathbreaker deck in tappedout, so i'm not sure how signature spell is denoted, but I'm curious which you run as yours.

Also, if your running crucible of worlds in the deck already, I could see taking advantage of more lands that sac themselves like Blast Zone , Buried Ruin , Crystal Vein , Emergence Zone , or Encroaching Wastes .

How about Chrome Mox , Mox Opal , Mox Diamond , Mana Vault , Mana Crypt and Sensei's Divining Top instead of the janky equipments? Also, I would probably run stuff like Mana Drain , Force of Will , Swan Song , Pact of Negation and the new Force of Negation in a mono blue combo deck like this (if money is not an issue).

You can also add Intuition and Reconstruction so you have an additional tutor to search for your artifact combo pieces. (Search for Reconstruction , Buried Ruin / Academy Ruins and the combo piece.) Good thing about these cards is that they are also useful on their own.

Tolaria West can be a useful tool to tutor for specific lands or your zero mana stuff (especially usefull if you add pact of negation).
