ReddRhino on Mina and Denn, Land Cultivation and Devastation

1 week ago

Lands to consider: Terramorphic Expanse , Myriad Landscape , Blighted Woodland , Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle , Ghost Quarter and/or Strip Mine (use them to create small combos), Thespian's Stage , Mountain Valley , Ghost Town , Jund Panorama , Naya Panorama , Ash Barrens , Wasteland , Drownyard Temple , Lotus Field , Cryptic Caves (a nice draw engine), Warped Landscape , Sunscorched Desert (repeatable damage), Command Beacon (nice way to avoid commander tax)...there's more, but you get the idea. Most of these produce some kind of mana so you won't be without it. You just need to keep the cycle of dropping lands going.

Suggestions:

Remove:

1x Tangle Wire

1x Bolt Bend Is this ever reduced for your commander?

1x Changeling Berserker

1x Drakuseth, Maw of Flames

1x Taurean Mauler It's okay but sort of unnecessary. Can have an artifact dwarf instead.

1x Torbran, Thane of Red Fell Useless in your deck, replace with a 1 mana dwarf.

1x By Force

1x Shattering Spree

1x Wheel of Misfortune Really unreliable, especially if all 4 players still playing.

1x Akroma's Memorial You shouldn't win by combat.

1x Illusionist's Bracers One use of commander should be more than enough to win.

1x Dwarven Thaumaturgist His effect is irrelevent.

1x Mycosynth Lattice Mana fixing for opponents, how generous.

1x Rings of Brighthearth see Illusionist's Bracers above

Add:

1x Clock of Omens Primary wincon, and at instant speed.

1x Dwarven Grunt 1 mana dwarves

1x Dwarven Scorcher 1 mana dwarves

1x Dwarven Trader 1 mana dwarves

1x Enslaved Dwarf 1 mana dwarves

1x Liberated Dwarf 1 mana dwarves

1x Proteus Machine Artifact dwarf, slotted for consistency. Unnecessary really, can be replaced with whatever.

1x Feldon of the Third Path Can create an artifact dwarf or maybe pull out a dragon that was discarded/played if game went too long.

1x Dwarven Recruiter Can grab us an artifact dwarf, or whatever deemed necessary. Great with Jeska's Will .

1x Possessed Portal Use if winning and clock of omens has been dealt with or you don't have an artifact dwarf.

1x Daretti, Scrap Savant Good for rummaging or returning an artifact, since you always have a treasure in play. Can be replaced with good card draw.

1x Mystic Forge 1/4 of deck is artifacts. Can also fix dead draws to a certain extent. Can be replaced with good card draw.

1x Herald's Horn Call dwarves every time. Can be replaced with good card draw.

1x Final Fortune Can win out of nowhere. Use only if you are certain you can win. Be careful, highly recommended only if opponents appear tapped out.

Other worthy mentions I don't feel like figuring out how to slot in right now:

Vanquisher's Banner Great draw, and a buff. You can play like half your deck Dwarven Recruiter .

Outpost Siege Solid red card draw.

Commune with Lava Playable red card advantage.

Maze of Ith Use this as a spell slot, not a land slot. Can untap your own dwarves, or be used defensively.

Shatterskull Smashing  Flip Removal or land.

Scrying Sheets all your lands are snow for whatever reason, so could be okay if you have nothing else to cast in a turn.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle with all these mountains, why not?

Command Beacon In case people kill your 1 toughness commander too many times.

Darksteel Citadel More artifacts. ONLY PUT IF you don't have color problems.

Flamekin Village Not sure if haste is important enough, but something to consider.

Hanweir Battlements  Flip More haste.

Inventors' Fair gives you health, but more importantly can tutor an artifact.

Madblind Mountain If you end up with a lot of top deck shenanigans.

Labyrinth of Skophos If you're being attacked.

Kher Keep Chump blockers.

Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep Might help seem more intimidating early game?

Sequestered Stash Can return an artifact to your DECK, and then commander can grab it.

Sea Gate Wreckage If you run out of cards and have colorless mana sources.

Quicksand Can dissuade attackers

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Big mana

Myriad Landscape Ramp

Mouth of Ronom If you still have too many snow lands.

Sup lobsternips!

As a baseline, you'll need to add lands, which I'm sure you know. Since you're making Treasure and Gold tokens in this deck you'd probably be good with roughly 34-36 lands, leaning more to the most mana color you'll need, say like a 25/25/50 split if thats what you're going for.

- We'll cover your cards to include by type, so lets start with creatures. I like the Angels, Demons, and Dragons subtheme, if you were considering it I'd try and include Kaalia of the Vast if you can get your hands on one, otherwise just slim down on the tribal stuff, reaching too far into each different theme could result in inconsistencies and clunky play. I've been there, it sucks a lot. (Unfortunately, you can't run Shalai, Voice of Plenty since she has a Selesnya color identity)

-When it comes to your Dragons, I think you hit the nail on the head, nothing I would really change or take out. Allows for Magda, Brazen Outlaw to have a decent outlet if you don't want an artifact.

-Finally, the other things you've got going. Dockside should just be an auto-include, albeit a heavy price tag, but if you can get one you should definitely include it.

  • Dark Impostor , while mana intensive is still a decent mana sink that can function effectively as targeted removal. Definitely keep your edict creatures, they are super useful and trigger Negan, and thats what you want.

  • Starnheim Aspirant is useful if you go super heavy into the Angel theme, but if you skimp on the Angel theme this could very often be a dead card.

  • Storm-Kiln Artist , I like this a lot for this deck, can be a beater, and generates value.

  • Vault Robber , seems bad, and bad to do. Synergizes with Magda and makes Treasure tokens, but thats really it... PLUS it requires you to have a creature in YOUR grave. I'd cut this, but if you have a reason to play it I'm not seeing immediately play it in your deck.

  • Viscera Seer , good card, good sac outlet, not much else to say.

  • Creatures I'd include based on what I've seen: Solemn Simulacrum , Burnished Hart and Mayhem Devil . Some good ramp and a decent damage dealer if you'd like to play a cheap one. Plus the Devil is great at just 3 mana.

First thing I wanna point out is the abundance of them, its good, but its quite a few. I like the variety of them though, from token generation to mana value, all of them are GOOD in a sense.

  • Angelic Renewal is basically a one time effect. While good, there are better recursion spells out there, but this one does fit the Angel theme so thats really cool. :D

  • Land Tax : Definitely play this if you want more inclusions in your deck and want to play less lands, but don't forget to have a focus on more basic lands for the landbase.
  • Luminarch Ascension is subject to removal by other players, and somewhat makes you a target, but with Divine Visitation and your non-Treasure generators make this super useful.
  • Aside from that, I think that's a decent spread of enchantments. Nothing to add really, love the inclusion of the Sagas and Revel in Riches .

    I'm sure you'll add more later, but here are some I'd DEFINITELY include:

  • The three signets for your colors, Arcane Signet as well.

  • Goldvein Pick : hidden tRAESurES!!!
  • Inspiring Statuary for a low mana investment, you can effectively keep your Treasures around, or use your Gold tokens twice(tap it for colorless, then sac it for colored mana).
  • Panharmonicon to double up on edict effects.

  • Not much in this category outside of removal or token generation.

  • Wouldn't run Secure the Wastes strictly because it doesn't put Humans into play, play the sorcery option Martial Coup instead if you want a token creator with some OOMPH.

  • I'd recommend more removal, but with everything else considered I think you're pretty much good here. Really like the Crackling Doom and Vona's Hunger inclusions.

    OOOOkay, lots to look at here.

  • Mortuary Mire : Get that creature back in play!
  • High Market : Useful when Dictate of Erebos is in play.
  • Sanctum of Eternity / Command Beacon : You never know when you might need to use them. Negan can get expensive real fast.
  • That basically does it for my brief review, hope I was of some help!

    Jack32226 on Rot and Ruin (Muldrotha EDH)

    Last_Laugh: I recently bought myself a Command Beacon in case I do decide to run it at some point. For the time being though, I'm not including it. I almost never have to cast Muldrotha more than twice with this deck, so Beacon has little impact. Fortunately, Muldrotha is not required for many of the deck's engines, she is mostly needed only for some of the repeatable removal. With efficient use of this removal the first time, you can hold out on casting Muldrotha and focus on building up your land count. And once this deck has enough lands out, it usually wins very quickly. Because of that I actually prefer just having more consistent mana fixing in my mana base.

    Command Beacon is cheap currently. I'd pick one up my man. Never pay more than 6 for Muldrotha again...

    Absolumx on Muldrotha Control

    Hello , i see that you are missing a lot of protection for Muldrotha and have a lot of ramp spell that will not be useful in your graveyard later on. Here some suggestions for you if you want to explore other avenue.

    Protection: Command Beacon - It will ensure you can always cast muldrotha for cheap. Bojuka Bog - very important to interact with your opponent graveyards, if not needed cycle it and use it later if needed.

    Lightning Greaves For me its a no brainer especially how much muldrotha cost to cast we need to help him..or her staying on the board.

    Spore Frog is just amazing if you are in a playgroup that go to combat a lot your just dont care sac spore frog everytime and recast it on your next turn for a huge shield... if you playgroup dont use combat a lot leave it out.

    Elephant Grass Is also very good to keep you safe while you are building up your board. Dont want to pay the cumulative upkeep, sac it and replay it again :)

    Glen Elendra Archmage is also going to disturbed your opponent plans when its on the board and I pair her with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed so she always come back without me having to recast her, and Mikaeus is just awesome in this deck.

    Im Testing and trying Lilting Refrain for counter spell which seemed a good deterrent like Glen Elendra and it can be reutilized.

    Ramp You are using a lot of sorceries for this category, I was doing the same before and felt that these card had no value on the long run.

    I now use a different approach on ramp. I use milling and I play cards like Ramunap Excavator , Dryad of the Ilysian Grove , Springbloom Druid (should replace cultivate), my favorite is World Shaper (instead of your splendid reclamation) and sac it for massive boost, same for The Mending of Dominaria it just feed your grave and have a massive outcome + they can be replayed later by your cmdr.

    I would play 1 or 2 drop mana dorks over ramping sorceries for sure. The only sorcery I really suggest is Life from the Loam so good to feed your graveyard or get your land back if needed.

    Self mill: Jace, Memory Adept will do better than Beleren , pair this with Syr Konrad, the Grim and other mill option ... let me know in your reply if you would like this avenue a have a few good cards that can help.

    Tutor: You also want to replace your Beseech the Queen for Gravebreaker Lamia or Sidisi, Undead Vizier same thing it does the same and can be replayed over and over.

    Card Draw: I would replace Lifecrafter's Bestiary for Secrets of the Dead which will make you draw like crazy when you cast back stuff from your grave.

    Ohter: Fleshbag Marauder is a good effect, but you can have more versatile and mana efficient creatures which are also cheap: Demon's Disciple and Plaguecrafter both are an auto include when repeated over and over they are very nasty.

    Hostage Taker is very very fun .

    Steal Enchantment is a very good 2 mana value card which will make you live the dream of having a Smothering Tithe , Rhystic Study or any other broken enchantments.

    I can go on an on on card that will benefit your deck , what I would say check to replace your instant and sorceries with permanents that will benefit you during the entire game.

    Let me know what you think and what you will change I can then help you tweaking a few more things.

    I'm curious if you've considered running Command Beacon for tatyova, since you rely on her so much. Having a reliable way to keep casting cost down could help you combo off easier in the case she gets removed. By the way I love the hurricane inclusion, though I usually try to tie the game with it lol
