Dark Depths

Dark Depths

Dark Depths enters the battlefield with ten ice counters on it.

: Remove an ice counter from Dark Depths.

When Dark Depths has no ice counters on it, sacrifice it. If you do, create Marit Lage, a legendary 20/20 black Avatar creature token with flying and indestructible.

Dark Depths Discussion

McToters on Winter is coming Jorn Snow

2 weeks ago

So I've freshened up my memory on some snow permanents, and I've taken a deeper look at your creature list in particular. I think you can take out Burnished Hart, Rootweaver Druid, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Wolfbriar Elemental, Yavimaya Elder and replace with the following:

Centaur Omenreader cut CMCs instead of ramp

Abominable Treefolk

Berg Strider fits tap theme

Boreal Druid mana dork

Draugr Necromancer

I suggest taking out those other five creatures because I count 8 ramp spells under sorcery and I think those all look great!

Then I'd take out one of your lands for Dark Depths, which is also huge flavor.

And lastly, I do not see any boardwipes besides Torment of Hailfire so Blood on the Snow seems pretty great here!

Sorry if that's a lot to throw on. Your card draw, counters, mana curve and control all seem excellEnt. You know your deck better than I do though so maybe some of my suggestions aren't good. Let me know!

As you run Solemnity in the deck, did you consider running Dark Depths, as well? It definitely is another "dead" land not producing any mana like Maze of Ith but can be a massive beater. Probably not in the mindset of the deck to be a threat,

I should also add, don't be afraid to cut a few lands with Meren. If you have enough ramp creatures you'll always get way more mana than you need, because you can recur them each turn. I have only 35 mana-producing lands in my deck (I have 36 lands, but one is Dark Depths) and I always have more mana than I need.

I’ve been looking for some lesser known commanders and Temmet definitely is one of them. I like your deck! I’ll definitely take some inspiration from it when I build Temmet. A couple suggestions: I was planning to put Dark Depths and Solemnity in my deck.

Azeworai on Kura, the Boundless Sky [Lands]

2 months ago

Lands is always a magnificent archetype, and it is one to which I may offer some insights.

The second deck I have ever constructed, remaining my favourite to this day is Hazezon Tamar lands matter. After six years of tinkering, I can say with confidence that I know the strategy quite well.

As for The Boundless Sky, she opens up some splendid possibilities.

Given Green's affinity for finding specific lands, you have the ability to run combos with specific cards and lands.

Let us begin with the creative cards.

Lifeline looks to be terrifying with Kura, for she will return to play at end of turn if she dies. If you have a sacrifice effect at instant speed, or even just an untapped High Market, this can make a monstrosity whenever it pleases.

One of the best cards in my deck is Finale of Promise. It finds powerful pieces such as Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage, or Field of the Dead and Gaea's Cradle. Fun!

Due to Field of the Dead, you should split your basic to be both snow and nonsnow. This will offer more names for the idoneous progenitor of zombies.

For generic inclusions I enjoy, Petrified Field returns strong utility sources, Ulvenwald Hydra is a large behemoth which works with Life's Legacy effects whilst tutoring out a Gaea's Cradle.

For ramp, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Rampant Growth, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Sakura-Tribe Elder, and Skyshroud Claim are some of the best cards of acceleration in the format, thereat being on-theme as averse to Basalt Monolith.

As much as it may not seem, interaction is rather important. Beast Within hits everything and Primal Command is lovely utility. Scavenger Grounds is a helpful piece of hate to find in dire circumstances.

Bounce lands can make for disturbing lines of play, such as tutoring with Crop Rotation for a Boros Garrison, thereupon returning a Gaea's Cradle to hand, playing it and tapping it for even more mana. For your strategy, I recommend Guildless Commons.

Thence is all I have time to type, but Kura looks a scourge in the command zone.

If you care to peer upon my own masterpiece in the lands archetype, you may find it here:

Caleb, what do you think about these changes?

I think these are the best changes:

Wrenn and Six > Birds of Paradise

Nature's Lore > Arcane Signet

Kodama's Reach > Wheel of Fortune

Birds of Paradise never fit a lands matter deck. Just one man's opinion but Arcane Signet doesn't belong in a landfall deck. I don't like Wheel of Fortune when it can not be abused, ala Snakes or if you have a Notion Thief in play. You are paying three mana to refill everyone hands.

I would love to find a spot for Consecrated Sphinx.

Can we talk about your lands? You are playing seven lands that tap for colorless and one, Dark Depths that does not tap for mana. There are also eleven basics in this deck. The only spells in your deck that put basic lands into play are Cultivate and Sakura-Tribe Elder. I would cut Ghost Quarter and three basics for City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Exotic Orchard, Breeding Pool at a minimum. A reasonable case could be made to cut two more basics for Temple Garden, and Sacred Foundry.

I know Coalition Relic solves all your mana base issues but you have no way to tutor for artifacts.

I would probably find a place for Yavimaya Hollow. I play it in snakes.

You stated you wanted more counterspells. I assume this being a Calab Holyt deck that means the addition of Swan Song at a minimum. Orginally, I looked at areas where you had a glut of cards that did the same thing. Creatures that let you play additional lands or lands off the top of your library was one area. The other was cards that allowed you to play lands or recur lands from your graveyard. In the end, I just couldn't justify cutting any of the cards in either of there areas without more testing.

Elvish Reclaimer was the card I settled on to be the cut. Why? This card was extensively tested and cut from another landfall trigger deck, the primer Tappedout list for Omnath, Locus of Rage. The reason was the card was too slow.

I hope this generates discussion between us on this deck. You had to be very happy with the results from your first play session.

le podria Field of the Dead cambiando una basica o Cinder Glade por q no tiene tantas basicas.

si le ponemos Vesuva podriai ponerle tmb Dark Depths+ otra pa copiar Thespian's Stage, en volada pa hacer mas mana rapido ponerle tierras locus.

The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale en volada pa mantener al resto mas piola.

Ash Barrens, Crop Rotation, Expedition Map, Elvish Reclaimer, Evolution Charm, Realms Uncharted son todos buenos pa el enfoque en tierras y 4 son buenos pa buscar las de arriba.

Druid Class, Khalni Heart Expedition,, Azusa's Many Journeys  Flip, Rites of Flourishing, Summer Bloom, cualquiera es buena pa esto.

ponerle otra copia del kruphix podria estar weno Augur of Autumn/Wayward Swordtooth

Scute Swarm hmm es muy weno jajaja,Tireless Provisioner, Veteran Explorer en volada son buenos tmb. Splendid Reclamation+ScapeshiftThe Mending of Dominaria, dependiendo q tanrapido lo queri hacer.

Dosan the Falling Leaf/Vexing Shusher/City of Solitude/Defense Grid pa tener un poco de defensa contra counters y otras cosas.

en mi opinion sacaria: Glint-Horn Buccaneer (mas q nada por q no me gusta mucho noma),Living Twister, sacaria 1 o 2 de cualquiera de los encantamientos q cuestan 5/6, Bag of Holding en volada tmb, Dragon Mage, Krosan Grip y/o java

podrias poner cartas con cycling o retrace, tmb Rites of Spring esta wena pa ponerla y Treasure Map  Flip le puede dar un poco de mas seleccion de cartas. hmmm le dejaria igual Mulch y añadiria Winding Way por lo mismo.
