Dead of Winter Discussion

Cut the consult plan and add cards like mentioned above and stuff like Aria of Flame so its more of a tempo style deck. Cards that get value from cantrips/removal or just value spells. Bonus points if you can go snow mana with Skred, Dead of Winter, Back to Basics and what ever else cares for snow basics.

Running all my swamps as snow-swamps and using Dead of Winter as a second Toxic Deluge has served me well.

I appreciate the suggestions. So far Flooremoji the Ohran Viper has been stuck in my hand. It’s 3cmc competes with Dead of Winter, Glacial Revelation, and Blood Moon. I am debating replacing them with Icehide Golem or Boreal Druid.

I suggest having a bit more boardwipes, since your commander doesn't mind having a lot of creatures in your graveyard, as much as other commanders. The following are good options:

Black Sun's Zenith is another Dead of Winter and Toxic Deluge type of removal, but can be reused when tutored or when drawn again.

Damnation is the most iconic black mass removal.

Gaze of Granite can boardwipe, except your possible key pieces on your board, even artifacts, enchantments and planeswalkers, although not as easy to cast as Toxic Deluge.

@Conaxi4783 - Thanks! it took about 4 hours just finish the description and about 2-3 days to finish the initial decklist.. Reanimate is a bit expensive, but if I have more budget, I'm definitely adding that..

@vediusmaps - True, but i only have 1 for my Willowmaker deck.. I might add it in the future.. I only chose Back to Nature and Dead of Winter for versatility of removals.. Thanks for the suggestion though..

@hamdeadly - i think Diabolic Intent and Eldritch Evolution is counterintuitive imo, since i don't want to sacrifice possible fodder for Jarad, to find a creature in my library.. Also since my graveyard is the zone where i would most likely get the best odds of finding a solution to the current situation.. Plus i have other tutors which can add creatures to my yard such as Jarad's Orders and Final Parting.. Demonic Tutor is good, but i currently lack the budget to buy one.. I'll definitely add that though in the future.. Thanks for the suggestions!

Mobilized District definitely warrants consideration. There is production from the lands in Castle Ardenvale. Flagstones is synergistic with Board the Weatherlight. I could probably experiment with a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. I don’t know how much I care for the snow land idea. There’s a pretty wide spread of lands even for a mono-colored list. Dead of Winter is one more piece of aggro hate amongst a ton already present. The mana would need to be reworked as well.

Consider some man-lands instead of the full set of flagstones. Some options are:

Mobilized District and Mutavault

If you switch the plains for snow-covered plains you could also have:

Frostwalk Bastion and Scrying Sheets

Additionaly, if you splash black with the snow-lands you get access to Dead of Winter instead of just Bitterblossom.

Did you find Dead of Winter consistent enough?
