Dosan the Falling Leaf Discussion

0rc on Competitive Yisan

Cool. Have you played it much? How does it fare against mono blue control, stax control, and pillow fort?

I wonder if there is a better alternative to Exploration, considering you are running light on lands and do not have particularly great card draw. I run it in a few cEDH decks but am Usually disappointed in the outcome.

Maybe something along the lines of One with Nature if you can get a creature through. Even something like Manabond may be better considering that it ramps harder earlier and you will be relying on your commander to tutor cards anyways.

Also, how do you expect to achieve the massive acceleration afforded by Cradle and Nykthos with Damping Sphere in play?

You may consider abandoning that entirely.

On the topic of Cradle, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip is incredible in decks such as this one.

Since you run GSZ, you should run Dryad Arbor for a competitive edge.

Since you run predominantly forests, why not make them Snow-Covered Forest and run Extraplanar Lens to make the advantage asymmetrical.

Since you run Top and Mirri’s Guile, why not run at least a couple fetch lands if for nothing else but an occasional shuffle. I understand that Yisan should shuffle your library, but I can imagine many scenarios in which that won’t be an option and you will still need to search for answers.

You may want Dosan the Falling Leaf or Allosaurus Shepherd (both tutorable) or City of Solitude to prevent opponents from interacting with your Sabertooth finisher or Craterhoof.

Without that type of protection you are vulnerable to common interaction such as Force of Will , Stifle , or any of the split second spells.

I’m not worried about Veil of Summer—-I’d just hit it with another free counter or Dispel.

I think without proper protection, this deck would have a big problem with any mono-blue control (even on a $75 budget!)

Not trying to be harsh—-I really like the deck—-just trying to give you some insight about the weaknesses I perceive and how I’d exploit them if I were your opponent.

I hope this helps.

How do you feel about Destiny Spinner ? I feel like it would help protect some of your big plays. I think Sphinx of the Second Sun might be cool in here too if you think you could fit it. Another draw and untap is useful, plus you'd trigger your sagas twice a turn. The only downside I can see are cumulative upkeep cards like Elephant Grass and Mystic Remora .

I'd replace Mental Discipline with Compulsion . Compulsion is a straight upgrade in that it costs less and it can sac itself for a card too.

Getting into more expensive stuff, I feel like Squandered Resources would allow for some absolute bomb plays in here. City of Solitude and the much more affordable Dosan the Falling Leaf would protect you quite well, considering you only run two instants I don't think they would hold you back much at all.

As far as cuts go, I would look at Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted , Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage , and Arlinn, Voice of the Pack look/feel weak to me. I don't think they offer much to the deck and while Arlinn does make tokens it feels kind of meh compared to other walkers like Vraska.

Medomai's Prophecy seems pretty weak to me as well, maybe you have different experiences than I do but it feels really weak compared to other sagas. Having to name your next play could be risky too depending on what you have for options in your hand.

+1 from me, really cool take on Muldrotha!

Cool deck! You might like these: Chromatic Orrery, Hope of Ghirapur, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, Gilanra, Caller of Wirewood, Marwyn, the Nurturer, Sanctum of Fruitful Harvest, Seton, Krosan Protector, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro, Sakiko, Mother of Summer, Baru, Fist of Krosa, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Bonders' Enclave

You might consider cutting these: Three Visits (doesn't get Reki out faster, whereas Llanowar Elves does. It is cool that the land comes in untapped and is nice with things like Nissa and Vernal Bloom though. I suppose it depends on whether you prefer speed or late-game resilience), Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, Guardian Project (since 40% of your deck is legendary, Reki alone may be enough draw power), Abundance, Vivien's Arkbow, Elemental Bond, Dosan the Falling Leaf (nonbos with Yeva and could mess you up if you need to cast Heroic Intervention in response to a board wipe)

This is a pretty awesome list. I do have two ideas:

Thornbite Staff is a good way to untap Yurlok. And you can sometimes even equip it for free thanks to Yurlok being a shaman. Also, how about Dosan the Falling Leaf could be

I could add Price of Glorybut a few of my cards I have in the deck are aimed to stop counters with them not able to play spells on my turns with Conqueror's Flail City of Solitude and Dosan the Falling Leaf plus with cards that encourage tapping out. It won’t be a big issue for me with counters. Awakening would just reverse what I want people to do when playing their lands so not sure if I want that effect. I definitely think I need Exquisite Blood as I need some way to counter the amount of damage I will be taking as well from my effects. I might replace Victory Chimes as it is a cute effect but will just end up making people mad most of the time

for your Awakening+Power Surge+Dosan the Falling Leaf/City of Solitude combo if you add in Helix Pinnacle its an easy win for you since you'll be getting lots of mana every turn and then you wont have to suffer
