Mr_Engineer on Lord Windgrace messing with your lands

1 month ago

Not a bad start! My one real recommendation is to try and focus the deck up a bit more. It seems to me that the deck is trying to go into a few different directions, I'm seeing 1) a landfall strategy, which is typical for most Lord Windgrace decks, 2) land destruction with Strip Mine, Wasteland, Tectonic Edge, Dust Bowl & Destructive Flow and 3)a little bit of artifact hate, Collector Ouphe & Damping Matrix. Personally, I think that's a little bit scattered and I'd recommend trying to focus it up a bit more. I'm personally not a fan of Amulet of Vigor in these decks. Windgrace builds typically are slower decks to begin with and I just think it's a wasted spot in the deck. It's definitely a powerful card though for sure. Also, I think you need more lands. I haven't seen a good and well functioning Lands Matter deck with less than 40 lands in it. On a similar note, being a landfall strategy, you need more ways to play multiple lands per turn. Cards like Oracle of Mul Daya and Azusa, Lost but Seeking are amazing..and expensive yes I know. Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is a recent printing that has the same effect for 3 mana.

All in all I think you have a good start to your Windgrace deck! My build I am constantly tinkering with and I'm at a good spot now where I like it. Take a look and maybe it'll give you some ideas for your own!

Epicurus on Klothys Hates Your Lands

jdwork I found a compromise!

I decided that dorks were not the way to go. However, I had, and still have, over 30 spells that kill land, and that's a few more than I need. So I enacted the following revisions:

Still don't know what I can do without to include Acidic Slime, but the creature removal part of it is certainly appealing. Maybe you or someone else has a suggestion for that.

Thanks again!

Might want Acidic Slime in there for targeted land destruction. Also Dust Bowl?? and maybe some mana dorks too. Looks fun!

Might not be competitive but it's a fun white good stuff list.

Rebuff the Wicked, Endless Atlas, Dust Bowl, Flagstones of Trokair might be worth a spot.

Sun Titan great synergy with peacekeeper.

The best upgrades to a land based deck are a fetch shock/triome/dual land-in-general-mana-base. Up your land count to a higher than normal amount, like 40 or more. A land based deck would work well by focusing around Field of the Dead. You can use Scapeshift for a ton of zombies out of nowhere. Crop Rotation does great as well. Assuming you have fetchlands, Titania, Protector of Argoth is very powerful. Ramunap Excavator goes well with fetches, too. As does Life from the Loam. Sylvan Safekeeper is a great card for a land deck as well. As an FYI, you can give opponent creatures shroud as well to mess with them trying to use equipment, auras, or spells (like Chandra's Ignition or Tainted Strike). Other good lands to sacrifice are the horizon lands, Waterlogged Grove, and Strip Mine or Dust Bowl.

I assume you already have the landfall creatures Roil Elemental and Avenger of Zendikar. But some other cards that work well with a land based ramp deck are X spells like Torment of Hailfire and Finale of Devastation.

Some later upgrades are the good old Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers pair.

Gross deck! Love land destruction.

Maybe you could add Cryptolith Rite to turn all your creatures into dorks? If you’re short on your own lands.

Terravore would be kinda cool. As would Dingus Egg and Boil could do big things depending on the table, also Kudzu would be really funny.

I’d run these as all quite cheap, (if you can pick a championship deck copy of dust bowl)

Since you’re running Zuzo it might be worth having more rocks too,

Happy brewing, this deck looks a lot of fun :)
