Kjartan on Door to Winning

5 days ago


I think you could improve a lot of aspects of this list without raising the price too much.

First of all, there are much more better mana rocks for what you're trying to achieve, I'd say.

Coalition Relic is the obvious one, but it is somewhat expensive. But honestly, just even Darksteel Ingot would be a slight improvement over for example Manalith. But there are plenty of options there. I would perhaps like to see Pentad Prism as it makes your win-con a full turn faster potentially. Or perhaps even better Rattleclaw Mystic. That card seems like a very good fit here.

Secondly, your mana base is abysmal. You're trying to go off like this with only Forests and a few scattered multi-lands? Seems unlikely. (What are you even playing Evolving Wilds for if you're only running forests?)

I'd remove 4 forests for 1 of each other basic land, at the very least.

I also have a few issues with you running Sylvan Scrying. It's a tool-box card, but it doesn't really help you get to your win-con. You have plenty of lands so you'll never be in shortage. Rampant Growth would be far, far better I'd say.

Also, my final point is that you're pretty slow... Which is fine, but slow decks need to be able to slow the game down to a pace where they can get to their win-con without getting killed on turn 4.

A card like Sylvan Caryatid can help you both ramp and block, (but that card is expensive so I understand if you're not getting it.)

Thragtusk is another tool to help you get there and it is currently very cheap. (Especially compared to its high power level)

Gl with it all.

Maybe a Swamp and/or Island (for 1 or 2 Karn's Bastion)? That way you still have enough basics to make Fabled Passage useful and still have the green sources to make the deck playable. Black is the least used color in this list followed by blue so I would cut a Swamp first then an Island if you want two, but don't cut any Forest for any more because then Fabled Passage wouldn't work as well with more basics than passages. I don't think that playing at least 1 Karn's Bastion would hurt because of the mana fixing from the Paradise Druid and Gilded Goose, and playing 2 probably wouldn't hurt too much either for the same reason. However, playing with 4 basics and 4 Fabled Passage doesn't look well, so you could also try cutting 1 Fabled Passage for another Temple of Malady to balance it out a little. End result of -1 Swamp, -1 Island for +2 Karn's Bastion, and -1 Fabled Passage, +1 Temple of Malady if you think having 4 basics and 4 Fabled Passage would too much of an issue.

Kogarashi on Blanchwood Armor - What counts ...

You count lands that specifically have the Forest type on the type line. This would not only include the Forest basic lands, but also Snow-Covered Forest, dual lands like Bayou, Ravnica duals like Breeding Pool, Zendikar duals like Canopy Vista, etc.

If you search the Gatherer or Scryfall for anything with "Forest" on the type line, you'll find everything that qualifies for Blanchwood Armor. Here's a link to the search on Scryfall:

All cards with "Forest" on the type line (Scryfall search)

You'll notice that Sunpetal Grove and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood don't have "Forest" on the type line. They don't count.

Also, one card on that search is a Land Creature (Dryad Arbor), but it still has the Forest subtype and thus still counts.

Riveyn on Blanchwood Armor - What counts ...

I'm a n00b, so I'm still having trouble understanding MTG slang (like: sweaty deck, etc.) and card rules.

For Blanchwood Armor, do I count only the cards named Forest or can I count cards that provide green mana, like Sunpetal Grove and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood?

Thank you Femme_Fatale, much appreciated

Since we're looking at basic land variants I might as well also note that many of the Guild Kit basics seem to be using images of the foil promo versions (which should probably be variants under 000) instead of the actual printings found in the guildkit


Boros plains (GK1) on Tappedout:


Matches the Ravnica Weekend Boros Plains:


As opposed to the Actual Guild Kit Boros Plains:


The Golgari Forest, however, appears to be correct:


I'd be happy to submit these fixes myself, and likely will at some point in the near future, but figured I'd mention them as the highest resolution I have access to is scryfall, and I know you've mentioned you put a premium on high-res scans

Epicurus on Card creation challenge

Asder holy crap, that's good. That would be in every green stompy deck I ever made.

First turn, Forest, Llanowar Elves. 2nd turn, forest, Peema Growth Mage. 3rd turn, forest, Predator's Strike, Giant Growth, Berserk, attack, win.


Strength of Dominance

Enchantment - Aura

Enchanted creature gets +X/+1, where X is the enchanted creature's CMC. If X is 5 or greater, it also gains trample.

Make a planeswalker that cares about enchantments.

Now looks like ZendikariWol beat me to it. So do that challenge.
