Geier Reach Sanitarium Discussion

Apollo_Paladin on Ultra-Budget Speed Dredge (2x 5-Card "Gold Hands")

3 weeks ago

Hey thanks for the up-vote and the comment! I'd considered using ETB discard effects, and looking at Rotting Rats that may find a way into the build the next time I sit down to run "test tweaks" on it.

The Geier Reach Sanitarium isn't a bad call either since it's only a 2-mana activation and doesn't come into play tapped; one thing this deck certainly lacks is any form of card draw. I'm aware of a few lands which can help correct this, but I don't want to throw off "Gold Hand" (or near-miss) draws too much by including lots of "enters tapped" lands, which a lot of the other draw-lands seem to be.

I'm also trying to keep the overall cost of this deck to a minimum as a kind of concept, so I appreciate you recommending similar budget-range cards at least! Some of these have definitely made my list to try if/when I attempt a rebuild. Great suggestions!

Really cool deck list! I'm liking where this is going!

What's the reasoning behind running Geier Reach Sanitarium? I get that it's tutorable with Sisay and provides card advantage with Notion Thief but other than that, I'm not seeing the benefits. Maybe card selection in very grindy games but you provide you opponents with the same bonus for free.

Also lands like Geier Reach Sanitarium and Mikokoro, Center of the Sea are good with Smithering tithe since you can get the chance to net 3 treasure tokens off your opponents.

Bonders' Enclave is also a new land coming out in Ikoria that could be useful for card draw.

This is my thought, but I don't think Knight of Grace and Knight of Malice would work. They don't technically have hexproof.

If you want useful lands, Geier Reach Sanitarium can discard. Also, Rogue's Passage can give you a commander damage win.

Archangel of Thune is a great wincon, and has some alphabet soup too. She works even better if you give her first strike, or if you give another creature first strike and lifelink, that way you get 2 triggers from her ability (all lifelink abilities gain life at the same time unless damage is done separately).

With a deck like this, you are putting a lot of value into individual creatures. The one thing that will absolutely destroy you is board wipes. You'll need a way to bounce back. That can either be with reanimation or with plain old card advantage. Nikara, Lair Scavenger will help with that.

Cut the duplicates

If you can afford it, exchange Ghost Quarter vs Wasteland and Cabal Pit vs Ancient Tomb (or for Bojuka Bog)

Other good (utility) lands which are always good:

"Slow Lands" which sadly enter the battlefield tapped but, (in my opinion) are worth that downside:

I can also highly recommend visiting as a source of inspiration.

It would really appreciate it if you would visit some of my decks and leave comment there

Desolate Lighthouse can act as another Geier Reach Sanitarium and could be a good include for the list. Firestorm is also very similar to Nahiri's Wrath and could be good for the deck.
