Ghost Quarter Discussion

wallisface on Flicker Reality Acid

The other potential fit is Leonin Arbiter, because you’re doing almost no fetching, and there’s a good chance it messes up whatever expensive fetch-stuff the opponent might be doing (plus makes Path much stronger!). But that comes with the downside of you probably having to drop your own fetch-cards to include it, as well as really needing to also squeeze in Ghost Quarter to get the best use out of it (which might be tricky?)

Ravnica also has the Ghost Quarter, and Zendikar has occasional cards like Ruin Ghost that appear to be spirits of the dead. There's also a random Pteron Ghost from Mirrodin.

seshiro_of_the_orochi That's what I'm saying. People should just talk before the game to set expectations instead of crying and hiding behind some "social contract." Because that is what I run into when people bring it up in the wild. Just a list of like 20 things they refuse to play against. Ever.

Like in one game I was playing we had set expectations around power level 6 or so. One of the guys had a Lost Vale and I blew it up with a Ghost Quarter. He was pretty far ahead of the rest of the table but complained about land destruction being against the spirit of the format. He stormed off saying he'd never play with me again. Which is fine with me but a little crazy too. The number of folks who refuse to even sit down at the mention of combo is crazy too. When I offer up a different deck that doesn't combo about half still refuse to play.

Not to say I don't get games in still. I do get a good number of them and most people I play against are decent sorts.

DawnsRayofLight on ULTRA REACTIVE MONO BLACK

I've been playing monoblack in EDH for a while! So, I have some advice I can offer that I hope will help you out!

Land base: 35 should be enough, consider some utility lands: Maze of Ith Cabal Coffers (get it while it is cheap!) maybe some land destruction like Field of Ruin, Wasteland, Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, etc. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Temple of the False God Cabal Stronghold Castle Locthwain Rogue's Passage

Equipment to boost your general:

Sword of War and Peace, life gain and protection Sword of Light and Shadow, recursion and protection Sword of Hearth and Home, protection, blink your ETB kill a guy creatures, ramp Sword of Feast and Famine, expensive, but super good Lashwrithe: ouch Vorpal Sword: haha double ouch Blackblade Reforged Sword of Truth and Justice Sword of the Animist

I might try to add a few more win cons in your creature base

Vilis, Broker of Blood, draw and beat stick Razaketh, the Foulblooded, search and beat stick K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth ramp and can get big Archon of Cruelty been debating adding it to chainer

Ramp and utility suggestions

Bolas's Citadel: super good but can be rough if you aren't gaining a lot of life Caged Sun: super good ramp and works when your opponents tap Skyclave Relic: better than darksteel ingot Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools: good for draw and blockers Grief: hand control Thought-Knot Seer: hand control Ob Nixilis Reignited: stayed in my chainer deck for a while until Tevesh came along

Grim Tutor and Mastermind's Acquisition over diabolic tutor (depends on you play group if they allow a "wish board," some don't, I run acquisition but may pick up a grim tutor for groups not okay with it)

I might lose some of the instant speed removal for:

Hero's Downfall: which you are running Deadly Rollick Eat to Extinction Vraska's Contempt

Some general removal as monoblack suffers from inability to handle certain types like enchant and artifact:

Karn Liberated Ugin, the Ineffable Steel Hellkite Nevinyrral's Disk

Suggested drops:

Tattered Mummy: Not that good, more consistent ways of grinding out damage Skyclave Shade: Bloodghast is better 1x Skeletal Grimace: I get the point, but there are better cards 1x Underworld Dreams: I am iffy on this one, Painful Quandary and Polluted Bonds may be better or good additions to complement it. The entire instant pool save hero's downfall and malicious affliction, there are better killspells Expedition Map: really only useful for setting up tron or land combos Liliana, Waker of the Dead: Liliana Vess works better

The True Meaning of Death and Taxes: this is my chainer death and taxes reanimator list, check it out for suggestions, I have a lot of cards in the maybeboard I have considered and even used at one point that may spark some ideas.

I agree with hungry that Field of Ruin is generally better than Ghost Quarter because, even though it's more mana intensive, it forces your opp to search while also giving the crabs a landfall trigger. Even if your opponent suspects an archive trap, they will always search for a basic land unless it's mid game and their deck is running low. And if it's midgame then Field is clearly better anyways.

About the sideboard, why are there B spells ( Bloodchief's Thirst , Crypt Incursion , Fatal Push , Thoughtseize , Wishclaw Talisman ) when you have no B lands? It looks like you guys switched from a UB build to mono U with the addition of Demilich , Fractured Sanity , Counterspell , and Tasha's Hideous Laughter . Honestly, I think Drown in the Loch clearly outclasses both Spell Pierce and Counterspell mainboard. Vedalken Shackles doesn't look very useful either, and could be replaced with Push mainboard. If you update the sideboard to stay mono U, Profane Memento can sort of replace Crypt Incursion .

Nice!!! I have a similar deck that turns lands into artifacts. Its Inferno Titan's Jinxed Artifact Collection I like the turn 4 splinter you got going on. I'm wondering if blue could be splashed for Mindlock Orb and Crucible of Worlds with Field of Ruin or Ghost Quarter

Metroid_Hybrid on Getting back into Legacy

2 months ago

I used to play -Eldrazi Stompy in Legacy 3-5 years ago, before switching to EDH due the LGS where I had moved to having a large EDH community (pre-lockdowns). However, I'm currently in a position where I might be able to play some Legacy events in the near-future, and I want to update my deck accordingly. But I think it's worth briefly noting the developmental-chain that led to the current decklist that I own..

Ironically enough, this deck was originally based on a "budget" Vintage list from The Mana Source (watch it to have a chuckle over how much less the Reserve List cards used to be). My original list was extremely close to this, except invert the 1:4 ratio of Chalice of the Void / Null Rod , and I (originally) ran Simian Spirit Guide ..

Out of the entire decklist, it is the Manabase that has fluctuated the most. For starters, I immediately cut Ghost Quarter after the deck's "maiden journey" due to most decks in Legacy run enough basic lands to render GQ's utility virtually worthless.

This led to me experimenting with running 2-4x Mishra's Factory for about a year before eventually cutting them altogether.

During this time I also experimented with running 2-4x Eye of Ugin & Simian Spirit Guide , and 3x of both ultimately feels like the right amount.

I also bought my copies of City of Traitors one at a time over the course of several months, and it felt right once I got to 3..

Near the end of the period when I was playing this semi-regularly, I noticed that some games would be lost due to simple chump-blockers, so I decided to throw in a copy of Rogue's Passage . But this was immediately before competitive Legacy events dried up out of nowhere, and therefore haven't had the chance to live test any changes since...

Also the lack of basic lands made times when I would come across things like Path to Exile , Ghost Quarter , & Blood Moon especially awkward, so I threw in a basic Wastes for good measure..

Something else that I had noticed was that more & more lists were using Walking Ballista , which intrigued me because the deck needs more Removal, and I'm almost never happy to draw Dismember either. So I replaced 2x Endless One s with WB's..

Karakas seemed to also be in almost every competitive-level list ever, so I eventually decided to get one myself.

I think the most important consideration is Karn, the Great Creator . Not only is it a Restricted in Vintage power-level lock-piece, but turning the Sideboard into a toolbox is huge. Unfortunately, no two decklists seem to agree at all on what said toolbox should contain. Therefore I am at a loss.

The other, far more recent card that has found it's way onto my radar is Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth . This land generally serves the exact same purpose as Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , with the exception of the possibility of a pain-free Dismember , but can otherwise be paired with Elvish Spirit Guide & Cavern of Souls to spawn a -variant sometime in the near-future..

All forms of Delver & Miracles have always been an easy win. I usually don't even bother to Sideboard..

Burn & various Storm decks ultimately come down to if I can drop an early lock-piece or not.

The kind of decks that I've had the biggest problem with are Stoneforge Mystic decks and BUG variants, particularly Shardless Sultai. Generally because a lack of removal spells, and Dismember isn't always enough take out a Tarmogoyf ..

(But I also think it's worth mentioning that this was all when Deathrite Shaman was still legal)
