Is the Problem combat damage? If so, Maze of Ith, Glacial Crevasses, and General's Regalia, and Forcefield all work at stopping that. Otherwise, preemptive effects:

Blood Moon, Roiling Vortex (if they cast a colorless creature for free), Ruination, Ensnaring Bridge, and threaten effects.

Cards: Glacial Crevasses, Snow-Covered Mountain.

I've had my eye on possibly running Glacial Crevasses in my EDH decks for quite some time now as I feel it makes an excellent combat deterrent. By having this card on the field the whole table knows I can completely negate an attack thrown at me even when tapped out which can help keep combat-oriented decks from wanting to waste their combat step on me.

The problem is this card only works if I have Snow-Covered Mountains. If I have none Glacial Crevasses means nothing to my opponent, if I have one Snow-Covered Mountain my opponents might try to fish me into sacking it and if I have three Snow-Covered Mountains my opponents will likely not bother with me until the game reaches a 1-versus-1 state.

This card is easier to run in mono-red decks, but I want to put it in 3-color decks which means I don't want to flood my entire manabase with Snow-Covered Mountains especially if I'm not going to draw into Glacial Crevasses certain games.

Additionally would you count fetch-lands towards your Snow-Covered Mountain count, such as Arid Mesa , Ash Barrens , Bloodstained Mire , Prismatic Vista , Scalding Tarn and Wooded Foothills? (My 3-color red decks usually run all 6 of these fetches just to color fix with Ravnica shock lands if needed.)

Also how good would you evaluate Unstable Frontier as a utility land? If I'm running Snow-Covered Forests, Snow-Covered Islands, Snow-Covered Plains or Snow-Covered Swamps, I can use Unstable Frontier to turn any of them into a Snow-Covered Mountain and as a color fixing source if I have too many Snow-Covered Mountains, but I don't know if it would be better to just use another Snow-Covered Mountain over it instead.

Lastly, should I run cards like Alpine Meadow, Highland Forest, Sulfurous Mire and Volatile Fjord? I already run all the Modern fetch-lands that could tutor for lands such as these, so I could hit them very consistently, but I don't like the fact they're tap-lands. Given I run only three colored decks I can only ever fit any of two of them at a time. Would they be worth an inclusion?

Thank you for your insight.

My Windgrace deck has a snow-land sub theme for cards like Sunstone and Glacial Crevasses . Doing this in your deck would require swapping some of the random lands with snow basics, but I’ve never run into a problem with not having the needed color. The crevasse especially being good to protect Windgrace.

I’d probably swap out Wildfire for Jokulhaups . Same cmc, does a lot more though. Maybe throw in Obliterate and Death Cloud . All cards that keep Windgrace alive and well, while neutering everyone else. Epicenter and Impending Disaster are also good wipes in this deck.

Bonus points for running Possessed Portal . If the opponents don’t have a solution in hand, the game is over with that on the board.

Also a bit surprised you aren’t running Constant Mists in a deck that recurs and spits out lands so easily.

I feel this is a good time to bring up 2 of my favorite under the radar fog effects for cmdr.

You're welcome

I have a similar windgrace deck (love the cat bastard), but mine utilizes more snow-based lands in order to play cards like Glacial Crevasses (surprisingly good when your commander just reanimates the lands you sacrifice). Similarly, Sunstone works the same but with any snow land. Helps to keep Windgrace around a lot longer if people can't swing into him.

Glacial Crevasses can lock out decks that rely on combat damage for wins (see Craterhoof Behemoth). You can also put other cards that interact with snow-covered lands, like Skred.

Whirlwind_2100 Thank you so much! I'm really glad to hear that you're having fun with the deck!

The list that I have there is the list that I currently run. It has enough stax-y elements that I can usually keep myself safe without running so many that I don't get to play the deck anymore.

If you wanted to improve on the deck I'd cut the planeswalker "package" ( Ugin, the Ineffable , Chandra, Flamecaller , The Chain Veil , and maybe even Karn Liberated ; I'd definitely keep Ugin, the Spirit Dragon though).

Coveted Jewel would also be a good cut to consider but I've been a big fan and it's become a pet card of mine.

The land count might also be 1 or 2 too high, but I've been pretty happy with it at 36. If you cut the planeswalker package you could probably shave off a land and be just fine due to their high CMC and inability to cheat them out.

To make the deck a bit better, it all depends on what you feel like the deck is lacking and what direction you want to take it in for your meta! Stax ( Jokulhaups , Sphere of Resistance , Ward of Bones ); protection ( Crawlspace , Glacial Crevasses ); infinite mana sinks ( Goblin Cannon ); mana rocks ( Mox Diamond , Fellwar Stone , Everflowing Chalice ); or just generally good cards ( Treasure Nabber , Quicksmith Genius , Sculpting Steel , Extraplanar Lens ); are just a few of the options you can choose to make this deck work better for you and your meta.

Best of luck with the deck and, once again, I'm glad you're enjoying it!!

Solid build +1! A small change I would make is to run Snow-Covered Mountain so you can use Extraplanar Lens and Glacial Crevasses but that's just me. Also curious why you aren't running All Is Dust , Aftershock , Blasphemous Act , Chain Reaction , Mana Geyser and Inspiring Statuary .

I also use a mono-red deck, with a different commander, but it uses some cards that you might want to consider. Here's the link so you can take a look. From Their Ashes We Will Build (Jaya EDH)
