aenoch on Advantages for having lands deck

7 months ago

I play casual mtg with my friends and I wanna build a aggro Naya deck built around advantages for having lands on my battlefield, with cards like Zendikar Incarnate and Ground Assault. Landfall is a great keyword ability for this deck and I already saw every card with this effect, but I want to know more cards that would combine with this strategy.

Thanks austintayshus for your help with the recommendations. It makes sense to include a few ramp spells, but I looked at Nissa's Pilgrimage instead because of my forest heavy deck, and possibly getting another land into my hand with spell mastery. Ground Assault was a great add, I was missing a single target, effective kill spell. I was looking around and found Undergrowth Champion which seemed to make perfect sense in my deck, where I'm looking for a small creature thats hard to remove. Primeval Titan is fine with my friends (don't know why because it is so overpowered in this format). Again thanks austintayshus, you've made my deck a lot more competitive.

Hey, just a heads up, Primeval Titan is banned in commander, but if your play group is okay with it, keep it. There's a reason it's banned :).

As for suggestions, I'd recommend taking out Gruul Signet and replacing it with a land ramp spell like Rampant Growth or Cultivate . Lands are much safer than artifacts in EDH.

I would also replace some of your sorceries with more creatures so that you can use Mina and Denn's second ability a little more.

Lastly, I'd recommend the following cards:

Hope this helps! If you need some suggestions on what to cut let me know!

Bojuka Bog could be useful if your meta has a lot some graveyard recursion.

Vinelasher Kudzu could be fun?

Krosan Restorer and Khalni Heart Expedition and Exploration can help you ramp.

Ground Assault could be good spot removal for the deck?

Hope this helps!

Borderland Explorer (unless you have a reason to discard)

Domesticated Hydra (just a big body, you can do better)

Both Embodiments (put your lands at risk for removal spells and dont add too much power overall unless you have a full awakening synergy)

Tunneling Geopede (too small of an effect unless you have a way to truly abuse it)

Hammer of Purphoros (what aspect are you trying to abuse with it?)

Ground Assault (Try to find instant speed removal)

Lay of the Land (in two color deck, not really needed)

Font of Fertility (not great ramp, if you want something that could be played for 1 or 3, look for search for tomorrow)

Retreat to Kazandu (again, a very small effect, unless you want to run more fertilid effects [that is a cool synergy if you want to go that way])

Retreat to Valakut (just too small, need more widespread effects, especially at 3 mana)

Searing Blaze (doesnt hit too much and better to try unconditional kills)
