Karn's Bastion Discussion

VampDemigod on Land Interaction

The only things I can think of are Karn's Bastion combined with either Blast Zone or Hickory Woodlot/Saprazzan Skerry. These aren’t super combos, but this is what you get when you try to find land-only combos. The Vivid cycle would also work with the bastion but isn’t better than dual lands in a 2 color deck.

A quick note: These combos are not super useful. The first pays 5 to avoid paying 3 (counting the land tap as 1 mana), and the second...I just realized it doesn’t really work well in your deck. So both of them are really only useful if you need proliferate anyway.

Other than the above, the only combo I can think of is the Tron lands.

Caerwyn Should this be in the deck help forum? (Not trying to be rude OP, I’m just @ ing Caerwyn so he can move this if it’s needed). :)

Webweaver Changeling, Game-Trail Changeling, Changeling Titan, Chameleon Colossus and Woodland Changeling are all shaman AND snakes

Nature's Chosen and Instill Energy if you want more mana

Wolf-Skull Shaman, Reach of Branches

If you really want to do +1 counters you should get at least one Proliferate card. Not only do you get more counters on your creatures but you can put more counters on Orochi Hatchery and Angelheart Vial. Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Karn's Bastion etc.

Lanzo493 on Hydra Deck Suggestions... Infinite?

2 months ago

Sword of Feast and Famine or Bear Umbra paired with Relentless Assault let's you untap your Karn's Bastion an infinite number of times for infinite proliferate. But by that point, your opponent's are probably dead. The cards are also really pricey.

Basically any infinite mana combo will get you a nice hydra. But most infinite mana combos are hard to pull off unless the commander is part of the combo or you have several tutors. So I'd focus on just using cards with good value instead of trying to go infinite, and then you can also go infinite when the cards align.

For the forced combat theme you could go with Siren's Call

If you are going for turtling, you could look at Statecraft or Peacekeeper

If you have enough draw power, maybe Solitary Confinement or Island Sanctuary? Super well-protected but you have to skip your draw step and discard cards. Might be able to buy you a couple turns. Could combine it with Pitchstone Wall to keep that up longer.

Have you considered Darksteel Reactor for another "you win" option?

Some of your "you win" cards use counters. You could add some proliferate cards like Clockspinning or Karn's Bastion.

Next Duel Tournament in my city is next Sunday! , I hope it will happen given the Covid :(

I have a Muldrotha, the Gravetide deck here if you're interested to see an idea like yours made without white.. maybe get some ideas. I've gotten a few from your deck. Karn's Bastion is a decent land worth checking out for deck. Aetherborn Marauder is fun.

PirateCptAstera on Vraska, Horse Queen

3 months ago

possibly one year too late, but a couple of things i noticed in this deck:

  1. Is there a specific use for Windswept Heath and Wooded Foothills? You would be better off with Verdant Catacombs, Twilight Mire or Tainted Wood.

  2. And if your sole purpose is to get Vraska to Ult, I would consider using Doubling Season since Vraska would come in with double her loyalty counters. That way you could set up the combo of: have Doubling Season and either Evolution Sage or Karn's Bastion in play, bring out Vraska, Golgari Queen, play a land (if making use of the sage) and proliferate Vraska. Ult Vraska straight away giving your opponents less time to respond to her.
