Life from the Loam

Sorcery

Return up to three target land cards from your graveyard to your hand.

Dredge 3 (If you would draw a card, instead you may put exactly three cards from the top of your library into your graveyard. If you do, return this card from your graveyard to your hand. Otherwise, draw a card.)

Realms Uncharted and Scapeshift are worth considering. Also, bounce lands might be fun (Gruul Turf, Boros Garrison, Selesnya Sanctuary). I'd replace the multiplayer lands with these.

Some more cards to consider:

Field of the Dead

Sylvan Safekeeper

Constant Mists

Titania, Protector of Argoth

NV_1980 - Life from the Loam is certainly something we've considered! The main issue is that milling Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is a risk when there is limited creature recursion. I think my friend Caeruleus is also keen to avoid cards which might start to takeover the deck and outshine its main gimmick (which dredge could certainly do), although I'm personally less worried about cards which are not themselves substitute win conditions. Definitely might experiment with it.

Curious as to why you didn't mainboard Life from the Loam as it seems to fit the rest of the deck so well.

I love the card in Mono Black Coffers, it could be nice here too but maybe you should have more way to use it rather than just activate Door to Nothingness. What if it gets countered or destroyed? Also you might need some way to tutor it.

Also you could use fetch lands or Life from the Loam to get full advantage of Roiling Regrowth and Harrow. Maybe Azusa, Lost but Seeking could help you ramp too.

I think that the deck is interesting but you are extremely reliant on Varolz. As it stands it looks like you either have to mull till you get him or just hope you can hold out until you draw him. And that doesn't even consider the issue of him being removed. I think the deck either needs a way to consistently find him, or more reasonably shifting some of the focus to cards that work well without Varloz, but better with him. Slippery Bogle is great when you put 13 counters on it, but terrible in all other cases.

I think the direction to go would be to add cards that like being in the grave and possibly +1/+1 counters. cards with dredge or undying are the first things off the top of my head. something like Life from the Loam can help keep land drops consistent and give you extra uses of Boseiju, Who Endures while also filling the grave with targets for varolz or other effects. a card like Kitchen Finks is an example of a card that would be good in all situations but gets better if you can put +1/+1 counters on it repeatedly. if you need to scavenge it it's still worth more than a boggle. cards like Persist or Unearth could also be used to fetch any of the targets you put into the grave.

This would make your deck less of an all in glass cannon combo build and closer to a mid-range deck with a combo finisher, but i think the consistency boost would give you better odds overall.

Nice deck list +1
I've built a similar deck BUG Scavenger using Birds of Paradise both as a ramp card to get Varolz in play earlier and also as an evasive threat thanks to flying.

I also like Lotleth Troll as my primary win-con since it already has trample and can be used to chump block/regenerate early on. It also gives you a discard outlet for Death's Shadow in hand.

I used to run Thought Scour to fill the yard, but I've really liked the addition of Life from the Loam and Otherworldly Gaze.

lhetrick13,

I told you Pyre of Heroes is super good in tribal decks! lol

AHHHHHHHHHH now I get why you like Nameless Inversion so much! I didn't even think about it being a "knigt card."

If you go down to 3 Haakon, Stromgald Scourge you'll have room for that single copy of Knight of the Reliquary, and you can go down to 2 Aether Vials and go up to 3 Pyre of Heroes wink wink

On a serious note, after seeing the way Pyre of Heroes performs, do you intend on keeping Fiend Artisan or maybe using its slots for Pyre of Heroes and finding two more somethings? maybe... Unearth? or... ya know... whatever floats the boat better.

The more you play this deck, I'm certain you will see more weight behind my recomendations. lol I really don't want people to waste 3 years figuring out their decks/sideboards. Even if I only cut off a year, conversations like this are always welcome.

Thank you for finding my Cleric Tempo deck.

GLHF!

P.S. 20 lands, Knight of the Reliquary, and Life from the Loam. Just saying... even one copy of each is stronk.
