Lonely Sandbar Discussion

ASalesman on Unesh, Ultimate Guide (Tribal)

1 month ago

LONG TIME SINCE AN UPDATE, BUT HERE ARE SOME UPDATES:

  • Kozilek, Butcher of Truth replaced by Sphinx of the Second Sun . I recently realized that Kozilek can sometimes really hinder your strategy to deck yourself with. If you pull Thassa's Oracle and Kozilek in the same BFOF, it can be real sad sometimes. Sphinx of the second sun offers immediate value the turn you play it, has a lower CMC, AND it is a sphinx. The only downside is if you are trying to win with Nexus of Fate combo, he can't be on the field, but you could set this up with relative ease.

  • Mind Stone replaced by Jeweled Lotus . This one hardly needs an explanation. Jeweled Lotus is SO good in Unesh, because it allows you to play him really fast sometimes. Mind Stone is really lack luster compared to it, the draw effect doesn't make it worth keeping in the slot.

  • Thassa, God of the Sea replaced by Thassa, Deep-Dwelling . After play testing this, I like the value that Deep dwelling generated mor than God of the sea, even at the increased CMC. If your hand is somehow dead at the end of the turn, Deep-dwelling's ability will really save you (provided a sphinx is on the table).

  • Lonely Sandbar replaced by Glasspool Mimic  Flip. The cycling on sandbar is underwhelming, I'd prefer to have the versatility of being having another potential sphinx instead.

Snorlax3 on Mill deck 2

Two of my favorite cards to run in my mill deck are Psychic Corrosion and Teferi's Tutelage. I use them alongside cheap draw power like Opt and Cycling lands like Lonely Sandbar and Barren Moor which causes the opponent to mill 2 for each of the enchantments on the field while also potentially drawing in to more mill cards

Heliogabale on Haha tutors go brrrrrr

OK, I don't know how I missed this in the first place, but Cycling discards the card as well! This opens a whole pool of cards that essentially turn into self-recurring card advantage with DePietro on the board.

Barren Moor and Lonely Sandbar become great cantrips, while Nimble Obstructionist and Decree of Pain grant effects that can be replayed every turn.

Truly this thread is leading to some great ideas!

Lowenstein on Twiddle Storm - The Worst Oiled Machine

5 months ago

Hey so this week I was thinking about this deck, and I think that Halimar Depths could probably replace Lonely Sandbar as a 2-of. Very rarely do I cycle Sandbar and much more rarely is it actually very miraculous. Most of the time, the experience is that I play it on T1 and I'm frustrated because I can't cast my cantrip spell in hand. Halimar Depths is good on T1 or T2 and it helps you with a potential missing combo piece. What do you think? (in response to your comment on my selling post, I will definitely stick around)

Could also consider Stream of Thought as a mill win con. You can run Dizzy Spell as another way to get Stream. Make infinite Mana using your combo and then replicate the Stream as many times as you need to to mill them out then pass turn.

Also, You run Mnemonic Wall already so why not run a flicker combo? Mnemonic Wall, Sunscorched Desert with Ghostly Flicker after you make infinite Mana.

One more suggestion, Forgotten Cave and Lonely Sandbar are strictly better than the desert cycling lands you are running.

As I noted in my previous post I would seriously consider running Capsize. I would take out Blink of an Eye and replace it with the Capsize.

Lastly for now, You should run Neurok Stealthsuit. It keeps your CMDR from getting roasted and can be attached at instant speed. Making for fun shenanigans when someone tries to blow your League up. Just attach in response and hopefully they don't have a followup spell. I would cut Ur-Golem's Eye and add the Stealth suit.

Oh, one more thing. Get rid of Manalith and put a Bonder's Ornament in there. Drawing cards is good. Way better than Manalith.

I would change the creature base up a bit too. There are way better crits out there that you should look into.

Smyers1982 on Mill 'Em or Kill 'Em

dvdn1997 I ended up scratching the extra Lonely Sandbars and put in 4x Evolving Wilds. Like you said they aren't worth the slow down of ETB tapped.
