Lotus Vale Discussion

Feiryn on Here there be DRAGONS!

I'm personally not a fan of any of those lands though Lotus Vale, Meteor Crater, and Unclaimed Territory are okay. I'd say by far the most useful is Unclaimed Territory. The main issue with the others is that Lotus Vale only taps for one colour each time, and Meteor Crater requires you already have permanents out (which doesn't include other lands). Dowsing Dagger  Flip is pretty decent, if you have room for it I'd try it out at least!

Feiryn Would I be able to get your opinion about some cards I'm considering purchasing for this deck? I've bought all of the land cards I mentioned earlier... However what are your thoughts about the following considering I'll have all of those fetch lands/shock lands too? Lotus Field, Lotus Vale, Ancient Ziggurat, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Meteor Crater, Unclaimed Territory.

Wow, this deck has come a long way since the last time I was here. Congratz and well deserved! I also see some more basics in there (which I appreciate ;)) and no more Scorched Ruins and Lotus Vale. Is that a result of your new play group(s)? I was expecting to see Lotus Field though. Have you considered that one? You might also like the new Mangara, the Diplomat as a subtle pillowfort piece.

Anyway, keep up the good work :)!

What land does Farseek pull? You are in mono green, you can literally not run any land it could pull. I would swap it out for Nature's Lore, which is the inverse of it.

On a different note, I would suggest running Castle Garenbrig in the deck as well. You are in a mono green creature based deck, so this land is very useful.

I would also replace Command Tower with a basic forest. You gain nothing from having it in the deck, and it only opens up some risks (such as getting hit by a Blood Moon or Wasteland).

As well as that, I would suggest cutting some non-lands to run Lotus Vale and Lotus Field. Both of these lands can tap for a bunch of mana. Same can be said for Crystal Vein and Jungle Basin.

Deck name suggestion: Skittle, Taste the Painbow. Just because I'm a sucker for PUNS! Also, love the deck, +1 and have you thought about upgrading your Lotus Vale for a Lotus Field ? I get that it might affect speed but I'm not seeing any synergy with it in your deck in the first place. It's still a 1 mana bump for a land drop. No untap shenanigans

I had typed, like, 5000 characters and the site crashed

The short version: This is a collection of midrange creatures with control permanents and sorceries. That's never good. Your cuts will come from committing to one plan or another.

But Cradle of Vitality and Sunbond always go. Come on, son - you have the only playable versions of those effects in your command zone already.


Reservoir aside, if your intent is to kill people manually, why are you playing so much symmetrical mass wipe? And then there's the halfhearted mana destruction line... I'm always here for it, and you should always be ready to remind people you have the cards and could do it, but your average cmc isn't less than 2 and you aren't playing a combo, so why is this package here?

Committing entirely into or out of the control plan is ultimately how you'll cut down to 99.

As things stand, this is most closely built to be played as a midrange deck. You just have so many creatures.

If you want to play this as a control deck, the tools are out there, but you'd ultimately be using enchantments and (as many colored) artifacts as possible to turn on devotion, and then heliod and your planeswalkers (and vehicles) would be able to get around your creature wipes.

Reflecting anyway in its current midrange form:

-treasure map: Your current list lacks the tools or even the curve to support this control tool. This could just be a Wayfarer's Bauble

-Hushbringer: Karlov can't be bothered to dance with it, and he only runs the soul sisters.

-Path to exile: Being in artifact/white, you can just run good cards. This should be a Dispatch if you aren't actually running path to ramp yourself. Don't forget your Ancient Den .

-Myriad Landscape is awful. This should be Inventors' Fair anyway. Or at least something should be - you're running too many lands as it is, even with armageddon.

-you're gonna nykthos off of 30 permanents? I think you meant to type Eidolon of Rhetoric

-mikaeus without an army of dice just isn't worth the space

-hedron archive has to tap several times before it's sacrificed for cards in order for it to have been worth the trouble - this shouldn't have made the cut before Commander's Sphere . you can play Cryptic Caves in the land line, too.

-thran dynamo isn't doing anything for you; you'd likely be better off with a gift of estates (and then an orescoes explorer, a boreas charger...) At this point, you could build like you have a Land Tax and go all in: Lotus Field , Lotus Vale , Karoo , Remote Farm ... and then you could justify that crucible of worlds.

Of note: the Mana Lotus Vale produces can be used to pay for Tale's End so you can get it out turn 1, also if you wanted to do that more consistently there are additional copies in Repudiate / Replicate and Disallow .
