ERROR404NAMENOTFOUND on Tergrid, God of Grave Robbing

Rankle, Master of Pranks really has the perfect abilities but I'm not sure how to sneak him past enemy defenses to deal combat damage to a player. The Stronghold Rats come with shadow, so it was an easy pick. I do have Whispersilk Cloak but that's about it. At my LGS, running flyers is the norm. I have no idea if that's how it is at most places, so it may be more of a local quirk that makes Rankle harder to benefit from.

I swapped out a basic for Mikokoro, Center of the Sea.

If you want to feed people some cards in Black, you might be interested in Master of the Feast. There is also Mikokoro, Center of the Sea which feeds everyone a card. If you're making people sacrifice stuff, Ogre Slumlord can make you handy blockers.

Tur on Hidden Power - Crop Rotation

1 month ago

Hello everyone! This will be a trial forum post for a "Commander - Hidden Power" series. My goal is to show relatively inexpensive cards which are often overlooked by commander players in semi-competitive and casual play. (This post is not designed for competitive play.) If you enjoy the topic, please provide positive feedback and I will consider creating similar posts.

The powerful card I plan on discussing here is Crop Rotation.

This card under five dollars and is one of the most powerful mono-green tutors. Period. Yes, I'm counting all mono-green tutors. This includes: Worldly Tutor, Finale of Devastation, Green Sun's Zenith, Survival of the Fittest, Chord of Calling, Natural Order, Tooth and Nail, Sylvan Tutor, Time of Need, Scapeshift, Hour of Promise, Tempt with Discovery, Reshape the Earth, Boundless Realms, Traverse the Outlands, Rampant Growth, Harrow, Cultivate, Harvest Season, Explosive Vegetation, etc.

It's one color, one mana, instant, searches for any land, you can sacrifice a tapped land, and puts the land onto the battlefield untapped (unless otherwise specified).

Although, Crop Rotation is often overlooked by players because of the very expensive cards it can search and not being "flashy" enough. Yes, Crop Rotation is ideal with any of the following cards: Gaea's Cradle, Mishra's Workshop, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Serra's Sanctum, Bazaar of Baghdad, and Diamond Valley. However, suppose we don't have a one thousand dollar mana base and cannot play the land cards above. Is Crop Rotation worthless? No. It is still one of the best mono-green tutors. There are so many utility and theme lands which are excellent targets. Ramp lands and color-fixing are also viable options. Here are a few categorized ideas:

Utility Lands:

Theme Lands:

Ramp Lands:

Color-Fixing Lands:

There are many more unlisted cards in each category which could fit your specific deck.

Some of the cards listed above have some pretty cool synergies with Crop Rotation here are a few:Urza's Saga, you can let the saga get to chapter III, then with the ability on the stack sacrifice it to Crop Rotation to get both the artifact and land. Field of the Dead is ideal in every two or three color commander deck with a sufficient mana base (in fact some of my win conditions are given by Field of the Dead). You can also use Field of the Dead as a combat trick. Scavenger Grounds and Bojuka Bog are fantastic for graveyard combo disruption. Maze of Ith and Glacial Chasm will hurt your lands, but sometimes it is needed to stay alive.

Simply having the ability to greatly effect the board state using a one-mana instant speed spell is impressive: life gain, damage prevention, removing steal effects, getting around blockers, denying counterspells, combo stoppers, unlimited hand size, sacrifice engines, haste, recursion, ramp, creating token blockers. The list goes on-and-on-and-on. If fact, if you're playing 3-4 of the lands listed above you should really consider Crop Rotation in the ninety-nine.

All in all, I'm always surprised the number of deck lists which do not play Crop Rotation. This is a fantastic card and one of the best mono-green tutors. It has so much hidden power. Ask yourself if there is a nonbasic land which you are playing (or would play) that would do well with Crop Rotation.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Yomiji, Who You Didn't Know Was This Good.

Oh this is a very interesting use of mass land destruction. Have you thought about running more legendary lands to play off of Yomiji's ability? There are a decent amount of legendary utility lands in white: Eiganjo Castle, Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire, Flagstones of Trokair (really good with MLD), Geier Reach Sanitarium, Karakas, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, and Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper. There are a couple enchantment's matter legendary lands in white as well, but they have less synergy/utility here.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope is generally pretty solid in decks running MLD.

What about Tragic Arrogance over something like All Is Dust. It lets you keep Yomiji around, but has basically the same effect.

I also really like Heroes' Podium and Relic of Legends in legendary matters decks.

I know you weren't really asking for suggestions, but I think this is a really cool deck idea so I got a little excited haha.

+1 from me

Hello! After checking this out, might you consider:

I really appreciate your inclusion of Mikokoro, Center of the Sea. It's one of my favorite lands.

Please continue to adapt and change and grow! This deck has so much potential. I did want to comment that a lot of what CoarselyRefined holds weight and Massacar also made great points.

One of the greatest bits about this site is how many different perspectives and playstyles are available through the community of users.

Good luck in your building!

Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar would be great for turning your Commander's ability into a mana source. Adding Pitiless Plunderer is great as well especially with the previous two cards mentioned. They actually infinite combo with Bloodsoaked Champion and either Zulaport Cutthroat or Blood Artist. Mikokoro, Center of the Sea is good in mono black decks imo. Also Peat Bog and Gemstone Caverns would be good additions to the land base as well. Boseiju, Who Shelters All it also very good for protecting stuff.

If you like these choices then I can help out with what to take out! Looks fun though!
