I almost feel like this became a thing because of Command Zone, but I'm not entirely sure. And since fetchlands exist in nearly all formats (With Standard coming and going), this is going in General.

If I have out a Misty Rainforest, and perhaps I am playing Sultai, I have many options I can grab. Aside from just the basics of Forest and Island I also have all of the shocklands, Zagoth Triome and anything else that may have those subtypes.

If I do not need my mana, perhaps because I have 3 - 5 MV spells in hand and this is my first land of the game, it would make sense to get Zagoth Triome as it ETB tapped, but I have nothing to spend mana on, so having a tapped land is perfectly fine.

Likewise, if I have no ability or intention to play anything, grabbing a Watery Grave and letting it ETB tapped is fine as well.

Now, you could point out that you can prevent your opponent from having "information". For example, if I elect to grab Overgrown Tomb, I likely will not be able to cast any blue counterspells since I do not have blue mana. This point is regardless of if Tomb is ETB tapped or not. However, it goes back to my original point:

  • If you have NO ability or intention to cast a spell, having it ETB tapped is fine.

So, why even wait until an end step? It literally makes zero sense.

The only thing I can think of is "waiting to see how the board develops". Like, oh maybe I need that extra now that Kevin's commander came out, so I can Path to Exile it. However, this can easily be done just by assessing the boardstate and what you have in hand. You don't need to "wait" to understand threats and interactions. Plan ahead.

Adding in because it dawned on me after the fact: If you wanted to further trim your CMC, replace Juniper Order Ranger with Good-Fortune Unicorn. Not as good as Juniper Order Ranger as it doesn't place a +1/+1 counter on itself, but it does still place a counter on the ETB'ing creature for two less mana.

Managorger Hydra and Knight of Autumn are both really strong. Avenger of Zendikar can get ridiculous really quickly. You should also look at including more spot removal, like Nature's Claim, Beast Within, and Generous Gift. Tutors like Chord of Calling, Worldly Tutor, Eladamri's Call, and Green Sun's Zenith can help add in redundancy.

Also, I'd advise replacing the taplands (lands that ETB tapped) in your landbase. These slow you down a lot. Things like Brushland, Bountiful Promenade, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and maybe even sometimes Razorverge Thicket can be helpful. Also, fetches like Windswept Heath, Arid Mesa, Misty Rainforest, and Prismatic Vista can also speed you up tremendously because they filter lands from your deck, meaning you're more likely to draw a card that you can play instead of a land - albeit playing fetches like the ones I've listed can get rather expensive $$$ wise very quickly.

Hello SynergyBuild! Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it!

You've raised some valid concerns, and given me a lot to think about. For that, thank you!

I'll be honest, I don't have that good of an excuse for not including Blind Obedience or Song of the Dryads beyond not owning them and more recently not getting a proxy made of them.

As for Generous Gift/Beast Within, I think their effects of being able to destroy a permanent are really powerful. I do think that I want to replace one of them with Song of the Dryads in the near future. I think I might end up replacing the other with Seal of Cleansing.

As for Sylvan Tutor vs Green Sun's Zenith, I'm still torn on this. I think they both have their time and place - I do find myself tutoring for either Collector Ouphe or Sanctum Weaver most of the time with Sylvan Tutor, so I do think Green Sun's Zenith is a better card in this regard as both creatures are green. However, I really like Sylvan Tutor as I think it's a strong turn one play and I don't run Dryad Arbor to make Green Sun's Zenith a strong turn one play.

After thinking about it, you're right in regard to the number of fetchlands I run. I'm going to replace Misty Rainforest with a Forest.

Finally, as for Regrowth - you're right. In a deck running things like Rest in Peace and Ground Seal it does indeed not make much sense why I'm running it. I just like it because of possibly getting something back. After thinking about it, perhaps I should lean more into the graveyard hate, running things like Grafdigger's Cage or Weathered Runestone, but then those turn off a potential Green Sun's Zenith. This is a deck designed to shut off opponent's resources, and inadvertently we will hurt ourselves; a 100% cohesion rate among cards and interactions is impossible. I just think having access to potentially bringing back something is too strong.

Regardless, thank you very much for your comment! It's gotten me thinking again about the deck, which I had kind of written off as finished. In reality, no deck is ever truly finished. Thank you!

Yeah, that's a really good idea with Growth Spiral. I have Misty Rainforest and Breeding Pool in the maybeboard because they'd be really good in this deck, but I can't afford them.

Maybe swap Explore for Growth Spiral? In addition, it would be nice if you could add some fetch lands for additional landfall triggers. Misty Rainforest? Nice deck though.

I know it's on the higher end, but Arid Mesa is super cheap right now. Also, Misty Rainforest, Scalding Tarn, and Verdant Catacombs are at all-time lows so right now is the best time to pick them up. Seriously, if it's even remotely in the budget, these are super worth it.

Also, cards like Farseek, Nature's Lore, and Three Visits are all ramp spells at the right level that get you perfect mana -- once Capenna drops with the naya Triome, they'll quite literally be Arcane Signet but can't be destroyed by commonly run interaction, even if it enters tapped, which is HUGE for fixing. 4 2 mana ramp spells that give you all 3 colors? Chef's kiss.

I think the Narset, Parter of Veils and Mystical Tutor are fine for the Misty Rainforest. If it's a little under value for rainforest, that's fine by me.

And in regards to what edition, it doesn't personally matter to me, I like the art on both. If it comes down to neither of us deciding, I'll flip a coin.
