Oracle of Mul Daya

Creature — Elf Shaman

You may play an additional land on each of your turns.

Play with the top card of your library revealed.

You may play the top card of your library if it's a land card.

ghgiunco to explain my thought process:

  • yes Wayward Swordtooth is like an Azusa effect, but you already have Azuza. Having multiple of these kinds of effects in play at once is usually not super helpful because even with one down you usually end up playing all the land from your hand super quickly. Importantly also I think you have a LOT of 3-drops and limited early-turn plays. Arboreal Grazer lets you play lands early, which will matter for a fast game, and Growth Spiral/Explore refill your hand while ramping, which is super relevant.

  • Ob Nixilis, the Fallen won’t really win as fast as you think he will. You may have to still play something like 5 lands after playing this guy, and at any point your opponent can just kill him in response to the trigger. Compare this to something like Titania, Protector of Argoth, which creates value and leaves threats on-board even if she’s killed.

  • i’m not suggesting to ditch Ramunap Excavator, but 3 copies imo should serve you better. Drawing multiple of this card is usually going to feel really bad. Imo the only reason to run 4 would be if your deck needs him do achieve anything at all - but that’s a really dangerous place to be so i’d suggest not leaning too heavily on this one card (or at least mix-up the effect with Life from the Loam and Crucible of Worlds). Keep in mind that if you’re playing best-of-3’s, your opponent is very likely to be packing graveyard hate game 2 onwards also.

  • I think Oracle of Mul Daya is similar to the points I made around the Swordtooth above. Notably it’s just another Azuza effect when Azuza herself should be sufficient. But what you really need is those 1-2 mana cards to help snowball your land count early, while still keeping your hand count high where possible. Even if your deck makes a lot of mana, 4 is a lot to spend on this effect.

  • I would second nbarry223’s idea that Harrow does seem like a good fit. However i’d also say i’m not sure if there’s much room to fit it after my other suggestions (which, imo need to come first).

I think my proposed version of the list looks something like:

wallisface I liked the line you proposed. - Just will explain this Wayward Swordtooth was just a Azusa effect redundance and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen a almost win on a spot. And Ramunap Excavator looks so important to consistent play my lands then decide to play 4, no? The idea is consistent play various land drop and/or Ghost Quarters

  • And i forgot it to put Oracle of Mul Daya as a card choise in the build (as azusa effect too) what do you think? withou asmo, do you think i'n without some kind of interactions to remove creatures?

nbarry223 Harrow seens curious, fit in the deck ideia, kinda like. But reanimator i dont like much, seens other line

I would strongly push back on the notion that Amulet of Vigor a) should be played in most decks, and b) can be considered "ramp"

a) Amulet is a pretty narrow card when you think about it. Only a few strategies can really benefit from it's ability. Decks that are making a conscious decision to play a lot of tapped lands (i.e. guildgates) will want it, heavy budget decks who are forced to play tapped lands want it (those decks would quite honestly be better off just running a lot more basics), and it has combo applications in Toggo/Kodama partner decks and Omnath, Locus of Rage decks. That's about it. It's going to be a dead card in most decks.

b) Amulet of Vigor is not ramp, full stop. It doesn't tutor out lands to the battlefield like Rampant Growth, nor accelerate your mana like Birds of Paradise, nor enable additional land drops like Oracle of Mul Daya. Hell, it doesn't even give you burst mana like Dark Ritual (also not ramp). All Amulet does is make it so tapped lands are usable the turn they come down. In no way does it ramp.

I was trying to envision a scenario where this could go mono-green for you like you mentioned. Probably something like the following for the mana:

Out: 2 Cinder Glade, 3 Mountain, 3 Plains, 1 Sacred Foundry In: 5 Forest, 2 Brokers Hideout, 1 Cabaretti Courtyard, 1 Riveteers Overlook

Thoughts on the rest of the deck are as follows:

Out: 1 Ancient Greenwarden, 2 Fearless Fledgling, 1 Moraug, 1 Omnath, 2 Prowling Felidar, 1 Dormant Grove In: 1 Lotus Cobra, 1-2 Life from the Loam, X Ramunap Excavator, X Oracle of Mul Daya (recent reprint should be cheaper), 2-3 Khalni Heart Expedition if the other suggestions aren't available, X Harmonize as needed to help get through the deck.

Fun Deck, but i feel like you need more things to Protect Lathril, like Swiftfoot Boots and Darksteel Plate. Now with the latest set, Elfballs can snag Oracle of Mul Daya easier too! Another card that wasn't looked at too often that came out of Baldur's gate was Jaheira, Friend of the Forest which will turn all your elf tokens made from lathril into mana dorks :) hope some of these help, i've been tinkering with an elfball myself off the original lathril precon, but got a little more expensive.

Stardragon on Land Search?

2 months ago

So with Baldur's Gate coming out with 9 new gates I thought of making a gate deck with Maze's End as a win con. i need more non basic land search (preferably to the battlefield but to the hand if need) and some extra play additional land cards, i have a small amount added ATM I have

Explore, Hour of Promise, Pir's Whim, Reap and Sow, Sylvan Scrying, Tempt with Discovery, Wargate, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Oracle of Mul Daya, Ulvenwald Hydra, Wayward Swordtooth, Kiora, the Crashing Wave, Expedition Map, Crop Rotation and Exploration. Am I missing any? Should I add some light Landfall as well?

Psychic Network doesn't say you're not allowed to see the card by any other means. The printed text just says its own effect doesn't allow you to see it, and its current Oracle text (yes, even Un-cards have Oracle text) says the card is "revealed to each other player". If you also have Oracle of Mul Daya then the card will be revealed to you as well.

AFAIK, this is only an acorn/silver-bordered question, but I'm hoping somebody can think of a relevant black-bordered example or equivalence.

If I control a Psychic Network and later have an Oracle of Mul Daya enter the battlefield, as I understand it, I'll have the top card of my library revealed via the Oracle and not have it pressed against my forehead.

If those enter the battlefield the other way around, the card will be revealed to everybody other than me, so I won't be able to see my top card. But I'll still be able to play it if it's a land card? Even though I won't have that information. Is there any way around not being able to play those lands, aside from casting another Oracle or Sphinx of Jwar Isle or something?

As I type this out, I'm thinking this is... maybe just a question for Blogatog. I dunno. If anybody can shine some light regardless, I'd appreciate it.
