Petrified Field Discussion
3 months ago
Played a bunch today and here is results of changes.
- -1 Apex Devastator to sideboard, moved to sideboard to swap out with blightsteel/eldrazi for newer players
- -1 Temur Sabertooth, removed due to the amount of cardraw available. I feel I would rather draw than bounce.
- +1 Blightsteel Colossus to maindeck, Blightsteel is a counter to my local playgroup. We've got a lifegain deck and one deck running Pariah and Pariah's Shield. Along with Akroma's Memorial and Finale of Devastation this is my nuclear option.
- +1 Bala Ged Sanctuary Flip, land and recurrence is very valuable.
- +1 Mirrorpool, ehh fine seems ok to drop a copy of a big creature that does something,, what's the worst that can happen? :)
- -1 Mana Crypt to maybeboard, don't have one is the only reason. If I can get one,, maybe?
- +1 Jeweled Lotus, replacement for mana crypt... Now let me tell you,, jeweled -> azusa --> lotus cobra --> two fetches --> Tooth and nail.. That was a quick game!
- +1 Maze of Ith, This is at tech, really aggressive in my area! There are some cases it's death to not have an air blocker!
- +1 Petrified Field, Testing it at this time, not sure how to abuse it yet
- +1 Momentous Fall, Does not feel as bad as I initially thought. Use this defensively often times.
- +1 Cryptic Caves, niche card testing it out. Turns your crucibles into three draw for 3 mana + land drops.. 3 mana draw 3 cards... seems decent
- +1 Thespian's Stage, what does it do? answer: yes
- -1 Beast Whisperer, I have enough creatures, but the costs are too high
- +1 Zendikar Resurgent, replacement for beast whisperer, has the potential to double mana while going off
- -1 Guardian Project, same problem as beast whisperer
- +1 Return of the Wildspeaker, another large draw effect to combo off of to replace guardian
- +1 Inkmoth Nexus, bad habits die hard, keeping one in deck for "that guy" at the table.
- -1 Field of the Dead -> maybeboard, only reason I'm taking it out is I don't own it. Dropping it into maybe board
- Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is here to stay. When you go off with a large draw dropping him is amazing. He will give you enough mana to combo off and finish on the stop at times. He's also a good target for Natural Order.
- After drawing 10 cards and drawing into Rude Awakening,, it has a new place in my heart, seems to be a keeper
- Once I hit 25 basics, I think I can just win the game. The amount of basics should stick between 24-26 and 45 lands in total to facilitate the engines. If we're slightly under half I think we're good.
- Kodama of the East Tree was potentially good enough to combo off a large draw with vorin, need to test this more!
Thinking of Cutting:
- Beacon of Creation --> , requires more testing due to new landbase
Why the sideboard was added:
- Core creatures for swapping on the sideboard are Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, Blightsteel Colossus, and Craterhoof Behemoth.
- Each of these creatures fills a different role. voice of hunger is a creature to combo off with on a large draw or to slow down my opponents. Butcher of truth fills your hand then wins by sacing against a single opponent or threating multiple attack if they don't sac a specific permanent (politics yeeehhh). Blightsteel teaches people that lifegain decks don't work against green edh.... craterhoof teaches people that lifegain deck's don't work against green in edh (AZUSA SMASH!!)... please stop playing lifegain decks in edh... Great Distortion draws and controls the game if your ahead.
If I'm playing against my friends then these are great. If we're trying to include someone I will swap them out for cards in the sideboard and leave in a couple.

I like a lot of the includes you have in the deck. I have my own Rhyss deck that I keep trying to push the power level on. I don't think it's quite cEDH level due to our meta having a significant amount of board sweeps. I've built my version to focus on achieving critical mass at instant speed as often as possible and to better withstand board sweeps. Have you thought of running Natural Order to combo with Regal Force (because card draw isn't great in green/white)? It can also get you Craterhoof Behemoth as a win-con. Since you are already running Cradle, what about also running Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip? Also, you may want Petrified Field as cradle insurance (I don't have a cradle yet). I've also been playtesting Eldritch Evolution because it will fetch Priest with a token or Archdruid with a mana dork. Seems to be working out well in my build.
Hope the feedback helps.

I love the folksy flavour of this deck — I have the sitting version of Folk of An-Havva and an An-Havva Inn on hand, so tried this out, and actually won a few games! It was perilous, and it came down to setting up a wall of defenders, and slowly through attrition, Wanderlust saved the day.
As far as tweaking the deck, I was trying to think of similar ways to set up a solid defence, that would also work with the overall theme and fair-tale aesthetics — had me looking up cards by Rebecca Guay, and various artists instead of the usual methods.
I was saved a few times by the flashback on Moment's Peace , and it made me wish I always had a "fog" on hand to slow down my enemies. One idea was to run Constant Mists , prevent all combat damage that would be dealt this turn, and to counter the buyback effect of sacrificing a land, recruit the help of Groundskeeper . (Preferably with the older artwork by Alan Rabinowitz) He's a 1/1 green druid, which will take advantage of the Pendelhaven Elder ability and the artwork is painterly in execution. This way you could perpetually keep the attacking creatures stuck in Constant Mists loop while Wanderlust drives your enemy crazy.
Along a similar theme, Diligent Farmhand is another 1/1 druid, (Pendelhaven worthy) and fits in with the artwork aesthetics. For: 1Green, Sacrifice Diligent Farmhand: Search your library for a basic land card, put that card onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle. A pretty straightforward Rampant Growth sacrifice effect, but the second part of his text got me thinking, "If Diligent Farmhand is in a graveyard, effects from spells named Muscle Burst count it as a card named Muscle Burst." Muscle Burst ? Never seen it before, but it's a 2 cast instant that has the potential to outdo Giant Growth , Target creature gets +X/+X until end of turn, where X is 3 plus the number of cards named Muscle Burst in all graveyards. I can imagine if the graveyard is cluttered with Diligent Farmhand , it could start compounding, and possibly replace Evolutionary Escalation if looking for room in the deck.
If there's advantage to having cards in the graveyard with Muscle Burst , and we're pulling lands out of the graveyard for a constant mist around the An-Havva folk, there might be room in the deck for a Life from the Loam , (preferably with the crow artwork), Return up to three target land cards from your graveyard to your hand. and it's got, Dredge 3 (If you would draw a card, you may mill three cards instead. If you do, return this card from your graveyard to your hand.) , which will pour that Muscle Burst into the dirt, and keep your mist fodder in hand.
Anyhow, thanks for the flavourful deck idea, Kudos!

Hello, thanks for your feedback klaudiohmm I really appreciate it
Harrow puts 2 untapped lands into play, whereas Roiling Regrowth taps them. Let's say on turn 3, I have Harrow and 2 mana ramp in my hand, I can cast both in the same turn. With Roiling Regrowth it would be impossible
I put all 2 mana ramps into this, so there is no better (faster) option, other than Edge of Autumn , left
Migration Path puts 2 lands into play, the end. While Verdant Mastery also puts one into my hand for the same mana value, as my plan is to end the game by turn 5,6 and this is not cEDH, at least not yet, I don't care about one of opponent's getting 1 additional land
Yea, almost all lands are basics, that might be the problem, I'll watch after it, I'm not used to tapped lands tho, and these are only snow that come into play untapped..
Recursion of Gods doesn't fit the gameplan as this is OTK, when I crack The World Tree it will be over
As mentioned once already, Golos, Tireless Pilgrim will be tutoring The World Tree and if I cast it second time it will target Petrified Field so I can return The World Tree from graveyard in case it gets destroyed
Some of them are there for body value, making them look bad in comparison to others, yes. But that doesn't mean that they aren't more than necessary to make the deck work. Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded especially, it is the essential part of the combo as it gives haste to everything I put into play
Thank you for your feedback so much, I cannot express my gratitude well enough (:

Halls of Mist is fun, Maze of Ith, Mystifying Maze, Labyrinth of Skophos all deal with attackers. Another way to deal with creatures is with removal: enter Quicksand and Mouth of Ronom. When protecting your own creatures Yavimaya Hollow is the best. With your general being a 6/6 Arena will kill quite a few unfortunate souls.
Soldevi Excavations is good filtering on a land, Search for Azcanta Flip is great for finding noncreature spells; however, note that it also cannot get lands. Halimar Depths is a one time top deck filter, you have to decide whether entering tapped is small enough to ignore. Castle Vantress is going to be the best land for this, four mana plus a tap is expensive though.
All creature lands are great, but given enough mana Urza's Factory is even better, just pumping out creatures. Hostile Desert takes advantage of all the lands that will undoubtedly be entering your graveyard. Of course the aforementioned Field of the Dead is the best at generating blockers and possibly attackers.

Awesome stuff here, man. If my Azusa deck was a small child, this would undoubtedly be it's angrier, bigger brother. What I like most is the confidence this build exudes, you're very clearly stating "I am going to ramp, you won't be able to stop me, and then I'm going to cast massive spells." Green is my favorite color in Magic, and this list is Green to a T.
Personally, I'd like to see a little more interaction here, but it's worth noting that I was scarred by Winter Orb and Static Orb early on in my EDH tenure, so I'm usually over-prepared to blow one up. That said, Nature's Claim is (in my humble opinion) one of Green's best spells, and worth consideration here.
- Scute Swarm. We already talked about this little guy, and if you're adamant on the number of lands you run, I'd recommend cutting Seek the Horizon or Thaumatic Compass Flip (otherwise I'd say cut a Forest).
- Allosaurus Shepherd. It makes 90% of your spells uncounterable, and that effect is impactful at nearly any stage of the game. It allows you to play greedily and sink a ton of mana into your spells, which seem important in this build. I'd think about it and consider cutting my above suggestions, or Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip.
- You can't go wrong with Worldly Tutor. Tutors = consistency.
- Scapeshift is a wonderful spell that will make your friends hate you. It's dangerous in my deck, and I think it'd be even more dangerous here given the number of lands you're running. Sacrifice any number of lands, go pull the best lands out of your deck, and make sure one of them is Field of the Dead. Suddenly, you've got an army of zombies, Gaea's Cradle, Strip Mine, Deserted Temple, Eye of Ugin, etc. I think you'd be fine to cut Life from the Loam, as you've already got plenty ability to play lands from the grave.
- Castle Garenbrig is a strictly better Forest in a mono-Green list.
- Dryad Arbor is surprisingly diverse. You can GSZ where X = 0 and go get Dryad Arbor, it taps for mana, it counts towards Gaea's Cradle, and it gets beefed by Finale of Devastation.
- Temple of the False God is actually pretty good in Azusa. I know, I know, it's a grossly overplayed card in our format, but as you already know, Azusa has no problem getting to 5 lands, and from that point on, it's a better Ancient Tomb.
- Petrified Field is neat with Realms Uncharted (if you don't already have the ability to play from the grave) and offers the ability to instant-speed get a land out of your yard. I find it to be pretty versatile.
- Wasteland isn't as good as Strip Mine, but it punishes multi-color decks. If you're like me and play in a tri-color meta, I think you'll find that it treats you well.
Hopefully I provided some decent food for thought. Either way, I think you have a great build here; I'm sure it's a blast to play!

For recursive lands: Mystic Sanctuary (Dumb Good), Witch's Cottage, Mortuary Mire all work once, but with flickerable effects it's all fine, and you can sacrifice Buried Ruin, Petrified Field, Sequestered Stash. Hall of Heliod's Generosity/Academy Ruins are insane in the right decks, and Emeria, The Sky Ruin is busted in the late game. Mistveil Plains sort of works as recursion, and is repeatable, but is best with tutors and tutor chains. Even Unholy Grotto works amazingly in zombie decks!
(Nonbudget versions would be like Volrath's Stronghold)
Removal is plentiful on lands, but pretty specific. Blast Zone is a favorite of mine, and is dumb good. Ghost Quarter, Field of Ruin, Dust Bowl, Encroaching Wastes, Memorial to War, and Tectonic Edge all deal with lands. Arena, Barbarian Ring, Blighted Gorge, Cabal Pit, Desert, Keldon Megaliths, Keldon Necropolis, Mouth of Ronom, Rath's Edge, Grasping Dunes, Ifnir Deadlands, and Quicksand are good against creatures, and some walkers.

sweet list, here are some recommendations from my "storm" style build of tatyova.
