Snow-Covered Forest Discussion

Minousmancer on Witherbloom Storm (Budget)

1 month ago

Hi razelfark

I like the this deck concept I have several similar(I'll list one with the simplest concept I use) I love Witherbloom!

My suggestions come in your Lands, ie. instead of 2xCrawling Barrens, I'd run 4x Faceless Haven I'd also suggest running 26 lands if you are going to run with "Manlands". I would use 4x Darkbore Pathway  Flip. No "jungle hollows" nor "Campus" they are too slow for Witherbloom. 9x Snow-Covered Forest and 9x Snow-Covered Swamp . One because the are considered "Basic" Land and two it only takes 3 Snow-Covered Lands to activate Faceless Haven instead of 4 for crawling barrens.

Have thought about adding Plumb the Forbidden ? With Witherbloom Apprentice and Bastion of Remembrance it's like a machine gun and since it Drain Life they can't "prevent damage" from it.

Also the Learn mechanic with cards like Eyetwitch + Sedgemoor Witch is great for more canon fodder like Pest Summoning or Necrotic Fumes .

Here is the deck I had mentioned sharing with you earlier.

The Flood (Halo)

These are all just my suggestions, take them with a grain of salt. Ultimately what matters is designing and playing a deck you like/love.

If you equip your Abominable Treefolk with a Paradise Mantle it will still produce snow mana. Add a Leyline of Abundance and the additional is not snow mana, because it's created by the enchantment, not the snow creature.

You can check for yourself in Arena by enchanting a Snow-Covered Forest with a Wolfwillow Haven and manually tapping it, to see the mana appear separated in your pool, and with overlayed.

So snow is indeed a deeper Magic embedded in the supertype, that can be referred to in rules text ( Frost Bite ) and has inherent effect on the mana produced by snow permanents, which costs of cards and/or abilities may specifically ask for ( Arcum's Astrolabe & Ascendant Spirit ).

I don't know the exact reason Wizards decided to not go the same route with Desert, but I do know that a desert is not just hot and sandy and the opposite of snow. The south pole is considered a desert, due to its low amount of yearly precipitation. I'm glad that, if we ever see it on a card, it will be a 'Snow Land - Desert' instead of a 'Basic Snow Desert Land - Swamp'; whatever that would look like. Ecologically speaking, swamps and deserts are very different and hard to unite, though I'm not sure that would stop Wizards from trying '^^

Kaldheim probably wouldn't have been snow-themed if the snow supertype didn't exist already, but the fan backlash over a Nordic themed set without the already existing snow cards is something Wizards probably didn't want to deal with. Let's just be happy Snow Basics are very cheap again :)

Cool. Have you played it much? How does it fare against mono blue control, stax control, and pillow fort?

I wonder if there is a better alternative to Exploration, considering you are running light on lands and do not have particularly great card draw. I run it in a few cEDH decks but am Usually disappointed in the outcome.

Maybe something along the lines of One with Nature if you can get a creature through. Even something like Manabond may be better considering that it ramps harder earlier and you will be relying on your commander to tutor cards anyways.

Also, how do you expect to achieve the massive acceleration afforded by Cradle and Nykthos with Damping Sphere in play?

You may consider abandoning that entirely.

On the topic of Cradle, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip is incredible in decks such as this one.

Since you run GSZ, you should run Dryad Arbor for a competitive edge.

Since you run predominantly forests, why not make them Snow-Covered Forest and run Extraplanar Lens to make the advantage asymmetrical.

Since you run Top and Mirri’s Guile, why not run at least a couple fetch lands if for nothing else but an occasional shuffle. I understand that Yisan should shuffle your library, but I can imagine many scenarios in which that won’t be an option and you will still need to search for answers.

You may want Dosan the Falling Leaf or Allosaurus Shepherd (both tutorable) or City of Solitude to prevent opponents from interacting with your Sabertooth finisher or Craterhoof.

Without that type of protection you are vulnerable to common interaction such as Force of Will , Stifle , or any of the split second spells.

I’m not worried about Veil of Summer—-I’d just hit it with another free counter or Dispel.

I think without proper protection, this deck would have a big problem with any mono-blue control (even on a $75 budget!)

Not trying to be harsh—-I really like the deck—-just trying to give you some insight about the weaknesses I perceive and how I’d exploit them if I were your opponent.

I hope this helps.

Have you thought abut running Strionic Resonator in parallel with Lithoform Engine? I see Primal Vigor is missing. Considered running Field of the Dead and swapping some Forest and Mountain for Snow-Covered Forest and Snow-Covered Mountain?
