Snow-Covered Forest Discussion

One last thing, if you can replace your current lands with the snow-covered variants (Snow-Covered Island, Snow-Covered Forest), then you can run Ice-Fang Coatl, which is a big improvement to your offensive power (I'd be dropping the Counterspell to make room for it, or Deadly Recluse if you're set on keeping countermagic)

Doing it without Tron lands could give you a brew that looks very similar to existing Soulherder archtypes (just without Soulherder)... something like this might be almost-competitive (although at this point, it's a very different list to what you're trying to achieve, so not sure if this is the route you'd want to go down):

Cards: Glacial Crevasses, Snow-Covered Mountain.

I've had my eye on possibly running Glacial Crevasses in my EDH decks for quite some time now as I feel it makes an excellent combat deterrent. By having this card on the field the whole table knows I can completely negate an attack thrown at me even when tapped out which can help keep combat-oriented decks from wanting to waste their combat step on me.

The problem is this card only works if I have Snow-Covered Mountains. If I have none Glacial Crevasses means nothing to my opponent, if I have one Snow-Covered Mountain my opponents might try to fish me into sacking it and if I have three Snow-Covered Mountains my opponents will likely not bother with me until the game reaches a 1-versus-1 state.

This card is easier to run in mono-red decks, but I want to put it in 3-color decks which means I don't want to flood my entire manabase with Snow-Covered Mountains especially if I'm not going to draw into Glacial Crevasses certain games.

Additionally would you count fetch-lands towards your Snow-Covered Mountain count, such as Arid Mesa , Ash Barrens , Bloodstained Mire , Prismatic Vista , Scalding Tarn and Wooded Foothills? (My 3-color red decks usually run all 6 of these fetches just to color fix with Ravnica shock lands if needed.)

Also how good would you evaluate Unstable Frontier as a utility land? If I'm running Snow-Covered Forests, Snow-Covered Islands, Snow-Covered Plains or Snow-Covered Swamps, I can use Unstable Frontier to turn any of them into a Snow-Covered Mountain and as a color fixing source if I have too many Snow-Covered Mountains, but I don't know if it would be better to just use another Snow-Covered Mountain over it instead.

Lastly, should I run cards like Alpine Meadow, Highland Forest, Sulfurous Mire and Volatile Fjord? I already run all the Modern fetch-lands that could tutor for lands such as these, so I could hit them very consistently, but I don't like the fact they're tap-lands. Given I run only three colored decks I can only ever fit any of two of them at a time. Would they be worth an inclusion?

Thank you for your insight.

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 :)
