Stomping Ground

Land — Mountain Forest

(: Add or .)

As Stomping Ground enters the battlefield, you may pay 2 life. If you don't, Stomping Ground enters the battlefield tapped.

Since you have shock lands, Ranger's Path and/or Three Visits might be a ramp spell you can get behind, since it doesn't require basic land types and you can fetch your shock lands right onto the battlefield tapped. Even if you don't need green, fetch the Temple Garden or Stomping Ground to expand your white and red mana. Better yet, Jetmir's Garden for when you can spend a few extra bucks on the deck again.

Also, no hideaway lands? I feel like all three of the hideaway lands in your colors would be easy to trigger by your deck, especially the Mosswort Bridge.

It would prevent damage from Primal Order and Price of Progress, and Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon don't effect you.

How does it interact with Null Chamber, though? With Rootpath Purifier out, does Stomping Ground count as the name of a basic land?

I would recommend some of the Eldrazi titans, such as Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger as some big top end bombs. Some ramp creatures wouldn't go amiss either, such as Birds of Paradise, and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove.

In terms of Instants, Sorceries, and Enchantments, getting some more of the Ultimatum cycle (Brilliant Ultimatum, Cruel Ultimatum, Emergent Ultimatum) might be a good idea, and Sunbird's Invocation would be a good idea too if you are casting such big CMC cards.

Another recommended addition would be Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh as it is just a straight up good card for the colour and big mana theme.

I'd recommend replacing the tapped tri-lands (Arcane Sanctum, Crumbling Necropolis, Frontier Bivouac, Jungle Shrine, Mystic Monastery, Nomad Outpost, Opulent Palace, Sandsteppe Citadel, Savage Lands, and Seaside Citadel) with the shock land cycle (Blood Crypt, Breeding Pool, Godless Shrine, Hallowed Fountain, Overgrown Tomb, Sacred Foundry, Steam Vents, Stomping Ground, Temple Garden, and Watery Grave) as they are easier to fetch for or find with ramp spells.

Final notes: Give the deck a little more of a creature focus, having as few as you have right now you'll find there is very little to hit with your reanimation, but other then that, good job on the first draft! looking forward to see how it plays out!

Rebullet I get what you're saying. My thinking on Dragonskull Summit and Rootbound Crag is that Overgrown Tomb, Stomping Ground, or Ziatora's Proving Ground are all a combination of forest, swamp, and/or mountain. So lands like Dragonskull Summit and Rootbound Crag will entered untapped. And Ziatora's Proving Ground gives cycling if drawn later in the game

I playtested your deck and I think it would benefit from some hand discard mechanics and haste so you can swing immediately with your big baddies.

I recommend Catalog or Artificer's Epiphany for draw/discard.

I recommend running Manamorphose, Anger, and like two Stomping Ground or Ziatora's Proving Ground Jetmir's Garden (budget) so that you can run anger in your graveyard.

I know this changes your color scheme to more of atemur deck than simic, so it's that not what you want ignore this.

Also, Vivien, Champion of the Wilds's flash mechanic could help with the haste thing.

Hey Eldmoi, thanks for the info. There's a quite a bit I would recommend optimizing. The long story short is that most of the dragons I'd recommend are already on my budget primer that you've seen and my super budget deck list that was part of the primer but is also available here if you're interested here.

First of all, you need to make sure your deck has a decent amount of ramp to cast your awesome dragons within a reasonable amount of time. If you are on a budget then I'd recommend Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, and Sakura-Tribe Elder at the very least. Other options for cheap ramp are Farseek, Wild Growth, and Fertile Ground. If you want to further optimize ramp, then adding in Nature's Lore and Three Visits on top of some forest based shock lands (e.g. Stomping Ground or triomes (e.g. Ziatora's Proving Ground would be ideal.

Second, you want to optimize your mana base by minimizing the number of taplands and ensuring you have the colors you need. Any tap lands that tap for only 2 colors (e.g. guild gates) could safely be dropped for basic lands. Tri-lands like you mentioned are decent enough to start off, because they can tap for 3 colors, but even those are suboptimal in the face of options like Dragonskull Summit and Blood Crypt. Furthermore, almost 50% of your deck requires red mana, so I'd ensure your lands reflects that.

Regarding the planeswalkers you have, I'd say Sarkhan, Fireblood is the most useful (distantly followed by Sarkhan Unbroken and Kiora, Master of the Depths). I'd consider cutting the others.

Some things off the top of my head for instants and sorceries: I would consider Crucible of Fire to be a win more card. Lozhan, Dragons' Legacy is almost a strictly better Sarkhan's Unsealing. Damn and Farewell are really good board wipes that aren't as mana intensive as some you're running. Garruk's Uprising is a very potent form of card draw. Monster Manual is probably better than Thran Temporal Gateway in most cases.

Finally the dragons. There are so many good dragons to consider, many of which I've mentioned in my deck primer, and many of which are available on most dragon lists online, that I'll focus on highlighting dragons I would recommend removing:

  • Acid-Spewer Dragon - Overcosted and doesn't do much. Deathtouch isn't as useful on a dragon that should be big enough to kill most thing it hits in the first place.

  • Backdraft Hellkite - Most instant and sorceries you have are too expensive or are simply aren't as immediately useful (e.g. don't want to board wipe your own dragons). The most useful ones you run are removal, but at that point you can just play dragons that can inherently remove things like Steel Hellkite.

  • Crosis, the Purger - Hard to save mana to take advantage of its effect. It'll feel bad to take advantage of its effect in casual metas anyways. If you really want to run a dragon like this then Teneb, the Harvester might be more fitting but even then I wouldn't really recommend it, because of the mana investment needed to make it work.

  • Dragonmaster Outcast - Not a good early game play and easy to kill later on.

  • Dream Pillager - This dragon is overcosted and is mostly a means of pseudo card draw. I'd just play an actual card draw card instead like Ancient Craving or Sign in Blood or Rishkar's Expertise.

  • Kargan Dragonlord - Costs too much to do too little. We have so many dragon options, even in budget decks, that vanilla dragons simply aren't worth it.

  • Malfegor - Discarding our hand isn't good to do unless it involves redrawing more cards (e.g. Knollspine Dragon).

  • Necromaster Dragon - Summoning vanilla 2/2 zombie tokens for 2 mana isn't good value in a dragon deck, and you have to go through combat to get it off. In a world where Ancient Gold Dragon exists, it's hard to justify an effect like this. Dragon Broodmother and Lathliss, Dragon Queen and Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm would be far more effective token generators.

There's always more we could do to optimize any deck, including mine for sure, so I'd be happy to comment more later if you'd like. But I also want to emphasize that as long as you and your playgroup are having fun, you really can't go wrong :)

Ren, Endless Song

Legendary Creature - Satyr Bard

Creatures you control without subtypes get +1/+1 and have vigilance.

At the beginning of combat on your turn, you may pay . If you do, target non-creature permanent you control with mana value X or less becomes a creature in addition to it's other types with power and toughness equal to its mana value. Untap it, it gains haste. If you target a land, put X +1/+1 counters on it, instead.

2/2


Your Stomping Ground and Garruk Wildspeaker both have subtypes should the become creatures, so they do not get +1/+1 and vigilance. However your Great Henge would become a 10/10 with vigilance and haste.

I'd run it.


Make a Commander you'd run.

Metroid_Hybrid on Whats the "best" burn deck?

Usually Boros Burn will run a single Stomping Ground (and Fetch-lands) so that they can keep a playset of Destructive Revelry in the sideboard..

I've actually been wanting to put together a Mono-Red list myself for a while now..
