Strip Mine Discussion

ReddRhino on Mina and Denn, Land Cultivation and Devastation

Lands to consider: Terramorphic Expanse , Myriad Landscape , Blighted Woodland , Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle , Ghost Quarter and/or Strip Mine (use them to create small combos), Thespian's Stage , Mountain Valley , Ghost Town , Jund Panorama , Naya Panorama , Ash Barrens , Wasteland , Drownyard Temple , Lotus Field , Cryptic Caves (a nice draw engine), Warped Landscape , Sunscorched Desert (repeatable damage), Command Beacon (nice way to avoid commander tax)...there's more, but you get the idea. Most of these produce some kind of mana so you won't be without it. You just need to keep the cycle of dropping lands going.

Also I feel like you have tutors for things but not the things to tutor. You have Green Sun's Zenith but no Dryad Arbor or Reclamation Sage and you have Crop Rotation but no Strip Mine or Scavenger Grounds . I usually try to build my tutors to have a suite to pick from for flexibility.

Regarding Svella....Both activated abilities, while ramping towards and cheating primal surge, each are subpar abilities. Given such, IMO, it makes the card subpar. You view it as "not eating removal as a benefit." For me, I would want each card in my deck to be as threatening as possible (as a control player particularly but in general) that way the removal is on that card rather than another. Also nice to bait counterspells.

Goblin Bombardment and Tajuru are meta calls, got it. I was looking into player hexproof cards but aside from Witchbane orb, there isn't much in your colors. If Azami is really and issue, then have you considered swapping gobling bombardment with either Phyrexian Revoker (Tutorable through woodland bellower), or perhaps even a Damping Matrix . Damping matrix hits 9 of your creatures (10 if Svella stays) and 3 of your artifacts. I think that's a fair trade, although I prefer Phyrexian Revoker as you can name Azami. Note it says "As" it enters the battlefield so they can't respond, unless they respond to the cast, which won't do them much aside from putting permanents that would have been on the field to your hand. I know revoker is only specific to the Azami card and not the draw spell that player has in their hand at instant speed which can target any player, but stil, worth mentioning.

Regarding Klothys, God of Destiny, I can see that now that you mention it. Still, too slow for my tastes personally even with what you have described, but I love that cycle of G-d's so I love seeing them. Shivan and Heartless are cute, still not worth it IMO as bloodmoon/magus really make you be picky with your nonbasics (not to mention your dorks) but if it works, it works.

Regarding Maybeboard, I'm biased with my suggestions... Skullclamp for draw. You need to draw into primal surge, drawing a bunch of cards is the best way to do so. Sylvan Library for desperate draw but more importantly, topdeck manipulation to ensure you don't miss land drops. Not needed, but nice to have. Survival of the Fittest / Fauna Shaman - Tutoring for almost half your deck is so powerful, genesis synergy is nice to have. I see Zealous is in your mayeboard, can combo with Kiki Jiki mirror breaker to ensure a way to win through combat with primal surge? Not sure if you like combos, both are expensive CMC. While unlikely to be added, thought it was worth mentioning.

My meta is littered with land decks, so a Strip Mine goes a long way for me. Would you rather have a strip mine or shivan against the cradle, urborg, coffers, field or nytkhos you will inevitably be up against?

You seem to have A LOT of anti-blue already, is price of glory really needed when everyone but the green player is ramping through artifacts? I feel you already have so much anti-blue redundancy in the deck, that removing price of glory (for whatever) would behoove you. I would add in another ramp piece, whether thats another dork or artifact.

Fair enough, I kind of figured as much but wanted to run them by you just in case. Thank you for discussing each reason for each card :) Do you have a budget per card? Any reason why you are running all basics and no valakut or atleast some minor nonbasics?

Jeska's Will - Value town

Hanweir Battlements  Flip - Haste for commander, politics (if you're into that), etc...

War Room - Draw

Deflecting Swat - Counter counterspells, redirect targetted draw, extra turns, removal, discard, etc... the utility!

The land that can make your dude a G-d and then if you sac it, you get an indestrucible counter. It came out in the last year, forgot the name as I haven't been up to date since March 2020. Can be helpful as a means of protecting your commander

Champion's Helm > Whispersilk cloak - I take it you aren't attacking with your commander nor the remainder of your creatures

Myriad Landscape - Ramp

Strip Mine / Wasteland / Field of Ruin / Tectonic Edge /Any similar card - Deal with cradle, coffers, urborg, field, etc.... meta call, but these lands are prevalent in my meta.

Blast Zone - Interact with enchantments/others. A bit expensive mana wise, but worth a look at if you have troubleseome enchantments in the meta

Wurmcoil Engine would work really well with what you've got already. Sadly paradox engine is now banned so that would be an easy cut. Strip Mine is also a good addition in almost every deck. I would also check out Chromatic Orrery / Jeweled Lotus for mana rocks.

Mcat1999 people rarely play single-target removal spells on lands--not to say you won't see Beast Within s on Gaea's Cradle s or Strip Mine s in more competitive settings... but MLD makes up the vast majority of all LD.

I'm speaking from an EDH perspective here, though. Ghost Quarter s and such see play without much opposition emotionally in other formats, but since commander is a "casual format" you'll see much more resistance there.
