Temple of Malady Discussion

TinkererEDH on ComicKoS - Lord Windgrace

First thing I'll suggest additions

  • mana ramp: Lotus Cobra - land etb you add one mana of any color - pushes your ramp faster

Amulet of Vigor - if a permanent you control etbs tapped, untap it. Not only ramps you faster, but gets past those pesky all your things come in tapped crud.

Exploration - you may play an additional land each turn, only . Very few things are more satisfying than having 7 lands turn 3 while everyone else is just putting down their third land.

Boundless Realms - search for as many basic lands as lands you control

Scapeshift - search for as many lands (basic or not) as you sacrifice

Kodama's Reach - you need a bunch of ramp spells to act with in case you don't have lord windgrace or he becomes too expensive to cast

Demonic Tutor - search your library for a card

Vampiric Tutor - search your library for a card

Beseech the Queen - search your library for a card

Summoner's Pact - pay or lose at your upkeep

Chord of Calling - search for or less CMC creature

Tooth and Nail - search for two creatures or put two creatures onto the battlefield from your hand

Rude Awakening - all lands you control become 2/2 creatures or you untap all lands or both

three of the five panoramas: The other two only fetch you one of the lands

Jund Panorama - search for any of the three basic land types you need

Grixis Panorama - search for swamp or mountain

Naya Panorama - search for mountain or forest

three of the temples:

Temple of Malady - BG scry 1.

Temple of Malice - BR scry 1.

Temple of Abandon - GR scry 1.

Things to do with

Fireball - x damage to creature or player

Crater's Claws - x damage to creature or player

Rolling Thunder - x damage to creature or player - can do more targets

Banefire - x damage to creature or player

Bonfire of the Damned xx to do x damage to tgt player and each creature he controls

Torment of Hailfire - choice of losing 3 life, sacrifice a nonland permanent, or discard a card - hilarious for huge numbers of x, and can swing the game beyond anyone recovering

Consume Spirit - x loss of life and x gain of life for you

Suffer the Past - x loss of life for x exiled cards from tgt player's graveyard. Kills their recursion and them

Dark Salvation - xx for x zombies and making a creature -x/-x until end of turn.

The upcoming Witch's Cottage looks like a possible 2x. It could replace at least one basic swamp, and possibly one Temple of Malady as well. This particular new land looks interesting.

The deck may not even need the Cottage, and I might be foolishly justifying its inclusion out of interest in the new card.

Hello another time sdh101,

Thanks for all the suggestions. I will do that you say with the Llanowar Elves , and about Temple of Malady , I prefer that the lands enter untapped, but when the checklands rotate, I will add it to the decklist, and maybe the other two ScryLands, if Wotc reprints them.

About Chandra, Acolyte of Flame , for now, I will keep them, but I'm thinking in other possible options like add more removal, but really, the only utility of that Chamdra is that we can recast 2 things from the graveyard (who does not like Snapcaster Mage ?), And if we recast 1 thing and our opponent kills Chandra, it's not bad, because he or she is spending his or her resources.

Thanks again,

TheSimikBOat

I'm not a huge fan of the Chandra, Acolyte of Flame s. The first 0 does next to nothing while the other one is just not a great threat. The last ability lets you rebuy a removal spell, but I like playing more Lava Coil s more. What I don't like about Chandra, Acolyte of Flame is it doesn't give inevitability like most walkers. I think if you want that, I would play Treasure Map  Flip.

Also, I'm curious as to the exclusion of Llanowar Elves . I think you just get some free wins by curving that into Gruul Spellbreaker or Legion Warboss . It also ramps you into Rekindling Phoenix , Doom Whisperer and Chandra, Awakened Inferno . I might cut 2x Merfolk Branchwalker s and mabye 1x Assassin's Trophy and 1x Thrashing Brontodon .

Another thing I'm curious about is maybe some Temple of Malady s.

A cute idea! +1 from me.

Consider Collected Company since it can grab all your pieces except the Clique itself. You'll also probably want a bit of removal - Fatal Push and Path to Exile are great options in your colors. Mortify , Hero's Downfall , Go for the Throat , and Oblivion Ring are some other, slightly less expensive options if you're operating on a budget.

You'll also definitely want some multicolor lands to ensure you aren't screwed out of a particular color when you need it. If you're on a tight budget, Blossoming Sands , Scoured Barrens , Jungle Hollow , and Sandsteppe Citadel are some real cheap options. A step up from there would be Sunpetal Grove , Fortified Village , Canopy Vista , Temple of Plenty , Isolated Chapel , Temple of Silence , Woodland Cemetery , and Temple of Malady . You don't have to spend all your money on shocks and fetches to have a consistent mana base!

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

Hello, i'm sorry for the delay in responding here. Anyways here are the changes I would make:

Ambuscade for Golgari Locket

Slagwurm Armor for Sol Ring

Pounce for Golgari Signet

Prey Upon for Deathcap Cultivator

Noble Quarry for Sheoldred, Whispering One

Grappling Hook for Vraska the Unseen

Ochran Assassin for Reaper of the Wilds

Bonds of Mortality for Phyrexian Obliterator ? :)

Golgari Findbroker for Treasured Find

Explosive Vegetation for Circuitous Route (If you add in my suggestion of Golgari Guildgate then this is a good reason to make this switch).

Swamp for Hythonia the Cruel as you have 1-2x many lands I think and also are a little low on creatures.

Cut 3x Forests and 5x Swamps for these: Command Tower , Golgari Rot Farm , Woodland Cemetery , Tainted Wood , Overgrown Tomb , Hissing Quagmire , Temple of Malady , Blooming Marsh , Jungle Hollow , Golgari Guildgate , Blighted Woodland , Temple of the False God , Llanowar Wastes , Bojuka Bog . (I gave you more than 10 choices here so you have options at varying prices, choose whichever 10 or even more that you would be willing to include here, keep in mind also that I have ordered them based on my most recommended to least, but all are fine choices here).

I have to get going for now, but I hope that you will find all of this useful, and let me know what you think of these changes!

All I can suggest is maybe some Blooming Marsh or Woodland Cemetery instead of Temple of Malady
