Thespian's Stage Discussion
6 days ago
I'm glad you like it, cmilner! I was thinking about adding the Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage combo, but I decided not to do it, because I would be too tempted to search for them every time. It's the same reason I'm not including Triskelion or Walking Ballista , even though Mikaeus would be happy to have them. When it comes to Phyrexian Obliterator , I'm constantly thinking about replacing it with Phyrexian Delver , but I can't bring myself to cut what may be one of my favorite magic cards, even though I'm pretty sure the Delver would be much more syngergistic. I'm hung up on one day casting Necromancy or Chord of Calling and blocking some 15/15 with the Obliterator :D Also, lately I've been thinking about replacing Lightning Greaves with the new Rushed Rebirth from Strixhaven. Seems like a perfect card for this deck. The only problem is it's mostly a one and done effect.

Hello fellow Titania player. From my experience I'd highly recommend a few cards:
- Lands: Command Beacon , Mouth of Ronom , Dark Depths + Thespian's Stage
- Others: Realms Uncharted , Nissa's Pilgrimage is better than Kodama's Reach, Greater Good , definitely Tireless Tracker , and Squirrel Wrangler is super powerful with Gaea's Cradle .
Your list looks really strong, stronger than mine (I keep the power lvl a bit lower due to the general lvl my playgroup is at), but I think a few of my suggestions can push yours even further. If your interested, here is my own list: The Entmoot. We have similar themes! :) +1

honestly going RG base with a WU splash is what I find to be the best. You have access to things like Academy Ruins and Hall of Heliod's Generosity to get back your milled moxen or Exploration s as you need.
Anyway, I would argue that, even with no black mana in the deck, that Smokestack is much less powerful than Nether Void in most matchups. Dredge will still function, of course, but will not be able to cast too many spells. Even something like Sphere of Resistance is a better alternative. The worst matchup for lands is Storm, so making them have to start sacrificing their lands after they've probably already gone off and killed you seems pretty impractical. Sphere of Resistance makes them need to deal with it before even thinking of going off, since the entire power of storm bases itself around making enough mana to go off, rather than making overly excessive amounts, so leeching 1 mana per spell seems really strong (and it is in practise, too)
I also find that 4 Dark Depths and 4 Thespian's Stage are both sort of overkill, as when you're functioning fully you're effectively drawing 3 cards per turn with loam putting the top 3 cards of your deck into your bin. I do find that Field of the Dead is a really good alternative too, and even against 1 lands spy or manaless dredge or whatnot you can still make a board with it - wasteland your own things and replay them through the power of loam. It's really sketchy, but if that's all you can do then so be it. It does give you quite a boardstate quite quickly in any case.
Propaganda is a much worse version of Glacial Chasm , and yes glacial chasm has a cumulative upkeep cost, but if you have loam and Exploration available then you can just sit and control the board with Punishing Fire s to chip down your opponent and their boardstate. If you have another exploration out then you can advance your own boardstate althewhile too.

Good for Monocolor:
Excuse me, you dropped this:

Have you considered Any combination of Emrakul's Evangel , Nomads' Assembly , Sylvan Offering ? Emrakul's Evangel pretty much makes all your base 1/1 creature tokens into base 3/2 tokens--boosting the usablily of Elemental Bond. Nomads' Assembly doubles the number of creatures you control for two turns. Sylvan Offering gives you one big creature and a bunch of little ones.
Also, with so many tokens getting onto the battlefield you may want to consider finding spots for Essence Warden , Soul's Attendant and Soul Warden . The life gain from the three alone will keep you alive as you build your army.
If you're interested in an alternate win card, the enchantment Epic Struggle would definitely be up your alley--especially since it can get around prison decks. Speaking of enchantments, Leyline of the Meek will boost your creature tokens and Cindervines will deal damage to your opponents until you need to destroy someone's artifact or enchantment.
Speaking of damage, Zhur-Taa Druid deals damage to an opponent each time you tap it for mana.
Field of the Dead should be an add in due to all the different named lands you have in your deck. Other lands that can create creature tokens for you without sacrificing the lands include, but are not limited to, Khalni Garden and Dwarven Mine . If you don't mind some sacrifice the Dark Depths / Thespian's Stage combo is the best.

Damn, i overlooked Koma... sorry for that.
Yes it would detroy one because of the legend rule. But if Thespian's Stage becomes a copy of Dark Depths you choose the Depths to be destroyed. The Stage then is a copy of Dark Depths without any counters on it and you can sacrifice it to get a 20/20 Marit Lage-Token, possible in one turn.
The same is true to Arixmethes, where Thespians Stage wouldn't have any slumber counters on it and would be a straight 12/12.

But a +1 alone for Arixmethes and the theme :)
I build a Sea-Creature/Landfall-subtheme deck (budget-ish) as well... Maybe you want to have a look:
EDIT: Oh, what about Koma, Cosmos Serpent ? It would fit just perfectly and is an absolutely powerhouse. Return of the Wildspeaker could be used to push some dmg through or draw a b*ttload of cards ;o)
