Tranquil Thicket Discussion

Excellent deck! Land chucking never gets old. Have you considered Tranquil Thicket and Forgotten Cave ? You can continually use Life from the Loam as long as you always grab one of them and cycle it to grab loam again. Which is deadly with BorBor.

Hey bud, just wanted to drop some advice as resident Loam expert.
Your mana base is a little funky for this style of deck. Since you have so many of the triple cost enchantments, Fire-Lit Thicket is a must because it helps you cast either as easily as possible. 2 is enough, but I saw some other guy suggest taking them out without knowing what they're talking about.
You also don't have enough draw lands. I like 5-7 in a two color build. Forgotten Cave , Tranquil Thicket or the horizon lands need to be in here in full force. The cycle lands are about twice as good as the horizon lands, so definitely more of them in the mix.
Some lands to take out: Copperline Gorge and Cinder Glade aren't doing much for you and are kind of a wasted land slot. You're a loam deck, take advantage of that. you can also go down to 2 creature lands.
As far as your main deck goes, Throes of Chaos is a terrible card. Sure, it's fun, but if you want that effect just play Bloodbraid Elf . Throes is really just kind of a waste of mana because you could be doing so many other things. Flame Jab and Worm Harvest can go up in numbers. If you feel like you have to play throes for the fun factor, just play one and use it when you have nothing else to do. Or you can play like Lightning Axe or some other burn.
Anyway, I like the deck, I just think these few little fixes could make it a lot more effective. Have fun Loaming!

Hate to be that guy to point it out, but Chaos Warp is in your land section. I would also replace Desert of the Indomitable with Tranquil Thicket or Slippery Karst and replace Golgari Guildgate and Timber Gorge with better options if you can.

Frank_Glascock I decided to make 2 more changes on the landbase. In my opinion the Barren Moor and Tranquil Thicket are too bad to have in our opening hand compared to the ability to cycle them later on. I really really don't like taplands. And in my opinion these just won't do it.
The replacements are the following: Cavern of Souls just to protect meren from being countered. And a lot more sustainable then the catsnake. And Shizo, Death's Storehouse basically you can consider this a finisher with a big Yahenni or a sheoldred coming for face. Worst case it's a swamp that enter untapped. I see no reason not to run it :)

Slate of Ancestry Great Oak Guardian Phytoburst Weird Harvest Genesis Wave Planar Bridge these are some of the payout cards I've been running, and phytoburst has no reason not to be in brostorm lists because it has a giant boost, would cut for immense. Planar bridge seems dumb, but it isn't that hard to make 14 mana and paradox engine into slate is gg no re. I personally like birthing pod as well. Bloom tender for Beastcaller Savant ? Vitalize and friends? Also one forest for Tranquil Thicket g to draw is pretty good. All my opinion but my deck has a pretty consistent turn 3 win threat just from the mass of extra tutors and hand advantage I run, and I've found that trying to run too many answers is a bad thing, since mono g lends itself to all in fast combo. I personally just run the counter spell counters, the destroy artifact creatures, and Mana Web , but that is more for if your meta is exceptionally blue heavy, though it still makes opponents chose between stopping you and advancing their own plan instead of both. Hope this helps

Tranquil Thicket and other cycling lands are best used in Golgari/Sultai strategies in the presence of Life from the Loam so long as you have the mana to keep the dredge combo going. Probably not for this deck.
Scavenger Grounds is really good, but it can hurt to hit yourself with it. Could be a meta call include.
Arcane Lighthouse isn't largely necessary in a build like this.
My personal input for this Blighted Woodland discussion is that the marginal difference is so slim that I don't think you would notice any major difference if you placed a forest in over it. It just comes down to your preference, so if you feel like it's a nice addition to the deck then by all means keep it. It's your deck after all, I don't think a forest would make an impactful enough difference aside from making green mana to warrant the slot.
