Twilight Mire Discussion
1 month ago
If you're looking to do spider tribal, perhaps consider Conspiracy and Cover of Darkness ? Conspiracy will let you turn all your creatures into spiders, then you can give them extra evasion with Cover. Also, you may want to add some more dual lands and other useful lands if at all possible. Some examples would be Llanowar Wastes , Hissing Quagmire , Overgrown Tomb , Twilight Mire , and Nurturing Peatland . For tribal synergy, also consider Path of Ancestry as well as, if you can afford the hefty price tag, Cavern of Souls to help protect your spiders.
Another suggestion to capitalize on ETB abilities would be Conjurer's Closet . This lets you flicker a creature at the end of your turns, so you get continuous value! That all said, I like what you have going so far! Hope you have fun with your first deck! :D

Nice Deck, Abzan is one of the best tri colors for tokens, the only problem I can see regards the lands. I would consider adding some of the following lands: Godless Shrine , Temple Garden , Sunpetal Grove , Isolated Chapel , Silent Clearing , Concealed Courtyard , Marsh Flats , Fetid Heath , Caves of Koilos , Nurturing Peatland , Blooming Marsh , Llanowar Wastes , Verdant Catacombs , Twilight Mire , Scattered Groves , Razorverge Thicket , Canopy Vista , Brushland , Windswept Heath , Wooded Bastion , and possibly Prismatic Vista . Having these should help your deck out a lot! If you found any of these suggestions helpful I would appreciate it if you upvote my deck: A Deal With the Devil EDH! Nonetheless, I hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a nice day!

Nice Deck, but there is some room for card improvement in it. Start off by adding Hinterland Harbor , and Breeding Pool , since you already have the other check and shock lands. And don't forget Watery Grave either. I would also consider adding fetch lands: Polluted Delta , Verdant Catacombs , and Misty Rainforest . Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is also pretty much a better version of a swamp as well. Filter lands would also be useful like Twilight Mire , Flooded Grove , and Sunken Ruins . You don't really need Bounce Lands like Simic Growth Chamber , but they are ok if you want to keep them. I would prefer to have fast lands though: Blooming Marsh , Botanical Sanctum , and Darkslick Shores . The other Horizon land would also be helpful, I believe it is called Waterlogged Grove . These lands should hopefully make your deck a lot better! If you find any of these suggestions useful I would appreciate it if you upvote my deck: A Deal With the Devil EDH! Have a great day, hope these suggestions help, and good luck on your deck.

The only thing I check in peoples decks (99.99% of the time) are their lands. Lands are my favorite part of magic, so I'm very particular about them. I'd recommend you add the following lands to your deck: Overgrown Tomb , Woodland Cemetery , Nurturing Peatland , Blooming Marsh , Verdant Catacombs , and Twilight Mire . I would also consider adding cards like Giant Growth , because if hypothetically you attacked with Glistener Elf , and played Giant Growth on it your opponent would get 4 infect instead of 1 for only 1 mana more. Otherwise though, nice! Infect is a great ability to build a deck around. If you found any of my suggestions useful I would appreciate it if you upvote my deck: A Deal With the Devil [EDH]. Good Luck on your Deck, and Have a Nice Day

So testing has commenced -- proxied everything while I finish sorting through other stuff to get rid of that I'm not playing. Its a bit of a poor testing environment so I'll have to really hold judgment until I play it in a pod, but it feels pretty good so far. Having Crop Rotation lets me set up some pretty interesting things. Earlier today I instant-speed responded to a big dragon about to declare attacks with Crop Rotation into Dryad Arbor , flashing in Dictate of Erebos and sacing the Arbor to High Market to force the sac of the dragon. That was fun. Later I managed to stupidly keep a colorless-only hand, and ended up drawing only colorless lands and no way to turn on the Twilight Mire until I top-decked the manland , activated it, sac'd it to Phyrexian Altar for a green and got to play an unkicked Primal Growth . Lost when Dragon Guy beat me over the head, of course, but I was impressed with the jankiness I have built into the deck. Cyclonic Rift is a blow-out.
Again, thanks for the input noggynogworld-- as I play the deck, I'm hoping to flesh out the description into something people can look at and understand, since it took me a while to find a deck with a similar theme as this one to compare against and take notes on.

Love this deck! I'm in the process of building a very similar one. I wish thrumming stone weren't so darn expensive! I'm sure when I buy one they'll immediately reprint it, or ban it...
I've compiled a list of cards I'm considering that aren't in your deck. I expect that many of them are cards you either: 1. Thought about and decided against. 2. Didn't want to shell out the cash for, (I feel ya) 3. Don't use in your play group. (I noticed you've got no tutors. A card like Mausoleum Secrets is very affordable and super strong in this deck. If your playgroup or you personally avoid tutors for balance/powerlevel/gameplay reasons, I commend you.) Hopefully there's a card or two in this list that make you say "oooh!", because your deck certainly got that reaction from me! Bloodbond March is INSANE and it's only 50 cents!
If any of these cards are like... aggressively bad, let me know so I don't put them in my deck, haha. I'm assuming you've actually assembled and playtested the deck, whereas I am still residing in the magical christmas land of my mind.
Erebos, God of the Dead
Archfiend of Depravity
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
Butcher of Malakir
Journey to Eternity Flip
Dictate of Erebos
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
I haven't put much thought into what you would cut if you like any of these, aside from Blighted Fen . Once you get Bontu's Monument , Herald's Horn , or Jet Medallion out, Blighted Fen and any basic forests you end up with are gonna feel bad. Initiates of the Ebon Hand and Bog Initiate are spicy ways to fix the issue, but they are also... bad.
Side note: I'm curious how Rancor would be in this deck. It's a weird cost/benefit analysis because of course you want as many rats as possible, but when you can rancor to boost your sac creature +2/+0, then it pops back into your hand every time, it seems like the recursion value might add up. Also allows you to trample through extra damage on one player if they're gaining life. Anyone feel free to explain why Rancor is a dumb idea in this deck :)
