Windswept Heath Discussion
3 days ago
, I ran about 8 1v1 games this past weekend with some of the card swaps you recommended while the rest were on the way. I think pulling 3 basic plains from the deck may be too much. We only have 5 Plains sources to fetch and with Archaeomancer's Map, Knight of the White Orchid, Loyal Warhound, Arid Mesa, Flooded Strand, Windswept Heath that can only fetch plains, we would need 7 Plains sources to grab. Some games it wouldn't matter but I found myself with no lands to fetch in one pretty early on, so my fetches were dead in the water. Also not a big fan of Exotic Orchard since I don't find myself needing other colors. We don't have a way to recur other player's cards now and if they don't play black or white it's pretty bad for us. My thoughts are either we need to cut down more on the Plains fetch to introduce more synergy or rebalance the mana base. Out of our current fetches I found Archaeomancer's Map to be the most disappointing, probably because I didn't play against green. What would you swap out for artifact & enchantment removal like Return to Dust if you're going up against light stax?

Hey, well done for your first three color deck with partners. Nice start and work in progress. Some good ideas and cards here, other than the obvious staples like Sol, Arcane, Tower, Swords, Farseek, Cultivate, etc.
Nice Fetch lands, Plunderer, Ghave, Beledros, Altar, Dawn, Wake, Intervention, Inkshield, Artist, Blot, Ranger, Remembrance, Damn, Infestation. I see win condition combos of Ghave + Altar + Artist and Life/Limb + Sporemound, but you could expand on token combos if that's the direction you want to go.
Six excellent lands here make up a large portion of the budget, the rest is fairly low budget thus my suggestions will be for lower budget. If I'm wrong about this and you would prefer more pricey options let me know.
My first comment is advice to improve on the basic structure (lands, ramp and draw). If you're interested in me continuing with more advice in other areas I can in another comment. Three areas to consider improving are amount of lands/color fixing from lands, more draw and more ramp.
- Mentor of the Meek --> Bad Moon
- Tireless Provisioner --> Transcendent Master
- Shamanic Revelation --> Killian, Ink Duelist
- Murmuring Bosk --> Glorious Anthem
- Woodland Chasm --> Vorpal Sword
- Snowfield Sinkhole --> Dramatic Finale
- Oketra's Monument
- Rite of Harmony
- Sandsteppe Citadel
- Caves of Koilos
- High Market
- Canopy Vista
- Evolving Wilds
- Terramorphic Expanse
32 lands is low amount with only 8 ramp sources. Consider adding some lands, at least 3 more and add at least 3 more ramp sources? 21 basic lands is a lot for a three color deck, that makes color fixing subpar from lands. By cutting a few basic lands for more dual lands it will help color fixing. You're playing green which gives you access to many different ramp options such as Tireless Provisioner who creates tokens. Take advantage of ramp when playing green.
Mentor of the Meek and Provisioner are helpful three drops for tokens because of their repeatable effects. Mentor and Shamanic Revelation take advantage of tokens for draw. You're creating 1/1 tokens which Prava makes them 2/5 when they enter the battlefield, but that's still 2 power for Mentor to be a repeatable draw source.
I see Verdant Catacombs and Windswept Heath which are great as well as Farseek, but I only see Temple Garden as the dual land these Fetch lands/Farseek can get. Consider adding a few more lands that the Fetch lands can get such as Murmuring Bosk? Farseek can get a black source from Woodland Chasm or Snowfield Sinkhole.
For some cuts, the cards I've chosen for you to consider are less impactful then others in your deck. Creatures who all they have is lifelink are not worth playing because you can get life from other sources that do much more. Transcendent Master is not worth the mana investment into it for what you eventually get.
Bad Moon is subpar because you don't have enough black creatures and the majority of token creatures are not black, they're white or green especially since Prava only creates white creatures. Dramatic Finale mana cost is too difficult to consistently make with three colors and only nontoken dies. Other anthems such as Glorious Anthem are fine since it affects all creatures you control, but in my opinion are not worth a card spot since all it does is +1/+1 pump.
Black in my opinion is better as a splash color here with dual lands and a few basic Swamps since green and white give you much more for tokens and life gain strategies. It takes a lot of black mana for Vorpal Sword to have a good effect which without a lot of treasures or more color fixing help will be too difficult to make.
Would you like me to continue with more advice? Good luck with your deck.

Minimizing taplands is generally good but expensive (as you know). Plan to eventually replace stuff like the Vivids, snow-duals, and whatever the shorthand for Transguild Promenade is (which, btw, this is twice as slow as a normal tapped land and should 100% be replaced). Yes, even eventually replace the 'gain 1 life' lands that I love :(
I don't know the exact recommended land count. I see as low as 29 (with lots of 0cmc extra expensive cards) and as high as low 40s. I've been targeting 35ish with another 7-8 mana rocks, but I'm not in Green. In Green, you can run 2cmc ramp spells instead of 2cmc mana rocks. like Rampant Growth, Sakura-Tribe Elder, and Farseek.
With all of your land-tutor creatures, make sure you have enough targets. Since you're Chulane, erring on more lands overall might be better?

If you truly want it to be aggro I would lower the curve a bit. Skyhunter Skirmisher isn't that great and pretty slow, I recommend Adorned Pouncer. It's only two mana, and has an eternalize ability to get a 4/4 double strike late game.
I highly recommend splashing red, for the best one drop aggro cat of all time Wild Nacatl. It also gives you access to 4x Lightning Bolt which you probably want, and maybe some other classic zoo cards like Atarka's Command.
Conclave Tribunal is most definitely not what you want to running for removal in an aggro deck. The card is quite slow, and tapping your creatures to cast it means you can't attack with those creatures. If you stay in GW i recommend Path to Exile, and if you splash red I'd run Prismatic Ending to supplement bolt.
The manabase needs work. 25 lands is a lot, even for control decks. Definitely way too many here. I recommend around 22. You probably want more duals as well. I don't know what your budget is, but here are some reasonably priced duals: Overgrown Farmland, Branchloft Pathway Flip. If you're trying to keep the deck pretty budget I wouldn't bother running snarl lands and would run these two duals instead.

Ok, here's a landbase to try out (tried not to change too much and make it work a little better life-wise while still maintaining the ability to get most any color combination by the turn you need it):
1x Reflecting Pool
1x Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth
1x Ketria Triome
1x Zagoth Triome
1x Breeding Pool
1x Stomping Ground
1x Temple Garden
3x Windswept Heath
3x Wooded Foothills
1x Misty Rainforest
Below can be 4 of anything from fast lands like you have now to vivid lands etc. I'll just list a few + lesser options in case you like any, but the core is above. You should concentrate on having access to then / then then lastly (couple exceptions which I explained). I tried to put them in order of relevance.
Vivid Grove (there's other vivid lands, this is the green one though, and you don't want many tapped lands)
Fire-Lit Thicket (there's other of this cycle, but this is first choice because it will help with your costs)
Barkchannel Pathway Flip
Branchloft Pathway Flip
Temple of Mystery (lots of temple options, sometimes the scry is worth the tapped land)
Hengegate Pathway Flip
Cragcrown Pathway Flip
Grove of the Burnwillows
Lair of the Hydra (manland that you could transform at low cost, or large beater for endgame)
Simic Growth Chamber (maybe it is worth waiting a turn to reuse a land, but probably not in most cases)
River of Tears
Pillar of the Paruns

Doing it without Tron lands could give you a brew that looks very similar to existing Soulherder archtypes (just without Soulherder)... something like this might be almost-competitive (although at this point, it's a very different list to what you're trying to achieve, so not sure if this is the route you'd want to go down):
- 4x Panharmonicon
- 4x Noble Hierarch
- 4x Coiling Oracle
- 4x Ice-Fang Coatl
- 4x Eternal Witness
- 1x Venser, Shaper Savant
- 1x Acidic Slime
- 1x Thragtusk
- 1x Hornet Queen
- 4x Ephemerate
- 3x Counterspell
- 3x Force of Negation
- 4x Path to Exile
- 4x Snow-Covered Forest
- 4x Snow-Covered Island
- 2x Snow-Covered Plains
- 1x Temple Garden
- 1x Hallowed Fountain
- 2x Flooded Strand
- 2x Misty Rainforest
- 2x Windswept Heath
- 4x Prismatic Vista
