Yeah, the main utility suggestion is Oran-Rief, the Vastwood since it allows more usability out of Kitchen Finks, Spike Feeder, and even Devoted Druid as a way to store mana.

Mistveil Plains is only a suggestion for the mill matchup as a way to free up the Endurance slot potentially. It's more of an option to keep in the back of your mind than anything, like if you ever want to squeeze in another creature or something.

And finally, I strongly suggest trying out at least Wooded Bastion in your current list. Unless your other land is your singleton Swamp or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth you can utilize it. It also lets you play Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit with a Forest as your first land, or Spike Feeder with Plains as an example. I don't suggest running any more than 2 filter lands, and honestly 1 is probably ideal with the lower land count. If you find yourself liking it, try out the Reflecting Pool next (filter land is more valuable). You'd be surprised at how useful it is becoming an untapped Indatha Triome in a lot of cases, or at least a free dual.

Came across Agadeem's Awakening  Flip which would almost work as a clunky recursion combo assembler if flooded, so I definitely think that is worth considering. Field of Ruin like I mentioned earlier, is solid land hate that replaces itself with a colored manasource. Kazandu Mammoth  Flip / Blackbloom Rogue  Flip / Tangled Florahedron  Flip would be a 'land' that could be found with Collected Company, just be careful of how many tapped lands are included if you decide to include any of those.

Mistveil Plains could help with the mill matchup, and it works to give you a Chord of Calling target if needed, plus it is findable with fetches. Oran-Rief, the Vastwood lets you get a lot out of Kitchen Finks, so it may be worth an inclusion. It would also help if you transition to an aggro strategy during the match.

I've personally always liked Reflecting Pool as a singleton psuedo-mana fixer and one or two of the filter lands (Wooded Bastion / Fetid Heath / Twilight Mire) in 3+ colored decks to alleviate the burden of all the life loss cards (shocks + fetches).

Castle Garenbrig would work as some slow ramp, probably not worth it, but figured I would mention it. Turntimber Grove / Llanowar Reborn would help to get more out of Devoted Druid and the like, although it probably isn't worth coming in tapped (the Grove would sort of be a combat trick when found with Elvish Reclaimer as well). Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip / Emeria's Call  Flip would be some other clunky options, that I just don't think are worth it.

Mana talk:

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?

2 mana rocks like Azorius Signet and Arcane Signet are going be substantially stronger than 3cmc stuff like Selesnya Locket.

DemonDragonJ on How Good are the New …

2 weeks ago

The new Innistrad block provided a new cycle of dual lands (Deathcap Glade, Deserted Beach, and so forth), which I appreciate, and I especially like how WotC printed a full cycle of ten dual lands, rather than half a cycle of five dual lands, as they too often do.

Naturally, I am wondering how those dual lands compare to other cycle of dual lands, so I wish to ask others about their opinions of those lands.

The best dual lands of all are obviously the original dual lands (Bayou, Tundra, Plateau, and so forth), but those are too expensive for all but the most hardcore of players, so I shall not mention them any further in this thread.

After the originals, the second-best dual lands are the shock lands (Hallowed Fountain, Sacred Foundry, Godless Shrine, and so forth), which are nearly as good as the originals, with only a very minor downside.

After that, however, it is difficult to say what the next-best cycle is; I say that the "battle lands" (Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista, and so forth), the "check lands" (Glacial Fortress, Sunpetal Grove, Isolated Chapel, and so forth), and the filter lands (Cascade Bluffs, Wooded Bastion, Sunken Ruins, and so forth) are all contenders for the title of third-best dual lands, so I am not certain where the new Innistrad lands rank in comparison to them.

What does everyone else say about this? How good are the new Innistrad dual lands?

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
2x Forest
1x Plains
1x Island

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)
Wooded Bastion
Flooded Grove
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)
Nimbus Maze
Simic Growth Chamber (maybe it is worth waiting a turn to reuse a land, but probably not in most cases)
River of Tears
Exotic Orchard
Pillar of the Paruns

Okay, so regarding the carddraw i'd suggest you put in the following cards:

Keeper of Fables, Shamanic Revelation, Shapers' Sanctuary Things I would definitely take out: Bloodthirsty Blade, that's something your commander's supposed to do, swap it with swiftfoot boots or greaves or maybe Whispersilk Cloak if you want.

those lands are pretty good, i'd include them: Rockfall Vale, Wooded Bastion, maybe remove Temple of the False God

that's a good tutor: Eladamri's Call

Thanks a lot! Those lands you mentioned look like the thing I was looking for. I will definietly have to check them out.

Until now I was thinking about Wooded Bastion and Rugged Prairie, cause in test games using proxies they worked really well. But the price is pretty high to buy them 2x4. Yours sound like a great substitute.

Will also have to reconsider mana balance using your algorithm. Although if I won’t get scales in opening hand, the key color is white, to cast Arcbound Mouser and Arcbound Prototype. Red becomes useful from turn 3 as you said, so it is just an addition

Now that I’m thinking about it, I think that actually makes it cheaper to get Yavimaya and a bunch of basics rather than full play sets of Temple Garden , Sunpetal Grove , and other lands such as Horizon Canopy , and Wooded Bastion . I might squeeze one Arctic Treeline in place of a Branchloft Pathway  Flip but pathway has been an absolute performer so far. In summary, it may actually be cheaper to go with Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth and trim other duals for basics. Especially once that initial price settles. Get in on it quick though, if you do.
