Worldly Tutor Discussion

LandoLRodriguez on Windy Kitty's Landfall Engine

Changes, 03Aug2020:

-4 Forest, +2 Snow-Covered Forest, +1 Snow-Covered Mountain, +1 Snow-Covered Swamp. Adding the snow lands gives a slightly better chance at turning on Field of the Dead sooner with no downside. Slightly changed basic land balance.

-1 Burgeoning, +1 Worldly Tutor. Just running the playtesting made two things clear: Burgeoning isn't going to pay off all that much, and the deck needs either Crucible of Worlds or Ramunap Excavator to make it into play to get the engine churning. Adding the tutor will ensure that will happen more reliably. The Gitrog Monster is also pretty important to find too, so I'm likely going to find spots for the Demonic Tutor anyway as well as a Chord of Calling.

Now that the entire set has been revealed, the lack of reprints of Imperial Seal, Worldly Tutor, Akroma's Memorial, Vedalken Orrery, and Cabal Coffers are some very glaring exclusions, but I shall maintain hope for them being reprinted in Commander Legends, later, this year. On the other side, another reprint of Imperial Recruiter is always welcome, and I got my wish for Riku of Two Reflections being reprinted! He looks so awesome in the new card frame! Also, on that subject, the alternate artwork by Richard Kane Ferguson on Toxic Deluge is wonderful, as it is that old-school fantasy art that this game had in its early days, but has not seen in quite some time; the fact that WotC was able to get both Ferguson and Baxa to illustrate new artwork was quite impressive; if only the could have convinced Rebecca Guay to draw something new for them. Having said that, I noticed that Todd Lockwood, Ron Spencer, and Steve Argyle have not illustrated any new artwork for this game in some time; I hope that they have not lost interest in doing that. Also, I am rather sad that Riku did not have alternate artwork, but at least he was reprinted.

Overall, I am very pleased and impressed with this set; it did not contain every card that I desired, but I did not expect it to. Some players have been complaining about it, but I feel that the positive traits of this set outweigh its negative traits. The price of the sealed product is definitely a very major problem, but the only way to protest that is to not purchase it and instead purchase singles only. Hopefully, WotC shall realize that blatantly overpricing products is a poor business practice, and shall cease doing that in the future.

I’m hoping tomorrow includes any of the following: Worldly Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal or Force of Will. The rest of the sword cycle would also be nice, and fetches would break the set, but we can still wish.

Never thought of that. Just don't buy Masters or any old set. Just look at the price of Ponder, or god forbid Cabal Coffers or the Sixth Edition Worldly Tutor.

Interesting appraisals.

I can easily see swapping in Atarka, World Render for Rampaging Brontodon. Atarka, World Render used to be in the deck. These two creatures have the same converted mana cost, but Atarka, World Render includes flying and double strike and will always deal more combat damage than Rampaging Brontodon with Xenagos, God of Revels, unless we have more than ten lands under our control. By that time, the game should be over. This is a reasonable consideration.

Replacing Mana Geyser with Heroic Intervention is also reasonable. I haven't had difficulty utilizing the mana produced by Mana Geyser, early-game or late-game. Heroic Intervention does add a layer of protection unlike anything else in the deck. This swap could work. I'm willing to experiment.

I don't remember a time I whiffed on Summoning Trap. With 26 creatures currently in the deck, the odds of hitting at least one are in our favor. The instant-speed of this spell has been attractive as well. The overall return on the investment of six mana (with so many creatures in our deck that cost 6 CMC or more) is worthy of its deck slot. I prefer its inclusion.

The continued inclusion of Chord of Calling may have been an oversight on my part. Without the presence of Gaea's Cradle and a swarm of tokens, casting Chord of Calling to flash-in a now absent Craterhoof Behemoth seems misguided. It will be difficult to take advantage of its convoke mechanic. We want our creatures tapping for combat, not tapping in order to cast a spell. As my only copy of Worldly Tutor is spoken for, I will need to look in a different direction. Perhaps including Savage Ventmaw or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth?

Not a fan of Worldspine Wurm? Your assessment is correct: I'm never casting this for . HOWEVER, with Sneak Attack, Summoning Trap, Quicksilver Amulet, Tooth and Nail and Selvala's Stampede I'll never have to. Worldspine Wurm's performance has been spectacular and I am unable to justifiably remove it from the deck list at this time. It has been too good.

Participating in an EDH/Commander game without seeing at least one Superfriends deck has become as rare as winter roses for me. Star of Extinction has been a great way to deal with planeswalkers. Destroying a solitary land is nothing ground-breaking. I am not a proponent of land destruction. However, Maze of Ith is way too popular and I never bore of destroying it and then wiping the board. There's a lot of tribal in my meta and sending 20 damage everywhere helps to keep the battlefield clear. I used to run Starstorm. The instant-speed potential of Starstorm is great. Holding up mana to cast it instead of casting spells during my turn is not great. Questing Beast is definitely a bad mamma jamma. Perhaps I can find room for Questing Beast by swapping it in for one of the aforementioned unfavorable cards...?

Hmmm, well, to summarize:

I plan to keep Worldspine Wurm, Summoning Trap and Star of Extinction in the current deck list. They are quite helpful and have proven their usefulness historically in my meta.

I will definitely play-test and game-play a swap of Rampaging Brontodon for Atarka, World Render. This should not be a difficult transition, as previously mentioned.

I can Tinker with an exchange of Mana Geyser for Heroic Intervention. Perhaps the added protection will prove to be more beneficial than the somewhat pricey ramp spell. We shall see.

I will remove Chord of Calling from the deck. As stated, I believe it was an oversight to leave it in the deck list. Perhaps Questing Beast can take its place. I like that idea.

Thanks for the evaluation!

Glad to see you enjoyed the changes, and yes, Etali puts in work!! Couple more comments, not sure if previously mentioned but...

  1. Rampaging Brontodon - I know you like this card but I find Atarka, World Render better. More damage, more evasion, works with the few other dragons you have. I think its a superior upgrade, thoughts?

  2. Worldspire Wurm - I know you like this card as your finisher, maybe I can't convince you otherwise but I'll sure as hell try. Unless you cheat it out with 2 few cheating cards that arent mana intensive, then you rarely cast this. Do you really get up to 11 mana that easily in most games? I find this very eh? The worms it leaves behind are nice (assuming no exile/bounce effects), but I think you would be better suited with a lower costed creature that still is in your game plan such as Savage Ventmaw? I'm not telling you to run aggravated, but ventmaw is very helpful in establishing tempo, something that Xenagos decks don't have much of. By getting the attack trigger, you could (as I have done multiple times) use a rishkar's expertise or a return of the wildspeaker to get some card draw. If not savage ventmaw and you're looking for another beater, why not Kozilek, Butcher of Truth? I mentioned him before because unless you are primarily cheating in creatures, he costs less, gives you card draw and is more of an immediate threat with annihlator.

  3. Mana Geyser - Without commet storm, is there a point to this? Doesn't seem good without reiterate, which you shouldn't add either. Plus it's only red mana and very dependent on opponents. Would replace with something else. Again, I hype up deflecting swat, but another good card is Heroic Intervention. Pretty cheap and works well against almost all types of removal. Doesn't have to be any of these, could be stuff in your maybeboard

  4. Chord of Calling - Without tokens, this is not that great. I would put in Worldly Tutor or something else instead. Although I feel you have enough tutors?

  5. Summoning Trap - Idk how prevalent blue is in your meta, but I never liked this card. Too much whiff potential even though you look at 7. Would rather have another beater or more card draw

  6. Star of Extinction - Eh? Are planeswalkers prevalent in the meta or problematic lands an issue? I feel questing beast and strip mine could solve both those issues. Rather add a card that benefits your game plan as you already have enough wipes IMO.

Yes, Worldly Tutor is... ahem... casual... Anyhow, Crush Contraband could be swapped for Beast Within.

davidsays1, I fully agree with you about Worldly Tutor, as it is the only card from its cycle that has not been reprinted, recently.

tpmains, what about Doubling Cube? That card would be perfect in this set.
