Horde of Notions


The deck uses wheel effects to disrupt my opponents hand and build up a graveyard of elementals that I can use as a toolbox with Horde of Notions out.


Graveyard Hate - Having cards in the graveyard is one of our key strategies so we need to defend against them becoming exiled.

Leyline of Sanctity and Witchbane Orb are options helps to direct away targeted hate by giving us hexproof I have chosen to run Witchbane Orb as it is easier to cast and we don't need it up at the start. Disallow and Voidslime give us the ability to counter spells or shut down a triggered ability of a Bojuka Bog or something similar.

Fetchlands: Bring out duals with a blue color pair first to get counter mana up. Fetches interact with the following cards: Avenger of Zendikar, Crucible of Worlds, Omnath, Locus of Rage.

Bojuka Bog: Take out others graveyards if they are playing a similar strategy, or before you resolve Living Death. If you have Strip Mine + Crucible of Worlds out Strip Mine your Bojuka Bog to deal with multiple graveyards.

Diamond Valley: Gain life from Lord of Extinction or creatures taken with Roil Elemental

Strip Mine: Take out opponent's land base or combo with Bojuka Bog + Crucible of Worlds to remove graveyards.

This strategy is good for when your graveyard is nice and full of elementals.

You can create a loop that generates infinite colored mana with Avenger of Zendikar in your graveyard and Horde of Notions + Phyrexian Altar + 5 lands producing W U B R G in play.

This is done by sacrificing Avenger of Zendikar and the 5 Plant Tokens created on ETB to Phyrexian Altar and bringing Avenger of Zendikar back with Horde of Notions netting 1 extra mana each time; to gain infinite 0/1 Plant Tokens sacrifice one less per loop after you have enough mana.

Once you have infinite mana your key picks are:

Greenwarden of Murasa Bring anything in your graveyard to your hand and cast
Maelstrom Wanderer Give your infinite 0/1 Plants haste and crack a fetch or play your land for turn
Mulldrifter Draw your deck 2 cards at a time
Omnath, Locus of Rage Burn out your opponents

Creatures: Avenger of Zendikar,Omnath, Locus of Rage,
Enablers: Burgeoning,Crop Rotation,Crucible of Worlds,Life from the Loam,Splendid Reclamation
