golgari landfall question

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on May 5, 2021, 8:37 p.m. by lordwrath

any reccomendations for golgari landfall? i use mostly cards from zendikar rising and am wondering if there are any other cards from other packs that could help bolster my commander deck. Is there a commander that would be best for this style and color set? and tips would be great. Thanks.

The Gitrog Monster seems great for landfall, especially with cards like Harrow and the fetchlands like Polluted Delta (or Evolving Wilds if you're on a budget).

All of the Zendikar sets like Zendikar, Battle for Zendikar, Rise of the Eldrazi, and Oath of the Gatewatch would do you well to look at.

Ghost Town is super rad, in its own accidentally-for-landfall way.

I don't know how competitive you're going, but I've seen some sick Kodama of the East Tree / Kamahl, Heart of Krosa + Tormod, the Desecrator land decks out there as well.

Part of it is based on how competitive you're going, of course budget, and even playstyle. Gitrog will often be a bit more combo-based, where I'd peg the partners (especially with Kamahl) as more aggressive.

Landfall/lands matter is a HUGE archetype and has cards in most sets out there to the point where for my lands deck, I have trouble deciding what I can take out for new cards since it's so streamlined. You're going to be spoiled for choices with this strategy, and can build it a whole bunch of different ways.

Mcat1999 - No set keywords Landfall; more accurately Zendikar makes it an “ability word”. Ability words are basically glorified reminder text making it easier to quickly identify a thematically repeated mechanic.

I’d love for Wizards to shadow add the ability word to Gatherer searches. It would be much easier just to do a search for “Landfall” rather than have to type out the consistent parts of any ability word’s rules text. The’ll probably not take the time do do that, however, as Landfall is the only one which really sees significant saturation outside of the ability word.
