Thanks for the comment! I've toyed around with the idea of animating lands in this deck, but ultimately opted out of it. I'll reconsider.

The one thing that I worry about is card draw. This deck can easily play its hand out quickly, so I am thinking about including either Seer's Sundial or Horn of Greed as additional sources. I am just not sure what to cut.

Hi there,

I used to run a Sygg deck myself a few years back. Ninja's are a fine route to go, but the most important things that I discovered was how hard it was getting Sygg to trigger on opponents turns and the necessity to be able to withstand some table hate. Some cards that I found to be quite powerful in my old deck were:

Illusionist's Gambit - Such an underrated card which can save you in a pinch and force a Sygg trigger

Dulcet Sirens - Can force someone into attacking with the benefit you getting to chose whom they attack

Pestilence - A lot of times people will incidentally lose 1-2 life during their turn due to fetch or shock lands. Pestilence lets you get that 1-2 extra damage needed to trigger Sygg

Undermine - Counter anything and then draw a card

Any of Dauthi Embrace/Whispersilk Cloak/Key to the City/Keeper of Keys - Giving unblockable to whoever needs it

Smuggler's Copter - Flying 3/3 that loots and can be crewed by just about any creature

Some new cards that came out after my build that could find a home in Sygg are:

Loyal Subordinate - 3 guaranteed damage on your turn with Sygg out.

Rankle, Master of Pranks - It has 3 power, it flies, and you can always come out ahead with his discard ability if Sygg is on the battlefield. Oh, and he is basically a legal Braids, Cabal Minion

RNR_Gaming - I stand corrected, it looks like the VIP case are approaching $400, but still most places around me are selling boxes for $350 and the TCG price on average is $340 which means some people are selling it for much higher. There is also the issue of a lot of stores not receiving allocations which only further increases the box price in some areas.

By the way, I find the comment about this set being for the edh player amusing. What player does a $16 booster pack target beside the collectors? It certainly doesn't target limited players who would likely draft the hell out of this set if it didn't cost them $60 for a single draft. It doesn't target your average EDH player since the high price point will likely prevent this set from being opened in mass and thus individual card prices will remain high. I'm sorry, but this set is 100% greed driven by WotC trying to rip off a player base starving for reprints.

I know this thread is for enjoying the spoilers so I apologize for being a Debby-downer. But I am growing sick and tired of how WotC is abusing its players. This set, alongside some other behaviors over the past couple years has really bothered me. I'll shut up now and let everyone enjoy the rest of the spoilers.

RNR_Gaming: Sadly I have a hard time seeing EV reach the cost of a box, let alone surpass it. Boxes are going for about $400 and the box topper value will likely tank thanks to the presence of the VIP boosters.

This set has some really awesome reprints. Under normal circumstances I would be ecstatic about a set like this, but I find it hard to give Double Masters any praise when everything else about it is a complete train wreck. This is the first time that I have ever wished for a Magic the Gathering product to fail miserably.

Hi there. This looks like a pretty tight (and obnoxious :p ) list. You already run Arcane Lighthouse, but have you also considered Shadowspear to get around indestructible? Detection Tower is another option to remove hexproof. Lastly, if you want to be extremely degenerate, Horobi, Death's Wail would be gross in a deck like this.

+1 from me

Comment incoming shortly 1empyrean.

So here is a possible new permutation of my Lands deck. I've been toying around the idea of swapping out Lord Windgrace as the commander and replacing him with Mina and Denn, Wildborn. I am trying Mina and Denn out mainly because they are less threatening than Windgrace and I could re-purpose some cards for my Glissa deck. Plus I found that most of the finishers are the same or I have found a like-for-like replacement (i.e. Tunneling Geopede in place of Retreat to Hagra). I am posting it here to get some other eyes on the deck and to hear thoughts/opinions on the switch. Thanks in advance.
