I generally prefer a more controlling style of play; however, that's not to say I don't build aggressive decks or combo decks. I generally pick a theme (usually a card or two to try and break or possibly a few if it's EDH) and build the deck from there. That pretty much sums up my style of play and how I go about building decks. Feel free to browse my decks, comment, and if you feel inclined to, +1.

Feel free to ask for help on decks too, I'll try to offer as much advise as possible.

Thanks for stopping by.

Actually thinking third reclaimer and cutting something for it (maybe a grazer or maybe something else) since it is such an all star with the new land.

First time I’m excited for a new set in a while, almost makes up for all the poor decisions that have been made recently by Hasbro which made me question the future of mtg.

I’ve found explore to be a very underwhelming card personally.

I'll be going with Tyrranax Rex instead of Carnage Tyrant probably. This seems so much better since it has haste and toxic (pseudo answer to "infinite" lifegain). Instead of waiting a turn to attack with Carnage Tyrant, you just pay one more and swing right away. This seems like a net positive for a slightly worse "hexproof"

Would the newly spoiled Tyvar, Jubilant Brawler possibly have a spot as a wish target? I think it's very flexible card overall, but I don't see too many tap abilities in here, so it may not be useful enough in the current shell.

Seemed to have potential as a card, so figured I'd mention it.

so I am currently thinking:

-1 Lair of the Hydra
-1 Fae of Wishes
+2 The Mycosynth Gardens

Not really sure if there's any other cuts I want to make for it, but feel free to look at my Card Choices > Weakest Cards section if anyone wants to make arguments for any further cuts.

Not quite sure how I missed this when it was first spoiled, but The Mycosynth Gardens seems to be an auto-include of some kind (I am not sold on it being 4 copies since it is a colorless source, and I need untapped green sources).


The Mycosynth Gardens

Land - Sphere : Add .

, : Add one mana of any color.

, : The Mycosynth Gardens becomes a copy of target nontoken artifact you control with mana value .

As the Invasion Tree grew, its branches pierced through the world's silent core.


This would allow some more turn 2/3 lines, and be a fetchable second copy of Amulet of Vigor with Elvish Reclaimer or Primeval Titan. However, since it is a colorless source, I have to be careful not to cut too many untapped green sources for it.
