Recycle and lands

So I picked up a playset of Recycle and want to build a deck with them. Problem is, I don't want to get bogged down with lands in my hand. At first my thoughts went to Retrace, but when I ditch a land to copy a spell, I'm not actually playing a card, so I'm just going down a card. So I turn to the hivemind for help - what's the best way to circumvent this problem?

Maybe Explore for more land drops per turn? Could let you chain your turns for longer, especially since it'll boost your hand size to 3 and let you discard extra lands in order to hold onto gas at the end of your turn.

Worth noting that, if you find any good synergy with black, Null Profusion is a funcionally identical reprint of this card with the color shifted.  

Bro, do you even Autocard?

Autocarding: [c]Cryptic Command[/c] = Cryptic Command

Showing somebody how to autocard: [c[b][/b]]Cryptic Command[/c] = [c]Cryptic Command[/c] = Cryptic Command

When you cast a spell with retrace from your graveyard, you are playing that card, and Recycle will make you draw a card for it.

I'm conducting a Draft experiment in the Limited forums. If you're interested in Draft, come and check it out. We've just openend the third boosters! Your input is always welcome.

(It will go on for several more weeks, probably until end of July)


Once again aced the Rules Advisor test (Feb 2015). (I still make mistakes now and then, but who doesn't.)


"Simple questions" usually need rather complex answers, while complex questions often come down to no more than a simple "yes" or "no".


Oh lordy, I completely misremembered the way retrace worked. I guess I'll be using Recycle with Worm Harvest then!

Abundance is insane with Recycle. Remember your Reliquary Towers have to come down after recycle to reset your hand size from 2 to no limit. Recycle in multiples each trigger every card you play. Azusa, Lost but Seeking and other ways to drop more land really help.

Fastbond works pretty well.
