Thanks for all of the replies!
@WhiteRaven810 - I get the purpose, but I'll put Darksteel Plate
into the maybe pile for now.
@Zauzich - Rumbling Crescendo
just isn't that effective for its high casting cost and it takes too long to get online. Orcish Settlers
, on the other hand, are going in - at least on the sideboard.
@bay_falconer - Very fun combo, but I have too few ways to get that online and artifact removal isn't the purpose of this deck.
@TheMern - GAH! You always suggest a ton of cards I want to use! I must make room for Keldon Firebombers
. I'm lukewarm about Sundering Titan
as I have no way to reuse/abuse him. He probably won't make the cut. Mana Flare
was another form of accel since the average CC is kinda high with this deck but I agree it could go south for me - its out now. I'll see if I can make room for Armillary Sphere
as it is cheaper ($ wise) than Solemn Simulacrum
. Tower of Fortunes
could sit there and rot or it can provide more cards than Mind's Eye
. Now that I think about it avoiding activated card draw artifacts may be the way to go. What about Mercadian Atlas
and/or Well of Discovery
As for the remaining LD cards you mentioned, all are under consideration, especially Wildfire
and Destructive Force
@Disturbed185 - Agreed on Keldon Firebombers, and Epicenter
is another card that is under consideration.
I made a few changes, and have added a sideboard so I can adjust to playing nonbasic heavy vs mono-color with basic lands. Here are my changes so far, with more to come.
Out: Dragon Tyrant
- Great finisher, but doesn't really fit. Mana Flare
- Could easily blow up in my face. Wake of Destruction
- To sideboard.
In: Snow-Covered Mountain
x 2 - 36 lands was too light for this build. Keldon Firebombers
Other: Wake of Destruction
sideboarded and will replace Ruination
when facing decks with few nonbasics. Invader Parasite
sideboarded and will replace Dwarven Blastminer
when facing decks with few nonbasics. Orcish Settlers
sideboarded and will replace Dwarven Miner
when facing decks with few nonbasics.
The same will probably need to occur to Blood Moon
and Magus of the Moon
. Any suggestions there?
Anything that I should take out?
