Really cruel ultimatium? Also does domain mean that you can't count for rav duals in ext?

I totaly missed Matca Rioters in the build that I made. Good call on that. How has Joiner Adept done in your testing? I did not run her in my build with all of the Firesprout,Wrath of God, Infest, and Volcanic Fallout going around. Also I was playing Incinerate for burn and removal. I also wanted to try Shard Convergence. I think that with a little more ramp you could run all four Exploding Boarders. Also I wanted to try 2 Resounding Thunder.

Prismatic Omen seems good on paper. I think that I would cut 1-2 though. I also like Terramorphic Expanse. It has tested well for this type of deck.

Banefire is nuts!

This is my current build.

4 [10E] Terramorphic Expanse
8 [ALA] Forest (4)
4 [ALA] Mountain (3)
4 [ALA] Plains (2)
1 [ALA] Island (2)

// Creatures
4 [ALA] Wild Nacatl
4 [EVE] Figure of Destiny
4 [ALA] Woolly Thoctar
4 [CNF] Matca Rioters
4 [ALA] Ranger of Eos

// Spells

2 [CNF] Banefire

// Sideboard

I just dont see this being viable in this format


In extended it is fine because you can fetch for your DUAL lands that count as 2..

However, not being able to fetch, and only being able to use single lands seems to hurt this deck too much

best case scenerio your going to start your hand with 3-4 different lands, a wild nac. and a figure of destiny and something else...

I play shards limited every tuesday night. And.. I know running 3 different types of lands in a 40 card deck kills you about 30% of the games. You get mana screwed so hard. I dont know why someone would put themselves through that in constructed.

Whats the best first 3 turns this deck can do?

1 ) Land ( plains )> Figure
2 ) Land ( Forest ) > Wild Nacatl ( 2/2 ) - Pump figure ( 2/2)
3) Land ( mount ) > Wolly Thoctar..


Now thats if you have those 6 cards, those 3 lands ( expanse is okay, but...not that great since you can only run 4 )

Kithkin:

turn 1 : 2/2
turn 2: cenn
turn 3 : another cenn and a nother 2/2 for 1..

I mean, for being aggro, its not going to be fast enough because your going to get held back by lands a huge part of the time.


Oh, 4 [CNF] Matca Rioters seems terrible....

if you play him on turn three, hes a 3/3 at best. more likely a 2/2

and at max hes a 5/5... on turn 5... I think theres better creatures out there

As to r3wind, terramorhpic expanse always messes up my tempo, so as of now i dont think i will run it. As for joiner, im ify on the main reason is to get 8x cards for color fixingbut it always is the first target for removal, still it seems necessary.

I also like the Wild Nacatl on one into Rampant Growth on two into turn three Ajani V then Exploding Boarders or Voices from the Void on four!

Just have to keep them off of Cryptic Command mana!

Voices from the Void at least should be on the sideboard.
