    After some tests, I think , it’s worth it ! The flexibility of the card , compense the 3 mana cost !

    How about Aquitect's Will in a Simic build instead of Spreading Seas, because we don't need the devotion off of the enchantment? Obviously, it does not colorscrew the opponent, but it is cheaper and thus lower to the ground, which is exactly the plan of MerfolkJoe's list and is also what Nikachu often sais in his videos. What do you think?

    i really like that it's a cantrip, and the 1-mana cost is relevant in a deck filled with 2-drops. I'd probably consider it over sea's claim in the simic version if I wanted to go 8-seas or 6-seas effects in the maindeck.
    Also, it triggers Merrow Reejerey.


    The problem with this card I think , is that you don’t denial the land you choose , it just add the island unless sea’s claim ! And the color/land denial is almost as important than the fact that it gives us the possibility to break through

    PS : sorry for my miserable english writing

    As far as mana goes, I'd advice playing the same manabase as the list I posted a few weeks ago here except with white instead of black obviously.
    Verdict is much harder to cast than wrath, looks greedy. Playing 7 sweeper looks like a lot too.
    Otherwise Ranger's Path is worse than Hunting wilds, which in my opinion is worse than Cultivate/Kodama's Reach.


    I personaly prefer hunting wilds to cultivate/kodama because the 2 lands are put directly in play , and you can take land other than Basic wich is good in a 4 color deck ! This only the feeling that I have

    7 sweeper seems a bit much I totally agree ! I think droping 1 verdict is good

    If you have a lot of skred player in your area , you can try "Mark of Asylum" in the side board ! It works well a deck with only damage spells !

    Hi! Went 5-0 in local tournament :

    The deck is sweet! Love the fact that you can put pressure and disruption at the same time; nebelghast was very strong against smasher and big creature when you want to race !

    Round 1 : Merfolks
    Round 2 : EldraTron
    Round 3 : Living end ( with the new cycling)
    Round 4 : Living end ( again... )
    Round 5 : 4c PW ( he was 4-0 ??? Is this a deck ? :p just trolling Wink )

    Loved to play this kind of aggro tempo shell , the green make the deck lot more powerful I think ! The nobles gives us access to spell queller/geist on turn 2 with is important some matchups; and company can turn a board around !

    Inconventionnal side for the white one : 0 baloth ? Against jund/abzan and burn, is blessed alliance better ?!

    Both played colossus for the DS matchup I gess , interesting , never thought about it !

    What do you think of those sideboards ?

    Sweltering Suns deals 3 damage to each creature.

    Hi, what do you think about this card ?

    It can give us the tempo we need and protect the combo when we’re gonna go !

    Bad Idea?

    Hello ! With the number of deathshadow deck's in the meta , isn't leyline a good sidebord card ? ( they play 10 and more dicard card )

    Thanks

    I’ll try to respond :p

    Kozilek’s Return can be found with ancient stirrings unlike firespout/pyroclasm ! That’s the main interest of the card, I think. The instant speed is good against nexus, etc... In his version he plays 3 SSG so the 3ccm isn’t much of a problem I guess ?

    Hope it helps Wink

    I think you should consider pulse of Murasa, against burn you can win 6 life and take back a snapcaster to play it again or a baloth if the opponent killed it or even a sakura to chump !

    Hello Daviusminimus , I totally agree with you the turn 2 kill is less than 1% but the Turn 2 kill , you don’t need the sakura-tribe scout , you can do it like this :
    Turn 1 , untap land + 1 amulet
    Turn 2 , a) for one mana a 2nd amulet
    b) bounce land -> 4 mana into azusa
    c) you can land twice the bounce land -> 8 mana
    d) Titan into double +2/+0 haste into sunhome double strike
    e) 20 damage if the opponent don’t have a creature

    It takes 6 cards so one less ^^

    For tolaria , I’m not sure , but it’s gives your titan another on if stp or terminus is played so I want to play it!

    Full 4 of elvish is to maximize the turn 2 titan even turn 1 :p maybe it’s too much...
    The needle is a dead card in very few match up you can use it for : wasteland, deathrite shaman , top , sword/jitte , vial , rishadan, inkmoth, liliana, jace , sneak , griselbrand , etc....

    Between ancient stirrings and brainstorm, I would choose ponder :p

    Hello, I play Titan post in Legacy , but the Idea of playing amulet titan is very attractive ^^ so i’ll try too help too

    First I think you need pithing needle MD , wasteland is such bad card for us and crop don’t always do the job at the right time Smile

    Here is my list , with yours as reference Smile

    1 Bojuka Bog
    1 Boros Garrison
    1 Dark Depths
    1 Glacial Chasm
    1 Maze of Ith
    1 Selesnya Sanctuary
    1 Slayers' Stronghold
    1 Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion
    1 Thespian's Stage
    2 City of Brass
    3 Forest
    3 Gruul Turf
    3 Tolaria West
    4 Gemstone Mine
    4 Simic Growth Chamber
    4 Elvish Spirit Guide
    4 Primeval Titan
    3 Pithing Needle
    4 Amulet of Vigor
    4 Exploration
