Quote from DobesEver thought about Academy Rector to solve your seismic assault being too mana intensive issue?
Quote from Blinking Spirit »Farewell! and if a truer theory's thine,
Impart it candidly; if not, use mine.
Horace, Epistles I.6.66-7. The translation owes some debt to Philip Francis...
Quote from MockingbirdMost of your creatures are green, so why not try Green Sun's Zenith?
Quote from LimDul945I support this inclusion. I run a GSZ in my own Rith Lands build, and I love it. Accelerate with a Dryad Arbor on t1 (in my build). Removal with Acidic Slime or Qasali Pridemage (in my build). Recursion with Eternal Witness. More tutoring with Knight of the Reliquary.
You don't run all of the support that I do, but I still think you'd find it quite worth it in your deck.
Quote from gromgrom- Ad Nauseam +Zuran Orb
Ad Nauseam, while useful, hurts more than helps. Like when it was in standard and extended, we dont use enough 0 and 1 cost spells and mana to take advantage of it. I would hurt myself for 15 life to draw 4-10 cards. Meh. Too variable without Scroll Rack, and basically, Glacial Chasm hurts us so much that Ad Nauseam was counterproductive.
Zuran Orb allows us to sacrifice lands that will die anyway, and gain some life to help with Glacial Chasm. It's not bad, especially since we run Crucible.
Quote from MockingbirdIf you're cutting Ad Nauseam, that opens up your curve to entirely new Shenanigans because you don't have to warry about trading blood to get them such as planeswalkers (Garruk Wildspeaker, any Jace... ever, any Liliana, Nicol Bolas, Karn Libertated, Elspeth, Venser, etc.), especially Koth of the Hammer given you pull out Prismatic Omen. Granted I understand you wanted to keep the curve low to keep doing multiple things in one turn... but you can move the curve slightly higher now.
P.S. Consecrated Sphinx (or Sphinx's Revelation if you want to stick with a One shot effect) > Ad Nauseam
Quote from Throst54....Why would you cuz Ad nauseaum? Its easily the best card in the deck.
You draw till you hit manabond, drop all lands into play or just straight up win with Seismic Assault
Quote from Throst54Ad naseum definitely isnt good with beseech the queen lol now that i look at your decklist more thoughrally
Have you tried out Treasure Hunt? It'll atleast let you draw 4-5 cards.
Another thing you can do is use Thespian Stage to make a copy of glacial chasm (or maze of ith) to be able to reset the upkeep to 2 life w/o having to sac a land.
Have you tried borb 2.0 and manabond? They both make Sunder nutty good.
Quote from Throst54sun titan can be recurred your lands and recurrs almost every permanent in your deck.
I still think you try to play too many cute interactions and just need to play more lands.
Quote from Throst54The general idea is the same.
establish control of the board and then have a combo finish that one shots one or more players.
The main difference is that you run a lot more nonland permanents.
I just noticed the reclaim... how is that working out for you? do you ever wish it was just straight up regrowth?
Noxious Revival is strictly better, no?
