Quote from GloriousGoose »Quote from dcovino »Mana-producing LandsDang, only 32 mana producing lands? That seems incredibly low. Do you find yourself consistently missing land drops in the early game? You do run the larger rocks that I don't, so maybe that mitigates missing the drops in the mid and late game a bit.
How have the bigger rocks like Dynamo and Lotus been working for you? I mean, obviously at least pretty decently since you still run them, but I've never tried them in Erebos. Outside of specific decks like Daretti and Paradox Engine combo. I'm a little skeptical about running expensive ramp since when I have 4-5 mana available is when I'm ready to start dropping permanents that affect the game state. All that said, the deck is very mana hungry and having big boosters that don't rely on lands could be very good.

Quote from ketoglutarato »Maybe coco is the wrong answer to a right question: i feel the deck tends to often run out of gas quickly, it feels the only problem of the deck as it's the only "flaw" that makes it lose games, maybe more cycling lands is the way to go? I'd trade a bit of manageable pain with more gas, at the point that im thinking running also waterlogged grove
Also: in the current meta i miss a solid sideboard card in rest in peace
Quote from GloriousGoose »Toxic Deluge is far superior to Dead of Winter, yes, but why not run both? If you only have one spot obviously it goes to Toxic Deluge, but Dead of Winter could be an excellent supplemental removal spell and is well worth testing in my opinion. Three mana is just such a great price for a scaling wrath effect, but maybe mana cost is somewhat irrelevant in a deck that can generate so much mana.
On another note, Glacial Chasm is hilarious. Not only do some decks just automatically lose to it due to not being able to answer it, it interacts wonderfully with Pestilence/Withering Wisps.
Quote from ketoglutarato »i wonder if we can build humans in bant colors only: the losses of freebooter and mantis rider are so bad that not even collected company and better sideboard can equal?
I'm looking at a list like this:

4 Noble Hierarch4 Champion of the Parish4 Thalia's Lieutenant4 Meddling Mage4 Unsettled Mariner4 Phantasmal Image4 Reflector Mage1 Eternal Witness4 Collected Company3 Path to Exile3 Aether Vial3 Horizon Canopy3 Waterlogged Grove4 cavern of souls4 Windswept Heath1 Misty Rainforest1 Temple Garden1 Breeding Pool1 Hallowed Fountain1 Island1 Forest1 PlainsSideboard4 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben2 Collector Ouphe3 Knight of Autumn3 Rest in Peace3 Damping Sphere
btw, we could make a splash for a color, but i personally like the manabase
Quote from GloriousGoose »Modern Horizons is here and with it comes a very important question: is it time to play Snow-Covered Swamps?
Quote from SmauG »Wat does everybody think of Unsettled Mariner as another Thalia. This looks like it's a sweet addition for a similar effect and could maybe let us trim the Legendary Human, which is awkward in multiples, whereas this one is great in multiples.
Copying this with Phantasmal Image is also sweet vs removal heavy decks. It's a shame the copy can't protect itself.
What's the opinion on Mana Web?
Necromancy or Dance of the Dead are going as well.
, but luckily there's always good ol' fashioned politicking. It's not that difficult to frame the blue player as the bad guy, even if you're the Prince of ******* Darkness.
Oh boy, The Abyss. Obviously, I'm jealous. And yeah, many MBC lists tend towards a particular style of play, even if the card choices to get there are a little different. How has Choice of Damnations been?
Underworld Dreams is kind of a pet favorite, but the damage per mana investment is impressive when dropped in the early and mid game or when playing against card draw heavy decks. It's also a cheap devotion enabler for when Erebos needs to become a blocker.
Quote from GloriousGoose »It's been almost a year since I posted in this thread, but I've been steadily making improvements to both the list and the original post. I'm slowly working towards getting it in shape to be a primer but it's taking awhile due to me being busy in other aspects of life and I'm trying to muster the resolve to finish it.
Does anyone have any feedback on the would-be primer thus far? Or does anyone have any deck suggestions? It's pretty rude and tuned already but I'm always looking for new spice.
