@davidlemon said in Life from the Loam in Dredge:

Always felt like I needed to maximize game 1 since games 2 and 3 can be so tough.

while this feeling is understandable, in many game 1s your deck could contain literal ham sandwiches and, provided you correctly noted the lunchmeats on your decklist, you would still very much be the favorite. so there's a lot of space in the average dredge list, I might say 16 cards or so and Lance might say 30, in terms of what you can have maindeck and still win game 1 due to the mechanical superiority of the deck. it's possible you're trading percentages, but going down 5% in game 1s to be up 10% in each postboard game, to make up numbers, would certainly be worth it.

@neo_altoid you have infinite life. what then?

@rat3de it's fairly feasible to just throw a loam or two, a pit or two, and a portal in a normal dredge deck, as you're already playing 4 bloodghast.

@volrathxp I'm assuming city of brass is just for lack of owning mana confluence? given the presence of portal the difference matters

@rat3de it doesn't necessarily dodge most hate; it dodges cage and priest, and can cause people to have to trigger crypt effects.

@brass-man that card appears to be from master's edition IV, which i think came out after the Dark.

@rat3de against oath you either need to be killing them quickly, which is a matter of how much dread return and fatestitcher your maindeck has, or be able to kill the oath(with your cards to kill oath also hitting their hate). you already have claims, of course. serenity is bad against oath for obvious reasons, wispmare and decay(and i suspect trophy) are good. my current board, though not for a blue list and not playing hollow one, has 4 decay. sadly it doesn't kill leyline, but whether or not oath plays that varies.

a card i've wanted to try for a while but haven't is leyline of sanctity. counters oath, crypt, spellbomb, and tendrils.
