Thread: [Deck] Turbo Depths

    Re: [Deck] Turbo Depths

    Since I'm too cheap to shell out for Sylvan Library I'm deciding between Abundant Harvest and OUAT as a replacement in the GW KOTR build. Thoughts?

    I would go with OUAT for sure. Mana isn't an issue and setting up early for free is very good. It gives you better selection.

    Is GB Depths completely dead currently?

    No, it still puts up the occasional result. Here is the most recent results on mtgtop8:

    The metagame is currently pretty hostile though, especially with Prismatic Ending being another efficient answer to Marit Lage. Uro keeping life totals above 20 is another bad sign. If I were to bring this to a tournament soon, and I might, I would want additional ways to get Marit Lage through. Rancor and possibly main deck Rite of Consumption. I also think in general Dark Confidant is better than Not of this World in the main deck. My current build plays 3 Bobs main and 3 NotW in the sideboard for Prismatic Ending. I am also biting the bullet and playing 2x main deck Abrupt Decay. The deck isn't ideally placed, but you can make adjustments and still do well if you have a lot of experience with the deck.

    these days I think hogaak depths is the way to go if you want to play bg depths

    Check here this GW Depths (no turbo):

    https://mtgtop8.com/event?e=32260&d=448321&f=LE

    It was created by a well-known Spanish player (Togores)

    Re: [Deck] Turbo Depths

    A card I've stumbled upon recently I thought I might mention.

    Restore

    It can 'reanimate' your own used fetchlands.
    It can steal opposing on color used fetchlands from an opponent's graveyard. It can also recur a nonbasic destroyed by your own Wasteland.
    If the opponent Wastelands your Depths or Thespian Stage, Restore can return the piece.
    Further, Restore can return your Wasteland, or your opponent's Wastelands. That's comparable to Sinkhole at 1G, reuse my own or my opponents Wasteland. Sinkhole could perhaps even complement Wasteland and Restore to max those effects, if more land control is preferred.
    Stealing an opponent's land outside of Wasteland could even be Dark Depths in the mirror.
    Less relevant, stealing non-fetch lands reduces Threshold and Delve.

    Restore plays well with Crop Rotation and Mox Diamond, and fetchlands, Elvish Reclaimer, Knight of the Reliquary, Sylvan Safekeeper... ontop of just being efficient against and with Wasteland. Further, the combo puts Dark Depths in the yard anyway; if Marit Lage is removed, then Restore can return Dark Depths or Thespian Stage.

    Restore could enable cards like Entomb to bin Dark Depths or Thespian Stage. Entomb can also bin Life from the Loam. Not sure this matters, but I figured I'd mention it.

    Restore at 1G is comparable to Ramunap Excavator at 2G. Perhaps Depths.dec would prefer Ramunap Excavator since it sticks around for multiple uses. I would think Excavator would pair with Exploration where more lands can be played from the graveyard, meaning double Wasteland, fetchland twice, etc.
    Luck is a residue of design.

    I had never seen a Mono-B depths, is this any good? (well, it must be, there are several 5-0s with this and variations, also , chains aside it's a really budget deck):

    Re: [Deck] Turbo Depths

    That deck also incorporates the Leyline of the void / Helm of obedience combo. You have to weigh up if it's worth having 2 plans in the one deck, or going flat out for the Dark Depths OR helm combo plan. There are instances of both decks which focus on 1 plan and doing ok. Sometimes the helm combo is a good sideboard plan.

    Re: [Deck] Turbo Depths

    It's been a little while since I really dug into legacy, but a new LGS opened up recently and we had our inaugural legacy weekly today. I'm not an online player, I only do paper. I played a fairly traditional BG Turbo version, no rainbow lands or Stifle/Flusterstorm. I couldn't get a Boseiju before the event, so I just played a maindeck Dryad Arbor. Four rounds, I went 3-1, beating a mono-green Tooth and Nail homebrew, Mono-red Painter, and Grixis Death's Shadow. My loss came against another mono-red Painter player. Maindeck Boseiju would have been pretty good in the painter matchup. I just put together a streamlined fast list with some grind tools in the board.

    List:
    4x Vampire Hexmage
    4x Elvish Spirit Guide
    4x Lotus Petal
    4x Pithing Needle
    4x Crop Rotation
    4x Sylvan Scrying
    4x Thoughtseize
    3x Duress
    3x Not of this World
    1x Rancor
    4x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
    4x Verdant Catacombs
    1x Bayou
    2x Blooming Marsh
    1x Forest
    1x Swamp
    1x Ghost Quarter
    1x Bojuka Bog
    1x Sejiri Steppe
    1x Dryad Arbor
    4x Thespian's Stage
    4x Dark Depths

    Sideboard
    2x Sylvan Safekeeper
    2x Plague Engineer
    2x Sylvan Library
    2x Rite of Consumption
    2x Assassin's Trophy
    2x Force of Vigor
    2x Surgical Extraction
    1x Karakas


    Changes I will be making moving forward: cutting Arbor for Boseiju, easy swap once I get ahold of one. I also swapped out the Blooming Marshes for Nurturing Peatland, a definite upgrade. My biggest reason for the fetches/basics was to play around Blood Moon, which is always prevalent in my area. It defintely paid off, and overall the basics are better than having Stifle/Flusterstorm. The fetches help shuffle with sideboard Libraries as well.

    Felt good to be playing cards again! Hope everyone gets a chance to get back into in-person Legacy.

    Re: [Deck] Turbo Depths

    New list:

    -2 Blooming Marsh
    +2 Nurturing peatland

    -1 Not of this world
    +1 Life from the loam

    -1 dryad arbor
    +1 Boseiju

    List feels strong, may cut the Rancor. Not sure if I still need the Dryad Arbor in the 75, there isn't a lot of Edict effects currently. I could also Sideboard in the Safekeepers to help in that regard.

    Re: [Deck] Turbo Depths

    Is there a specific reason you're running rancor? It seems like a lot of the flyers I see would require two attacks regardless. ie Ledger Shredder, Murktide

    Re: [Deck] Turbo Depths

    It was originally to trample over delvers, but also to create a significant threat with Hexmage. Maybe it's time to drop it, I really don't have a lot of Delver in my local metagame. Not sure what I would replace it with, maybe a 1-of Elvish Reclaimer. Thanks for the note.

    Re: [Deck] Turbo Depths

    This is the list I've been running. No forest to dodge submerge. Tower of the Magistrate is a flex spot that has previously been Life from the Loam, Rite of Consumption, Duress. This weekend I top 8 a local team 10k with this list.
    In the sideboard I've been going back and forth between Plague Engineer, Leyline of the Void, and Massacre. There are a good number of experienced lands players in my local meta so I've been considering building the sideboard more against that matchup.

    1 Bojuka Bog
    1 Boseiju, Who Endures
    1 Ghost Quarter
    1 Sejiri Steppe
    1 Tower of the Magistrate
    1 Swamp
    2 Gemstone Mine
    2 Nurturing Peatland
    3 Duress
    3 Not of This World
    4 Dark Depths
    4 Darkbore Pathway // Slitherbore Pathway
    4 Thespian's Stage
    4 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
    4 Crop Rotation
    4 Lotus Petal
    4 Pithing Needle
    4 Sylvan Scrying
    4 Thoughtseize
    4 Elvish Spirit Guide
    4 Vampire Hexmage

    Sideboard (15)
    2 Abrupt Decay
    2 Collector Ouphe
    2 Force of Vigor
    1 Karakas
    2 Plague Engineer
    2 Rite of Consumption
    2 Surgical Extraction
    2 Sylvan Safekeeper
