Deck Description

I finally acquired the key pieces of the Seismic Assault deck lists I see popping up from time to time, so I thought I'd try my hand at the deck.

How to Play

Main idea is to get Seismic Assault out ASAP, then use its effect to "Shock" the opponent as much as possible every turn by discarding lands and returning them from the graveyard with Life From the Loam. Hopefully 26 lands is enough to achieve this.

Molten Vortex gives some redundancy for Assault. It's cheaper to cast, but requires {R} for each activation.

Countryside Crusher is a backup win condition that can help draw action every turn while making itself bigger. It also gets bigger with each activation of Assault / Vortex.

To help assemble the combo, we have Faithless Looting and Magmatic Insight. Ditching lands and / or Loam to these is okay as Loam dredges itself back and return lands. We also only really need 3 red sources out as that's the cost of Assault. Playing more than 3 lands isn't necessary, but some matchups may require it.

Desperate Ritual helps drop an early Assault / Crusher.

There's a number of aggro list in my club, and Anger of the Gods helps deal with that.

Dakmor Salvage is in here as it can dredge itself back, acting as a "free" mini Loam.

Horizon Canopy and Sheltered Thicket are instant speed Cantrips, which helps protect Loam from effects like Surgical Extraction.
