This is the placeholder thread for the Legacy Loam Primer on MTG Nexus. If you would like to take over the primer for this particular deck, please message a Legacy staff member.

Loam, also known as Aggro Loam, is a four-color midrange list that plays on a variety of land synergies and tutor packages. Knight of the Reliquary is the cornerstone of the deck, giving it a powerful threat that can also toolbox for a variety of lands like Maze of Ith, Bojuka Bog, Karakas, Cabal Pit, Wasteland, or Dark Depths plus Thespians' Stage. Green Sun's Zenith provides redundancy for the Knights while also allowing the deck to find a few silver bullets like Gaddock Teeg, Knight of Autumn, Ramunap Excavator, and Scavenging Ooze. Mox Diamond lets the deck accelerate out its threats as well as Chalice of the Void, making this one of the few Chalice decks not to lean on Sol Lands. Life from the Loam and Wrenn and Six recur your threats. Liliana of the Veil, Abrupt Decay, and Punishing Fire clean up opposing threats, with Loam, Punishing Fire (returned via Grove of the Burnwillows), Wrenn and Six, and Dark Confidant keeping your hand stocked while Liliana strips the opponent's hand.
