Aligned Hedron Network Discussion

why Aligned Hedron Network ? wouldnt that just render pretty much the entire creature portion of your board useless? i mean i can see maybe with Vedalken Orrery you could cast it in response to a sweeper to save your creatures, but then you would have to find a way to desroy it to get them back. I know there must be something I'm not seeing here. please humble me. +1

KongMing Thank you for your suggestions. Aligned Hedron Network is really a niche card. Could be good against some decks in my group but would be a dead card otherwise. It really depends on your meta but it is not bad. I run Suture Priest in my Trostani deck and it didn't helped much yet. It hasn't prvoked the big life loss or token stop, yet. Mostly it got countered or destroyed right away when someone plays tokens. I'll consider Chord of Calling, but semms a bit too situational at the moment. Blade of Selves is expensive mana wise but could bring an opponent down in a swing. I will test it for sure! Conjurer's Closet reads good, especially with a defender who also has card draw like Wall of Blossoms or Axebane Guardian.
UndeadSpider1990 Thank you for your suggestion, but like HobbyGamer007 said, Myth Unbound isn't that good of a card and reads a lot better than it is. Sadly Command Beacon wasn't reprinted with C18, so it's still expensive and I wan't to keep this deck budget friendly.

If you're looking for cards to cut and replace, Vindicate is probably worse than Anguished Unmaking unless you see a lot of problematic lands like Homeward Path in your meta. Instants are less important than permanents in a flicker deck Esper Charm and Predict especially seem a little underwhelming. I don't think Dictate of Erebos is very good without a sac outlet either. I also don't think you'll have enough white mana sources early on to use Knight of the White Orchid. Maybe replace it with a colorless tutor like Pilgrim's Eye or Thaumatic Compass Flip.
With Aminatou's -1, you can probably get a lot of work out of Aligned Hedron Network Especially if you can use it to get more triggers off of Sepulchral Primordial and Torrential Gearhulk than just flickering them individually. Even better, if you want to add Conjurer's Closet or Rings of Brighthearth (or just use Oath of Teferi you already have) you can have Aligned Hedron Network lock all the big guys and Lavinia of the Tenth detain all the smaller ones every turn.

Aligned Hedron Network is a niche, global O-Ring that has the ability of not pissing off everyone at the table. Might be good if you have one or two Zoo players at the table that the low-power token decks won't mind you neutering.
You mentioned that there are a lot of token decks in your pod. For that, I recommend Suture Priest. It gives you a bit of lifegain from your creatures hitting the battlefield, and also gives you some defense against opposing token decks. Sure, they can make 40 1/1 Saprolings, as long as they don't mind losing 40 life for them. (:

Thank you t3hdarkness for your insight first of all. I would also like to mention that I do still have some cards on order, Sword of Feast and Famine,Hazezon Tamar, are just a couple I can name off the top of my head.
When initially building the deck I didn't want to make it a combo deck, however I didn't realize how easy it is to just combo off and win. I was debating whether I wanted to put Cryptolith Rite in the deck, but Song of Freyalise is also another good choice.
And lastly as far as the wrath effect cards go, I would like to personally thank you for bringing a card like Aligned Hedron Network to my attention. Had no idea this card existed and I love it. I was also planning on taking Play of the Game out for Merciless Eviction. I just had to order it because I didn't want to take it out of my other deck. The same is true for replacing Wrath of God for Austere Command.
I fully intend to make necessary changes, and hope that I can rely on your knowledgeable feedback again.

I've been playing against Najeela quite a bit recently. Some of your choices don't really seem to synergize with your deck.
For Example; Wrath of God, Play of the Game, and Cataclysmic Gearhulk hit your field just as hard as the hit your opponents. Cards like Aligned Hedron Network, Austere Command, Hour of Reckoning, or Merciless Eviction will allow you to carve your field wiping to primarily benefit you.
Since you are already running Druids' Repository I'm guessing your group allows infinite combos. With all of the enchantment tutoring you have, you might want to add Cryptolith Rite or Song of Freyalise and Reconnaissance.

Propaganda and Ghostly Prison although, are very good cards for controlling your opponents or forcing them to sink mana into their creatures. They are taking up 2 slots of cards that could actually help you hit end game quicker. All the cards added, were cut at some point, but I didn't realize what they did for the deck till after they were out. Etherium Sculptor speeds up the deck by a turn with most of the cards in the deck being artifacts. Padeem, Consul of Innovation prevents your opponents from picking out pieces that are putting you further ahead. He basically makes it harder to stop you from setting off an endless combo, and draws you a card every turn if you have a big artifact out. Master Trinketeer is in mostly for a mana sink, and to make your thopters bigger. The only other guy that makes things bigger is Master of Etherium so it makes going wide hard to pull off when you don't have ways of putting in extra damage coming up often.

I'll mention one of my favorites I use in my Breya deck real quick before I get off break:
If you use Sharuum the Hegemon with Aligned Hedron Network, you can enable some crazy shenanigans. My favorite use of this is if I manage to exile my own Noxious Gearhulk (or the like) under the Hedron Network. With a sac outlet like Ashnod's Altar, you can destroy everyone's creatures.
Let's say Noxious Gearhulk is in the graveyard. You can play Sharuum the Hegemon, returning the Gearhulk, then play Aligned Hedron Network exiling both Sharuum and the Gearhulk. Sacrifice the Network to return them both, using the Gearhulk trigger to destroy a creature, and Sharuum's trigger to return Network to the battlefield, then repeat the cycle.
I kept my friend off of 4 of his (big) Eldrazi the entire game because whatever he would try to remove I would just sacrifice and return :)
It CAN go infinite, but it doesn't have to.
