Anvil of Bogardan Discussion

Profet93 on Reserved List?

2 hours ago

Is it worth it to buy cards that I will actually use from the reserved list? From what I understand, the cards won't be reprinted so they should retain their value. These are not just cards to keep and hope they increase in price, but also cards that I will be using in EDH decks as well.

The specific cards in question I am looking to purchase are...

Mishra's Workshop

Chains of Mephistopheles

Forcefield

All Hallow's Eve

Land Equilibrium

Gauntlet of Might

Imperial Recruiter

Forcefield

Copy Artifact

Serra's Sanctum

Fork

Volrath's Stronghold

Metalworker

Mana Vortex

Mind Over Matter

Zirilan of the Claw

Anvil of Bogardan

Ertai, Wizard Adept

Winding Canyons

Mana Web

Corpse Dance

Some ideas to consider, what do you think of Memory Jar, Endless Horizons, Alhammarret's Archive, Mesmeric Orb and Anvil of Bogardan?

Draw_Wurm on Looking for Experienced EDHers with ...

2 weeks ago

I want to try an experiment to free up funds for future decks. Can I cut expensive cards by finding functional replacements or by spreading the functionality over multiple cards? Need the keen eyes of some people that can think of good functional replacements or equivalents.

Ideas so far:

Colossus of Akros + Elixir of Immortality for Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. Indestructible creature + recycleable graveyard shuffling.

Steel Hellkite for Batterskull. Not sure we need the lifegain & adds permanent removal.

Harsh Mentor for Stranglehold. Not sure there is a functional Stranglehold replacement.

Universal Solvent for All Is Dust. Not a wrath, but Nev's disk ant Spine of Ish Shah hit everything else the creature wraths don't. Loses the ability to hit indestructible stuff.

Worn Powerstone for Thran Dynamo. Functionally worse.

arena of ancients for War's Toll. A different slowing effect.

Mystifying Maze for Maze of Ith

geier's reach sanitarium for Mikokoro, Center of the Sea.

Library of Leng for Anvil of Bogardan. Not sure we need the anvil. We want cards in hand, not necessarily card draws.

Anybody got any other ideas?

Those are the priciest in the deck, though, most of the wheels and non foil cards were budget friendly.. yea i was restricted by budget for the first 3 years, but i built it more Fork / Dark Ritual + wheels, i find the upkeep draws like Howling Mine give your opponents too much card advantage/answers without Notion Thief and is just pure card advantage to opponents without nekusar or Underworld Dreams effects.

Some budget options

Cephalid Coliseum

Fevered Visions

Memory Jar

Toxic Deluge

High Tide

Notion Thief

Bubbling Muck

Seething Song

Vandalblast

Cyclonic Rift

Blasphemous Act

Oppression

Magus of the Wheel

Words of Waste

Magus of the Will

Deadly Tempest

Breathstealer's Crypt

Magus of the Jar

Trinket Mage

Winds of Change

Memory

Dualcaster Mage

Riptide Laboratory

Past in Flames

Mizzix's Mastery

Phyrexian Arena

Psychosis Crawler

Day's Undoing

Time Reversal

Winds of Change

Whispering Madness

Phyrexian Tyranny

Underworld Dreams

Fate Unraveler

Increasing Vengeance

Reverberate

Twincast

Cabal Ritual

Decree of Pain

Sire Of Insanity

Dream Halls

Archfiend of Ifnir

Runehorn Hellkite

Anvil of Bogardan

.. i could go on, i wasn't speaking purely of the budget cards i was just pointing out ive put 6 years and a lot of money into building mine so there are some budget ideas in that list

ibstudent2200:

Ruination is a great suggestion; holy shit, I can't believe I forgot to add that!

Chandra, Flamecaller is nice, but she does cost 6. I might end up running her as well. It's a good suggestion.

Starstorm is a great suggestion against more aggressive decks, particularly elfball. Conversely, All Is Dust is almost never a card I'm happy to draw. It spares my artifacts, sure, but it kills Daretti which is counter intuitive to our plan. If I'm going to kill my general, I'd rather it be to Ugin, the Spirit Dragon -- at least he has multiple modes and can stick around generating additional value.

Duplicant and Sandstone Oracle aren't bad cards per se, but in a more competitive meta decks can't really afford to be stuffed with high CMC cards that don't generate tremendous value short of instantly winning the game upon cast. Duplicant is a 1 for 1 and often doesn't end up with a devastating power and toughness ("I'll Duplicant your Jin-Gitaxias... My Duplicant is now a 5/4" -- not very scary). I used to have Sandstone Oracle in the deck, and while occasionally he'd draw me 5 cards, drawing him felt so awful when I had more cards in hand than my opponents, or he'd end up drawing me only one or two cards.

Drownyard Temple is some solid tech with all my MLD and as you noted, it synergizes with Daretti's -2; I like that suggestion.

HOLY SHIT at Blinkmoth Well! What a suggestion! Loving that one!

Yeah buddy, Nullstone Gargoyle does work! Outside of Meren / Karador decks that ETB triggers or Caustic Caterpillar and the like, some decks have real trouble dealing with the Gargoyle!

I'm still testing Gonti's Aether Heart. Currently, my thought process is that if this thing is imprinted on Prototype Portal you can really start going nuts with value Time Warps off it every couple turns. Alternately, copying the Heart with Mirrorworks as it comes into play then letting the real one die to the Legend rule could create some useful situations, as you could then activate and exile the token version, then use Daretti to recur the real one and so on. Finally, exiling the Heart and copying the extra turn effect with Rings of Brighthearth is solid value. Again, all of these scenarios are a little clunky, but it's Daretti -- we're working with what we've got, lol.

Anvil of Bogardan is a bit iffy. It comes down early and while it does feed our opponents, remember that it's not a Howling Mine -- it's not straight card draw, it's filtering. I believe that in most cases this will help us more than our opponents, as Daretti is happy to pitch the high CMC artifacts into the yard so he can recur them. Anvil does help our opponents who run reanimator decks, but they're not tremendously common in CEDH. Blinkmoth Urn I'm not sure about; I haven't tested it extensively enough. I just added it.

I really loved your suggestions though. Some of these are going in immediately! Haha

I'm a big fan of Ruination in mono-red decks.

I personally prefer Chandra, Flamecaller to Chandra, Torch of Defiance. Being able to discard your hand and draw more cards than you had before is extremely nice.

I've found Starstorm to be useful as an instant-speed boardwipe, even if it's not particularly efficient. All Is Dust is another helpful boardwipe.

Duplicant and Sandstone Oracle are cards that I've found to be fairly handy with Daretti.

Drownyard Temple is fun with Daretti, and also fun with MLD.

Blinkmoth Well shuts off Winter Orb and Static Orb.

I had completely forgotten about Nullstone Gargoyle! I'm definitely picking it up ASAP.

How has Gonti's Aether Heart faired for you?

I'm not a huge fan of Anvil of Bogardan or Blinkmoth Urn, since your opponents benefit before you do. I've had way too many games where multiple opponents gained 2-4 mana from the Urn, only for one of them to blow it up before I could use it.

Thanks! I'm probably not going to run Anvil of Bogardan in this version. It's a bit expensive these days, and I don't want my opponents to have the hand size limit restriction lifted. I'm gonna run Ghost Quarter to nuke Reliquary Towers too. I was thinking of going heavy on artifacts, so your suggestions are great. I'm thinking a healthy dose of eldrazi will be good in here too. I'm also hoping to find some decent blue horror creatures (not Spellskite though) for thematic purposes, but I won't force the issue.
