Astral Cornucopia Discussion

MagicMarc on Why Does Nyx Lotus Enter …

Exactly, Both the Empowered Autogenerator and Astral Cornucopia go crazy in decks that exploit counters. When i mentioned the others i meant all of the non-counter gaining mana rocks. They gain nothing in a proliferate or counter doubling deck.

MagicMarc, the counters on Astral Cornucopia can be exploited very easily, unless you are referring to the fact that they cannot be increased without another card.

the fact of the Empowered Autogenerator being able to increase it's own counters without using your mana or other resources makes it better in the long run than any of the other cards listed here.

It is only slower than some of the others if you plan on going infinite mana with some kind of combo the turn you play your mana rock or within the next 1-3 turns.

In a vacuum it's more powerful and trades cost for an "over many turns" build up.

If you do shenanigans with it like in a proliferate or Vorel deck its almost as good as Astral Cornucopia. Just a turn slower to develop the same insane mana counts. And its clearly better than the others since they don't get counters you can exploit.

DeinoStinkus, Gilded Lotus is an awesome card, although, for my Atraxa EDH deck, I instead use Astral Cornucopia.

Astral Cornucopia, Consume Spirit, Breakthrough, Dregs of Sorrow and Vigor are all I can think to suggest. You have a pretty awesome list already. But I also agree with the tutors idea, if going infinite is a major desire for you.

Hoobynobber7395 on Zaxara got a phat X

I am running Zaxara, Nightmare Hydra currently as my mane focus deck.

depending on budget some cards to look into would be:

Bloom Tender and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds for better mana and infinite combo

Walking Ballista alone can win a game in this deck with infinite damage

Spell Burst is my favorite x cost counter

Animist's Awakening, Astral Cornucopia, and Boseiju, Who Shelters All are amazing mana includes for this deck

Doubling Season and Doubling Cube are great for doubling tokens and counters for hydras as well as doubling your mana base

Helix Pinnacle and Mind Grind are both great wincons for the deck interesting ones at that

The Ozolith is a way to protect your counters

and Wildest Dreams helps you get things back that get answered

if you want any help please feel free to tag me and ask! these are only suggestions, every player builds and plays their decks differently

Many thanks to both DemMeowsephs and SPACEgun!

So I agree on several points:

  • Deploy the Gatewatch is underwhelming about half the time, as it's sometimes hitting planeswalkers that aren't that helpful or sometimes nothing at all. Given it's a 6 mana sorcery with the need for double white I think this might be worth a cut for Ignite the Beacon for the greater reliability of being able to play the planeswalkers I actually want to play.

  • For mana I think Mana Confluence is good but Gemstone Mine is a good pick with proliferate. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth has always been on the radar but I've yet to find another copy as they are all tied up in my other black EDH decks currently.

  • I am finding a way to add Astral Cornucopia to the deck but I will see if I can find a Coalition Relic as well. The only reason I am not that big a fan of Everflowing Chalice is due to the mana being colourless and the decks heavy reliance on colour fixing.

  • For mana fixing I was also considering the Thriving land cycle from the Jumpstart set. I think while the lands are slow they add a lot of flexibility to the mana base.

  • Mana ratios need to be fixed for more green mana for early game.

  • Venser, the Sojourner may not be nearly as good as I thought he was. I play him a lot in Roon Blink EDH but here because of the sorcery-speed of the deck it just sort of does not a whole lot for anyone unless you're already winning. I think this may be one of the first difficult cuts just based upon experience.

Some play tips I've come to learn:

  • Always play Atraxa turn 4 if you can. If she gets removed: fine if annoying, but the main thing is that there are very few things you can really do efficiently with 4 mana in this deck so setting yourself up for a proliferate seems to be worth it every time.
