Blightsteel Colossus Discussion

GoingConcealed on Raging Clue, shaped anew!

You can probably cut Blightsteel Colossus down to 2, since you tutor him and him in your hand is a dead card. Also since you NEED to get to 4 mana for the Shape Anew, you should probably run at least 4 maybe 5 more lands.

Ya, too bad it's not an artifact so you can sac it to Breya.

What about Shape Anew? Breya and her thopters are artifacts, and it hits Darksteel Colossus, and Blightsteel Colossus which should be in the deck (unless there are budget concerns, he's pretty pricy). Hitting Quicksilver Amulet/Deathrender/Proteus Staff isn't bad either.

Blightsteel Colossus can't be hit by Ancient Grudge either, but yeah those are all good alternatives, I might test a few of those.

This, well, quite uncommon way to play Jhoira. Have you thought about putting in fatties and massive wipes? Like:

Apocalypse or Decree of Annihilation as wipes to go right before those: Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or Emrakul, the Promised End, or simply Blightsteel Colossus.

dlamars on Daretti, Some Assembly Required

4 days ago

Hey, so I've been play testing your list and I've noticed your cmc feels a little high. A couple observations:

I tried Karn Liberated and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon in my own list and drawing them early is harsh. Have you considered Codex Shredder in the possible situation where discarding them is necessary early on for daretti's +2? It's great for returning them to your hand when needed and throws a card in the yard each turn which can be nice. I replaced both with Unstable Obelisk(this is iffy since it doesn't help get daretti out early, I might put karn back in after testing) and All Is Dust(which I see you run anyway) since both can be easily recurred via daretti, Past in Flames or Recoup.

How is Clock of Omens feeling to you? It seems pretty situational and while it can be used for ramp I haven't found it to be effective most of the time.

Blightsteel Colossus doesn't really mesh great with daretti but if I had a foil id probably include it anyway. Have you considered Chandra's Ignition as a possible wincon with it?

Contagion Engine is awesome for a one sided board wipe, but I wonder if the slot wouldn't be better for a 2 mana rock allowing daretti to come out a turn early and start +2ing? The same could be said for Tormenting Voice substitutin Fellwar Stone and/or Thought Vessel(or one of the rituals).

Lastly I would say Mirrorworks and Mindslaver are great but situational.The mirror plays better the sooner it comes out but later on it can be kind of meh. Mindslaver is obviously just good with daretti but it does paint a target in 4-player, does it generally generate enough value for you to use it and still survive a potentially hostile table?

Anyways thanks for looking at my build and your suggestions. I hope mine help you out too!

redkhan on Competitive Sunforger package

LeBeerCat the thing is that sunforger already requires so many potential slots that it itself is a subtheme that I don't think I can devote too many slots to a third subtheme.

dlamars thanks for the suggestions. I really think Corpse Dance may be too conditional of a reanimation spell.

Qolorful oh that would be some really spicy tech especially since there is someone running Blightsteel Colossus and another running Emrakul, the Promised End in a wishboard in my meta.

I may just be blind, but I don't see how you can get Blightsteel Colossus out turn three. Maybe explain the perfect scenario?

goblinguiderevealpls on [PRIMER] Death & Staxes: Competitive Meren EDH

2 weeks ago

So you're saying a turn 2 marit lage isnt fast? I play meren stax with the above cards as well as most of thia list, and my meren deck is very fast, not to mention, the creatures may be 5+ cmc but the entire point of meren is to cast them for FREE. Its very easy to get 9 loyalty counters before turn 9 and reanimate a sheoldred, damnation is 100x better than black sun, and you're missing the "fastest" combo in the deck.

Turn 1 Dark Depths

Turn 2 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Vampire Hexmage, marit lage.

You say the cards are slow but meren has never cared about creature cmc since he gets them for free, and you're missing most of the "fast" combos

Stax isnt fast. The entire point of stax is group slug and slowing the game down by denying your opponents.

If you want to build him different thats fine, but i dont really see any wincon just removal and mana dorks, and what a primer is is a guide on how to play the deck as its intended, so running a "different" build automatically negates the point of a primer.

You can build it any way you want, but if you want to tag it as a primer it needs to be built the way it is supposed to, if the build isnt 100% optimal or maximized, calling it a primer is false advertising. So i would recommend changing the name because this is not even close to a primer :/

Build it strictly worse than its potential if you like, just don't advertise a primer if you dont understand how to use his ability, when you have 15 loyalty counters by like turn 6, reanimating a 1-3 cmc creature is extremely weak when you could be reanimating a Blightsteel Colossus or Sheoldred, Whispering One for free, but its a stax list, being fast is absolute lowest on your priority list.

Best of luck.
