Blue Sun's Zenith Discussion

multimedia on Johnny Combo Player EDH

Hey, first time I've seen an actual silver-bordered card as a viable Commander and not just a gimmick, +1

Consider an infinite blue mana combo: five Islands + High Tide + Peregrine Drake with tutor help from Johnny for Snap and Deadeye Navigator. Use this combo with Johnny to tutor for Blue Sun's Zenith, draw the deck and then play all cards in the deck.

Other cards to consider are:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, looks good for a first Commander deck.

Talrand can be a nice budget control Commander, but he needs a lot more instants than I see here. Spells that can help you dig for other cards as well as draw. Take more advantage of Talrand's ability to make creatures and play more cheap mana instants and sorceries instead of so many creatures. Creatures like Mnemonic Wall who you've included and my suggestions of Archaeomancer, Docent of Perfection and Curious Homunculus are the kind of abilities you want with creatures because they also go with the control/ Drake making strategy of Talrand. Creatures such as Slither Blade and Storm Fleet Aerialist look out of place because if controlling you don't want aggressive creatures or creatures that benefit from being aggressive.

You're on the right track with including several good cards: Brainstorm, Mystical Confluence, Mana Leak, Negate, Blue Sun's Zenith, Sol Ring, Thought Vessel, Reliquary Tower, Echoing Truth, etc. There's however a lot of cards that can be replaced for better budget options.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, two budget cards that are busted with Kruphix's ability to store mana or Tron are Blue Sun's Zenith and Genesis Wave.

Expedition Map, Crop Rotation and Sylvan Scrying are all budget cards to tutor for the Tron lands.

Alchemist's Refuge lets you cast cards at instant speed with all the stored mana. Command Tower is one of the best lands for Commander.

Budget green staple Commander cards to consider:

Two drops that look good here are: Thrasios, Triton Hero use stored mana or Tron to draw cards. Kiora's Follower is ramp and can untap a Tron land or Doubling Cube.

As far as finishers it's pretty hard for your opponents to beat a fast Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur.

I thought of another possibility. Since you like infinite mana, you could just instakill with Blue Sun's Zenith

How do you feel about how much control you have over wheeling? I would worry about discarding or wheeling over Laboratory Maniac (although most of your wheels put cards back in your library, which is oddly in tension with the maniac). Maybe Winds of Change would be better than Windfall or Wheel of Fate to keep the maniac around?

I use a similar strategy in Revenge of the Nibblers, but with The Locust God as my commander, not that it's any more or less removable than the maniac or Arjun, the Shifting Flame.

I try to land a Kindred Discovery when I have combo pieces out like Altar of the Brood, Impact Tremors, Laboratory Maniac, or Purphoros, God of the Forge. That lets me respond to my draw triggers one at a time, rather than to a wheel effect that must be completed. Then I can draw all of my deck except for 1 or 2 cards and pause to respond to a draw trigger with an instant that goes back into my library, like Blue Sun's Zenith. Along the way, I use some combination of Ashnod's Altar, Gemstone Array, Mana Echoes, and Phyrexian Altar to store a ton of U mana to keep drawing the zenith and re-casting it back into my library.

I can't literally do that forever, but I can do that long enough to take care of libraries with a few more cards than mine or opponents with high, but not infinite, life totals.

I wonder if more win cons might be helpful here.

Happy brewing!

Nice build man. Since you are using some infinite mana combos why not run a Blue Sun's Zenith. In doing so you can combo that with a Laboratory Maniac for self mill win, or since Sun's goes back into your library you can mill out your opposition.

Wouldn't Blue Sun's Zenith be better than Pull from Tomorrow? The extra mana to not discard seems good. Also, Voidslime would be a good addition.
