Bottled Cloister Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hm. My initial response to AS was 'yes!', seeing as the deck doesn't start playing Magic until turn 2 or 3. A turn one play would be nice... and I do have a handful of green sources already...
But alas, the cards I usually need in order to not die by turn 4 or 5, are white. The deck often wins or loses by Ghostly Prison, & sometimes also Magus. Everything else can take its sweet time to come out, truthfully (unless I'm playing Rock/BGx, wherein I'm needing to race the inevitable Abrupt Decay topdeck). So my second response is a 'no'...
But then... what if I were to replace Prisons with Ensnaring Bridges? Bridge has synergy with Colossus... but with so many 4 & 5 drops, my hand doesn't empty overly quickly. Bridges with Bottled Cloister, maybe?
Thanks for the suggestion, BlazingAbsol. Some testing is in order, I think. Shame there isn't a 1 CMC-to-cast/use version of Vessel of Nascency.

Suggestions for updates.
Deals 1 damage to each creature your opponents control & destroy all of their lands (provided they are still 1/1 swamps. Naturally either Scouring Sands or Savage Alliance can be replaced with a each creature spell if you've got alternative ways of getting mana, at the cost of your own lands. Few will expect this or see it coming in a red deck and it's EDH legal.)

I never really had any prospects for Refurbish in Modern mainly because Resurrection has been modern legal for AGES, and never seen any play, barely even fringe.
Would you consider Platinum Emperion?
I'd go deeper on Sharuum the Hegemon and look at artifacts like Bottled Cloister and Possessed Portal that might cause your opponent to get locked out. Even just Welding Jar makes it difficult to deal with Sharuum

gumgod, you're absolutely right about that one. Bottled Cloister is about 1000x better for this deck, as you can play it and not worry about having to discard half of the scepter/instant combo you need. Thanks!

Bottled Cloister is probably better than the skullcap. It does the same thing with bridge, but you get your hand back (assuming it's not disenchanted).

If I have a Moonring Mirror in play and I let it build up for a couple turns, then I cast Bottled Cloister. On my opponent's turn I exile my hand. On my turn I resolve both artifacts in order of the mirror on top of the bottle. Can I exile my non-existent hand to get all the cards removed by the mirror, and then put the cards exiled by the bottle into my hand?

Since I didn't get a direct answer, I am just going to infer that you want cards that cost at most 5 mana and cards that cost at most 8 dollars (you mentioned Staff of Nin and Mind's Eye which almost make it but don't).
Not knowing the rest of the deck and if you have lots of creatures in it (where Skullclamp and friends would be fantastic), here is a list I found of cards that should help after looking through MagicalHacker - List of All Draw Cards (Steady), my resource of all available efficient cards that let you repeatedly gain card advantage:
- Sunset Pyramid
- Bottled Cloister
- Oracle's Vault
- Seer's Sundial
- Tapestry of the Ages
- Thran Tome
- Illuminated Folio
- Moonring Mirror
- Treasure Map Flip
Take a look at that previously linked list to see exactly what can and can't work for you, and I'm sure that you'll find more than enough cards to do what you want. :)
