TypicalTimmy on Manaburn question

1 week ago

So, I've known about Manaburn for a while now and I have known that it hasn't been around for a while as well.

My question is pretty straight forward: Was it really ever a problem?

I mean, it's basic math really. If you needed 3 or 4 or 5 mana, that's what you tapped for.

Were there reasons people would "overpay" the costs and activations?

Like, okay if I have six lands out and I wanted to cast a 3CMC spell, why would I tap the other three lands I didn't need and be subjected to the 3 damage?

I get why it was a thing, and I get why it was removed. What I don't get is why it was a problem.

Aside from cards like, you know, Braid of Fire.

Braid of Fire is a little specific, but you could toss a Desperate Ritual on an Isochron Scepter

I've checked it out, and Needle Drop works great! Thanks for the help! I've tried to run mana ramp like Runaway Steam-Kin, Braid of Fire, and Rite of Flame, but I run out of hand too quickly and then rely on top decking.

Maybe sub it in for Braid of Fire, which hasn't been too useful.

I'm very interested in how a game with this deck typically plays. It seems like could win relatively quick.

Why Aether Vial? I understand that you can cheat out some of your 2-3 CMC creatures (which I assume you want it for), but I don't know how effective it is in your deck.

Also what do you use the Braid of Fire mana on? I have only taken a quick glance but I can't see too many ways to use the mana during your upkeep.

Sorry, that I asked a whole bunch of questions. I also enjoy a lil' jank in my decks.

Braid of Fire would probably be good ramp. I fail to see Arbiter of the Ideal as being good. Just run Commander's Sphere instead of trying to use his wonky ability. Lower CMC, more consistent ability to use, especially in a three-color deck. I'm quite surprised you're not running it already.

bushido_man96. Not particularly. Perhaps Braid of Fire as a replacement for Nirkana Revenant? Could Arbiter of the Ideal work as a replacement for Patron of the Moon?
