Bringer of the Black Dawn Discussion

Craven183 on Rakdos, Lord of (Budget) Eldrazi

This deck looks very cool and is certainly a great idea- might have to try this out sometime in the future! Just wanna point out to you that Bringer of the Black Dawn cannot be played in this deck since he has color symbols outside of rakdos colors in his abilities. This would only be playable here if those symbols were in a reminder text for an ability (such as extort) and not the ability, itself, thus it must be a 5 color deck for him to be in.

your lowest cost green creature for Green Sun's Zenith is your Maelstrom Archangel. certainly a good target, but unfortunately it'll likely be the "only" target. also curious why you didn't include Bringer of the Black Dawn or Fist of Suns.

I will suggest Jace's Archivist as a nice wheel. And I like Forced Fruition, it doesn't make you draw but if you play Nekuzar or other cards that hurt opponents when they draw.

Otherwise, sadly but I'm sorry you cannot play Bringer of the Black Dawn, his color identity is WURBG.

Love the old Ripper.. Have my own deck with him. I can definitely recommend Scarecrone.. It might lead you to run some additional Scarecrows, since it provides so much. Also if you're looking for more changelings you might consider adding Taurean Mauler. I also really like Maelstrom Nexus in this deck since you can cast your general for 5 mana, while he has a CMC of 10, and thus will cascade for 9 or less. Also coupled it with some of the Bringers, specifically Bringer of the Blue Dawn for draw, Bringer of the Black Dawn for tutor and Bringer of the White Dawn to recycle artifacts. If you're running 5 colors anyway, you might as well, right? ;)

Lastly, if you're here to lose friends, casting Rite of Replication on the Reaper King himself is also very good for that. You only get to keep one, but before that happens, you'll have 5 Reaper Kings seeing 4 other scarecrows enter the battlefield, and one seeing all 5 enter, so it will shoot 25 permanents right there and then. Ends up being the same number as the battlesphere, but you don't need Conspiracy in play for it.

Thanks for the feedback!

@Zauk: I think you were assuming my commander is Ramos, Dragon Engine, but I only used it as a placeholder until tappedout added Jodah, Archmage Eternal which is my actual commander.

Nevertheless, Composite Golem + Nim Deathmantle is a nice combo. For now I'll not include it because generating infinite mana kind of undermines the purpose of my commander, but I'll keep it in mind.

@ButterMyBiscuit: I did not wrap my head around it, but to make it more affordable you could cut the eldrazi lords and add some kraken or leviathans or whatever you like. And the fetchlands could maybe be cut for a manabase that is more forest-centered with some additional land-fetching sorceries and signets. Wiggyman's list looks promising, too.

@Wiggyman: thanks for all the suggestions!

Bringer of the Black Dawn, Blightsteel Colossus, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Progenitus, Expropriate, Insurrection, Eldrazi Conscription and It That Betrays are nice options. My focus was to include creatures with cast-triggers or with abilites that are conditional on the creature being cast like Hypnox, but I'll try to find slots for some of the cards you mentioned.

Maelstrom Wanderer was not included because in this deck it doesn't hit most of the powerhouses which have higher cmc than 7.

Omniscience is great, but I did not include it for now because it would undermine Jodah's role in the deck. Ultimately I'll have to add it, though.

Wiggyman on Jodah, Archmage Eternal

Also, Omniscience just works really well in this type of build. I would definitely put it in.

These are some of the giant dudes I run to cheat in:

Bringer of the Black Dawn. Blightsteel Colossus (or I would run if I could afford). Avacyn, Angel of Hope. Progenitus. It That Betrays. Maelstrom Wanderer. Boundless Realms is better than Brass's Bounty. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. Expropriate. Time Stretch goes well with Reverberate. Insurrection. Rite of Replication. You can kill people with commander damage if you include Eldrazi Conscription.

Hope this helps!

x12721, great idea! I just finished editing the description to do just that :) Thanks!

Flooremoji, the explanation of JustAn0ther is perfect for the Doubling Season combo. The gaining life combo was supposed to be with Bringer of the Black Dawn, but I mistakenly put Beacon of Tomorrows in its place (you can find that combo in the 1-card combos section). I was thinking that maybe there was something that could combo with Walk the Aeons the way you were saying, but the closest thing I could find was Sacred Ground which doesn't work unfortunately.

griffstick... You're welcome/sorry. ;D
