Bubbling Cauldron Discussion

@ dichia

By the way, I have appreciated your help and recommendations. I like the idea of Alchemist's Refuge.

I did consider looking into the food sub-theme before. Now that I got a better feel for how the deck runs, I may just make that into another deck of it's own. But I'm definitely open to seeing how the cards you mentioned can work in this deck.

I'm also a long time edh player, so I assumed Prophet of Kruphix was banned in modern too, thankfully it's not. I love the idea of this card.

Early Harvest untaps all basic lands Regrowth to bring Early Harvest back to your hand. Early Harvest a second time, play your second Regrowth Pay 3 for Mirari to copy Regrowth Regrowth two targets will be Early Harvest and one copy of Regrowth

Rinse and repeat cycle to gain infinite mana. Regrowth brings the second copy of Regrowth and refreshes mana with Early Harvest.

I realize this infinite combo would not work with Bubbling Cauldron since all that mana goes away when the turn is over, and Bubbling Cauldron wouldn't untap until the next upkeep with Unwinding Clock. Also I forgot Early Harvest only untaps basic lands. (This is why the combo was removed).

To be honest, I don't know. At the multiplayer table, I found that Bubbling Cauldron is a huge target for removal. So I could only imagine how a single player would use their resources to stop that particular card. In multiplayer, it's easier to let someone else be a threat, wait till a lot of counter spells were used, then feel safer to play key cards.
Only way I'm able to sacrifice multiple newts in one turn is by having multiple copies of Bubbling Cauldron.

The way I intended to sacrifice newts outside my turn was through Unwinding Clock, only needing one copy of Bubbling Cauldron.

So it's a bit misleading of me infer a single cauldron could be used multiple times on my current turn. I have yet to find a combo that will enable this.

First idea that came to mind is Intruder Alarm and either Mycosynth Lattice or March of the Machines. Problem is i'd still need a way to get Festering Newt to etb from the graveyard, which Havengul Lich can do, but it costs 2 mana per cast, and 1 mana per cauldron ability. Really mana expensive.

However this combo COULD would work better with Cauldron Familiar and Witch's Oven, wouldn't need Havengul Lich either. Eliminating the need to spend mana.

I've seen you removed it, but how did the Early Harvest + Mirari + Regrowth combo worked? If the Bubbling Cauldron is tapped, how do you sac multiple times?

In the description you say it's for 4+ players game. How do you see the deck in a 1v1 game?

Since Cauldron Familiar uses food to come back, probably you could use some more food making cards like: Gilded Goose or Gingerbread Cabin. Or other cards that use food as well like Tempting Witch.

Also, Prophet of Kruphix can help with the flash issue and it also untap all your creatures and lands in all player's untap step. Should be good in a 4 players game.

Hope to be helpful or at least giving you some ideas.

Foxes are elusive scavengers or predators. They are shy, seldom seen, but opportunistic.

Shy Fox (g/w) How do you do hybrid mana?

Creature - Fox

Shy Fox can't attack if defending player controls a creature.

Lifelink

2/1


Scavenging Fox

Creature - Fox

Whenever a creature an opponent controls dies, Scavenging Fox gains First Strike until end of turn.

2/1


Shadow Fox

Creature - Fox

Whenever an opponent casts a spell, exile Shadow Fox. Return it to the battlefield at the beginning of the end step.

Lifelink

2/2


Challenge: This is a multi-part challenge for more than one contributor. Part 1: Create a permanent card that searches for a card by name after some kind of condition is met. The card you're designing is one part of a two or three-part combo. Don't design the card being searched for, but instead let that be Part 2 of this challenge, to be done by someone else. You may add whatever you like to the conditions of Part 2, and you can even give that card a name because your artifact refers to it by name.

Inspiration for this comes from Bubbling Cauldron, Festering Newt, and Bogbrew Witch, or Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, and Helm of Kaldra, or Renowned Weaponsmith with Vial of Dragonfire and Heart-Piercer Bow.

Rakish Heir , Vampire Nighthawk , Indulgent Aristocrat , Sanctum Seeker and Stromkirk Noble are all budget cards that would slot well into this deck. If you're willing to spend a bit more, Gifted Aetherborn , Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Knight of the Ebon Legion would be good additions. I'd also move Olivia, Mobilized for War into the main in place of Vampire Warlord or Markov Patrician

Not really sure what purpose Bubbling Cauldron serves here. Clear a Path seems a strange choice to me as well. Terminate would provide a much broader scope of removal for just more and be instant speed too.

Like the inclusion of By Force but Demolish seems a bit slow for an aggro deck.

Consider adding Momentous Fall for some extra card draw while also removing their creatures. Also Eldritch Evolution gives you a tutor while removing their creature. Bubbling Cauldron also gives you some more easily repeatable sacrifice. Otherwise, it looks solid!

I feel like this absolutely needs Identity Thief and a Delirium package. However, I think that this is more just a flavor thing, so I’ll say the above, Dark Impostor , Dimir Doppelganger , Arcane Adaptation , and the classic Bogbrew Witch , Festering Newt , and Bubbling Cauldron package. Laboratory Maniac is super flavorful as well.

But since you look to be going with some heavy black synergies... have you considered The Haunt of Hightower as a commander? It’s definitely, imo, the coolest Halloween-themed commander, being both super cool and very spooky. Still, I understand if you have an attachment to the Reaper King after so long.
