Caged Sun


As Caged Sun enters the battlefield, choose a colour.

Creatures you control of the chosen colour have +1/+1.

Whenever a land's ability gains you one or more mana of the chosen colour, gain one additional mana of that colour.

This is why Extraplanar Lens is usually combined with a snow-covered basic land, because your opponent is less likely to have those.

Gauntlet of Power just helps everyone with that color. If you want something you-specific, look for Caged Sun .

Hey king-saproling - I have Transmogrifying Licid but I'm still wondering it it will be worth the inclusion, but I may finally give it a try. Thanks for suggestions of Aphetto Alchemist and Thada Adel, Acquisitor both are indeed interesting :)

On the offhand - to add cards I first need to remove some, so, does anyone have any suggestions on what to remove from the deck? These few I think didn't play too well so far: Shambling Suit , Treasure Mage (unless I add Caged Sun I have like ONE artifact with CMC 6+), Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep (a bit too pricey with kicker, mediocre without it), Lotus Petal

I have replaced Sarkhan Unbroken with Coiling Oracle , since the latter card is far better for this deck, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.06 to 4.02, and I also replaced Caged Sun with The Immortal Sun ; I know that I still have one planeswalker remaining, but he is in this deck primary for his triggered ability, and the possibility of drawing him in the same game as the sun is 2 out of 100, or 1 out of 50.

I have replaced Ral Zarek with Ionize , which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.92 to 3.90, because, although Ral is awesome, his ultimate ability is based too heavily on luck, and I also wished to replace Caged Sun with The Immortal Sun .

I have replaced Mirari with Arcane Encyclopedia , which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.95 to 3.92, which gives this deck the second-lowest mana curve of all my EDH decks, which is very nice.

I also am considering removing Ral Zarek in favor of Ionize , because, while Ral is awesome, it is always good to have another counterspell, and that would also allow me to remove Caged Sun in favor of The Immortal Sun ; what does everyone else say about that?

I also am considering replacing Edric, Spymaster of Trest with Coiling Oracle , but I am very uncertain about that; the oracle can be copied, but Edric is so amazing that I feel that any deck that can support his colors should contain him; what does everyone else say about that?

Also, if I do remove two of the three planeswalkers in this deck, I could likely replace Caged Sun with The Immortal Sun , which would be better in a three-colored deck.

Trying to accommodate so many mechanics in a deck can be a hindrance. In my opinion, mill is pretty weak in multiplayer EDH because there are a ton of cards that can recover cards from the yard or just shuffle back in. On top of that, most mill cards only target one player. If I were you I would tune the deck to be mostly mill or take out most of the mill cards aside from maybe Undead Alchemist . If you want to go into mill, it is a go big or don't go at all kind of thing. If you want to go mill you should add cards like Mindcrank , Mind Funeral , Sire of Stagnation , Jace, Memory Adept , Nephalia Drownyard , Duskmantle, House of Shadow , and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur as well as cards that can copy spells on the stack as to target multiple players similar to Naru Meha, Master Wizard , Echo Mage , and Meletis Charlatan .

I'm also not a big fan of Doubling Cube in this deck as I don't see it being very useful most of the time. I think it could be replaced by a better mana rock or mana multiplier like Chromatic Lantern , Thran Dynamo , Caged Sun , Gauntlet of Power or just a different card all together if mana isn't usually an issue. The same goes for Fabricate . It is definitely a good card, but you do not have enough targets to justify running it to me. I would run Diabolic Tutor over it as it only costs 1 more mana and can tutor for anything. I don't see a lot of recursion to be running Entomb . If you are just trying to thin your deck then run Buried Alive , though, again, none of your creatures benefit from sitting in your graveyard and you only a couple of ways to get them back out.

The land base looks pretty solid. I would suggest you try to pick up a Watery Grave .

Not sure how you or your play group feel about infinite combos, but adding Triskelion to the deck along side the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed you have is infinite damage to everyone provided no one has a way to interrupt it.

If running all these mechanics are fun for you then keep it as is; I'm not trying to tell you how to have fun. My suggestion to you is that you try to focus your deck to do only a few things because when you run all these mechanics you spread yourself pretty thin and maybe you are trying to get a bunch of zombies and you draw something you don't need as it is for a different mechanic. Running multiple cards that do the same thing is very advantageous in EDH for consistency. An example is if you want to run Animate Dead , you should also run Dance of the Dead and Necromancy . They do the same thing and increase your chance of getting a card that has that effect.

If you want, you can check out my UB Zombie deck, Zombies for days. It creates and recycles zombies. It might give you some ideas. There are also a lot of other decks you can find on this site or can google and take inspiration from.
