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

Whenever a land's ability adds one or more mana of the chosen color to your mana pool, add one additional mana of that color to your mana pool.

Caged Sun Discussion

Phaetion on What has been your experience ...

Unless you're up against another colorless deck, I find that removing a Wastes for the Lens is a nice way for you to benefit. It works kind of like Caged Sun in that only you will really benefit from it.

TemnoTsar on Aetherborn Tribal

2 days ago

Aetherborn are one of my top fave tribes out there now. I really hope Wizards comes back to them in the near future.

I actually just finished a Yahenni commander deck Yahenni, Partisan of the Bulk. I might have to make a casual Aetherborn deck now.

If you want to make the tribe even stronger, might I suggest adding a few more lords: Adaptive Automaton, Brass Herald, Door of Destinies, Obelisk of Urd, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Hall of Triumph, Paragon of Open Graves are a few good options. I would add Adaptive Automaton since it too becomes an Aetherborn to keep the theme.

Also a few bounce cards wouldn't hurt for Gonti's effect to happen more than once. I saw a really good Gonti commander deck where the deck was created to steal other player's cards and turns. It looked really fun to play, but my days of hunting cards down and buying singles will be over once I finish my rat commander deck.

Hope my advice helps, and have fun.

Caged Sun cus mana and +1/+1 is pretty good

Ruby Medallion

The More Monkeys Route

Sundial of the Infinite = more monkeys

Mirror Gallery = MORE MONKEYS

You know how you get MORE monkeys than that? more combat phases!!

Aggravated Assault

Sword of Feast and Famine

Seize the Day

World at War

Fury of the Horde

ETB effects

Okay okay maybe for some reason you don't want 50 Ragavans and you are focusing on ETB effects...then WHERE IS YOUR Panharmonicon??? IS BRAGO STILL USING IT FOR SOME REASON?!?!?

Impact Tremors is good but I like me some Warstorm Surge

You know what makes a lot of ETB effects? You are playing mono-red Krenko, Mob Boss

He's called the boss for a reason, you are going to have to make some little guys for him

Hordeling Outburst, Goblin Rally, Mogg War Marshal, Beetleback Chief, Siege-Gang Commander, Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder


I can tell that you are playing voltron so you might want to consider Godo, Bandit Warlord even though you dont have any other Bushido Warriors

Argentum Armor

Basilisk Collar

Champion's Helm

Loxodon Warhammer

Inquisitor's Flail

Thanks for commenting Spudding,

I agree with the switch, although I am feeling lately like switching Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, and Doubling Cube, Mana Reflection, for Mana Flare, Dictate of Karametra, and Heartbeat of Spring. I have been running into difficulty giving my opponents extra mana....

With all the fetches i have been finding that Caged Sun nets me between 3-4 extra mana, which I agree isn't efficient enough. I think I may end up adding in a Mind Stone to replace it with card draw instead. Do you have any other Mana recommendations? Sans combos.

I am right in the middle of a restructuring of the deck. In many multiplayer games I end up using the "non-threatening" tactic allowing my opponents to be more concerned with other threats. I'm looking at adding about ten-eleven pillow-fort cards;

Norn's Annex

Sphere of Safety

Windborn Muse

Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts

No Mercy


Ghostly Prison


Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker

Dissipation Field

Collective Restraint

What do you think?

Sorry for the novel! I was right in the process of editing it.

Caged Sun might be a too inefficient in 5 colours Mana Reflection might be better

I hadn't considered it, but I should. Usually for multicolored decks I don't include cards like Caged Sun but white is definitely the vast majority here. I will give this a look and will hopefully have an update soon. Thanks for the suggestion.

This deck seems pretty enjoyable man! I like the tribal theme. have you considered Caged Sun or similar cards to give some buffs since so many of your clerics are white?

BodhiQL on Azami, Lady of Hogwarts

This looks pretty good. As an Azami player myself, I saw the list and came to check it out. Here is my list. It is based on the paper copy of the deck, which I'm still working on, and some good cards like Snapcaster Mage and Glen Elendra Archmage have not yet been acquired. For recommendations, I have a few that you may want to try out. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx will be your favorite land immediately. Palinchron combos with Nykthos and High Tide for infinite mana. Battlefield Thaumaturge lets you cast Curse of the Swine, or any X spell that targets creatures, for two blue mana. Clever Impersonator can copy your Caged Sun, and Isochron Scepter with an imprinted High Tide can make lots of mana. Consecrated Sphinx is just value, and goes well with the +1 on Jace Beleren. You may want cards like Spellbook to keep your cards. Also, Mindslaver+Academy Ruins or Master of Waves can be an alternate wincon, especially when paired with Caged Sun. Tamiyo, the Moon Sage is also really good. She can help you win with her -2 if you have Lab Maniac in play and you just need to draw a few more cards. If you can get her ultimate, you basically win. I play Stasis, because I hate people. This can go good with Tamiyo because she can tap down a land one of your opponents plays, causing them to not build up more stuff while everybody is under Stasis. When Aether Revolt comes you, make sure you get a Baral, Chief of Compliance. If you don't know what he does, look it up. It's really good in Azami in the early game, which is when we are weak, before we can get cards in hand and mana to play things.
