Celestial Dawn Discussion

Gidgetimer on Mystic Forge reduced costs and ...

I didn't see that Celestial Dawn was on top of the library. If you can cast it, it will cost 2. Use the same timestamp rules that I explained for determining if it was colorless for the Ugin cost reduction and apply them to the Mystic Forge ability.

You will either pay 2 or 3 for Celestial Dawn depending on the timestamps of Mycosynth Lattice and Painter's Servant . Ugin only reduces the generic portion of mana costs, therefore the max discount on Celestial Dawn is going to be 1. If Painter's Servant came into the battlefield first Mycosynth Lattice will make your cards colorless after they were made a color and Ugin's discount will apply. If Mycosynth Lattice entered the battlefield first Painter's Servant makes them a color after they become colorless and they are no longer colorless and Ugin's discount doesn't apply.

In this specific example all your non-land permanents and non-land cards are white, and lands and land cards will be either colorless or the color you picked with Painter according to the same timestamp rules as before. If Painter enters after Celestial Dawn all non-land permanents and cards will be both colors and land permanents and cards will be the painter color.

Mystic Forge + Mycosynth Lattice + Ugin, the Ineffable + Painter's Servant on my battlefield.

Celestial Dawn on top of my library.

Q1: How much do I need to pay to cast Celestial Dawn ? 1 or 2?

Celestial Dawn makes all permanents white. Painter's Servant makes all permanents the color of my choice in addition to its other color.

Q2: Does Celestial Dawn override Painter's Servant ability so all permanents are just white or will my permanents and spells be both white and another color from Painter's Servant ?

Thank you

BMHKain on Some ideas for Cuts & ...

cEDH Boros is so CRUEL, they'll never give up!

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


Before I begin, I might as well introduce a new OC Planeswalker of Mine: Tyris, Who Blazes Where She Walks.

As night fell, and the creatures of the Night thrived in such desire for flesh, somebody decided her duties as a member of the Boros Legion aren't yet finished much less satisfied. Her name is Tyris. But unlike even those like her, who showed high promise at an early age, Tyris rose the ranks rather quickly, so much so that Tajic even honored her cause as a member of a military-style Guild known as the Boros Legion. While Tyris' Parents were happily married, her father, a high ranking, & variously decorated soldier, was slaughtered during the War of the Spark; not by just any Eternal, He could handle them fine. It was the God-Eternals; Deceased Gods from the Plane of Amonkhet revived as Lazotep on a Divine level of power not even Aurelia could handle on her own. Even after the War concluded, Ugin forced an unsparked Nicol Bolas to his Meditation Realm, where Ugin watched over Bolas for the last of their days; No way for someone to get in. No way for someone to get out. Several Months passed after the fact, & even after Niv-Mizzet became the True Living Guildpact, the usual Ravnican madness continued to happen, just in time for Tyris to be conceived in a Universe-Sized City by a mere Widow. As Tyris became older, she was already more aware of the dangers than her Mother would even think. Domri Rade was killed before Tyris' Birth, but even after the War, & Ravnican Life having no choice but to accept Planeswalkers for what they are; Universe-Hopping Pranksters nobody wished to have on any Plane of Existence. To Tyris, it was perhaps, the most sorrowful nightmare ever; Civilian life demanding the Guilds to realize if they can unify in the War of the Spark , why not just have all 10 Guilds set their enemyship aside, & realize, such enemyship would be of a really great weapon in the first place?

Tyris thought about that for so long. She even investigated the House of Dimir for a while now; the very Guild the Boros League hated the most above all others. But even with Ilharg, the Raze-Boar now brought to Fruition, Tyris wondered to herself:

(Why did we make a Bond to those who are even worse than the House of Dimir? The Gruul Clans had a Leader that was never that mentally out of his head... , & we're allies to someone who are just Vulgar Savages, where even The House of Dimir is well focused, plenty resourceful, & are more cunning than us? Why...? The reason so many hate us is just that Aurelia enlists us just to be used as expendables...?)

Now having Second Thoughts, Tyris shook her head in regret; knowing that following in her Father's Footsteps she never knew even after she was born, whatever stories were told between a Mother+Daughter Relationship was a kind one, but she wishes never to speak ill of the only family she had at all; Loneliness. Tyris knew she is nothing but an orphan. Even her fellow troops seemed more so to be strangers, than a Stepfamily at all. Such a thought: (I know what is feels to be alone... & I've been this way my entire life.)

Tyris knew there were two things left she can lose: Herself, & an already ignited Planeswalker Spark. She decided to gamble w/ both. She then opened the doors to Aurelia 's Quarters. She seemed just as concerned for her Planeswalker Soldier; Tyris wasn't done with her duties, she still needed an audience to Aurelia herself. Aurelia , usually very serious upon her entire Guild, couldn't help but feel pity to Tyris, & as she saw it so, likewise for a Guildleader known for having a guild whose beliefs are considered Wrong & Unjust; even for the Boros League...

End of Part 1.

Alright enough FanFiction crap. Let's get to the topic in question; several in fact.

For those who haven't paid attention after all this; I decided to put Feather, the Redeemer in the deck. BUT, she won't be the commander. I wanted to use her as a Sunforger Package on legs (Even though that might not be the right term in this case.). Since Sunforger is not good in cEDH (I'm not giving up anytime soon. Please make your criticisms end as I'm planning to make a Community Deck for cEDH Boros Deck Users; submitting cards to what could be a literal Guide/Primer for this.

For Feather, the Redeemer, I have the following Instants & Sorceries; but I've no Graveyard; just a Rest in Peace to negate all Graveyard activity.

For Sorceries thus far:


Idyllic Tutor


Wheel of Fortune

Winds of Change

Yes, it's that low, but the Instants are crazier:


Angel's Grace

Apostle's Blessing

Boros Charm

Chaos Warp

Dawn Charm

Enlightened Tutor


Generous Gift


Lapse of Certainty

Mana Tithe

Path to Exile


Rebuff the Wicked

Red Elemental Blast

Return to Dust

Swords to Plowshares

Teferi's Protection

Wear / Tear

Wild Ricochet

For this, we can cut out the following kinds of cards:

  1. Tutors (How can you reuse Tutors?)
  2. Self-Exiling Cards (They're too powerful to reuse here.)
  3. Misc. (Basically your ideas for Wild Cards.)

Outside of these kinds of cards, I wonder if there are any that can target your own creatures. & no. I'm not using them for the sake of Ol' Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav . I'm using them over & over because of Aforementioned Rest in Peace .

Which leaves us w/ a new dilemma: Paradox Engine finally got banned, but it at least gave us back a Potential threat to build upon: Painter's Servant . Forcing everyone to just one color is going to be crazy. But the question lies w/ another part of the question: Which Color to Work With? has Blood Moon , which makes all Non Basic Lands Mountain s, but Celestial Dawn makes your lands Plains . Which of these two to use? Or should I take a dare, & go for ? Jaya Ballard, Task Mage would love to say "GOTCHA!!!"

Also, for the sake of cEDH, I just want to know if there are any in the cEDH Community Post-Tier 3 Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav . I mean, there has to be more than ever, right?

Also, what to cut? I'm starting to Doubt Eldrazi Displacer here. In addition; you would have to think like a cEDH Player; & for that matter, a cEDH Player that approves of Boros in this Subformat.

Now, if you don't mind, I've an account to Archidekt to make...

TortillaConfetti on sen triplets artifact deck

8 months ago

Hey! It's nice to see some other people playing/building the Triplets, I've been playing them since 2009 when I pulled the card on a Alara booster pack, now...Do you have any budget in mind? Paradox Haze + Sen Triplets you could play two of your opponents hand on your turns.

Mycosynth Lattice could be a nice add because it allows you to abuse your commander effect, giving you a Celestial Dawn kind of effect.

Upvoted your deck, seems pretty fun, also if you could review mine, I would appreciate, thanks! :D Milkshake Stealing Sisters

Color fixing in five colors is difficult. I'd recommend Mana Confluence and City of Brass for your deck, maybe even Prismatic Omen or Celestial Dawn , a pet card of mine for fixing colors. As for a win condition, if you're not planning on going beats with your commander, there's not a ton of payoff in the deck right now after everyone's permanents are gone but yours. I understand that salt is a prerequisite for this deck but if there's something that bothers players more than boardwipe tribal, it's being forced to sit through multiple turn rotations where you don't win from your advantage. Might recommend more x finishers like Torment of Hailfire or something like Rise of the Dark Realms . Last thought urborg/ coffers is extremely ambitious in five colors, recommend Crop Rotation and even Tempt with Discovery

TortillaConfetti on Sen Triplets Control V2

8 months ago

Hey man! Love to see some other people playing the Sen Sisters these days, I'm still tweaking a bit mine, so if you have any suggestion, you are free to leve your toughts on the comment section! ----> The Lil Control Sisters Some auto includes I think for this deck are Celestial Dawn (it is around 1.50 bucks) and Paradox Haze (3.50 I think) so you can hard abuse the Triplets effects, Inventors' Fair can bring a lot of value to the deck since you are running 15 artifacts. For the rest...I think it looks good, hard control since you will be winning by taking your opponents win conditions, I don't know how much you plan on spending on this one, but cards like Propaganda and Norn's Annex can be useful since everyone on the table will target you as soon as the Triplets hit board.

  1. PD: Really would appreciate if you can also review mine :)
