Thanks a lot for your response. I thought (hoped) this was how I could make my play. I really like this synergie, it shows once more the power of Chromatic Star is not to be taken lightly

Yes, there's a way to make that work:

  • Activate the mana ability of Chromatic Star
  • The Star's triggered ability is put onto the stack
  • Respond by casting Noxious Revival (since it's an instant), using the currently in your mana pool
  • If there are no more responses, Revival resolves and puts a card on top
  • If there are no more responses, the Star trigger resolves and you draw the card

Note that this doesn't work with Chromatic Sphere, since with the Sphere you draw the card as part of the mana ability resolving.

Hi, if i make a green mana with Chromatic Star to cast Noxious Revival. Is it still possible to draw the card i put on top of my library using the draw-effect of the Chromatic Star?

I'd definitely add 2 more copies of Ancient Stirrings, and bring up to 4 Expedition Map

Then, why don't you add Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star? It gives you green mana and also lets you draw a card. A cheap alternative could be Prophetic Prism. To make space for theese cards I'd cut Elvish Mystic, Elvish Rejuvenator and Llanowar Elves

Some very budget creatures could fit this deck are Endless One or Bane of Bala Ged, but I also really like Sundering Titan and Artisan of Kozilek

i really don't think the tron lands are gonna get the hondens out any quicker than just normal ramp. at best, you're 5cmc honden's are a turn 3 play IF you still have a Chromatic Star/Chromatic Sphere in play. and if you're only running 1 sphere, your chances of that are greatly reduced. so you're basically looking at not really playing anything impactful until turn 4. and at 1 Honden per turn from turn 4 onward, with no interaction, your opponent will just murder you.

Looks like you better get a Mox Amber for this deck now! I will also suggest you add in Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star since they can be used to get you an additional draw and filter mana if you really need it, they definitely have more utility than the other 1 cmc cards you have here. Helm of Awakening is 2 cmc but it's the cheapest colorless cost reduction card that will make all of your 1 cmc cards cost 0, which is totally worth it.

I'd argue for the last Krark-Clan Ironworks, 4x Mox Opal and an additional copy of Myr Retriever and Scrap Trawler as they greatly push the infinite and ramp hard, as well as a full set of Chromatic Star, Terrarion, and get the last two Ichor Wellsprings. Two Open the Vaults and some amount of Reshapes, Whir of Inventions, and Thoughtcasts will finish it off. You can drop the Pia's Revolutions, Memnites, Ornithopters, and Disciple of the Vaults, maybe drop some Chromatic Spheres.

For landbase, a full set of Spire of Industry, Adarkar Wastes, and a single island can be run instead of all of the lands except Ghost Quarter and Darksteel Citadel.

SamsWrath on Grenzo ft. DJ Doomsday | Competitive Primer

Roally, I am considering trying out Shadowblood Egg as a replacement for Springleaf Drum. My reasoning for this is as follows:

  1. Shadowblood Egg offers the perfect replacement to play Grenzo, Dungeon Warden (BR).
  2. I usually only get 1-2 uses of Springleaf Drum per game and when its a one-use card all it generally does is offer replacement--colorless to black or red.
  3. Just like Chromatic Star and Chromatic Sphere, Shadowblood Egg offers an additional path when building a Doomsday pile--put Dark Ritual or Lion's Eye Diamond on top of the pile and use it to draw a card.
  4. Shadowblood Egg offers the chance to draw a card after tutoring with Imperial Seal or Vampiric Tutor

The best overall scenario I can think of for Shadowblood Egg would be something like this:

Also, I have been using Mox Amber over Jeweled Amulet and I have to say I am pleased with the results. I get to use my Mox Amber every game I cast it whereas, with Jeweled Amulet I only actually use it about 50% of the time when I draw it because it depends on me having extra mana to charge it. With regard to Grim Monolith, I have been running it as well and I typically use it to combo out or as ramp I can use with other cards that allow me to filter mana like the rituals and the priests/apprentice. The extra ramp from it has been nothing short of excellent especially when pulling it after casting Ad Nauseam.
