With Chromatic Star or Prophetic Prism it's easy to fix black mana. But something like Dispel would not require that much luck on color fixing and would be a better choice. Thanks for pointing that out. Red Elemental Blast is a great suggestion too.

I'm running a 4 of Expedition Map and 3 of Crop Rotation to help with assembling tron.

Ponder is a great suggestion. Which card would you cut to play it?

Against classic tron Stony Silence is backbreaking, it catches all their eggs (Chromatic Star, Chromatic Sphere, Relic of Progenitus), so they can't dig for their large threats, or answers for your hate pieces, it disables both Expedition Map & Oblivion Stone.

(And it also hates on lantern, and affinity)

If you play Grixis, then the best bet is probably to go back to the roots, and simply draw more answers than they can match with threats. Which can be done with the 8-command lists.

Hi @Madhava tks for the tips! I played one time with Inventors' Fair its a good utility land, but with the grow of Field of Ruin in modern, it was hard to to play without lands, and now i'n testing with Wastes.

I played a time with the package, but for this i need to cut Chalice of the Void and Mind Stone for Chromatic Star this make more fragile and not too worth, not all time we get nice things with Ancient Stirrings. Its good, but not too worth in build.

At the moment (and for me save this build) i'n test this build with dominaria update.

Karn, Scion of Urza is so strong in this build, give card advantage, creature advantage. I want to play with 3 at least. (Feel free to see and comment about this alternative too)

I looked for your build and this look so interesting. I see Culling Scales one time. Spyce.

You may want to go with Chromatic Star over Chromatic Sphere. Star draws you a card no matter how it goes to the graveyard and with the Sphere you have to sac it.

i'd personally take out unknown shores (since youre mono B you dont need filtering its better to have the extra mana for your drain) also you're not going to need as many drains if you have more card advantage so i'd personally stick with a set of drain life plus other draw spells are net gain or net neutral + a blocker whereas stars are net neutral, i'd personally run this deck much differently given the chance just because tron is a little clunky so i'll give you a list of edits id run in my own variant and you can decide whether or not you like them (either way i enjoy your deck idea enough to spend this much time on talking about edits)



-3 Consume Spirit

-2 Unknown Shores

-4 Chromatic Sphere

-2 Perilous Shadow

-3 Tragic Slip

-4 Dash Hopes

-2 Distress

-3 Chromatic Star


+1 Drain Life

+3 Swamp

+1 Initiates of the Ebon Hand

+2 Gray Merchant of Asphodel

+4 Prophetic Prism

+4 Darkness

+4 Dusk Legion Zealot

+4 Read the Bones

i feel that having things in playsets and using fogs to buy for time is better vs a card like dash hopes which usually requires that you're online with the engine to start with filtering, that and i believe the persistent filtering via Prophetic Prism is a better way to ensure you're casting spells on schedule, on top of that Gary keeps you afloat and acts as a good blocker vs Burn vs the other fella who gains no life

there is actually an artifact deck that plays Krakr-Clan Ironworks called KCI Combo or eggs. you might want to look at that.

I dont think Revolution is a good combo piece because your opponent decides wether he wants to be dealt damage or giive you the card

A few things eggs plays that might also help youRevolution and ironworks. might combo very nice with small artifacts that are drawing cards such as Chromatic Star, Terrarion and Ichor Wellspring

Scrap Trawler is a nice additional combo piece for such a deck

Inventors' Fair and Academy Ruins would be decent 1-2 offs as utility lands Darksteel Citadel is of course also a must.

In order to make the deck comply with basic EDH laws, sol ring has been added.


-Sol Ring

-Lotus Petal

-Lion's Eye Diamond

-Chromatic Star

-Chromatic Sphere

-Swords to Plowshares


-Argivian Archaeologist

-Auriok Salvagers


-Weathered Wayfarer

-Kor Castigator

-Reckless Bushwhacker

-Kor Bladewhirl

-1x Mountain

-1x Plains

-Open the Armory

-Stone Haven Outfitter

-Akoum Battlesinger

Unfortunately, the build is veering more and more away from allies, towards boros eggs, abusing ally synergy, without much actually in the way of winning through ally beats. Not the original intention, but I'm trying to keep it as on theme, while actually giving it any semblance of a competitive deck.

Now if they just at least print some or even most of this, I will be happy with the set: Noble Hierarch,Demonic Tutor, Karn Liberated or Mox Opal, Arcbound Ravager, the tron lands,Ancient Stirrings, Chromatic Star and Chromatic Sphere.
