Chromium, the Mutable Discussion

freshdemon on Suggestion for an EDH deck ...

3 days ago

In my experience control decks tend to scale well to a large array of powerlevels. Assuming you run control finishers like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur or Chromium, the Mutable and not combos.

I played only control decks for like a year and was not disappointed. Now I've switched to play alot of Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest to target that one guy that always brings their competetive deck to the casual table.

Don't be that guy.

Icedragon100 on Equipment Interactions with Chromium

Hello! I've been brewing a Chromium, the Mutable Commander deck! I was curious if Chromium, the Mutable would keep abilities of Equipments if you were to use his discard ability? An example of this would be Equiping something such as Sword of Fire and Ice Will Chromium, the Mutable keep said abilities from the sword when he shrinks?

SynergyBuild I was just entertaining a different way to build Chromium, the Mutable. If you want effectiveness take out Chromium, the Mutable and instead play Zur the Enchanter. Same deck but 3 turns earlier and you play Astral Slide.

Well, that has little to do with this deck (refraining from irrelevant topics is usual), but to entertain the thought of Dakkon Blackblade as an alternative to Chromium, the Mutable, then you have the problem of him not being very effective to any form of removal or sweepers or blockers.

Onto building Chromium, the Mutable to put a lot of lands into play, we could run Land Tax, Walking Ballista, Crucible of Worlds, Tithe, Gift of Estates, Sword of the Animist, and a bunch of sub-par ramp compared to our artifacts, just to pump up a Blackblade Reforged, or we can run a Cranial Plating to synergize with the artifact ramp we already run, take you pick!

Also, Equipment though synergizing with Open the Vaults, since they don't synergize with any Replenish/Retether, they aren't veyr useful.

Nice pulls, and yeah I think you had a unique draft. 3 (even 4) color decks are SUPER easy (like easier than during Khans) to build in this format with the amount of dual lands and low rarity fixing floating around. Especially if you are base green.

I did a draft yesterday and P1-P1 Chromium, the Mutable. I proceeded to build basically a voltron commander deck. It was all card draw and control with multiple Marauder's Axe's and Reassembling Skeleton's. I only dropped 2 games the entire draft to the eventual winner who was playing mono-red with Sarkhan's Unsealing and ample Thud targets (I watched him do 18 dmg on turn 5 in the final match with a combo of Sarkhan's Unsealing, Goblin Motivator, Inferno Hellion, and Thud).

Careful with Chromium, the Mutable. He lends himself more to a Voltron style strategy which can be a little underwhelming in multiplayer games. Oloro, Sen Triplets, or Ertai is a little more control oriented if you just like the Esper colors. That being said, do what makes you happy. You never know, maybe you'll end up making an excellent deck no one else has. I keep trying to break cards in modern to no avail...but I will someday. Guaranteed. :p

Scytec I'm probably going to create an esper control deck using Chromium, the Mutable .

LittleBlueHero on Sticky for M19?

Went to supersized draft yesterday. Pack 2 Pick one was Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner and from then on I was drafting more with my heart than my head. Pack 4 pick one was Lathliss, Dragon Queen and I was passed Chromium, the Mutable by the shop owner who laughed and said "I'm handing you money". I admittedly scooped that up even though it wasn't in my colors. Things seemed like they would work out.

Having the two big dragons you'd think I would have found a way to make things work but it was REALLY hard to fix for three colors, I only ever saw/got one relevant dual and one Manalith. I lost most games because I was stuck on 2 colors. Next draft I will not try and force 3 color. Ended up going 1-2.

Turns out though one of the guys a the table drafted almost all the fixers and played some weird 4 color deck to a 2-1 record. So it might not be that fixing is light, we just had this strange strategy to contend with.

Prize pack had Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, so even though I did terrible I consider ending up with 3 elder dragons a good day for this limited player.
