City of Traitors Discussion

sylvannos on Can Thorn of Amethyst and ...

It's really hard to do because you don't have Cloudpost, City of Traitors, Mishra's Workshop, and so on. Part of the reason artifact Prison is possible in older formats is because you have a "symmetrical" effect that isn't symmetrical because one side has more mana than the other.

We also don't have anything close to Wasteland (or even Rishadan Port) in Modern. The closest thing is Ghost Quarter'ing your opponent and them failing to find after you've done it to them over and over via something like Crucible of Worlds or Life from the Loam.

Maybe we'll have a prison deck viable if WotC goes nuts and unbans Cloudpost or prints something that makes turn 2 Tron consistent. Or if we get some sort of new mox/Lotus Petal-style card that allows for a turn 1 Trinisphere.

VietMoneys on Gitrog Erosion: All That Exists Deserves to Perish

I'm so excited to have a Gitrog deck in the family!

May I start by suggesting Ancient Tomb, City of Traitors, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, and Deserted Temple?

Also, for the love of God, get thee a Swarmyard!

Charge on, Jefe!

So stoked that the extended playgroup will have one of these guys in it at last!

May I suggest City of Traitors, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, Ancient Tomb and Deserted Temple for starters?

Also, by God, Swarmyard!

Boza on The List...

Additionally, no-one has a problem with the list, only a few cards on it (couldn't finish this point earlier); besides duals and power 9, there are few cards that are needed in more copies and are more than 100 dollars:

RL by price

  1. Transmute Artifact - more tutors in commander.
  2. Wheel of Fortune - more wheels in commander. (really, more than 100?)
  3. City of Traitors - bought out after eldrazi realese, needed in legacy.
  4. Lion's Eye Diamond - key piece of any Eternal storm deck.
  5. Mox Diamond - not a bad mox, but few applications in Legacy. 150+ range:
  6. Gaea's Cradle - elves in Legacy and commander applications.
  7. Natural Selection - really? some commander stuff I guess.

300+ range (aka more expensive than blue duals):

  1. Eureka - bad Hypergenesis is still a thing in a single Legacy deck. Could be good for Commander.
  2. Copy Artifact - Commander stuff and fringe Vintage applications.

Holy sheet range:

  1. Mishra's Workshop - 1 vintage deck.
  2. Candelabra of Tawnos - 1 legacy deck.
  3. The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale - a couple of legacy decks.
  4. Bazaar of Baghdad - 1 vintage deck.

So, including power 9 and duals there are a total of 32 cards (and Eureka is quite suspect it should be on the list) I could identify that could have any applications. Most of them are limited to 1-2 decks in any format they are currently legal in.

The reserved list has 500+ cards. If more widely available, these cards would likely be banned or restricted even further.

Tl;DR Less than 30 out of 550 cards on the RL are actually prohibitively expensive, and of those most are playable now in any format in 1 or less copies.

I believe that this has been asked before, but how well would City of Traitors fit into this deck? If you want to rush Doomsday then it seems ok, but you know the deck better than I do, so I am sure there is some reason why it isn't in the deck.

Basically the title. Im building Sneak and Show in Legacy, and Im not able to get my hands on a pair of City of Traitors just yet. Im wondering if Crystal Vein would be a suitable budget replacement until I can acquire them. My current spread of fast mana is 3x Ancient Tomb and 2x City of Traitors. Not looking to compete in tournaments, just playing competicasually amongst friends. Thanks!

Casey4321 You know me and themes, I dig this one.

Couple of includes (the *'d ones are for especially for her land trigger)

City of Traitors*

Gemstone Mine*

Gaea's Cradle

Lotus Vale - I think is a lot better than Scorched Ruins in a mono deck, but I mean if you can, include em both.

Havenwood Battleground*

Hickory Woodlot*

You could maybe do more stax effects like Smokestack?

Also Hall of Gemstone :P
