Clarion Ultimatum Discussion

Calling it now but my guess is Clarion Ultimatum because they like reprinting bulk rares

Worth noting that if you're looking for a cheap mana base and a lot of land-based ramp, running a lot of basics makes Clarion Ultimatum "tutor up a copy of every basic land."

So now that we have 10 Ultimatums I was thinking of making a deck out of them (not that I need another project XD). The first commander to come to mind was Ramos, Dragon Engine, though if you have another idea I'd love to hear it.

One concern I have is being as there are 10 Ultimatums all at 7cmc (10% of the deck) it could clog up the hand if we dont create another use for them like 'CMC matters' cards. Ramos does creates 10 mana for 5 counters, however each Ultimatum requires one color at 3 so I think some mana filters should be added as well.

Also of those Ultimatums Clarion Ultimatum is virtually useless in this format unless you're running Persistant Petitioners|Petitioners, Rats, or Apostles so we'll count it out unless someone comes up with a fantastic idea. A few are about playing cards for free and a few require that you have permanants in your deck/grave/field. I was initially thinking of a 'Non creature spell' theme but I'm not sure it would fit. Too much layering as Suns_Champion would say. If you'd like to weigh in here SC that'd be amazing.

So, how would you all do it? What spicy tech would you immediately toss in here to make it shine?. Let me know in the comments, and any other ideas you may have.

I'll post a list when I have one. Until then the results of suggestions are:

  • 8/10 Ultimatums included
  • Commander changed to Jodah, Archmage Eternal
  • Exploring 'Noncreature Spell' theme
  • Not many useful 'Noncreature Spell' related cards' Now exploring an Enchantress subtheme.
  • Exploring 'High CMC Matters' sub theme
  • all suggestions are being considered at this time. Will inform of any changes.

Dichotomancy Bifurcate Clarion Ultimatum i just love these kinds of "same name" cards.

Kalit, Stratifier

Legendary Planeswalker- Kalit

As long as you control exactly two permanents with the same name, the legend rule doesn't apply to those permanents.

+1 Target creature becomes a copy of target creature you control. Repeat this process once.

-2 Return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield if it has the same name as a creature card on the battlefield.

-5 For each permanent each player controls, that player may search their library for a card that has the same name as that permanent and put it onto the battlefield. Shuffle your library.


Keep it going!

Raid Bombardment and Unified Will are showing the same battle (Same with Knight of Grace and Knight of Malice)

Also, the cycle of ultimatums from alara each have a planeswalker hidden in them. (Brilliant Ultimatum has tezzeret, Cruel Ultimatum has bolas, Titanic Ultimatum has ajani, Violent Ultimatum has sarkaan, and elspeth can be seen in Clarion Ultimatum)

in Blood Artist, he is painting you with your own blood

That being said, if you control a permanent owned by someone else that you also have a copy of you can go get it with Clarion Ultimatum.

for the same cost and with much less in the way of colour restricitions, Boundless Realms is so much better. I think trying to force Clarion Ultimatum to work in EDH seems kind of pointless to me personally.
