Cloudstone Curio Discussion

Last_Laugh on Animar, Creature Combo

1 day ago

Imperial Recruiter deserves a spot. It enables Animar's most efficient combo line using other cards you already run.

Requires only 2 counters on Animar, 4 life, Imperial Recruiter, and only .

  1. Imperial Recruiter looking up Phyrexian Metamorph.

  2. Play Metamorph for 2 life and copy Imperial Recruiter to look up Spellseeker.

  3. Play Spellseeker to look up Neoform.

  4. Play Neoform and sac Spellseeker to look up Ancestral Statue.

  5. Play and bounce Ancestral Statue over and over until Animar is big enough to play a lethal Walking Ballista. You then use Ancestral Statue's final trigger to bounce Phyrexian Metamorph to your hand.

  6. Play Metamorph for 2 life and copy Imperial Recruiter to look up/play Walking Ballista for the win.

Requires only 2 starting counters on Animar and (no recruiter or spellseeker), (no recruiter), (needs both recruiter and spellseeker)

  1. Play Imperial Recruiter to look up Spellseeker.

  2. Play Spellseeker to look up Weird Harvest.

  3. Play Weird Harvest (X = 2) to look up Walking Ballista and Ancestral Statue.

  4. Play Ancestral Statue over and over until Animar is big enough to play a lethal Walking Ballista.

Cloudstone Curio and Equilibrium enable a bunch of infinite combos here too.

Wild Cantor, Utopia Sprawl, and Exploration are all turn 2 Animar options. I'd also recommend Beastcaller Savant as it immediately pays for itself and doubles as a combo piece.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Joking101 on Chulane iCameo (cEDH Primer)

2 days ago


Amulet of Vigor is a neat tech, but the biggest issue is that Azorius Chancery, (along with the two other bounce lands) are absolutely and entirely unplayable in cEDH. The most important turns in cEDH are the first three, so each and every mana cannot be wasted. Otherwise you will lose the game to a turn three Demonic Consultation+Thassa's Oracle or Food Chain deck. Lands that enter the battlefield tapped must offer an unbelievably powerful effect (such as Boseiju, Who Shelters All), otherwise the mana inefficiency is too significant a cost.

Beyond that, you also want to assess the function of each card outside of the combo in which it is used. Cards that are useless outside of the combo (like Laboratory Maniac or Thassa's Oracle) are not ideal to run. Many decks choose to do so because they need to win, and these are very compact, but if we can avoid it, we will.

The reason I mention this is because Jeskai Barricade and Deputy of Acquittals don't offer any value outside of the combo. In our Cloudstone Curio line, it requires fewer land requirements and fewer creature requirements; Not only that, but it requires cards that we already want to play. It doesn't make sense to play cards specifically for combos, when instead we can play combos that layer into our deck with the cards we already want to be playing.

Hopefully that explanation makes sense.

I hope you'll be able to find somthing that works! Good luck, I would reccomend trying out other options first :)

I don't know for sure but Cloudstone Curio might be cheaper?

There is also the Ghostly Flicker loop which is signifigantly cheaper.

jaymc1130 on Interaction between Gideon and Yorion

5 days ago

As far as I know the interaction with Ozolith does work. There's no specification about the types of counters Ozolith creates, just that they must be identical in number and function to the creature that left the battlefield (be they +1/+1 counters, hexproof counters, etc).

For example, with Planebound Accomplice, Cloudstone Curio, and the Ozolith in play one could use the Accomplice to cheat in a Chandra, Torch of Defiance, activate her second ability to make , use the mana to pay for Accomplice to cheat in your Gideon bouncing Chandra, activate your Gideon's second ability, turning him into a creature that is also a planeswalker, use the remaining mana to cheat in Chandra again, bouncing Gideon and "moving" all counters on him to the Ozolith. At this point the loop can be repeated infinitely until you have an arbitrarily large number of loyalty counters on the Ozolith. Get Gideon into play again (probably want to hard cast so he's not sacrificed at the end step), make him a creature again, move to combat step, then move all counters onto him. He'd be a very big boi, but wouldn't be able to ult that turn (unless you've got some sort of a Chain Veil effect lying around in addition to all this).

The bigger question is why exactly do this? It's not something that really wins on the spot, requires an elaborate set up to become a true engine, and has a lot of vulnerable points where it could be disrupted.

Hilariously janky, absolutely. Efficient enough to be competitively viable? Not a chance when it's competing in the same space as Copy Cat combo, Lukka Emrakul combo, and against decks like Neo Brand, Dredge, and Burn that would simply be too fast for it.

Cloudstone Curio makes one drops have infinite ETB/cast triggers when Seton, Krosan Protector is out. (need 2 one drop creatures)

Devoted Druid, Temur Sabertooth, Leyline of Abundance, and Seton, Krosan Protector also creates infinite ETB/cast triggers on devoted druid.

Be careful when using Beast Whisperer, Glimpse of Nature, Guardian Project, and Vanquisher's Banner as you dont want to mill yourself.

Devoted Druid, Elvish Archdruid, Temur Sabertooth, Leyline of Abundance, and Seton, Krosan Protector is the standard infinite mana.

Stone-Seeder Hierophant and Elvish Pioneer also work really well with Cloudstone Curio and another 1 drop creature. This gets all lands into play untapped from your hand.

Note that after drawing your deck you will have some combination of Mobilize, Vitalize, and Benefactor's Draught. Playing all of the one-drops (and other low-cost minions) can help get you the mana to start going infinte.

lets use our deck now.

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid is a good first option, taking your opponents lands removes most of their options

Helix pinacle is noteable (you can max out to win by your next upkeep if everything else goes wrong)

We can pump up our creatures using Leyline of Abundance, giving creatures infinite +1 +1 counters

Thorn Mammoth and Vigor remove your opponents board. If they somehow have enough toughness to still be alive, you can use one of the infinite ETB combos.

Craterhoof Behemoth is the only card we have with haste, but it shouldnt matter as they wont have lands (Gilt-Leaf Archdruid), creatures (Thorn Mammoth + Vigor), artifacts or enchantments (Acidic Slime + Temur Sabertooth)

stiefanu on Cascading Food Chain

Thanks for your suggestion! But I didn't understand what you meant by mana outlet. Anyway, even without any CFE creature, Food Chain is ridicolous with Malestrom Wanderer, since it allows to cast it multiple times in the same turn. At the moment, the deck is really focused on it, most of the wins happens with Food Chain.

As regards Cloudstone Curio, I agree with you, it's redundant. I will consider removing either it or Temur Sabertooth.

Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy is a nice suggestion, I will find a spot to try it. Although casting Maelstrom Wanderer is certainly good, it's not the aim of this deck, as MW is mainly used to dig for combos.

I would recommend updating this list. I personally like Bloom Tender it can possibly tap for bant.

Trophy Mage can find Cloudstone Curio, and Umbral Mantle

Recruiter of the Guard, and Ranger-Captain of Eos can find Shrieking Drake. the 2nd one can provide you with a silence ability when you do want to go off

Drift of Phantasms can transmute you: Cloudstone Curio, Mana Breach, Intruder Alarm, Rhystic Study, Aura Shards, or even one of your creature tutors.

Earthcraft You can stack your ETB triggers of Shrieking Drake / Whitemane Lion and tap them to earthcraft to net a mana, which goes infinite with drake.
