Coldsteel Heart Discussion

SideBae on Oona's Horde

So the ‘classic’ build for Oona, Queen of the Fae involves infinite-mana loops. Strionic Resonator + Basalt Monolith , Basalt Monolith / Grim Monolith + Power Artifact , or Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal +rocks are the typical paths there. I understand if you don’t want to go infinite, though.

Ashnod's Altar is great for using tokens to power subsequent mills.

Ramp is at a premium in UB. Dimir Signet , Talisman of Dominance , Mana Vault , Coldsteel Heart , Sky Diamond , Charcoal Diamond , Mind Stone , Fellwar Stone , and (if you have access) Mox Diamond and/or Mana Crypt are excellent includes.

If you choose to include an artifact ramp package, which I highly advise you do, then thirty-nine lands becomes way too many. I’d recommend cutting six or seven.

With Laboratory Maniac , Demonic Consultation becomes an absurd card. Crafting your mana base to only have one basic and one snow-basic of each type allows you to run Tainted Pact , which I like more.

Ponder and Preordain are nearly auto-includes in blue EDH decks. Brainstorm is good if the deck has fetches, even if they’re the slow fetches like Bad River .

I agree with xaarvaxus: Black Vise seems sub-optimal here. I actually think the whole ‘punish for number of cards in hand’ theme is sub optimal; with Oona, Queen of the Fae as the main win-con and Laboratory Maniac as a backup, damage plans feel superfluous. I advise sticking with the other two win-cons, and utilize the new slots to further that plan.

Good luck. Lemme know if you need more help.

TCG-Player on Inclusive Rakdos Doesn't See Colour

Man, it really hurts me to see cards like Manalith and the Cluestones in commander. Also it seems to be common for decks to have way to little ramp (4 in this case). I would highly suggest running about 10 in every deck. In this deck, you might want to favor rocks that can help you cast Rakdos, Lord of Riots a turn early.
Cards that come to mind are:


There are also great colorless rocks, as well as rocks that don't help you cast Rakdos early, but that can give you big advanteges in the mid- to lategame. Please consider that you might not always be able to count on Rakdos's ability to cast your expensive creatures. If your commander gets stolen or permanently removed, you should have ways to not outright lose:

Love seeing decks running Pox . Smallpox is similar, and I’ve had good results with it.

Words of Waste is more powerful when paired with Geth's Grimoire . This also makes Liliana of the Veil all the more powerful, if not less pricey.

Phyrexian Obliterator is a good card when it comes to blocking, especially in a mono-black deck.

I’m surprised you’re not running Animate Dead , Necromancy or Reanimate . These cards, especially if paired with Entomb / Buried Alive and Dark Ritual can put down a fatty of your choice real fast. Massacre Wurm is a good reanimation target in addition to your Grave Titan .

Ramp is a premium in EDH. Mox Diamond and Mana Crypt set the gold standard after Sol Ring , with Mana Vault and Chrome Mox following them. Unfortunately, these cards will cost you about the same as a black-market kidney. Charcoal Diamond , Coldsteel Heart , Mind Stone , Prismatic Lens and Lotus Petal are affordable options to consider. Also, with a lot of 2-drop-rocks, Ancient Tomb becomes a powerful t1 play —- it’s about $20 now, after the reprint in UMA.

Toxic Deluge is a good board-wipe to consider.

DeadTheArtist You might consider putting in more ramp. I like the deck style but your pretty top heavy and unless you consistently hit Crypt Ghast on curve it feels like your going really slow.

Reasonable - Charcoal Diamond Coldsteel Heart Mind Stone

Expensive - Mana Crypt Coalition Relic Extraplanar Lens

Looks like fun, but I would suggest a few more ramp spells.

Crypt Ghast can also combo with your Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth .

Liliana of the Dark Realms can also ramp you... eventually.

Perhaps also Coldsteel Heart and Wayfarer's Bauble ?

Cool idea! +1

Minister of Impediments could be fun in this deck.

Trusted Advisor could also be fun.

Since most of your creatures are small, you could also wreak some havoc with Meekstone . That card will definitely draw some hate tho, so be careful.

Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker could deter some attackers.

Also, I'd recommend a few more ramp spells, perhaps Wayfarer's Bauble and Coldsteel Heart ?

I love life gain strategies, but being in mono white, you're going to have a tough time ramping into your angels and drawing cards.

For ramp I would recommend Kor Cartographer and Pristine Talisman and Coldsteel Heart and Gilded Lotus and Smothering Tithe .

For card draw, I'd recommend Well of Lost Dreams and Dawn of Hope .

Looks like a fun idea, hope this helps!

I think you could use a few more ramp spells, maybe Talisman of Creativity and Coldsteel Heart and Mana Geyser ?

I think you could also make good use of Brainstorm and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and Blue Sun's Zenith and Mystic Remora and Windfall .

I always have trouble cutting cards but some cards I would consider cutting are

Hope this helps!
