Crucible of the Spirit Dragon Discussion

Crucible of the Spirit Dragon ? Seems pretty good - if you have extra mana lying around put it into this guy, if you don't it just taps for a colorless. Not to mention it's very flavorful.

I've been thinking about this idea a bit and I'd like to suggest you want to instil the value of land in new players, right at the beginning. When I started, same as most I suspect, I thought land was boring but necessary. These days I couldn't imagine putting together a burn deck and not adding Ramunap Ruins or an artifact deck without Darksteel Citadel / Buried Ruin... My current casual deck leverages Mirrorpool to duplicate spells like Soul Spike which I'm "casting" for free (well 3 cards). I'd suggest you probably want a deck that uses non-basic lands, maybe a dragon deck with Crucible of the Spirit Dragon and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker, something that shows lands don't need to be boring...

Also, you seem very concerned with Niv's mana cost, so why do you have so many lands and artifacts that produce colorless mana? Also, Crucible of the Spirit Dragon and Haven of the Spirit Dragon are worth a shot for your commander mana fixing.

I'd recommend running a Crucible of the Spirit Dragon. It has helped me when my early game plays aren't getting drawn, and you can always add the counter at an opponents end step so you can leave something untapped for responses on their turn.

Kilnmouth Dragon is a card nobody knows about or expects until you beat their faces in with it.
Rhystic Tutor seems better than Diabolic to me, especially if you don't have a more controlling deck in your playgroup.
I'm also surprised not to see a Crucible of the Spirit Dragon for the occasions where you aren't curvingout perfectly.

To activate that ability you'll have to pay , for it's cost. Unless you have other abilities that can have you untap Crucible of the Spirit Dragon, you won't be able to activate that ability again that turn.
In other words no, it's not like you pay the in exchange for the storage counter, you pay the to activate the ability that happens to put a storage counter onto it.
