Crypt of the Eternals Discussion

Heliogabale on Discarding Dragon Specters

4 weeks ago

This is exactly the style of deck I like. I also enjoy pushing the themes to their full extent, looking for unusual wincons and infinite combos are banned in my group.

I believe you have too many lands. I use the formula 40-(Rocks+Fetch+Other Mana sources), which in this case would be around 35. I suggest you lose the Vivids and the Bounce Lands, and add Crypt of the Eternals, Geier Reach Sanitarium and Crosis's Catacombs. If you own them or have budget, you could easily replace the lesser fetch lands (Evolving Wilds, Grixis Panorama, Terramorphic Expanse) with Blood Crypt, Steam Vents and Watery Grave.

If you are not going to use Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip as your commander, should he not at least be in the deck? Maybe replace Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver, which is expensive and doesn't do much in here?

This deck needs Sire Of Insanity. And Rackling. And Bloodchief Ascension.

I would add more wheels: Reforge the Soul and Wheel and Deal.

I am not usually very fond of tutors, but you really need Megrim or Liliana's Caress (or Bloodchief Ascension) to kickstart, so in this case I would run 2 or 3.

Many of your discard spells, like Cruel Ultimatum are single occurrence, whereas Liliana of the Veil can activate each turn.

Scourge of the Throne is a nice dragon.

If you have one or your group allows proxy, add Chains of Mephistopheles will turn these wheels into double the discard and prevent your opponents from building hands. Note that it affects you as well.

Oath of Scholars may very well backfire; if you are the only one holding cards, you are basically letting your opponent draw 3 each turn. I am not sure what the rationale is for including it.

I hope this inspires you!

One of the things you might look at is the use of some NON-Basic Land cards that are B/W and when tapped you gain 1 Life, like Crypt of the Eternals. In addition other Non-Basic Land cards that are W/(U/G/R) and B/(U/G/R) like Cinder Barrens and Clifftop Retreat also open up the possibility of expanding your deck to include multi-colored cards or in this case Red cards if desired.

Also you might consider adding Regal Bloodlord to your deck to work in concert with Ajani's Pridemate and Diamond Mare. These are also aided by Crypt of the Eternals as discussed above. Also if you decide replace some the Basic Land cards with Non-Basic Land cards, take a look at Sunscorched Desert for possible inclusion.

I also have thought of building a LifeGain deck built around Felidar Sovereign for Modern. +40 life is a hard number to get, but building the deck would be fun, irrespective of its playability.

These suggestions may not be exactly what you're looking for, but I hope I've given you some food for thought.

Crypt of the Eternals also kinda blows. Filter lands are inherently slow. Perhaps Exotic Orchard instead. You have 3 colors, so the chances that other players have the colors you need are high.

I'd cut out Crypt of the Eternals. Apart from the 1 life gained, it's not a three color land, it's just a color limited filter land like Unknown Shores or Shimmering Grotto.

You could try Crosis's Catacombs instead. It's kind of like a Karoo, but comes into play untapped and it's a three color land.

I'm also trying to build a Traxos deck, the lands in your build can all be collorless. You should consider filling it with utility lands. Here you go:Arch of Orazca - Cabal Stronghold if you run only swamps with this. - Cascading Cataracts and Dunes of the Dead there is this white saga that destroys all lands after all. - Cradle of the Accursed - Crypt of the Eternals 1 life, it's something... - Endless Sands - Field of Ruin - Grasping Dunes - Hashep Oasis - Hostile Desert - Ifnir Deadlands - Inventors' Fair Basicly a must run in this deck - Ipnu Rivulet - Scavenger Grounds - Sequestered Stash - Shefet Dunes - Sunscorched Desert - Zhalfirin Void -

As far as lands go, there's also Crypt of the Eternals, and cards like Ifnir Deadlands are still viable since a good portion of the lands you're playing can do mana fixing, like Painted Bluffs or Spire of Industry, though that might break the mono-neutral rule.

I believe Crypt of the Eternals is illegal in your deck due to it being able to produce red. Granted this is off normal EDH rules and im not 100% if those some color identity rules are applied for Brawl or not.
