Cryptolith Fragment Discussion

ryast on Build from Deckbuilder and HOD Decks

What is the goal of this deck? As in, how does it win, what is it trying to do? Right now, you have a few artifacts, a few minotaurs, a few zombies, and some others as creatures - maybe try and make it a bit more based on something specific, have one or two types of creatures.

If you go for full minotaur, you could use Rageblood Shaman, and a lot of minotaurs are black, so if you added black and maybe removed blue - I don't see much blue used - you could add Ragemonger. This deck has some pretty budget minotaurs that you could use.

If you decide on artifacts, keep Chief of the Foundry and Filigree Familiar, you can probably take out Snare Thopter. Cryptolith Fragment  Flip is alright, just for mana and chip damage. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is fine, but I don't see it being too useful, since you likely wont have many creatures. Crypt of the Eternals could be replaced, since it's just mana exchange and not actual mana, except colorless. Hangarback Walker is fun, if you have a way to buff it, and Memnite is good too. Tomb of the Spirit Dragon would work well for an artifact deck. This deck has some ideas you could look at, but isn't super budget.

All in all, make your deck more simple, because right now it's a mix of ideas rather than having a set win condition.

Isaiah13 on Custom Rakdos

I have a rakdos deck that is pretty well built as I have played it a lot gotten beat in the begining then tuned it to win. One thing I noticed is that you can never have too many small sorces that do damage to get rakdos out. So my recommendation is to add Seal of Fire and Cryptolith Fragment  Flip as well as some more small deathtouch or swampwalk creatures or creatures that do damage when they die. 3cmc or less. Also Winter Orb is great in this deck as soon as you drop three big creatures in one turn. Shuts down the game greatly. And Sanctum of Ugin is a have to. Great deck though. Upvoted!!! You can check out mine for more ideas if you want as well.

Tappedoutman on Neheb Burns Bridges

Ok... In my opinion you have to put inside more things which let you draw cards, because neheb could makes a lot of mana but, a lots of mana without cards to play is a little bit sad.

I suggest you Wheel of Fate, and Wheel of Fortune too. There are cards like Flame Rift Fiery Confluence Cryptolith Fragment  Flip which must be inside these deck because help you to make mana.

Try to change Fireball with Fall of the Titans powerfull card just like Devil's Play. I suggest you to try Past in Flames could be good making Banefire and similar multiple times.

GoodLuckGuy on CP#12 Kambal with Your Life

Hey again, I really like Kambal and I love the idea of doing an enchantress deck with him. As a Zur player, I'm pretty familiar with what's available in a black and white enchantments deck.

Part One

Pacifism is a strictly better version of Bound in Silence, and Grasp of Fate is a strictly better Oblivion Ring.

Vindicate and Anguished Unmaking are the best B/W removal spells ever printed, Vindicate even hits lands.

Return to Dust is amazing at getting rid of annoying permanents, going two-for-one on a 4-drop is nuts.

Last I checked, Mind Twist hasn't been banned in either 1v1 Commander format. It just kinda ends games by itself, it's hard to overstate just how difficult it is to recover from getting hit by this.

Thoughtrender Lamia will put serious pressure on your opponent's hand, especially if it comes out turn 6.

Worn Powerstone is (nearly) a strict upgrade to Sisay's Ring. Orzhov Signet is one of the fastest mana rocks you can run.

Phyrexian Totem is a really strong finisher once you've dominated an opponent's field or wiped the board.

Cryptolith Fragment  Flip is like a reverse Pristine Talisman, it's another card that can drain your opponent's life total.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is underrated in multicolor decks. With all the enchantments you'll be getting out, huge devotion is all but guaranteed.

Wrath of God is a strict upgrade to Day of Judgement. I also really like Fumigate for this deck, the more life you gain, the more of an uphill battle the fight is for your opponent.

Sunblast Angel can leave you at a huge advantage. It's not uncommon to remove someone's whole field with this.

BONUS: After wiping the board, all your pin-down auras will go away with the creatueres, Replenish get's them all back, along with any other enchantments your opponents have removed.

squirlfood on Rakdos Beatdown

I find that having playable hands comes down to flexible color mana and cheap to cast free to repeat damage. These 2 factors lead to Rakdos, Lord of Riots dropping at least turn 4.

You defiantly need more dual colord lands. As of this statment you have 3 lands and 4 mana rocks that can tap for either. that means you only have 7 chances to get a card that can pay for either the , or in Rakdos, Lord of Riots cost.

Lobber Crew, Nettle Drone, Thermo-Alchemist, Shepherd of Rot, and Endbringer are a good start for casting enablers. I will absolutly steal Plague Spitter, and Cryptolith Fragment  Flip for my desk. I would also recommend Cinder Pyromancer, and Tunneling Geopede Basically I try to run 10 or more cards that don't take mana away from casting Rakdos, Lord of Riots, while still dealing at least 1 damage to an opponent.

The decklist is out of date from my current build but I am sure you can find some fun tools in Comrad Rakdos

I hope these tips help.

Sa(l)vage build. Very cool, i didn't even know a card like salvage titan existed. You could try Cryptolith Fragment  Flip as an alternative win con. This is a big 'could' though.
