Cryptolith Rite Discussion

Steelspike on What personal values do you ...

1) I firmly adhere to the "live and let live" philosophy. Translated as let people play their decks. I refuse to run a Cyclonic Rift because it destroys gameplay. I also hate Gonti, Lord of Luxury and that kind of "Imma play YOUR deck" style.

2) If people aren't having fun, it's not a commander game. Period. I build decks with wacky interactions because I like to see folks' reactions.

3) Counterspells need to be limited to verified threats, not for a minor combo piece like a Chromatic Lantern or Cryptolith Rite.

4) Infinite combos need to win. The. Game. Not durdle until everyone ragequits.

5) Turn 3 "kill the table" combos need to die. Ok. Great. You win. Now you gotta sit there until the rest of us finish OUR game. If you complain, your deck will be banned from whatever game I'm playing and I'll intentionally slowplay just to piss you off.

6) Non-interactive decks need to die as well. If you don't want to play commander with other people, just stay home and goldfish.

With Gaea's Cradle, you definitely need to run Crop Rotation. I organized your deck by converted mana cost and noticed you have quite a number of cards at 5 mana. 16 of them. But you don't have very much ramp to support it. Considering your commander cost 6, and his triggered ability costs 3, you really need to ramp hard in order to have the most successful turns. Plus, landing a big dragon on turn 4 is nothing to scoff at. You've got Selesnya Signet, Gruul Signet, and Boros Signet are good in general. Thran Dynamo and Worn Powerstone are favorites of mine if you're okay with colorless mana. For a token deck, Cryptolith Rite works wonders. I would cut down on the number of 5 mana cards. Mogg Infestation can be detrimental. Juniper Order Ranger has little impact and doesn't have great impact as time goes on. Conqueror's Pledge is just slow for your deck.

My spoilers in the comment above arnt working for me so im trying something different. "If you want to sift through some cards you can look at each section, but I would recommend just looking at the first grouping to start with, as I went a bit too far with the other lists. Those lists are fine to just look at ideas or "good cards" but there are far too many to call them suggestions.

UPDATE: After making an alternate option for a cEDH Boros Deck, the Gauntlet is on for what cEDH Boros Deck is worth making more; & how to build it outside of just Stax/Prison; maybe I should do Value Town? You can check both my WIP cEDH Boros Decks to see is more worth the effort, & what to cut for to 100 cards.

For now, I still need ideas for the following:

3: Incorporate an Artifact Matters Engine by using either Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast or Saheeli, Sublime Artificer. (or Rowan Kenrith; she's cool too.)

4: A creatureless 2 card(?) combo that creates Infinite Mana of any color with no Land Untap. (Should I put in Cryptolith Rite?

5: A Creatureless 2 card (??) Infinite Draw combo.

6: Any noncreature card that protects Me as the Player & My Walkers (They are now different Targets to choose.)

9: Mystic Barrier + A way to copy this spell (& maybe other similar stuff?).

So what are your opinions/ideas on these? These are vital for a deck variant like this one...

That said, any ideas? Remember, NO CREATURES.

Hey Jabberjaw46! Ha nice guy colors. Never thought of Naya that way but you're totally right, these colors usually don't draw much hate. So Craterhoof certainly wouldn't be bad in a deck like this, but at 8 mana he is relatively slow for this optimized version. This list usually closes the game out on turn 6, sometimes even turn 5 with some luck, so Craterhoof would hang out in our hand most games. I do see the logic behind considering him though. If we had a mass ramp piece like Cryptolith Rite but no draw, additional combat, or damage-spread (e.g. Impact Tremors) cards in hand, then Craterhoof would be useful there.
