Cryptolith Rite Discussion

KibaAlpha on Ezuri, claw of progress

Bounce is a strength of blue.

Cyclonic Rift , River's Rebuke , Expel from Orazca

The Cryptolith Rite , Surgespanner and Kiora's Follower combo is a must.

You should remove Infect creatures.

spooky_skeleton on Green-Black Artifacts

1 week ago

I recently got the idea to make a green black artifact deck that abuses dumb artifact stuff while also using Green and Black Decks best tactics.

The Game would go something like this (ideally): T1 Thoughtseize , Memnite or Ornithopter T2 Cryptolith Rite Then I'm sort of lost. How should I abuse free mana dorks to gain an even bigger edge over my opponent? How can I just fetch that Rite to up my consistency?

I went with more creature based, but also use those creatures for token generation as well...although I went more elf tribal theme with mine. I used my instant/sorceries for keeping the board clear, protection or boosting the swarm. Beastmaster Ascension is always a helper, especially with tokens, and with Cryptolith Rite and Paradox Engine things can get interesting.

This is my deck.

Cryptolith Rite is a good mana fixer/ramp card, but you might need more ramp to go to. I'd also recommend running Zendikar Resurgent along with Mirrari's Wake. Aura Shards is a good card, too.

I'd cut Abrade and Vampiric Tutor . Abrade isn't that great, and there are better options you are already running. I think you could cut Vampiric Tutor as well. Yeah, its nice to tutor, but is there one thing you absolutely have to go get to make the deck work? I like tutors, but I don't know if its what you are looking to do here. You can cut both Arcane Adaptation and Conspiracy . You've only got a few creatures that aren't spirits already, and using two slots to make them not spirits isn't really worth it, and you've got Karmic Guide which could get them back into play if they die because they aren't buffed by your lords. You've got a decent amount of beef in your deck, so you might look at Door of Destinies and Coat of Arms . Are they just win-more cards? If you find you don't have trouble dealing damage and knocking out opponents, then you could probably scrap them, too, to make space. But play it out, and see for yourself. I know those are fun cards to cram into tribal decks, but they don't really need to go into every tribal deck. Sensei's Divining Top could probably go, too? I get that its a great EDH card, but you could probably live without it if you're needing to make room.

What I do see is a lack of card draw. You've got Rhystic Study and Beast Whisperer , which is good, but not much else. Cards like Shamanic Revelation and Rishkar's Expertise are good draw spells, and Rishkar's Expertise will let you likely drop a fatty you've just drawn. Black has great card draw options, like Greed and Phyrexian Arena to name a few. Kami of the Crescent Moon is good card draw and a spirit, which fits your theme nicely. There's also the aforementioned Zendikar Resurgent , which provides both card draw and mana ramp.

I hope I was able to help with a few cuts, at least.

Still at the ~8 cards over mark, & I want this Spirit Tribal deck to somehow be good enough in actual play... I know the meter is crap, but I still can't get over such a thing...

What would you guys suggest/cut? Is Cryptolith Rite really that bad, or is Karmic Guide worth no use here?

I'd like your thoughts, please.

olivebagel on Marath's Enchanted Wilds

I run Marath too, and your deck is awesome. I've always been curious to try enchantress effects.

I would recommend Ivy Lane Denizen , Seedborn Muse , Basilisk Collar , Mentor of the Meek , Privileged Position , Cryptolith Rite , Ranging Raptors , Ripjaw Raptor , and maybe Fecundity if you're desperate for card draw.. which I doubt you are. Take those with a grain of salt, because I love your list. Those are just the major players in my list that I think you could benefit from too.

I would recommend cutting Assemble the Legion . In my experiance its brutally slow and I've never been excited to see it in my hand.

That's a very interesting perspective, but again not thematic. I don't see little mushroom critters running around with skull clamps.

Cryptolith Rite is really neat, I did just get a Muraganda Petroglyphs though, and that art is amazing, so I'm working on removing enchantments that give abilities to creatures.

Drumhunter is my featured card, I love the artwork, flavor text, type and it's ability.
