Darksteel Citadel Discussion

Fafnoir on Noyan Dar, Tundra's Personal Trainer

Have you considered including Cascading Cataracts and Darksteel Citadel as ways of making indestructible creatures with your commander? I like the ideas here, it seems like the deck can get out of control quick.

Also, Darksteel Citadel is indestructible.......

And if someone decides that they want to exile my land instead of anything else, I'm probably going to be fine with that.

ToxicHawk, it does depend on what you want to do. I will say, though, that Unwinding Clock is bad because you lack a way to flash in your creatures, and adding a sufficient infrastructure to do that would dilute the deck and make it less consistent. Paradox Engine has the same issue of getting you mana you can’t necessarily use since it needs card draw to work well.

If you have any Mystical Tutor, they go great with Tinker. As for the rest of the cards, I’d suggest Thoughtcast for draw and Seat of the Synod since it’s an artifact. Even Darksteel Citadel would be good as a playset. Another decent card to run is Ensoul Artifact

multimedia on Saheeli Pre-Con Upgrade

Hey, Exquisite Invention is actually a well made Commander precon by Wizards, but what the precon really lacks are repeatable draw sources. You've done well with upgrading the precon by cutting out most of the lackluster cards.

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain can be repeatable draw when you cast any artifact or even Saheeli. Mystic Forge can give you an advantage by being able to cast artifacts from the top of your library. The Magic Mirror's mana cost can be reduced with Saheeli's +1 and it gives you repeatable draw each turn and that draw increases each turn you control it. Bident of Thassa is quite good as a repeatable draw source with attacking tokens especially flying Thopters and it's an artifact.

Whir of Invention is an instant artifact tutor that puts the artifact onto the battlefield and improvise helps to cast it with artifacts you control. Reshape is sac an artifact to tutor for and put an artifact onto the battlefield with CMC equal to what you paid for X. Treasure Mage can be helpful because it can tutor for any 6 CMC or higher artifact and put it into your hand for Saheeli's +1.

Everflowing Chalice and Talisman of Creativity are two more good budget two drop mana rocks and can use Saheeli's +1 to help to cast a huge Chalice that can be a repeatable colorless mana source. Inspiring Statuary gives all your nonartifact spells improvise meaning that artifacts you control can be used to pay for the mana costs of nonartifact spells.

The artifact lands: Seat of the Synod, Great Furnace, Darksteel Citadel count towards reducing artifact costs with Saheeli's +1. Trinket Mage can also tutor for one of these artifact lands if you need a land. Other budget land upgrades to consider: Shivan Reef, Spire of Industry, Glimmervoid, Sulfur Falls, Ash Barrens, Grixis Panorama, Temple of Epiphany.

I offer more help to make cuts. Good luck with your deck.

You could look at using Goblin Welder which not only lets you get Crucible of Worlds from the graveyard but you can also use it with Darksteel Citadel and Great Furnace to alternate between the two each turn.

There's also Epicenter with crucible.

Monomanamaniac on Bosh throws a fit

So you might think if adding even more mana rocks like Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Hedron Archive, Worn Powerstone, Blinkmoth Urn, Everflowing Chalice, Gilded Lotus, Palladium Myr, or Iron Myr. You should be ramping as much as possible, you could even consider Extraplanar Lens if budget is no concern. You could consider cards like Myr Retriever, Goblin Welder, Buried Ruin, Goblin Engineer, Junk Diver, purphorous, bronze-blooded or Daretti, Scrap Savant to bring artifacts back from the graveyard. You could consider Mystic Forge, Planar Bridge, or Kuldotha Forgemaster for getting artifacts out of your deck and onto the battlefield. Darksteel Forge, Soul of New Phyrexia, or Eldrazi Monument so you're killing your artifacts only when you want to. Unwinding Clock it's good if you combine it with flash from Shimmer Myr or Vedalken Orrery. Ugin, the Ineffable or Foundry Inspector to reduce the casting cost of your artifacts without affecting the cmc. You could go full ham on some big artifact creatures like Myr Battlesphere, Meteor Golem, Duplicant, Ancient Stone Idol, Mycosynth Golem, Darksteel Colossus, Blightsteel Colossus, Platinum Angel, or Platinum Emperion just to name a few. Other ideas might be Hellkite Tyrant to steal your opponents artifacts Mycosynth Lattice to turn your non-artifacts into artifacts, Illusionist's Bracers or Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient to copy bosh's abilities, Swiftfoot Boots and/or Lightning Greaves to protect your big guy, Voltaic Key or Manifold Key to untap your rocks, or Mind's Eye or incidental card draw. Some lands to think about are Myriad Landscape, Darksteel Citadel, and Phyrexia's Core but not much else.

As per suggestions to take out : Catalyst Elemental, Destructive Digger, Forge Armor, Walking Atlas, Nahiri's Wrath, Wily Goblin (use Dockside Extortionist), Azor's Gateway  Flip, Furious Rise, Generator Servant, Pirate's Pillage, Scarecrone, Filigree Familiar just to name a few.

I would like to start by saying I'm not trying to say your deck is bad, just trying to give you a lot of ideas to go off of and pointing out things that don't really go with the theme of the deck, which is ramp super hard, drop a bunch of big threats, drop bosh and kill opponents. Secondly, I am not a competitive deck builder by any means, I just use the data I have and suggest the things I like. I actually like seeing gosh in the command zone.

I would run Dispatch over Path to Exile. Also, unless you have specific synergies with Darksteel Citadel, I would take it out for other lands, just because it being an artifact makes it a little more vulnerable. Although I guess adding Dispatch would make it more synergistic ... your decision.

Smorgaz on Avacyn's Angels of the Apocalypse

1 month ago

Brutal_B Cascading Cataracts is basically a second Darksteel Citadel in case the Armageddon happens while Avacyn, Angel of Hope isn't on board. Defy Death does nothing if there is no angel in my graveyard and if I have an other angel in my deck instead I would rather draw that.Since There's no way to tutor for creatures in mono-white, I would rarely draw Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade together and on their own they don't really do that much. Light of the Legion doesn't really contribute to the deck either. She is more suited to a deck that goes wide which this clearly isn't. Seraph of the Suns has way to high cmc for basically being a 4/4 who does nothing most of the time. I just don't have a slot available for a good blocker, when I have various ways of giving any creature indestructible. I had Reya Dawnbringer in there for a while, but once I hit 8 Mana, the only thing the deck wants to do is getting Avacyn out safely. At that point I don't have time to cast Reya anymore. Brought Back might actually be good, but I don't quite see which card to cut for it.
