Darksteel Reactor Discussion

Phill2016 on Five Shades of Curses

2 days ago

I like the deck, but I have a few suggestions. If you need a wincon other than approach, you could try running Azor's Elocutors, Darksteel Reactor, and Helix Pinnacle. You should also try more tutors to help you find curses and wincons. Bitterheart Witch can help find curses for you. Something like Diabolic Revelation can help you find lots of stuff for the situation you're in. Just for lols, Enduring Ideal gets you a curse per turn. I like the deck, keep working at it!

First of all if your ramping into door to nothingness you either want duel lands or tri lands and Mana rocks such as the various border posts or signets. Secondly you want a secondary win condition, and my advice is (staying in colourless theme) Darksteel Reactor. Although slow, many people will try to work out ways to eliminate it because it appears to be a threat. Finally you need more blockers to help protect your plan. Keeping theme, Etched Champion and Myr Servitor fit nicely here.

entheogeneral on You Can't Kill Me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!

Thanks, all helpful suggestions. I agree with the Mistveil Plains if I were basing my deck completely on Enduring Ideal, but that's a great idea, sometimes I draw Form of the Dragon and I have to wait them out.The last strategy you proposed seems amazing ( I love when no one can attack me ), which is why I should get Ensnaring Bridge and then use Peace of Mind. What do you think about Darksteel Reactor in an Atraxa, Preator's Voice EDH deck?

If you just want to wait until they mill out, replace your Form of the Dragon with Peace of Mind and replace the New Benalia with Mistveil Plains. This way, if you draw a card you want, you discard it, put it on the bottom of your library, and then Ideal it up. Win by milling them out.

Or, combine Stony Silence with Mycosynth Lattice; nobody would be able to cast spells or activate abilities. If you had a Ghostly Prison, they can't attack you, either. Since nobody can do anything, win with anything that triggers on upkeep, like Darksteel Reactor.

Also, if you don't want to use Darksteel Reactor and Azor's Elocutors, Sphinx's Tutelage is also a good win-con for a Modern Turbofog deck. I'd also recommend running some number of wraths (Supreme Verdict, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment) as sort of super-fogs. Angelsong is also an option for another good fog. In any case, sweet deck!

Man, that's a cool idea! Just I don't understand Darksteel Reactor really. I mean, if the opponent keeps focussing Azor's Elocutors, you have time to charge it and get the opponent waste creatures/removal/damage, but it's way to slow in my opinion!

Also, you have too little option to proliferate (try something like Steady Progress that get you draw too, if you need others damage preventions). You also need protection from removals like Path to Exile or black removals, so Gods Willing or Apostle's Blessing can be nice i think...

To replace your artifact, i would try Contagion Clasp! It's cheap on mana and you can keep it in play to proliferate when you have no other options!

I jsut tried and I really like this deck, its quirky. So except for lands which I am not a master on, and you land base is okay if just a little slow. Here is what I'd add:

Ancestral Vision - Why not?

Eternal Witness - to save your Haze if removed

Chronomantic Escape - Thematic, and with a copy of haze can be cast lots ;)

Crescendo of War - I found I had a lot of creatures out, could be risky though if you struggle to maintain the board.

Curse of the Cabal - can be scary quickly

Darksteel Reactor - alt win con

Deadbridge Chant - maybe? I just like this card tbh

Rise of the Dark Realms - another win con

Delay - I hear counters are good?

From Beyond

Epochrasite - early game

Sidisi, Undead Vizier instead of demonic tutor

Training Grounds + Illusionist's Bracers for tasigurs ability

Honden of Life's Web cos shrines

And any eldrazi titan, Or mana drain cos I found I was floating lots late game. And why not have something beastie to scare them away?

DrkNinja on Defender EDH, Jank Wincons, & ...

1 month ago

Working on this really dumb deck idea, that isn't supposed to be hyper competitive. It's based off of this other deck I built called Eldrazi Mana Helix but with some extra jank thrown in. Basically play defenders and win with jank combos like Door to Nothingness, mana helix, Coalition Victory , Darksteel Reactor, etc.

Anyone got any ideas on some cards that would be good in this deck?

FYI the deck isn't close to done, it's in Alpha stages, so be gentle!
