Dreamstone Hedron Discussion

hoardofnotions on Glissa's artifacts (50$ budget deck)

Hey! You might want to cut Fellwar Stone and Night's Whisper due to money reasons. Maybe add Ancient Craving and either Prismatic Lens or Dreamstone Hedron to replace them?

A55Destroyer69 on The Fat Red Line - Purphoros EDH

3 weeks ago

one better on Fellwar Stone would be Mind Stone. The difference between them is that fellwar will quite possibly be tapping for, essentially, colourless mana and that's it. Mind Stone, on the other hand, will tap for colourless mana AND can draw you a card if you start to flood. This cannot be done with Fellwar Stone, and since you have 36 lands that add R in some way, you're probably never going to need it to tap for ...

Also, there's a bunch of stuff in the deck that either isn't needed or there's far better substitutes -

Some cards you may want to put in the deck instead would be:

or, for a less budget-friendly approach:

By the way, Insurrection and similar effects steal your opponents' creatures, and then, unless the opponent has an Avacyn. This basically means that you get to steal all of your opponents' creatures, and then destroy them ALL (from targetting yourself with Mogg Infestation) and then that's almost always a "I win the game" synergy.

Zealous Conscripts is an infinite combo piece with kiki, since his ability is unconditional, meaning your stuff, your opponents' stuff. you basically get infinite mana if you have an Ashnod's Altar out, and you also deal infinite damage with Purphoros out.

kiki-jiki is just generally great in Purphoros EDH, since you can copy your Emrakul's Hatcher, SG Commander or Solemn Simulacrum (also thins deck and draws cards) each turn.

Vandalblast is generally good removal in red decks, as it's a one-sided artifact wrath, and if not it's just a Shatter, which is still not bad. Fiery Confluence is kind of the better-but-worse version of this, as it's more versatile, treated as a pyroclasm effect, or as additional pings from purphoros, or as artifact removal, just...less.

Solemn Simulacrum is generally decent - gets a land out of your deck, draws a card when it dies. Not much bad.

Panharmonicon is AMAZING!!! basically, you play an emrakul's hatcher and you get 2 triggers, giving you +1 mana potetial, and then you got 7 creatures into play, so that's 7 triggers from purphoros... but he's also ETB, so you get 14 triggers

-> that's 28 damage from 5 mana

Goblin Warrens isn't really that amazing, but you basically get +1 goblins, and 3 triggers for , which can just slowly eat at your opponents' life totals.

Empty the Warrens is also kind of similar, as you'll only ever really be playing it for 6-8 goblins, but that's still a solid 12 damage for 4 mana (value).

Kher Keep is quite similar, as I find with my deck that there are often better options at hand (literally. hehe...), but it is still, I guess, an emergency situation, last stand sort of thing, where you have just such dead draws, and so you just get to ping for each turn.

If you feel like your deck still doesn't get to a comfortable position with its mana, you can consider the following:

These cards will surely help you out. Although Gauntlet of Power will also potentially benefit your opponents, should you really care if they're just going to die in a few turns? Probably not. For just less than Caged Sun. Essentially, based of what I just stated, Gauntlet of Power is better (and Gauntlet of Might is best - less again XD).

in addition to the Gauntlet effects, you could add in this little series of mana rocks. Mind Stone can replace Fellwar Stone, for reasons stated previously, but then on top of that, there is Hedron Archive, which can draw you 2 cards, and Dreamstone Hedron draws 3. I don't really think that the two expensive ones really conform to the deck as well, but they're still considerations, I guess.

So, most of these cards aren't really that exciting. Avatar of Fury is pretty solid, but doesn't really interact with Purphoros much, apart from being a creature...

Guttersnipe definitely doen't fit in. You're running 23 spells, and I'd say that you'd need to run closer to 40 spells to consider him.

Young Pyromancer is just in the list because of my own personal thoughts on him, and I don't really think he's that fantastic in a "creature etb" deck like purphoros. He does make tokens, so all your spells essentially have +2 damage to opponents, but again, there are only 23 spells in the deck. If it was something more like Zada, Hedron Grinder, where he relies on going wide with creatures, that's a little different.

Devastating Summons is also kind of dodgy in this deck. You sacrifice some lands for 2 creatures. I'd much rather sacrifice X lands for X creatures.

Now, don't get me wrong. This deck is a burn deck, but normal burn spells, such as Sizzle are not very good. This is commander, where each player gets 40 life. Burning with 3 damage from such effects will take ages, and there's only so many unique ones. You're best off replacing it with something that will further your gamestate, such as kiki-jiki, Panharmonicon or Impact Tremors.

Mass Mutiny is kind of fine. The problem with it is that it's only one creature, when you could take every creature, without targetting. This means that your opponent can't protect their creatures from getting stolen without using countermagic. Also, stated above, Insurrection + Mogg Infestation is an almost guaranteed game-winning play, which can't really be done with just 3 more creatures.

Scour from Existence is unconditional removal that gets past Avacyn, but is really quite expensive - 7 mana to exile a creature. If it really requires this to get rid of it, you've messed something up...

Conjurer's Closet is kind of alright, but it's really not that fantastic. You would be best taking it out for a tutor, such as Goblin Matron, Imperial Recruiter or Gamble. These cards will help you find more stuff, like kiki-jiki, SG Commander or others that will be just as, if not more, effective than whoever is already in play.

Endless Atlas is fine, if you want to pay so much mana just to draw a couple of cards. I use Mind's Eye, which may be more expensive to cast, but it's cheaper to draw, and also can draw more than just 1 card each turn.

Madblind Mountain is interesting, but not necessary. It does let you shuffle your library (for whatever reason), but apart from that, it's just a slowland. You can tutor it up with a panorama, but what does it actually contribute to?

FiveEightFiveBC on The Ur-Dragon

Curse of Opulence, Curse of Verbosity, Dreamstone Hedron, and Mirror of the Forebears are where I would start to look for better options. The curses are too conditional on your opponents' choices for them to be reliable. Dreamstone Hedron gives you colorless mana, and you really want to increase your chances of casting each of your spells, so producing colored mana is really important, and especially having flexible colored sources. Mirror of the Forebears can turn into your best dragon, but you have many legendary dragons which will not work with it, and I think you'd rather slot in more ramp or card draw to increase your consistency.

I would consider the following cards:

Manalith, Chromatic Lantern, Mystic Remora, Traverse the Outlands

Also, there are many guides that have been created on YouTube where others give their opinions on how to upgrade the C17 Draconic Domination deck. Some recommend expensive cards, so you might be interested in looking up "budget" upgrades for the preconstructed deck if you have a more restricted wallet.

Dreamstone Hedron is a bit expensive for the amount of ramp it gives you. Same with Hedron Archive. I would recomend replacing them with Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus.

I would recommend including Shimmer Myr as you would essentially be able to play about half your deck at instant speed.

Take a look at the Mycosynth Lattice + Vandalblast combo as its a complete board wipe for your oponents and even with out vandal blast Mycosynth Lattice has good synergy with your deck.

A few thoughts:

Urza's Ruinous Blast seems like a good fit for the deck since many of your non-land permanents are legendary. You can't cast it without a legendary creature or planeswalker, which can be a pain, but that shouldn't be too much of a hurdle for this deck.

You may want Austere Command over Cleansing Nova: it costs an extra mana, but you get a lot more flexibility.

Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, or Fumigate might be worth thinking about instead of Hallowed Burial. You might prefer creatures go to the graveyard so Yomiji can send the legendary ones back to your hand. (If you never find yourself wanting to wipe the board while you have your commander and another legendary creature, ignore this suggestion.)

Immolating Glare is the same effect as Rebuke at one mana cheaper.

Several of your Legendary creatures (including your commander) are quite expensive, so you might want Land Tax to ensure you have lands to play every turn. Sword of the Animist or artifact ramp like Marble Diamond, Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, or Dreamstone Hedron could also help here.

I'm not sure whether you want mass land disruption like Armageddon, Cataclysm, and Winter Orb. They can be effective at converting temporary advantage into a win, but the deck looks like it will play best when you have a lot of mana to cast your spells, and recast your legends if they die with your commander on the field. If you do, focus on effects that destroy or force the sacrifice of lands (Armageddon, Cataclysm, Magus of the Balance, Fall of the Thran, Ravages of War (though that last one is way too expensive because there weren't many printed)) instead of Winter Orb, and use Crucible of Worlds or legendary lands you can get back with your commander to break the symmetry. I'd recommend looking at Flagstones of Trokair, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai, Eiganjo Castle, Geier Reach Sanitarium, and maybe Hall of the Bandit Lord or Legion's Landing  Flip. You might also want Dust Bowl in this case. I'm not sure you have enough density of legendary spells for Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper to be good, but it might be worth it.

I don't think Darksteel Forge is that useful here: you have useful artifacts, but not that many and you aren't super reliant on them.

There don't seem to very many activated abilities for Rings of Brighthearth to copy. You may not need that card here.

Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, or Elspeth, Sun's Champion all seem better in this deck than any of your planeswalkers except Karn.

Hi, Xinofos! Your average converted mana cost could be lower. What are your thoughts on adding more mana rocks, like Izzet Signet, Prismatic Lens, and Thought Vessel? You could possibly remove Dreamstone Hedron and Hedron Archive. I see an affinity subtheme in the deck, so including more low mana cost artifacts, such as Aether Spellbomb and Skullclamp may help more than some of the nonartifact cards you're currently running (e.g. Thoughtcast). Your deck has several "enters the battlefield" abilities, so Panharmonicon is something to consider. What function do you intend for Unwinding Clock? Outside of giving your artifact creatures pseudo-vigilance, I'm not clear on its benefit for the mana cost.

Very true. I've been meaning to add in Liquimetal Coating, thanks :)

Also, if I have Paradox Engine + Thran Dynamo/Sol Ring/Gilded Lotus or other mana rocks + Endbringer, I can just keep drawing and casting until I get out Akroma's Memorial.

Thanks for pointing out those combos! I don't usually look for them, so it's interesting/fun when others point them out.

I might try another rock, or replace Dreamstone Hedron with a rock with a smaller CMC, such as Worn Powerstone. Usually, I'm OK with mana, but there have been some times where mana does become an issue.
