Eon Hub Discussion
3 months ago
I think it's a solid non-legendary rare, in any case, as it has aggressive stats, and seems like a Johnny card/Spike maybe given the cards I'll put below (Only competitive with a standard reprint of the concept of the cards, obviously). It has a solid hate effect, and while Flying & Reach is silly, it does have marginal usefulness, in the face of Archetype of Imagination and Sky Tether.
I run Eon Hub in my Lavinia, Azorius Renegate, to work around Stasis and other similar effects, as it doesn't run smokestacks, and will have Paradox Haze in the Jhoira of the Ghitu deckI'm in the concept stages of

Thank you for the Eon Hub tip! I was unaware of this card and will be adding it to the list asap. Fits the artifact subtheme and lands matter main theme!

Aminatou, the Fateshifter might be a solid add to blink stuff with.
As for skipping Upkeeps, Eon Hub is kinda funny.

Phyrexian Soulgorger is on the chopping block. I took out Eon Hub and without it, it will probably actually take a way (snow permanents) more than it gives (gimmicky biggin' that also happens to be snow).

Yeah, I know. I read that on your profile. Just sayin'... Being flexible and embracing different formats might help you break into different communities on the site. hinthint
That aside, one nice thing about Commander these days is that there are so many cards that are virtual copies of each other or have very similar effects. That makes it more straightforward to build an EDH deck, because instead of thinking about 64 nonland slots, you're instead thinking about 4-7 synergizing categories of cards in the deck.
Take your Nicol Bolas for example. Stuff that allows him to ping opponents for damage, like Chandra's Ignition , are great for forcing multiple opponents to discard their hands right off. You can also make his upkeep cost cheaper or nullify it with stuff like Eon Hub (this card screws other people hard, too). Since he's so high CMC, you would probably want a good deal of ramp, removal, and protection for him, which would make up a few more categories. Permanents that do double or triple duty in these categories are going to put in the most mileage for you.
You don't have to embrace Commander if it's not your style, but there's certainly other ways to think of the singleton rule.

I also like Icy Manipulator both for flavor and for utility. Dark Depths might be out of your price range, but it is such a cool flavor card. also on that list is Glacial Chasm . Some more enter the battlefield creatures might be really helpful things like Eternal Witness and Hornet Queen are busted good with roon. Eon Hub does things in this deck. I have no idea if it is a good card or not for the deck, but it certainly does things.
Some cool things to think about (specifically cool for you, and very uncool for your opponents). If you can make your opponents lands snow covered all of a sudden Balduvian Conjurer and Balduvian Frostwaker make them removable with creature removal like Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile can now remove lands. Which I guess for those specific removal cards seems pretty bad, but uh Sunscour after making all of your opponent's lands into 2/2's with the frostwaker seems pretty hilarious to me.
Altogether your list is super fun and flavorful, could it have more focus on making a specific win condition go? like Worldly Tutor to get out the Rimefeather Owl consistently? Sure, but this schema is going to be tough to break, which is why it is fun. I think you could do more board clears and more making your opponent's lands into creatures, but I think that will make your play group dislike you pretty quickly. Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper might be fun if you want to go all in on making your lands into creatures and winning that way. And with that dude, you could go with Devastation Tide and Rude Awakening . There are a bunch of things your list could be sharpened into. Hope this helps.
