Fractured Powerstone Discussion
1 week ago
To elaborate a little bit since Monster here beat me to it - Trinket Mage seems like it would make sense on paper, but in practice it doesn't do enough - it's essentially a worse Fabricate, since it has fewer legal targets, and Fabricate is barely playable for us. The best things we could reasonable pull off Trinket Mage would be fast mana or Sensei's Divining Top (there are a few haterocks and eggs it could grab, but those aren't primary tutor targets). Ideally we want to be tutoring for cost reducers like Etherium Sculptor or the big mana engines like Krark-Clan Ironworks. While it's a good card, Trinket Mage just isn't quite versatile enough to grab what we need him to.
Chief Engineer has a similar problem, especially when you look at the extremely low creature density in the deck. In any given game you may see one, maybe two creatures that aren't Jhoira herself. Because we don't have the creature density to really abuse the convoke effect, it's just not worth the slot. Now if it said "Artifact spells you cast have Improvise" instead, then we'd be getting somewhere.
I too did not know that Fractured Powerstone existed.

betefico, as far as Trinket Mage goes, for our 3 CMC slots we want those to be mana reducers. Also our 1 or less CMC don't really have combos. I know we can get Mana Crypt and Mana Vault with Mage, but that is paying a lot of mana for those effects. We don't play enough creatures to make Chief Engineer worth it.
Totally didn't know that Fractured Powerstone existed. We'll look into it.

Curious: why did you choose to include Fractured Powerstone?

Ahahahaha NyeShnefDerp! I don't think I've paid attention to that flavor text before. That's pretty hilar.
vargaszm I don't think I need Fellwar Stone. I do like a -cost rock, but in mono-black it's pretty ok if my rocks only give colourless like Fractured Powerstone and Mind Stone. I guess Fellwar would be an upgrade to the weirdo-powerstone and would occasionally provide coloured mana. I'll see if I have a spare one in my collection.

Apologies for the delay, I had to write this twice.One time mana sources make a lot of sense since you do need 11 mana to play your commander and equip all in the same turn.Basalt Monolith, Grim Monolith, Lion's Eye Diamond, Mana Vault, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Seething Song, Lotus Bloom, Lotus Petal, Treasonous Ogre, Vessel of Volatility, Simian Spirit Guide
EquipmentHammer of Nazahn, Helm of the Host, Lightning Greaves all good but how do you feel about Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault backup strategy? Sword of the Animist is a good equipment for this strategy as well but depending on the table may not be fast enough.
Love the counter package, no Dualcaster Mage?Fork, Burnout, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Reverberate, Ricochet Trap, Glorious End, and of course Possibility Storm. Not a big fan of Veilstone Amulet in cedh but the makeup of your local meta will make or break this card. Active Volcano is probably too much.
Maybe too many colorless lands? I think you could cut one land overall but I understand you want to hit each land drop. Ancient Tomb, Buried Ruin, Cavern of Souls, City of Traitors, Command Beacon, Crystal Vein, Dwarven Ruins, Gemstone Caverns, 25xMountain, Sandstone Needle, Scorched Ruins, Sequestered Stash
Kuldotha Forgemaster is a good way to tutor the equipment into play.
Sphere of Resistance is a fantastic protection card but can make it easier for others to combo if you leave it out.

Hi, I like your deck!
Here are some suggestions:
The free spot could be filled with Goblin Rabblemaster
Rogue's Passage could do some work, too
Purphoros, God of the Forge as an alternative win condition

I know we spoke some about this earlier, but I want to reiterate:
- Naya Panorama and Bant Panorama are going to be better than Terminal Moraine and Warped Landscape
- Sun Titan and Spirit of the Labyrinth are going to be your most critical deviations from Cats! the musical
- Talisman of Unity >>>>> Selesnya Signet = Mind Stone > Prismatic Lens > Everflowing Chalice > Fractured Powerstone when it comes to two-drop rocks in this list
- Ghostly Prison and Elephant Grass are able to do so much work for you
- Mirri should probably be the commander over Arahbo
