Gelatinous Genesis Discussion
1 month ago
I know "" translates to when considering converted mana costs. So a spell like Banefire is actually a CMC = 1 card, even if you spend 12 mana on it.
I know I can just type in "X" in the text field, but the issue here is it pulls up literally E-V-E-R-Y card that has the letter "x" in it, such as every card with the word "exile" or "next" in it.
Short of asking for the "word" "X", but then specifically removing all X-containing words, such as "exile" or "next" (Which just takes way too much time to do), does anybody know of a way to look for these cards?
Or, conversely, is there a different website we can use - or an app for that matter?
I'm asking, because I want to build a new EDH deck centered around, of all Commanders, Rosheen Meanderer. I thought it'd be an interesting idea, with cards like Gelatinous Genesis, Hydra Broodmaster, Flameblast Dragon, and Steel Hellkite as my main cannons (Among others, of course) and rely on things like the aforementioned spells to get me there.

Bramble Sovereign + your extra mana from Vorinclex.
You have a bunch of big power creatures, I'd add a Garruk's Packleader for card draw.
Vorinclex + Patron of the Orochi can be really silly if you have any X-costing spells such as Endless One or Wurmcalling or Gelatinous Genesis or Wolfbriar Elemental or Flock of Rabid Sheep (I think that last one is actually legal).
I've always wanted to use Polyraptor but it seems too expensive to me.

The mana is a result of him attacking, not the result of an activated ability.
I apologize for this oversight. I've actually never played with Mana Reflection before. It's in none of my decks, so I was unfamiliar with it's rulings.
That's my bad.
Regardless, you can still easily end up with 16 mana on T4.
- 8 from 4 tapped lands
- 2 from 1 tapped Dork
- 6 from Ventmaw
That's still an X=13 Genesis Wave, an X=14 Rolling Thunder (Which will be game with the Ventmaw's damage), an X=15 Crater's Claws for 17 damage (Again, game), or a Hydra Broodmaster with Monstrosity of 4 (Which is still pretty good, all things considered).

That, combined with your defenders and Craterhoof Behemoth is a sure-fire way to break through the game.
To destroy the boardstate with Hoof, you can also do things like Hydra Broodmaster and immediately pay into his ability to get a ton of massive tokens, or even Gelatinous Genesis to outright make tokens out the ass.
I have a MG stompy deck that does exactly this and it explodes with tremendous force. You just need to be quick on the draw to ensure you can keep it going. Last thing you want is to cast your hand and be top-decking the rest of the game.
Harmonize is great for this in green, as is Garruk, Primal Hunter where you -3 him immediately and draw stupid amounts of cards. Just be sure if you're using Garruk to cast him first with minimal amounts of mana (Tapping basic forests, for example) and than tap for devotion to get his added in before you kill him off to draw. No sense letting it go to waste.

When going mono-colored, and especially mono-green, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is always a nice card to have. Cards like Gelatinous Genesis and Genesis Wave are a nice place to dump the mana you've saved up. Nice deck, hope my suggestions help.

The 196 mana steps are off and need revising. As it stands, it's not possible with the current list. The 196 mana steps include 4 Utopia Sprawls when only 1 is in the deck, and he instructs us to cast 5 Arbor Elf, among other missteps. It just doesn't work.
It looks like the deck is trying to do too much and needs some condensing. Gelatinous Genesis or Genesis Wave? Pick one. Arbor Elf with only 1 Utopia Sprawl? Max it out. Only 3 copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and no land-search? Do you want your mana generation to come from elves with Elvish Archdruid or Nykthos? Either maximize the elves (cut most of the fatties) or get more land-search (Primeval Titan) & untap effects like Garruk Wildspeaker.

Okay I'm here! Sorry it took so long; my comment deleted somehow!
Here's a good list of resources I use if you're new to the format:
EDHREC.com look up your commander and get hundreds of the most popular cards for him!
MTG ASSIST.com look up cards and find similar ones!
The Command Zone #151 Deck template maybe watch this first; very helpful!
So You need a bunch of cuts, I'd start with looking at:
- Allosaurus Rider
- Caller of the Pack
- Garruk's Horde
- Hornet Queen
- Inkwell Leviathan
- Nezahal, Primal Tide
- Pelakka Wurm
- Ranging Raptors
- Ripjaw Raptor
- Scavenging Ooze
- Scute Mob
- Simic Sky Swallower
- Stormtide Leviathan
- Ulvenwald Hydra
- Hunt the Weak
- Primal Surge
- Hadana's Climb
- Sandwurm Convergence
- Venser's Journal
- Kiora, Master of the Depths
- Early Harvest
- Swell of Growth
Not saying throw them all at, but consider cutting and replacing :)
Now, I think Kruphix boils down to two things: Making mana, and using mana. With that in mind, here are some suggestions. Consider what your budget allows.
Making Mana: Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, Doubling Cube, Plasm Capture, Seedborn Muse, Kiora's Follower, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Deadeye Navigator(some infinite combos with this guy, ask if interested), Weaver of Currents, Everflowing Chalice, Frontier Siege etc.
Using mana: Stroke of Genius, Pull from Tomorrow, Curse of the Swine, Altered Ego, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Thrasios, Triton Hero, some Eldrazi beasties if you have the money, Genesis Wave, Braingeyser, Enter the Infinite, Gelatinous Genesis, Expropriate, Planar Bridge, Nissa, Steward of Elements, and finally, Helix Pinnacle as a fun win-condition.
That's my $0.02! Hope some if this helps!
