Gemstone Array Discussion

Daedalus19876 I've been replacing conditional draw with cards like Commune with Lava because more often than not people do not want me drawing cards. I have been eyeing Wheel of Fortune to take the spot of Risk Factor. I kinda like Gemstone Array for scenarios where i'm out of gas and i just need to store mana for upcoming turns, I did not know that card existed lol. Winds of Change is an excellent disruption card! Thanks for the ideas!

Seems like a pretty good Neheb deck! I am surprised not to see Wheel of Fortune in here, though -- just not affordable? I'm a great fan of Winds of Change in mono-red: it's great for screwing up decks that carefully search their library for specific cards, or manipulate their topdecks. Have you considered Gemstone Array to let you save mana over turn boundaries? Finally, I am a huge fan of Abrade and Lightning Bolt in EDH: Bolt hits a LOT of relevant commanders, and can be a Dark Ritual in this deck.

Hey there! Just read your Split Second article, very cool! Cool to see someone with similar thoughts of initially building Elenda as a challenge, but I love the change as it opens up more possibilities too!

I've been looking at ways for new win conditions with the death trigger changes, and aside from the ones you've listed, Elenda, the Dusk Rose can go infinite with Phyrexian Altar + Blade of the Bloodchief, provided she has sufficient counters to start with to offset her commander tax. Similarly the combination of Cordial Vampire + Anointed Procession = Teysa Karlov, which can go infinite with Phyrexian Altar.

Those combos will also work with Ashnod's Altar, but you need to include either Gemstone Array or Mycosynth Lattice, which I don't think is worth the card slot.

PS. Your Haakon, Stromgald Scourge tech is very creative. My deck is vampire rather than knight themed, but now I HAVE to include it when I brew a Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale deck hahaha

1) I would recommend changing out Spectral Sailor for Prophet of Distortion.

2) With Basalt Monolith - what are your outlets for infinite colorless? I noticed right off the bat that you aren't running Staff of Domination or something like Prismite / Gemstone Array- might be worth considering. Walking Ballista & Thrasios, Triton Hero are in my setup as well, but as soon as Basalt Monolith hits the table with Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy you're going to need to make use of the colorless. I suppose it would depend on your Meta and how much interaction takes place, but in my playgroup it's a very short lived combo without an outlet immediately available.

3) Also, have you considered the Vigean Graftmage + Incubation Druid combo? At the very least you could cut a land and add Vigean pretty easy.

Also heads up, your mana combos involving Grinning Ignus don't make infinite, they just allow you to filter red into colorless. If you had a Prismite or something similar out, then you could do it infinitely (except your Molten Echoes example would require even more setup to work, e.g. Prismite + Ashnod's Altar).

There's always Mana Echoes for easy big mana. Could pour it into a Goblin Offensive, Gemstone Array, Spawning Bed, etc

Oh also Lapse of Certainty and Glorious End are fun with sunforger. Glorious End is particularly interesting because you can respond to its end-step trigger by, well, recasting Glorious End lol.

When it's down to 1v1 you can lock your opp out completely by looping Glorious End. Toss in a Rings of Brighthearth and Magnetic Theft, and with enough mana (12) + a loop engine (Unwinding Clock or To Arms! could help here) you're locking out all opponents.

Seething Song is another fun Sunforger target. Makes infinite mana possible in the right setup. It requires something like Gemstone Array, Prismite, or Signpost Scarecrow if you want though.

If you realllllly wanted to focus on sunforger, you could rework the deck to have Zirda, the Dawnwaker as a companion. Makes Sunforger cheaper to equip.

Sorry for the rant. I really like Sunforger

Polyflower: True, though Gemstone Array lets you save mana across turn boundaries too :)
