Gemstone Array Discussion

As a general rule of thumb, most mana sinks are expensive, the cheapest I know of is Gemstone Array, which can be acquired at under a dollar, but just ends up making more mana :P. After some research, Ant Queen could work as well for a cheap 30 cents, but requires some mana to get going in the first place. Hope I could help!

rodsters, you hit it on the money. Since the combo requires you to generate infinite black mana to cast Conspiracy before you can retrieve the infinite rainbow mana piece Gemstone Array, we can't use Arcane Adaptation.

That said, the reason we use Conspiracy over Arcane Adaptation is rooted in my arbitrary obsession with the word Hippogriff. If you replace Razor Hippogriff with Treasure Hunter, you will be able to recur Gemstone Array before casting the card that turns your graveyard into humans.

If you use swap Razor Hippogriff for Treasure Hunter and Conspiracy for Arcane Adaptation, you may replace Xenograft with any tutor or cantrip you wish.

First of all if your ramping into door to nothingness you either want duel lands or tri lands and Mana rocks such as the various border posts or signets. Secondly you want a secondary win condition, and my advice is (staying in colourless theme) Darksteel Reactor. Although slow, many people will try to work out ways to eliminate it because it appears to be a threat. Finally you need more blockers to help protect your plan. Keeping theme, Etched Champion and Myr Servitor fit nicely here.

That's pretty cool, I have a similar combo in mind for my Commander deck, but it requires several pieces to work. The Commander is Ghave, Guru of Spores, The combo in mind is to Have Cathars' Crusade in Play, use Ghave's ability to make a Saproling triggering Crusade (replacing the counter removed and creating more if you have other creatures or additional counter effects) then you sacrifice the Saproling to Ashnod's Altar giving you two colorless, allowing you to repeat the cycle. For Mana of Color, simply use a Winding Constrictor and Gemstone Array, same process just feed the 2 'Glass' Mana into the array make 2 charge counters, expend one to make a new Saproling, I wouldn't try to do this for very long as someone might Cast Krosan Grip, when they get tired of you holding up the game with your many triggers.

Gemstone Array could help you filter black to green when you're trying to go off.

Also, what is your opinion on Gemstone Array? The 4 CMC is rough, but I really like the idea of storing/filtering black and red mana and turning it into blue.

I haven't played 5 colors much, so maybe someone who has can offer better advice, but given how much more difficult a deck can be when it adds more colors, I feel like these would help more consistently than the dual/bounce lands, which also means more emphasis on green and colorless cards. However, that is strictly my opinion.

Lastly, here's a shenanigan:
