Gemstone Array Discussion

Basalt Monolith , Sol Ring , Thran Dynamo , and Worn Powerstone are not modern legal.

The modern legal artifacts that can add multiple mana per tapping, (that would work in this deck and you don't already include), are Dreamstone Hedron , Gemstone Array , Gilded Lotus , Hedron Archive , Lotus Bloom , Palladium Myr , and Coalition Relic .

But I don't recommend you to just play ramping artifacts and try to curve into gigantic creatures after that. If you don't develop your battlefield at all while playing ramp cards, you're going to have a bad time against aggro, and you're going to outright lose if you ever face a Stony Silence .

That being said, you're playing Eldrazi, and Eldrazi is one of the best ramp decks out there.

there are too very similar Colorless Eldrazi ramp decks that I would consider to be top teir. One that has better starts, and has a more consistant game plan, and one that has an amazing end-game, and some big ass eldrazi.

I've included links if you're interrested:

Eldrazi Aggro

Big Eldrazi

I'm not saying you need to build these decks to play with Eldrazi, but taking inspiration from them would help a lot.

I'd advise you add Mirrodin's Core and Gemstone Array . Those two really like Atraxa. Gotta say, though, this is a pretty good deck!

I really like how Jodah enables sunburst so that's really cool. Maze's End is always a great card to see in a commander deck. I would suggest Cascading Cataracts . It's a great card for your deck and enables you to sunburst whenever so that's nice. I'd probably take out Gemstone Array because it's very slow.

Staff of Domination and Umbral Mantle can net you infinite colourless mana after a single wheel spell.

Gemstone Array can turn that colourless mana into coloured mana.

X spells like Comet Storm , Torment of Hailfire , Exsanguinate , Walking Ballista and Fireball are all great finishers in this kind of deck.

red stuff has been mentioned, but Doubling Cube is a good way to get lethal mana with rituals

lots of colorless mana combos like:

Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth

Voltaic Construct + Metalworker

Umbral Mantle + Metalworker

Ashnod's Altar/Krark-Clan Ironworks + Myr Battlesphere (or any other creature that spawns 2 or more tokens, like Krenko, Mob Boss) + Nim Deathmantle

Gemstone Array converts to red

also if you're running a lot of the same creature, Mana Echoes can generate absurd colorless that can also be converted to red

Chief of the Foundry seems kinda weak since you're not playing that many artifact creatures, and Terrarion only really serves as mediocre card draw since you don't need mana filters.

Quicksilver Amulet, Belbe's Portal, Deathrender, Clone Shell, Summoner's Egg, Planar Bridge could help in getting your eldrazi out earlier, albeit at the cost of any "whenever you cast this creature" triggers.

Mystifying Maze, Miren, the Moaning Well, and Thespian's Stage are pretty good colorless lands, as well as land destruction lands like Strip Mine or Field of Ruin would fit nicely.

Sword of the Animist and Solemn Simulacrum could help with ramp, and Mind Stone is a good colorless mana rock. Also if you find that you have a lot of mana sitting around before you get your big dudes out, Everflowing Chalice or Gemstone Array could be pretty good

Thanks a lot for this fast reply! Oh now I get what you wanted to Tell me that Breya is your Combo.

Okay if you don't have any copies left then Manalith is okay. But I really recommend Chromatic Lantern Darksteel Ingot Vessel of Endless Rest since they do the same as Manalith and something in addition. Indestructible/Land Fixing/Semi Recursion. If you can get your hands on one of them, put it in :)

Then what do you spend your Infinite Mana on if you don't have acces to Breya (because Imprisoned in the Moon or similar) They are played very much in my meta.

Gemstone Array if I noticed correctly combo 4 and 5 make colorless mana so this card would make it into colored to cast Breya and could make another wincon straight out the command zone with a sac outlet

I tried some games with this deck (not 1:1 same but very similar) and sometimes I just miss a color to get Breya out :D

Any tipps what hands to keep and what to Mulligan?

Deadeye and Peregrin I'm not sure if I take them out for an artifcat combo Whir of Invention another good one but triple blue is hard.

Tutor for pieces if you have parts already. But what to tutor if you don't have any pieces ? Isochron reversal or something Else?

Thanks a Lot for all the help!

My Atraxa deck found the following the best mana sources:

Pentad Prism

Gemstone Array

Crystalline Crawler


Druids' Repository

They all can be accessed at instant speed, multiple times a turn, especially if you have extra proliferation in the deck, and they all work incredibly well with cards like Winding Constrictor, Inexorable Tide, and Pir, Imaginative Rascal

Several times I've gotten 2 of these into play, and with something like the Tide in play, I've never had any mana problems whatsoever.
