Gilded Lotus Discussion

JKRice on Teferi Chain Veil

2 days ago

My commander deck right now is CVT Teferi, and it’s pretty darn close to tier 1, so I have some suggestions. Im assuming your taking suggestions since you have it tagged as needing help.

Force of will, ugin, static orb, cursed totem, BSZ, grim monolith, transmute/Power arti, rewind, mana vault/crypt, gilded lotus

1) What I would take out

A: Forbid is a good counterpell, but bad in this deck. You don’t want to empty your hand that much to get a non-free counterspell back to your hand. You definitely want a full hand.

B: Jace, Architect of Thought doesn’t do anything in your deck unless he ults, and he’s probably not going to in a competitive meta.

C: Everflowing Chalice is a decent ramp card, but it’s definitely not the best one, and the fact that it only turns on the CV combo of you play it T4 means it’s not super viable.

D: Paradox Engine. Amazing card, and I considered putting it in my deck, but CVT can win pretty easily without it, and engine only adds a small amount of synergy and combo to what is played in the deck to the point that I would rather play another stax piece.

E: Sisay's Ring/Worn Powerstone. There are better ramp cards.

F: Unwinding Clock doesn’t do a whole lot in the deck and doesn’t turn on the combo.

G: Mind Spring is better replaced with any instant speed draw x or any target player draw x

H: Shimmer Myr does almost nothing, unless you wanna be a fricking troll and play something like Torpor Orb in response to them casting a big ETB creature

I: The creature teferi. Although he’s great against other counter decks, since CVT plays free counters and usually uses them to protect the combo, and creature teferi’s first ability is useless in the deck, and there aren’t a lot of competitive counter decks other than CVT out there, he’s not super good and it would be better to just play Dispel.

2) what I would put in

I’m not sure what your budget is so this might seem very overpriced.

A: Force of Will and Mana Drain do serious work in the deck, with the first protecting the combo and the second possibly ramping out a T3-T4 win.

B: Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is played in a lot of competitive CVT decks, because he basically locks down creature decks like sisay (board wipe the turn he comes down and bolt sisay whenever they try to play him)

C: Static Orb/Cursed Totem are absolutely necessary stax pieces in the deck. The second one especially helps against your worst marchups, like yisan or sisay.

D: Blue Sun's Zenith is my weapon of choice for teferi, allowing you to kill multiple people in a turn instead of Stroke of Geniusing one person.

E: Grim Monolith/Mana Vault/Mana Crypt are all good colorless ramp that help accelerate the win more than ramp like thran dynamo.

F: Gilded Lotus is especially good as ramp because it gives you colored mana for the Isochron Scepter/Dramatic Reversal combo, allowing you to play teferi and dig.

G: Transmute Artifact allows you to go for the combo easily

H: Power Artifact goes infinite with basalt monolith or grim monolith.

I: Extraplanar Lens acts as a static high tide, ramping You whenever you play teferi.

J: Rewind is possibly a good counter choice as it allows you to leave only four mana up and be able to respond twice.

Voltaic Key is a must for Kurkesh. It lets you untap as many artifacts as you have red to spend and combos with Gilded Lotus and Kurkesh.

Jollyroger_gen on Daxos, Lost but Seeking

1 week ago

Gilded Lotus pairs well with Skybind. Can use it (plus one extra white or black mana) to create a Daxos spirit token on each turn (your's and opponent's).

Chromatic Lantern if your deck has more than 2 colors; Gilded Lotus works great even for 2 color decks!

Commander's Sphere - i have it more often than Sol Ring in my decks.

Daedalus19876 on Lets start a riot

This doesn't look bad! With that being said, I'd add more card draw that isn't reliant on having Rakdos, Lord of Riots on the field, such as Wheel of Fortune/Reforge the Soul/etc or Read the Bones. I'd also add a LOT more ramp, since the deck is essentially dead without its commander, particularly mana rocks such as Coalition Relic or Gilded Lotus. My first cuts would be Rakdos's Return, Palace Siege, and all three of your PWs: they don't do enough for their mana costs. Also, have you considered Lobber Crew as another way to curve out Rakdos?

Megalomania I completely missed the interaction between Gilded Lotus, Archaeomancer/ Salvager of Secrets and Ghostly Flicker. thanks for bringing that to my attention!

Moving away a bit from high cost ramp, mill, and limited effect draw/discard.
