Glimmerpost Discussion

DemonDragonJ on Why Do Players Praise the ...

1 month ago

Many players praise the Urza lands (Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant, and Urza's Tower), but those same player seem to forget that the loci (Cloudpost and Glimmerpost) can generate a greater amount of mana in sufficient quantities.

With one copy of each Urza land, a player can generate 7 mana, or 28 mana with four copies of each land. With four copies of Cloudpost, a player can generate 16 mana, and, with four copies of Glimmerpost, they can generate 36 mana, which takes only eight lands, rather than twelve.

Therefore, why is it that most players hold the Urza lands in high regard but do not do the same for the loci? What does everyone else say about this?

Rorolith You're going to be hard pressed to find a 'equal' replacement for Sol Ring. Grim Monolith , Mox Diamond , Lotus Petal are probably the closest you're going to get. Also I would look in to faster land. Ancient Tomb hurts you, but can be good fast mana. Cloudpost is usually an auto include '4 of' in colorless decks ran alongside Glimmerpost because they are both Locus. Urza's Mine , Urza's Power Plant , Urza's Tower are also lands you should think about including.

Love me some slow-burn Oloro! I have a similar build except mine tries to climax with a janky combo involving drakes. You might like these: Thran Turbine , Kabira Crossroads , Inventors' Fair , Jwar Isle Refuge , Sejiri Refuge , Tranquil Cove , Glimmerpost , Radiant Fountain , Seraph Sanctuary (super good with Angelic Accord!), Ivory Tower , Paradox Haze , Curse of Fool's Wisdom (curse yourself with this; its super cool, I swear!), Zur's Weirding , Soul's Attendant , Bontu's Monument

Darksteel Myr , Guardians of Meletis , and Workshop Assistant Are all cards that seem like they don’t really do good things for your dragons, they are good blockers at best, but they are going to be really low impact on the board and don’t really fit the theme. Some options for replacements are blockers that are less hardy but ramp you into your dragons faster like— Palladium Myr and Iron Myr . And if you’re looking for quicker ways to interact with the board I’d use something like Dragon Hatchling before I’d use the artifact dudes.

Alchemist's Vial and Explorer's Scope Seem not that great, mana rocks or permanents that aren’t lands, but give mana are super good for the high casting cost dragon archetype, but I’d go for some of the other ones like Fire Diamond , Hedron Archive , Darksteel Ingot , Dreamstone Hedron , Burnished Hart

Angel's Tomb Seems pretty mediocre, it makes a single angle, some of the time. Yeah it gets around board wipes like Wrath of God but there are cooler ways to get around that like Dragon Egg or cards that actually benefit from being blown up like Anger

Battle Hymn is only particularly good, when you have several creatures out. When you are running so many big creatures it is going to be tough to have a lot out. So I’d hesitate to use it here.

Tomb of the Spirit Dragon Is also not great, as you are only running a handful of colorless creatures, I’d probably use something like Temple of the False God over it.

Glimmerpost is only really useful in conjunction with Cloudpost , and even then I’d likely skip them in a format where you can only use one of each, they get powerful when you can run four copies of each in a deck.

Comet Storm Earthquake Pyrohemia and Hour of Devastation are all great for clearing out boards with a lot of stuff on it and since you’ll likely be trying to wipe out the game with a lot less creatures a lot of the time they’ll hurt your opponents way more than they hurt you. Relentless Assault is also just super good and cheap. You’ll also likely not have to deal with as many blockers as dragons fly, but a neat card to make your dragons more evasive and harder to chump block is Archetype of Aggression and also Goblin War Drums

Two cards that are likely out of budget, but are crazy good for the deck are Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and Zirilan of the Claw . And Since you are in Mono Red I would 100% switch to Lathliss, Dragon Queen

putting this here so you can find it a bit easier--my recommendations are as follows.

take out: Spawnsire of Ulamog , Hydroid Krasis , Ulvenwald Hydra , Cloudpost , Glimmerpost , and the three uzra lands.

put in: Blue Sun's Zenith , Chord of Calling , Ancient Tomb , Inventors' Fair , Buried Ruin , Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , and Cultivate .

you may also consider swapping Simic Growth Chamber for Shrine of the Forsaken Gods

Boza on Budget Formatless Decks

While those are basically pauper decks that have some more expensive cards taken out of them, I think they will work.

The most powerful card that is banned in several formats, yet cheap are Cloudpost and Glimmerpost . Take a look at pauper decks when those cards were not banned and try to update them within the budget.

Curiously enough, storm should be pretty easy to assemble in this format - sure, you do not get to play Manamorphose , but most anything else is fair game. Sacland or depletion land storm ( Dwarven Ruins and friends or Sandstone Needle and friends) and Temporal Fissure storm should be both easy to make and obnoxious.

If this is a casual deck you should look at playing the locus lands: Cloudpost and Glimmerpost. Expedition Map is also good for finding your missing Urza lands.
