Golos, Tireless Pilgrim Discussion

Boza on Golos ability with Aetherflux Reservoir

34 minutes ago

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , Aetherflux Reservoir

While the clarity of the question could be better, I believe you are asking if Golos, Tireless Pilgrim 's activated ability and subsequently cast cards trigger the ability of Aetherflux Reservoir .

If so, then the answer is yes.

Play and cast are the exact same thing regarding spells, the only difference between the two is that if a card lets you "play" cards, you can also play lands as well as spells, while "cast" allows you to only play non-land cards.

Any non-land card exiled with Golos' ability that you cast will trigger Aetherflux Reservoir .

Mj3913 yes I did and I think Jodah, Archmage Eternal and Golos, Tireless Pilgrim are cute and also very "safe" to play as commanders. One reduce the cost of card to WUBRG which I saw maybe 4 or 5 snow cards that aren't already 5 or less CmC so I don't really see the point and the other guy is bringing lands and nothing else until I can get to the mana to use his other ability. I'm not saying Golos isn't good but in my play group it's a walking target.

That's why I was wondering what people we're playing as generals and why.

So it's not a "combo", so much as a "synergy".

The difference (Purely based in my own braincase) is that a synergy means several cards interact with one-another, allowing tighter play. Each card complements each other card, and together they complement the deck as a whole. For example, True Conviction pairs up lovely with Karlov of the Ghost Council , as does Archangel of Thune .

Combos are when you use one card to interact with another card to gain benefit, then use that benefit to interact with another card.

In my opinion, a synergy is like soup; The blended ingredients all work in harmony together to make a stronger experience. Meanwhile a combo is like a Rube Goldberg Machine; One event leads into another and this causes a chain reaction, which sometimes is repeatable.

With that out of the way, Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is used as the Commander to cheat Bolas's Citadel into play, but honestly you don't need him whatsoever. Cut Golos from the equation entirely.

With Bolas's Citadel , you want to cast Omniscience by paying 10 life. This in turn now means you can free-cast literally everything for the rest of the game (Barring that it stays on the field, which it won't).

It does not interact with Bolas's Citadel , by the way. Citadel is a replacement effect. You are paying life instead of mana. Omniscience is saying you don't have to pay the mana. Well, Citadel is already saying this because you don't pay for a spell, you pay 4 life for a spell. You're already NOT paying the .

Because Citadel is not an option, you don't have the choice on what happens. It's because of the wording.

It says you MAY play the top card of your library. However, if you do you MUST pay the life instead of spend mana. So Omniscience would not assist you here. It helps you for cards in your hand, but not for cards on your library.

However, here's where the synergy happens.

With Vilis, Broker of Blood out, you will draw that many cards off of whatever you play. For example, if you play a spell off the top of your library for the aforementioned 4 life, you'd now draw 4 cards, which are now in your hand and thus may be played for free.

Effectively, the setup works like this: (Assume Citadel, Omni and Vilis are all on the field)

  • Step 1: Look at the top card of your library
  • Step 2: Play it by paying life
  • Step 3: Draw that many cards
  • Step 4: Freecast anything you'd like to in your hand; If you don't have anything you'd like to cast for free, move onto Step 5
  • Step 5: Repeat

So yes, this is actually an extremely strong synergy. You'll end up locked once you hit a land, since you probably can only play one land per turn. So I'd recommend going until you hit a land, and play the land off the top of your library rather than one from your hand. This way, you can continue the synergy past the land you topdecked.

If you venture into Sultai, you can use the plethora of green spells that allow you to play additional lands per turn. This way, you can move past those roadblocks more effectively.

In that case, it becomes a combo with synergistic feels to it. The "combo" is in the synergy they create together.

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim

Bolas's Citadel


Vilis, Broker of Blood

To be honest, I don't see the combo here..you may be able to draw out your deck...but if you pull off the set up you can win the game using other cards much easier. Maybe I'm just missing something, can you clarify the interactions here?

Your best bet will most likely be Jodah, Archmage Eternal if your thinking of cheating out huge cost enchantments or spells. The other alternative commanders you have would be Golos, Tireless Pilgrim or Kenrith, the Returned King . Each of those commanders can be built in a unique way.

Using curses is an interesting build as there are several ways you can do them. If going for an enchantment build you can definitely cheat them out using cards like Academy Rector in conjunction with Flash to bring them out. Or even use that combo to grab out Omniscience to free cast them.

For Jodah, you would need to have a really good mana base to consistently get your color fixing. Unless you want to rely on cards like Chromatic Lantern , Prismatic Omen , or weird cards like Cascading Cataracts . For Golos, its pretty much ramp and control and free cast for , he allows you to cheat out stuff. His build would be more for value control. Kenrith is very open ended and can do a plethora of builds so he is just pure value.

Love to see another Angel EDH deck made here on tapped out. I am also working on an EDH Angel Tribal Deck Angels Brought The Apocalypse. It's defiantly on the competitive side but noticed we share a lot of cards already. Also depending on what you mean by making them cheap, here's my recommendation list.

Cheap Angels to add maybe: Angel of Finality , Exquisite Archangel , Serra's Guardian , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Reya Dawnbringer , Resolute Archangel , Deathless Angel , and Twilight Shepherd .

Expensive Angels you could add: Akroma, Angel of Wrath , Angel of the Dire Hour , Baneslayer Angel , Archangel of Tithes , Karmic Guide , and Platinum Angel .

Looking at your deck already I definitely recommend adding Deathless Angel , Baneslayer Angel , Sephara, Sky's Blade , and Serra's Guardian .

Lastly, if this deck is already made, Shalai, Voice of Plenty cannot be in your mono white deck because there is green in its color identity. Even though green is not in its casting cost it has green in its ability. That's why Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is considered a five color commander even though he is still colorless.

Jhoira's never been a commander I enjoy due to the low interaction, but I really like your choice of spells like Knowledge Exploitation to grab your opponents stuff.

Personally, I prefer Kozilek, the Great Distortion for Eldrazi tribal and favor Jodah, Archmage Eternal , Golos, Tireless Pilgrim or Ramos, Dragon Engine for "big mana" decks, due to the more interactive playstyles and access to more colors. Of course, go with what you feel and make your own decisions, there's lots of commander options!

Maybe a good idea would be to make sure your playgroup knows you're not playing cards like Jokulhaups or Obliterate , since the threat of those from a Jhoira deck can make them target you.

Anyway, have fun with it!

Raging_Squiggle on What are mana abilities? Golos ...

An activated mana ability is defined as:

  1. An activated ability that produces mana.

  2. The ability does not target .

  3. The ability is not a loyalty ability.

A triggered mana ability is defined as:

  1. A triggered ability that triggers off an activated mana ability.

  2. Produces Mana.

EX: Mirari's Wake has a triggered mana ability. Carpet of Flowers does not.

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim 's second ability is not a mana ability because it does not satisfy the #1 requirement for activated mana abilities.

As for casting spells without paying their mana costs, any additional costs that are required must still be paid. Gaea's Balance has a mandatory additional cost of sacrificing 5 lands, it doesn't matter if you cast it without paying its mana cost.
