Zetaomegan on Golos, Tireless Pilgrim's Ability

3 days ago

So i plan to build a Golos, Tireless Pilgrim Commander deck and i was wondering if his ability acted as casting the spell. as in its rules text it refers to casting cards but on the card itself it says you may play the exiled card without paying its mana cost (Not directly saying you cast it)

Basically i want to know if i can get the cast trigger on an eldrazi titan like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger with Golos' ability

Thinking about Golos, Tireless Pilgrim at the helm. Thoughts?

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets , Nicol Bolas, God-Pharoah, Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , Sorin, Grim Nemesis , Teyo, the Shieldmage , Vraska, Relic Seeker and Will Kenrith would be my cuts and then I would add Teferi, Hero of Dominaria back to the deck.

My reasoning for most of those cuts is the relative power level to other walkers for the mana cost. I know you want to keep golos, but I certainly think you should consider dropping it.

@GhostChieftain: (Analyzes options.)

Options found.

  1. Time Warp : . A card made in response to Time Walk 's Undercosted cost. A balanced variant, & even one that doesn't exile itself.

  2. Temporal Manipulation : A functional reprint of Time Warp; officially left the reserved list via ULTIMATE MASTERS as a Mythic Rare.

  3. Savor the Moment : Inexpensive, but w/ the drawback of not being able to untap anything.

  4. Timestream Navigator : Same cost as Time Walk , but requires her to be put on the bottom of the library for an extra turn; & that requires 10 Nontoken Permanents in play under your control. It's unknown how this deck can retrieve her for infinite extra turns.

  5. Lighthouse Chronologist : A Level-Up Creature that when reaching Lv. 7; requiring 7 , allows an Extra Turn in between your opponents turns.

That's what I could find for good options...

Now for the rest:

Dang, poor Yanling isn't doing so well... Maybe the Starting 2 Loyalty DOES hurt?

Right landbase, huh... I think my Landbase may be such an example; I, mean, the list so far has Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , & Crucible of Worlds . I think the question after that is the last question about Wrenn and Six ; but not only is it the hardest to answer, but it involves the Instants & Sorceries having Retrace as an Emblem. Well, at least we have a 2CMC Walker that is great after the hell Tibalt went through until WAR; where he was improved just a little bit; but for the Half Devil, that's a Thumbsupsky enough.

Heh... I figured as much about Xenagos. Now I might be learning something...

Well, at least one Walker with a Starting Loyalty of 2 is to be added...

I know my center color is infamous as a gambling color, but I'm taking my chances on this.

Well, I will say this, I really appreciate all the help I could about this. But if I had one thing to say, it's...:

(Huh... Now I think about it, I think I might actually have learned something. But how can I even learn that very thing if I'm DEAD?!)

Well, I'm actually not dead; just a failed attempt to reference Scott Pilgrim (The Movie, obviously. Though it's a World of Sin that I'm the only Atoner who hates Wallace Wells; Bad art (Graphic Novels.). Bad personality (Both.). He isn't even good as anything. Sorry, but if I had a gripe about the film, Knives' Dad was mentioned, but never shown; & he is an absolute badass.)

No really though, this is going to sound really stupid, but as I'm making a Human Tribal deck as we speak, other plans are still imprinted in my head:

  1. Is there a place anywhere in Commander for Inverter of Truth ? MTG Goldfish even stated this card as "Against all Odds" material, & has an episode about a deck tech about this.

  2. It's quite ironic nobody wants to see a Mono- deck w/ elements outside of that of itself. We got Vivien's Arkbow , Tree of Tales , even Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger stated Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is nothing but a dumbass on all regards stating Nature is the prime winner; BUT STILL MADE ARTIFACT CREATURES in w/ quotes by him. Such hypocrisy from a Praetor that Nature is superior to actual though of mind, & INVENTED his own creatures! & this is before KALADESH! While we're at this, there even is Birthing Pod ; another Artifact. I actually have plans to make an anti- Mono- deck. I know everyone wants to say no, but after the accordion crap earlier on, I think it's time to settle the debate: Birds of Paradise to anyone w/ Reach (Spiders must die.). Philosophy of Nature to Philosophy of Evolution (Also Mono- possible, so it does work.), Impurity Killers to even what Thrun, the Last Troll , who is very supportive of the idea of artifice in spite of his Mono- status, as well as his kind driven to extinction. I'll proceed by the time I'm finished w/ my The Red Pill Vorthos Deck.

Sorry about all that. I've so many ideas, it's criminal. Well thanks for all you could; I'm guessing Inverter of Truth won't work in a The First Sliv deck about Casting Self-Exile Spells, while retrieving them back just as easily, are there any cards that can just retrieve Exiled cards FACE-DOWN (Face-Down being the key term; normally Exiled cards are face-up.)? If not, could it still work? I'll keep the Devoid Eldrazi in the Maybeboard until further notice. Well, I'll end this soon enough; but the other 2 projects are literally in my path currently; & wow. How I wasn't working on cEDH Boros after a second cEDH project in the works; sadly, I'm no Limited Edition ALPHA player, so to those that require expensive stuff, why? & are there any conventional reprints that do just as well?

Well, as Gene Wilder would say: Adieu. Adieu. Parting is such sweet sorrow.

@GhostChieftain: LET'S BUMP IT UP 200 NOTCHES; Battle of Wits STYLE.

  1. Teferi, Timebender , Chopped. What is the fate of Nexus of Fate here? Is it worth replacing; or is the idea of Ral Zarek 's Ultimate actually worth a Gamble?

  2. Two new Mu Yanling 's have been confirmed awhile back: Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer , & Mu Yanling, Celestial Wind . For Mu #1: if she makes it in, is she worth the re-add of Prismatic Omen for Infinite Draw? or is Mu Yanling, Celestial Wind decent enough? I, mean, one of the Elspeth's Ultimates gives your Creatures Flying as an Emblem; something Archetype of Imagination should be able to remove, though it's for another time.

  3. Golos, Tireless Pilgrim & Crucible of Worlds won't leave this deck any time soon. But in your thoughts, which Walker, in any combination of the following should be kept?

1: Wrenn and Six : Recurring Lands to your Hand is great, one damage is okay, but giving your Nonpermanents (Instants & Sorceries) Retrace? AWESOME!

2: Xenagos, the Reveler : Lots of Tokens? No problem! You'll be netting a lot of ramp in the form of & Mana of any combination! a 2/2 Satyr w/ Haste is good too! Oh, & it's not like you'll need to use that Ultimate of his; it's completely optional!

3: Kiora, the Crashing Wave : Why did I cut her? She stops damage heading to & coming from any target. Does both Card advantage & Mana Ramp at one time; & the thought of a 9/9 every turn is just fearsome. Which would you give the Approval of, & Rejection of these three?

  1. Heh. I just threw that in there as an alt. Solution in case the current Manabase might need minor improvement. Guess not... Ah well...

  2. I ended up simply adding Mirari's Wake as a result of this. But I'd still like some thought on Night of Souls' Betrayal . Is it worth adding? I already have a list of Combos of Potential Consideration in my head as we speak; & one of the combos might include this...

I just wanted to bring these questions back up. Once I got them answered, then I'll leave the rest of the damn job to me; after all, The Mono- deck I'm planning has a Philosophy for WHY needs more Artifice (They're just fine w/ Enchantments though.), Flying Creatures ( Birds of Paradise much?), basically every point against WotC about & its conventional traits. I'll begin after I finish off my Morophon, the Boundless Human Tribal. Or, maybe my Exile Matters Deck... Who knows... Hyro… dorodorodoro…

(Okay, that part made no sense.)

@scotchtapedsleeves: Don't worry. I'll upgrade myself hopefully soon enough; it just seems like mere lies at this point. & for the record; I plan to reconcile w/ someone else first; then I'll get to you after. :)

@GhostChieftain: Thanks. I will go ahead & clean up the Corpses that I failed to do for so long (Dammit WAR. XP)

However, I've still some questions needing answers. After that, I'll shut up; I mean, I've plans for a Morophon, the Boundless Human Tribal Deck, a Kykar, Wind's Fury Vorthos deck based upon a Documentary (God forbid.); a revised project about a Mono- "Impurities" Matter deck, & the last to mention, I'll mention at the end of this post:

  1. Teferi, Timebender , Chopped. What is the fate of Nexus of Fate here? Is it worth replacing; or is the idea of Ral Zarek 's Ultimate actually worth a Gamble?

  2. Two new Mu Yanling 's have been confirmed awhile back: Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer , & Mu Yanling, Celestial Wind . For Mu #1: if she makes it in, is she worth the readd of Prismatic Omen for Infinite Draw? or is Mu Yanling, Celestial Wind decent enough?

1: Wrenn and Six : Recurring Lands to your Hand is great, one damage is okay, but giving your Nonpermanents (Instants & Sorceries) Retrace? AWESOME!

2: Xenagos, the Reveler : Lots of Tokens? No problem! You'll be netting a lot of ramp in the form of & Mana of any combination! a 2/2 Satyr w/ Haste is good too! Oh, & it's not like you'll need to use that Ult of his; it's completely optional!

3: Kiora, the Crashing Wave : Why did I cut her? She stops damage heading to & coming from any target. Does both Card advantage & Mana Ramp at one time; & the thought of a 9/9 every turn is just fearsome.

Which would you give the Approval of, & Rejection of these three?

FINAL: For the Omake/EXTRA: You stated I'd be better off using something like Niv-Mizzet Reborn , or even The First Sliv alongside Squee, the Immortal , & Food Chain in a deck which exiles stuff on purpose (See: Teferi's Protection , Academy Rector , Cards w/ Flashback, etc.). Past in Flames would be great here, but just doesn't have enough of what the rest of the colors can do. That's why I wanted to use Witch-Maw/Atraxa/Growth as they have the best of this in these colors. There is just one problem: Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is meant for more Counters-Support as well as a Supperfriends 99 Slot (Is there such a thing as a Partner Duo that does Domain/5-Colors? No.), & Witch-Maw Nephilim isn't even a Legendary Creature (I guess that's why Ravnica drove these beings to Extinction?), so I can't use it as a CMDR. This leaves us w/ only Partner Commanders unless you tell me different about a Niv-Mizzet that couldn't even beat Bolas, much less live to tell the tale of Bolas' demise; watched over by Ugin. As for The First Sliv , I'm not running Sliv Tribal, so the effect only applies to Sliv Queen 's Mama.

If you can prove me wrong about this; I won't have to use the following for ideas as Partners:

1: Thrasios, Triton Hero & Tymna the Weaver

2: Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker & Reyhan, Last of the Abzan

3: Ravos, Soultender & Thrasios, Triton Hero

4: Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa & Silas Renn, Seeker Adept

5: Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix & Tymna the Weaver

6: Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix & Ravos, Soultender

7: Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper & Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker

I wonder if any of these duos can handle a deck about exiling powerful stuff & even retrieving back your own when you shouldn't even do so...

After all this, It's all me now. Core 2020 will soon be released. Time to call Slivers "Slivs". Elspeth Tirel , Vivien Reid , & Mu Yanling to have a threesome, Bant Style (Yes, I made this up for reasons more meaningful than you'd think. Just look at the basic picture. XP), & if Birthing Pod , Vivien's Arkbow , Bow of Nylea , Wolfrider's Saddle , Verdurous Gearhulk & Thundering Tanadon (BTW, Vorinclex was mentioned in this card's Flavor Text; meaning he isn't against impurities after all. Why can he & Jin-Gitaxias just MAKE UP! We have Ezuri, Claw of Progress ! What's his lore when Ezuri became this?!) taught us anything; I need to prove Mono- can make a CMDR w/ no use of AEthermancy, doesn't need to "Craft" Life to invent it; Or Artifact creatures that kill Impurities (& Fliers; we have Birds of Paradise !); & such a deck will be made regardless on any regard. Time to introduce Nature to the rotten soup known as Peat that after millions of years of evolution (Another Quality.) became Slate, which is, in fact a Metal Composite, which can be used for true crafting of Artifice in .

(sigh... I'll end this now. I think I've gone too insane on the Grixis identity of mine.)

REALLY Sorry about this wall of binary crap. Might as well be the last time to be forgiven for anything... DX

Joe_Ken_ on Golos edh deck

3 weeks ago

So I plan to make a Golos, Tireless Pilgrim edh deck that focuses primarily on Maze's End as a win con using flickering effects to get a bunch of triggers off of him. I also plan to include Thespian's Stage and Dark Depths since it would be pretty easy to get out.

What I am curious about is what else I should go with in the deck to try and make it more optimized or to have a back up plan in case someone gets rid of the Maze.
