Grim Monolith Discussion

Grim Monolith for delicious turn 1 and turn 2 Trinispheres and it can allow for some explosive plays relatively early.

Whatever you think is worth getting 9 mana and two planeswalkers in turn 2 wyatt0781, haha

Yesterday I had an absolutely sick start:
Turn 1: Inventors' Fair, Chrome Mox (imprint Pendrell Mists, Grim Monolith, Voltaic Key, untap Monolith.
Turn 2: Gemstone Mine, Mox Opal, 5 mana from Monolith/Key + from mox and Mine for Nissa, Vital Force, untap Gemstone Mine and play Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas.
Turn 3: Sphere of Resistance, Power Conduit
Turn 4: Armageddon, game over!

Would you rather donate a part of your liver or half of your lungs?

Lilbrudder: I can't afford Grim Monolith or Mox Diamond I'm afraid - this Mox Opal is a very specific and advantageous trade. I probably should put in Fellwar Stone, but I'm worried that too few of my opponents will be playing W and/or R. I'm also not very willing to go below 35 lands in a deck with a 5C commander. So I'm somewhat torn...

Mortiganil Thank you so much for the compliment! I really appreciate that my deck list helped you out. For an artifact based build you're gonna want good mana rocks and other cards that synergize with artifacts. In my opinion Mana Crypt is the best rock you can get to improve your deck. Other rocks like Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Grim Monolith, and Fellwar Stone are great too. The tutors I'd recommend are Fabricate, Whir of Invention, and Transmute Artifact (There are others but I don't believe the deck requires more). Other cards that also work really well in the artifact heavy build are Aphetto Alchemist and Voltaic Key. The real star of this build is Paradox Engine of course. It is the center combo piece of the build. Mind Over Matter and Iso/Dramatic combo are now more backup plans now. But yeah, those cards are the stars of the build. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Don't use Gilded Lotus. Use Chromatic Lantern instead. It can eliminate "color-screwed" problems from early on to mid-game.

Throw out Grim Monolith - Basalt Monolith is way better and you can combo it with Rings of Brighthearth for infinite colorless mana. Actually, Rings of Brighthearth can combo with several of the permanents in your deck to a hilariously stupid level on the "Broken Scale".

Panharmonicon + Mycosynth Lattice would be taboo-level stupid because your permanents that do things when they enter the battlefield will, according to the rulings, do those things twice. For example, Oblivion Ring, Detention Sphere and all similar permanents you drop will exile additional permanents. The Lich + Transcendence combo will make you draw FOUR cards for every 1 life you lose instead of two cards.

Copying your permanents' activated/triggered abilities is one of the fastest ways I know to break your combos in Commander format. I think the 'harmonicon and the 'brighthearth might make your deck explode! XD

Well with MM2017 just around the corner i will certainly be getting foil copies of all of the off colored fetches to round this deck off. Can't wait!!! AFter that i still need a foil of Toxic Deluge, Sensei's Divining Top, City of Brass, Force of Will and Grim Monolith.

The Demonic Tutor and Mana Vault are both FBB, the tutor being signed. Im seriously considering getting my Candelabra of Tawnos altered to fit the theme of the deck. its pretty old and has a lot of wear. I feel a good alter would pretty it up a bit. Im also considering getting a Force of Will altered as well cause i still have 3 copies laying around. With the $ savings from not getting a foil FOW i could probably complete the rest of the deck, with the execption of the Grim Monolith foil. I've been contemplating getting a judge foil of City of Brass for some time now. I dunno yet, i think i may pick up foils of the off colored fetches first. We'll see.

chosenone124 is too fast for me. All the stuff he said is right.

As for how I would upgrade them, cards like Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat and Blasting Station are great replacements for Altar of the Brood and Grinding Station.

As for Jeweled Amulet, you can replace it with Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Jet Medallion, Thran Dynamo, Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Grim Monolith... Lots of good manarocks!
