Hall of Gemstone Discussion

MagicalHacker on Help me punish mean players!

2 weeks ago

How many cards can you think of that are mean to "mean" players? I want to build a deck that forces opponents to win in "fair ways", and I'd love help finding cards for a deck like this!

Using MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Tutor Cards, MagicalHacker - List of All Gold-Hate Cards, MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Infinite Cards, and MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Control Cards, I found these cards (organized by color):

White (5):
Hushwing Gryff
Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Aven Mindcensor
Spirit of the Labyrinth

Blue (2):
Mindlock Orb
Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir

Black (2):
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
Chains of Mephistopheles

Red (10):
Harsh Mentor
Blood Moon
Burning Earth
From the Ashes
Possibility Storm
Price of Glory
Stoneshaker Shaman
War's Toll

Green (7):
Titania's Song
Wave of Vitriol
City of Solitude
Dosan the Falling Leaf
Hall of Gemstone
Heartwood Storyteller

Colorless (7):
Cursed Totem
Damping Matrix
Knowledge Pool
Null Rod
Torpor Orb
Omen Machine
Uba Mask

Multicolored (5):
Gaddock Teeg
Kambal, Consul of Allocation
Burning-Tree Shaman
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed
Vexing Shusher

Based on those cards, I think I'm going to build a gruul deck using Ruric Thar, the Unbowed as the commander or a cheap commander that can help ramp me into my cards (Radha, Heir to Keld). Some questions:

  1. Are there any other cards for gruul that you think would fit this theme?
  2. Are there any reasons to choose something other than gruul?
  3. If gruul is the best for this, what gruul commander should I use, and why?

Seshiro is one of my favorites. Here are some considerations that might fill gaps:

Avoid Fate, Raking Canopy, Seedborn Muse, Snake Umbra, Bear Umbra, Frontier Siege, Stonehoof Chieftain, Hall of Gemstone, Skullwinder, Praetor's Counsel, Seed the Land, Endless Swarm, Zendikar Resurgent, Shamanic Revelation, Snake Pit, Rhonas's monument, Nylea, God of the Hunt and/or Rhonas the Indomitable.

Mana Reflection, Sylvan Library, Earthcraft, and Gaea's Cradle if you got em.

Forests are a risky Gauntlet to give out, maybe downgrade to Caged Sun if meta is heavy green.

Haven't used Mouth / Feed yet but probably a decent source of cards.

Some all-stars for me in my Omnath:
Tiger Claws - surprise trample is very nice
Rogue's Passage
Vorrac Battlehorns
Hall of Gemstone - so brutal in most matches
Avoid Fate - no one ever sees this coming
Heroic Intervention - all-purpose defense
Reincarnation - works well, even with sac effects

Worx I agree with you on City of Solitude and will be replacing it with dosan as I have now fixed issues I had in earlier builds with getting that 2 green t3 after PE is out. I see Hall of Gemstone as a great card to get in your opening hand an to drop before you drop sisay as it will ensure that on the turn you combo off no one can interrupt you and it slows down plenty of decks. Worst case scenario is it eats up a counter or removal which would've been used while you tried to win.

Gday mate. The problem with City of Solitude is that it can't be tutored and easily accessed, while Dosan the Falling Leaf and Dragonlord Dromoka are both tuturoble - with Dosan being Human can be brought out counterspell free if used with Cavern of Souls and protected by Mother of Runes and Sigarda, Heron's Grace.

Can't say I would have anything at all to do with Hall of Gemstone in Sisay, as again it can not be tutored. I find that type of control is not needed.... And by the time I would be in a position to drop that, I'd be looking at Sisay herself and setting up the win. But it is an interesting card I'll keep in mind for future decks :)

Thanks for the compliment on my deck and the upvote.... much appreciated.

I think it's unforgivable to not include Paradox Engine and Gilt-Leaf Archdruid in this deck of all places ;)

Krosan Grip over either Naturalize or Natural State. I know it costs a bit more, but that split second has saved me from infinite combos more times than I can count.

You need Sylvan Library and Mind's Eye for more card advantage, I think.

Your land count is RIDICULOUSLY low. I know your commander produces mana, and that you're playing lots of mana dorks, but I'm nervous about your ability to even cast them. At the very least, you will have difficulty rebuilding from a board wipe. For that reason, Heroic Intervention seems like a must here.

You have most of the good anti-blue pieces here (Hall of Gemstone, etc) but you could get great value out of Winter Orb, since you have enough mana dorks to compensate. Also, Carpet of Flowers is an oft-forgotten card that usually pulls its weight, and sometimes wins single-handed.

Oracle of Mul Daya seems very important here. It can help find those rare lands. Also, Steely Resolve can protect your druids from spot removal.

I really wish Conspiracy was in your colors...

And the big target you're missing for Natural Order is Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.

Deck looks good to me! :)

Hey Worx ty for the upvote and I really like you build with the human tribal theme. I was wondering what your thoughts are on running cards like City of Solitude and Hall of Gemstone? I just cut some things to toss them in and I find gemstone to be a great way to shut down multi-colors and blue players without hindering our ability to still do things since our early mana is from dorks and rocks. So it disrupts the table and allows you to take an extra turn to get your ducks in a row and not have to worry about others disrupting you as you combo off

When I used to run omnath, Hall of Gemstone was a godsend. It ruins multi colored decks and prevents almost any interaction from other players during your turn.
