Hedron Crawler Discussion
1 week ago
ok i will admit my perception of what is CEDH is probably a bit wonky.
here are some other fun cards Ghirapur AEther Grid Mishra's Self-Replicator Metalwork Colossus (actually this is pretty good for you...another draw trigger from the grave) Displacement Wave flexible boardwipe/way to recast a bunch of stuff
also Quicksmith Genius is another looter...
Chromatic Sphere remove renegade map or something for it
hell even bad cards like Implements of Sacrifice could just net you a mana
It feels like to me that the ultimate goal is to cast jhoira turn 3 and try to win in the next 2 turns. but you only have 6 mana rocks so whenever i play tested it felt like a good number of times i just played 4 lands and casted jhoira.

If you need help with knowing how much/what ramp to use, you might want to check out https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/brewer-s-minute-ramp-math
I am not an expert in mono, but for you I recommend adding:
Myriad Landscape can go in almost any edh deck
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is solid in any one- or two-colour deck
Lake of the Dead has a downside, but you won't care when you're using it (trust me)
Petrified Field to protect valuable lands.
I'm not sure how I feel about Temple of the False God , but it is an EDH classic.
Other mono ramp
I ended up finding so many mono ramp cards I thought I might as well make a more full list.
Solemn Simulacrum is a good catch-all
Nirkana Revenant is good in the right deck
Bog Witch is kind of weird, but has fringe uses
I haven't thought hard, but you might be able to do some flicker shenanigans with Priest of Gix
Worst case, an edh deck can always load up on rocks. These are some of the best ones for mono black
Sol Ring every edh deck should include this
Pillar of Origins for tribal decks
In most games, these do the same thing: Commander's Sphere , Cryptolith Fragment Flip, Cultivator's Caravan , Darksteel Ingot , Hierophant's Chalice , Honor-Worn Shaku , Mana Prism , Manalith , Orazca Relic , Phyrexian Totem , Powerstone Shard , Pristine Talisman , Seer's Lantern , Serum Powder , Skull of Ramos , Sol Grail , Spectral Searchlight , Vessel of Endless Rest , Victory Chimes , and Chromatic Lantern
Thought Vessel if you fill your hand
Chrome Mox is usually worth the card disadvantage
Mox Amber if you usually have your commander/a legendary thing out
Mox Diamond if lands in your graveyard is a good thing
Mox Opal if you have 2+ extra artifacts
Black Market is good if you tend to sacrifice/kill a lot of creatures
Liliana of the Dark Realms is nice with proliferate, and makes sure you don't miss land drops in the mid/late-game
Sword of the Animist is best with one-mana creatures, and if you attack often, but might be justified even if not
Carnival of Souls is fun with some creature-based combos
Crypt of Agadeem works, but only if you consistently have 4+ creatures in the graveyard
Phyrexian Tower eats your creatures
Cabal Coffers is a staple
Cabal Stronghold is great if you can't afford many nonbasics, and might be good enough besides.

Hi, What about Kher Keep in the mana base ?
Also, i'm running a cheap version of this deck (around 50 dollars) but including more mana dorks (ie Iron Myr Plague Myr Hedron Crawler , Manakin ) what do you think about thoose dorks ? cheap acceleration that synergise with zada, putting more creatures on the board
Also playing impact tremors as a finisher, generating a ton of token, did you tested it too ? Thanks for updates !

These are some of the cards I'm going to take out soon for cards that synergize better with my token strategy. Also I'm taking out some of the mana rocks in favor of more lands. End Hostilities, Obelisk of Naya, Mirrorpool, Healer's Hawk, Wakening Sun's Avatar, Stone Quarry, Seer's Lantern, Hedron Crawler, Gruul Guildgate, Fleetfeather Sandals, Slice in Twain, Siege Wurm, Gruul Signet, Boros Guildgate.

nmiller I mostly have Hedron Crawler in there as a cheap creature that can make me mana and chump block if needed. To be honest, it's the first card I would get rid of and am trying to think of something substantial to take its place.

What is Hedron Crawler here for? Also, Blood Moon would broken in this if you tried to make it more competitive. And some cheap kill spells like, say, Doom Blade or Lightning Bolt to disrupt. I've thought of making a deck like this but never got around to it. This looks awesome!

Maybe, I don't know. On one hand, Grim Monolith produces 3 Mana, while Hedron Crawleronly produces one. However, Grim Monolith takes an additional 4 to untap. Maybe useful for turn to turn mana storage. Also, hedron crawler is a source of colorless, which this deck has a couple applications for. Thanks for the suggestion, MonoBlack SuperRamp may be getting an update soon!
