Helm of Awakening Discussion

WhatevWorks on Initial D Ramos

Hey Openfire, thanks for the feedback. That's a good point, and I do think Final Fortune, Pull from Tomorrow, and Braingeyser could be cut for Ponder, Preordain, and Brainstorm. On the other hand, Silence and Zealous Persecution are decent interaction slots. Silence is , and it forces your opponents to counter it. It also does wonders with Isochron Scepter against a deck like Yidris Melt Banana, Selvala Brostorm, or even Thrasios/Tymna Doomtide a lot of the time. Zealous Persecution is to kill all the good mana dorks in the format, except Selvala. This slows down a lot of decks in the format, as mana dorks are pretty dominant in cEDH. Rebuild and rocks are something I'm not entirely sure about; there are some cute interactions with the rocks (Helm of Awakening, Paradoxical Outcome, Dramatic Reversal), but they don't do much aside from that. I think I'll cut 4 of them for now. Thanks!

Since you already have top in your list, add Helm of Awakening to the list with future sight. This allows you to draw a card with top, then replay top for free. So you can draw your entire library.

Looks like you better get a Mox Amber for this deck now! I will also suggest you add in Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star since they can be used to get you an additional draw and filter mana if you really need it, they definitely have more utility than the other 1 cmc cards you have here. Helm of Awakening is 2 cmc but it's the cheapest colorless cost reduction card that will make all of your 1 cmc cards cost 0, which is totally worth it.

Newest infinite combo piece for commander probably. Play it with Sensei's Divining Top and Helm of Awakening for infinite draw until you draw Aetherflux Reservoir then use your storm count with sensei's divining top to wipe out your opponents.

That or if you have enough money on hand you can draw until you get Lion's Eye Diamond and Elixir of Immortality to generate infinite mana and life gain.

Run it with Sensei's Divining Top and Helm of Awakening. Infinite draw, then you just need to find a way to get 3R to destroy the enchantment and win.

RazortoothMtg on Edgar: are there any (no ...

I would suggest just adding Oathsworn Vampire, a cost reducer like Urza's Incubator, and a couple of sac outlets. Oathsworn, Incubator, and Phyrexian Altar do make infinite 1/1s with the Eminence ability, and incubator and oathsworn are decent anyway, and if you add in an aristocrats subhteme altar can be great as well. But with a lot of sacrifice outlets, you'll be surprised how easy it is to go accidentally infinite, or at least have an unbeatable value engine. Oathsworn Vampire + Indulgent Aristocrat gives you the ability to pay , repeatedly, without spending any cards, and make a 1/1 token, then put a +1/+1 counter on all your creatures.

Other cost reducers you could use are Bontu's Monument (witch makes the combo an instant win instead of needing to wait for the tokens to lose summoning sickness) or Jet Medallion. Helm of Awakening maybe?

The build seems a bit clunky IMO and Aminatou is a weird choice of commander for the build. If you really want to pursue this direction, I would suggest going with Laboratory Maniac as an alternate win condition instead of Tendrils.

Also consider using the Future Sight + Helm of Awakening + Sensei's Divining Top combo. This lets you draw out your entire library and can easily be setup using Insidious Dreams. I had a lot of success using this combo in my Oona, Queen of Fae deck.

Lastly, you need more mana rocks instead of relying on dorks which are more prone to disruption and removal.

Example of turn 1 win's

  1. cast Mana Crypt
  2. cast Helm of Awakening
  3. cast Lotus Petal
  4. cast Mox Opal
  5. cast Mana Vault
  6. cast Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain
  7. cast Sensei's Divining Top

From here we basicly draw 2 cards for each artifact we cast and all spells cost less. There is no garantee it keeps going from here but if your lucky it does. While you keep developing the board, you should focus on making your artifacts cost less, draw and get more mana. For each such card you play, chanses to keep going from there goes up. Eventually your snowball becomes unstoppable.

For winning there are options. Aetherflux Reservoir is awesome because it will win you the game and since it's an artifact, it won't slow down your snowball. Laboratory Maniac is not only a game winner, knowing you have this card in your deck will also restore your sanity when you see your library shrinking like mad.
