Horizon Spellbomb Discussion

radio414 on Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant Combo (EDH)

Yeah, I thought about that a little too. It seems tempting, right? I mean, Evolution Charm has a slot, and that card's generally a forest with extra steps, so why not Traverse? One could easily just go -1 Forest +1 Traverse the Ulvenwald and it'd probably be worth it, right?

It isn't really, unfortunately. The problem is that there aren't that many ways to get Delirium either before or during the combo turn. There are only three relevant artifacts (Horizon Spellbomb, Armillary Sphere, and Wild-Field Scarecrow) and nowhere near enough other ways to dump cards (unless they start printing a lot more cycling lands). I have a hard enough time getting Spell Mastery for Nissa's Pilgrimage, and at least that card has a better fail case.

Evolution Charm earns its spot by being a regrowth for whatever casualty you had during the early turns. Sometimes you just need to play out an Eternal Witness for example, or getting back Wild-Field Scarecrow to get an extra land. Traverse, unfortunately, doesn't do any of that.

Thanks,

Spirits on Glissa, Scrap Trawler $50 EDH

Hi bushido_man96,

Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig are very good in this format, I do use them frequently in $50 budget decks (example 2C Mardu Alesha, Boros' Crust.

Whip of Erebos is very important in this format, often because combos are less prevalent, and often you will be killed through having your life reduced to 0. Lifelink is powerful in $50 budget commander league. Also, it's an artifact so can avoid removal, plus it allows me to recur creatures like Fleshbag Marauder/Slum Reaper/Merciless Executioner/etc that I can't recur, to trigger my Glissa, the Traitor ability to return my artifacts. Sangromancer to can gain quite a bit of life in an Barter in Blood/Mutilate/Etc type situation.

I did opt-in things like Golgari Cluestone/Horizon Spellbomb/Etc because of draw or LTB triggers as well (on stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring for example. I thought I needed more tutors Razaketh's Rite/Diabolic Tutor but you might be right where I need more ramp now. I'll try and get some reps in, I have 4 $50 commanders now, so i usually randomly choose, but I can select, last season, and this season Glissa, the Traitor runs a 33% win ratio (in 4-player pods), so it is fairly consistent.

Graveborn Muse recently added has been doing tons of work for me, giving Bone Picker a chance now, really like the deathtouch.

Horizon Spellbomb would be good for draw and ramp

Aren't you a little worried about the early game? It seems that the average creature cost is 6+ and only 1 mana rock and 3 ramp spells. I feel you will have a hard time staying alive to cast your cards against an aggressive field.

I usually like to play 37 lands with 10 mana rocks and 10 Ramps spells in my green decks. here are some to consider: Drover of the Mighty, Birds of Paradise, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Collective Voyage, Oreskos Explorer, Tempt with Discovery, Veteran Explorer, Expedition Map, Gift of Estates, Greenseeker, Journey of Discovery, Horizon Spellbomb, Journeyer's Kite/Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Mycosynth Wellspring, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Peregrination, Pilgrim's Eye, Search for Tomorrow, Seek the Horizon, Sprouting Vines, Sylvan Reclamation, Sylvan Ranger, Sylvan Scrying, Weathered Wayfarer, Yavimaya Elder, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Burnished Hart

CASUAL EDH DECK

Remember: Try to alternate between Savra (cmdr) and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord to check goodness.

Just to remember: To remove:-Volatile Rig -Horizon Spellbomb-Murder-Korozda Guildmage-Woebringer Demon.

+++We might want to add+++:

+++ Ogre Slumlord+++ Something better for mana/ramp (I'm not really confident about the "Sac costs"... as most of those creatures and enchantments require a few mana to have "sac goodness". +++ Phyrexian Altar+++ Expedition Map+++ Myriad Landscape

Portalis78 is correct: Horned Helm and Horizon Spellbomb have a colored mana symbol and your commander doesn't.

Also, have you considered going extremely aggro? As in keep all your land fetches, like Expedition Map (and add the two land-fetches Portalis78 mentioned also) and a lot of ramp, then fill the rest of the deck up with 50-70 Wastes?

I'm working on a similar build with Lightning Berserker, where the idea is to cast the commander ASAP, then swing as much as possible while playing a land every turn. When your commander is finally removed, in theory you should be able to recast him right away. With trample, Walker of the Wastes could be too big to deal with by T6 or T7 maybe?

Something to consider, anyway. =)

As Izu_Korasu pointed out, 'permanent' is key for Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest. Have you sacrificed a lot of creatures? Use Font of Return to get them back and pump your team. Enchantments and artifacts got you down? They are no problem for Seal of Primordium. Four mana and Horizon Spellbomb is nothing but pure value. What about attaching Ordeal of Nylea to a creature, attacking with it and giving it two +1/+1 counters, the rest of your team one, and netting yourself two lands in the process? Did i mention Dowsing Shaman is in your colors? With all of these wonderful permanents in your deck what else could you add? How about Primal Surge to cause a flood your opponents will be reeling from for days to come? Other fun cards include Implement of Ferocity, Killing Wave, Mycoloth, and It That Betrays. Long story short, Mazirek gets my vote
