Icy Manipulator Discussion
2 days ago
I'm not sure how good of an idea it is, but Deadlock Trap might be worth considering, because it can shut down those pesky planeswalkers. I think in Modern Gonti's Machinations can reliably generate energy on your turn by playing shocklands, and on the opponent's turn by cracking fetchlands.

Is there better verions if Icy Manipulator ?
Also blue taps permanents, if you arent abusing that maybe white might be a splash to consider
Gideon's Lawkeeper comes to mind. I know theres a whole bunch of similar things

Neheb, the Eternal is for the infinite combats Aurelia, the Warleader in conjunction with Aggravated Assault. After you deal 6 damage due to Aurelia's double combat phase, you can go into infinite combats and infinite red mana.
Read Ward of Bones, you are denying them of resources. For , that is easily accessible in colorless mana or burst rituals, a T1 or T2 Ward of Bones stops people cold.
Possible cards that can be cut:
- Chromatic Lantern
- Defense Grid
- Scroll Rack
- Staff of Domination
- Neheb, the Eternal
- Sanctum Prelate
- Angel's Grace
Cards that needs to be cut:
- Elixir of Immortality
- Icy Manipulator
- Rings of Brighthearth
- Strionic Resonator
- Vedalken Orrery
- Aegis of the Gods
- Feldon of the Third Path
- Gorilla Shaman
- Crush Contraband
- Dawn Charm
- Ashes of the Abhorrent
- Austere Command
- Cathartic Reunion
- Faithless Looting
- Tormenting Voice
For land base, you should keep it to 32 or 33. All 7 fetches, Dual Land, Shockland, Command Tower, Reflecting Pool, Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Exotic Orchard, Battlefield Forge, Cavern of Souls, Rugged Prairie, Ancient Tomb, Gemstone Caverns, Clifftop Retreat, Strip Mine, Buried Ruin, Command Beacon, Flagstones of Trokair. Emeria can be cut.

Potential stuff to cut:
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite (Good but costy...), Crawlspace (Who attacks here?), Tamiyo's Journal + Thraben Inspector Combo (Huh... No more mass repeatable tutoring I guess; unless one can suggest something that's not Ring of Three Wishes ( is bad at counters as a whole... :/), anything overcosted (Planar Bridge or even Mangara's Tome.), I don't even know what to replace w/...), Strionic Resonator (This is Plausible; I dunno if I should cut it...), Icy Manipulator (the cost is severe; & can only apply to one opponent w/o Paradox Engine...), Vedalken Orrery (Having Flash is good, but is it good here?), Aegis of the Gods (Is having Hexproof in this case good?), Farrelite Priest (A mediocre Mana Dork...), Several other ETB/CIP Creatures (This is noted as Eldrazi Displacer is booted.), Possibly Ashes of the Abhorrent (VERY Similar to Grafdigger's Cage. Is this good?), & that's all I can think of... Is this a good assortment of cuts, hkhssweiss? I'm just doing some guesses on this for now...

Hello, TheErebos. Someone suggested to you about a certain thing; but I'm unsure if you'd agree w/ my cause...

Yep. cEDH Boros. I was using Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, switched to Aurelia, the Warleader, & now Partners Akiri, Line-Slinger & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. My deck is based on three archetupes: Value Town, Stax, & Prison (Though that might just be another part of Stax.). I wonder if you are interested in this kind of thing; I believe Boros can win w/o going Aggro at all. I intend to try & bring these (& potentially Aurelia 1) to Tier 3. While there are things lack in some ways, I believe they can improve on such ideas in their own way...
Also, I wonder how one can Break Parity, & what Parity even is. I just wonder if these are the right CMDRs for this... (Both are on at least Tier 4.) What options would you recommend for this; given I have stuff that Combos out (Eldrazi Displacer, Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan, Potentially many others.), & stuff that locks down opponents Glowrider, Vryn Wingmare, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Winter Orb, Static Orb, Icy Manipulator, Grafdigger's Cage, Ashes of the Abhorrent, Stranglehold, Kismet, among many others all apply here. What do you think might be a better combo for Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric than Possibility Storm + Knowledge Pool? What do you think is best here for reaching CMC 2 or less here? Also, would Village Bell-Ringer + Smoke help here? Finally, this'll sound stupid, but I'm thinking of a Design for a Partner Commander Related Mat; but I dunno how to make it GP/Pro Tour Legal. Ideas, if any?

@hkhssweiss: I see... Well, I don't want to get close to Voltron in any way. Although that Art for Aurelia #1 looks epic. Just know I'm not just aiming for Infinite Aggro; My initial Plan is Value Town/Stax/Prison. What are your thoughts on Kismet? Should I add something like Winter Orb/Static Orb, or even Icy Manipulator? As for Treasonous Ogre, I guess there are ways around this... Lone Missionary can gain more life than lose from the Ogre; given he is flickered by Eldrazi Displacer, not sold on Resplendent Mentor, though it gives infinite life...
That said, FOUR Themes is overkill, & I dunno how to add in Aurelia into this... I don't want Equipment/Auras here, & I certainly don't want an overamount of stuff in such a way... I hope you Understand, sir. I'll be cutting some stuff for now if you want to find a way to add a 4th theme into all this...
...BTW, does Prison technically count as Stax? Just Wondering...

My broad reccomendations for the direction are to go with more of an artifact based playstyle incorperating ways to trigger Macar as many times per turn as you can while clearing the field. then use all your mana for a in shot kill on everyone. a few card reccomendations are as follows but its just what caught my eye Royal Assassin Skirsdag High Priest Scrap Trawler Avatar of Woe Sheoldred, Whispering One Karn, Silver Golem Tragic Slip Tendrils of Corruption In Garruk's Wake Jandor's Saddlebags Strionic Resonator Voltaic Key Icy Manipulator Glaring Spotlight Arcane Lighthouse Illusionist's Bracers Koskun Falls No Mercy Holdout Settlement Hero's Downfall Beacon of Unrest Night's Whisper Unwinding Clock Blinkmoth Urn Scythe of the Wretched Puppet Strings Paradise Mantle
