Inkmoth Nexus


{{T}}: Add {{1}} to your mana pool.

{{1}}: Inkmoth Nexus becomes a 1/1 Blinkmoth artifact creature with flying and infect until end of turn. It's still a land. (It deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)

Inkmoth Nexus Discussion

WizardOfTheNorthernCoast on Steel Wings Steal Wins

Wolfrage76, Inkmoth Nexus is in the 'More power' part, but too pricey right now. I'm planning to get one at some point in time though. I didn't include Quietus Spike because I don't really like the card. Let's assume I have a 40/40 Traxos, hitting a 40 hp enemy would only put him at 20 hp where I could normally kill him. Also, the 3-drop slot is pretty busy and I run Collar more for the lifelink ability than for the deathtouch ability :)

Thanks for the intensive input, Daedalus19876. I'll see about the evasion part once I've played the deck more but the trample should allow me to get some damage in most of the time. Grappling Hook is a really nice suggestion though, thanks! Paradox Engine is for later, when the price goes lower. The stax aspect isn't fun for multiplayers so I don't wanna go that route, though I considered it for a moment :)

Inkmoth Nexus and Quietus Spike would be useful. The collar you have is good but i always preferred the spike.

If you're focusing on manlands, consider Mutavault, Faerie Conclave, Inkmoth Nexus, and Celestial Colonnade. Also, if manlands are your main source of damage, you can ensure a board advantage with Stoic Angel.

enpc on You've never seen Infect done like this before.

Personally I would recommend dropping the Woodland Cemeterys for more fetches - You want to make sure you can do something turn 1 and drawing Inkmoth Nexus and Woodland Cemetery in your oppeneing hand makes for sad pandas.

Daedalus19876 on Thousand Cuts: Tetsuko EDH | *PRIMER*

4 days ago

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor: I really should be running Chasm Skulker, no disagreement. Just don't know what I can cut to add it...I used to run more infect, but eventually I decided I wanted to make that a less common win-con, so just Inkmoth Nexus remains. I also used to run Disallow, but I never wanted to hold up the 3 mana for a slightly-better Cancel (Stifle is different, because it can be cast to neuter a T1 fetchland). Gigantoplasm is another card I'd love to run, but I don't find I have enough I want to copy in my current meta...Again, thank you for your comments!!

gdm1989: Heh, while I love Hope of Ghirapur in general (especially with Gift of Immortality), I don't know how good it is here since I can't reuse it in these colors...I suppose I could run it with Academy Ruins...

Crivaro: I ended up cutting Cloak and Dagger because it makes my commander blockable :( I really wish Tetsuko was a 2/1 so I could boost her power...And I LOVE the idea of Bubble Matrix here, kicking myself for not thinking of that!! Definitely needs to find a slot - thoughts on cuts?

Freyalise50: Honestly? I am running a few evasive creatures that don't need my commander, but I still balk at equipment that make my creatures specifically blockable. Moreover, my curve is low enough that I rarely have trouble holding up mana...

Doctorlobo89: Heh. Cute. I do like that a lot - but it's too many moving parts in THIS deck. In a Chisei, Heart of Oceans deck, though, that could be totally viable!!

LuxCannonator: Riptide Entrancer is a little 1-shot for my tastes. I mean, it does act as a 3-mana steal effect, but Control Magic is my go-to for that effect, and Control Magic doesn't have summoning sickness or die to kill spells...

Color_pie14: Good thinking!

jakethewhale007: This deck performs great in 3-player, and well in 4-player if you draw a decent hand. Your counterspells do less, but as long as you maintain enough draw effects you should be able to survive. I win 95% of 2-player games, 80% of 3-player games, and probably 60% of 4-player games. Those are all definitely above average, but the deck gets less overpowering with more players, alas. And Fatespinner was in where for a while, but it's more of a sideboard here (since most opponents just skipped combat, as you guessed). I'd like to put it back in someday. I think that if you want another disruption-ish piece to replace Back to Basics, I'd take a page from Crivaro's book and test Bubble Matrix - that sounds amazing here. (And thanks for the congratulations!!)

JaceSeeker: The +1/+1 is a downside for this deck, but I've been tempted to run its ancestor Curiosity...

Thank you all, once again, for your insight and comments! This deck wouldn't be as strong without your input.

Hi eoinisaboss

So I'd suggest you want to add 2x Become Immense and 2x Inkmoth Nexus (assuming you don't have a budget issue), I'd also say you should have 4x Ichorclaw Myr and 2x Blight Mamba, the Myr's self pump is often more relevant than Regeneration. You might also want to consider Prey's Vengeance or something like Glaring Spotlight.

My semester is finally over, so I finally have time to answer the ridiculous backlog of comments on this deck!

IAmTheWraith: Thanks! Ironically I removed that synergy, but I can (and have) pulled it off with Inkmoth Nexus, hehe. Nobody expects getting 1-hit by a land in mono-blue EDH!

TheBrodysseus: I'll take a look!

Teysaforever: Honestly, I considered it, but while it would have been fun that's more of Edric's shtick. I'm playing more of a control game than a creature-combo-ish list (I have enough of those already lol).

I'll continue answering comments after lunch :)
