PepsiAddicted Karn, the Great Creator (from War Of the Spark)+ Mycosynth Lattice =Opponents cant tap lands as taping a land for mana is an activated ability. so thats sweet. Ive managed to pull it off a couple times with my deck Karn Of Mirrodin and i think i like it more than burning lands with Karn, Silver Golem

@Mortiferus_Rosa: Obviously, the above post is targeted to you. I'm trying to cut all I can; but what's next?: Saheeli, Sublime Artificer , Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast , & Rowan, Hated by All ? Since I added Angrath, Captain of Chaos + Crawlspace , my tokens actually will be harder to kill because of this Angrath. At this point, 25 is all I can reach. Tamiyo, the Moon Sage 's Ult actually would help w/ Tamiyo, Collector of Tales , Nahiri, the Harbinger doesn't even need her Ult. to be good; eg Rummaging, & Exiling Spot Removal. Just Garruk Wildspeaker 's +1 (Notice the "+" as it actually increases loyalty.) allows Mana Advantage via Untapping Lands; or do you think Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner can do any better all at once? I just need more Repeatable ability uses; either Flicker based, or something else entirely; but I can't think of anything else...

Also, assuming I switch back to Sliver Queen , besides Mana Echoes (Doesn't even work in Superfriends.), how'd you infinite her Sliver Tokens for mana via Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter ?

Oddly enough, Karn, Creator of Argentum, (re)Named to Mirrodin by Memnarch & what's left of his memory via Memnites, (re-re)Named to New Phyrexia by 5 dumbass Praetors that need to end their hatred, even using 3, 4, & 5 Colors as allies. > Stony Silence ; & here's why. Karn #3 (Not counting Karn, Silver Golem .) can just use his +1, & you don't have to change your Artifacts to anything else. Effectively giving you a free 1 Loyalty Counter increase. (Deadliest Weapon? Grammar? something Zexion/Ienzo might use? Kei "Chaos" Asuma's Photomancy (Light Manipulation) Tome that can summon a Lizard-like creature of the same Void Base as the others of Under Night IN-BIRTH? NVM...)

Actually, now I think about it, Serra the Benevolent would be a Badass Oldwalker just having even one creature token in play; implying Sliver Queen again. I might need a good way for a "Jank" Infinite mana Combo with Yanggu #2; or does he deserve the chop?

All that said, I'll have to take matters to my own way for now. This'll be hard as hell for me to see what I can remove for walkers alone... Oh, & I used some nicknames as jokes. XP

I had a Karn, Silver Golem deck that was underestimated for a short time. Even 10-ish years ago there were dirty combos to play in it, lol. I did Darksteel Forge + Nevinyrral's Disk + Mycosynth Lattice several games in a row and since then I rarely get a game where I go unmolested for long. Doesn't matter what I play now but I deserve it, lol.

@DemonDragonJ The fact that Jaya is uncommon signifies pretty heavily (at least to me) that she’s definitely not gonna make it through this story.

As for Karn, he was doing arifacts matter waaaaay before Tezzeret. See Karn, Silver Golem .

DrukenReaps on Your Signature Spellbook

Recently this Podcast did this episode on their personal spellbooks. I thought it would be cool if we did the same thing. I'm going to base mine just off cards that mean a lot to me or have been my favorites.


Karn, Silver Golem - my first commander, I still have the deck. I should probably get that up on this website...

Killing Wave - I love giving people bad choices to make and everyone underestimates these cards. Trust me after the 5th bad choice you have to make you'll be feeling the pain.

Queen Marchesa - I had built a few half hearted pillow fort decks before finding her but she leads my first real pillowfort deck. A strategy that I rather enjoy.

Mairsil, the Pretender - Leads my absolutely favorite deck. I've always loved doing weird combos and Mairsil combines cards in ways they are not meant to be. This leads to having the highest potential number of combos in a single deck.

Shadowborn Apostle - I still haven't really settled on who I want as the commander of my Apostle deck but I always have fun charging in with these guys and then bringing out ridiculous demons later in the game.

Vraska the Unseen - I just really like this character... She needs a version that can be my commander!

Quillspike and Devoted Druid - Cheating here a bit since I'm counting this as one 'signature spell' but this is the first combo I remember discovering myself. In reality I was far from the first person to see it but I didn't know that.

Stuffy Doll - I need this to be a legendary creature... It is just such an awesome card and so funny to me!

im also working on a colorless deck useing Karn, Silver Golem id definitely suggest useing urza tron lands ( Urza's Tower , Urza's Power Plant , Urza's Mine and i personally love Blightsteel Colossus (recently won a game with only it and Eldrazi Conscription ) and possibly a Predator, Flagship for removal but all in all i think this looks okay. granted i've only been playing mine for a couple weks.

The Mythic Edition Elspeth, Knight-Errant looks so good. At least we know she's okay roaming the Theros underworld. It would be amazing if we got an Orzhov Elspeth in a future set when she comes back.

Also, I think I might scrap my New Kozi draft in favor of Karn, Silver Golem . I imagine some Mycosynth Lattice combo with Karn and enough mana equates to some mass land destruction. Voltaic Construct with Karn and any rock that taps for three or more mana is a sweet tech that generates infinite mana as well. Yeah, sorry Kozi. I think I'm drafting this.

Omega137 on Your Average Arcum Dagsson Deck

4 months ago

I found out that Arcum has a huge target on his head as soon as you put it into your command zone, so anything that 1)keeps him safe, 2)makes him come out earlier or 3)enables the combo faster is usually a safe inclusion. If I had a Mox Opal , Mox Diamond or Mana Vault to spare they would probably go into the deck as they accelerate into an earlier Arcum when players are less likely to have the ressources to respond. I'd say it's a certain improvement but not a necessity.

Karn, Silver Golem would help as a plan B(or C after Memnarch ) for beating face should the combo-win( Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith for infinite Mana into arbitrarily large Walking Ballista ) fail. Never had a chance to try it out though. I have a March of the Machines somewhere that could emulate the efffect, might try it out and opt for Karn if I like it. Thanks a lot. :)
