Lightmine Field Discussion

Oh man, Sphere of Safety is your best friend!! Its effect stacks and is a much better card than Ghostly Prison if you are running more than 8 enchantments.

Also Lightmine Field, Detention Sphere, Suppression Field is a great sideboard and Starfield of Nyx adds a win con.

Fog Bank is another great friend, but if you bring enough Detention Spheres and Banishing Lights no one can touch you.

Then, throw a Monastery Siege and a Open the Vaults. The graveyard fun is a huge help if you have Starfield of Nyx. (You can also choose dragons for some protection if fighting burn.) Maybe a Omniscience if you can afford it.

Lightmine Field is fun with Dolmen Gate effects like Iroas. Sorry, I know that's not in the scope of the question, but I can't resist telling folks about it when they're running an Iroas deck.

Price of Glory is phenomenal against control-y decks.

Linvala, Keeper of Silence is another choice you have access to.

I know there's more, but those are all I can think of right now.

This appears to be more of a punishment-type enchantment list than Stax. If you want to go more down the Stax route, I'd advise pumping up on your number of mana rocks and decreasing your average cmc.

Stax is built on utilizing any of the tenants of Sac/Tap/Tax. For sac, I suggest Descent into Madness, Grave Pact, Tainted AEther, Martyr's Bond, and Porphyry Nodes. For tax, Aura of Silence also doubles as removal. For other powerful options, Humility + Night of Souls' Betrayal is pretty mean, and Lightmine Field shuts down token decks if your taxers aren't up.

If you want to add a handlock/discard theme, Necrogen Mists, Bottomless Pit, Oppression, and Words of Waste are all useful.

You probably want to include some additional Wrath/landscrew effects. Damnation, Decree of Pain, Wrath of God, and Infernal Darkness are all good.

Mana Vault and Gilded Lotus are powerful tools to help you outresource opponents, especially after an Armageddon. It would also probably be worth it to include Orzhov Signet.

Tinker until you come across a build that feels right. Happy brewing!

  • I think Elspeth, Knight-Errant can be an acceptable substitution for Power Matrix if needed, although I like the Trample that Power Matrix grants. Likewise Duelist's Heritage is a fair substitute for Battle Mastery and each has their own advantages and disadvantages; Duelist's Heritage sticks around when Isamaru, Hound of Konda dies and this deck has more tutors for Battle Mastery

  • Empyrial Plate is an acceptable alternative to Empyrial Armor but I am not certain I would run both of them. This deck tends to run low on cards in hand and when Empyrial Armor is out the play style changes to accommodate that card. As with Duelist's Heritage and Battle Mastery there are advantages and disadvantages to both Empyrial Plate and Empyrial Armor for this deck; Empyrial Plate sticks around and Empyrial Armor comes down a turn faster unless Sigarda's Aid is in play. This deck tends to run faster and riskier in trade for less resiliency. A more resilient play style, though, is an acceptable alternative and I think the deck can be tweaked to adjust for individual groups, play styles, and meta environments.

  • Regarding recursion I tend not to worry about it (the "fast and risky" plan). At various times the deck has run recursion effects but they tend to take time and resources to use well. At worst recursion cards are a dead draw if there is nothing to recur and at best it gives you some backup. Instead I would rather be drawing new equipment and resources.

@lescheibak

  • Godsend is a fun card but I think it would be too slow for this deck. It is a lot of fun in more casual decks in multiplayer, though, in my experience.

@manbearpig01

  • Thanks for the compliment! I can see Lightmine Field and Clock of Omens doing some work for this deck but, as you said, its difficult to find cards to cut. At this point, unless there are more detrimental changes to the banlist, most modifications to the deck are for direct substitutions of existing cards that, for whatever reason, function better than the existing cards.

Great idea for a one creature build! I find Lightmine Field helps prevent attacks and Clock of Omens.might help mana rocks produce more if you tap equipment. What to swap I couldn't think to suggest, killer commander though!

Okay, brace yourself. I'm going all out.

precociousapprentice on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

1 month ago

I will take your word for the power of your Pillow Fort in your meta, but I don't see anything that is overly powered beyond the usual Marchesa Fort. Lightmine Field will clear a board sometimes and can be useful, Island Sanctuary has limited effect in EDH given the number of flying creatures even if it is a viable alternative to Solitary Confinement in some cases, Blazing Archon is solid, but way too expensive to affect most games, and creatures are the most fragile of permanents, and the rest is pretty bog standard Pillow Fort. Don't overestimate how secure you will be. A Pillow Fort is powerful not for making you invincible, but for changing behavior at the table by making you a less desirable target, and sometimes, a stronger Fort is weaker than a more subtle fort. Politics is the art of convincing people that your way is the best, and that often happens when they feel they are getting the better deal. I am not sure I see how the curses do that in most instances, and were you to play them against me, I am not sure I would behave the way you are suggesting people will.

Seeing that you like the Dovescape shutdown stuff, I would actually get rid of Lightmine Field, as the lock down is good, but it can also prevent you from attacking (I thought about my recommendation and came up with something better). Instead, I would try to get your creatures a little stronger than your opponents and then overwhelm them. For this, Soul Warden, Path of Bravery, Thunderstaff, Thistledown Liege should do well. With all that life gain, you could add another win condition just by including Felidar Sovereign.
