Lodestone Golem Discussion

Hi marcosaletti! I like the deck list you have here. I think you should embrace stealing your opponent's permanents more than winning with pure damage with Blightsteel Colossus. Don't get me wrong, Blightsteel Colossus is great, but having all of your opponents concede as soon as you take full control of the game can be just as satisfying. I like the Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal combo that can potentially give you infinite mana, but I think you could improve this deck by taking out some underperforming cards like Lodestone Golem, Elixir of Immortality, and In Bolas's Clutches for cards like Mycosynth Lattice, Unwinding Clock, and Sculpting Steel. I also have a Memnarch deck that runs the same type of strategy. If you'd ever want to take a look at my list for some card examples, you're more than welcome to do so any time!

enpc: Yeah... wow I didn't think of that.
n0bunga: I was just saying they were hermit druid lists, I apologize that I gave the wrong impression. I know aggro exists, but then we should talk about midrange, as that is another normal archetype in MTG.
Oh yeah, also vintage? How many aggro decks are in vintage? I guess you could claim dredge is, but come on, like really? that is a combo deck. Ravager shops is more midrangy, Lodestone Golem isn't the epitome of aggro, and Wurmcoil Engine definently isn't.
Really, every format is different, and archetypes change for them.
Oh yeah, and I really like Yuriko! Decent card advantage for 2 mana, it is like a bad Dark Confidant, though confidant is so good it doesn't matter!

1+ for all of the colorless awesomeness!
Willing to consider Lodestone Golem?

Hah! Love the Titania's Song, I thought I was the only one!
Decree of Annihilation doesn't trigger Ruric Thar, the Unbowed and is a cantrip Armageddon. Epicenter, Impending Disaster, Boom and Ruination are great ways to turn the table in your favor as well, with all of your dorks. Trinisphere, Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Lodestone Golem, and other tax effects to improve on the way the land destruction shuts off your opponents. Running more tutors for Magus of the Moon is also great, think Sylvan Tutor or Imperial Recruiter type effects.

@ARAMbo, p0megranates, deakmana: I think what I don't like about stuff like Orcish Lumberjack and Root Maze and Dryad Arbor is the inconsistency. Sure, they're ok sometimes, but sometimes when you draw them later they're actually terrible.
I actually had Dryad Arbor (of course, right?) but I got so mad at how it was basically a mulligan everytime it was in my opening hand I dropped it. I think it events out. If it is in your opening hand, you've mulliganed; if GSZ is in your opening hand (and dryad arbor is in the library), then you don't have to mulligan. I think on balance you can just cut it. Then I traded Green Sun's Zenith for Natural Order, since the only targets for either are Manglehorn, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa. So Natural Order is cheaper, generally.
Going to try Lodestone Golem as another hate bear / sphere effect. Dropped Knollspine Dragon since it has decreasing synergy with the stax plan and was becoming a win-more card. I feel like I need more stuff that can possibly interact with combos (such as The Gitrog Monster), so I'm swapping Shamanic Revelation for Lurking Predators in an effort to just flip Ruric Thar if someone starts to go off with Dramatic Scepter or something. Also should have strong value as a Green Mystic Remora. :)

I always loved Stax decks and their ability to mess up with the game's state. That's an interesting take on the archetype you have there. Hokori, Dust Drinker is well established as a hell of an annoying commander for a Mono Withe Stax EDH, but there's no doubt that Nahiri, the Lithomancer alongside cards like Stony Silence, etc., also could be a blast.
The deck seems decent overall. Your curve is sweet and you're running the usual lock tools we all love. I will only suggest you a few cards that could fit nicely your objectives.
Then, I noticed you weren't running Thalia, Guardian of Thraben which is a bit surprising. As you said that you also were considering Thorn of Amethyst, both may end up as not that effective cards and I can understand your reluctance. Although, I think they both deserve some play-testing time.
The Lodestone Golem feels like a staple in this kind of deck, if you manage to find a place for it.
The Immortal Sun, even if it's not that cheap, provides you everything you're seeking for. It locks a bit your opponents (as you're literally only running Nahiri as planeswalker), gives you the card draw Mono Withe lacks and nullify Sphere of Resistance / etc. effects on yourself... yeah, seems good but it also locks Nahiri... but I feel like this counterpart is minor in comparison to its effectiveness.
Adding an Extraplanar Lens and snow-covered plains could also help to stabilize your mana base/ramp on the late game.
I hope some you will find some of this ideas helpful. Keep up the good work and enjoy brewing! :)

I'd drop some of the following lands just for more basics: Dormant Volcano, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Smoldering Crater. I'll understand if you keep the Urza lands, but I'm not a huge huge fan. You could consider also adding Arch of Orazca, and Maze of Ith.
Just as a start.
