StopShot on Turn 1 Lotus Field?

3 days ago

I might be reading this wrong, but if I understand it correctly, if I start the game with a Gemstone Caverns turn 0, or exile a Simian Spirit Guide for , or crack a Lotus Petal for one mana to cast Amulet of Vigor , and then play Lotus Field as my land for turn, would I be able to tap the Lotus Field for mana before I sacrifice it to it's ETB? If so that's a janky turn 1 Black Lotus in Modern/Legacy.

Kynical: Yes, You want to cascade into Extract , then Timetwister , then Noxious Revival (which resets the loop) in that order. And if you hit the cards out of order, just choose not to cast with cascade.

As for the Timetwister loop with Swan Song , I'm guessing you would first run Timetwister and Noxious Revival with Lotus Petal to generate infintie mana which is unconstrained, and then execute the loop with Swan Song in hand which can counter (insert spell here) which you're using as birb fodder.

Way too many lands and your ramp package needs some major tlc (aka drop EVERY rock that costs 3 and only adds 1 mana).

Boros Signet , Azorius Signet , Izzet Signet , Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Creativity , Fellwar Stone , Pentad Prism , Basalt Monolith , Worn Powerstone , and Coalition Relic should ALL be in here. Don't drop any of the above rocks, add more if your budget allows Lotus Petal , Mana Vault , Moxes, etc.

Generator Servant and Crystal Vein are worth running also.

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's got a gross overall price tag but still plenty of affordable options (i.e. GET Strionic Resonator IN HERE). Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Hey Pikobyte,

I'm loving the deck so far. I dont have LED, but in my meta it works well enough with Lotus Petal . I don't realy like Curator's Ward . I use Journey to Eternity  Flip in the place of the ward. Is a good protection and a tool for recursion. The downside is that exile breaks the card. I think that is a good alternative for protection on this deck.

If your opponents don't bother to exile cards then riftsweeper is not needed, as Emergence Zone with Lotus Petal is an alternative method to netting abundant mana of multiple colours at instant speed (rather than the old Necromancy + Riftsweeper > Elvish Spirit Guide loop)

Lotus Cobra is a great dork, but it isn't favoured by all. If something isn't needed, just take it out (although if somebody turns kozilek into a manifest like with Reality Shift ) or a number of other options you'll be sad for cutting your backup shuffler.

All cards that don't fit your meta can become interaction, additional tutors and altogether improve your build.

Heya superdiglett, just like what bushido_man96 said, what is the focus of your deck? What do you want to do, as it does seem you want to play a value build.

If going for a value build there are a couple cards that you can consider like:

There are plenty of cards you can add in to a value build, but for deck optimization as well as tuning, I would suggest finding a way you want your deck to be built around or having a goal on what you want to do with Muldrotha. Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any advice! I play with my buddy who played with Muldrotha quite a bit and it can get very degenerate depending on how you build it!

If you need help with knowing how much/what ramp to use, you might want to check out https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/brewer-s-minute-ramp-math

I am not an expert in mono, but for you I recommend adding:

Mana Crypt pricey but spicey

Charcoal Diamond goes so well with Sol Ring

Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia - especially if you somehow get more proliferate

Extraplanar Lens

Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are good if you want double-down on sacrificing your own creatures.

Myriad Landscape can go in almost any edh deck

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is solid in any one- or two-colour deck

Lake of the Dead has a downside, but you won't care when you're using it (trust me)

Deserted Temple , Vesuva , Candelabra of Tawnos and Thespian's Stage to double-down on Cabal Coffers.

Petrified Field to protect valuable lands.

Expedition Map and/or Wayfarer's Bauble to tutor itfor all your powerful lands.

I'm not sure how I feel about Temple of the False God , but it is an EDH classic.

Other mono ramp

I ended up finding so many mono ramp cards I thought I might as well make a more full list.

Solemn Simulacrum is a good catch-all

Magus of the Coffers is slow, but might be worth it. Crypt Ghast is a better version.

Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls are good in any deck that sacrifices often

Nirkana Revenant is good in the right deck

Bog Witch is kind of weird, but has fringe uses

I haven't thought hard, but you might be able to do some flicker shenanigans with Priest of Gix

Priest of Yawgmoth and Soldevi Adnate work if you hate your own stuff

Leaden Myr , Hedron Crawler , Manakin , Scuttlemutt , Alloy Myr , Opaline Unicorn , Palladium Myr are usually worse than rocks, but maybe you want?

Worst case, an edh deck can always load up on rocks. These are some of the best ones for mono black

Sol Ring every edh deck should include this

Star Compass , Fellwar Stone , Fractured Powerstone , Mind Stone all fill similar voids

Thran Dynamo , Ur-Golem's Eye , Worn Powerstone , Gilded Lotus , Hedron Archive , Sisay's Ring

Pillar of Origins for tribal decks

Consider Pentad Prism , Kyren Toy , or Coalition Relic for proliferate

In most games, these do the same thing: Commander's Sphere , Cryptolith Fragment  Flip, Cultivator's Caravan , Darksteel Ingot , Hierophant's Chalice , Honor-Worn Shaku , Mana Prism , Manalith , Orazca Relic , Phyrexian Totem , Powerstone Shard , Pristine Talisman , Seer's Lantern , Serum Powder , Skull of Ramos , Sol Grail , Spectral Searchlight , Vessel of Endless Rest , Victory Chimes , and Chromatic Lantern

Thought Vessel if you fill your hand

Chrome Mox is usually worth the card disadvantage

Lotus Bloom , Mana Vault , Basalt Monolith , Grim Monolith , and Lotus Petal for explosive potential

Mox Amber if you usually have your commander/a legendary thing out

Mox Diamond if lands in your graveyard is a good thing

Mox Opal if you have 2+ extra artifacts

Black Market is good if you tend to sacrifice/kill a lot of creatures

Caged Sun , Doubling Cube , and Gauntlet of Power are fair if you want to reach that high mana

Liliana of the Dark Realms is nice with proliferate, and makes sure you don't miss land drops in the mid/late-game

Sword of the Animist is best with one-mana creatures, and if you attack often, but might be justified even if not

Jet Medallion and Heartless Summoning do a lot of work if you play many cards in a turn

Carnival of Souls is fun with some creature-based combos

These mostly work for combo/explosive turns

Bubbling Muck for explosive/combo turns

Dark Ritual for getting a turn 2 Crypt Ghast , etc.

Sacrifice and Culling the Weak for sacrificing. They go nicely with Songs of the Damned

Spoils of Evil for lategame combos

Rain of Filth must be used with caution

Crypt of Agadeem works, but only if you consistently have 4+ creatures in the graveyard

Phyrexian Tower eats your creatures

Cabal Coffers is a staple

It's porbably unnessecary, but if you end up with few basic swamps, consider Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to supplement your Cabal Coffers .

Cabal Stronghold is great if you can't afford many nonbasics, and might be good enough besides.

In response to Arminus: I am referring to the spells that cost 0 mana to cast (example: Fireblast or Lotus Petal )
