Lux Cannon Discussion

Reverie42 on Well that Proliferated Quickly - Atraxa

3 weeks ago

I see you have Lux Cannon in the maybe-board. If that direction interests you as an alternate plan, there's a few related cards that make a fun combo plan.

Titan Forge is another potentially fun card in that general plan.

One of the things I like about that plan is that all of the pieces are pretty good even if you only have 1 or 2 of them. If you happen to be able to get enough pieces (with say something like Liliana Vess or Ring of Three Wishes, you just win on the spot.

A big ol' +1 for the wonderful theme deck! Always been a fan of Moonfolk.

To the issues you describe in the comments, I have the following suggestions:

  1. To better search up those essential artifacts, Trophy Mage will help her Trinket and Treasure brothers. She will get you your precious, precious Heartstone and another helpful card I'll suggest later. Tutoring for creatures will be a pain in blue no matter what, so rely on card draw as much as you can. I'd move away from big, single-use draw spells like Blue Sun's Zenith and instead focus on ability-based effects. You've got a fair number of Moonfolk Wizards; maybe Azami, Lady of Scrolls can be of service.
  2. When you're rockin' a deck as powerful as Moonfolk tribal, people start to get jelly. And when people be jelly, they blow up your stuff. But there's a Vedalken that can help protect your colorless stuff: Padeem, Consul of Innovation. For your creatures...I can't believe I'm about to suggest this... try Tortoise Formation. And when you're done laughing at my poor judgement, the best thing blue can do to prevent destruction is counter, so invest even more in that.
  3. Finally (and I'm so sorry this has turned into a long comment), I'd like to suggest making some changes to specific cards. Lay Bare isn't doing you any favors. Run literally anything else...okay not Fold into AEther, but other better counterspells. Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Titan Forge and Lux Cannon just seem to be reasons for others to attack you. As they don't help the overall theme of the deck, I'd look to more relevant artifacts like Rings of Brighthearth, Eternity Vessel, Metallic Mimic, Brass Herald, or Door of Destinies.
You've got a very well-designed deck here, in my opinion. And if I end up building Moonfolk, your list is where I'll start. Thanks for putting up with my long comment.

Reverie42 on One Scrappy Chap: Daretti EDH

1 month ago

So, this may be a little out of scope, but have you considered using Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient as your commander?

The top-end of Daretti where you have an emblem and you've recast him is amazing. But I found that without the emblem, using his -2 to get a little extra value out of artifacts was almost always worse than just being able to play R to copy triggered abilities. Stuff like Basalt Monolith, Planar Bridge and Contagion Engine go from "great" to "absurdly broken" and you can easily slot in Lux Cannon and/or Magistrate's Scepter.

At the very least, if you're just looking to mix things up at some point, it's probably something you could mess around with pretty effectively changing only a handful of cards while running this as your main list.

Also, cheers for Colossus of Akros. It's such a great card that seems really underplayed in EDH relative to its power.

I also see you removed Feldon of the Third Path from the precon. It seems like it'd be pretty good with a lot of your creatures. Seems like it'd be a bit better than Heart of Kiran, maybe?

Reverie42 on Stopping Power!

Sorry, I was unclear on Skybind. It's for blinking your opponent's scary stuff by creating a token with Daxos. The most common uses are:

  • Repeatable Maze of Ith. I run a bunch of lockdown effects like Cage of Hands and the like to prevent problem commanders from being able to attack. Skybind is strong encouragement for your opponents to attack each other.
  • Combo disruption. Blinking out things like Nim Deathmantle to stop a combo and bring spot removal online or blinking out Laboratory Maniac to straight up kill someone can be really good.
  • Counter resets. Skybind can basically just shut off things like Lux Cannon and Magistrate's Scepter if anyone is running that sort of thing. Also, any creatures with X costs like Hangarback Walker are really sad to get blinked.
  • Protecting Daxos. This is the use that feels the worse, but if you can blink out Daxos for 3 mana rather than having to deal with the commander tax going up, it makes it much easier for you to recover from a board wipe.

As for Heliod, I agree that his counters aren't that strong on their own (the only source of buff here would be Cathars' Crusade. But they are enchantments, so if you don't have Daxos around, it's another way to trigger your constellation effects. I've been iffy on how good he actually is. On the one hand, a 5/6 indestructible is nice to have around when he's active. Also, things like Heartstone and Celestial Dawn make getting tokens out for a reasonable cost a lot easier (and also help Daxos when he's out). On the other, unless the tax on Daxos has been driven really high, it doesn't take too many activations until you would have been happier just recasting Daxos. I could see going either way, and I can respect that he's just about pricey enough to not want to buy one to find out you're not happy wit hit.

Aethaleon on For the Horde!

I tried using Lux Cannon, but it takes too long. Steel Hellkite might be a good option, especially since I can give it trample or unblockable. I was also considering trying out Distorting Lens to go with Jaya Ballard, Task Mage.

Haha, like red has any way to directly deal with enchantments. Cards I can think of that you don't already have are Spine of Ish Sah, Karn Liberated, Lux Cannon, Steel Hellkite, Liquimetal Coating + artifact removal, Scour from Existence, and Unstable Obelisk.

Urza's Incubator works well here. Steel Hellkite goes against flavor, but hard to pass up. Oblivion Stone, Perilous Vault, and Boompile for wrath. I think Sword of the Animist would help you out a lot too. I see you have Spine of Ish Sah in your maybeboard it's worth playing. I'd also recommend Lux Cannon, and Unstable Obelisk for removal. Aetherworks Marvel, and Oracle's Vault might help with cheating in big guys. Slower, but just a suggestion.
