Mage-Ring Network Discussion
3 days ago
Heya Fans, and welcome back to our show. After some practice with our potential new hires we come to our first look at what fresh acts we can bring to the audiences.
After much hiring and firing, then rehiring again, and many hours of choreography, I am happy to report we have had decent results. And that I'm convinced there could be physical changes made. If you disagree or think of something better, please share your thoughts in the comments.
These changes aren't so deck altering as some of the others I am still considering, but I'm still not 100% on them. Need some outside input.
Hanna, Ship's Navigator - ???: Closest things I could find that flies is Razor Hippogriff , Sanctum Gargoyle , and Griffin Dreamfinder but that only covers half. Or is this ability really necessary, can we work around our toys being removed and use this spot to fit something new?.
Azorius Keyrune & Ojutai Monument : for lack of a better word they seem 'cute' now. They seemed useful at first because they turned into flying creatures that shared the benefit other flyers do. Better rocks? Keep? Replacements could include Fellwar Stone , Basalt Monolith could be blinked with Brago... unsure what else is good and not overly expensive.
Favorable Winds : Is it really necessary, amid the other +'s it seems the least shiny, even though it's foiled.
Stay tuned for more to come! We're always trying to keep fresh acts, and as accidents happen replacement performers will hopefully be swift coming. Don't forget the suggestion and vote box on your way out. See you next time at The Circus!

Mage-Ring Network may be useful? Leave it untapped, and at the beginning of your last opponents end step, if you have it left over go ahead and put a counter on it. Slowly build it up out of nowhere.

I would finally visit my most beloved Plane ever - Vyrn.
Idk why I love it. We barely know anything about it at all! But the Mage-Ring Network struck my wonder and ever since, I've loved it.
World building: Vyrn's laylines weakened over time from an unknown power. As this happened, the plane began to die. The citizens pooled their knowledge and resources together in order to streamline and amplify the laylines into the Mage-Ring Network.
Unfortunately, endless repairs dwindled resources. On the cusp of a world war over what little remains, four factions rose up to dominate the landscape.
Grixis, being heavily influenced by mechanics and war, they seek to build artifact siege engines and collapse powers around themselves.
Abzan, seeing their world dying has caused them to seek out resources in unconventional ways. Golgari meets Selesnya. Purge and plunder. Graveyard tricks and mana blooms.
Temur, going back to their natural roots, they left the crumbling citystates and took up residence among the flourishing land where the network began to fail.
Mardu, the raiders of Vyrn. Hellbent on plundering everyone and ransacking everything, nothing stands in their way.
This gives you four unique and distinct styles:
Temur Enchantments and Ramp
I'd have the first set, merely called Vyrn be about the splitting wars and have story-splotlight cards hinting toward a much greater looming threat. Cards like:
You may sacrifice any number of lands you control when paying for this spell. Each land you sacrifice pays for .
Destroy up to three target lands, plus an additional land for each land you sacrificed when casting this spell.
What we discover in the second set, Chaos Unleashed was that the weakened laylines were done on purpose by an ancient civilization in an attempt to bury and weaken a colossal entity that lives within Vyrn. The MRN gave it back it's power, and this is it's return to the surface.
The Planeswalkers would feature Jace and Tamiyo as they attempt to figure out what is going on, with probably Chandra as red is a heavy color in the set being in three of the four factions.
As for the antagonist of the story, I'd say good old Ob Nixilis can be in here, and he is pushing for the wars because he knows what lurks under Vyrn and he wants to exploit it for his own gain.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Vyrn was never actually met, right? Magic: Origins did a little with Mage-Ring Network and similar cards such as Mage-Ring Responder, but no actual set was dedicated to it.
I'd love to see the Network break down, the laylines fray apart, and watch the world descend into chaos as technology runs rampant and magic dies down. Sort of a steampunk-aligned catastrophe.
I'd also love to return to Amonkhet in a few years. It might be best served in a Commander set or in another Coreset, but a return to the desolation would be interesting. Like, use Amonkhet as the basis for black cards if they so another M19 kind of thing.

So, after looking at your landbase I have some suggestions. Since you're running Atraxa you have the unique opportunity to take advantage of Proliferate. Some lands that may be of use to you are the TimeSpiral Storage Lands, aka: Calciform Pools, Dreadship Reef, and Saltcrusted Steppe. Then to support your proliferation madness you could use Mage-Ring Network, Gemstone Mine (because you could just keep proliferating the counters on it, making it punishment free), and Mirrodin's Core. To make room, i'd try and cut your manabase down to around 33 lands. I would probably cut some of the Check Lands, but I would definitely cut Krosan Verge for one of the previously mentioned mentioned cards I suggested.
Also, for the love of everything sane and holy why on earth are you running Mu Yanling?! Wizards even admitted that the cards from that set were made to be intentionally unplayable. The proof is from: Creating Global Series:JIANG YANGGU & MU YANLING:
Now, to properly set expectations: these are essentially special Planeswalker Decks for a Chinese audience. Despite the fact that they are packaged together, I would suggest thinking of them as Planeswalker Decks, not Duel Decks.
Planeswalker decks were purposefully watered down, a product that had little to offer more experienced players. Sorry for the rant, but all i'm trying to say is that you have much better options than Mu Yanling. Try Aminatou, the Fateshifter...just anything but that.
On an additional note, you could also run As Foretold because Atraxa can get that count up very high very quickly. 2 counters every turn (your upkeep + endstep) means you could pop out a free planeswalker on your turn, tap out, and still be able to play responses during other players turns (it says "Once EACH turn", not "Once on your turn") so that would be something to take advantage of.
I think i'll cut myself off here...I have a few more thoughts regarding your deck but i'll playtest it a bit more before I comment again. Good stuff so far though!

Minihorror227 I have all five types because I have full art ones that are all the same theme. I also went and added Ruthless Invasion to add a opportunity to attack for my six 3/4 pests wile also not having to use red mana. (I buff them by imprinting Chief of the Foundry to Soul Foundry) I replaced that Burnished Hart for another Palladium Myr. I asked for Expedition Map and my game store did not have it, but when I do have it I will replace it with Luxa River Shrine When I get my hands on those urzas lands I will replace it with my Radiant Fountain.s. If you think I should do something else please tell me! Keep in mind that I don't need too much mana, Mage-Ring Network does a great job at casting things like Darksteel Forge when I need too. Speaking of Darksteel Forge that's the only card that stayed in the deck after I first made it, but thanks to people like you that saw a deck with a Darksteel Forge and random junk like Will-Forged Golem and Neurok Replica, then told me to shape it into the deck it is today. Thanks for all of the help!

Mage-Ring Network is a storage land I think you missed.
