Mana Confluence Discussion

Lilbrudder: Generally speaking, I have access to shocks and allied fetches (though I prefer to go without if possible; I hate spending a lot of money on the landbase). Given that I'm playing Wood Elves, the shocks are a given. Fetches I'm not sure about, though Wooded Foothills seems cheap and necessary.

Other than that, I'm possibly thinking City of Brass, Forbidden Orchard, Mana Confluence, Command Tower, Ancient Ziggurat, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Holdout Settlement, Ash Barrens, Exotic Orchard, Reflecting Pool, and Grand Coliseum. Am I missing any important lands under $7?

Mana Confluence is better than City of Brass. i've never seen anyone use a card that wouldnt prevent you from paying life in modern, but i HAVE seen cards that allow you to tap an opponents permanent being played in modern. if your opponent uses such a card they can tap down your City of Brass to damage you.

I definitely would not play Mana Confluence, nor would I go for zero Spire of Industry. I think Spire being better on mulligans makes it worthwhile. Maybe split it 2-2 with Glimmervoid and see what you like from there.

I've also heard good things about Inventors' Fair, that could be a worthwhile inclusion as well if you are relatively low on colored spells.

This deck looks very well tuned and cool! Maybe you could improve your mana base a little by replacing a couple of basic lands with City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Reflecting Pool, Tarnished Citadel, Ash Barrens and Abundant Growth. Since your deck is fairly aggressive, your life total isn't a big factor and you can afford to run a couple of lands that hurt you, as long as they guarantee your mana works out.

Ah, sorry. I didn't even see the tag, lol. My bad.

But I feel that Spire of Industry is definitely better for you. It is really hard to judge for post-board wipe, but I think that Spire of Industry is still the better pick, especially if you have Darksteel Citadel.

But, that's not to say that choosing Mana Confluence over Spire of Industry would hurt you. They're both honestly good cards and I think that it will take the community some time to come to a definite decision on which is better in certain situations.

I posted this thread in the modern help forum. This is modern Affinity.

Without artifacts in play, Glimmervoid leaves play, Mana Confluence hurts me but provides mana of any color, and Spire of Industry provides colorless mana.

The issue is whether I'd rather take 1 damage or tap for colorless when there are no artifacts in play. I feel as if Spire of Industry is a better option, but I'm honestly not sure. How often would colored mana be needed after my board is wiped or hasn't yet been developed. In my experience it happens so rarely it's difficult to judge.

As far as ranking goes, I am certainly not the man to help judge. You might want to specify which format, though (Vintage, Legacy, Modern) because that makes a significant difference.

I can speak about comparing Mana Confluence to Spire of Industry, however. I'm a heavy Commander player who is building a 5-color deck, and Mana Confluence has been the go-to card for me for a while. However, the minute Spire of Industry was spoiled, my interest was piqued.

In Commander where you have 40 life, losing 1 to Mana Confluence isn't so bad. You have a lot of room to give. But even so, Spire of Industry can produce colorless mana for you when you need it without it hurting you. I can imagine in a situation where your starting life is 20, it makes the Spire that much better.

Like you said, if you don't have Artifacts, you lose the game anyway (pretty much). So, in my opinion, Mana Confluence and Spire of Industry are literally the same card to you except one always hurts you for 1 whereas the other one has an alternative ability that doesn't hurt you.
