Mana Crypt Discussion

MRDOOM3 on Mana Crypt Banned in EDH?

4 hours ago

Recently, I built my Bruna, Light of Alabaster EDH deck. However, when I went back on to make a revision, I scrolled down and saw that it said "This deck is not Commander/EDH legal", saying that Mana Crypt is not EDH legal. Is this a new ban that I'm missing, or is the website being glitchy (my Sen Triplets deck also has Mana Crypt and the site says that it is EDH legal)?

Okay, so go into edit, delete the line with "1x Mana Crypt and use the site to look up a different version, and put it in as foil.

The website seems to have decided that many cards originating from Commander products (Thought Vessel, Song of the Dryads, etc) are illegal in commander. Also, Recruiter of the Guard and Mana Crypt.

Just thought I might as well mention it to you.

marduedh I definitely agree with you. That can and does happen. I used to run Quicksilver Amulet as a Kaalia backup, but it was little lackluster when Kaalia did land and swing or if I didn't have several creatures in hand. I tried to focus on getting Kaalia out as fast as possible and searching up protection for her. I'm working up the courage to buy a Mana Crypt and have yet to add the Chrome Mox I have. What were you thinkng specifically? Also what cards are weak here or could be replaced?

I think Temporal Mastery has a place here, particularly since you're running Mystical Tutor. I also feel like other mana acceleration is key, since getting out an early Braids could lead to a very fast win. Mana Crypt in particular

Atraxa Super Duper Pals

Ult your planeswalkers and watch your friends scoop. It's been working pretty well so far. I wonder if I need Mana Crypt or not. Please give me some thoughts.

I have been working on keeping my mana well balanced. I recently added Forbidden Orchard and Mana Confluence I should probably add some pay lands but the only one I have right now in my collection is Arid Mesa

I use all 4 oaths but dont use Call the Gatewatch or Deploy the Gatewatch and have been considering what to remove for the sorcery cards.

I added Pernicious Deed and Death Cloud also Reflecting Pool and some signets and ramp to get amy commander out turn 3

So I tried this out on paper but I added Mana Crypt, Volrath's Stronghold, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and Phyrexian Tower instead which have been useful to me but I might remove the crypt and the dragon and add Bitter Ordeal a shame Blightsteel Colossus isnt useful in this due to high mana cost. However Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is the real deal in this deck try it out :)

I strongly disaggre with the "more lands" strategy. Aggro is hard to pull off against control and/or combo, because you have to deal 40 damage or 21 with the commander, while an infinite combo ignores the life total completely. My advice is to speed up the deck by keeping the land count low and adding all the good mana artifacts for , and . This would include: Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Voltaic Key, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Mox Opal, Grim Monolith, Boros Signet, Mind Stone. Coalition Relic is cool too, I would put it in the deck as well.

Also, Duelist's Heritage helps in maximising the dmg output for little mana. Serra Ascendant is a must as well in White!
