Mana Crypt Discussion

Could use some work, to be honest. Cards to add:

Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Bloodstained Mire, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs, Arid Mesa, Priest of Urabrask, Dryad Arbor, Glimpse of Nature, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Emrakul, the Promised End, Sylvan Safekeeper, Primordial Sage, Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Worldly Tutor.

Things to cut: Lumbering Falls, Raging Ravine, Jace Beleren, Cinder Glade, the checklands, Mosswort Bridge, Earthcraft, your remaining basics, and most of your large creatures are underwhelming. This deck seems to have the classic Animar problem: too stompy to hold its own at TRULY competitive tables, and too commander-reliant (though that of course comes with the territory in this kind of deck).

It seems to be that Mana Crypt is listed as modern legal, at least it is in the deck Dragon Boys since the only card listed as not legal in modern is Kirtar's Wrath.

Mana Crypt and Kirtar's Wrath aren't legal in modern.

Also one copy of Scion of the Ur-Dragon could really help you here.

Nice deck mate, but if you would make yourself really able to cast an eight-converted-mana-cost-commander on your 4th turn I suggest you to improve some mana rocks like Mana Crypt

Welcome to mtg, dude! my first concern is the mana base, if you down have any pain lands (Llanowar Wastes, Caves of Koilos, Brushland), Sandsteppe Citadel should your only land that comes in tapped. good land count though, usually mtg decks have a 33% of lands, but I would consider more swamps and less plains, with forests staying high (especially with the Verdant Automaton's activated ability). I would take out Renegade Map, it does mana fix, but it doesn't ramp (consider Wayfarer's Bauble, Expedition Map for a good nonbasic land, or Sakura-Tribe Elder). And for combos: consider Barren Glory with Renounce, Spy Kit with Cornered Market/ Rememberance/ Pack Hunt. Also consider Tower Defense, Ranger's Guile, Heroic Intervention, Blossoming Defense, maybe Bonds of Mortality if you put in more removal, Young Wolf, Ghave, Guru of Spores. And if you like abzan colors, check out Fungal Growth. Plus I prefer the commander format over standard, there's lass turn 0 win assholes with Leyline of Anticipation, Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt, Show and Tell, Omniscience, Enter the Infinite. Hope this helps! If you or anyone else needs more help or have any questions, I'm always here.

I think if you also run Sphere of Safety it would stack nicely with Propaganda and Ghostly Prison

You could also storm off with Mind's Desire by looping any fabricate creature, like Angel of Invention with Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle

I'd also consider swapping Karn for Tezzeret the Seeker or even adding him. Tutoring artifacts seems necessary in this. Especially when you can minus-0 and grab Ancient Den, Seat of the Synod, Mana Crypt, etc.

Oh you have a budget! How about Mana Crypt (edit nvm you have a foil version) and Imperial Recruiter ermm wait...I'm not very good at this. I am obviously all about going fast and pushing things to the limits but I will never go above 32 lands for any commander ever again except maybe for asusa, angry omnath, or turbofroggy. Rocks will always get you there faster. Unfortunately your colors are horrendous for good rocks I will think on this. Mind Stone? Coldsteel Heart? How about you sell your foil copies for regular versions of the cards then buy grim monolith and mox diamond. Blasphemy?

n0bunga: Currently I have Mana Crypt in there, so that helps. I don't like Chrome Mox in this deck even though I own one (the card disadvantage hurts too much, and the deck is too colorless), and I can't afford Mox Diamond.
