Mana Crypt Discussion

Hey man, sweet deck! Just wondering if you had any thoughts on how to make this a more budget-friendly list? My meta is mostly budget cedh decks without all the fast mana. I currently need to replace City of Traitors , Lion's Eye Diamond , Mox Diamond , Mox Opal , and Mana Crypt .

Do you have any thoughts on how to do this? Are there worse versions of the cards that would work or would it be better to add in more card draw effects to increase consistency and get to the combo lines that remain?

Thanks for your thoughts and looking forward to more videos!

Fetch and shock lands will not make the deck faster. You are looking for those zero cmc mana rocks such as Mox Opal , Chrome Mox , Mox Amber , Mana Crypt , and etc. Even then you won't benefit much unless you are casting two to three merfolks/spells in a single turn. If you are then you can also add Mana Vault and Grim Monolith to that list.

But your deck is about using the TAP mechanic, and not about casting multiple spells in a turn. So fast mana might not be the answer for you.

Instead please consider the follow two suggestions: Recruiter of the Guard , and Thalia's Lancers to help you tutor for your combo pieces.

What are your thoughts on Dockside Extortionist as a budget inclusion, since Mana Crypt and Mox Diamond cost so much?

Have you considered other mana rocks like Fellwar Stone , Arcane Signet , or Mana Crypt ? Also, is there any reason for not running Command Tower ?

I am no competitive EDH player, but from what i can see a good start may be removing the 3cmc mana rocks that you are running with cheaper ones: Talisman of Creativity , Mind Stone , Fellwar Stone are some you might want to consider. In cEDH are played a lot less lands than normal in favor of very cheap mana rocks like Mana Vault , Mana Crypt and Mox Opal .

You might be interested in Rite of Replication and Quasiduplicate . Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker seems good.

Also if you really want to be competitive you surely will run all the cheap counters like Force of Will or Pact of Negation and also you will have to remove all the lands that enters the battlefield tapped with off-color fetches or with utility lands.

I do not know how much competitive you want your deck to be, but if you are a returning player and do not know about you want to check it out.

Hope to have helped.

I say ban Mana Crypt and Imperial Seal for the crime of being absurdly expensive for no good reason. Those cards are only pricey because of low supply created by WotC even though they aren't played anywhere but EDH. There is no reason for non reserve list EDH only cards to cost so much... its just corporate greed. Also they should abolish the reserve list, its not helping anyone play this wonderful game, 99% of the time its doing the exact opposite.

Or just reprint them a ton and don't ban anything, I like that much better!

In reality neither. They aren't really making or breaking anyone.

I would be more on board with banning all of specifically Vampiric Tutor , Imperial Seal , Mana Crypt , and Mana Vault .

Leave Sol Ring and Demonic Tutor specifically unbanned.

My opinion
