Mana Crypt Discussion

I'm actually working on a The Haunt of Hightower discard build right now, wanting to pack it full of 'symmetrical' discard and sacrifice effects that obviously benefit me more.

SynergyBuild, the thing about my Prossh deck is that Food Chain isn't my only way to win. I run a Pod line, several Tooth and Nail combos, a Necrotic Ooze line, as well as the Eternal Scourge /non- Eternal Scourge FC combos, so banning out pieces seems really impractical for the owner.

Full Banlist:

Everything officially Banned by WotC

Mana Crypt : For obvious reasons

Demonic Tutor , Fabricate , Enlightened Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , Grim Tutor , Imperial Seal : Makes decks too consistent

Laboratory Maniac : Too 'easy' of a wincon

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher : "Powerhouse of a deck that needs to be stopped".

Winter Orb : Too oppressive

Static Orb : Too oppressive

Mana Vault : Leads to obviously explosive starts, nuts with untappers like Voltaic Key

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice : Can generate too much advantage for opponents to keep up.

Teferi, Temporal Archmage : Powerful combo/stax enabler.

Any hard stax that generates hard/soft locks to keep players from playing the game (basically any good stax decks)

Any streamlined aggro/combo that wins the game consistently by turn 5 or before.

We reserve the right to ban cards/archetypes as needed to keep the meta fresh and healthy for new players. We also ask that players approximate power levels before sitting down to play a game of Magic.

Thanks,

-Management

cdkime, DiverDown

Some of it may be my fault. I've been bringing Aminatou and Prossh to nearly every edh night and tournament, and have been having really good games. I've been averaging about a 95% win rate per night I show up. I've feel like I've surged ahead and my meta hasn't caught up. Many players want to be able to compete, but don't have the funds to do so. So, I've bowed in somewhat and have decided to make semi-competitive decks for my LGS EDH nights. I however do have a group getting together this weekend to talk about making a cEDH league ;)

They have a new in house banlist that I don't remember off the top of my head, things like Mana Crypt , Demonic Tutor , a bunch of other "powerful" stuff, and even Prossh, Skyraider of Kher himself lol.

Happy Deckbuilding!

You should run more ramp, because Izzet has trouble with that. Stuff like Sky Diamond , Fire Diamond , Mana Vault , Mana Crypt , Izzet Signet , and Thran Dynamo are all mana rocks, so they replace themselves when you cast them when Jhoira is out, plus they will allow to consistently get more mana available

pesmerga87 - Psychosis Crawler is defiantly a scumbag card that deserves a spot in this deck. I was first shying away from him because it's cost is high and will probably not be able to hold any instant speed reaction, but I'll give him chance!

Hidden50 - Thank you so much for commenting friend! Sylvan Library Should be in every deck that runs green, right? The only reason I am not running it is because I am trying to keep the build on the cheaper side; just for fun. Otherwise, Mana Crypt , Mana Drain , and Pact of Negation would be in there too. My expensive cards are on in another deck.

Savage Summoning is an interest idea. As of right now my playgroup doesn't run an excessive amount of Counterspell so that's not really a problem. They run a lot of single target removal and of course board wipes.

Attunement - I have never seen this card! I absolutely love it. Defiantly gonna throw it in!

A few options you have that could help are: Auriok Steelshaper , Oreskos Explorer and Shalai, Voice of Plenty . They aren't cats but, they would have good synergy with your overall deck construction.

Another great choice for a tribal deck is Coat of Arms .

It never hurts to have more creature tutors--especially in a tribal deck. A few you might consider are: Recruiter of the Guard , Eladamri's Call , Enlightened Tutor , Idyllic Tutor , Altar of Bone , Green Sun's Zenith , Sylvan Tutor and Summoner's Pact .

If you want to go faster you'll need to get more lands out fast and/or mana rocks. That's where green comes in. White has a few spells like Land Tax , Tithe and Oreskos Explorer but, green has stuff like: Burgeoning , Carpet of Flowers , Exploration Utopia Sprawl , Wild Growth , Land Grant , Crop Rotation , Sylvan Scrying , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Birds of Paradise and Bloom Tender .

Other options for going faster are: Chrome Mox , Grim Monolith , Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Mox Amber , Mox Diamond and Mox Opal .

Its also not a bad idea to toss in a few more instant-speed removal spells such as: Swords to Plowshares , Wear Away , Sundering Growth , Nature's Claim , Naturalize , Natural State , Dispatch , Disenchant , Afterlife , Beast Within , Crib Swap and Oblation .

Pikobyte on Muldrotha, the „Fun“ in „Funeral“ *Primer*

Hey brianguy132,

A Chrome Mox could work for the Mox Diamond . Worn Powerstone is a good replacement for Mana Crypt . But if you swap them out then you should replace Trinket Mage maybe. My Mana Crypt is only there to make the mage more useful if I already have the LED. Another rock should be totally fine. The biggest problem is LED, that card is basically a black lotus in here and your chances to win greatly improve if you draw/tutor it. You could try to replace it with a Lotus Petal , never tried that but it may work. If your playgroup doesn’t mind just play a LED-proxy or ask them if you can play the petal like a LED. If you really enjoy Muldrotha and plan to play her for longer you really should consider to trade for that card or buy one. I tested it with a proxy and soon bought a copy, the power of this Card here is just unbelievable.

I'm struggling to find a strong substitute for Lion's Eye Diamond , Mox Diamond , and Mana Crypt . I was thinking the best alternate to get a very similar effect to Lion's Eye Diamond would be Lake of the Dead but you sacrifice a swamp instead of the artifact. I saw you mentioned Worn Powerstone . What do you think are the best substitutions for those three mana cards?
