Manifold Key Discussion

abby315 on [EDH] Eldrazi Kozilek Deck

1 week ago

I would also cut: Erratic Portal, Lux Cannon, God-Pharaoh's Gift, Planar Bridge, and Titan's Presence as a start. Those are all pretty overcosted for what they're able to do in your deck.

Second, are you focusing on a Voltron-style Commander damage win with Kozilek? I can tell you it doesn't happen very often since he's actually quite vulnerable to removal. I also started with a build that had a lot of unblockable effects, but it turns out that Kozilek isn't the best attacker compared to your other Eldrazi. I'd focus more on using Kozilek for card advantage and digging for your other Eldrazi to win the game.

To that end, I'd take out Trailblazer's Boots and Fireshrieker.

Finally, a few upgrades to consider: Manifold Key is strictly better than Voltaic Key. Platinum Angel and Platinum Emperion are both super helpful and more impactful than Reality Smasher and Sandstone Oracle. Doubling Cube is pretty fun ramp and probably better than Gilded Lotus. Commander's Plate is going to be much better than Whispersilk Cloak, though it's decently expensive rn.

Here's my list that I've been running for a few years, if you want more ideas: Kozi Kozi Commander (Colorless Eldrazi EDH)

Have fun, it's a super fun deck to play with!

Orange+: I'm glad you enjoyed reading my ramblings! People who appreciate it like you are the reason I keep up with it. Thanks for reading!

Kashedbowl: Thank you for the suggestion! Manifold Key has worse art in my opinion and the secondary ability is almost entirely irrelevant to this deck, making it more of a choice of aesthetics. It also can't untap itself, in case you'd want to do that for... some reason. That was relevant back when Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth was in the deck so you could infinitely untap artifacts, but why use that when we have Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter ? But yes, if you want to get specific, Manifold Key is technically better.

Hey there.. amazing effort on putting all these versions of Urza budget options for us!! Superbly appreciated first of all and the deck is sick.

I notice in this $2500 version that perhaps you forgot to put in the Keys ( Voltaic Key or Manifold Key). It is in all versions of the deck except this one so it looks like an oversight I wanted to inform you of.

Pls let us know if that was intentional or is indeed a core missing piece!

SelfieM: Sounds very well thought out...I get the Art over functionality thing.I sometimes add cards for their concept or art over whether they are the best ie Ferocious Pup is pretty lame but i love the art and concept. I also get the big buff big target dilemma...something I hadn't mentioned and sometimes can be underused in the "untap creature" dynamic (these were recently pointed out to me for Captain Sisay) but Seeker of Skybreak and Manifold Key to untap the Artifact untappers like Thousand-Year Elixir with the added bonus of making target creature unblockable...These could also dependant on what was replaced lower or maintain your already awesome CMC Avg. and in all seriousness that is all my brain could muster.

ToxicHawk on Colorless/Blue Artifact Deck Help!

Lanzo493 Cool thanks for the advice. I think I actually have most of those cards you mentioned in my collection too. So run 4xSol Ring, 4xBasalt Monolith. Get rid of all the small creatures. Run mainly medium to large artifact creatures? Should I include things like Palladium Myr at all for more mana or only the medium to large creatures? I think I have 4xManifold Key's as well. For the rest of the space should I do things like Unwinding Clock and Paradox Engine or find other ways to get more mana instead?

Lanzo493 on Colorless/Blue Artifact Deck Help!

You’ll want about 20 lands for a 60 card deck. If you’re running Sol Ring and Voltaic Key, then I suggest also running 4 Basalt Monolith so you can ramp really hard. Also, Manifold Key is (almost) strictly better than its counterpart.

With all that mana, I’d focus on playing bigger artifacts rather than smaller ones. I’d say focusing at the 6-7 mana area would be best. That’s Wurmcoil Engine, Myr Battlesphere, Steel Hellkite, etc.

The most powerful card you can run is by far Tinker. It’s the best way to get out your huge artifacts like Blightsteel Colossus.

Monomanamaniac on Bosh throws a fit

So you might think if adding even more mana rocks like Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Hedron Archive, Worn Powerstone, Blinkmoth Urn, Everflowing Chalice, Gilded Lotus, Palladium Myr, or Iron Myr. You should be ramping as much as possible, you could even consider Extraplanar Lens if budget is no concern. You could consider cards like Myr Retriever, Goblin Welder, Buried Ruin, Goblin Engineer, Junk Diver, purphorous, bronze-blooded or Daretti, Scrap Savant to bring artifacts back from the graveyard. You could consider Mystic Forge, Planar Bridge, or Kuldotha Forgemaster for getting artifacts out of your deck and onto the battlefield. Darksteel Forge, Soul of New Phyrexia, or Eldrazi Monument so you're killing your artifacts only when you want to. Unwinding Clock it's good if you combine it with flash from Shimmer Myr or Vedalken Orrery. Ugin, the Ineffable or Foundry Inspector to reduce the casting cost of your artifacts without affecting the cmc. You could go full ham on some big artifact creatures like Myr Battlesphere, Meteor Golem, Duplicant, Ancient Stone Idol, Mycosynth Golem, Darksteel Colossus, Blightsteel Colossus, Platinum Angel, or Platinum Emperion just to name a few. Other ideas might be Hellkite Tyrant to steal your opponents artifacts Mycosynth Lattice to turn your non-artifacts into artifacts, Illusionist's Bracers or Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient to copy bosh's abilities, Swiftfoot Boots and/or Lightning Greaves to protect your big guy, Voltaic Key or Manifold Key to untap your rocks, or Mind's Eye or incidental card draw. Some lands to think about are Myriad Landscape, Darksteel Citadel, and Phyrexia's Core but not much else.

As per suggestions to take out : Catalyst Elemental, Destructive Digger, Forge Armor, Walking Atlas, Nahiri's Wrath, Wily Goblin (use Dockside Extortionist), Azor's Gateway  Flip, Furious Rise, Generator Servant, Pirate's Pillage, Scarecrone, Filigree Familiar just to name a few.

I would like to start by saying I'm not trying to say your deck is bad, just trying to give you a lot of ideas to go off of and pointing out things that don't really go with the theme of the deck, which is ramp super hard, drop a bunch of big threats, drop bosh and kill opponents. Secondly, I am not a competitive deck builder by any means, I just use the data I have and suggest the things I like. I actually like seeing gosh in the command zone.

Swords4293 on Elsha lets do this!

3 months ago

cards that might help with card draw would be Sensei's Divining Top Jeskai Ascendancy and maybe a Mystic Remora and then Otherworld Atlas and Temple Bell are 2 that help everyone so you might be able to use them for politicking and other win cons with Elsha i've seen are using Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal to go infinite and then use that to get a Aetherflux Reservoir up and running or bounce back everyone else's board with Temporal Fissure and then there's Scroll of the Masters to make it even easier to make Elsha a one shot with your Manifold Key
