Manifold Key Discussion

austintayshus on [Primer] Colored Mana is for the Weak

Neat deck!

Have you replaced Paradox Engine since its recent banning? If not, might I suggest either Manifold Key or Bag of Holding

jaymc1130 on EDH “auto adds”?

Gemstone Caverns always makes my lists for the games where it's in your opener and provides serious value.

Mana Confluence in basically any deck that isn't mono colored.

Ancient Tomb usually makes the cut for me in decks that have enough 2 cmc rocks to cast, other colorless cards I'd like to come down earlier than expected, and wheel effects I'd like to play by turn 2 after dumping most of an opening hand.

Karn, the Great Creator is very close to making the cut for me given the value generated from stopping a litany of artifact based combo archetypes and ability to provide serious utility resilience for decks that utilize an artifact based combo themselves.

Manifold Key and Voltaic Key aren't quite auto adds, but I really like to fit them into decks that run Mana Vault, Grim Monolith, Sensei's Divining Top, Sol Ring, and Mana Crypt.

Lycasde on Will a tapped equipped equipment ...

I'm trying to do a commander deck but im wondering if a creature that is tapped because it attacked with Strider Harness equipped but what if i use Manifold Key to untap the Strider Harness ? Would only the artifact untap or both the creature and the artifact untaps?

list is cool, although I would cut the mill lines for some stax pieces like Null Rod or Trinisphere , especially if you put Voltaic Key , Manifold Key , and Voltaic Servant to untap trinisphere so it is "off" during your turn, but "on" during your opponent's turn.

Maybe a little less agressive and more value artifacts? with Ramp like Powerstone Shard and maybe even Manifold Key . Something like Jhoira's Familiar or Artificer's Assistant . Then a funny payoff like Mishra's Self-Replicator or Retributive Wand (with all the untaping). Sage of Lat-Nam for carddraw (and killing your own wand).

Izzy- - thank you for the comment. You're right that Manifold Key is a strict upgrade - I must have missed that one when viewing the C2020 spoilers. Thanks for pointing that out!

With regards to Time Wipe , I think the mana cost is prohibitively expensive. Five mana, three of which must be coloured, is a whole lot harder to muster than Wrath of God 's four, and that can make all the difference in the world. Given that the creatures are a secondary focus to this deck, I think the added utility of saving one is far eclipsed by the risk of having the wrath come down a turn too late.

Talisman of Progress is already on the list. I was planning on replacing Azorius Signet with Arcane Signet once the latter has been released, since it's strictly better, but I suppose there is no harm in updating the list now.

Minor things that I'm suggesting really, the deck overall seems well built.

Manifold Key can serve as a Voltaic Key and also allow Kangee, Aerie Keeper and other creatures to get through easier if you need to switch slightly more to the offensive, and at the same cost it seems like an upgrade.

Given you have few creatures, perhaps a Time Wipe here instead of Wrath of God it is slightly more expensive and color intensive but does allow you to save a creature and potentially reuse their ETB effect.

There's also Talisman of Progress as an alternative to Azorius Signet which could allow you to play something the turn it comes in, given if you have one color the fixing isn't as much of an issue, alternatively there's Fellwar Stone or the new Arcane Signet at the same CMC.
