Mother of Runes Discussion

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

2 days ago

Hi Hodor1,

I love mana rocks, but I want mana accelerators, it doesn't really do this because once I have a legendary it's too late! I won't test this. Trying to T4-T6 win it's too slow. It would be another tutorable rock with Razaketh, the Foulblooded but with Chrome Mox and Mana Crypt I usually have enough, only once I can think of in play that this would have won me the game, often a Mana Crypt into a Sol Ring is enough. Dead draw early so a no.

Last_Laugh,

Both times I managed to draw my Reconnaissance early on, I tutored my Razaketh, the Foulblooded sac'd Kaalia of the Vast and Mother of Runes/Dark Confidant into Reanimate + Buried Alive and won grabbing the Mana Crypt and Chrome Mox and Goblin Bombardment so it wasn't a factor. I drew it later in the game and didn't find it as big a factor, but still handy. I think it's not the card for me, but its awesome, but I usually just tutor Razaketh, the Foulblooded and win, instead of tutoring nasty angels like Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. In a muti-pod theres usually someone I can attack and resolve with flying, and assuming I've tutored Razaketh, the Foulblooded already, i'll just sac before blocking damage is assigned anyway. Spectacular card, you should run it, see how you like it. In my Alesha, Who Smiles at Death I couldn't live without it.

I've had mixed feelings about Faithless Looting lately, I know a problem I had was drawing Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and then it's hard to combo, but I drew Karmic Guide and other than being CMC5 I haven't needed it, it can cycle cards to draw some A/D/D to my hand too, but wondering if something like Tormenting Voice but it let's me draw and discard 2, as well as flashback if i'm stalled. Just thought I would share.

For starters, you have like 6 more point s you can play with and more than that, Skullclamp is zero points.

I would recommend cutting stuff like Anointed Procession - it doesn't do anything by itself.

Smuggler's Copter could be good here to help tokens connect.

Mother of Runes is a must. She is so good.

Drop the Mana Tithe for a Mind Twist. You also have Raven's Crime and Despise which are solid. I'm running raven's because late game it helps with attrition battles when you're drawing land.

Another suggestion regarding your 1 and 2 cmc creatures. Keep in mind that many of those creatures will be outclassed very quickly in a multiplayer game. Some of them, such as Grand Abolisher, Imposing Sovereign, and even Boros Guildmage have great effects that scale well into the later stages of the game, but cards like Loyal Pegasus, Bomber Corps, and the like become dead draws after the first turn or two. You might consider cards like Mother of Runes or Selfless Spirit as early creatures that scale well into the late game. The same can be said about many of your 3 cmc creatures as well, though you're a bit more solid there.

I love the sentiment and hope you will accept my condolences for your loss. One suggestion I can make that seems both thematically appropriate and has great utility is MTG's own Mom: Mother of Runes. I run an Avacyn, Angel of Hope deck that has an angel sub-theme and Mother of Runes has won the game for me on more than one occasion--not to mention the amount of times she's protected my creatures from removal.

In this type of playstyle, I like Goldenglow Moth. With Entangler or High Ground and Mother of Runes or some way of reducing damage, this card is pretty fun to play -not to mention to look at.

Budget options that are truely great cards that work really well to get the most out of your commander are valuable in this deck. Might I suggest these options to you:

Hope it might be of inspiration.

Best of luck and a +1 from a fellow Sisay pilot!
