SurpriZe sadly, this deck is outdated and needs a lot of work and love to reach its former glory since it got popular on this site. They even banned Mox Opal so its not even legal and the images I'd worked on have ugly watermarks now and I lost the originals. Bottom line: this deck is a museum peace.

If you're looking for a fancy combo deck, that's still viable and a rogue deck, let me point you to My other deck.

It's 99% done and very functional. I'm basically just polishing the sideboard.

mtgApprentice21, I've been needing to revamp this deck for a while based on some new cards I've gotten recently (such as Trinisphere and Mox Opal), and I've been thinking about simply keeping most of the shell and rebuilding it from the ground up. The revamped version will likely run Emry, because she's useful artifact recursion that I'm missing, and will likely also include Dockside Extortionist once I get my hands on one.

That said, I'm surprised you haven't yet commented on my Alela build, Alela's Value Train. It's even more tuned than this deck, and has replaced this deck as my main deck.

Short and bittersweet.

I don't have the time, money nor the passion anymore to play this game.

The cost to enter is getting exceedingly out of hand (pun intended), I work 60 hour weeks on 2nd shift so I can never meet up with people, and honestly the game itself has just become boring and a headache to deal with.

I'm going to keep my profile up on here, but as some people may have already begun to notice, I am far less active than I use to be. This will continue to be the case as time moves on.

The game, overall, has just become systematic and methodical. Nothing changes. Nothing excites me. Building decks are taxing and annoying. Even when I do build a deck of which I genuinely enjoy, I'd never be able to justify spending $1,000+ on the damn thing. Even if I did, I'd never be able to meet up with someone to actually play the stupid thing. So, it'd basically be $1,000 sitting there collecting dust.

I spent $460 on all 10 shocks and fetches, I also bought a Mana Crypt, Mox Opal and even the gold-bordered Gaea's Cradle (Was like $90) a few weeks ago. I was trying to convince myself that if I spend the money on the more expensive cards, I at least have them and can swap them in and out of decks as need be.

But then I look at the price of the rest of the deck and it's still $600+. Again, something I can not justify. Not that I can't afford it. It's that I don't feel comfortable spending that much money on a game. Especially when you need several decks at least to play. Nobody wants to sit down and play the same singular deck for weeks on end, after all.

  • "Just build budget? Or netdeck budget decks?"

I've considered it. The issue is two-fold:

  • 1.) Power level. If I bring a $135 deck to FNM and play against other people with $800+ decks, not only would I never win, I'd never even be able to play the fucking thing because I'd lose so horrendously quickly.

  • 2.) Even if I did buy the deck, I still don't have the physical time to play.

The game has just grown tiring. It's time to move on.

Daveslab2022 on Deck to break HappyMaster’s format

Because Chrome Mox costs cards. We don’t have extra cards for it.

Mox Opal needs 3 artifacts to be active and is legendary. So I can’t even have 2 in play at once, which is a problem.

Paradoxical Outcome is the main engine of the deck. It lets us draw cards AND reuse our moxen.

I’m not going out of color to filter color.

I’m already playing the off-color moxen regardless of whether or not I’m playing Manamorphose. This is necessary for the above reasoning.

Without Manamorphose, Mox Ruby taps for when it could tap for or or anything else.

I get that Chrome Mox is a little awkward with Paradoxical Outcome. But only a little compared to adding colors for the sole purpose of adding a color fixer (presumably to fix you back into the colors the deck would be in if it lost Manamorphose). Chrome Mox and Mox Opal work just as well. Hell, you might enjoy their color flexibility.

It just seems almost every time I run into an internal issue with the deck it stems from Manamorphose whether it’s because the card itself doesn’t do much as far as draw power, or because I have to go out of color to play the color fixer, or because I have all these excess colored rocks that leave the primary colored spells in awkward spots.

My first question before jumping in. Could Mox Jet maybe be Mox Opal? I am already have concerns about getting the haste part out. Maybe make the Bauble a pair and do a play set of Mox?

Fallentesla on Kess, a Budget Combo

This looks like a pretty solid list honestly. There a only a couple of things that I would recommend.

The biggest thing I would say is upgrading your mana base. Shock lands, check lands, pain lands, City of Brass and Mana Confluence and any fetch lands you might have.

Another big one is your mana accelerators. you wanna get your cards out as fast as possible so the better the your mana rocks the better you are gonna be. But that totally depends on your budget cause those can get EXPENSIVE. A couple ones I would recommend are Arcane Signet, Dockside Extortionist, Mox Opal, Chrome Mox.

Also I would suggest adding a couple ritual spells in like Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual especially with Kess as your commander.

A couple more tutor spells would also be a good idea with being a combo deck so Merchant Scroll, Demonic Tutor, Gamble are a couple that could be good.

One last card I would like to recommend is Aetherflux Reservoir.

As I said before this looks like a solid start and I hope these recommendations help.
