Mox Opal Discussion

Brogan54 on Oloro, Ageless Ascetic

1 week ago

My recommendations :

I think most people will tell you that Oloro offers little competitive advantage to you compared to other esper commander like Zur (who can fetch Necropotence into play) or even Aminatou (who is a combo piece in the command zone). I think upsides for Oloro would be that he can do larger ad nauseam and possibly can even run Humility which few decks can win while it is on the board.

LOW IMPACT:

Teferi's Protection

Rhox Faithmender

Debt to the Deathless

Despark

MANA COST TOO HIGH

Merciless Eviction

Anguished Unmaking

I would first add better ramp, better draw, potential Stax, tutors and then other win cons.

Dramatic Reversal with Isochron Scepter is a pretty easy combo. additionally, some more rocks like Fellwar Stone and maybe Mox Opal would be easy ramp.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd on unbanning

PitaGryphon definitely not. I wish, but that would definitely not be enough to revive affinity, especially now that Mox Opal is banned. Unfortunately, the deck is outclassed by everything else happening. Adding one decent synergy would not be enough. Besides, the blowout potential of cards like Vandalblast or Shatterstorm destroying all permanents is a real risk for an affinity deck.

I think Disciple of the Vault might be the scarier card alongside artifact lands. But I didn't play standard in those days and don't know how strong the deck actually is.

abby315 on Is standard broken

Rzepkanut I understand your view, but what is supposed to be the difference between formats if they're all powerful? And how is "power" defined? I think most standard players agreed with you - that's why Rivals of Ixalan sold so poorly as to force WotC to respond by purposefully "power up" standard.

That's what I think SaffronOlive was getting at in the article but didn't really articulate: Fast mana can be a problem in all sets, but not equally so. I think it's fair to say that access to fast mana (and, historically anyway, access to multiple colors of mana) is the defining difference between formats.

Mox Opal is banned in Modern, but not in Legacy. Mana Vault is banned in Legacy, but not restricted in Vintage. Mox Pearl is restricted or banned in everything.

Traditionally, standard has the least amount of fast mana; it's a slow format. The homogeneity of standard right now is not the powerful payoffs, i.e. companions, which are actually pretty diverse; it's that every deck needs to either run mana doubling effects or be so aggressive as to win by T4. This is because the rest of standard isn't balanced around fast mana, around a T4/T5 win, because it is a slow format.

And I think if standard /was/ balanced around fast mana, it would be indistinguishable in playstyle from Modern. (Also, just look at how many current Standard cards are being played in Modern! There has to be some difference.)

Deadpoo111 - I appreciate you taking a moment looking at my decklist. In regards to your suggestion, as we speak, I am on the decline incorporating Altar of Dementia since my deck is more focus on beating down with a heavy-equipped flying construct. However, do not think I will not try it out, so figures crossed it benefits. Thanks again!

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor - Keeping it one hundred, I thought your username read "Hi Daddy Ho Neighbor." How perception betrayed its naked eye. On a more serious note, I do those cards you suggest might provide a bit more utility within my boardstate while also increase card quality during game progression. If I may ask, should I add faster mana rocks such as Mana Crypt, Mana Vault and Mox Opal, as well as Sensei's Divining Top to assist in smoothing out my draws?

GoblinElectromancer on Mechanized Revolution (RW Affinity)

I used to play a decent budget affinity deck kinda like this. First off: I wouldn't play 4 copies of Welding Jar maybe one or two. second: take out the set of Paradise Mantle and put in four Springleaf Drum third: Steel Overseer is only $2 and it's really powerful. I would play it. Vault Skirgeis great with Cranial Plating and gains a ton of life. You should try it. With the banning of Mox Opal trying to play three drops with sixteen land looks difficult. I don't know though because my list is different. I would cut Taste for Mayhem. Nice deck and good luck!

Mana curve would be faster with Mox Diamond, Mox Tantalite, or Mox Opal, but I am keeping the cost down. Demonic Tutor would also be a welcome addition. Duplication spells would be fun as well, such asFlameshadow Conjuring and/or Copy Enchantment. For additional win con, I am thinking of adding Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip.

bantrules12 on Prossh
