- A question regarding the use of Mox Opal.
- Can I tap multiple Mox Opal's for mana before sacrificing them?
- Can I tap a second mox opal for mana before statebased actions?
- Does the player on the play have an upkeep first turn?
- If I have a Scrap Trawler in play, a Walking Ballista on the graveyard, and I sack a Mox Opal, would Walking Ballista return to my hand?

Mox Opal Discussion

Cathartic Reunion is very useful when you have combo piece on hand and you need to put it in the graveyard. Its also a good card filtering.
Mystic Remora is a great card but last times Im playing 1vs1 or 2vs2 and it loses its power then.
Thank you for suggestion!

For whatever reason, this decklist keeps showing only about half of the cards unless I choose to edit and save it. If I do this, it shows the full list momentarily and then goes back to the incomplete one. If anyone else viewing this is having this issue, and for myself if the site doesn't stop being broken, here is the full list in comment form:
1x Ancient Tomb
1x Aqueous Form
1x Chrome Mox
1x Crow Storm
1x Mana Crypt
1x Mana Drain
1x Mana Vault
1x Mox Diamond
1x Mox Opal
1x Spell Pierce
1x Storm Crow CMDR
1x Strip Mine
1x Swan Song
1x Time Spiral
1x Trinket Mage
1x Voltaic Key

I like the idea of playing Smuggler's Copter in a modern goblin deck a lot. Its a fantastic catd. But i dont think you should play the other artifact stuff
Darksteel Citadel makes you mana inconsistent.Ornithopter and Memnite are also Pretty week on their own.Mox Opal gives you ramp that you dont need.What about cutting those and Kuldotha Rebirth and play more Goblins instead.

With your current mana sources, you can only get a turn 1 Hardened Scales with 5 lands, Glimmervoid + Mox Opal, or Darksteel Citadel + Mox Opal + 1-drop artifact. Isn't it too little for your best turn 1 play?

Yeah, I think Rule of Law + Gargoyle + holding a counterspell is pretty good. If all three of your opponents work together they can break out of it; but, you'd still have a rule of law in play and probably have gotten a few swings with Zur, so you'd have necropotence and a huge hand of stuff. IDK, haven't tested it, of course. I'd try it, tho, if I were you.
IDK what to tell you, ramp on free artifacts is very strong. You can cast your stuff sooner in a greater percentage of games. I wouldn't worry too much about the card disadvantage that chrome mox and mox diamond require (and gemstone cavern, and dark rit) - your general is Zur and can immediately get you Necropotence; and (it looks like) your main plan is to reanimate Jin Gitaxias ASAP. You have more (reliable) mass card-draw than most decks: you are definitely in a position to benefit from card-disadvantage ramp.
This line of thinking also sort of makes me wonder why you're not playing Windfall... it refills your hand and puts stuff in the graveyard for you to reanimate. I know it's a bad play to cast windfall and pass; but, just don't make that play! Easy! :)
You know, the most common play I make with Mana Vault is to cast it turn 1 and then use it to cast 2 signets or talismans. Which, is very strong. That's turn-2 Zur. Then, leaving it around helps you turn on Mox Opal later. (I'd say maybe 17-ish artifacts before you want to run Mox Opal.) Also, (not sure if you know this) but a player who skips his/her draw phase (like with Necropotence) can't take damage from a tapped Mana Vault, so there's synergy there with a general that immediately gets you necropotence. :)
While there's some similarity between Mana Vault and Dark Ritual - mana vault is frequently just a colorless dark ritual, +2 colorless mana, then you never use it again; it can be better than that if you cast it on one turn and tap it the next turn. That makes it a colorless Black Lotus, which, you know, is one mana better.
