- 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
1 day ago
Hey, commenting on here with a list of things you might want to try out.
These aren't meant to all be directly added, more of just things to keep an eye on as you test and stuff. You might want to try to make room for Leonin Squire, because it's really good with LED and Razaketh combo, and Mox Diamond because it's just a powerful card .
Collective Brutality - bin raz/boon and hurt your opponent
Thoughtseize - bin razaketh/ boonweaver or a proactive counterspell
Cabal Therapy - sac outlet or same as above
Linvala, Keeper of Silence - good against green
Iona, Shield of Emeria - reanimated stax
Void Winnower - more reanimated stax
Scroll Rack - Combos with Land Tax
Ad Nauseam - If you get the cmc low enough this is an option. Just don't go below 8 life
Ashnod's Altar - Cheap sac that gets around cursed totem
Leonin Squire - Recurs LED when you're going off with razaketh
Lotus Petal - Fast mana
Weathered Wayfarer - fetches your urborg / coffers
Mox Diamond - powerful
Mox Opal - good with 15 + artifacts
Looks sweet dude and I hope it plays well

Hm. Random one - but have you considered Isochron Scepter ? Obviously it's great grindy tech - even if it's not able to exile counterspell - repeated removal. Furthermore - at that point you could surely include Paradox Engine in order to make infinite mana - and win with Assassin's Trophy . I know that it's an unorthodox strategy and doesn't beat a lot of your stax pieces, but you could also win via a sac' outlet and Gravecrawler at that point too - since glissa is also an elf. plus, having 2 mana draw 2 if you have glissa and clamp on board is pretty sweet.
While you don't run it at the moment - surely Birthing Pod is a no-brainer. You pod away a myr-retriever to get scrap-trawler and begin a KCI loop real quick.
Last suggestion to your manabase would have to be the lack of artifact-lands while running both Mox Opal and KCI - surely the bonus that offers is great enough to run them - as well as them being (bottom of the barrel) recursion targets for Glissa? With dust-bowl and glissa this allows you to fight through some hate - as it gives you a lands-based engine for gunning your opponent's manabase. The other land I'd suggest is Lake of the Dead as The mana advantage on it is incredible! While you're not going to play it on your first turn - the advantage you get from it is actually silly.

Sisay line: Paradox Engine , cast a spell, untap sisay and fetch cards in the following order, tapping them before each untap:
Let mike die at 0 counters, untap stutf, activate bow to bottom it, fetch it with Sisay again, rinse repeat and monument will drain for infinite damage.

Hi, I played Shirei off the cuff a few times as I saw he was cute. But I like your niche view of using wiping artifacts repeatedly.
Have you thought about: Canal Dredger (lets you recur destroyed/hated out pieces) Coretapper + Magistrate's Scepter for an easy 3 card combo? Run Snow-Covered Swamp so you don't share mana with extraplanar lens (but only if you insist on using it) Blood Pet - extra mana every turn. Makes for faster shirei Skittering Surveyor and Skyscanner are both card advantage engines with shirei + sac outlet
Furthermore you should run The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Mox Diamond , Mox Opal , Dark Ritual , Culling the Weak , Mox Amber (since your entire gameplan is focused around shirei being in play anyway), Chains of Mephistopheles vs decks with draw power, Contamination , Imperial Seal . Now next is for sheer faster wins. Ad Nauseam , Pitiless Plunderer can function as a semi- Phyrexian Altar , Demonic Consultation so that you can find your win conditions faster, Tainted Pact is another competitive level backup but requires the rest of the deck to be tuned around it.
When alliegance set drops I'd also recommend Priest of Forgotten Gods
This is clearly a pet-deck. Play it however you want. But honestly? You need to make room for Toxic Deluge , Lake of the Dead , Strip Mine , Wasteland , Dust Bowl . In stax black needs every advantage it can get. But building up until you have a critical mass of mana like with Exsanguinate / whatever is just unrealistic in a competitive meta. It's far too easily disrupted.
A Crucible of Worlds & some fetch-lands would go well. That way at least you'd be able to gain mana advantage turn by turn with almost no loss. Lastly, try running Meteor Golem - I've seen him be busted with Scarecrone and other recursion effects, but ymmv. Especially if you don't like using sorceress queen.

Another great choice for a tribal deck is Coat of Arms .
It never hurts to have more creature tutors--especially in a tribal deck. A few you might consider are: Recruiter of the Guard , Eladamri's Call , Enlightened Tutor , Idyllic Tutor , Altar of Bone , Green Sun's Zenith , Sylvan Tutor and Summoner's Pact .
If you want to go faster you'll need to get more lands out fast and/or mana rocks. That's where green comes in. White has a few spells like Land Tax , Tithe and Oreskos Explorer but, green has stuff like: Burgeoning , Carpet of Flowers , Exploration Utopia Sprawl , Wild Growth , Land Grant , Crop Rotation , Sylvan Scrying , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Birds of Paradise and Bloom Tender .
Its also not a bad idea to toss in a few more instant-speed removal spells such as: Swords to Plowshares , Wear Away , Sundering Growth , Nature's Claim , Naturalize , Natural State , Dispatch , Disenchant , Afterlife , Beast Within , Crib Swap and Oblation .

Took out Caged Sun and Thought Vessel and replaced with Mana Vault and Grim Monolith to improve ramp and lower CMC. I'm considering adding Mox Diamond and Mox Opal as well. Maybe remove one of my 6 drops in the process.

You have enough artifacts that adding a Mox Opal and getting Metalcraft for it shouldn't be an issue. In cEDH the more fast mana you have the better!
