Mox Pearl Discussion

c0dy821 on A Game of 21

Where do I even start?

Your first mistake: You didn't run any Blue. Every Magic Player knows Blue and Black are the superior colors, which means you had a 2 outta 5 chance on picking either of them, but you did even worse, because you chose two colors, and neither of them are Black or Blue. You went from a 40% chance the first pick, to a 50% chance the second pick, and you still messed up. Absolute trash. Now we are working in sweatshop conditions and you chose to take the low road on these jank colors, so let's see if we can fix this subpar deck.

The Commander

Let's see what you got here, Tajic, Blade of the Legion... In a game of magical creatures and dragons... DRAGONS. You chose a human? To lead 99 other cards into victory? How has this made it passed the threshold of your brain? Are there any checks or balances in place? How did this leave the drawing board? And the guy is a 2/2! A 2/2 FOR FOUR MANA?! Absolute Trash. You know how much utility is usually in a Commander deck? 99 cards worth of utility. This guys indestrubability is that of a Steam Roller to an Aluminum Can. And his ability to lead the entire deck is Battalion. Have the ranks gone mad? Who put this guy in charge? That is the weakest Commander Ability I have ever seen. You know what's stronger? Isamaru, Hound of Konda and he is a vanilla 2/2, that costs 1 MANA.

Deck Construction

Consistency

The problem with Commander is that there is no consistency. I honestly think you should consider making it more consistent. You need to run Relentless Rats or Shadowborn Apostles to drive home the consistency, but we are stuck in these inferior colors, so this is really difficult.

Mana Curve

The Mana Curve is pretty decent, but when I looked at the cards in the low end, I went full tilt. None of these spells put a dent in anything, and the spells aren't impactful. You need something that makes a difference when it hits the table, maybe try Scrambleverse or Worldfire at the high end slots, and at the low end slots you might want to consider Mox Ruby, Mox Pearl, and Black Lotus for some speed. You can also run City of Traitors, Rishadan Port, Karakas, or The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale in the land slots, that would help with speed and control. That is just a few suggestions for the low end though.

Utility

I am seeing a lack of utility in some very specific areas. You have a great weakness in the coin-flip control area. This seriously is a problem because you can't win in situations that require coin flips. For instance if the opponent forces you to discard your hand, then casts Worldfire with the mana floating to cast Show and Tell and puts their Chance Encounter into play, then uses Donate to throw it to you, you aren't gonna be able to do nothing but sit and hope you win the game after that point. Where if you had Krark's Thumb or a Goblin Bookie in your deck you could have Goblin Tutored the Thumb, held the two mana for after the Worldfire then casted the Thumb, and you would have had a significantly better chance at winning that game. I'd really recommend Krark's Thumb or Goblin Bookie. Just some food for thought.

As for more utility, you have no pancake potential. You can't flip anything. Which means all morph creatures are going to take a toll on your brain, because you are sitting there wondering if killing the face-down creature is gonna bust you up after you touch it. Well fear no more, Break Open exists, and it is in your inferior colors. This one is a card you can't pass up, it is always useful.

You also can't play any of the opponents cards, which is a huge disadvantage in your case, as the opponent has a high chance of playing Blue and Black if they actually joined the game to win. Just in case I'd put in Shaman's Trance so you can play the opponent's flashback spells(on the off chance they have any) as they are significantly better than your entire deck. Also in the same playing field as Shaman's Trance, you should be running Tempest Efreet just so you can get better cards. We are literally scraping for whatever we can get at this point. Grinning Totem is also highly desirable.

Which Direction The Deck Should Go

I honestly think you should consider playing North Star if you are gonna continue running these colors, that way you can at least pretend you are casting better spells in the superior colors of Magic.

Conclusion

Alright so in summary, after taking into consideration all of my suggestions, you really should just scrap this trash and make something in Black or Blue. I'd also recommend trying to play a real format, as this is basically just rolling dice and counting the higher numbers as winners.

In light of the recent MTGO Commander Banlist announcement, I thought to ask everyone what the banlist would look like if they made it.

The following proposed banlist is my opinion of what the banlist should look like. You will see 3 criteria for what makes a card unfit for the format, and a list of what cards could be banned based on them:

BrandonMurrayBMM on Sram, Senior Edificer | Equipment Voltron

Sorry but there is no reason not to run the 0 drop equipments. It makes your deck a 93 card deck and in a 99 deck format, that's relevant. Their effects are relevant in combat and certainly not useless at all or you must not have played enough Sram. Extra toughness and vigilance matter the most but drawing cards is good regardless. The deck isn't cheerios just because if you run them, you run them because they are good. They are also are broke with Golem-Skin Gauntlets and Puresteel, like most things are. Same with Flagstones of Trokair, Eiganjo Castle, and of course fetches. You run significantly worse land so there is no reason these shouldn't be in over them and yes fetches do help deck thin and do matter with Sun Titan. You should run them. The other 2 swords are still 100% good enough to run and space should be made for them. Flickering Ward is insane and I'd find room for it and Angelic Destiny as well, probably only other aura worthwhile. Skullclamp is broken and should be ran. Dispatch is arguable better than Path as you will almost always have metalcraft which is helped by the Ancient Den and Darksteel Citadel you "dismissed" and aren't running. With those, Mox Opal should be run as it's essentially Mox Pearl. I'd also suggest Mana Vault and Grim Monolith. And the land destruction like Armageddon and Ravages of War are needed and once again combos with Flagstones and Darksteel Citadel. They allow you to control the table and actually kill 3 other players with the time provided or secure your win in a 1v1. Nearly every card in your notable exclusions are great and 100% usable. They certainly should be run, but you come off arrogant when dismissing them for no good reason other than "I dont wanna play these cards because I can't evaluate cards", not to mention you are handicapping yourself while doing it.

So where do rocks like Mox Diamond, Lion's Eye Diamond, and Chrome Mox fit into things? Is it just Wizard's attempt to re-balance something like a Mox Pearl or Black Lotus by providing an additional negative cost?

cool i like it yeah the only thing i see is adding Mox Opal, Mox Pearl, Chrome Mox,Mox Jet and Mana Crypt to speed things up in your early game but if you don't compete they are not necessary and quite expensive. Blade of Selves that could really help you hitting more then one player at a time or getting extra effects out of creatures with etb effects, if you equipped this on Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite for example in 4 player game that is 4 Elesh Norns sure you don't keep them because of the legendary rule and u still keep the original and probably just board whipped everyone and you are untouched.Sculpting Steel would benefit this deck as well Beacon of Unrest could be a nice addition as well and since you are white, black Treasury Thrull is fantastic. other poss.Etched Champion, Armory Automaton and Whispersilk Cloak.

ErebusX on Gatewatch format

1.) In this casual, multiplayer format, you start with a life total of 30 (rather than the usual 20) and choose a Planeswalker (or legendary creature that transforms into a planeswalker) to serve as your General. You then choose cards to match your Generals color identity to build your deck. A card's color identity is any mana symbol appearing on that card.

2.) The Gatewatch deck contains 65 cards: 1 General and 64 others. Your deck may contain only one of any individual card, with the exception of basic lands.

3.) The General enters play in the general zone. You may cast your General from the general zone for its normal costs, plus an additional one mana for each previous time it's been cast from the general zone this game. If your General is ever headed to the graveyard or exiled, you may return it to its general zone instead.

4.) All cards, including your General, must have a Converted Mana Cost (CMC) of 6 or less. In the case of cards with X in their mana cost, X = 0 for the purpose of calculating CMC for construction purposes.

5.) In addition to the normal Magic win conditions, you can win in this format by raising your General's Loyalty to 30 or higher. If recast from the general zone, your General's loyalty always resets to its base value.

Trying to finish putting together a 12 post deck and kind of pimping out a prowess deck. I have some value for trade; Mox Pearl, Underground Sea, Diamond Valley and other goodies

My binder on here is out of date but I have everything listed here

Also wouldn't mind foil Metalworkers or Grim Monoliths. You can also check out an up to date wishlist in the link as well. Thanks :)
