kamarupa on List of all Mana Dork Creatures

Since this list is really about ramping, I suggest you change the parameters and/or title to include non-creature ramp spells and also creatures and spells that reduce casting costs, which are all just as useful. If this is somehow too impure for your list, I'd be happy to start my own. Just let me know! Here's a few off the top of my head (some are actual dork creatures you're currently missing): Cabal Stronghold , Smothering Tithe , Paradise Mantle , Springleaf Drum , Utopia Sprawl , Fertile Ground , Dawn's Reflection , Market Festival , Weirding Wood , Overgrowth , Wild Growth , Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Explore , Harvest Season , Pyretic Ritual , Geosurge , Black Lotus , Mox Opal , Mox Amber , Mox Tantalite , Rosheen Meanderer , Gargos, Vicious Watcher , Heartless Summoning , Growth Spiral , Incubation Druid , Harabaz Druid , Savage Ventmaw

Hey Daevied, So finding replacements for cost artifacts is pretty tough, as all the good ones are kind of expensive. So, rather than go with the "very best" why don't we look at some less optimal options: Mox Tantalite is definitely one of the less powerful moxes, but it's still a mox! Additionally, you could try your luck with Astral Cornucopia and/or Everflowing Chalice . Of the bunch I mentioned, I'd go with the Tantalite and the Chalice if you had to stick with mana rocks. You'd probably be better off with ramp though. Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are excellent options in my opinion.

Hope that answers your question! Also, your English is really good!

Uhm, well, like most Mox Opal decks, there isn't really a great substitute in terms of power. I'd up the land count slightly and try Izzet Signet and Dimir Signet but just remember that you're going to be slower than you would with the Opal. Really the deck will still have turn 4 wins without Opal, so it's not the end of the world to go without if you aren't grinding tournaments.

You could also try Mox Tantalite and/or Lotus Bloom , which are still slower but can give you the boost of mana in time for the fourth turn, which is generally when you'll combo off. I'd lean towards Lotus Bloom if I was trying those.

Cool, thats a great combo CrimsonChaos, I didnt even think of it. I love interesting interactions like that

I only threw a Mox Tantalite in because i have one sitting around. The Nihil Spellbomb was more to clear out someones grave cause i will be causing alot of discard (hopefully). Will have to wait and see what new cards are revealed in the next week or so. Dont know if i will be running enough artifacts to make Goblin Engineer worth it.

But will definitely keep this combo in mind for other decks.. I have a flip a coin deck that relies pretty heavily on Krark's Thumb and this is a nice way to tutor it. Diligence, The Mother of Luck - Okaun/Zndrsplt EDH

Very nice! One possible addition that comes to mind would be Goblin Engineer . Because you're running Mox Tantalite and Nihil Spellbomb , one possible combo is to play your Goblin, search for your Tantalite, then use your Goblin's activated ability to sac your Spellbomb, which lets you pay the cost to draw a card while also allowing you to cheat the suspend on the Tantalite at the same time!

dryhamm on Suspend Mox Tantalite after Solemnity?

3 weeks ago

Obviously if I suspend Mox Tantalite before casting Solemnity , then its just like without solemnity, but what if I suspend it after Solemnity is already in play? The wording for suspend on the card says "when the last is removed", (not "when it has no time counters on it") but if no time counters were ever put on it, because of Solemnity, is it exiled forever? Or does it just just go directly into play?

How about Mox Tantalite ? I just got one in a pack and was thinking of putting it in my colorless commander deck.

I judge Moxen based on how capable they are in the early game, especially for casting Balan on Turn 3:

  • Mox Diamond requires a land to discard. It's the tamest downside of all of them. The first one I'd consider.
  • Chrome Mox requires a coloured card to imprint. Could exile something important more often than not. Distant second if I really wanted another Mox.
  • Mox Opal requires metalcraft. If I have an artifact-light opener, it can't do anything. Maybe better than Chrome.
  • Mox Amber requires a coloured Legend. This deck has a measly three in the 99, and only one of them could have it active early enough to matter. Worthless.
  • Mox Tantalite requires being suspended. It comes off suspend on Turn 4 at the earliest, and becomes a dead draw very quick. Hot garbage.
