Mycosynth Wellspring Discussion

Why are you running Mycosynth Wellspring and Evolving Wilds? It only looks for basic lands, you have none. Run Expedition Map if you want to find the urza lands. if it's for Throne of Geth, run 0 drops and the artifact lands.

I suggest checking out my Artifact Deck. It's based around Snake Basket and Coat of Arms. Works amazing even a cheap version is strong.

Spirits on Budget Thraximundar - EDH $50

2 months ago

Night's Whisper $1.58 is too much, Sign in Blood is $0.18 (and can target opponents), Read the Bones is $0.16 but I don't like the CMC3. Night's Whisper/Sign in Blood definitely the best. Brainstorm $0.70 is even better imo. Ponder is $2.30 so not a great option. Brainstorm/Sign in Blood best for budget. Altar's Reap don't like it either. Costly Plunder also not quite right.

Telling Time also not bad in budget $0.23 lets you scry one to bottom and replaces itself.

Dimir Signet $1.80 is so much. Talisman of Dominance $1.29 is better because it's CMC2. Also, Talisman of Indulgence $0.72. Fellwar Stone $1.25 but less predictable. I think the Signets are great, but $1.80 is tough.

Baleful Strix is $2.95 but pretty amazing, if you free up enough cash for him.

Archfiend of Depravity $1.01 can dominate this format, you've seen it from my Glissa, the Traitor deck.

Displacement Wave slows you down too much I feel, it can give you a Thraximundar alone. You control it with , but it's not going to work in 1 hour format, outside of the 1 hour feel it's pretty weak anyway.

Soul's Fire also feels wrong, a turn you cast Thraximundar you won't have mana for it, only a handful of creatures going to deal enough to be of consequence.

Shrieking Affliction is going to guarantee that 3x players are attacking you, and it's too slow to win you the game.

Nighthowler is a better Wight of Precinct Six (you can run both), he is CMC3, but he also counts your graveyard, and he also has Bestow if you have the extra mana (modular)

Consuming Aberration is a higher CMC, but he can also build the graveyards, remember that time SolomonsEfreet had him out. But high CMC. $1.90 too.

Can up you mana ramp with stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring $0.15,

You have Fleshbag Marauder & Merciless Executioner but missing their good buddy Slum Reaper $0.19.

Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig are great for color fixing and ramping. Wayfarer's Bauble goes onto the battlefield for CMC1 more.

Deadeye Navigator has lots of positive applications in your build, but he's $2.15. I won't list everyone, you can read the LTB/ETB guys, but Peregrine Drake is infinite ETB & infinite mana.

Murder always a nice multi-purpose removal in this format.

Far // Away $0.24 can also be handy.

You're mana source distribution is quite good 24% / 24% / 37% .

Vona's Hunger was pretty good when SolomonsEfreet played it.

Diabolic Tutor for Torment of Hailfire or the other half of Rite of Replication / Gray Merchant of Asphodel win-con.

Dark Petition is $2.32 but can assist with casting the Gray Merchant of Asphodel, I also don't mind Razaketh's Rite because I just cycle it for if it's drawn early on.

Desecration Demon might be fun, he's only CMC4.

I think your fairly balanced too, maybe a little too heavy on Sorcery, sub 1 for an instant or another creature or artifact.

One of the nice things with Thraximundar is you should get left alone early on because your not an immediate threat vs. someone like your Xenagos.

I wouldn't go counterspell (maybeboard has so many), won't work in this format effectively.

Havengul Lich has some recursion built in, but wouldn't say he's really that synergistic with Thraximundar but he can target others graveyards.

He's not a Xenagos, God of Revels but a good serviceable Commander in $50 budget. Crosis, the Purger no way lol, Sedris, the Traitor King would also work but he the same CMC anyway,

Spirits on Glissa, Scrap Trawler $50 EDH

Hi bushido_man96,

Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig are very good in this format, I do use them frequently in $50 budget decks (example 2C Mardu Alesha, Boros' Crust.

Whip of Erebos is very important in this format, often because combos are less prevalent, and often you will be killed through having your life reduced to 0. Lifelink is powerful in $50 budget commander league. Also, it's an artifact so can avoid removal, plus it allows me to recur creatures like Fleshbag Marauder/Slum Reaper/Merciless Executioner/etc that I can't recur, to trigger my Glissa, the Traitor ability to return my artifacts. Sangromancer to can gain quite a bit of life in an Barter in Blood/Mutilate/Etc type situation.

I did opt-in things like Golgari Cluestone/Horizon Spellbomb/Etc because of draw or LTB triggers as well (on stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring for example. I thought I needed more tutors Razaketh's Rite/Diabolic Tutor but you might be right where I need more ramp now. I'll try and get some reps in, I have 4 $50 commanders now, so i usually randomly choose, but I can select, last season, and this season Glissa, the Traitor runs a 33% win ratio (in 4-player pods), so it is fairly consistent.

Graveborn Muse recently added has been doing tons of work for me, giving Bone Picker a chance now, really like the deathtouch.

You could toss in Mycosynth Wellspring and Ichor Wellspring and get some major value from them. Once you have infinite mana from the Drake combo, you can juggle them to your heart's content. Great way to massively thin your deck or just win on the spot.

@bushido_man96: Thanks for the upvote!

I still have to take this deck out for a spin, so I can so far only base my opinion on pure theory.

Concerning the comparison between Herald of Anguish and Phyrexian Plaguelord in an artifact-heavy deck like this there really is no comparison to be honest. The Herald just has so much more synergy, with the improvise and the sacrifice artifact ability (so you can also sac things like Ichor Wellspring and Mycosynth Wellspring). Also, don't underestimate the discard clause of the Herald. If you can manage to let him stick around long enough, this can really hurt your opponents.

I really like Fleshbag Marauder and the likes, but I am a firm believer that these creatures are only inclusions when you have a sure way to recur them often. Unfortunately, they are no artifacts so they don't benefit from Glissa, the Traitor. That's why I left them out for now. This might change in the future though!

Nice to see you agreeing with me on the Myrs. What I like most about them is that I can tap them for mana, Skullclamp them, draw cards and recur them later with Glissa. Rinse and repeat. This is just pure value in my book.

I am taking the deck out next saturday on an EDH tournament. I have all the cards complete (except for Krark-Clan Ironworks, that thing is sold out everywhere.... going to replace it with Ashnod's Altar for now).

Nice build. I'm working on Glissa build myself at the moment, so am looking for ideas, especially for finishers.

In your list and several others, I've seen Herald of Anguish. It looks like a solid inclusion. How do you find it plays out for you? I love the improvise mechanic, meaning it almost never comes down for 7CC, and it synergizes so well with the artifacts. So those are all pluses in my book. But do you think its better than Phyrexian Plaguelord? The Plaguelord is a free sac outlet, but only for artifact creatures in this deck, and not just artifacts. I'm going to consider the Plaguelord for my build. Please, let me know your thoughts on this.

I also see Noxious Gearhulk in a lot of lists, and I understand why. I'm running a lot of the other creature equivalents in my list, like Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, and the other edict-style creatures, to help trigger Glissa.

I like your use of the Myr package to go along with Myr Battlesphere. I'm using just a few mana rocks, but the most of my ramp is coming from cards like Wanderer's Twig, Expedition Map, Burnished Hart, Mycosynth Wellspring, and the like. I find that I usually flood out with lands really well by recurring these items. But using your Myrs with Skullclamp is a solid argument for reconsideration.

Anyways, just looking to bounce around some ideas. Again, I like your list.

Some good things to add here would be Sword of the Animist, Strata Scythe, Land Tax,Trailblazer's Boots, Imprisoned in the Moon, Rogue's Passage, Wayfarer's Bauble, Solemn Simulacrum, Endless Atlas, Ichor Wellspring,Conqueror's Flail, Hammer of Nazahn, Loxodon Warhammer, the Kaldra cycle could be fun: Helm of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, Fireshrieker, Mycosynth Wellspring, maybe Bloodforged Battleaxe, Knight of the White Orchid, O-Naginata, and Silverblade Paladin.

There’s plenty more than what I have thought of like the sword cycle obviously, but some equipment can be quite pricey as I’m sure you already know. Here’s a good resource to check for ideas:

JujuleBarbu on How to Lose Friends and Infuriate People.. for $99

One more thing ! Pilgrim's Eye or Mycosynth Wellspring could get a great synergy in this deck Expedition Map is good for the gates or the end of maze too. Here's some useful ramp cards : Caravan Vigil Evolution Charm Sylvan Scrying etc.
