Opaline Unicorn Discussion

Hey man, your Friendly Neighbourhood Deckbuilder here. as you requested ill be helping you with your lifegain deck today. some cards i would remove and reasons as to why.

Accursed Witch  Flip -for what she does (which is meh at best) she costs too much mana. too slow. Night Market Lookout bad card Opaline Unicorn way better mana rocks out there Xathrid Gorgon slow for what it wants to do. much better cards in these colours with the same cmc. Paradise Mantle dont really need it Final Reward way too expensive for what it does Pharika's Cure really weak for a hard 2B Tribute to Hunger giving your opponent a choice is most times bad. token decks exist. Unholy Hunger 5 cmc to kill one creature and a requirement to hit the incidental life gain? oof. Fate Forgotten my recommendations will render obsolete Fated Retribution better replacement recommended Visara the Dreadful Seer's Lantern meh Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip Shimmering Grotto you can stand to cut a land of two Swamp see above Vampire Envoy can do better Desecration Demon its fine but not necessary Reya Dawnbringer lets face it, great ability, but with 9 mana i hope youre doing more than waiting until your next turn for a big play... with 9 mana you wanna try to win games.

here is what i have for you my friend

Heliod's Intervention one of the better cards in white recently, this deck loves the options here. Felidar Sovereign win con Merciless Eviction probably the best boardwipe these colours can ask for Fumigate amazing wrath Suture Priest great at any point in the game Utter End fantastic removal at a fair cost Talisman of Hierarchy decent rock Gray Merchant of Asphodel life gain synonymous Erebos, God of the Dead too good not to run Vona, Butcher of Magan so much better than visara K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth best black card next to his dad Athreos, God of Passage incredibly good to keep wearing out your opponents. much better costed than reya Torment of Hailfire good game. Bolas's Citadel so beyond powerful when your life could be 300... Tainted Sigil very impressive when partnered with a big life drain spell (...if you havent already won) Bloodchief Ascension a game winner if not dealt with Test of Endurance win con Black Market gotta pump those x spells up!! Beacon of Immortality very cheeky with tainted remedy. dont use against me dawg.

You might consider Rending Vines since most PDH artifacts/enchantments are going to be cheap and it draws a card. Afterlife may be better removal than Blessed Light though it doesn't exile. Scuttlemutt is strictly better than Opaline Unicorn unless you like the art on Unicorn more.

Great deck. I love your description, thanks for all the work you put into that! I would suggest Scuttlemutt instead of Opaline Unicorn . One tap of scuttlemutt to make the attacking creature W or B can make that big threat harmless in the face of Animar.

Two more land recommendations: Khalni Garden , taking out one Forest, then Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree taking out any land.

Removing Opaline Unicorn for Oketra's Monument could be good for getting extra tokens. The deck already has a lot of mana generation, especially with the addition of cryptolith rite. Now, it will remove a nontoken creature from the deck, but it'll generate you more creatures.

BMHKain on What to add/cut for cEDH …

@Burg+1: I checked the deck out just to see if it even has enough in it to handle even Tier 3 Decks in cEDH. I'm truly sorry to say, I'd rather have Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger befriend Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur & Sheoldred, Whispering One , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur for Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger & Urabrask the Hidden , Sheoldred, Whispering One for Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger & Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Urabrask the Hidden for Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite & Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , & lastly, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite for Sheoldred, Whispering One & Urabrask the Hidden . Phyrexia has all 5 colors now. If they are stronger than Pre-Mending Era Phyrexians (Not counting Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , they need to set their differences aside, & use those differences as their better abilities. Case in point, The deck is just more casual than what I'm trying to aim for. Maybe Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is Tier 4; but that's not what I'm aiming to do. What I'm aiming for is to get more CMDRS to Tier 3 the least; & even your deck would shame its status on a tierlist that measures the very status of each CMDR in cEDH. I can't apologize enough, man. It's an effort; albeit not what I wanted to do...

...But since you have a deck that utilizes artifice; I've been working on 5 Strategies that have been known to prevail in cEDH; so I STILL have a use just for you; in spite of not knowing what cEDH is...

As I'm working on Combo 2/5, which allows the use of infinite Colored mana in only these colors: , , . I wanted to use a Artifact Mana Dork is opposed to your usual Rock, I had three kinds of ways for them to make mana: Pili-Pala , Opaline Unicorn (& her other Tap for mana variants.), & Prismite . Since I wanted some way to make infinite mana this way; w/o running out of gas. Sure, is what this deck wants, but I can't go infinite w/ Grand Architect (It is in .), but... Maybe there's another way... Those Kiki-Jiki combos... Not using Thornbite Staff , Maybe something like Opaline Unicorn + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + (One more thing...), is there a copier in that can copy either? I'm just interested now...

Well, during my tests for One mana of any color Artifact Dorks, Pili-Pala could only go so far w/ Clock of Omens before running out of gas. Tap Dorks like Opaline Unicorn did far worse; & the same went for Prismite as well, but Tap, or Untap; I can't think of any better ideas. Unless someone can make an infinite mana combo that's Boros Friendly, & involves a dork like Pili-Pala , Prismite , or any Artifact Dork that taps for mana. I'll still seeking ideas for this though...

Infinite Tests:

Test 1: Infinite Mana.

Cards used: Sol Ring , Opaline Unicorn or Prismite , & Clock of Omens

Test One: Twilight Sparkle is Promoted to Transcendence Beyond Dimensional Layers.

  1. Opaline Unicorn , Sol Ring , & Clock of Omens are in play. Activate Clock. Tap Clock & Ring. Untap Sol Ring . Tap Opaline Unicorn for mana.

  2. Progress resets. Clock of Omens is tapped, & Sol Ring is untapped. Can't do any further activations as there is not enough untapped targets.

Result: Expelling from all form of education.

This also rules out Alloy Myr , & Scuttlemutt .

Test Two: Unity is not enough unless Odds can help the Evens is oppose to hurting them; hard.

  1. Prismite , Sol Ring , & Clock of Omens are in play. Clock activates. Tap Prismite , & Clock of Omens . Clock of Omens untaps. Sol Ring taps to allow Prismite one Mana.

  2. Progress resets. Clock of Omens can't use its ability as the last of the 3 card combo.

Result: REKT

Rebooting...

As it turned out; Prismite may be the best choice we have. It's Pauper friendly, & I'd like an infinite Colored Mana combo outside of Treasure Makers like Wily Goblin . I already might have a way, but I'd like something besides Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth . If that works, we have a new resident Mana Dork in strict officialness.

Reboot Complete.

Further inquiries as to why should they be enemies should be sent to a superior.

(Crashes.)

Now I just want an infinite Pauper Mana Combo w/ either Prismite , Opaline Unicorn , or that daned Pili-Pala ...

I'll zip it from here. Sorry for yet another Wall of Text...
