Open the Vaults Discussion

Firebones675 on Mono-Red Artifact Sacrifice

Looks good! Scrap Trawler seems like the kind of card that would work really well in the deck since you're going to have so man artifacts going to the yard. Myr Retriever and Pia's Revolution might also work out here too as they also like artifacts being scarified.

It doesn't necessarily help with the artifact dying theme, but you have enough cheap artifacts to allow Galvanic Blast to do some work.

This isnt along the lines of what you're doing at the moment so feel free to ignore it but you might want to look at some Open the Vaults/Krark-Clan Ironworks lists. The basic idea was to keep sacraficing and bringing back everything which when combined with cards like Ichor Wellspring would draw through most of your deck and generate lots of mana (i can go into more detail about it if you want). Open the vaults is a bit of a slower card than the deck you have currently which looks like it wants to win more quickly but figured i'd mention it in case it's a direction you wanted to try out but again, don't feel obliged to do so if you don't want to.

Cranial Plating is out of your color identity. Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are not cards you want to play in Mono-W, for sure. Maybe consider a few auras like Hyena Umbra, Spirit Mantle, Spirit Loop as they are cheap and offer good options your equipments can't cover. Open the Vaults and Second Sunrise are good recovery tools.

Thank you all for the info. Glad to see my curses will still work the way I wish!

To be clear, my enchantment aura-curses coming back from the grave via Open the Vaults do not target a player (just enchant player), and therefor CAN be placed on hexproof players, correct?

Making a fun Mathas, Fiend Seeker deck full of curses. If I cast Open the Vaults with curses in my graveyard, will I be able to reapply them to my opponents like I want? Or will they be attached to me?

The card specifically states: "to the battlefield UNDER THEIR OWNER'S CONTROL."

In the rulings it states: "If an Aura can be returned to the battlefield with Open the Vaults, it must be, EVEN IF ITS OWNER DOESN'T LIKE WHAT IT WOULD ENCHANT."

So if I have Curse of Bloodletting in my graveyard, and I cast Open the Vaults, what would happen?

(Side question, do enchantment creatures count as enchantments?)

escesare on Solemnity

How has Thing in the Ice  Flip performed for you? It seems very underpowered to me: You can't play as early blocker or you'll never flip it, so you must hold TiTi and a cantrip (otherwise opponent has all the time in the world to kill a 0/4) until you get Solemnity. This locks down two cards in hand (let's call it a 2.5-card-combo) for an ultimate payoff of big creature + "board wipe" (i.e. you get a Tarmogoyf + "Wrath of God").

With only 10 enchantments, Sphere of Safety will tax 2.8 average, making it a slightly better Ghostly Prison costing more. Plus if you switched to Prison, Drift of Phantasms becomes (almost) strictly better than Idyllic Tutor, fetching Kitchen Finks and Blasting Station for infinite damage.

And mainboard Open the Vaults? Even assuming a deck discarded/destroyed every single enchantment you draw (i.e. no top Modern deck ever), that's just two average. I still wouldn't play Vaults if it always gave me two.

multimedia on Atraxa Enchantress EDH

Hey, Enchantress deck with no Enchantresses ;)? This is Atraxa enchantment Voltron not Enchantress.

The Enchantress strategy is based on drawing cards by playing enchantments. This is a fine strategy with Atraxa because as a Voltron Commander playing enchantments is not only making her very scary, but also drawing you cards. Voltron means loading her up with enchantments.

These are the Enchantresses:


If you would like further help I'm happy to help,

Good luck with your deck.

Might I suggest Sigarda, Host of Herons to protect against being forced to sacrifice your commander. There's also Open the Vaults to get back key cards you've lost, and you might want to consider some extra turn cards as a nasty surprise, such as Expropriate?
