Oracle's Vault Discussion
17 hours ago
Since I didn't get a direct answer, I am just going to infer that you want cards that cost at most 5 mana and cards that cost at most 8 dollars (you mentioned Staff of Nin and Mind's Eye which almost make it but don't).
Not knowing the rest of the deck and if you have lots of creatures in it (where Skullclamp and friends would be fantastic), here is a list I found of cards that should help after looking through MagicalHacker - List of All Draw Cards (Steady), my resource of all available efficient cards that let you repeatedly gain card advantage:
- Sunset Pyramid
- Bottled Cloister
- Oracle's Vault
- Seer's Sundial
- Tapestry of the Ages
- Thran Tome
- Illuminated Folio
- Moonring Mirror
- Treasure Map Flip
Take a look at that previously linked list to see exactly what can and can't work for you, and I'm sure that you'll find more than enough cards to do what you want. :)

I know it won't trigger cascade, but it will let me double up on Ramos triggers in the same turn.
I can't believe I didn't think of the hideaway mechanic. Mosswort Bridge is perfect! My lands tend to be where my decks lack the most.
Thanks for the help! If you have any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

Hey looks cool! Unfortunately i gotta be the bearer of bad news.... flicker effects won't trigger cascade on cascade creatures...or help Ramos much in any way here. If you want some more free spells to cast you can try Mind's Dilation, Oracle's Vault, Temporal Aperture, Mosswort Bridge. Maybe Kess, Dissident Mage for another value/recursion engine. Happy gathering :)

Anaba Ancestor seems really bad- it doesnt get any real benefit from your commander because you have to not attack with it to maintain its ability, or its just a 2 mana 1/1. Plus, on board +1/+1 just is not a very powerful effect, even if repeatable.
Similarly, Flurry of Horns seems underwhelming. You have to get up to 5 mana, and then you get two vanilla 2/3s. This is the top end of your curve, and still does very little for you. Anything that is five or more mana should be really powerful. Thus, the cards that I feel are too expensive for their effect are: Flurry of Horns, Master of Cruelties, Warchanter of Mogis, Behold the Beyond (what three cards would you tutor for after spending 7 mana? There really isnt any way to use this to help you win- it can be a lot of value, sure, but youre probably off with either straight up draw or cheaper tutors to get your draw), Minotaur Aggressor, and then replace Plague Wind with In Garruk's Wake, at least. It is almost strictly better.
This deck seems like it could make use of a Whip of Erebos, if only for the life gain. You have a lot of pain effects, and Whip of Erebos is a very powerful artifact with both utility and circumstantial advantage.
A lot of your card draw comes from one time sorceries or Costly Plunder. It feels like this deck could use some more repeatable card draw, like Greed or Erebos, God of the Dead, or even some of the red psuedo draw like Outpost Siege and Chandra, Torch of Defiance. You may also want Phyrexian Arena, but you dont get to choose whether to draw that card. Other good cards for card advantage: Commune with Lava, Oracle's Vault, Stromkirk Occultist, Chandra, Flamecaller (wheel), vance's blasting cannons , Arguel's Blood Fast, Conqueror's Galleon, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Tamiyo's Journal, and The Scorpion God.
Ok I g2g, but looks good! looking forward to playing this!

Oracle's Vault is on the list for its second ability, which classifies as being able to get free value without additional mana input.
The point behind containing only permanents is that these cards are powerful because you can continue to play your deck after playing these cards and they accrue value for you without requiring you to invest card resources or mana resources. You can continue with your gameplan as normal, but these cards just give you free value while you are. Non-permanents always do something and then go away, so while they can give you value, they don't give you free value, which is incredibly powerful.
Silent-Blade Oni is a fantastic card for this! I should also look at cards that can cast spells from opponent's hands, since in a multiplayer game, it's incredibly rare for all your opponents to be hellbent.
Thada Adel, Acquisitor requires you to then pay the mana cost of the card you get, which means that you have to choose between the value or continuing to pay the mana for the main gameplan.
Eternal Dominion does fit quite nicely with the list! I should take a look at the epic spells and see how many of them fit in the list!

I ran Oracle's Vault in my list for awhile I found it to be very clunky it combos well with paradox engine IF it surevives till 3 bricks but that's all I've found it usefull with. usually it just ends up exiling some things u may not be able to cast and getting removed... having to rely on top or the like to set up for it just seems like to much devotion to a lotto artifact. It was added to the list of cute things I cut. If you test it out let me know how you do. Everytime I used it I just felt like I was durdling but I may be missing somthing.

Nice! As you can see, I don't have Blightsteel Colossus here because this is already a combo deck as is and is assy enough without it, but I can't knock anybody rocking him. Damn, turn four, though, that's game more times than not, ha.
You know, it's a good question because I haven't ever reconsidered his place in the deck. Sad Robot is just such a solid multipurpose EDH chump champ that I often don't think twice about popping him into most of my decklists. He has always been in this deck as a matter of fact. But yeah, I don't know what I'd replace him with either to be honest. Perhaps if there was such a killer artifact creature to come out that I felt the need to find a slot, perhaps Sad Robot would get some consideration for subtraction then. But otherwise, I'm not really sure there's anything I'd rather have in the slot. One card that has the same CMC that I see in a lot of Daretti decks these days is Oracle's Vault, and I do happen to own one actually, but I haven't tried it out here and worry it would be too underwhelming. I mean, it's second ability is really cool, and I do like the card overall, but I worry it wouldn't perform up to snuff. I don't know, my creature count is about as low as I'd be willing to go already anyway, so even if I were to consider that card, I'd probably subtract a non-creature for it.

I actually own a colorless artifact deck IRL with Karn, Silver Golem as commander.
Akroma's Memorial is a disgusting card, giving all your creatures a bunch of various buffs.
