Oracle's Vault Discussion

burferking on Demons and Whatnot

4 weeks ago

I like very much Bloodgift Demon, Oracle's Vault and Outpost Siege. Westvale Abbey  Flip is great, but you might need more than one. You can also add tutors to get this land easier with Expedition Map or the cheap (in $) Diabolic Tutor . Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and Abhorrent Overlord can get you lots of tokens especially if you have enough devotion to black in late-game. Maybe some ramp would help you, like Crypt Ghast or any creature that gives you mana like Palladium Myr... My suggestions are somewhat budget, but maybe not as budget as your current deck.

Harbynger on Itlimoc Ballista

So after making the changes, I feel myself sorely missing Oketra's Monument. The number of tokens helps a LOT in both the mana generation from Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun and having blockers I don't mind loosing. I also really miss the large body in the Majestic Myriarch. One other unforeseen issue is that Oracle's Vault will miss big time on Walking Ballista. As cool as the combo would be, I think if I'm going to stick with the ballista, I have to go with just normal card draw so that I don't permanently exile one of my own ballistas.

So the more I think about it, the more I like the idea of Naga Vitalist. One of the issues I had was not being able to produce blue mana on repeat like I could with green, and he would fix that.

Also, it appears that Oracle's Vault will absolutely combo with Paradox Engine. It counts as play for lands and cast for any non-land cards. I think the fact that I can do that means I can absolutely go all-in with the mana/ballista strat. I will make some changes and test it out!

I did have Hope Tender in here at one point, and I ended up removing it FOR Majestic Myriarch lol. I like having out a large creature to scare people away from attacking me, and with the River Hoopoe out, I can hit once or twice with a flying Majestic Myriarch before dropping a Walking Ballista for the win. That said, I will definitely try the deck out with a more "all-in" strategy with the mana ramp and searching for the ballista. With that in mind, I do like what you're proposing!

The only thing I'm not sure of is the Oracle's Vault's ability to trigger Paradox Engine. It specifies that you play it without paying costs, so I believe that won't count for casting to trigger the engine. The rulings on Gatherer talk about casting, so I may absolutely be wrong.

I would consider replacing Majestic Myriarch and Nissa, Genesis Mage with 4 Hope Tender, which will also untap your Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun (leaving you with 1 spare slot).

Oketra's Monument would then become Oracle's Vault, which can create a loop with Paradox Engine to look at the top card of your library and cast it without paying it's mana cost. Each card cast will untap all your non-lands and reboot your tap/untap cycle.

Nissa, Steward of Elements is a side-board must, but I would drop a Negate to play 2 Nissa, Vital Force (using the spare card slot). If you can get the emblem of Nissa, Vital Force, you could get a number of added card draws.

I might move River Hoopoe to the side-board to play a mana-dork like Naga Vitalist for more consistent mana, earlier in the game.

Murphy77 on Oracle's Paradox

Ok - Ok - Ok .... I was just playing around with the concept. In the limited number of test hands that I drew, I drew lands. This is not likely to be consistent. I have added lands and cards that allow me to dump lands in the grave. I still would like to try to develop the concept further and maybe even take the deck to a FNM.

The idea is still good - If you can combine Oracle's Vault with Paradox Engine, you should be able to draw and cast at will.

MagicalHacker on Mono red card advantage

1 month 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:

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. :)

soikindalikepandas on Ramos Cascade Flicker Storm +1/+1

2 months ago

I know it won't trigger cascade, but it will let me double up on Ramos triggers in the same turn.

Mind's Dilation and Oracle's Vault are exactly the type of cards I'm looking for!

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.
