Prismatic Geoscope Discussion
1 month ago
Thank you for all of your suggestions.
Let me explain why I run some of the cards you consider cutting (Even though you're probably right and I will probably try it like you made it) The main reason why I am playing so many tapped fetches and tapped lands is to make the deck slower intentionally. It makes my opponents in my play group see me as "less of a threat". I don't mind playing slower so my end game can be more explosive. I was also playing these slow fetches and dual lands to have more mana with Prismatic Geoscope though I believe that you already saw irdue to the fact that you would consider cutting it. I usually fetch two basics when I know I don't need the duals for now making me able to fetch check duals and have them enter untapped.
I play Chromium, the Mutable because my meta has some heavy counter/control decks out there, so it helps to have him sometimes.
Regarding tutors like Eladamri's Call I tend to not run many, if not any tutor, in my decks. Maybe I'm not smart, but I like to play the top for my deck. Luck of the draw I guess. I do understand why you would want to tutor some of those dragons though.
I do need to ask why you would cut Zendikar Resurgent though. It seems great in my opinion, more mana to cast my big creatures and card draw on the top of that sounds great. I might be wrong thought.
All of your other suggestion are fair and I see why you would make the changes. I will try the deck with your changes on some nondescript application. If you have anything else for the deck, I would love to hear it!

Sorry for taking a bit to respond. Thanks for the words of praise, this deck is my favorite and i'm glad other folks have a positive opinion of the build. In terms of budget, I can definitely understand that some cards seem just pointlessly expensive. Here are some suggestions i'd offer for each of the previously mentioned cards:
- Mana Drain : This one's a bit tricky, as there aren't many counters that offer ramp as well. This is entirely dependent on your meta, but if you're playing in a more casual group you could use: Plasm Capture , Arcane Denial , Mana Leak , or Split Decision . If you're going for something more competitive that'd narrow the list to maybe Force of Negation . I'm sorry if that last one was a bit pricey.
- Wheel of Fortune : Windfall . Unless you want to stick to red, then i'd go with Reforge the Soul .
- Mox Diamond : There are a number of different directions you could go with here - i'd likely pick one of the Talismans printed in Modern Horizons or Mirrodin. Additionally, there are alternative "Balanced" Moxes like Mox Tantalite or Mox Opal that are affordable.
- Mana Crypt : The first thing that came to mind was Prismatic Geoscope - even though they don't exactly compare 1 for 1. Other than that I can't think of any alternate mana rocks that would really fit in this slot.
Onward to the alternatives:
- Green Sun's Zenith : A solid inclusion for a tutor. A possible alternative would be Finale of Devastation as this can also tutor your graveyard and pump your board for an alternate wincon.
- Worldly Tutor : If you aren't running The First Sliver then I'd suggest you leave this one out. Just run Eladamri's Call .
- Armageddon :Excellent soft lock card for the "alternate win" strategy using a Mana Dork . A solid inclusion.
I think you have some great card choices there. Leave a link to your deck so I can give it some Chitinous Blessings. Thanks for commenting on the page!

Great idea! One thing I would say is to change Prismatic Geoscope for something else. You've only got 8 basics in the whole deck so the chances of that tapping for any meaningful amount of mana is unlikely, especially without any way that I noticed for searching for basics. Commander's Sphere or Darksteel Ingot would be good includes.

Wow really nobody responded to this thread when i was on holiday! that is suprising Giving serious amounts of judement to strangers. maybe make a new thread and forum post when you make your next set of changes maybe the large amount of messages is off putting to weaker people :P
Here are my two pence on each of your questions i will reply later in the week about more cuts and wraths :)
What other Walkers from War of the Spark should be chopped?
In General i do not think WAR plansewalkers are great for super friends due to the lack of up-ticking abilities the ones you have seem a great fit though! the only ones lacking an up-tick are ashock, narset and saheeli. Ashock and narset are great FU cards to other EDH players and I believe fit nicely. Saheeli, Sublime Artificer i don't see as much of a reason behind.
I do not think you truly understand Gideon, Champion of Justice s power he exiles all other permanents including lands. It does not matter if they hate you they cant do anything :D
With the amount of fetches you currently have yes i would remove Crucible of Worlds if you were to ever put more in put it back in ( Ramunap Excavator works similarly)
I put in Sundial of the Infinite for End Step effects; allowing for stuff that should be gone EOT, to stay. Do you think this should be cut?
this does not work as well as you think as you still have a clear up stage with sundile. so yes I would remove it.
Is Chromatic Lantern really better than Prismatic Omen ? Then why do I have Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter for a huge amount of mana for every one +1/+1 Counter on a creature each (One each; no higher.)?
Its only better because it is a mana rock as well or if you are running bespoke effects like Prismatic Geoscope . either/both are good. you dont run enough creatures or counter synergy to run Jiang in my opinion.
What do you think is the better CMDR: Najeela, the Blade-Blossom , or Niv-Mizzet Reborn ? Both already seem really badass on their own.
Najela can be a win con on her own but niv is an independant draw engine , personaly for this deck i would run Niv however both work.
Flux Channeler , Evolution Sage (Combine her w/ Crucible of Worlds .), even Ignite the Beacon seem really good here; but what are your thoughts on them?
Dependons on how many tutors you want, ignite the becon is great especially at instant speed! both others are great as well as you will notmally have non creature spells or lands to play.
I didn't think Dream Halls is good here. Your thoughts on this? It seems to be a staple here in Niv-Mizzet Reborn , but what about Najeela, the Blade-Blossom ? I'd like to
yes i do not think it is great in this deck due to it super charging your opponents as well
Also, SP3CTR3_chelts, I still need some alts for Aminatou, the Fateshifter in the situation I don't have enough Blink/Flicker in play. Do you think Ashiok, Dream Render sucks as well?
I'm looking into flicker affects but your choices are not numerous. I always like to run at least one peice of GY hate in each deck so he fits but if you are short on spaces remove him.
Rowan Kenrith is da bomb doubling all planes walker affects are huge!!!! as they are activated abilities.
Ill have a look at some more wraths and cards to cut soon but i am running out of time :)

With nobody able to help w/ this deck (Even though the fighting game series of the same name is so great), I really wanted to know what I can do to make this deck great, while faithful to the original source. Here's what I want from this:
- Creatures representing the characters of the verse.
- Lands representing the many areas of the verse
- Reasons why X (X = Card in Question.) is faithful to the original source; & also good.
- Why you think X is a good fit, even if it means sacrificing art for good effects
- Other things that are part of UNIB lore representing the other things (I'll get to it.)
- Even amounts of all 5 mana colors
- Having others help w/ some degree of knowledge of UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH.
I hope this helps, as I already have several things noted:
Merkava = Fathom Feeder (Voids consume w/o reason, & this Eldrazi has Ingest; & Deathtouch, which fits the bill the most about Merkava; a Void whose transformation is incomplete. That, & says Despair more than other color identities.
Ash Barrens = Abandoned Building (朽ち荒れた廃墟) (Welp, something happened to both things, so it fits.)
Mana Confluence or Cascading Cataracts = Abyss (The center of the Hollow Night; filled with Infinite EXS. Both of these are considered like the power of an Abyss; but only one can truly be forcefully Destroyed.)
Hinterland Harbor = Riverside Esplanade (川沿いの遊歩道) (Well, both have some body of Water in the Background, & are both Harbors.)
Isolated Chapel = Cathedral of Far East (極東の大聖堂) (Both have quite some religious quality to them.)
Prismatic Geoscope = The Ruby of Nothingness (虚無なる紅玉) (Both Rocks contain energy of its most powerful; although I dun think Geoscope would fit this...)
And... That's it. If anyone can help me w/ just the cards alone, that would be great as I'm using terminology for all this (I'll finish this later; let's see what we can find for now...). Thanks again for helping in advance... :)
