Prismatic Lens Discussion
3 days ago
I find Spire of Industry and Prismatic Lens odd choices for Daretti. What do you need any color of mana for? One card I can recommend is Combustible Gearhulk . It's great for card draw and sometimes big damage because of the decks high CMCs.

Temple of the False God for that sweet sweet colorless mana.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd do you have an address in continental US? I'd be willing to send you and of the 10 cent equivalents that are better. Wanna see my wares?
I think if you are so poor you can't find the 10 cents to replace them, it becomes a tax-deductible donation, so it won't cost me anything.
Seriously, why the banner?

"Yes, price. Rampant Growth is ~20 cents right now. Sure Gruul Signet , Golgari Signet , Simic Signet , Prismatic Lens , Llanowar Elves , Fractured Powerstone , Moss Diamond , Growth Spiral , Explore , Coiling Oracle , Broken Bond and tons more examples are equal to it or cheaper, but I am aware someone will bring it up."
I am very sorry all of the local game stores have had buyouts of the above, quoted cards. It is a real shame to know that you also aren't within the world that tcgplayer, card kingdom, or cfg will ship to. I'd recommend running an additional land to the decks that run the growth. Thank you for your response.
But seriously. No possible replacements?

Ramp, card draw, and fatties are the 3 cornerstones of EDH as a concept to many players. Rampant Growth , Rampant Growth is the symbol of one of these three cornerstones (I am sure you'll never guess which one).
I am here to tell you, despite what you may have been told. It is bad. Really bad, not even medium bad like Cultivate (Yes, I hate that too, outside of some specific lists like Tatyova, where it belongs to some extent).
Why? Well, to start, mana production. It doesn't give you mana immediately without Amulet of Vigor , unlike 2- mana manarock variants like the signet cycle ( Azorius Signet , Gruul Signet ), talisman cycle ( Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Progress ), Mind Stone , Prismatic Lens , Fellwar Stone , etc.
So? Many decks are mono-colored and can't use signets, or talismans, or have cards like Null Rod / Kataki, War's Wage , etc. or go up against them often. Rampant Growth gives a land. Well, Nature's Lore and Three Visits both give you an untapped land, they can hit Shocklands or Duals to get your colors better than Rampant Growth , and generally are pretty good.
None of these are great cards. Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Birds of Paradise , Elvish Mystic , Boreal Druid , etc. all do it for half the mana, a turn faster, and are in green. How is a 2 mana card better?
So, with all of this, is there any real reason to run the cancerous growth (see what I did there xD)?
Yes, price. Rampant Growth is ~20 cents right now. Sure Gruul Signet , Golgari Signet , Simic Signet , Prismatic Lens , Llanowar Elves , Fractured Powerstone , Moss Diamond , Growth Spiral , Explore , Coiling Oracle , Broken Bond and tons more examples are equal to it or cheaper, but I am aware someone will bring it up.
There are too many better cards for lands-matter decks to use it, and too many are cheaper, equally cheap, or better and worth the cost to claim they are the reason Rampant Growth should see play, etc.
Seriously. If you run this card, stop.

In terms of cEDH I think you probably want some tutors, you're in U/R so you can look for things like Fabricate , Inventors' Fair , Mystical Tutor , Tezzeret the Seeker , and Gamble are all very good and fairly inexpensive cards to buy. Keyrune , Cluestone , Eye , Spectral Searchlight , Prismatic Lens , and Pristine Talisman are pretty inefficient for ramp in cEDH. As another side note, since you are in a 2 color deck you more than likely don't need Chromatic Lantern as you shouldn't really have a problem getting your colors. I would also swap Shrine of the Forsaken Gods for Temple of the False God , the 2 mana is 2 lands less that you need so you'll see the benefits far earlier and I don't know that you'll have time to get to 7 lands in cEDH. Psychic Spiral and Elixir of Immortality are ok for shuffling graveyards but I think Day's Undoing , Time Reversal , and Commit / Memory are probably far better.
2 counter spells is ok, I might add in like 2 more in Counterspell and Swan Song . Flusterstorm is stronger than people think... You are storm countering so when you cast it is in the first place U for counter target instant/sorcery unless it's controller pays 2 and on top of that you can choose new targets, which means if there is multiple spells on the stack you can possibly counter more than 1 spell for your 1cmc counterspell. cEDH is a super powerful format, decks are tuned af and have responses to get around your responses. Careful when you go off :) you may also want some other interaction for opponents graveyards, artifacts, enchantments and creatures.
