Prismatic Lens Discussion

This deck is a solid budget deck. Your commander makes for each game working differently, and I applaud you for your budget mission. Definitely a +1 from me. I will be buying this deck and will give some feedback when I can.

My only suggestion I can think of would be to put in more ramp. Your average CMC is cripplingly high. Basic budget rocks like the signet cycle or Prismatic Lens and Star Compass are mainstays in my budget decks, and 3 colored decks need all of the help they can get.

Your creature package is good, but I have a soft spot for Ulamog's Crusher. It would be the best bomb to cheat in on a budget.

Sorry I can't offer anything else at this time. I seriously dig the deck though.

I am very displeased that neither Akroma's Memorial nor Rhystic Study were reprinted, since both of those cards very much need to be reprinted.

The new artwork on Vengeful Rebirth is nice; I see that Seb MicKinnon is taking inspiration from Rebecca Guay and/or Terese Nielsen in that image.

I really wish that I had waited to purchase a Lord of Extinction for my Mimeoplasm EDH deck until it was reprinted in this set, as doing so would have saved me a great amount of money, but I made that purchase months before this set was even announced, so there was no way that I could have known about it.

The reprint of Reviving Vapors is very nice, and I may purchase a copy if I ever build a white/blue EDH deck.

Prismatic Lens is rather useless; Prophetic Prism would have been vastly better.

It is good to see Anger and Brawn reprinted, but why were the other incarnations in that cycle not reprinted? That is especially glaring considering that Filth and Valor have never been reprinted.

Most of the lands were great, but did the game really need another reprint of Terramorphic Expanse? Also, Rogue's Passage and Thespian's Stage were great, but those spaces could have been used for lands that need reprints much more severely, such as Reflecting Pool, Meteor Crater, or Vesuva.

In conclusion, I shall purchase some cards from this set, but not too many, and I certainly shall not purchase any boost packs or booster boxes. This set did have some nice cards, but I feel that it overall was slightly underwhelming for it being the final masters set for the foreseeable future, so I hope that whatever WotC has planned for reprint sets in the future is a worthwhile replacement.

Hey! You might want to cut Fellwar Stone and Night's Whisper due to money reasons. Maybe add Ancient Craving and either Prismatic Lens or Dreamstone Hedron to replace them?

I agree, Scrap Trawler is definitely a candidate for inclusion.

As for the red rituals, I know I had tested at least Rite of Flame in the past, but don't remember why it didn't end up in the final version. If they were included, the self-mill into Past in Flames + Rituals + Scrap Mastery line would require to start, but without those cards it requires . I don't know if a 25% reduction is worth two card slots, but it's definitely possible. The most important things to consider are maintaining sufficient artifact density and card draw. If I had to pick cards to cut today, I'd probably look at removing the haste enablers (Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves).

Unfortunately, my cEDH playgroup has long since disbanded, and I no longer play the format. I've disassembled this deck, and sold many of its components. As a result, it's not possible for me to test the changes myself, but I encourage you to do so if you have the desire.


Winning with Codex Shredder requires an infinite untap engine (see the 'Combos' section of the deck description). Once you have this, you can use its tap ability to mill your opponents' decks. It can be useful to have Tormod's Crypt available in order to deal with any instant-speed graveyard shenanigans or shuffle triggers (e.g. Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre)

Winning with Pyrite Spellbomb requires infinite red mana and infinite recursion. The mana can be generated either by combining an infinite untap engine with a colored mana rock (Mox Diamond, Mox Opal, Chrome Mox, Prismatic Lens, Fellwar Stone), or by combining infinite recursion with Lion's Eye Diamond or Lotus Petal. Infinite recursion is most simply accomplished by having Salvaging Station in play while looping Myr Retriever and Junk Diver. Other approaches include infinitely casting Scrap Mastery (returning it with Codex Shredder), or combining an infinite untap engine with Goblin Welder and either Myr Retriever or Junk Diver.

hoardofnotions and recapping back to your reasoning behind Prismatic Lens... Why not add some of the lands that can filter out mana??? Wouldn't those be harder to get rid of than the 2 drop artifact that Salvaging Station can't get back?

It looks like your Got your divers license? deck... But two cards I feel like could be replaced would be Prismatic Lens and Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage. Raff is okay since there is such an abundance amount of artifacts... but the lens just seems meh. Since you are focusing on the Summoning Station as a win-con maybe Renegade Map? It isn't instant, nor does it put it into the battlefield like Wayfarer's Bauble but it doesn't require more mana to be sunk into it either.
