Gilbobaggins on Can mindlock orb be tapped?

8 months ago

If I have the Relic Barrier , Mindlock Orb and Maralen of the Mornsong on the battlefield. Can i tap my mindlock orb with relic barrier at the end of opponents turn allowing me to search my library before my draw step?

Mesmeric Orb and Basalt Monolith can let you fill your 'yard for Delirium by using the mana Monolith produces to just turn around and untap it over and over, and it would fit in your suite of stax artifacts quite well. Relic Barrier doesn't really seem to fit said suite, so I feel it would be a prime replacement.

Similarly, the tap/untap synergizes well with a lot of what you already have. That being said, something else to consider is Gaea's Blessing to add in a little bit of resilience and to allow you to regurgitate things back into your library by milling into it with Mesmeric Orb.

@ naturesnake420

I personally wouldn't run it in my Circu list as it does't help towards the win condition that I am going for. Discovery / Dispersal is a bit too weak for my liking, I rather use cards like Mission Briefing or Winds of Rebuke if I'm going that route as I can also use Isochron Scepter to copy it and reuse them.

Winter Orb + Relic Barrier are cool ways to go prison along with other effects like Static Orb and such, however it is an entirely different build your going for if planning to go towards that route. That is something akin towards a Prison Lantern Deck. I'm basing this one off of a Lantern Combo/Control. Hope that makes sense~

Oh for sure I see. Would you run Uba Mask in a Circu list? It seems like a powerful lock but also can undermine the draw go nature of the deck, although it is powerful with a Necropotence . Also what do you think about the new Discovery / Dispersal ? Also what are your thoughts on Winter Orb + Relic Barrier as a sort of weird mean prison combo.

Relic Barrier, Ring of Gix, Icy Manipulator are good for 1 sided Winter Orb and Storage Matrix. Ral Zarek is good with the Royals.

LeaPlath on oh it's a shame you cant untap any of your mana

3 years ago could cut the probes. Probe is played in 60 card decks because it turns them into 56 card decks. You could cut some of the win conditions and then expect to draw them by drawing the game out. You could cut meh cards like Aether and Relic Barrier as 1 is 5 mana for a 2/2 unblockable and the other doesn't actually hit that much in legacy.

Now I am curious to see what your deck looks like. I really like the idea of adding Relic Barrier to tap what ever is needed. Trophy Mage is great, I started with it in the deck but pulled it for the bird theme but I think I will add it back in.

Thank you for the suggestions, let me know if you add anything else
