Roon of the Hidden Realm Discussion

Thanks for the help! Awesome, great to have someone from the outside to look at the deck, I get personally attached to some cards and don't see that they shouldn't be in the deck.

I just started building more than my first EDH deck Breya so if you're up for it I will definitely get back for more feedback. Gonna update that later on too.

Started building a (non-inf-combo) deck with Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, but I like blinking stuff, so maybe it will become a Roon of the Hidden Realm deck instead. But I like Derevi, and I want to make it a bit controlling. Is it stupid to not have one focus? If you have any tips, please let me know :)

And thanks again!

First of all, great deck-list and even better write-up. I agree that while Eerie Interlude and its counterparts can be good in the right situations, they are mediocre more often then not. Roon of the Hidden Realm was my first commander and I'm not an expert or pro or anything like that, but I found this to be a very helpful write-up to anyone looking for a unique opinion on the deck.

Yep, Signets are generally considered better in EDH than Cluestones. They only cost two instead of three and you almost never sac them for carddraw, bc it's just one card, it costs two mana to activate and you lose your ramp. It's good only in a situation where artifacts get boardwiped and your cluestone is untapped and you've got the mana open to activate the sac. That's why Commander's Sphere is a much better three drop ramp. In case of emergency, you can sac it no matter what.

I'm only considering cluestones in my mega-budget build with Roon of the Hidden Realm, so that a blinking Trophy Mage can find them all.

First off, I love this. Lore is so deep in magic and its always a joy to see someone else making it part of their game.

Secondly, I'm almost sure that Roon of the Hidden Realm is from Bant, given that he's a rhox soldier with what appear to be sigils.

Great list!

@Barsan Thanks for clearing that up, the rules on morph are a bit strange so I wasn't sure.

Wow, never even heard of Fractured Identity, Ill definitely try and find a spot for this. (It's so mean with Phage the Untouchable, I love it XD).
Roon of the Hidden Realm is a interesting one. He does provide a lot of useful utility, but I'm not sure if I have enough cards that work well with him to make him worth it. I'll definitely give him a try though.
Sundial of the Infinite is kinda in the same boat as Roon of the Hidden Realm (obviously it would work better if I included both of them). I do like how easily accessible it is, I think almost all my tutors can hit a two mana artifact.
I think I'll end up just cutting Voidslime. Thanks for the note on Disallow though.
I know Felidar Sovereign is cheesy in EDH, but the fact that my opponents always have to look out for it s partly why I use it.

Thanks again for all the great suggestions.

@Exxie97 He is confusing flipping and flickering. Flickered Creatures leave combat and have summoning sickness, Flipped creatures do not.

Roon of the Hidden Realm exists in your colors and can be used to unflip specific creatures after your opponents swing out, as a means of defense, or to repeat powerful ETB Triggers such as Ixidron and with Voidslime's stifle effect, or Sundial of the Infinite (Which can also prevent detrimental ETB effects) you can permanently exile creatures... even Commanders.

Phage the Untouchable in an Esper capable deck kind of begs for a Fractured Identity doesn't it? Especially considering you run Eater of Days.

Disallow is a strict mana cost improvement on Voidslime

I absolutely hate that Felidar Sovereign is allowed in EDH. At least a Phage Textwin is risky.

as for your Roon of the Hidden Realm, yes its ability resolves. i'm not sure why you would question that.

as for your second scenario, that is also mostly correct. the base p/t would be 1/1, but it'd still get the bonuses and be a 9/9, and the ability to destroy a permanent is an ability of the equipment, not the creature its equipping. otherwise it'd say "equipped creature gets "..." "
