Roon of the Hidden Realm Discussion

SideBae on Derevi Fat Stax

Right off the bat, you should strongly consider Smothering Tithe to run alongside your Stasis . Each turn cycle, all three of your opponents have to pay to cut you off one blue, meaning Stasis is very likely to stay put.

Second, instead of running Bident of Thassa , you should consider running a Green Sun's Zenith to fetch your Edric, Spymaster of Trest . This gives you the redundancy that two of the 'hit OP draw' effect while allowing you to fetch other things with GSZ, including a Dryad Arbor turn 1, if you choose to run that, or Reclamation Sage to take out a pesky artifact/enchantment.

Similarly, I always feel weird running signets or Commander's Sphere in a green deck. If you have access to green, you have access to dorks (which are way better than signets). Avacyn's Pilgrim , Fyndhorn Elves , Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch are all REALLY powerful. Priest of Titania and Bloom Tender are both two-drops that make enough mana to be busted as well. Similarly, I don't think Solemn Simulacrum is ideal in this deck. If you cut the artifact ramp for dork ramp, you can run Kataki, War's Wage or Energy Flux to great effect. Also, Stony Silence becomes just... real good.

Suppression Field is also an excellent card. You aren't running fetches, which is fine, but decks that DO run fetches despise Suppression Field -- AND it hoses 'walkers, which you run 0 of.

Playing lock pieces, you're going to draw a lot of counter magic. I advise Dispel as an efficient piece of counter-counter magic, as well as Flusterstorm if possible. In the vein of counter magic, I don't think Hinder is very good. If you're afraid of an opponent just getting value out of the spell in the graveyard, Void Shatter ensures that your opponent doesn't just tutor it back later.

I think Supreme Verdict is better than Wrath of God , if only because it dodges counter magic. You probably don't want to run two wrath effects (because you're a go-wide creature deck), so I advise just replacing wrath with the verdict.

Tutor-wise, Mystical Tutor and Enlightened Tutor would be great for this deck. Mystical can get any instant or sorcery you need, be it wrath or ramp, while enlightened can find you lock pieces fast. I highly suggest them both.

Brainstorm , Ponder and Preordain are all excellent cards that make a borderline hand into a good hand. I think all blue decks should run these Xerox pieces, as they find lands and/or important spells at a very low cost.

Depending on how prevalent blue is in your meta, consider Carpet of Flowers . It is a REALLY good card.

I'd replace Cultivate and Kodama's Reach with Nature's Lore and Farseek , and Explosive Vegetation with Skyshroud Claim . The suggested cards to not require the 'Basic' supertype, meaning they can grab your duals without a problem. Also, Nature's Lore and Skyshroud Claim allow for your lands to enter untapped, reducing their net mana cost.

I advise running Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth . With Derevi triggers targeting the enchanted land, these produce extra mana. Also, if you run Arbor Elf , they make it tap for extra mana as well. Notably, the sprawl can only target a forest. This isn't really a problem, as I think you should try to make your land base lean green anyways. Early in a game, you want to ramp first, which requires green and then enables you to find your other colors.

Grasp of Fate is probably better than Return to Dust . It has a wider range of targets, and tends to hit more permanents for less mana.

I think people tend to underestimate the power of soft-counters in EDH games. In the late game, when players have ramped their entire decks out, they do tend to be somewhat useless. However, early interaction is invaluable. I recommend at least trying Spell Pierce in a few games, as this can counter an early Sol Ring and make all the difference.

Speaking of odd EDH counterspells, Mental Misstep is another tremendously undervalued card. If your meta is fast, it can be a complete game changer; if your meta is slow, it is indeed useless. That's a meta call, but I put it out there because I've had great success with it.

Mystic Remora is a good way to draw cards if it comes down turn 2 or 3. You should consider running it.

I would suggest running Sower of Temptation over Keiga, the Tide Star . It is vulnerable to removal, but gaining control of a creature and impacting the board right away is worth it, at least in my opinion. Similarly, if you want to lay down some real cash, Gilded Drake is a good option.

You should at least consider running Thalia, Guardian of Thraben . With dorks and the untap abilities from your general, you're likely to have more mana than your opponents, making her ability more and more one-sided.

I think Reflecting Pool is probably better than Meteor Crater . You might also consider running City of Brass and Mana Confluence , as I've had good success with these in 3-color decks. Exotic Orchard and Forbidden Orchard are also considerations for mana fixing.

Mother of Runes is a D&T staple you might want to consider. She's very good for protecting your creatures, although she is a nonbo with the aforementioned Suppression Field .

I feel that Mulldrifter is included because it can be flickered with Roon of the Hidden Realm and Brago, King Eternal . Seeing as the blink effects aren't in the command zone, I think just running Fact or Fiction and/or Dig Through Time would be better, as they are instants and let you leave up counter magic. Treasure Cruise is good too, although this is a sorcery. Chart a Course , Slate of Ancestry and Shamanic Revelation are also good cards for this deck.

You may wish to consider Howling Mine . It will always draw you a card on your draw step, as the untap step comes first. However, if you tap it down with your general's ability, the effect becomes asymmetric.

Good luck with deck building!

Qolorful on Help me finish my Roon ...

My Roon of the hidden realms list is meant to be able to play as a fairly casual deck if I choose, but also face-meltingly oppressive if I want as well. By that I mean I want a lot of cards that I can abuse with my Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake combo, but that are also good if I choose not to set it up. I have Eldrazi Displacer to abuse all the mana that can make me, and I have a couple of ways to find the creatures I need for said combo. I just need to decide what the best effects are to use along side it. Woodfall Primus , Terastodon , and Azor, the Lawbringer are cards I'd like to abuse. I just don't know what to take out or if I'm forgetting any other bombs.

I'm planning on updating my Roon of the Hidden Realm deck I was wondering if I should add manafest cards because I asked how blinking manafest cards work letting you keep the card under it would it be a good idea?

Hey There, First to your petcard I think something like Brago, King Eternal or Roon of the Hidden Realm would be a better home for it so that you can at tleast blink the the creature something bad to try again. To cards in The maybeboard frozen aether is not really necessary if you are already in white,natural home of this effect, Blind Obedience costs 2 less and hast an additional effect (doesn't break the color rule because The abillity extort is explained). Explosive Vegetation you have all shocks in your colorcombination so I think Skyshroud Claim would just be better. So if you want to invest a little, Sylvan Library would be great for you,also a card that you easily use in every green that you build after this one,also it combos greatly with Abundance

The interaction in question is Murkfiend Liege and Roon of the Hidden Realm . The question is, does murkfiend’s untap ability apply to Roon even though it only mentions two of the colors in Roon’s color scheme and not all three?

On a side note would this apply to spells with protection from one color when the card in question is multicolored? Like for instance I have protection from red and a green and red creature attacks me. Would I still have protection from it?

If I were to use Roon of the Hidden Realm to flicker a creature(exile it and bring it back at end step) with an enchantment equipped to the creature being flickered, would the enchantment be sent to the grave since it’s considered a new creature or does the enchantment flicker with it?

With Archon of Valor's Reach ’s effect of naming a card type and preventing it from being cast, does it only last while archon is in play or does this effect last the rest of the game? And if I say flickered it with Roon of the Hidden Realm would you be able to prevent multiple things from being cast? Would this effect stack or would you only be able to prevent one thing? The text on archon is a little vague. The oracle didn’t say much.

Boros charm would be good, unfortunately I’m trying to throw it in a Roon of the Hidden Realm deck. I have eerie interlude in the decklist, good suggestion! Lol
