When Sandstone Oracle enters the battlefield, choose an opponent. If that player has more cads in hand than you, draw cards equal to the difference.

Sandstone Oracle Discussion

wisegreenbean on Neheb wants the world to burn

2 weeks ago

Burnished Hart cuz you need some mana and your commander is a 5 drop.

Sandstone Oracle is good when you've blown through your hand, which can either mean you're doing well or doing badly. So nice versatility and a strong effect. And atm, I only see 4 pieces of real card advantage, plus a few wheels. Good, but you can stand to pack more.

Browbeat feels dodgy. I wasn't afraid of 5 damage, and I'm not afraid of netting you 2 mana.

Never underestimate Volcanic Offering.

You can afford to diversify your landbase, I'd suggest Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, High Market for what few steal effects you have + Feldon and Daretti, Scavenger Grounds, at least.

I see chaos warp as the only enchantment answer. Bare minimum you can afford to pack a Scour from Existence, you have the mana. That makes Spine of Ish Sah decent too. Artifact destruction also fairly light, I only count three and I'd at least suggest Vandalblast or Shattering Spree, or maybe with your mana, Shattering Pulse.

I was thinking about Fanatic of Mogis and how good that sort of ability this is in this sort of deck.

You also Might wanna consider some nice, expensive creatures to ramp into.

(I promise this is the last one)

Rzepkanut on Animar's Hydra Horde

Looks like a fun variation on a totally busted commander :) Got a few ideas.. I'm surprised you didn't include Rosheen Meanderer over something like Cultivate just because its a creature that can pump Animar. Not sure if you know about how Ancestral Statue goes infinite with Animar by self bouncing, that seems like an easy include. Vizier of the Menagerie should be amazing in this deck with so many creatures to cast off the top. Primal Vigor has potential to make your hydras much more formidable. Gruul Ragebeast could be great too. Colorless cards like Sandstone Oracle, Duplicant, and Artisan of Kozilek are in most Animar builds too. Happy Gathering!

Colorless-Ramp: Fellwar Stone, Basalt Monolith.

Colorless-Removal: Nevinyrral's Disk, Scour from Existence, Spine of Ish Sah

Colorless-Draw: Sandstone Oracle, Endbringer.

Colorless-Utility: Silent Arbiter.

R-Removal: Starstorm, Volcanic Offering, Blasphemous Act.

R-Recursion: Scrap Mastery.

I don't think most of the M13 Rings belong on this list.

Alkadron on Rakdos

Tainted Strike is a win more card, it's unnecessary.

If you have Rakdos out, casting Exsanguinate for 4 costs six mana. Just attacking with Rakdos is free, and gives you the mega discounts. Generally, it's easier to stop an Exsanguinate than it is to stop an attack phase. Exsanguinate is pretty unnecessary.

Erebos, God of the Dead is a solid suggestion. The other anti-life-gain is much too situational - really good against life-gain, dead cards against pretty much anything else.

Staff of Nin is not a good way to refill your hand. It's slow and doesn't get a Rioting discount. Try Knollspine Dragon or Sandstone Oracle instead. Fetch them with Rune-Scarred Demon.

Indulgent Tormentor and Master of Cruelties will probably disappoint you. I'd find other top-end beaters: Avatar of Slaughter, or more eldrazi titans, or the Myojins from Kamigawa.

Lastly: Keldon Firebombers wrecks everyone but you for cheap.

I've been Rioting for many years - he's my all-time favorite commander. Take a look: It's Riot Time.

Good luck!

magicevan11 on Feldon, For my Love

Hello. I've been playing Feldon for 2 years. Here is my list: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/feldon-v3/

I'll name some cards that you aren't running that I think are invaluable.
Keldon Firebombers, Sandstone Oracle, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Scrap Mastery, Goblin Matron,Spine of Ish Sah, Codex Shredder, Anger, Avalanche Riders, Solemn Simulacrum, Anvil of Bogardan, Wild Guess, and Cathartic Reunion.

Keldon Firebombers has been helpful against decks that ramp really hard with land. Sandstone Oracle is amazing against any refined deck. Pathrazer of Ulamog just wins the game (I've got him out on turn 4, GG). Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer is very helpful against decks with a lot of artifact removal. Scrap Mastery saves you after someone wipes the board of artifacts. Goblin Welder is found by Goblin Matron, which is insane since Welder is very powerful in a Feldon deck and especially in my list since I run Spine of Ish Sah. Spine of Ish Sah is easy to recur, get out quickly, and is unconditional removal. Codex Shredder basically is repeatable card draw in a feldon deck. Anger helps you play around instant speed removal (no more removal in response to greaves, you still get to activate feldon anyways). Avalanche Riders blows up annoying lands. Solemn Simulacrum ramps you up and draws cards (he's great after Keldon Firebombers ETB trigger). Anvil of Bogardan is a great way to get fatties in your yard. Wild Guess is a great and quick way to enable feldon. Ditto with Cathartic Reunion.

Alkadron on Rakdos Recursion

  • Step one: Refill your hand.

Sandstone Oracle, Knollspine Dragon, Combustible Gearhulk, Harvester of Souls, and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth are pretty good at putting cards into your hand. Rune-Scarred Demon Will fetch these cards for you if you need them.Sin Prodder and Chandra, Torch of Defiance can each start riots AND give you card advantage. They're pretty outstanding.

  • Step two: Recover.

Artisan of Kozilek will recur a big dude. Sheoldred, Whispering One will recur several.

  • Step three: prevent the board wipe.

Nullstone Gargoyle and Void Winnower shut most of them down. (The Winnower even shuts down Cyc Rift.) Not all of them, but they help out a lot. I maindeck Stromgald Cabal because Wrath of God is obnoxious and terrible. He also starts riots alright if you need him to. (Sometimes, all yo uneed to do is attack.)

Also: Your opponent can't board wipe if there's not a board wipe in their hand. Sire Of Insanity and Myojin of Night's Reach will get you there.

Also also: Your opponent can't board wipe if they can't afford the board wipe. Keldon Firebombers and Myojin of Infinite Rage will get you there.

  • Step four: Ignore the board wipe.

Darksteel Colossus is huge, doesn't care about Wrath of God, and is Free if you Riot hard enough. Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is all of that AND removal on a stick. The Myojins start out indestructible, and can stay that way if you want.

I've been Rioting for a while, and I feel your pain, my friend. Board wipes make me cry. Take a look, you might find something you like: It's Riot Time

Good luck!
