Sandstone Oracle Discussion

Arch of Orazca is a low cost addition that eventually gives you a draw engine tacked onto a land.

Sandstone Oracle is another way to draw cards.

You have a lot of utility lands that sacrifice to do things. Crucible of Worlds gives repeated access to those lands/effects. Crucible combines with Inventors' Fair to make a mana intensive but powerful engine where you get to tutor for an artifact every turn. If you do decide to add Crucible then I would also recommend Haven of the Spirit Dragon. It only gets back Ugin and Steel Hellkite, but Crucible of Worlds + Haven of the Spirit Dragon + Ugin, the Spirit Dragon gives you infinite access to Ugin as long as Crucible is in play.

Homeward Path isn't always great, but it gives you a silver bullet answer to Bribery style Blue decks that want to steal your creatures, Zealous Conscripts type Red strategies, and Black decks that reanimate your scary Eldrazi. The games that Homeward Path is good, it's great. Cards like Insurrection and Rise of the Dark Realms are common and powerful finishers in Commander.

Command Beacon seems great after Ulamog has died a couple of times. Exile effects a prevalent enough in Commander that people will probably find ways to remove your Commander from the table a few times. It also works with Crucible of Worlds to keep Ulamog's casting cost at an effective 10 no matter what.

Expedition Map helps you find the utility land that is best for your given situation. Opposing Gaea's Cradle on the table? Strip Mine. Somebody just cast Bribery? Homeward Path. Early game development? Eldrazi Temple to ramp. Late game engine? Eye of Ugin.

Pia's Revolution OUT, Sandstone Oracle IN - Revolution does not work well in multiplayer, and Oracle is repeatable card draw which is huge in monored.

Okay. it seems like I need a lot more draw, so I'm going to move in the direction of permanents that draw cards, because they work better with malfegor. I'm also getting rid of a bunch more discard spells, and a couple draw cards that I think could be better.

To that end, I'm taking out: Sandstone Oracle, Skeletal Scrying, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Loreseeker's Stone, Promise of Power, Skull Rend, Disciple of Bolas, and Syphon Mind.

I'm putting in, Skullclamp, Arguel's Blood Fast, Thorn of the Black Rose, Crown-Hunter Hireling, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Marchesa's Decree, and Corpse Augur.

I'm also taking out Crypt Incursion and Mountain for Rakdos Charm and Throne of the High City.

As is usually the case with mono-red, I need more draw.

Adding Diviner's Wand and Sandstone Oracle.

I found myself with the ability to generate 48 mana in a game last night but I had nothing to spend it on!

RingoDingo92 Sandstone Oracle replaced Tormenting Voice in my list and never looked back. If I weld it back and draw at least 2 cards off it it's better. The fact we find ourself at or near being hellbent alot its great. In play testing I pulled off a turn 3 win with him dumping hand through metal worker and restocking to draw into staff. So far he's been great.

Masticore is an interesting idea. You'll have to let me know what you think of him! Sandstone Oracle is another card in your deck that intrigues me. I could see that being pretty powerful.

Earthquake and fault line are both traps, they look good on paper, but at the end of the day, playing this you'll likely not be the highest life total, so they end up doing nothing but putting you closer to death. better cards to spend mama on are Sandstone Oracle and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, big creatures to fallback on, comes with a new huge grip of cards.
