Serum Powder

Artifact

Tap: Add (1) to your mana pool.

Any time you could mulligan and Serum Powder is in your hand, you may remove all the cards in your hand from the game, then draw that many cards. (You can do this in addition to taking mulligans.)

Serum Powder Discussion

Boza on Eldrazi Titan Transformers

Ineffable is extremely powerful. Serum Powder means that you can start the game with all three in play. On the other hand, having ingest on 12/12 eldrazi is inconsequential or a -15 loyalty ability on a planeswalker that starts at 2 and can only +1 is equally inconsecuential.

Overall, there are few ways to improve these cards. For one, make the creatures smaller and cost something like 4 mana, representing the fact they were just beaten and recovering.

Serum Powder , but honestly whats the point of casually playing vs this deck if you turn 1 combo or flop the rest of the game

JKRice The issue I see with Idyllic Tutor is the same one I saw with Ethereal Usher ; just too slow and clunky to warrant a spot. The main way you find Hive Mind game 1 is to mulligan till you have it utilizing the London Mulligan + Serum Powder .

I can see putting big mana creatures in the main, I am unsure as to what I would want to take out for them though. I have the ones I thought would be the best in the sideboard for matchups like UW Control or Jund where the combo can be countered or taken apart with a timely discard spell.

Oh, hey. I just remembered that Serum Powder exists.

You can get more consistent by using 4x Street Wraith , 4x Serum Powder , 1x Gitaxian Probe to have a better chance to draw your lose condition. Mishra's Bauble is good too, but it might slow down the combo too much. Edge of Autumn has potential, but you'd have to rework the manabase to support it.

WizardOfTheNorthernCoast on Eldrazi vs. Tron

SynergyBuild thanks for sharing! I've brewed a lot of red Eldrazis on my own but never got to anything satistfying. Didn't know there was an 'archetype' based on this idea!

I see them all using Serum Powder . Is it only to 'combo' with Eternal Scourge ? Is IYO this interaction absolutely necessary for the deck to work? Couldn't we replace Powder with Blood Moon or MB Abrade / Lightning Bolt ?

LukeEffe on Eldrazi vs. Tron

Hi everyone, I was thinking about the state of Eldrazi Tron right now. I'm often switch between regular Green Tron and E-Tron because I'm lacking the will and the money to buy the last two copy of Karn Liberated and the second copy of Ugin, the Spirit Dragon . When it comes to E-Tron I own the whole shell and I even add some spice of my own with equipments like Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Light and Shadow .

I'm not too informed about the current modern state and what is the E-tron placement. I really dislike the Serum Powder version and I'd like to know some opinions about this archetype that I prefer over traditional G-Tron.

Let's discuss.

If you need help with knowing how much/what ramp to use, you might want to check out https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/brewer-s-minute-ramp-math

I am not an expert in mono, but for you I recommend adding:

Mana Crypt pricey but spicey

Charcoal Diamond goes so well with Sol Ring

Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia - especially if you somehow get more proliferate

Extraplanar Lens

Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are good if you want double-down on sacrificing your own creatures.

Myriad Landscape can go in almost any edh deck

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is solid in any one- or two-colour deck

Lake of the Dead has a downside, but you won't care when you're using it (trust me)

Deserted Temple , Vesuva , Candelabra of Tawnos and Thespian's Stage to double-down on Cabal Coffers.

Petrified Field to protect valuable lands.

Expedition Map and/or Wayfarer's Bauble to tutor itfor all your powerful lands.

I'm not sure how I feel about Temple of the False God , but it is an EDH classic.

Other mono ramp

I ended up finding so many mono ramp cards I thought I might as well make a more full list.

Solemn Simulacrum is a good catch-all

Magus of the Coffers is slow, but might be worth it. Crypt Ghast is a better version.

Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls are good in any deck that sacrifices often

Nirkana Revenant is good in the right deck

Bog Witch is kind of weird, but has fringe uses

I haven't thought hard, but you might be able to do some flicker shenanigans with Priest of Gix

Priest of Yawgmoth and Soldevi Adnate work if you hate your own stuff

Leaden Myr , Hedron Crawler , Manakin , Scuttlemutt , Alloy Myr , Opaline Unicorn , Palladium Myr are usually worse than rocks, but maybe you want?

Worst case, an edh deck can always load up on rocks. These are some of the best ones for mono black

Sol Ring every edh deck should include this

Star Compass , Fellwar Stone , Fractured Powerstone , Mind Stone all fill similar voids

Thran Dynamo , Ur-Golem's Eye , Worn Powerstone , Gilded Lotus , Hedron Archive , Sisay's Ring

Pillar of Origins for tribal decks

Consider Pentad Prism , Kyren Toy , or Coalition Relic for proliferate

In most games, these do the same thing: Commander's Sphere , Cryptolith Fragment  Flip, Cultivator's Caravan , Darksteel Ingot , Hierophant's Chalice , Honor-Worn Shaku , Mana Prism , Manalith , Orazca Relic , Phyrexian Totem , Powerstone Shard , Pristine Talisman , Seer's Lantern , Serum Powder , Skull of Ramos , Sol Grail , Spectral Searchlight , Vessel of Endless Rest , Victory Chimes , and Chromatic Lantern

Thought Vessel if you fill your hand

Chrome Mox is usually worth the card disadvantage

Lotus Bloom , Mana Vault , Basalt Monolith , Grim Monolith , and Lotus Petal for explosive potential

Mox Amber if you usually have your commander/a legendary thing out

Mox Diamond if lands in your graveyard is a good thing

Mox Opal if you have 2+ extra artifacts

Black Market is good if you tend to sacrifice/kill a lot of creatures

Caged Sun , Doubling Cube , and Gauntlet of Power are fair if you want to reach that high mana

Liliana of the Dark Realms is nice with proliferate, and makes sure you don't miss land drops in the mid/late-game

Sword of the Animist is best with one-mana creatures, and if you attack often, but might be justified even if not

Jet Medallion and Heartless Summoning do a lot of work if you play many cards in a turn

Carnival of Souls is fun with some creature-based combos

These mostly work for combo/explosive turns

Bubbling Muck for explosive/combo turns

Dark Ritual for getting a turn 2 Crypt Ghast , etc.

Sacrifice and Culling the Weak for sacrificing. They go nicely with Songs of the Damned

Spoils of Evil for lategame combos

Rain of Filth must be used with caution

Crypt of Agadeem works, but only if you consistently have 4+ creatures in the graveyard

Phyrexian Tower eats your creatures

Cabal Coffers is a staple

It's porbably unnessecary, but if you end up with few basic swamps, consider Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to supplement your Cabal Coffers .

Cabal Stronghold is great if you can't afford many nonbasics, and might be good enough besides.
