Sphere of Resistance Discussion

StopShot on Dark Phoenix, Who Frowns At Fun

I think Prototype Portal would be pretty busted for this deck. You could have it produce artifact lands or Sol Rings for nothing, make it a draw/burn engine with Pyrite Spellbomb, piss off your opponents with multiple Tangle Wire, or dump Sphere of Resistance after Sphere of Resistance making everything unplayable since the sphere's don't increase the cost of the activated ability and win through Ghirapur AEther Grid or your opponent's decking themselves by having a smaller library than yours. Even signets are fair game since it would be two mana to dump a colorless instant-speed Rampant Growth. The artifact spam will also make smokestacks work more disgustingly to your advantage as well as the aforementioned Ghirapur AEther Grid.

Deck looks absolutely solid for a first draft. However, there are a few changed I would consider (depending on budget):

1) Diabolic Intent over Diabolic Tutor.

2) Beast Within over Golgari Charm

3) It depends on meta, but I feel that Vulturous Zombie may be underwhelming here.

4) Trinisphere, Sphere of Resistance, and Static Orb are good stax cards you're missing.

5) Mindslicer.

6) Bone Splinters is cute, but sorcery speed makes this not very playable.

7) I am not a fan of Animist's Awakening here.

Happy deckbuilding!

Whatever you think is worth getting 9 mana and two planeswalkers in turn 2 wyatt0781, haha

Yesterday I had an absolutely sick start:
Turn 1: Inventors' Fair, Chrome Mox (imprint Pendrell Mists, Grim Monolith, Voltaic Key, untap Monolith.
Turn 2: Gemstone Mine, Mox Opal, 5 mana from Monolith/Key + from mox and Mine for Nissa, Vital Force, untap Gemstone Mine and play Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas.
Turn 3: Sphere of Resistance, Power Conduit
Turn 4: Armageddon, game over!

Would you rather donate a part of your liver or half of your lungs?

I'm also not a fan of the bottled cloister trick...I have thought about using it in commander multiple times but eventually I always felt it was too risky. Someone removes the cloister in their turn and your hand is gone. Not very cool.

I would consider Sphere of Resistance and Thorn of Amethyst over Defense Grid, because you aim at having a huge lot of mana with tron and the posts anyway. Lodestone Golem is great too if you play mostly artifacts AND it beats for 5 dmg while slowing down the opponent.

Wurmcoil Engine and Sundering Titan are definitely better than the big beaters you are using at the moment.

Sphere of Resistance isn't modern legal. Maybe go Thorn of Amethyst?

Izu_Korasu on Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker & Silas ...

i recently built pure silas renn, but have considered adding ishai to add the white color identity to the deck for cards like Thopter Foundry.

if you plan on doing a true esper build, Ravos, Soultender allows you to reuse both your (artifact) creatures and artifacts, while making them a all a bit stronger, which works well with the voltron themed cards with strong etb's like Stoneforge Mystic/Trinket Mage/Trophy Mage.

silas/ishai feels like more of a control/lockdown/stax type deck, as silas lets you reuse things like Mindslaver and Magister Sphinx while ishai feels like a lite version of Grand Arbiter Augustin IV that pairs well with Sphere of Resistance ect.
