Spires of Orazca Discussion

Neotrup on If mirage mirror becomes a ...

2 weeks ago

Probably not, but stranger things have happened. If you make Mirage Mirror a copy of Homura, Human Ascendant it will be easier to flip. Mirage Mirror can never transform. If it becomes a copy of something like Thaumatic Compass  Flip and an ability instructs it to transform, that portion of the instruction will be ignored. If it becomes a copy of something like Conqueror's Galleon  Flip and an ability instructs it to be returned to the battlefield transformed, it will remain in whatever zone it's currently in instead. It can, however, copy a Spires of Orazca assuming one is on the battlefield, and cannot copy a Thaumatic Compass  Flip if only Spires of Orazca is on the battlefield.

Neotrup on Does Defang prevent the General's ...

No. A commander has to deal damage in order for it to count as commander damage. An important note is that the damage doesn't have to cause loss of life, so effects like Platinum Emperion, Worship, or Glistening Oil won't stop it from being commander damage, but things like Defang, Fog, or Spires of Orazca will.

ThallionDarkshine on Tana and Akiri's Artifact Funhouse

This deck looks pretty sweet, and I like the idea of buffing two commanders at once with all of your equipments, but in my opinion there are a bunch of cards that are simply out of place in this particular list.

Misplaced Cards

First, all the 0-cost equipments are great in something like Sram, where they all cycle with your commander on the field. However, giving something +0/+3 and vigilance isn't really impactful enough to run, even with it giving Akiri +1/+0.

Second, all of the equipments that slowly give the creature +1/+1 counters over time are too slow in my opinion. Voltron decks are effective because they pressure opponents very quickly, giving them only a small window to deal with your commander before they die. In addition, Ring of Kalonia and Ring of Thune don't really fit with your commanders, as both of the commanders that they give counters to already have the abilities they provide.

Next, there are a bunch of equipments that don't really fit with your commanders. Both Blade of Selves and Illusionist's Bracers don't do anything with just them on the field.

Finally, you have several artifact-support cards that in my opinion are fairly low impact. Golem's Heart and Lifesmith take up a slot in your deck simply to gain you a few points of life here and there.

Card Suggestions

I'm sorry if this analysis has been fairly destructive so far, but here's something more constructive with some great cards that should definitely be found in equipment-focused decks.

First, some equipments. For some great ramp that initially doubles as an equipment to buff Tana, Dowsing Dagger buffs up something and then flips into a gilded lotus on a land. Hammer of Nazahn protects one of your commanders from removal and also makes your first equips of all your equipments essentially free. Loxodon Warhammer is a source of trample and lifegain for equipment decks. This last one is more of a fun inclusion than anything, but Bloodforged Battle-Axe promises some hilarious shenanigans as you attempt to make as many axes as possible.

Next, there are some insanely powerful equipment support cards that would be great in this deck. You already are running Sram, but Puresteel Paladin is another copy of this effect with further upside by making your equip costs free. Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith is a great equipment tutor, and if you add his hammer, he should definitely join the party as well. Sun Titan is an incredibly strong piece of recursion, bringing back a lot of your equipments or support permanents.

Finally, with your intense focus on equipments, the deck is a bit lacking in removal. While most of this should be standard, you definitely want to include some sort of land destruction, since Maze of Ith or the new Spires of Orazca can really stop voltron decks in their tracks.

Hope this wasn't overly critical, and helps you improve the list!

Raphiezar on List of Bugs and Feature ...

To expand on what mtghambot said, Search for azcanta and Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin are separate cards, just like Legion's Landing//Adanto, the First Fort, Arguel's Blood Fast//Temple of Aclazotz, Dowsing Dagger //Lost Vale, Thaumatic Compass//Spires of Orazca. Cards like vance's blasting cannons , Conqueror's Galleon, primal amulet , and treasure map don't even have that, as the back sides aren't even in the database ("Spitfire Bastion", "Conqueror's Foothold", "Primal Wellspring", and "Treasure Cove" respectively.) The only one that works is Growing Rites of Itlimoc . Even when I type some of these cards names correctly, it still wont link the card's picture for me, which is also true with some of the non-transforming cards in Ixalan. Any fix for this that can be done as soon as possible would be appreciated.
