BMHKain on A Primordial God needs your ...

I had a really odd, but crazy idea for infinite . Obviously, Ashnod's Altar would be needed. But what else to use? I actually done something similar in my cEDH Boros Deck Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Phyrexian Altar + Village Bell-Ringer , but does Simic lack what Boros (OF ALL THINGS!) can do? I also am thinking of adding Staff of Domination also. Any ideas for this Primordial Mass of Constellation Form?

Soren841: In my heart, I believe it to be true that thinning is real, so I'd go as far as to say it's almost a myth? I'm most likely going to toss it in there, but I objectively see no reason why or why not lol.

Fellin22: I'm sorry, sir. I don't even know who you are or what I did to you and I'm sorry? Lmk please, so that I may rectify that mistake.

l13199l: Dryad Arbor is a godsend, from sac fodder to discard fodder to ramp. Very helpful little bugger. Manglehorn is a soft stax piece that always gives me the time I need to start popping off. It's also stopped Isochron Scepter in a pinch.

CyborgAeon: You know, I always believed it had to be universally known to be played that way ( Library ) good to know I wasn't wrong lol. As for your chart idea: That is super intriguing and I would love to see examples of that so that I may apply it to my deck as a tool to improve it. It also sounds visually amazing given how many sleepless nights I've spent reliving the multitude of lines that are available in this deck. For fun, I am going to toss it in for a few nights ( Rings ).

Your Side Note: I literally did something similar last night!!!

Staff was my only card they thought I was out of the game. Tnt had Ad Nauseam so Flash was a ruse. They just didn't expect the Yeva win :D.

CyborgAeon: I wish, since there's a couple things that will go well with it.

Daedalus19876 i originally had both cards in my very first variation of the deck, but removed them as i made it less about selvala untapping, and more about the mana dorks to win a game. I agree i should also increase my land base, but intend to add the good mana rocks and amazing lands down the road, so am already not sure what to remove as is, as many cards have found a home. I'm honestly not even sure of craterhoof anymore. I do intend to add the white counterspell can't remember the name right now, but am not worried about people countering my stuff as a added Staff of Domination so i could go off without people drawing, now selvala is mainly needed so i have a higher life total then everybody when i do go for the insta kill.

I do appreciate your comments, and will keep your suggestions written down, and consider them, thank you for helping!

If you're going to run the locus lands you should play Vesuva , Thespian's Stage , and a spicy Dark Depths for that sweet sweet Stage Depths combo.

Also OG Ugin/Karn are definitely add-ins here, they are far more powerful than the newer ones.

Mox Opal , Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Basalt Monolith , and Rings of Brighthearth are all solid cards here for ramp but might not fit the budget.

If you keep your spells or CMC low to the ground you could do a colorless storm build using Aetherflux Reservoir .

Also I'm a huge fan of Chaos Wand + Engine + Rocks to cast all of everyone's stuff! (serves two purposes, fun and to get rid of those cards so they can't be used against you!).

Codex Shredder is great, it also has a one time recursion ability, unless you play Myr Retriever or Trading Post (strongly suggest the latter).

Not sure why Sculpting Steel isn't already here.

Spine of Ish Sah is great permanent removal that can be reused, with oh say a Trading Post or Ashnod's Altar . Speaking of Ashnod's + Nim Deathmantle + Battlesphere is fun, infinite dudes.

Staff of Domination is a little pricey but... definitely a utility here!

Wurmcoil Engine for SURE belongs in the deck.

Mind's Eye for sure belongs here for some draw power!

Lastly Voltaic Key combos with a lot of stuff in artifacts.

Also I'm much more inclined to encourage the artifact route with some Eldrazi titan's at the top end, than a weird mix like you have now. My artifact deck, Daretti, runs one Ulamog, Ceaseless Hunger as just a top end as it generates a lot of mana naturally... Also gotta love that two Scour From Existences for 4 mana less...

You can add some untap shenanigans: Puppet Strings , Sword of the Paruns (can pump your team for a lethal or just set more Soldier on the field), Nature's Chosen and Quest for Renewal , those cards are budget but you can run some more $$ card like Staff of Domination

For the ramp part, Harrow isn't the best pick cuz you don't care about your Graveyard or putting land in it, but it's an instant, if you have it run it, if not, stay with a kodama's Reach or the best one in this deck Harvest Season , also for ramping Cryptolith Rite & Song of Freyalise are a no-brainer (also 32land isn't a good number, run 36 to be more constant in your games)

Also, Stonybrook Schoolmaster , can't say no about running twice your commander

Once the deck started turning into what it is now, I myself would stutter and it was an absolute drag for my pod as I would sit there thinking for about 10-15mins at the end of someone's turn mindboggled with the amount of things you could possibly do to close efficiently. So I totally sympathize with your "soft serve" comment.

You are very welcome, btw, I just wanted to people to enjoy the craziness that is this deck. So thank you so much for trying it out! :)

The Cloudstone Curio was removed because relying on it was as dependable as Staff of Domination and staff does everything curio hopes to achieve with less pieces. As of right now, Cloudstone Curio might need to stay, since it's a cheaper than Staff of Domination and you still need the contingency plan.

The budget version has had some neglect I'll be honest and upon looking at it there are a few changes that need to be made, and for you sir, I'll get right on them. Give me a week, since I want to play test the changes made as well and hopefully get rid of Cloudstone Curio .

As for your Paradox Engine , Ambush Commander would be your best bet, they clash in terms of synergy. Sorry for taking long on my response, my weekend has been super busy.

PIZZ_PAZZ on A Wannabe Stax Deck (Yisan Budget)

McToters a few of the cards you mentioned I'd already looked at and considered in the past but there are a few in there that I'll definitely have to consider so thanks for suggesting.

First and foremost Paradox Engine , Staff of Domination , and Rings of Brighthearth are sadly out of my price range. In a less budget version of this deck, I would run most if not all of these cards.

Another card that I don't think I will include is Unwinding Clock . as you said I don't have many artifacts I think most of the time it will just be a dead card in my hand. And even when I can use it, I don't think untapping 1 or 2 things for 4 mana is really worth it when I can untap everything with Seedborn Muse , or Quest for Renewal . I've also decided not to use Magewright's Stone , or Magewright's Stone because they're a little too slow.

However Thousand-Year Elixir is a gem of a card and I can't believe I never thought to put it in this deck. The untapping ability is decent, but the added on pseudo- Concordant Crossroads effects make it very good. The only problem is it's gotten a bit more pricey as of recent so I'll have to weigh it's costs to it's contributions.

The combos you mentioned are a little problematic for my purposes. Because my combos are able to be entirely fetched up by Yisan I don't see myself using these too much to be worth putting in the deck. That being said Seeker of Skybreak is absolutely another auto-include. Not only is it a combo piece fetchable by Yisan but enables combos to happen much faster. That's not even mentioning the fact that it's only 30ยข! Of all the cards you recommended this is the one that my deck needs the most.

Anyways thanks for the suggestions I'm always looking for ways to make my deck better and having other people recommend cards is probably the best way.
