Star Compass Discussion

SynergyBuild on Temple of the False God ...

The arguments for temple are almost always either extremely rare (topdecking it turn 5 when you need 6 mana, DIDN'T have ramp turns 1-4, AND hit lands turns 1-4 BUT didn't have land on turn 5 EXCLUDING temple.), require it to be, as Panas said, the 38th lands (therefore almost entirely useless, as it is ramp when you don't need ramp, and card draw would be tons better).

As griffstick explained, it is 50 cents more expensive than a basic land, which is tons better than temple, and over 30 cents more than most cards like Fractured Powerstone , Star Compass , Prismatic Lens , signets, Fellwar Stone , etc.

As dbpunk explained, it is a mostly bad card, and only TypicalTimmy is delusional enough to say it is okay. The rest of us are pretty much in agreement with you triproberts12.

Not sure how much graveyard recursion you intend with your artifacts, but you might like the Corrupted Grafstone , Fellwar Stone , or Star Compass instead of the Sphere of the Suns .

I feel like you can move away the board wipes and substitute with cards like Innocent Blood , Virtus's Maneuver , Dictate of Erebos / Grave Pact , Fleshbag Marauder / Plaguecrafter / Merciless Executioner

You can maybe fill the creature curve too with Copper Myr , Plague Myr , Leaden Myr .

Personally I don't like PW. I think they're way to fragile against three / four other people playing against me.

One thing that always traps people is "any ramp is good" but in reality turn 1/2/3 ramps makes the difference so it's better to use cards like signets, Mind Stone , Charcoal Diamond , Moss Diamond , Star Compass . Personally, Semblance Anvil is doing god's work for me.

It's not bad either to move to some "token strategy" abusing cards like Myr Battlesphere , Marionette Master with Skullclamp .

But overall I like your list and your mentality avoiding the boring Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion combo.

Glissa is an awesome cmd but Black and Green doesn't have a lot of cool interactions with artifacts like Blue and Red.

I'm posting my list soon so stay tunned if you want to dig anything xd.

xaarvaxus Thanks for the feedback! I know what I'm asking for is a bit restricting, but like you said, it's a fun way to see what I can do just using what I have.

I took out Call of the Conclave for Hive Stirrings (which is good because I have a friend in my playgroup who plays Slivers- now maybe I can beat him at his own game.

I took out Star Compass for Obsessive Skinner.

I took out Adamant Will for Rootborn Defenses, now that I realize losing +2/+2 for a turn and an extra mana are totally worth a new token and full board protection.

Finally, I removed Hunter's Prowess because bumping my whole team is a lot better than just bumping Shanna.

Call of the Conclave only makes one token and you don't have a ton of populate effects to crank out 3/3's so I think you'd be better off using something in your maybeboard that makes multiple tokens, ie: Hive Stirrings. I know I'd try to find space for Obsessive Skinner as you shouldn't have a problem getting delirium and getting some tokens above the 1/1 or 2/2 range would be nice. You have a pretty cheap CMC deck so you could probably cut Star Compass. Rootborn Defenses seems to fit in well as a defensive card that incidentally makes a token. Maybe cut one of the auras or giant growth style cards.

Overwhelming Stampede seems like it should be an auto-include here, probably in place of one of the giant growth type cards.

Its kind of constraining to only have the maybeboard to work from as most of the suggestions I'd normally make aren't on there [such as March of the Multitudes, etc] but it is an interesting exercise on how creative you can be from a limited cardpool.

I'd say, add a Gilded Lotus rather than Star Compass. Also why not add Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light?
